Top Ten Strongest Kanto Pokemon

In your opinion what are the strongest Pokemon in the Kanto region

The Top Ten

1 Dragonite Dragonite Dragonite is a character from the Pokémon franchise by Nintendo. It is a dragon and flying type Pokémon created in the first generation of Pokémon. It is a Pseudo Legendary Pokémon.

Dragonite is amazing my is level 92 and decimates everything. Plus it doesn't get destroyed by stealth rock like a certain dragon looking Pokemon we all know.

He is basically a legend. He has got legend stats (600) plus and his dragon attacks are the best

I'll choose dragonite over Charizard every time

It can do almost anything u want it to do

2 Mewtwo 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.

I'm not much of a mewtwo fan myself, but I have to admit, he is the probably the toughest 1st gen Pokemon from gens 1-5 and DEFINITELY the strongest kanto Pokemon in gen 6, with the inclusion of it's mega evolutions, which have it ascend Arceus as the Pokemon with the highest base stat total. Oh and by the way, to piss of you ridiculous charizard fans, Mewtwo is WAY stronger than charizard, which isn't even a strong Pokemon.

Mewtwo is total badass I really love him he's the third strongest pokemon ever he was created by science to be the ultimate pokemon even thought now days he's the third strongest he's pretty strong to deal with he has a special place in my heart

Mewtwo has the strongest base stat total of all Kanto Pokemon, and in MEGA Form it is the strongest Pokemon of all time. Sorry Charizard fans, but Charizard only has base stats of 534. (Did I ever say SWAMPERT HAS 535?! )

Mewtwo is the only pokemon are can use a Z-move for one of his moves in his moveset, shattered psyche is the most destructive pokemon move EVER! even than the OHKO moves, I dunno, shattered psyche is hit 2-3 times if hit 2-3 times.

3 Gyarados Gyarados Gyarados is a Pokémon species in Nintendo and Game Freak's Pokémon franchise. It evolves from one of the weakest Pokemon, Magikarp. But Gyarados has a high attack power (as of gen VII, mega Gyarados is ranking #19 for highest attack stat & would rank #10 if legendary Pokemon aren't included), and more.

Gyarados is amazing it is originally the weakest Pokemon magikarp but when it evolves so reliable

A water dragon. Awesome.

4 Charizard 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.

Although I must admit mew two is stronger CHARIZARD IS EPIC he can learn: flare blitz pow 120, inferno pow 100, heat wave pow 95 and flamethrower pow 90 all in all CHARIZARD RULES!
Ps he's in the anime.

He is very powerful and can hit dragonite with dragon type moves or even his mega form charizard is ash's strongest Pokemon plus watch Pokemon black and white anime when ash's charizard fought dragonite and I mean look at charizard and mega charizard x HE HAS BLUE FLAMES I MEAN COME ON GO CHARIZARD FOR THE WIN ALL THE WAY

Mewtwo is better than charizard even mew but I voted for charizard dragonite and mewtwo the reason I voted for charizard its because it's my second favorite pokemon

Charizard is best...

5 Lapras Lapras

It is so reliable of water.

He is good I like how you can teach him surf

It has a high defense and its ability only makes its defense better. Ice and water is just an awesome typecombination

Lapras is vwery strong

6 Mew Mew Mew is one of the fictional species of creatures from Nintendo's and Game Freak's Pokémon media franchise created by Satoshi Tajiri.

Mew although has let me down a thousand times when using the move "Metronome" and using a Mofo-ing normal move on a ghost type :/, it is still by far my favorite and is always reliable against the elite four.

Mew is the strongest pokemon in the world this is some false information

Mew is not just cute it even defeated mewtwo one time.

7 Articuno Articuno

Articuno is powerful and beautiful. Needs more love whether its nature is good or anything.

Articuno is a very defensive and sp. defensive Pokemon when I used my articuno against the elite 4 it barely took damage about 20 per hit and it was only level 70!

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

Strongest ghost Pokemon before Haunter and Gastly

10 Pikachu Pikachu Pikachu 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.

Are you sure? Pikachu is well, cute. Just cute. But no way in heck is it stronger than Mew, Gengar, Charizard or Lapras. It's the Pokemon mascot, I know, don't get mad, it's just not strong at all. Don't know how it got to #4. At all.

I got a pikachu card and one attack was pika punch CUTE.

I had pikachu and I traded it for charizard.

What is magicarp doing above a legendary? Magicarp is the 2nd weakest Pokemon. (after luvdisk)

14 Aerodactyl Aerodactyl

Aerodactyle a Pokemon perfectly made. What else do you need? With this I have won the league in black and white. Please vore for it because it stands well nest to dragonite and charizard.

Legends tell of its fighting alongside a general and conquering a whole country. Arcanine is also known for its high speed, capable of running over 6,200 more.

Highest base stat non-legend or mega Pokemon in kanto

16 Raichu Raichu Raichu is an Electric type Pokémon, and the evolution of Pikachu. Raichu is number 26 in the Pokedex. It has an Alolan Form, which is an Electric/Psychic type.

Raichu is a electric and ground type right

Aggron is an awesome and powerful. its hyper beam and earthquake are powerful. GO AGGRON!

Aggron is in hoen

18 Slowking Slowking

This should be replaced by Slowbro this is Johto

19 Scyther Scyther
20 Metapod Metapod

I have metapod level 100 and its defense is ridiculous especially if you use harden a ton of times.

Meta pod is epic and funny laugh out loud

Your metapod can't be level 100 as it should evolve into beedrill and hardens PC is 30 so u cannot use it s tons of time

21 Kingler Kingler

Great Pokémon it can learn Crabhammer, and swords dance! Good attack too!

Togepi may doesn't look so strong, but it sure is. He uses metronome, can teleport things and even people. Sorry but Togepi could beat charizard, picachu, alakazam...more and more..

Togepi is strongest.

26 Omastar Omastar

It is a cool fossil Pokémon, it needs Mega Evolution. Very nice.

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 more.
33 Swampert Swampert
34 Venomoth Venomoth

Now I know what you're thinking, how could Venomoth be the strongest and blah blah blah. Well not stat wise, but the move set on it and abilities, oh it's strong. So we all know one thing, quiver dance, good move for sweeping and with tinted lens bug buzz will always hit at least normally, making it toug to take down. But there's quite a bit more you can do with a Venomoth then being a volcarona clone. First off, it has sleep powder, you will love this move if you haven't already. Then give it struggle bug and spam it on stuff like psychic types, most psychic types are special attackers. So when something like a grumpiest wakes up, it can't do that much to you, unless you've already killed it, this can work on any special attacker obviously, even fire type. And its 90 base speed won't leave you hanging that much. Now there's another thing you can do with it. Make it a attacker, give it sludge bomb, bug buzz, psychic and energy ball along with tinted lens and you can do some good ...more

35 Venusaur Venusaur Venusaur, known in Japan as Fushigibana, is a Grass/Poison type Pokémon species in Nintendo and Game Freak's Pokémon franchise. V 1 Comment
36 Ninetales Ninetales

It looks awesome. If you touch it's tales you will be cursed. Charizard and dragonite are overrated. Dragonite looks really derpy, and Charizard can be taken out with stealth rock. Mewtwo also. It is too overrated, people just love it because of nostalgia. by the way, Xerneas and Swampert are from Kalos and Hoenn respectively.

37 Pidgeot Pidgeot

Extremely destructive and can sweep through most things in Red and Blue

38 Electrode Electrode

Fastest Kanto pokemon, and it's type has the least amount of weaknesses against all eighteen types currently existing.

39 Magmar Magmar
40 Nidoking Nidoking
41 Trevenant Trevenant

This pokemon is the best pokemon in the world
