Every gen, there's always a gimmick Pokemon. These Pokemon exist solely centered around a certain gimmick. They usually aren't that good Pokemon, they're really only there because they have some funny moves and/or abilities which makes them different from the rest of the Pokemon in the game. Some managed to actually be good with their gimmicks (Baton pass Smeargle, or breeding ditto and of course Wobbuffet). Others are just bad.
Some like Spinda aren't worth mentioning because their gimmick is only aesthetic. I give Unown an exception.
So who's your favorite?

I suppose Choice Specs on an Unown are rather non-restrictive... --- I hack life. Got a Wii U launch night!

Does Porygon have a gimmick that he is centered around? It seems like a fairly normal Pokemon to me.

Porygon is unique in description, but he's not gimmicky in practice. --- Posted from my Xbox360 with 360FAQS v1.1

Then I would say no. Tons of Pokemon have weird descriptions.
