What is the Best Pixelmon Team?
Last updated on December 9th, 2016.
What is the best Pixelmon team? One of the oldest questions in the Pokédex. Well, me and my good friends Pyranna and Rodge decide to tackle this challenge, and go list our favorite Pixelmon. Please remember that this list is made out of our own opinions. Feel free to leave your thoughts, and suggestions in the comment, along with your own favorite pokemon!
The following list is not in any specific order, and consists of non-legendary, extremely powerful Pixelmon – all that we can find in the mod. To see a list of all available Pokemon in the Pixelmon mod, click here.
The Best Pixelmon Team
The best starter-evolution by far, this beast on the battlefield has a great attack stat. Additionally, this Water/Ground type has only one weakness: Grass. Due to Grass not being a common type anyway, switching between Pixelmon often is not necessary. Additionally, Swampert is capable of learning Ice Beam which will cover that weakness either way. With the ability to learn superior moves like Take Down, Earthquake, or Muddy Water, this Pixelmon can take down foes fairly easily.
One of the rarer Pixelmon on the list, Dragonite is the perfect banded sweeper. A very diverse Pokémon, and having a base attack of 134, this guy can be trained as a hard hitter, or a longlasting tank. Having the ability to learn moves like Earthquake, or Wing Attack, make this fan favorite a very valuable addition to any team. However, if you find that your Dragonite is too slow for your team – consider Salamence. Almost equal in stats and moves, the differences lie only in that Salamence has less bulk, more speed, and does not yet have the ability to learn Dragon Dance. Either Pokemon would make a great addition to the best Pixelmon team.
Extremely underestimated sweeper who has been sitting in the NU bracket for years. Due to recent changes and the addition of the Sturdy Ability, Golem is far more than capable of actually sweeping an entire team. With the mixture of moves like Earthquake, Rock Throw, and Rock Polish, Golem can outspeed any other Ground Type in his category. Don’t underestimate someone who is willing to give this original Rock type a try, and altogether Golem is one of the best pokemon in pixelmon.
An often overlooked Pixelmon, it is a Poison/Dark type. Meaning it has only ONE weakness. That mixed with an ability like Fling and a Toxic Orb meaning that this Pixelmon doesn’t even need to carry a move like Toxic. Capable of replacing that slot with a move like Venoshock. It can also learn wonderful moves like Earthquake, Crunch, and many more. It’s singular typing weakness means that it doesn’t have to worry about any type at all. Save for it’s x2 weakness to Ground.
This great Bug/Fire type is like a mini legendary; it has a great special attack, defense and speed (though it does have a huge weakness to Electric). Plus, with one Quiver Dance, any Volcarona user knows that it can sweep a whole team, instantly. Volcarona is one of the best pokemon available, and is definitely worth a try for any player.
As one of the most powerful Psychic Pixelmon, and overall one of the best pokemon, this mysterious creature has one of the highest special attack and speed’s in the game. It can learn some of the best Psychic moves, like Psychic, Future Sight, etc. This pixelmon also has the ability to learn a large variety of different type moves, such as Grass, Electric, Dark, Ghost, etc.
An unexpected boss, this Pixelmon is one of the best, with it’s legendary-like defenses, this tank can last a long while. Additionally, he only has one weakness- Fighting. Even with moves like Aura Sphere, Focus Blast, or Solarbeam, you’ll have a tough time defeating this giant. He can easily take out other Pixelmon with moves like Crunch. Overall, this king adds a huge defensive and offensive boost to any team. A great addition to the best Pixelmon team.
Alright folks, that’s a basic list of the best pixelmon team, in our personal opinions. In case you’ve been counting, you’ll notice I’ve listed seven Pokémon – this is because all these current Pixelmon are almost equally powerful, and it allows you to switch out or simply use what you prefer, in terms of Pokémon typing (fire team, water team, etc). Additionally, remember that simply catching good Pixelmon is not the end of your training. You must level up these Pixelmon, and as you go on, learn more methods of training such as EV training. So go have fun, and be sure to test these teams out in single player in the wild, or even against your friend on your favorite pixelmon servers! I hope you enjoyed, and as usual, please do leave feedback of what you think in the comments!
