Pokemon: The 15 Strongest Legendary Pokemon, Ranked According To Their Stats

The likes of Charizard and Pikachu may lead the way when it comes to the series' most popular Pokemon, but, when instead measuring for the most powerful, they find themselves quite a way down the pecking order. It's one that's instead dominated by the series' many Legendary Pokemon, who more than live up to their title regards to power.

RELATED: Pokemon: The Easiest Legendaries To Catch With An Ultra Ball

First introduced in Pokemon Red & Blue, Legendary Pokemon are the cream of the crop. Granted, there are a handful of non-Legendary Pokemon who do get close, but, in a contest of pure stats, they just can't quite compete. Mega Evolutions and other non-permanent transformations aside, the strongest and most powerful Pokemon all typically fall under the "Legendary" label.

Updated August 4, 2021 by Tom Bowen: With Brilliant Diamond & Shining Pearl now just around the corner, many fans are speculating what changes are going to be made to the games' legendaries. The fourth generation of Pokemon games already features some of the best and strongest Legendary Pokemon in the series. Were Game Freak to give some of them Primal or Mega Evolution forms though, their fighting potential would skyrocket, likely bringing them on par with the very best legendaries that the franchise has to offer. For now, however, players will have to make do with their current base stat totals, which, it has to be said, are certainly not to be frowned upon.

15 Kyogre (670)

When it comes to special attack and defense, Kyogre is an absolute beast. To be more precise, it's a Primal Beast, and, as such, is able to transform into its primal form when holding a Blue Orb. This transformation increases its base stat total to a whopping 770, with its special attack and defense stats rising further to an impressive 180 and 160 respectively.

Sadly, Primal Kyogre can only be used by those who are playing Omega Ruby & Alpha Saphire, but, even its base form, Kyogre is able to pack quite the punch. It has a fantastic array of moves at its disposal, many of which benefit greatly from the Pokemon's Drizzle ability.

14 Groudon (670)

Much like Kyogre, Groudon is only able to transform into its primal form in the remakes of Pokemon Ruby & Sapphire. Again though, just like its partner in prime, it can still be incredibly effective even without the additional power that it gains while in its enhanced primal form.

Where Kyogre specializes in special attacks, Groudon is instead geared more towards physical moves. Attacks like Earthquake and Precipice Blades allow it to dish out some impressive damage, while its drought ability can at times makes it incredibly difficult to counter.

13 Palkia (680)

Palkia's dual-typing can at times be a bit of a double-edged sword, though it ranks among the very best in both the water and dragon-type categories. Its 680 stats are distributed fairly evenly, but it does lean a little more towards special attacks than it does physical ones.

This bodes well for Palkia owners, as it has access to some ridiculously powerful special attack-based moves. The pick of the bunch are probably Spacial Rend and Hydro Pump, but it can also dish out some decent rock and ground-type damage with moves like Power Gem and Earth Power too.

12 Dialga (680)

Much like its fellow gen 4 legendary, Dialga has been blessed with two types. As well as being a dragon-type Pokemon, it also has access to Steel-type moves and is once again among the very best in class for both types. If ever the Pokemon gets a Mega Evolution or a primal form like it did in Mystery Dungeon, it would be right up there with the very strongest Legendary Pokemon in the series.

RELATED: Classic Pokemon Tropes That Aren't Around Anymore

As with Palkia, Dialga favors special attack-based moves and has quite a few devastating ones in its locker. In particular, Roar of Time can be absolutely deadly when attacking weakness, as too can some of its learnable steel-type moves like Flash Cannon. With the Diamond & Pearl remakes now just around the corner, the future could be very bright for Dialga indeed.

11 Lugia (680)

Though not quite as popular as its fellow gen 2 mascot, Ho-Oh, Lugia is still an incredibly useful Pokemon to have on one's team; assuming, that is, that players can find one. It has access to some great psychic and flying-type moves and can also cover water and ice-type attacks if push really comes to shove.

Where Lugia really shines, however, is through its excellent defensive stats, with a significant proportion of the Pokemon's 680 base stat total being dedicated to physical and special defense. This pairs well with Lugia's hidden ability, Multiscale, which reduces the damage it takes by 50% when the Pokemon is attacked while at full health.

10 Giratina (680)

Whether in its Origin or Altered form, Giratina boasts an impressive base stat total of 680. It's actually one of 16 Legendary Pokemon that does so, although it is arguably one of the more useful of the bunch thanks to its impressive versatility in battle.

While in its base form, the Pokemon specializes in defense and has a 120 stat for both the physical and special defense categories. When given a Griseous Orb to hold or while in the Distortion World, however, its attack and defensive stats are switched; with the latter dropping down to 100 in exchange for some additional firepower.

9 Ho-Oh (680)

Like many of the series' earlier Legendary Pokemon, Ho-Oh rocks a base stat total of 680. It excels in the special defense department, although also has decent numbers in the attack and special attack categories as well. It shares its design with a real-world mythical creature too, which is a pretty cool – albeit, somewhat irrelevant – touch.

Ho-Oh holds the distinction of being the very first Legendary Pokemon to appear in the anime and is said to be the guardian of the skies and the master of the three Legendary Beasts. Many consider it to be the polar opposite of Lugia; which also boasts a base stat total of 680 but is instead the guardian of the seas and the master of the three Legendary Birds.

8 Mewtwo (680)

Together with Rayquaza, Mewtwo is considered to be the most powerful Pokemon obtainable in the series, at least when it comes to Mega Evolutions, anyway. By default, they each have base stat totals of 680, but in their powered-up forms, this rises to an impressive 780.

RELATED: Pokémon: Facts You Didn’t Know About Mewtwo

Although many other Pokemon have the ability to Mega Evolve and also benefit from the same 100 stat point bonus after doing so, Mewtwo and Rayquaza are tied when it comes to the strongest Pokemon that have access to Mega Evolution. The former is also one of only two Pokemon with two distinct Mega Evolution forms; the other one being Charizard.

7 Rayquaza (680)

Rayquaza might not be the fastest Pokemon out there, but its 150 physical and special attack stats are right up there with the very best. They account for almost half of the Pokemon's 680 base stat total; which rises to an eye-watering 780 when the Pokemon Mega Evolves.

Rayquaza is somewhat special in this regard as it is the only Pokemon to date that is able to Mega Evolve without the use of an item. Instead, the Pokemon need only use the move Dragon Ascent to transform into its Mega form. This is because Rayquaza is said to have eaten numerous meteorites and it is from these that it is able to draw the power needed for the transformation.

6 Eternatus (690)

First introduced in Pokemon Sword & Shield, Eternatus is an incredibly powerful Pokemon with a base stat total of 690. It may not be the strongest in this regard, but it's perhaps worth noting that there is only one other Pokemon that can reach a higher total without the use of an item or a fusion technique. Besides, this is only the tip of the iceberg.

At the games' climax, players square off against Eternamax Eternatus, which is by far the strongest Pokemon to have ever appeared in the series. Its base stat total of 1,125 makes it almost twice as powerful as the nearest contender, although, sadly, there is no legitimate way for players to gain access to this form. At least not yet, anyway.

5 Kyurem (700)

The innovative fusion mechanic introduced in the fifth generation of Pokemon games is one that has not been utilized nearly as much as it should have been in subsequent games. It did, however, lead to the introduction of Black Kyurem and White Kyurem.

In its base form, Kyurem is slightly weaker than some of the series' other Legendary Pokemon owing to its base stat total of 660. When fused together with either Zekrom or Reshiram though, this total rises to 700, making Black and White Kyurem the strongest Pokemon ever at the time of their inception. Being able to choose between a physical and special attacker is also a nice touch and something that players would see again in future generations.

4 Zygarde (708)

Upon its introduction in Pokemon X & Y, Zygarde was really wasn't anything to write home about. With Sun & Moon came the addition of the Pokemon's Complete form, however, and it was catapulted up the pecking order of the series' most powerful Pokemon of all time.

RELATED: Pokemon: Every Generation's Starter Trio, Ranked

Only three Pokemon can better its 708 base stat total, although its high numbers are perhaps a little misleading. Complete Forme Zygarde is actually slower than the 50% Forme and has only a plus ten increase to its special attack stat to show for it. Well, that and a huge increase to its HP, which accounts for the entirety of its stat boost across forms.

3 Zacian (720)

In its Hero of Many Battles form, Zacian is actually a little weaker than quite a few of its Legendary peers. While holding a Rusted Sword though, its base stat total is boosted by 50 points, bringing it up to an impressive 720. In this form, it finds itself locked in a three-way tie for the title of the series' most powerful Pokemon.

The bulk of this boost goes into its physical attack stat, which jumps from an already impressive 130 to a monstrous 170. Its speed also rises to 148, making it one of the fastest Pokemon around as well as one of the most powerful. Its defensive stats aren't too bad either, although its HP remains a little on the low side at just 92.

2 Zamazenta (720)

Much like Zacian, Zamazenta starts life with a base stat total of 670 which can be increased to 720 with the aid of a held item. Rather than a Rusted Sword, however, Zamazenta instead needs to be given a Rusted Shield which will lead to the Pokemon transforming into its Crowned Shield form.

Unlike its fellow Sword & Shield mascot, the stat bonuses gained from the transformation are a bit more balanced. Both its physical and special defense stats each increase by 30, although this does come at a cost. Rather than increasing by ten, its speed stat instead decreases; dropping from 138 to 128 while it's holding the Rusted Shield.

1 Arceus (720)

Not only is Arceus stronger than the overwhelming majority of other Pokemon, but the genderless God Pokemon also has the beating of all but six of their Mega Evolution forms. Assuming the Pokemon gets a Mega Evolution of its own in the Diamond & Pearl remakes later this year, it will become the outright strongest obtainable Pokemon by a considerable margin.

Arceus is a somewhat unique Pokemon in that it is able to change its elemental type through the use of special plates and this makes it incredibly versatile in battle. Its 720 base stat total is also perfectly distributed between the six stat categories, so the Pokemon has no major weaknesses either. This does mean that it can sometimes lack the firepower needed to break down tankier foes though. Nonetheless, when it comes to raw stats, no Pokemon boasts more than Arceus.

Pok�mon Go Legendary Pok�mon: List of all currently and previously available Legendary Pok�mon

Pokémon Go Legendary Pokémon had been hotly anticipated for some time, eventually arriving a full one year after the game released.

How to catch Legendaries and how to unlock Legendary Raids in Pokémon Go

Ninatic finally unlocked Legendary Pokémon in Pokémon Go following Pokémon Go Fest. Summer 2017 saw Legendary birds Moltres, Articuno and Moltres come and go, with Legendary beasts Raikou, Entei, Suicune here for Autumn - and the start of a Gen 3 Legendary rollout over the winter, starting with Groudon.

Though they are similar to standard Raid Battles in many ways, there are several differences in both their appearance and capture:

  • Legendaries are only be available via Legendary Raids, the highest difficulty of Raid Battle - although they're now beginning to reappear as Research Breakthrough Rewards for completing Field Research Quests, too.
  • While regular Raids appear at random, Legendary Raids appear for set periods of time. For example, in Autumn 2017, the Legendary beasts Raikou, Entei and Suicune rotated between regions each month. Before that, Legendary Birds debuted for one week at a time over summer 2017. You can read the current active Legendaries later in the article.
  • EX Raid Battles see certain elusive Legendaries, such as Mewtwo, require an EX Raid Pass invite before you can participate. To get an invite, you must beat a Raid Boss at that Gym before the EX Raid appears, as well as several other requirements discussed in our Raids article.
mewtwo
  • Legendary Raid Pokémon have the highest CP of any Raid creature. For example, Articuno was at 37,603, Moltres at 41,953, Zapdos at 42,691, Lugia at 42,753 and MewTwo at a staggering 49,430.
  • Once the battle is over, the Legendary still must be captured like any other Raid, though the capture rate is lower.
  • Once you have captured the Legendary, you cannot use it to defend Gyms - but they can of course attack with them in subsequent Raids.
  • The Buddy Distance for Legendaries is 20km per one Candy - so we'd recommend using Rare Candy rewards from Raid battles as a way to easily power them up.

How to capture Legendary Pokémon

Like other Raid encounters, once a Legendary's defeated you have to then catch it. This is difficult seeing as, according to research available from Pokémon Go community The Silph Road, your chances are pretty slim.

  • The base catch rate for Legendary Pokémon, aside from Mewtwo, is currently 3% - meaning with no modifiers of any kind, throwing the ball straight, not using any berries and not even getting a "Nice" throw, you have a 1 in 33 chance of catching the Pokémon - not great odds.
  • There are several ways of increasing your chances - Golden Razz Berries and Curveballs (when you spin the PokéBall before releasing your throw) drastically increase your chances, whilst Nice, Great, and Excellent throws increase those chances further respectively, and there's also a small bonus for having a Bronze, Silver, or Gold Medal (see more in our guide to Pokémon Go Catch Bonuses).
  • A Golden Razz Berry, Curveball, and Excellent throw, with a Gold medal for that Legendary's Type, give you a 24% chance of catching the Legendary - meaning one in roughly four throws like this will catch it, which is much better considering the roughly 5-13 balls that will be available!
  • Mewtwo's base catch rate is currently a 6% chance - meaning it's considerably easier to catch than the other legendaries, and actually easier than some Tier 4 Raid bosses, too!

If that's not clear enough, here's a handy image, created by reddit user and Silph Road member Epimetheos:

Legendary_Catch_Rates

With the above in mind, what can you do to increase your chances of catching Legendary Pokémon? It's recommended you:

  • Attempt Curved and Nice, Great or Excellent throws (landing the ball in the centre of the circle - the smaller the better)
  • Using a Golden Razz Berry between every catch attempt
  • Level up as many relevant Catch Bonus medals as possible to Gold by catching wild creatures of the same Type
  • As well as increasing the chances of individual throws, you want to have as many attempts as possible by earning more Premier Balls for the catch phase. One way is to target a Gym controlled by your team (which can be somewhat out of your control), and another is dealing a high amount of damage. It's worth noting your contribution is wiped out when your team faints, so you want to keep them alive for the entire fight, and one way of doing that is bring high defense tank creatures (Snorlax and Blissey) so you can absorb a lot of damage.
  • Finally, you want to land as many Premier Balls you can. Legendaries and other high level Raid creatures attack very regularly, and since they are immune during these attacks, you can waste a lot of opportunities simply trying to land a single ball. While these attacks are random, there is a way to avoid them; by observing these attacks, and throwing the ball before the animation ends, the ball will land in the vulnerable window between attacks. This Silph Road thread discusses the practice in detail, as well as the following video from Mesa:

The history of Legendaries in Pokémon Go

Before we even heard their presence was confirmed in the big Gym rework, we already knew the various Legendaries were in the game.

That's thanks to some good old-fashioned datamining. NesstendoYT on YouTube was one major player, who dug through the game's files to discover that the above first generation Legendary Pokémon are indeed listed in the game:

Their absence in the game led to plenty of speculation, particularly with one of the strongest and most famous Legendary Pokémon - Mewtwo - being the focus of one of the game's first trailers, showing crowds of people teaming up to fight it, whittling down its health as a timer ticks down before capturing the Pokémon in a packed Times Square, suggesting that Mewtwo and other Legendaries could be unlocked through public events rather than random encounters.

That's since been confirmed of course - but it's interesting Mewtwo pops up again at the end of the trailer... maybe that's the Legendary Raid that needs to be tackled in Chicago?

As for Gen 2's Raikou, Entei, Suicune, Lugia, Ho-oh and Celebi, they've appeared in datamining efforts, too, with their stats showing up alongside the likes of the birds, Mew and Mewtwo.

These stats reveal them to be among the best Pokémon in our Pokémon Go tier list, with Mewtwo and Ho-Oh having some of the highest base attacks in the game, more so than existing creatures Alakazam and Dragonite.

The datamine also revealed that these creatures have no capture rate at all, so perhaps that lends itself to the theory that Legendaries will automatically be caught after defeating them in a Legendary Raid?


The Season of Mischief is here! Current events include the Season 9 of Go Battle League, the addition of Raid Achievements, the Misunderstood Mischief research quest and the new Finding Your Voice Meloetta research. Shiny Ditto can also now be found in the wild and this tricky Pokémon is now appearing as new creatures! The Secrets of the Jungle event is here - hailing the return of Genesect and Jessie and James, along with the new Search for Zarude research quest! Meanwhile, the last major update saw a level cap increase - including the addition of XL Candy, boosts to some XP sources and the addition of Platinum Medals. Inkay and Malamar are now in Pokémon Go!


We knew for some time that Legendaries were coming, but what's the story, and how did we get to this point?

When did we think Legendaries were coming? The Legendary teases:

In an interview with Wired Germany (via Den of Geek, Niantic CEO John Hanke said "with certainty that we will see [legendaries] more this year" - so that at least narrowed it down to 2017!

The biggest suggestion to date came from a five word acceptance speech from Niantic during the 21st Annual Webby Awards: "This summer will be legendary", a heavy hint we were set to see something soon:

That seemed to have been corroborated by the latest trickle of information, where Niantic suggested that "Legendary Pokémon and battles between players" were set to arrive some time this summer.

Whether this was going to happen at the same time as the implementation of the new Raids feature or a little while after was unknown, although things certainly did at least appear to be tying together quite nicely at that point.

The first Legendary Pokémon spotted in Pokémon Go - but how did it appear?

Back in early August of 2016, before any of this official news was even close to being announced, a player topped a Gym in Ohio with an Articuno, which is said to be the first Legendary appearance in the game. Multiple players verified the sighting, but how the player got the creature is in question. Amazingly, the owner claimed she received the Pokémon as part of an apology from developer Niantic after contacting them via email about an issue.

Other possibilities could be an exploit that has edited the creature's data to appear in the game, an error that has seen one spawn accidentally, or a glitch turn another Pokemon into the famed Legendary, similar to a case reported by a user who had their wild Caterpie transform into a Charizard once in their possession.

What else we know about Legendary Pokémon in Pokémon Go

Finally, it's also worth pointing out - for history's sake, at the very least - that all this time there's been a hunt of Legendary Pokémon in plain sight, with users who have progressed to level 5 and interacted with a gym find themselves invited to one of three teams - Team Instinct, Team Mystic, or Team Valor - which are shown to be tied to Zapdos, Articuno and Moltres respectively. Could participating in teams play a part in how you unlock these particular Pokémon? It could still be the case that those Legendary Birds are tied to special Team-specific Raids at some point down the line.

The addition of Pokémon Go's Buddy system also paves the way for players to earn Candy and power up rare creatures without the need to catch any more - perfect for ultra rare Pokémon such as Legendaries. Meanwhile, the eventual arrival of Ditto - which was just as elusive as the Legendaries for sometime - is at least a sign that Niantic have been slowly working their way towards introducing all of the game's missing Pokémon.

In the meantime, an upcoming update will introduce Pokémon trading to help flesh out the gaps in your Pokédex, and our Pokémon Go guide, tips and tricks page to pick up a few pointers you might not know.

Pokemon Go legendaries: Every legendary Pokemon and how to catch them

There aren't many Pokemon Go legendaries yet to be added to the game at this point. There are a couple from Gen 5, plus all of the future Pokemon Go generations, but we're more than halfway through the complete set. We're expecting Keldeo and Meloetta to be released next (although these are technically Mythical Pokemon - shhhh!) because they're the remaining ones from Gen 5, though Niantic hasn't shed any light on the next legendaries yet. Anyhow, without further ado, here are all of the Pokemon Go legendaries in the game right now and some tips for catching them.

Pokemon Go Articuno counters | Pokemon Go Cresselia counters | Pokemon Go Genesect counters

Special research legendary Pokemon: Mew, Celebi, Jirachi, and Meltan

Mew was the first legendary Pokemon available via special research, in a quest line called "A Mythical Discovery". This is the only way to obtain Mew, and you can read more on that with our how to catch Mew and Mewtwo in Pokemon Go guide.

Celebi is also now available through the "A Ripple In Time" special research quest. Just like Mew, you need to do a series of potentially lengthy tasks, which we've covered in detail here: how to catch Celebi in Pokemon Go.

You can get Jirachi too if you complete the special research called Pokemon Go A Thousand Year Slumber. First introduced during Pokemon Go Fest 2019, we've got a guide on how to complete all of the tasks.

Technically, Meltan and its evolution Melmetal are mythical Pokemon instead of legendaries, but for the purposes of this guide, they count as legendaries. We've covered how to catch Meltan in Pokemon Goand Pokemon Let's Go but the basic gist of things is that you either need to transfer a Pokemon from the former to the latter, to receive Meltan in the former, or complete the special research called "Let's GO, Meltan.

If you participated in the Pokemon Go A Drive To Investigate special research, this is how you can obtain Genesect. Unfortunately, the ticket isn't available any longer, but you can still complete the objectives if you acquired it before.

The same goes for the Pokemon Go A Colossal Discovery special research. This took place in October of last year and was the only method to acquire Regigigas, but if you haven't completed it yet, the objectives will still be in your special research to finish off.

Advice for catching Pokemon Go Legendaries

- It’s disappointing but don’t expect to catch on your first Raid. The catch rates differ per Legendary but the odds are not high.

- Increase your odds with curveballs and Golden Razz Berries but only do curveballs if you are definitely sure you can hit it. Don’t waste Premier Balls unnecessarily because you have a limited stock.

- Throw your Premier Ball after a Legendary has just done its attack move to make sure they don’t just flick your Premier Ball away.

- If you're lucky enough to get a shiny Legendary after a raid, it's an insta-catch! So use a Pinap Berry and as long as you don't miss with every ball, you'll definitely catch it.

- The faster you defeat the legendary, the more Premier Balls you'll have to attempt the catch with. So enlist as many fellow trainers as possible and get the right counters for that legendary in your party!

- If you are having trouble with Raid numbers, try signing up for your local Discord or Facebook Pokemon Go community. There’ll be plenty of people in the same situation and organising Raid groups. 

Good luck, trainer!
