You know the saying… ‘Gotta catch ‘em all’ is the calling card of Pokémon, a catchphrase and also a set of instructions telling you exactly what you need to do before you’ve even started playing the game. So what do you do once you have caught them all? Well, you make them fight to the death (or faint, whatever), and that’s where the strongest Pokémon come in.
If you have already explored every corner of Paldea and picked up every pocket monster, you are probably on the hunt for the strongest Pokémon in Scarlet and Violet so you can get battling online and sweep some noobs. So we’ve gathered the toughest of the bunch, and put together this handy dandy guide so you know exactly who to catch and train. This list will be focused on new Pokémon introduced in Scarlet and Violet, and it will also not include legendary Pokémon, as their base stat spreads mean they are all fairly viable in competitive. Once you’ve checked out the list, get battle ready with our guides to Pokémon Scarlet and Violet items and the Pokémon Scarlet and Violet TM machine.
