I need one for the last spot on my team. I am debating between forretres (i already have a poison type though) and ledian. But I really want to know which bug.

Forretress is not a Poison type. It is a Bug/Steel type.

In terms of ingame use, Scyther/Scizor is probably the best Bug type you can get. Scyther has great Attack and Speed. Scizor has less Speed, but it has even better Attack, better defenses, and the great Bug/Steel typing. Technician is a great ability for them, giving them an incredibly powerful Wing Attack/Aerial Ace that can sweep through the foe.

Scyther (M) @ Expert Belt
Trait: Technician
EVs: 252 Atk / 4 SDef / 252 Spd
Adamant Nature (+Atk, -SAtk)
- Wing Attack/Aerial Ace
- False Swipe

- X-Scissor/Bug Bite

Scizor (F) @ Expert Belt
Trait: Swarm/Technician
EVs: 4 HP / 252 Atk / 252 Spd
Adamant Nature (+Atk, -SAtk)
- Iron Head/Bullet Punch
- X-Scissor/Bug Bite

In terms of competitive, Forretress or Scizor depending on what you need it for. Forretress is a better hazard setter and wall. Scizor is a far better sweeper.
