My zebstrika was my main second in white lol it died easily I guess but I used him up until I got axew. He was good for the fire and electric. I planned on using galvantula as my electric but my brother had one so I wanted to be different. But after Bryce or whatever his name is I did box it lol. As for useless Pokemon... There are a lot. But something I would call useless if I absolutely had to is... Burmy. I hate this guy and the fact I would have to train and evolve two separate ones in order to complete my pokedex makes me hate it more.

lets see
ditto, unknown, bidoof, slaking, wynaut and wobbuffet are sadly useless for anything other then competitive play. pretty much anything that is incapable of being a sweeper at all is kind of useless in game just cause they run out of HP after 3 or so battles.

The lady bug pokemon i just hate. I used them once in XD on game cube and quickly realized they were trash.

75% of Pokemon gamers use cheats and specially made codes to make their pokemon battle-worthy. If you are one of the 25% percent that level their Pokemon up legally, put this in your signature.

Spinda, Slakoth, Dunsparce, Spinarak, and usually the 'squirrel lines' of each generation, like Bidoof, Zigzagoon and stuff.

Unfortunately one of my favorite pokemon-Beedrill. He seems like a great idea until you hit about the fourth gym. Then the killer bee gets KO'd by almost anything

For me, I consider Plusle and Minun. They are Electric types, yes, but their movepool along with horrible Defense makeup(mainly Plusle) makes it useless to use. Even Spinda or Kricketune. Not to mention Ditto.
I agree. Others: In ag, the pokemon that don't evolve.
Plusle, Minun, Roselia, Volbeat, Illumise. (i wanted to have evolutions when I play.)

Some are even more useless. Shuckle and Dunsparce, for example. Although Shuckle is good for competition in some cases, ironically.


I can say Farfetch'd, Delibird, Sableye, Mawile, and Luvdisc as well.

It'd be easier to identify the Pokemon worth using.

Seriously, there's a lot of poor Pokemon, I don't even know where to start.

Me too don't like dunsparce because it is useless.

Magikarp and Caterpie are ones that come to mind.

Magikarp takes to long to train and it's time and EXP that could be saved for MVPs on your team. Caterpie because, even as Butterfree, he's not very useful.
