Most Powerful 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.

(Ok, I'm voting for Arceus as the #1 Pokemon in the game; not cards, not anything else)

For one, its stats are (literally) the best you ever see on a Pokemon, being very well balanced, and it EASILY outclasses any Pokemon here.

It's ability to change types can make it almost undefeatable. For example, give it a dark plate and suddenly Mewtwo doesn't look that good.

The last thing I'd like to mention is that it's signature move is not only EXTREMELY powerful, but it also will always get STAB because its type matches Arceus' type.

End of my rant.

How could mewtwo be first!?!? Arceus created the universe, which should prove he's the the most powerful! Mewtwo was created ina factory, out of one of mew's species bones, which also proves that Mew should be more powerful. Since Arceus created the universe, he also planed the creation of mewtwo, but he wouldn't make a pokemon more powerful than him! Arceus made mewtwo weaker than him, so mewtwo couldn't beat him. Anyways, how could you vote for mewtwo!? He's really greedy...

Get with the program people! Whoever thinks Rayquaza is better than Arceus is crazy. Although Rayquaza is scary strong, pretty much NO Pokemon is able to beat Sky Judgement or Judgement. Mew would be tough to beat, but still, Arceus will just use Sky Judgement or judgement. Also, mew would not be created without arceus. Ditto can transform, but it does not change it's level when transformed. If you battle a Arceus with a Ditto, chances are that ditto is bellow Arceus's level. Same case for Mew. Mewtwo is the same case for Mew. Mew and Mewtwo may be able to learn all moves, they can only do that with a tm or hm. Sky Judgement is not s tm or hm, so Arceus has no problem kicking their little butts.

Also, in the movie hoopa and the clash of ages, arceus let hoopa travel through an impossible to travel through, therefore saving Ash's and hoopa's lives. No other Pokemon could do that but Arceus.

This is why I think Arceus is #1 and I am correct. Believe it, people.

Arceus is the best pokemon ever he created everything which proves it right there go type strongest pokemon and it will say arceus is the first and most powerful pokemon true mew change into any pokemon but can't change types which is a weakness mew is the ancestor of all pokemon but arceus is the god of all pokemon a god creates a ancestor even the pokedex says arceus was born to the place were there was nothing so yeah arceus is the best

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 alone may not be as powerful as arceus but mega mewtwo is clearly more powerful than arceus. There are people who think arceus is good so it should be the most powerful Pokemon but let me remind you that in the film arceus and the jewel of life a human was close killing the so called good Pokemon arceus . In the first Pokemon movie it is clearly told that mewtwo is the most powerful Pokemon in the universe. If we look at the stats the total stats of arceus is 720 and that of mega mewtwo x and y is 780( tied with mega rayquaza) So it is clear that arceus does not come near mewtwo and some other pokemons too. It is the wrong information in people's head and the popularity of arceus that it is placed first.

Hands down, Mewtwo is the strongest. Created for the sole reason to be the strongest and to kill them all. Modified pokemon and human dna mixed together into perfection. The only reason he hasn't destroyed the world is obvious: then there would be no more pokemon franchise left for other games. Mewtwo can blast your mind into hell and you will not even notice. Your soul is then tortured for eternity in its own hell realm. Pretty scary. He is also invincible with his psychic shield, his iq has to be pretty high and with that I mean even all super computers in the world connected to each other would be a mere fly against his computing capacity. He can make hurricanes with his mind. He is evil. He only thinks of fighting. He can mind control your best friends and turn them against you if he wants to. He can clone hiw own army (which he would not even need, he does it just for fun).

None of Arceus' stats are excellent. They're all above average, but Mewtwo's Special Attack and Speed stats are excellent, and it has strong enough moves to one or two shot any plate Arceus. Dark plate, meet Aura Sphere. Ghost plate, meet Shadow Ball. Bug plate, meet Flamethrower. The only Pokemon that has a chance at stopping Mewtwo is Attack Form Deoxys, and that's only because it's crazy fast and hits ridiculously hard. But if Mewtwo survives, Deoxys goes bye-bye and then Mewtwo continues obliterating everything in its path.

Arceus created Sinnoh, not the whole universe. Just Sinnoh. Mew contains the DNA of Every Pokemon, meaning It also contains that of Arceus. Mew is Basically the Mother of the World. Mewtow was Made from Mew's DNA, meaning that Mewtwo contains Arceus's DNA. If Mewtwo has the DNA of the thing that Created Sinnoh, Mewtwo could create its own region. It also has the DNA of Dialga, Giratina, and Palkia, so it has the power to rule over Time, Space, and Antimatter, as well as Matter by extension. Mewtwo can move things with its mind and control others, something Arceus cannot do. Finally, Mewtwo doesn't hide in another realm like Arceus, and it isn't afraid to encounter trainers, like Mew.
Summary- Mewtwo has the DNA of all Pokemon, Including Arceus. Therefore, it has the Power to do anything other Pokemon can. It is brave and confident, not hiding like the cowardly Arceus. Even if It has limits, it grows from them. Unlike Mew and Arceus, Mewtwo doesn't feel the need to change itself to ...more

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

Mew has been able to fight evenly with Mewtwo, but has never really gone all out like it was seen with Mewtwo trying to beat him. Mew has also been shown to be the first Pokemon as it has the DNA of all known Pokemon and was shown at the top of the family tree of Pokemon in movie eight. He can transform into any Pokemon and is capable of performing any attack making Arceus' ability to change types ineffective against him, both abilities which Mewtwo is unable to perform as he is a clone and only his psychic abilities were emphasized and enhanced. Mew has also not been shown any limits and only became weak once when the tree of beginning was dying.

Mew is easily the strongest Pokemon in existence. In the battle against MewTwo, Mew wasn't even trying! MewTwo was going ALL OUT against Mew, while Mew was casually negating EVERYTHING MewTwo threw at him! Mew was NEVER even pushed in that fight, and was at LEAST equal with MewTwo, going tit-for-tat with everything MewTwo did, except... unlike MewTwo... Mew wasn't trying, he was just having fun. This strongly implies that IF Mew actually wanted to... HE WOULD HULK SMASH MewTwo into the dirt! Also, unlike MewTwo... Mew can turn into ANY Pokemon (except for MewTwo), giving him an infinite amount of variability advantage over MewTwo, and can therefore exploit psychic-type weaknesses of dark/ghost attacks, and send MewTwo into a dirt nap! The ONLY Pokemon that MIGHT be able to defeat the original Mew is Arceus, but maybe NOT... since, all evidence suggests that Mew could turn into Arceus! It's also noteworthy to notice that Arceus cannot turn into Mew! The fact that Arceus can use any ...more

Well at some episode that is, I think never made it on screen or abandoned, Professor Oak, Ash and so is Pikachu of course, encountered Mew And Mewtwo. They Battled, and guess what who won... Mew! Prof. Oak Also Said that that is why Mew has the more chance to win his fight against Mewtwo. Ash and the group thought that Mew might lost the fight... but they were wrong. mewtwo has like killed mew and teleported him to another dimension and can't get out. but, when mewtwo was distracted, mew again appeared and pulled mewtwo that is paralyzed by mew then mewtwo died. And Mew is so cute and cuddly but can learn any moves. (except Draco meteor, etc. ) #TeamMew

Guys, here is a fact and this is the truth: Mew is the most powerful Pocket Monster. If you raise your Mew right, it will have the most powerful, yet supreme, advantage. It can also devolve any Pocket Monster at free will. No other Pocket Monster can learn "Devolution Beam" at all. Why, it can even defeat Arceus, the 3rd most powerful Pocket Monster and Mewtwo, the 2nd most powerful Pocket Monster, even in both Mega Evolutionary forms. Mathmatically, physically, mentally, verbally, and according to its stats, obviously is the most powerful Pocket Monster. (This is true and beautiful, it makes me want to cry! =, })

4 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.

Settler of arguments. He has eniugh power to take on Groudon and Kyogure at the same time and settle there beef. This is why I rank him so high. also his speed is one of the best ever. The only Pokémon that might be faster is Zekrom and Reshiram as they both have jet tails LOL.

Rayquaza is a BEAST. Plus, in the wiki, it says Kyogre and Ground on are two of the strongest pokemon, and Rayquaza is the one who quells their argument, thus Rayquaza is powerful. I mean look at him. Besides the no teeth part, Rayquaza looks awesome, and they made it so for a reason.

Why is Rayquaza not near the top 3? It is a powerhouse, it has good defences and is fast. SO OP. When it Mega Evolves it goes from godly to so powerful that Smogon created a new tier, AG that stands for Anything Goes because they thought that Mega Rayquaza was too powerful for the Uber tier, which is a tier for very powerful Pokémon. Also, it's shiny is really cool.

Rayquaza is a beast. It should by number one because it's mega base stat is tied for the base stat of all pokemon. It can also mega evolve without a mega stone so you can have an item on it.

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

Ditto is everything. Not only can it transform into any Pokemon - it can transform into anything it wants, organic and non-organic things alike. Any Pokemon on this list? Ditto can become them. It can become whatever kind of Pokemon theyr'e weak against. It can become - theoretically - anything that exists. The moon, the Earth, Arceus, etc.

An organized army of Dittoes could take over the planet if they wanted - so could a lot of Pokemon, I guess. But the difference is that Dittoes could do it without anyone ever noticing. It could replace your family and your friends without you realizing it. Eventually, a Ditto could replace you. They could replace us all.

Unless... They already have.

Ditto should be #1, at least tied one with Arceus, or #2 because he can turn into Arceus. In a battle between (Ditto) Arceus vs Arceus, no one would win, but Ditto could easily defeat every other pokemon by turning into Arceus, so he basically is the best other than Arceus since they would be the same thing, but the thing that makes Ditto #2 is that Arceus actually created the pokemon world, Ditto did not, he could only turn into the creator, he is not the real thing. But at most, Ditto is #2 or tied at #1

Can Form into any pokemon... enough said right? Wrong as he can turn into any pokemon you have to consider that he is still ditto and can not copy somthing like Dialgas time control.

It can transform into anything, In my opinion it's the most powerful if it was to fight to a pokemon it can just transform to the weakness of the other. People are voting for the other ones but ditto can transform into them. If I was a pokemon trainer which I'll never be considering it doesn't exist, I would pick Ditto it will make it barely possible to defeat and I don't have to capture any other pokemon

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

Controler of time and knows one of the most strongest moves in the game. He could have a great battle with Mewtwo considering he was the one to calm Arceus.

He is the controller of time. He was able to calm arceus by changing history. If he wants he can change anything.

The most powerful steel type Pokemon ever. It is very powerful it nearly defeated Palkia

Favorite Pokemon deserves number 1 place + it controls time!
Beat that arceus!

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

Strong pokemon without a doubt I just don't think that he could win against anyone ranked above him besides ditto. He is strong and majestic but his power Maxes unlike Mew or Arceus or Dialga.

In the anime I don't really think that Lugia could actually beat Arceus in the anime. But still, Lugia is one of my favorite Pokemon and it probably can beat Giratina in the anime. Lugia will probably have a tough battle though, while he still could take him down considering he knew ice beam.

I think that Lugia can beat an arceus because it's speed it's uncatchable. Lugia has a huge amount of speed even a deoxs speed form can't catch it! If a Lugia was battling an arceus it would be too fast so arceus wouldn't see it!

Lugia is both strong and beautiful. It can win any battle--if trained well-- with its powerful moves.

8 Giratina Giratina is a Pokémon species in Nintendo and Game Freak's Pokémon franchise. Created by Ken Sugimori, Giratina first appeared in the video games Pokémon Diamond and Pearl, but gained prominence in the sister game, Pokémon Platinum, which it was made the mascot of.

Giratina may be kind of evil. But that doesn't mean that he isn't scary powerful. I mean come on! He got banned from our world because he can't stop destroying things with is anti matter.

Giratina is the best of the three Dialga Palkia and Giratina. I think it is far more powerful than Lugia and Rayquaza

Giratina was the first pokemon that arceus created, so he should be at least the second most powerful.

I know Giratina has some power. And I think Giratina should be #3. And where's ditto he should like #5

9 Ho-Oh Ho-Oh, known in Japan as Houou, is a Legendary Pokémon species in Nintendo and Game Freak's Pokémon franchise.

I think Ho-Oh should deserve a spot up there with Lugia. I actually thought that people liked attack type Pokemon. Lugia is a defense type and still people think it should be ranked higher than Ho-Oh. Don't you guys think that he looks majestic like Lugia? Vote for Lugia & Ho-Oh!

Ho-oh is the most powerful Pokemon and is the rarest Pokemon it was weird ash keeps seeing it

Ho-Oh is Lugias opposite and would be should be more appreciated Pokemon

It is very powerful pokemon because it observe the pokemons powers

10 Grimer

Grimer is actually quite a powerful Pokemon,

Pile of trash

He evolves into the kummeister

Grimer will KILL!

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

Palkia is AMAZING. First of all this Pokemon was the first legendary Pokemon I caught in Pokemon Pearl. Second of all this Pokemon is, yes one of the Pokemon that can learn the most powerful move ever, Draco meteor. AND, if this matters to you in the anime movie, Arceus and the Jewel of life, palkia and dialga took on the most powerful (in my opinion) Pokemon, arceus.

She's girl idiots she's strongest water Pokemon stronger than dialga and giratina

Powerful without a dobut but without Dialga he would not be able to beat anyone above him on this list.

lord of space, very powerful and very much underrated, deserves a higher spot on the list

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

In the game Darkrai has a much higher speed and special attack than Arceus, it also has dark void which Darkrai can use to move first and put arceus asleep then its ability bad dreams drains a quarter of its health and on the same turn it uses nightmare to drain a further half of its health, Then Darkrai can finish it easily with a move like aura sphere while it is still sleeping meaning darkrai can defeat Arceus in 3 turns while retaining full health. And in the movies he was AMAZING even though ash and his friends scorned him he still took on diagla and palkia all by himself! In conclusion DARKRIA FOR THE WIN!

As making pokemon go to sleep is quit powerful other pokemon can and will do this in battle but never the less his attack stat is out of this world and his speed also contributes to how well he does in battles but I don't belive him winning aginst mew mewtwo or arceus would ever happen

Darkrai is like BEAUTIFUL. Not in appearance, but in PERSONALITY. I mean, he saved Ash and his friends! He didn't care that they hated the very sight of him, something that'd enrage us!

Darkrai's dark viod is one of the best moves (if your using it) because you could have pathetic Pokemon on your team and still have him and win!

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

Entei is the coolest Pokemon ever because when he roars, over 10,000 volcanoes explode!

So awesome don't say he's not powerful he can hurt kyogre probably

If entei is here where are suicune and raikou?

I love this guy

14 Gardevoir Gardevoir is a third-generation Pokémon species originally introduced as a Psychic type creature in Pokémon Ruby and Sapphire in Nintendo and Game Freak's Pokémon franchise.

Gardevoir is beast it can even stand up against mewtwo but will probably lose but will put him to like 1 health he destroys and can telaport to different places as shown in the anime and can destoy so many different pokemon and is basically palkia dialga and rayquaza level so it is to op for a lot of pokemon.

Mega Gardevoir has great special attack and with calm mind this thing is a beast

I did it be case of evolutionary gaming brosskie for life

She is awesome!

15 Mega Rayquaza

I'm voting for my son. He'd want me to. Besides Mew (or mtwo? ) this is the only 1 of 3 he said to look up "for Christmas"...Is it Dec 23 already? ;-)
Ssecretly I'm geeking out over which design of all this incredible art to choose for a mural. I like Arceus so he's going up WITH his 3faves.

This Pokemon is banned from all types of Pokemon battles, because it is so OP

It is very cool and it can mega evolve without buying a mega stone

I have mega rayquza and he is beast mode I say he is the best Pokemon ever

16 Alakazam Alakazam was first shown in game freaks Pokemon Red & Green (Blue for outside of Japan) version. Alakazam is the final evolution of the Abra line. It evolves from Kadabra when traded. It is a pure psychic type. It is said to have an IQ of 5000 and is a human like Pokemon. It has high special attack more.

It can flipping one shot a Pokemon around its level because the attack speed is so high

Alaskan is what I believe is the coolest gen 1 pokemon other than Charizard

It has TWO spoons! what more can anybody want


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

hoopa can basically summon and control any pokemon including arceus. it also can use any move by channeling it through its rings. in the movie it is seen DESTROYING legenarys with ease.

Hoopa can steal ANYTHING, which means that even though it isn't the best, it could do some serious damage.

I have a card of him and he is awesome

Watch the movie point made

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

a cool and yet so powerful pokemon, an incredible combination and would put up a good fight even against ho-oh, same for reshirem

He is one of my favorite pokemon ever. I have caught 3 of them on pokemon black and white. ( Levels... 139, 68, and 49 )

Zekrom has a superb attack and defense stat that easily Pokemon sweep

It's cool Pokemon and like it very much

19 Magikarp Magikarp, known in Japan as Koiking, is a Pokémon species in Nintendo and Game Freak's Pokémon franchise. It resembles an orange fish with whiskers. It was created by Ken Sugimori, Magikarp first appeared in the video games Pokémon Red and Blue and subsequent sequels. It is a water type that evolves more.

Magikarp is easily the most powerful Pokemon. The only reason splash does no damage is because it does so much damage it resets the universe. Please vote for magikarp! He could easily bring all Pokemon to extinction if he wanted to.

Magtkamp is the craziest little fish capable of overcoming any obstacle "if mad enough" not to mention when only being the fish he is he can leap mountains. Imagine his evolution which is Moore than 20 times bigger. Holy mackerel.

What is wrong with you people? Splash is easily the greatest move in video game history.. Not to mention flail and a tackle will eff up every other Pokemon who ever tries to mess with magikarp.

A little known fact is that Magikarp is the Pokemon before all Pokemon that created even the Gods! Magikarp has unknown power that it could tap into anytime it wanted... It just never needs too...

20 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.

Are you nuts? Charizard is worthing more. However you take it shiny or normal it is a wild beast with very high attack and accuracy. Also it can win legendary Pokemons like moltres Hitachi arcticuno celebi entei dialga and Croydon.

He can be very very powerful if he had overheat and a focus sash and a brand new move called "hell fire" and "Angel wings" hell be very unstoppable.

Charizard is the worst he always get to the top 1 in other lists, and it's too bad and stupid! I should call it butt wing or flying fart Lizard or stupid egg dumpster.

From Natalie Hsueh in SHSID, 4(5).

Actually arceus is more powerful than charizard x. the stats are the same, except arceus has higher health

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

With speed form it can out speed any non-boosted Pokemon. In Attack form it can deal more physical and special damage then any other Pokemon in the game (Shuckle's roll-out does not count because its way to hard to pull off). And in defense form it may not have the best defenses of all but it can take a hit from almost any Pokemon and still stand. Not to mention its got an amazing move pool in all of its forms.

Deoxys should have a place in the top 3! It can change into one of its 4 forms and in the anime you can clearly see that deoxys has unbelievable power!

Never saw Deoxys but my fiend talked about it and he said all abou it and I think its really cool

Deoxys is the second most powerful Pokemon only rivaled by Mewtwo.

22 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 very cute. Pikachu is my second favorite Pokémon. He is determined to finish what he started. I think he is not that powerful though.

Pikachu is very cute and is very powerful in his power. He never gives up

He's so CUTE! And also he has thunder bolt for his power which is awesome!

Pikachu is very powerful Pokemon his thunder shock can bit a legandry of Pokemon

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

It does say that Reshiram could inflame the world. I've already got 3 Reshirams on Pokemon White2 (lvs are: 100,56, and 54) Please vote to make Reshiram higher ranked than Zekrom! I've already posted 3 times including this one (posted on: Lugia, Reshiram, and Deoxys.

Reshiram looks awesome and Reshiram is awesome. Reshiram is so much better than Zekrom.

Yes I love reshiram

Rusharam really should be at the top

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

So cute! And in the movie it actually stunned the two legendaries, Giratina and Dialga for a second.
