Top 8 Most Powerful And Strongest Pokemons

Gotta Catch’em All! I am pretty sure that this famous line will always be remembered, as it is already etched in your childhood’s hearts and minds. Perhaps those who are oblivious of what pokemons are, they are those who have lived inside a cave for a hundred years. Young or old, rich or poor, girl or boy, everyone knows something about pokemons.

There are too many pokemons to count. Each has their own weaknesses and strengths, yet all are adorable and lovable that you really want to catch them all. No matter how great all pokemons are though, there is still this particular inclination for Pokémon collectors to look and collect the best and strongest of them all.

9 Factors That Decide Who is The Strongest Pokemon

But should not we ask what are the basis for their strengths? Are the strong pokemons labeled such because of their sizes, or is there something else? Well, believe it or not, there are different factors that affect the strength of pokemons too. These factors include:

1. Base stats and IVs

We have no control on these factors as a collector. The base stats are already given to pokemons, while IVs are based on luck.

2. Levels attained

Basically, when you increase your pokemon’s level from the time you have captured it until now, its strength will increase. Bear in mind that a well-trained pokemon is much stronger than the wild pokemon of the same type and level.

3. EV Training

It is of relative importance that we conduct EV training accordingly. We can only use 2 out of the 6 stats, so you’d better choose it properly.

4. Moveset

A moveset will always have a big portion on your pokemon’s strength, hence, you should really round it well and in line with its battle class.

5. Element type

An element type of a certain pokemon is important in deciding its moveset. It is also essential when you decide the strategy you want to use beacuse the bonus effects when pairing (like a damage caused by a fire pokemon to a grass pokemon) will be doubled.

6. Level

A pokemon’s level will be the deciding point for its stat points. The higher the level, the stronger the pokemon is. But there are also instances when a pokemon goes rogue if its level is too high already.

7. Happiness

Just like humans, pokemons perform better when they are happy. The level of their happiness is one deciding factor of their behavior and battle style during fights. In some pokemons, their happiness are related to their evolutions as well as their ability to return.

8. Evolution

In some pokemons, they have the option to evolve and sometimes we control it on our own. Evolution may give your pokemon a big stat but it will limit your moveset. Hence, you really need to weigh between the evolution and the moveset you want.

9. Berries and item

Since a pokemon can only carry either one berry or one item, you must know and be wise in your decision as to what you want your pokemon to have. Just remember that a berry or an item can really make or break your pokemon fight.

8 Strong Pokemons Based On The Above Factors

Having said these factors and as a collector, when you have the strongest pokemon, you can be sure that you will not fall down easily compared to having those mediocre ones. There are a lot of powerful pokemons, but who is the strongest pokemon among them?

The most powerful pokemon may be hard to distinguish, but we have rounded up the top 8 for you to have the idea of their powers and attributes, as well as to why they are considered strong.
