#5: “Gardevoir”

This rather human-in-appearance Pokemon is the final evolution of Ralts. What started off as small and shy bloomed into something graceful and elegant. But that’s not where its appeal ends, as its pool of powerful Psychic-type moves can certainly dish out damage. Though they’re often believed to be strictly female, male Gardevoirs are equally as common. One of their more notable traits is that once a bond is formed, they will give their lives for their trainers without a second thought. So, if you’re looking for loyalty, then look no further than the Embrace Pokemon.

#4: “Metagross”

Continuing with the theme of unimpressive to just downright imposing, say hello to the Iron Leg Pokemon; Hoenn’s very own walking tank! Fans have granted this Pokemon the accolade of Pseudo-Legendary, and it’s not hard to see why. With the best of Steel and Psychic-type moves at its disposal as well as the intelligence of a supercomputer, Metagross is a titan no matter who it goes against! So, it’s not hard to figure out why it’s Champion Steven’s weapon of choice.

#3: “Salamence”

The dragons make a triumphant return with yet another Pseudo-Legendary. With insane attack power and the added use of Flying-Type moves, you have a slim of chance of victory if you ever comes across one of these bad boys, and wouldn’t you know it, it’s the trump card of Drake, the dragon expert of the Elite Four! What’s more, Salamence continues to appear throughout the pokemon series, used by powerful trainers such as Silver and the Pokemon hunter J. Needless to say, this dragon is more than deserving of its place on the list.

#2: “Blaziken”

Not since Charizard has the final form of a Fire-Type starter Pokemon been so well received! Sceptile and Swampert are certainly awesome in their own right, but Blaziken stands out as the most essential of the Gen 3 starters. Able to leap a 30-story building with one jump, with the most powerful fire and fighting type techniques at its disposal – including Blaze Kick, it’s very own unique move, Blaziken served as May’s adept fighter, giving her all the firepower she needed.

#1: “Rayquaza”

Was there even any doubt? The dragon to end all dragons and often considered the greatest of all legendaries, The Sky High Pokemon takes the crown as the third generation’s greatest. Living in the ozone layer for millions of years, it descended to Earth for one reason, and that was give both Groudon and Kyogre a colossal time out. First appearing in Destiny Deoxys, Rayquaza made its presence known by going toe-to-toe with two Deoxys. With unbelievable attack power and a move list that can decimate all but the absolute strongest, it’s the ultimate challenge, and prize, for any trainer!
