If you’re just like me, you might like Pokémon. I get questions from my friends all the time asking what the strongest Pokémon are. Well, I’ll be answering those questions in this blog post. Here are the top seven strongest Pokémon of all time.
Mew is a mythical Pokémon that is very powerful. It is similar to the Pokémon Mewtwo (hence the name, Mewtwo), but it is the original Pokémon. It is not available to catch in any Pokémon game! The only obtainable way to get this Pokémon is by using the Pokeball Plus, and redeeming it in Let’s Go Pikachu or Let’s Go Eevee. Mew is a Pokémon capable of transforming into any other Pokémon because it is made of the DNA of every Pokémon.
Fun Fact: The Pokémon Ditto was another attempt of recreating Mew.
Charizard is the evolved form from one of the three original starter Pokémon (the others being Squirtle and Bulbasaur). It is from the first generation of Pokémon.
- Type: Fire & Flying
- Mega Evolutions: 2 mega evolution forms (X and Y) and a Gigantamax form in the new games.)
- Damage: High base stat and can deal hard hits and use very powerful fire type moves.
- Special Powers: Flight (in some video games)
In games, you cannot see this Pokémon spawn on maps. You can only breed it or get it from the starter, Charmander. Charizard has become one of the faces of the Pokémon franchise.
Although one of the newer entries on this list, Urshifu is a strong Pokémon that is available in the Isle of Armor DLC in Pokémon Sword and Shield. Once you obtain Kubfu (the pre-evolution to Urshifu) to level 70 or higher, you can take it to one of the battle towers. Each tower turns Kubfu into a different type when evolving: dark and water. There is also a special move obtainable depending on which type you choose. You will obtain Kubfu from Dojo Master Mustard after defeating the 3 trials. Both forms of Urshifu have a Dynamax form. As you can see from all the details, Urshifu is a very powerful Pokémon.
You might be surprised that Garchomp is on this list, considering it isn’t a legendary Pokémon but it is a Pseudo legendary. A Pseudo legendary Pokémon is a Pokémon with base stats that meet or go higher than 600. It is by far the strongest Pokémon that is not a legendary.
- Availability: In most Pokémon games, however it is not found in Let’s Go Eevee or Let’s Go Pikachu. Available in Sword and Shield in the Crown Tundra Expansion Pass.
- Mega Evolution: Can mega-evolve with a Garchompite.
- Damage: Can take and deal heavy hits. Has high attack stats, as well as high Health Points.
Rayquaza is a part of the weather trio in Pokémon, followed by Groudon and Kyogre. Rayquaza is a flying and dragon type that can deal powerful damage. Unlike most legendary Pokémon, Rayquaza has a mega evolution. This making it different from other Pokémon because it doesn’t evolve with a mega stone, it actually mega evolves with a move called Dragon Ascent. Rayquaza learns Dragon Ascent at the NPC that gets your Pokémon to remember certain moves. This Pokémon is very powerful and is rare to find. It is available in almost every Pokémon game made.
Mewtwo is a duplicate and a successful attempt of making a Pokémon stronger than the legendary Mew. This Pokémon is not real and was genetically modified by man with human DNA, allowing it to act and think like a normal human. Being very powerful, this Pokémon shows emotions, just like humans do. After being created and destroying the lab it was made in, it was used by the nefarious Giovanni, the leader of Team Rocket.
This Pokémon is understandably the strongest Pokémon. It has very high base stats and is the god of all Pokémon (based on the anime series). This Pokémon is followed by Dialga and Palkia, the other two members of the legendary trio. Trainers have attempted to catch Arceus, but no one has ever succeeded. The new Nintendo video game Pokémon Legends: Arceus, will debut in 2022 with Arceus serving as the cover of the game.
