What Pokemon did you at one point not care for but eventually warmed up to/loved

So, are there any Pokemon that you used to hate or simply not care for, but later on you warmed up to them or even grow to love them?

Two Pokemon like that come to mind for me. I used to not care very much for Jumpluff or the Poli-line, but then two things happened.

I read Pokemon Adventures, and Poliwhirl/Wrath became some of my favorite Gen 1 Pokemon.

And secondly, I played Colosseum, where Jumpluff's high speed + stun spore made me love her.

Slightly related, I used to HATE Manetric. I still don't like him, but after seeing his base stats weren't AWFUL I decided that he's at least respectable.

I'm not easily impressed; I'm usually oblivious to whatever's in front of me.
Stunfisk is the epitome of monstrous majestic legendary creatures that spew fire.

This.
I didn't like him at all in B/W, but used him my first playthrough of W2. Really liked him on my team, was really useful.

I used to think Gengar was overrated, but it's actually pretty cool. It doesn't outclass similar Ghost-types for just one move (unlike that piece of s***, Starmie), and its strategies are pretty interesting as well.

Oshawott. The anime made me love him, and his evo forms are really cool. I'll never care for the haters that say his last evo form 'doesn't make sense' though.
