Choosing the best Pokémon can be as difficult as the fans want it to be. Despite having fixed sets of stats like speed, HP, experience points, signature moves or even mastering the knowledge of the hidden EVs, it can eventually boil down to singular opinions.
It’s the topic of many Internet forum junkies and Pokémon fanboys. I don’t know if Nintendo expected Pokémon to ever become so popular, almost like a cult. Or maybe they did? Anyway, when comparisons happen, there’s bound to be some virtual blood spilt over flame wars across the world, especially if it’s over deciding the best Pokémon. I’d say the best one is the oldest one, followed closely by my personal favorite.
Reason: Can change into any type by holding plates. Only Pokémon to learn Judgment. Stat total of 720.
Reason: One of the fastest Pokémon, which coupled with its signature move Psystrike, makes it almost unbeatable. Stat total of 680.

- Find out Pokémon moves, and accordingly team them up, depending on species and breeding.
- You can always train a Pokémon to learn one move that can affect an opposing Pokémon who is your anti. Like you can make a water Pokémon learn a bug move to help it combat grass-type Pokémon.
- Always keep the Effort Value (EVs) in mind. Have your Pokémon battle and win against its anti Pokémon so that it gains some EV against it.
