    Default Bug / Flying Showdown!

    From the 1st Generation, Bug/Flying was a staple combination, where at least one Pokemon has this combination. It's to note that this combination itself is cursed, however, because of the dreaded Rock weakness and lack of offensive prowess, but one cannot ignore the ultre Fighting resistance. Generation 5, however, took a break from this common typing, which is considered a breath of fresh air (and the fact that no Japanese names will be listed, which is good). Anyway, without further ado, in the insect cage, we have...

    Butterfree!Scyther!Ledyba & Ledian!
    Yanma & Yanmega!Beautifly!Masquerain!
    Ninjask!Mothim!Combee & Vespiquen!

    That's quite a sizable cast, but these are the main Pokemon with this typing, so then, which would you choose? To make things easier, you can consider your choices with some of these factors (or all if you can!):
    • Design of Pokemon
    • Appearance
    • Competitive (Video Games) viability
    • Competitive (TCG) viability
    • Performance in the anime
    • Performance in the manga
    • Preference


    Personally, I choose Mothim, Combee & Vespiquen, Masquerain, Ninjask, Butterfree an Ledyba & Ledian. Mothim is chosen because of pity purposes (I have a feeling that he will be least picked in the long run). Butterfree is a bit awesome in competitive viability and the fast that Ash had a Butterfree. Ninjask for that great Speed, Ledian (Ledyba would be part of it) for having an oddball choice of learning punches (even Mach Punch!), Masquerain for the realistic bug evolution, and Vespiquen for being very defensive.

    Now it's your turn to answer and vote!

    Thanks for reading.

    Butterfree and Beautifly are my favorite early bird bugs, Ledian is quirky and unique, which instantly makes it awesome. Yanmega kicks some serious ass and Scyther(and Scizor) is my fourth all time favorite Pokemon.

    Yanmega is the best battler of Bug/Flying, in my opinion.

    I prefer Yanmega, because of its movepool and stats. I also like Vespiquen though.

    Ugh, Bug/Flying. My least favorite combination of Types, and one they keep on abusing, screwing up so many Pokémon in the process because it sucks so horribly bad. Looking at all of its members together also lets you see how bland they are... but oh well. I'm biased because my least favorite Pokémon of all time is here, it completely ruined Pokémon with great potential (Masquerain), and it just flat out sucks and I'm tired of it. So glad 5th Gen finally ignored it for once. :/

    Out of these Pokémon, the only one I ever had the thought of using would be Vespiquen. She's fairly decent and has a great design when compared with the rest of them. Beautiful and good on the eyes.
    lol I got bored.

    Scyther = bad-ass
    Beautifly is cute, that's all
    But! My favorite flying bug is... Yanmega! Simply the best :B

    Butterfree
    Ledian
    Masquerain
    Ninjask
    Mothim

    Masquerain is my absolute favourite out of those though.

    Butterfree because it is a cool qd sweeper(i have used it so don't comment), scyther because it has decent stats and technician quick attack and yanmega because specs yanmega with tinted lenses can sweep teams.

    Oops, didn't notice this was multiple choice. Winstein, would I be able to change my vote from Yanma & Yanmega to both Yanma/Yanmega and Scyther?

    Yanmega is just plain awesome, Yanma's probably my favourite looking one of them, and Scyther has also long been a favourite of mine.

    Starters of choice.

    Yanmega is obviously the best of the group because of Speed Boost. It's too bad that the move needed for Yanma to evolve is considered useless in competitive value.

    I voted for Scyther, Yanma/Yanmega, and Combee/Vespiquen. They are all awesome. They all are kickass in battle, and they all have great designs. Personally, when picking a pokemon, that's what I look at.
