          how about...try using them for once? dunsparce is NOT useless, with coil roost glare it can wreck anything ingame very easily.

          in fact for ingame everything can be used, while competitively every pokemon can be used in their respective tiers as well.

              I keep them in the PC and sometimes I'll find a purpose for them. I had a shiny Meowth in White that I didn't think would be very great for competitive battling or anything like that but I spent time leveling her up and keeping her in my party so she could use her Pickup ability to find items. All depends on the Pokémon. I don't think any are completely useless.

              I never had box problems so I leave them in the box (Team Plasma will find me...)

              When I was younger I just tried catching every Pokemon that I saw and didn't already have, and let a majority of them just sit in the box for eternity.

              Now that I don't really care about completing the Pokedex anymore, I'll only catch the Pokemon I know that I'm going to use for at least a little while, otherwise I just see it as wasting Poke Balls. Sure, there are some I'll get through different things like the GTS and the Safari Zone that I don't really plan on using, but those Pokemon are few and far between now compared to before. My last look at HeartGold for example, I had only 2 1/2 boxes full of Pokemon after hundreds of hours played, whereas on my original Sapphire I had to start releasing Pokemon because I had way too many in my PC (this led to me inadvertently finding that I had a shiny Shroomish in one of my boxes, though).

                I leave mine in the PC, or I might even chuck them to another trainer, but, I would never, ever let mine rot... I'm surprised there aren't any PeTA like people in the games... They'd have you jailed!

                  I have never had useless Pokémon. And I have catch a ton of them.
                  I just know how to use them to it's fullest potential, even if it's just one small purpose.
                  Any Pokémon can be useless, even legendaries. Hard work and effort could change the general opinion on a certain Pokémon. Remember that.

                    Dunsparce is not useless. It has high HP and OK defenses. Can be used as a bulk/staller if used correctly.

                    Unown is useless.

                    Train them, enjoy them, experiment and have som fun in the E4.

                        If you have a Pokemon with you that you don't want, Wonder Trade it.

                        Most pokemon I can find something to do with them, but if they're extremely useless (like level 1 magikarp) then I either leave them in my PC or just let them go.

                          I never did serious breeding or catching in previous games so I never had issues before, but now I have never enough boxes... So I normally release them, sad as that may be. That goes primarily for things I know people would never want, like Lv. 30 Bibarel (no HA) or like, Lv. 3 Pansear. When it comes to things that are a little cooler or version exclusives (Vivillon, a ton of Noibats, Clawitzers and such) I keep them in trade boxes, which I fill with stuff I want to use as trade barter or wonder trades. I always feel a little bad about the ones I release but I guess that's the price we pay. @[email protected]

                            I usually release the Pokemon that are completely useless to me...and honestly I've never felt bad about it.

                            But now that I see people say that they feel bad for releasing Pokemon, I feel bad for never feeling bad. o:

                              For some reason, I don't release any of my Pokemon in X/Y... I'm a hoarder...

                              I usually put them into my PC and never look at them again, haha. If someone wants them, though, then I would have no problem giving it away to them. When I was younger, I used to have a lot of filler Pokémon in my PC boxes. Now, though, it's not really the same anymore. I do end up catching a few random Pokémon every now and then (just for fun), but most of the time, I catch Pokémon only if I absolutely need them. d:

                                I don't like releasing pokemon, but when I get doubles or pokemon I'm not going to use much anymore, then I use Wonder Trade

                                I just leave them in the PC. Occasionally, someone will want to give away a Pokemon to me, so I just use these "useless" Pokemon to trade off to them. If I ever end up filling my PC box to the max, I'll probably just release all the extra Pokemon that I've accumulated to make space for more Pokemon.

                                  By abandoning do you mean releasing them? Because I usually release any abundance of pokemon I don't plan on keeping. I let them roam free in the wild just like they were doing before I imprisoned them in a tiny ball. And I find sentiment in that more than I do if they were collecting dust.

                                  I wouldn't call the pokemon in my PC useless. I caught them for a reason, right? If I have decent doubles, I trade them to friends or via WT

                                  I leave them in the PC. We (usually) have more than enough room to store all the available Pokemon and more so there's really no reason for me to release them. I collect everything no matter how useless!

                                  'Useless' isn't in my vocabulary. I don't think I've ever released a Pokemon. I don't really see the point when I have plenty of PC storage. :(

                                  I either release them or leave them to gather dust in my PC box. :P
