Depends on the rest of your team.
Based on stats, moves, etc. alone, I'd say that Vivillon is the best, simply because of its movepool. Powder is a great, although situational, signature move, and it puts the opponent on their feet, trying to predict what move you'll use. It also gets access to Quiver Dance, which boosts all of its important stats. Then its coverage is fairly strong, with access to Grass, Psychic, and Fairy moves, along with a relatively strong support viability, with moves such as Aromatherapy that could give it a possible role in utility.
If only if someone answered... oh and thanks  DA830
We can only give a good answer if you told us about the rest of the team.
Well, I'm talking like the Bug/Flying is the only one. Which one is generally better.
They are all part Flying-types, so they are weak to each other. As for which is better, I'd go with the same answer as DA830.

I would use Vivillion, because it can use sleep powder and quiver dance. Hurricane also makes a great edition to the movepool, along with bug buzz.

It depends what you need on your team, butterfree can set up many status conditions with sleep powder poison powder and stun spore, but those can be blocked by grass types/safety goggles/overcoat so I carry bug buzz
vivillon can sleep powder too, and either on the switch or during their sleep turns, can set up quiver dance and sweep with special moves
Beautifly..... Butterfree is just better, don't bother
Masquerain can do a role similar to Mega Manectric, in setting up intimidate to you turn out again, and also can carry other physical moves.
See what you need and work with it
