Top 10 Strongest Starter Pokemon

Up To Generation 6 (X And Y) This Is The Top 10 Strongest Pokemon To Use In Battle (This Is Not On Opinion Or Stat Wise, It Is Based On They're Quality In Battle. This Is Also Of Their Finale Forms)

The Top Ten

1 Swampert Swampert

I've used this pokemon in countless games, it is a beast, level it up, unstoppable, it resists moves of all types but grass, but I taught mine ice fang so now that's covered

It can mega evolve! That's awesome. It is incomparable to any Pokemon. And it's stats are way better than other 3 stage starters/Pokemon

Look at the stats. Pair it up with Blaziken and the duo it's unstoppable unless you encounter like higher leveled Pokemon but yeah. - supervg123

It's my favorite starter and my second favorite pokemon

2 Greninja Greninja

With is HA protean and his high speed he can become a sweeper and with his stats he can run a physical or special set

He has a mediocre attack, only in the anime he is strong.

Greninja is the boss he is way better than torterra and swampert

I love greninja not only cause it looks like a badass but it's a sweeper, it's fast, and it's the only starter that does not need a megastone to mega evolve. It's because of battle bond,an ablity that turns Greninja into a maniac ninja that's fast and powerful.Thug life

3 Torterra Torterra

Unbelievable this guy simply doesn't die. Great wall and, or sweeper undefeated typing getting rid of all of grasses weakness

It beats all the fire starters with ground moves, and beats all the water starters with grass moves.

This this is a tank its amazingly OP

Even being a plant type, the type with most weakenesses, It can tank up to 3 supereffective moves.

4 Charmander Charmander Charmander, known as Hitokage in Japan, is a Pokémon species in Nintendo and Game Freak's Pokémon franchise.

I have a level 100 Charizard and he's boss, I beat pretty much the entire Pokemon league with him alone. Plus he looks super awesome, I mean who doesn't want a flying fire breathing dragon on their team.

Charizard X lets go beat that Swampert

Charizard can mega evolve to Charizard X or Charizard Y

Omestly charrmander and its evolutions beats all the other starters I, for those who love cuteness, here you go a charmander, for those who love epicness hear you go charizard and for those who just love fire pokemom and strength here you go the hole evolution line.And who can forget Mega Evolutions, they jusy make charizard cooler and + charizard has 2 Mega Evolutions so that's cool and 1 of them was made before Mega Evolutions themselfs where made and 1 can beat MEWTWO.I mean gosh Charizard you have to give the other good starters a chance like sceptile and graninja, becuase for now there the only compatition and maybe the new starters like incinaroar are compatition to but for now keep, ruling charmander!

5 Infernape Infernape

He's based on GOKU. Swampert is based on some ugly monster thing. Mega infernape will be a beast when it comes out

Infernape is a beast out speeds and OHKO's everything he just will never lose he is so OP there is nothing more to say

Infernape is a monkey with lice

Nothing stops my Infernape it OHKOs everything with its awesome moveset

7 Empoleon Empoleon

Empoleon is better than anything why do you think it's called empoleon emperor a powerful leader empoleon come on empoleon is the best with its hydro cannon nothing can defeat it

I completed a solo run on platinum using Empoleon (and a few HM slaves for getting around the place). Definitely recommend it, but my favourite is still torterra. - Wolftail

15 Squirtle Squirtle Squirtle, known as Zenigame in Japan, is a Pokémon species in Nintendo and Game Freak's Pokémon franchise. It was originally conceived by Game Freak's character development team and finalized by Chaniah Pantry. It is a squirrel-turtle hybrid .

Blastoise is the strongest kanto starter. If you focus your training on this guy he will be able to kill everything. Teach it blizzard, ice punch, or ice beam to take care of plant pokemon fast, and earthquake or dig for electric pokemon, along with skull bash for high physical damage and hydropump for a devastating water move, and he will be unstoppable.

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

I saw a swampert and one shotted it with a fire move it should be the best

Wait, how is Charmander in 4th place, while Charizard is in 18th?

He's strong and looks awesome and most of all he learns relly good moves

Charzard is the best there's ever been dicks
