Top 10 Best Pokemon of All Time

This list is to rank Pokemon by how famous and liked they are, how gamers think of them, how efficient they are for a Pokemon journey, and how powerful they are.
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 and printed adaptations of the franchise. Shin-ichiro Miki, the actor who voices James in the original Japanese version of the Pokémon anime, voices Charizard in both the Japanese and English-language versions of the anime. An orange, draconic Pokémon, Charizard is the evolved form of Charmeleon and the final evolution of Charmander. It has two other forms, Mega Charizards X and Y, which are its more.

I love Charizard. No, he's not the best Pokémon, but he's still very good. Very week to rock types, but can also take down Grass, Steel, Bug, Ice, Fighting, Dragon (w/ Dragon Claw) and Poison and Electric (w/ Earthquake) types with relative ease. His move pool hasn't always been great but has gotten significantly better over the years. He has access to 2 great mega evolutions. Finally, and probably the main overall reason for his popularity, he was the first Pokémon for many players such as myself. And also he just looks awesome.

Charizard is the most iconic pokemon, screw pikachu, pikachu sucks. Charizard is a boss. Super strong, and he can fly. The only one that can compete with him is blastoise.

I totally agree with anyone who thinks Charizard's the best! Who agrees with me that Charizard is way better than Blastoise? In other words, who thinks Blastoise stinks?!

CHARIZARD forever you can have your dinosaur with a plant on its back or a turtle with water guns while I ride my LITERAL DRAGON! I'm surprised he isn't a dragon type.

2 Mewtwo Mewtwo is a psychic-type Legendary Pokémon from Nintendo and Game Freak's Pokémon media franchise. Designed by Ken Sugimori, it made its first appearance in the games Pokémon Red and Blue. It was created by Dr. Fuji using gene splicing in an attempt to clone Mew. In the Pokémon games, it's infamously known as the most powerful Pokémon among all species. Mewtwo is capable of evolving into two forms - Mega Mewtwo X (using Mewtonite X) and Mega Mewtwo Y (using Mewtonite Y)

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.

Mewtwo. The Pokèmon created by the most brutal gene-splicing known to man. Or Pokèmon, for that matter. My personal second favourite Legendary, right behind Giratina. Pokèmon: The First Movie only made me love the genetically designed psychic cat-human more. Mewtwo also has the best backstory by far. People complain Mewtwo is too violent. How about I murder your best friend in front of you, introduce you to the fact that you, to the people who created you, are nothing but an experiment, a disposable tool, befriend you under false circumstances, then betray you and try to use you as a slave. I'd like to see just how even-tempered you are then.
Mewtwo is love. Mewtwo is life.

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 amazing. He has some of the best stats around, and could wipe out Charizard in one hit with stone edge. Though he is arguably not a Pokemon, but he is in the pokedex (#150). He is also great in the anime as well, being not only the most powerful, bit my favorite character.

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. A mascot of the Pokemon franchise, it's considered to be the most iconic character of all Pokemon species, as well as a major character in Japanese pop culture, due to its companionship with Ash Ketchum in the anime series. Pikachu has been featured in movies such as Pokemon Detective Pikachu as well as music videos - most notably Katy Perry's "Electric" in 2021.

Pikachu is AWESOME! He should be #1! Without him, Pokemon would have never become popular. The first thing EVERYONE thinks other than the Pokeball, is the cute furry little AWESOME fluffy creature! He is the reason I do Pokemon. And I have a Mega Blastiose EX for crying out loud! I am the Poke-Idle at my camp. I have a freakn' tin full of EXs, rare cards, Megas, and, AND two full arts!

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!

If you didn't vote pikachu, one: I will find you Two: it's the reason Pokemon became so well known. Three: it's the most insanely cute, amazing, fantastic, original, and bad-a Pokemon that there is and always will be. Boo rayquaza!

Pikachu is the first Pokemon that Ash obtained and will always be one of his most loyal Pokemon. He has been through the whole series and will never be forgotten in Pokemon history.

4 Arceus Arceus is a legendary Pokémon from the Pokémon series. It first appeared in the 18th Pokémon movie alongside other Legendary Pokémon. In the Pokémon universe, Arceus is widely known as "The Original One", as it's believed to be the creator of the entire pokemon universe. According to mythology, Arceus is said to emerge from an egg that existed before the universe.

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.

Why Isn't Arceus 1st?! >_< It's the creator! Duh! I mean seriously! What the heck?!?! It needs to be 1st! Why?!?! Arceus Is most definitely the top and best of the best!

People say Arceus sucks.
Maybe they are jealous of all people that have one, like me?
I got it through GTS in AS and I am pretty sure it is hacked due to shiny status but still..

5 Mew Mew is a Psychic-type Mythical Pokémon created by Nintendo's and Game Freak's Pokémon media franchise. Designed by Satoshi Tajiri, it was introduced in Pokémon Red and Blue. Mew is capable of learning every move in the games (except signature moves of certain Pokémon), and can shapeshift into other Pokémon species.

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.

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!

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

My favorite tiny legendary. This Pokemon kicks ass! It can learn any move and it's strong!

6 Rayquaza Rayquaza (pronounced "ray-quay-zah") is a Dragon/Flying type Legendary Pokémon species in Nintendo and Game Freak's Pokémon franchise. It serves as the mascot in the game Pokémon Emerald. Rayquaza can mega evolve into Mega Rayquaza provided that it does not have a Z-Crystal and it knows the move "Dragon Ascent". According to the Pokédex, 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.

Rayquaza is awesome. Rayquaza is uber strong and his shiny look is awesome.

Rayquaza is number 1 of the Weather Trio, relating to Air-type attacks.

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 in various merchandise, spinoff titles and animated and printed adaptations of the franchise.

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.

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 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 first introduced in the games Pokemon Red and Blue. Considered as the evolution Pokemon, it has the most evolutions out of all Pokemon species. Eevee can evolve to Vaporeon, Jolteon, Flareon, Espeon, Umbreon, Leafeon, Glaceon, and Sylveon depending on the method used. It serves as the mascot in the game Pokemon: Let's Go, Eevee!

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.

Eevee is the BEST pokemon there's no way to say its, she's adorable! You may be thinking "oh she's not strong" but she can evolve into almost any type you want! Isn't that enough for you? I can't believe she's this far down the list!

Eevee is a really cool Pokemon that can evolve into different Pokemon depending on your strategy. For example if you need a Psychic type to beat your friend, evolve it into Espeon!

How could you not like it? My game has an ARMY of Eevee lead by a lv. 100 shiny! In my opinion, Eevee is the most unpredictable pokemon when it comes to evolving and the list keeps on growing! Cute, lovable, strong and VERY useful.

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 it's typing to the latest move it used. In Sun/Moon, Greninja also has the ability Battle Bond, which transforms him into his stronger form Ash-Greninja after defeating a Pokemon. Greninja's signature move is Water Shuriken. Not only does it hit up to 5 times, it also allows Greninja to attack first.

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.

I don't know what made me absolutely obsessed with Greninja, but it happened, and now it's my favorite.

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

He's my best guy in smash along with king k rool, mii brawler, Iggy, and Ike.

10 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.

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!

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)

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,

11 Lugia Lugia, known in Japan as ルギア (Rugia), is a Legendary Pokémon species in Nintendo and Game Freak's Pokémon franchise. First introduced in Generation II, it's the mascot of the game Pokémon Silver. It serves as the master of the legendary birds trio, and is part of the tower tuo along with Ho-Oh.

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!

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.

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

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

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.

Blastoise is my second favorite pokemon ever! Everyone loves pikachu and charizard but Blastoise is the best!

13 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

14 Primarina

Seal fairy? Mermaid angel? Pokémon beauty? Primarina is just too beautiful to ignore. Though for starters Rowlet is so much cuter than Popplio, it evolves into Decidueye, which isn't very nice looking. That's why I'd choose Popplio as a starter.

I really have no words for Primarina. Sure, Popplio and Brionne are underrated just because their noses apparently make them look like clowns. Their noses will not blunt my love for this line, though, and even though Primarina is slow, it more than makes up for that in the Alola games.

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!

Mischievous shadow ghost that'll also shove three shots of poison down your throat, what more is there to say?

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

16 Squirtle Squirtle, known as Zenigame in Japan, is a Pokémon species in Nintendo and Game Freak's Pokémon franchise. It was originally conceived by Game Freak's character development team and finalized by Chaniah Pantry. It is a squirrel-turtle hybrid. It is a starter Pokémon and evolves into Wartortle which more.

Squirtle is just so cute and reminds me of my pet terrapin!

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

He's the best. Simply put.

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'

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

Everything's good about this fat, amazing Pokemon.

18 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?

Celebi is adorable

Time travel dudes!

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

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

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

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

He is my favorite Pokemon,people sometimes make fun of me for liking this pokemon but I do not care.

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.

Serperior is just pure regal and evolves from my favourite starter, Snivy.

21 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.

22 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.

Use this pokemon. You will not regret it.

23 Charmander Charmander, known as Hitokage in Japan, is a Pokémon species in Nintendo and Game Freak's Pokémon franchise introduced in the games Pokemon Red and Blue. Available in Pokemon Red, Green, Blue, FireRed, and LeafGreen, this Pokémon is a fire type starter Pokémon. It evolves into Charmeleon at level 16, which evolves into Charizard at level 36.

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

I love charizard!

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

I love Umbreon! He's so awesome! True, it is outclassed by Espeon in the offense department, but it is a great supporter! Vote for Umbreon!

Umbreon is only the BEST Eevee evolution! He's powerful, and at the same time adorable... hands down, my favorite!

Umbrella is SO good! For me it gives him higher points since he's an Evolution of Eevee!

He was some of the first good pokemon I know and had!

25 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.

Dialga should be in top 5. He is awful
