Best Starter Pokemon

The game is easy enough for you to choose your favorite Pokemon and clear it with him or her, without having to worry too much about their strength.

However, there are some of the starters who have clear advantages and will make going through the story a lot easier.

For advice on what Pokemon to be, see our page about Best Starters.

Best Partner Pokemon

Just like your starter Pokemon, you can choose whichever Pokemon you like as your partner and not have much trouble clearing the game, but it’s recommended that you try to cover your starter Pokemon’s weakness with your partner Pokemon.

Below you can find our recommendation for the partner Pokemon we think is the best overall:
