I’m sorry, Bug. I want to defend you, I really do, but here you are languishing right at the bottom of the Pokémon type barrel. This is totally subjective, of course, and you’re free to disagree, but here’s my reasoning.
Nobody can deny that Bug totally got the shaft in the
early days of Pokémon. There was precious little STAB to speak of; Beedrill using Twineedle was about the most that the Bug type could muster in generation one. Since then, most powerful moves and ‘mon have buffed Bug in a big way, but the sad fact remains: Generally, good Bug Pokémon are good despite their Bug typing, rather than as a result of it. I don’t know about you, but I’m really not convinced by that as a USP.
