    and added more of the uncommon combos like
    -Grass, Leavanny
    -Rock, Crustle
    along with making the Bug/Steel combo into the most common by adding Escavalier, Durant and Genesect...if they didn't also add a fifth Poison one, Scolipede, but at least this one is more than a joke.

    Even one that stays pure to the final stage, Accelgor.

    Which is 9 lines, or 18 pokemon (compared to 12,10,14,9), including the first Bug legendary!

    So yeah... but that's not to say there aren't a few exotic combinations left (theres many less diverse though..), and if thats what you actually meant, I agree that there should be some of these asap:
    -Bug/Dark (like obvious replacement for the poison ones)
    -Bug/Psychic (this really doesnt exist yet wtf)
    -Bug/Water (F*ck Surskit.)
    theres Bug/Ice too, but that would require some worthy concept..
    Aye, the fifth generation has done a lot for Bug-types, but I still look at a list of them and find it disappointingly dominated by Flying. We might have new Bug-X types but Bugs are still largely either somewhat limited in their potential roles or relatively useless overall. It's probably just me though.
