Absol is one of the most beloved and fawned over Pokemon ever. It's arguably more popular than the Gen III starters.
Perhaps you meant underrated in the battling department?

I'm not saying it doesn't have it's own Fan-base,
As does any other Pokemon named in this thread.
Just Saying it doesn't get the respect it deserves.
In the Anime, it's treated as a Pariah and, yes even in competitive battling,
it's often glossed over just because it doesn't measure up to some Arbitrary "Tier" system.
No. I didn't misread the thread.
for starters...,meganium and serperior everyones like "omg like there weak dude like pick the stronger ones there like totally better" but i dont like pokemon based on stats soooo
in general..beedrill, illumise, parasect, scolipede, venomoth, dustox, weezing,ledian,arbok, stuntank,octillery,pinsir,sawsbuck, among others....
Thought of more Pokemon today.
Palkia. Poor Palkia never gets any attention, and if any attention at all it's always referring to it's head look like...ahem...the "twigs and berries" as I say. Palkia's always forgotten from the Creation Trio. :( At least in my opinion, that is...
I also like Megnanium. My Megnanium helped me through SS alot. <3
Also Kangashakan (sp?), Masquerian, Venonat, Beedrill, Poliwag, Snorunt, Surskit, Bidoof and Bibarel. <3
3DS Friend Code is: 5215-0992-6785 Friend Safari is Combee, Beautifly, and Venomoth. Used to be Dark Type Princess~, now Jenneta and going to keep it that way. :)
Zigzagoon! I don't care about its status as being a fodder 'mon/HM Slave and how ridiculously common it is in RS, it's adorable. Pickup is really nifty, too... Heck, it can even Surf, not to mention!

Flareon, I don't care if it gets any good STAB moves, I love it, despite being labeled "Failreon". Mock it now though, because it is so overdue for Flare Blitz in Gen VI.

Chimecho! It's so rare in R/S and it may not have the best stats, but it's still pretty good and awesome looking.
I find it sad that Golduck is usually never referred to.
I mean, it's useful when you know how to handle it, but no one ever notices...
I also think Palkia needs more attention. Palkia seems to be judged by it's design... Pink with a strangly curved head. I like that, but apparently some people I know don't buy Pokemon Pearl (I like it more than Pokemon Diamond) because of it's design.
Beedrill always seems to be a step behind Butterfree wherever I go. I like Beedrill- It's probably the only fierce looking bee in the history of Pokemon. People always turns it down, but I used Beedrill in a game, and it was epic.
Chingling also never seems to be noticed. I honestly never noticed it too, until I started working on the National Dex in Pokemon Platinum.
Electrike's evolution line always seemed to go unnoticed, too. I like them, but other people I know don't.
I know Cubone/Marowak should be pretty well known for it's Pokedex entry, but I've never seen anyone use it in battle. It's really useful when you start using it, and it's half the reason why I beat the Poison Gym in LeafGreen.
