Pokemon GO: Best Balanced Non-Legendary Pokemon To Catch

This section will cover the most popular Pokemon used by Trainers, but not just that, their Ranks below are also based from how well they perform when attacking rival gyms and how dependable they are for defending a team's gyms. In simple terms, they are the best of both worlds!

Important Note: 
   - MewTwo is probably the best Pokemon out there at the moment, but because of it's rarity, I will not include him here, including Mew and those Legendary Birds: Articuno, Moltres and Zapdos.
Pokemon GO: Top Best Balanced Pokemon
- Top Balanced "Off & Def" Pokemon
(and Recommended Pokemon To Catch!) -

Rank #1: Pidgey, Caterpie, and Weedle!
   - Hahaha! Yup, sure, they can't attack or defend at all but they will probably grab the top of our list as most recommended and favored Pokemon to catch, as the title says hehe. ^^,
   - Anyways, if you've been ignoring them from the start, then maybe you might want to reconsider! These 3 Pokemon can be evolved by only using 12 Candies (3 Candies per catch), and evolving a Pokemon will yield 500 XP (x2 with Lucky Egg activated), so if you want to level up fast, you also need them as your "evolution slaves".
