At the time of writing, the Pokemon with the highest CP is Slaking, with a whopping 5010 at Trainer level 50! This hulking Normal type is a solid choice for Gym Defense, and if you come across a full-strength one, it’ll take a long time to wear down. Excluding Mega-evolutions, 

Slaking is the only Pokemon to pass the legendary 5000 CP mark, but there are plenty that come close:

  • Regigigas (Normal) – 4913 CP
  • Mewtwo (Psychic) – 4724 CP
  • Groudon (Ground) – 4652 CP
  • Kyogre (Water) – 4652 CP
  • Dialga (Steel/Dragon) – 4565 CP
  • Reshiram (Fire/Dragon) – 4565 CP
  • Zekrom (Electric/Dragon) – 4565 CP
  • Palkia (Water/Dragon) – 4512 CP
  • Meloetta (Psychic/Normal) – 4490 CP

What is the highest Mega-evolved CP in Pokemon Go?

Although the form is temporary, Mega-evolved Pokemon can have far higher CP than their regular counterparts. Primal Kyogre and Primal Groudon have the highest, at a tremendous 6672 CP.

Several other Mega Evolutions break the 5000 mark:

  • Mega Rayquaza (Dragon/Flying) – 6458 CP
  • Mega Tyranitar (Rock/Dark) – 6045 CP
  • Mega Salamence (Dragon/Flying) – 5688 CP
  • Mega Latios (Dragon/Psychic) – 5661 CP
  • Mega Latias (Dragon/Psychic) – 5428 CP
  • Mega Gyarados (Water/Dark) – 5332 CP
  • Mega Gardevoir (Psychic/Fairy) – 5101 CP
  • Mega Charizard Y (Fire/Flying) – 5037 CP

Those are the highest CP Pokemon in Pokemon GO. Although a high CP number is significant, things like Type Advantage, Weather Boosts, and Movesets are arguably more important. As long as you’re keeping the CP of your best Pokemon as high as you can, you’ll be formidable in Gyms and any PvE content.

What is CP in Pokemon GO?

CP is short for Combat Power, and although not a perfect metric, it gives a great idea of how strong a Pokemon is. Generally, without type advantages, the Pokemon with the highest CP should win, although other factors are important. CP also scales based on the Trainer level. For example, a Level 50 Trainer will always have a Pokemon with a higher CP than a Level 40 Trainer.
