Players may locate and catch their favourite Highest Combat Powers Pokémon from all eight generations of the franchise in Pokémon Go.
Knowing which Pokémon species are the strongest can be challenging because there are so many different Pokémon available in the game.
The CP of the Pokémon is one element that can shed some light on this.
Combat power, or CP, is distinct from a Pokémon’s stats.
The CP may be summed up as the base stats plus a secret variable known as an IV that determines the Pokémon’s total power in combat and is directly influenced by its Attack, Defense, and HP values.
Every Pokémon has a maximum CP that can be raised as it levels up, but some Pokémon are just born with larger maximum CPs than others.
We’ve reduced this list of the 100+ Pokémon and forms in the game to the top 15 species with the highest maximum CP.
15. Mega Gyarados
This Pokémon is of the Water and Dark types, and it has a maximum CP of 5,332 as well as strong Attack numbers.
Even though Mega Evolutions are quite strong, they have a drawback: they cannot be utilised in PvP, have an eight-hour duration, and need Mega Energy, thus players must choose the right circumstances to Mega Evolve.
Despite this, this form’s might is largely unrivalled and more than sufficient to overwhelm its opponents.
Get it by evolving Beldum with 25 candies and Metang with 100 candies.
You’ll see that a lot of the Pokémon on this list are challenging to find, Metagross included. Beldum are rarely seen in the wild, making them difficult to hunt.
The fact that Metagross has a very high maximum battle strength makes it well worth it.
This Pokémon can learn Meteor Mash and will destroy both PvP and PvE opponents!
Similar to the last entry, getting your hands on dragonite can take weeks.
Due to its versatility, Dragonite is regarded as a fan favourite and has consistently shown its mettle in video games. It is effective in every facet of combat in Pokémon GO.
Dragonites with opposite training styles are common in gyms everywhere, and with good reason—they can be extremely difficult to deal with.
One of, if not the simplest Pokémon on this list to obtain.
Latios needs Rare Candies to power up, but when it’s at its highest battle power, it hits hard.
You’ll utilise this more as an attacker to take over gyms or engage in raid combat because it has significantly better offensive stats than defensive ones.
Larvitar can be evolved with 25 candies, and Pupitar can be evolved with 100 candies.
Tyranitar attacks powerfully and absorbs a lot of damage thanks to its excellent overall stats.
Tyranitar might be the greatest option for your search because Larvitar is one of the simpler basic Pokémon to find (in comparison to others on the list, at least).
Every trainer needs a Tyranitar in their collection because it is regarded as the best Dark type attacker in the entire game.
Rayquaza is an amazing boss Pokémon with insanely high offensive stats.
It is regarded as the best Flying type attacker that is currently available and has access to certain effective Dragon type attacks.
However, as it hardly ever appears as a raid boss, getting it can be difficult.
You should try to keep an eye out for local Pokémon GO groups on social media because you can never defeat a Rayquaza raid by yourself.
9. Ho Oh
How to obtain: Raids and awards for scientific breakthroughs are occasionally offered.
I was quite shocked to learn just how powerful Ho-Oh is.
Some of the Pokémon that have previously appeared on this list might undoubtedly be deemed better deserving of a greater battle power maximum.
Regardless, this Pokémon is simple to get because it frequently appears in scientific discoveries.
Even a shiny one was mine!
8. Mega Charizard Y
The ideal Fire-type Pokémon is Charizard Y, another Mega Evolution.
This beast will annihilate any opponents in its path thanks to some of the strongest Attack stats in the game.
The maximum possible CP for this species is 5,037, which is more than enough to make it one of the game’s most potent Pokémon.
Slaking, the strongest Pokémon in its basic form, has a maximum CP of 5,010.
Although it is a well-rounded Pokémon with a single Normal type, Yawn is its only rapid attack, which makes it difficult for it to defeat foes.
Slaking is one of your greatest options if you’re looking for something powerful without a Mega Evolution.
Regigigas is the Legendary Pokémon in Pokémon Go with the greatest CP at the moment. The maximum CP for this Normal-type is 4,913.
But because Regigigas is hidden behind a few Raids and hasn’t been seen in a while, it’s been one of the more challenging Pokémon to catch in Pokémon Go.
5. Mega Gengar
Gengar, a subsequent Mega Evolution, has a potent dual type with Ghost and Poison. Its excellent Attack makes up for its lack of endurance.
Mega Gengar is the ideal weapon to carry around in your pocket because it has the greatest Attack stat in the game and a maximum CP of 4,902.
4. Mega Ampharos
Ampharos, an Electric-type Pokémon from Generation II, gains a great amount of strength when it Mega Evolutes.
This form gains the Dragon typing and has a maximum CP of 4,799.
One of the strongest possibilities for an Electric-type offence in the game is this temporary form, making it a Pokémon well worth including on your team.
Kyogre and Groudon both have the same maximum battle power, placing them in a tie. The stat distribution is exactly the same for Kyogre as well.
Very similar, but with a Water type.
Water is the primary element in all rapid attacks, whereas Ice, Lightning, and Water are used in charge moves.
Both Kyogre and Groudon, third-generation Legendary Pokémon, are outstanding Pokémon with high CP values of 4,652.
The Pokémon of the Ground type Groudon is one of the most potent Legendaries currently accessible in the game.
By finishing the corresponding raid, you can capture this Pokémon.
Mewtwo is one of the most well-known and potent Legendary Pokémon in the game.
Mewtwo, with a maximum CP of 4,724, gives gamers the ideal Psychic-type offence.
Players must find its related raid and finish it in order to catch this species.
Its Shadow form has the same maximum CP, but thanks to the Shadow boost, it has considerably more attack power.
