Top 10 Strongest Starter Pokemon

Up To Generation 6 (X And Y) This Is The Top 10 Strongest Pokemon To Use In Battle (This Is Not On Opinion Or Stat Wise, It Is Based On They're Quality In Battle. This Is Also Of Their Finale Forms)
The Top Ten
1 Swampert Swampert, known in Japan as Laglarge, is a Pokémon species in Nintendo and Game Freak's Pokémon franchise.

Swampert's only weakness is grass which is easily countered by ice and poison type moves. Ex: Ice beam and Sludge Wave. When I used Swampert in OR, it literally never fainted. I refused to use other pokemon against May's Sceptile, even though don't had Swellow, Salamence, and Ninetails who each could easily have killed her Sceptile. I will always hold Swampert in a special place in my heart (like friends). I used to love Oshawott because it was my first ever pokémon, but then I had Swampert and everything changed.

So strong, I heard that this was the strongest starter for ORAS and I didn't think it would have been but would you believe it, it definitely is. It is so strong against every single gym, especially the rock/ground gym and the electric type gym. if you haven't played ORAS or saph, ruby, or em, you would think its crazy that it would be strong against electric types, but it really is. It is resistant to electric

Amazing stats, beating every other starter's base stats. Incredibly useful with amazing movesets like earthquake, surf, waterfall, hydropump, etc. It was pretty much good for anything but speed but now, with it;s mega evolution, that only con is filled. When raining, it can outrun many pokemon that could be a potential threat. Very reliable throughout the whole game.

Made my vote on Swampert not because it's a fave (it's not) because it has the highest best of any starter, and it has a mega... yeah, Blue Kermit doesn't have it on this fish, axolotl, monster... thing (by the way, I actually chose Sceptile in ORAS because it's a raptor with a pine growing out of it's ass)

2 Greninja Greninja is a Water/Dark type Pokemon introduced in Gen 6. It is the evolved form of Frogadier and the final evolved form of the water starter Froakie. Aside from the usual Torrent ability all Water starters have (Which raises the power of its Water moves), it also has the ability Protean, which changes more.

Greninja is SO OVERRATED IT'S RIDICULOUS! Just about any move can one-hit-KO it, and Ash-Greninja is just as frail as regular Greninja. Greninja is spoiled and is the reason why Chestnut and Delphox are so underrated! Oh, you thought Charizard was overrated, huh. News flash, Charizard is underrated because everyone hates on it because of its 4x rock weakness. Greninja doesn't need a 4x weakness to get OHKO'd. Bulky pokemon will take that hit and it's lights out for Greninja. Or, a Ninjask or Electrode will just OHKO him right off the bat! He has a Paper Airplane as a head and looks like a scribble. Did I mention that it's weak to Bug? It's also annoying how people are like "It is stronger than Charizard". Come on, if Ash-Greninja and Mega Charizard X had a fight, you all know who would win. (#Ash vs. Alain)
Also, Mega Charizard Y could beat him too because of Drought.

This Pokemon has a lot of weaknesses but somehow someway can DEAL WITH IT the only water starters that I think can come close to the power of this hydro pump machine are the famous and loved Blastoise and Swampert. It doesn't really need its protean as long as you ev train it right

I love greninja not only cause it looks like a badass but it's a sweeper, it's fast, and it's the only starter that does not need a megastone to mega evolve. It's because of battle bond,an ablity that turns Greninja into a maniac ninja that's fast and powerful.Thug life

Thank you for voting for this guy he's better then Charizard ( I like Charizard to but u can't deny he's over rated) I will admit that Greninga is over rated but he's a ninga what more do u want also he can easily beat mega charizard x.
also ash Greninja is so cool it can also beat torterra and a few other grass types

3 Primarina

The thing is their are not a lot of really strong water type but primarina is REALLY good

Primarina is a beast, she can body all of your fire starters.

So beautiful, so strong, I mean, fairy and water... and more...

Best starter ever

4 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 more.

Charizard's mega X evolution skews its weaknesses, also it goes from bein a fire and flying to being a fire and dragon. Meaning water moves are no longer super effective, and it is not weak to ice and fairy types. Also it knows hone claws. If you teach it dragon claw (as to the fact that its not full on dragon type so it can't learn Draco meteor. Though Draco meteor will actually be weaker then teaching it dragon claw) and mega evolve it, it gets a boost to damage because its now a dragon type (which due to same type move boosts makes dragon claw stronger) then the ability hone claw boosts dragon claw even more because it is a physical move so with the correct training dragon claw can almost always be a one hit KO and when it isn't a one hit KO it does a ton of damage. Teach Charizard iron tail or iron head, and thunder punch, and he/she can easily eliminate Pokémon he/she is weak too. Plus flamethrower is a great move to teach it because no recharge meaning no moment of weakness but ...more

Charizard is OP! he can breath the foes pokemon to burn on the face, not loved to burn humans, also, charizard have hugh stats of physical attack too. warning from mega charizard X with extreme speed and flare blitz...

Charizard, charmeleon, charmander all suck I don't understand why people keep saying charizard is the the strongest he's literally so weak.

Charizard is killing any pokemon with fire moves OHKO, he can be the new arceus - fire, can be the new primal kyogre, can kill all grass types with fire type moves and he is dragon!

5 Blaziken Blaziken, known in Japan as Bashāmo, is a Pokémon species in Nintendo and Game Freak's Pokémon franchise.

Why so low? It's mega is awesome competitively. It has speed boost and incredible stats! Charizard sucks because first of all it is overrated and always gets as much spotlight as pikachu. Second, it's typing sucks against rock types and since stealth rock is so common in competitive, just sending out charizard will cut its hp down to half health! I mean come on, blaziken is the real best fire starter, not dumb charizard. I mean it does look cool and all, but how can you not say that blazkien looks awesome though?

It goes from Torchic, the cute little chic, to Combusken, the firey flaming fighter, to Blaziken, the lean, mean, fighting machine! The best by far. I know there are a lot of fire-fighting types, but this is the legend, the original, the boss!

Only starters in uber's doesn't even need its mega evolution, huge attack and speed. Greninja seems like a close second, serperior for third, swamperet 4rth because it is carried by its mega. Without megas, charizard should be on the bottom. Blaizeken is beast (good Stevens metagross)

This Pokemon is awesome. With it's ability speed boost when it mega evolve and high attack IV's, you can sweep an entire team with you going first every time and using your high attack, this Pokemon is awesome.

6 Charmander Charmander, known as Hitokage in Japan, is a Pokémon species in Nintendo and Game Freak's Pokémon franchise. This Pokémon is a fire type starter Pokémon. It evolves into Charmeleon which evolves into Charizard.

Omestly charrmander and its evolutions beats all the other starters I, for those who love cuteness, here you go a charmander, for those who love epicness hear you go charizard and for those who just love fire pokemom and strength here you go the hole evolution line.And who can forget Mega Evolutions, they jusy make charizard cooler and + charizard has 2 Mega Evolutions so that's cool and 1 of them was made before Mega Evolutions themselfs where made and 1 can beat MEWTWO.I mean gosh Charizard you have to give the other good starters a chance like sceptile and graninja, becuase for now there the only compatition and maybe the new starters like incinaroar are compatition to but for now keep, ruling charmander!

I have a level 100 Charizard and he's boss, I beat pretty much the entire Pokemon league with him alone. Plus he looks super awesome, I mean who doesn't want a flying fire breathing dragon on their team.

"! Charmander is so strong! " No it's not. I can kill one of it with a water bottle. Yeah, you heard me A WATER BOTTLE out of all of the other things. The next time you see this pokèmon, remember what I said.

Charmander can turn into Charizard which is one of the strongest pokemon ever

7 Infernape Infernape, known in Japan as Goukazaru, is a Pokémon species in Nintendo and Game Freak's Pokémon franchise.

Infernape is super boss. I mean, what's not to like him, he's a flaming hot monkey. I sweeper the gyms and the elite 4 with this bad ass pokemon. The only reason I play platinum is to use this pokemon terminator.

He's based on GOKU. Swampert is based on some ugly monster thing. Mega infernape will be a beast when it comes out

Infernape is the one starter I look at and say, "How can you get any better"

Look at infernape it is so cool I even used infernape in pokemon games

8 Venusaur Venusaur, known in Japan as Fushigibana, is a Pokémon species in Nintendo and Game Freak's Pokémon franchise.

Well bulbasaur has one of the strongest starter pack because of its last evolution venusaur!

This has got to be the most underrated starter

Noo how how is not in the top 10 he so strong

I have ivysaur and so excited about it evolving into Venusaur!

9 Empoleon Empoleon, known in Japan as Emperte, is a Pokémon species in Nintendo and Game Freak's Pokémon franchise.

I completed a solo run on platinum using Empoleon (and a few HM slaves for getting around the place). Definitely recommend it, but my favourite is still torterra.

What I like about Empoleon is his fusions. the best one I like is with bisharp. He Just looks so sick

I have a level 72 Empoleon and he's a king against fire types.

Steel type is amazing

10 Bulbasaur Bulbasaur, known in Japan as Fushigidane, is the first Pokémon species in Nintendo and Game Freak's Pokémon franchise.

Really good in the first few gym battles

My favrot pokemon

Truly great

Put saur up higher now. the best starter's are grass, because there is so many dang water types.

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

Unbelievable this guy simply doesn't die. Great wall and, or sweeper undefeated typing getting rid of all of grasses weakness

It's hard to believe that little adorable squirt Turtwig evolved into Torterra! Anyone who bullies Grotle or Turtwig is going to have a hard time when Grotle evolves.

It beats all the fire starters with ground moves, and beats all the water starters with grass moves.

Even being a plant type, the type with most weakenesses, It can tank up to 3 supereffective moves.

12 Sceptile Sceptile, known in Japan as Jukain, is a Pokémon species in Nintendo and Game Freak's Pokémon franchise.

ITS known for its speed and it is quite sgrong too and there aren't many grass type pokemon so its very good.

Way better than charizard, at least sceptile isn't 1 shot killed by rock types

I agree with the comment about the Mega Evolution wrecking a lot of things.

Sceptile is my favourite starter because I like geckos plus he looks awesome especially in mega form (his mega ability is lightning rod) He has awesome moves such as leaf storm,leaf blade,false swipe and by using a tm or hm sola beam.Pzz he should have a higher spot.

13 Mudkip Mudkip, known in Japan as Mizugorou, is a Pokémon species in Nintendo and Game Freak's Pokémon franchise.

Mudkip was so cute when I first saw it, I also have mudkips as my profile pic lol

It's just the first evolution. Out of top 10.

Of course it should be 1

A first evolution.

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

I am the the only one surprised by this? There shouldn't even by the top ten. Blastoise is obviously the the best.

Blastoise is strong idiots it should be in the top 5

Blastoise is the best ever idiots. its #1 always

I love this Pokemon

15 Squirtle Squirtle, known as Zenigame in Japan, is a Pokémon species in Nintendo and Game Freak's Pokémon franchise. It was originally conceived by Game Freak's character development team and finalized by Chaniah Pantry. It is a squirrel-turtle hybrid. It is a starter Pokémon and evolves into Wartortle which more.

Blastoise is the strongest kanto starter. If you focus your training on this guy he will be able to kill everything. Teach it blizzard, ice punch, or ice beam to take care of plant pokemon fast, and earthquake or dig for electric pokemon, along with skull bash for high physical damage and hydropump for a devastating water move, and he will be unstoppable.

He is the best even gary tells he actually gary is better than ash blastoise should be no. 1 and squirtle above charmander

So good can even have sunglasses I even chose squirtle

16 Turtwig Turtwig, known in Japan as Naetle, is a Pokémon species in Nintendo and Game Freak's Pokémon franchise.

It is so cute, and look very strong from its shell

Turtwig is my favourite pokemon ever

Turtwig rocks, he is my favorite Pokemon ever,better than any pokemon even mewtwo!

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

Although I don't think it's the strongest or weakest but I think it should be higher

So underrated strong quick defensive should be number 1234 and 5

People underestimate this pokemon

Way underrated.

18 Totodile Totodile, known in Japan as Waninoko, is a Pokémon species in Nintendo and Game Freak's Pokémon franchise.

Amazing! He's adorable! He can learn Dragon Claw when he evolves into Feraligatr!

Totodile is amazing and when you evolve he is op.

It is the man of a life read a poked ex no lie

Always can count on my totodile. it never lets me down

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

He smashes through every thing it meets with Razor shell

Basic form is so cute and powerful!

So powerful. Pikachu can not even do 1 damage to a magicarp

Basic form is cute and powerful

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

Typhlosion should be number 1! Charizard is number 3, but it's just overrated! Typhlosion is way better than Charizard could ever be! Name 1 person that does had with Typhlosion that isn't a complete dumbass!

Typhlosion deserves to be in the top ten because if you raise it properly it is a literal tank. The Typlosion I had in soul silver was hardly ever affected by confusion and paralyze. Typhlosion is also my favorite

Typhlosion is a monster. I had a level 50 on my team against my brother' level 89 Feraligatr 1v1 and Feraligatr got wrecked

Typholsion is just an awesome looking volcano pokemon that evolves from the cutest thing ever

21 Froakie Froakie, known in Japan as Keromatsu, is a Pokémon species in Nintendo and Game Freak's Pokémon franchise.

You will be amazing when you evolve your cute keeper going

22 Delphox Delphox, known in Japan as Mahoxy, is a Pokémon species in Nintendo and Game Freak's Pokémon franchise.

I have this awesome and great pokemon even thought I'm only 10 I'm the champion of elite 4 who wouldn't like him?

I like Delphox's design. That's all I can really say.

There's a spot in Hogwarts for you Delphox

He's super powerful

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

Not kidding. It can beat a torchic

24 Pikachu Pikachu (Japanese: ピカチュウ) are a species of Pokémon, fictional creatures that appear in an assortment of video games, animated television shows and movies, trading card games, and comic books licensed by The Pokémon Company, a Japanese corporation.

He's so incredibly strong. How can you not vote for him?!

Pikachu technically isn't even a starter

He is a starter in pokemon yellow version

Nothing can beat it

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

It was beast in the main story, took out every totem pokemon

Awesome and cool

Incineroar is the best because when you hit him he gets stronger and stronger ad he's only weak to one thing
