Pokemon GO! has only been out for a few days, but people are already accidentally discovering dead bodies, making police officers remind us to look both ways before crossing the street, and socializing near that one dumpster a bunch of people activated lure next to. Why are we so excited over this? All our lives, we’ve been catching the most powerful Pokemon and battling others to advance, but it was only within a game. Now, more or less, the Pokemon adventure is actually real.
In a sense, we suppose the game developers should be awarded with a Nobel prize for managing something parents and educational systems have miserably failed at – convince people to go outside and exercise. Of course, this is pretty secondary. The real star here is the Pokedex and the names we can fill it up with. In order to know which Pokemon is worth jumping in a lake for, here are the 10 Most Powerful Pokemon for Pokemon Go.
Catching Mewtwo was the equivalent of sticking your country’s flag in the snow covering the peak of the Everest. Once this artificially created Pokemon joined your company, it was impossible not to feel like you could conquer the world. Needless to say, Mewtwo is already famous for its reputation as one of the most powerful Pokemon. It’s not difficult to believe how dedicated people would be to catching one in Pokemon GO!
You know a Pokemon means business when it’s one of the choices used by the boss of the first generation game. Looking like a combination between a pterodactyl and a sturdy dinosaur, this Pokemon is almost impossible to beat without a dragon-type. In fact, most of your chances lie in endlessly spamming it with status attacks. Hopefully Pokemon GO! made it easier to catch one.
Don’t let this adorable looking creature fool you. Those who are familiar with the world of Pokemon know just what kind of mighty power lies within this small figure. Being one of the most powerful Pokemon makes it rarer to find, which is why we have yet to hear of any sightings and successful catches.
As a dragon-type Pokemon, the best way to counter a meeting with this Pokemon is by hurling out another dragon-type. Even then, trying to break through Dragonite’s defenses can prove to be a pretty daunting task. Aside from having great defense, it can also bite back at almost every Pokemon type thanks to its ability to learn a diverse set of elemental moves.
A majestic bird whose wings get engulfed in slow-burning flames, Moltres is a fantastic alternative for teams that lack fire-type Pokemon or those that didn’t have Charizard included as a starter. Being able to combine fire-type moves with the agility and speed of flying-types, Moltres will surely make a fantastic addition to your Pokemon GO! Pokedex as well.
One of the legendary Pokemon of Kanto, Zapdos is considered to be the most powerful of electric types. This is something that can we can definitely understand, mostly because it creates a combo that seems ideal against rock-types. Even though they can resist electricity, they have nothing on Zapdos’ flying-type moves.
Another legendary Pokemon residing in the region of Kanto, Articuno is known for its tendency to isolate itself and flee from one mountain to another to avoid battles. Able to put forth a blizzard with the mere flap of its wings, it’s surely one of the most powerful Pokemon, as well as one of the rarest. Let’s just hope it won’t take any actual mountain climbing to catch one.
Charizard is the last stage of evolution for the cute, little Charmander that you are provided as an option at the start of the game. Funnily enough, we get the same choice in Pokemon GO! too so you may opt to start your adventure with this fire-type fellow and watch it grow into this impressive scorching disaster.
Also known as the Pokemon that tortures us the most by being a highly powerful evolution to the ever so infamously useless Magikarp, Gyaradoros is a dragon-like creature with all the stats of the most powerful Pokemon. Not only is it able to unleash mighty water-type attacks, but it’s also one of the few in the family that can also take up fire-type and electric-type moves.
Whoever thought a handful of eggs couldn’t evolve into one of the most powerful Pokemon out there was wrong. Albeit, it’s an evolved version, but as far as Pokemon GO! is concerned, the really fun part is catching some Exeggcutes while you’re casually doing some grocery shopping. It happened!
