Meta Battle Subway PokeBase - Pokemon Q&A

Are there any non bug type Pokemon that are still technically insect-like?

Some examples are: Drapion, Flygon, Tyranitar, Dusknoir...
This seems really weird, but I'm doing research for a fanfic I'm writing...

There is actually a Pokedex attribute organizing system that includes in one of its categories Pokemon with an insectoid body style.

The non-Bug types listed under this are:

-Krabby
-Kingler
-Kabuto
-Corsola
-Lotad
-Trapinch
-Corphish
-Crawdaunt
-Shellos
-Gastrodon
-Drapion
-Cressalia

I also think Vibrava and Flygon look a lot like insects.

Granted, I don't see it in Corsola and Cressalia (maybe it's because Cressalia kinda has a butterfly look going for it?) Lotad doesn't look the part, but further research shows it to be likely based off an insect. Krabby, Kingler, Corphish, and Crawdaunt look like crabs/lobsters of course, but I guess you can say crabs and lobsters are pretty similar looking to insects.

There is Gligar, Trapinch and a couple others.
If you want to know more try this link.
Some aren't in the group so check the water groups.

witch water?
I think she meant the Water 1,2 and 3.
Yeah, your right.
I was asking witch one: 1, 2, OR 3
...Which.....

And there were only two non-bug types, which I already knew in your link
