0 votes

This is... MY BUG MONOTYPE TEAM!!! Of course it may have flaws, but also good things. I have been tweaking this for the last 2 days now!! Please enjoy!
HERE WE GO!!!!!!!!

Sokka (Heracross) @ Expert Belt
enter image description here
Trait: Moxie
EVs: 252 Atk / 4 Def / 252 Spe
Adamant Nature
-Brick Break
-Stone Edge
-Megahorn
-Swords Dance

SUBSTITUTE! Moxie Heracross is dangerous, so it needs a place on my team. Swords Dance powers up Attack even further, making Megahorn, Stone Edge and Brick Break even more powerful.

Zappy (Galvantula) @ Choice Specs
enter image description here
Trait: Compoundeyes
EVs: 252 SpA / 4 SpD / 252 Spe
Timid Nature
-Hidden Power [Ice]
-Bug Buzz
-Thunder
-Giga Drain

I quite like Galvantula because its moves are pretty great. HP Ground is coverage, Bug Buzz is STAB and Giga Drain is healing and a bit of coverage too. Now last we have Thunder, which usually isn't picked over Thunderbolt because of accuracy, but Compoundeyes boosts accuracy!!!

Ninja (Ninjask) @ Leftovers
enter image description here
Trait: Speed Boost
EVs: 248 HP / 224 Def / 36 Spe
Impish Nature
-Protect
-Substitute
-Swords Dance
-Baton Pass

Do I have to explain this set to you?! Everyone knows it.

Volca (Volcarona) @ Life Orb
enter image description here
Trait: Swarm
EVs: 252 SpA / 4 SpD / 252 Spe
Modest Nature
-Fiery Dance
-Bug Buzz
-Giga Drain
-Quiver Dance

Another common set, this time on Volcarona. Quiver Dance is a must-have, as it boosts all the other moves it has.

Scissor (Scizor) @ Choice Band
enter image description here
Trait: Technician
EVs: 252 Atk / 4 SpD / 252 Spe
Jolly Nature
-Bullet Punch
-Pursuit
-Superpower
-Bug Bite

You might think that these moves are much too weak, but look at the ability: Technician. It boosts almost all of Scizors moves, so it can turn a low-powered move into a dangerous attack. I also have Pursuit here, because often when Scizor appears, they wanna run away.

Shroom (Parasect) @ Leftovers
enter image description here
Trait: Dry Skin
EVs: 252 HP / 172 Def / 84 SpD
Jolly Nature
-X-Scissor
-Spore
-Leech Seed
-Giga Drain

Heal King! Leftovers heal. Dry Skin heals. Leech Seed heals. Giga Drain heals. Spore puts them to sleep so you can have free heals from Leech Seed and Dry Skin.

Thank you, and goodnight!

This isn't an in-game team. Also, please use the comment button.
Ledian and Parasect really isn't recommendable. They basically cannot take any hit and can't dish out any pain in return. Spore is nice and all, but Para is to slow to properly use it and even with dual screens, Ledi is to frail to set them up. Heracross is definily more viable, being able to hit Rock and Steel types for super effective damage. Other viable Bug could be Armaldo (for Rapid Spin), Accelgor (Speedy), or Forretress (for and Rapid Spin and Stealth Rock). Overall, all of these are more viable than Ledian.
For Scizor, Steel Gem is not a very good option. Choice Band outclasses it, boosting every one of its moves. Move should be: U-Turn, Bullet Punch, Pursuit,  and Superpower.

HP Ice  > Ground on Galvy.

HP Ice  > Ground on Galvy.
Adamant>Jolly on Scizor. It's a slow, bulky physical attacker rather than a fast one.
