I love Pokémon and have been watching the anime/cartoon ever since I was a little child! Pokémon is still popular!

1. Garchomp

This is one of the pseudo-legendary dragon introduced in Pokémon Diamond & Pearl. This ground and dragon dual type is very strong and packs a very serious punch. His stats are very high and can deal lots of damage to opponents. The pseudo-legendary Pokémon has a total base stat of 600. This big dragon has a massive weakness against ice type attacks and also weak against fairy. However, other than ice, fairy and dragon attacks, this big dragon has no other fears. Ash Ketchum's Gible is the pre evolved form of Garchomp. Cynthia, the champion of Sinnoh region, uses Garchomp in most battles and he is her signature Pokémon. Did I mention that Garchomp can even mega evolve? After mega evolving into an even bigger land dragon, Garchomp's base stats increase to 700.

2. Togekiss

Togekiss evolved from the cute, small and not so powerful Togepi. This Pokémon is rarely seen in the wild because of its rarity. However, Dawn received one from a princess. This Pokémon should definitively be included in the famous 20 cutest Pokémon list. Aside from appearance, this fairy and flying type Pokémon has very good stats. It also has lots of powerful moves that make use of those good stats. When it comes to non-legendary flying type Pokémon, Togekiss rules the sky. And, everyone needs a flying Pokémon in their party to carry them from town to town. This Pokémon fits the perfect role for that. Also, Togekiss (the whole evolution line) is very rare in the wild. So, having it in your party makes you a little special. With the her fairy type moves, Togekiss can stand up against powerful dragon type Pokémon with powerful fairy type moves such as moonblast.


3. Lucario

This Pokémon is very elusive in the Pokémon world. It is one of the few non-legendary Pokémon that can use aura sphere as an attack move. Lucario is fighting and steel dual type. It has many resistances thanks to its steel typing. This Pokémon has high stats that go well with its long list of powerful moves. Lucario is also a very good looking Pokémon as well. This is definitely a Pokémon that's been giving more love than most in the Pokémon anime and movies! Most recently, Ash caught a Riolu that eventually evolved into a Lucario. This strong Pokémon is the perfect complement to Ash's passionate personality. The Pokémon series love Ash's Lucario so much that they even decided to let Ash's Lucario mega evolve to achieve even greater heights in battles!


4. Gyarados

Let's talk about a generation one Pokémon, Gyarados. This water Pokémon is perfect for your journey because it will surf and carry you from place to place in comfort. This Pokémon is big and you will be comfortable riding on him than other smaller water Pokémon. During trainer battles, he will dominate the opponent with his powerful moves. And, as an added bonus, you can get him very early on in the game because Magikarp is everywhere. Even though Magikarp is very common, Gyarados is rare. In the Pokémon world, it's really hard to evolve Magikarp to Gyarados. Upon evolution, this already powerful Pokémon can even take it to the next level by mega evolving into an even bigger dragon. But, he does have a 4 times weakness to electric attacks. However, by mega evolving, he will only have a 2 times weakness to electric attacks. Do you remember Misty? Her signature Pokémon is a Gyarados. Everyone is so glad that Misty finally overcame her fear of Gyarados!

5. Greninja

Ash's Greninja is the spotlight for the whole Pokémon XY series. And for good reason too. Greninja is able to achieve a mega evolution without the mega stone. He is also very cool Pokémon that is insanely strong (stronger than the average Greninja). With terrible moves (cut, aerial ace, water shuriken, and double team), he's able to hold his own and win many battles. Unbelievable! If Ash taught him stronger moves light hydro pump, night slash or extrasensory, he would be even more unstoppable. Have you seen the shiny Greninja? Instead of the dark blue color, the shiny version is black with red around its neck. Talk about looking fierce? This water type Pokémon can be obtained as your starter. It will sure to make your journey a lot easier.


6. Charizard X

Charizard just gets too much love, from generation one to even now! Every diehard Pokémon fan has a soft spot for this fire and flying type Pokémon. Ash's Charizard was in the spotlight for many seasons. Even though it's not the strongest Pokémon ever, it looks amazing. And it's one of the only two Pokémon that have two mega evolutions. Talk about love. By evolving into mega Charizard X, this dragon look alike finally gained the dragon typing. Is Charizard X rare? Most definitely. Charizard will only mega evolve into this form with a very rare mega stone. As a trainer, you have to find it or get it from someone else to help your Charizard achieve the fierce form.


7. Golisopod

This Pokémon is Guzma's signature and main Pokémon. He is very powerful with a good move pool. With first impression, he will be able to land a powerful physical attack that has a base power of 80 by first joining a Pokémon battle. Just look at the beast, he is fully armored and ready to fight. If power is not enough, he will definitely intimidate with that face. Did you see how badly Golisopod beat up Primarina? Is Golisopod hard to catch and find in the wild? Yes! To find its pre-evolved form, you have to find a way to catch it first. Wimpod is a coward and runs away very fast when it sees people. You have to use a very fast Pokémon to fight it and hopefully catch it. You can also use a ghost Pokémon to use mean look and prevent it from running away. Then, you have to train this little Pokémon hard to evolve it into Golisopod.

8. Metagross

This is another pseudo-legendary Pokémon that is very strong because of its high stats and good typing. This is one of the few psychic Pokémon that lacks a weakness to dark or ghost type moves because of its steel type traits. It is very strong and has high defense stats. The champion Steven in Hoenn region has a shiny Metagross that can mega evolve. Did I mention what shiny Metagross looks like? The silver and gold colors make this Pokémon look even better than the regular form. So, this Pokémon is not only strong but looks extremely tough as well. Unfortunately, Metagross and its pre-evolved forms are extremely rare in the wild. In most games, you are given a Beldum after winning against the champion. Then, you have to evolve this Pokémon through lots of hard training.
