* Anyone with the Coloseum bonus disk and either Ruby or Sapphire can get themselves a Jirachi as soon as they have the Pokedex. A MasterOfAll statwise, only ''two'' weaknesses, a great movepool, ''and'' with an ability that increases the chances of side effects from attacks, it proves an invaluable addition to any party. Even better, if you have multiple game packs, you can one Jirachi a pack and trade them all to one game. Hello, full team of legendaries before the first gym!

* ''Ultra Sun and Moon'' let you catch Inkay just outside Professor Kukui's lab, and it can make the early game a breeze. It comes with the Contrary ability, which turns the million-and-a-half stat-reducing moves you'll be dealing with into stat boosts, and Reflect, which halves the damage dealt by Physical moves at a point where almost all the attacks you'll be dealing with are Physical. And a couple levels after that, it learns Foul Play, which is miles stronger than just about anything you'll have access to at that point. Its signature move, Topsy-Turvy, is also obtained relatively early on and is useful against any buff-happy opponents you come across; considering the games' storyline, you'll have plenty of opportunities to use it.

* Bulbasaur is widely considered to be the easiest of the three starters to use for a reason. He's a Poison type, which gives him resistance to many common early-game Pokemon (and immunity to the status effect of the same name), evolves relatively early (Level 12 as opposed to 16 for the other two starters) and can carve through the first two gyms' Pokemon like a hot knife through butter. He starts to get outclassed once Psychic, Ice and Flying types become more common, but for much of the early game he's a steamroller.

* Before even beating the first Gym in ''Ruby, Sapphire, and Emerald'' you can get your hands on a Nincada, who evolves into the decent Ninjask at level 20. If you have a spare Poké Ball and less than 6 Pokémon on you when it evolves you also get your hands on the LethalJokeCharacter Shedinja, whose Wonder Guard ability makes it immune to any attacks that aren't [[ElementalRockPaperScissors super effective against it]]. Several of the Gym Leaders and a large number of trainers cannot deal damage to Shedinja because they lack the proper moves, making it pretty powerful.

* In the same area, you can catch Alolan Grimer. This bucktoothed blob starts off with Bite as its main attack - a move that, with Grimer's Dark-type, reaches 90 base power - and with the Poison Touch ability, has the potential to poison everything it hits. Its Poison/Dark typing means that it has a single weakness (Ground) which you won't encounter in force until late in the game, and matches up well against most of the various Totem Pokémon. Grimer will start to flag as you hit the later islands... until it evolves into Muk, which naturally learns a plethora of hard-htting moves like Crunch and Gunk Shot, and can use TMs to throw around moves like Fire Blast or Thunderbolt. In ''Ultra Sun and Ultra Moon'', you can even give your Grimer ''Fire Punch'' right after arriving on Akala Island, to give it the edge against Steel-types. Not bad for a pile of melted plastic.

* In ''Ultra Sun and Ultra Moon'' you can encounter Munchlax in normal random encounters, rather than [[ScrappyMechanic waiting for it to spawn under berry trees". Munchlax holds Leftovers, which heals your Pokemon by 1/16th per turn, noticeably enhancing their survivability. You can outfit an entire team with Leftovers fairly easily, reducing the amount of healing items and moves you use. Munchlax is also a solid Pokemon in its own right, is surprisingly tough with Leftovers or Eviolite, and evolves into the immensely powerful Snorlax.

* If you don't mind leveling up a baby Pokemon, Pichu learns Nasty Plot at level 18, which boosts Special Attack by two stages. Pichu should evolve into Pikachu soon later, and if you manage to steal a Light Ball from a wild Pikachu then you'll have a borderline unstoppable setup sweeper by the end of the first island. Early access to Move Tutors in ''Ultra Sun and Ultra Moon'' expand Pikachu's attack options to include Iron Tail and Signal Beam, and like in all games Pikachu learns Thunderbolt at level 26. Pikachu can last you for the rest of the game with smart play.
