One of the biggest questions in Pokemon Go have to do with which Pokemon is the best? After all there isn’t much that’s obvious to rate and compare each Pokemon. That’s why we’ve compiled our list of the best Pokemon in the game based on game statistics. You can take a look at the stats we used to determine the best Pokemon in Pokemon Go, but this list focuses on primarily Stamina, Attack and Defense stats.

While these are important Pokemon stats to consider, along with Combat Points, they aren’t the true indicator in combat. Because each Pokemon has a different type, and your opponent will have different weaknesses, it’s important to have a well rounded collection of Pokemon.

When you consider that the game isn't yet available in Asia and just recently made it's debut in Canada, you start to see how popular this game really is.

In other words, it a big deal.

This water type Pokemon comes in at number 10 in our Top Ten Best Pokemon in Pokemon Go countdown. His attack rating is fairly high, where he ranks 19th among all Pokemon in Pokemon Go. Although his defense rating is mediocre, Golduck's 194 attack rating put him head and shoulders above most Pokemon. He's a high damage dealer and capable of ripping apart the competition.

He uses two different kinds of attack which are similarly effective. Confusion and Water Gun are very fast and highly effective. Not sure what these values mean? Check out this guide to Pokemon stats here.

In short Golduck is one of the best Pokemon you can choose in your six man attack force against an enemy Pokemon Go gym.

Of course this countdown addresses the combat ability of the best Pokemon, rather than popularity. We all know that Pikachu would be one of the undisputed best Pokemon when it came to that criteria. If you happen to be a Pokemon Go beginner, you can use our Pokemon Go hack to get Pikachu the easy way.
