Best Water Pokemon

The Top Ten
1 Gyarados Gyarados is a Pokémon species in Nintendo and Game Freak's Pokémon franchise. It evolves from one of the weakest Pokemon, Magikarp. But Gyarados has a high attack power (as of gen VII, mega Gyarados is ranking #19 for highest attack stat & would rank #10 if legendary Pokemon aren't included), and a good special defense. It's typing consist of water & flying, or from its mega evolution form, it has the typing water & dark.

Let's examine some Water Pokemon (not including legendaries):
Blastoise: Has better stats than Venusaur, but only has one type even at it's Mega-Evolution.
Swampert: A great Pokemon, only one weakness, which is Grass, and can be destroyed with Ice Beam, but weaknesses aside, there's still Pokemon that can easily OHKO Swampert.
Gyarados: Better stats than both Mega Swampert and Blastoise, becomes a Dark-type Mega-Evolution, and don't get me started on Flail. Guess what it evolves from? The most common fish Pokemon. It looks more like a Dragon than Charizard and Aerodactyl (also good Pokemon, Charizard's overrated though), and Lance has one.

Gyarodos is awesome. We all say that to our favorite water types, don't we? But what we need is proof. Uh huh, listen to this, supreme court!

-Intimidate - Lowers down attack stat, and in some cases attack itself
-Moxie - Each time you beat someone up with Gyarados, free extra attack power
-Hidden ability - Hidden ability, well, its hidden, so I really can't say much, but usually when you say hidden ability, it usually pretty cool.
-Frighten - Reduces speed
-Tenacity - Contact causes Flinch

Attack? Do I need to say that Gyarados kicks butt when you already know that? It is renowned to be a mass havoc creator.
Is a flying type, so major advantage. Capable of using Fire Fang, Ice Fang and Thunder Fang.
Learns Thrash at beginning, and Bite too. Dragon Rage (Level 23) gives massive leverage against opponents, in which some opponents will not know, since Gyarados is not a Dragon type, so, you can say 'surprise! '
Bite and Crunch get ...more

So he's a sea serpent and it looks cool. Normally I don't vote for cool Pokemon, but no one can deny that gyarados is the best water Pokemon. FACT: it has the most in-battle victories of all water type Pokemon. Still that is no guarantee to victory. BUT it's a real powerhouse, it can't learn many moves by leveling up, but you can learn him a heckalotta moves by TM's. it has powerful attack as well as special defense. it has 2 weaknesses (1 x4 weakness), 1 immunity and 5 resistances. it can learn many different types of moves by TM's. Gyarados is going to be my first pick in water type Pokemon in every online Pokemon game.

I remember I still have a level 30 shiny Gyarados on my Pokemon Pearl game that a cousin traded to me at the beginning of the game. She was, and still is, the strongest Pokemon I own on that game. First of all, nearly all of Gyarados's weaknesses are cancelled out by typing except for 1, but I could be wrong. And that type is Electric. Even then, Gyarados can learn Earthquake and Dragon Dance, which would sweep any Electric type before they could get the chance to attack. Gyarados is a beast in battle, and with it's already high Attack stats, spending a bit of money on Protiens and Carboses would definitely make a Gyarados a very scary monster to deal with, indeed. I find it almost ironic how one of the flat out worst (Not THE worst. THE worst is Sunkern. It is the worst stated Pokemon ever. Look it up.) can evolve into such a savage on the battlefield. I'm pretty sure I replaced my starter with the Gyarados, and the starter was a higher level than her. I love Gyarados. I've always ...more

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

War. War never changes.
In the year 1945, my great-great grandfather, serving in the army, wondered when he'd get to go home to his wife and the son he'd never seen. He got his wish when the US ended World War II by dropping atomic bombs on Hiroshima and Nagasaki.

The World awaited Armageddon; instead, something miraculous happened. We began to use atomic energy not as a weapon, but as a nearly limitless source of power.

People enjoyed luxuries once thought the realm of science fiction. Domestic robots, fusion-powered cars, portable computers. But then, in the 21st century, people awoke from the American dream.

Years of consumption lead to shortages of every major resource. The entire world unraveled. Peace became a distant memory. It is now the year 2077. We stand on the brink of total war, and I am afraid. For myself, for my wife, for my infant son - because if my time in the army taught me one thing: it's that war, war never changes.

Blastoise is the original water tank in Pokemon. He has excellent stats, a great move set and has the potential to crush anything. Blastoise is so awesome that it remains to this day one of the most respected and beloved Pokemon of all time, and an absolute boss. Just to show what kind of a powerhouse Blastoise is, let's look at people who actually have one. Trainer Red, the greatest Pokemon trainer of all time, and Gary Oak. People with Blastoise's don't mess around, and you have to bring the strongest members of your team to have a shot at taking him down.

When something is perfect... Its perfect. You have a giant Tortoise with mechanical water pressurized cannons located within its shell to cause serious damage while behind a castle wall defense. Train his both his defenses give him left overs. Get him with Iron Defense, Aqua Ring, Toxic and Rapid Spin (or Surf) and just see how far you get with him Pvp... The only reason they didn't make Blastoise a Steel Type in Gen 2 Was cause he'd just be too Overpowered and we all know it.

I personally think that Blastoise is one of the best pals I have ever had. First of all, Many people choose Charizard, but he is fire type and Blastoise is extremely effective against fire. (Not many people choose grass starters, so he is basically a god.) Continuing, Blastoise is super cool and literally a living tank. I made a "mistake" and put my Blastoise's EV as attack, but it turns out, Blastoise just turned into a huge heavy tank and if you attack it, it loses 1 HP, but then when it's their turn, they just hydropump the crap out of its opponent. It may just be a water type, but I love Blastoise.

3 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.

This is a ninja frog with such amazing looks and speed. Even the best water pokemons cannot match with its speed. It has weakneses yes but those pokemon types that are strong against this pokemon have to have a strike at it. They can't even have a strike at it because of its great speed. The battle between Ash and Sawyer, how Sawyers Sceptile tried attacking Greninja with frenzy plant and how Greninja dodged all that and cut through it was awesome. Plus Greninja won against Sceptile. It can learn a move set like grass knot, aerial ace, dig, toxic, rock slide which can make up for its weaknesses. It's a dark type pokemon as well which makes it from resisting psychic moves.

Greninja is way better than Blastoise. Mat block is this man's signiture move. It provides protection for your whole team (mostly in triple and double battles) which allows you to lay traps such as toxic spikes and stealth rock.
This also has the best ability in the game. Protean. Instant STAB, which means it gets an extra 50% power for attacking. It also confuses the opponent.
Last but not least is its speed. It is the fastest water type there is (I think...). This allows it to hit fast and hard.
Overall, if you add everything up, you will understand why it is the best. Blastoise may be the best Pokemon anime wise, but Greninja is the best competitively. It also has cool looks.

If you ask me my favourite starter from Gen VI, you know what I'm saying. Simply the color fits not only what it is supposed to resemble (and yes, sorry to break your Bubblebeam but ninjas actually wore deep navy blue) but also fits it's type. And simply just imagine getting sweeped by a Frog Ninja. I mean seriously... But they should buff up it's sig move, seriously, for a sig move that damage is baaad. Well constrict never got the love. But imagine this: Protean + Spikes = Problem for your Jolteons if it has a Ground-type move that deals damage.

Why isn't greninja higher on the list? He is one of the fastest of most agile starter pokemon and though his main main move water shrunken does low damage he himself is very strong. Who cares it be has low defense all he does is out speed and kill them and if they do survive hope you don't faint take them out on tenth second turn. He also has high evasion so wish the enemy good look on hitting greninja after a couple of double-team 's.

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

Empoleon is a PERFECT Pokemon. He or she can learn very good moves that get rid of its weaknesses (even though you really do not need to do that, plus he or she doesn't even have that many), a lot of very good STAB (same type) moves (like Flash Cannon, Hydro Pump and Scald) and can work with pretty much any strategy. Its typing is also very good, its design is original and fancy/cute (depending on which form) and the abilities are pretty good. Not to mention that it doesn't take forever to evolve him, despite him being a complete sweeper in any way. Plus, you can easily take care of the weaknesses. Just throw in Ice Beam!

Overall, Empoleon is literal perfection.

I like penguins but this guy took it too far. Penguin with steel sword-like flippers. You gotta admit if this guy was real, he would take over the world. Fire types can't touch this dude and he takes over most other types really easily I used to not really like him but once I used him he turned into mecha-penguin. I'm surprised he didn't take out blastoise in this competition of popularity. You people are ca ra a z

It was my first starter in platinum and it recked the elite 4 in platinum with a few revives, moo-moo milks, and level 5s to tank while I need to heal. You just need Ice beam, a good water type move, and drill peck to wreck the pokemon league (2/4 of the elite 4 is weak to water, Aaron can be defeated using drill peck, Lucian by just turning up the power, and Cynthia using ice beams on garchomp)

Powerful both offensively and defensively, Empoleon packs a nice punch. With a base 111 Special Attack stat and 84/88/101 defenses, this Water/Steel pokemon is a monster. Factor in the 11 resistances, and its plain to see Empoleon as the best Water type starter. I definitely recommend Empoleon on any team.

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

Swampert is the best starter pokemon, period. Water+ground with its base stats makes it strong in both attack and defense. It's completely resistant to electric types, which is crazy good for a water type (akin to Zapdos' resistance to ground). Its only weakness is against grass types, which are quite rare, are often paired with poison typing, and the type itself doesn't have many good moves anyways. Grass types are also weak to ice attacks, and Swampert can learn them. Give your Swampert surf, earthquake, and ice beam/punch with just about any fourth move and it can easily handle any pokemon that isn't a water type or something like Mew or Celebi. Even including legendaries, Swampert is the very best.

Blastoise is cool and the original water starter Pokemon, but Swampert is just a load better! He has a higher base stat than Blastoise, he's cute and quirky, he can totally murder his only vulnerability (which is grass) by learning ice type moves like Ice Beam, and he can learn dig which I believe many Trainers will find useful! Water isn't my favourite type, but damn does it have good Pokemon. And when it comes to Water? It's all about Swampert - and Emploeon since that guy is sick as hell AND one of a kind (being the only water/steel dual type Pokemon) but I at the end of the day Swampert is the best, so I'm voting for him. Come on people, this awesome fish/lizard deserves your votes too! Let's at least get him at the number 2 spot!

Swampert: my first Pokemon game was Pokemon Emerald so I was wondering which starter to choose. My brother said to choose Torchic, but I ditched that idea and chose Mudkip, the coolest looking out of all of them (sorry bro). Swampert is the powerhouse of all starters. Solid stats and fair defense makes it a nightmare to stand up against in a battle. My first Swampert new Earthquake, Surf, Toxic and Rest. Rest saved my butt in the Elite Four because I stocked up on a ton of Chesto Berries. When I battled with my friends, Toxic would always be the deciding factor. Pokemon that are immune to Toxic? I think EQ and Surf can take care of that. My first starter, and by far, my first tank in Pokemon

I love Swampert. Although most would pick Torchic for it's evolution, Blaziken. Who, I'll admit, is pretty decent. And then others would pick Treecko for Sceptile's speed. I picked Mudkip. Because Swampert is just flat out awesome. Although it isn't the fastest thing in the world, it's speed is alright. It definitely makes up for that with it's Defenses being a little better than average. It's a Ground and Water type. So, although Grass type moves will do quadruple damage, Electric type moves are cancelled out because Swampert is a Ground type. That leaves you at a big advantage because Electric type moves are a huge threat to Water types. His Water typing also cancels out moves that would be super effective on Ground types and makes them do normal amounts, or little damage done. Rather than super effective damage. For example, Ice type moves, which would have been super effective on Swampert if Water typing wasn't there to take away the sting and make it do normal damage. That leaves ...more

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

Vaporeon is really bulky, can cover his/her two weaknesses with dig and Ice beam. Not that It needs to, because it is insanely bulky. My brother has a level 100 Torterra, who used Frenzy Plant on my level 100 Vaporeon. Guess who survived? Vaporeon. Guess who took out Torterra with an Ice beam immediately after this? Vaporeon.
Vaporeon is awesome. On a side note, look at how regal it looks? It looks like its about to give you a royal whooping with its base 110 Special Attack. Good luck beating this guy/girl.

I admit, I chose Bulbasaur over Squirtle back in the days when I played the first three version of Fire, Water and Grass. But when I stumble an Eevee which can evolve into one of the three tier of evolutions.

I decided to change it into Vaporeon to make up for not choosing Blastoise and I'm glad to do so. Cause Mega-Blastoise, too much. New kick ass appearance COOL. Over-all base stat NOT COOL. I mean if everyone is gonna choose either Blastoise or Garyados for the Mega evolutions in a long run, other water Pokemon isn't so watery anymore and that's just sad.

But what am I talking about?! This is Vaporeon, a water cat like that jets with bubbles! I LIKE IT! :) With Hp stat start on 130 similar to Lapras which a true contender to Vaporeon itself. I can respect both of them cause of the reasonable movepool and it's fantastic yet cute cuddly designs. And let's not forget the anime.

The only reason I chose Vaporeon over Lapras is that Lapras unfortunately have 4 type ...more

Vaporeon is that one Pokemon I found out about when I was little. I had no idea what it was called back then, but I loved it so much. To this day, it is still my favorite Pokemon (Unfortunately I found out about the REST of Vaporeon's family and how overrated they were (including Vaporeon) a long time ago too so it makes me ashamed. ) Also, it can control water at will. This thing could create a tsunami that could wipe out humanity if it wanted to. Don't mess with it.

Hey look, It's the ancestor of all the eevees above the first generation. I really feel bad for's so underrated like jolteon flareon glaceon and leafeon..I wish it has more damn attention, unlike umbreon sylveon and espeon...if you raise its stats...Well...It's An actual beast..and it could possibly take down a very strong legendary...well, everyone treats vaporeon jolteon flareon glaceon and leafeon like crap and..I hope this tells you about how important the other eeveelutions are other than just espeon umbreon and sylveon all the time.

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

With Feraligatr able to learn a pretty good range of status boosting, secondary effect, and generally fat damage moves, it's been my all-time personal favourite for over a decade. Along with its ability to quickly break the defensive backbones of balanced teams, take some hits, and its reliability as a wallbreaker and potential hard carry (despite its primarily physical stats and dependence on teammates to take hits from any of its more dangerous threats), I've been able to soundly depend on it as my number 1 even though it isn't in the top 3 of this list.

This Pokemon is a big wall with amazing speed. Pokemon like Blastoise are walls but pretty slow :P Water types are my favourites because it can learn the only hms I like waterfall surf strength. Feraligatr can beat ice type with moves like blizzard, ice beam, avalanche, ice punch and ice shard. The real weakness for feraligatr is electric but he can ko electric types if you teach it earthquake. I remember in my Pokemon crystal training in mount silver to get it level 100 I beat the elite four with feraligatr without healing and lance got one shotted by ice beams laugh out loud :P plus my first Pokemon was feraligatr so yaay

Totodile was my first Jhoto pokemon and though I'm a fire fan, I was converted to water after my baby (grown Feraligatr at level 70) was able to take on the entire Elite 4 + the Champion ALL BY HIMSELF. This was in the first Silver version, and after beating them once with a team I tested his strength...and he surprised me. Took them on like it was nothing! I only had to heal him once, and that was because I was paranoid.
He beat them several more times after that.
His moves were Bite, Slash, Surf and Ice Punch.
Today he is still my favorite pokemon, though I have too many candidates for a perfect team now lol

Feraligatr is beast. It has awesome Attack and Defense, and good Special Attack. It can learn Dark, Dragon and Ice type moves, which is awesome. It should be in the Top 10, not cloyster. It's probably up herer cause everyone (except a few people) picked Cyndaquil, not giving Totodile a chance. With Feraligatr, and Crocanaw and Totodile for that matter, I caould easily take out my rival's Chikorita, Bayleaf, and Meganuim. I defeated practically the whole Elite 4 with my Feraligatr, and beat Lt. Surge and Erika with ease.

8 Lapras

Lapras is a great pokemon:

Let's start with the ability.
- Water Absorb gives Lapras an immunity to Water.
- Hydration with kill status problem with a Rain Dance.
- Shell Armor means NO critical hits, what-so-ever.

Now, the attacks.

- Sing is a starter move, which gives you an upper hand on attacks.
- It learns TONS of Special moves, and Stab adds to this.
- Perish Song kills both pokemon, Lapras and the foe. Though, if you use it wisely, the ove is really beneficial.
- Sheer Cold is a One Hit KO move, which is good.

- Breeding Lapras with a Stunfish will teach the baby Lapras Fissure. Train it up high and it learns Sheer Cold. There's two One Hit KO moves.
- Lapras learns some Dragon moves as well.
- Lapras can also learn a Psychic move, along with Sleep Talk and/or Curse (Ghost Type).

- Lapras has the ability to learn Thunder and Thunderbolt. When battling a water leader and use a Lapras with Water ...more

Okay, I want to say that I would rather see Lapras and Vaporeon higher than Gyarados and Feraligator. The reason for this is because Feraligator and Gyarados have a higher base attack stat than any other water Pokemon. But, why would you want a water type Pokemon with a higher attack stat? How many water type moves do you know that base damage off of attack? 1, Aqua Tail. And Aqua Tail isn't even that powerful when crunched with Surf. And also as a fact, a lot of unexperienced people with Gyarados will have a moveset with high damaging special attack based move, which is not as strong as a Pokemon with a higher special attack base using the same move. So for example, a Gyarados using Hydro Pump is not nearly as strong as a Lapras with Surf. So when thinking about getting a water type Pokemon, and you want Gyarados because "cool he can learn dragon type moves", build attack based moves like Ice Fang and Aqua Tail.

Such a varied movepool. I love this guy as a special sweeper. Surf, Ice Beam, Psychic, and Thunderbolt is my favorite moveset, but this guy could also learn Sheer Cold, Fissure, Horn Drill, a Sing and Dream Eater combo (I hate Sing though because it doesn't hit often enough), Body Slam, Dragon Pulse, Drill Run, Freeze Dry (which CRUSHES water types), a Rest and Sleep Talk combination, Heal Bell, Iron Tail, Signal Beam, and Zen Headbutt. Man, this guy is awesome.

Lapras is awesome! I'm a little late to the party, my first game was X. I was gifted lapras in game and oh my god it was brilliant! I taught it thunderbolt and it basically blitzed all water types. It also knew surf hydro pump and perish song. I took out so many Pokemon with it! Best water type ever have no clue why it's not number one.

Sorry though my favourite Pokemon of all time has to be aurorus.

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

Milotic would be #1 if people were actually capable of catching it. It is extremely rare and it's first evolution sucks. However, when you evolve it (which is a difficult task whichever game you play) it is one of the most powerful Pokemon I have ever owned. I beat the whole elite four with Milotic in my Emerald game. She can learn ice beam which eliminates it's grass weakness and her special ability ups her defense in suffering (aka when they hit you with thunderbolt it doesn't even kill it.) one of the finest additions Pokemon ever made to the game in my opinion and should be #1 I hate blastoise.

Milotic is both the most powerful and beautiful water pokemon ever! The combination between water, ice and dragon moves makes it strong against almost all others pokemon! The fact that it takes a lot of effort to get one makes them even more valuable and amazing! No stupid ordinairy starter pokemon can possibly be the best water pokemon..!

My milotic rocks! Aside from strong defense, it also has high level of beauty: good for Pokemon contest nerds like me.
My Milotic's Contest Moves are:
Surf-Combo with Dive
Dive-Combo with Surf
Ice Beam-For distracting other Pokemon
Blizzard-For high points
And with those moves I sweep normal to master rank IN EMERALD

From the ugly duckling feebas, Milotic is considered as the most beautiful Pokemon of all Pokemon. Not only she is beautiful, she is strong as well. Except the legendaries, Milotic can beat down blastoise and swampert. Her marvel scale is wonderful. And she can also learn dragon type moves.

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

This Pokemon is a true force of nature. Even though I had Groudon and Rayquaza, I still trembled when my cousin brought this monster onto the field during our link battles. Groudon would be finished off with Water Spout or Hydro Pump, and Rayquaza would suffer death by Ice Beam! The rest of my arsenal was no match for this beast. STAB plus rain made its water attacks extremely powerful, and high special defense meant that even super effective grass and electric attacks barely had any effect. Truly the greatest of all water Pokemon.

Vaporeon is my favorite but I'm gonna comment for Kyogre.This water Pokemon is easily the strongest water type there is. I hate how water Pokemon are treated by the animators. They always make them seem to be below the fire types. I saw the mega evolution special and they treated Kyogre very badly when he went up against Mega Metagross and Primal Groudon. The TRUTH of the matter is, Primal Kyogre wrecks mega metagross, and it DEPENDS on which Pokemon is tossed out last on the whole Groudon vs Kyogre debate.If Groudon is tossed out last, Groudon wins. If Kyogre is tossed out last, Kyogre wins. There's really nothing to argue hear.

Kyogre has one of the highest Sp.att's out there, in addition with Kyogre able to learn the following moves:

1. Earthquake (ground type move)
2. surf/hydro pump (water type move)
3. thunder (which has 100% accuracy due to Kyogre's ability, Drizzle) (electric type move)
4 and ice beam (ice type move)

because Kyogre to learn such a wide range of moves (all of which are a different type), Kyogre is able to bring down almost any type of Pokemon with a 'super effective move' these types of Pokemon include:

1. Fire types (due to Surf and Earthquake)
2. ground types (due to surf ice beam)
3. rock types (due to Surf and Earthquake)
4. Electric Types (due to Earthquake)
5. Steel types (due to Earth quake)
6. water types (due to Thunder)
7. flying types (due to Thunder and ice beam)
8. Ground types (due to Ice beam)
9. Dragon types (due to ice beam)
10. bug types (due to ice beam)
11. poison types (due to Earthquake)
12. grass types ...more

Hands down THE most powerful water Pokemon if not the most powerful Pokemon ever. Seriously folks, Kyogre has been hailed as the king of ubers ever since he made his appearance and for good reason. His drizzle ability summons rain and boosts his already monstrous water attacks to ridiculous degree, to the point that full health Water Spout attack from Kyogre in the rain is THE most powerful attack in the game.

It isn't even up for an argument, Kyogre is stronger than every other water Pokemon.

The Newcomers

? Ogerpon (Wellspring Mask)
? Paldean Tauros (Aqua Breed)
The Contenders
11 Kingdra Kingdra, known in Japan as Kingdra, is a Pokémon species in Nintendo and Game Freak's Pokémon franchise.

Excellent dual STABs in Waterfall and Outrage coupled with Dragon Dance make Kingdra a top threat capable of sweeping unprepared teams. Kingdra's excellent defensive typing, along with its deceptively bulky stats, allow it to take strong special hits and Dragon Dance with a comfortable amount of HP remaining. Suicune and Starmie, two excellent checks to other Dragon-types, usually hope to bait Outrage, only to find themselves unable to stop Kingdra from setting up two or three Dragon Dances, then Rest and restore itself to full health thanks to Chesto Berry. Chesto Berry will not cure anything but sleep, so Pokemon relying on Will-O-Wisp or Toxic might think that they have beaten or crippled Kingdra, only to find they have given it an opportunity to gain more boosts before healing off status with Rest. With its boosted Waterfall, Kingdra is able to beat many Pokemon without locking itself into Outrage, and becomes very difficult to stop if the opponent no longer has a defensive wall ...more

Kingdra is cool mainly because he is water and dragon type. The fact that he is water type makes him much less weak against ice types - who are normally best against dragon types. This makes his only weakness dragon. However, because he is dragon type, he can fight off his own weakness, and further more, he is a water type which allows him to learn ice type moves - which are also good against dragon types.

1. Tied with gyarados and milotic with the best stats amoungst non-legendary water pokemon.
2. It's stats are much more spread out than milotic or gyarados
3. Being a water/dragon type, it only has 1 weakness, Dragon type (which is only a single weakness)
4. Milotic has 2 weakness and Gyarados has a double weakness against electricity
4. It's a sea-dragon and sea-dragons are cool.

Excellent typing plus capable of taking hard hits! Kingdra uses Dragon Dance, then Outrage or Waterfall just finishes off your opponents! Very nice amount of resistances, one of the most important are Grass, Electric and Ice, which most Water or Dragon have difficulty against.

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

I used Lv. 100 Samurott to single handedly defeat the Pokemon league twice, and to destroy the Black Tower. Why is he way down here?
Plus, he is a starter Pokemon so you can obtain him without having to go through the trouble of catching him.
Also his Torrent ability powers up water type moves when it is low hp, and it can be taught Hydro Cannon, hydro pump and waterfall.
Hydro Cannon and Pump are very powerful, and Waterfall often makes the target flinch.

I am such a lover on offensive special attackers! I mean like, Samurott and Charizard are my favorites! Yeah, I know, Samurott can crush Charizard. This was ACTUALLY the FIRST water starter I ever got. I plan on getting Delphox or Greninja in X and Y. Samurott's got really high sp. Attack, (man am I crazy with sp. Attackers) and that made me get an A+ on defeating the elite four. LETS GO SAMUROTT

Samurott is an awesome water Pokemon becuase he has cool armor, can take out swords from his leg guard and is a samurai Pokemon.
Samurott is like a symbol of Japan considering he's water element and his ressemblance to a samurai.
I love Samurott and I love Dewott too.
I'm really hoping that Ash's Oshawott would evolve into Dewott and finally Samurott as he shapens up.

Not the best water starter, but the obvious choice for anyone playing Black and White. Carracosta and Seismitoad are both double weak to grass, and even with Carracosta's Solid Rock ability you may not survive an Energy Ball. The other water types in Unova are absolute garbage. So, Oshawott is the obvious pick.

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

I give my vote to Palkia. I assume that Palkia should be Psychic/Dragon. You guys might know me. I did say my second sentence in the best steel type votes. I gave my vote to Dialga. You guys can find me on that page. I could not write much about Palkia then because it was about Steel types. I love Palkia by the way!

The beast of the sea! Defeated of Kyogre! Beats Blastoise! Kicks Gyarados! Smashes Swampert! Kills Empoleon! Slashes Vaporeon! Shoot Wailord to death! It was the king of the sea! Kyogre was surrendering, and the king of the sea is released! Arceus, beware you are not king of the sea. Arceus is king of poop and apple pies! l:l

Palkia is a god pokemon. It controls space. It has slight edge over dialga. It comes under top five legendary pokemon. And yeah, it is a legendary pokemon. It should be at the top of the list. It will rip bloody blastoise's ass.

I am utterly confused. Palkia created you people! Master of space! I don't understand why Palkia is not first. I mean, seriously, Blastiose will not get blasted, he'll get disintegrated within a millisecond. Palkia will wipe them all from the mass existance of space!

14 Primarina

Primarina is just gorgeous. U may not like popplio n the first glance but it's definitely worth choosing. Primarina is good against all kahunas in sun and moon ! It's z move it dazzling and it's voice is beautiful. My favourite starter as well as my all time favourite pokemon !

Always picked when playing Sun and Moon. Honestly Greninja is the most overrated starter in pokemon history and Primarina destroys it. This pokemon, with the right moveset, can sweep most of the E4 in Sun and Moon

Primarina is the BEST!
It's the best water/fairy pokemon ever!
With great special attacks and:
Sparkling Aria/Surf/Scald
and Shadow ball, it could defeat a whole team of strong dragons!

Best starter for the game in my eyes, love this darn thing with its amazing coverage.

15 Suicune Suicune is a pure water-type Legendary Pokemon introduced in the games Pokemon Gold and Silver (Generation II). It is the mascot of the video game Pokemon Crystal. According to the Pokedex, Suicune is capable of purifying bodies of dirty water wherever it goes. It is part of the Legendary beasts trio revived by Ho-Oh after they were caught up by the fire in the Brass Tower after it being struck by lightning.

Suicune is no joke about stalling. Have a calmind toxic rest sleep talk suicune and you have a force to be rekoned with. Don't forget the appearance in Celebi voice of the forest where it can purify water and walk on it. So please reconsider about using your favourite starter because normaly there is a Pokemon that can do the same job but better.

Suicune my favourite Pokemon it is just so beautiful and elegant yet strong and bulky, his access to calm mind ice beam etc makes him a force to be reckoned with.

Suicune is an amazing pokemon. She is so fierce, her stats are amazing, and it looks amazing. It rocks its look, it is super rare, and I think it should be number 1.

Haha suicune is a legendary Pokemon it can beat easily blastoise. Haha it should be on the first.

16 Starmie

Starmie is not only the best designed of all Pokemon, but it is an amazing special sweeper with a great type for both attacking and defending, decent bulk, huge speed and massive special attack. Top that off with impressive type coverage (Surf, Thunderbolt, Psychic, Ice Beam, Grass Knot etc.) and Starmie is an absolute force to be reckoned with.
Plus it is really useful as a fast Rapid Spin user making it even more versatile! If you can't tell Starmie is my favourite Pokemon both for its design and its in-game usefulness.
For the record I love Staryu as well.

I caught this on Pokemon Black 2 thinking it was just another ordinary pokemon. But when I started raising it, it shocked me to how good it was! If you do not have this pokemon, you must get it. It's type variety can take down almost any pokemon, and it can learn recover to heal from any damage. The amazing speed adds icing to the cake, making it much stronger than any other water pokemon. Definitely my favourite!

Probably one of the most versatile and well rounded Pokemon. Nostalgia factor. Points for psychic and water STAB. Able to learn plenty of TM/HMs.
Need to use surf? Check. Need a well rounded Pokemon capable of taking town grass Pokemon with psychic or electric Pokemon with power gem? It can use rapid spin to get rid of moves like leech seed or spikes.
With natural cure, burns, poisons, freezes etc. go away upon switching out!

Why is this Pokemon in 8th place?
Starmie is one of the most versatile Pokemon in Pokemon world.
Teach it powerful special attacks like Surf, Ice Beam, Thunderbolt and Psychic. With its high special attack and speed, starmie can defeat all Pokemon. I caught a staryu in vermilion in leaf green and evolved it into a starmie, then it became my best Pokemon throughout the game.

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

Piplup is my absolute favorite Pokemon! He is so adorable and fairly powerful for a baby evolution. I loved him so much that I actually went as him for Halloween in 1st grade. Piplup is awesome, and I am so sad that he is so late on this list. He should be #1!

Piplup is one cute, plyful but feisty penguin Pokemon, he's a ton of fun to have on your team.
Piplup can learn ice attacks as well as water attacks, he can be a funny Pokemon to brighten up your day.

Penguins. Oh wait? You expected more? Well, just Empoleon's Water Steel can wreck Fire Types, and Steel can deal with Poison Types.

Cutest penguin I've seen

18 Azumarill

Azumarill. The second-best Physical Water-type (behind Swampert, obviously...) is now a Fairy. This makes him better. Play Rough and Waterfall, with Huge Power and Belly Drum, if you beat this with a Grass/Steel type, that would be very impressive. Brick Break takes those down, by the way! No Electric types can stand up to this, so this shouldn't be at 16.

I can't believe you people! I'm not trying to be mean, but have you guys ever used this beast?! In the remakes of omega ruby alpha sapphire, this guy is a destroyer! With the fairy typing he/she can wipe out the dragon type elite four member! BEAST!

Azumarill is probably one of the most TANKIEST Pokemon I've probably ever had one my team. It has max EVs now and it is BOSS! Azumarill just thrashes all the other water Pokemon. It's sorta cute too. Besides, it's first evolution is Azurill, which is cute as!

DUDE why is she 17?! Azumarill is now a mix of Fairy AND water! She's probably my strongest Pokemon right next to Garchomp and Raichu. She deserves SO MUCH MORE credit damn it! In gen 6, she one hit KO'd Diantha's Gardevoir.

19 Wailord Wailord, known in Japan as Whaloh, is a Pokémon species in Nintendo and Game Freak's Pokémon franchise. It is a Water Type Pokémon introduced in Generation III. It is the evolved form of Wailmer. When it is jumping out of the water, it makes a giant splash due to its large size. It can dive deep at 10,000 feet (3,000 meters) in one breath. It lives in the sea in large groups called pods. A pod of Wailord travels together in order to search for food, and is able to eat large quantities at one time, such as schools of Wishiwashi. When a Wailmer is attacked by its predators Sharpedo or Dhelmise, its whole pod works to defend it.

I like wailord because of its hp which is so much and also the attacks damaged which is pretty strong. It's also because the move. One of the move was water spout which is perfect to Wailord. It's also unique and the largest Pokemon. Wailord also can learn dive, bounce, and hydro pump without any TM or HM.

I was about to choose Empoleon, but 1. I already voted for him for best steel type 2. He is a water/steel type, so I want to give it to a true water type(I voted a water/steel for steel but there wasn't really any other steel type I would vote for) 3. Wailord has high HP.

Wailord is dope and all but don't evolve it inside your house or just don't bring it inside any where when its evolving!

Has amasing Hit Points, Attack, and Special Attack, and with a grand total of 500 as his base stat, it is a great Pokemon overall.

20 Sharpedo

I love it's rough skin, that give the foe opponent damage when the opponent attack with pyshical attack.
Then it can use ice fang to beat grass-type pokemon.

21 Dewott

GO DEWOTT! He ROCKS! I have a level 21 Dewott and he crushes if Dewott is this good I can't wait until it evolves into Samourott!

Dewott can learn some cool moves like Razor Shell. Dewott is also my favourite Pokemon.

It's oshawott form evolver.. Is cool

Super cute, super strong

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

WHAT! How could this little cuttie get 33?! He is one of the best pokemon not to mention CUTE! Oshawott, Mightyena, and Poochyena are my favorite pokemon, I mean who couldn't love him!? I really think Ash trusts him it's obvious. When he evolves he is BEAST!

I bet that Oshawott will prove to be Ash number 1 Pokemon in Unova. He is so devoted towards ash that on his saying him cute he came with him. That's the true sign of a trustworthy Pokemon.

Oshawott is my little bro's favorite and my bf's sister's favorite. He is really cool. However, I don't like him in the anime. Kinda like a mermaid, in a way.

Poor Oshawott he needs more atention than this. come on he's cute, clumsy, and funny but go ahead laugh it up beacause when he's a freiken Samurott he will tear you to shreds with its beast powers

23 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 evolves into Blastoise.

Squirtle rules. He is one of my favorite water Pokemon and can become a badass with the moves Hydro Pump and Hydro Cannon.

I think Squirtle looks cute and cool with his sunglasses 'cause he looks like a rock-star.

Squirtle is the best water Pokemon of all. He looks so cool with his stylish blackglasses. He is the BOSS.

The only better Pokemon than Squirtle are... guess who? Wartortle and Blastoise.

24 Crawdaunt

Adaptability with aqua jet and muscle band. yeah that's what I thought

25 Ludicolo

With Icium Z and Ice Beam, it can easily take down its Flying type enemies, as it is weak to Flying type moves!

It is the best grss and water type Pokemon. It should be in top ten list.

Giga Drain + Rain Dance + (any move) + (any move) + Rain Dish/Swift Swim = Perfect Speedy Drainer or Annoying Drainer But yea, it is a Pokemon who can knock out the weakness to Fire and Grass

Mirror B, eat your heart out.
