Top Ten Legendary Pokemon

The top ten list of the Pokemon series' legendaries.
The Top Ten
1 Mewtwo Mewtwo is a fictional creature from Nintendo and Game Freak's Pokémon media franchise. It was created by Dr. Fuji in an attempt to clone Mew.

Mewtwo can beat any pokemon. As explained in the first movie he can make a hurricane that can destroy the planet. He has a very high intelligence, hence he was able to rebuild the laboratory with no experience in that subject. He is able to block a pokemons special ability which would get rid of a few pokemon off the bat including a so called creator of the universe. He can control people's and pokemons mind. When he took over nurse joy for a few weeks. His speed is the second fastest of all the legendary pokemon meaning he would attack first from the majority. He can learn a vast array of moves which gives him great coverage. He is able to put a barrier around him that reflects all kinds of attacks if you look at the first movie. In the pokemon special he was able to transport a whole lake and a mountain with no difficulty. In the first movie he is able to wipe there minds from the memories thy had of him. And he was able to destroy a whole island and team rockets headquarters with ...more

Mewtwo might not have some of the skills of Arceus but this is the top legendary pokemon nor the most multi-skilled. Mewtwo tops this list for numerous reasons: 1) he is the iconic legendary pokemon without a doubt. 2)He has one of the best stories of any pokemon, all that genetic experiments, abuse and rejection he suffered before taking revenge and growing into a more compassionate pokemon- it's a great story! 3) He looks the coolest! 4) He is such a complex character he is an actual character, not just another pokemon like all the legendaries- this guy has a real story the type sentient beings have.

Mewtwo may be able to beat any Pokemon, but that being said, any Pokemon can beat any Pokemon. Mewtwo can recover because it is still suffering from how humans treated it, so it shut off the rest of the world. The silver water renders arceus useless, because if the god doesn't have something to counteract it then game freak has a serious problem. Yes, we don't know who would win, but they are equal because they were evenly matched the whole time. For all you know, arceus can make a hurricane. Arceus can learn a vast array of moves, plus it can be a physical attacker. Blissey totally walls mewtwo, while arceus can swords dance past. Arceus can probably transport a whole lake and mountain with no difficulty. Arceus can probably destroy the island and team rocket's hq with barely any of its power. He couldn't destroy the temple? Have you noticed that as Pokemon movies go on, each Pokemon's power gets smaller and smaller? Mewtwo's too. look at regigigas, who is so slow while moving ...more

We I had a Drain Punch, Psychic, Recover, Me First Mewtwo and it kicked butts in Soulsilver. I also have it in Let's go and it was my go to if I was in trouble and did the most damage in PvP. Once I transferred Mewtwo to Platinum, I destroyed the elite four so quickly (since I could only get to the champion but, I would lose there). Also, Mewtwo can cause chaos in the movies too like the one that he was FEATURED IN. He is that strong! Also as a sidenote, fairly new Detective Pikachu movie shows Mewtwo putting human into Pokemon! That is crazy powerful! The only Pokemon that I personally think could do that is Palkia but, Palkia isn't as powerful as Mewtwo (even though Palkia is obviously in the top ten). Hopefully you'll have a good day and I hope now you know of Mewtwo's true power (of you didn't)!

2 Rayquaza Rayquaza is a Legendary Pokémon species in Nintendo and Game Freak's Pokémon franchise. It lives in the ozone layer, and frequently stops battles with Kyogre and Groudon, two other Legendaries.

Rayquaza is the protector of the Earth therefore anything on earth has to be weaker than him otherwise why would they need his protecting. Sure he's not smart like mewtwo and he's not the creator like arceus but the fact that he's just a raw wreck kinda guy makes up for all of that. Anything that comes through his ozone layer is destroyed instantly. Just look at destiny deoxys the movie within the first ten minutes of the movie he disintegrates half of deoxys body and then just completely kills him. What else is there to say he's a rocket dragon that can defends the earth.

Rayquaza is probably THE quintessential legendary Pokémon. A fearsome dragon that only emerges when Groudon and Kyogre are up to their usual shenanigans, Rayquaza is a force to be reckoned with. In fact, Smogon made a new tier just because its Mega form was so overpowered!

Rayquaza has some of the highest stats for any legendary. He is also the largest legendary to date (not including weight) he is one of the rare few to actually kill another Pokemon (he killed Deoxys the first time, you can't put complete disintegration any other way). If the fact that he's huge and a killer doesn't prove it well just look at the other Pokemon and people. In Emerald Kyogre and Groudon instantly bowed to his command, and in his movie all the people who knew about him were terrified when he arrived. Bottem line he can destroy anything that gets in his way, id even fancy his chances beating all the other legendaries

I think Rayquaza is the best legendary Pokemon. It is genuine legendary that they referred as super-ancient Pokemon. Unlike Mewtwo who is created by mere human with artificial mean, no one know who created Rayquaza. All that we know, he exist far before man kind, as it stated that Groudon created the land, while Kyogre created the sea. It brings balance to the world, when the world is about to destroy by the overwhelming power of Groudon and Kyogre. It isn't even using any power to calm them down. It just decent from the sky, starring those two then the fight over, as easy as blinking eye. That is the evidence to its superior power even among the legendary Pokemon itself. It flies like meteor and it is so fast that anyone barely notice it. It confront two Deoxys at once to defend it territories. Not to mention how powerful Rayquaza in the game. It is the only Pokemon who has both 150 Att and SpAtt. with jolly nature, it can out-speed every uber Pokemon except deoxys, make it ...more

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

Forget all those people who only give a crap about rayquaza and arceus, lugia is better. First has greater achievements. Ok which is better... One flap of your wings to make a 40 day storm AND stopping 3 legendary birds that if continued fighting would destroy the world or a scream to stop 2 legendarys one of which created the seas. Rayquaza is a frikin idiot. They could have made the world bigger. And arceus being the ancestor of all pokemon is a LIE! Mew is the true one. This was no contest, besides rayquaza could get WAXED kyreum just like how arceus is the definition of the word cheap and still can't take more than 3 aura spheres from mew or mewtwo. Long story short arceus and rayquaza are just mad overrated

The first time I saw Lugia from Alpha Sapphire on Serebi.Net, I thought he looked cool and was sad that since I owned Omega Ruby only at the time, that I can only get Ho-Oh and not Lugia. Lugia became my favorite legendary and favorite pokemon in the longshot when I got Alpha Sapphire and captured him at Sea Mauville in the underwater engine room. Lugia is no doubt, awesome. He may of done some bad stuff, but after all that, he hid himself underwater so he could not harm any more pokemon/humans. Lugia could beat Ho-Oh by using any high power water move like Hydro Pump. Besides, Lugia has a better and cuter design then Ho-Oh. If you don't believe me, go look up the little Lugia from the show/anime called Silver. In fact I am ordering a rare tall Lugia plush soon

I have played through Pokemon Soulsilver over eight times, trying out as many different team combinations as I could. Each time I encountered Lugia, I wash it with a rush of nostalgia. I remembered "Pokemon 2000" so vividly, and would think about one of the series's best pieces, "Lugia's Song." And it's not like all it has was the amazing movie and theme going for it, but it also is amazing on the battlefield. Being very bulky and having access to recover, it truly isn't anything to be taken lightly.

I have four moves on lugia... Aeroblast, hydro pump, fly, and recovery. He has such high defense that it takes multiple hits to kill him. Once lugia gets close to fainting I just use recover and it restores about 80% of his hp. I keep repeating this cycle and it makes my lugia almost impossible to take down. Using lugia is almost unfair. Whenever I play with friends I have to limit what moves I use just to make it even. This is even when my friends have a full party of level 100's. Lugia is virtually unstoppable and is the best pokemon. Period!

4 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.

Hey, the only ghost dragon out there. Mewtwo is WAY TOO OVERRATED, and Rayquaza was very overrated. That makes me hate Mewtwo and somehow hate Rayquaza, and sure, Giratina was a god Pokémon. Antimatter! Antimatter wins over humans, time, and space. Giratina doesn't need to breathe, because he could breathe in the toxic clouds in the Reverse world. As shown in the movie, he almost killed Dialga and almost ate Shaymin. And then, later in Arceus and the Jewel Of Life, he is very nice because when he saw Ash he remembers the good times and calms down and never attacked Dialga again. In Pokémon Generations, he even saved Dialga and Palkia from destroying the world and creating a new world. Arceus didn't even know where Giratina is until Giratina teleported right behind him using Shadow Force. So, oh, come on. Why is it number 4 if this awesome ghost Pokémon is that powerful?

Earth Power, Aura Sphere, Shadow Force, Draco Meteor and Outrage.
Make it learn any four from five of those moves and it is unstoppable.
Giratina is the best out of the Creation Trio and the best dragon/ghost type there is. It has control over antimatter and the Distortion World. It's even powerful enough to take on Arceus as seen in the anime versions. It's the best Legendary Pokemon ever.

My second ever event Pokemon. As a shiny. At level 100. Him and Darkrai have to be the coolest legends. Plus, he's the third bulkiest Poke and murders the other Sinnoh legends.
Manaphy used Tail Glow
Manaphy used Tail Glow
Manaphy used Baton Pass
Giratina used Sweep. It's Super Effective!
Know Manaphy can't learn B-P, but that would be awesome.

I remember when I first played Pokemon pearl and it was so cool to fight palkia at the top of Mt. Cornet. When I got platinum the same sutscene played but with Dialgo as well. When that portal opens and you go to the distortion world you feel a sense of uncertainty and fear. You finally reach the end and their he is Giratina, neither the hero or the villain he is just Giratina. Vote for Giratina

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

Dialga was the first legendary I ever got, and I can always depend on him, along with my Empoleon, to do the job at the Elite Four. Even with Cut and Rock Smash It is good because I kept Roar of Time and gave him Flash Cannon. Its defense is amazing and, being a steel-dragon type, it resists almost every type of move. The steel balances out the weaknesses that dragon has (for the most part), and the dragon typing also balances out most of the steel weaknesses. It also has amazing all-around stats and can take a hit from even Mewtwo. I can go through the Elite Four and not have it faint. I believe that Dialga should be at least in the top five.

First Dialga has 11 resistances, the most of any legendary Pokemon.
Second he has only 2 weaknesses, the second leat of any legendary Pokemon after Palkia. Palkia has only 1 weakness but has very few resistances.
Third Dialga is immune to poison which is the best immunity of all. True Giratina has 2-3 immunities depending on his form but Giratina has few resistances and many more weaknesses.
Fourth Dialga's Roar of Time is the most powerful attack and can wipe the floor with any other Dragon type Pokemon.
And fifth Dialga isn't weak to Dragon type moves which means he is literally the best and most powerful Dragon type to have aside from all the other powers which are mentioned above.
Dialga could easily beat Zekrom, Reshiram, Palkia, Giratina and even Rayquaza and Black/White Kyurem despite Black/White Kyurem having 20 stats more.

He has only two weaknesses: ground and fighting. Also, he has extreme physical defense and special attack, making his Roar of Time extremely powerful. If you were to pitch him against the legendaries, he would destroy all the legendary birds, he could possibly beat Mew depending on its move set, he would be able to beat Suicune and Raiku, but Entei would have a pretty good chance against him, he would beat Lugia (and let's not even get started on Celebi...or Manaphy... or Phione... or Jirachi)... (ran out of time, will explain more on a different post)

Dialga is pure awesomeness. I consider it to be among my favourites.

You may not have to like it, but here's my reasons:
Roar of Time. Enough said.
The only Dragon capable of being normally damaged by Fairy types and their moves.
Looks absolutely beast. Hope the Mega evolution (if it gets one) makes it look even better.
Arguably the strongest, second only to Arceus. Mainly for its ability to CONTROL TIME AT WILL.
Has the best final boss theme from the Mystery Dungeon series.
Has one of the best battle themes in the main Pokemon games.
And lastly, but most certainly not the least...
Comes from what I consider the best generation.

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

Ho-Oh is the best Fire-Type legandary ever. His Sacred Fire is his special move and can beat Lugia any day in a battle. Fire-type is the most effective in my opinion because it is stronger then so many pokemon. Also another fun fact, Suicune, Entei, and Raikou were created from Ho-oh. They were created to serve him when they were battling something evil. After that they split up, but the 3 Johto legendaries still serve their lord Ho-Oh. It's in the actual pokemon books. Anyways Ho-Oh should be In Lugia's place because Ho-oh is a MUCH better pokemon! :D

Ho-Oh is a pheonix. He can easily beat lugia with Sacred fire. His special defense is his best stats. And sacred fire has a one in a two chance to cause a burn. Burn decreases attack. So the opponent will have to rely on special attacks. And he has high special defense. So he is quiet good. He is always better than lugia. And he looks better

It's Special Defense is so high together with Calm Mind it is very hard to beat.
Combined with it's Special Attack it's a VERY powerful opponent to beat.

Mewtwo, dialga, and Palkia have nothing on this pokemon. best design of all the legendarys, great stats and all the stupid people who voted for mewtwo only did it because of the stupid anime. Also raquaza is a snake gecko.

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

Kyurem has 2 forms of all legends! Black and white kyurem was one of Nintendos best work. I don't care what those retards say about his forms having "too much detail". I Mean I side with white kyurem due to only four different weaknesses well fife technically thanks to the lame fairy type Pokemon! So his weaknesses are fighting ice rock steel and now "Fairy"? I mean really Nintendo? Dragon had already suffered enough why make it suffer more?

Normal Kyurem: Meh overall. Really crap stats for a legendary though. 600? Others have like 680!
Black Kyurem: Don't like Zekrom much, so I don't really like this guy either. He's got these big dumb gorilla arms, a bee butt tail, and some other crap. 4/10
White Kyurem: NOW we're talking! Awesome, epic, not over designed like black kyu, and since it's part Reshiram (and he's awesome) White Kyu is too 10/10

This pokemon is probably THE best pokemon in the 5th generation and I think it should have more respect.
It has just about the best special attack of any pokemon I have obtained, probably even better than my shiny level. 100 lucario, and I'm comparing him at level. 81 to that!

Kyurem is a beast... Black and white made him look EPIC! Not to brag but when fused with reshiram he can take a dragon pulse, earthquake, seismic punch to the face and not die... Plus his attack stat+fusion flare= dead mega aggaron. And when take out a steel type like that. You can take em all...

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

Primal Groudon is the 4th/3rd strongest Pokemon in the series due to its insane 770 base stats, that means that is surpasses Pokemon like Kyurem, Ho-ho, Lugia and the whole creation trio. In its primal form, it gains the type of fire, which neutralizes Groudon's weaknesses (Grass and Ice), it also has a ability that negates water moves, meaning it's only weakness is ground. This Pokemon's insane flexibility into teams and right stat setup makes it arguably better than Kyogre, one of the main factors is speed, you WANT to devalue Groudon's speed, it's physical defenses and EVed special defense/ special attack make up for that, Kyogre doesn't have the same benefits for devalued speed. With the right setup, Groudon can survive an Ice-Punch from a Deoxys (which is basically a glass cannon).

In Ubers, one of Pokemon's most competitive teams, it's the only Pokemon ranked S-Tier (God tier). The reason is that it keeps check of so many Pokemon due to it's stats, and yes, it's speed ...more

Primal Groudon is a god in competitive. With only one weakness and access to amazing coverage moves, even moves that could allow him to beat Primal Kyogre and/or Mega Rayquaza. Primal Groudon is so good that he is the only pokemon to be banned from the competitive group WHERE YOU HACK (hackmons). Let that sink in, being banned from a hacking format... that's how broken primal groudon is. He is a must have on most Uber-Tier teams out there. Overall, one of the best if not the best competitive pokemon out there. Definitely deserves to be top 5.

In terms of anime/lore wise, this should be a little bit higher on the list. In game statistics however, it should be in the top 5. Groudon's has a wide varieties of moves it can learn through leveling up, move tutoring, and TMs, making it rather diverse in competitive play and uneasy to read. Groudon's stats should also to be considered as well (well, in primal), with that crazy high 720 base stats (surpassing lord Arceus for god's sake) and having a 180 in attack and a 150 in special attack can make it quite a powerful and dangerous mixed attacker, increasing the diversity of it. With it's primal reversion state, it gained a new typing and ability, fire/ground and Desolate Land, not only does it get a 1.5 stab bonus in it's fire type attacks, it's also neutralized and resist a crap ton of effective to super effective types against it, grass and ice are neutralized and water is nullified due to Desolate Land canceling them out. Groudon is considered one of the best, if not, the best ...more

Omega ruby was the first Pokémon game I owned. When I first played through the game I didn't catch Groudon because I didn't care for his design that much but I later went back and after having him on my team for awhile he quickly became my all time favorite Pokémon surpassing even Rayquaza!

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

Has the potential to destroy the entire dimension that houses our heroes, and causes massive destruction when it battles with its time controlling enemy Dialga. Worshiped as a deity, it is tied with it's creation trio counterparts, Dialga and Giratina, as the second most powerful pokemon in the entire universe, behind Arceus, due to its massive spatial powers, and reigns over entire populated pocket dimensions, which he builds and destroys within his own dimension.

Palkia is my favorite legendary ever. He may not be as strong as Arceus; nor is he as memorable as Mew and Mewtwo; he isn't as popular as Rayquaza or Lugia; but he is still one of the best out there anyways. He only has a single weakness -unlike Giratina and Dialga-, and his signature move Spacial Rend, though not as powerful as Rawr of Time, doesn't leave him open for a turn, making it a more conveniant attack to use. Even though Palkia isn't as defensive; it just feels like you can get a lot done with Palkia. In Übers; Palkia has always been my best star for some reason. I love Palkia...

The Pokedex states that Palkia's every breath makes space more stable, which means that it's technically immortal because its death/destruction would cause all of space and the universe to disappear from existence. It can create or destroy as many universes as it wants, whenever it wants, so it could create a universe where it is more powerful than any other being.

Lol Palkia is one of the strongest dragon-type Pokemon.
All of you fanboys are choosing for your favorites which
Is quite stupid. The reason Palkia is strong is because
It has only two weaknesses, 3rd fastest Pokemon (first are Latios and Latias, super tanky, and has a special attack of 150! So he technically is strongest dragon type. If it attacks first the dragon types would get one banged or if it survives Palkia is still tanky so it'll survive. Now it's still slower than Latios and Latios but those guys suck! Therefore Palkia is a powerhouse.

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

Electric and dragon, the best two types in the game.

Electric has one weakness, ground, and can destroy flying and water types.

Dragon can resist water, fire, grass and electric, so that's all the starter types and the number 1 best type in the game.
Dragon is weak to, fairy (god dam jigglypuff), ice and dragon. Since zekrom is a legendary, it has amazing speed and can destroy a dragon before the opponent can even attack.

Zekrom looks awesome, has a really good movepool and is made of the best types in the game. Definitely the best legendary Pokemon!

Probably my favorite Pokemon of all time. Love this guy so much. My first Pokemon game I played was Pokemon White. My grandma got it for me and I instantly fell in love with it. Zekrom to me looked amazing and I could not wait to get him at the end of the game. He stood by me for so long, that it was hard to move to X and Y since I grinded to get him to level 100. But, I figured out how to get him in Omega Ruby/Alpha Sapphire and traded him over from there. I love Pokemon Black and White and will always remember Zekrom as the best Pokemon.

Zekrom is together with giratina one of my favorite I don't have a real favo because there are to much awesome pokemon But I have chosen zekrom because giratina is higher on the list. But I may be the only one here that likes Black kyurem better then white that is because Zekrom looks so epic and he is so strong he could sweep pokemons in one hit easily. Zekrom really needs more popularity

He is a force to be reckoned with I think, Especially when he gets combined with kyurem. Well you might not like my opinion but that is what legendary I think is cool, along with its counterpart, Reshiram.

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

How is it that Yveltal is not up there? It's a powerful Pokemon to begin with. starting bulbapedia facts, this Pokemon wing span is bigger than lugia's it's the second largest legend! Also in Pokedex entry it takes life it's like the hades of Pokemon! Plus the overall design of the Pokemon is just intimidating by all means. Now to is typing and special move, honestly I think ghost flying would work much better based on the description of it that just my opinion, now the move oblivion wing is like the flying type giga drain! It's awesome! Not to mention it can learn psychic, dragon pulse, I believe ice beam, and for all you lugia your probably going to hate me for saying this but I think Yveltal can kick Lugia's butt anytime of the week

Yveltal is so awesome. It can learn a lot of moves like sucker punch, hyper beam, shadow claw, dragon pulse, focus blast, dragon rush, sky attack, phantom force, etc. For me, it's the coolest and my favorite! It is cool as well, with those wings and it is the destruction pokemon which is so my kind o pokemon. It has signature move oblivion wing which is good enough and can turn any pokemon or humans to stone, which is highly indestructible.

This guy is amazing. Not only does he look AMAZING he also has a great typing - Dark and Flying. On top of that he has great moves like Oblivion Wing. Does a crap ton of damage and recovers three-quarters of damage dealt. I have used this guy competitively and this guy is a TOTAL sweeper! Enough Said...

Yveltal is overall a boss in battle! But if your a person who only used an action replay to make him shiny, how does it make it "unfair"? It's not changing stats, hp attack or Anything, just simplily shiny. His oblivion wing is off the charts next to the new dragon acent move! It damages the opponent Pokemon then gives you the hp! That's hard to top rayquaza, your move.

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

Only number 22? Reshiram has a fantastic special attack stat and learns moves appropriate for its amazing Special Attack. It turns into another Pokemon and when it emerges from the Light Stone you can just look at it like it's a god!

And for all of you who didn't know, Zoroark is NOT a legendary!

There is no reason that Zekrom should ever be placed higher than Reshi. Reshiram is an elegant fiery dragon, one of whom has a strong moveset. While Unova is a lot of people's least favorite region, everyone must admit to the sheer power and beautiful design of this vast white dragon.

Did I mention that its' fused form with Kyurem looks amazing?

It has got it own game pokemon white unlike others it has got a good signature move fusion flare and it has got a dangerous move set this should be the top 8. Arceus, mewtwo, mew deoxys, zekrom, reshiram, rayquaza, darkrai, genesect, kyogre, lugia, groudon, HO oh, girantina, dialga and palkia

Why is reshiram lower than zekrom? It is my favourite legendary pokemon. It's blue flare and fusion flare can actually kill most of the pokemon. Its type combination is also pretty unique due to the fact that can resist ice and fairy type unlike zekrom.

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

Kyogre is really cheap because of his combination of water spout and drizzle. What really makes him cheap is the choice scarf. Water spout is his best move, but thunder is really good too because it never misses. I also teach him sheer cold and ice beam. The guy who taught him calm mind was an idiot because with my strategy you can usually one shot any Pokemon. Kyogre was actually the first legendary Pokemon I ever caught.

To the person that said Kyogre can beat Rayquaza,

It is actually about a 50-50 chance because Rayquaza with Life Orb 252 Attack Evs, 252 Speed Evs, and 4 Attack Evs and outrage is normal. A normal Kyogre has 252 Special Attack 252 Speed and 4 Special Defense. The rayquaza above outspends and if it uses outrage, it has roughly a 50% chance to OHKO. If it doesn't OHKO, then Kyogre wins with Ice Beam. I sometimes run a focus sash on rayquaza to prevent from death by ice attacks b/c rayquaza's offenses are already OP and it doesn't really need a life orb. With a focus sash, any rayquaza can OHKO with 2 outrages.

Kyogre is great because its full power water spout drizzle 150SA STAB(same type attack bonus)=a move double the power of explosion
Move set
-water spout
-surf
-thunder
-ice beam
Item-leftovers/choice specs
Nature-modest
Ability-drizzle(duh)
Surf is there to back up water spout when Kyogre gets hurt. Thunder has perfect accuracy in rain so it's a good move. Add in ice beam and you have a set that can OHKO anything but Blissey and shedinja. Item choice depends on whether you want Kyoge's health back up or raw power at the cost of being locked in.

I was 2 years old when 3rd gen came out. But I was still watching pokemon. Anyway Kyogre is A BOSS when it comes to battling it can defeat any legendary pokemon with ease. Also Kyogre saved a manaphy. SO CUTE! Finally, Kyogre is my favorite legendary pokemon because it is my favorite type, animal, and pokemon design!

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

Awesome way to show off 6 gen Pokemon. 3/4 of my wins have been sweeps by Xerneas, good moves it can learn, for example right now the move I have taught it it are moonblast (really good fairy type move to have) horn leech (which can be helpful in situations) giga impact (a really good normal type move to learn along with hyper beam) and the one electric type move that paralyzes it. (someone remind me what it is called. )

I love using Xerneas cause it just kicks butt. In my opinion it is way better than Yveltal and Zygarde cause it can basically kill them in one shot. It's only weaknesses are poison and steel, and it can cover those with close combat/focus blast and psychic. Could use better speed though... And a better move than geomancy...

How is Yveltal above Xerneas? Xerneas beat Yveltal anyways and it is a Fairy type making it only weak to steel and poison types which you should be able to cover with your other Pokemon. And it is the life Pokemon. This Pokemon can give external life to anyone including most likely itself making it unbeatable.

Reminds me of Cosmos in Dissidia 012 Final Fantasy. The pokemon of life, elegant and beautiful. Powerful also! It shines as bright as the apparent magnitude of Sirius -1.46. It is probably the most beautiful video game character in the history, even more beautiful than Tifa Lockhart, Yuna or Lightning.

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

My favourite Pokemon trio is by far the legendary dogs, the ideas behind them are amazing so it was difficult to pick just one of the dogs, but I chose Entei as he is seen as the leader. Please vote for Entei, Raikou or Suicune! Have you ever noticed that Entei is like a super buff Flareon, Raiko is an overpowered Jolteon and Suicune is an awesome Vaporeon, gets you thinking that maybe the legendary dogs came from eevees.

"Entei is totally better than latias"
While latias is ou and entei is uu. Also, they work differently. Latias is a special wall with good special attack while entei is a psyical tank. Latias can play a better role than entei, but you really can't pinpoint 2 very different pokemon.

I mean hi all the time of booking your rental runs as smoothly as possible to get the cheapest prices on the phone. Includes microphone on your website and the surrounding area. We will be able 50th anniversary flowers

Entei was so sweet to that little girl in the movie where this girl lost her father because of the unknown. He protected her and OH MY GOD I JUST LOVE HIM the first time I saw that one movie, I cried when he was forced to go back and had a dream that he became my dad O. O I know, creepy but I will always love Entei. I mean, yeah he kidnapped Ash' s mom but that was just to make her happy! :D

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

Yep, my favorite legendary is articuno, and also my second legendary ever caught.

Standing next to zapdos being the first one I caught.

Now I know about stealth rocks, they ruin everything.

But not Pokemon like volcarona and talonflame.

And I think it's the same thing here.

Now most of you will say mind cold or mind reader plus sheer cold sets.

Well I don't use that set, I use a more defensive set.

Ice beam/Roost/Hurricane/protect.

It's not a bad set.

And if you don't like that, hail with snow cloak might be your style.

It's ability is pressure, which in the long run, is annoying, especially with 5pp moves on your opponent like fire blast.

And it will take a hit.105/125 on defense/sp. Defense is great, and it's hp is 90, so it's fine there as well.

Also thanks to hurricane, it has a special flying move finally.

So don't worry about that area.

It also has ancient power and water pulse if ...more

It may not be the best legendary but it keeps as one of my favorite legendaries. I once had to defeat Gary in Pokemon red with only my level 52 Articuno and with only 2 hyper potions (was my first time going to the Pokemon league and didn't know much); somehow I won that time.

It can destroy all the Pokemon on this list because with it's "mind reader" it's moves never miss and since "sheer cold" misses a lot but kills instantly, it kills Pokemon in one hit without missing!

Actually people do not think that articuno can compete with Pokemon like groudon, but it can. It has powerful attacks like blizzard etc. from which it can defeat Pokemon like groudon.

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

Ash: Pikachu, let's find a legendary.
Pikachu: Pika Pi!
A wild Suicune appeared.
Ash: Oh great! My first legendary! Once I catch this Pokemon, I'll finally beat Gary! OK, Pikachu, Thunder Bolt!
Pikachu: Pika-chu!
Suicune dodge it. Then it used Bubble beam.
Ash: DODGE IT! Use Discharge!
Pikachu: Pika!
Suicune hit it back with Bubble Beam, Then it used Toxic and poisoned Pikachu. Ash didn't have any potions and then Pikachu was defeated.
Ash: NOOO!
Ash ran to the Pokemon Centre to get Pikachu fixed. Nurse Joy fixed him and after that, they went back to that place where they battled Suicune, but Suicune must have ran off, meaning that they were to never, ever see Suicune again.

Suicune is one of the strongest land Pokemon ever. Its special defense and defense can back it up in a battle against others. Even back then, when suicune was in crystal version, suicune was the strongest in that game; it's not only strong defensively, but beautiful too.

I love it, it's so magical and its shiny is the best! Its looks so much like a pure pokemon, and that's what its meant to be like! A pure crystal clear magical water dog. I just think legendaries should be purely what they represent. Like Suicune being magic water dog. or Jirachi looking just like a wish pokemon. I love it so much and how well its designed

This is just my opinion but suicune should be in the number 5's AT LEAST. He is a tank and very rare to heartgold. That's why I'm getting soul silver to get suicune -. -. I think Shaymin and Suicune can make more legendaries...

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

My first legendary sweeps through the rest of Let's go eevee. Still incredibly useful even now that I'm champion.

It's electric and flying...so it's only weaknesses are ice and rock, which honestly aren't very Common in competitive

Probably one of the coolest looking, as well as the most powerful Pokemon there are!

Is he really the fastest land pokemon compared to rapidash? (in original series pokedex it says that it is the fastest pokemon)

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

Moltres has really good stats. He may need a bit of help against articuno, but he also has really epic moves. Use Fire blast and you'll see what I mean. In my opinion, The three are the best legendaries ever.

Dude it looks like those Squawkin chickens that caught on fire... of course it's my favorite Legendary

Moltres is the best Pokemon of all! no one beats my level hundred he is sooo good just test him! never give him/her a bad rating!

I like team valor and he is a fire bird. How is zapdos and articuno better

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

Shoot its lunar lady! Wait I brought my magnezone! Hmm... Well I lighting bolt for you!

Lunala is a beutiful and cool Pokémon, and I love bats and nighttime. Lunala is my third favorite Pokémon, number two being naganadel and Togekiss as my favorite. Even though Lunala has a 4x weakness to dark and ghost, I love Lunala to pieces. Although I love so many legendary Pokémon like Palkia, Articuno, and Cobalion, Lunala will always be special to me.

I thought sun moon wasn't even out yet!

My personal favorite. This was my legendary in my first ever pokemon playthrough in Moon. Nebby is my baby

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

I just love latias. It's cute and my favourite legendary as well as latios! Awesome type combination dragon/psychic, pretty sick moves and love how latias can turn invisible.

How the hell did one of the best Pokemon in the Pokemon universe end up here. Latias is amazing and a really cute Pokemon but it seems you don't know what good Pokemon are

Latias is cute
Strong
And better than mewtwo. And I'm only saying this because mewtwo is overrated.

Did you see The Latias and Latios movie it's cause it says it's the protecter of the land somehow but latias is really cool!

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

It is in the OU tier and suicune and entei are in the UU tier. That should tell you on it's own, but I really hate how overrated entei is. I wish that people voting would actually be playing competitively, or at least knew what they were talking about. And don't even get me started on charizard...

This is one of the fastest land pokemon ever. Very strong and an excellent hunter. By the way you might have mist it but the last mystery gift on pokemon heart gold and soul silver was a shiney Raikou. Have a look and see if it is still avalible.

Raikou is a straight up badass he has speed, attack, sp definitely, definitely, and sp atk. And he can beat suicune and entei together, he's also to damn badass to have a movie if he did he would destroy ash and the world.

Come on people. Raise him higher than 22. Such and awesome Pokemon.

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

Dear thetoptens.com,
Zygarde should be second place because he has the power of both Xerneas and Yveltal, he can protect the whole pokemon world from destruction with his power. I'm saying he's a male because all the kalos main legendaries are male (Xerneas, Yveltal, and Zygarde). I know everything about pokemon because I'm the best pokemon trainer in the universe.

Sincerely,
Anonymous.

Gee, Zygarde deserves more credit. Take a look at it. It 's cool. It's weird it,s... Weak. Why make it weak. I bet when Pokemon Z comes out Zygarde will get a mega evolution or something like that to make him at least as strong as Xerneas and Yveltal.

It's not very good for a legendary with a base stat of just 600. It would be better to use Garchomp. Let's hope that Pokemon Z turns it into this generation's Kyurem by bulking it up with some badass new forms!

I think Zygarde is best because hey, who doesn't LOVE going into a cave, just wandering around and finding a legendary? Zygarde may be pretty weak, but there are 2 new Pokemon sequels in Japan, Pokemon XZ and Pokemon YZ. If those games come to America, then this could possibly make Zygarde stronger than Mewtwo! As in the two new Pokemon game names, you might have already figured out that legendary YZ is a Yveltal + Zygarde = YZ legendary and Xerneas + Zygarde = XZ legendary. That might not make sense right now, but basically, Zygarde left behind two plants, holding its power, a tree ( Xerneas in Pokemon X ) and a flower ( Yveltal in Pokemon Y ). When reuniting with one of the two plants, ( obviously in Pokemon XZ the tree and in Pokemon YZ the flower ). You get the new amazingly awesome legendaries, (look up pictures of legendaries XZ and YZ! )

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

When you battle groudon in omega ruby, send out latios because you are resistant to fire and you have levitate so ground moves won't effect you. Also resists water unlike Latias in Alpha Sapphire.

It was so sad how that Latios died in Pokémon Heroes because of Annie and Oakley. Call me a wimp but I watched when I was a little kid and I CRIED.
Years later I end up with an Eon Ticket and it takes me to Southern Island again so I can catch Latios. The Eon duo is again reunited.

Latios is the coolest pokemon ever! It has high attack, and it's a psychic dragon pokemon, two of the strongest types in pokemon, and it is blue and it is so cool looking it should be musch higher on the list!

I like blue better than red. Tragic death in it's movie though.
