21 Accelgor

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

I love accelgor such a sneaky bastard

22 Joltik Joltik

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


23 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.

Crustle is a very good pokemon. Most of its weaknesses are phiisical so it has amazing defense also you've got many stratigies you can use such as: shell smash stratigie use she'll smash (you're brilliant defense will deal with the defense lower) then just hit them with stone edge or x Scissor and you've basically one.

Crustle is my favorite bug type. It's actually really OP if you teach it solar beam and rock wrecker.

24 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

25 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

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

Really good pokemon good to have on team and it would be really cool if it had a mega

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

Why tf that low.
It's Galvantula but way better.

27 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

Even though I love scizor I have to say escavilier is a better mon. It is a decent tank with its 105 defense/Speical defense and can work very well with assault vest due to it having the move fell stinger and other good and usable STAB moves

28 Vivillon Vivillon

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.

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

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

It a pretty beast come on

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

30 Mega Scizor

Whats wrong with the top tens mega scizor is evolution of scizor so it should be 1. - Mayank00-

If scissor is first then mega scissor should be before it

Mega scizor should always be on the top of the bug type Pokemons as Mega Scizor can defeat scizor.

SOOO COOL ATTACK and defense ARE VERY HI special decence is ok its tupid that he loses his speed

31 Caterpie Caterpie

Uh caterpie...

It's so cute somebody should push it up

Caterpie should be the best bug because logic.

I once beat a darkrai with this

32 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

33 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!

In my ORAS play through I destroyed Sidney with bug buzz. If u trained it right it can be really scary Ike when I destroyed a online Deoxys with constant Bug Buzz and Moonlight

Why so low he is the best

34 Scolipede Scolipede

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 beast

I actually think #8 fits Scolipede.

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!

Forretress must be higher in the list. He can put hazards and do rapid spin and have nice defenses

Steel and bug he is pretty dope

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

36 Kriketune

cool... from the sinnoh region...

They are so awesome! They can play beautiful music and they're awesome scythes are like katanas.

Why is kriketune way down here it's a beast. first Nando uses it in all of his battles and contest plus he made it to the Pokemon league and the contest finally. Second it learns sing at level 18 and and can bug buzz and even perish song, plus it can learn almost all tms.

Delelele Wooop All I have to say

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

I'd put my dick in THAT mouth...

This guy is very handy to irrietate your opponent's and it van learn aromatherapie

40 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

Smoke weedle everyday #weedlenation
