    What do you guys do with useless Pokemon (such as Dunsparce) that clog up your PC? I know that abandoning them is a possible solution but I always feel really, really bad doing that.

            Keep them for trades. Someone is always looking for a pokemon that you don't like, always. I breed and trade them just like all the others, I just don't use them in battle. Though honestly, I don't find any pokemon useless because of that.

                Or you could trade them over Wonder Trade if they really are a hassle.

                  I keep them in a box called 'Extra' and that's if I have a double of that Pokemon. I organize my Pokemon in boxes by their National Dex number...

                    I release them after I have caught them as I only keep pokemon I want to use in battle.

                      Since Wonder Trade exists in X and Y, I always always send 'em over to someone. I know what you get back might not be that good, the possibility of getting a Pokemon you actually want is better than just releasing unwanted Pokemon.

                        (god, I now realize that people hate dunsparce ) I usually only catch pokemon I like, but if there's a useless one that a friend wants, I'll be more than happy to catch it just to trade it.

                          I keep them in my boxes and use them for casual battling every once in a while.

                            Useless? If by that, you mean 'partners I seldom use', I just leave em in the PC, the lowest levels, when I sort my pc (excluding the earliest editions, cuz sorting is frustrating when you withdraw/deposit for 10 min straight) I put all the lowest levels at the front, and sort from there. The further down the Boxes you go, you'll end up seeing my legends and my strongest partners, excluding the lucky six I use on an all-too regular basis.

                              Well, I'm going to have to say that I love using the underused and really awful Pokémon as my main team members. I dunno, call it some weird part of me, but I love using terrible Pokémon, I consider it a challenge and a real huge amount of dedication worth giving.

                              I only catch Pokemon I plan on using. I may not use them immediately, but I do try to use them at some point in the game, whether for HMs or Pokedex purposes. That being said, I don't really end up with "useless" Pokemon in my PC.

                                I evolve them to last stage then leave them to PC.
                                Still, before leaving them to PC, they were useful. So, no hard feelings.

                                  There we go, finally someone else kinda does what I do! I don't feel so left out. Just remember that Feebas evolves into an amazing Milotic. I always wanted a Milotic. Maybe one of these days I'll use Feebas. Either way ... somehow I got sidetracked and your post reminded me about that. So thanks~

                                  I still catch them and evolve them for Pokedex data, then dump them in the PC.

                                    Blasphemous, Dunsparce is awesome!

                                    ...Why couldn't they give him an evolution!

                                    I just don't catch them or box them forever, or release them so they're registered on my dex as captured.

                                      I catch them so they can register in my Pokedex, in the next nearby town I release them back in the wild.

                                      Majority of my boxes are empty, I just keep the Pokemon I will need for trade (between one of my Pokemon games to another - as I don't have WiFi), or breeding

                                      Or for rotation, we can only have 6 Pokemon at a time, sometimes I like to give other Pokemon a try so I keep them around, the Pokemon I like I will leave temporarily in the PC and give the new Pokemon a try. If it doesn't work out with the new Pokemon it will get released back in the wild.

                                      Some of the Pokémon I catch early on I don't like to release for some reason. =(

                                      But others i'll get rid of eventually if necessary. If i'm trying to complete my Pokédex or something, then my boxes will be pretty packed.
