Beware of Butterfree

Butterfree@ Focus Sash
Ability- Compoundeyes
Nature- Timid
EV's- 252 Sp.Att, 252 Speed, 4 HP

  • Sleep Powder
  • Quiver Dance
  • Bug Buzz
  • Energy Ball

With Compoundeyes and Sleep Powder, Sleep Powder will not miss(unless
opponent uses Fly, Dive, or Dig). Once the opponent is asleep start
boosting your stats with Quiver Dance. Once you think you boosted your stats enough start attacking and hopefully you will get a sweep. This is if you need a Special Attacker in your team.

Sting like a bee

Beedrill@Focus Sash
Ability- Swarm
Nature- Jolly
EV's- 252 Att, 252 Speed, 4 HP

  • Sword Dance
  • Acrobatics
  • X-Scissor
  • Poison Jab

With Jolly nature you could be faster than some Pokemon, but if you
are faster go with Sword Dance and then your opponent will attack and because of your sucky Defenses it will go down to it's Focus Sash. Then go with Acrobatics because with
Sword Dance, S.T.A.B, and because you already used your item (Focus
Sash) Acrobatics will do some damage.

I would go for Butterfree because it could sweep some teams and , but that's my opinion choose which works better for you.

shoulda been "float like a butterfree, stng like a beedrill"
i think acrobatics isn't worth with a item
lol did u read?
focus sash is used cos he got hit
what about Mega Beedril? aside from Volcarona, Mega Beedril is the only Bug type worth having
both are worse
