The 10 best Dark Pokemon of all time

The best Dark Pokémon are cool yet shady, and aren't afraid to get their hands dirty

Known as the ‘Evil’ type in Japan, it’s no surprise that Dark-types all have a certain sharpness to their design. They’re not meant to be your cuddly partners or happy friends, they’re malevolent creatures who enjoy inflicting pain on others – or they’re just going through a goth phase. It’s up to you.

Either way, it means that Dark Pokémon should have a cool edge to them. Nothing’s worse than a Dark-type that looks like it’s trying too hard to be edgy. That’s why we’re running down the best Dark Pokémon.
