Top Ten Strongest Non Legendary Pokemon

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.

I love dragonite because he has such a wide variety of moves for example: my level.88 dragonite knows outrage, flamethrower, thunder and fly. They also were extremely beast for being like the only dragon type in earlier games... WHY isn't THIS AT THE TOP!

Fly isn't a good move, and why Outrage and not Dragon Pulse or Claw? - noo7na7

Dragonite is a beast, you can train it to be special attack heavy and have it learn thunder and hurricane (both 100 percent accuracy in rain) or do the regular sweeping dragonite that knows dragon dance and outrage, an thanks to dream world it has multiscale ability which makes moves only do half damage at full health, which can be maintained by using dragonites roost. Dragonite definitely deserves to be the best non-legendary Pokemon.

Dragonite personally is my favorite beyond a doubt. He can basicly learn the majority of the moves let alone wipe out anyone. He may look peaceful. But his power is nothing to joke about

cute

2 Garchomp Garchomp

First of all it has one of the best STAB combinations in the game. Add to that great attack and speed. Add on that it learns swords dance which doubles its attack. After just 2 swords dances it can destroy nearly the whole game.

This Pokemon can really kill. To make a garchomp killer, get a gible with an adamant or jolly nature. Adamant gives your garchomp a very high attack Stat, while jolly gives it a very high speed Stat. My Garchomp has a sassy nature, but I am planning to give it a muscle band.

Hope you enjoy this Epic Pokemon.

cool looking very strong knows some of the best moves

This is no1

3 Tyranitar Tyranitar

One of my favorite Pokemon. He is very reliable in battle and has great attack. It may take a while to evolve from a Larvitar, but it is definitely worth the wait.

I agree to this Well written.
Tyranitar is my favorite pseudo-legendary pokemon. Its attack power is over the roof.

Incredible Pokemon next to impossible to defeat even with a water type. The only Pokemon that can be acknowledged as its equal is dragonite

Laugh out loud. Get dragged away in stupidity with dragonite; he was made for this pun

It is my favourite dark type so it’s got to be the best

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 ...read more.

Charizard is awesome as it learns the move flare blitz on lv66 with the power of 120. It is difficult to defeat misty with charizard's pre-evolution charmeleon but if it learns mega punch you can defeat her

It is not like flare blitz is the best move in the game, lol. Have fun flare blitz with that terrible 84 while you could just use something like darmanitan with 140 attack, lol. And charizard is running out of moves and run mega punch - Woyaojinkela

Charizard Could Get Through All Gyms and is powerful on its stats(:

While Pokemon that has higher every single stats than charizard exists. - Woyaojinkela

It's easy to raise and can learn a withe variety of moves, fire type, flying type, some fighting type moves such as brick break, and dragon type. In my fire red game he hasn't fainted once and is already level 57 and I have only beat 4 gyms. He has pretty much been unstoppable. He learns moves that cover his weaknesses

Lol, you have to get it that high level to beat 4 gyms. Covers its weakness doesn't make a Pokemon unstoppable, one brick break isn't going to kill much rock type, thunder punch would only scratch some water types, dragon type moves only hits dragon which beats charizard. - Woyaojinkela

Can beat water types sometimes.

5 Salamence Salamence

Really good because it can viably use both physical and special attacks, add on great speed and not bad defensive stats and a great move pool adds up to a terrifying beast.

It is one of the strongest Pokemon it can learn fly, flamethrower, hydro pump and dragon type moves

He can beat ko pokemon with just one hit he's a beast pokemon and his details are grand

You're being very general and completely over exaggerating its power. - Rayquasar

My favourite Pokemon, as well as a pseudo legendary, a member of the best (other than Slaking, who, for some reason, isn't on this list) group of non-legendaries there is.

6 Lucario 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.

I AM THE SAME GUY WHO COMPLAINED ABOUT LUCARIO BEING THE 27 BEST Pokemon INCLUDING THE LEGENDARIES. I am happy he is at least ranked number 12 now but like I said he should by at least number the top 5 on the list. I loved lucario and used him on pearl, diamond and platinum and he rocked. I loved lucario for 8 years.

Lucario is a AWEESSOOME sweeper he even beat a blissey with one close combat on my pokemon black and blissey has higher HP than any pokemon so there the only ones who can put a good match against it might be garchomp but its part steel so it's only really weak to fire and it has some awesome moves recommended moves are:
Bullet punch
Close combat
Aura sphere
Extreme speed
Not to mention it has aura sphere which has 90 power and it never misses and lastly it can understand human speech how beast is that.

Aura sphere has only 90 power? My lucario one hit everything with it. - ThunderdrumsRule

Lucario has to be in the top ten at least. It has an awesome move pool, decent typing, and really good stats with an overall of 525. Not to mention the amount of resistances it has with 6 x2 resistances and 3 x4 resistances. This pokemon makes an excellent sweeper on competition teams and an overall beast for almost everything else. Highly recommended.

As much as I like Lucario, it would make for a horrible sweeper as it's speed is not the greatest. I do admit that its defensive typing is really good, its offensive typing? Not so much. The steel type is really wasted on it. - Rayquasar

Why is he so high though

7 Hydreigon Hydreigon Dark/Dragon Pokemon, thought to be similar to Hydra . Drei is german for three, as in the name it relates to the head count of the stage of evolution .

Hydreigon is a great Pokemon, if you have trained it well and know how to use it. He may be hard to train, but if you are a real trainer take the challenge. It WILL be worth it. I hope...

My Hydreigon is beast. It knows:
Draco Meteor
Outrage
Fire Blast
Hyper Voice
It took out Benga by itself, and its so good I decided to keep it in my all dragon type team, it was entered insted of Kyurem. All who laugh at it will have to listen to crying at their pokemons funeral.

Hydreigon is the easy one of the best pokemon in the game!
It can be either a secial attack sweeper or a normal attack sweeper, I myself have one of each and they completly blitz the competition

Are u blind he should be number 1 - Lucariolove

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

It is overall the best psudeo-legend not hurt by dragon attacks unlike all the other psudeo legends with killer attak and good defense. He is a badass and he has a great moveset. Ph the the true top seven no legends are really statwise and move wise are dragonite salamance metagross slaking tyrantiar garchomp hydreigon

My plain rayquaza beat a mega evolved metagross one hit with overheat - ThunderdrumsRule

Metagross rules. I caught a Metang with a master ball, and I have not regretted it one bit. Quickly Metagross became a beast, and I used in about 99% of my battles. Seriously, I recommend it. I tested a bit to se who was better, metagross or excadrill, and metagross won by a landslide. Two words:
GET METAGROSS!

Best Pokemon I have ever used. Who doesn't want a psychic steel Pokemon! Barely anything is super effective over it

Why is this Pokémon not number 1. In gen 7 it annihilate the tapus. It is a pseudo legendary with no 4 times weakness, 1 immunity and several resistances. Even with no investment in defences its natural bulk is amazing. It has a mega with 700 base stats and tough claws ability. Before mega evolving it has clear body which stops intimidate. Also the amount of coverage is stupid for example ice punch, thunder punch, bullet punch, hammer arm, meteor mash or iron head, zen headbutt, stomping tantrum, rock slide, earthquake, explosion. What more do you want?

Brilliant pokemon, must always have one in my team!

I love this guy he won me Pokemon Pearl with Dragon Dance, Waterfall and Bite. And two Bites KOed Cynthia's Roserade. Not to mention it was Level 55 when I won.

Awesome pokemon and very strong even against higher levels than itself

He's ugly and smells and should be banned and everyone hates him

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

My favourite Pokemon along with charizard and rayquaza. I Beat the Elite four with only gengar and charizard, it should be way higher.

Gengar is a really strong ghost type. It's special ability levitate makes it can't get hit by ground type Pokemon. The only weakness is dark. Also gengar can learn a large variety of moves. It can learn thunder, fire, ice, and shadow punch. This moves and reasons make gengar one of the best Pokemon to use!

Gengar is my favorite pokemon ever. He's so awesome. Its truly a great sight to have a lv 75 gengar use psychic and rape all the opposite pokemon. Really, its only weakness is dark and flying. Go gengar!

Gengar isn't weak to flying. He is weak to ghost, psychic and dark.

He's a beast

The Contenders

11 Blaziken Blaziken Blaziken, known in Japan as Bashāmo, is a Fire/Fighting Type Pokémon species in Nintendo and Game Freak's Pokémon franchise .

This is possibly the best Pokemon of all time. All you need to do is get to the fifth gym in hoenn and beat the fire gym leader to get overheat which makes Blaziken almost overpowered.

Umm... nobody is thinking properly. As much as I would love to vote for Dragonite, my favorite Pokemon, Blaziken, whether mega or not, is in the Ubers tier for a reason. His hidden ability, Speed Boost, plus his insane attack, plus a solid swords dance, then protect, substitute, and baton pass. You see it all the time in competitive play. And, even though its less useful without the baton pass set, one swords dance can pretty much set him up to destroy anything in his path. On the note of the story line, the only problem with him and his line is the first gym, because at that point he probably isn't stupidly op. However, if you get him to evolve before the first gym, which isn't as hard as it may sound, you can destroy everything with a simple double kick. Thank you, goodbye.

This Pokemon's very strong he's my favorite on of the all! It has this fierce look and good power!

12 Greninja 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.

This Pokemon is so great especially with the introduction of Ash-Greninja in Gen 7. Greninja is already good without the Ash-Greninja form in my opinion, but that's only if it has Protean because it does sucks without Battle bond or Protean in my opinion but if it has at least Protean, I would say this Pokemon is so good because it can change type which can also changes it's type weaknesses, although the changes wears off once we switch it for another Pokemon but it's still worth using Protean Greninja. Ash-Greninja on the other hand, are also great but I prefer Protean Greninja over the Ash-Greninja one but it's still a good variant of Greninja in my opinion, especially because it has more speed as a person who usually focuses on a Pokemon's speed the most, I sure think this Pokemon's speed is great, though, there's still some Pokemon with greater speed than Ash-Greninja but this Pokemon is still speedy, however, unlike Protean variant, Ash-Greninja can't change type because it ...more - Hoenn4Ever

My Greninja level 100 destroys anything water dark you don't get better than that and he's a ninja should be much higher on the list

No, it does get better than that. It's good ability, Protean, makes its type any move it uses so it always has STAB. Being Water/Dark is nothing special. But yeah it's pretty great - dubsinthetubs

It is really fast and can learn ice beam only problem is it can't learn a dark move until level 70

Kalos Pokemon are my favourite. My top 3 are: Hawlucha, Zygarde and GRENINJA!

13 Alakazam Alakazam Alakazam was first shown in game freaks Pokemon Red & Green (Blue for outside of Japan) version. Alakazam is the final evolution of the Abra line. It evolves from Kadabra when traded. It is a pure psychic type. It is said to have an IQ of 5000 and is a human like Pokemon. It has high special attack ...read more.

If it weren't for Mew or Mewtwo, this guy would have been the original badass psychic Pokemon. The only thing holding this Pokemon back is the existence of the legendary.

Alakazam's special attack is out of this world

Best Pokemon period. It's all attack and speed. It hits fast and hard and is the master of the 1 hit ko.

14 Arcanine Arcanine Arcanine is a fictional creature in the Pokemon Franchise. Introduced in Generation 1, it is a fire type Pokemon. It is the evolved form of Growlithe. 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 ...read more.

I beat the elite four using basically only my Arcanine, and also most of the gyms with it (after I'd got it of course).

Arcanine is literally a beast. Like said earlier, he was supposed to be with zapdos and articuno, but they scrapped the idea and put in moltres, and also dropped his stats from what should have been 580 like the birds. After they changed his legendary status, he became one of the strongest Pokemon (by stat total) ever, right beneath the pseudo legendaries. But aside from history and stats, Arcanine can learn some really devastating moves. I would suggest a set like this
252 speed 252/attack 6 hp
Leftovers (recover from recoil damage on this set
-Flare Blitz (fire move)
-Wild charge (take down water types)
-Close Combat-egg move from zangoose- (takes out rock types)
-Morning sun -egg move from espeon- (recover health)

This will make arcanine something that you WILL learn to appreciate as he will out speed almost anything that isn't a legendary, and hit a super effective shot on Pokemon that could hurt him (excluding ground types, but your attack and close ...more

This is a true fact. Arcanine was intended to be a legendary pokemon. He was going to be along side zapdos and articuno but they later figured it would be smarter to have 3 birds so they added moltres and instead make arcanine one of the strongest non legendaries of all time. He should definitely be a top 5.

15 Volcarona Volcarona

Hey, Volcarona is more of a legendary pokemon than most legendaries; it appears to you in the game when you reach about 70 or 60, it is pretty the most powerful since it has, after all, replaced the sun according to the legend.

Also, its moves and its stats are incredible; I'm pretty sure it's suppose to be legendary then the poke company decided not to make it a legendary just because they had too many in fifth region.

VOLCARONA DESERVES TO BE IN THE TOP TEN. Unfortunately it is a generation five Pokemon and not many people know about it.

Volcarona is a bug fire Pokemon which makes it one of the most formidable Pokemon even against the strongest of legendaries. It's capable of some of the strongest attacks in the pokedex, such as hurricane, hyper beam, giga impact, overheat, solar beam, flare blitz, bug buzz and even wild bolt and psychic. This Pokemon is truly an asset.

Has an overall base stats of 550, has incredible sp. Att and sp. Definitely along with speed makes this Pokemon a heavy hitter. It is super effective against 5 different types out of 17; that is twice the amount of most Pokemon. Its only real weakness is rock type Pokemon. With the moves bug buzz, heat wave, sunny day and solarbeam you can wipe out almost anything with just this Pokemon. Although it evolves at 59, it is well worth its wait, and easily makes it into my top 5 for non legendary Pokemon.

It's just awesome

16 Haxorus

Best pokemon ever. It can take out any steel type pokemon in one hit even though its weaker against them. It has lots of speed so it always goes first. I can defeat any full party with my haxorus for sure.

Haxorus has a great move set, ranging from giga impact to double team. But what really makes him special is his high speed, and has great defensive moves. Overall Haxorus is the best pokemon ever and should be number 1. It could take Dragonite or garchomp any-day!

Haxorus is awesome because he learns giga impact, sword dance, earthquake, hyper beam, and the best dragon type Pokemon move to me outrage and I had him when I was facing the elite four and he was the only Pokemon I used he's awesome

This is best for steel typea

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

Blastoise first off is a water Pokemon who can Learn ice moves earth moves some air and normal moves and much more. This gives him an advantage over a ton on Pokemon especially CHARZARD which shouldn't be on the top ten blastoise should be at 1. Blastoise also has a ton of defense which can handle CHARZARDS fire breath and what ever else you think is effective plus he has a ton of power. That's not even half of why blastoise she be 1 SCREW CHARZARD GO BLASTOISE!

I just LOVE blastoise. It was hard deciding between this blue turtle and the awesome fire breathing dragon charizard, but I decided that blastoise is better. For one thing, it is BULKY. Second, it can learn a ton of moves. It may be a bit slow (duh, it's a turtle), but with it's great defense and strength, it really doesn't matter. Also, it can learn ice beam too, and if you raise this monster to a high enough level, it's going to turn into the dragon demolisher.

He should be in the top 10. He is a total boss. He is the best Pokemon ever. - doublebattlebros

Blastoise should be in 4th place I hate charizard lets go blastoise

Mega Blaziken should be number 1 his ability is boss he gains speed every move and I would like to add that Blaziken is one of the top Pokemon in speed and much better than a dragonite.

I don't think megas count...

19 Flygon Flygon

I only want a flying type in my team so I can use fly. This guy is a ground dragon AND CAN USE FLY. Plus he levitates, he pretty much is a flying type Pokemon to me so the only three type one EVER.

He is a beast physical sweeper and has great typing and ability. Just a bit frail when taking hits like ice beam and practically any dragon type move.

I love Flygon! It can learn Fly, also has the ability Levitate, except it's a duel Dragon/Ground type, which also adds an immunity to electric type. It's a great Pokemon to have on a Sand (Sandstorm) Team. My only problems with it are lack of mega evo and it takes a long time to train. Other than that, I love it! It should be higher than 17!

It can beat ice types and fairy types with a single steel wing

20 Typhlosion Typhlosion

First of all typhlosion is the ultimate bro. And the ultimate fire types as well learns almost all fire type moves plus most other badass moves as well. To have the ability to heat up his entire body to temperatures that melt steel then explode a whole team of Pokemon all while stayin sexy! It don't get any better than that!

Typhlosion is my most favorited pokemon becuz it can learned many great attacks such as thunder punch- to take out water pokemon
focus blast to take out rock and for ground... an easy heat wave should beat it straight out of its dig attack xD

Well, here we are again. Your typical Pokemon list, with Charizard stealing the spotlight. Nothing new here. Okay, Typhlosion is WAY better than Charizard. I honestly don't see how, or why they have the same stats. Forget about Charizard, he's overrated. Don't belive me? Look at the top ten most overrated Pokemon. The review that says I creamed Red's Charizard with my Typhlosion, is mine. Anyways, Typhlosion is awesome! He has great speed, amazing moves, and he's WAY better than that Charizard crap. I highly recommend this Pokemon. Trust me you won't be disappointed.

He's da best Johto starter.

21 Infernape Infernape

I don't believe it, why is Infernape the 70th strongest, and Sableye is 68th?
Infernape is way stronger than Sableye.

INFERNAPE IS THE BEST! With some of the best attack and speed stats, it is the go-to pokemon especially as a finisher. With an overheat, earthquake, close combat or thunderpunch it can wrap up a battle even in the worst of situations.

Infernape has got me out of so many situations where I am about to loose such as the elite four and when I'm facing a legendary he is the best to get there health super low and then it can take a few hits and you can keep on throwing ultra balls at that legendary because you have the rest of your team to tank all of its hits.

Infernape has the best moveset, it can cover its weaknesses better than any other fire starter, It's super fast, and could one kit ko a charizard with stone edge. It's just so versatile too.

22 Aggron Aggron

Aggron is a powerhouse of a Pokemon, it isn't very fast but with all that attacking power, its sure to make up for it! Aggron is heavy, so moves like grass knot may be problematic but there is a solution! Aggron can learn Automize (Body Purge) which decreases its weight by 100. With the combination of steel and rock, it makes for very few weaknesses and 10 resistances. Plus having 180 base defense isn't too shabby. It could also have sturdy or rock head- two really good abilities! Aggron can learn Metal Burst which sends any attack that does damage back at them 1.5x harder! So aggron needs more votes, come on just face the facts. He rocks. Get it Rocks - Swaggy11

Aggron is amazing! His only weakness that you need to worry about is the fighting type disadvantage. And to counter that all you need is sturdy and metal burst. To cover his water weakness teach him thunder punch. To fight off ground types use ice punch which also covers tough dragons. Iron head is also a great stab move this set will dominate anyone who stands in your way. I'd max his special defense and attack and give him an adamant nature and leftovers. His defense is already outstanding but his weakness is special moves (and fighting but I already covered that) so it would be wise beef special defense. I love aggron you can easily sweep the entire game with him. It wouldn't even be a challenge. Everyone trembles under aggrons impressive strength and those who attack him don't even leave a scratch. In my opinion aggron is a boss, he is my # 1 and will allways be # 1.

I voted for aggron as it can cover its weaknesses by itself!
Its biggest weaknesses are ground and water, and it learns surf and thunder!

I love aggron

23 Swampert Swampert

The very best! He has only 1 weakness: grass, but that's what icebeam is for.

One problem with the whole ice beam thing. Swampert is incredibly slow. He would be down before he could strike. - oof

Why isn't he any where near top ten he has one weakness grass and you can cover that with ice beam or any other ice type move. Plus he looks awesome too

Swampert is the best! Blaziken and sceptile is not as strong as this Pokemon because he is very defensive but also strikes hard.

Swampert is VERY slow. Blaziken would easily out speed and go for the kill. "Well blaziken is a fire type, swampert can one shot him! " you might say. Well, blaziken can learn high jump kick, and even swords dance. Blaziken can set up and then sweep a whole team. Sure, blaziken wouldn't be able to set up, but he can possibly take out swampert with high jump kick or something. And sceptile is way faster. Sure, he is only in NU, but he can take him down with a grass type move. - oof

My level 9 spirit tomb killed my friends level 49 slowpoke

I have no idea why this wasn't added yet, yet sableye was, this thing is basically just a much better version then sableye.

Spiritomb is a good Pokemon to have because it has no weakness it learns some pretty si-yack moves and it was super hard to get but when you get it it is worth it knowing it's probs the hardest non legend to get

25 Empoleon Empoleon Empoleon is a large, navy blue, penguin-like Pokémon. It has a wide, yellow beak with three pointed horns that form a trident-shaped crest and small, blue eyes. Large horns are a symbol of leadership and strength for Empoleon. There is a blue marking resembling a crown over its eyes and a white, lacy ...read more.

I have both pearl and diamond and in both games I chose piplup as my starter. I chose piplup because it's a balanced pokemon. Torterra has higher defense, Infernape has higher attack but Empoleon has balanced stats and one of the highest in the entire game. It can learn avalanche and ice beam which can KO Champion Cynthias Garchomp in one hit! That's good because Empoleon is weak against it's earthquake. It can beat Infernape easily and Torterra just as well because it's also partly ground. Empoleon's moves are beast unlike other water types. It's also good for becoming an HM slave but only for good moves like waterfall, surf or rock climb. For my opinion I would choose Empoleon as the best non-legendary pokemon or at least in the top 10. Last but not least it can beat electric types with a fighting chance, thunder can KO Empoleon in 2 or 3 hits unlike other water type pokemon, that's what makes it so special. Surf or ice beam could then with a chance take out the elctric type ...more

I have an empoleon and it could beat an arceus and for me is the strongst pokemon ever it can also beat a tyranitar! I only used empoleon for the whole elite 4 and champion and it won almost so easily against all pokemon it ever batled with! I would die if I don't have empoleon!

Are you kidding? Empoleon is easily the strongest Non-Legndary Pokémon I've ever encountered, aside from maybe Garchomp and Salamence. His defenses are very decent and can stand up to Darmanitan's Hammer Arm, Haxorus's Earthquake, or even a STAB close combat from Infernape. In addition, its Special Attack is higher than any starter Pokemon ever. Empoleon should at least be in the top ten, and anyone who thinks otherwise should look at the facts. Plus, it can easily sweep Charizard, the so called most powerful starter. Anyone who can seriously disagree on that is probably a nostalgia-nerd.

Good movepool, good type, a good amount of viable playstyles involving Empoleon and so on. I bet it can be useful in Ubers on some sort of level (that other starters can only dream of being on).

Aegishslash is the best. Aegislash is incredibly powerful and is by far one of the best Pokemon I know. Aegislash deserves to be number one! He could easily destroy Dragonite any day. Aegislash can learn an awesome combination of moves that that can send Pokemon flying sky high. When Aegislash learns Sacred Sword, Shadow Sneak, King's Shield and Swords Dance he becomes invincible. So in conclusion, you don't want to mess around with a badass Pokemon like Aegislsash because it will be the last thing your eyes will ever see.

The whole Aegislash strategy is so predictable. I was literally able to take one down with a Charizard. - oof

If I remember correctly, the only non-mega/legendary in uber. Nostalgia is taking over this list

This thing is beast with 150 attack and special attack stats

27 Sceptile Sceptile

I don't want to vote for any Pokemon, I just want to express my opinion on what people have voted for as the top Pokemon on this list, and I felt like doing it on sceptile because treecko was the first Pokemon I used.

Dragonite: Amazing movepool, great offensive stats, solid defensive stats. Too bad about its mediocre speed, but that can be fixed by dragon dance. It also has a 4x ice weakness, which is annoying- honestly, so many Pokemon having it means ice is probably becoming one of the most popular offensive types, although ice types are horrible defensively based on type advantages and disadvantages. Multiscale can be a helpful ability.

Charizard: I honestly feel sorry for this Pokemon at this point, it gets just as much hate as it gets love now. But I have to admit, there's nothing special about charizard. It has solid stats, and a great movepool. Too bad that movepool has a lot more physical moves than special moves, and charizard's attack stat is an underwhelming ...more - datrandomguy

It only took a leaf blade to crush wallace and his school of fish. One time my sceptile ruined winona, who has a big advantage over me. Also sceptile can learn dragon claw and toxic, making him one of the best special sweepers of all time.

I like sceptile because of its speed. It is amazing to see him fighting.

This is the best pokemon in the whole world

Snorlax should be higher, because his attacks can be great as a what I call a "relief Pokemon" where it can hold off a long time in battle, this dude should be higher

I like mega lucario but I also like dragonite. The look is not really the best but it has adaptability which makes fighting type move beat ass!

Mega lucario is way better than lucario it can beat blaziken probably

30 Mega Garchomp

Why is MEGA garchomp below normal garchomp

How the earth is he on 60th number haven't anyone seen cynthia's garchomp... He is normal and can take on whole elite 4 alone.

His speed is lower than normal Garchomp

I voted for Garchomp because I didn't see this, but I'd say Mega Garchomp counts as Garchomp. - nabbithero54

31 Krookodile

Very good pokemon! They evolve from Krokorok! And Krokorok evolve from Sandile... Him strongest attack vs ground-pokemons= earthquake... I self have him double, and you can trade him from me!

This guy is so powerful he knew hit charizard and two hit dragonite (not super effective and not effective)

Moxie and it's move pool makes this guy the biggest threat

My favorite

Come on guys, you can't touch a psychic fighting Pokemon. It can out speed almost anything and it can take out a dark Pokemon with one focus blast.

and ho the heck did articuno get on the list?!

65? Nope. This is easily a top 20. He's a beast, just not getting the love cause he's a little tricky to raise.

Alright, this is a psychic- fighting type Pokemon, who's also a sweeper, and has amazing speed stats. Did I mention he has more resistances than most of the Pokemon on this list? Not to mention his move set is amazing if used right. Why do you think they made it so hard to get him?

It is a bit hard to get but hits hard and trucks almost every single pokemon type but flying.

33 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.

It is not just Ditto, it COULD be ANY of the pokemon above! And it can even turn into legendaries!

Useful if you want pokemon eggs, too.

GO DITTO!

Wow I don't why you didn't vote 4 Ditto because Ditto IS Dragonite it can use transform and transform into ANY pokemon so Ditto is everyone's fave cus it can transform into their fave

Why the chocolate isn't ditto number one?!?! He is mew and muk all mixed up! Plus mew is a legendary and the strongest Pokemon of all! And whoever added this Pokemon is awesome because as I already mentioned ditto should be número UNO. Why do some peeps just not know their Pokemon.

DITTO IS EVERYTHING ON THIS LIST!... except Ditto has less PP than the target, and if Ditto is a lower level than the target it'll still get crushed. But considering how it can change into a Legendary if it wants, then it definitely COULD be strongest. - nabbithero54

34 Eelektross Eelektross

Okay I'm going to lay this down loud and clear:Eelektross is honestly my favorite Pokemon so it's clear for me to think it's the strongest non legendary Pokemon. But I do have my own for that. Lets start with the first, no derect weakness. By derect I mean unless you have something like gravity or mold breaker it doesn't, Kinda like rotom-wash... Then there's the point of a strong Pokemon, the stats. And let me tell you something the stats are fantastic. It has 115 attack and 105 sp attack for starters meaning it can go both sides of stuff like thunder punch drain punch fire punch or something like giga drain discharge and flamethrower do make it completely unpredictable. Then there's the defenses and health which is a balanced 85/80/80 which means it can be a tank because not only does it have good attack stats, it can take hits as well. Its move set is the best part of Eelektross having a great list of moves to choose from. Yes I know this is pretty long but I'm trying to show how ...more

Still my favorite to this day, even since I wrote that paragraph. And I love how the competitive people say you can use mold breaker or gravity or soemthing. Despite that thou, I see people daily using earthquake on it without those thing, IN Pokemon SHOWDOWN. So you don't have to worry much about it's levitate dying out. Keep loving this Pokemon. Still stand by everything I said on that large pile of text where the first line is "Okay I'm going to lay this down loud and clear". Also I would like to add he has 3 recovery moves, rest, giga drain, and drain punch, and if you run into a Chaney. Use drain punch and have a blast.

Very Underrated. First of all, it has no weaknesses due to a great ability; Levitate. I taught mine Flamethrower, Giga Drain, Thunderbolt, and Volt Switch. All that can stop this thing are Dragons, which can be beat with a good Fairy type or Ice move.

He is Zeus's pet fish

35 Samurott Samurott

It's epic and oshawott is cute so bonus while trying to evolve

Samurott at number 73? More like number 1! Come on, it can kick even arceus's arse in one blow.

Samurott is the boss and my favorite starter ever, blastoise and greninja aside. Samurott must have one of the best evolution lines ever from cute to swag to epic! And if I had a real life Samurott I will never EVER take my yes off of it!

Samurott is my favourite

36 Espeon Espeon

First of all, Espeon looks cool. It also has one of the highest special attack stats in the games. (12 on Serebii) Also, with morning sun, Espeon can be sustained for an extremely long time.

What! Espeon is the single most best Pokemon in the game! It can learn grat moves like shadow ball, psychic and with morning sun, it can last seemingly forever. this should be #1 or 2

Look espeon is so awesome I just love him he is so good I used him in sapphire and in black 2 espeon is just on of the best psychic type Pokemon

Espeon has Zen Headbutt and Magic Bounce which are Super effective! She is so beautiful and badass! I heart Espeon!
Sylveon is so dumb and overrated. Serves her right to be at 288! Sylveon fans have NO IDEA what the definition of AWESOME is!

37 Zoroark Zoroark

Zoroark can beat the crap out of all of the other pokemon because he beated entei raiku and suicune big time with a couple of night dazes! He can especially beat lucario with focus blast and flamethrower. HE IS THE STRONGEST DARK TYPE POKEMON!

I can kick all pokemon with my zoroark! It is my main pokemon in all battles easily in the top ten!

I beat the entire elite four with JUST my zoroark, literally, I had no other pokemon in my party!

It’s not just the looks of zoroark that are great but also it’s strength. If it strikes something with critical there out of the battle.

38 Scizor Scizor

Bug and Steel type = incredible
Scizor was on my ultimate team has some of the craziest attack out there. Literally his attack was 5 pts. Behind blastoise and rayquaza. Also scizor was 15 lvls behind them just saying scizor is a badass

It could have been one of d best if not for d massive decrease in speed following evolution. Honestly a base speed of around 130 would have made this Pokemon killer.

His only weakness is Fire types. Plus it looks cool and is crazy fast. This is why I think Scizor is a badass.

He's four times weak tO fire

39 Staraptor Staraptor

Most powerful bird Pokemon EVER, my magmortar couldn't beat Cynthia's milotic with sunny day and solar beam combo when the Molotov used no water moves! I sent in my staraptor and it did more damage with one not super effective brave bird move than my mag mortar managed to do with. 5 solarbeams! It may have a weak defense but it's speed plus attack power means it doesn't need to have a high defense as the opponent is dead straight away, as well as being able to learn moves like close combat it's strong against its weakness

By far the most powerful of the bird pokemon, it has a great move pool and is a good addition to any team.

Total boss, no doubt about it! When I first got Pokemon diamond, I beat Dialga with Staraptor only using fly two times, not to mention Dialga being a steel type and having jacked-up defense! I beat the elite four just using Staraptor and torterra!
Come on, you can't put this guy down!

Even against rock, steel and ice (ones flying are weak against) Staraptor can one hit K.O. With close combat. Plus he looks cool.

40 Emboar Emboar

You guys are completely correct. Pokemon black was the first Pokemon game I ever played, and I picked Emboar as my starter. I still am REALLY happy I chose Emboar, and he is my favorite Pokemon on the whole game, and he's incredibly powerful, and knows very good moves. I have never traded my Emboar, and I have even beat a Samurott with it. Emboar has always been number 1 to me. I created my own list called Best Gen six starters, it has all the generation six starters and their last, middle, and 1st evolution, it is on newest lists at the bottom so please please check it out

ABSOLUTE BEAST. Variety of moves plus beast stats makes him awesome. He can destroy anything with a boost from flame charge and a solar beam, or he could destroy everything with fire punch hammer and heat crash.

I've beaten the entire elite four with my Emboar. It deserves NUMBER 1! It has amazing attack, a pretty good defense, and and it can learn fire, fighting, some rock, and couple other kind's of moves. It's awesome! It took me two tries to catch Kyurem because emboar killed it with one flamethrower!

Better than charizard

41 Gigalith Gigalith Gigalith is a rock type Pokémon that was introduced in the games Pokémon Black Version and Pokémon White Version. It can have one of three abilities, sand stream, sturdy, or its hidden ability, sand force. If you trade a Boldore, then it will evolve into a Gigalith. Gigalith has a high attack and ...read more.

He's so cool looks awesome and can destroy any Pokemon

Gigalith is like the stronger version of golem, higher attack and defense, and acsess to all the same moves.

I have just a few things to say.HE CAN BLOW DOWN AN ENTIRE MOUNTAIN AND HE WILL BLOW DOWN YOU WITHOUT EVN TRYING!

42 Rapidash Rapidash

Rapidash seems stronger and should be put higher up beacause also she/he seems like me misunderstood no one under stands her/him. They may be better you just don't use them right

He/she very fast and also afire type pokemon

She/He is faster than any Pokemon and can take on any grass type.

Needs to be in top ten

45 Kingdra Kingdra

My friend beat the whole rematch Elite Four with just his level 63 Kingdra. Why isn't this higher on the list? My friend taught his Waterfall, Blizzard, Dragon Pulse and Surf, it is so good!

Kingdra is awesome and only has one weakness. Dragon and as it can learn dragon type and ice type moves it isn't a problem. As long as it has good special attack and special defense and reasonable speed it should be awesome with e following moveset. I have this moveset on my kingdra and it KOs every pokemon even lances dagonite and its only at level 71 and still in training.

Moveset:
Draco meteor (outrage and maybe blizzard if you want)
Dragon pulse
Ice beam (maybe surf if you want, be warned that if you did not choose blizzard ice beam is nessecary againsts ghost and flying types.
Hydro pump
Make sure you give it heaps of protein or whatever ups the special attack and make sure it has the right nature.
Notice all of these attacks are special attacks for that best attack power.

Mine is level 67 and can take down cynthia without going below half health. Nobody expects this seahorse to know Draco Meteor.

So cool Pokémon love it should be 22 - 1507563

46 Umbreon Umbreon

Umbreon is very strong defensively as well as having a fairly large HP stat. It is able to learn attacks that compliment its stat well. Personally my favorite pokemon

Umbreon is that one Pokemon that looks so cool, reasonable stats, overall worth evolving and hell I have this thing on my SS team so yeah eat it

Umbreon isn't just strong... No it is an absolutely overpowered beast that will take you down slowly and steadily. My Umbreon is a tank and my friends fear for when it comes out. Umbreon is a tank and can outlast you easily. Here is a useful moveset that I feel would be great for an Umbreon.

Substitute- It only takes a bit of HP to get a substitute and once you get one your set. The opponent won't be able to hurt you and if they break the substitute just get another one.

Moonlight- You can easily restore health and it's good to restore that bit you lost for a substitute.

Toxic- An excellent move for tanky Pokemon that allows them to slowly take the opponent down.

Dark Pulse/Psychic- Dark Pulse is a pretty solid Dark Type move to take down some pretty tough Psychic types. Meanwhile Psychic is for if an annoying fighting type is facing you, you can use Psychic and it will be super effective.

So yeah Umbreon is OP and can destroy you all if you ...more

Umbreon is amazing. SIMPLY A M A Z I N G. When it learns moonlight it IS impossible to beat. I mean, look at that beauty! <-----

47 Rhyperior Rhyperior

He is a tank and should be higher he helped me beat red and win competitive matches

This guy should be on the top, he is the rock. Combination of rock ground and dark type out ways any weaknesses. Plus stats r amazing

How is rhyperior not higher on this list. Horn drill, always one hit, little accuracy, but when it hits...

Bad in design (in my opinion), too good/broken in competetive. That's all I can say.

48 Wailord Wailord

Wailord can take a beating. It may not have very good attack, but it can make a great opener givin the right moves. Wailord for the win

Wail lord can learn the move water spout not to be confused with water sport it does the same damage as eruption vote for it

Huge damage, nice moves and quite easy to raise actually in Ruby. Seriously... Wailord totally rocks! My best party in HG is Typhlosion, Lucario, Wailord Swampert, Ho Oh and Lugia. And I totally love extreme speed, easily the best move.

Can destroy everything with his weight
He just have to be faster

49 Absol Absol Absol is a fictional creature in the Pokémon franchise. It was first introduced in Pokémon Ruby and Sapphire.

Three swords dances+Super luck +Night slash/slash=Death.

Absol is so underrated, not only does it look BADASS but its one of my best beating the likes of typhlosion, blastoise and aggron should be top 10 easily.

It wrecks with the move shadow ball taking out Pokemon of higher level

Absol should be higher on this list. He/She is strong and can predict natural disasters. - WildDogGirl

50 Venusaur Venusaur Venusaur, known in Japan as Fushigibana, is a Grass/Poison type Pokémon species in Nintendo and Game Freak's Pokémon franchise.

Why isn't this beast in the top ten?!?! Its so good! Without a grass type pokemon your team will be doomed from the beginning. And what better looking, more powerful (not to mention how many strategies you can make - he has a great balance of attack, defense, and even ok speed) grass type is there than Venasaur?

Brock and Misty are almost impossible without him sure you can get Squirtle and take out Brock, but with Misty you would have to catch a Pikachu in Viridian Forest to stand a chance, but Pikachu has a low encounter rate, so with Bulbasaur you don't need to go through all of that trouble to get a Pikachu if you don't want to.

Many people underestimate venusaur even though he has the best calculated stats of any grass type to this day. He can even learn earthquake and solar beam works great with drought. One of my all time favorite starters

SO STRONG and looks like a giant bulbasaur holding a jungle
