The Top Ten
What's not to love?
Awesome design and the mega is OP - fwed
Scizor's typing gives it a huge advantage as it's only weak to fire. Otherwise, it has a fantastic movepool, can Swords Dance, and has the Technician ability. This is my favorite Pokemon hands down since I first used it in Gen 2, as it can sweep any game easily on its own.
Scizor is so bad assV 158 Comments
In a Pokemon episode, Ash's heracross beat Scizor
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 has defeated pinsir robot of team ticket and defeated scizor it also has a mega evolution.
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. -V 115 Comments
It is the best
Ok why did I think this was a legendary in the first place.
Volcarona is a really good pokemon. Bugs are typically very weak, but Volcarona is a great counter-example.
The pokemon that made bug type relevant and feared in the 5th generation. Hail to the Sun God!V 114 Comments
One day there will be a pokemon episode where it is revealed Tracy's Scyther died... RIP
Get lost scizor is better genwunners - TENTACRUEL
Genwunners scizor is better - TENTACRUEL
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)V 26 Comments
Love this tank!
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.
Awesome pokemon, when it mega evolves it becomes the best false swiper ever and it turns return to about 200 power!
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.V 24 Comments
It's really good but in some circumstances, Shedinja is better - fwed
It is THE FASTEST NON LEGENDARY POKEMON IN EXISTENCE yeah speed is key my dudes
Honestly it just seems like a ninja butterfly so how does it do so much damageV 33 Comments
I'm sorry, Pokémon above this Electric Spider, but Galvantula should be higher than ya'll. In Black, it pulled me through. In White 2, it pulled me through again.
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.V 16 Comments
So good and my favofite
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. -
Yea boi yanmega - TENTACRUEL
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.V 26 Comments
He was on my team in White Version.
It deserves at least number 5
Probably the only bug type I actually like
The best with speed boost and sword danceV 34 Comments
I AM TERRIFIED OF WASPS. Being terrified of drills that can pierce your body IS COMMON SENSE. Beedrill (especially its mega) is so terrifying that it's badass. Vikavolt is good too but Beedrill wins because of the fear factor (pardon the pun)
Coolest Pokemon ever.
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.
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.V 46 Comments
This should be first place!
This is a legendary, a LEGENDARY!
This should be number one
He is frigging awesome deserves som first place NOOBSV 65 Comments
I LOVE leaving she's a masterpiece
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 :).V 13 Comments
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.
I love this Pokemon
This sucks... Like all the butterfree fans
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. -V 20 Comments
Vespiquen deserves to be #1
When I read her stats, I freaked out. First of all, high defense. Okay, that's not impressive, but then... Fell Stinger, DESTINY BOND (you die your opponent die with you), Confuse Ray, Poison Sting, Toxic, Fury Cutter, Power Gem, and stuff like that. But most importantly... THREE OP SIGNATURE MOVES. Attack Order is basically Slash upgraded. Defend Order makes you invulnerable. Heal Order was the same as Milk Drink (Oh man, NOBODY likes Milk Drink)... when you're trying to eat some berries to get some HP, Vespiquen had Unnerve, which stops you from doing that... wow, it was so OP it can rival Genesect. I still don't understand why it was so low :(
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
Awesome signature moves and good base stats...plus a cool evolution back story (queen bee) make this tank so much fun to play with. And destiny bond seals the deal!V 18 Comments
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
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!
Actually, a fire would delete it so not really. A ghost normal however... - fwedV 8 Comments
Aridos is great pokemon other than it's typing, though it has many weaknesses it's really strong against grass with it being bug and a poison typing. It's also really strong when battling water types as well. This pokemon does well!
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. -V 5 Comments
I love her design and she can be really strong if you train her she is amazing and underrated!
So underrated! Best bug type!
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 AquaV 18 Comments
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.
This guy is cool...that's all I need to say
even the name sounds cute - spongelover
It's just awesomeV 3 Comments
Best ability and can reck noobs, excellent support learning quick 2 part moves to get the jump on your foes. If only it had more hit ponts
He's mostly unstopable
He should be on #1
the bestV 34 Comments
WHY IT IS ON BOTTOM? I mean worse than beautifly?
SHOULD BE IN TOP 10s IT ONE TAPPED EVERY ELITE FOUR BUG TYPE POKEMON AT level 67!
He shuld be top because he's super effective against fire types - Lucariolove
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!V 12 Comments
Good for cleaning out teams in the end game
Love this thing so underrated
Accelgor is awesome it's like a bug ninja so cool
I love accelgor such a sneaky bastard
Dustox may have potential to sweep despite being weak in comparison to other pokemons. - illusion
I like it as a moth based
Dustox is awesome better than venomoth
He Awesome... but should he be near the top?
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.V 18 Comments
Isn't Parasect already in this list? - fwed
... Essentially a zombie...
Points for creativity...
(Hides under bed scared)
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
Parasect learns spore more questions?V 4 Comments
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
Ice punch, thunder punch, drain punch, and psy beam. I always thought having one as a power house was fun.V 6 Comments
This guy is a tank - fwed
This Ed about Top 10
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.V 4 Comments
I also voted for this at electric types but there it was like, 30th
thank god it's here
27!? It should be number 3 after genesect and volcarona
This thing in 27th why? This thing Is a beast combined with choice specs it destroys with T Bolt Energy Ball Bug Buzz and HP ice
Vikavolt should be top tenV 10 Comments
God has arrived.
Higher defense stat than mega aggron, toxapex,and mega steelix
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!V 12 Comments
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.
She is the most elegant and beautiful Bug type including Beautifly and she even had patterns, isn't that great?V 11 Comments
Scizor is good MEGA Scizor is op
How is scizor better than mega scizor?
They are the same thing - TENTACRUEL
Bug Fixers.V 4 Comments
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
26? The hell? This thing is badass! Quiver Dance + Sleep Powder + Bug Buzz + Sludge Bomb + Tinted Lens +V 7 Comments
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
Never before have I seen three legendaries fall to 1 incredibly slow Tanky non legendary
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.V 11 Comments
Guys it's a pie EAT IT - fwed
The best pokemon
Best bug type ever
SHOULD TOTALLY BE FIRST FOR NO APPARENT REASON!
Love this dude
Isn't this already at 9 why is there a second one? - fwed
It's a better version of ninjask if you ask me more bulk speed boost and swords dance swords dance once then into protect then baton pass
So huge and awesome, I think it's a beastV 5 Comments
Even though it is really vulnerable on fire attacks, it is the only type that could do super-effective on this bad boy. The rest are 1x or 1/2x.
With lagging tail hold item, Gyro Ball is obviously a viable choice and great STAB. Bug Bite for another STAB. Add Rapid Spin to counter Spikes, Seeds, etc. Add Explosion to the mix which would kill 99% of the time. Carried me and my team on Heart Gold.
Only problem is, it can get annihilated by fire types - fwed
Come on, really guys? Forretress is OP and he definitely shouldn't belong at 33, I mean just look at his STAB defense!
Forretress must be higher in the list. He can put hazards and do rapid spin and have nice defensesV 8 Comments
Fire weakness is countered too - fwed
Like, the hell? This beats the crap out of everyone to be honest, it should be way higher, there are other bug types that are higher on this list that are way worst than this one
Spam the crap out of liquidation. Enough said.
It's ability. Nothing more to say here.V 3 Comments
He is a very nice bug pokemon
Don't see why so low not the best bug pokemon but definitely shouldn't be below caterpie or jolitok - germshep24
cool... from the sinnoh region...
They are so awesome! They can play beautiful music and they're awesome scythes are like katanas.V 8 Comments
Venonat will wreck you into another dimension. You wont be needing drugs anymore.
He's bae u know
Venonat + Evolution = Venomoth = Life
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.
I like how its above its evolution
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
I'd put my dick in THAT mouth...V 2 Comments
I Like Joltik, okay? It's fast and evolves into galvantula which is super powerful. - Swaggy11
DON'T MIND ME, IT'S A CUTIE!
Pineco is literally my favorite Pokemon of all time. He's adorable, will drop from trees and blow up in your face, and just hops around everywhere. The absolute best
Common! Who doen't like an exploding pinecone? Number one Right Here!
Pineco is one of my favourie Pokémon...
This is a bug type!
This isn't a bug type! 1V 1 Comment
MandJTV best pokemon well bug type - TENTACRUEL
Super strong helpful and one of the strongest
It's THE BEST!
Sewaddle be banging ashes mom
NANI why is Seawaddle Numero 49 THIS BIG BOI is a GOD he can KO Arceus by just looking at him HE has the GOD of all Pokemon QUAKING in fear and makes every waman go after him
Cute, adorable and an awesome Pokemon you can't help but love
Sewaddle should be at number 1V 1 Comment
Didn't know he was a bug type to.
It's a normal type blerr - TENTACRUEL
Really he is god pokemon and then what he gets 42 really I just doubt pokemons don't know about their pokemon god
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, !V 1 Comment
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.
#l0ginhdi for life - legendary
Way cooler than caterpie
Stronger and cooler than. CaterpieV 2 Comments
Great typing! Water AND bug
Surskit is just... CUTE. Cutest pokemon ever.
If only it had an alternative evolution with a water stone or something. Bug/Water would be really great for thoswe bug catchers, who specialise in bugs...
Whoever put this Pokémon on the list spelled its name wrong...V 1 Comment
Magikarp is not a bug Pokémon. So I vote Metapod. The second strongest Pokémon.
(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!V 3 Comments
Should be number 1 really
SKORUPI IS THE BEST
