Pokemon's First Appearance: Pokemon Gold, Silver & Crystal

As a half Water, half Electric Pokemon, Lanturn is one of the most contradictory Pokemon on this list. But it works to its advantage: the creature can unleash attacks such as Surf and Hydro Pump, and Thunder and Zap Cannon. Plus, its only true weaknesses are Ground and Grass attacks, which means it's normally damaged by other attacks or nearly resistant to them. Not bad for a Pokemon with a base stat total of 460, and whose attacks should turn them into a fried fish.
