Find out which are the best competitive Pokémon in the seventh generation.
With the seventh generation we could see how once again we had two generations in the same consolewhile Pokémon Sun and Moon were characterized by evolving the concept of 3D in Pokémon to improve what was previously seen, which also came from the hand of a protagonist whose expressiveness ended up becoming an Internet meme.
However, it must be taken into account that, contrary to what would happen later, Alola had the Mega Evolution as a playable mechanic, whereas this allowed entire teams to run a Pokémon capable of using this power-up along with Primal Forms and the newly released Z-Moves, both of which had a devastating effectbut they could only be used once per combat.
These are the great Pokémon we had during the seventh generation
Given this, it should be noted that in the seventh generation we witnessed the rise of a legendary quartet, while Tapu Koko, Tapu Lele, Tapu Fini and, to a lesser extent, Tapu Bulu they became the best Pokémon, to the point of defining entire teams thanks to the Fields, which, ironically, were not released in this generation, but in the previous one.
However, the rule of not including legendary ones in the top causes them to be left out, so we can see below that species like Torkoal, Garchomp, Arcanine, Landorus, Thundurus, Solgaleo, Necrozma, Lunala, among many others, do not enter this top for very little (or for nothing if they are Legendaries). Therefore, we are going to talk about the top five alola pokemon then:
After Goodra has been absent from the top of the best Pokémon of the sixth generation, it is the turn to talk about kommo-othe pseudo-legendary of the seventh generation who had a little more luck than his older brother even with a unbeneficial combination of typessince, after all, its Dragon / Fighting causes this Pokémon to be weak x4 to the Fairy type, which was very present for the Tapu in the competitive one.
However, despite this he managed to prevail, thereby giving rise to the fact that although in the original Pokémon Sun and Moon he did not stand out too much, the arrival of the Ultra versions gave him a signature Z-Move that increased all of his stats, which came hand in hand with the ability to deal great damage. The potential of this Pokémon was so great that the disappearance of the Z Movements is followed by a new characteristic attack that replaced it. At the same time, this Pokémon has great coverages with Noxious Puya and Focus Radianceso the Fairies are not problematic.
When we made the top of the best Pokémon of the fifth generation we could see that Adding a Weather Ability to a Pokémon improves it completely, while in the seventh generation we could see how Pelipper shone with its own light far above its counterpart Torkoal, which received Drought in this case during the seventh generation. However, Pelipper even caused Politoed lower its usebecause it’s just better.
For starters, it can take advantage of Rain to use Gale, while also losing its Grass-type weakness. However, its biggest threat has a name, being Tapu Koko and Electric-type moves. And despite this, it was worth taking pelipper in order to put the Rain on the field, while to make up for its weakness to the Electric type it was seen with Pokémon like Raichu, whose Lightning Rod ability deflected all attacks towards it while increasing its Special Attack.
In previous tops we made it clear that the legendary ones did not enter so that they would not be monopolized, but since they are the Ultra Entities a category apartthe fact that Celesteela is from best pokemon of this generationbeing so that it is a Pokémon that, in essence, has all the advantages that Skarmory had, but multiplied by ten, since it is capable of resist much better at the same time that its Ultra Boost ability increases one of its statistics every time it weakens a Pokémon.
To this we must add that putting Remains with Drains was equivalent to having a very durable Pokémon that endured everything, especially if you had Substitute to accompany. Not for nothing, during the first stages of the competitive of this generation it could be seen that fighting against Celesteela was very common, being the closest thing to the fighting between Wobbuffet that we had in the third generation of the saga. And if its support moves weren’t enough, Focus Blaze and Air Slash could make this a much stronger Pokémon.
The absolute king of the Ultra Entities is not even close to Guzzlord, since, despite the lore of this Pokémon, it must be said that it is not very good in the competitive field either. On the contrary, the Pokémon that shines is the smallest of all these, being so Kartana is the best Ultra Entity of the seventh generation, being far ahead of the rest of its brothers for various reasons, starting with its combination of types that makes it just be weak to Fire and Fight.
However, despite this, we are facing a Pokémon with enormous Speed and Attack, which can increase with the simple fact of eliminating an opponent on the field, this being something that will not cost it too much. In fact, you can see that it has toppings like Sharp Blade, Holyblade, Truehorn, among many others that allow you to attack any Pokémon. And if we add to this the fact that it also has a high Defense and that it is immune to Spores and Toxic, we have a Pokémon that can destroy entire teams.
If in the previous generation we could see that Greninja stood out above his peersin this case Incineroar is the one that becomes the true king of the competitive, being so that during the seventh generation and the entire eighth it became a fixed Pokémon on all teamsbeing this something in which the fact of get Intimidate as a Hidden Skillits power reaching such a point that in the eighth generation different measures were put in to avoid Attack drops.
In any case, limiting Incineroar to Intimidate is an understatement, as with Surprise and Last Word It is capable of stopping the opponent dead at the same time that it will lower its Attack and Special Attack, together with the fact that it has great movements such as Dark Lariat, Igneous Blitz, Scream, Claw Blow, among many others, and can also go with Remains to hold better or the Chosen Scarf to attack first.
By far Incineroar is one of the best pokemon ever made, so it is expected that as soon as it is available again in the ninth generation, it will once again become a regular in all the battles that are yet to come to the game. And it is that, the one that has been called colloquially as the tigretoño it seems that has come to stay a long timehaving to be very attentive to Charizard and the rest of the initials if they do not want to end up being eclipsed.
