Everyone is a monster in the lower tiers... except charizard - IncineratingGamingPoke

5 Serperior Serperior

With Contrary as its Hidden Special Ability, what more could you ask for? - HeavyDonkeyKong

6 Sceptile Sceptile

In double battles it can be really helpful if you bring it out with an electric pokemon and mega evolve it. Because while the electric uses discharge for example sceptiles ability lightening rod means that it is immune to electric attacks and whenever it is hit by one its special attack will rise great for a sweep

Common it's sceptile

7 Infernape Infernape

Blaze, and Iron Fist are both great abilities for Infernape. - HeavyDonkeyKong

8 Blastoise Blastoise Blastoise, known in Japan as Kamex, is a Water–type Pokémon species in Nintendo and Game Freak's Pokémon franchise.

Torrent and Rain Dish are both great abilities for Non Mega Blastoise, and For Mega Blastoise, Mega Launcher is a great ability for Mega Blastoise! - HeavyDonkeyKong

9 Swampert Swampert

This thing is so underrated I bet it can one hit ko most pokemon in the rain

Mega swampert has base 150 attack. combine that with 140 speed under rain due to swift swim and overall good bulk makes it an amazing pokemon under rain (still usable without though). Definitely an underrated pokemon who deserves to be on the list.

10 Typhlosion Typhlosion

The Contenders

11 Litten Litten


12 Delphox Delphox

Incineroar has a diverse move set and a great stat diversity - IncineratingGamingPoke

16 Torracat Torracat

My favorite litten evolution. Also, this evolution is cute

17 Primarina Primarina

Excellent typing with water and fairy type in addition to a wide movepool and amazing stats. This pokemon is in my main competitive team with choice specs, assault vest, and primarium z. Pokemon such as Blaziken and Greninja normally need HA to be good, but this pokemon does absolutely well without its HA Liquid Voice. Primarina for the win
