Thought Alakazam was the king in Gen I, since he was weak to nothing except the pitiful Bug type and was both a Special Attacker and wall since Special was just one stat at the time.
Normal type was the best offensive typing back in Gen I. *Also because there weren't that many Pokemon that could speed Taurus or had fighting moves. Speed influenced criticals, so Taurus' critical rate was pretty damn high.
I don't really think gen 1 had a king, the meta then was hilariously unbalanced. Gen 2 goes to Snorlax. Gen 3 was probably Tyranitar. Gen 4 was Heatran. Gen 5: Politoed. Gen 6 is Aegislash atm, but there's a lot of time left.
I'll think of something creative to put here another time.
