Top Ten Pokemon Champions
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.
She has great character, a balanced team with great synergy and she uses one of my favorite water type. Overall she's just on top. Sadly I don't really like her as much as others do.
Any weakness her team might have, she makes up for it with at least 2 of her Pokemon. By the way, she also has a Pokemon that has no weakness. Her team is level 60-70. That means virtually all the time you have to grind. Her Garchomp can KO anything in one or two hits. And her Garchomp has a Sitrus Berry and great HP and physical attack. Cynthia's team has more synergy than any other champion team. The only champion with higher level Pokemon is Diantha. But her team isn't nearly as strong in terms of Pokemon. And in Pokemon D/P/P, there was no Exp. Share, so when you were grinding, you had to earn every individual level for yourself.
Hands down the best champion fight in all of Pokémon and I doubt that Gamefreak will make someone as good as her. Just look at her team. Her team is very diverse and designed to put you in a disadvantage despite having an elemental upperhand. For instance, every single pokemon has insane IV's, she has a very few weaknesses that are covered with absurd counterattacks and we can't forget her Spiritomb who had literally no weakness (fairy type wasn't a thing back then). Nobody from the previous and next games compares to her tbh.
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?
The strongest NPC character of the games with a level 88 Pikachu.
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!
I mean has a dragonite!
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)
She was easy but fun to fight.
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
Wallace did pretty Good
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
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
This guy is so stupid
This takes me back.
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.
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..
Leon is a joke of champion. He just had to have a Charizard. Yes Charizard is cool, but its SOOO overexposed its annoying.
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!
By the way, I think that Iris should not be ranked number 4 because to be real why the hell is she so high ash is so low on the list
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?
Attention need #5
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
Would have been a more interesting champion than Leon.
