Pokemon Go: Here Are the Best Pokemon in Every Category

Pokemon Go resource tool The Silph Road has compiled an impressive amount of data on the monster-catching mobile game.


Pokemon Go has a fair bit of mystery around itself. What Pokemon hatch from which eggs? How do I get specific Eevee evolutions? Where can I find the legendary Pokemon? Although Pokemon Go resource tool The Silph Road doesn't answer all of those questions, it does have a lot of information on the mobile game.

The Silph Road has stats on all 151 Pokemon available in the game, in addition to how you can earn experience and what earning each trainer level gets you. There's also a section for "Moves," but it can't be accessed just yet. It's a really impressive website that looks like it's essential to dominating Pokemon Go.
