My least-used types? Ghost, Poison, and Bug: I keep 1-2 of each just in case I need them for gym battles, but otherwise those types tend to gather dust in their PC boxes.

Normal type, they don't usually have any advantage over any other type, soo I just prefer to use some more specialized pokémon. The last one I used was a Kangaskhan in FireRed.

Edit: I'm talking about mono normal type, I'm fine with normal/flying and other combinations.

I'm not that keen on Rock types. Poison and Ground are probably closely tied in second. I just prefer Pokemon that have predominantly special moves, like Fire, Water, and Electric. And I don't always think to have a Rock type or something. Don't get me wrong though! There are some amazing Rock types out there that I like, like Nosepass, Corsola, and Tyranitar. :3

Rock type, as they don't suit my style. Attacks are low accuracy. They are SO slow. Too much in Def, not enough attack power. Most of them are boring brown.

Steel are almost just as bad for many of the same reasons, but scissor saves them.

Hmm...I'm sure there's many types I don't use especially often, but the only deliberate ones are Bug - I don't like bugs in reality, so tbh the idea of most of these things scares me, although I'm partial to the occasional Scizor or Kricketot - and Poison. Often because it'll be dual-typed with Bug and therefore awfully vulnerable, but also because I generally don't like the design, especially the snakes. Like Bug it's a pretty naff offensive type too. I prefer to just fight dark-types and hit psychics really hard.
The only Steel-type I really use is Lucario, and sometimes Scizor. Although I should have made an effort and raised a Metagross on Emerald some time before now really.

The only Steel types I use regularly are the same two I've gone out of my way to breed: Lucario and Skarmory. Both have a strong secondary type, both have impressive movepools, and both just plain look cool onscreen. (If Game Freak expands the "ridable Pokémon" code from X/Y to let players ride a giant bird instead of being carried like helpless prey...I would love to see my avatar flying cross-country on a Skarmory's back.)

I'd have to admit that my own real-life fear of dangerous/spooky creatures influences my type choice, too: it's a rare zoologist in the real world who enjoys working with bugs or poisonous species day to day, and people in the Pokémon universe probably fear them just as badly. Ghosts probably aren't real in this world, but traditional ghost stories typecast them as evil spirits who hate the living...and who'd want to make friends with something like that?

Bug type, definitely, and normal.
Bug sucks, and normal, well, there are plenty of other, better pokemon.

I almost never use Poison-types...

I just find no use in them, considering their moves are only super effective on one type, and they don't have the best Pokemon either.

I usually have the most trouble finding good grass and fighting types to use... They're usually so few and far between, it's actually very hard to find one that's worthwhile, without choosing a grass starter.

Just the usual suspects of bug, grass and poison. Nothing too special.

I.. never use Electric types. They may be pretty good sometimes but I honestly just don't see a use for them when I play through the games. :< //apart from Competitive things at least but I rarely do that so.

Other than that, yeah, Poison and Rock are two of my other least used types.

I would say Ice, Dark and Rock types would be my least used. I haven't used any of them recently in a main team.

The main problem with Ice types is that they usually only start appearing late in the game and by that time my team is full.

Also I only use Normal type when it's paired with Flying, that might change for the sixth gen though since I really like Helioptile....but even then it might lose it's normal type when it evolves.

I never use Ghost types, even though they're usually pretty good in competitive terms. (I don't normally battle competitively) Normal is not my cup of tea, either. Rock is also on this list, but Tyranitar and Archeops are exceptions.

I would've mentioned Poison here but I realized that I do use a lot of Poison-type Pokemon (because of secondary typing), including Roserade, Nidoking, and Crobat.

Steel types, although I would always love to expirement with them more than the occasional rock type since they have more defense.

The closest I came to using a Steel-type was a Skarmory trade I made between a close friend of mine in Ruby/Sapphire.

I don't use Steel types often because they are weak to Fire and Ground. I don't like the type combinations most Steel Pokemon have.

I don't think I've ever used a bug except the beginning of a game. I rarely use dragon.
