I was about half-way through Pearl and I had this Kadabra that was terrible.
So I restarted.

for me magikarp, because it only knew splash to train I had to keep switching it out so I could give him partial experience
When I first saw the Magikarp episode on TV, I just had to try and raise my Magikarp that I bought from that dude in Blue since I wanted it to evolve. It took a long time, but it was worth it.
Also during my first playthrough in Crystal, I raised my Beedrill up to Level 42 before finally giving up with it.
i do have a level 55 bibarel that i have in Diamond. He's an awesome HM slave... named HM slave. And well, I gave him an EXP share for a lot of farming runs through the elite 4. going for level 100
I haven't raised alot of pokemon, But i felt Rampardos to be a weak pokemon, moves were limited, and it didn't do much except sit on my team.
Back in middle school, I was convinced the reason people didn't use Spinda, Plusle, Minun, Castform, Keckleon, etc. was just because they didn't like them. I therefore assumed that if I made a team out of Pokemon like those, I would be unstoppable because none of my friends would "know how to handle them" and also because "it would be fun." It never occurred to me that these Pokemon might just be weak.
So I am the proud owner of a Level 50 Spinda, a Level 43 Castform, Level 46 Plusle and Minun, and a Level 50 Keckleon. among other things.
The plan obviously died several deaths. The Keckleon, however, was at least marginally useful for breeding Substitute onto better Pokemon.
I usually don't raise weak pokemon..
