Best Normal Type Pokemon

The Top Ten
1 Arceus Arceus is a legendary Pokémon from the Pókemon series. He first appeared in the 18th Pokémon movie alongside other Legendary Pokémon.

Arceus can be cool but the only reason it's up here is because its "OP" Pretty much any Pokemon can be OP if you bring out their strengths and defend their weaknesses. Just because one person says,"Oh Arceus is so cool" That's just their opinion. That doesn't mean it is OP. My opinion personally is that Arceus is horrible. I mean think. It's just a big lub of white. And it's a tiny goat with fingernails for feet. What an ugly looking thing. Who thought this was so cool. Why not give any other Pokemon a chance. Even if it can change forms so what? You can only have one form in battle and you can't use it if you are in an official Pokemon competition.

Arceus is probably the weakest Pokemon, Nintendo said it themselves that Deoxys is the strongest, not to mention groudon and kyogre formed earth, arceus is just over powered. It is stupid how they waste their time creating a cool looking Pokemon that they sadly ruined by making it a normal type.

Arceus has the greatest stat total of any Pokemon after mega Mewtwo, but that doesn't count. Not to mention customization, it learns moves from most types and is able to learn most every HM and TM, it's stats are even the same, all of his stats are 120 so in Special training you can easily make a stat bigger

I don't want to even ask why Arceus is not Number one, Jugdement is an esay way for saying bye bye and if on a pyramid, it be up in the heavens. Staraptor is a stage 2 and the more powerful it is basic the better. Also Change it to Zap Plate or Icicle Plate to beat Flying-normal types.

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

I think snorlax is op because of the fact of all of those bulk moves. It can keep survivingand eventually just ill everything with fire punch and hyper beam.

Gen 1 power house. Seriously, put leftovers on and with its massive HP and Attack stat combined with high Defense. It has a giant move pool including rest for when leftovers aren't bringing him back to max. Sleep talk for when your resting. Than you have your choice of 2 others for massive damage. I'd say Arceus, but I don't believe Legendaries should be on top lists. They are legendary for a reason.

One of the most popular or unique pokemon of the first generation. I don't understand why Arceus is #1 since it's a pokemon that can change its type. Snorlax only downside is its speed. It's movepool is devastating; can learn moves such as hyper beam, body slam, mega punch, mega kick, ice punch, rest etc. Also, one of the most recognisable pokemon.

This Pokémon is one of the ones with the most humor in it. In Sun and Moon and Ultra Sun and Ultra Moon, it has its own z-move, "Pulverizing pancake" Looks incredibly awesome! Also, it has a good moveset. If you get to know Yawn, Stomp, Giga Impact, and weather ball, then that would really help you through the elite four and the champion. In fact, Snorlax be number one in this list in my opinion. But what I'm saying is is that Snorlax is one of the boats best normal type Pokémon in all of Pokémon.

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

Staraptor is a awesome Pokemon. mainly its because he is a flying type AND learns close combat (when I get the chance I am gonna see if it can learn focus blast) so rock types are doomed! BUT close combat does lower some stats (can't remember what... ) overall it is a good Pokemon to have

He is the best normal type EVER.
On the DS I had a level 53 (or 54) Staraptor and it THRASHED the Champ.
I put this guy at number 1 for a list called Top ten Non-legendary Sinnoh Pokemon (A remix). (or something like that. ) So Staraptor should get like 1 million votes.

With Brave Bird, Close Combat, Roost and U-turn, it's ready to defeat everyone. And, a flying type with Close Combat, you gotta admit that's cool. I caught a shiny Staraptor 5 years ago, and I still have it. Of course, its moveset is the one I proposed at the begining.

This is the first ever pokemon I got after chimchar, Always have him in my team unless trading, once Cynthia was running strong and I had only staraptor, he took down 2 opponents with full health!

4 Slaking Slaking, known in Japan as Kekking, is a Pokémon species in Nintendo and Game Freak's Pokémon franchise.

I find that slaking is the only pokemon with an ability that weaken the user that make sense. Regigigas is a legenary so slow start doesn't make sense and golisopod and archeops don't even have op stats! Slaking, however, have the biggest non-legendary stats, can be find very early in the game and truant represent his personality. But if you want a OP slaking, play balanced hackmon on showdown. (Fun fact: one time, slaking was my hm slave in ORAS and I was fighting against may with half of my team ko'd. Then slaking helped me in the battle and I won! )

Look at the stats of this monster! Because I think that legendaries should be exempt from being voted, Slaking is the runner up as best normal Pokemon. (I don't even know why staraptor is higher than this guy, staraptor isn't even a pure bred normal Pokemon. That guy should be disqualified/exempt from this list)

The reason Slaking even HAS Truant is literally because it's so ridiculously OP. It has the highest base stats of any non mega or legendary. If they ever gave this thing a mega, we're all gonna die.

This should be number one on this list. Traunt's affects totally make up for the loss of turns, destroying the entire opposite team. Almost nothing can stop this thing when it's on a rampage. My favorite normal type.

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

Ditto can be changed into any Pokemon. Now this move is really a cool one. Just think if he changes to arceus now that's a matter to be think about... But UNFORTUNATELY HE can't.

Basically any pokemon. While can be countered if the pokemon your copying carries a choice item, it still is a headache to deal with.

HELLO! This thing can transform into any pokemon. IT can just knock down arceus by transforming into better pokemon (no offense to arcus fans ).DITTO ROCKS

Ditto has weak stats and he can only transform to the pokemon on the battlefield. But he is cute.

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

When I played any Pokemon game, I used a jigglypuff because of my combination of sing and a mixture of moves like: waterpulse, energyball, thunderbolt, psychic, earthquake, icebeam, and the list goes on... Plus it has a heck of a lot of HP especially when it evolves into wigglytuff, and besides... Who can hate a cute Pokemon?

Jigglypuff is amazing I crushed a charizard with it. It should be number one instead of a stupid deer some people say did but did not create the world, space, and Pokemon.

Put people to sleep that's what Jigglypuff does it's useless! To see if it was good I tried using it against the elite four and it was just crushed it shouldn't even be on this list it should be 20

It is amazingly incredible Pokemon.

7 Porygon-Z Porygon-Z, known in Japan as the same name, is a Pokémon species in Nintendo and Game Freak's Pokémon franchise.

It's ridiculous. Download raises one stat, generally a good switch-in on something with a lower special defense than defense (that's how it works). Adaptability is also insane for the 2 times STAB boost.

Even better, 7th gen Z-moves. Z-Conversion is a popular move that not only changes the type but raises every stat by 1 stage, excluding accuracy and evasion.

Its pre-evolution won't get ko'ed with eviolite, but this can sweep with access to discharge, psyshock, tri-attack, etc. In a tough spot? Use recover and keep sweeping.

My set? Never use it much. Maybe a special sweeper with Life Orb.

Oh come on! I understand kinda because it is hard to get a PorygonZ (grind 9999 coins at GameCorner, get the UpGrade and DubiousDisk, yea I realize) But PorygonZ has 535 base stat total, and a 135 base special attack, one of the highest in the game. Not only that, but I pretty high speed to top off. As for move pool, Nasty Plot to make you even more stronger, then Tri Attack, Discharge, and SignalBeam, covering a lot of different typing so you get super effectives a lot. So, overall bad ass normal type Pokemon.

Also, if your PorygonZ has the Adaptability ability, get Conversion instead of Nasty Plot, and make sure that Discharge is the first in your movelist, and then Discharge will get extra STAB damage and hurt more.

Porygon Z is a great special attacker with a powerful movepool.
It also is genderless, preventing charm and captivate to fail. It can learn zap cannon, to stop fairy types. Porygon Z also only weak to fighting, and can counter fighting types easily with psychic. Lastly, he is an amazing support Pokemon, with moves like trick room. He should be in the top 5 at least.

Tri Attack. It also has three really good abilities in Analytic, Adaptability and Download, and some people use all of them in their sets. It has a good special and physical moveset, and while it's special attack is higher, if you have download, you might want a mixed porygon. Tri-Attack, Nasty Plot, and, of course, Conversion 2.

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

Being a normal type, Zangoose has excellent offensive capabilities and has an excellent move pool. Its attack and speed makes up for its poor defences and mediocre HP. Zangoose gains access to very good moves like its signature Crush Claw, Close Combat and Brick Break and even Shadow Ball back when it was physical. Give it a Focus Sash with Swords Dance and this thing becomes a beast. Great design, great utility, great Pokemon

Zangoose looks like a Rabit Chicken! No offense to Zangoose fans but I'm not into Zangoose as much as you are, Zangoose may have awesome attacks! I do have a reason to kind of like Zangoose and that is because it can learn the move 'False Swipe'! X-scissor and Swords Dance are another way to win! The only problem with most moves Zangoose can learn can't affect ghost and not very effective against Steel and Rock and weak to fighting! I do have a lot to say about Zangoose! To make Zangoose stronger you can add a Ghost type to it and more moves to match it with even strength against Ghost Types and having a good advantage against Other Normal types Fighting types but a disadvantage to Dark Types Fairy types and that is a downside to adding it! I hope you agree with me about Zangoose and we can help Zangoose get stronger! Who agrees?

Zangoose is strong and cool looking. With Facade doubling damage after Toxic Orb activating, and having the ability Toxic Boost, it can sweep with just that, OR Simply Swords Dance & Crush Claw Sweep your opponent! Plus, Embargo prevents your opponent from using items! It can also learn Close Combat, and not to mention it's Attack stat is greater than a Lucario's!

Just Sword Dance and Slash or Crush Claw can very quickly turn this guy into a split-pushing juggernaut. Also has a cool, if rather bland, backstory with Seviper and that scar thing on its chest. Some speed boosting and he'd practically be unstoppable on start up.

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

Despite a terrible ability and a lacklustre moveset, I think just the sheer design and stats of this Pokemon is what makes it stand out for me. The first Pokemon game I ever played was Pokemon sapphire and the whole discovery and mystery of unlocking the regis is one of my favourite moments in Pokemon history. When 4th gen finally came out, I knew I had to capture Regigigas just for the nostalgia. Call me what you want, but I think Regigigas deserves to be in the top 10 normal types!

Regigigas sucks because it's ability, but I still see potential in this thing. I saw so much potential that I bothered to train it to level 100. Get it Toxic/Thunder Wave. Regigigas is a good Toxic/Thunder Wave staller because it is a bulky Pokémon. Also give it Hyper Beam for the damage coverage. Don't forget CRUSH GRIP because it is it's signature move. Finally, Zen Headbutt to take care of Fighting- types. It could be replaced by Earthquake, because it is a powerful move. What I am trying to say is that Regigigas is not as bad as you might think.

Everyone here lisin to the best newes in your life I heard a rumor about game freak is going too make primal reversion for the Regis and regigigas so it will lose its slow start ability. I don't know what ability it will have but I hope it isn't lousy like justify or another slow start. please game freak do not wreak the poor Regis and regigigas who is the weakest of them all.

Maybe if you cheated you can put skill swap on Regigigas and use it to switch slow start with another ability? But you can make Regi learn substitute to stall out the slow start and maybe something like drain punch to keep it up because of his high attack and defense

10 Eevee Eevee, known in Japan as Eievui, is a Pokémon species in Nintendo and Game Freak's Pokémon franchise.

Don't hate on Eevee! In Sw/Sh It could learn TR Shadow ball! SHADOW BALL. So it could use super affective move against ghost types! I also made Eevee learn dig. And if you train up your eevee good then you can make it a OP pokemon. I trained up my eevee hard and outsped almost every pokemon in my way. Yes, It is a little overrated just because it is cute, and also they only love it because of Eeveeloutions, but if you actually try making a eevee strong, you'll end up loving Eevee.

Eevee is love
Eevee is life

Eevee is an underrated Pokemon. She is so cute, and has eight different evolutions. She had all sorts of powerful moves such as bite, and skull bash. She can beat a Pokemon with the wonder guard ability easy, since normal and fighting moves are effective against this ability. Eevee is the best normal type ever.

Just because eevee is cute doesn't mean it's good. When you say it can evolve into 8 forms, you are saying those evolution's are good, not eevee itself. Eevee is an overrated Pokemon simply because of it's evolution's, not it's stats, ability, or anything else.

First off. Eevee being cute doesn't make it the best. Second, Eevee being eevee has terrible stats and it is OVERRATED for having 8 cookie cutter evolutions. By cookie cutter I mean they are foxes that were painted and decorated. Thank you.

The Contenders
11 Ursaring

Ursaring is awesome! When you put a Flame Orb on it and it has the Guts ability paired with Facade..It wrecks the opponents! Also,it's pre-evolution Teddiursa has a Crescent Moon shape on it's forehead,and Ursaring has what could be described as a Full Moon shape on it's belly! Could this be a possible mega evolution for Sun and Moon?!

EV train Ursaring in Atk and you've got on darn good physical sweeper with only one weakness, first use a Pokemon which can set up Light screen and Reflect, or Barrier and Iron defense, Swords Dance and Baton pass, Having ursaring with 2x definitely sp.definitely and ATK makes for one kick ass power house.

Ursaring can destroy any wall - especially when it's holding a toxic orb. Few can withstand the mighty guts-boosted facade off of a base 130 attack!

Ursaring is awesome and its special ability Guts can really help in some battles.
Plus, it learns some strong moves.

12 Bouffalant

OH MY GOSH! Ghetsis's Bouffalant, not Hydreigon, literally wrecked my whole team on black and white. Not to mention a wild one with lower levels than me took out a few Pokemon two. I had to get my Chandelure in JUST to take this things Head Charge. It seriously OHKO'ed my whole team except him, no boosts. VOTE BOUFFALANT

The bash buffalo pokemon is the best nromal type, by far. It has monster attack with gret defense and even Sp. Defense! Giga Impact, Megahorn, Head Charge, Take Down, The list goes on. Vote for this powerhouse!

Head Charge wrecks anything that doesn't resist think about that if you gave it a Choice Scarf.

The champion alder uses him for a reason, if he becomes our good friend then you unbeatable!

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

In my opinion blissey is, after shuckle, the best WALL in the game. it has 255 HP stat wich comes down to 714 HP at level 100. I'll admit: its attack and defense suck, but when you're searching for a special wall for your team, Blissey is the one you're looking for. It's very good like snorlax and slaking, but blissey is overloaded with instant-recovery moves. I may hate pink Pokemon, but blissey is the exception, just because it can last long in battle.

You want to use it as a support, by putting aromatherapy and wish on it, but if you want to attack with it, make sure you put Sp. Attack EVs on it, it's the only stats besides health that is useable. Thunder Wave to paralyse, then you have a pretty good selection of special moves to use.
Just make sure you switch it out from rock types, and especially fighting types.

With Blisseys HP getting up to 714 combined with it's incredible special defense, it takes almost no damage. Although it has crappy attack, its special attack is ok, at 75 base. I you just teach it special attacks it wrecks. My Blissey in Diamond has Ice Beam, Flamethrower, Grass Knot, and Thunderbolt and wrecks everything.

Blissey is an awesome massive pokemon. It can use Thunder, Psychic, or almost any moves that can Kill other pokemon that are in your way. It is also awesome cause it can use softboiled to heal itself AND heal its teammates. All in one, its an awesome Tank

14 Kangaskhan

Mega Kangaskan with power up punch, sucker punch, drain punch, return/fake out. Wicked powerful.

Mega kangaskhan, power up punch, outrage.

Mega Kangaskhan is perhaps one of the best megas out there, parental bond + power up punch really makes is a threat

Really, do I have attached explain? That mega is TOO op, no matter

15 Miltank Miltank, known in Japan as ミルタンク, is a Pokémon species in Nintendo and Game Freak's Pokémon franchise. It was introduced in Generation II of the series and is a female only species categorized as the Milk Cow Pokémon. It is a Normal type Pokémon. more.

This thing is shockingly powerful, and also is cute.

Milk Drink, a powerful healing move, is highly useful, and can even be used to restore some HP of other Pokémon if needed! Body Slam can paralyze an enemy randomly along with its decent power. Defense Curl can be used to power up Rollout, a move that builds up in power as it tacks on up to five consecutive hits. If Defense Curl is used and Rollout hits for a fifth consecutive hit, the fifth hit will have an incredible base power of 960. Just incredible.

Toxic, Attract, and then just relax with a nice glass of Milk Drink as the enemy suffers consumed by poison and love... And if that fails, she's not just tanky but also fast enought to stomp-flinch most opponents. She might not be the strongest, but she's really fun to use.

It's in the damn name: tank. With upwards of 300 hp at level 65 and the move Milk Drink makes her pretty much unstoppable. Then all you have to do is use Body Slam, which I honestly thinks does more damage the heavier you are.

He's the most OP pokemon with his milk drink he could own and pokemon that are above him. He might not have the best attack but his deffence is all he needs to own it.

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

This thing needs mega. MEGA aipom would be new HUNTER of arceus.I wish ambipom didn't exist and I wish aipom can use hyper beam and giga impact. AIPOM IS adorable smart funny strong fast and kind.

He's one of the best normal type Pokemon you can catch. I don't c how he's this fat back

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

Absolutely the best normal type with its 490 base stats. As fast as other lightning speed Pokemon, it can sweep the hole team with its ridiculously strong attack and defend itself from any kind of attack (except fighting type) with its unwavering defense. Absolutely my choice!

Best normal type ever. Insane speed high attack and mediocre defensive stats makes this beast a monster in the battlefield should be in top 5.

Looks like a beast, mad attack faster than 90% of all pokemon complete with its tails and amazing mane! No more need be said

The second strongest competitive gen 1 pokemon, barring Mewtwo.

18 Diggersby

At first when I was a casual player, I looked at his best(base stat total) and thought that he sucked. When I started doing competitive, I saw HUGE POWER and I was all like I'm sooo sorry for neglecting you all this time diggersby. Also it's an AMAZING choice band user.

Do you do Pokemon Showdown? It's in the first borderline for a reason! Dude could have Huge Power, which is OP, Agility, Earthquake, and anything makes it OP! I also think it learns Swords Dance, so that, too

On Pokemon Showdown, he is the first borderline. Even though I personally prefer Volcarona of the Borderline mons, you can't deny the strength of this Pokemon.

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

A cat like pokemon... I certainly like cats, but a cat-like POKEMON! Awesome! With its lucky amulet and piercing claws I think its awesomely fantastic!

Yeah, the thing about Team Rocket literally ruined this amazing Pokémon. Meowth's past is really moving, but that doesn't mean I like cats, neither do I hate them. They're just treated like lizards. Guys guys just watch "Go West, Young Meowth."

Meowth is not only cute but cool. Hey people don't like cats well you don't like Meowth

Just watch the anime

20 Exploud

Exploud SHOULD be in the top ten. Mine has Overheat and Surf, and although she doesn't get the type boost, the moves still throw off opponents every time. Don't even get me started on Boomburst; what a fantastic special attack. Side note, I bet tons of trainers plug their aux cords into Exploud and jam. Why wouldn't you want this Pokemon?

Why isint Exploud in the top 10. With choice specs stab boomburst and fire blast and other special attacking move its absolutely incridibly good. Vote for exploud and try him out

Exploud is awesome

Already on list

21 Smeargle

Guys really vote for smeargle! Sure, horrible stats, second worst stat total, but really! Every single move! If you want to be cool at the game get a smeargle with the nature that raises speed and then lowers special attack and hold a focus sash. Maximize health and speed with 252 evs each and then sketch the four moves, spore, to put it to sleep. Spore is grass, has 100 accuracy and can affect all pokemon, including flying and ghost. Then use agility so you wont be outrun. You could use it twice if you want, but if the enemy wakes up you're dead. Some stuff only sleeps for 2 turns, some have berries or abilitys to prevent it, but I would use agility and then I'm faster so then lock on. The next turn, they might wake up, because this would be the third turn, but agility makes you faster, so now use sheer cold. Not horn drill. It doesn't get ghost. Not gullitone. Doesn't get them either (I think. Is it normal or water? ) fissure is ground and doesn't get flying typers. Sheer cold? Yes ...more

Put a focus sash on him, jolly and max out speed and attack stat. Use spore to put the opponent to sleep, then use quiver dance a couple times and then baton pass over to a special attacker like volcarona or Mewtwo. They will sweep. You can also throw either extreeme speed or dragon dance on him if you want.

It can do every move

22 Stoutland

This pokemon is one of my favourites. It is incredibly strong, has a solid moveset and its design is awesome. As well as that, it made for a very emotional moment in the sun and moon anime. That moment when Litten hugged Stoutland during his final hours before passing away made my heart sink. Stoutland is a perfect companion and a top five worthy pokemon in my opinion.

This is an awesome, tough, and cool looking Pokemon. I mean just look at that Mustache! Anyway, Stoutland has great all-around stats. This was pretty overpowered early on in Black and White and it's still a beast throughout the game. This needs to be higher.

This is a very underrated Pokémon. Its stats are relatively balanced out. Both of its abilities are very useful as long as you have a strategy Stoutland will always come on top. Suggested move pool Façade, Play rough, Crunch and revenge. I also suggest flame orb as a held item or silk scarf.

This Pokemon is black and white's staraptor!... Theoritically unfeazant is but it ain't good... This Pokemon is as strong and reliable as staraptor!
It deserves to be in the top 5!

23 Bewear

Judging by the anime... it's a god!
Finding team rocket - perfect eyes/nose/hears or maybe she psychic
Taking them - can jump,fly,run on water faster then anything.
She is the only Pokemon that own humans and not the other way around

Also part fighting and releases bone-crushing hugs why on 21st place WHY?!?!

Are we talking about best of coolest well either way this thing wins

24 Lopunny Lopunny, known in Japan as Mimilop, is a Pokémon species in Nintendo and Game Freak's Pokémon franchise.

Lopunny has a lot of variety going for it you never know if its going to be offensive, defensive, support, mega, baton pass user. its really hard to predict I for one use a defensive offensive variant with cosmic power.

Choice scarf lopunny can outspeed quite a bit. With it mega now, it can hit anything really hard. Showdown. Move it up

Lopunny was one of my best partners in my omega ruby playthrough. She kicked butt, and so did her mega.

Lopunny is not my favorite, but being back here, she does not deserve that.

25 Delcatty

Aside from being adorable, Delcatty has great stats and some of the strongest moves a normal type can learn on it's own, as well as being able to learn plenty of TM's. Also, assist is awesome.

While playing Pokemon XY, I came across a beauty. Skitty, my favorite Pokemon, was my first encounter on route 4. It was shiny. It is now a Lv.100 Delcatty with Blizzard, Solarbeam, Play rough, and assist.
It kills everything.

Why isn't this up in top ten? My delcatty is level 100 and knows these moves, hyperbeam gigaimpact shadow ball and psychic!
