Top 10 Strongest Pokemon

The Top Ten
1 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

I used to wonder who Arceus was as a child but when I got into Pokemon, I realised that Arceus was actually the Pokemon God. There are two things other than being the God Pokemon that making him the most powerful. One, he can change into any type so he can pretty much change into something stronger than his opponent and two, he has the highest stats of non-mega Pokemon.

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.

2 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.

Yeah Mewtwo is great and all, but he ain't the most powerful. How can a Mewtwo beat the creator of everything (AKA Arceus)? The one that knows everything? The one that has quite literally all the power in the world? Answer is he can't, this is just weird how some people think some very powerful characters can beat or even kill immortal, all powerful, creators of the universe, I really don't get it. People have to start using their brain more, and I don't mean that as an insult, some people have their bias towards things as well as an opinion. I'm just saying, logically Arceus is far above all other Pokemon.

Mewtwo is the most powerful. And I will tell you why. Mewtwo is Genetic, so since Arceus did not create Mewtwo, he dose not know his powers. Mewtwo can use delta switch to turn to different types WITHOUT plates or stuff. Mewtwo can copy attacks and abilitys. Mewtwo speed is 2nd which is good out of 890 pokemon. It is highly intelegent for a pokemon. It built a lab without any experience which is VERY good for a pokemon. it's stats are good and mega stats are AMAZING. If you like mega but not its regelar form than you are not a fan of that pokemon. the Design for mewtwo is good too. I love the shape and that it is not to busy. The purple makes the grey pop. the pokemon it not a good cuddle buddy, though. As in the movie, Mewtwo was not the kind of guy to mess with. The Pokemon I would think to put in FRONT of Mewtwo is none. I think Mewtwo is the best. The phony deer god is over rated. Arceus the "God" had to be SAVED by a KID! Mewtwo is a hardy pokemon, especialy when it got stabbed ...more

Mewtwo Is a good POKEMON. It is a hard opponent to beat. if I did the top ten list 1 to 10 it would be: Mewtwo, Arceus, Rayquaza, Mew, Giritina, Darkria, Dialga, Palkia, Lugia, and Kyurem. Why? II'l tell you why. Mewtwo
stats are 680, but MEGA MEWTWO XandY
stats are 780. higher than arceus (720).
Arceus is just over rated. people just vote for because it is new. They forget about better pokemon like mewtwo and even lugia. These people believe ANYTHING for Pokemon. Sometimes you have to face the facts. People think lugia should be higher?
I do like Lugia, but you have to think if they were in a battle, who would win. And not just you want to win, who WILL win. And Lugia is my favorite, but Mewtwo is more powerful.

I'm only going off of the anima and the movies because I have not played a lot of the games, but I think Mewtwo is pretty powerful with what it did in detective Pikachu. Although... Pikachu give some other people the spotlight for once!

3 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.

I think that Raquaza is the most powerful Pokémon as it has a total of 680 stats as Raquaza and 780 (+100 stats for Mega evolution,) stats for it's Mega evolution. And if you look at all of the battles Raquaza has faced, it appears that raquaza hasn't lost that many battles. Plus It is a dragon type Pokémon, which means that dragon, and fairy type Pokémon are the ones it has a weakness to, and it also has a flying type resistance which is OK. But the thing that really amazes me, is that it can evolve without a Mega Stone, and it doesn't take up it's turn!

I still vote for Rayquaza but we're not basing this off of video game statistics. He was broken in that game, we all know that, as broken as Meta Knight in Smash Bros Brawl.

With base stats of 105/180/100/180/100/115 in its mega evolved form, it has the highest total base stat number of 780. Not only are these stats extremely well rounded on the defensive side, it's an offensive powerhouse that can also hold any other item like a life orb for example. It also has the Delta Stream ability which completely negates all fly type weaknesses, meaning it's only weak to ice (2x), dragon, and fairy all while keeping the flying type resistances.

The base stats of Mega Rayquaza already make it a top tier Pokemon. The fact that it can hold any other item and also has the Delta Stream ability pushes it to the top in my opinion.

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.

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

Mew is WAY overrated. He did not defeat mewtwo. He cannot learn every move; can he learn draco meteor or sacred sword? I will admit that his movepool is pretty decent, but that's the only good thing about him! He isn't strong. His shiny sucks. And, you guys are so hyped that he can transform into any pokemon. You wanna know who else can do that? DITTO, but I don't see him up here. Also, any pokemon with mimic! There are so many better pokemon than mew. I honestly don't even think mew should make top 500 pokemon. The only reason he's at number 4 right now is because you all have your facts wrong, and obviously don't know the difference between a good pokemon and a weak pokemon. BRING ON THE HATERS!

-cute
-good heart
-powerful
AMAZING
ok I know there are people who think mew is weak but its not I respect your opinion but it is not nessesarily weak. mewtwo is equally powerful as mew but it has an evil heart. not saying that mewtwo is not powerful it is powerful and equal to mew. can people stop hating? (y am I repeating my point lol)

Mew is the "origin" of Pokemon It's Pokemon entries state that it possesses the DNA of all Pokemon. It can learn any move which would allow it to bypass resistances, making Arceus's Multi-type virtually useless since mew can change its attack types as Arceus changes its own type. Can transform into any Pokemon including other legendaries, which would allow it to change its resistances and weaknesses whenever needed as well as acquire stats and abilities that would better benefit it in any given situation. In the first Pokemon movie it is seen fighting head to head with Mewtwo without losing any ground, and in this instance he was fighting only using Psychic attacks, and without the need for transformation. Not to mention Mewtwo was created from Mew's DNA.

Statwise, it's impressive. Not jaw-dropping, but impressive. It's incredibly immense move pool also really helps it be a viable team member. Mew was also the "original legend". All other legendaries could be accessed in game. We all thought Mewtwo was the ultimate, final catch. We were wrong. Only those who cheated or went to events got this extra special Pokemon. But we aren't voting for Mew based on just the game (s). We're voting based on the movie (s) as well. When Mewtwo started trashing all the trainer's Pokemon in the first movie, he seemed invincible. And we truly thought it to be so. Until this adorable little pink Pokemon stole our hearts when it deflected Mewtwo's shadow ball. It also helped save the world again along with Lucario (another favorite of mine). It's cuddly. It's playful. It's powerful. It's mew. I love Mew, and it is the best. And no one can convince me otherwise. Glad to see it's so high up the list

5 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.

I EASILY CANNOT ARGUE WITH THE TOP 3 and guys who hates mew And think he is WAY TOO OVERRATED I just wanna say that in my eyes Mew is actually a Little UNDERRATED if you ask me so the top 4 is easily in order and everyone there is right where they should be no way Giritina is better then any of them (maybe mew) but HE DEFINITELY earned his spot in the top 5 I MEAN A OVERPOWERED (OP) TYPING I mean Ghost and Dragon is EASILy the strongest typing duo in all of Pokémon and Giritina had very good moves and pretty good stats definitely earned this spot as #5 NO ARGUING!

Giratina was a total BEAST. It knows Destiny Bond! So when he/she/it (I'll call it he by the way) is defeated, the opponent is dead too! Giratina could literally beat anyone. Shadow Force is like a 10x stronger move than Phantom Force, and it can break through all protections! It should be number two or one because, um, Arceus is bit way too strong? Ok, wait. Did you guys realize something terribly good about Giratina. Pikachu, the "BIG BOSS POKEMON" in the anime used Thunderbolt on Giratina and nothing happens. In Arceus and the jewel of life Arceus was screaming in pain and yelling. So Giratina could literally beat Arceus too by simply stealing one of Arceus's plate by Shadow Forcing behind Arceus and take one plate while Arceus isn't paying attention. Oh, so Giratina CAN beat Arceus!

A lot of you guys sound ike you're derping, especially the guy who wrote about Kyurem and the people who voted for Charizard. Personally, I believe Arecus is the strongest Pokemon, and that Giratina, Dialga, and Palkia, also known as his FIRST creations and the beings of time, space, and antimatter themselves, should be tied for second, and then maybe Mewtwo. Personally, I've always found Giratina to be slightly stronger than his brethren due to his ability to change forms, but that's my opinion. Anyway, thanks for support and you guys who voted for f#king MEW and CHARIZARD need to shut up and stop smoking on your nostalgia.

It's the god of antimatter and had to be banished to a different dimension because it would destroy any other. What more could you want?

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

Just a few things
Most resistances of any legendary
Second least weaknesses of any legendary (after Palkia, but Palkia has much less resistances)
Immune to poison (better than Giratina's 2-3 immunities since Giratina has less resistances and more weaknesses)
Roar of time wipes the floor with any Pokemon. With the Adamant Orb Roar of Time is the most powerful Pokemon move ever.
Resistant to dragon moves (most powerful dragon type)
Can beat any legendary (except Arceus and maybe Mewtwo) even Black/White Kyurem despite having 20 stats less.
Learns several different types of moves.

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 is one of the best pokemon in the world, as it's roar of time is super effective against anything dragon and its 150 move stat is just overpowered.

Ok ok yeah yeah everyone thinks the giratina destroyed dialga in giratina the sky warrior but in truth dialga was not even trying to fight a pn admant orb + roar of time WILL one shot giratina this Pokemon is my favourite Pokemon becouse diamond was my first ever Pokemon game and with the new game and the new added typing fairy dialga could one shot it with flash cannon and not even be fazed with a massive sp Atk stat as it is its main stat with the admant orb and the most powerful dragon type move except for Draco meteor will kill EVERYTHING it's main attacks would be roar of time flash cannon aura sphere and in my opinion fire blast

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

Are we basing strength off of mythology or strength in the competitive Pokemon game?

If in mythology, it's likened to God by being able to flap its wings and cause a storm similar to that of the Great Flood that cleansed the earth, aka don't piss him off or he'll wipe out the human race.*

Competitively, he's a tank as well. 106/130/154 Defenses with Multiscale? Any Pokemon slower than him will have a hard time getting past his toxic stalling ability. (with an admitted exception in Kyurem-White and Black, whose ability negate Multiscale yech) Oh, and Whirlwind will stop many sweepers in their tracks, including the deadly Power Herb+Geomancy Xerneas. Although his attack and special attack are abysmal (only 90 Special Attack LOL), he doesn't need it to stall you to death.

*not that he will. He knows of his own immense power, and deliberately seals himself away because of that. What a nice guy.

For me this is THE Pokemon! Its why generation 2 for me is still the best, before the later games became oversaturated with too many legendaries (with too many spikes) Lugia was the BOMB! Still the classiest looking Pokemon around. The way they built it up in in "the power of one" as well, they can try and make increasingly ridiculous looking legendary Pokemon and pass them off as the most powerful (Giratina and Groudon I'm looking at you) but game freak knew they hit their peak with Lugia

Lugia is OP... That's all I have to say. But I will say more! In the Anime Movie with Hoopa Lugia was holding out against a Demon Legendary and Lugia could have fought longer if Demon Hoopa didn't send him Away. Also in the Pokemon Movie 2000 Lugia was said to be the King of the Legendary Birds. He also has the Best Entrance ever! Bursting out of a Whirlpool! I don't See Kyogre doing that! Also he has his own Theme Song! Does Darkrai or Mewtwo have a Theme Song? I don't Think So! (Not entirely Sure on that...)

Lugia is a immense, draconian Pokemon with two giant wings which has a lot of power.
Lugia has the ability to pressure, which causes the opposing Pokemon to double its pp usage in battles. It is known as the guardian of seas, Lugia is tremendously intelligent and is very gentle with the life around it, despite his colossal size.
Due to the fact it blow away houses in one single flap of its wings it lies at the bottom of the sea. It is the guardian so it can talk like human beings it's a really good advantage

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

You know why I love Darkrai?
Not because he's awesome-which he is-but because of his role in the 10th movie.

I was injured, alone and unloved, when a young girl, Alicia was falling from a cliff. Darkrai saved it.
Then he befriended Alicia's descendants. Its one real friend, however, was about to die.
Palkia and Dialga battle, surrounded the whole city in a mystic white veil, where if anyone runs into it, they return to the city.
As the battle continues, Darkrai is suspected, and receives gigantic hate from everyone except Ash, his companions, and his one friend.
The city starts to melt away as the battle commences.
He is determined to save his one friend ever, but when he gets hit by Roar of Time and special rend, he sacrifices himself for the city.
This proves that any being can have a soul, and it makes me want to cry that a being so hated, would save everyone.

Please. Lets have darkrai from number 10 to number 1.

Very overrated by the people who only watch the anime, but in games it just gets vaporized by many things, including mewtwo who is weak to it.

My darkrai absolutely kicks butt. I use dark void and dream eater if they wake up and do some damage restart the cycle and because of dream eater I'm at full health. His ability which slowly drains there health is great incase you can't attack. It's a great Pokemon it's only flaw are Pokemon with insomnia, electric terrain or being one shot which I highly doubt unless the opponent is fighting of fairy

darkrai has better speed and special attack than arceus and is more annoying to deal with. darkrai helps me on my play through extremely well.its favorite thing to do is 1 shot arceus with dark pulse and annoys my friends with dark void dream eater and nightmare. its ability bad dreams just makes this Pokemon even better(:

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

Palkia is the srongest of the creation trio as it can conrol space and in the movie defeated dialga and was going to attack girantina but arceus intercepted it with judgement. Palkia in the Pokemon games can be very hard to defeat and the player can only defeat the elite four and champion cynthia if he has palkia or one of the other creation trio members. Palkia also has the power to create new universes with only a cry and can defeat every legendary Pokemon besides arceus

I call Palkia "King Of The Sea" alongside Carracosta and Kyogre. Seriously, I thought it's psychic type! Look at it's pink body and purple stripes! Basically it's the coolest thing ever. (It's one of the creation trio! Arceus worked with the creation trio as well as the lake guardians to create the Pokémon world, so that means if Palkia is not here the world would have no space! Dialga brings time, Uxie brings knowledge, Azelf or Mesprit brings emotion and willpower. So basically that means Palkia is also the creator or the Pokémon world. Just too awesome, dudes) Arceus is truly strong, but Palkia is maybe as strong as Arceus(I think).

Palkia is essentially the Pokémon-equivalent of the Hachibi, which is a semi-water-based bijū, which Palkia's Water-type clearly shows. Palkia/the Hachibi is almost as strong as Giratina/the Kyūbi, but just isn't quite on par with it.

Palkia can distort space and within a distorted space time can't even flow nor there is any stability with any Pokemon, it even contained Arceus in its distorted space and prevented his escape for a while... so, accordingly should be in one of top 5, not on basis of game mechanics but on Pokemon world reality...

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

My first ever shiny was Hyrum and a only two encounters too! I had no interest in shiny hunting and forgot to save after catching it. The next time I came back it was shiny and I was so happy

Let's look at a REAL powerhouse:

A base 170 special attack and access to the most powerful dragon type move (that's practical) in draco meteor. Combined with choice specs this is one of the most powerful attacks in the game. The top 10 can't brag abou that. You also have access to ice beam and fusion flare to give even more options to shread your precious Arceus. (being god doesn't mean anything. Competitive battling wouldn't exist if you're right about his power). Oh, and a good base 120 attack. Kyurem-B can't brag an ice type move on it's main stat, attack. For real, do research before you vote on Pokemon that don't deserve it. (looking at you, charizard)

Kyurem when fused with Reshiram or Zekrom becomes the second strongest pokemon in the basic attack and special attack categories (only being beat by a attack form deoxys) and its defense and special defense also gain a immense boost as well and its hp is one of the highest, plus with its extremely powerful and diverse movepool it has almost no weaknesses, as it can kill many tanks or pokemon that its not super effective against without needing any stat boosts, it can survive around 65% of all the attacks you can throw at it without needing any stat set ups or special abilities, and its ability teravolt and Turboblaze allow it to take out those pokemon that would survive any attack like shedninja or any pokemon with sturdy which right there makes Kyurem a good strategy destroyer as he destroys all of those invincible teams like the one were you use burn up on arcanine and then put wonder guard on him making him immune to all attacks. Kyurem has to be the best pokemon on its own, ...more

Look here, the Kyurem is original piece of the legendary Pokemon that has created the Unova region, so this Pokemon actually has a lots of potential...

If any of you played Pokemon black and white 2, it actually have more stuff about this, but the Kyurem, Reshiram, Zekrom were one Pokemon, and Kyurem is basically the middle piece

If you fuse those three Pokemon, dude, that would be like, stronger than all the arceus put together!

The Newcomers

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

Deoxys (in my opinion) is the strongest Pokemon after Arceus, as it's one of the fastest (I think is the fastest) Pokemon in speed form and it's attack and special attack are super high in attack form. Sure it has bad defense in the game, but in the movie and manga it can regenerate and create clones of itself. In the manga, Deoxys was crushing Mewtwo, but Mewtwo got lucky. (Read if u don't believe me) Have I mentioned that Deoxys came from outer space! Deoxys should definitely be in the top 5 of strongest Pokemon. And in the games, just give Deoxys a focus sash in attack form and it will pretty much be able to down any Pokemon for sure. Deoxys was also trashing Rayquaza, but Rayquaza got lucky.

It can have the highest stat in almost every category, and each form allows it to alter said stats to it's advantage. In the Pokemon universe, I would say that Deoxys is most likely the strongest ever discovered. While Mewtwo was created from Mew by man, and Mew created Pokemon on Earth so to speak, Deoxys evolved from an extraterrestrial organism and found it's way to Earth. Arceus even got sealed up in some liquid metal goop in the movie and couldn't do anything. If anything, the only Pokemon that could stand up to Deoxys in matters of stat balance would be Mewtwo and Mew in the Pokemon universe. All other Pokemon would be wise to fear a misunderstood Deoxys, since that was the case in Destiny Deoxys.. and looked what happened to Rayquaza there. No questions asked, Deoxys is the most powerful at it's maximum potential. I'd assume that would be how to properly rate these. When they are at their best.

Deoxys in attack forme possesses the highest Attack and Special Attack the Pokemon Universe. Deoxys in defense form posesses the highest Defense and Special Defense in the Pokemon Universe. Deoxys in Speed Forme possesses the highest Speed in the Pokemon Universe. Even in Normal Forme it has blistering speed coupled with insane attack and Special Attack.
It has a huge movepool with access to the devastating Psycho Boost that destroys almost every Pokemon, and hit with unparalleled power with other insane moves with impeccable type coverage such as Ice Beam, Thunder, Thunderbolt, Dark Pulse, Shadow Ball, Superpower and Extremespeed. Has been shown to have incredible regenerative abilities, reflected in its ability to instantly recover off damage.

Ok, I am starting to think that this list is based on the anime. If it was the actual games, Deoxys would not have stood a chance. Deoxys has pitiful defense, and it would not be able to change forms unless it comes into contact with a meteorite. It would not be able to change forms at will. Plus, one extreme speed from Rayquaza on a Deoxys attack form would faint it. Overall, Deoxys stands no chance.

12 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 ...read more.

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.

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

Splash is basically the best pokemon move ever, not to mention Magikarp's amazing strength and will power. Legend says it can jump over TWO buildings with a single splash, unlike Superman who can only jump over one. I also heard that it can melt steel beams more effectively than George Bush so I mean there couldn't possibly be a pokemon able to contend with Magikarp. Overall, Magikarp is the true god of pokemon, it has everything you've ever dreamed of and he always destroys the competition. Arceus is it's slave and Mewtwo polishes it's shoes/ fins. Beast.

Magikarp has actually accidentally defeated all the Pokemon in the world, when the first magikarp hatched, all Pokemon started shaking in fear and dying at the sheer power of a baby magikarp. It enslaved the whole human population with poke-balls, Lord Magikarp then proceeded to enslave every Pokemon, Arceus was begging Lord Magikarp for him to stop but Magikarp laughed, with his laughter, he destroyed the worlds yet when he stopped laughing, his then discovered his omniscience and omnipotence so he decided to re create the world to then erase everyone's memory, he released everyone and became a true god behind the scenes when he was pulling the strings, so then life went on and Lord Magikarp decided stuff was getting boring so he created a new dimension with humans that believed the Pokémon world was just a game, he then realised hat the world was lacking knowledge about him, he then sent me down to this blessed page where I will convert you all to the religion Magikarpainity, join ...more

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

OH MY GOSH. Those of you who didn't vote for this guy CLEARLY haven't faced its Primal form. Primal Groudon is a TOTAL BEAST. It gains the Fire type, which seems okay, as it makes it even weaker to Water-type moves, but then you see its ability: Desolate Land. It turns the sunlight extremely harsh, so not only does it boost the power of Fire-type moves, but it completely nullifies the effect of all Water-type moves. Simply put, this thing is COMPLETELY UNSTOPPABLE. People say Mega Rayquaza is OP, but I can deal with that one. What I can't deal with is THIS big red monster.

Groudoun has 3 weaknesses: water, ice, grass. But now he has a red orb, which can evaporate water so water is no longer a problem. He turns to fire type when he uses the orb so bye bye ice and grass. But sadly he gains a new weakness which is ground. So he loses 3 weaknesses but in return for gaining 1 weakness. Do the math people 3-1=2 the orb gets rid of 2 weaknesses for him. If he doesn't have the orb, then he screwed

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.

Primal Groudon is the most effective Pokemon I've ever played with and has only one weakness, ground. If he's primal, water moves evaporate which makes them essentially useless, and grass and ice have no chance so that only leaves ground. The only Pokemon he is arguably better is Primal Kyogre. But even then, he is still the best.

14 Mega Rayquaza

Since Rayquaza is strong when it a regal Rayquaza when it is mega evolved it is probably strong. Even in some Japanese movies he's (or she) is summoned and is pretty strong.

You should barely search before you guys put mega rayquaza in the 12 position The spot for strongest pokemon is tied between Mewtwo Mega (X & Y) and Rayquaza Mega with a astounding 780 stat points whereas Arceus has 720 points... So, I should say that Mega Rayquaza is the strongest pokemon in terms of battle power with Mega Mewtwo as close second.

I still don’t understand why mega rayquaza is lower than its base form. It doesn’t need a mega stone to mega evoke which means it can use any item to its advantage. It can use items like a choice band, leftovers and even a life orb. This is why it has its own freakin tier

This Pokemon was so strong it had its own tier and was banned from many events. It also has one of the highest base stat totals in the game.

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

Zekrom makes an amazing mixed sweeper because of how great the stats are mixed. He can take out the occasional Ho-oh that a trainer sends out, and with one simple Dragon Dance it is an extremely fast and powerful sweeper that can wipe out almost everything it sees. I've even seen it sweep a dragon-type Arceus in one hit without any stat boosts. These things are monsters.

Zekrom destroys Reshiram even though Reshiram has better typing fire/dragon. but Reshiram in my opinion was disappointing first of all Zekrom has Way better design than Reshiram Blue electricity now that is cool besides Reshiram has that normal fire just like any other fire type pokemon but most electric pokemon has yellow electricity. Zekrom should at least be on no 10 spot.

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

16 Mega Mewtwo Y

How is this pokemon ranked 16th? This pokemon is the mega evolved version of a pokemon that can destroy Arceus, Mewtwo. This pokemon is stronger than Mega Mewtwo X! This is the best pokemon of ALL TIME. Mega Mewtwo Y should be ranked 1st, Mega Mewtwo X should be ranked 2nd and Mewtwo should be ranked 3rd. Arceus is weaker than Magikarp (my opinion) and I have no idea why Arceus is ranked 1st. People who think Arceus is the best, they don't know what pokemon is. Mega Mewtwo is fully hectic. It's the greates and the best-est pokemon ever. BEAT THAT.

Mega Mewtwo Y is the best pokemon ever. Nothing can beat it. If any pokemon can beat Mega Mewtwo Y, it would happen in 100,000 years. If anyone thinks that this pokemon deserves to be ranked 16th, they don't what pokemon is. I think this should be ranked number 1. This is the mega evolved version of a pokemon that can destroy Arceus in a few hits, Mewtwo. Mega Mewtwo is like.. 1,000 times better than Mewtwo so it can beat Arceus in like.. 1 hit. Nothing can beat this! Besides the pokemon I made.

It has absurd statistics, and does everything Mewtwo does but 1,000 times better. Mega Mewtwo Y is superior to basically all Pokemon due to it's ridiculous Special attack along with it's absurd speed stat. I guess it would fall under Mewtwo's category, but if you're counting it as a separate Pokemon, Mega Mewtwo Y is number 1.

I really like this pokemon because it has such good stats and I don’t care that it’a defense is low because it has really good stats in every other category including special defense, also those of you who say mega mewtwo Y is a girl it actually has no gender and it is known as genderless

17 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 ...read more.

Come on! Xerneas is definitely the WEAKEST POKEMON IN THE UNIVERSE. My least favorite Pokémon is Xerneas and my favorite is Yveltal. Anime just think of it like, "Oh, it represents destruction, death, and villains. It is dark type, so it's a bad guy! " How dare they think that! Anybody that says that would get slain by Yveltal's oblivion wing! Yveltal is way stronger than idiotic Xerneas. Reasons: 1) Yveltal even looks cooler 2) Bigger and stronger 3) Two types vs one type 4) Better moves like Double Team. Imagine sixteen Yveltals verses one Xerneas 5) Knows Disable. Disable is an attack that stops the opponent from attacking for so many turns without having a secondary effect. 6) (I like this one the most) Xerneas gives life, Yveltal gives death. So when they're battling, Xerneas can only give Yveltal more and more life and Yveltal can suck all life outta Xerneas

Do you people even play Pokemon? It clearly says STRONGEST, not coolest. Stuff like Florges and Goodra are WAY stronger than Charizard (Florges has base stat totals of 552, while Charizard has 534). So yes, flowers and giant pseudo-legendary goo dinasaurs are stronger than fire-breathing dragons. And a flying Y is 3 times better than an ugly fire breathing dragon who faints when anything uses a rock move.

Yveltal is one of the best Pokemon. I was using it for the first time and I was like R you CEREAL when I used oblivion wing. I beat the entire elite 4 and the champion using it only. It has 408 HP when level 100 so I think it should at least be in the top 5. WHY IS IT NUMBER 268!?!

Probably a good thing it sleeps for five thousand years, the thing does not die! It reaches the end, saps the life force out of all the living creatures for at least a mile and goes to sleep! Then its repeat and start over!

18 Dragonite Dragonite, known in Japan as Kairyu, is a Pokémon species in Nintendo and Game Freak's Pokémon franchise.

Dragonite is amazing it sould be ranked no. 1 on this list. It is super adaptable and can learn heaps of moves and is one of the most strongest non legendary Pokemon. In fact it is what Pokemon experts call a pseudo legend. This is because at level one hundred his stats rise over one hundred. As of x and y there have only been a few Pokemon to do this. This is a great, powerful and aesthetically cool Pokemon to have.

How can 94 people like the comment about dragonite being a fire, electric, and flying dragon pokemon. It's dragon/flying! Also, 4x weakness to ice. Hello ice beam, a very common move on water types, a very common type in ou. You could take mulitscale that halfs attack at max hp, buuut, stealth rocks are so common that it pretty much renders it useless without roost, which takes up a moveslot. Oh, and one mors thing, putting thunder fire blast, and whatever flying move you think works for dragonite, well doesn't. He's a psyical attacker, and obviously fire blast and thunder ( I'm guessing hurricane? ) are special attacking moves, and not stab either, make a really redundant moveset. Dragon dance, fire punch, dragon claw, and whatever psyical move you want still won't help against the everlasting m-gard and sylveons, that can wall you if defensively invested. Now... Why don't we talk about carracosta?

Seriously. You guys, dragonite had the highest stats besides legendaries and megas for a long time. Slaking may have more stats, but slaking has truant which is the most useless ability ever. He is a dragon type, and can learn tons of extremely powerful moves, has insanely high stats. He is also the signature pokemon of the coolest trainer, lance.

Want a Pokemon with a wide movepool with different types and moves, yet still a lot of moves for STAB? Want a Pokemon that has incredibly good stats and great abilities? Want a Pokemon that isn't used by other people? Use Dragonite. The only bad thing about it is that it might take a lot of time to train, but honestly, it is definitely worth it.

19 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 ...read more.

Xerneas is pretty OP with its' ability Fairy Aura, which boosts Fairy type moves, like the popular and powerful Moonblast, and if you give it a Power Herb, and use Geomancy, it'll boost its' Speed, Special Attack and Special Defense. It will, no joke, DECIMATE opponents. It'll also take not as much damage due to its' enhanced Special Defense, which I think is really neat.

I really like this Pokemon, and it's pretty good competitively, so it's your man (well, it's genderless, but whatever ) in a pinch.

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

Do you people even play Pokemon? It clearly says STRONGEST, not coolest. Stuff like Florges and Goodra are WAY stronger than Charizard (Florges has base stat totals of 552, while Charizard has 534). So yes, flowers and giant pseudo-legendary goo dinasaurs are stronger than fire-breathing dragons. And a rainbow deer is over 3 times better than an ugly fire breathing dragon who faints when anything uses a rock move.

Let's get this straight. Max speed, max sp.A... Plus geomancy&power herb... Equals a 1-3 hit kill on anything. LITERALLY ANYTHING. Even a poison or steel type will die in 2-3 turns max. Plus, he is a badass deer who wipes the flour with like over half of the other legendaries. The only one he might not beat is steel arceus. Poison? Please poison types don't have enough attack

20 Tyranitar Tyranitar, known in Japan as Bangiras, is a Pokémon species in Nintendo and Game Freak's Pokémon franchise.

Seriously! Only 20. Tyranitar is such a beast. he could destroy anything and everything. shut up ditto, I know you can turn into anything but it is anything that tyranitar could crush by lifting only a finger. when he rampages, he knocks down entire mountains and buries rivers, maps also have to be redrawn after that. he is 6 foot 7 inches and he can completely change the landscape. that is the definition of a strong Pokemon right there (kyogre is almost as strong, but I have this unwritten rule about using legendary Pokemon for battling in the games). Tyranitar is and always will be my favorite Pokemon. it will never change mostly because I don't really like gen. 5 or 6 too much

Tyranitar is my favorite dark type Pokemon. When it was introduced in gen. 2 it destroyed every single psychic Pokemon I went against

Tyranitar is the biggest pimp ever... If you put a wall of gash in front of it, it simply slays each one, one at a time, saw it once have a fight with the big man... Aser, and safe to say Aser won, but tyranitar is still beast.

Looks awesome and by the way its very strong. I like him too cause he is big and mewtu is NO chance against him! And he is the truest Pokemon that ever lived!

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

Reshiram NEEDS to be at least no.11 or no.10 on this list, just because Zekrom looks cooler doesn't mean he's any stronger. I believe that Reshiram looks cooler and is just as strong. Based on stats, they both have a stat total of 680. Both are average on speed and good with everything else, meaning they're pretty much the exact same.

Reshiram is meant to be just as strong as Zekrom but when it comes down to little details it is a bit stronger because Reshiram uses special attacks when Zekrom uses physical attacks and there are some moves that cause damage to the users of physical attacks. For example; Poison spikes.

Reshiram is actually better than Zekrom if you think about it. No offense to you Zekrom fans cause he is pretty cool! 😄 Although Reshiram is quite a bit faster and has amazing Special Attack stats so if it were to use Draco Meteor, than Zekrom would be finished. Before you say, "what if it had a focus sash? " What if Reshiram had one as well? See what I'm getting at... Overall Reshiram can beat Zekrom. (And Kyerum.) A big sorry to you Zekrom users, but have fun facing my level 100 shiny Reshiram in battle!

Did anyone read my last comment about Reshiram? I said that in the pokedex that reshiram has the power to inflame the world with fire! All it says about Zekrom is that its tail is just a generator. How cool is Zekrom now? Reshiram should be higher ranked than a tail generator Pokemon. Please, please, please vote for Reshiram! -Spino_Fan#1

22 Ho-Oh Ho-Oh, known in Japan as Houou, is a Legendary Pokémon species in Nintendo and Game Freak's Pokémon franchise.

He has monster attack, which is good in it's case. It's signature move has about 150 base power with STAB, and a 50% burn chance, and even get's access to Sky Attack, a 140 base power move with flying STAB. It actually has decent defense! Sadly, it, like many other fellow fire- flying types, suffers a huge impact from Stealth Rock and rock attacks. Sorry Charizard, Moltres, Talonflame, and Ho- Oh! But the weird part is, in my Heartgold game, I brought in my Ho- Oh in on an incoming Machamp, not thinking of coverage for flying types. I used Fly, not knowing about No Guard, and it used Rock Slide on me. I thought I screwed up, but then, IT SURVIVED THE HIT! Then, I beat the league. THANKS HO- OH!

Ho-Oh is essentially the Pokémon-equivalent of the Nibi, both of whom are fiery spirits. Ho-Oh is also stronger than Lugia, just like how the Nibi is stronger than the Ichibi, but neither are as strong as the rest of their respective groups.

Ho-Oh and Lugia are 2 equally powerful pokemon, with unimaginable power. Ho-Oh and Lugia can face an army of Dittos, Mews, Mewtwos, Arceus, and win. The Tower Duo is arguably the most powerful group of pokemon. Ho-Oh's fire power and Lugia's Psychic abilities make for a powerful, and pretty much indomitable, combo.

Ho-Oh is the most epic Pokemon I have ever seen in my life. It is a massive phoenix and its signature move (sacred fire) sounds incredible! I know this is Pokemon but, have you seen Ho-Oh in Minecraft Pixelmon? He looks absolutely EPIC! He is an attack type of Pokemon. Lugia is just a plain ol' defense Pokemon. Please vote for Ho-Oh!

23 Scizor Scizor, known in Japan as Hassam, is a Pokémon species in Nintendo and Game Freak's Pokémon franchise.

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

I feel this Pokemon DESERVES a higher rating.

He/she is the only one that makes razor wind worth while

Scizor is the best! Everybody says Charizard is the best, but scizor could defeat Charizard any day!

Steel= Favorite type to use. Bug= 2nd favorite type. Add that together and you get Foretre- I mean Scizor!

24 Primal Kyogre

Honestly, if Groudon and Kyogre actually were to fight (not in the games); nobody would win. I mean, Kyogre has the advantage to obliterate Groudon but then again the abilities between the two say likewise. With both Primodial Sea and Desolate Land competing with each other, the attacks wouldn't be as efficient as the abilities make it. Each weakening Water and Fire moves. So as a result the battle would last forever. Typically this is why Rayquaza is the one to tame them both before they eventually destroy the world,leading to the battle being unfinished.

It's a boat! It's a fish! It's Primal kyogre! This insanely powerful pokemon has water spout, with base stat of 770, it's pretty much unstoppable.

Can make him way slower than Primal Groudon, cancelling out Desolate Land. Plus, even if Desolate Land beats out Primordial Sea, he can still 2 shot Primal Groupon with Earthquake.

Primal kyogre is stronger than primal groudon and heres why.
1 we all know primal groudon turns into a fire and ground type and kyogre stays a water type which gives it a 4 times power advantage.
2 primal kyogres ability that makes it rain for the entire battle and this rain can not be stopped not even by primal groudon.
3 since primal groudon is a fire and ground type you would expect it to have fire and ground moves which is not very effective against a water type like primal kyogre

25 Primal Groudon

In my opinion Primal Groudon is very close to Mega Rayquaza. Clearly lots of people voted on preference or before ORAS came out. Mega Rayquaza is #1, Primal Groudon is #2, then Mewtwo Y, then everyone else. If you haven't played with this beast, you're missing out big time. Desolate Land is an absolutely OP ability, this dude is a beast.

Should be top ten easily. It can wreck ever thing. If its you first Pokemon it can take out any Pokemon. It can even learn dragon pulse. For a fire ground type it has decent speed and it can be used as a tank or an attacker. Depending on the moves you put on it.

Wow. This low? This is bulky, and can dish out some amazing damage with Precipice Blades. It's ability boosts fire type attacks, and makes it immune to it's 4x weakness, water. This thing is OP.

Because of its ability Desolate land, it solves the 4x weak to water issue and it boosts solar beam so I think Primal Groudon can DESTROY Primal Kyogre
