Top 10 Strongest Pokemon

The Top Ten
1 Arceus Arceus is a legendary Pokémon from the Pokémon series. It first appeared in the 18th Pokémon movie alongside other Legendary Pokémon. In the Pokémon universe, Arceus is widely known as "The Original One", as it's believed to be the creator of the entire pokemon universe. According to mythology, Arceus is said to emerge from an egg that existed before the universe.

It's justified to be the strongest of all pokemon because it created the rest of them. Also those shards are really helpful and kickass

I don't believe that arceus is number 1. I thought arceus would be third or second. He is the strongest sayian in history
Without him no one can get destroyed. He has more than thousand forms.

Arceus the god pokemon with his signature move Judgment. Excluding megas, he has the highest stat total. When the creation trio were fighting Arceus (in the movie Pokemon: Arceus and the Jewel of life), they can't lay a finger on him! Even with Dialga in the battle, the tables won't turn! He also destroyed a giant meteoroid (he got hurt just because he crashed into it but he could've used dragon pulse and Judgment in fighting type)! He is the strongest pokemon ever! The only thing that sucks was his voice acting; Mewtwo's voice actor in the first movie was way better.

Arcues is the god of Pokemon, it has immunity to all attacks. Even if we know that dragon type move cast to dragon type Pokemon is effective, Arceus is immune. I have seen it on Arceus and the Jewel of Life movie. Dialga, Palkia and Arceus fought. Before Giratina took place, Dialga and Palkia tried to beat Arceus, Palkia used dragon type attack but Arceus transformed to draco-Arceus (Violet color) and took no damage by the attack! I was so amazed! And then Giratina took place because the other two Pokemon were down, and even if Arceus gave Giratina almost the same power with it to rule the other dimension, Arcues stood still and we know that ghost attack cannot harm normal type Pokemon - Arcues!

2 Mewtwo Mewtwo is a psychic-type Legendary Pokémon from Nintendo and Game Freak's Pokémon media franchise. Designed by Ken Sugimori, it made its first appearance in the games Pokémon Red and Blue. It was created by Dr. Fuji using gene splicing in an attempt to clone Mew. In the Pokémon games, it's infamously known as the most powerful Pokémon among all species. Mewtwo is capable of evolving into two forms - Mega Mewtwo X (using Mewtonite X) and Mega Mewtwo Y (using Mewtonite Y)

The most powerful hands down! His physic powers are second to none. Mewtwo cannot be defeated bye any other Pokemon. Despite what anyone said that mew is the only one that can go toe to toe with him is wrong. The reason why is that Mewtwo is simply a level above mew. Theirs only two Pokemon that stands a chance against him and their names are Deoxys for being one that smashed Rayquaza in the movie and has the special power to transform to speed, attack, and deference. And Jirachi, yes that's right I said Jirachi, for his wish ability to either make him the powerful or Mewtwo the most weakest of all Pokemon. And it's a steel and physic type to make a vary difficult opponent.

Yeah Mewtwo is great and all, but he ain't the most powerful. How can a Mewtwo beat the creator of everything (AKA Arceus)? The one that knows everything? The one that has quite literally all the power in the world? Answer is he can't, this is just weird how some people think some very powerful characters can beat or even kill immortal, all powerful, creators of the universe, I really don't get it. People have to start using their brain more, and I don't mean that as an insult, some people have their bias towards things as well as an opinion. I'm just saying, logically Arceus is far above all other Pokemon.

Mewtwo is by far better than arceus. First off, it was known for a long time as the Best Pokemon in the game. Take into consideration all generations, not just current. Psychic type was to gen one as dragon was to gens 2-5. It had the highest stat total in the game for a decent time too. Yes, arceus has a better stay total. However, all of its stats have base 120. While that's pretty good, it's not great. Plenty of competitive and normal Pokemon have a higher base stat than it. You can build it however you want, in a way that fits your team, but in reality, it's not the best at filling that role, as it stats aren't the best. Mewtwo on the other hand, it very strong. It can't sort of fill any role like arceus, but it is the best at what it does. Special attacking sweeper. It can learn a variety of moves that it can utilize better than arceus could. Give it a life orb, then laugh as opponents try to counter it. Overall, both are very strong. Mewtwo wins in my books because it can really ...more

Mewtwo is the best
Mewtwo is number one always. He has awesome stats. He can learn basically any move. When I go up against the elite four I can use him and only him I do not have to use any potion either because all of hits hits are ko's

3 Rayquaza Rayquaza (pronounced "ray-quay-zah") is a Dragon/Flying type Legendary Pokémon species in Nintendo and Game Freak's Pokémon franchise. It serves as the mascot in the game Pokémon Emerald. Rayquaza can mega evolve into Mega Rayquaza provided that it does not have a Z-Crystal and it knows the move "Dragon Ascent". According to the Pokédex, it lives in the ozone layer, and frequently stops battles with Kyogre and Groudon, two other Legendaries.

With base stats of 105/180/100/180/100/115 in its mega evolved form, it has the highest total base stat number of 780. Not only are these stats extremely well rounded on the defensive side, it's an offensive powerhouse that can also hold any other item like a life orb for example. It also has the Delta Stream ability which completely negates all fly type weaknesses, meaning it's only weak to ice (2x), dragon, and fairy all while keeping the flying type resistances.

The base stats of Mega Rayquaza already make it a top tier Pokemon. The fact that it can hold any other item and also has the Delta Stream ability pushes it to the top in my opinion.

Technically Mega Rayquaza IS the strongest Pokemon with base stats (tied with Mewtwo's mega forms) at a total of 780! That's tons compared to most Pokemon. It's too OP that it was banned from the banned tier from Smogon. The ONLY Pokemon in the Anything Goes tier only. Mega Rayquaza is a beast in the competitive point of view. It has an ability that cancels out all flying type weaknesses (Ice, rock and electric), it doesn't need a mega stone to mega evolve, so it can hold an item AND be mega, it has access to dragon ascent, which is one of the most powerful moves in the game. Rayquaza can be physical, or special, it has a large move pool, and like I said, amazing stats. It may not be my all time favourite Pokemon, but it is the strongest by stats, mega, moves, and ability. Tiers? More like. Tears.

In my opinion, this Pokemon is so much better than Arceus, not only because it has more stat total than Arceus when mega evolved but also because this Pokemon can mega evolve without a mega stone, which means it can hold any items while in it's mega form like Life Orb, unlike the other mega Pokemon which needs mega stone. Plus, Rayquaza also has Delta Stream as it's mega form's ability which can remove Rayquaza's flying typing's weakness to Rock and Ice. Further more, Arceus is also placed in Anything Goes tier for Pokemon Showdown, all of the reasons are from what I just mention, though, Pokemon Showdown has different battle system than normal Pokemon games does but it's still worth mentioning to be honest. But this is just my opinion, I just wanna tell you guys the reason why this Pokemon is so much better than Arceus, so, I hope you respect my opinion.

This thing is so powerful it got banned from Ubers to Anything Goes. Rayquaza is currently the ONLY Pokemon in Anything Goes. Monstrous 180 attacking stats are amazing. 115 speed isn't too shabby either, and Dragon Ascent can be spammed over and over again without the attack drop of Draco Meteor. A best of 780 is great, and moves like Fire Blast combat its weakness to Ice-type moves. Swords Dance raises its attack to fearsome levels, and Extreme Speed knocks out weaker opponents without most of them getting a chance to attack, because Extreme Speed is a priority move. With a Choice Band and 252 Attack EVs, it can 2HKO Lugia. This thing is amazing.

4 Mew Mew is a Psychic-type Mythical Pokémon created by Nintendo's and Game Freak's Pokémon media franchise. Designed by Satoshi Tajiri, it was introduced in Pokémon Red and Blue. Mew is capable of learning every move in the games (except signature moves of certain Pokémon), and can shapeshift into other Pokémon species.

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.

Now, Mew not be as strong in move as others, like Mega Shadow Mewtwo X, (Who's Abysmal Genesis does 300 damage) but is a shapeshifter and guess what , I don't see any harm in turning into a really, really good Pokemon. Have you thought about that, non-mew voters?

Mew is the "origin" of Pokemon It's Pokemon entries state that it possesses the DNA of all Pokemon. It can learn any move which would allow it to bypass resistances, making Arceus's Multi-type virtually useless since mew can change its attack types as Arceus changes its own type. Can transform into any Pokemon including other legendaries, which would allow it to change its resistances and weaknesses whenever needed as well as acquire stats and abilities that would better benefit it in any given situation. In the first Pokemon movie it is seen fighting head to head with Mewtwo without losing any ground, and in this instance he was fighting only using Psychic attacks, and without the need for transformation. Not to mention Mewtwo was created from Mew's DNA.

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

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.

Giratina was a total BEAST. It knows Destiny Bond! So when he/she/it (I'll call it he by the way) is defeated, the opponent is dead too! Giratina could literally beat anyone. Shadow Force is like a 10x stronger move than Phantom Force, and it can break through all protections! It should be number two or one because, um, Arceus is bit way too strong? Ok, wait. Did you guys realize something terribly good about Giratina. Pikachu, the "BIG BOSS POKEMON" in the anime used Thunderbolt on Giratina and nothing happens. In Arceus and the jewel of life Arceus was screaming in pain and yelling. So Giratina could literally beat Arceus too by simply stealing one of Arceus's plate by Shadow Forcing behind Arceus and take one plate while Arceus isn't paying attention. Oh, so Giratina CAN beat Arceus!

First of all, I believe Giratina has a great design overall. It has two forms, along with its own little pocket dimension, giving it an interesting background. As one of the 5 first Pokemon, it has control over antimatter, albeit granted this role by Arceus. It also has resistances granted to it by its Dragon and Ghost types. Its signature move, Shadow Strike, allows it to strike right throw your Protect, Spiky Shield, King's Shield, or whatever other protection you have. This is what makes Giratina my favorite Pokemon.

A lot of you guys sound ike you're derping, especially the guy who wrote about Kyurem and the people who voted for Charizard. Personally, I believe Arecus is the strongest Pokemon, and that Giratina, Dialga, and Palkia, also known as his FIRST creations and the beings of time, space, and antimatter themselves, should be tied for second, and then maybe Mewtwo. Personally, I've always found Giratina to be slightly stronger than his brethren due to his ability to change forms, but that's my opinion. Anyway, thanks for support and you guys who voted for f#king MEW and CHARIZARD need to shut up and stop smoking on your nostalgia.

Dragon Pokemons are least affected by water fire and grass moves therefore have the highest resistance. Giratina boasts high stats and is a ghost Pokemon granting immunity to all physical attacks. It can learn many Pokemon move types it can use for its advantage. Come on Dragons are cool cause most special attacks wont budge. Ghost types are immune to physical damage. But them together and that's the ultimate Pokemon!

6 Lugia Lugia, known in Japan as ルギア (Rugia), is a Legendary Pokémon species in Nintendo and Game Freak's Pokémon franchise. First introduced in Generation II, it's the mascot of the game Pokémon Silver. It serves as the master of the legendary birds trio, and is part of the tower tuo along with Ho-Oh.

Lugia is OP... That's all I have to say. But I will say more! In the Anime Movie with Hoopa Lugia was holding out against a Demon Legendary and Lugia could have fought longer if Demon Hoopa didn't send him Away. Also in the Pokemon Movie 2000 Lugia was said to be the King of the Legendary Birds. He also has the Best Entrance ever! Bursting out of a Whirlpool! I don't See Kyogre doing that! Also he has his own Theme Song! Does Darkrai or Mewtwo have a Theme Song? I don't Think So! (Not entirely Sure on that...)

Lugia is a immense, draconian Pokemon with two giant wings which has a lot of power.
Lugia has the ability to pressure, which causes the opposing Pokemon to double its pp usage in battles. It is known as the guardian of seas, Lugia is tremendously intelligent and is very gentle with the life around it, despite his colossal size.
Due to the fact it blow away houses in one single flap of its wings it lies at the bottom of the sea. It is the guardian so it can talk like human beings it's a really good advantage

As seen in the pokemon movie the power of one, this pokemon can talk like meowth, cool right?! It's so powerful that he lies in the bottom of the ocean, one flap of its wings can cause a 40 day storm, one of its signature move is aeroblast, its just huffin air and blasting it!

Lugia is better than charizard.. Why did you put this kind of legendary Pokemon after that fire flying Pokemon charizard? It's not fair.. We all know that he is one of the powerful Pokemon cease he rule the sea.. He is like the Poseidon of the Greek mythology.. You don't even know what Lugia can do.. He can learn psychic and flying and water moves.. Lugia is the best Pokemon for me

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

Dialga with his adamant orb and roar of time it can beat any pokemon in one move, Dragon Type Dragon Type Move Adamant Orb already 2.0 damage and the move is already ridiculously strong with 150 power. Also without this move Flash Cannon, Aura Sphere, and Earth Power are more than enough to take down anything with Dialga's Insane special attack.

My 2nd favorite Pokemon is the ruler of time. Ever since he appeared on The Rise Of Darkrai, I knew what Dialga was capable of, even though I was 11. But when you control time, it means you have the ability to go to the past, future, and can even stop time meaning you can freeze your opponent. I love Palkia and all but Dialga nearly killed him as he did with Darkrai. His Roar Of Time and Draco Meteor dominates.

Dialga and Palkia are both great both actually and competitively, but I give the slight edge to Dialga.
1. One of 2 Dragons (as far as I know) that resists Fairy (The other is Dragalge, who is not as good).
2. Roar of Time/Flash Cannon + Adamant Orb = Lots of Damage.
3. Give Dialga an air balloon, and it is only weak to fighting, and nothing else.
4. Dialga overall has very good moves, and can cover a variety of types.
5. He looks great, so of course he is good.
Overall, Dialga is a very good pokemon, and I hope that in the Sinnoh remakes, Primal Dialga becomes part of the main series games, because in Mystery Dungeon, he was a god.

Dialga is just an amazing Pokemon. With a duel typing to the 2 types with the most resistances (steel and dragon), dialga can tank most Pokemon with the typing. Add that to its great defense and sp. defense and he can be a tank. Also with a great move pool such as aura sphere, flash cannon, and dragon claw. And although it is not the best move competitively, Roar of Time is the coolest looking move in any Pokemon game. No wonder everyone loves this Temporal legendary.

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

Let's look at a REAL powerhouse:

A base 170 special attack and access to the most powerful dragon type move (that's practical) in draco meteor. Combined with choice specs this is one of the most powerful attacks in the game. The top 10 can't brag abou that. You also have access to ice beam and fusion flare to give even more options to shread your precious Arceus. (being god doesn't mean anything. Competitive battling wouldn't exist if you're right about his power). Oh, and a good base 120 attack. Kyurem-B can't brag an ice type move on it's main stat, attack. For real, do research before you vote on Pokemon that don't deserve it. (looking at you, charizard)

1: 700 best. Second to only Arceus, Mega Mewtwo, and Mega Rayquaza.

2: Attack and Special Attack (depending on whether fused with Reshiram or Zekrom) shoots through the roof. Ties up Rayray and Mewtwo in the higher stat.

3: What happens if you fuse Kyurem with *both* Reshiram and Zekrom? Enjoy your 900 best cannon that is, at most, forced to hold DNA Splicers or something.

4: Kyurem Origin, as above. Arceus created Sinnoh? Kyurem created Unova. Also, space and time are nothing compared to all of yin and yang.

Even in the movie it says this is the most powerful pokemon of all time this should be first! It is the most powerful because it is kinda like a combination of the black and white in pokemon black & white! This should be first! It's the strongest pokemon and it actual says so in the movie. Maybe mew and mew 2 might be stronger but this is definitely pretty strong and stronger than reshiram or zekrom!

Pretty great legendary if you ask me. Only weaknesses are fighting, rock, steel, dragon and fairy. Dragon can be ruled out in this one though. Base stats in normal form is 660, pretty good, and gets upped by 40 in Black or White forms. Moveset is overall good, with a few moves over 100 in power, so I think Kyurem is pretty dope.

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

I call Palkia "King Of The Sea" alongside Carracosta and Kyogre. Seriously, I thought it's psychic type! Look at it's pink body and purple stripes! Basically it's the coolest thing ever. (It's one of the creation trio! Arceus worked with the creation trio as well as the lake guardians to create the Pokémon world, so that means if Palkia is not here the world would have no space! Dialga brings time, Uxie brings knowledge, Azelf or Mesprit brings emotion and willpower. So basically that means Palkia is also the creator or the Pokémon world. Just too awesome, dudes) Arceus is truly strong, but Palkia is maybe as strong as Arceus(I think).

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.

Palkia can distort space and within a distorted space time can't even flow nor there is any stability with any Pokemon, it even contained Arceus in its distorted space and prevented his escape for a while... so, accordingly should be in one of top 5, not on basis of game mechanics but on Pokemon world reality...

Palkia is totally awesome! It's like the first Pokemon in a movie to actually nearly destroy the whole main town. Plus it's the guardian of space which makes it EPIC!

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

You know why I love Darkrai?
Not because he's awesome-which he is-but because of his role in the 10th movie.

I was injured, alone and unloved, when a young girl, Alicia was falling from a cliff. Darkrai saved it.
Then he befriended Alicia's descendants. Its one real friend, however, was about to die.
Palkia and Dialga battle, surrounded the whole city in a mystic white veil, where if anyone runs into it, they return to the city.
As the battle continues, Darkrai is suspected, and receives gigantic hate from everyone except Ash, his companions, and his one friend.
The city starts to melt away as the battle commences.
He is determined to save his one friend ever, but when he gets hit by Roar of Time and special rend, he sacrifices himself for the city.
This proves that any being can have a soul, and it makes me want to cry that a being so hated, would save everyone.

Please. Lets have darkrai from number 10 to number 1.

My darkrai absolutely kicks butt. I use dark void and dream eater if they wake up and do some damage restart the cycle and because of dream eater I'm at full health. His ability which slowly drains there health is great incase you can't attack. It's a great Pokemon it's only flaw are Pokemon with insomnia, electric terrain or being one shot which I highly doubt unless the opponent is fighting of fairy

Darkrai should be at least 5th because of its ability to put somebody asleep and give them horrible nightmares, in this time Darkrai can use shadow ball or something. I think Lugia should be 10 because its only abilities are to breathe water, and cause hurricanes when Darkrai is basically Freddy Krueger.

Honestly even in game he can beat the top pokemon on this list. I took out my friends whole team with just darkrai (he used arceus, keldeo, reshiram and other legendaries). because my darkrai has timid nature he goes first like all the time so I just put them all to sleep with dark void and used calm mind heaps and just swept his whole team with dark pulse.

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

It can have the highest stat in almost every category, and each form allows it to alter said stats to it's advantage. In the Pokemon universe, I would say that Deoxys is most likely the strongest ever discovered. While Mewtwo was created from Mew by man, and Mew created Pokemon on Earth so to speak, Deoxys evolved from an extraterrestrial organism and found it's way to Earth. Arceus even got sealed up in some liquid metal goop in the movie and couldn't do anything. If anything, the only Pokemon that could stand up to Deoxys in matters of stat balance would be Mewtwo and Mew in the Pokemon universe. All other Pokemon would be wise to fear a misunderstood Deoxys, since that was the case in Destiny Deoxys.. and looked what happened to Rayquaza there. No questions asked, Deoxys is the most powerful at it's maximum potential. I'd assume that would be how to properly rate these. When they are at their best.

Deoxys in attack forme possesses the highest Attack and Special Attack the Pokemon Universe. Deoxys in defense form posesses the highest Defense and Special Defense in the Pokemon Universe. Deoxys in Speed Forme possesses the highest Speed in the Pokemon Universe. Even in Normal Forme it has blistering speed coupled with insane attack and Special Attack.
It has a huge movepool with access to the devastating Psycho Boost that destroys almost every Pokemon, and hit with unparalleled power with other insane moves with impeccable type coverage such as Ice Beam, Thunder, Thunderbolt, Dark Pulse, Shadow Ball, Superpower and Extremespeed. Has been shown to have incredible regenerative abilities, reflected in its ability to instantly recover off damage.

Deoxys (in my opinion) is the strongest Pokemon after Arceus, as it's one of the fastest (I think is the fastest) Pokemon in speed form and it's attack and special attack are super high in attack form. Sure it has bad defense in the game, but in the movie and manga it can regenerate and create clones of itself. In the manga, Deoxys was crushing Mewtwo, but Mewtwo got lucky. (Read if u don't believe me) Have I mentioned that Deoxys came from outer space! Deoxys should definitely be in the top 5 of strongest Pokemon. And in the games, just give Deoxys a focus sash in attack form and it will pretty much be able to down any Pokemon for sure. Deoxys was also trashing Rayquaza, but Rayquaza got lucky.

Deoxys is good (in my opinion) because... Look at all those forms! All of the 3 forms are Defense, Attack and... EVEN SPEED! What a lovely Pokemon to make... Also, Deoxys is also better than Rayquaza. What a shock! Deoxys can beat Mewtwo so Deoxys is very good. Deoxys is actually good in movies and cards, but when you see it in the video games he's not really good, so that's a big spoiler alert. Sorry, Rayquazza and Mewtwo... You don't stand a chance when Deoxys comes! (haha deoxys)

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

OH MY GOSH. Those of you who didn't vote for this guy CLEARLY haven't faced its Primal form. Primal Groudon is a TOTAL BEAST. It gains the Fire type, which seems okay, as it makes it even weaker to Water-type moves, but then you see its ability: Desolate Land. It turns the sunlight extremely harsh, so not only does it boost the power of Fire-type moves, but it completely nullifies the effect of all Water-type moves. Simply put, this thing is COMPLETELY UNSTOPPABLE. People say Mega Rayquaza is OP, but I can deal with that one. What I can't deal with is THIS big red monster.

Groudoun has 3 weaknesses: water, ice, grass. But now he has a red orb, which can evaporate water so water is no longer a problem. He turns to fire type when he uses the orb so bye bye ice and grass. But sadly he gains a new weakness which is ground. So he loses 3 weaknesses but in return for gaining 1 weakness. Do the math people 3-1=2 the orb gets rid of 2 weaknesses for him. If he doesn't have the orb, then he screwed

Groudon's weaknesses are water, ice and grass. Drought (Groudon's ability that makes the sun shine) lowers water's effectiveness and ups fire's (which is super effective against ice and grass). Kyogre's ability makes thunder have a 100% hit chance. Kyogre has nothing on Groudon.

Primal Groudon is the most effective Pokemon I've ever played with and has only one weakness, ground. If he's primal, water moves evaporate which makes them essentially useless, and grass and ice have no chance so that only leaves ground. The only Pokemon he is arguably better is Primal Kyogre. But even then, he is still the best.

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

Zekrom makes an amazing mixed sweeper because of how great the stats are mixed. He can take out the occasional Ho-oh that a trainer sends out, and with one simple Dragon Dance it is an extremely fast and powerful sweeper that can wipe out almost everything it sees. I've even seen it sweep a dragon-type Arceus in one hit without any stat boosts. These things are monsters.

Zekrom destroys Reshiram even though Reshiram has better typing fire/dragon. but Reshiram in my opinion was disappointing first of all Zekrom has Way better design than Reshiram Blue electricity now that is cool besides Reshiram has that normal fire just like any other fire type pokemon but most electric pokemon has yellow electricity. Zekrom should at least be on no 10 spot.

Zekrom has outstanding attack! Its moves fusion bolt and bolt strike can hurt a Pokemon badly!

Beast! Fusion bolt can destroy a ground type Pokemon at level 75! He is boss. Sorry if you like reshiram but fire types can't compare to zekrom. He. Is. The. Best. Pokemon. Only ties to me with Greninja. I love my Greninja named squishy.

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

No only can Ditto transform into any POKEMON it wants to, it can transform into any THING it wants to. Aka, it could become your bed, your house, your town/city, your country, the world, the solar system, the galaxy, the UNIVERSE. A group of Ditto could replace your friends and family. A Ditto could replace you. Every time you walk anywhere, that rock? It's a Ditto. That stick? It's a Ditto. That grain of sand? That speck of dirt? That speck of dust? Dittos. You are walking on a Ditto. You are looking at Dittos. YOU ARE A DITTO.

Not convinced? A Ditto could transform into a black hole, killing everything. If that's not powerful, I don't know what is.

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 and Mewtwo shouldn't be considered Pokemon. They were both created. Both of them were supposed to be Mew. One turned into Mewtwo and the other turned into Ditto. My point is that they were created and Pokemon are not created by man. Some people claim that they saw Pokemon, but usually it's a cat with yellow paint with long fake Pikachu ears. That little costume was made by a person and it is not a real Pokemon. Well I'm not sure if this is true, but this is just my little theory.

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

15 Dragonite Dragonite, known in Japan as Kairyu, is a Pokémon species in Nintendo and Game Freak's Pokémon franchise.

Nobody here realizes it because they are all voting for legendaries, but look at this thing's stats, that beat out approx. 65-70% of the legendaries, and the movepool that this thing prides, and tell me that Dragonite shouldn't be on the list. He has high attack and sp. attack that trump most Pokemon in the series, and enough defense to take almost anything but a good blizzard or ice beam. His speed isn't high, but he doesn't need it unless he's up against a good mamoswine or other powerful ice types. While this Pokemon is beaten by Mewtwo, Mew, and Arceus, this thing deserves at least 6th or 7th place.

Seriously. You guys, dragonite had the highest stats besides legendaries and megas for a long time. Slaking may have more stats, but slaking has truant which is the most useless ability ever. He is a dragon type, and can learn tons of extremely powerful moves, has insanely high stats. He is also the signature pokemon of the coolest trainer, lance.

Want a Pokemon with a wide movepool with different types and moves, yet still a lot of moves for STAB? Want a Pokemon that has incredibly good stats and great abilities? Want a Pokemon that isn't used by other people? Use Dragonite. The only bad thing about it is that it might take a lot of time to train, but honestly, it is definitely worth it.

Yeah, he's a great Pokemon. I trained one up with a perfect nature myself! He's cute and powerful. I mean look at that attack stat. MONSTROUS! However, he, like Garchomp, Rayquaza, Salamance, Altaria, Flygon, and I'm pretty sure many more die too easily to and Ice Beam from pretty much anything.

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

He has monster attack, which is good in it's case. It's signature move has about 150 base power with STAB, and a 50% burn chance, and even get's access to Sky Attack, a 140 base power move with flying STAB. It actually has decent defense! Sadly, it, like many other fellow fire- flying types, suffers a huge impact from Stealth Rock and rock attacks. Sorry Charizard, Moltres, Talonflame, and Ho- Oh! But the weird part is, in my Heartgold game, I brought in my Ho- Oh in on an incoming Machamp, not thinking of coverage for flying types. I used Fly, not knowing about No Guard, and it used Rock Slide on me. I thought I screwed up, but then, IT SURVIVED THE HIT! Then, I beat the league. THANKS HO- OH!

So many people seem to prefer Lugia over Ho-Oh, but I must disagree.
You see, Ho-Oh has the power to revive people and Pokémon- the Legendary Beasts that burned to death in its tower? Ho-Oh revived them with its sacred power.

Some people may laugh and call it a 'flaming Turkey', but in my opinion, a flaming Turkey > a greasy seagull with man hands.

Oh, and did I mention it brings good luck, too? You don't see many other 'mon doing that genuinely.

Ho-Oh and Lugia are 2 equally powerful pokemon, with unimaginable power. Ho-Oh and Lugia can face an army of Dittos, Mews, Mewtwos, Arceus, and win. The Tower Duo is arguably the most powerful group of pokemon. Ho-Oh's fire power and Lugia's Psychic abilities make for a powerful, and pretty much indomitable, combo.

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!

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

Reshiram NEEDS to be at least no.11 or no.10 on this list, just because Zekrom looks cooler doesn't mean he's any stronger. I believe that Reshiram looks cooler and is just as strong. Based on stats, they both have a stat total of 680. Both are average on speed and good with everything else, meaning they're pretty much the exact same.

Did anyone read my last comment about Reshiram? I said that in the pokedex that reshiram has the power to inflame the world with fire! All it says about Zekrom is that its tail is just a generator. How cool is Zekrom now? Reshiram should be higher ranked than a tail generator Pokemon. Please, please, please vote for Reshiram! -Spino_Fan#1

Reshiram should at least be next or close to Zekrom, maybe even higher because it has more special attack. It deserves a place in the top 10.

In the legend Reshiram is equally as strong as Zekrom so why is it so much lower?

18 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 comes to an end, it releases all of its life energy to every living thing nearby before transforming into a tree to sleep for 1,000 years. Its signature move, Geomancy, takes a turn to charge, but raises its Special Attack, Special Defense, and Speed. A popular moveset is a Geomancy set with Power Herb as the holding item.

OMG why is it so low in this? the people who did not vote it are clearly dumn! it is awesome and I say it deserves more respect I think it should be at least in the top5.

Xerneas is pretty OP with its' ability Fairy Aura, which boosts Fairy type moves, like the popular and powerful Moonblast, and if you give it a Power Herb, and use Geomancy, it'll boost its' Speed, Special Attack and Special Defense. It will, no joke, DECIMATE opponents. It'll also take not as much damage due to its' enhanced Special Defense, which I think is really neat.

I really like this Pokemon, and it's pretty good competitively, so it's your man (well, it's genderless, but whatever ) in a pinch.

Do you people even play Pokemon? It clearly says STRONGEST, not coolest. Stuff like Florges and Goodra are WAY stronger than Charizard (Florges has base stat totals of 552, while Charizard has 534). So yes, flowers and giant pseudo-legendary goo dinasaurs are stronger than fire-breathing dragons. And a rainbow deer is over 3 times better than an ugly fire breathing dragon who faints when anything uses a rock move.

Actually, Xerneas is incredible. With its fairy aura + Moonblast, almost all Pokemon can be finished off in 2 moves. Xerneas is a great go-to Pokemon. Especially if you don't know what Pokemon is up next, it can learn moves that will be effective against all types.

19 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 all the life energy of every living thing around it before transforming into a cocoon to sleep for 1,000 years. Its signature move, Oblivion Wing, is a flying type move the damages the opponent and heals Yveltal by 75% of the damage

Come on! Xerneas is definitely the WEAKEST POKEMON IN THE UNIVERSE. My least favorite Pokémon is Xerneas and my favorite is Yveltal. Anime just think of it like, "Oh, it represents destruction, death, and villains. It is dark type, so it's a bad guy! " How dare they think that! Anybody that says that would get slain by Yveltal's oblivion wing! Yveltal is way stronger than idiotic Xerneas. Reasons: 1) Yveltal even looks cooler 2) Bigger and stronger 3) Two types vs one type 4) Better moves like Double Team. Imagine sixteen Yveltals verses one Xerneas 5) Knows Disable. Disable is an attack that stops the opponent from attacking for so many turns without having a secondary effect. 6) (I like this one the most) Xerneas gives life, Yveltal gives death. So when they're battling, Xerneas can only give Yveltal more and more life and Yveltal can suck all life outta Xerneas

Probably a good thing it sleeps for five thousand years, the thing does not die! It reaches the end, saps the life force out of all the living creatures for at least a mile and goes to sleep! Then its repeat and start over!

Yveltal is a complete savage how many times do you see something blast a death ray at an enemy pokemon?! This pokemon could even beat those mental chuck norris cards everyone is obsessed with.

Technically this is the most dangerous Pokémon because if it dies the world dies or some crap. Anyways, what you need to know it that you don't want to kill him. Or you die
But he will kill you anyways. So this should be like #2 because Arceus will just life plate to block, but I chose this because it kinda is a kamikaze

20 Tyranitar Tyranitar, known in Japan as Bangiras, is a Pokémon species in Nintendo and Game Freak's Pokémon franchise.

Tyranitar is only 21. Well he deserves more than this I mean seriously. Whoever wrote this list should put it higher. Also fun fact if there was a pokemon with every single type it would only be weak to rock. I'm not joking my dudes. Point, Tyranitar!

Seriously! Only 20. Tyranitar is such a beast. he could destroy anything and everything. shut up ditto, I know you can turn into anything but it is anything that tyranitar could crush by lifting only a finger. when he rampages, he knocks down entire mountains and buries rivers, maps also have to be redrawn after that. he is 6 foot 7 inches and he can completely change the landscape. that is the definition of a strong Pokemon right there (kyogre is almost as strong, but I have this unwritten rule about using legendary Pokemon for battling in the games). Tyranitar is and always will be my favorite Pokemon. it will never change mostly because I don't really like gen. 5 or 6 too much

What come on 22? The world is broken cause this guy. This guy. He could destroy mount Everest in a couple of seconds and you put him on 22. Really people. He is my favorite dark type Pokemon and he can destroy Lugia and Mewtwo according to the types. Of course he has weakness but being a pseudo legendary is important!

Tyranitar is the biggest pimp ever... If you put a wall of gash in front of it, it simply slays each one, one at a time, saw it once have a fight with the big man... Aser, and safe to say Aser won, but tyranitar is still beast.

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

Zygarde had 3 forms the 10 percent form, 50 percent form and the 100 percent form. The 10 percent form which looks like a dog and the fifty percent form which looks like the one you see now and lastly, the 100 percent form is the one which looks like a "robot" (but a gigantic one).I love Zygarde. Actually, the Ash-Greninja is also quite powerful.

Zygarde should be much higher on this list. Coil + DD Setup makes it unstoppable bye physical attackers, and hitting like a truck. Complete form has colossal HP, and a decent attack stat. Even without coil, physical attacks are doing about as much for special attack against a Blissey. Complete form doesn't need coil, and is very tanky, while also getting DD. Overall, very strong mon.

Zygarde is a very strong pokemon with a high base stat total and with power construct becomes a very powerful pokemon that can deal high damage.

Should be WAY higher. Zygarde Complete Form is the strongest non-Mega besides Ultra Necrozma and Arceus. At least deserves Top 10!

22 Alakazam Alakazam is a Psychic-type Pokemon that was first introduced in Game Freak's Pokemon Red & Green (Blue for outside of Japan) version. Alakazam is the final evolution of the Abra line. It evolves from Kadabra when traded. In Pokémon Legends: Arceus, it evolves from Kadabra when given a Linking Cord. It is said to have an IQ of 5000 and is a human-like Pokemon. It has high special attack and speed, and is good for Alakazam with its poor defense & mediocre special defense. ...read more.

Large move pool with moves like Focus Blast to combat Dark Types, with mega stats and a move for every Pokemon, it's a crime to say Alakazam isn't in at LEAST the top ten.

I have an Alakazam that I raised from a level 7 Abra on Fire Red to a level 100 on Pokemon Black 2 without any cheats or rare candies and I have yet to lose with it. Easy top 5

With an IQ more than 5000, Alakazam could find a way to potentially destroy the whole world with his full intellectual ability, but yet he only learns four moves. Pokemon logic...

Alakazam is one of the strongest psychic type Pokemon.

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

Ok, anybody who hasn't watched Pokemon Journeys I can understand why you might not vote him, but he is good in it. Although actually maybe not because Pokemon Journeys does make Pokemon more powerful than they actually are, like oddish one hit KO'ing a gigantic magikarp, but I bet he is good, with Mega Evolution and all.

He's one of the best pokemon. He can mega evolve into Mega Gengar. He is definitely the strongest ghost pokemon and he is also poison type. And if you fight with him with normal type or fighting type it won't take him any damage and also when he levitate you won't hurt him with ground type too.
He sure is one strong pokemon and he deserve to be way higher than just 44.

It steals heat from its surroundings. If you feel a sudden chill, it is certain that a Gengar appeared. Sometimes, on a dark night, your shadow thrown by a streetlight will suddenly and startlingly overtake you. It is actually a Gengar running past you, pretending to be your shadow.

He is one of the only 2 Pokemon to stay in smogon' s ( the Pokemon battle university) OU ( overused, but not too over powered - tournament level) tier from the first game to present day. Why? It has 130 special attack, 110 speed, and a giant move pool as well as an op mega evolution (which by the way is banned in uber tier) as well as being so versatile, this guy is awesome.

24 Scizor Scizor, known in Japan as Hassam, is a Pokémon species in Nintendo and Game Freak's Pokémon franchise. It is a Bug - Steel type, and was first introduced in the Gen 2 games (Gold and Silver) in 1999.

What, scizor is just one of the most perfect pokémon ever!
Bug/steel type, only week to fire, can learn almost every high priority move and has Technician! Even with is lost of speed (compared to his pre-evo), he can strike first with a hell of an attack power... And if he uses swords dance, baby he is invincible. Ever tried to use a 1hp scizor with 3 stages of swords dance and the reversal (I think it is this one) attack? And if you had one stage agility to him, he is indestructible. And believe me, with a speed team like ninjask, furret and others with agility, swords dance and baton pass, a technician scizor with, reversal, quick attack, bullet punch and pursuit/swords dance, and with that item that, if he is attack by a fire move (with full hp), it can survive with 1hp, congratulations, you win the game. (best strategy, ninjask/furret/other, one agility and one swords dance, with substitute for support, then baton pass (with substitute), one swords dance with scizor (opponent ...more

130 power, good defense, swords dance basically makes him go apes*it.
It can beat most pokemon thanks to awesome type neutralization.
He has a technician and is probably going to strike first.
I mean at least put him in front of Blastoise and Pikachu.

Scizor is the best! Everybody says Charizard is the best, but scizor could defeat Charizard any day!

Steel= Favorite type to use. Bug= 2nd favorite type. Add that together and you get Foretre- I mean Scizor!

25 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 and printed adaptations of the franchise. Shin-ichiro Miki, the actor who voices James in the original Japanese version of the Pokémon anime, voices Charizard in both the Japanese and English-language versions of the anime. An orange, draconic Pokémon, Charizard is the evolved form of Charmeleon and the final evolution of Charmander. It has two other forms, Mega Charizards X and Y, which are its ...read more.

It's a simple pokemon but its strong. Its true that charizard isn't a rare pokemon. But its cool to know that this pokemon is great even its just a normal pokemon. Its power is really great with quite speed

Answer me this, all of you saying "Charizard is great because I've beaten the elite four easily with it! " Have you even tried it on competitive? It absolutely sucks! You might be saying "but it can learn stuff like Thunder Punch, Earthquake, brick break and more! It can counter anything! " 1, it Is not that fast, lots of Pokémon have higher speeds than 100. 2, who puts Brick Break on a Charizard? Earthquake is a questionable move as well being a physical move while Charizard has some what decent special attack being 109 while it's Attack is just 84. Please, if you are going to vote for Charizard, please look up information to make sure it is actually good.

So lets see... weaknesses ha... a lot of them... well lets start the count... Water, Rock, Electric. Now the attacks he can learn...

Thunder Punch, Solarbeam = Bye bye water types

Iron tail, Metal Claw, Steel wing, Brick Break= So long rocks...

Earthquake, Bulldoze, Dig= you know where I'm going...

So even though he has a lot of weakness he also possesses powers to deal with it better than any Pokemon... and I think that is just more than enough to make him one of the strongest Pokemon...

Mr. Demolisher, I'd say. The ultimate fire Pokemon. I say that this Pokemon is the strongest because first it learns really powerful moves just like blast burn and overheat. Also, it is a original. Arceus came from the 4th generation, which you can't get from the earlier generations. Lastly, why Charizard should he the strongest Pokemon is because his special ability, blaze and solar power kicks butt!
