Pokemon, Ranked

Screw 'gotta catch em all'—some Pokemon are clearly better than others, and I ain't boutta carry around no lame-ass pocket monster around with me. You know?

The things that make a Pokemon superior aren't always cut and dry, though. Sometimes, it's the design. Sometimes it's the Pokemon's combat usefulness. And sometimes, the Pokemon is just too silly or ridiculous not to love.

Don't worry. We're experts. These are the best 50 Pokemon, ranked from worst (50) to best (1).
