Top 10 Best Fully Evolved Starter Pokémon

The Top Ten
1 Primarina

My favorite final evolved starter ever and my second favorite Pokémon overall. It was a joy going through the game with Primarina, and I always bring it with me in online battles and official competitions.

Primarina is better than Mega Blaziken because Fairy is a really good type with only two weaknesses. It's handy against Hala and Acerola in the Elite Four. It has insane special attack, which is awesome. Combine that with Sparkling Aria, and it does 110 damage. INSANITY.

Primarina is my fifth favorite Pokémon. She needs more love. She gets bashed on every day thanks to the godforsaken Rowlet, a Pokémon that deserves the death penalty.

2 Swampert Swampert, known in Japan as Laglarge, is a Pokémon species in Nintendo and Game Freak's Pokémon franchise.

Swampert is really strong, and it can learn a decent variety of moves to counter a lot of different types, like Earthquake and Hammer Arm, which together can counter eight types. They are both good against Steel and Rock, so it's eight, not ten. Some idiot said Torterra could easily kill any starter Pokémon, but honestly, it's one of the worst starters and is the slowest starter too.

All the Water-type starters can learn Ice Beam, and Fire types have fire moves. Sure, it may survive and land an Earthquake or Rock Slide (for Charizard), but it is most likely going to lose. I'm sorry for those who love Torterra, but it's honestly not that good.

3 Typhlosion Typhlosion, known in Japan as Bakphoon, is a Pokémon species in Nintendo and Game Freak's Pokémon franchise.

Typhlosion is just awesome! Even his name just sounds cool! And his design as well as its evolution family! And strong too! It should get a Mega Evolution.

My first Pokémon was Cyndaquil. I have always been attached to Typhlosion, and I would consider it a better starter than all other starters, even though it's only a single type.

Come on! He's the world champion for 2011!

4 Charizard Charizard, known in Japan as Lizardon, is a Pokémon species in Nintendo and Game Freak's Pokémon franchise. Created by Ken Sugimori, Charizard first appeared in the video games Pokémon Red and Blue and subsequent sequels. They have later appeared in various merchandise, spinoff titles and animated... read more

Charizard is the best. It makes sense at second place, though, because Swampert has the best typing. Why do so many people complain that Charizard is overrated? Okay, okay, it probably is a bit overrated, but if it had the best stats over the other two starters, Bulbasaur and Squirtle wouldn't stand a chance of being chosen as a starter.

Even so, this dragon is still chosen most often out of Gen 1. Stop complaining that Charizard is overrated and go thank the creators for nerfing it enough to give a little more love to that turtle people pick for its cuteness or that weird vegetable that people choose for no reason at all.

5 Infernape Infernape, known in Japan as Goukazaru, is a Pokémon species in Nintendo and Game Freak's Pokémon franchise.

Fire-Fighting has neutrality to Stealth Rock. It is extremely fast and can dish out some crazy high damage, especially if equipped with a Choice Band. Infernape manages to deal super-effective damage against both other final evolution starters in its generation, which is extremely impressive. Also, it's faster than Blaziken, so ggez.

The monkey is awesome and has good stats. I will say I started liking him a lot after the finals in the anime against Electivire.

Fighting Fire. Even though it's a recycled idea, it's good typing.

6 Samurott Samurott, known in Japan as Daikenki, is a Pokémon species in Nintendo and Game Freak's Pokémon franchise.

They have missed a lot of opportunities with Samurott when it comes to typing, movepool, and stats, but I love him for his creative design and overall. I don't see how a generic orange lizard can be more creative than a samurai shell-armored otter/sea lion who pulls swords out of his arms. You mess with Samurott, you mess with his double swords.

Come on, Oshawott is adorable, Dewott is, well, cute in its own way, and Samurott is pretty epic. In-game, he's very good. Swords Dance at least once and get ready to sweep. I actually use him on Battle Spot. He actually takes down a few opponents.

A new strategy I came up with is: EV train 184 Special Defense EVs, 72 Defense EVs, and 252 Attack. The moveset is Substitute, Swords Dance, Aqua Jet, and Razor Shell or Megahorn, your choice. The item is Salac Berry. I'll give my Samurott this set soon, but he has beaten many foes on Pokémon Showdown with this set.

7 Feraligatr Feraligatr, known in Japan as Ordile, is a Pokémon species in Nintendo and Game Freak's Pokémon franchise.

Its access to the probably best boosting move, Dragon Dance, makes it such a hard hitter combined with Sheer Force and a Life Orb. So even though I think there are better starter Pokémon, I noticed such potential in this guy since his coverage, Ice Punch, is actually good combined with Sheer Force. He's probably the best user of an underrated move.

Superpower, Aqua Jet, Swords Dance, and Earthquake are here too, to make his opponents shiver.

My fourth favorite Pokémon (Croconaw is my first). This thing is usable in-game and competitively. Since the physical/special split in Gen 4, it's become a real beast. It has coverage against almost everything, and it can really make use of its hidden ability, Sheer Force.

8 Blaziken Blaziken, known in Japan as Bashāmo, is a Pokémon species in Nintendo and Game Freak's Pokémon franchise.

Mega Blaziken is one of the toughest fully evolved starters in the game. The original Fire/Fighting and the toughest one. Should easily be a top 5 with Greninja. They are the only two starters in the Uber tier for competitive battling.

Blaziken is the best starter in my opinion. Sure, its shiny could've been better, but it is powerful and fast. It might have low defense, but if it defeats its opponent before he takes damage, he's really good. So he is the best starter in my opinion.

It's got Speed Boost, it got a Mega form before the others of its generation, it was the original Fire/Fighting type that all the others try to copy, its Mega form was in Uber tier, and it looks like an absolute badass.

9 Torterra Torterra, known in Japan as Dodaitose, is a Pokémon species in Nintendo and Game Freak's Pokémon franchise.

Torterra is one of the strongest starters I've ever trained, and it can beat Fire and Flying types as well. It beat every Pokémon except for Gym Leader Candice's Abomasnow and some other quicker Ice types such as Weavile.

This is my personal favorite design for any starter despite its lackluster competitive appearance. I may well be doused in nostalgia, but how is a huge turtle with a tree on its back not cool?

Torterra is definitely one of the most powerful Pokémon in Diamond. I beat all of my opponents until I reached the Ice gym with just my Torterra!

10 Greninja Greninja is a Water/Dark type Pokemon introduced in Gen 6. It is the evolved form of Frogadier and the final evolved form of the water starter Froakie. Aside from the usual Torrent ability all Water starters have (Which raises the power of its Water moves), it also has the ability Protean, which changes... read more

Greninja is my favorite Pokémon ever. Is it overrated? Probably. Why did Game Freak give it Ash-Greninja? I don't know. But is it a freaking awesome frog ninja that darts in and out of the shadows and can literally slice metal with its shurikens? Heck yeah.

Protean Greninja is unreal. Confuse your enemies by changing type and always hitting with STAB attacks. He is the fastest fully evolved starter, so he will always attack first. He is also pretty badass looking. Should easily be top 5 in my opinion!

The Contenders
11 Emboar Emboar, known in Japan as Enbuoh, is a Pokémon species in Nintendo and Game Freak's Pokémon franchise.

Why do people hate him so much? He's awesome! Besides his bad speed, he kicks ass! While Blaziken and Infernape are better competitively, they're so overused that using them just feels unoriginal and redundant. This guy is rad and took me through Unova in BW with no problems (didn't choose him for B2W2).

Tepig was my starter, and Emboar is incredibly powerful and reliable.

12 Blastoise Blastoise, known in Japan as Kamex, is a Pokémon species in Nintendo and Game Freak's Pokémon franchise.

He's literally a hippo with tanks in his shell. He is super powerful and dominated all competition in LeafGreen. Why isn't he higher?

This boy is a living water tank. He should be higher. I mean, come on, he's a darn tank. Make this guy higher in the list, like top 3.

This guy's awesome. Too bad he lives in a region with such good Water-types.

13 Delphox Delphox, known in Japan as Mahoxy, is a Pokémon species in Nintendo and Game Freak's Pokémon franchise.

Delphox isn't in the top 10? Better nerf Greninja! Seriously though, Delphox is awesome and deserves more love than the chestnut and overrated ninja. I don't hate Greninja, he just is way too popular and Delphox is better.

A good starter. Delphox is overall a good starter Pokémon. Making it a Fire/Psychic type makes it not weak to Bug types. It's weak to Ground, Rock, Dark, and Ghost. I chose it because it has so much Special Attack!

It can take down almost any Pokémon. Delphox is my star in competitive battles. It's so cool.

14 Empoleon Empoleon, known in Japan as Emperte, is a Pokémon species in Nintendo and Game Freak's Pokémon franchise.

How the hell is this so far down? The only Steel-type final evolution of a starter, and therefore, it has the most resistance to all typings, cutting eight of them in half, two of them to a quarter strength, and one with completely no effect! Charizard is easily overrated (DUH, as one of the first starters) and could easily be defeated by Empoleon with the wide variety of moves it can learn.

Might I add, one of, if not the best, shiny coloration of all starters!

Empoleon is decent. I like the steel dual typing, and it's overall pretty cool. Unlike the other idiot who commented here, I'm not gonna say that the shiny is the best starter coloration. It's actually probably one of the worst. For example, Charizard, Greninja, Delphox, Decidueye, heck, even Venusaur's is better than Empoleon.

15 Sceptile Sceptile, known in Japan as Jukain, is a Pokémon species in Nintendo and Game Freak's Pokémon franchise.

This guy is awesome. I won't say that it's "stronger than Swampert" like everyone else is saying. It only beats Swampert because it has the type advantage, but it's still really good.

What the heck, Sceptile should be much higher. Grass as a whole is definitely weaker than Fire and Water, but Sceptile learns awesome moves and is one of the fastest Grass types.

He has one of the highest stats for starters. He has an amazing mega. And he can do some damage.

16 Serperior Serperior, known in Japan as Jalorda, is a Pokémon species in Nintendo and Game Freak's Pokémon franchise.

I don't know why Serperior is this low. It should be at least in third place. Contrary + Leaf Storm + other moves (Dragon Pulse/Hidden Power Fire/Giga Drain) is honestly overpowered as hell and is only countered by, like... Heatran. It sweeps pretty much everything else. I've 1HKO'd a Charizard with this thing.

It can learn Leaf Blade and Leaf Storm. This can beat the Swampert over there that is now in second place, and now this Serperior is in 12th place?! The Snivy in the anime can beat Ash's Pikachu that has fought in Kalos, Johto, Hoenn, and Sinnoh! This Pikachu must be like level 100 or even more! But the Pikachu getting beaten up by a level 5 Snivy? Come on!

Plus, if this super-strong Snivy has evolved to a Serperior, that means it can be ten times stronger than Ash's Pikachu! VOTE FOR SERPERIOR!

17 Chesnaught Chesnaught, known in Japan as Brigarron, is a Pokémon species in Nintendo and Game Freak's Pokémon franchise.

Honestly, Chesnaught needs some love. He has a cool design and pretty good attacks.

How is Chesnaught here? He's a beast! How is Typhlosion in No. 3? He sucks!

Such a cool design. Truly underrated.

18 Incineroar Incineroar, known in Japan as Gaogaen, is a Pokémon species in Nintendo and Game Freak's Pokémon franchise.

Litten is my starter on Pokémon Brick Bronze (a Roblox game, not a real Pokémon game), but Popplio is my starter on Pokémon Moon, and I love it so much!

Team Litten For Life! Kellan the Incineroar is pretty much impossible to beat! He has brought me a lot of new memories! Thanks!

He is a powerful and loving guy. I don't get why we need to hate him. Two legs, fire (looking like a fighter but NOT), or he is bipedal, why hate him?! Aren't ALL fire starters like this?!

19 Venusaur Venusaur, known in Japan as Fushigibana, is a Pokémon species in Nintendo and Game Freak's Pokémon franchise.

What the hell, why is this thing so low?

Mega Venusaur can tank both Charizard and Blastoise. Venusaur has the most original design of the three! A dragon! A turtle! (Didn't mean that, Blastoise, you're cool too, but Charizard's stupid and overrated.)

Venusaur is very strong and should be ranked much higher than this.

20 Meganium Meganium, known in Japan as the same name, is a Pokémon species in Nintendo and Game Freak's Pokémon franchise.

Meganium is really good. It actually one-shots every Pokémon I battle in my Pokémon games. It evolves pretty fast, too.

Meganium is a majestic Pokémon that I think looks cool.

21 Decidueye

This was my original Rowlet, and I was really surprised when it turned to Grass/Ghost typing! This is the best if you make it evolve during the Melemele Island trials because it is immune to Normal/Fighting type attacks. Vote Decidueye up to #1!

Now THIS one is very detailed, and I believe this Pokémon has a Hisuian form. I like the colors. I like birds. This is a big like and subscribe for me.

Decidueye is super underrated. Its archer design is so cool.

22 Cinderace

Cinderace is definitely one of my favorite, if not my favorite, Pokémon. Certainly the best starter in the Galar region. Pyro Ball severely weakens Grass types, and it's kind of an overpowered move.

Cinderace is a pretty decent Pokémon. Not my favorite ever, but it's probably my favorite Galar starter.

She looks nice. She should be higher!

23 Raichu Raichu, known in Japan as the same name, is a Pokémon species in Nintendo and Game Freak's Pokémon franchise.

Raichu is underrated. It can use Hyper Beam. If it learns Quick Attack before evolving into Raichu, it can wreck Pikachu. Pikachu once got Hyper Beamed to the face by a Raichu. The only reason Pikachu has beaten Raichu is because it was slow. Raichu also has many advantages from evolving, like advanced hearing (which I just found out) and a longer tail.

Pretty cool and underrated Pokémon. Honestly, it's not really the best, but it's got a cool design.

24 Rillaboom

Drums and gorilla, and it has a busted signature move.

25 Inteleon

Inteleon is a great starter because it is only weak to the first and easiest gym. Also, it feels great defeating Leon's Charizard. Lastly, Fire types are the strongest type, so its super effective Water moves are key.
