Top Ten Strongest Dark Pokemon

The Top Ten

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

All your nightmares... Praise Darkrai... Praise your nightmares...
They all come from... Darkrai...
I am joking around! Haha! Darkrai is something you don't want somebody else to have! This guy is not happy!
In the anime it gave a good fight but lost to Dialga and Palkia!

I don't know why, I just never liked it. - Swiftfrost

Its good but team Cresselia! Dreams that can over take nightmares but darkrai is also good for his move sit and how he's post to be the dark side of the moon while cresselia is the light side it's the lunar duo who can be mad

No doubt this is the best dark type. Set up with Dark Void to put your opponents to sleep, then use Dream Eater/ Any attacks you think is good. This thing is just a good pokemon. I love it, great design and great in almost every way possible. Use it the right way, and you will win almost every battle.

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

Tyranitar is just an overall powerhouse and just keeps getting stronger as the generations progress

He is a beast speed may not be the best bet every thing else is awesome

Tyranitar is unaffected by sandstorms and his ability to learn moves like aerial ace makes fighting types lose their strength

The King of all It's basically the equivalent of Godzilla

3 Umbreon Umbreon, known in Japan as Blacky, is a Pokémon species in Nintendo and Game Freak's Pokémon franchise.

Umbreon is a strong Pokemon that can have strong moves such as shadow ball and he can be also defensive against Ghost type Pokemon and psychic type Pokemon like espeon.

Umbreon has strong defense, strong special defense and an string HP! He should be number 1#!

It's super cute! Has very good defense and plus, an awesome shiny.

It's so cool and its in Gary's team

4 Houndoom

Seriously. This is HOUNDOOM! Dark and death. I get that darkri is above but he wears a SKELETON!


5 Honchkrow

Really useful in a dark type party, as it enables the player to use fly, also removes the weakness to fighting attacks, that most dark types succumb to, due to it's flying type.

Honchkrows ability to disorient your opponents Pokemon and give your Pokemon immunity to sleep effects and confusion make them very useful

6 Drapion

He has two dark types,along with hone claws.He is the best.

7 Zoroark Zoroark is a dark type Pokémon species in Nintendo and Game freak's Pokémon franchise. It evolves from zorua at level 30.

He can change into any Pokemon
