The Top Ten

Primarina has the highest Special Attack and Special Defense out of all starters... (excluding their mega forms)... She is also very useful in competitive battles thanks to being Fairy... She can learn variety types of tm that can cover her two out of three weakness... For Poison type... She can counter it with Psychic... For Grass type.. She can counter it with Ice Beam...

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 is a really powerful pokemon, I agree, even in some games it really is Level 36 and It defeated a level 80, it should be Number 1! So.. GO! Greninja!

It sucks greninja can literally get two shot by pokemon that are just effective against it

Greninja is a beast he and any one who thinks he's slow he is a ninja

He must be better than Primarina.

3 Feraligatr Feraligatr

I have a Feraligatr and she's my best team member in Soulsilver! - FluffyBanana

Wrecks the elite four

uhh huh

Feraligatr aced a team on its own which included a higher level greninja,swampert,blastoise,empoleon and primark na. And don't just say I'm biased cause believe it or not feraligatr is my least favourite Pokemon but somehow aced things stronger Pokemon,on my team could never do.

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

This is my favorite pokemon ever! It might be one of the best water type to use, even though, Greninja has more love, I think, but go, Swampert! GO!

Yes I most definitely agree, that's why I chose Mudkip as a starter - PokemonGOSucks

Straight Tank that smacks like truck. Plus the dual typing makes it pretty unstoppable.

Besides having a mega, Swampert by it self has great stats all around. Swamperts mega makes this Pokemon become to OP and to add on swamperts OP his typing in my opinion is the best, Water/Ground which gets rid of super effective electric moves giving this typing only one weakness and that is grass.

5 Blastoise Blastoise Blastoise, known in Japan as Kamex, is a Water–type Pokémon species in Nintendo and Game Freak's Pokémon franchise.

Blastoise is one of the original starters who has good bulk and sports a mega evolution giving it more strength offensively.

Blastoise is my favorite starter it's only bad st at is speed but same with swampert also it is your starter so most likely is going to be for highest level

It is the best and favourite pokemon

6 Samurott Samurott

Oshawott is awesome. All I can say.

Great Pokemon

Samurott is op, IT HAS SWORDS! It learns a lot TM and helpful move that help counter its weakness.

I don't get why this is 7th. Samurott just looks awesome, ok? The fact that greninja is water and dark doesn't mean it's better, it just has a lot more weaknessess. The fact that Samurott has a simple water typing makes it only weak to grass and electric.

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.

Great Pokemon. Can cover all of its weaknesses, great defensive AND offensive typing, does absolutely GREAT in Ubers and every tier it is allowed in, OK abilities and great design. Having trouble with every Xerneas running around in Ubers? Use Empoleon. Ground types? Hydro Pump, Scald, Ice Beam; you get the point. Fighting types? Drill Peck! Grass types? Ice Beam! Electric types? Earthquake! Want to boost Empoleon's attack even more? Swords Dance! Want some reliable recovery? Leftovers + Aqua Ring or Rest! Want Empoleon to be faster? Aqua Jet solves the problem! Weakness Policy Torrent Empoleon is also great. It fits on any item with almost any item. Plus, it's unpredictable.

So much better than Feraligatr, Samurott, and non-mega blastoise

Only con is I wish it was ICE type

I love this pokeon! It might be because of nostalgia cause gen 4 was my first game and piplup was my first pokeon EVER but I really do love Empoleon. Not to mention water-steel is a unique typing.

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

# team Poplio #Fairy typing

9 Vaporeon Vaporeon

If Eevee is a starter, then Vaporeon can be a water type starter Pokemon. Vaporeon is chill. Good stats, nice design, Vaporeon is a good Pokemon.

10 Froakie Froakie Froakie, known in Japan as Keromatsu, is a Pokémon species in Nintendo and Game Freak's Pokémon franchise.

Froakie isn't the best water starter, that's for sure, but he's probably one of the strongest early-game Pokemon and sure, Greninja sucks with all of its weaknesses, but at least Froakie is a strong early game pokemon with lick, which is a ghost type move.

The thing is, Froakie is far from the best water starter, 'cause it's literally not even evolved nor could it beat any Pokemon with a level higher than 15 if it's level 5.
