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.

1. Ditto

10 of the Most Absurdly Powerful Creatures in the Pokemon World

It can transform into anything. When it sleeps, it changes into a stone to avoid being attacked. (Gold)

It has the ability to reconstitute its entire cellular structure to transform into whatever it sees. (Diamond)

Ditto is everything. Not only can it transform into any Pokemon - it can transform into anything it wants, organic and non-organic things alike. Any Pokemon on this list? Ditto can become them. It can become whatever kind of Pokemon theyr'e weak against. It can become - theoretically - anything that exists. The moon, the Earth, Arceus, etc.

An organized army of Dittoes could take over the planet if they wanted - so could a lot of Pokemon, I guess. But the difference is that Dittoes could do it without anyone ever noticing. It could replace your family and your friends without you realizing it. Eventually, a Ditto could replace you. They could replace us all.

Unless...they already have.


2. Arceus

10 of the Most Absurdly Powerful Pokemon In Existence

It is described in mythology as the Pokémon that shaped the universe with its 1,000 arms. (Diamond)

Hey, this Pokemon here? Of the same genetic family as a psychic mime and a sentient bag of garbage? It's basically (literally) GOD. Also, it somehow has 1,000 arms, none of which can be seen. Maybe it got rid of them because it's GOD and doesn't need 1,000 arms because it apparently can get along just fine shaping the entire universe with a couple legs.


3. Grimer

10 of the Most Absurdly Powerful Creatures in the Pokemon World

As it moves, it loses bits of its body from which new Grimer emerge. This worsens the stench around it. (Gold)

Grimers are infinitely self-replicating - which would be pretty nightmarishly-powerful on its own (additionally Muk, Grimer's evolved form, vomits up Grimers) - but, for some reason, this also makes it smell worse and worse. Eventually, it should have untold numbers of asexually-produced children (who, in turn, are leaving behind their own untold number of asexually-produced children) AND an infinitely horrible stench around it.


4. Lugia

10 of the Most Absurdly Powerful Creatures in the Pokemon World

It sleeps in a deep-sea trench. If it flaps its wings, it is said to cause a 40-day storm. (Diamond)

Well, considering Lugia's primarily way of getting around is "flying" - and the way it flies is by flapping its wings - Lugia's causing years worth of storms pretty much every time it goes anywhere. The Pokemon world should be covered in an unceasing meteorological nightmare, all because one stupid legendary Pokemon can't just sit still for its entire life.


5. Entei

10 of the Most Absurdly Powerful Creatures in the Pokemon World

Volcanoes erupt when it barks. Unable to restrain its extreme power, it races headlong around the land. (Gold)

Entei cannot speak any language other than Pokemon-ese (which, sadly, probably isn't even understandable to fellow Pokemon, since each Pokemon can only say their respective name) - so let's just assume any time it wants to vocalize anything, its a bark. That's a lot of volcanoes erupting all the time - especially since its description isn't limited to 1 volcano eruption per bark. If Entei ever hears a thunderstorm, it would probably drown the entire planet in lava. Well, at least exploding magma isn't as hot as Macargoes.
