Who are the strongest Pokemon ever?
Until recently, it was hard to create a definitive Strongest Pokemon List because not all of the known Pokemon were available in any one game or even generation of games.
For that reason, we've never really been able to pit the best of the best and strongest of strong against each other to see who came out on top.
Pokemon's catch phrase, "Gotta catch 'em all" is actually incredibly hard to do and takes serious time and and equal amount of tech savvy to migrate Pokemon from old games & systems to newer, more advanced consoles & handhelds like the Nintendo Switch.
But NOW, Pokemon Home and Pokemon Sword & Shield's downloadable content — Isle of Armor and The Crown Tundra — introduced the National Dex & the ability to collect most of the known Pokemon up through Generation 8 in one place.
It still takes some insane will power, grinding & searching to "catch 'em all", but it's completely worth it if you're a Poke-maniac hell-bent on assembling the strongest team!
Here are the top 50 strongest Pokemon through Gen 8 (including legendaries, mythicals and UBs) in alphabetical order:
Calyrex (due to its Ice Rider and Shadow Rider forms)
Darmanitan (due to its Galar form)
Shaymin (due to its Sky form)
