There are so many Pokemon to rank in Ash Ketchum’s universe that we couldn’t fit them all into an article. From Legendary Pokemon to regular Pokemon, there are many powerful beasts in the series and games. Pikachu might be the most popular Pokemon ever! But the criteria for the most powerful don’t include popularity.
As you might have guessed, Legendary Pokemon are the most powerful in the series and games. It is regardless of the number of times a regular Pokemon has evolved. Even the boost from special transformations can’t balance the stats of regular Pokemon against Legendary Pokemon.
Types of Pokemon
There are different types of Pokemon to catch and watch in games and series, respectively. Heck, players will find 18 different types of Pokemon, including Dark, Psychic, Steel, Fighting, Rock, Fire, Poison, Ground, Ice, Water, Dragon, and Ghost. But the main four types of Pokemon are Fire, Water, Grass, and Rock.
The Top 10 Pokemon Ranked!
Don’t dive into the world of Pokemon without knowing the strongest beasts. So, you’ll be able to keep up if you’re ever in a conversation with other fans. Have a look at them below.
By looks alone, Arceus is regal and powerful, since it’s wrapped in gold. Arceus is considered the god or creator of the Pokemon universe. It ushered in time, space, and antimatter, which are represented by the Creation Trio. Later on, it created the Lake Guardians Azelf, Mesprit, and Uxie, which represent willpower, emotion, and knowledge, respectively.
Arceus can speak to other beings telepathically and can even command other Legendary Pokemon. It’s also the sole holder of the Multitype ability. The Multitype allows Arceus to change its type depending on the plate or type of Z-Crystal it holds.
Mewtwo is based on Mew, a Mythical Pokemon, but it’s man-made while also being biological. Using samples from the parent Pokemon, this genetically-enhanced Psychic-type Pokemon is the closest to human beings as far as the emotional spectrum goes. The beast can fly using telekinesis and talk using telepathy.
Mewtwo is prideful to a fault, which shows in his domineering attitude. Among its impressive repertoire of abilities are its extreme durability, ability to teleport across great distances, and the fact that it doesn’t even need the help of a Trainer to win its battles.
Giratina is one of the Creation Trio that was created by Arceus. Unlike its siblings, this winged Pokemon controls antimatter, so it’s a Ghost/Dragon type. Since its domain is antimatter, Giratina has total control over the Distortion World, which is the reverse of the regular Pokemon universe. So, it can deny or grant entry into this realm. Giratina was banished from the regular realm because of its fiery temper, thirst for destruction, and cruel hobbies.
Dialga is a Steel/Dragon-type Pokemon who is the embodiment of time itself. Yes, it’s one of the Creation Trio, so it can control time, travelling to the future and past just for the fun of it. Dialga’s special power is Pressure, which is an ability that forces its opponents to expend twice as much energy for every move they execute. To cement its position as the time god, Dialga’s heartbeats are related to the flow of time in the Pokemon universe.
Palkia is the third member of the Creation Trio, so it’s also a Dragon type. Not to mention, it has total control over space and water. Legend says space expanded when Arceus birthed Palkia. Like Dialga, Palkia is directly connected to space, and its death could spell trouble for the universe. The Pokemon can also create new dimensions to explore or allow other beings to populate them.
Rayquaza is the leader of the Weather Legendaries, meaning the sky is its home. It’s like how a fish is only meant to live in water rather than on land. Physically, Rayquaza looks like a giant snake with two front hands/claws. It also Mega Evolves after learning the Dragon Ascent. The endearing thing about Rayquaza is that it is a natural protector of humans. It even defends the Earth from atmospheric threats like meteors.
Groudon is a sleek name for a Ground-type Pokemon that is also Kyogre’s rival and one of the members of the Weather Legendaries. We rank Groudon as the seventh strongest Pokemon on the list because it creates continents. It’s responsible for volcanic eruptions that spread lava, which is used to create or expand continents. Groudon is also the only Pokemon who can use the move, Precipice Blades.
Kyogre is the last member of the Weather Legendaries, with complete dominion over the sea. It’s a whale-like creature that’s also credited with the creation of the seas in the Pokemon universe. Kyogre can’t evolve the usual way, but with a Blue Orb, it can power up using Primal Reversion. Finally, it can create massive rain clouds that solve the issue of drought for people all over the world.
Ho-Oh is a Tower Duo Legendary that can fly and control fire just like a phoenix. It can rival the best Fire-type Pokemon in Pokemon Scarlet and Violet. Like the theory of rebirth at the centre of phoenix myths, Ho-Oh is credited with the cycles of life, death, and reincarnation. It brought back Legendaries like Raikou and Suicune. Ho-Oh can also enhance a dead Pokemon so it’s resurrected with a new form.
Celebi is a Psychic and Grass-type Pokemon that can control nature. It can heal other Pokemon, animals, or beasts, as well as fly. In fact, Celebi is one of the few Pokemon that can control time, even being able to visit the past or future at will. Compared to other Pokemon beasts, it’s only susceptible to seven weaknesses instead of the usual eight.
