Pokemon hated by Game Freak Part 1

As we all know there are just somethings Game Freak does completely wrong. There are a few pokemon that Game Freak seems to hate for whatever reason. I have compiled a list of them that seems to make my point known. I will start this bit with a personal favorite of mine, Kingler.
Kingler had a great physical movepool when the conversion was made. Crabhammer, Return, X-Scissor, Rock Slide, Superpower, etc. I could not help but notice something that it was missing that its Generation 3 counterpart got, Waterfall.
It gets Surf, which is all fine and dandy except it is meant to be a physical sweeper. Waterfall would give it reliable damage and accuracy, which Crabhammer does not. It has to rely on an 85% ACC move that has a +1 Critical Hit. This move does not bode well simply because it could mean life or death.
Yes Crabhammer has better BP and that +1 CH. Waterfall gives it a 100% ACC move with a chance of flinch.
Not to mention it can't help but feel shafted when Troll Freak made Crawdaunt who gets both a secondary STAB AND Waterfall and Dragon Dance.
I rest my case.
Next time will be one that has soooo much potential but Troll Freak just can't pull the trigger.
