Dwebble. My Dwebble had Sturdy at the time, and I leveled it up to give it Stealth Rock. Such a great combination to guarantee one set of entry hazards.

The weakest Pokémon that I've ever taken on a champion with was Mawile. It was at level sixty-seven, and I used it to take on Steven. Mawile was able to defeat only his first Pokémon, and then was taken down by his Aggron instantly with a single Earthquake. I've also taken on Cynthia with a Quagsire in Pokémon Platinum once, but within just a blink of an eye, her Garchomp was able it down by using Dragon Rush.

Used a Sunkern once. That was before I got myself a cozy Sun Stone... he DID give some help against Lance, though. I think he Sunny Day'd the day, and got me ready for the other guys.

Interesting question... Never actually thought about it...
*stat searching*
Zigzagoon as HM Slave and if it doesn't count and need to be someone who actually battled then Pikachu in Yellow.

Kept a Lombre to the end in my first Sapphire playthrough. I never visited the abandoned ship and got a water stone.

For me, it's probably the generic early-game bird Pokemon. I used Pidgeot in Soul Silver, and in terms of BST and the other Pokemon I had (Typhlosion, Gyarados, Ampharos, Machamp, etc) it was probably the 'weakest' out of the bunch. Still did a great job though, with Aerial Ace, Steel Wing, etc.

Ahh it's hard to say I believe. I've gone in with Gloom, Furret, and many other Pokemon that don't have too high of a BST that I'm not quite sure what would have been my 'weakest'. Though I guess it would have to be Cyndaquil that I used in a Challenge not too long ago. I didn't finish the challenge completely but I did beat the Elite Four in the Challenge so it works with this thread I think.

Probably Cradily in Sapphire. It didn't hit too hard, but it still got the job done.

I can't really remember what amount of bad Pokemons I've had, I've probably had so many I can't even remember how many untrained pokemons I've just half trained and just gotten away with it using 1 or 2 main Pokémon...

Anyway, thread reminded me of this:

That would be Arbok in my original run of Pokemon Gold.

I've actually beaten Lance in Pokemon Red with a level 20-something Weepinbell. Lance had taken out my main hitter Pokemon, so I sent out Weepinbell to use a revive. I noticed that Lance's Dragonite, which was currently out at the time, would not whatsoever attack Weepinbell, instead opting to continually use Agility (I think it was Agility). Weepinbell ended up taking out Dragonite, along with about 2 other Pokemon of his. It was a fun time. xD

He also took out 1 of Blue's Pokemon as well, because it wouldn't attack Weepinbell either.

Vibrava in RSE once since I like its design.

Delcatty and Beautifly in another RSE run because they're cute Pokemon.

Wartortle in FRLG and Croconaw in Crystal because I like these middle stage evolutions. I especially prefer Croconaw over Feraligatr.

In my first push through the E4 in Gold, I had a Graveler, Nidorino, and Furret on my team lol.

I've recently used a Dunsparce and Maractus on the same team in BW2. Dunsparce was a beast with Coil though, so i wouldn't call him very weak.

This probably goes to Beautifly. I used one in Platinum. And oh my was that a big mistake. I still used it throughout the whole game... but let's just say its usefulness overall was questionable.

I went all Ash and took a Pikachu to the Hoenn Elite 4. His speed was decent but everything else was pretty bad. The rest of my team was alright though so it didn't really matter. I don't think he even KOed Sealeo in one hit haha.

Oh yes, I know this one. You see, Agility is a Psychic type move and Weepinbell is a Poison type, so the AI thinks Agility will be "super effective" on Weepinbell, without giving respect to the fact that it doesn't deal damage. This is why Haunter, Arbok etc. would be a good choice to beat Dragonite. I also faced this with Venusaur XD

I recently tried to take on the Hoenn Elite Four with just a Magikarp.

Needless to say, it did not end well. Never got past trainer 2 without using others in the team.

1) A trio of ROM hacks [gen1, gen2, gen3] that, aside from the generation, are pretty much identical: You start in Kanto and post-elite four you travel through Johto as it would have been "3 years ago".
2) A demake of Heart Gold / Soul Silver. Possibly using Fire Red as a base.
3) An official Pokémon game, following the standard "gotta catch 'em all" format, but aimed more at the older players.

I know it's cliche, but I took a Level 99 Magikarp.

It knew Tackle, Flail, Splash, and Bounce.

It was an embarrassment to show my Hall of Fame to others.

And it did evolve into a level 100 Gyarados. But it still knows only those four moves...

I've taken a level 100 Magikarp through the Elite Four, with the aide of only one other Pokemon. Granted, that Pokemon was a hacked Spiritomb with Wonder Guard that I got over the GTS, but I felt I had to at least use them a bit before I release them both (and now they're in the Hall of Fame forever!).

Other than that, I have used Butterfree as my main Pokemon numerous times against the Elite Four, which stat wise, is worse than a lot of middle evolutions of Pokemon let alone final ones.

I haven't really thought about it, but that spot would probably go to Mightyena who I've used in almost all of my Hoenn playthroughs just because I love it.
