Best Pokemon in Pokemon Quest


Pokémon Quest is a free-to-play action-adventure game in the Pokémon series developed by Game Freak and published by Nintendo and The Pokémon Company. It was released for the Nintendo Switch in May 2018 and for Android and iOS in June 2018. Within a week of its release, it had reached over 7.5 million downloads.

With a cube-shaped art style, Pokémon Quest is unlike any other Pokémon game released before. The simple gameplay makes it easy to hop into expeditions and start exploring Tumblecube Island with the help of Pokémon buddies!

Today we will be talking about the best Pokémon in Pokémon Quest and why we think so.

Best Pokémon

There might be some debate amongst players regarding which the best Pokémon in Pokémon Quest are. This opinion comes from trial and error and checking every Pokémon’s effectiveness in multiple facets.

Our list for best Pokémon, not in any specific order, are:

  • Alakazam: Since the original Pokémon games, Alakazam has been a powerhouse, and that is no less apparent in Pokemon Quest, especially with Psychic.
    This long-range attack deals tons of damage. Give it a Whack Whack Stone (possibly a Wait Less Stone) for the most damage.
    However, it can sometimes be a bit of a glass cannon, so make sure its teammates can support it with moves like Harden as well as Sharing Stones.
  • Dragonite: Not much to say here—Dragonite’s stats are higher than every other Pokemon’s, after all (besides Legendaries). It also learns one of the most powerful moves in the game: Draco Meteor.
  • Golem: When it comes to tanks, this Rock/Ground-type Pokémon has the highest HP stat in Pokémon Quest. Adding to that, it can also learn Harden to further buff its tankiness.
    With three Sharing Stones attached, Golem also shares that defense buff with its teammates. Being a frontliner, it will take hits more than the rest of your team, which is perfect for a Tank.
    In terms of tank comparison, Golem is definitely better than other early tanks, like Onix, but it is also more difficult to get.
  • Lapras: This Water/Ice-type Pokémon’s bingo bonuses lets it heal more and take less damage. Combined with a healing Aqua Ring, Lapras makes for a great choice as a secondary defensive Pokémon.
  • Machamp: This Pokémon can learn Bulk Up to support its teammates with both buffs (with a Sharing Stone) at once: Attack and Defense! Acquiring a Machop with Bulk Up with two slots and an attack move is the most ideal for players.
  • Magneton: This Electric/Steel-type Pokémon might seem a little underwhelming at first, but rest assured, Magneton’s balanced stats and access to the Supersonic move makes it a great Support Pokémon in any lineup.
  • Snorlax: This heavy-weight Normal-type Pokémon is exceptionally strong in its own right. If its third Bingo Bonus is 550+ Attack, it will end up having some of the best-balanced stats in the game.
    Another caveat is that Snorlax can also learn Mega Punch, one of the best attacks in the game as well, making it a fantastic balanced Pokémon.
  • Starmie: This Water/Psychic-type Pokémon with the Hydro Pump move is a ridiculous power house. With a massive Special Attack and decent Speed stat, Starmie destroys waves of Pokémon with ease.
