Top 10 Best Fully Evolved Starter Pokémon

The Top Ten
1 Primarina Primarina

My favorite final evolved starter ever and my second favorite Pokemon 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 that mega blaziken because fairy is a really good type only having TWO weaknesses. It's handy against Hala and Acerola in the elite four. It has insane sp. attack which is awesome/ bbut combine that with Sparkling Aria and it does 110 damage. INSANITY.

Primarina is my fifth favorite pokemon, she needs more love. She gets bashed on everyday thanks to the god forsaken rowlet, a pokemon that deserves the death penalty

Primarina is just the most beautiful evolution ever! I mean you know right?

2 Swampert 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 8 types. They are both good against steel and rock, so it's 8 not 10. Some idiot said Torterra could easily kill any starter pokemon, 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, well has fire type 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.

If you play ORAS, and you want to counter everybody? Pick Mudkip! Mudkip can counter the rock gym, marshtomp will take down the electric, fire, normal (with protect, since they use Slaking), and flying (with rock moves). Mega Swampert can take out the Psychic gym with surf since they are rock types. In Omega Ruby, the battles will be easier, since Primal Groudon's ability will let you take out the water gym. Together, they will defeat the Elite 4 and destroy Steven's team. Even without the super effectiveness, There is no major grass opponents (except for your rivals Sceptile). Also, Swampert has the highest base stats for any starter. Blaziken is my favorite starter, but stat wise, Swampert is my pick.

He is a water-ground type, which protects it from electricity. It has ONE weakness: grass (although it is a 4-times increase). Swampert more than makes up for this by being able to learn ice-type moves, such as Ice Beam, Ice Punch, Avalanche, and Blizzard. Use Waterfall! Bye-bye, Charizard. Use Ice Punch! Say goodbye to Sceptile. Good luck harming this beast.

Swampert should be best overall starter. Water/ground is unbelievable typing. Only one weakness and it is 4x to grass. Teach him roar and scare away any grass enemies or defeat them with ice beam. Great physical attacker, plus STAB for earthquake is unbelievable. He also evolves from a mudkip which is a really cool starter. This dude NEEDS to be number 1!

3 Charizard 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 more.

Charizard is the best. Makes sense at second place though, because swampert has the best typing. Why do so many people complain that Charizard is overrated? Okay, okay, 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 that people pick for its cuteness, or that weird vegetable that people choose for no reason at all.

Somebody said his lvl49 charizard one shorted lvl65 blastoise with fissure, so what? Any Pokemon can kill it with an Ohko move so that doesn't prove anything. Plus, fissure only works against opponents that have the same level or lower level Pokemon than yours so your situation won't occur now. Other reasons is just reasons like charizard is awesome. Really? Legit reasoning, come on. Somebody already explained why charizard is worse than most other starters, smogon already made two articles and yet some people think it is the best Pokemon there is. So please, if u r a noob, don't vote for this list.

While blastoise is said by many people to be the stronger starter of the kanto starters, charizard has proved this theory wrong many times both in the show and the games, also, charizard can learn many moves the most fire type Pokemon can not.

Charizard saved my chance of beating Blue in Pokemon Red. At the end of the battle, there was no hope left for me. We both had 1 Pokemon left. His completely healthy blastoise, L:65, against my charizard, L:49, which only had 38 hp left. There was only one last hope, fissure. Pressed A, and it! I became Pokemon champion. It was a miracle.

4 Typhlosion 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!

5 Infernape 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. 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 it's 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 likening him a lot after the finals in the anime against electavire.

What about ground type

Infernape is the best

6 Samurott 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 opportunity with Samurott when it comes to typing, movepool, and stats but I love him for his creative design and him 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 I'd 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 and 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.

One word: Oshawott. He's flipping adorable. And Samurott is a Samurai Ninja! You know, the one before Greninja? Samurott was a ninja first. I like you and all Greninja but...Samurott did it first.

Oshawott was my starter and first Pokemon and was always reliable. After becoming a Samurott it never fails to impress me with it's strength and endurance. It is the formidable Pokemon after all

7 Blaziken 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 it is powerful and fast. It might have low defense but if it defeats it's 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 it's generation, It was the original fire/fighting type that all the others try to copy, it's mega form was in Uber tier, and it looks like an absolute badass.

Fighting and Fire type made Blaziken just a total badass. This dude was like a sensei, and having blaze kick and sky uppercut in the same arsenal was unparalleled. I raised at least 3 level 100's of these guys.

8 Feraligatr 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 tough I think that are better starter pokemon, I noticed such a potential in this guy since his coverage, ice puch, is actually good combined with the sheer force, being probably the best user of a move kinda underrated. Superpower, Aqua Jet, Swords Dance and Earthquake are here too to make his opponents shiver.

My fourth favorite Pokemon (Croconaw is my 1st). This thing is usable in-game and competitively, and 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.

My little bro has a level 80 Feraligatr and it's so powerful! Man, vote Feraligatr up people, that water jet is crazy powerful and those strong legs... Feraligatr is boss man

Id just beasts any starter. With this I single-handedly took out my rivals team including a meganium. It learns loads of ice moves to counter grass types

9 Blastoise 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 leaf green. Why isn't he higher?

This boy is a living water tank he should be higher I mean come on he a darn tank make this guy hire in the list like top 3.

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

Should be up there with charizard.

10 Greninja 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 more.

Protein 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!

It does not need a mega stone and it has the highest bast stat only from its ability it has amazing special attack when ash greninja also amazing speed.

What! I'm the same person that complained about Emboar being in the top five. I love Greninja! Screw Emboar, Greninja should be in the top ten AT LEAST!

Greninja is the best. Who can say no to a awesome water ninja. With its amazing speed and protean ability. STAB on every attack, yes please

The Contenders
11 Delphox 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.

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

People hate it because of its design. But does a pokemon have to look good to be strong.

I love pokemon that are girly whatever you think. If you agree, I am with you.

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

What! What! That's impossible! Really impossible! Sceptile number 14! Mega Sceptile and Mega Charizad X are the only fully evolved starter dragon - type pokemon. And Swampert number 2! Swampert is weaker than my FAVOURITE POKEMON SCEPTILE.
It can learn energy ball, bullet seed, leaf blade, frenzy plant, dragon claw, dragon tail, headbutt, leaf storm and overgrow. Its attack becomes double if this super Pokémon uses overgrow. And Swamper, Blastoise, Feraligatar, Primarina, Samurott and Greninja are actually water types and weaker than this King. Most people think that only fire and water types are best. But hey don't know that grass types are capable of defeating fire types. So Go! VOTE for NATURE SAVER SCEPTILE!

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 a amazing mega. And he can do some damage.

It is the fastest grass type and the fastest dragon type ever. Also, high special attack.

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

OMG I love Torterra, It has the upper hand on BOTH Sinnoh starters and looks so freaken cool. (Turtles and Tortoises are my favorite animals so that's why I love Torterra.

Torterra is one of the strongest starters I've ever trained and it can beat fire and flying types as well. It beat every Pokemon except for Gym leader Candice's Abomasnow and some other quicker ice types such as Weavile.

This is my personal favourite 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?

Tor terra is definitely one of the most powerful Pokemon in diamond. I beat all of my opponents until I reached the ice gym with just my tor terra!

14 Empoleon 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, & therefore has the most resistance to all of the typings, cutting 8 of them in half, 2 of them to a quarter strength, and 1 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!

My Empoleon beats up my rival's Torterra every time! I just taught it drill peck and adios Torterra! My Empoleon beat the Electric gym by itself just using Surf. Water is definitely the best starter choice and Empoleon gets steel which gives it so much more resistance than the other starters. Empoleon is the best!

Along with Swampert Empoleon is by far the strongest final evolution for a starter in the game. Hell back in diamond and pearl I was able to solo the Sinnoh elite 4 and champ (the hardest out of all Pokémon games) with just Empoleon. A pure beast

I think Empoleon is pretty cool and should be rated higher because Piplup is my all time favourite starter.

15 Serperior 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 3rd 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 1HKOd a Charizard with this thing.

It can learn leaf blade and leaf storm. This can beat the swampert over there that is now 2nd place and now this serperior is 12th place?! The snivy in the anime can beat Ash's pikachu that has fought from 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 10 times stronger than Ash's pikachu! VOTE FOR SERPERIOR!

Yes! Snivy is the best gen 5 starter that even looks decent in its final evolution. How can that ugly pig or the bizarre I-don't-know-what-that-is water thing higher on the list than the awesome serperior?

Contrary to popular beLeaf. Haha contrary and leaf storm + high base speed. Pretty cute! It's on par with Sceptile in regards to coolness. Wait for the mega evolution, possibly Grass/Dark?

16 Venusaur 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 and 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

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

Emboar sucks SO BAD! Plus, another fire/fighting Pokemon. Not in my house! At least the other fire/fighting Pokemon are good and can kick ass. I mean, emboar lost to his pre evolution. He should definitely be lower!

Blaziken? Ew. It's A damn KICKING CHICKEN seriously?!? Infernape? It's.. a ugly.. Monkey? Now, emboar is a different story. It looks cool, it's VERY strong, I could go on, and on and on. Let me tell you a story. 10 year old me just got a DSlite after losing my first one, and after being newly addicted to Pokémon, got Pokémon black with it. I started the game up and started playing. I chose Tepig cause my favorite type is fire and he looked absolutely adorable. I was new to all of it so I went along, training and catching every adorable thing I saw, and I trained like crazy and beat the first gym after Tepig (who I named Piggy) evolved. I was so proud and he still looked cute. I finally got the hang of type advantages and after losing many times I finally beat the 2nd Gym with armthrust. I still have it on my move set. He annihalted the 3rd gym, and the 4th Took a while because I needed to get through the Gerri's wheel. After a long break I came back and beat my way through 5th and ...more

This is the stupidest starter ever. The third fire-fighting starter IN A ROW, and he just sucks. Fighting type in general is terrible.

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)

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

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

Chesnaught is easily the most powerful. He's really loyal and will use his own body to protect those that he loves. ❤ Chesnaught

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

Meganium is a majestic Pokemon that I think looks cool.

20 Decidueye Decidueye

This was my original Rowlet and I was really suprised when it turned to Grass/Ghost typing! This is the best 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!

A grass/ghost type that can learn flying type moves and has it's own Z-Crystal. Need I say more?

A owl that shoots arrows. How did you pull that one off game freak

Guys I need to get a card for myself!

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

Litten is my starter on Pokemon Brink Bronze (a ROBLOX game not a real pokemon game) but Popplio is my starter on Pokemon 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!

Sadly, I just chose this starter in Sun and Moon to see how much it sucks...And they were right...

How did Typhlosion, Emboar, Decidueye, and and Primarina get higher in the list!

22 Raichu 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 learn quick attacks before evolving in Raichu, it can wreck PIkachu once got hyper beamed to the face by a Raichu. The only reason Pikachu has beaten Raichu is becuase it was slow. Raichu also has many advantages from evolving, like advanced hearing (which I just found out) and a longer tail.

This comment is for the person who put (Raichu isn't even a starter evolution! ) if you ever played pokemon yellow the only pokemon you start with is a pikachu then you get a thunderstone plus a little trading back an forth of the same starting pikachu then it'll take the stupid stone then you have the raichu which I might add can one shot a charizard, blastoise, an some of the others on the top of the list

Raichu technically isn't a starter. In the video games, you can only catch Pikachu and Pichu, not start with them.

Raichu deserves more recognition. Pikachu can die

23 Cinderace Cinderace

She looks nice. She should be higher!
