10 most powerful trainers in Pokemon, ranked

Gamingxnews.com ❤️

The most powerful Trainers tend to be champions, often with a fully evolved team full of good Pokemon. Though there are minor exceptions to this rule, the anime generally makes it very clear when a Trainer is a step or two above those around them.

Thanks to the World Coronation series, it's easy to determine who the most powerful Pokémon trainers are (featured in episode 109 of the Journeys anime).  There are also other anime spin-offs related to this franchise (such as Origins), but this list will focus only on the main series.

#10 - Giovanni

This entry is an honorable mention based on the time when Mewtwo was under Giovanni's control.  This would no longer be relevant in the modern series as Mewtwo has long since escaped Giovanni's grip.  Still, it's worth noting how powerful it made Team Rocket at the time.

#9 - Ash

Ash is currently ranked eighth in the World Coronation Series as the last member of the Master Class.  The main protagonist of this series has run a lot so far and has even managed to become the inaugural champion of the Alola region.

#8 - Iris

She usually scored somewhere in the top four to 16 in black and white tournaments.  So it's impressive that she's gotten a lot stronger since then.

#7 - Alain

Ellen is unquestionably Ash's strongest opponent, and despite not being a champion of any field, this speaks to her ability to rank so high as a trainer.

In addition to being a famous movie star, Diantha is also known to be an incredibly powerful Pokémon trainer.  Her only known Pokémon is Gardevoir, yet she was able to make it to Rank 5 in the World Coronation Series.

#5 - Lance

It is quite an achievement for Kanto and Johto to be champions, so it is no surprise that Lance was ranked number four in the World Coronation Series.
