SS Tier All-Rounders

Pokemon Tier Best Lane
Blaziken ImageBlaziken S Rank Icon Any
Combo Specialist
Blaziken fits the All-Rounder role nicely but has a competitive edge compared to others. Although having a gameplay centered on special mechanics and combos is common for All-Rounders, Blaziken takes it to the next level. Its ability to freely switch between movesets using its Unite Move allows the Pokemon to perform more and longer combos, leading to more damage dealt, and gives it more versatility to adapt to various situations. However, its competitive edge does come with a price, which is a high skill ceiling. The Pokemon demands more from players compared to others in order to perform to its full potential.
Mega Mewtwo X ImageMega Mewtwo X S Rank Icon Any
Epitome of a Brawler
Mega Mewtwo X is the ultimate example of a brawler. It has a perfect balance of damage, durability, and mobility to start with. It thrives in drawn-out fights thanks to its ability to increase its Attack, Defense, and Sp. Def. stats simply by attacking opponents, becoming stronger and more durable simultaneously as the fight continues. It can reach its full strength and turn into a ravaging juggernaught when it Mega evolves, which can easily overwhelm opponents. It also doesn't have any power spike timings to consider and just relies on the natural progression of the game to get stronger.
Scizor ImageScizor S Rank Icon Any
Two Pokemon in One
Scizor has two distinct playstyles depending on whether it stays as Scyther or evolves into Scizor at level 5. Scizor has the typical All-Rounder playstyle, taking the role of a frontline brawler. On the other hand, Scyther follows the fast-paced assassin playstyle commonly seen in Attackers or Speedsters. Although niether evolution does anything unique, they're nonetheless effective in their own right.
Tsareena ImageTsareena S Rank Icon Any
All Hail the Queen
Tsareena has a moveset where any combination is a powerful one thanks their high synergy with its passive ability, Queenly Majesty. It also has the best singe-target damage and disable move thanks to Queen Ascendant. It's incredibly easy to use despite having mechanics that are above aboves in terms of complication. Its high damage, sustain, and ease of use allows Tsareena to easily dominate games and makes it a formidable All-Rounder.
Urshifu ImageUrshifu S Rank Icon Any
The King of Combat
Urshifu is a great example of an All-Rounder. It's durable enough to take hits in the frontlines while dishing out massive damage in return. It also has some versitility thanks to its two styles. The Rapid Strike Style relies on sustain, mobility, and cooldown reduction to bombard targets with quick and seemingly endless combos. On the other hand, Single Strike Style relies on durability and massive burst damage to execute targets as fast as possible. Regardless of which style Urshifu adopts, both require players to perform combos in a strict order to trigger all possible effects and mechanics that a style offers. However, compared to other All-Rounders, Urshifu lacks mobility like that of Lucario, and it requires more mechanical skills to use properly unlike Tsareena. Nonetheless, its damage output is exceptional for an All-Rounder, which puts it above the rest.
Zacian ImageZacian S Rank Icon Jungle
The Fairy King's Sword
Zacian is a great mix of strength, speed, and durability, making it a true All-Rounder. Its gameplay is mostly centered on its ability, Intrepid Sword, which increases its moves' damage and gives them additional effects. It's these effects that give the Pokemon the strength, speed, and durability it needs to shine in battles. Its only downside is that it can only equip two (2) Held items since one slot is permanently reserved for its unique item, Rusted Sword, which does not do and give anything. This serverely limits the potential builds for the Pokemon. Nonetheless, it's an extremely powerful All-Rounder that can outshine the rest.

S Tier All-Rounders

Pokemon Tier Best Lane
Azumarill ImageAzumarill S Rank Icon Jungle/Bot
Critical-Hit Machine
Azumarill excels in 1-on-1 fights thanks to its passive ability, Huge Power, which deals critical damage when facing a single opponent. This also works on wild Pokemon, which enables Azumarill to scale fast in the early game, especially when it starts in the Jungle. However, the downside is that it does not work well during teamfights where opponents are close to each other, preventing Huge Power from triggering and holding back Azumarill's potential. Nonetheless, its early-game power spike is too significant to ignore, especially since it's the earliest power spike compared to other All-Rounders.
Metagross ImageMetagross S Rank Icon Top/Bot
A True Hybrid
Metagross is a cross between an All-Rounder and Defender. It excels in frontline melee combat and can make itself more durable through shields and status effect resistance. However, it isn't a capable brawler at the same level as All-Rounders like Mega Mewtwo X, and its moves don't allow for endless combos like that of Tsareena, making it somewhat quite average compared to those Pokemon. Nonetheless, Metagross is a great All-Rounder that's truly versatile and an impactful frontliner.
Lucario ImageLucario S Rank Icon Any
Power and Mobility Combined
Lucario's signature mobility makes it the fastest All-Rounder in the game. It also has decent survivability thanks to Steadfast, which works well in the frontlines. Efficient in any lane, this Pokemon can easily close the distance on its target and execute lightning-fast combos. However, it gets outshined by more prominent All-Rounders like Tsareena and Urshifu, which practically have the same gameplay as Lucario but offers something unique and more effective. Nonetheless, Lucario is a reliable All-Rounder to have in a team.

A Tier All-Rounders

Pokemon Tier Best Lane
Aegislash ImageAegislash A Rank Icon Any
A Very Technical Sword to Wield
Aegislash proved to be a very powerful All-Rounder to grace the UNITE battlefield. Its ability to switch between a defensive stance and offensive stance via Stance Change makes it a well-balanced All-Rounder. It can fit in any lane but is an exceptional jungler for an All-Rounder. However, given its technical nature, it's difficult to execute its gameplay due to the changing mechanics. Despite its technical nature, Aegislash can dominate games once mastered.
Machamp ImageMachamp A Rank Icon Jungle / Bot
The Unstoppable Juggernaut
Machamp's advantage over other All-Rounders is its arsenal of moves that grant buffs. It has great lockdown tools with Submission and its unite move, Barrage Blow, making it a great Pokemon for setting up knockdowns for your team. Although Machamp struggles in the early game, once it has access to its buffs and lockdowns, its offense increases exponentially and can take over the game.
Mimikyu ImageMimikyu A Rank Icon Any
The Odd-Rounder
Mimikyu possesses features that is common with All-Rounders but tends to be more of an assassin in its gameplay. The Pokemon is surprisingly good at picking off targets one by one thanks to having moves that deal extra damage the lower the target's HP is. However, it isn't a suitable frontliner, which All-Rounders tend to be, due to how its ability, Disguise, works. Since the Pokemon's HP is set to a percentage of its max HP when it gets hit by an opponent, it becomes less durable than normal, putting the Pokemon in an awkward situation. Nonetheless, the Pokemon's peculiar nature makes it a versatile Pokemon, which is the definitive feature of All-Rounders.
Tyranitar ImageTyranitar A Rank Icon Jungle / Bot
Tyrannical Destruction
Tyranitar is known for dishing out large amounts of damage thanks to its passive ability, Sand Stream. It can increase its durability using Ancient Power or Sand Tomb all while gaining bonus offensive effects. But what makes it deadly is its Unite Move, Tyrannical Rampage, increasing its damage and giving it the ability to instantly execute targets with low HP. However, Tyranitar's biggest hurdle is its tedious early game since its power spike only starts at level 9, which by then might be too late. But if it strives in the early game, it's definitely a Pokemon to fear.

C Tier All-Rounders

Pokemon Tier Best Lane
Buzzwole ImageBuzzwole B Rank Icon Jungle / Bot
Quintessential Brawn
Buzzwole excels in locking down a single target and setting up knockouts for its team, making it a great frontline Pokemon. It becomes more effective the longer it stays alive during fights due to the buffs it recevies from its passive ability, Beast Boost. Although its moves need to be executed in the right order and require proper positioning, the amount of damage they can deal makes it all worth it. However, Buzzwole needs a solid team behind it to get the most out of its features.
Charizard ImageCharizard B Rank Icon Any
Packs a heavy punch
Charizard's moveset can turn it into either a ranged fighter or a semi-melee brawler all while inflicting burn damage. Its best feature is its unique attack mechanic, which allows it to move freely while attacking, making it easier to stay on top of its targets. What holds Charizard back, however, is its weak early game. Charizard needs consistent farm to reach its power spike at level 9.
Dragonite ImageDragonite B Rank Icon Jungle/Bot
Eternal Outrage
Dragonite is another versatile All-Rounder. It can be played as a melee brawler via Outrage or a ranged burst damage dealer with Hyper Beam. Both moves make Dragonite a great Pokemon for securing objectives, which is a huge contribution to the team. But its unique asset is its global map presence thanks to Draco Impact, allowing Dragonite to quickly join fights from across the map. However, its versitility gets outclassed by other All-Rounders like Scizor and Urshifu.

C Tier All-Rounders

Pokemon Tier Best Lane
Garchomp ImageGarchomp C Rank Icon Any
A True Melee Brawler
Garchomp is a damage machine that gets stronger as it rips through enemies with its hard-hitting Standard Attacks. It also has a bit of mobility thanks to Dragon Rush or Dig. However, Garchomp gets outshined by every other All-Rounders on the roster in terms of what they offer. Its strengths and gameplay are not enough to leave an impact in the game.
Gyarados ImageGyarados C Rank Icon Top/Bot
A Hard Catch
Gyarados lacks the versatility that is definitive of an All-Rounder. It doesn't necessarily excel in melee combat compared to the likes of Mega Mewtwo Y and Dragonite as its attack damage and attack speed are quite average. Its moves also don't have that much synergy with each other that allows for well-structured combos like that of Urshifu and Aegislash. But what makes it such a bad example of an All-Rounder is its evolution mechanic. Having to fill up its effort gauge to just evolve makes the Pokemon's job as an All-Rounder exponentially harder, at least compared to the rest.

Criteria
Power Level Team Impact Ease-of-Use Role Effectivess

Each of these factors determine the Pokemon's place within the tier list. Read on to learn what they refer to exactly:

  • Power Level: Determines how strong a Pokemon is in theory (when its potential is realized; optimized itemization and playstyle) compared to other Pokemon within its role.
  • Team Impact: Determines how instrumental a Pokemon is from a team's perspective. What does the Pokemon bring to the table and how effective is this to achieve victory?
  • Ease-Of-Use: When two things perform at roughly the same power level, the one that's easier to use is always better. We always have to consider the amount of effort it takes to play certain Pokemon into account.
  • Role Effectiveness: Determines how well the Pokemon upholds its role and the expectations that come with it. We look at how its playstyle coincides with the fundamental aspects of the role the Pokemon has.

They hecking move CHARIZARD to B tier, but Garchomp, arguably much better, is still in C tier. Charizard has absolutely no gimmicks to make it viable, but Garchomp has a great combo attack, and Lifesteal.
