Since its debut in the ’90s, Pokémon has steadily added new monsters that appeal to a wide variety of people. Whatever your interests, there’s bound to be at least one pocket monster that catches your eye. People are more concerned with how each Pokemon looks from a design standpoint, but don’t consider each monster’s size; Depending on where you look at them, their sizes can be inconsistent.
From the smallest bird to the most mountainous Legendary, there are so many differences in Pokémon. Let’s take a moment to focus on the largest creatures you can encounter in any of the games. Here are the ten greatest Pokémon of all time according to Pokédex entries.
Note: We’re not including Dynamax/Gigantamax versions of Pokémon, as this list would then literally only include them.

The greatest Pokemon of all time
10. Wishiwashi (school form)
We begin our list with a unique situation. Wishiwashi is a fish known as a small fish-type Pokémon. So how does he rank on this list? This rather pathetic looking monster has an alternate form that it can use when it reaches level 20, the school form. Technically, a school of fish is a large group of individual fish attached together, but since you’re only going into battle with one Pokemon, we’ll count it in this case.
Onix has been quite a popular Pokémon since its debut in the anime series as one of Brock’s most popular creatures in his party. Onix are known as the Stone Snake Pokémon, which is pretty easy to see why. In his first appearance in the anime against Ash’s Pikachu, he towers over the competition, something not easily seen in the early Game Boy games. As technology has progressed we’ve been able to see better how big Onix is in games, but he still seems to have shrunk for display purposes.
Next comes Onix’s evolution, Steelix. This evolution, making its debut in Pokémon Gold and Silver, is done through trading with an Onix holding a metal cloak. Not only does this add the Steel-type to the rock and ground moves Onix has, but like other evolutions, it increases the size of the Pokemon. Steelix gains some more jagged edges and a larger head coated in iron thanks to the evolution. While there are no more traditional evolutions in this series, don’t expect this to be the last appearance of these snake-type Pokémon on this list.
Celesteela, the launch Pokemon, comes in at exactly the same height as Steelix thanks to its space shuttle appearance. It’s one of the Ultra Beasts, a group of Pokémon that hail from another dimension known as Ultra Space. Celesteela makeup is absolutely unique. While it looks like a space shuttle and is a steel type, it actually contains bamboo, making it partially a plant. It propels itself through the air on stored gas and is believed to be capable of traversing space.
Kyogre is a legendary Pokémon with the power to control the ocean. In its original state, it doesn’t come close to making this list, measuring “only” 14 feet, 9 inches (or 4.5 m). But equip it with the Blue Orb in Pokémon Alpha Sapphire and it undergoes a primordial inversion and becomes Primal Kyogre, a beast that transcends its previous form and grows to more than double its normal size. While retaining its general body shape, it has some distinct color and pattern changes as it transitions into the original inversion.
5. Mega Steelix
The Onix series makes its third and final appearance in the list of the greatest Pokémon, featuring the Mega Evolution form of Steelix. During this temporary transformation, Steelix’s body becomes even longer than before, while also doubling its mass and imparting crystallized features to its jagged appendages.
4. Mega Rayquaza
With another Mega Evolution, the legendary Pokémon Rayquaza makes the list after narrowly missing out on the top 10 with its original measurement of 23 feet (or 7.0 m). During the transformation, Mega Rayquaza’s body and head both grow longer as his horns also increase in size. The golden aspect seen in the original design is much more pronounced on the Mega Evolution, with tendrils reaching out and waving through the air.
3. Alola Exeggutor
For years, Exeggutor wasn’t even considered one of the biggest Pokemon. Kantonian Exeggutor made his debut alongside the series in 1996 and stands at just 6ft, 7in (or 2m) tall, which is nothing compared to his Alolan counterpart. The almost 30-foot difference is due in large part to the long neck this version of the Pokemon has. To fit an Alolan Exeggutor on screen, they’re often scaled down, although Pokémon Go will only show you the bottom portion if you’re trying to catch one.
Wailord is the Swimming Whale Pokémon and evolves from Wailmer at level 40. Its design is based on the Blue Whale with its small beady eyes and huge mouth. Wailords have been known to travel in groups and eat entire schools of wishiwashi in one gulp, to give you a clue of tenth place on this list. It can also create shock waves in the area as it pops out and crashes back into the water.
It’s not every day you see something that makes a whale appear small. Eternatus is a legendary Pokémon that appears in the closing moments of Pokémon Sword and Shield, literally referred to as the gigantic Pokémon. Eternatus is actually an alien dragon whose body looks more like a skeleton of that description. The glowing orb you can see in the thorax region is the Pokemon’s source of life and gives it the ability to gather energy and grow even larger in its Eternamax form, making it 328ft, 1in (or 100m) tall becomes.
