I would use an electric type like ampharos rather than a weepinbell because there are a lot of flying & water types in Johto. Also the leaf stone is found post game so you can't even evolve it. I wouldn't recommend it since weepinbell doesn't have good stats.
@TL The Legend that's for later gens
Yeah, that doesn't fit in my question.
What do you want to do with this Weepinbell? Do you want to battle other people, in-game trainers, or something else?
This is for in-game.
Not a full answer, but https://www.smogon.com/forums/threads/gsc-in-game-tier-list-mk-iv.3665763/ Nidoqueen and Nidoking are probably both better than Weepinbell.

For a playtrough team, it's not useful in most major battles before Kanto, since it's only good against Chuck's Poliwrath (and maybe Pryce's Seel), and that's it. And while it is useful in Kanto, that is a post game area, you probably will take a long time to get there. Victreebell has solid stats, but obtaining a Leaf Stone is super hard.

Overall, it's is not great, but it isn't completly useless
