In your own opinion, which Pokemon would you say is the strongest Pokemon and which Pokemon would you say is the Weakest Pokemon and why?
Also, who is the strongest & weakest Pokemon on your team, it can be ANY game.
(Not Including Legenderies)

Strongest Pokemon:
Garchomp, why? Because it has really high stats (especially Attack) and can learn some awesome moves.




Weakest Pokemon:
Magikarp, I'm sure the majority of you would agree with me on this as it is near enough useless.





but what's your opinion?

WRONG!

Garchomp may be mighty, but it goes down like a fly upon contact with an ice attack.

And magikarp isn't the most pathetic thing around either. That title goes to Sunkern, who has a much lower base stat, paired with the fact that at least Magikarp is hearty and able to withstand many times more physical abuse then the puny sprouting, not to mention the karp's flailing powers!

But that puny little sprout can beat Magikarp. It has a much better moveset. The weakest Pokemon has to be Caterpie. It has Tackle and String Shot. Even Weedle is better and can Poison opponents. As for strongest, we all know Smeargle is the best. Okay, I'm totally going by looks and awesomeness for that. I don't really have an opinion on the strongest Pokemon because I think all of them have a potential, even the little Caterpie I just criticized.

caterpie is, at base stats and movesets, probably the worst.

Igotta say that the best it... by my own personal bias... Flygon. same problem as garchomp, but he just looks powerfull, cute and awesome all in one pokemon.
and you know what they say, garchomp was just a repeated flygon, 'cause he was so AWESOME. :D

In My Opinion, Salamence (even with the same problems as Flygon and Garchomp) is the strongest. Ditto is the weakest, if you think about it, it transforms into the pokemon its fighting, which doesn't really give it an advantage.

Totally depends on the actual Pokémon it copies. Dragon is weak to Dragon, and I know it likes to hit my Sneasel with Steel Claw once in a while.

In my Ruby game, Ralts is currently my weakest, since it's really low-leveled and only knows Growl and Confusion. Ironically, Gallade is probably my strongest, but he's tied with both of my Luxrays who do pretty well. Since my EV-trained 'ray has Ice Fang, even Ground moves don't get very far, which is his only weakness.

Bounce and higher base speed. I win.

Can Weedle Snore? Didn't think so. And Caterpie has higher base stats and Bug Bite as well.

No, not everything has potential.



Kyogre is the best by far. Water Spout + Thunder + Ice Beam + Surf = you scrambling to find something to beat it.

Unown is the worst. Yeah, it can kill things with special hidden powers, but... that's it. (IE Salamence dies to 2 Specs'd HP Ices, but I have no idea how to survive 1 attack.) It has no survivability, 1 attack (Well, that narrows the items down to 2!), and cannot evolve into something much better. Heck, even it's name says it: It's UN-OWN. The oposite of owning.

I'm surprised it took someone so long to mention Arceus, haha. XD It has the potential to be ANY time, and Judgement (which is a pretty powerful move) will always get STAB. Cool, amirite? :D And this is without mentioning the fact that it has the highest BST.
Despite this, I completely understand that Arceus isn't unstoppable. But I would say it's the strongest Pokemon just going by what I mentioned. Personally, I'd like to think Blaziken is something that is pretty amazing- especially since it now has access to Speed Boost. It's one of my favourite Pokemon aesthetically too. :D

As for weakest, of course it's Sunkern when going by BST. I'd like to think Metapod and Kakuna caught in Viridian Forest as the weakest though. All they can do is boost their defence until they eventually get defeated. That's... pretty sad in my opinion. Of course Magikarp with only Splash is another iconic, helpless image.

Legendaries aside, I've always admired Snorlax. Tough to knock down and has a good attack.

Another great pokemon is Blissey. If you do the right EV training (working on the defense/sp. defense and sp. attack), it could be really strong. The moves I reccomend Blissey should have is Softboiled, Flamethrower, Ice Beam, and Thunderbolt.

I'm glad someone else thought of Blaziken, i absolutely love that Pokemon!!
He looks awesome, has a very cool typing and can do a lot of damage in battles. Of course, no pokemon can hold the title of being the best of all, but my personal favorite is Blaziken too.

For weakest Pokemon i think that Magikarp is pretty high up the list. It's true that a Metapod caught in Viridan Forest only knows Harden, but if you actually evolve a Caterpie, that Metapod will at least know Tackle. Magikarp can learn Bounce, that's true, but if you just caught one when fishing, he only has Splash, which makes him the weakest pokemon out there imo.

Ditto would have to be the strongest after having the Imposter ability imho. Basically it can not only be anything it wants to be but it can potentially outshine the Pokemon it copied altogether if the player knows what they're doing.

Weakest Pokemon if you ask me is Hoppip since it's the very definition of delicate little flower lol.

How can Ditto be the strongest when it is always EQUAL to it's opponent? One of the strongest Pokemon is Chansey, with Eviolite, it just takes ALL hits easily.
