Characteristics

Bug Pokémon are amongst the first Pokémon types a trainer can find in the wild. The type varies from strong to weak. Depending how said Pokémon is raised, they can provide annoyance with stat altering moves or hit hard with attacks such as Megahorn, Signal Beam and Silver Wind.

They are super effective against Psychic and Dark types, which are two types common in most teams. The Generation I games weren't very kind to this type, however, but many Pokémon of this type have improved over time.
