Top 10 Strongest Starter Pokemon

bob_mc_bobinson
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 Swampert, known in Japan as Laglarge, is a Pokémon species in Nintendo and Game Freak's Pokémon franchise.

Swampert's only weakness is grass which is easily countered by ice and poison type moves. Ex: Ice beam and Sludge Wave. When I used Swampert in OR, it literally never fainted. I refused to use other pokemon against May's Sceptile, even though don't had Swellow, Salamence, and Ninetails who each could easily have killed her Sceptile. I will always hold Swampert in a special place in my heart (like friends). I used to love Oshawott because it was my first ever pokémon, but then I had Swampert and everything changed.

Mega swampert rules

At level 67 it beat a team of legendary pokemon, THAT WEre level 73

It can defeat even blastoise.

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 ...read more.

Greninja is amazingly powerful.

3 Charizard Charizard Charizard, known in Japan as Lizardon, is a Pokémon species in Nintendo and Game Freak's Pokémon franchise. Created by Ken Sugimori, Charizard first appeared in the video games Pokémon Red and Blue and subsequent sequels. They have later appeared in various merchandise, spinoff titles and animated ...read more.

My favorite animal is a dragon plus my element is fire

Charizard's mega X evolution skews its weaknesses, also it goes from bein a fire and flying to being a fire and dragon. Meaning water moves are no longer super effective, and it is not weak to ice and fairy types. Also it knows hone claws. If you teach it dragon claw (as to the fact that its not full on dragon type so it can't learn Draco meteor. Though Draco meteor will actually be weaker then teaching it dragon claw) and mega evolve it, it gets a boost to damage because its now a dragon type (which due to same type move boosts makes dragon claw stronger) then the ability hone claw boosts dragon claw even more because it is a physical move so with the correct training dragon claw can almost always be a one hit KO and when it isn't a one hit KO it does a ton of damage. Teach Charizard iron tail or iron head, and thunder punch, and he/she can easily eliminate Pokémon he/she is weak too. Plus flamethrower is a great move to teach it because no recharge meaning no moment of weakness but ...more

Lol stealth rock - PirahnaPlant

Charizard has no viability. Only it's mega forms do. - dankchu

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

"! Charmander is so strong! " No it's not. I can kill one of it with a water bottle. Yeah, you heard me A WATER BOTTLE out of all of the other things. The next time you see this pokèmon, remember what I said.

Charmander can beat nearly anything

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

5 Blaziken Blaziken Blaziken, known in Japan as Bashāmo, is a Pokémon species in Nintendo and Game Freak's Pokémon franchise.

Best pokemon ever with speed boost and very high attack stats. Teach it blaze kick and it will destroy grass types. And sky uppercut and it will destroy greninja.

WHUT?!?! Blaziken is this low? He should be at least number 2 or 1. He is the only starter other than Greninja that's in Uber and has Speed Boost. Just give this bad boy blaze kick and he'll DEMOLISH anything weak to fire.

Definitely should be number 1, all the way. Speed boost plus it's crazy attack stat is just too much. - dankchu

This guy is in the Uber tier, why is he so low

V 23 Comments
6 Infernape Infernape Infernape, known in Japan as Goukazaru, is a Pokémon species in Nintendo and Game Freak's Pokémon franchise.

Beat the third strongest Pokemon in SINNOH

I think it is infernape

He is the best pokemon

Infirmape is so good he belong at number one he is ashes 2nd strongest pokemon BUT I THINK he's HIS BEST POKEMON

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

I have ivysaur and so excited about it evolving into Venusaur!

This has got to be the most underrated starter - ass23

Well bulbasaur has one of the strongest starter pack because of its last evolution venusaur!

Noo how how is not in the top 10 he so strong

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

1 word: TANK
It can defeat all the starters in its region and also every fire starter (Even Charizard,Since it knows stealth rock) with its ground type moves. - DemonSpiritGhostKitten

best

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.

9 Empoleon Empoleon Empoleon, known in Japan as Emperte, is a Pokémon species in Nintendo and Game Freak's Pokémon franchise.

Nope! It's weak! It can lose to both of the sinnoh starters because of it's horrible typing! - DemonSpiritGhostKitten

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.

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

It's just the first evolution. Out of top 10.

13 Squirtle Squirtle Squirtle, known in Japan as Zenigame, is a Pokémon species in Nintendo and Game Freak's Pokémon franchise.

He is the best even gary tells he actually gary is better than ash blastoise should be no. 1 and squirtle above charmander

SQUIRTLE FOR DAYS squirtles is sop op for me its hydro pump is so good but low accuracy like aqua tail

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

21 Typhlosion Typhlosion Typhlosion, known in Japan as Bakphoon, is a Pokémon species in Nintendo and Game Freak's Pokémon franchise.

Typhlosion should be number 1! Charizard is number 3, but it's just overrated! Typhlosion is way better than Charizard could ever be! Name 1 person that does had with Typhlosion that isn't a complete dumbass!

Typhlosion is a monster. I had a level 50 on my team against my brother' level 89 Feraligatr 1v1 and Feraligatr got wrecked

Typhlosion deserves to be in the top ten because if you raise it properly it is a literal tank. The Typlosion I had in soul silver was hardly ever affected by confusion and paralyze. Typhlosion is also my favorite

Typhlosion is the only reason I played gen 4 heart gold and soul silver
