I'll always remember the "Tobybro" from generation 1 Pokemon.  It was the only Pokemon that could really stand up to Mewtwo.  It was a Slowbro.  It has Surf, Amnesia, Thunder Wave, and Rest.  The Psychic sub type and Slowbro's high Special would keep Mewtwo from pummeling it.  Thunder Wave to slow down Mewtwo and hopefully cost him some turns.  Surf to pummel Mewtwo once you got in some good Amnesias, and Rest to recover what damage he did do.

#4: Scyther
           
BUG / FLYING
Points: 55; Lists: 3; Highest: Asbestos Bill (#1)


by Paleona via deviantArt


by WarBandit via deviantArt

                                                                                                                                                                            Scyther is based on the praying mantis, though the scythes themselves are less like the mantis' arms than the scythes of Kabutops. Scyther has the large abdomen and wings, though. Scyther's claim to fame, aside from his cutlery, is its extreme speed. It is known to hide in long grass and hunt with its nija-like agility. It's signature moves are Slash and Double Team.

Scyther was a Red exclusive, found rarely in the Safari Zone. Alternatively, it could be purchased from the Game Corner. In Gen 2, you could evolve Scyther into Scizor by trading it while holding a Metal Coat. Though its stat total did not increase (speed dropped, Attack and Defense increased), it went from Bug/Flying to Bug/Steel, a far superior combo. But scizor isn't nearly as cool. And despite Scyther's many weaknesses, he's still a force to be reckoned with. With Swords Dance, Schyther can cut foes down, then Baton Pass when the going gets tough. With the ability Technician, consider weaker moves like Aerial Ace, Wing Attack, and even Cut, as Technician doubles the power of moves with power 60 or less.

                                                                                                                                                                           


Ideal nature: Jolly

Recommended moves:
Swords Dance
Aerial Ace
Bug Bite
Brick Break
U-Turn
Quick Attack
Baton Pass
Roost

#3: Alakazam
           
PSYCHIC
Points: 71; Lists: 3; Highest: Coragale (#1)

by Chaos-Thory1 via deviantArt

                                                                                                                                                                            Alakazam is a moustachioed psychic pokémon. Even the females have moustaches, but they are smaller. It has an extremely high mental capacity, giving it an IQ of 5000. Its brain cells are constantly multiplying, until it has to use telekinesis to help its neck support the weight of its head, and it never forgets anything—according to the description in Pokémon Yellow—ever. Despite this, it is only capable of knowing four moves at a time.

Aalakazam is a powerhouse special attacker with very high speed to boot. Max Special Attack on an Alakazam reaches over 400 with a helping nature. Its downfall is low HP and Defense. Gen 5 brought two new boons to Alakazam's effectiveness. First is the move Psyshock, which uses the user's Special Attack, but the receiver's regular Defense stat. This is useful for clearing out special walls and pokémon like Blissey. The second is the hidden ability Magic Sheild, which negates indirect damage. That includes poison and self-inflicted damage.

Scyther was awesome in Pokemon Stadium GS in that one arena where you could only use level 5 Pokemon that were not at their highest evolution.  Chansey too.  I think it was called the Little Cup.  I used Elekid, Squirtle, Cubone, Scyther, Chansey, and Houndour.  Made liberal use of breeding to and TMs and HMs to get good moves.  You can see them here if you check Team Iota.

#2: Haunter
           
GHOST / POISON
Points: 72; Lists: 4; Highest: Relaxing Dragon (#2)

                                                                                                                                                                            Haunter is the evolutionary stage immediately previous to Gengar, who graced this list at #33. Like Gengar, Haunter likes playing tricks on people and despite seeming evil, is often just playful. Since it gains a pair of floating hands once it evolves from Ghastly, it is able to learn physical attacks like Poison Jab. Haunter inhabit graveyards, abandonded mansions, and sometimes caves. Its lick steals life energy.

Haunter is a first Gen pokémon found in Pokémon Tower in Red and Blue. It has a high Special Attack and above average speed, but its HP and defenses are terrible. This is somewhat counterballanced by having three immunities and three resistances, two of which are double, but it is still fragile. A wider moovepool and secondary STAB options sets it apart from other Ghosts like Mismagius, letting it stay a viable option even among current generation pokémon.

#1: Mewtwo
           
PSYCHIC
Points: 74; Lists: 6; Highest: Invader Quirk (#1)

                                                                                                                                                                            Mewtwo was genetically engineered from Mew's DNA in an effort to create the ultimate pokémon. When it awoke, it destroyed the lab and left to hide in a cave. In the anime, it is implied that Mewtwo worked for Giovanni for a time. In Pokémon: The First Movie, Mewtwo creates his own army of superclones, inviting the best trainers in the world, plus Ash, to Mewtwo's lair to steal their pokémon. He planned to take over the world, erradicating the human race.

Mewtwo is in the base 680 stat range, with only Arceus being more powerful. He is found at the end of Cerulean Cave after the Elite Four are beaten. Mewtwo is the pokémon the Masterball was clearly designed for, because if you waste it on something else, you'll have a hell of a time trying to capture him—both because his catch rate is so low, and because he is quite powerful. With godly stats and a diverse moovepool, Mewtwo is good at just about everything.

Awesome list! Great work Bill!

Mewtwo, of course! I'm kind of surprised Haunter beat Gengar. I figure a Pokemon with feet is better than a Pokemon with no feet.

Here's my personal list:

1. Jigglypuff
2. Loudred
3. Marill
4. Spoink
5. Porygon
6. Togepi
7. Tepig
8. Honchkrow
9. Exeggcute
10. Vulpix
11. Aipom
12. Phanpy
13. Wigglytuff
14. Donphan
15. Shinx
16. Emboar
17. Igglybuff
18. Natu
19. Murkrow
20. Rotom
21. Scizor
22. Exploud
23. Polywrath
24. Probopass
25. Golurk

And since I had so much fun talking about Pokemon here, I've opened an official thread here: http://forum.rifftrax.com/index.php?topic=24141.0
