Back when I played Red/Yellow and Gold, most people at my school used a lot of of the same Pokemon. When word got out that a certain Pokemon was good, people would try it.
However, There were Pokemon that no one would use.
I'd like to hear from you all what these Pokemon are nowadays; Unanimously, locally, worldwide, whatever. I would prefer the ones from Gold downwards since I have no knowledge of the ones that came out after, but since this isn't the corresponding board (those boards have less activity than this one) any that you can think of are appreciated.
If you are wondering why, I'm...Putting together a challenge using these forgotten Pokemon. My knowledge of Pokemon is severely outdated lol. Back then the ones I can think of off the top of my head (and their evolutions) were Tangela, Mr. Mime, Beedrill, Magnemite, Farfetch'd, Lickitung, and Electabuzz.

Lumineon. The most "who gives a damn" water type I can think of. It's not cool, not memorable, and not useful for anything other that being a surf slave... and there are a billion better candidates. --- I'm a soldier in the war against fanboys. My only weapon?

Luvdisc and Lumineon are a must. Probably top 5 worst in the game. --- A great battle: http://replay.pokemonshowdown.com/ou-97811425 Defensive Xerneas: http://replay.pokemonshowdown.com/ubers-87580599

It's got a decent enough movepool, two good abilities in Storm Drain and Swift Swim, and it's by and far my favorite 'fish' pokemon. Though to be fair, I have a certain fondness for tropical fish.
Maractus gets my vote, TC. I love its design, but it's very definitely Cacturne's sad cousin. It isn't even immune to sandstorm damage...IT LIVES IN A DESERT! --- Currently playing: Pokemon Y (Name: Ensei), Xenoblade Chronicles, 3DS FC: 2277-7562-5299 Friend Safari: Ghost @ Drfiblim, Lampent Steel types are the best!
