Hmm... I'm still not set on the Metapod vs Caterpie fight. Wouldn't Metapod's iron-wall defence easily negate Caterpie's offensive attacks, allowing for Metapod to have more time to slow its opponent with string shot and then go in for the K.O. with its tackle?
That makes sense. I am sticking with my vote though.

Are you upset with the lack of Bug-types in the new generation? What kind of Bug-type would you love to see be made?

Yeah I was a bit disappointed in the lack of bugs I'd like to see a Bug/Fairy type, I think Scyther could receive another evolution turning into a Orchid Mantis that is Bug/Fairy.

Bug/Fairy would be an appropriate combo. What exactly would this Bug/Fairy look like?

That is really awesome. Could be a female counterpart, kind of like Gardevoir is to Kirlia.

Welcome to the club, Sonatron! Escavalier is a fairly decent Pokemon although admittedly I've never paid that much attention to it. What makes you like it so much? Design, moves, symbolism? Personally I think it's a little on the scary side but that's just my opinion. :p

Also I could see a bug/fairy being possible! Perhaps friendly looking flying.. things? I'm horrible at thinking up of descriptions but I'd definitely like to see something along those lines. Anyone else got any ideas of how a bug/fairy could possibly look? :o

Welcome to the club. Escavalier is a good partner, he is very strong. I have never used him in battle before but I have battled against one and they are super durable and surprisingly powerful. I like your team too, a unique array of Bug-types. Should try your team in Pokemon Showdown.

Thanks for welcoming me :D I like pretty much everything about Escavalier, he's a combination of my two favourite types, he looks like a knight, and he's really fun to fight with :D giving my bug team a go in showdown sounds like a good idea :D

Welcome to the club. You're the first to pick Ninjask, how awesome is he? I like Nincada and his 2 evolutions a lot. Powerful team you have there. Do you have that on any games or have used it in Pokemon Showdown? I like the new Mega evolutions. I have yet to use many but I like them. Isn't there like 8-12 different Vivillon patterns?

He is very awesome. Nincada is an all around great bug, especially for Mono-type runs, he's a two for the price of one pokemon. I'm working on building it on Y, I'll likely change some moves and items as the current setup just doesn't thrill me. I've only just recently returned to the online communities and so I've yet to download Showdown, my last PokeSim was Shoddy :D. I've used MegaHeracross though not competitively, I don't have access to Pinsirite and I can't find a good natured Scizor on the GTS, well one that's not asking for a stupid rare pokemon anyway, now that my router martyr'd itself I have no way of getting one . There are 18 forms of Vivillion and I only have 4. I've gotten plenty of Scatterbugs from Wondertrade but they're all either Modern or Elegant upon evolution.

Disappointment about lack of Bug-types? I'd say they still need a Bug/Dragon type. Fans have been calling for one of these for how long now?

Bug/Dragon would definitely be something that I'd want. Hopefully, it'll be something like Durant. Fast, lots of raw power and generally okay when it comes to defense. Perhaps it could even be a legendary? Anyway, I kind of see Vibrava and Flygon as Bug/Dragon already. What do you guys think?

I definitely see the Trapinch line as Bugs, I mean they're in the Bug egg group after all. I would really like a Bug/Dragon, I somewhat expected a Mega Flygon with this typing, I guess I just like to hope for crazy things. :D

I'd also really like toe see a Bug/Dark or a Bug/Fairy. Maybe something based on a Whip Scorpion and a Poodle Moth respectively. I've linked to pics of them just in case. :D

I agree! Add to the fact that it has those magnified eyes, small wings and a general bug look about it, they'd be perfect for the typing. A mega evolution for Flygon could possibly be Bug/Dragon. After all, they surprised us with a Water/Dark Gyarados. I would of thought dragon. Guess we can expect the unexpected then?

I've never really thought about Bug/Dark. It seems pretty interesting although most bug types have a general aura of darkness around them. Spinarak's line, anybody? Scary moths? Spiders? I'm surprised there hasn't been one yet. Perhaps previous bug types could be retyped? If we were to have a new one though, I'd imagine it go along the lines of a poisonous creature such as scorpions or wasps. Those things are pretty scary, after all.

Answer the current topic: Trapinch family for Dragon/Bug retyping?

Yes, definitely! All three of them - Trapinch, Vibrava and Flygon - all have insect-like characteristics: insect-like body and wings, compound-like eyes, just to name a few. Also, the Dragon/Bug typing is really unique as there isn't any Pokemon with that type combination as of yet as far as I know. It'll definitely make a great force to be reckoned with in the games and in the competitive field.

Trapinch would have to be Bug/Ground, while Vibrava and Flygon would be Bug/Dragon. So what Bug-type moves would they have? Probably Bug Buzz and X-scissor at least.

Welcome to the club. I freakin' love Volcarona. Who knew a Bug/Fire type would work? It has such an awesome design and colors too. I definitely think Trapinch and its evolutionary line should inherit the Bug typing. Trapinch would be Ground/Bug (or Bug/Ground), and Vibrava and Flygon would be Bug/Dragon. They would still have their Ground moves, but would have Bug moves like X-Scissor, Bug Bite, Bug Buzz and Signal Beam. They even say they are insectoid-like, so it's only fitting to retype them.

I kinda like Flygon as Ground/Dragon, but it would make sense for it to be Bug/Dragon considering its evolution line (especially by looking at Vibrava). The only problem I would have with it becoming part bug really would be that I'd have too many bugs in my battling team XD and that's just sort of selfish of me. Either way, a Bug/Dragon would be epic!

Welcome to the club. Venomoth is a great choice, quick and can learn a vast variety of moves. I love scarab beetles. They should add one in generation VII. Perhaps they could be a Bug/Dark type, as scarab beetles are known to hide in dark places, like Egyptian tombs.

This hive is getting sleepy!

Scarab beetle would be pretty cool, and a Bug/Dark-type would be pretty awesome as well. No Psychic-type is getting through that.
