The ugly duckling tauros. Number 17
The ugly duckling tauros. Number 17
I'm going to be bold here but I feel that none of his Pokemon in general get much in the way of proper training, including Pikachu, who basically at this point is a walking buddy really.
It's funny how Primeape is even an issue even though we all thought it was given away ages ago.^_^
I'm glad that people think that Tauros is a factor because I believe it's more underused than even Kingler. Atleast Kingler had some moments in the Whirl Cup. And here people are complaining about Palpitoad....
Besides almost all of the ones everyone's mentioned on here, I'd definitely say Totodile was extremely undertrained. In "Imitation Confrontation", Duplica was shocked that Totodile hadn't even learned Hydro Pump yet. Even though everyone's favorite little crocodile appeared quite frequently throughout Johto, I'd say that Ash honestly failed to bring it up to a stronger level.

Pidgeot is probably still waiting in that forrest outside of Pallet Town for Ash to come and bring it back. *Insert forever alone meme*
Butterfree :( it was sad to see him let it go :(
Charizard. He used him frequently but did not properly train him, instead spoiling him. This caused obedience issues later on.
Haunter. The poor thing had no character development and was given away to a creepy girl with a case of the giggles.
Although he wasn't technically captured, so... take it as you will.
C'mon, Jack... You've had a death wish ever since Terri died. The way things have been going for you in the past year and a half, this probably doesn't look like such a bad idea. You get to go out in a blaze of glory, one of the greatest heroes of all time, leave your troubles behind... This could be the easy way out, huh? You still got a life, Jack. You wanna be a real hero? Here's what you do. You get back down there and you put the pieces together. You find a way to forgive yourself for what happened to your wife. You make things right with your daughter, and you go on serving your country. That'd take some real guts. ~ George Mason
Gamagaru easily... in fact, I'd say it's one of Satoshi's most neglected Pokemon ever and definitely his most in his Isshu team. He's never been seen training, or even spending time with it, since he captured it. In fact, in all the time since Gamagaru's capture he's only called on him four times and all of those were for battles.
I have hated many aspects of BW, but the worst is in the treatment of the Pokemon belonging to the main cast. In D&P, the Pokemon were treated as if they were real. Their trainers spent training and quality time with them. They would often let them out of their Poke Balls for meals or sometimes to sleep outside. Each one had a distinct personality and they all got decent screen-time.
In BW, there's none of that. Half the Pokemon have no real personality, Satoshi's reserves spend dozens of episodes without appearing, sometime's the gang can sit down for a meal and it seems only certain Pokemon are allowed the luxury of a meal (take a recent episode when the gang say down to eat and the starters/cute Pokemon got to come out of their Poke Balls while one of Satoshi's Pokemon, Iris's Doryuzu and Kairyu and Dent's Iwapalace and Maggyo were seemingly left to go hungry... hell, Iris's Doryuzu seemingly spent weeks inside its ball before she sent it out to fight Pendror).
Cyndaquil. I never saw much of it unless it was protecting Ash.
