My Top 10 Generation IV Pokémon

The Sinnoh Region

Generation IV has a variety of Pokémon that you we’ll surely loved and definitely not going to be bullied by other Pokémon of other generations. With the wide variety of Pokémon I can't surely say which one I liked the most that’s why this list always have a tied in each position. Almost all the Pokémon here in generation IV are equally strong and definitely lovable. So here is the list of my top Generation V Pokémon.

Glaceon and Leafeon

Sinnoh Eeveelution

What is Eeveelution you say? It is the term used to describe all the evolutions of Eevee. Eevee + Evolution = Eeveelution, get it?

After the release of Generation V Pokémon games, Pokémon Black and White and Pokémon Black Version 2 and White Version 2, I thought that these would be the last Eeveelution that we will see. And until Generation VI the new Eevelution was announced. But we are focus on the Ice and Grass type Eeveelution, Glaceon and Leafeon. We all know that there is always trick in evolving eevee. In Generation IV you need to be in a certain area near a mossy or icy rock to evolve eevee into Leafeon and Glaceon. Cool right? About these two dog-like creatures, it has a cool design concept. With Leafeon, a dog with a leafy tail and ears while with Glaceon, a dog with icicle tail and ears. Leafeon can be a decent bulky offensive pokémon while Glaceon is more of a powerful wall breaker having a high special attack stat.


The Poison Duo

A Poison/Fighting type Pokémon and a Poison/Dark type Pokémon, Toxicroak and Drapion is the two Poison type pokémon that I like the most in this generation. Toxicroak’s name is a pun on Toxic and “croak” the onomatopoeia for the sound a frog creates. Cool, right? Drapion’s name came from Dracula(maybe) because of its looks and Scorpion, thus Drapion. Toxicroak has a high Attack stat and can be good to your team because it is very bulky , while Drapion is a big offensive threat having a good Attack and Speed stat.


Is Luxray a Cat or a Dog?

Is it a Cat or a Dog?

Whether this Pokémon is a cat or a dog, Luxray is one of the good Electric type that has been introduced in this generation, appearance-wise and stat-wise. Luxray is has a decent bulk and a good coverage making it a force to be reckoned with. It has a high base Attack stat and has a variety of movepool to be chosen to. Although as a Shinx, you will find it difficult to use it at first having a low quality of moves and you will only learn a good move when it turned to level 13. Though it has a slow turning point I can assure you at level 30, Luxray is surely to be a good addition to your team.


The Almost Flying/Fighting Type Pokémon

Many wished(I think??) and hoped that Staraptor would be a Flying/Fighting type Pokémon. With its bulky look and big pecks, surely you will be scared and you will thought that this pokémon is always angry. It is a very big threat in every ones party. Having a high Attack and Speed stat plus its good movepool, surely Staraptor is another powerhouse pokémon in your team. They say that Staraptor is the Pokémon version of Angry Birds. Do you agree on this?


The Sinnoh Starters Final Evolution

Every Pokémon addict is waiting to see what the final evolution of the starter will look like. In this Generation, a Turtle, a Monkey and a Penguin are the starter Pokémon. As they evolve they become more awesome and they look stronger than any other starter(I think?).

Torterra, being a Continent Pokémon, is like a huge turtle that has an island on its back. It is probably based on the Black Tortoise in Asian Mythologies. Stat-wise, Torterra has a high Attack and Defense stat but is lacking in Speed. It is a great offensive tanker for your team.

Infernape, the Flame Pokémon, looks like the Monkey King or Son Goku in the Japanese Interpretation of Sun Wukong in the Chinese Epic of the Journey to the West. Infernape is well –balanced Pokémon based on its stats, making it a great offensive player for your team.

Empoleon, the Emperor Pokémon, is a butler-like Penguin(ormaybe a penguin-like Butler, either of the two, I think?). It is said to based on an Emperor Penguin and Royal Penguin, with its trident-like headgear based on Poseidon’s trident. Unlike the other two, Empoleon has a high Special attack and Special Defense, with the other stats also well-balanced. Having a high Special Attack and Special Defense, Empoleon can become a huge thorn on your opponent’s side.

Electivire and Magmortar
Electivire and Magmortar

Flame and Thunder

Magmar’s and Electabuzz’s evolution, Magmortar and Electivire are two awesome Pokémon.

Magmortar, the Blast Pokémon, has two cannon-like hands, thus the name Blast Pokémon. It is the buffed-version of its pre-evolution. With its high Special Attack stat and somewhat well-balanced stats, I can say Magmortar is a good Fire-type for your party. But be aware that it has a law Defense stat so, some Physical Attack move can overwhelm this Pokémon.

Electivire, the Thunderbolt Pokémon, is an ape-like creature with its furry features, and others. It is somewhat a hairy version of its pre-evolution, Electabuzz. Stat-wise, it is same as Magmortar having a low defense stat. The difference is that Electivire has a high Attack stat and the others are well balanced. It has an amazing coverage, allowing almost all Pokémon to be hit with a Super Effective moves. It is a physical attacker not to be abandoned in your PC.


The Shark-like Dragon or the Dragon-like Shark?

The Mach Pokémon, Garchomp is a shark-like dragon or maybe a dragon-like shark Pokémon, either of the two, I think. But nonetheless, this Pokémon is not to be underestimated, it has an excellent Attack and Speed stat. This stat helps it to be a frightening offensive Pokémon. It can easily sweep its opponent having a high Speed and Attack stat. But with its typing, the resistance to Water and Grass type has been removed and Ice types become deadlier than before. And with the introduction of Mega Evolution in Pokémon X and Y, Garchomp’s Mega Evolution is one of the coolest Mega Evolutions introduced.

Dialga and Palkia
Dialga and Palkia

God of Time and Space

Dialga and Palkia are the Version Mascot for Pokémon Diamond and Pokémon Pearl, respectively.

Dialga, the Temporal Pokémon, is said to be Pokéverse God of Time. It has design that reminiscent to a clock hands(Time). Due to its typing, Dialga is the only Dragon type Pokémon that is not weak to Dragon and Ice type moves. It has a well-distributed stats allowing to fit in any teams. It is also a great offensive pokémon due to its high Attack and Special Attack stat. It also has a high Defense thus making it also a good tanker. Over-all it is definitely a good addition to your team.

Palkia, the Spatial Pokémon, is said to be the Pokéverse God of Space. Palkia is also a versatile Pokémon like Dialga. It is said to be incredibly dangerous due to its high stats, Attack, Special Attack and Speed. It can crush even those top tier Pokémon so don’t forget to add this on your team.


The "God" of Pokeverse

Arceus, the Alpha Pokémon, is said to be the creator of Sinnoh region and probably all the Pokéverse, thus being the God of Pokéverse. It is a Normal type Pokémon. But due to its ability, Multitype, it changes its typing while holding a certain Plate. Stat-wise, it is unquestionably the strongest Pokémon, being the “God” of Pokéverse. Its stat is unparalleled. In Smogon, it is said to be an Extreme Killer. Due to the fact that it is the Creator of Pokéverse, no other Pokémon is stronger than Arceus(I think). But yeah I only put it on second because I have two more favorite Pokémon than Arceus. I am so sorry Arceus.


The Epitome of Darkness and A Fighter Dog-Human Pokémon

I know that these two are not equal nor at the same page with each other. And I think that the one is stronger than the other one. But I like this two very much that I put them at the top of this list. So please no violent reaction, ok?

Darkrai, the Pitch-Black Pokémon, is a member of Lunar Duo with Cresselia. It is also said to be the Pokémonification (personification) of Nightmares. Some other sites call it the Freddy Kreuger of Pokémon, Stat-wise, Darkrai is very fast due to its high speed stat. It is also one of the most potent sweeper of all Pokémon having a high special attack stat. The only flaw for Darkrai is its average Defense stat that can be very deadly for its weaknesses.

Lucario, the Aura Pokémon, is one of the most loved Pokémon. It is probably based on the Egyptian God of Death, the Anubis. They are both based on Jackals, a kind of dog. Lucario is said to be one of the most threatening Pokémon overall. Though there are said to be other Pokémon stronger than Lucario, still it is one of the deadliest sweeper. Also, with the introduction of Mega Evolution, Mega Lucario became more awesome, design-wise and stat-wise. Having it mega evolved, it is definitely of the most threatening Pokémon in the game.

Which of these Pokémon is the strongest?

  • Glaceon
  • Leafeon
  • Toxicroak
  • Drapion
  • Luxray
  • Staraptor
  • Torterra
  • Infernape
  • Empoleon
  • Electivire
  • Magmortar
  • Garchomp
  • Dialga
  • Palkia
  • Arceus
  • Darkrai
  • Lucario
  • None of these (Comment your answers. thanks)

Luxray is either a Lynx or a Lion, from what I've heard. As far as strongest Pokemon go, it's definitely Arceus, with the third highest stat total to date.

I think that Weavile was one of the strongest Gen IV Pokemon, and deserves a spot on this list, right alongside Fire/Thunder. Not only was it a continuation of Sneasel, but it is great in battle and has an over spectacular design.

Luxray is not a cat or dog,hes a lynx (i may have wrote it wrong)

I may be a bit biased saying this (due to it being my favorite pokemon) but I think salemence is the strongest pokemon. This is Mainly because it is flying/dragon type. Also the fact that it has 135 base attack, 110 base special attack, and 100 base speed. also that it's mega evoltion looks like it could be caption america's fighter jet.

This was very interesting information. I'm not a big Pokemon fan, but my son is, and I, myself just wrote an article on the Sinnoh Legends if you would like to read it and give your opinion.

P.S. - My son would like to know why Rayquaza wasn't on the list of the strongest to choose from. :)
