Top Ten Best Bug Pokemon

Please vote for the best bug pokemon from the kanto to sinnoh region.

The Top Ten

1 Scizor Scizor

Scizor is just plain awesome. His unique typing of bug and steel give him 10 resistances! Scizor has a gigantic attack stat, along with good defense. Sure, it doesn't have ridiculous speed like its pre-evolution scyther, but to me, scizor is much better scyther. I'm not sure why, really. Oh yeah, scizor looks AWESOME! Just look at those wings! Its pincers! Its just so.. UNgrrRR! I love Scizor! Best bug type ever!... (just keep it away from fire).

The best looking bug type Pokemon ever, it has strong attack stat as well as his defense. It can sweep a lot of Pokemon and he has one of the best abilities witch is technician (increase weaker moves by 1.5 times) plus he look so epic with his pincers and his exoskeleton is like awesomeness and epicness combined. I have my own scizor and sweeps a lot I mean a lot of Pokemon I called it "The Red Orbit"... Again the best bug type ever

Scizor is definitely one of the best bug types ever: cool look, immune to poison, lots of resistance, great attack, good's just really awesome. It has huge pincers that crush things to puny bits and it's wings, even though they aren't used for flying, they regulate his body temperature (okay well nobody really cares about that but whatever.) His X-Scissor and Metal Claw is super good, killing everything easily.

2 Heracross Heracross

Although yanmega has higher base stats overall, heracross is the strongest bug. Yanmega has 5 weaknesses and 4 resistances, whilst heracross has 3 weaknesses and 5 resistances. He has amazing attacking stats and very powerful move choices, as well as decent defense and speed stats. He also has the ability guts, which raises his attack by 50% when it has a status problem, only strengthening it. It also has swarm, which powers up bug type moves when it's health is below 1/3. Imagine mega horn with his ability and its amazing attack stat. Now that's gonna deal some real damage!

Heracross are large beetle-like Pok�mon covered in a blue exoskeleton. The most notable feature is the large, pronged horn protruding out of its forehead. Heracross has two antennae with spherical tips to the sides of the horn, and elliptical eyes with yellow scleras. Heracross has small spiky extensions on the forearm segments of its exoskeleton, and two claws on its hands. Heracross has a single spiky extension on each thigh, and one pointed toe on its feet. -

Such a cool and awesome pokemon. This should be number one. Seriously, how can people not realize how cool this awesome pokemon really is? It is so much better than Beautifly in every way. HERACROSS RULES!

In a Pokemon episode, Ash's heracross beat Scizor

3 Volcarona Volcarona

What? Only number 4? Preposterous! Volcarona is the epitome of powerful bug types. It will put any other bug type in its place. The only type that Volcarona could possibly fear is Rock, but because of rock-types typically having low speed and low special defense, there really isn't much to worry about.

Volcarona already has high special defense and decent speed. Now combine that with quiver dance and you've got a very powerful sweeper. It also has a powerful signature move in fiery dance which has 80 power and has a 50% chance to increase special attack. This thing is op it has an amazing design it looks so beautiful.

The Fire-Bug type combination is just so bad-ass in my opinion, pretty much combining one of the worst types with one of the best. It can learn very powerful Fire-type moves at the same time as learning strategic bug-type ones. Plus, look as those wings. Who could look at those at not see them as awesome?

Volcarona is a very good Pokémon go look at its stats

4 Genesect Genesect

Genesect is by FAR the most OP Bug Pokemon, and one of the most OP Pokemon in general. A Base 120 power move with no recharge time and the ability to change types? The fact that Genesect got banned to uber says enough, and it has good speed with both offenses being 120. The only Bug Pokemon that really can take down Genesect is Volcarona since Volcarona is faster (99 compared to 100 base speed, almost no difference), but scarfed Genesect can fix that and take advantage of Volcarona's bad physical defences, since Volcarona is unlikely to be scarfed and Quiver Dance takes time to set up. Not a lot can counter Genesect IN UBER TIER, except for possibly Ghost/Steel Arceus and Dialga but even those are at risk. Seriously, Genesect has the potential to wreck any other bug Pokemon in this list.

I'm surprised so many people are forgetting Genesect. Granted it's not like he is only fantastic bug Pokemon with the likes of Scizor, Volcarona and Heracross around but Genesect is still the best bug Pokemon. Beside the obvious advantage of 600 best fit for a legendary it has just the right movepool and ability in Download to hit everything extremely hard and run various play-styles including as a scout and a anti-lead. Heck, it is one of those Pokemon that come closest to have no counters, no small feat considering it has no sleeping-inducing moves.

Somebody tell me why genesect is not higher on the list? He is an OP man made reborn fossil pokemon now as a mythical. He is completely militarized and has a giant proton back cannon or whatever it is. Genesect is so powerful it only took one of them to go against mega mewtwo Y and nearly win. The only reason it didn't win is because another genesect be him. He is also the same type as scizor but much better so why so low?

It's a very good pokemon an is very OP also it is a mythical

5 Galvantula Galvantula

I have fond memories with this pokemon because in my first play through of black and white, this thing was my mvp. Electric type pokemon are also my favourite type and this thing is my 3rd favourite electric type, besides Jolteon and Electivire. And later on when I got into competitive battling, I often found Galvantula on my teams. Galvantula is an amazing sticky web user and threatens many defog users with compound eyes + thunder. It can also be used as a special attacker with a sold 97 special attack and 108 speed. Overall, I love everything about Galvantula, including its design, typing, movepool and stats.

I'd say Galvantula is a pretty good bug type, with it's ability, and is really fast. However, there are some types it will be creamed against, unfortunately, otherwise he would be great.

Bug and electric? Best type combination ever I've ever come across with always taking fire starter. Plus his ability is very helpful.

6 Scyther Scyther

Scyther is the best ever! Not only does he look totally awesome, but he's so fast and damn false swipe is dead useful. Probably my favorite non-legendary Pokemon of them all. (Mewtwo rules)

Scyther is a really good bug type Pokemon. Of you are going for a full bug team, it should be: scyther (or scizor ) ninjask, pinsir, butterfree, genesect, and scolipede. This will give you a variety of different Pokemon types so you can match them to other Pokemon, and don't think about moving Scyther, because he is the essential part of this team

Scyther has the blades for arms, Scyther has the dinosaur shaped head, and is a Scyther and a Scizor were coming towards me to kill me I would want the Scizor to kill me first because I would be so scared of what the Scyther will do to me. For bug type Pokemon Scyther is a beast.

Get lost scizor is better genwunners - TENTACRUEL

7 Ninjask Ninjask

Ninjask is literally the fastest pokemon (besides legendary pokemon). With baton pass and an ability that only further boosts Ninjask's speed, it is one of the best, if not the best, supporter pokemon. Ninjask also has a pretty solid attack stat, so it can use choice band as well.

Ninjask is one of the fastest Pokemon ever. And I LOVE fast Pokeon. Plus he just looks so cool. - TheStupidHobo

Speed Boost is amazing, just spam Protect and Substitute, and if your Substitute doesn't fade within a turn, use Swords Dance, Baton Pass it on to a Pokemon like Scizor, or Heracross, and then sweep your opponent's team. - noo7na7

so fast!

8 Yanmega Yanmega

Yanmega is a large, dark-green dragonfly. Each of Yanmega's segments have a red spot on it while the last segment has a black thorn on it. Yanmega has two black triangular plates on the back of its thorax and another plate on its head. Yanmega has red and white wings. Yanmega's eyes are red with a "Y" shape in each one. It can also be said that Yanmega has the appearance of a plane. -

I think yanmega is a very underrated Pokemon and it deserves to be in at least the top 5. It has two great abilities (tinted lens and speed boost) and it has ok speed and great sp. attack. With tinted lens you know you are going to hit hard every time and speed boost lets you out speed a lot of Pokemon. Pair that with its awesome looks and you have a good Pokemon. Very weak to rock types though.

I think the only thing holding back Yanmega from devouring everything in competitive is it's weakness to stealth rock. Both of Yanmega's abilities are extremely powerful. I prefer tinted lens, as nothing is louder than a bug buzz that isn't held back by even type effectiveness.

Yea boi yanmega - TENTACRUEL

9 Scolipide

Scolipede is my personal favorite bug type Pokemon. Not only because of it's incredible speed and learnable attacks, but also it's ability to wreck any psychic and grass type in one shot! My Scolipede has entered the Hall of Fame, and won link battles multiple times.

Scolipide is the best bug type pokemon ever. Super fast and super strong, it's gotten itself into the hall of fame on multipule occasions.

I've always been a fan of Scolipede, and I will never hesitate to place him in my party. With a base stat of 485 (which is quite strong for his type), and the ability to learn megahorn will murder any psychic type that stands in the way of you and victory. He's never let me down.

Probably the only bug type I actually like

10 Pinsir Pinsir

A wonderful bug-type Pokemon, it's gotten me far in every game I could catch it in. You may be wondering, how and it's simple. He's amazing. He was able to one-hit legendary Pokemon 20 levels under them. He's the reason I save before legendary battles and why false swipe is a move. He can easily beat Scyther while he Sword Dances, Beedrill and Butterfree shouldn't even be fighting him. In other words if you came a generation after him you are too late. Also, he can learn fighting moves since gen 1! He'll beat the elite four, Mew-Two, anything that you throw at him will faint with the right training.

For one pinsir is better than heracross because it is mono type witch has less weaknesses and because heracross do to its dual type it is 4x weak to flying if it is around your level it will faint I'm talking about heracross in this part to any flying type move that does damage and pinsir only has a 2x weakness to flying heracross is pretty cool but pinsir is better plus it can learn submission, brick break, revenge, x-sissor, guillotine, superpower, thrash, vital throw seismic toss, focus blast, mega punch, mega kick, body slam, double edge, giga impact, hyper beam, stone edge, and focus punch this thing is definitely strong and that's an under statement.

A bug type that can learn numerous fighting type moves as well as guillotine, you better prepare your anus when battling one of these bad-ass beetles.

Pinsir is a Winner! He even Mega evolves! He is sssoo cccuute!

The Contenders

11 Beedrill Beedrill

Beedrill pretty much took me all the way to the end in Pokemon Blue with pin missile. Much butterfree since Beedrill has higher speed and attack and ACTUALLY LEARNS BUG TYPE MOVES IN GEN 1. Beedrill can also learn pursuit which gets rid of the psychic effectiveness and brick break/rock smash which gets rid of rock type. Beedrill is the probably best deal as far as Pokemon you get early in the game. Beedrill is an essential asset to any bug team, and definitely my favorite.

this is cool because it has a cool name and come on its got drills fore hands and it is a bee (henc the name beedrill LOL = )

A tough pokemon easily accompanied by more bee drill. This pokemon has won many battles in the anime and has also been Owned by ash until he gave it away. Bee drill is my pick.

This is the best pokemon ever. Easily counter rock and psychic with brick break/pursuit/assurance. It also learns a few good flying moves by TM which could get rid of pokemon like Blaziken. It learns even more TMs and combine that with drill run to counter fire rock and electric with awesome speed and attack. You could spam U-turn and sweep.

12 Leavanny Leavanny

Leavanny is my favorite bug type, because it brings back my childhood memories. I remember it in my Black play through, and it was a star player, plus the first Pokemon I had reach level 100. Plus, it was shiny!

You can find a Sewaddle at the very beginning of the game, but when you fully evolve it it has great moves and stats! Not number one, but definitely deserves to be higher.

It may have lot's of weaknesses, but It doesn't keep me from loving this Pokemon. I like it's concept and mother like personality very much :).

I LOVE leaving she's a masterpiece

13 Butterfree Butterfree

Butterfree resembles a vaguely anthropomorphic butterfly. Unlike true insects, it only has four legs, which are a pale blue color. It has a nose-like structure which is a similar color. Butterfree's body�s coloration is a darker purple-blue. It has large veined wings which are white with black markings. These markings can help distinguish male and female individuals. It has large compound eyes which tend to be a reddish color. Like members of the order Lepidoptera, Butterfree�s wings are covered in fine scales. Its legs are covered in fine hairs which aid in the collection of honey. -

My favorite Pokemon of ALL TIME! My friends give me a lot of stink for having Butterfree on my team, but I just have to have it.

Butterfree is totally underestimated. It used to be my league powerhouse in leaf green. With compound eyes as it ability, it can spam sleep powder with higher accuracy. Then I teach it dream eater to make it really strong. The best butterfly pokemon ever.

This sucks... Like all the butterfree fans

14 Vespiquen Vespiquen

Dude I love this is in my top 5 most favorite bug pokemon. This gigantic bee is one of the best defensive pokemon ever created and isn't that bad with attack power. Plus with moves like Heal order and Defense Order it is really hard to beat...Even if u have a pokemon like Charizard going up against it is still going to be difficult to beat...I have faced this situation in PVP battle where I had my charizard going up against one and I was struggling. I wish this was higher on the list but pretty much every bug in the top 10, should be there...Except for ninjask. Also...PEOPLE THINK THAT BUTTERFREE IS BETTER THAN THIS TANK?!...THANK AGAIN PEOPLE...THINK...AGAIN

one of most reliable tanker in pokemon world... plus the elegant and sophisticated look rocks! I love the balloon gown ;-p

All this killer needs is some defense order, heal order, and then whatever you prefer. Maybe toxic and attack order I don't know. There's a lot of possibilities with Vespiquen to keep it interesting and underrated.

Vespiquen deserves to be #1

15 Armaldo Armaldo

I agree that Armaldo should be at least in the top 10s. Its one of the greatest fossil Pokemon that there is. Both rock type and bug type can sure take a lot of types of Pokemon. It takes lots of patience to train anorith to armaldo level but it's worth it. When I was facing Steven, his Armaldo wasn't easy to defeat so I vote for Armaldo!

Should be in top ten. Rock-bug type can take down any grass, flying, fire, or ice type. Plus massive attack and defense.

he is a bug but he is a rock type to

16 Durant Durant

Durant is very fast, very strong and if you give him 1 hone claws, he may sweep enemy team.

Steel AND Bug, couldn't ask for a better type arrangement! And his attack is OP!

So strong don't underestimate his size he is strong - TENTACRUEL

He replased scizor for me with its 109 base speed ant* attack combine that with its ability hustle for a 50% attack boost at the cost of acc
but can learn arial ace which can't miss together with strong moves like x-scizor and ironhead for stab with either supper power or dig gives you a mon that gets underestimated

* pun intended

17 Beautifly Beautifly

I've been reading a lot about bug types but honestly I'm resetting and playing Pokemon sapphire with this guy on my team. Maybe it's the looks but in game considering all its weaknesses it would be a challenge to have but seriously beautifly has some good qualities to it, even if it is outshined by a lot of others. Give her a chance guise :3

Dude, go for it. I've got Beautifly on my Ruby team and although it struggled early on, once it learned Giga Drain and Gust it became a powerhouse on my team. Beautifly is even better in Sapphire because it learns Grass attacks giving you a huge advantage over Team Aqua

I caught my first beautifly back when I first bought Ruby. It was my second Pokemon and I do not regret catching it. It was a major powerhouse on my team. If I ever was stuck trying to defeat a psychic type I could send her out to use moves like Thief or Sikver Wind to finish the job. BEAUTIFLY IS THE BEST!

You guys should vote for her.

18 Ariados Ariados

Ariados should be in the top ten because it is a pretty good Pokemon and it is one of the few bug types that can learn sticky web.

Ariados is a spider-like Pok�mon in appearance. It has a red body with black stripes and an unhappy face on its abdomen. Ariados has four yellow legs with purple stripes; its fifth and sixth legs seem to have been moved onto its back. -

Useful in battle, decent stats, and it looks BADASS, easily the coolest and best designed bug Pokemon in the whole game. It's only problem is it's speed.

Cool Cool

19 Shedinja Shedinja

Shedinja is a beast with it's ability but the1hp is a backfire when confused but I use one on my team and so far it kicks the souls out of its opponents pun intended. And is my favorite type BUG now I'm hoping for a BUG-DRAGON I'd use that any day but to rap it up shedinja is a boss and I'd definitely would give it a try.

Shedinja is amazing! With the wonder guard ability is it on of the most durable Pokemon in the game! If given a focus sash to hold it can withstand even super effective attacks. Also, with the super attack, it crushes opponents.

Shedinja is a brownish Pok�mon resembling an insect's exoskeleton. Shedinja has a white halo floating over its head and a black hole on its back. It is actually the shed remains of a Nincada after it evolves into a Ninjask. However, there is no logical explanation as to how Shedinja gained a "life" of its own. -

He's mostly unstopable

20 Accelgor

Accelgor is awesome it's like a bug ninja so cool

Good for cleaning out teams in the end game

I love accelgor such a sneaky bastard

Love this thing so underrated

21 Masquerain Masquerain

This guy is cool...that's all I need to say

Masquerain's design is amazing! Also it's actually pretty good too now that it got it's speed and special attack buffed in gen 7. And it's movepool is great too. It even learns ice beam.

even the name sounds cute - spongelover

Alright, for your info, dis guy is really to op, it sweeped my whole team which contained mostly all defense pros and STABmons, ok? it wiped my aquanid, which I had trained specifically for sp. defense, and it still OHKO'ed me, masquerain also had more speed than my ZOROARK! it easily bug buzzed my malamar and ash cap pikachu, and I landed no damage AT ALL!

22 Golisopod Golisopod

Why is this so low? It's basically the bug equivalent of Gyarados. Loads of heavy hitting priority moves, free switches and revenge kills, great bulk and attack. People have been begging for a bug/water type that wasn't Surskit for a long time now, and we finally get this bruiser!

So bulky and hits super hard. I used hum to beat everything in Sun.

Probably one of the best revenge killers.This guy packs a powerful punch and can definitely take a hit, both physically and even specially. Once that somewhat annoying ability activates, use that oppurtunity to send out a better pokemon. Overall, he definitely is one of the best gen 7 pokemon. With a good movepool and access to the most strongest priority move in first impression, you're doomed if the pokemon you send out is weak to it

It has great type coverage that could tank any mon while having great attack and defense stats. The only thing that really nerfs it is its ability Emergency Exit and its weakness to Freeze-Dry.

23 Joltik Joltik

I Like Joltik, okay? It's fast and evolves into galvantula which is super powerful. - Swaggy11


24 Crustle

Crustle is awesome he also has beast defense AND HE CAN LEARN SHELL SMASH that is a very good move still I don't think he will make one but I think that he is a very very good bug type

A Bulky Pokemon that can be an absolute monster if used right. Works best if you have multiple Pokemon on the field as most trainers avoid targeting it.

This Ed about Top 10

Wondering why this is lower than galvantula... same typing but levitate and awesome special attack

The best early game bug type there is. No argument.

Uhm… don't get me wrong, this is like super powerful, and WHATTT?

26 Vivillon Vivillon Vivillon, known in Japan as ビビヨン (viviyon) is a dual Bug-Flying type Pokémon in the Pokémon series. It is often criticized for being number 666 in the national Pokédex. This is pretty odd, as it resembles a butterfly.

In my opinion, Vivillon is one of the most elegant and beautiful bug type Pokemon. Shame that it's stats are kind of lackluster without a boost from Quiver Dance.

Vivillon can easily set up after sleep powder with quiver dance and sweep. My favourite bug, and bugs my favourite type

You see this thing? This thing is a beast. Literally. Put this in a rain team with Hurricane and you are good to sweep.

It a pretty beast come on

V 11 Comments
27 Shuckle Shuckle

In my opinion, Shuckle is one of the best Pokemon. But he relies too heavily on other Pokemon to actually be good on his own.

For example. If you were to teach Shuckle Bulk up to max attack and defense so that when you use Power Trick you can take a hit. He has such little health that he would be dead in a couple of turns.

I suggest using Follow Me or Baton Pass so he will be prepared to take on other Pokemon.

Shuckle is unbeatable in a double battle with my gallade! Gallade uses trick room while shuckle uses power trick last in that turn, then next turn he basically can kill anyone he wants in one hit and goes first!

Power trick room. Double battle, Shuckle and Dusknoir

Higher defense stat than mega aggron, toxapex,and mega steelix

V 11 Comments
28 Escavalier

I have to pick between scizor and escavalier because they both only have one weakness. escavalier has 25 more defense, 5 attack and 5 sp defense. He lacks speed so why not give this tank a counter? Also he can learn drill run (ground) to take out fire types. Scizor is better only because he has an omega form.

Escavalier should be MUCH higher on this list. More so in the top ten.

They work very well together

I had escavalier in white and it sweeped ghetsis easily. It can also easily set up with swords dance because of its great tankiness as long as all of the fire-types are taken care of

29 Venomoth Venomoth

The awesome Psychic Moth! It learns Quiver Dance and has an amazing ability (tinted lens)! Plus... It's just such an awesome poke- don't believe me, ask Sabrina- she has one (her only non-psychic type)!

Venomoth is the all time best insect pokemon. It has giagantic base HP for an insect and one of the few insects that actually learns Psychic.

to be able to use psychic type moves on a pokemon which is not psychic it self is cool

With a use of poison, bug and psychic attacks, tinted lenses, quick calaw and a pretty decent health bar, venemoth can become a pretty strong part of a team

33 Ledian Ledian

Ledian resembles a large, mostly red ladybug. It has two black antennae, a black neck and a black spot in the center of its forehead. Its two eyes are large, blue and slanted, reminiscent of the stereotypical alien. Its four arms are like those of its pre-evolved form Ledyba: black stalks with cartoonish white fists at the end. Its two legs are similar to its arms, but end with large red feet. Its back is red in coloration, with the undersides of the ladybug-like wing covers yellow. -

cute... very cute!!!!
love it a lot...

It has the move set Substitute, Focus Punch, Swords Dance, and Baton Pass. Master move set right there. I mean come on! - gorilladanny

|I'm gonna vote for Ledian just because it's adorabe holy COW

34 Dustox Dustox

Bulkiest Quiver Dancing bug out there. Shadow Ball with STAB Sludge Bomb has awesome coverage, only 10 Pokemon resisting it. Give it Iron Defense.

Plus it looks like a lavender rabbit-fairy :3

These crazy Dustox Pokemon get Bug Buzz, Silver wind, Sludge Bomb, and Toxic which is a nice move if you use a defending move which I think quiver dance works excellent for that use so that can be a great combo!

I actually like this pokemon because of its early learning of confusion when it evolves. Its good to have early on unlike a bunch of other bug type pokemon and deserves more praise.

I like it as a moth based

35 Forretress Forretress

Come on, really guys? Forretress is OP and he definitely shouldn't belong at 33, I mean just look at his STAB defense!

Steel and bug he is pretty dope

I'm just a huge fan of (my) Forretress! :-)

38 Mothim Mothim

Mothim has four tan-colored wings, two large and two small, with orange circles adorning them. The wings split to three at the tip of the larger wings and splits in two at the tips of the smaller wings. Mothim has a black head, with orange eyes and two red and gray antennae above his head. Mothim's body is also black with a patch of orange on the underside and his legs are gray. He also has a small black tail that splits into two. It doesn't matter what form Burmy was in before it evolved; Mothim will always look the same. They also will have a small gray stripe running down their back. -

cute and strong pokemon.... also like this=)

Believe it or not, Mothims are really good. They learn powerful attacks like Bug Bite at low levels and are really good additions to one's team.

39 Paras Paras

Paras is beast because he can poison, paralyze, and put to sleep enemy Pokemon. Plus he learns he learns all different types of status moves at a lower level.

He so bad ass I accidentally voted for him

... Essentially a zombie...
Points for creativity...

So underrated. This guy is a fantastic staller, and if you don't choose Bulbasaur, Parasect is almost a perfect replacement! How is Paras, the pre-evolution, higher than Parasect? - Meko750

43 Weedle Weedle Weedle is a worm-like Pokémon in the Pokémon series. It evolves to Kakuna, which evolves to Beedrill. Its name may come from "worm" and "needle", or "weed" and "needle", referencing that it chews weeds, helping gardeners.

So, you're trying to tell me my mate weedle is worse than caterpie? You are gonna have a bad time...
He is better than him in every single way, he learns Poison Sting, String Shot and Bug Bite? Caterpie gets tackle instead of Poison Sting leaving him at an obvious disadvantage as while he is using tackle he has to deal with being poisoned and my attacks whatever they may be.

If you have ever once thought in your life that weedle is bad, actually think about it for a minute he's not the worst bug type like everyone says, that is in-fact caterpie.

Way cooler than caterpie

Stronger and cooler than. Caterpie

Weedle is the strongest pokemon in the world I adore this God to death 1000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000 % and a lot more better then that pile of poop and the devil cater pie log squad is da best cater pie should not be on the list!

48 Arceus Arceus Arceus is a legendary Pokémon from the Pókemon series. He first appeared in the 18th Pokémon movie alongside other Legendary Pokémon.

I don't think this should count because it's practictly a Normal type but the plates are what changes the types, and you won't believe this but my Blaziken defeated it in (1) High Jump Kick, !

My durant one-hit it. I am disappointed.

Didn't know he was a bug type to.

It's a normal type blerr - TENTACRUEL

49 Metapod Metapod

(Sarcastic comment) best Pokemon ever! Everybody loves this green utterly useless Pokemon with it's lovely harden move which makes it a pain to kill for weaker Pokemon ( non sarcastic comment ) deserves to be extinct I HATE METAPOD!

Harden? Best Pokemon in the game.

I challenge a trainer then he brings out Metapod. I'm surprised when he can actually use Tackle!

Better than Magikarp
