PokéBase - Pokémon Q&A

I am looking through some Pokemon to use in any game really, so I was just curious.

What does "stat wise" mean? Does the answer need a separate section for every generation?
What i mean is, the strongest pokemon for every type
BTW no megas
What does "strongest" mean? Does the answer need a separate section for every generation?
No, for each type. So, lets say the highest bst for water type is magikarp.(obviously isn't) That is the "strongest". Also, no repeating pokemon, so if metagross is best steel, don't make it psychic too.
Is this including legendaries?
Not sure if "best Pokemon" is the best wording for what you're trying to ask about
Maybe you should leave out legendaries too
