Top Ten Strongest Non Legendary Pokemon


The Contenders: Page 2

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.

Best fire pokemon
I don't believe in which place is on infernape

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'm not surprised Aggron is this high because of how popular he is. With the non legendaries Metagross and Magnezone out do him. - Bullfrog762

23 Swampert Swampert

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

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.

Yo the best

24 Spiritomb Spiritomb

My level 9 spirit tomb killed my friends level 49 slowpoke

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

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

Sableye is definitely better because it is much more common and it has a mega evolution

25 Empoleon Empoleon

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.

Empoleon has great typing as well

26 Sceptile Sceptile

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.

One of the best Pokemon and is a great starter. Also is the fastest starter Pokemon overall. My Sceptile managed to knock out a Dexoys in one hit with a single Leaf Blade. It is a great Pokemon overall and I do not understand how it is so low down. My other votes would of gone to Arcanine, Poliwrath or Gyarados.

Mega evolve he is just like charizard badass fastest special attacking starter

27 Mega Lucario

Mega lucario is so cool! It makes dragonite look like a wimp!
If you throw a stone at dragonite it will go running away, crying to his mommy! If you throw a boulder at mega
Lucario he won't even flinch! Curse you haters!

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

Mega lucario is the best he should be top 5!

28 Snorlax

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

Snorlax is the best, he has good defense, great attack and can learn almost every move

Snorlax isn't really as good as people say. Don't get me wrong, he is good. But he does have issues such as his movepool - Bullfrog762

29 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

Exactly makes. No sence why is it ranked 30 when normal gar chomp is like 6th or something

30 Aegislash Aegislash Aegislash is a fictional creature in the Pokemon Franchise. Introduced in Gen 6, it is a Steel/Ghost Pokemon. It is the evolved form of Doublade, and the final evolve form of Honedge. Classified as the Royal Sword Pokemon, it is said to detect innate qualities of leadership. According to legend, anyone more.

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.

This thing is beast with 150 attack and special attack stats

Kings shield transformation and battle forms/stance, impenetrable.

Aegislash is defiantly a hall of fame pokemon. His ability and movepool surpass any ghost or steel type he competes with. - Bullfrog762

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

32 Ditto Ditto

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.


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.

So good - 1507563

33 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

34 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.

This pokemon is one of two reasons why I beat Iris in pokemon black 2, the other being Arcanine. If samurott gets a mega It would be one of the best pokemon of all time

So cool! I love it!

35 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!

Remember zoroark is still competing with other good dark types like darkrai or absol but its like ditto with more capability

36 Gallade Gallade

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?

Why is Gallade in #36? He should be in the top 10, or at least 20! Here's why, His weaknesses: Fairy, ghost, and flying. For ghost types teach him shadow ball, For flying Thunderbolt, and Fairy... Just use a strong move! Gallade also has excellent speed and strength so hitting first and strong shouldn't be a problem! He also has a huge variety of moves, I remember when I first caught ralts, and accidentally turned it into Gardevoir... But then I tried again... And still got a Gardevoir, but then I googled it and finally got Gallade, he wrecked the elite 4 and Steven. Point is, This guys a beast.

37 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

So cool but vaporeon is better - 1507563

38 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.

It has amazing type advantages

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

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!

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

He can murder a draginite ant level 60. I have a level 100 and he dominates over any Pokemon with brave bird alone

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!

This pokemon was so old first blaziken
"Cool it's a fire fightin type! "
Then infernape
"Another fire fightin type game freak this is getting old"
Then emboar
"Another fire fightin type?! WHY GAME FREAK WHY?!? "
