They just don't care that much for those lesser used Unova pokemon, but care more for bringing back a popular pokemon, like Charizard, and use it as a way to play safe with the anime, doing something that they know the big majority of fans would certainly love.
Anyway, aside from Palpitoad, Unova pokemon hadn't been treated that bad. I mean, Oshawott had nice development at first, had good animation for his attacks, nice moveset, fall in love with several pokemon and shows up in almost every episode. Pignite evolved during a development episode, against his former trainer and has become a strong pokemon since then, beating opponents like Hydreigon. Snivy had a nice debut episode, has a good personality, great moveset and has develop a rivalry with Emolga. Unfezant is fully evolved and had her time to shine against Skyla. Leavanny is fully evolved and got some good battles against Burgh, Roxie and Stephan, showing he is a great battler. Boldore had a nice amount of screen time before evolving, and evolved during a Gym battle where he beat Clay's Excadrill despite the type disadvantage, and is now on Ash's team, will probably have a role in Episode N climax. Krookodile is fully evolved too, had a nice set up appearing as Sandile first, following Ash, battling Pikachu a couple of times, evolving in one of these battles, then after Ash caught him he got a nice development in Brycen's gym battle, training for it and beating Beartic, then he evolved against the ice-buster Dragonite and took him down. And if that isn't enough, he was a key part of the league battle vs Stephan, taking down 2 pokemon, one being tired and in disadvantage. Scraggy had a good development at first, developing a friendship with Axew, and learning some new moves, then he was used in gym battle against Brycen and took one pokemon down, and had a quick league win too. Good enough for a recently-hatched pokemon.
So, if you compare that with the treatment Kingler, Tauros and Muk got back in Kanto, or Totodile and Noctowl back in Johto. Unova pokemon have all, including Palpitoad, appear more and had more development than those had. Yet, all of those pokemon were used again in battle or appear in later sagas, so the same will happen with his current team.

I hate Pikari. She stole all of Takeshi's screen time, Plus Poké Balls, and along with her evil Penguin, Spammed all of Takeshi's Pokémon with Everstones.
That explains so much of what happened to him in DP, and why he didn't speak to Dawn much... or ever.
The only time a character truly dies is when you don't see them in shows anymore. RIP Takeshi.
I want to see Ash use the olde rpokemon that did not get modified movesets during the Sinnoh League.
Primeape better have returned. That opening shouldn't lie to us!

I want to see Squirtle come back and live at the lab.

Personally, I don't see the fascination with wanting pokemon who've done little to begin with to come back and attempt to be redeemed, cause unless they fought impressive opponents, then said redemption is pointless, though imho i believe that unless any of Ash's oaked guys have potential evos in the upcoming gen, they should focus on the pokemon who can actually get stuff done rather than the ones that can't.
For those of you with X and/or Y... My 3DS code is 1048-8163-5480How can no one see Ash with this thing? It's too adorable ~^_^~
I don't want anymore older Pokemon to come back, as I've said before Satoshi has enough Pokemon on his plate right now and we got an older Pokemon return in Lizardon. I'd rather see Zuruggu, Tsutarja, Gamagaru. If Kenharou stays at the Okido-Hakase ranch then that means Satoshi has eight Isshu Pokemon on his team. Those three are the ones I feel need battle time and wins the most currently and the most likely ones to evolve.(Gamagaru has the highest chance imo) I'd rather Satoshi focus on them right now if anything, plus I like all three of their personalities and feel as though those three are starved for focus and wins at the moment. Said surplus of Pokemon have almost all hit their prime(Waruvial, Hahakomori, Chaobu, etc.) so I don't expect much more from them except maybe Chaobu becoming an Emboar. Not sure what to say about Tsutarja, she's a wildcard in the evolution department. She was shown to be a very capable Pokemon right from the start and had an already maxed out moveset.(Leaf Storm, Leaf Blade, etc. Two strong moves that it took previous Grass-types on Satoshi's team a while to learn.) I wouldn't be surprised if Tsutarja stays the way she is given that Tsutarja is mature and has always been mature and might be too snide to change herself just for the sake of being stronger. Tsutarja is one of the Pokemon, personality wise, I really enjoy about BW(Alongside Waruvial, Chaobu, Zuruggu, Kairyu, etc.) so it's a bit of a pity she has such a lesser amount of change over the whole series. I'm still glad that Pokabu at least managed to develop from the weak Pokemon he was in the beginning and pretty much went all beast mode after evolution.
AS LONG AS PIKACHU, MIJUMARU, SCRAGGY, PIGNITE, AND SNIVY ARE ON THE SAME TEAM, NONE OF YOUR POKEMON WILL GET SCREEN TIME.

What are the chances of Cilan catching a Tropius during the DA! arc.
Iris has a big ride-able flying type like Dragonite, while Charizard would fill the same role for Ash.
So the only one who doesn't have a flying type yet is Cilan. And since he is still due for his 2nd grass type (Iris got hers in the form of Dragonite), the perfect pokemon for him to capture would be a Tropius. Plus having a Tropius would be an profit for Cilan considering that one can eat the fruits that grow around Tropius neck. So, CIlan can use them in various of his recipes.
A good set for it would be ,
- Leaf Storm/Magical Leaf
- Dragon Pulse
- Nature Power
