Top Ten Pokemon Champions

The Top Ten
1 Cynthia

Cynthia is better than all the other champions by a long shot. Prior to gen 6, her first pokemon had 3 immunities and no weakness. And then it gets worse. You have to face the onslaught of the rest of her team, including her Garchomp, who is arguably the best pseudo legend. Her team is well balanced, being able to cover any weakness her other pokemon have. 4x weak to ice on her Garchomp? Switch in for Lucario. Lucario weak to fighting? Switch in for Roserade/Togekiss (Pt). That, and her pokemon were very high levels in the games she debuted in. Overall, Cynthia's team is what makes her a great champion, one that will not go down without a fight.

2 Red Red is a Pokémon Trainer from Pallet Town, Kanto. He is the first character to be playable in the Pokémon series and his initial appearance is set in the Generation I main games. He has since then made various appearances in Pokémon media, including the Generation III remakes of Red, Green, Blue,... read more

Red deserves to be above Steven and Cynthia, he is stronger and has caught a lot of pokemon. But not even that, you never battle him in the Pokemon League, he just serves as a hidden final boss.

Red has caught all 152 Pokémon and has been to all the regions. He has also defeated Blue and forced team rocket to be disbanded. He even has Mewtwo and Deoxys. Uhh what does Cynthia have, a useless togekiss, that's Trash.

Of course he's awesome, but does he really count as a champion?

3 Iris Iris is from the Pokemon bwhite version & Pokemon black 2 & white. She ether was the gym leader in Opelucid city in white version. She first appeared to aid Bianca, Burgh, and the playable character when Bianca's Munna was stolen, & acted as a bodyguard. In Black 2 & White 2, she was the champion. Iris... read more

Iris is the cheeriest champion ever. She is certainly the only Champion who actually uses strategy instead of attacking right away. Well except for Cynthia's Spiritomb (shudders).

Iris is so cheerful, adventurous and energetic. What is with all the hate on Iris. Even if she says,"Such a little kid." doesn't mean she is a bad character. It suddenly became her habit but she laughs it off. Don't forget, Haxorous is one of the Pokémon with a One-Hit K.O move.

Iris is strong! Her haxorus is killer, lapras can sometimes be a challenge and hydregion is evil!

4 Diantha

Diantha could have been one of the top three is because that she has a REALLY good strategy. I like how she was an actress and everyone wasn't expected to be her as the champion. You can only meet her TWICE or THREE times in X/Y. You might say, "She is the least person to be the champion because she is an actress." Well, think again!

She is too easy and it felt like she was a movie star and then a champion on the side when it really should have been the other way around.

She's really cool, and has a good design, she can also be pretty tough, unless you have over leveled Pokemon (like me)

5 Wallace

Champion Wallace has a balanced water team, protecting his pokemon from electric and grass weakness, his memorable pokemon are Ludicolo, Gyarados and Specially his beautiful and stressful Milotic. a deserved champion for the water lovers.

Wallace is magnificent. He went from being a small Gym Leader living in a damn meteor, to a champion. I mean, sure, he looks gay, but.. HE'S AMAZING.

Elegant ans strong, combination that can ruin your team! But of course I can beat him alone

6 Blue

He was such an ass that I really darn enjoyed destroying him.

He had a well balanced team, and being your rival, was so fun to destroy

7 Lance

Lance may be easy to prepare for and battle but three Dragonites is amazing plus his theme is epic.

Lance is the dragon master,the most strongest type in Pokemon.

In let's go he had four flying type pokemon and I think he only had two or three dragons

8 Alder
9 Leon

Everything about this man makes him the best. From the way he is almost overjoyed when someone finally beats him after almost a decade, to the little details like how the hall of fame theme is in his theme. All around a real champion guy.

Like damn his dragapult kept killing my pokemon. Charizard was too easy to defeat because I had a vaporeon, but before I got to charizard, damn his pokemon..

Don't like him. Boring and overrated in universe. Would get tired of seeing him win all the time.
Also his ace is a Charizard, so he loses even more points.

10 Ash Ketchum Ash Ketchum, known as Satoshi in Japan, is a fictional main character in the Pokémon franchise owned by Nintendo. Ash is training to be a Pokemon Master, with his buddy Pikachu. Ash tries to stop the evil Team Rocket from stealing his Pikachu.

Ash will be Champion of Pokemon Sun and Moon, The Author is not letting Ash be Champion because Ash's Goal is to be a Pokemon Champion, If Ash becomes a Champion then Pokemon is over. Ash can use its Ultimate Team for the Championship

Technicaly he is a chamoion for the orange league. I don't think that he will win any other league. But he deserves to in my opinion.

Ash should be 1st his pikachu could beat anything!

The Contenders
11 Steven

Somehow gen 3 was my introduction to pokemon so Steven was basically my first champion. Overall, I remember that I enjoyed the fight since it was balanced in my opinion. Also to this day, Metagross gives me PTSD. Looking back he's still one of the more solid champions.
8/10 would fight him again if I had the time.

Bro my boy Steven deserves so much more love... He uses a shiny Mega Metagross and is a gentleman through and through. What is not to love about his perfect face and personality?

12 N

I didn't really know where to put him at first because he just seemed like he will be a spoiled brat. But my god do I like his character. He looks just so collected and ready to kill at the same time. Furthermore, I really like that he uses the box legendary and both fossil pokemon.
Solid character and a nice battle so you can't really go wrong with him.
7/10 would subscribe to his onlyfan

13 Mustard

Would have been a more interesting champion than Leon.
