Top 10 Strongest Pokemon

The Top Ten

1 Arceus Arceus Arceus is a legendary Pokémon from the Pókemon series. He first appeared in the 18th Pokémon movie alongside other Legendary Pokémon.

Can change its type and it is a god and the creator of pokemon

He doesn't need to change types. He can use any type of move at any time, in his most powerful form, Normal Type. - Geogeta

It's justified to be the strongest of all pokemon because it created the rest of them. Also those shards are really helpful and kickass

I don't believe that arceus is number 1. I thought arceus would be third or second. He is the strongest sayian in history
Without him no one can get destroyed. He has more than thousand forms.

Why do you say he shouldn't be number 1 if you just called him the strongest - Espeon52308

I think Arceus is the best Pokemon because Arceus has the ability Multitype, which is an ability exclusive only to this Pokémon. Multitype allows Arceus to change its type based on whichever plate it is currently holding, E.G. holding the Flame Plate makes it the Fire-Type. Likewise, a Splash Plate will make it a Water-Type. Generation VI introduced Fairy type, so Arceus can be a Fairy Type upon having Pixie Plate.

According to the Pokédex, Arceus in mythology is said to have shaped the Universe with its "1,000 " arms, though, due to Arceus not actually having any arms, it can safely be assumed that the "1,000 arms" are metaphorical. The "1,000" arms could be Arceus's move "Judgement" but this is still unknown. It has also been stated that Arceus created the Legendary Titans (otherwise known as the Dragon Trio) Dialga, Palkia, and surprisingly Giratina, as well as the Lake Guardian Trio (also known as the Lake Spirits) Uxie, Mesprit, and Azelf. Arceus can also easily hold off ...more

2 Mewtwo Mewtwo Mewtwo is a fictional creature from Nintendo and Game Freak's Pokémon media franchise. It was created by Dr. Fuji in an attempt to clone Mew.

This is the only pokemon that was created by man to become the most strongest pokemon no other pokemon than mew will stand against mewtwo

Mewtwo is the best
Mewtwo is number one always. He has awesome stats. He can learn basically any move. When I go up against the elite four I can use him and only him I do not have to use any potion either because all of hits hits are ko's

Mewtwo has no gender. But yea, it is one of the strongest pokemon. - pokemonrater

Come on people who puts charizard before mewtwo he should be first this is the strongest pokemon not which one you like best, as for arceus he is over rated that's all mewtwo is king

Mewtwo is the strongest because if Mew created all Pokemon (except Dialga, Palkia, Arceus, Azelf, Uxie, Mesprit and Mewtwo) Arceus didn'NT create mewtwo. Mewtwo was created from science. The battle will be Science vs. Nature. In the game, when arceus and mewtwo fight, Mewtwo wins.
Arceus can't learn every move, so he can't copy mewtwo, and mewtwo was proven the most powerful Pokemon.
Mewtwo is much stronger and Arceus is extremely overrated.
Mewtwo would definitely win. Mewtwo can erase and control the minds of humans and Pokemon. Arceus 17 plates would be useless against him because Arceus's multitype is a SPECIAL ABILITY - Mewtwo can block the special abilities of other Pokemon.

3 Rayquaza Rayquaza Rayquaza is a Legendary Pokémon species in Nintendo and Game Freak's Pokémon franchise. It lives in the ozone layer, and frequently stops battles with Kyogre and Groudon, two other Legendaries.

it has a strong hyper beam and can take down both kyogre and groudon

Rayquaza can be defeated by both arceus (ice type) and articuno since they two are ice type. - kormo

Rayquaza is strongest Pokemon ever it took out my darkai level 100 when is was level 50 and on full health so vote for this good Pokemon. Come on it is so good it barley ever loses to other Pokemon it has never lost to any Pokemon apart from my lugia

Darkrai isn't great... what are you trying to prove here? That rayquaza can take out a weak pokemon? Big deal! - JoeysRattata

This is the best pokemon ever, why isn't it on the too 10! Hyper beam could take out anyone! It is realty cool! It is even a super smash brawl boss! Why, why, why isn't it number one! It could knock out either one of dialga or palkia!

No, dialga could knock out rayquaza because its also a steel type, which is resistant to normal, dragon, and flying

In my opinion, this Pokemon is so much better than Arceus, not only because it has more stat total than Arceus when mega evolved but also because this Pokemon can mega evolve without a mega stone, which means it can hold any items while in it's mega form like Life Orb, unlike the other mega Pokemon which needs mega stone. Plus, Rayquaza also has Delta Stream as it's mega form's ability which can remove Rayquaza's flying typing's weakness to Rock and Ice. Further more, Arceus is also placed in Anything Goes tier for Pokemon Showdown, all of the reasons are from what I just mention, though, Pokemon Showdown has different battle system than normal Pokemon games does but it's still worth mentioning to be honest. But this is just my opinion, I just wanna tell you guys the reason why this Pokemon is so much better than Arceus, so, I hope you respect my opinion. - Hoenn4Ever

4 Mew Mew Mew is one of the fictional species of creatures from Nintendo's and Game Freak's Pokémon media franchise created by Satoshi Tajiri.

This pokemon is the one that defeated mewtwo

It can learn every move and can transform into any Pokemon! Plus it's cute and playful! Best Pokemon EVER! - sharkfin1997

Mew can learn any Tm or Hm plus he was the best Pokemon until arcues came along

This pokemon is practically stronger than Arceus because Mew can transform into it. - Silentwhisker

5 Giratina Giratina Giratina is a Pokémon species in Nintendo and Game Freak's Pokémon franchise. Created by Ken Sugimori, Giratina first appeared in the video games Pokémon Diamond and Pearl, but gained prominence in the sister game, Pokémon Platinum, which it was made the mascot of.


Granting should be up the top! It's just as strong as Dialga and Palkia and in the Shaymin movie it was smashing Dialga!

By Giratina Giratina Orgin Form Is wich you can get with arcues in the Alpha Ruins Or Just Trade it to Pokemon Black and white

Yeah, arceus is god, but giratina is the god of the distortion world, and it can destroy the whole real world if it wanted to

6 Dialga Dialga Dialga, known in Japan as the same name, is a Legendary Pokémon species in Nintendo and Game Freak's Pokémon franchise.

Dialga with his adamant orb and roar of time it can beat any pokemon in one move, Dragon Type Dragon Type Move Adamant Orb already 2.0 damage and the move is already ridiculously strong with 150 power. Also without this move Flash Cannon, Aura Sphere, and Earth Power are more than enough to take down anything with Dialga's Insane special attack.

Dialga could destroy everything as arceus gave him time. He could stop time and wreck the world!

This one just rocks...!
Should be on top for its power and elegance
Awesomely cool...
What else do you want?

Lord of time, is that enough?

7 Darkrai Darkrai Darkrai, known in Japan as the same name, is a Legendary Pokémon species in Nintendo and Game Freak's Pokémon franchise.

This is the Pokemon that stopped palkia and dialga

Yeah, in the anime maybe. In game (where it counts) he sucks compared to Palkia and dialga. - 8chAnonymous

The Evil Super Dark Pokemon Is ALSO AWESOME!

Darkrai is the number one Pokemon for me because he stoped the 2 strongest Pokemon from fighting and its very strong when you look at him in a Pokemon vcard version so he for me is my favourite and remember, darkrai is always nuber 1!

Honestly even in game he can beat the top pokemon on this list. I took out my friends whole team with just darkrai (he used arceus, keldeo, reshiram and other legendaries). because my darkrai has timid nature he goes first like all the time so I just put them all to sleep with dark void and used calm mind heaps and just swept his whole team with dark pulse.

8 Lugia Lugia Lugia, known in Japan as the same name, is a Legendary Pokémon species in Nintendo and Game Freak's Pokémon franchise.

As seen in the pokemon movie the power of one, this pokemon can talk like meowth, cool right?! Its so powerful that he lies in the bottom of the ocean, one flap of its wings can cause a 40 day storm, one of its signature move is aeroblast, its just huffin air and blasting it!

how is lugia not in the top 10?! he is my favourite and definitely the strongest pokemon - decorulez97

HOW come its at Number 14? ITS AEROBLAST Could take out any Pokemon

False, Sky Attack does more damage, and even that won't take out most of the competitive gods, whether legend or not. - SpectralKyurem

Is the best I bet a rainbow card with it

V 465 Comments
9 Palkia Palkia Palkia, known in Japan as the same name, is a Legendary Pokémon species in Nintendo and Game Freak's Pokémon franchise.

Palkia is totally awesome! It's like the first Pokemon in a movie to actually nearly destroy the whole main town plus it's the guardian of space which makes it EPIC!

Palkia's powerful move spacial rend can destroy a building, if not distracted by weak Pokemon.

He should at least be third and dialga fourth because or both ranked fourth
because this is like palkia dialga and giratina are the first strongest trio and palkia is my most favorite pokemon.

Palkia is so strongest pokemon

10 Kyurem Kyurem Kyurem, known in Japan as the same name, is a Legendary Pokémon species in Nintendo and Game Freak's Pokémon franchise.


Why do you have the need to write in block Caps? Your opinion would have made the same sense if you had written it with normal letters. - Akalyptos

Kyurem is super strong and is the Girantina of the Unova dragon trio! It can flash freeze everything around it and is the only Pokemon that truly scares me. - sharkfin1997

An ice type dragon, that can change into a fire or electric type, and destroy a train system. No wonder its called "The most powerful dragon. "

It's typing makes it
1: Normal damage when attacked by other dragons
2: MURDER when attacking other dragons
3: When it's typing doesn't work at the moment, you always have Zekrom and Reshiram

11 Deoxys Deoxys Deoxys, known in Japan as the same name, is a Legendary Pokémon species in Nintendo and Game Freak's Pokémon franchise.

Strongest Alien, and its true He did smash rayquaza in the movie!
Plus he has a lot of moves that are really tough and effect very much

Sickest pokemon ever

12 Mega Rayquaza Mega Rayquaza

It needs to be higher up. It has been banned in many tournaments because of the fact that it doesn't need a mega stone to evolve, and it's signature move, Dragon Ascent, can destroy in the battle. Also it's stats total is 780, which is HIGHER than Mewtwo, with a whopping 680. It's also higher than Arceus, the GOD OF POKEMON. Also it's ability is straight up broken. Ice type moves will do EVEN LESS. ROCK TYPE MOVES BECAUSE x1 EFFECTIVE. This needs to be higher.

Why is mega rayquaza, below normal rayquaza. Needs to be higher up.
For a lot of reasons.

How is its non-evolved counter part higher than its mega evolution?

Yeah mega rayquaza should be one because he can hold something like life orb or leftovers and still mega evolve

It has the most highest base stat of all Pokemon

It was Pokemon killer of the world.

14 Groudon Groudon Groudon, known in Japan as the same name, is a Legendary Pokémon species in Nintendo and Game Freak's Pokémon franchise.

Groudon's weaknesses are water, ice and grass. Drought (Groudon's ability that makes the sun shine) lowers water's effectiveness and ups fire's (which is super effective against ice and grass). Kyogre's ability makes thunder have a 100% hit chance. Kyogre has nothing on Groudon.

I would put groudon in the same place as kyogre, but only because kyogre is super effective. Stat wise, Groudon kicks.

Didn't you see the movie jirachi : the wish maker Ground on was so amazing! As well as full of power!

No, it's a horrible legendary.

15 Zekrom Zekrom Zekrom, known in Japan as the same name, is a Legendary Pokémon species in Nintendo and Game Freak's Pokémon franchise.

Zekrom has outstanding attack! Its moves fusion bolt and bolt strike can hurt a Pokemon badly!

It's awesome! Because it van use Fusion bolt and other cool moves and zekrom should be 1 2 or 3 in unova so please have a good vote because he's my favorite pokemon

Zekrom is a black and white pokemon. And it is better than charizard in the pokemon pokedex list of pokemon with states pokemon data base.

It is awesome with hone claws and bolt strike based on his attack

16 Magikarp Magikarp Magikarp, known in Japan as Koiking, is a Pokémon species in Nintendo and Game Freak's Pokémon franchise. It resembles an orange fish with whiskers. It was created by Ken Sugimori, Magikarp first appeared in the video games Pokémon Red and Blue and subsequent sequels. It is a water type that evolves more.

Strongest Pokemon. EVER. No one can own it with it's infinity damage Splash.

Unfortunately, it's so infinitely powerful, it does absolutely nothing. - Rayquasar

The only reason why Splash doesn't do any damage is because its power goes around twice on the HP bar so you don't notice the damage. In reality, any of your Pokemon that has battled a Magikarp has fainted at least once. You can tell they fainted because they hate you after every Magikarp battle.

All you have to do with this guy is - Splash

Splash can kill hoards of monsters in one hit. Splash BOOM BOOM BOOM

How can you not love this pokemon? BEST POKEMON EVER!

Why do people think that Arceus is so good, really Arceus, He's the god of Pokemon, highest stats of ALL Pokemon, So what, he learns judgment, wow it's so exiting, NOT! So we got a better Pokemon here, MAGIKARP. Take away the arp, that's what it is. It can learn SPLASH! Did you here in the games Pokemon black and white it says "A magikarp that lives for years can jump over mountains", that's right, OVER MOUNTAINS! Magikarp can do a lot more, but I can't fill the hole page about the awesomeness of Magikarp so by.

Water, electric, fire and a flying dragon pokémon.

a lone wolf? A kick-ass dragon that will own anything you put un front of it and then cuddle its trainer

18 Xerneas Xerneas Xerneas is a fictional creature in the Pokemon Franchise. Introduced in Gen 6, it is a legendary Fairy type Pokemon, and the mascot of Pokemon X. Classified as the Life Pokemon, Xerneas has the ability to give eternal life, which occurs when the horns on its head shine in seven lights. When its life more.

Great card help me win more cards

I have him and he has 230 health and does 1000 damage to opponents! he is one of my favorites!

Xerneas should be ranked in the top 10 since it’s a fairy type which is resistant to a bunch and powerful against dragon types and almost know on has resistance to fairy types...

Xerneas is a new Pokemon in kalos region and is a good example of the fairy type Pokemon as Xerneas has the power to beat yveltal however a legendary normally can't beat the enemy legendary Pokemon even though this is shown with the three legendary birds zapdos, articuno and moltres so therefore Xerneas is like zapdos, a legendary Pokemon that can beat another. That's my opinion

19 Yveltal Yveltal Yveltal is a fictional creature in the Pokemon Franchise. Introduced in the 6th gen, Yveltal is a legendary Dark/Flying type Pokemon, and is the mascot of Pokemon Y. It is classified as the Destruction Pokemon. Yveltal has the ability to absorb life energy, and when its life comes to an end, it steals more.

No mater what you will lose if he dies you die or he just kills you so...yea

21 Reshiram Reshiram Reshiram, known in Japan as the same name, is a Legendary Pokémon species in Nintendo and Game Freak's Pokémon franchise.

In the legend Reshiram is equally as strong as Zekrom so why is it so much lower?

Reshiram should at least be next or close to Zekrom, maybe even higher because it has more special attack. It deserves a place in the top 10.

I have beat the elite 4 like 10 times with reshiram he only was he insta killed everyone just train him correctly and you will see what I mean

What, scizor is just one of the most perfect pokémon ever!
Bug/steel type, only week to fire, can learn almost every high priority move and has Technician! Even with is lost of speed (compared to his pre-evo), he can strike first with a hell of an attack power... And if he uses swords dance, baby he is invincible. Ever tried to use a 1hp scizor with 3 stages of swords dance and the reversal (I think it is this one) attack? And if you had one stage agility to him, he is indestructible. And believe me, with a speed team like ninjask, furret and others with agility, swords dance and baton pass, a technician scizor with, reversal, quick attack, bullet punch and pursuit/swords dance, and with that item that, if he is attack by a fire move (with full hp), it can survive with 1hp, congratulations, you win the game. (best strategy, ninjask/furret/other, one agility and one swords dance, with substitute for support, then baton pass (with substitute), one swords dance with scizor (opponent ...more

27 Ditto Ditto Ditto, known in Japan as Metamon, is a Pokémon species in Nintendo and Game Freak's Pokémon franchise.

Just as good as any other. - booklover1

Ditto and Mewtwo shouldn't be considered Pokemon. They were both created. Both of them were supposed to be Mew. One turned into Mewtwo and the other turned into Ditto. My point is that they were created and Pokemon are not created by man. Some people claim that they saw Pokemon, but usually it's a cat with yellow paint with long fake Pikachu ears. That little costume was made by a person and it is not a real Pokemon. Well I'm not sure if this is true, but this is just my little theory.

Ditto. The awesome purple blob

Ditto takes your opponent's Pokemon and essentially turns it against that trainer. It copies any Pokemon

Cyndaquil was my very first pokemon and I remember every few minutes I'd yell to my bro, "It's level ten! It's level ten! Now it's level eleven! I was so psyched when I heard HG and SS were coming out! No other pokemon will ever compare to the memories us Typhlosion fans have with our pokemon!

30 Kyogre Kyogre Kyogre, known in Japan as the same name, is a Legendary Pokémon species in Nintendo and Game Freak's Pokémon franchise.

Obviously the majority of people voting in this list have no clue as to what "strong Pokemon" actually means. Kyogre gets a 150 base power move with 100% accuracy at full healthy which hits both of the opponent's Pokemon. On top of this, the move gets further boosted by the rain (which Kyogre infinitely summons due to Drizzle) and STAB(if you don't know what that is you shouldn't even be voting in the first place). This move comes from a base 150 special attack. It's disgustingly overpowered. The only things that can survive a Water Spout from a Kyogre (let alone KO the bloody thing) are bulky Ludicolo, Palkia, Kingdra, Shedinja, specially defensive Cresselia, specially defensive Water Arceus and Pokemon with Water Absorb, Dry Skin or Storm Drain as their ability. However Kyogre gets all the tools it needs to take out these Pokemon as well. Infinite accuracy Thunder in rain and Ice Beam round off all the coverage it needs, meaning the only thing that can check Kyogre fully ...more

*Ahem* For all the Kyogre-Lovers, I made a list that proved Kyogre is superior to Groudon:

Groudon and Kyogre are tied in base stat totals. However, Groudon takes a more physical approach than Kyogre. However, Groudon learns very few physical moves. Meanwhile, Kyogre takes a more special approach, and also learns mostly special moves.

Here is some more experiments I did to prove Kyogre is better than Groudon (but only competitively, of course):

1: Even if Groudon's ability replaces Kyogre, Kyogre will still have Ice Beam, which is still super-effective.

2: Kyogre's ability, Drizzle, does not just make Thunder have 100% accuracy. It also makes Hurricane have 100% accuracy. Moreover, Drizzle makes Water-type moves stronger, weakens Fire-type moves, and halves the damage from Solar Beam.

3: Groudon's ability, Drought, does NOT make Ground-type moves more powerful. In fact, Groudon only has 8 moves which actually help its ability. 7 are Fire-type moves, ...more

HOW is this #26? It's insane! With its water spout rain STAB 150 base Special Attack it does incredible amounts of damage, it's defenses are no slouch either. It also has great coverage options like Ice Beam and Thunder, I mean, are you convinced already? - lap

33 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 more.

Lucario is the best hands down. It's the coolest non-legendary pokemon ever created and even has a movie named after it. It may have many weaknesses but it has great move-set to back itself up. It can use its aura powers to locate anything and even battle while completely blinded as shown in the movie. Aura Sphere might not be it's signature move but it is just as powerful and it never misses! How cool is that? Plus Dragon types move don't even effect Lucario in a harmful way. Instead, it learns Dragon Pulse which it can use to counter any dragon type moves! I've heard many people say it's bad because it has many weakness but Lucario can almost always learn the very move needed to cover that weakness. Besides, Lucario being a fighting type means that it has a great attack stat and being a steel type it has a decent amount of defense too! To me that's like the best as you can get because they are like they core ingredients needed to make a strong and reliable pokemon! Now I'll show ...more - Legendary-Lucario99

He's like the badass of Pokemon. He's the kind of guy you know is tough. He could beat zoroark any day

Lucario is just so awesome! It was the first Pokemon to Mega Evolve! Come on people, there must be a deeper reason towards this than meets the eye! Why would Lucario of all Pokemon be chosen to be the first Pokemon to Mega Evolve? Because, Lucario is really a strong, cool, skilful, resilient, dependable, tough and the most epic Pokemon has to offer! Hands down! Lucario has incredible overall stats and has a wide variety of move pools that can cover all it's weaknesses! Not only that, but it's completely resistant to poison types! That just puts a whole type out of Lucario's reach! Okay, so Lucario has a bunch of weaknesses but again given Lucario knows the correct counter moves, Lucario can surpass and overcome those weaknesses with ease! Great moves such as, Extreme Speed (gives Lucario top priority in any battle! ), Close Combat (an awesome power packed move that harshly lowers defense and special defense which it makes up for as it is a steel type anyways! ), Aura Sphere (a 90 ...more

His reign of doom was finally over after he got banned from standard battling. Oh yeah, did I mention that he is a shark? A shark that lives out of the water?

Arcanine is amazing and it has fire speels

Arcanine can learn amazing high power moves like outrage, heat wave, and Extremespeed. He is the best Pokemon ever!

Straight up gangster enough said way better then charizard and should be number one!

Best Pokemon EVER IN THE WORLD, way better than Hooh

41 Regigigas Regigigas Regigigas, known in Japan as the same name, is a Legendary Pokémon species in Nintendo and Game Freak's Pokémon franchise.

I mean come on with a name like regigigas it has to be the best. I'm sure they meant it to be regi kick-ass

Look at it's effect, half the attack and speed for the first 5 turns makes it one of the worst Pokemon ever!

Dude, the reason that regigigas has slow start is that it's so incredibly powerful that it takes it that long just to finish its warm-ups. Think of it this way: its attacks and speed aren't half-power in the beginning, they are double power after Slow Start wares off.

This high with Slow Start? Wow. - ShadowShadoge

42 Smeargle Smeargle

1. Use sketch in double battle on your own strong pokemon (such as bringing out victini)
2. Make sure your strong pokemon uses an OVERPOWERED move ( in my example ill use victini and make sure you use something like V- create)
3. Smergle sketches the OP move and learns untamed forgets sketch.
4. After battle, go to move tutor to let smergle relearn sketch.
5. Repeat steps 1-4 except use a different pokemon and move.
6. After doing steps 1-4 four times, your smergle should have 4 OVERPOWERED moves (eg. V-create, psystrike, roar of time, and sacred fire).
7. Congrats you have a smergle than knows OP moves

It is INVINCIBLE! (thanks transform/imprison) - LuciaTheLugia

Moody Baton Pass. Cheap, but powerful. - ShadowShadoge

43 Snorlax Snorlax

Sleep all Day, get up, take care of what ever woke him up, eat maybe said thing that woke him, yawn, go back to sleep. A Day in the life of Snorlax. Oh and he is great with kids...

Looks like me

Yeah, he's fat and all and has great defense. Which makes him unstoppable but he still has weaknesses. If you train harder he wil win

Why wouldn't I vote for myself

44 Alakazam Alakazam Alakazam was first shown in game freaks Pokemon Red & Green (Blue for outside of Japan) version. Alakazam is the final evolution of the Abra line. It evolves from Kadabra when traded. It is a pure psychic type. It is said to have an IQ of 5000 and is a human like Pokemon. It has high special attack more.

Lit very underrated though

Alkazam is the strongest it probaly can defeat any non legendary pokemon

I have an Alakazam that I raised from a level 7 Abra on Fire Red to a level 100 on Pokemon Black 2 without any cheats or rare candies and I have yet to lose with it. Easy top 5

The best. Nothing else to say

45 Torterra Torterra Torterra, known in Japan as Dodaitose, is a Pokémon species in Nintendo and Game Freak's Pokémon franchise.

It is the best starter. It can beat any Pokemon with earthquake. Its ground moves can defeat infernape and it's grass moves can defeat empoleon.

"It can beat any Pokémon with earthquake"

Clearly, you have no idea what a 'flying type' is - osome_oli

He's the bomb in any thing better then charizard tortera should be number 1 in top 10 frenzy plant and with leaf storm along with earthquke so he's the number 1 best Pokemon

2nd best starter, second only to charizard

I have this pokemon and it destroys everything in sight. I have only trained it over 5 days and it is around level 80 or higher. I have raised and seen it kick ass all the time. I never leave my torterra because it my best friend at the moment. If someone gets one and train hard, they too can beat anyone

46 Magcargo Magcargo

Stupid snail

It is like a molten lava, but its attack cannot be like its shape

This Pokemon is so hot you shouldn't even be able to catch it. The Pokeball should melt in mid air before it reaches him. Ash would literally be ash if he was even within range to throw a Pokeball at Magcargo. As soon as you start a fight with this guy your Pokemon would instantly faint and die from Magcargos heat. Then too the trainer would die if they haven't already. Magcargo could destroy every other Pokemon without even doing anything.

47 Sceptile Sceptile Sceptile, known in Japan as Jukain, is a Pokémon species in Nintendo and Game Freak's Pokémon franchise.


Sceptile is my favorite Pokemon and he has tremendous speed and attack, however his defense is weak

He cannot be defeated with attacks like leaf storm, x-scizors, outrage earthquake, acrobatics rock slide and brick break

I can't believe Sceptile is ranked higher than Blaziken. Both deserve equal ranks.

His speed and atk is good

50 Venusaur Venusaur Venusaur, known in Japan as Fushigibana, is a Pokémon species in Nintendo and Game Freak's Pokémon franchise.

You guys are trash at voting venusaur is better than blastois


Strongest Leaf Pokémon mode than likely

He has been my main man since fire red! He should be up higher on the list! He can learn a good array of moves that can deal immense damage and he can poison, paralyze, and put the opponent to sleep! He is a valuable tool in battle.
