Top 10 Strongest Legendary Pokemon

A list of the top 10 strongest Legendary Pokemon. Mythical Pokemon are not included in this list.
The Top Ten
1 Mewtwo 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.

In the actual games, yes, mewtwo is probably stronger. In the anime, no. But dice I value the games more strongly than the anime, mewtwo, I choose you! Also, if mewtwo has the power to control minds, couldn't it just control arceus's mind and make it lose? All these facts combined prove that mewtwo and s actually stronger than arceus. Plus mewtwo can mega evolve, and both of those mega evolutions could easily wreck arceus in an instant. And even if arceus became dark type via the plates, mew two could just control it's mind. Plus, it has survived being stabbed through the chest by deoxys, which makes it pretty hardy. Also, it can wield a giant spoon, which in addition to being just plain awesome (and a ripoff of kadabra, admittedly) it has killed deoxys with it and also shadow (see DEATH BATTLE: MEWTWO VS SHADOW) which also makes it very strong. All this leads up to mewtwo being stronger than arceus

Mewtwo is stronger than Rayquaza, when they were battling in the games, Mewtwo got Rayquaza's health down to 1% with just one little hit bruh, all he needed was a little Atk, Boost and it's not gonna be too good for Rayquaza, and People still say that Rayquaza's better? And just like Rayquaza, Mewtwo can evolve into 2 different forms, 2, without a Mega-Stone in the Movies, unlike someone weaker that only has 1 form lol, beat that Rayquaza, and Mewtwo can beat Mega-Rayquaza in Mewtwo's Mega-Form, he needs to use the right moves, like keep using a dragon type move, instead of weaker ones.

Mewtwo is beast because if mewtwo killed all those scientists in a millisecond (the scientists who created it), and it can control minds then yes it should at LEAST be number two if not one. And like it says Mewtwo could control all the Pokemon of the world's minds and kill Arceus like that! #Arceus get rent m8!

Mewtwo is by far better than Rayquaza, Mewtwo can beat arceus easily when Mewtwo goes into his X or Y Mega-Forms, to all the Rayquaza fans out there, Mewtwo got Rayquaza down to 1% health with just 1 hit in the games, all Mewtwo needed is 1 Atk, Boost and it's down hill from here Rayquaza, sorry mate, he's just too powerful..

Mewtwo is also better than Mew surprisingly, in the fight, if it wasn't for the Hyper and Max potions, Mewtwo could beat Mew 2 times, maybe not in the Movies, but even in the Movies, Mewtwo would win the fight, don't forget Mew could possibly be Arceus, because it is the Asnsester of all Pokémon, and it can turn into every Pokémon in the universe including even Arceus.

2 Rayquaza 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.

Rayquaza is so awesome alone but mega evolved he is just an absolute destroyer he looks the coolest too he has the highest stats and should be number 1! He has been my favourite since I started playing Pokemon and still is and arceus is not superior to Rayquaza, arceus is important but so are the other legendary Pokemon like dialga and palkia with space and time and groudon with expanding the land arceus couldn't make the universe on his own! If you agree please vote for ray because ray should be first

This thing is a beast. Let me explain why with logical evidence.

1. It doesn't need a Mega Stone to Mega Evolve.

This is probably the main reason it is OP. Now, you can run a Focus Sash on Rayquaza so it can survive a hit and take out it's main threats, run Lum Berry to remedy an otherwise crippling status effect, or use Life Orb to jack up it's already overpowered attacks. Speaking of which...

2. Rayquaza's movepool

This thing's movepool is absolutely ridiculous. After just one turn of setup with Dragon Dance, this thing can nuke almost anything with Dragon Ascent, including most legendaries. If you do run into an issue somehow, you can run a Rayquaza set with Earthquake or V-Create. Additionally, it can finish off many fast threats with Extreme Speed.

3. It's ability

This is another major reason why it was banned. Before ORAS, Rayquaza had a 2x weakness to Rock and 4x weakness to Ice. Because of it's new ability, Delta Stream, it doesn't ...more

Rayquaza is awesome and has an awesome move pool but nobody beats his mega evolution. He should be number 1 because he does have the highest stats and he is stronger than race us so I think rayquaza should be the creator of Pokemon. He is also very cool looking and presents as a powerful asset to your team if you catch him and have him learn the correct moves.

Rayquaza should be at least second. Third is good for sure but Mega Rayquaza's stats are equal to Mewtwos and doesn't need an item to mega evolve. If Aceus had all the plates than I guess he could defeat Mega Rayquaza but he wouldn't go down without a fight.

What I trying say is that Mega Rayquaza would beat any of Mewtwo's mega. I mean Rayquaza defeat both Primals with just one move.

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

I really like dialga, it's design is like the best of all legendary Pokemon! Its stats are also "unbelievable", like when I say "UNBELIEVABLE" I mean it.

This is my favorite designed Pokemon.

Dialga is SO awesome. He wrecked Palkia and is the strongest dragon-type (even strong than kyurem I tested it) and his roar of time wrecks everything in London diamond.

If this guy was legit than he could just freeze time whenever he wanted, teleport his enemies seconds before an apylocayse or just zap himself to when his opponents were weak and powerless. Unfortunately you can do that in the game but good Pokemon with good tm possibilities and stats

TONS of resistance + immunity to poison. One of the few dragons to survive the invasion of the fairies, no?

4 Giratina 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.

In terms of lore, Giratina should be 2nd only to Arceus.

The anime does a terrible job of getting Giratina right (am I the only one bothered by the fact he doesn't use shadowforce more than twice in all the anime?

The Magna (Pokemon Adventures) nails Giratina!

The Games giratina is really good, maybe not the best, but definitey better than its given credit for...

I have a level 100 giratina in X and Y with max IVs, it has never lost in combat once and can single handed destroy the entire elite and its has destroyed arceus in battle, plus the move shadow force to me is the most overpowered move in the game, it can break any sort of protect move and can't be hit the turn before. I know Pokemon lore and how arceus is supposed to be strongest but in my mind giratina deserves top spot

This is ridiculous. Dialga and Palkia are supposed to be the beings that shaped space and time, and Giratina is supposed to be their more powerful counterpart. The list should go: Arceus, Giratina, then Dialga and Palkia.

Why is giratina below dialga? That might have changed but while I am posting this comment the ruler of antimatter is below the ruler of time. Giratina is the head of the creation trio and should not be below dialga

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

Lugia is a tank Pokemon which can be used by professional players to gain control of the battle. It can learn many types of moves which makes the situation even better. It can also learn recover and roost to avoid fainting in the battle if it managed to strengthen up it's stats. Gaining advantage of this Pokemon is for the professionals not for the beginners who wants to go all the way out attacking. Having a high speed makes it even faster to power up before getting hits. It's secret ability multi scale gives it the advantage of strengthening it's stats in the beginning and when it recovers to full health. With all these reasons LUGIA is the best Pokemon for the professional players.

Lugia is the guardian of sea. It is also the master of 3 legendary birds - Articuno, Zapdos & Moltres like in the 2nd Pokemon movie Ash, Pikachu & Lugia in danger. I think it can also defeat Hoopa.

Lugia is powerful. I saw it on YouTube and lugia is unbeatable by darkrai hooh and mewtwo. He use hydo pump and use aeroblast with one hit attack. Don't you believe it, lugia is awesome. I hear on others that lugia flatter its huge wings that can destroy a house. It's so cool man. Wow you have to believe this.

Lugia is the king of all! Don't say a word! I'll punch you down! Just kidding. Honestly, lugia for me is the greatest. I have it in my crystal and its wonderful. It smacks oponent at its reatest. And also, teach it attacks and it will be unbeatable!

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

This Pokemon is beautiful and has such a unique design. What really confuses me is that it represents Pokemon BLACK when it itself is WHITE I guess they wanted to mix it up a bit but I don't like it that much it doesn't make sense to me. Maybe they could add some black details to Reshiram and white details to Zekrom? I don't know it'd just make more sense to me

Reshiram could beat an ice type like Lugia. With it's powerful moves. Yes, Lugia would freeze Reshiram in a battle, but Reshiram could escape it, but if Reshiram burned Lugia it could not get out of it. Also it would be a powerful hit.

Reshiram is one of the Tao trio - it is a part of the 'Original Dragon'. If Reshiram was to combine with Kyurem and Zekrom, not only would they annihilate Perfect Zygarde, but don't forget. It's Reshiram's stats + Zekrom's stats + Kyurem's stats and it would also be a mix between the three Pokémon's types. So if a trainer got the whole of the Tao trio, GG. The trainer just got a nuke.

Do NOT underestimate that guy because of the fluffy "thing" between his legs. With Sunny Day and Blue Flare he'll burn those damn fairies to ashes!
The ONLY Dragon-type Pokemon resisting both Fairy and Ice-types.
Yeah, he rules.

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

Palkia is great and his spacial rend is so strong. This guy also learns the very rare hydro pump, so he deserves to be the strongest. Plus, in the game, Arceus's plates only turn him into that type; He does not get protected by them like in the movie, so palkia can still destroy arceus because hydro pump is stronger than judgement (which is Arceus's signature).

Palkia can take any damage, Dialga used roar of time on Palkia and he survived in plus its 150 damage and it's a dragon type so its super efective on Palkia and his special move can use any time, faster then roar of time, no need to have an extra round to use again. He is faster then Dialga.

I have a Palkia my pokemon white 2 and it is wonderful! It has wonderful attacks and wins every battle I put it into. It's hard to beat a level 100 Palkia with 4 awesome attacks that do significant damage.

I have a level 100 Shiny Palkia in my Omega Ruby game and it is super powerful and it takes down everything in its path.

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

Zekrom is just an absolute beast as he he has two of the sick types dragon/electric. If I was going to catch a legendary then I would use the move he knows. Thunderwave.

Zerkrom is very strong and he/She can even suck the power of giratina, palkia, dialga, and reshiram to take over the Pokemon universe.

Zekrom is very great! I like him very much

Zekrom should be the best electric Pokemon!

9 Yveltal Yveltal Yveltal is a fictional creature in the Pokemon Franchise. Introduced in the 6th gen, Yveltal is a legendary Dark/Flying type Pokemon, and is the mascot of Pokemon Y. It is classified as the Destruction Pokemon. Yveltal has the ability to absorb life energy, and when its life comes to an end, it steals ...read more.

This Pokemon can literally absorb life. You can't get much more powerful than that. In theory, this is one of the strongest Pokemon, only beaten by gods.

Should be much higher. Miles better than Palkia, Zekrom, Lugia and Reshiram. Master of Destruction and Damage.

Several beat the champion and the Eliot four by him self on omega ruby and honestly I think he would beat arcus... I don't really like him so recall would beat him with olbolving sing

You do know that if this guy dies he absorbs absolutely everything in the universe just to stay alive. (if he dies we die)

10 Solgaleo Solgaleo Solgaleo is a dual Psychic/Steel Legendary Pokèmon introduced in Generation VII. It evolves from Cosmoem when leveled up in Pokemon Sun starting at level 53.It is one of Cosmog's final forms,the other being Lunala. Solgaleo takes a special form called the Radiant Sun phase when it uses Sunsteel strikes. ...read more.

Probably one of the most competitive Legendary Pokemon of all time, has great coverage, attack and doesn't have very many weaknesses. Better than Lunala competitive-wise!

Solgaleo is da best! It's so strong and it looks so awesome using its z move!

Come on solgaleo should be in the top ten. it is way better than metapod you people

He's a legendary

The Contenders
11 Thundurus Thundurus Thundurus, known in Japan as Voltolos, is a Legendary Pokémon species in Nintendo and Game Freak's Pokémon franchise.

Thunderous looks like and 80 year old with frostbite strapped to a storm cloud! What us wrong with you this should be down at the bottom of a top 700 list.

I don't vote for this chick. Tornadus, Thundurus, and Landorus were either created by Zekrom or Rayquaza.

In pokemon x I have landorus, not thundurus nor tornadus. someone traded me the landorus for my galvantula that I hached out of an egg when it was just a joltik.

Lamest legendary ever

12 Xerneas Xerneas Xerneas is a fictional creature in the Pokemon Franchise. Introduced in Gen 6, it is a legendary Fairy type Pokemon, and the mascot of Pokemon X. Classified as the Life Pokemon, Xerneas has the ability to give eternal life, which occurs when the horns on its head shine in seven lights. When its life ...read more.

Xerneas can easily crush Yveltal, as well as other previous legendaries if you train it correctly. Even if Arceus may have the highest base stats, having better training is overall stronger.

Technically Xerneas is the strongest legendary since he is the "life Pokemon" and can bring anything turned into stone by Yveltal into life.

Xerneas is the best Fairy legendary ever. He is even better than yveltal and more cool-looking and beautiful. He should get number 1 spot because Areus is overrated or I am gonna suicide

I've beaten a team of level. 100s, including a Lugia, with just Xerneas. No questions asked, this Pokemon is overpowered and stylish.

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

This Ice/Dragon type is a part of the Unova Tao Trio. The Boundary Pokémon looks like a flying T-Rex, with elongated legs, short arms, and a massive set of icy wings. Kyurem is pretty powerful in its own right, with a 660 base stat, the Pressure ability, and some decent Ice-type moves (including Blizzard). It features nice offense with 130 Attack and Sp. Attack.

The real bread and butter is that Kyurem has two other (stronger) forms. By using a DNA splicer, players can choose to fuse Kyurem with either Reshiram or Zekrom. The end result will transform this ice-imbued dragon into White Kyurem or Black Kyurem. Each choice comes with its own unique ability, moves, and bumps Kyurem's stats up to a massive 700 base total.

Kyurem is the only Pokemon to have a two type combination(fire and ice) that is practically imposibble in real life. That is why he should have a higher place and not Mega Mewtwo who is basically the same as Mewtwo, so he/she( I don't know) counts

I suggest that kyurem is one of the strongest pokemon on earth. As in the anime movie kyurem fought against mega latios and requaza and had a tie battle

You can at least try to spell the pokemon's names correctly.
Arceus, giratina, dialga, palkia, kyurem, mewtwo, reshiram,zekrom, xerneas, yveltal (pronounced ee-vill-tall). Speaking of the comment before me.

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

Oh, I get it! BIDOOF is on the list but Lunala isn't? Bidoof isn't even a legendary but k

Much better than sogaleo. I mean it's a giant BAT! You have to agree with me this time.

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

Groudon should not be this low, I will go as far to say the same about Kyogre. In it's primal form, this pokemon has the 3rd or 4th highest base stats in the series, racking up to an outstanding 770 total in stats, bypassing Kyurem, Arceus, Hoopa, and Ho-ho. Along with it's primal form, it gains the type of fire to go along with it's ground type, meaning that it's weaknesses (Ice, Grass) are neutralized, leaving wate- oh wait, it's ability negates water
attacks, meaning it's only weakness is ground. Groudon's move pool is awesome, being able to learn moves like earthquake, precipice blades, hammer arm, and eruption, it can also learn a plethora of fire type attacks, and with it's fire and ground typing, it gets a stab in both those category of moves. 24th place really..., this thing should at-least be in the top 5.

Where's primal groudon on this list?

Groudon is the expander of the land's mass, basically Gaia in Pokémon form. Groudon is one of the strongest if you are comparing raw power (None of that training stuff] to anything else.

My best legendary

16 Zapdos Zapdos Zapdos, known in Japan as Thunder, is a Legendary Pokémon species in Nintendo and Game Freak's Pokémon franchise.

Zapdos is terrible!

Heck Zapdos Worst can't defeat a Charizard who has the weakness

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

He can beat latias in a sec with surf waterfall and dragon breath.Because he is a beast and he can beat all the ultra beasts.

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

Why Is Latias And Latios Down here? So, you're saying that Zapdos, Articuno and Moltres Stronger than the eon duo? Latios And Latias Should Be At The Top 10.

Definitely! I love my latias!

Mega latias is just epic.

Latias should be higher

19 Moltres Moltres Moltres, known in Japan as Fire, is a Legendary Pokémon species in Nintendo and Game Freak's Pokémon franchise.

Moltres is the strongest of the legendary birds of kanto! It is super affective on the other two birds! It is one of my favorite fire type Pokemon

One of 3 legendary birds

Charizard is better

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

Like charizard it faints at the sight of rock Pokemon and stealth rock. A very underwhelming legendary

Ho-oh is so powerful! I think if it learns some very good moves, then it would beat anyone, even Arceus

Ho oh, is total crap compared to Lugia.

Not OP. He lost very badly to a Groudon...

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

Zygarde 100% form is stronger than mewtwo and its health is just amazing. I'm sure zygarde could at least be the second strongest pokemon after mewtwo. I could prove it by looking up their stats

Zygarde is the Order Pokemon and has a very unclear story, but with its 100% form, it is true Perfection, deserving at least top 5.

Zygarde is so powerful it should be number 1 if not it's definitely 2 like who puts it on number 30!

Zygarde deserves more respect!

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

Problem: THis list says kyogre is not as powerful as bidoof, victini, groudon, etc. The primal form has a base stat total of 770 and is immune to fire type attacks

People don't know what there talking about! He should be number 1!

Come on! Give Kyogre (normal, not primal Kyogre) a break!

Primal Kroger has the advantage to primal groudon because primal groudon is a ground and fire type

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

I love Entei. Here's a little story. So I was playing​ Project: Pokemon on ROBLOX. Back then, I hadn't even beaten the first gym, and somehow, I found an Entei out of nowhere! That's why I love Entei.

Entei is by far the strongest Pokemon, between his speed, and him being the strongest fire-type Pokemon.

Entei is cool but I don't think it is too strong.

I bet entei can kill or faint most legendery's with fire blast' flamethrower' or eruption.

24 Suicune Suicune Suicune is a legendary Pokemon that’s a pure water type that first appeared in Pokemon gold and silver, and was the cover legendary for crystal. Ho oh revived this Pokemon (along with entei & raikou) when it died when it’s home, the burned tower got destroyed by a fire that was started by a lightning ...read more.

Suicune is an amazing legendary. It looks feminine and I love the way it looks, it's fierce. It's definitely part of the stronger half of the legendaries.

Suicune is the best pokemon ever and I rarely lose battles with it.

I think suicune is just the best out of the beast trio.

Suicune is better than the other 3...

25 Tornadus Tornadus Tornadus, known in Japan as Tornelos, is a Legendary Pokémon species in Nintendo and Game Freak's Pokémon franchise.
