    Slaking.

    Because of his first form and last evolution's ability, Truant, most people don't even bother to try and train him. But if we look at his BST, he has better stats than some legendary Pokemon. So training him might be hard, but in the end, it's totally worth it.

      I'd definitely agree with Jz on Slaking. I don't know of any others that make sense like Slaking does, though. :P

        Cacturne & Slaking. Cacturne is just a personal favourite & Slaking is pretty obvious. (See LilJZ's post)

          Grumpig. I mean, it's pretty useful and no one uses it.

            IMO I think the most underrated would have to be Dusclops, I've fought my bro with one and knocked out 2 or 6 of his haxxed final evolutions. Dusclops is a great wall and stalls pretty well

              Was gonna say, I've used Breloom a number of times when restarting RSE, it's awesome. Also agree that Slaking is underrated, though I still don't think I'd ever bother to train one myself. Meh.

                Yeah I've used Breloom a couple times he's on my Emerald team, Lv.62 like everyone else xD
                And yeah like Breezy, Slaking is underrated but I've never trained one xD

                Manectric.

                It looks badass, has good Speed and Special Attack, but it's sadly overlooked in favor of other Electrics.

                  Breloom is a good Pokémon.

                  Manectric is my go-to Electric Pokémon in RSE. It's the only decent Electric Pokémon in the game! Magneton sucks, sadly.

                  I don't see people using Walrein much, it's a great Pokémon for a playthrough since it's resilient and has good typing.

                    They're both Psychic and both REALLY easy to train due to the fact you need to trade someone to obtain them.

                    Their only flaw is their base HP. It ranges between 90-140 MAX when level 45-55.

                      I would have to say that Tropius is one of the more underrated Pokemon of the 3rd gen. Most people (myself included), used Tropius as an HM slave, just because it was able to learn a majority of the HM moves, and was easily accessible at about the mid-point of the game. It actually has a pretty decent movepool, though, and has the same base stats as Breloom (who's been mentioned a few times already in this thread).

                        I want to try using Tropius now! But I've already got a Shroomish on the Emerald rerun. Not sure if Manectric is as underrated as some - I've always seen it as quite a useful team member.

                          Slaking is really brutal. His overall base stats with Attack being 160 makes Whitney's Miltank look like a Magikarp.

                            I'd say Cacturne because it can seriously be put to good use and is a decent battler.

                              Choice Band Slaking hurts like a mofo; you have to be like Swami with your predictions though.

                              The problem with Tropius is that it doesn't have Spore to set up with and its Grass/Flying typing is weaker overall than Breloom's Grass/Fighting.

                                Slaking is annoying, no offence to the big guy. It's a big giant ogre thing (Sounds like me ...) that always misses a turn because of truant.

                                Breloom underrated? It's OU in competitive play these days, is it not? lmao

                                Anyway, I'll go with Altaria. It's specially pretty bulky and a decent special attacker. More people should use it. It's totally cuddly too. Can't go wrong with an in-game set of Flamethrower, Ice Beam, Fly, and Dragon Claw/Pulse. Good stuff.

                                  I would say Toakrol is under rated as I do not see it in any teams anywhere especially on Smogeon or however it's spelled.

                                  Zangoose IMO, most people I know look down on him, but he's fairly quick, has brutal attack and most of all, he learns swords Dance at such an early level.

                                    Plusle and Minun, because Final Fantasy IV.

                                    Actually Plusle and Minun are very useful in terms of double battles. Because of their abilities, they're the least obvious Pikachu clone despite being the same color as Pikachu, even better than Marill (albeit "Pikablu.")

                                    Shiftry is one, it has reasonable stats and a fairly diverse movepool. It may not be as good as some but it is pretty awesome (especially as of Gen V).

                                    Castform because as I have said before it is hugely diverse, doesn't have terrible stats and sunny castform can deal X5 damage with weatherball.

                                    Walrein - It can take a beating, has good typing, good stats and has a pretty decent movepool.
