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

Technically it didn't create all of them.. So that doesn't apply to the original 151 because mew created them... So.. Mewtwo could still be better... Just pointing that out

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.

Arkeas is suck rattatas cockle. Arceas is really bad, He is one of th e worstest pokeman in the uniferse! 1! Arkeus is the 2 worstest! - JoeysRattata

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

Mew two is stronger than Arceus as well as Mew and is the Strongest Pokemon in the world

Mewtwo is the strongest while arceus did create the pokemon the anime even confirmed that Mewtwo was the strongest so Mewtwo should be at number 1 - MegadethFan07

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

This is not #1. IT LITERALLY HAS A MEGA THAT HAS HIGHER STATS THAN ARCEUS. YOU FOOLS PUT IT AT #3! - habibxd44

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.

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

This pokemon is the one that defeated mewtwo

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

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! - JoeysRattata

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.

GIRATINA SHOULD AT LEAST BE PLACED SOMEWHERE BETWEEN NO.3 TO NO.6 BECAUSE IT'S ALMOST ABLE BEAT ANY KIND OF POKEMON ESPECIALLY IN ITS ORIGINAL FORM IT WOULD BE ABLE TO DEFEAT A WHOLE POKEMON LEAGUE ON ITS OWN BY TRAINING IT THE RIGHT WAY

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

He was literatly banished to an inescapable hell Because he was so powerful. I rest my case

6 Dialga Dialga

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?

He is pretty cool

7 Kyurem Kyurem

KYUREM IS AN INCREDIBLE DRAGON WITH ITS ICE CHARACTER AND BE ABLE TO FUSE WITH EITHER RESHIRAM OR ZEKROM IT WOULD BE ABLE TO RIVAL ARCEUS STRENGTH THAT ALMOST MADE ME WONDER IF ARCEUS AND KYUREM (THE ORIGINAL DRAGON) WOULD BE SIBLINGS THAT THERE WERE LIKE 2 POKEMON OR UP TO 5 BEFORE NOTHING EXISTED WAY BACK THEN NOTHINGS IMPOSSIBLE ITS FUNNY IF KYUREM HAD A BATTLE WITH ARCEUS AND LOST WHEN FELT LIKE IT LOST ITS PRIDE ANOTHER THING WHEN I TRAINED KYUREM IN ITS NORMAL FORM IT WAS DOING GOOD AFTER VERY HARD TRAINING ALMOST LIKE GIRATINA I SHARPENED THE SKILLS I'm LITTLE OF A PERFECTIONIST TRYING MAKE EVERYTHING LOOK GOOD I RAISED MY a lot AFTER A WHILE I TOOK MY KYUREM AND THE OTHERS TO CHALLENGE THE BLACK TOWER FOR ME I WAS EXCITED TO FACE IT SO I DID I WAS SAVING KYUREM FOR THE LAST BOSS TRAINER IT DID A BIT BATTLING IN THE LOWER AS LIKE BACKUP THE OTHERS WERE LIKE WIMPS COMPARED TO KYUREM HE HAD GOOD ENDURANCE AND THE SAME WITH EMBOAR AS FOR EMBOAR I ONCE DEFEATED IRIS THE CHAMPION ...more

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. "

8 Lugia Lugia

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

2nd place it's so tanky I tried Dialga giratina palkia Mewtwo mega latias and music 1 strong more but it was no win he has look like music 30000 health too un fair

9 Darkrai Darkrai Darkrai is a legendary Pokemon developed by Game Freak. The only way to get this Pokemon was through two events, only one in the United States.

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

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!

The Evil Super Dark Pokemon Is ALSO AWESOME!

Stat totals aren’t everything. Darkrai can 1v1 just about any pokemon, and Dark Void is great in doubles too.

10 Palkia Palkia

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 has a good move and takes lot of damage and can ome sot the elite 4

The Newcomers

? Silvally Silvally

This Pokemon has a stat of 570, Mewtwo have a stat of 780 therefore it isn't the strongest. - 50

Silvally's gives you a warning look when he looks at you and is powerful

It looks like a dog

This pokemon has the ability to change into any type that's cool! The pokemon is srong with its ax it takes lots of loyalty to train it

? Golisopod Golisopod

It's a very strong pokemon and it got me past a ton of problems in the games

Why isn't slaking on this list it's stat is 670

Golisopod is a very strong Pokèmon

awesome :3

The Contenders

11 Zekrom Zekrom

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.

Really? That's all I have to say.

12 Charizard Charizard Charizard, known in Japan as Lizardon, is a Pokémon species in Nintendo and Game Freak's Pokémon franchise.

It's a simple pokemon but its strong. Its true that charizard isn't a rare pokemon. But its cool to know that this pokemon is great even its just a normal pokemon. Its power is really great with quite speed

Charizard should be Higher! It can mega evolve into two different mega evolutions! Only Mewtwo can also mega evolve into two different mega evolutions!

Fire and Flying he is also a Big Bad Dragon type with a Fighting Spirit Like the other Fire Starters

Are you mad charizard is the best it should be number 1 fire pokemon the best

Charizard isn't better than the Pokemon who created all Pokemon, including Charizard... - anythingispossible

Seriously, this should be wayy lower. - 50

15 Reshiram Reshiram

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

The coolest of them all

16 Mega Mewtwo Y

It has the most highest base stat of all Pokemon

It was Pokemon killer of the world.

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.

Because is really fast and one of the strongest.

17 Groudon Groudon

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.

Groudon kicks mega butt he rocks he's number #1 better then all the other pokemon ahead of him.

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.

18 Mega Mewtwo X

Not to be a party pooper but how is Mewtwo ahead of its mega evolution :/

Look it up it has the best stats at 780 where arceus is at 720

This is oblivious look it up highest stats as if you look at the history Mewtwo is strongest in region 1-3 then race us for 4 and 5 then Mewtwo x for 6 also dark used to kill Mewtwo easy well with fighting type Mewtwo can counter that I did a battle 3 on 3 I only used Mewtwo and I crushed them hands down the best

Mega Mewtwo x is actually stronger than y because it's a physic-fighting type - MegadethFan07

19 Dragonite Dragonite Dragonite is a character from the Pokémon franchise by Nintendo. It is a dragon and flying type Pokémon created in the first generation of Pokémon. It is a Pseudo Legendary Pokémon.

Do I have to explain;
Water, electric, fire and a flying dragon pokémon.

You don't have to catch them all, just Dragonite. - Bergur

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

Come on this Pokémon always kicks your ass till you can't fight no more. Face people aren't voting for it because they are just jealous of its incredible move coverage of almost every type.

Thunderbolt= fainted water and flying types
Flamethrower= fainted ice, grass, bug and steel types
Ice beam='fainted ground, grass flying and other dragon types

You just have to face it If it was in a ring with any legendary, especially Arceus, they would beg for mercy in the first minute.

DRAGONITE DRAGONITE DRAGONITE DRAGONITE!

Bearing in mind that Dragonite is physical based, so none of those attacks would do that much damage. - osome_oli

so cuet - Spino

20 Mega Rayquaza

This is the true definition of strong. 780 base stats, flying weaknesses neutralized, can hold an item in mega form with 180 attack stat, has close combat flying stab move, can have dragon dance set, and is one of the best offensive presences with mega Salamence.

First off, mega rayquaza was banned from the uber tier that was specifically made for overpowered Pokemon. Also delta stream gets rid of its flying type weakness and dragon ascend can one hit ko almost anything. Lastly it doesn't need a mega stone to mega evolve.

I don't really invest in competitive Pokemon, much less play it. But even from a cursory glance...there's overpowered, and then there's this. It has the same base stat total as either of Mewtwo's Mega forms (which is the highest of any Pokemon) WITHOUT taking items into account, it can nullify its most common weakness, it can flat out remove the ability to have weather, and its movepool is up there with Mew's. It's more busted than Arceus or Mewtwo could even hope to be, which is saying a lot. - WonkeyDude98

The guy is a BEAST. He has the highest base stat of any pokemon, doesn't need a megastone to mega evolve, and makes Arceus, Mewtwo, Garatina, Dialga, and Palkia pee in their pants.
