No, it's not a topic for the betas of Metal Generation Pokemon, nor is it for well made fakes. It's for the real Pokemon that are a bit "Forgotten". When I say that, I mean they aren't used in battles, not discussed by people etc. In this topic we will fight for their rights... *cough* we will discuss about them and say our opinions for which Pokemon are so "forgotten".

---------

My opinions:

Omastar
Kabuto
Tyrogue
Hypno
Drowzee
Other that won't come out of my mind xD

Omastar and Hypno are both awesome UU Pokemon, and I do agree they both need more love.

Farfetch'd is another one people seem to at least want to forget.

Another forgotten Pokemon is... Charizard and Pikachu XD Just Kidding :P
Hmm.. to be honest Raticate is also so rare to see used in a battle or in the Anime/Manga. And yeah, I agree that Farfetch'd is another UU even though it looks so cute and strange and funny itself :P Well, to be honest Farfetch'd is a rare Pokemon itself since according to the Anime people were eating it too much.

I think that a majorly forgotten Pokemon is Raichu. Yes, Raichu. And it's because of Ash and his Pikachu. No one cares that Raichu are all-around better and cuddlier! I've had a Raichu on my teams since I first got the games. It's always been one of my two absolute favorite Pokemon. And no one seems to know it exsists!

I'll have to agree with Nagoyaka Aikouka about Raichu. Everyone seems to like Pikachu more <.<

Other Pokémon no one uses and that rarely appear in the manga/anime or anywhere else are Cradily, Dunsparce and Yanma, they are all awesome UU Pokémon, but no one (apart from me =P) ever uses them D=

I also agree about Omastar and Hypno *nods*.

Aipom and Ledyba/Ledian are also Pokémon no one cares about and never has either. But I absolutely wub those little fuzzy wuzzies (that so didn't sound like me O.o) <3

Omastar was thought to be extinct but were found, Ash, Misty, Brock & Professor Oak agreed to keep their existance a secret. Since Jessie, James & Meowth also know about them they should report it to Team Rocket headquarters, but probably won't. Kabuto is also nearly extinct and would be as hard to find, when come across, they prefer to be left alone.

To me Raticate and Shuckle are forgotten but there is more. I'm not saying that because I have them both in level 100.

Magneton and Electabuzz both better electric types than pikachu

Gloom is very awesome too. Magby, Elekid, Smoochum and Pichu are awesome baby pokemon.

But I will admit, some pokemon are best forgotten.

Banette, Tropius, Altaria, and Carvanha seem to be among the Pokemon that everyone overlooks. Poor Banette. :(

You know who I don't see? Sableye. The guy has no weakness if the foe hasn't used Foresight or Odor Sleuth. Plus which, it has a decent move pool and decent physical power.

Since when has Magneton been a forgotten Pokémon?
Every 5th standard Netbattle OU team you have has one.
You know who I don't see? Sableye. The guy has no weakness if the foe hasn't used Foresight or Odor Sleuth. Plus which, it has a decent move pool and decent physical power.
I agree about Sableye being horribly neglected ;-; But sadly, with defenses like that, you can't do much D=

Yeah, Sableye, although a dual Dark/Ghost type, does have a poor defence.
What about Sandshrew and Tentacool? Once I've caught them, they mainly spend the rest of their time the PC boxes. Poor guys.:'(

I say Dusparce, Swinub, and Farfetch'd are the most forgotten.

Yesh, Swinub (and Piloswine, too) need more love ;-;

The reason why no one trains Sandshrew is because Dugtrio is better than Sandslash in every way, I wub Sandslah, though.
As for Tentacool, I have absolutely no idea why no one uses it, it has above average HP and awesome Speed and Special defense, plus the ability to learn Mirror Coat and Rapid Spin, both extremely useful in competitive battling.

I don't exactly agree about the Swinub, Most people think hes cute and use him, but he never comes in the anime thr uv got a point. and i agree with DUsparce and Farfetch'd! Poor pokemon... Tentacools left out too i agree and lets not forget Zubat! Everyone HATES him! I do too actually :( He drives me so mad..

ITentacools left out too i agree and lets not forget Zubat! Everyone HAES him!

I agree when you say hate him but he's definetly not in the category of forgotten pokemon. You always see it in the caves and such in the beggining of the game and evrey other cave after that. I even remember it's annoying little screech. Also as well as Tentacool. No one I ever know hasn't seen at least one tentacool when their in the ocean.

Their evolutions are nice though. Crobat and Tentacruel are used in my teams.

A Porygon floated across the screen in either the fourth or fifth movie.

It's sad to think that this occurs. But I imagine with so many of them to remember, some are bound to be forgotten. Most of the suggestions seem to be of the intial 'pokedex' of 151. I guess it's because they were introduced to us such a long time ago. There's always 'new' of 'favourites' to think of. It's werid to see the hype for those that had a minimal following disintigrate completely. I feel sorry for the likes of Jumpluff and Kakuna. I hopeone day they get their limelight back.

Well, most of the forgotten pokemon are the early evolutions and the ones from Gold, Silver and Crystal. Mostly because they don't learn really good moves. But here are the ones I think are most forgotten.

Ariados, Marill and evos, Caterpie and evos, Weedle with evos, Chimecho (mainly too hard to catch), Girafarig, Gligar, Oddish and evos and a bunch more.

I agree with the generalisation, but butterfree is still a fairly popular pokemon. Girafarig too.

I think the anime plays a large part in the popularity of most Pokemon. A Pokemon that appears more often in different episodes of the anime is more likely to be popular amongst fans of Pokemon. That's just my guess. XP

Drowzee comes to mind for me as well. In my old Silver version I would rarely catch a Drowzee, though I never thought why, it's a perfectly good fighter and with Hypnosis and Confusion - what's not to like? o_o; It could also be its appearance...I mean it's not exactly the best looking Pokemon. XD;

Tangela is rather ignored as well. The poor little ball of vines, I feel kind of bad for it~ ;; I can only think of a few times where Tangela was seen in the episodes, but it was only as a minor character and not the main Pokemon for that particular eppie. o.o

It seems like a waste to have hundreds of Pokemon characters and like half of them go unnoticed, meh~

The last time I seen Tangela was when Erika used it. In a gym battle.

Kind of true because since like R/S/E and FR/LF came out people have gotten into those Pokemon and have left S/G/C pokemon outta the way. I still like S/G/C so I play them and like I said in my other post I am playing silver now... well I did like a little while ago cause I am posting on these forums..

I love Tentacool and Tentacruel. They have great attack, great defense, and plus they're Water/Poison.

Surf, Ice Beam, Blizzard and Sludge Bomb. Don't tell me that's not a good move list.

~Strawberry Vulpix~

I don't think it's a point of 'not caring' about them. I think the majority of people over look them. I agree, the anime does play a part in the popularity of certain pokemon. If team rocket or Ash and the gang have a particular pokemon, it does tend to get more notice. Saying that Lickitung still is relatively unpopular. Yet Pokemon like Jynx, because of the uproar someone caused about it's appearance, the guys at HQ want us to forget it. u.u It's so sad u.u

Raichu, Zangoose, Shuckle, Paras, Parasect, Spearow, Shelder, Cloyster, those are the ones I always consider "Forgotten", but thats just me.

It is by far one of the best common bird pokemon. I use it all the time.

Same for Dunsparce.
