Top Ten Strongest Pokemon Trainers

A new and less creative list. Enjoy. Put any trainer you think is deserving on here.

The Top Ten

1 Red Red is a Pokémon Trainer from Pallet Town, Kanto. He is the first character to be playable in the Pokémon series and his initial appearance is set in the Generation I main games. He has since then made various appearances in Pokémon media, including the Generation III remakes of Red, Green, Blue, more.

I believe he is THE strongest trainer ever..

Red is Better Trainer
Ash Ketchum sucks

Lonewolf he is

he is op

2 Ash Ash Ketchum, known as Satoshi in Japan, is a fictional character in the Pokémon franchise owned by Nintendo. Ash is training to be a Pokemon Master, with his buddy Pikachu. Ash tries to stop the evil Team Rocket from stealing his Pikachu.

Ash is the only one why the Pokemon is now here.

He's the strongest trainer! God so strong!

Ash is the best

He is just awesome and the way he train his Pokemon's is fabulous. And no one could do like him

3 Cynthia

Strongest champion - cynthia
Strongest trainer in game - red

Most op trainer ever - tobias

1. Cynthia
2. Steven
3. Diantha
4. Alder
5. Lance - HunterX249

Regardless if it's the anime or the games, she's overpowered. Her team is way too strong and can counter any type.

What?! Ash second? The top ten STRONGEST trainers! This list is so wrong!

4 Alain

I think Alan is #1

Ok. I have to admit, Alain would only fall as number 3, above Tobias and Ash, but under Red and Cynthia. What truly makes him one of, if not, the strongest Pokemon trainer in the anime is his consistent feats of power, like survive intense battling with Primal Groudon, Primal Kyogre and even Mega Rayquaza. - AidanYYao

I know charizard is overrated but still every time I see it is so cool

He lost to sieblod

5 Tobias

A trainer who was so op that he only needed 2 pokemon to finish the entire league

1. Tobias
2. Cynthia
3. Red (anime)

1. Tobias (final boss)
2. Champions
3. Elite 4
4. League winners
5. Frontier brains
6. Rivals
7. Gym leaders
8. Others - HunterX249

He is OP

6 Lance

This guy is a champion - HunterX249

He’s so cool and he is such a champion! He has so much talent

Ma boi da best champion since gold/silver

Lance is strong but I think that Steven would kick his butt in a champion battle lol - Brensa

7 Blue

Ash and Blue should be switched, Blue is clearly second best trainer.


8 Steven

He is way stronger than alain...his metagross tanked a blastburn from charizard like nothing - HunterX249

Steven is the Hoenn champion and almost beat Alain until Lysandre interupted. Alain is number 6 and he beat Ash who is number2. I think Steven should be number2 if not number 1

9 Iris Iris is from the Pokemon bwhite version & Pokemon black 2 & white. She ether was the gym leader in Opelucid city in white version. She first appeared to aid Bianca, Burgh, and the playable character when Bianca's Munna was stolen, & acted as a bodyguard. In Black 2 & White 2, she was the champion. Iris more.
10 Korrina Korrina is a fictional character in the Pokémon Series as the Shalour City Gym leader in the XY series, in the anime she's a cheerful girl with a explosive personality she has a Lucario who she raised and grew up with from when it was a Riolu, she was later tasked by her grandfather Gurkinn with finding more.

Korrina is so strong. No wonder she one 100 battles in a row.

great - 766925

100 battles in a row one by her. - Nica_Pierce

The Contenders

11 N

What the heck N has reshiram and zekrom and has the power to take red's team down

12 Giovanni
13 Gold

Yeah he battled red in the game but if it were for real I don't think he'll win against red but he defeated team rocket, got 2 as much badges as red and of course caught legendaires. And explored Johto and Kanto so I think he is a very good opponent and trainer. Maybe even the strongest but who knows...

Gold defeated red this guy has lugia and ho-oh under his sleeves along with entei and typhlosion

He beat Red for goodness sake - TealBoyxx

I say gold and for good reason number one ash sucks and can't win anything two he defeated all of the same gym leaders like red in Kanto and also jhoto defeated the elite four also took down team rocket like red also beat lance a champion blue a former champion and then even beat red in the end which means he is the strongest.

14 Brandon

He is super strong when he uses regi trio. - HunterX249

How is brendan in such a low position. He is an awesome trainer and the way he travels hoenn, he is around red.

15 Silver

He is op

16 Ghetsis Ghetsis Harmonia, or simply Ghetsis, is the main antagonist in Pokemon Black and White and the direct sequels, as well as the adoptive father of N, Concordia, and Athea.

Ghetesis is very very very very powerful and strong he is the leader of team plasma and he controlled reshiram with the control system in the black and white saga of the anime - Brensa

17 Diantha

Y a s~ My strongest trainer among girls in the whole series boise. Her & Gradevoir has such a wonderful bond with each other! The way Gardevoir dodges attacks via eye contact with Diantha is very unique. Diantha is very beautiful too! OwO

18 Paul

How is bonni on here and not pawl pawl coukd easily take most of the peopel on this list

19 Flint

His infernape is the only pokemon in the anime that gave a tough competetion to cynthia's garchomp.
Caitlin barely survives due to time limit.

Though they had a dispute once they fought over a rusty pokeball they wanted for luck, which broke after they fought over it . Gary was the grandson of professor oak .

28 Lucas
29 Professor Kukui Professor Kukui is a fictional character introduced in Pokémon Sun and Moon. He is a Pokémon Professor from the Alola region, as well as the founder of Alola's Pokémon League.

How could anyone not vote for kukui?! He is the masked royal and he created the alola league!

He was a pain is the butt to defeat in the Pokemon league but that's just my personal experience I agree that Cynthia is much stronger

30 Clement Clemont originates in Pokemon XY, created by Nintendo & game freak. is a gym leader of the lumoise city. He specialized in electric Pokemon and is known as a genius. more.

Clemont is a really strong pokemon trainer. No wonder he is so strong. He has a really really good passion for science. He likes inventing stuff like devices and robots that help pokemon like Clembot

Clemont is a really strong trainer. he would have beat ash if his luxray had not fainted.
