Bug types occasionally feature on my team very early in-game, before being replaced. That’s because they’re easy to get early in the games. And while they don’t stay on my teams, I’m still really fond of some of them.
Gen 1 – Kanto – Butterfree
This is another one of my “I copied Ash’s team in gen 1” pokémon. And I think it’s the only bug pokémon I’ve used on my team for the whole game.
Gen 2 – Johto – Scizor
Scyther probably would’ve been my gen 1 pick if not for butterfree, so its evolution gets my pick for gen 2.
Gen 3 – Hoenn – Beautifly
I picked beautifly because it’s beautiful. And that’s all I have to say about it.
Gen 4 – Sinnoh – Combee
A honeycomb bee?!! It’s perfect! I mean, that’s such a cute, creative design. And it looks so happy – that smile is contagious.
Gen 5 – Unova – Joltik
They really did make a spider pokémon that looks adorable. I like the bug/electric typing too.
Gen 6 – Kalos – Vivillon
I loved trying to collect all the vivillon forms in gen 6 and I’m curious how it’s going to work in Pokémon Go. Will the regions match up with the regions they used for X/Y? Will they make it easier to get all the forms? I remember it being pretty tough to get some of the forms on the GTS. I believe I had the modern form vivillon (pictured), but my favorites were the marine and meadow forms.
Gen 7 – Alola – Ribombee
I’m noticing a lot of yellows in the bug pokémon I’ve chosen. And yellow’s my least favorite color, so it’s pretty impressive that I think it looks good on all these pokémon. Would I complain if they were blue or pink instead? No, but the yellow looks great, and I wouldn’t change it (those are extremely acceptable colors for shiny forms though).
Gen 8 – Galar – Dottler
Dottler was on my team for a bit before replacing it later on. It like that it has a ladybug design that doesn’t look too much like a ladybug.
What are your favorite bug type pokémon?
