    I think it's because bugs can adapt more better to poison than plants. Bugs generally have shorter generations than plants, and can evolve pretty quickly as to develop immunity to pesticides.

    A lot of birds tear up branches and leaves to make nests. Woodpeckers make holes in trees.

    I don't get why grass has so many weaknesses. I used to like grass types, they had cool moves that steal energy or give status problems. But then I learned about all those type disadvantages...

    Because Grass types are often based on plants. Plants have many venerabilities, an explanation on their weaknesses:
    Fire: they can be burned
    Ice: Plants are killed by being frozen
    Bug: Bugs eat plants
    Poison: poisons kill them
    Flying: Birds eat plants

    Plants generally are venerable to a lot of things in nature.

    I think it's because of this Japanese myth about this boogeyman who's afraid of bugs...
    Personally I thought of it as Dracula (dark) scared of a little inchworm (bug), now that I think about it, it doesn't make sense 8P
    However, I never got how water is not super effective against steel ( because it rusts) and how dark/psychic combination types like Spiritomb and Sableye are resistant to everything. There are no types that are super effective against them >:(

    Girl that ain't even close to it. Emo people are not all dark and stuff.
    So my question still lingers.

    Because Dark is known as the "evil" type in Japan, and a lot of Dark-type moves rely on dirty tricks and cheap shots (Sucker Punch, Fake Tears, Taunt, etc.)

    Not only is there the corny "honorable warriors always defeat underhanded villains" thing, any well-trained martial artist should be able to recognize and counter the cheap shots made by a less-trained but pragmatic fighter.

    And look at the Musketeer Pokemon- Swords of Justice- their Justified ability raising their Attack after hit with a Dark move
