In the case of the Dragons, they all come down to two: Dratini and Axew, all the others are scratched off because of their reliance in luck (Deino and Gible) or are just hard to play (Bagon).
I have battled with Dratini and I'd say it's an A rank material just like Cork said; but Axew is just... not bad. Agreeing with the B tier.
All the rest can go in C; I suppose.
Also, I'd like to push this:

She has a despicable weakness to Toxic but can switch into most Pokemon barring Magnemite and Chinchou. It has superior speed which allows her to taunt common Hazard setters like Lileep, Ferroseed and outstall Defensive Pokemon like Bronzor and Slowpoke who can't do nothing but weakly damage its special bulk. Sure it has MANY flaws like sub-par stats and shallow movepool, but, with proper support or because of the support she can give, I think she deserves B-rank.
I just LOOOOOOVE Vullaby ^^.
Speaking of Slowpoke; even with the drop in usage I'd say it's a very good Poke in the right circunstances. I mean, it has power, movepool and durability. I find it's a really good physical wall and special attacker. Maybe B? I would push for A but with the advent of Missy and Murkrow I think that's overrating it a little.
Going for more C's:
+ Rattata and most Normal-types.
+ Pidgey and ALL Flying/Normal except for Taillow
+ Gastly (like Corkscrew said)
And Koffing for B.
