Strongest Legendary Pokemon

The Top Ten
1 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 just better. Arceus is over rated.
I mean, they call that phony deer a god?
Mewtwo can control minds, psychic powers and other cool stuff that Arceus can't. Also
Mewtwo has forms and Arceus dose not.
Mega Mewtwo stats are 780. While Arceus is only 720. Mewtwo has weakness, too. I do
not like Pokemon who are to powerful, like Arceus. Mewtwo is a salamander with psychic powers. Mewtwo is more powerful
in the games than anima. But anima lies.
pikachu beats Onix in anima which is weird.
Long story short,
MEWTWO IS THE BEST!

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!

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

Those of you who think mew can learn every moves, you are wrong. There is just one, mightymove it can't learn. The move is so powerful it can take down arceus with a single hit. It can also dominate the universe! The move's name is...

Splash! It is so powerful using it will do nothing because the game program can't handle something THAT big. It will inflict an infinite amount of damage in real life (lenny).

The best pokemon of all. Has the DNA of every pokemon. Was the pokemon that actually defeated Mewtwo. Can learn any move unlike every other pokemon. Extremely hard to obtain in games. Not only is a legendary pokemon, but also a mythical pokemon. Also, looks cute and adorable; in other words, has the whole package.

Mew is a really cute pokemon who helped CREATE Mewtwo I think it is not fair when Mewtwo is just really a replica. And on the pokemon movie Mewtwo strikes back they had the same power levels. It is also really powerful even if it is really cute too.

In game stats are solid. but by the anime he is the beginning of the entire Pokemon universe he is basically a god who used itself to create everything. being able to transform into any Pokemon including legendaries. This means he can be any Pokemon at will. I bet he could travel through time if he wanted to. He is the god of the world and god trumps legendary.

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

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

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.

Dragon/Steel God

Having neutral damage to fairies
High special attack
Resist/Immune to some types
It's really COOL

Some cool guy: Arceus is the best

Me: The god of time is the best,DUDE!

5 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

6 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 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!

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.

7 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 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.

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.

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.

8 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.

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

I think that hoopa should be in the top 5. Hoopa can bring out more strong Pokemon to help her/him out. Hoopa is like unstoppable when it reveals it's unbound form. To me, hoopa should be like, one of the best Pokemon there is.

Dud, Get to the point. When its unbound it could control any pokemon, and if u don't belive me, watch hoopa and the clash of ages. The only pokemon that might stand against it is mew, because it has the same power. But hoopa could just send it to another universe.

Hoopa can summon anything and if it summons any pokemon, it is in its control. Hyperspace hole with a cool dark pulse and it can deflect, teleport any attack. it should be in top
5

Shouldn't hoopa be one of the top five? Because if you have seen hoopa and the clash of ages hoopa can summon any pokemon from its rings and it helps it, so any legendary Pokémon it summons is its slave.

10 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!

The Contenders
11 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.

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

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

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

The pokemon of pure destruction. My first and favorite legendary.

12 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.

I don't get why Xerneas doesn't have a higher rank! Once this thing sets up with Geomancy, it destroys EVERYTHING. This is the set I use on my Xerneas.

Xerneas @ Power Herb
Timid/Modest Nature
EVs: 252 Sp Atk/ 128 HP/ 128 Spd
IVs: 0 Atk
-Geomancy
-Moonblast
-HP Ground
-Flash Cannon

Power Herb lets Geomancy complete in one turn. Moonblast is STAB. HP ground covers both steel and poison, Xerneas's only weaknesses. Flash Cannon covers other fairies.

So there you have it. My OP Xerneas. Upvote Xerneas, it is so much better than Arceus!

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

13 Mega Rayquaza

Why in the world is it lower than Rayquaza?
It should at least be between 10 and 1. I have the Pokemon and its hp is 230 which is 20 more than my Mega Mew two ex!

My friend ,I Noel S Varghese is the one who modified Ken Sugimori's Rayquaza and modified it into the ferocious Mega rayquaza.So it will always be my favourite.

Why the hell is it lower than rayquaza?! Also it has a base stat total of 780! that's higher than arceus! Only mega mewtwo can compare! Where is mega mewtwo anyway?!?!?

Don't get why this is part of "The Newcomers" even though people are saying Mew is good because of the movie. It's not even Ubers.

14 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.

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.

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

Lamest legendary ever

15 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

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

1. Arceus: as much as I think Arceus is WAY OVERRATED it deserves #1 spot
2. Rayquaza: As much as I think Mewtwo is #1, in a fight rayquaza mops the floor with Mewtwo
3. Mewtwo: It is OP
4. Darkrai: Darkrai can torment pokemon in a way like none other and can DOMINATE with move Dark Void in a 1v1 it can beat any pokemon really if it goes 1st.

1. arceus- as much as I like mewtwo, arceus is better
2. mewtwo- he has two dope mega evolutions and can wreck any non godly pokemon
3. darkrai- darkrai is my favourite pokemon. he could have beaten dialga and palkia in rise of darkrai by making them sleep then beating the up but he didn't. if he could take on dialga and palkia, he could add giratina to his death list easily.
4. giratina, dialga and palkia- the strength goes in the written order. (giratina number 1, dialga no.2, palkia no.3)
5. rayquaza and groudon and kyogre- the three are really strong and in primal form, they could be in rank three but primal is way too op so I will rate them normally

Umm if you didn't know DARK VOID 50 percent chance of hitting puts your whole team to sleep just go to sleep and giv me the w already.Did I not mention he has good moves too lv 100 darkrai spamming night shade? yea that doesn't sound beatable with dark void

Darkrai in my opinion is the strongest Pokemon (stronger than arceus) because in the movie "The Rise Of Darkrai" he could've easily wrecked dialga and palkia but he didn't do it because dialga and palkia could collide. Besides he protected a city full of people that are mean to him. That's just plain strong.

17 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.

Arceus is the GOD of pokemon in the pokemon universe and giratina, palkia and dialga are strongest of their worlds. So after them kyrum will come and should be placed above mewtwo because he is the strongest dragon type and has the ability to absorb power from reshiram and zekrom which makes him strongest of earth. Only after kyrum, Mewtwo will come.. So the order will be somewhat like this.
1. Arceus
2. Giratina
3. Dialga
4. Palkia
5. Kyrum
6. Mewtwo
7. Reshiram
8. Zekrom
9. Xeneres (pokemon x)
10. Yuvatal (pokemon y)

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.

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

18 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.

19 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

20 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.

I'm probaly one of the few people that plays competitivly & knows groudon is broken unless you count mega rayquaza here is real list ya fools
1. groudon primal
2. necrozma dusk mane
3. xerneas
4, zygarde
5. marshadow
6. yveltal
7. lunala
8. arceus
9 kyogre - primal
10. ho -oh
so yeah believe the anime but this is stats

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

The Pokédex states that this Pokémon brings victory. It is said that Trainers with Victini always win, regardless of the type of encounter.
It creates an unlimited supply of energy inside its body

Considering that it has infinite energy and always wins (hence the name Victory Pokemon) I think it is safe to say it is the strongest.

Victini is considered the embodiment of victory. It is said that a Trainer with a Victini will win anything no matter what.

He wins every battle man! but... I don't know the resuts of arceus vs victini...

It's just so tiny!

22 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.

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

Well, true it can make Arceus disapear so yeah, and besides Jirachi is such a cute Pokemon!

Don't F... K with this little star

Come on, people! Vote for Jirachi! It has doom desire and plenty of other moves. It can also grant wishes and all. Jirachi is also cute, look at its X and Y sprite. Please vote for Jirachi

24 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

25 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

Moltres is a Pokemon I would say to be very handy to Pokemon that
Are weak to fire
