Bug-type Pokémon ~ November 17 - 24





Welcome to the Favorite Pokémon Tournament here in Pokémon Voting Polls, where we aim to determine who PokéCommunity’s favorite Pokémon is! This will be a grand undertaking that will span across a couple of months, where we will start with hundreds of Pokémon, in hopes to rank the most popular Pokémon in the eyes of you- the members of the PokéCommunity!

If you haven't already, please read through the rest of the Rules/FAQ below to catch up to speed with what this tournament is all about:


Spoiler:
  • Every week, there will be a new poll stickied at the top of PVP. Each thread will have a different elemental type, which will include a list of Pokémon to vote on.
  • You aren’t required to pick just one Pokémon- you can vote for as many as you like to ensure your favorites get through. The Pokémon with the most votes at the end of the week will face off against the other winning Pokémon in a final poll to crown the champion!
  • Not only will the winning Pokémon from each poll move on to the final vote, but they'll be featured in Pokémon Voting Polls' forum splash for a week.
  • In order to preserve space, we’ve grouped all of the applicable evolutions in a Pokémon family together. If a family rather than an individual were to win the tournament, we would hold one extra run-off poll to decide the most popular member of the family.
  • In the event of a tie at the end of the week, Brendino will have the tie-breaking vote.
  • Legendary Pokémon are not included in this round of voting. Don’t worry, though- they’ll be voted upon near the end of the tournament to round out the final number of candidates.
  • Furthermore, members who vote and post for a majority of weeks during the tournament will receive an emblem depicting the winning Pokémon!
  • If there are any questions that you need answered, feel free to leave a comment in this thread or send a VM to Brendino to get it sorted out.


NOTE: Because of the number of Bug-type Pokémon and the limited number of poll spaces, not all eligible Pokémon could be included.
If you want to vote for an unlisted Bug-type, check the "Other Bug-type Pokémon" option represented by a (?), and leave a post with your vote.


Now that you know what the tournament is all about, what are you waiting for? Polls will remain open until November 24th, so get voting!

Accelgor, hands down. I was never able to use one during the main game due to its funky evolution method, but I really like the stat distribution, the design, and of course, the shiny.

Bug is again another type I don't have a lot of faves for, but still a fair share of votes:

Caterpie line - Mainly because of Butterfree, it's one of my faves of the original 151 and it has some good early-game usage for its use of Sleep Powder, Stun Spore and Poison Powder to inflict status.

Yanma line - Yanma and Yanmega are among my fave Bug-types ever. I loved the designs of these two, and Yanmega is one heck of a speedy hard-hitter. I loved Yanmega even more thanks to Jessie in the anime.

Sewaddle line - I know their typing gives them a lot of weaknesses, but I love how cute this evolution line is. Leavanny is actually not too bad of a Pokemon to use in-game thanks to its good Attack stat and access to moves like X-Scissor and Leaf Blade.

Joltik line - 5th Gen sure gave us some interesting Bug-types and this line is really good. The Bug/Electric mix is an odd one, but Galvantula can really pack a punch with Compound Eyes-boosted Thunders that are almost near 100% accurate. Joltik is also so adorable!

Larvesta line - Volcarona is again another strong Bug with an odd typing. It becomes an incredibly strong special sweeper once it gets Quiver Dance going. Plus it's very beautiful.

Scatterbug line - They may be the only new Bug-types in Kalos but I love Vivillon a lot. The geographical location concept for the form differences was really fun and definitely encourages more global trading if you want to collect all the different Vivillon forms. My fave of the bunch happens to be my native pattern, the River Pattern.

Deelelelewoop? xD

Anyways, I love bug type pokémon so choosing only some favorites from this many is difficult. I've got to go with Butterfree, Scizor, Heracross, Masquerain, Escavalier and Volcarona though.

Butterfree, the original butterfly and cute and great in the games <3 Scyther and Scizor are too badass to not be on my list. They fly and they have slashing attacks and they are bipedal - those are great things when I choose favorite pokémon ^^ Heracross is somewhat the same, but even cuter. Loved it in the anime! Masquerain I've realized is wonderful, never used it in the games but to RP with, it was lovely. It's super cute, also. I do like Leavanny, but Escavalier is a bit better somehow so I'm choosing to only pick a few of the awesome bugs of Unova. Escavalier is a knight, come on. It's cool :3 And lastly, Volcarona. It's pretty much too majestic to not have me as a fan.

Wish Vibrava could be listed here as well, it's really cool and bug-like but it's not a bug type. So nope.

WHERE IS DWEBBLE :( I voted for Yanmega and 'Other' (Dwebble!). Yanmega is awesome because she's such a fun Pokémon to use and is a great member on almost any competitive team, and Dwebble is simply adorable - what else is needed? These are both Pokémon that I've used countless times and I'm sure I will many times more ♥

I voted:

Venonat
- It's a cute little furry fluffy purple bug and it would make a nice pillow. Venomoth is okay, too.

Forretress - I dunno, but it looks like a bug that needs a hug or something, all hidden away in its metal shell. I like it because it's a little odd shaped.

Masquerain - Just the most elegant bug there is in all of the Pokeverse.

In terms of looks, I love Butterfree and Beautifly. They're just so, y'know… beautiful. xD No, really; they're pretty. I like Vivillon as well, and am a big fan of all its forms. Meadow form would have to be my most favorite, as the colors compliment each other very nicely. Competitive-wise, Scizor and Forretress are two of the bests. Scizor—it's quite excellent offensively, and can take down almost any Pokémon with just a single Bullet Punch or Superpower. As for Forretress, it plays a better role on the defensive side. Its defenses are gargantuan, and can take in plenty of hits for you. Aside from these two, Volcarona is pretty good as well. After one boost with Quiver Dance, it could start wreaking havoc immediately.

    The best thing about Bug type Pokémon is that they don't exiswt irl. I sure wouldn't want a Scolipede chasing after me x_x

    My first vote went to Ariados because I've used it so many times in the games. I used one in my first time playing XD and that's one of my oldest memories of playing Pokémon games. I also used one not too long ago when I last played HeartGold.

    I also voted for Shuckle. I've never used Shuckle but after watching the episode "A Better Pill to Swallow," I had to vote for it. That episode is the funniest episode of the anime that I have ever watched, even funnier than Wobbuffet. Everyone should check it out :P

    Last but not least, I voted for Shedinja. This Pokémon is unique in so many ways, like its evolution method, type combination, amount of HP, and ability. The haunted exoskeleton concept is really cool and I like both Ghost and Bug type Pokémon.

    Aww, I didn't know that we could vote for multiple. :/

    Oh well, I voted only once and I voted for butterfree. I voted butterfree because that little guy is so cute, and imo is one of the better bug pokemon. QD butterfree can dominte in NU and become a pain with sleep powder.

    If I knew I could've voted multiple times I probably would've voted for Volcarona. One of my fvorite from BW, Volcarona is a boss and I guess could be considered legendary. It's such cool pokemon. A bug that has the ability for cool fire attacks as well. Definitely one of my favorite pokemon of all time as well.

    My least favorite pokemon of the list would have to be yanmega. I think he can be cheap in competitive battling because of his ability, and just don't like him overall. His aesthetics are pretty cool however.

    My first vote went to Yanmega! I've always been an enormous fan of Yanma and when gen 4 introduced an evolution for it, I was so happy. Yanmega is both well designed and super fun to use. It's such a diverse and powerful Pokemon to use. I also voted for Heracross as it's just a badass powerful Pokemon to use.

      I never realised I like so many bug-types o.O

      I voted for so many and I'm glad to see others who think Beedrill>Butterfly.

        Volcarona! :D

        It has served me very well in competitive play, so naturally I just had to support it.

        I can edit the poll and add your vote for Volcarona as well ;)

          I knew it would be a close battle between Scizor, Heracross and Volcarona. I actually voted for all three of these. :D I'm not surprised no-one likes Wormadam, Mothim or Kricketune so far; pretty poor ideas in my opinion.

          I'm not the biggest fan of bug types, even mentioned them as my least favorite type, but I do like some. I voted for :

          Sycther/Scizor: Both have really cool designs, Scizor's being my favorite. Mega Scizor is even cooler as well, I love the bigger and more sharper pincers it gets. Plus it's ability ,Technician, is very useful even in normal battles. It's gained Steel typing makes it's only weakness Fire making it more powerful than Scyther.

          Heracross: Yet another powerful Bug type Pokemon. As most know during gen I, Psychic types. One of the few types that could defeat it was Bug, but most Bug Pokemon were too weak to take on Pokemon such as Alakazam. The only that could take it one was Scyther. Heracross was a lifesaver cause it has much more Attack than Scyther and moves like Megahorn which make it a powerhouse. Plus now with a Mega Evolution, it becomes even more powerful.

          Kricketune:Cause it's cry is awesome. Enough said.

          Volcarona: I didn't care for Volcarona much until I started using it more in White version after I beat the game. Then I realized how awesome it is. It's high Speed, Sp. Atk and Sp. Def give it some of the best stats and with moves like Quiver Dance , Solarbeam, and Fiery Dance, it can dominate a battle. Plus it's design is really gorgeous.


          Also noticed something when looking at the poll options:

          Spoiler:

          Oh how I love you guys. PG mods are awesome , just saying.

            Scatterbug is just lovely. How could you just not like this thing! It's final evolution is a beauty; it's stats are better then previous Gen starter bugs, and it is simply gorgeous! >_<

            Also, Larvesta was one of those really cool Bug Types. Seriously, a Fire/Bug-Type is amazing, also mentioning that it's evolution is the coolest looking thing ever. The only negative thing is that it evolves at such a high level... :<

              I didn't realize I liked so many bugs. I decided to choose four for this poll, though.

              Venonat/Venomoth - For some reason, I like them. They're among the first pokémon I raised from an egg with IVs in mind.

              Shuckle - So fun! It performed amazingly in my first Black 2 Favorites challenge. Always great to see Iris's hydreigon do like 10 damage per hit.

              Kricketot/DELELELEWOOOOOPKricketune - Such a memorable and fun cry! Now that I think about it, probably my most favorite cry of all. :D I like kricketot's as well.

              Scatterbug/Spewpa/Vivillon - Mainly vivillon, for its different colors gimmick. I remember being pleasantly surprised and confused when mine was orange. I like all three for their pixel design too.

              Hmmm, I noticed that the three that are ahead in the poll seem to be the most competitively viable...

                Wasn't much of a Bug-type fan until Gen 5. That said, I vote for:
                Galvantula, Leavanny and Volcarona without a doubt, and maybe Heracross as well.
                These Bug-types can hold their own in battle fairly well, compared to the other Bugs.

                Sadly, Bug-types have been further stomped on because it does half-effective damage to the new Fairy type in Gen 6, adding to its somewhat weak offense...(as well as the fact that there's only one new Bug-type family in XY)

                They should be ashamed of themselves. Butterfree's clearly the best Bug Pokemon. I swear that-

                Oh, I didn't see you guys there. Well, another week of voting is complete in the Favorite Pokemon Tournament, and we've ended up with another tie! I'm sure it's been bugging you all as to who the winner would be, so I won't waste your time any longer. After the tie-break, the Pokemon that you selected as your favorite Bug type...

                Spoiler:






                We've got just one more type left to vote on in this tournament, and that's the recently introduced Fairy type! It should be interesting to see how popular the poll will be, and more importantly, who your favorite Fairy type is! If everything goes well, the poll should be up sometime tomorrow. Hope to see you all there!

                EDIT: Just an update from Brendino HQ- the Fairy type poll is going to be postponed for a few days, probably until Wednesday/Thursday. A blog regarding future rounds of voting and your guys' input should be going up right around the same time as well. Thanks for your patience!
