The most incredible thing about Pokemon (beyond how many Pokemon articles the internet will tolerate) is that, somehow, humanity has enslaved them. These are super-powered animals that should have easily conquered this planet of puny homo sapiens long ago. Yet for whatever reason, they listen to our commands without question and battle each other for our own amusement. But a few of them have no excuse - they're described as so insanely powerful, it's incredible that they haven't risen up and smashed us into oblivion. These are the 10 Pokemon that are too ridiculously-strong for their (and our) own good.
Magcargo's body temperature is approximately 18,000 degrees F. Water is vaporized on contact. If this Pokémon is caught in the rain, the raindrops instantly turn into steam, cloaking the area in a thick fog. (Sapphire)
Okay - the surface of the sun is approximately 10,000 degrees F. Which means (*adjusts tie*) MAGCARGO IS NEARLY TWICE AS HOT AS THE SUN. You know that Smashmouth song, "Might As Well Be Walkin' On The Sun?" That's more realistic than being anywhere near Magcargo, since this lava slug thing is literally ALMOST TWICE AS HOT AS THE FREAKIN SUN. SOL, THE CENTER OF OUR SOLAR SYSTEM, IS PRETTY DAMN CHILLY COMPARED TO THIS SINGLE INDIVIDUAL POKEMON.
Although, just to test it out, we should probably send the members of Smashmouth to confirm.
It floats midair using magnetism. Its body is so tough, even a crash with a jet plane won't leave a scratch. (FireRed)
If a jet plane won't leave a scratch after crashing into you, that's coming very close to saying you're completely invincible. But what's more disturbing about this is that the entry indicates that jet planes hitting Metang and exploding is something that isn't uncommon. And given that magnetism is a big part of its existence, it's probably drawing those jet planes into it just because it can. Given jet planes typically fly at speeds of over 500 mph, weigh around 400,000 lbs., and have a fuel capacity of around 50,000 gallons, Metangs walking away without so much as a scratch is pretty horrifyingly powerful. So, ya know, maybe throw out something other than a big butterfly when fighting this thing.
One arm alone can move mountains. Using all four arms, this Pokémon fires off awesome punches. (Yellow)
Its four ruggedly developed arms can launch a flurry of 1,000 punches in just two seconds. (FireRed)
Machamp is a strong-looking Pokemon - he's got the bodybuilder physique, give or take a few arms; his natural pose is as if he wandered into an Arnold Schwarzenegger workout tape; and he's confident in a speedo (which shows strength in self-confidence maybe?). But he's so much stronger than his swole bod would suggest - each arm can move a mountain, meaning he could move four mountains at once (if they were all located really, really close together). And wait - each arm can launch 125 punches per second, meaning he could knock away 500 mountains per second (if they kept flying at him somehow). That's impressive. REALLY impressive. Most Pokemon can't punch a single mountain - let alone thousands per second. What's even more impressive is that mountains still exist at all in the Pokemon world, since this had to have been tested at some point.
