Pokemon you found to be surprisingly useful in a Nuzlocke run.

Gen 1
Butterfree - a bug type that can learn psychic moves? GG fighting and beast mode psychic types.

Dugtrio - Swift god like speed. The only ground type I managed to catch in the game and was extremely useful against those pesky electrics.

Beedrill - Didn't last long but ultimately helped me out against Erika.

Victrebell - Easily the best in-game grass type IMO. I reluctantly caught a Bellsprout when I was hoping for an Oddish but man was I surprised. Went all the way to the E4 and was one of the last survivors. Blastoise, Victrebell and Magneton.

Gen 2
Geodude line - Whitney's Miltank was the only gym leader I was legit worried about heading into my HG Nuzlocke. I was surprised at how useful Geodude/Graveller were. Miltank was no match for my Geodude who went on to become Graveller and die at the hands of Claire's Kingdra :/

Gen 3
Shiftry - Grass was something I desperately needed and its dark typing only helped me out. Despite its bad stats and meh movepool it survived all the way to the E4 and was one of my hardest hitters.

Gorebyss - Another shocker. Despite how low some of its stats were this thing flourished after my Swampert bit the dust. It was the only water type I captured that was of any use and I couldn't go back and capture anything else :/

Gen 5
Stoutland - Caught a level 2 Lillipup and trained all the way up to the E4. This thing was useful. Crunch and Takedown all the way home. I was surprised it never died and it did so good.

Emolga - This was purely a lucky catch that proved useful for me. I needed an electric type and this little guy delivered.

Whimsicott - This was my wall. Prankster. Drains. Enough said.

Drudigon - Say what you will about its design but I loved having this guy around. Lasted all the way through E4 along with my Ferrothorn and Sawk. Very useful and came in handy when fighting N.

I recently finished a black nuzlocke, and I had a sawk (Which unfortunately died to Grimsley) and a musharna. They proved to be the best members in the nuzlocke.

My wailord was a tank.

It lasted through the whole nuzlocke on emerald, like a boss.

Sawk was so badass. Dat 125 attack. He was freaking useful my entire game. I had a Throh in my B2 Nuzlocke that I captured on Victory Road. He was good, too but his slowness did him in.

Sadly, mine died in the hands of Grimsley's krookodile, and I had to train a conkeldurr for Ghetsis's Hydreigon. Rest in peace, Bert the sawk, you will forever be remembered.

In my White Nuzlocke Leavanny surprised me to no end. I was hoping for a venipede in the pinwheel forest, but ran into a Sewaddle. I decided to catch it since I hadn't caught anything in awhile. The thing made it all the way to the end. Unfortunately it died to a fire blast from Ghetsis' Hydreigon. But damn did she pull through when I most needed it.

Exact opposite for me lol. I wanted a grass type but ended up getting a Venipede. I never used it and I did catch a Ferroseed :D

I remember wanting a Darmanitan or Sandile in Desert Resort and ran into a freaking Sigilyph. Ugh.
