    OMG. ;~; That is so awesome! :X

    I still haven't decided on what need's merging, haha.

    Is it just me or is 6th seriously in need of more Bug-types? :

    Yeah, generation six is seriously lacking bug-types; Scatterbug, Spewpa, and Vivillon are the only ones, if I'm not mistaken. To be fair, though, not many Pokémon were introduced this gen in general. This time around, it seems as if they were focusing more on mega-evolution than anything. xD"

    Instead of giving us more Bug-types in Gen VI, they just gave us one with a bunch of different forms to collect. They still showed Scizor, Heracross, and Pinsir some love with their Mega Evos though (Pinsir being the best if you ask me)

    Which Bug-type is the best to use defensively?
    I would say Volcarona. Thanks to its Flame Body ability, opponents would get burnt while trying to land hits, which would halve their Attack and enable it to withstand more hits. Plus, with Roost, it could recover its health whenever it wishes to. :p Aside from that, Drapion is pretty good, too.

      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.
      Thank you!

      Lots of experience spriting...along with several years of less than desirable spriting. Though, I am still looking to improve!

      Which bug type best defensive?

      As for the best defensive, I love Vespiquen, I wish she had a better ability like Filter to go along with her terrible typing and excellent defensive stats. Though, she does well in-game, non-competitive, in this regard. I love using Defense Order and Heal Order setup to set a wall that can endure plenty of super-effective moves for the next pokemon. Sometimes she can deflect a few rock attacks; though sometimes not

      Bug/Flying is terrible for Defense. Might I ask how she deflects Rock-types with a 4x weakness?

        For the tier it's in, NU, it's actually not that bad. If you have Reflect set up, it should be able to withstand a rock attack or two without any issue. It also has access to Defend Order; with that, you could increase both its defensive stats at once, which is pretty handy. It's able to learn Roost as well, and that's a plus. n_n"

          Bug/Dragon would be nice, like one of those Tremors mixed with a dragon. I can envision it but I can't draw it out on paper.

          I kind of imagine a dragon (Imagine Dragons?) with a stinger and other insect-like features. I'd have to brainstorm it out but I think I miiiight be able to come up with something pretty cool. Maybe over the weekend I'll think of something and post a description :O

          Given the Yanma line are apparently based on dragonflies, I think Yanmega should have been Bug/Dragon. But still, I'm hoping they can pull it off eventually, there could be some good design potential in there. As for weaknesses though it's still got quite a fair bit (Rock, Flying, Dragon, Fairy and Ice) but at least it will be one of those dual Bug typings that isn't Fire-weak.

            Which bug-type is the best to use defensively? I'd go with either Vespiqueen because of the defense order either Heracross or Pinsir because they can both tank a lot of hits.

              Question. Am I the only one upset with some of the mega's for our bug pokemon?

              I loath pinsir and heracross, but don't mind scizor's.
              Honestly, butterfree of all bugs deserved one the most

              Though, this would have been better,
              Spoiler:



              These are two perfect!!! Subtle, but innovative! (unlike some other megalution designs :/)
              Spoiler:


              Sorry if I sound like a hater. I loved this generation AND the idea of mega's, but I feel let down by several of the designs. (Most of the designs.)

              Really? I like Pinsir's, it's pretty friggin scary and awesome. Heracross's isn't great and Scizor's is ok but not that great either. I like the ones you posted, I really would like to see a Beedrill Mega Evo at some point.

                Welcome to the club. Awww, a Beautifly, I love her. I have only used Vespiquen once, so I don't know how good she is really, but I have used Heracross a lot and he is good defensively and offensively. My secret weapon when I have a Bug team.

                By the way, Dark Avenger, I love that Mega Beedrill, the stingers are more lethal than before.

Pinsir's no louch in defensive stats, either- but doesn't really have a movepool to back that up.

                    Welcome to the club. I like Pinsir, a good battler but nothing to defend himself with. I've used Forretress the most out of the others you've named. He is a fortress, literally. I give him a Rocky Helmet so that the opponent gets some damage from hitting him. I normally use Forretress to set up Stealth Rock, Spikes and Toxic Spikes. He ends up going down after this, but the other Pokemon on my team make up for his loss.

                      But his stats are horrible so far so I'll try and improve his moveset, haha.

                            Welcome to the club. I remember searching the route outside of National Park, the one after Goldenrod City, for a Yanma because they were so awesome. You have a good team, what moves do they have?

                            Welcome to the club. I like your team as well, especially that you have Shedinja on it. Shedinja is probably my favorite Bug-type at the moment, being almost invincible.

                              If you could retype any Bug-type, which one would it be and why?
                              Hm, probably Scizor. I'd retype it to fighting-steel, as it looks more like a fighter to me than a bug. :] I'd also change Yanmega's typing to dragon and flying.

                              I'd make Yanmega Bug/Dragon, Flying-type really isn't all that necessary for it if you ask me. I could definitely see Scizor being a Fighting-type, although its torso looks like that of a bug. Otherwise, the only other one I can think would be Venomoth to Psychic/Poison since clearly has strong psychic powers, but it's still very clearly a moth so there's not a great case for that.
