    I'm going to say Blaziken. It's done pretty much the most and won the most battles out of all of her Pokemon.

    Didn't deserve to evolve, compared to what, most of the other pokemon that evolve in this show with little to no battles?

    Anyway I'd say Beautifly was probably the second strongest do its amount of contest techniques and abilities.

    Beautifly was the best in first round performences, but Blaziken always pulled through in the end.

    So Blaziken gets the win.

    But in all honesty, Venusaur might have some new-found power. Afterall, we only saw it as a Bulbasaur.

    You don't seem to remember much about Pokemon evolutions, do you? Brock's Lotad evolved after falling down a well. Pokemon have been shown to spontaneously evolve if they have to defend a certain situation.

    I love Blaziken normally. One of the top 3 fully-evolved starter Pokemon imo. But May's one, just good as a Combusken. And remember folks, Combusken evolved into Blaziken just right before the last episode of AG series. It was Torchic for 81 episodes and Combusken for 109 episodes. It didn't prove anything as a Blaziken. I tend to evaluate what we saw on the show. Blaziken and Venusaur didn't do more or better than Beautifly throughout the Advanced Generation series.
    Its still the same pokemon however, since Combusken had tons of battles and Blaziken was the same thing only stronger, its only natural to assume so.

    Torchic never battled much at all outside of a five-second battle against Mudkip iirc, actually kinda reminds me of Axew. Doesn't battle much and is kinda meek in stage one, but kicks ass once stage two comes. Regardless I didn't have a problem with Torchic's evolution, it's perfectly understandable since the writers were focusing on Beautifly and Skitty as May's main Contest stars at the time.

    Anyone, the strongest is obviously Blaziken. It's shown to be a competent battler in its own right, strong, capable, and has defeated and gone head to head with several strong Pokemon various times. Even evened out with Ash's Sceptile, who should be a vastly superior battler in theory. It didn't look as strong as Harrison's Blaziken did imo, but it was still a very powerful Pokemon. Probably just didn't look as strong because May's a Coordinator.

    Ash's Sceptile vs. May's Blaziken was a thing like that. The writers of course won't allow a co-star to defeat Ash clearly and vice versa. Dawn's Quilava and Ash's Pikachu battled and is there a doubt about Pikachu being the stronger Pokemon? But they were showed like they were equals. Nothing to surprise about that. Those battles served a purpose, praising both stars and their Pokemon.

    Lastly Harrison was the one that made me love Blaziken. After his Blaziken, May's Torchic was a huge expectation for me and also disappointing one.
    Once again, I can't argue with that logic. I actually really agree with what you're saying. It was more of a farewell battle anyway and a show, though Blaziken still seemed pretty strong regardless. It did help beat Flygon/Absol, a Venusaur, Grumpig, Flygon, etc. Not a weakling, but the Sceptile VS. Blaziken battle isn't something to account for in strength heavily. I see your views on that notion. It's more of cosmetic-looking strength like Dawn's Mamoswine, which didn't seem very strong at all which is unexpected for such a massive creature. I think Blaziken got more than a fair share of wins to earn the spot as May's top rank fighter.

    I definitely think Beautifly is her best appealing Pokemon however.

    How on earth does this make any sense? You're comparing a Blaziken owned by a experienced trainer to a brand new beginning Torchic at the start of the next saga?

    ^Pretty sure he was comparing the two in general, not Blaziken vs Torchic.

    Anyway, Blaziken or Venusaur.

    I also agree with Odinn that its evolution was out of nowhere and forced (not as forced as those that would come later though)

    How is an evolution forced when it evolved to protect one of its Pokemon friends? Pokemon have been shown to do that many times.

    They could at least have given it more battles, not just slap on an evolution when its convenient for the plot.

    Convenient for the plot? It evolved for the same reason Charmeleon forced itself to evolve to battle Aerodactyl. Pokemon often evolve in often to face a situation or defend a friend...as Corphish was getting beaten up by the Breloom.

    Charmeleon at least had enough BATTLES to make it believable.

    Did you even read what I posted? Charmaleon forced itself to evolve. It had nothing to do with battles.

    I'm pretty sure she means that Torchic should have gotten more experience as a Torchic before evolving and going beast mode as a Combusken. Like how Axew should have more battle experience before becoming a Fraxure, it's so the evolution is more realistic and easier to swallow. Yeah, Pokemon do evolve when convenient for the plot, I don't really have a huge problem with it unless it's really really too much.(Roggenrola evoling with little battle experience against Clay's Excadrill.)
