List Rules Vote for your favorite Water Pokemon, which doesn't necessarily have to be the strongest.

List of the best Water Pokemon, ranked by Pokemon Masters like you. This greatest Water Pokemon list includes monsters from every generation, so you can vote on everything from Blastoise to Swampert. Not every Pokemon included below is a pure Water type, as some are half water or secondary water types. Water Pokemon are traditionally very popular, as they are strong both offensively and defensively. 

If you want to know, "What is the best Water Pokemon?" or "What are the top Water type Pokemon?" then you're in the right place. You can see other lists of the greatest Water Pokemon on other sites, but this is the only list that you can actually vote on and make your voice heard. If a Pokemon you love is missing, then feel free to add it at the bottom so it's included.
