Bugs scare me silly IRL. D;

Mega Pinsir looks fierce, almost robotic, like Scizor. I'm happy that it got some recognition. Now, if only Beedrill or Ariados could get a Mega form. They're some of my favorites, but they're very lacking on the battlefield.

Scolipede is like a huge teddy bear. Definitely one of the cuter Bugs. Leavanny is great too.

Mega Beedrill is something I can definitely get behind. Beedrill may be my favorite Bug-type, actually.

    Mega Venomoth? Mega Yanma? i reckon they sound pretty radical! :D plus since mega yanma is so ignored, it'd do it good! :D

    Plus i haven't seen a Venomoth since Pokemon Stadium N64. xD

    Mega Venomoth and Mega Yanmega (redundant name much?) would definitely be interesting. Venomoth could use a little bit of a boost if you ask me.

    Mega Beedrill would definitely be awesome. I wonder how it'd look, though... maybe it could have longer drills and wider wings? I don't know, haha. Statistically though, I would really like it to have more Attack. Beedrill already has a bunch of physical moves in its arsenal, and having a better Attack stat would make it easier for Beedrill to take advantage of them. It'd be sweet if it got a boost in Speed, too. Aside from Mega Beedrill, it would be pretty cool if they'd given us a Venomoth mega-evolution as well. :]

      Mega Venomoth! ^^ Until the other day, I kinda forgot it existed, haha. xD

      But that Mega Pinsir is Mega Butt Ugly! ;-; It's disgusting, fowl, looks like poop. xD

        Which Bug-type is best to use offensively?

        Yanmega for Special, Heracross for Physical. They are both really strong in those respects.

        Yanmega and Volcarona on the special based end, and Heracross and Scizor on the physical end. Bug-types were kinda underwhelming early in the series so it was nice to see later generations produce some stronger Bug-types, and even some with some unique type combinations.

          Ooooh, I heard Heracross is a god in that area, haha.

          Whenever I deal with a Heracross I have to be extra careful, he is also so OP in battles. :X

            I find that Scizor is quite the powerhouse when it comes to Bug-types. Despite its 4x Fire weakness, it's pretty agile, fast, powerful and hard to take down with other moves. Heracross being the combatant that he is and with a good array of moves, is pretty tough to use and to take down as well. Volcarona is special to use when powering her up with Quiver Dance and then using a Bug move like Silver Wind or a Fire move like Fiery Dance to take the opponent(s) out relatively fast. It's worked for me on several occasions.

            Volcarona for good special, speed, and bulk. Access to quiver dance, morning sun, gigadrain do not hurt at all.

            Physically, Scizor is pretty good. Maximize its Attack EVs and give it Choice Band, and it could knock down almost any of its foes with one hit. Specially, though, it would have to be Volcarona. After one use of Quiver Dance, it would be able to sweep the entire team of your opponent single-handedly. d:

            Echoing those who said Volcarona. It's beastly with Quiver Dance setups and can really pack a punch.

            Defensively, I'd say Forretress. Though I forget he's bug/steel and not rock/steel or something, haha. He is great for setting up hazards like Spikes and Stealth Rock but also gets Rapid Spin among other Things. Whoot!

            I'm going to agree with most people here and say Volcarona for special attacking. It just has access to too many great moves, like quiver dance, fiery dance, hurricane, giga drain and bug buzz, and has the stats to back it up. Others for special attacking are Galvantula (with sticky web + thunder + compound eyes) and Vivillion surprisingly, since it has access to Sleep Powder, Hurricane, Quiver Dance and Bug Buzz, and has Compound eyes to pull it off.
            Oh and of course Yanmega, because speed boost works amazingly on it. On the Physical side, Scizor (and I'm assuming mega-scizor) is pretty OP, especially in rain and with bullet punch. Heracross is pretty good too since it has guts and megahorn. And from what I've been hearing, Scolipede with Speed Boost is really good as well.

              Welcome to the club. Awww, a Paras. Such a cute little guy. I love using Volcarona. Mine has good stats and holds Leftovers, while building up its power with Quiver Dance and taking out foes with Fiery Dance, Bug Buzz and Hurricane. I have won many battles with that same combo, even have taken out whole teams with just Volcarona. I have used Galvantula a few times but can never get a good enough move set for him other than Electroweb, Spider Web, Thunderbolt and Bug Bite. Rarely have used Vivillon or Yanmega but have used Scolipede, Scizor and Heracross in battle. They're pretty tough.

                Wow, that is such an amazing artwork, haha. Not sure if I could ever draw something like that. Anyway, to boost activity, I'll start off a new topic for ya! If you were to fuse two bug-types together, which would you choose? How'd you expect the outcome to look?

                  Butterfree and Beautifly came to mind, and so did Venomoth and Dustox. I don't know what the first two would look like, but Venomoth and Dustox would look pretty creepy. If I was good at art and fusion, I'd mix them up.

                  Ooh, definitely. If Venomoth and Dustox were mixed into one, they'd certainly look pretty weird and intimidating. I mean, they're both scary enough as they are, but when fused together… @__@ Anyway, I'd probably splice-up Scizor and Beedrill. It'd keep the same structure and body color of former, get those drill-like arms from latter. If you ask me, it'd look pretty cool!

                    That artwork! :O

                    I wish I could do that kinda stuff, haha, but I'm just your simple manga pencil-on-paper girl. xD

                    If i could merge two Pokemon together it'd be...

                    Leavanny and...

                    I'll have to get back to you on that one, haha.

                    I started a new file on Pokemon X and regrettably, i haven't got a single bug Pokemon on my team. ;-; It's heartbreaking, I know... but non really appeal to me as a team companion. :X

                      If you find any more cool Bug-type artwork, post it here. I think some artwork would help spruce up the club a bit.

                      Here's one:

                      Spoiler:


                      It was drawn by Leashe over at deviantART. Quite an amazing work, isn't it? :] Love the way how Scyther's diving into the ground.

                        The cute/elegant grassy aesthetic and color palette of leavanny with the body shape and design of Volcarona would be my top fusion.

                        Well, I couldn't help but whip something together. I kinda love it. Hmm, I will call it Leavarona.

                        +

                          It was drawn by Leashe over at deviantART. Quite an amazing work, isn't it? :] Love the way how Scyther's diving into the ground.
                          That is awesome artwork. Who's he battling? Scyther looks like a lizard in this picture. One of my favorite Bug-types.

                          Well, I couldn't help but whip something together. I kinda love it. Hmm, I will call it Leavarona.

                          Oh my goodness, how did you do that? That fusion looks awesome.


                          By the way, a new topic is up on the original post for everyone to answer.
