It's clear that the evolved form of Pokemon have a far higher CP cap (and it looks like minimum too) but it would also seem there is a difference between different Pokemon.

For example I have an Oddish at 184 CP which is at 50% of it's cap, and I also have a Ratata at 185 CP but it is far closer to its cap, around 90%.

Which Pokemon have the highest CP caps?

    It is also worth noting that CP cap is level related – Dylan Madisetti Jul 11 '16 at 1:10
  • @Timelord64 as Dylan said CP cap is related to level, so people with higher levels will be able to screenshot higher level pokemon. My question was asking which pokemon have higher cp than others. – Aequitas Jul 11 '16 at 1:52
  • @Aequitas I suppose they all have different formulas for min and max, which is a function of their level. And the actual power is just determined by the percentage full the bar is (it sounds like you may understand this). I don't think there's very much data that's been mined in the way of figuring this out, but I assure you in about a week's time you'll be able to find all that information on a wiki somewhere – Cruncher Jul 11 '16 at 3:19
  • @Aequitas I'm also unsure if this game has IV/EV like other pokemon games, and if some pokemon caught of the same type would actually have higher caps. – Cruncher Jul 11 '16 at 3:20
  • So far out of all my pokemon it looks like rapidash would have the highest, I have a ponyta with a cap of around 700, so after it's evolved it looks like it will be far higher than anything else I have so far. But then again maybe when I evolve it, the cap doesn't increase that much – Aequitas Jul 12 '16 at 2:42

Table below in "Max Total CP" order.

(I included the table below so there is no need to jump to a new link, or incase the original is inaccessible.)

As you do powerups after finding a wild Pokemon, some multiple better, thus being stronger or top tier pokemon.

Multiple your character level by CP per Powerup (aka, multiplier) to see approximately how much their CP would go up.

Ndex is their Pokédex number

  • how does it come that I have 2 pokemon of the same kind both maxed their CP bar but having diferent CP value if the table is correct? – Zaibis Jul 17 '16 at 16:15
  • @Zaibis depending on the CP when it is caught in the wild, a Pokemon can have higher or lower max CP. – Eric D. Johnson Jul 18 '16 at 17:18
  • I find it kind of lame that Vaporeon and other Eeveelutions are so high up the list when they're so easy to acquire. – DasBeasto Jul 29 '16 at 15:37

The more CP a pokemon gains per level up should have a higher CP cap. Here is a partial CP tier list: https://www.reddit.com/r/TheSilphRoad/comments/4se870/pokemon_cp_tier_list/

I believe the reason for this is because all pokemon gain the same percentage of max CP per power up so by this logic the more CP a pokemon gains per power up should have a higher max CP.
