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

People say gold beat red. That was a game where red was computer who knows nothing while gold was player. If that battle was competitive red eats gold in his dinner

Red can sweep every other pokemon trainer's team with only his pikachu!

Why is Red number 1? He's no stronger than any other game protagonists. - yungstirjoey666

Red > Ash
I'd still be watching Pokémon if Red was the main character instead of this new kawaii looking ash

2 Ash

What?! I truly think he's pretty bad as a trainer. Sure, a good protagonist in the show, but he would've been crushed by anyone who has any knowledge of the games. - keycha1n

I think I would set no.2 as steven as he is champion and has Metagross That can mega evolve..And don't forget he can defeat Alan while ash can't.

Ash may not be the best, but he's not the worst either. He's destined to make mistakes, because that's what Pokemon trainers do at times. - yungstirjoey666

Ash I love you so much. Why do people think about you crazy. I know you can't beat red,but you can surely beat anyone if there is a list of pokemon lovers

3 Alain Alain

Too strong

Ok Alain is my fave XYZ character he is so powerful and he helped stop the giant rock from coming into contact with the sundial that scene made me mad but happy even though I love Lysander still hate team flare even though Lysander is my baby lol - Brensa

He can beat Ash,Zyguard,and Kalos League

He defeated ten Pokémon trainers with one Mega Pokémon with just his one Pokémon Charizard... and Ash never won against him

4 Cynthia Cynthia

Still haven't beat her and I beat every other game I played

Uh she's below ash for some reason...

Cynthia is just so far the best pokemon trainer and the champion! of course, she along with her mighty garchomp can take down anyone, in the anime while she was shown battling she just so took every challenge so seriously and fight with a free and ignited spirit..naah she was not even ever close to defeat she won all the battles she had in the anime #CYNTHIA_THE_CHAMPION @THE_BEST

She is easily extremely
Such a bad ass

5 Blue


6 Iris 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.
7 N

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

8 Giovanni
9 Steven

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

10 Korrina 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 Newcomers

? Professor Kukui 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.

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

The Contenders

11 Dawn Dawn Dawn is a character from Nintendo and Game Freak's Pokémon franchise. In the games diamond, pearl, and platinum version she was one of the playable characters you can choose from. She will be an assistant for professor Rowan if you choose her male counterpart, Lucas. more.
12 Brock Brock Brock is a character from Pokemon and is created by game freak & Nintendo. He was the first gym leader in pewter city, and specializes in rock Pokemon . more.


13 Gold

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.

He was in my opinion better then even red because he got 16 gym badges became champion of kanto/jhoto cleaned up reds mess and truly took out team Rocket helped silver (rival in silver and gold) became a great trainer and care for his Pokemon. And oak told him to go to mount silver knowing he would defeat red and bring him back to his senses (technicaly he doesn’t beat red however because they never state he comes back form mount silver and there was no Witnesses of the battle due to red leaving and gold supposedly staying in mount silver after the event)

14 May May May is a female companion to Ash in the generation 3 anime. She was also the female character in Ruby, Sapphire, Emerald, Omega Ruby, and Alpha Sapphire. May (anime) debuted in the 275th episode, "Get the Show on the Road!" She was going to be a trainer, but wasn't excited about it. After meeting a more.
15 Silver
16 Tobias

Tobias is the strongest pokemon trainer of all time. Undoubtedly.

Tobias and Cynthia are the strongest of all time.
Waiting for their battle...

Tobias is so strong that he took down the hole of the gyms in sinnoh with just darkrai. Alright it is a darkrai but he must be a incredibly skilled to catch a darkrai. Plus he took down the hole of the sinnoh league with just darkrai (if you disclude is fight against ash in the semi-finals). Although we (as a community) don’t know his whole team just imagine what power houses he has. Darkrai Latios may be the only Pokémon we know of I predict his team is:
Darkrai,latios,cresselia,heatran,regigigas and shaymin
He could have magikarp and febass for his team but I doubt that. That’s all I have to say if your convinced now please add and message. I’m in team fenekin. #FENEKIN off subject. Tobias is not my favorite trainer I’m just very knowledgeable about Pokémon. #FENEKIN

17 Lance

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

18 Professor Oak Professor Oak

He has been a champion of the indigo league beat agatha when she was in her prime youth and quit the elite four because of their evil intentions he defeated green without losing any health in his pokemon and is blues grandpa.

IN the red and blue games you can fight him with a glitch and he is insanely tough

19 Ghetesis

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

20 Lucas
21 Brendan

He has three legendary Pokémon

22 Gary Oak Gary Oak Gary oak appeared in the anime series in seasons 1-5 . He was ash's rival and childhood friend . 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 . He had cheerleaders & his own car. more.

He is pretty good as a trainer.

Good. Pokemon catcher

23 Colress Colress

In ultra sun/moon he thwarted ghetsis's plans by sending him back to his dimension. And he was so strong and intelligent that he was made a team plasma BOSS.

24 Blunder

Thunderblunder is an amazing spl ou player

25 Heaven Jay

cap lord

26 Sawyer Sawyer

He uses the best straitege ever - 766925

27 Misty Misty Misty, known as Kasumi in Japan, is a fictional character in the Pokémon franchise owned by Nintendo and created by Satoshi Tajiri. She’s the gym leader in Cerulean city & specializes in water Pokemon. In the games, she’s known as ‘the tomboy mermaid.’ more.

In Kalos, Where Dreams and Adventures Begin!, she refused to wake up when Grace ordered her to, and gave a sassy response to her mother's call to watch the news. This tumultuous relationship more.
29 Whitney Whitney

Whitney is too strong for 3rd Gym Leader in my opinion - Cubea

30 Diantha 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
