In the world of Pokémon, it may be hard to believe and too sharp a truth to accept, but these pocket monsters are not created equal. Some are – meh – just usual, while others are “Legendary.” You want to come across with the latter most of the time.
Unlike Pokémons like Pikachus, which are found almost everywhere, Legendary Pokémons refer to those rare and powerful monsters that are closely related to local lore surrounding the creation or destruction of a particular region. Also, Legendaries can’t evolve.
Are you wondering who the strongest Legendary Pokémons are? We have the list right here!
Kicking off this list is Giratina, a dual-type Ghost/Dragon Legendary Pokémon introduced initially in Generation IV. Together with Dialga and Palkia, it is part of the Pokémon of Myth, representing antimatter. Plus, it is also the game mascot of Pokémon Platinum, seen in its Origin Forme, which is its second form. But take note that, like any other Legendary Pokémon, it shall not and does not evolve.
That’s the name? Yes, that’s the name. Ho-oh is a Fire/Flying type Legendary first introduced in Generation II. It is also the Trio Master of the Legendary Beasts and known as the Guardian of the skies.
You will see that this Legendary Bird Pokémon is based on the phoenix, making it a vastly powerful Fire/Flying type of Pokémon. It has the ability to revive any Pokémon, is wondrously fast, and inflicts damage by releasing its devastating Fire-Type attack known as Sacred Ash. It also holds an item called Sacred Ash, which is compared to a Pokémon Center, except that it is portable.
Could you even believe that Mewtwo from Pokémon’s Generation I is also among the strongest? Yes, it is.
Mewtwo is a Psychic-type Legendary Pokémon. But, it is considered an artificial Pokémon, too. It is a bipedal, humanoid Pokémon with feline features. Colored gray with a noticeably long and purple tail, Mewtwo has a head where two short and blunt horns are seen on top.
It also has purple-colored eyes. A tube extends from the back of its skull to the top portion of its spine, bypassing its neck. Its chest and shoulders are defined. Also, on each of its hands and feet are three digits, and spherical tips. It also has a thick tail that gradually thins to a small bulb.
Rayquaza is Legendary – and famous, too! It is a dual-type Dragon/Flying Legendary Pokémon from Generation III. Rayquaza is also the game mascot of Pokémon Emerald, appearing in the game’s box art. Along with Groudon and Kyogre, it is also one of the super-ancient Pokémon. Fans often referred to it as the Legendary category’s Trio Master.
The name says it all. Eternatus… eternity? You get the picture of why it is listed here as one of the strongest Legendaries.
Eternatus is a dual-type Poison/Dragon Legendary Pokémon fans first saw in Generation VIII. Of course, it does not evolve, as with any other Legendary, but it has a powered-up form known as Eternamax Eternatus. Also, before Generation IX, Eternatus was briefly seen using its signature move, the Eternabeam.
5. Black And White Kyurem
Kyurem is also another strong Legendary Pokémon. It is a dual-type Dragon/Ice Legendary Pokémon first seen in Generation V.
It has two alternate forms, the White Kyurem and the Black Kyurem. These Kyurems are formed by combining with Reshiram and Zekrom (also Pokémons), respectively.
4. Crowned Shield Zamazenta
Zamazenta is Generation VIII’s Fighting-type Legendary Pokémon. As a Legendary, it does not evolve, but it has a second form. The original form will become the dual-type Fighting/Steel Pokémon called Crowned Shield Zamazenta.
Now Crowned Shield is Zamazenta’s true form. According to legends, it was known as such because of its ability to deflect all types of attacks.
3. Crowned Sword Zacian
If there’s a Crowned Shield, there has to be a Crowned Sword. Did it ever come to you? Anyway, meanwhile, Zacian is a Fairy-type Legendary Pokémon fans first saw in Generation VIII. It does not evolve, but it has a second form. Its original form, Hero of Many Battles, will turn into the dual-type Fairy/Steel Crowned Sword.
Crowned Sword, Zacian’s true form, is the one on this list of the strongest Legendaries. Legends have it that Zacian was touted as the Fairy King’s Sword, as it can cut down anything in a single strike, impressing the other characters in the series.
2. The Complete Forme Of Zygarde
Zygarde is a dual-type Dragon/Ground Legendary Pokémon introduced in the franchise’s Generation VI. Being Legendary, Zygarde does not evolve but has three forms: Zygarde 10% Forme, Zygarde 50% Forme, and Zygarde Complete Forme. It is the Zygarde Complete Forme that is listed as one of the strongest here.
Zygarde’s Complete Forme is formed when all 100 percent of its Cells and Cores unite. This form of this Pokémon contains distinct Cores for each of its wings and tail. Then, each Core also can decide and act independently among the others. Interesting.
1. The Strongest: Arceus
Drum roll… the strongest of the bunch is a Pokémon named Arceus. Now Arceus is a Normal-type Mythical Pokémon that was introduced in Generation IV. Mythical Pokémon are those that are rarely seen by anybody.
Arceus is also touted as a “God” in the Pokémon world. Known as the creator of the Pokémon world, it also can create Legendary Pokémons. It is believed that it designed Palkia, Dialga, and Giratina, as well as the lake guardians in Pokémon, namely Azelf, Uxie, and Mesprit.
Those are some of the strongest Legendaries in the Pokémon universe. That list shall guide you when you need to catch and train these Pokémons in your favorite games or when you need to see them while watching the shows.
