These Pokemon are niche-fillers with at least one very important advantage or favorable matchup. They are only useful in situational gym compositions or in defending against particular higher-tier attackers. Their job is always done more optimally or in a less exploitable way by a different Pokemon in a higher tier.
These are Pokemon with some good match-ups and base stats but have a poor typing or moveset that leaves them easily exploited by common attackers. They are still mentioned here as being generally worthwhile and superior to unlisted Pokemon.
