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

Made my vote on Swampert not because it's a fave (it's not) because it has the highest best of any starter, and it has a mega... yeah, Blue Kermit doesn't have it on this fish, axolotl, monster... thing (by the way, I actually chose Sceptile in ORAS because it's a raptor with a pine growing out of it's ass) - ThyCheshireCat

This guy is a great starter, but where's Charizard?! I'd say Charizard is the most powerful Pokemon, but instead we have Charmander?! Does Charmander mean Charizard (X/Y), or actually the first evolution?!

I beat every gym with just swamped except 7th also only has a type advantage to grass and can learn ice beam to counter grass types sometimes the only problems the speed

This... is great.

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.

Greninja could easily destroy swampert with a protean grass knot not to mention the vareity of moves it can learn work great with protean, not to mention the only starter that outspeeds him has to mega evolve (Mega Sceptile) plus he can shadow sneak with priority, turn into a ghost type not be weak and then uses mega sceptile's speed to it's advantage turning into an ice type using ice beam before it can predict with a focus blast, and if sceptile ain't killed yet just use shadow sneak again

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 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

Greninja is greatest pokemon he had win from mega sceptile also he is awesome and handsome

3 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

Why Is This 18 Have You Seen Ash's Charizard It's A Beast Whoever Made This Does Not Like Charizard

Charizard is bpe meaning best pokemon ever

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

Charmander is obviously stronger than charizard

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

Why so low? It's mega is awesome competitively. It has speed boost and incredible stats! Charizard sucks because first of all it is overrated and always gets as much spotlight as pikachu. Second, it's typing sucks against rock types and since stealth rock is so common in competitive, just sending out charizard will cut its hp down to half health! I mean come on, blaziken is the real best fire starter, not dumb charizard. I mean it does look cool and all, but how can you not say that blazkien looks awesome though?

It goes from Torchic, the cute little chic, to Combusken, the firey flaming fighter, to Blaziken, the lean, mean, fighting machine! The best by far. I know there are a lot of fire-fighting types, but this is the legend, the original, the boss!

Beast poke that wrecks grass rock and dark types

Why is he so low!

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

Look at infernape it is so cool I even used infernape in pokemon games

Infernape is OP.It can attack on BOTH the physical attacking side as well as the special.It has bad defences but you don't even have to use some of them.It learns a lot of good moves like close combat,flare blitz and flame wheel,it can learn a lot of TMs and it is compatible with any type of attack physical or special.Infernape is my favourite pokemon just waiting for mega infernape...

7 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.

I really don't regret starting with turtwig.

It's hard to believe that little adorable squirt Turtwig evolved into Torterra! Anyone who bullies Grotle or Turtwig is going to have a hard time when Grotle evolves.

8 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.

What I like about Empoleon is his fusions. the best one I like is with bisharp. He Just looks so sick

13 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!

14 Turtwig Turtwig

Turtwig is my favourite pokemon ever

Although I don't think it's the strongest or weakest but I think it should be higher

So underrated strong quick defensive should be number 1234 and 5

People underestimate this pokemon

19 Typhlosion Typhlosion

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

Eruption? Easily one of the best starter moves - xYobi87

It needs to be in the top 10
