Best Pokemon

The Top Ten
1 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 can not only mega evolve but will get another type- from Fire to Fire AND flying and From Fire to Fire AND Dragon! Dragon is a really really good type.

Oh, Charizard... where to start? Charizard is SO weak. I use one single Hyperbeam, and he faints. Sure, he looks cool when you fly him, but I would say he is the definition of overrated in Pokemon. He is the evolved form of a STARTER. You guys, he is not good so stop treating him like he is so good. If you use your Z-power against Charizard, he's doomed. Sure he looks a little cool, like a fire dragon, but believe me, just get to know him and you won't even think about catching one. I would decline getting a Charmander just because I know it will evolve into this overrated orange blob.

I read the comments and now I should say my opinion:

Charizard is not the best and this is why:
1. He is only strong against Erika. For elite four, in pokemon red/blue he was only strong against Lorelei
2. 2 mega evolutions and none of them are good. There is already a fire/dragon that is much better than Charizard. And fire/flying is one of the weakest types in game.
3. It is cool looking, but not as strong as you think. My charizard (who I named OVERRATED) lost against a Persian 😒.

Conclusion: Venusaur is like a plant dino, and blastoise is like a turtle with cannons! But charizard? It's just a western dragon with nothing cool.

I'm sorry to say, but Chaizard isn't that good at all. It's kinda overrated, and in the anime they make it so it's the number 1 pokemon to get, but really it's not.

2 Mewtwo Mewtwo is a fictional creature from Nintendo and Game Freak's Pokémon media franchise. It was created by Dr. Fuji in an attempt to clone Mew.

Mewtwo is stronger than one above all and mewtwo is stronger than every single genetic fictional character. mewtwo can also use the most powerful pokemon moves, but warn can use his legendary signature moves. his signature moves is: "psystrike, need something? , shattered psyche, psycho-power and fulldragon boost"!, mewtwo's weakest attack is fulldragon boost! but the strongest attack is shattered psyche for some reason when this attack is one of the most descructive attacks in RPGs.

Mewtwo is considered a Pokemon, even though he was a scientific experiment clone of Mew. Mew is not nearly as strong as Mewtwo. If they both fought to the death, Mewtwo would have had a hard fight, but come out victorious. He, like Arceus, can copy any technique.

Mew two is more powerful than mew and mew can learn any move and teleport and stuff so mewtwo must be the strongest except maybe kyurem or celebs but mewtwo is probably stronger than celebi even when celebi was encased in the giant grass monster

What in the world of pokemon? How is mewtwo down here? He should be number 1...he has immaculate sp.act and quite high other stats
He is a psychic type that can learn awesome moves such as
Aura sphere, me first, rock slide etc. I mean he is no. 1 material guys

3 Pikachu Pikachu (Japanese: ピカチュウ) are a species of Pokémon, fictional creatures that appear in an assortment of video games, animated television shows and movies, trading card games, and comic books licensed by The Pokémon Company, a Japanese corporation.

Pikachu is the best How is it not number one?! At least it's one of the top tens. I think Pikachu is the most famous pokemon. ( Eevee too )

How the heck did pikachu get sooo low he is and always will be #1 he/she is cute strong and just an amazing character sure Mewtwo and Charizard are "strong" and can mega evolve but pikachu has proven that #1 it does not need some stone to be powerful. #2 even a legendary wont stop him from becoming the very best like no mon ever was #3 it is a friend to the end and wont stop at anything to help the ones it cares for and that is why he will always be #1

Pikachu is the face of pokemon. Without him it wouldn't be NEARLY as popular. Not in Japan, and by extension, not here. There are stronger pokemon. There are cuter pokemon. But when you think of pokemon, the first thing that pops in you head after a picture of the pokeball is this hyper little fella. Still my favorite character in the anime. KATSUP RULES!

Seriously people, why is pikachu over reyquaza mew lugia the three legendary dogs dialga reshiram and every other amazing pokemon. I mean, at least pick raichu... I mean, I love pikachu too, but it's not a very good pokemon. This list isn't for the cutest pokemon, or your favorites, it's for actually good pokemon.

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

Lo, the forsaken the God of Pokemon. Arceus's limitless power is far greater than these pathetic attempts of greatness. Remember- while Humans have created Pokemon, it was only because Arceus wished it; Arceus is the reason we Humans and Pokemon are here in the first place. Each blade of grass in the wind, every stone upturned, and every Pokeball thrown was by Arceus's grand design. I would advise you not to trifle with the God of Pokemon.

Arceus is the god of Pokemon. He did create all Pokemon (except Mewtwo), as well as both Pokemon Trios: Creation Trio (Dialga, Palkia, and Giratina) as well as the Weather Trio (Rayquaza, Kyogre, and Groudon). He can also change his type. He has more than 1,000 forms, and he can copy any technique using Judgement.

He have life plates to protect him from every attack. Only a pokemon which can use a lot of different elemental moves E. G regigigas can defeat him

my god which idiot put arceus in 4 it must be 1 of course the god of pokemon deserves it it is the pokemon which created the universe and has all types how on earth can it be weaker than pikachu mewtwo and charizard charizard must be two and arceus must be 1

5 Mew Mew is one of the fictional species of creatures from Nintendo's and Game Freak's Pokémon media franchise created by Satoshi Tajiri.

According to Pokemon Database, Mew has 100 base friendliness and is super strong. Well, Mew is just great then, it is strong, cute, friendly and would fit perfect as a partner!

Technically, Mew and Arceus are possibly the first two Pokemon in existence. Arceus did create the Pokemon world, however mew has the DNA of all Pokemon, and in the Pokemon Diamond/Pearl/Platinum Pokedex, it said that it is possibly the ancestor of all Pokemon. It also means that it possibly made all Pokemon, alongside with Arceus because of it's ability to transform, and use any move in the games (With the exception of draco meteor and secret sword). In the actual world, however, it may be possible for it to use every move we know of today.

I think Mew has a link with Arceus since Mew is connected to the tree of life in "Mew and the Mystery of Lucario", which means if Mew dies, we all die along with him/her

Actually mew is tougher than mewtwo because mewtwo was fighting with everything he had and mew wasnt even trying mew is tougher then arceus!

6 Rayquaza Rayquaza is a Legendary Pokémon species in Nintendo and Game Freak's Pokémon franchise. It lives in the ozone layer, and frequently stops battles with Kyogre and Groudon, two other Legendaries.

Rayquaza is by far the most superior Pokemon. Its mega evolution has a 780 base stat total which is tied with Mega Mewtwo for the highest stat total in world. On top of that, Rayquaza is the only Pokemon that can mega evolve without holding a mega stone. Because of this, Rayquaza can hold powerful items such as a focus sash or a life orb while in its mega evolve state.

It has the highest base stat, doesn't need a mega stone, delta stream rocks, and dragon ascent kills all! Like it was able to take on Primal Groudon and Primal Kyogre by itself in the past and they are seriously sick themselves. I don't see why it's not #1 or at least #2 behind Mewtwo.

Pikachu is good, SURPRISING! What's not surprising is how much money you can save by switching to Geico.

*My personal favorite until Mega Rayquaza came along and replace favorite spots #1 - #721

7 Lucario Lucario is a Pokémon species in Nintendo and Game Freak's Pokémon franchise. Created by Ken Sugimori, Lucario first appeared as a central character in the film Pokémon: Lucario and the Mystery of Mew, and later appeared in the video games Pokémon Diamond and Pearl and subsequent sequels, also appearing more.

DarkLord is right Lucario shouldn't be way down here. Legendaries are rare and powerful. (noobs) Has anyone ever heard of training? He can crush Arceus, aura doesn't have a type, therefore aura can kill him. He battles Mewtwo a lot. (Wow, unfair a legendary vs non legendary) And guess who wins...

Lucario should be ranked first. He has an awesome movepool. He can take many hits. He is part steel, so he has high defense. He is resistant to many types. He also has great attack power and special attack power.

Lucario kicks butt and a lot of the things you would think fighting and steel types would be bad against lucario isn't and his mega evolution. Lucario is truly a beast

Lucario is way better than the other Pokemons above, plus it's a non- legendary pokemon, not even a pseudo-legendary like metagross or garchomp.
And still is much powerful and cooler.

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

Eevee should be 1! Cute, so many evolutions with advantages, even strong in its normal form! And, seriously? Pikachu? look, I don't hate pikachu, It's cute and all but it's not very strong unless its in 'lets go pikachu.'

Eevee is really really cute, it's kinda fast, and most importantly, you can evolve to many possibilities you know so like... it'll be a great partner.

I like how many varieties and options you get when it comes to Eevee and evolution..., but I still always feel bad for evolving it because it looks so cute and I can never decide if I made the right evolution choice! "Just catch another one." That's what people may think or say, but it's still hard to decide! I know Eevee is mostly popular for its many evolutions, but Eevee itself is still very special. Evolved or not.

who wouldn't want an eevee as a Pokemon partner, because it is so adorable and cute. Plus it has so many different evelutions my favourite eeveelution as it is vaporeon (see below)

9 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.

Ahem let me explain to you guys why greninja should be #1 (though I'm glad its at least in the top ten this list) protean get STAB (same type attack bonus) on every attack it has the ash-greninja form it has a VERY diverse moveset and let me show you my best greninja moveset setup: item: focus sash. ability: battle bond EV's: 252 Sp.Atk/252 Spd/4HP moveset: water shuriken shadow sneak ice beam areal ace explanation: water shuriken is awesome and gets more power from the ash-greninja form shadow sneak is a good dark type move that destroys ghost and psychic types ice beam takes care of those grass types and is a good move overall and areal ace is a good high powered move that always hits and the reason I have focus sash is because greninja is VERY frail and I hope now you realise that charizard is just a overrated lizard (suck that charizard and red fanboys+genwunners

Great speed and one of the best abilities in the game in protean turns this Pokemon into a wrecking ball, able to wreak havoc on any unprepared team.

He's super strong and has a lot of agility and can be one of the most loyal pokemon.

I think greninja should be higher cause his attack and speed is op

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

Lugia stays underwater most of the time because he is so powerful. It is said that an offensive flap of his wings can cause a hurricane that may last for 40 days. Not to mention he is one of the most beautiful Pokemon around.

He is powerful,but you don't know one thing, it isn't Water/Flying type it's actually a Psychic/Flying type. Aren't you surprised.Well I don't think so because, the one who has caught lugia in frlg (fire red/leaf green)know this and for those of you who don't know to catch lugia and ho-oh in frlg you can catch it by cheat code. Which I don't know but can get it by typing "pokemon frlg navel rock cheats" in google and good luck catching them.

Anybody that believed in Christianity definitely would love the Tower Duo, which is Lugia and Ho-Oh. Lugia creating 40 day storms represents the 40 day storm that happened during Noah’s time, and Ho-Oh represents the rainbow after. Amazing pokemon!

This thing walls attacks like no other, while still managing to have great speed and decent offenses.

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

Dragonite is a great Pokemon. It has the 2nd highest base stat total of all non-legendary Pokemon, second to Slaking. But, considering that Slaking's terrible ability, Truant, doesn't allow him to attack twice in a row, Dragonite can safely be considered the better Pokemon. Dragonite has an excellent movepool, including attacks such as Dragon Dance, Outrage, Thunder, Earthquake, Surf, Fire Blast, Aerial Ace, Focus Blast and Rock Slide just via TM and levelling. Via tutoring and egg moves, it can learn Ominous Wind, Draco Meteor, Aqua Tail, Heat Wave, Iron Head, Superpower and Dragon Rush. Pretty amazing.

Dragonite is the best. Apart from the 12 legendary pokemon ahead of him, his base stats are higher than all (but one: Slaking. Really? Slaking? ) other pokemon (beating out several other legendaries as well)

The absolute best non legendary. With the right move set, he can take down any Pokemon except ice and certain dragons! A must have for a powerful team!

Question. Why is dragonite so far down. it can beat a lot of legendaries. Still, charizard is better, but this Pokemon should be second. Eevee and seperior shouldn't even be up there. Dragonite is the best Pokemon, trust me,

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

I love Blastoise. I used him in my Pokemon Yellow team and he helped me flog my rivial at the end. Shame him and Venusaur live in Charizards shadow

Great pokemon. May not have the best designed mega, and is definitely not in the top 20 most powerful pokemon. But in my opinion he is the best, At least I don't excessively hype Charizard like a nostalgia blinded fanboy

I think that Blastoise should be #6 because he is strong, powerful, slick, and has really good at defense. Overall he is a great pokemon.

My favorite starter was always Squirtle, but I like Blastoise better. Strong, Mega, and can destroy steel with ease. Look it up.

13 Primarina

It looks like a mermaid and I love mermaids

My favorite starter! It isn’t easy to get a fairy type Pokemon

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

I love Darkrai. He's the only Pokemon who can give bad dreams, he has a great movepool like Double Team, Nasty Plot, Dream Eater, Dark Pulse, Quick Attack, and Nightmare. But the main reason I love Darkrai is in the anime. In the 10th movie The Rise of Darkrai, Darkrai was considered evil by everyone in Alamos Town. Earlier in time, Darkrai suffered from injuries and wa sprobably caused by Pokemon who thought he was a threat. So Alice's grandmother saw what happened and helped the poor thing. When Dialga and Palkia started brawling near Alamos Town, the entire elements of space and time were starting to evaporate. So Darkrai decided to save Alamos Town and his only friend. And he guarded the town with his life by trying to stop Dialga and Palkia from ruining everything. Dialga and Palkia were fighting each toher at the beginning, but later in the fight they start fighting together. Darkrai still fought on. But he was destroyed when Roar of Time and Spacial Rend both hit him. He ...more

Darkrai... Oh yes, get yourself a Lum Berry when your against this dude! With a Nasty Plot/Dark Void/Dark Pulse combo, he will actually rip through the toughest of team's. Take Lance, for example.

Not only what I said earlier, Darkrai is great at showing the emotiona; aspects of Pokemon and should be higher. This guy's name rocks, he's one of the only Legendary Dark-type, and he should be higher. Curse Snivy.

Darkrai is the only Pokemon that can put Pokemon to sleep and inflicts damage and you should see him in the Pokemon movies. So awesome!. I think he should be first

15 Gengar Gengar, known in Japan by the same name, is a Pokémon species in Nintendo and Game Freak's Pokémon franchise.

I gotta admit I want it to be best pokemon ever for everyone but I get why it won't.But if I would chose the top ten it would be my favorite.

Gengar is so underrated, he is awesome! He shoots shadow balls, he has an evil grin and he is just like a purple porcupine!

His evil grin is a warning not to mess with him, lest you eat one of his powerful shadow balls.

Obvious choice! Should be higher! Anyway, wheres Alakazam? Gengar rocks!

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

Squirtle is easily the best pokemon, if you don't think so your irrelevant

It's just squirtle what else is there to say

Why does everyone hate water types

Squirtle is very cute and cool

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

Charizard? Seriously? You're kidding me! He's one of the weakest starters out there, and Charizard gets a free pass for #1 just because of nostalgia? What about Snorlax? I don't see genwunners worshipping this guy. He deserves it- he can actually be used in battle and take some hits. High HP, Attack, and Sp. Defense. He doesn't need Sp. Attack, HP makes up for Defense, and low Speed- what were you expecting? Snorlax has charm in my opinion because of how funny he is and his concept of living a life only eating a lot and sleeping for a long time. Snorlax has only 1 weakness, and he has strength to spare. So could somebody tell me what Charizard is so good for? I've never played Red and Blue, and I already think Snorlax is amazing. Now if you'll excuse me, I have to deal with a mob of immature genwunners outside my front door so... See ya'

He's so OP he's got incredible defense immunsly high attack can learn solar beam flamethrower and shockwave yet learning rest and sleep talk I used snorlax to beat Mewtwo in Fire Red of course I didn't defeat Mewtwo but I caught Mewtwo with an Ultra ball while he was on yellow and paralyzed!

So relax is epic, he can beat Pokemon up to 15 levels greater to him because of his high hp, attack, and defense, opponent still too strong? Just use yawn, they are asleep and you get free hits for 2-6 turns, I used to underestimate normal type Pokemon, but snorelax makes normal types seen strong.

The only thing I love about snorlax is that he's so big and fat and cuddly and super strong in the games. I think it's the strongest non legendary mythical normal pokemon out there

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

It is my favorite pokemon of all time! It was my first true pokemon and my first shiny starter! I love this pokemon

This is one of the best starter evolutions in existence. How is this #39 instead of in the top 10?

It can beat blaziken with earthquake. It gets the best coverage moves.#RAMI.

In pokemon ruby my level 36 sceptile one shots a level 32 combusken

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

It's an onion fairy- what's not to love?

This onion fairy is the best

Time travel dudes!

its weak but rare. it has bad moves and stats

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

My favorite starter is snivy. I'm actually surprised that it is in the top 20 though. I thought it was the least popular of the unova starters and possibly one of the least popular starters in general.

How is this pokemon so far down the list? Ihad Snivy as a starter and raised it to a level 71 Serperior and took it to the Pokemon championships, it totally kicks ass!

At least it's in top 19 and there is like 720 Pokemon. O by the way today's 1/27/16 just in case it changes.

Very strong and the stats are fine and ita defense against attacks a very good

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

Gallade and lucario see the other pokemon like the most loyal and respectable. Is a mutual admiration.

Oh, please. Gallade can predict the moves of a rival, and can do win the battles easier.

I really love this pokemon. The design is graceful and genial at the same time.

This is my favourite pokemon card of all time. I love it

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

Palkia controls space as number 2 of the Creation Trio. He can create rifts in time and basically teleport himself or other Pokemon to his desired location.

He is a tremendous legendary who has water as a type and to me that is just amazing.

List does not complete without him.

How is Palkia worse than Squirtle

23 Oshawott Oshawott, known in Japan as Mijumaru, is a Pokémon species in Nintendo and Game Freak's Pokémon franchise.

This is real cool because:
He was the best part of pokemon black and white anime
He has a cool move which is razor shell
He has a cool name
He has a great scalchop
He is adorable
And millions more reasons

Adorable little thing. He evolves into the coolest Black and White starter

The very best pokemon ever!

Oshawott is just so cute

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

As number 1 of the Creation Trio, Dialga controls time. He can reverse time, or even make someone say something again! As number 1 of the Sinnoh Trio, Dialga controls time. He can reverse time, or even make someone say something again!

I like dialga because he was like the first legendary I captured in diamond, and he has roar of time.

This guy should be higher up in the list.

One of the Best Defensive Pokemon.

25 Charmander Charmander, known in Japan as Hitokage, is a Pokémon species in Nintendo and Game Freak's Pokémon franchise.

He's such a cutie and evolves into a beast!

because he's really good
