Now, there have been a lot of metagames trying to get lesser used pokemon to see use; indeed, I'd wager a fairly significant percentage have this as either a stated or indirect goal. But they tend to do it with very specific fine tuning, careful editing of movepools and abilities. Screw that. This metagame is all built on a very simple concept: All pokemon below OU have all their base stats increased by 5 per tier below OU. Pokemon in UU get a boost of 5 to each stat. Pokemon in RU get a boost of 10 to each stat. Pokemon in NU get a boost of 15 to each stat. Pokemon that were previously restricted to 1 HP are no longer restricted if they got a boost to base HP (in other words, Shedinja's boost is intentional) And that's basically how that works. It's easy to find some incredible examples, but let's just look at some interesting cases; I'm going to try to use some... infamous examples, to better illustrate my point. Even pokemon mostly regarded as jokes down in NU sound pretty intimidating with +15 to all stats: Charizard may have that nasty SR weakness, but it feels significantly scarier when it's backed by 115 base speed, and 124 base special attack. But we can get better still. Imagine Smash Pass from a 70/99/120/129/90/67 Gorebyss! Hell, you might not even need to pass! But that's just NU; +15 to all stats is a crazy amount; let's see what's fun in RU: Archeops. 150 base attack. 120 base speed. Something dies. Rotom. 60/87/87 defenses, 105 special attack (same as the base for the other formes), and 101 speed. Becomes an acceptable stand-in for last gen's Rotom-A, trading some bulk for a much better speed stat. Maybe defense is more your style, Amoonguss, a pokemon that already sees some occasional use in OU, gets a boost to a very bulky 124/80/90 defensive spread, with mediocre but usable base 95 offensive stats. Or perhaps UU is more what you're looking for? Tornadus. I'm not sure he'll be staying UU, with the ban of the Therian forme, but for the moment, base 130 special attack hurricane off 116 base speed sure sounds pretty nice. Mew, Shaymin, and Victini all have their solid base 100 spreads boosted to a much nicer solid 105 spread, pushing them up a speed tier and adding to their respectable bulk. Porygon-2 gets a nice boost to its already great defenses, up to 90/95/100, with a nice boost to its special attack. The possibilities go on and on from there; it's a very interesting metagame to play; one where top threats in OU are usurped by pokemon they previously outclassed, it turning out that all they needed was a little boost to their stats.
