Porygon is the most under rated pokemon. It never appeared in the cartoon series in the english version.

I would also say porygon BUT it HAS appeared in the anime in japan. Except it didn't make it to other regions because of the seizure thing how it hospitalised, i think, 900 japanese kids...

Pinsir, Seadra, and Electrode. Has anybody even mentioned Electrode? The poor thing...

Pinsir and Voltorb.

They serve no real purpose other than being needed to complete the PokeDex.

A duel well fought..
Butterfree is hardly ever used. Nor is wigglytuff or clefable. They were real strong bk in the day. I used them loads of times. Don't really see pidgeot used anymore either.
 

Nebbio

NINJA!
Ninetail, Porygon and Farfetch'd.

Aww c'mon, Pinsir isn't half bad(In this gen at least)

Anyways, My top 5:
Pinsir
Lickitung
Tangela
Mr. Mime
Golbat

Vileplume
Poliwrath
Dugtrio
Magneton (I guess with Magnezone in the game, it's a bit more attention.)

Porygon. It was banned from the anime.

Poliwrath or Dewgong. By the time you could catach them, you already had a water type.
 
Even though it's one of my favorites to use competitively, I hardly ever see a Clefable in battles. It's a very useful pokemon.

I have a binder literally EXPLODING with forgotten and underused cards.
A few are
Sableye
Luvdisk
Happiny
Bulbasaur wasn't nessicarilly forgotten; but it did get boring. Pokemon is kind of fading away.. AND DOES ANYONE HAVE A KOGA'S DITTO?!

Arcanine.

He's a forgotten legendary and learns all the powerful fire type moves by decent levels.

Farfetch'd. It's a shame it sucked in battle.
The poor thing looked awesome too.

i know a lot of people like electrode for being the fastest pokemon in gen 1 woot. and magikarp was used a lot because everyone wanted gyarados. magikarp is in the same boat as abra.
i haven't seen too many people use pinsir, though, or rapidash or tentacruel or dodrio or muk or lickitung or farfetchd or omastar, in general. this isn't to say they are never used.
in my opinion, raticate is under appreciated. he's one of the earliest pokemon you can get with rattata and one of the most fun. super fang takes down half an enemy's hp, which is super awesome (and useful for capturing legendaries).
