Little Cup threats that go downhill?


Recently I considered using Lanturn in VGC, I mean it could hit groudon with scald, Rayquaza with T-Wave and kyogre with thunder, right? But I realized that the damage it would do and its mediocre speed made it a sitting duck. And it got me thinking about how chinchou is this superb pokemon in Little Cup, pretty effective with a scarf, or very tanky with recovery abilities and versatile enough to be an offensive threat. But it grows into an pokemon that is just terrible.

So what other pokemon do you find performing really well or are really interesting in LC, but evolve into pokemon that are almost totally useless in OU and/or Battlespot? Why do you think they're left behind?
