I'd go as far to say Cloyster was very under-rated... the same could be said for Wigglytuff?

Wigglytuff played a pivotal part in my conquering of Kanto in Yellow, but was ditched eventually for the immense Taurus.

Zubat was the most underrated/underused in my opinion.
 

Espeon Eyes

Watching you
Poor Zubat... I'm trying to level one up right now. It's pretty good when you're up against a lot of grass types.

Someone sait it, Zubat is an NFE pokémon, talk about Golbat or Fully evolved Pokémon

I think a very Unrated pokémon was Pinsir, if Game Freak could give him a strong Bug type Attack he would be a very destructive pokémon, the game plot would change, Pscychic pokémon could have some problems with him, his attack is quite strong...

Other Unrated pokémon is Tangela, the Second pokémon in the game to resist Ground attacks (shared with Exeggutor).
 
Dugtrio, Farfetch'd, Kingler, Jynx, Butterfree, Tauros. These are those in my mind at the moment.

Whoa there ... how do you figure KADABRA was forgotten?

Tons of people used Kadabra because they didn't have the means or the resources to trade to get an Alakazam, but Kadabra was still extremely powerful.

As for me though ... Paras and Parasect were probably used very rarely ...

Hey! I have a Parasect. Mainly since the first grass pkmn I ever came across was Paras and I needed it for Cerulean Gym(Even Though it fainted while battling Starmie and had to Beat Misty with Charmeleon)

Top 5:
Clefable
Persian
Golduck
Exeggutor
Tangela
 
People, Zubat and Tentacool are both NFEs (Not Fully Evolved) Pokemon. If you're going to list something, at least list the final evolution.

Tangela
Farfetch'd
Wigglytuff
Raichu
Pinsir

All terrible in my opinion.

Exeggutor

Exeggutor was actually one of the most widly used Pokemon in the 1st Gen. People loved him for his high Special, Defense and great access to moves. That, and its Psychic.

I don't think Likitung (sp?) ever got much love :(

then again that might be because its pretty rare
 

Sarracenia

I'd say Persian. Actually a brilliant Pokémon. STAB slash on something as fast as Persian is just awesome. Critical hits pretty much every time.
