In general, Bug Pokémon have low HP and Defense and decent Attack and Speed scores.
Bug is weak to Fire, Flying, and Rock, however, it's strong against Grass, Psychic and Dark.

My fave Bug-type is a four-way tie between Pinsir, Beedrill, Heracross, and Scolipede.

Noob out.

My favorite is definitely Galvantula. Bug and electric is a good combination.

I like bug types but it's unfortunate they didn't get good until gen 3.

What's your favourite Bug type pokemon? Why? My favorite would have to be Scyther. I'm not quite sure why. I've only had him on a team once. Mostly, I just like his design.
What's your least favourite bug type pokemon? Why? The Wurmple lines. (Both of them.) I just find that they're terrible in battle.
How well do you like the Bug type pokemon? In general? Not at all.
Why do you, or don't you, like the Bug Pokemon? To be perfectly honest, I find them (overall) weak. There are other types that can take on their type strengths (ex; fire for grass) and I don't like the way most of them look. It's not an "Ew! Bugs!" thing. Bugs actually don't bug me too much in real life. (heh, there's a pun there. not intended.) I just don't like the way most of them look.

I like Crustle the best.
What's your least favourite bug type pokemon? Why?
Accelgor. super ugly.
How well do you like the Bug type pokemon? Why do you, or don't you, like the Bug Pokemon?
I used to not care for them in the least before gen V because of how weak they all were. However, since gen V their stats have picked up a bit and there are some major powerhouses added to the mix.

What's your favourite Bug type pokemon? Why?
Galvantula, Butterfree, Heracross, Scizor, and Scyther! I like they're design.

What's your least favourite bug type pokemon? Why?
Metapod. I just hate it for no reason. And Weedle too.

How well do you like the Bug type pokemon?
Not much, seeing that I hate bugs in real life.

Why do you, or don't you, like the Bug Pokemon?
I like them because they evolve very easily, I don't like them because they remind me of bugs. ;~;

What's your favourite Bug type pokemon? Why?
Volcarona, because moths are my favorite kind of bug & it's POWERFUL!!!
I also like Galvantula & Scizor.

What's your least favourite bug type pokemon? Why?
Can't really think of 1...

How well do you like the Bug type pokemon?
I'm indifferent of Bug pokemon, since I don't use them due to being too weak for my liking. but when I get White, I'll be using more Bugs, namly Galvantula & especially Volcarona.

Why do you, or don't you, like the Bug Pokemon?
Like I said, I'm indifferent toward them.
For the most part, that is...
I really like Volcarona for said reasons...
& Galvantula looks so huggable! <3

My favorite bug Pokemon is Butterfree. Why? Well, even though design-wise and stat-wise I like the "cool" bugs more. (Heracross, Pinsir, Syther line.) however, Butterfree is the only Bug Pokemon that I have actually used, and liked.

My least favorite bug is Weedle, the entire line. My reason is that where the Caterpie line does have redeeming factors (high special attack, psychic types moves later on.) Weedle has no real special qualities, aside from a semi-decent defense. So, in my mind, Weedle is just the sucky cousin of Caterpie.

I have a mixed opinion on bugs. There are some bugs I like, and they share some qualities I like, for example, the really fast leveling helps in the meta game. However, there are quite a few bugs I don't like, and most bugs are often outclassed by other types of Pokemon.

I'm pretty sure I already explained my reasons why.

Favorite Bug Pokemon: Tie between Scizor, Yanmega, Scolipede and Volcarona. All 4 have cool designs. Scizor plows through most opponents with Technician Bullet Punch, Yanmega's Tinted Lens gives its STABs perfect coverage, Scolipede's movepool is excellent compared to its fellow Bug/Poison Pokemon and Volcarona's typing is one of the typings I saw coming when B/W were released.

Least favorite Bug Pokemon: Wurmple. What it evolves into is unpredictable. Also, Leavanny because it's walled by too many things.

How well do you like the Bug Pokemon?: They're okay, but not the best type out there.

Why do you or don't you like the Bug Pokemon?:What I like about them is that there are plenty of insects in this world and a good percentage of real-world bugs have been turned to Pokemon.

What's your favourite Bug type Pokemon? Why?
Easily Heracross. For one thing, it's of the few Bug critters that can pack a really powerful punch, plus we have Heracross to thank for the glory that is Megahorn. It also looks completely badass, and is one of my favourite Pokemon anyway... so, yeah!

What's your least favourite Bug type Pokemon? Why?
Probably Weedle, mainly for all those times it would Poison Sting me when I was trying to train my Pokemon to beat Brock all those years ago in Blue version. There are probably worse ones (like Surskit, for example) but Weedle really bugs the crap out of me! (A PUN! Completely unintentional!)

How well do you like Bug type Pokemon?
Apart from Heracross, I harbour no strong feelings towards Bug type Pokemon.

Why do you, or don't you, like Bug type Pokemon?
Most of them are extremely fragile and their strength against Psychic and Dark types are overshadowed by Dark and Fighting types respectively, which - for the most part - can take a hit or two before going down. In terms of design, some of them are OK, but as battlers they leave a lot to be desired.

Bugs are among some of my favorite pokemon, which is odd because I've never been a particularly big fan of insects irl. I guess I like bug pokemon because I like more technical and strategic battles to pure offense or pure defense, and bugs are next to ghosts and poisons in terms of accomplishing that end. XD

Beedrill, Ariados, Forrestress, Shedinja, and Ninjask have been my top five favorite bugs forever, but GenV threw a monkey wrench at everything by introducing Galvantula, Volcarona, and Scolipede to the equation. XD

What's your favourite Bug type pokemon? Why? Vespiquen. I have no clue why; she just seems to be on the stronger end regarding bug types.
What's your least favourite bug type pokemon? Why? The cocoons. They are pretty much useless. XD
How well do you like the Bug type pokemon? Eh, they're okay. Not my favorite type.
Why do you, or don't you, like the Bug Pokemon? In the long run, they seem pretty useless (except I guess we could get some use out of Heracross).

Natnat! This is my favorite. I mean...look at it! Isn't it just the greatest thing ever in existence? ^-^ It's too adorable.

http://imgboot.com/images/aragornbird/617.gif

I also have a really big attachment to this one. I don't know what it is about him. Maybe it's just his badass vibe. But I really love Accelgor.

http://imgboot.com/images/aragornbird/469.gif

This is just...no. :( Go away. Shoo.

Overall, Bug Pokemon are some of my favorite. Probably because I like so many of them. I saved you the time by not listed all my favorite bugs though.

There are several bug Pokémon that I actually really like, making Bug types one of my top favourites!

But my overall favourite two Bug types are...

What's your favourite Bug type pokemon? Why?
What's your least favourite bug type pokemon? Why?
How well do you like the Bug type pokemon?

Why do you, or don't you, like the Bug Pokemon?






My favorite Bug-type Pokemon...? Yeegh. Let's see..:

Scyther: it looks VICIOUS. Freaking scythes for hands, it can fly, and it looks...powerful. A praying mantis Pokemon gone right, indeed.

Scizor: How could you NOT love that sleek red metallic skin? It's STEEL-type and metallic, as well as having more effective pincers than its pre-evo. All around BA.

Yanmega (and Yanma): Their anime cry is awesome, and a mega dragonfly is freaking awesome. I REALLY wish it was a Bug/Dragon-type Pokemon with Levitate, though!

Heracross: WHACK. WHACK. WHACK. WHACK. Wild Heracross used Megahorn! The foe was flung away! A well-built Pokemon with cobalt blue skin, a horn that combats even the toughest of foes, and awesome game and anime cries! And it's part-Fighting, based on a RHINOCEROS BEETLE!

Spinarak: I like the color scheme a bit more than Ariados's. I loved this thing ever since I saw the cute faces on its abdomen. :) And the shiny coloration is awesome as well!

Beautifly (and Wurmple): some of the first Bug-types I came across in Sapphire. Beautifly with its majestic, regal look in flight, while Wurmple is cute with a nice color scheme. Amazing.

Masquerain (and Surskit): Eyes to ward off any foes, with Surskit having a cute cry and Masquerain having an intimidating cry and ability! Their names sound awesome, and Masquerain is quite threatening. And it can even Hydro Pump its foes away! Not to mention that Masquerain signals the arrival of rain.

Ninjask: Although real-life cicadas are freaking pesky as heck, this guy looks awesome and posses and awesome ability. And it's a FREAKING NINJA CICADA!

Shedinja: This quirky little guy is a bit strange, but cute and somehow cool in his own way. Awesome ability, though crappy HP.

Wormadam and Mothim: Nice designs and simple names.

Vespiquen: Freaking awesome name, and a perfect parallel to Beedrill. With three fitting signature moves, as well!

Kricketune: Awesome name and design that incorporates a violin - I can't wait to hear its cry, which I've heard a lot of people buzzing about on the interwebs!

Sewaddle: Haven't seen the evos yet, but this guy is cute as heck.

Scolipede: I wish it were called "Venipede"...either way, a monstrous millipede Pokemon that can learn Earthquake, with an unusual color scheme to boot, comes with its own awesomeness as well.

Crustle: Unfamiliar with its line, but definitely cute.

Galvantula (and Joltik): AN ELECTRIC SPIDER. AWESOME BY DEFAULT. I cannot wait to nickname this thing Tarantesla. ^^

Ulgamoth (and Larvesta): AN INFERNAL MOTH. AWESOME BY DEFAULT. Volcarona will be an awesome nickname for it.

Beedrill (and Kakuna; Weedle): Ever since Generation 1, this guy has been Twin-Needlin' its foes to 0 HP. Bring back Twineedle's ability to Poison Steel-types, plz! Kakuna still creeps the heck out of me despite its coolness, and Weedle is cute as well (STOP POISONING ME IN FIRERED!)

Butterfree (and Metapod; Caterpie): Another classic, the evolution of Butterfree in the anime was well celebrated. An intriguing Pokemon as well, with its Psychic abilities. Butterfree's pre-evos are classic as well, with Caterpie being one of the first Pokemon viewers ever saw. VERY cute, too!

Venomoth: Butterfree has an edge on it, but the design is still likable in its own right.

Ledyba and Ledian: They're just so...Pokemon-ish! Great ladybug warriors, indeed.

Parasect (and Paras): Awesome cries, especially the anime one. PAIRRRRRRRRR-A-SECT.

Volbeat/Illumise: Awesome in theory; a firefly/lightning bug Pokemon! WHY AREN'T THEY PART-ELECTRIC-TYPE WITH LEVITATE?!!

Pineco: Nice teal metallic design, and prone to Explosions!

Pinsir: Guillotined me so many freaking times in the Battle Tower (unfairly! >:[), but this guy is still great.

Escavalier/Accelgor: I just feel that the names could have been better somehow... I dislike the trade mechanic a bit, but their origins are awesome; especially Escavalier's, who steals its opponents shell for usage. Accelgor's design is somewhat awkward and uninspired, but I'm glad we get a Bug-type ninja/mummy.

Armaldo: BATTLE ARMOR PREVENTS CRITICAL HITS! Armaldo used AncientPower! Cool Pokemon, and I'm glad he manages to incorporate the stegosaurus tail into the design. I have fond memories of receiving Anorith, my first ever fossil Pokemon. :]

GenOsect: I'm going to familiarize myself with him come Gray Version, but his design is freaking awesome (color palette, I'm slightly iffy about) and his ability to shift Drive Formes via Cassettes is amazing. The only other thing I can mention about this guy, who is undoubtedly on track to grow more awesome and BA as time goes on, is: DENNIS DENNIS DENNIS DENNIS DENNIS...

Shuckle and Forretress receives Honorable Mention for being themselves. I love Forretress's high defenses, but I hate how Forretress copies Scizor's typing.

Also, Beedrill and Scizor so need to get back into Super Smash Brothers (Genosect would be awesome in there, as well).

Top 10:

------

Least favorite Bug-type? Possibly Durant, but not by much. It just looks too Fakemon-ish to me...it's not that bad, though. :\ Also, Dustox. It looks a little ugly, but I've grown tolerant of it.

Bug Pokemon are nice when combined with another type. Bug/Flying and pure Bug-types somewhat dismay me due to their plethora of weaknesses. :( I also dislike it when Scizor's typing gets copied - and that happened twice three times since then! I guess "exoskeleton=metal" a lot...? I also hate how they're resistant to Fighting-type - I mean, the typical way to dispatch of spiders and ants in real life is to SMUSH THEM WITH YOUR FIST! Only if stingers and fangs are there do you get adverse complications...usually. -.-

Also, I really hope we can get a legendary Bug-type Pokemon boxart mascot some day... (and Giratina and Celebi don't really count... >_>)

LOL...I've been thinking that Celebi was Bug/Grass all this time! Turns out that it's Grass/Psychic. XD Well, at least we have Bug/Grass (Paras/Parasect) AND Grass/Psychic Pokemon type combinations existing! :cer_laugh: So Celebi's not as weak as I thought... When you've never owned a certain event Pokemon, they can do this to you. >_>

Bug definitely isn't my favorite type, but I don't hate it. On some Pokemon, Bug is combined with some other types that make it pretty cool.

Very similar to Woobat's faves, except I like Scyther more than Scizor. An electric tarantula is just too awesome! Probably my absolute favorite of all the bugs. Before Generation 5 rolled around Scyther was my favorite. A praying mantis with scythes for hands? That's a nice, intimidating design! Another one from Gen 5 I really like is Volcanora. For some reason I really like its design; it's also Bug/Fire! This generation actually has a lot of cool Bug types.

What's your least favourite bug type pokemon? Why?
I never really liked the Wurmple line, partly because it's too much like the Caterpie line, and because I don't think Beautifly's and Dustox's designs are that great. I don't really like Burmy's line either, just because of how they look (except Mothim) But I don't really hate any of them.

How well do you like the Bug type pokemon and why?
For battles, I don't usually use them (if ever), but that might change for Generation 5. As far as their designs go, in general I really like what they've come up with, especially in comparison to their real-life counterparts. I don't really like real bugs, but Bug Pokemon are interesting :)

BEEDRILL is a GIANT BEE/WASP/HORNET WITH SPEARS AS ARMS
KAKUNA is WEARING A TIE

And Weedle is cool, too, so Beedrill line is the undisputed leader for me.
Honorable mention to Scyther (looks cool, but not as cool as Beedrill) and Butterfree (in-game god)

In general, I love the Bug type, it's right after Grass for me. Funny enough, I'm not too fond of Paras/-ect though.

Top 3 would be: Scyther, Parasect and Volcarona.

Scyther because it hands down looks awesome, Parasect I've always been partial to and Volcarona I love that it's part fire.

What's your least favourite bug type pokemon? Why?

I'm not entirely sure... Forretress maybe? I'm not too keen on the design.

How well do you like the Bug type pokemon?

They wouldn't be my favourite types but I don't dislike them either :) Having never really used them before, I'd like to include them on a team of mine in the future to see how well I like them then :)

Why do you, or don't you, like the Bug Pokemon?

They're not that common except early on so it's cool to see trainers using different types, such as Bug :) I actually like a lot of their designs - the only thing is I have so many other favourites there's never really enough room on my team :(

Heracross. I'll just name one. I have so many favorites though. Heracross is cool and awesome. It was love at first sight, I mean.. come on. <3

What's your least favourite bug type pokemon? Why?
Weedle? idk, I don't really have any bug pokemon I don't like. ;o

How well do you like the Bug type pokemon?
As much as I love Fire, Water, Grass, Electric, etc. (you get the idea) type pokemon. My love for pokemon isn't based on it's type, so yeah.

Why do you, or don't you, like the Bug Pokemon?
Bug pokemon are awesome. :/

What's your favourite Bug type pokemon? Why?
Probably Butterfree or Scizor. I always thought that Scizor was pretty cool and Butterfree, well, I fell in love with it because of the Anime. Ash's Butterfree was so cute. <3 Not to forget that Scizor is pretty good when it comes to competitive battling.

What's your least favourite bug type pokemon? Why?
The Weedle evolutionary line. The really.. bug me. I always considered them to be the Caterpie evolutionary line's evil counterpart. :x

How well do you like the Bug type pokemon?
I'm fine with them, it's not much of a liking or disliking. I love all Bug type moves though; I find them pretty amazing for some reason.

What's your favourite Bug type pokemon? Why? This is a toughie because I love so many of them. My favorite is probably a tie between Vespiquen and Volcarona. Vespiquen is a bamf with some awesome exclusive moves and Volcarona is the king of Bug-types (vastly superior to Genesect).
What's your least favourite bug type pokemon? Why? I don't really have a least favorite but I would probably go with Ledian or Wormadam. They're both pretty mediocre and don't have redeeming qualities like other low level Bug-types.
How well do you like the Bug type pokemon? It's my third favorite type behind Psychic and Grass types. They may be one of the "weaker" types but I always love their designs. Too bad every major trainer in the games has been pretty boring (Burgh is okay).
Why do you, or don't you, like the Bug Pokemon? Like I mentioned above, I love their designs. Bug-type moves are usually pretty cool and have nice animations.

What's your favourite Bug type pokemon? Why?
Forretress has always been my favorite Bug type for some reason. I also like Venonat/Venomoth, Yanmega, Galvantula, and Leavanny.

What's your least favourite bug type pokemon? Why?
Hmm... I'd have to say probably Masquerain, I never really liked it.

How well do you like the Bug type pokemon?
They're ok, not my favorite type, but a good type that I occasionally use. It's definitely gotten better over the years.

Why do you, or don't you, like the Bug Pokemon?
They've got their quirks, some of the random types they resist, and some of the types they're strong against can make then quite useful.

Scizor. A badass metal bug with a cool design, nice stats, good abilities, nice moveset, only one weakness and cool cry. He's also a boss in competive battling.
What's your least favorite Bug type Pokemon? Why?
Ehhh.....Masquerain. It's pretty forgettable in everything it does. It's design is just meh too.
How well do you like the Bug type Pokemon?
Well, they're not my favorites, but they're far from being the worst.
Why do you, or don't you, like the Bug Pokemon?
I'm starting to like Bug Pokemon more, thanks to 5th Gen adding a bunch of awesome and powerful bugs.

Scizor because it's so awesome lol. Design is fantastic, and it's a wrecking machine in competitive play.

Strictly for its design. It's so cool, and it's got an interesting typing.
http://veekun.com/dex/media/black-white/617.png
Sooo cool looking. How can you not like a ninja-based bug Pokemon? It's very fast as well.

My goodness. This thing demolishes after Quiver Dance. It's so pumped. I also love its flavor text in the games, so epic.
What's your least favourite bug type pokemon? Why?
I'm not too big on Weedle. It's got such a weak design, don't like it one bit.
How well do you like the Bug type pokemon?
Not huge on them. I hardly ever use them, though with the release of Generation 5 I've found a new love for the ones I've mentioned. Apart from that, I consider the type among my least preferred.
Why do you, or don't you, like the Bug Pokemon?
Generally not big on their stats and designs.

Surskit and Masquerain are probably my favorites for their cute/strange designs. I like the bug types that don't just look like real bugs. That's kind of boring. Masquerain's design in particular is great because it's not normal, but it still works.

I don't really have any least favorites. With bugs in general I like the ones I like and ignore the rest.

Never have been a fan of Bug Pokemon since back in the old Yellow days, none of them seemed strong enough to accomplish what I expected out of my team. (For reference, I would expect my Bug pokemon to be able to handle 2 full trainers without ever going past half life like my other Pokemon could). However, the new species line in B/W has been put on my top favorite pokemon list. The Venipede evolution line. I just love it. Scyther has a cool look as well, so he is going to be runner-up.

Mine is Vespiquen because she looks awesome and has pretty decent stats. Shame her typing leaves so many weaknesses.

My least favorite would have to be the Wurmple line. They don't even look somewhat cool like Butterfree and Beedrill...

I don't use Bug-types that often because I have a hard time fitting them into my in-game teams. I did use a Vespiquen for a Pearl challenge, though, and was pleased with its performance on there.

What's your favourite Bug type pokemon? Butterfree. Why? Basically, it is beautiful and is, in my opinion, the original bug Pokémon. It has a decent moveset and the overall look is very nice through the generations.
What's your least favourite bug type pokemon? Kricketot. Why? I honestly think this is one of the most ugly Pokémon on the face of the planet. It is not cute in any way, it is completely useless, has a flipping coat on for God's sake, and just looks freakishly unlike a cricket.
How well do you like the Bug type pokemon? Out of 10, I would give bug Pokémon a 3.
Why do you, or don't you, like the Bug Pokemon? I don't like bug Pokémon too much because they are no that helpful during games, and only a handful have good/decent sprites or movesets, and some of their names are just terrible.

Omg. This is hard. I love all Bug pokemon. But if I had to choose, I think it would have to be Spinarak.
My current obsession, however, is Whirlipede <3

It would have to be Shidinja. I just plain hate it...

I LOVE BUG POKEMON. It is my favorite type <3

I think it's because I love bugs in real life. They are so unique and misunderstood.

Beedrill because it looks awesome and was one of the first Pokemon I ever used. It is my 2nd favourite Pokemon.

I've never really liked the look of it to be honest. The fact that it's so annoying to get is very annoying to. The fact it can use Destiny Bond did come in handy in one of my challenges though.

How well do you like the Bug type pokemon?
I like the Bug Type Pokemon rather well. It was hard for me to pick a least favourite. A lot of my favourite Pokemon are Bug types. Some of them include: Parasect, Beedrill, Butterfree, Venomoth, etc.

Why do you, or don't you, like the Bug Pokemon?
I like Bug Pokemon because they look cool and are easy to train. They can be good in battle as well.

http://archives.bulbagarden.net/media/upload/7/7c/Spr_5b_012_m.pngMy very first bug pokemon that I caught and trained.
http://archives.bulbagarden.net/media/upload/7/77/Spr_5b_213.pngI like it because Shuckle have kinda "unbalanced" stat and strategies on using it.

http://archives.bulbagarden.net/media/upload/0/02/Spr_5b_558.pngThis pokemon just look so wrong. It just like a lump of soil being given a pair of pincers.
How well do you like the Bug type pokemon?

I'll try to build every team from Platinum and onward with at least 1 bug type pokemon in it.
Why do you, or don't you, like the Bug Pokemon?

They are better alternatives for me against dark type pokemon, plus, they can take care of Psychic Pokemon too.

What's your favourite Bug type pokemon? Why?
There are many! Scizor, Volcarona, Ninjask/Shedinja, Vespiquen and perhaps also Scolipede and Galvantula. It's hard to choose just one over the others.

My reasons for choosing those as my favourites mostly have to do with designs and such (Volcarona and Scolipede are really pretty/cool, Scizor is neatly streamlined, Shedinja is delightfully creepy, Ninjask has nostalgia value, Vespiquen has a fun cry and an imaginative design, Galvantula is seriously cute), although I do respect some of them also for their effectiveness in battles.

What's your least favourite bug type pokemon? Why?
Kricketune. I think it's the mustache that ruins it for me, because even the females have it and it's kinda... tacky. I kind of like its cry though.

How well do you like the Bug type pokemon?
They're pretty cool I guess? It's hard to say because in every type, there are great pokemon and less great ones. In-game they aren't half bad, 5th gen bugs are even better (don't know much about the competitive battling side).

Why do you, or don't you, like the Bug Pokemon?
I guess I like them because there are many bug-types with great designs! The fact that I've always been fascinated by insects and arachnids and other critters in real life also has something to do with this, I think.

What's your favorite Bug type Pokemon? Why?
Really tough choise, considering I like a whole lt of them, but if I had to choose one it'd be:
Heracross! It looks cool, and they usually seem very friendly. and they're also able to whoop some serious butt.

What's your least favorite Bug type Pokemon? Why?
Volcorona, I know it's strength is amazing, but it's just one of the most ugly pokemon...

How well do you like the Bug type Pokemon?
They're not my favorite, but I like them pretty much.

Why do you, or don't you, like the Bug Pokemon?
Most of them look cool, and have original typing. They can learn a variety of moves too.

What's your favourite Bug type pokemon? Why?
Scizor and Scyther. They just look incredible (although Scyther's BW sprite is terrible) and dangerous. Ledian is pretty cute as well.

What's your least favourite bug type pokemon? Why?
The Wurmple Family, they're just ugly and rubbish.

How well do you like the Bug type pokemon?
Outside of Scyther, Scizor and occasionally Herecross I never use bug pokemon, I'm just not a fan of them and they aren't particularly brilliant at what they do.

Why do you, or don't you, like the Bug Pokemon?
I hate to say it, but for the most part they're weak. Their use as a counter for Dark, Psychic and Grass types are limited because of Fighting, Dark and Fire/Flying which hit harder and can take hits. Most of the decent Bug type moves such as X Scissor and Signal Beam can be taught to more useful pokemon as well. One thing I will give them though is that they have some of the best pokemon designs around.

What's your favourite Bug type pokemon? Why?
It's Venipede. It's just extremely cute and I can't let it evolve. ^^
What's your least favourite bug type pokemon? Why?
Wormadam, but I don't hate her.
How well do you like the Bug type pokemon?
I really like them. They're my second favourite type after Ice.
Why do you, or don't you, like the Bug Pokemon?
I like them because they have the best designs out of all Pokemon types. ^^

What's your favourite Bug type pokemon? Why?
I love Scolipede, so much. It's cute and big! I love big Pokemon.

What's your least favourite bug type pokemon? Why?
Leavanny. It's ugly and it's annoying.

How well do you like the Bug type pokemon?
It's not my favorite type, but there's plenty of Bug type Pokemon I like, so.

Why do you, or don't you, like the Bug Pokemon?
They are awesome (even some of them would suck in-game or so).

What's your favorite Bug type Pokemon? Why?
I kind of like Skorupi. I like Skorupi sprite compared to other the other bug Pokemon.

What's your least favorite Bug type Pokemon? Why?
Beedril. It's just kind of... scary looking...

How well do you like the Bug type Pokemon?
Let's just say the only Gen I ever used them in was 4th Gen.

Why do you, or don't you, like the Bug Pokemon?
I don't really like bug Pokemon. I just don't see any real use for them on my team.

What's your favourite Bug type pokemon? Why?
- My favourite bug type is definitely Ledyba, because it was the first bug type I knew (I always thought Caterpie was grass) and I just think it's really cute. ^_^
What's your least favourite bug type pokemon? Why?
- Metapod. I just think it's pretty pointless, it only really knows Harden and Tackle and because of that I find them really difficult to level up...
How well do you like the Bug type pokemon?
- They aren't really my favourite type because there's not that many of them and sometimes it's difficult to distinguish between bug and grass types which makes them not seem like a proper type to me.
Why do you, or don't you, like the Bug Pokemon?
- Well they're hard to distinguish and they look to much like real bugs, and real bugs really freak me out. D:

What's your favourite Bug type pokemon? Why?
- it used to be masquerain, but now it's volcarona. about time we got a fire type bug! it's pretty strong as well.

What's your least favourite bug type pokemon? Why?
- mothim. it's just a generic bug/flying type that just has nothing interesting about it at all.

How well do you like the Bug type pokemon?
- quite well. they're not the best type, but most of them are quite interesting.

Why do you, or don't you, like the Bug Pokemon?
- how most of them seem to look a lot different to each other. for example, butterfree and beautifly look hardly anything alike yet they're both butterfly pokemon.

What's your favourite Bug type pokemon? Why?
Got to go with Parasect here, but Beedrill, Pinsir and Heracross are also way up there. Galvantula and Ariados should be honorable mentions.

What's your least favourite bug type pokemon? Why?
There's a couple of bug types I'm not a fan of, but I personally find Crustle, Volcarona and Genesect to be among the least aesthetically attractive ones.

How well do you like the Bug type pokemon?
I'm a big fan of Bug-types, not as much as Poison or Ground types, but they're up there.

Why do you, or don't you, like the Bug Pokemon?
I think most Bug Pokémon look very good aesthetically (that's my sole basis on picking favorites), especially after doing a Bug monotype on my Pokémon Blue.

Favorites?
Shuckle. Who doesn't love a nice defence EVed Shuckle? Pair 'em with a tyranitar and the berlin wall would shudder in your presence. :)

Galvantula is pretty awesome as well. Agility and an Electro ball and they are down. He basically took out the psychic E4 single handedly. He forever resides in my heart.

I also like Forretress for his ability to set up SR/S/TS.

Least Favorites
Eh, I never really liked Illumise, Volbeat, Kricketote, or Krickitune. Stupid designs I guess?

Overall I like the type combos that come with bugs.
