Top Ten Strongest Non Legendary Pokemon
The Top Ten
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!
Uh you guys forget that it's an actual game right so the opponent isn't likely to switch out. But still, Dragonite isn't a great pokemon
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
Dragonite was a strong, powerful Pokemon in the Gen 1 games despite his x4 weakness to ice type. It's stats are legendary. The only thing I could beat with in Pokemon yellow game was My Arcticuno. This is my favorite Pokemon.
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.
Lol you realise a Garchomp killer is something that kills Garchomp right
cool looking very strong knows some of the best moves
Garchomp is Soo badass I have him in my Pokemon game, he might not be as strong as my Mewtwo and Charizard, but still favorite
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
The best pokemon ever. Has fire, water, ice, electric, steel, rock, ground, dark, dragon, and more.
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
The greatest Pokemon ever. My level 61 Salamence one shot a level 74 Mega Mewtwo X with Fire Blast. Insane attack stats, great speed, and decent defenses. So awesome.
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
Charizard Could Get Through All Gyms and is powerful on its stats(:
While Pokemon that has higher every single stats than charizard exists.
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.
The best pokemon when it is a "oh shoot I think I'll lose this one" moment. Charizard will take you by surprise and after using Charizard for a while you'll fall in love with using it
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
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:
Also Metagross is a really powerful Pseudo Legendary and Excadrill is a mole that can turn into a drill. Which one do you think is going to be better?
Pretty good. But if there was one thing I would change is its speed.
Best Pokemon I have ever used. Who doesn't want a psychic steel Pokemon! Barely anything is super effective over it
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:
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
I agree with what people say about Hydreigon. It has amazing stats, an awesome design, and a great move pool. It's weakness to Fairy is crippling in this new meta, (Mega Gardevoir SLAYS) and it takes forever to evolve (THANKS, UNOVA), but I feel like this forgotten pseudo-legendary needs some boosts, like a Mega, or a Gigantamax form, or even a better ability like Sheer Force.
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!
Uber tier without mega evolution and also capable of mega evolution as well
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:
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.
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.
With he's great fighting skills and strength he is hard to take down. I have him he mega evolves and that's when it gets fun
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!
My fellow companions, you are in good luck! Check out this insane moveset:
Psychic-No dark types YAY!
Gengar is my favorite Pokemon because it super cool and I love the details of the card and it's colors are awesome!
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 is pretty good it is probably the best pokemon for gen 1 and is probably even the best non legendary in gen 1
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.
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
Greninja is one of my favourite Pokemon, he is one of the strongest on my team
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
It is a very nice and cool looking Pokémon. It have amazing pool of moves, but I really wish they could make his Water Shuriken move stronger
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.
One of favorites by far. Has quiver dance (one of the best boosting moves in the game) and fiery dance which has 80 power and 100% accuracy not to mention it has a 50% chance of raising your attack. Once its on a roll there's no stopping this beast. also its possibly the best 5th gen Pokemon for competitive battling.
Brilliant pokemon, must always have one in my team!
Wow, a fish Pokemon that was the weakest, turns into Gyarados.
He is good
HYPER BEAM IS SO GOOD (so is hydro pump dragon rage and flamethrower) yep it knows flamethrower
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.
Swords Dance + Dragon Fang/ Muscle Band + Attack EV Training + Outrage= Perfect Physical Sweeper,
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
He's the fire master and he's really useful in Pokemon tournament
Mega blaziken can't have blaze idiot
I don't think megas count...
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.
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.
What an idiotic way of saying that a Pokemon is strong by comparing it to a someone ( Charizard) who has a type disadvantage. True blastoise is decently strong but its lower speed is something that hurts given that most dragon types have access to electric type moves. In that regard charizard is more suitable starter especially against lance.
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.
Arcanine is a boss! He has all around high stats, because he was originally meant to be legendary. Also he can learn great moves, and if his ability is intimidate, he can destroy
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.
This thing is beast with 150 attack and special attack stats
If I remember correctly, the only non-mega/legendary in uber. Nostalgia is taking over this list
Kings shield transformation and battle forms/stance, impenetrable.
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.
My best friend in Emerald was my Flygon named Drake. I wish I could finish (or at least buy finished copies of) the DS games so I could transfer him or one of his babies to the newest games.
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 is so strong for example in the sinnoh league quarterfinals ash's infernape got poisoned and damaged badly but it still managed to beat electivire after it took a tiny bit of damage from gliscor infernape is so strong who says a pokemon is stronger than it? Whoever does makes no sense!
He is really power full my infernape can kill a Pokemon really easily because of speed
I don't believe it, why is Infernape the 70th strongest, and Sableye is 68th?
Infernape is way stronger than Sableye.
I've got a level 70 Infernape in Diamond, haven't even beat the Elite 4 but he's a monster. Makes every other Pokemon on my team pathetic.
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
Sceptile crushes anything with signature move dual chop.#Rami.
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.
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.
REALLY #19 when Charizard is #5 this guy is a million times better. He has ONE weakness: grass (although it is a 4-times increase). He makes up for this by being able to learn ice-type move, such as ice beam, ice punch, avalanche, and blizzard, and could easily defeat every single Pokémon on this list.
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
Definitely the best Hoenn starter and one of the best water starters. The water/ground typing gives him immunity to electric moves, a resistance to rock moves (good on a water Pokemon) and a resistance to fire (good on a ground Pokemon). In the original gen 3 games, a great thing about Swampert was the ability to learn earthquake naturally (there was only 1 earthquake TM and it was late in the game). His weaker ground attacks are very useful early game too. This Pokemon is mainly a physical attacker, but despite being stuck with special water and ice moves in gen 3 it was still good. Swampert can use ice moves against grass pokemon, but he's slow, so switch him out anyway. In gen 4, Swampert got access to physical water and ice moves, and in the remakes he got a mega evolution, which boosts his stats and has the swift swim ability to fix Swampert's speed under rain. Swampert is effective against a lot of stuff ingame, he has only one weakness and there is no grass-type gym in Hoenn.
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
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.
Killer steel type but a bit slow. It has a strong defense and a good set of TM moves.
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 thought Snorlax was a legendary pretty much because its OP
He is very strong. in Pokemon sword I keep trying to catch him but he just escapes and it is to late in the year to catch his G max form.
Snorlax should be way higher on this list! He can learn almost any tm or hm, his hp and attack are really high, and his abilities are good too! SCREW DRAGONITE, TYRANITAR, GO WITH SNORLAX! 1!
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
