Greetings Pokefans! Michael here.
This video is sponsored by Poke Amino! If you don’t already know what Poke Amino is,
it’s kind of a social network for nothing but Pokemon. You can join public chats with
other Pokemon fans, read cool posts on the news feed or write your own, and so much more!
You can also follow your friends or people you’re a fan of, such as myself.
You can access Poke Amino by downloading the newly launched Amino master app with the links

So go download the Amino App and follow me on Poke Amino, because if you follow me there,
you’re entered to win a $25 Gamestop gift card! Pretty sweet, huh?
But now on to the video. We all know that some Pokemon are stronger than others, but
which ones exactly are the strongest out of all of them? Well today, I’m going to answer
that by counting down the Top 5 Strongest Pokemon of all time.
This list was determined mainly by base stat total, but since there are quite a few Pokemon
with the same BST, I took into account some other factors to break the ties. Also I am
not counting mega Pokemon as separate Pokemon. So if I wanted to put Mega Mawile in here,
the entry would be just Mawile.
So without further ado, here are the Top 5 Strongest Pokemon of All Time.
Number 5 - Arceus
You’d think the God of all Pokemon and the being that created the universe would be the
most powerful Pokemon of all time...but it’s not. That doesn’t mean this thing isn’t
obscenely powerful though. Arceus...or Arceus...however you want me to pronounce it...has a base stat
total of 720, with 120 in every stat across the board. Arceus may be godly, but those
stats are demonic.
In addition to having spectacular stats, Arceus also has some other phenomenal stuff going
for it. It can learn 76 Gen 6 TM and HM moves and 24 Gen 6 move tutor moves, become all
18 types via use of the plates, gets stab extremespeed, AND learns a move that has 100
base power with 100% accuracy that can also become any type. This thing is a beast. I
mean he’s no Helix, but he’s freaking powerful...Omastar isn’t on this list guys
that was a joke.
Number 4 - Kyogre So this is the first tie on this list, but
I’ll explain what I did to break the tie in the next number. But for now, let’s talk
about Kyogre. Regular Kyogre only has a base stat total of 670, which while impressive,
is not nearly high enough to be in the Top 5 Strongest Pokemon of all time. Primal Kyogre
however is a totally different story.
It has a base stat total of 770 with a staggering 180 base special attack, and assuming that
its permanent rain isn’t cancelled by a Primal Groudon or Mega Rayquaza, all of its
water moves will be boosted. That makes Origin Pulse absolutely devastating. It also has
a fairly wide movepool, and even though its physical attack is lower, Primal Kyogre’s
is still 150 which is more than useful for its large amount of physical moves.
Number 3 - Groudon
So regular Groudon and Kyogre both have a base stat total of 670, and both Primal Groudon
and Kyogre have a total of 770. So why did I give Groudon the edge here? Well there’s
a couple reasons.
First, Groudon’s physical movepool is noticeably wider than Kyogre’s special movepool, with
Groudon learning 31 different physical moves and Kyogre only learning 23. Since Groudon
has a monstrous physical attack, this is important.
But even though Groudon has a high physical attack, most of its special moves are still
really useful, since Primal Groudon still has base 150 special attack. Kyogre also has
base 150 physical attack, but Groudon is in a different and better situation due to its
Every fire move that Groudon learns is special except for fire punch. However, all of those
fire moves get power boosts from the sun that it creates every time it enters battle, so
its fire moves are on par with its physical moves. In addition to that, Primal Groudon
gets a stab boost for its fire moves, so that’s even more beef to it.
But Groudon’s sun weather isn’t just superior to Kyogre’s rain because of the fire boost.
Primal Groudon’s Desolate Land prevents any water type attacks from happening, while
Primal Kyogre’s Primordial Sea prevents any fire type attacks from happening. In other
word’s, Groudon’s ability totally negates a critical 4x weakness, while Kyogre’s negates
a type of move you probably weren’t going to use anyways.
Assuming their own weather is up, Kyogre has 2 weaknesses in electric and grass. Groudon
has 1 in ground, which is amusingly ironic. So basically what it all boils down to is
that Groudon is stronger than Kyogre because its weather benefits it more than Kyogre’s
Number 2 - Mewtwo
Mewtwo is the OG OP Pokemon, but he isn’t actually the strongest Pokemon of all time.
I’ll explain why in the number 1 slot, but for now let’s talk about why Mewtwo is so
high on this list.
The regular form of this clone Pokemon has a BST of 680, which is really high. There
are only 15 Pokemon or Pokemon forms with higher BSTs than it, but guess what? 2 of
them are itself!
Mewtwo is already really powerful, but then it gets 2 mega evolutions that both have BSTs
of 780, the highest in the game. But their offensive power tops the charts too, with
Mega Mewtwo X’s Attack stat being 190 and Mega Mewtwo Y’s special attack stat being
194, both of which are matched by no other Pokemon. And their other attacking stats are
both at least 150, which is still astronomical.
I don’t understand how a cloned Pokemon could have not one, but two different mega
stones that make it even more absurdly powerful, but even then, it’s still not the strongest
Pokemon of all time.
Number 1 - Rayquaza
Now I promise you I didn’t put Rayquaza here just because it’s my favorite legendary
Pokemon. Rayquaza is actually ridiculous powerful.
Rayquaza and Mewtwo actually have a lot of similarities. In their regular form, both
have a base stat total of 680. Their stats are about the same, with Mewtwo being a lot
faster and Rayquaza having much higher attack. Their mega forms also have the same base stat
total of 780. So why does Rayquaza get the edge?
It can hold an item.
Mega Rayquaza does not require a mega stone to mega evolve, so therefore it can hold extremely
useful items such as a choice scarf, life orb, leftovers, or anything else. The Mega
Mewtwos are stuck holding their mega stones, so their hands aren’t free like Mega Rayquaza’s
are. This fact combined with Mega Rayquaza’s absurd stats and movepool caused it to be
banned from the ubers tier in Smogon, while the two Mega Mewtwos had been sitting there
for a year.
In addition, thanks to Mega Rayquaza’s Delta Stream, it gets rid of 2 of its weaknesses,
including a crippling 4x weakness in ice, and it gains an extra resistance to electric.
It’s now only weak to 2 types, while all the Mewtwo forms are weak to three.
Rayquaza with its mega form is without a doubt the strongest Pokemon ever to exist, and I
never want to encounter one of the other side of the battlefield...unless I’m trying to
So there we have it! Those are the Top 5 Strongest Pokemon of all time. Most of these got on
this list due to addition of mega evolution and primal reversion, so I’m curious to
see if Sun and Moon will do something to make Pokemon even stronger than these. I really
hope not because that would just be silly.
