Pokemon Go has been facing a steep decline as the game is losing millions of players every week. The players are now frustrated by the lack of new content, which is one of the main reasons behind the game’s downfall.
However, there is still a lot of hope among the fans as they are eagerly waiting for Gen 2 of Pokemon Go. Gen 2 will have trading, versus battles, and legendary Pokemon, which will make it far more interesting.
So, as everyone is getting geared up for the Gen 2 version of Pokemon Go, we have compiled a list of the 10 best Pokemon from the next game. The list is based on their combined base stats and maximum base CP. The list, however, doesn’t consider legendary Pokemon.
The first entry to this list is Meganium, which is the final evolution of Chikorita. Meganium is a grass type Pokemon from Johto. Because Meganium is a grass type Pokemon, it can be very handy while fighting against the Vaporeons.

The next Pokemon to feature in this list is Octillery. Octillery is the final evolved form of Remoraid and is an water type Pokemon.
