Top 10 Strongest Pokemon

Pokemon has been a part of our lives since 1996, when the first games came out and introduced us to the wonderful world of catching and battling monsters. Over the years, the Pokemon universe has grown bigger and better, with new generations of Pokemon that have their own special traits and powers. Some Pokemon have stood out from the rest, becoming legends in their own right and earning the admiration of fans everywhere.

You probably have a favorite Pokemon that you think is the strongest of them all. Maybe it's a legendary like Mewtwo, who has incredible stats and Psychic powers. Or maybe you love a beast like Dragonite, who can learn many different moves and hit hard with its physical attacks.

But what about the hidden gems? Are there any Pokemon that are underrated but have amazing potential and strength? With so many Pokemon to choose from, it's hard to say which ones are truly the best of the best.

So, no matter if you're an old-school fan of the first 151 or you've caught up with the latest generation, there's something for everyone on this list. From electric mice to legendary birds, these Pokemon have shown that they are some of the most awesome creatures in the Pokemon world.
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.

I don't believe that Arceus is number one. I thought Arceus would be third or second. He is the strongest Saiyan in history. Without him, no one could get destroyed. He has more than a thousand forms.

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.

Arceus is the god of Pokemon. It has immunity to all attacks. Even though Dragon-type moves are typically effective against Dragon-type Pokemon, Arceus is immune. I saw this in the Arceus and the Jewel of Life movie. Dialga, Palkia, and Arceus fought each other. Before Giratina entered the battle, Dialga and Palkia attempted to defeat Arceus. Palkia used a Dragon-type attack, but Arceus transformed into Draco-Arceus (violet color) and took no damage from the attack! I was amazed by this. Then Giratina joined the battle because the other two Pokemon were unable to continue. Even though Arceus granted Giratina nearly the same power to rule the other dimension, Arceus remained unaffected because Ghost-type attacks cannot harm Normal-type Pokemon like Arceus!

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... read more

Mewtwo is the best.

Mewtwo is number one, always. It has awesome stats and can learn basically any move. When I go up against the Elite Four, I can use Mewtwo exclusively. I don't have to use any potions because all of its hits are KOs.

Arceus may be in 1st place, but I believe Mewtwo is not that far down from that level. He was made in a lab on Cinnabar Island by cloning Mew and promptly destroyed the lab once created. He is undoubtedly powerful.

The most powerful, hands down! His psychic powers are second to none. Mewtwo cannot be defeated by any other Pokemon. Despite what anyone says, the idea that Mew is the only one that can go toe-to-toe with him is wrong. The reason is that Mewtwo is simply a level above Mew. There are only two Pokemon that stand a chance against him, and their names are Deoxys - for being the one that smashed Rayquaza in the movie and has the special power to transform into speed, attack, and defense forms - and Jirachi. Yes, that's right, I said Jirachi, for its Wish ability to either make itself powerful or make Mewtwo the weakest of all Pokemon. Also, it's a Steel and Psychic type, making it a very difficult opponent.

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... read more

In his Mega form, his base stat total is currently only topped by Eternamax Eternatus, a Pokemon you can't even obtain. The battle against Eternamax Eternatus is almost impossible to lose, even when trying. Rayquaza is undoubtedly very strong.

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, but it's also an offensive powerhouse that can hold any other item, like a Life Orb for example. It also has the Delta Stream ability, which completely negates all Flying-type weaknesses, meaning it's only weak to Ice (2x), Dragon, and Fairy, all while retaining 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 a ton compared to most Pokemon. It's so OP that it was banned from the banned tier by Smogon. It's the ONLY Pokemon in the Anything Goes tier. Mega Rayquaza is a beast from a 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 favorite Pokemon, but it is the strongest by stats, Mega form, moves, and ability. Tiers? More like tears.

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, the base DNA of all Pokemon. As seen in the movie, Mew is evenly matched with Mewtwo. If Mewtwo is stronger than Rayquaza, shouldn't Mew be higher? Anyways, Mew can basically use any move she wants. She could also change her form to any Pokemon. Therefore, she should be higher.

Mew has been able to fight evenly with Mewtwo, but has never really gone all out, as was seen when Mewtwo was 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 the eighth movie. He can transform into any Pokemon and is capable of performing any attack, making Arceus' ability to change types ineffective against him. These are 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 to have any limits and only became weak once when the Tree of Beginning was dying.

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 move 10x stronger than Phantom Force, and it can break through all protections! It should be number two or one because, um, Arceus is a 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 happened. 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 plates by Shadow Forcing behind Arceus and taking 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 first 5 Pokemon, it has control over antimatter, albeit this role was granted 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 through your Protect, Spiky Shield, King's Shield, or whatever other protection you have. This is what makes Giratina my favorite Pokemon.

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

Dialga, with its Adamant Orb and Roar of Time, can defeat any Pokémon in a single move. The Dragon-type move, Adamant Orb, already deals 2.0x damage, and the move itself is incredibly potent with a power of 150. Furthermore, even without this move, moves like Flash Cannon, Aura Sphere, and Earth Power prove to be more than sufficient in bringing down opponents due to Dialga's immensely high special attack.

Dialga is just an amazing Pokemon. With a dual 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 special defense and it 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.

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 dominate.

7 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 hadn't sent him away. Also, in the Pokémon 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 an immense, draconian Pokémon with two giant wings that have a lot of power. Lugia has the ability Pressure, which causes the opposing Pokémon to double its PP usage in battles. Known as the guardian of the seas, Lugia is tremendously intelligent and is very gentle with the life around it, despite its colossal size. Due to the fact that it can blow away houses with a single flap of its wings, it lies at the bottom of the sea. As the guardian, it can talk like human beings, which is a really good advantage.

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 about that. You also have access to Ice Beam and Fusion Flare to give even more options to shred 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 about an ice-type move on its 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 only to Arceus, Mega Mewtwo, and Mega Rayquaza.

2: Attack and Special Attack (depending on whether fused with Reshiram or Zekrom) shoot through the roof. Tied with Rayray and Mewtwo in higher stats.

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 the concepts of yin and yang.

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

If you could bend space, you'd be literally unstoppable. He works for Arceus and probably couldn't or wouldn't ever fight him, but his pure power and amazing coverage make for an absolute force to be reckoned with. The power to control space means you could be anywhere in an instant, and you could also split your opponent in two before they have a chance to move. Completely untouchable and able to destroy anyone, anywhere, at any moment. I understand that Dialga's ability to freeze time is a pretty strong counter, but I still think Palkia has a much cooler ability.

I call Palkia the "King of the Sea" alongside Carracosta and Kyogre. Seriously, I thought it was a psychic type! Look at its 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 a creator of the Pokémon world. Just too awesome, dudes. Arceus is truly strong, but Palkia is maybe as strong as Arceus, I think.

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 her.
Then he befriended Alicia's descendants. Its one real friend, however, was about to die.
Palkia and Dialga battled, surrounding the whole city in a mystic white veil. If anyone ran into it, they would return to the city.
As the battle continued, Darkrai was suspected and received tremendous hate from everyone except Ash, his companions, and his one friend.
The city started to melt away as the battle progressed.
He was determined to save his one friend ever, but when he got hit by Roar of Time and Special Rend, he sacrificed 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, let's move Darkrai from number 10 to number 1.

The Newcomers

? Spectrier
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 its advantage. In the Pokémon universe, I would say that Deoxys is most likely the strongest ever discovered. While Mewtwo was created from Mew by humans, and Mew created Pokémon on Earth, so to speak, Deoxys evolved from an extraterrestrial organism and found its 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 Pokémon that could stand up to Deoxys in matters of stat balance would be Mewtwo and Mew in the Pokémon universe. All other Pokémon would be wise to fear a misunderstood Deoxys, since that was the case in Destiny Deoxys... and look what happened to Rayquaza there. No questions asked, Deoxys is the most powerful at its maximum potential. I'd assume that would be how to properly rate these when they are at their best.

12 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 well-balanced its stats are. It can take out the occasional Ho-oh that a trainer sends out, and with one simple Dragon Dance, it becomes 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, in my opinion, Reshiram was disappointing. First of all, Zekrom has a way better design than Reshiram. Blue electricity: now that is cool. Besides, Reshiram has that normal fire, just like any other fire-type Pokemon, while most electric Pokemon have yellow electricity. Zekrom should at least be in the No. 10 spot.

Zekrom has outstanding attack! Its moves, Fusion Bolt and Bolt Strike, can hurt a Pokémon badly!

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

Groudon is a Pokémon prodigy. For people who like Groudon and watch the anime, he was just destroying Kyogre in a snap. Primal Groudon is just scary. It has crazy base stats, and its moves are 🤯 explosive. When you say Groudon doesn't have access to many physical moves, that is actually so inaccurate. It has access to super-powerful STAB moves such as Precipice Blades, Earthquake, Fissure, and Dig. Not just that, but it also has access to some of the strongest and most useful stat-boosting moves ever, like Bulk Up and Swords Dance, taking its attack stat to an even more powerful extent. Additionally, it has access to a wide pool of coverage moves. These coverage moves include Fire Fang, Aerial Ace, Brick Break, Zen Headbutt, Shadow Claw, Fire Punch, Thunder Punch, Dragon Claw, Rock Slide, Body Press, Iron Head, Heavy Slam, Stone Edge, and more!

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. This ability turns the sunlight extremely harsh, so not only does it boost the power of Fire-type moves, but it also 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.

14 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, which beat out approximately 65-70% of the legendaries, and the move pool that this thing possesses. Tell me that Dragonite shouldn't be on the list. He has high attack and special 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 and has insanely high stats. He is also the signature Pokemon of the coolest trainer, Lance.

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

Lots of people seem to think Zekrom is more powerful than Reshiram, and I'm quite offended by that! Reshiram looks a lot cooler than Zekrom, and their base stat totals are the same. Reshiram should be at least in the top 7.

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 in speed and good with everything else, meaning they're pretty much exactly the same.

Did anyone read my last comment about Reshiram? I said that the Pokedex states 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

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 monstrous attack, which is good in his case. His signature move has about 150 base power with STAB, and a 50% burn chance. He even gets 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 about 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.

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

Not only can Ditto transform into any Pokemon it wants to, but it can also transform into anything 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 Dittos 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? They're all 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, but it can also 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 they're weak against. It can become - theoretically - anything that exists: the Moon, the Earth, Arceus, etc.

An organized army of Dittos could take over the planet if they wanted - so could a lot of Pokemon, I guess. But the difference is that Dittos could do it without anyone ever noticing. They could replace your family and friends without you realizing it. Eventually, a Ditto could replace you. They could replace us all.

Unless... They already have.

18 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... read more

Yveltal is a beast and would be scary if it existed in real life. I mean, when it dies, it literally blasts a death ray that saps the life force of any living thing for at least a mile! This should be in the top 10.

Come on! Xerneas is definitely the weakest Pokemon in the universe. My least favorite Pokemon is Xerneas, and my favorite is Yveltal. In the anime, they just think of it like, "Oh, it represents destruction, death, and villains. It's a Dark type, so it's a bad guy!" How dare they think that! Anyone who 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 versus 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 out of Xerneas.

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

Seriously! Only 20? Tyranitar is such a beast. He could destroy anything and everything. Quiet, Ditto. I know you can turn into anything, but it's 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 afterward. He is 6 feet 7 inches and can completely change the landscape. That is the definition of a strong Pokémon right there. Kyogre is almost as strong, but I have this unwritten rule about using legendary Pokémon for battling in the games. Tyranitar is and always will be my favorite Pokémon. It will never change, mostly because I don't really like generations 5 or 6 too much.

What, come on, 22? The world is broken because of this guy. This guy could destroy Mount Everest in a couple of seconds and you put him at 22? Really, people? He is my favorite dark-type Pokémon and he can destroy Lugia and Mewtwo according to their types. Of course, he has weaknesses, but being a pseudo-legendary is important!

20 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... read more

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 less 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 go-to (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 dinosaurs are stronger than fire-breathing dragons. And a rainbow deer is over three times better than an ugly fire-breathing dragon who faints when anything uses a rock move.

21 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 weak to Fire, can learn almost every high-priority move, and has Technician! Even with his loss of speed (compared to his pre-evolution), he can strike first with a hell of an attack power. And if he uses Swords Dance, baby, he is invincible. Have you ever tried to use a 1HP Scizor with three stages of Swords Dance and the Reversal attack? And if you add one stage of 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 allows him to survive a Fire move with 1HP, congratulations, you win the game. (Best strategy: Ninjask/Furret/others, one Agility and one Swords Dance, with Substitute for support, then Baton Pass (with Substitute), one Swords Dance with Scizor (opponent switches his Pokémon to one with a Fire-type move), another Swords Dance, Scizor resists with 1HP (with that item), and voila, you win the game with Reversal).

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

*Ahem* For all the Kyogre lovers, I've made a list that proves Kyogre is superior to Groudon:

Groudon and Kyogre have tied base stat totals. However, Groudon takes a more physical approach, while Kyogre focuses more on special moves. Ironically, Groudon learns very few physical moves, whereas Kyogre mainly learns special moves.

I've conducted some more experiments to prove that Kyogre is better than Groudon, at least in competitive play:

1: Even if Groudon's ability overrides Kyogre's, Kyogre still has Ice Beam, which remains super effective.

2: Kyogre's ability, Drizzle, doesn't just make Thunder have 100% accuracy. It also grants Hurricane 100% accuracy. Furthermore, Drizzle enhances Water-type moves, weakens Fire-type moves, and halves the damage from Solar Beam.

3: Groudon's ability, Drought, does NOT enhance Ground-type moves. In fact, Groudon has only eight moves that actually synergize with its ability. Seven of these are Fire-type moves, which are all special (Groudon has a poor Special Attack stat). The eighth is Solar Beam, which is Groudon's only effective method to faint Kyogre, aside from Earthquake.

So should you choose Omega Ruby (Groudon) or Alpha Sapphire (Kyogre)? Well, the choice is yours, but it will depend on what your team will be. If you use mostly Fire-types (or Pokémon with Solar Beam), then Omega Ruby would be a better choice for you. However, if you have a Water-type team (or Pokémon with Thunder and/or Hurricane), then Alpha Sapphire should be your choice.

My planned team will include:

Gardevoir (Mega Evolution)

I'm going to choose Alpha Sapphire so that my Swampert can get an extra boost. Which one are you going to pick?

23 Typhlosion Typhlosion, known in Japan as Bakphoon, is a Pokémon species in Nintendo and Game Freak's Pokémon franchise.

Typhlosion is clearly the best. I remember cruising through Sprout Tower and creaming Bugsy and the other gym leaders. Cyndaquil was my very first Pokemon, and every few minutes I'd yell to my bro, "It's level ten! It's level ten! Now it's level eleven!" I was so psyched when I heard HG and SS were coming out! No other Pokemon will ever compare to the memories us Typhlosion fans have with our Pokemon.

Typhlosion evolves from Cyndaquil, the cutest, most adorable, most loyal Pokemon, and it is a boss! Vote for him, or else! Plus, I hope he destroys Frozen (the movie) with his awesome heat. I hate Let It Go now that everyone keeps singing it! It's a great song, but overrated (and over-sung).

Typhlosion is definitely the best Fire-type Pokemon around. It has one of the coolest appearances from the whole second generation. Although it may not be an awesome dragon like Charizard or a crazy character like Infernape, it without a doubt has a great combination of speed and special attack. This chap deserves to be at least within the top 15.

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

He's one of the best Pokémon. He can Mega Evolve into Mega Gengar. He is definitely the strongest ghost Pokémon, and he is also a poison type. And if you fight him with a normal or fighting type, it won't deal him any damage. Also, when he levitates, ground types won't hurt him either. He sure is one strong Pokémon and deserves to be ranked much higher than just 44.

Ok, if you haven't watched Pokémon Journeys, I can understand why you might not vote for him, but he is good in it. Although, actually, maybe not, because Pokémon Journeys does make Pokémon 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.

It steals heat from its surroundings. If you feel a sudden chill, it is certain that a Gengar has 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.

25 Blastoise Blastoise, known in Japan as Kamex, is a Pokémon species in Nintendo and Game Freak's Pokémon franchise.

Blastoise is indeed my role model. He has a Mega Evolution (Gen 6) and is one of the only Water-type starters to maintain the only water type throughout all three of his evolutions. As a Squirtle, he can learn Bite early on, which can be upgraded to Crunch through the Move Relearner. Additionally, in Generation 6 games, this can be upgraded to Dark Pulse, a really good Dark-type move.

Being solely a Water type, he has only two weaknesses: Grass and Electric. First of all, Blastoise can learn Earthquake, which is enough to wreck most Electric types. He can also learn Ice Beam, giving him a super-effective move against Grass types.

Some people may say that Swampert is better, but no. Swampert does negate Electric-type damage, but the sacrifice is too great. He is 4x weak against Grass types, his only and fatal weakness.

Anyone who says Blastoise wouldn't win in a Kanto starter Battle Royale is being ignorant.
