Hmmm... A lot.
There was Emboar, which I still use on my main Black team, but suffered from a lack of Speed. Zebstrika ended up not really cutting the mustard, especially given its horrendous physical movepool. Swanna was all well and dandy, until I realized it couldn't learn Blizzard, which was key to my strategy for Drayden. Zoroark... wasn't bad, per se, but being limited to Night Slash for STAB was infuriating at times. I did manage to utterly humiliate Caitlin because her AI thought it was a Zebstrika, and therefore could be damaged by Psychic, and just kept using it over and over. Crustle... it was mostly an impulse catch, but I thought I could utilize Sturdy and Shell Smash together. One guess how that turned out.
One time in White, I used Reuniclus - and utterly hated it. It was slow, it couldn't take a hit, and it just flat out sucked. Never use Reuniclus in-game. Ever.
Also, I've used Serperior before in White 2, and really, I have no beef with it. Really, anything you can do with Lilligant, you can do with Serperior, except on the physical side.
People talk about how bad the elemental monkeys are, and really, I'd only agree with Simisear sucking. I didn't have that many problems with Simisage, and I'm currently playing through a second copy of Black and using Simipour. About to fight Elesa, and no real problems to report.

Friend Safari: Pansage, Petilil, Gogoat
As of now, my focus is on Safaris with starters (barring Wartortle and Quilladin), but give me your Safari anyway. Chances are I'll find something interesting.
