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

I love swampert, swampert is so awesome, he is at level 100, my first pokemon is mudkip

2 Greninja Greninja Greninja is a Water/Dark type Pokemon introduced in Gen 6. It is the evolved form of Frogadier and the final evolve form of the water starter Froakie. Aside from the usual Torrent ability all Water starters have (Which raises the power of its Water moves), it also the the ability Protean, which changes more.

He is the one who can defeat and fight face to face very hardy with any pokemon it's stronger power is when he is with ash I MEAN trainer belief which make him strongest ever

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

This Pokemon has a lot of weaknesses but somehow someway can DEAL WITH IT the only water starters that I think can come close to the power of this hydro pump machine are the famous and loved Blastoise and Swampert. It doesn't really need its protean as long as you ev train it right

-Is a Frog/Ninja
-Water and dark type
-Quickest starter Pokemon
Only Pokemon that has water shuriken
Just awesome
Hail lord Greninja.

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

What! No!

6 Infernape Infernape

Infernape is super boss. I mean, what's not to like him, he's a flaming hot monkey. I sweeper the gyms and the elite 4 with this bad ass pokemon. The only reason I play platinum is to use this pokemon terminator.

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

It my favorite pokemon

7 Empoleon Empoleon Empoleon is a large, navy blue, penguin-like Pokémon. It has a wide, yellow beak with three pointed horns that form a trident-shaped crest and small, blue eyes. Large horns are a symbol of leadership and strength for Empoleon. There is a blue marking resembling a crown over its eyes and a white, lacy more.

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

I have a level 72 Empoleon and he's a king against fire types.

Steel type is amazing

I agree with the comment about the Mega Evolution wrecking a lot of things.

Its mega evolution wrecks a lot of things.

I agree with the comment about the Mega Evolution wrecking a lot of things.

Sceptile is my favourite starter because I like geckos plus he looks awesome especially in mega form (his mega ability is lightning rod) He has awesome moves such as leaf storm,leaf blade,false swipe and by using a tm or hm sola beam.Pzz he should have a higher spot.

16 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.

Cool Pokemon

Yes just yes!

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

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

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

That guy who made this list is extremely cattleman.

Definitely 1st place

19 Pikachu Pikachu Pikachu are a species of Pokémon, fictional creatures that appear in an assortment of video games, animated television shows and movies, trading card games, and comic books licensed by The Pokémon Company, a Japanese corporation.

He's so incredibly strong. How can you not vote for him?!

He is a starter in pokemon yellow version

Pikachu technically isn't even a starter

I want to snap pkachu's neck.

20 Chesnaught Chesnaught

Hos dare you he is the best starter pokemon alive and the strongest way better then a puny charmander

Right bra he sucks

I...hate Chestnaught

Beautiful and strong. Way better than that ugly old fox with clown hair and football decease and a ugly ass dress (delphox) or that descusting flat face frog that wears it's tounge as it's scarf (greninja). Also greninja has a dick like what is he crazy frog? No wonder why chesnaught covers it's ears with that helmet, it doesn't wanna hear those annoying songs what does the delphox say and greninjas stupid annoying cringe voice.
