Top Ten Strongest Fighting Pokemon

The Top Ten

1 Lucario Lucario is a Pokémon species in Nintendo and Game Freak's Pokémon franchise. Created by Ken Sugimori, Lucario first appeared as a central character in the film Pokémon: Lucario and the Mystery of Mew, and later appeared in the video games Pokémon Diamond and Pearl and subsequent sequels, also appearing ...read more.

For anyone voting on mega lucario instead, I think this kinda sorta counts as mega lucario. Anyway, it's mega is a solid uber, and knows some amazing priority moves only helped by adaptability.

OK. If you think Lucario isn't the best fighting type, think again. It's got a mega evolution that looks BEAST. It's also very useful in battles. Lucario itself was good and a threat, but with mega, this thing is a mean, killing machine. Try it out in battle. It's got a good movepool and is a threat to many Pokemon. LUCARIO/MEGA LUCARIO MORE THAN DESERVES TO BE THE BEST FIGHTING TYPE IN THE HISTORY OF Pokemon.

Great pokemon!
Has great speed and power!
A flexible pokemon!
Knows many moves and greater of all its ability to know opponent's next move.

Kicks butt with aura sphere, dragon pulse, close combat, and extreme speed

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

Lucario has way too many weaknesses and is too slow. Blaziken has speed boost and access to Flare Blitz.

Blaziken gets access to some of the strongest fire/fighting moves like, Flare burst, Blaze kick, Sky uppercut, and Brave Bird. Like the person above me, he is unbeatable with that speed boost, so make sure that it is your top priority to get if you want to be an optimal blaziken player.

Why is infernape above blaziken? He is boss. With blaze kick, sky uppercut, blast burn and brave bird blaziken should be one top of the list. Plus he has a mega evolution!

Blaziken is the strongest more than lucario 4 sure lucario can't jump kick a spiraling flame wheel, does not have a cool mega evolution, and does not have op attacks like blaziken does, of course this is just my opinion

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

Being a fire and fighting type gives infernape the huge amount of advantage wins it collects. Plus he can learn powerful fighting type moves like close combat. Mine knows flamethrower, fire blast, overheat and my favorite, close combat.

If infernape gets a mega evolution he will be the best fighting type with maybe the exception of mewtwo x. He can learn a wide variety of move from fire to fighting to ground and more. He's one of my favorite starters and has a really good speed stat

I love this Pokemon so much it was the first Pokemon I ever had it could learn really strong moves and destroy everything I have amazing memories with him

He is a beast he can wipe out Lucario's mega form since he is still fighting-steel and he is weak against fire witch means infernape would and will knock him out with flame charge fire punch fire spin

4 Machamp Machamp, known in Japan as Kairiky, is a Pokémon species in Nintendo and Game Freak's Pokémon franchise.

You think this guy is a joke? Think again! With no guard, this Hulk can wreck your team with dynamic punch. Why? Because it will hit every single time THANKS TO NO GUARD. Oh you're saying ghosts? THINK AGAIN. Machamp has ThunderPunch, Ice Punch, Earthquake and so on. Its shiny is green, so make it the hulk if you get one that's shiny!

Machamp is so good. He is also so strong

No Guard + Dynamic Punch = Destruction

Machamp is pretty awesome

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

Give it a focus sash, cause of the lack of speed and the lack of defense, it can easily get OHKO'd. Once breloom hangs onto its focus sash, use spore. The opponent will switch or just be asleep. Meanwhile do a swords dance. And after that you are ready to kill the face of EVERYTHING. 40 base power of mach punch, add the technician, 60 power. Add the stab bonus, 80 power. Add the swords dance bonus, 160 power. Add your attack stat to that. Nothing can take care of this bad boy. But remember that flying types kill breloom. You don't have enough power to kill them, so should be used after the flying types are dead.

This guy is op spore your paralyzed, spore your poisoned, spore your asleep. Breloom also has attack power higher than arceus and super stretched arms that can be real useful in life. Also I like mushrooms because they come in different shapes and sizes and this guy is also a dinosaur. Poor guy wish he wasn't so underrated

Have you tried technician-boosted mach punch? It's one of the strongest first-moves ever! Plus, he can learn SPORE. That's it. Game over.

Yup he's the very best fighting type and guess what? My breloom creamed my sisters lucario in 3 HITS

6 Medicham

Two words. Pure Power.
Give this guy psycho cut and drain punch, and you have a self-sustaining wrecking machine.

A good combo of fighting and psychic. Unstoppable.

Can mega evolve

Sorry, mienshau is just fighting. But medicham is a psychic fighting people. Psychic fighting

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

I choose hawlucha because he is just awesome and he is extremely powerful and he has a very unique battle style which make him very entertaining to watch.

One of my favorite Pokemon. Also love its character and voice in the anime. Team Hawlucha!

He's literally the Pokemon version of sin cara

Because he's cute and he's my favorite

8 Toxicroak

He was toxic in fortnite to my dead dog. He was murdered by Toxicroak and I was happy and chill because that dog pooped in my pillow and he made a troll face after I laid on it.

Deadly as heck. The big problem: quad weak to psychic. Other wise, not bad.

My favourite pokemon and deadly as hell if the only probably is quad weak to psychic

This one is best because for some reason this Pokemon is best suited for me, Lucario maybe the best doesn't gets boring sometimes to use it. I voted for this because I just love it so much so bye boo.

9 Mienshao

Psychic fighting people. Psychic fighting.

Mienshao has a very nice design and is good in battle too so it is my favorite fighting type other than Lucario.

Want it to have a mega

Can't mega evolve boo

10 Gallade Gallade, known in Japan as Erureido, is a Pokémon species in Nintendo and Game Freak's Pokémon franchise.

Gallade should at least be first cause he has the strongest type fairy and he has a stronger mega

It is the best,give him a close combat and ice beam and you got a destroyer

A perfect combination of Gracefulness, beauty, intelligence and fury. Its Mega-evolve form makes it a agile, quick, yet elegant fighter from the heavens. (Its attack stat after mega evolving is 195. Yes.) To me, he is only inferior against Lucario (Lucario is the best. Yeah! ) but his sheer beauty and wisdom compensates what he lacks at health or other low stats. Nevertheless, he is one of the best in the fighting realm of the Pokemon Universe.

He is so awesome and the new ORAS mega gallade looks epic. Gardevoir and Gallade can now truly marry each other

The Contenders

11 Heracross Heracross, known in Japan as Heracros, is a Pokémon species in Nintendo and Game Freak's Pokémon franchise.

Okay but his defense stat lacks and one flying move and he's out cold

This pokemon also has access to bug moves which removes the psychic weakness, it is the BEST physical non-legendary attacker when mega evolved. Who is better than this?

Heracross is a very effective Pokemon... Its because for its flying. And its judging power is also very good...

Hera, Hera, Heracross! Smart and shiny, it's the bug boss! Love it, need it, Heracross!

12 Conkeldurr

Often ridiculed and called a machamp clone, this gutsy monster will pummel anyone who mocks it to the ground. Because burn orb+ guts+ facade. Play showdown.

A shame people don't recognize Conkeldurr even after it took Machamp's mantle as the quintessential fighting type starting Gen 5. This guy defines fighting types in their raw physical form--no tricks, no relying on other STAB. It's OU and very useful against CHALK. Of course I don't expect people here to see that because they'd rather have flash and style over substance.

Conkeldurr is all around reliable with massive attacks, respectably physical bulk and reliable recovery through Drain Punch.

It's got reliable recovery with Drain Punch (egg move), it learns Stone Edge to deal with annoying flying types such as Talonflame, Poison Jab (use TM) to deal with Fairy types, and Payback (use TM) or Knock Off (move Tutor) to deal with Psychic types, with its low speed giving Payback maximum benefit. It has good physical bulk with pretty good HP and godly Attack, and Guts boosting that more. With it being able to prove its worth and destroy Machamp, giving it the title of essential Fighting Pokemon, how is Machamp higher? Side note from competitive usefulness, Machamp looks like a mutated WWE wrestler, and Conkeldurr looks like a Pokemon. For all you design-biased people, you have no excuse. This Pokemon is godly compared to most other non-legends.

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

Too bad he doesn't get good fighting type moves.

Poliwrath gets hypnosis and can be taught bulk up. That is a great strategy while u put the opposing Pokemon to sleep and get stronger

It is worth to power it up

Goes from poliwhirl

14 Mega Mewtwo X

Statistically he is the best and he also has one of the biggest move pools in the game

Mega Mewtwo x is the most powerful fighting type Pokemon.

My most powerful stab physical fighting move is Brick Break. Yay!

His card is definitely the best fighting type ever

15 Hariyama

High variability of moves, including Surf and Earthquake. To finish, there's Vital Throw, a powerful attack that never misses.

Seriously man, Hariyama is BEAST, I can whip a Lucario in just a matter of seconds

Seriously man Hariyama is BEAST I can whip a lucario in just a matter of seconds

Hariyama is the second strongest fighting pokemon.

16 Mega Lucario

Statistically mega lucario has the third highest stats of all fighting Pokemon. In addition it has a wide variety of moves. Only mega Mewtwo x and mega blaziken are stronger. Lucario could beat mega blaziken with it's ground attacks and mega Mewtwo with dark attacks.

Why is mega lucario so low compared to ordinary lucario? They are just the same thing but a mega evolution is better then it's prior stage except mega garchomp. This Pokemon can learn so many damaging moves. He is very fast so he could out speed a lot of Pokemon and because of his high sp attack and ordinary attack he usually beats up his opponent before they get a hit. Don't worry if he gets hit because he has good defense so don't expect him to faint in one hit.

Why not just incorporate it with regular lucario. They are basically the same thing

Why is it's pre form number one? It makes no sense also with the move set aura sphere, brick break, close combat, and extreme speed, this thing recks everything.

17 Hitmonlee

This was my the second fighting type I got ever. Next to machamp. But I'm not going to be a nostalgia blind idiot who thinks Charizard is the best ever or something. His attack ano so. Defense is really good so he won't die to something like a psychic sometimes it can even be stab phychic and I still se it surviving. And it's speed isn't great, but then unburdened happened, and now he's just as fast as he hits hard. And don't forget he knows endure and with endure comes reversal unburden. Or if you want to attack without having a lichi berry on, you can just have a focus sash and do it like that while getting an attack in. But he has more tricks up his sleeve, but this is all I can say before making a review off of a Pokemon. Also he's named after Bruce Lee, that's a plus.

I don't see why people doesn't like this guy. I found him reliable and incredibly strong. I wouldn't say he's the best, but he my favourite Pokemon!

My favorite Pokemon, he was great in battle and it's a shame that he's this low compared to Lucario, who is, in my humble opinion, useless in battle.

Hitmonlee's hi jump kick can faint any it is the best fighting type Pokemon

18 Sawk

Sock! Sawk! Are you KIDDING ME I know it's enemy was Throh, and Sawk+Throh (which is even worse and sounds like throw)=Throw the sock away

He is generally pretty good when it comes to battling. If your wondering how to counter him his best matchup for an epic fight is probably Throh.

Chopping fist of DOOM!, !

Best fighting type ever

19 Primeape

Primeape is fully efficient Pokemon known for its anger if it gets angry then the opponent should know what is going to happen...

I remember when Ashes primeape beat the whole tournament and beat up team rocket! It was hilarious.

Primeape is a fighting Pokemon introduced in generation 1. He is also known as PIG MONKEY Pokemon.

Ash's Primeape had defeat a Hitmonlee in the episode the punchy Pokemon

20 Scrafty

It may not look like it, but its really defensive, and it can dish damage as well

Fighting and dark covers up against psychic type

Can sweep three of the elites easily

From the black and white movies

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

Lol joke! But please bring it on top 10 it would be funny

Ditto is the best fighting type Pokemon in all of history

I Love you ditto you are the best pokemon in the world

He can transform I wish I was him and munchlax

22 Greninja Greninja is a Water/Dark type Pokemon introduced in Gen 6. It is the evolved form of Frogadier and the final evolve 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 the the ability Protean, which changes ...read more.

Awesome Pokemon.When you use water attacks, you can hit more than one time.

Uh, I don't know about you but Greninja isn't fighting it's water. Check your facts before you post. It's actually WEAK to fighting

He is strong and a good fighter and is also very fast

Hey, guys... Greninja is water and dark--- not fighting.

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

I always pick Tepig as a starter because of rollout and all his fire type moves, he wrecks some gyms, but since he's a fighting type and fire type, he'll get ko'd easily

It is a kick ass. It rocks

It gets its add kicked more like. I really can't stand this pokemon.

It is THE best fighting type in black/white and black/white 2 and is awesome in VI gen.

Before him is pignite and before pignite is tepig

24 Mega Lopunny

While loppuny might be a lame furry bait in pu ( I like it anywhays), it's mega is a showstopper. Fake out and last resort, combined with ghost hitting scrappy make it a nightmare in 1v1. Scrappy and a good moveset also secured it's place on ou as a physical sweeper.

It is a normal type not a fighting type duh

Broken. Its basically broken. Use fake out the first turn to mega evolve without any problems, then high jump kick and return are just op with the stab, also what makes it super good is the scrappy ability, its anti-mega sableye.Also ice punch and thunderpunch are good coverage moves.

Actually normal-fighting

25 Arceus Arceus is a legendary Pokémon from the Pókemon series. He first appeared in the 18th Pokémon movie alongside other Legendary Pokémon.

Arceus is the strongest Pokemon

ARCEUS! He should be number one on every list.

Best Pokemon because he used code lazar!

With his judgment attack it will kill every Pokemon
