Top Ten Strongest Non Legendary Pokemon

cedar99

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 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 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.

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

Well its strong ;-;

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

Tyrant are is great because of its attack #1

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

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

Charizard is terrible. Rocks.

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

Mega Salamence has the bulk and power to defeat some of the strongest legendaries, with just one dragon dance (Example: If given the right amount EVS, it can take a dragon ascent from mega rayquaza and defeat it with dragon rush,and cause serious damage with dragon tail, return, giga impact, and facade, since they are aerialate boosted moves). On top of that, it has the special stat to be a special attacker, and is given reliable recovery with roost. But go on and say dragonite is still better. I dare you. Because Salamence even looks cooler, and at least he has a mega evolution.

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

he's good

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

Can learn a variety of coverage moves and also tri attack one of the best moves in my opinion

8 Metagross Metagross

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

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

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!

Screw lucario I used against clemont and it got screwed I used my metang that I received from my brother and it screwed him up if I defeated one more magneton it could have leveled metagross is the strongest pseudo legendary. or salamence is I love them both

9 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 ...read more.

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

Gyarados is truly a brilliant pokemon. With the rare combination of Water/Flying, its only real weakness is electric type moves. It now has an immunity to ground types. Though, it would make more sense if its mega evolution was water/dragon instead of water/dark. That might too overpowered then.

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.

Child just look it has a third eye and I think that it is bad-ass cause it's not even psychic

LIK LUVDASK IS MY BEA SHE IS LIKE THE MOST OP TGAMG EVER LIKE STAY WOOK LAVDESK - HydroTail

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!

Good

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.

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

Greninja must deserve to be in the TOP TEN because they are very fast and very good at dodging attacks except if it is in the air and my greninja defeated a volcarona a lot of times without even a defeat it could easily defeat fire types which volcarona is so with these facts greninja should be in the TOP TEN!

Greninja is just as good as dodging attacks as other pokemon, and it can defeat fire types perhaps even worse than other water types. However, its ability protean, is what makes it amazing. - Rayquasar

This Pokémon is beast why not vote him he is fast and does good damage don't mind his defense and why is a damn luvdisc higher than him?

13 Alakazam Alakazam

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.

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

Alakazam's special attack is out of this world

He sucks! Alakazam was Buddhism! I'm Christianity! So this is probably the worst thing ever. He's the meditation butt!

14 Arcanine Arcanine

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.

WOW ITS HIM

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.

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

Awesome one

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

My blastoise roshi kills every thing

18 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.

Same as charizard but learns way better mloves

19 Mega Blaziken

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.

Mega blaziken can't have blaze idiot

I don't think megas count...

Yeb the best

20 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!

Flygon's type and movepool make this guy a versatile monster.
