Frequently Asked Questions

What is the strongest Pokémon?

Strength in Pokémon can be measured by total base stats, and among the highest are Mega Mewtwo X and Mega Mewtwo Y, both forms of Mewtwo when holding a Mewtwonite X or Mewtwonite Y.

Arceus also shares a top spot due to its high base stats across the board and its Multitype ability. Yet, in different contexts, other Pokémon might be considered stronger based on their moveset, typing, or battle strategy.

What is the fastest Pokémon?

Deoxys, in its Speed Forme, has the highest base speed stat of any Pokémon, making it incredibly fast in battle. However, it’s important to note that speed can be influenced by moves, abilities, and items, so the fastest Pokémon can vary under different battle conditions.

What is the rarest Pokémon?

The title of the rarest Pokémon in the games has often been attributed to event-exclusive Pokémon, such as Mew, due to their limited availability.

Another contender for rarity is Mythical Pokémon like Celebi, Jirachi, and, more recently, Diancie, which are typically distributed during special events and cannot be obtained through regular gameplay.

What were the first Pokémon games?

The first Pokémon games were “Pokémon Red” and “Pokémon Green,” released in Japan in 1996. Internationally, “Pokémon Red” and “Pokémon Blue” were the initial releases, with “Blue” being an enhanced version of “Green.”

These games laid the foundation for the series and were the first to introduce us to the region of Kanto and the original 151 Pokémon.

No matter what questions you ask, remember to start the conversation with an open mind and a willingness to learn (or, in this case, to be educated on Pokémon). And who knows, after asking these questions and listening to the answers, you might just find yourself becoming a fan, too!
