Strongest Legendary Pokemon

The Top Ten

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

Arceus has the power of all pokemon he has all of the element stones to protect him from anyone so he can use pokemons moves againest the he can also beat dialga, giratina, palkia and others that get in his way

Arceus is the stroger than mewtwo really, to me, he is the king of the legendary pokemon, most powerful one. Anyway, I don't think Mewtwo is that strong, I mean yes he can control people's mind but surely if all the people the pokemon (plus legendary) come together and use their attack, they could defeat it. Really, if Mewtwo can do it then we can do it too, nothing such as he can do it no one can

Don't get me wrong, Arceus is a ridiculously powerful legendary. I thought that Arceus would be second or third, however. Because its default is normal, it may have no weaknesses, but it has no strengths either. In the games, every online battle where I have fought against an Arceus I have smacked him/her in the face with Mewtwo. Its stats may be the highest without megas, yes. But its stats are cut even, meaning there's no optimal way to applicate strategies without taking a risk. Using its plates are effective, yes. But in the games, you can only use one at a time, so there is a 1/16-17 chance that Arceus will be effective. In the Anime, Arceus lost to simple trickery and a bunch of cement, so basically, it is overrated. For example, Mewtwo, (yes, I know this comparison is used a lot) hasn't really been defeated.

Arceus is A GOD it impossible to get why

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.

In the actual games, yes, mewtwo is probably stronger. In the anime, no. But dice I value the games more strongly than the anime, mewtwo, I choose you! Also, if mewtwo has the power to control minds, couldn't it just control arceus's mind and make it lose? All these facts combined prove that mewtwo and s actually stronger than arceus. Plus mewtwo can mega evolve, and both of those mega evolutions could easily wreck arceus in an instant. And even if arceus became dark type via the plates, mew two could just control it's mind. Plus, it has survived being stabbed through the chest by deoxys, which makes it pretty hardy. Also, it can wield a giant spoon, which in addition to being just plain awesome (and a ripoff of kadabra, admittedly) it has killed deoxys with it and also shadow (see DEATH BATTLE: MEWTWO VS SHADOW) which also makes it very strong. All this leads up to mewtwo being stronger than arceus

Before the games diamond, pearl and platinum came out. Mewtwo was the strongest legendary.

Think about it, Mewtwo is a clone of mew, who is the ancestor of ALL pokemon, and mewtwo is just stronger than mew, and if you look at the stats of arceus in actual games or pokemon cards, he generally has better stats and moves.

Mewtwo should be number 1.let me tell you why. aura sphere is fighting so chance to beat access is very high+Even tyrantinar able to beat arceus

3 Rayquaza 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 so awesome alone but mega evolved he is just an absolute destroyer he looks the coolest too he has the highest stats and should be number 1! He has been my favourite since I started playing Pokemon and still is and arceus is not superior to Rayquaza, arceus is important but so are the other legendary Pokemon like dialga and palkia with space and time and groudon with expanding the land arceus couldn't make the universe on his own! If you agree please vote for ray because ray should be first

Rayquaza is awesome and has an awesome move pool but nobody beats his mega evolution. He should be number 1 because he does have the highest stats and he is stronger than race us so I think rayquaza should be the creator of Pokemon. He is also very cool looking and presents as a powerful asset to your team if you catch him and have him learn the correct moves.

A lot of strong moves dragon/water/fire etc.

He can mega evolve without a mega stone and he looks so awesome!

4 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.

It is true that mew can transform and learn everything, but that doesn't mean that the stats are the best. You can search up mew's stats, and the stats are not off the chart or something like that.

Mew can transform into ANY Pokemon and also can learn every move. Thus it is the most unpredictable and powerful.

Mew=love mew=life plus mew can transform into any Pokemon mew is the second legendary ash ever saw and mew is just mew

It ain't that good with stats

5 Dialga Dialga

To me he is one of the most strongest Pokemon in the galaxy but he actually isn't his stats are up to 680 but while arceus at 720 and rayquaza at 780 but to me he is the best time but he has the advantage since he can stop all time and kill the Pokemon right away but arceus created him so technically arceus can stop him from doing that.

Dialga is SO awesome. He wrecked Palkia and is the strongest dragon-type (even strong than kyurem I tested it) and his roar of time wrecks everything in London diamond.

I really like dialga, it's design is like the best of all legendary Pokemon! Its stats are also "unbelievable", like when I say "UNBELIEVABLE" I mean it.

This is my favorite designed Pokemon.

Dialga has the power to control time! That means he can go back in time and
fight again! He can get as many chances as he wants!

6 Zekrom Zekrom

Zekrom is very great! I like him very much

Zekrom is the strongest legendary Pokemon it was also my first level 100 Pokemon so in my book it deserves strongest legend

The best of best what is doing at 7! it should be at 1

I think zekrom should be in number one because he's cooler than Arceus and he can grab him and choke Arceus😈😈😈
yup

7 Reshriam

The person who hast the most liked comment on this one is retarded. Lugia isn't an Ice type you idiot. It's Psychic/Flying.

Reshiram deserves a higher place on the list.

I too love RESHIRAM it is damn strong it even beats ZEKROM in seconds.

Reshiram was my first legendary, and it has a great design, much better than the Pokémon further up the list, but I’m not sure about the stats, I haven’t researched

8 Lugia Lugia

Lugia is a tank Pokemon which can be used by professional players to gain control of the battle. It can learn many types of moves which makes the situation even better. It can also learn recover and roost to avoid fainting in the battle if it managed to strengthen up it's stats. Gaining advantage of this Pokemon is for the professionals not for the beginners who wants to go all the way out attacking. Having a high speed makes it even faster to power up before getting hits. It's secret ability multi scale gives it the advantage of strengthening it's stats in the beginning and when it recovers to full health. With all these reasons LUGIA is the best Pokemon for the professional players.

Lugia is the king of all! Don't say a word! I'll punch you down! Just kidding. Honestly, lugia for me is the greatest. I have it in my crystal and its wonderful. It smacks oponent at its reatest. And also, teach it attacks and it will be unbeatable! - justine_canales

Lugia os the absolute best in my opinion, also, why aren't you a water type lol, in my opinion, Game Freak was drunk when the made lugia,

...why isn't it higher. HIGHER HIGHER HIGHER. AMAZING POKÉMON AND YOU RUINED IT. And where did it get the baby?

9 Giratina 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.

I like him especially because he has the power over antimatter just amazing he can defeat Mewtwo for sure he should be number 2

Come on. It's the second strongest legendary Pokemon (the strongest being arceus) ever. - Kiteretsunu

This is ridiculous. Dialga and Palkia are supposed to be the beings that shaped space and time, and Giratina is supposed to be their more powerful counterpart. The list should go: Arceus, Giratina, then Dialga and Palkia.

It is one of the greatest and strongest Pokémon ever it should be in 2

V 31 Comments
10 Hoopa Hoopa

I think that hoopa should be in the top 5. Hoopa can bring out more strong Pokemon to help her/him out. Hoopa is like unstoppable when it reveals it's unbound form. To me, hoopa should be like, one of the best Pokemon there is.

Hoopa unbound vs lugia. I'm sure we all know who's gonna win. Plus, I battled my friend who had a hoopa unbound and he destroyed my dialga. Yes, my DIALGA. But I don't know if it was trained that well, so maybe hoopa is less strong. But he should at least be in the top 10. - spokesstuff

Hoopa is very strong and when he turns into unbound you gotta see it it's so cool and strong

Whoop whoop

The Newcomers

? Ultra Necrozma

It so awesome cool design and is very powerful

Best legendary Pokemon in ultra sun and moon

The Contenders

11 Kyurem Kyurem

Arceus is the GOD of pokemon in the pokemon universe and giratina, palkia and dialga are strongest of their worlds. So after them kyrum will come and should be placed above mewtwo because he is the strongest dragon type and has the ability to absorb power from reshiram and zekrom which makes him strongest of earth. Only after kyrum, Mewtwo will come.. So the order will be somewhat like this.
1. Arceus
2. Giratina
3. Dialga
4. Palkia
5. Kyrum
6. Mewtwo
7. Reshiram
8. Zekrom
9. Xeneres (pokemon x)
10. Yuvatal (pokemon y)

Mewtwo was genetically created after mews DNA so Mewtwo is way higher than the others

I guess it pretty strongest.

I suggest that kyurem is one of the strongest pokemon on earth. As in the anime movie kyurem fought against mega latios and requaza and had a tie battle

12 Palkia Palkia

I have a Palkia my pokemon white 2 and it is wonderful! It has wonderful attacks and wins every battle I put it into. It's hard to beat a level 100 Palkia with 4 awesome attacks that do significant damage.

Palkia is great and his spacial rend is so strong. This guy also learns the very rare hydro pump, so he deserves to be the strongest. Plus, in the game, Arceus's plates only turn him into that type; He does not get protected by them like in the movie, so palkia can still destroy arceus because hydro pump is stronger than judgement (which is Arceus's signature).

Palkia can take any damage, Dialga used roar of time on Palkia and he survived in plus its 150 damage and its a dragon type so its super efective on Palkia and his special move can use any time, faster then roar of time, no need to have an extra round to use again. He is faster then Dialga.

His neck and his head is very good design and special rend shall kill all non fairies!

Oblivion wing is just epic. You can deal with unsuspecting fighting types

With proper training, now with Pokemon amie at level 100 this is my overall best (and I have all legends)

The strongest Pokemon can battle any Pokemon.

Should be much higher. Miles better than Palkia, Zekrom, Lugia and Reshiram. Master of Destruction and Damage.

14 Thundurus Thundurus

Thunderous looks like and 80 year old with frostbite strapped to a storm cloud! What us wrong with you this should be down at the bottom of a top 700 list.

I don't vote for this chick. Tornadus, Thundurus, and Landorus were either created by Zekrom or Rayquaza.

THIS legend sucks

In pokemon x I have landorus, not thundurus nor tornadus. someone traded me the landorus for my galvantula that I hached out of an egg when it was just a joltik.

Xerneas's called the life Pokemon because it can revive Pokemon.

I have Xerneas in roblox Pokemon Brick Bronze thoe. Well that's not important.. I just wanna say what the heck? Why is this beautiful creature No.15? No way. Its powerful and like... so beautiful! :O

Xerneas can totally defeat Arceus.

This pokemon is called as a prison pokemon it gives pokemons life but
IN PRISON!

16 Darkrai Darkrai Darkrai is a legendary Pokemon developed by Game Freak. The only way to get this Pokemon was through two events, only one in the United States.

Darkrai in my opinion is the strongest Pokemon (stronger than arceus) because in the movie "The Rise Of Darkrai" he could've easily wrecked dialga and palkia but he didn't do it because dialga and palkia could collide. Besides he protected a city full of people that are mean to him. That's just plain strong.

He is not that strong arceus can kill him in any minute but he is great

Darkrai is my favorite Pokemon because dem speed (and also special attack is real good too), and I watched the movie (tears and admiration right there! )

Epic I think he is great

17 Bidoof Bidoof

Just no no this is wrong so wrong

Bidoof is op my bidoof beat team galactic and even almost fainted diagram and palkia

This thing is not op I can easy faint one and it isn't a legendary Pokemon at all

Bidoof is op he can 1 shot all legendarys by using growl

Bidoof is legendary for the fact that he's an HM Slave. But he's not an actual legendary Pokemon though.. - DiamondCreeper

V 57 Comments
18 Entei Entei

Entei is cool but I don't think it is too strong.

A dog when roars a volcano erupts about no other can control the elements

Entei is by far the strongest Pokemon, between his speed, and him being the strongest fire-type Pokemon.

I bet entei can kill or faint most legendery's with fire blast' flamethrower' or eruption.

21 Victini Victini

Victini is considered the embodiment of victory. It is said that a Trainer with a Victini will win anything no matter what.

Victini is the best and he is strong and cute

Victini Created Reshiram and Zekrom

The Pokédex states that this Pokémon brings victory. It is said that Trainers with Victini always win, regardless of the type of encounter.
It creates an unlimited supply of energy inside its body

Considering that it has infinite energy and always wins (hence the name Victory Pokemon) I think it is safe to say it is the strongest.

Like charizard it faints at the sight of rock Pokemon and stealth rock. A very underwhelming legendary

He is better than Lugia to be honest go ho oh can defeat Lugia unless Lugia has like more energy but that's impossible because ho oh keeps using the powerful fire Pokémon move

According to me ho oh is the strongest Pokemon

Ho-oh is op on pokemon gold he one hit groudon

He is way better than mew

29 Weedle Weedle Weedle is a worm-like Pokémon in the Pokémon series. It evolves to Kakuna, which evolves to Beedrill. Its name may come from "worm" and "needle", or "weed" and "needle", referencing that it chews weeds, helping gardeners.

This is by far the most powerful Pokemon in the universe. It just has yet to realize its potential and awaken its slumbering power of a god. Have you ever wondered why Beedrill has a mega? it evolves from WEEDLE! - Geckey

Zygarde 100% form is stronger than mewtwo and its health is just amazing. I'm sure zygarde could at least be the second strongest pokemon after mewtwo. I could prove it by looking up their stats

Zygarde is so powerful it should be number 1 if not it's definitely 2 like who puts it on number 30!

I think zygarde will be on no 2 spot

Zygard is amazing he can transform into two difrent pokemon zygard and another pokemon it even has a shield what is crazy.

32 Primal Kyogre Primal Kyogre

Primal kyogre is by far the most op Pokemon out. first of all primal kyogres special attack stat can reach a maximum of 504! His signature move orgin pulse, has a base power of 110 and attacks all Pokemon on the opposing team. not to mention its stab takes its base power up to 165! Plus its ability primordial sea takes that move and increases the power further and does the same to other water type moves. also primordial sea nullifies the ability to change the weather! Primal kyogre is also bulky in special defense and health so it can take some powerful hit. this monster is the definition of powerhouse. it can destroy almost anything! Same with primal groudon.

Why is it down here? It's Kyogre's mega evolution, of course it's stronger than kyogre.

Primal kyogre is better than kyogre so why is it not higher. IDIOT

This Pokémon is so underrated! First of all, it looks cool which gives it a ton of points in my book. Second of all, it has enough power to destroy the world. It should be higher than groudon because it has not undergone primal reversion and also it has a type advantage it should beet him! Lastly, it is classified by a lot of people as the third most powerful Pokémon and I agree. P.s I love this guy!

33 Mega Rayquaza

Mega rayquaza is the ULTIMATE pokemon with its very high attack and speed stat it can wipe almost any team by using sword dance 1 time and then using its signature move Dragon Ascent

Don't get why this is part of "The Newcomers" even though people are saying Mew is good because of the movie. It's not even Ubers.

Brah this is way to op

Along with Kyogre and Groudon, Rayquaza is a part of the weather trio, serving as its trio master. In Omega Ruby and Alpha Sapphire, it plays an important role during the Delta Episode and is required to be caught there. with mega Rayquaza's signature move Delta stream it's ability is when Rayquaza has Delta Stream and enters a battle this Ability creates a mysterious air current, a unique weather condition. In a Rotation Battle, Delta Stream will not activate if the Pokémon is sent out in a rotated-out position, nor will it activate if the Pokémon is rotated in. In addition, Delta Stream will not activate if a mysterious air current is already present on the battlefield or if the Pokémon's Ability is suppressed prior to it gaining Delta Stream.

34 Regigigas Regigigas

Arceus has 1000 arms? maybe he dislocate his two arms and created regigigas that's why regigigas is so strong that's just my theory

Guys why regigigas is not even here? he can tow continents with its BARE HANDS!

35 Ditto Ditto Ditto is a character from Pokemon. It's a normal type Pokemon that has the ability to shape shifter into anything. It's weakness is fighting type Pokemon and is a gender less Pokemon.

This is supposed to be first because it can morph into ANY pokemon the exists or has existed!

Not a legendary

Ditto is the best by far he looks like Pablo sandoval

Ditto is 5th Powerful. for he can transform into any Pokemon but only if he sees them. that's why in pokemon go he is always Pidgeys and Rattatas

This Pokemon is AWEFUL! This thing could hardly beat a Magikarp! Anyway it's only interesting when it's in its resolute form. Get keldeo out of every strong Pokemon list, thus is not in any way powerful.

I like this Pokemon becuse I don't think it can beat mew but its close
