    Past Bug Pokemon:

    -Ninjask

    *BUG POKEMON OF THE WEEK*[​IMG]
    Ninjask[​IMG]
    Tier: NU
    Smogon Recommended Set: Speed Boost @ Leftovers
    -Baton Pass
    -Protect
    -Substitute
    -Swords Dance / X-Scissor
    Nature: Impish
    EVs: 248 HP / 224 Def / 36 Spe

    Why we recognize this Pokemon: A few reasons we pay attention to this Pokemon competitively, is because of his ability to make a sweeper even more dangerous and even harder to get a revenge kill on. Ninjask is given the ability Speed Boost, which boosts Ninjask's speed by one stage every turn. This nice little ability gives Ninjask the power to bring in a slower but strong sweeper without it getting outsped by faster competition. With two turns of stalling, it can bring in a Scizor with around 400 Speed with proper investment. For the last moveslot, you can choose to time your attacks and either boost with a Swords Dance to bring in a sweeper, or you can use X-Scissor to keep your Ninjask from being complete Taunt fodder.

    What makes him different from other Bug Types?
    As we all know, all Pokemon are based off of either real things, or things in legends and mythology. Ninjask, just happens to be based off of a cicada. A male cicada has loud noisemakers called "tymbals" on the sides of the abdominal base. Its "singing" is not the stridulation (where one structure is rubbed against another) that characterizes many other familiar sound-producing insects, such as crickets. Rather, the tymbals are regions of the exoskeleton that form a complex membrane with thin, membranous portions and thickened ribs; contracting the internal tymbal muscles produces a clicking sound as the tymbals buckle inwards, and the relaxing of the muscles causes the tymbals to return to their original position, producing another click. The interior of the male abdomen is mostly hollow, which amplifies the sound. A cicada rapidly vibrates these membranes, and enlarged chambers derived from the tracheae make its body serve as a resonance chamber, further amplifying the sound. The cicada modulates the sound by positioning its abdomen toward or away from the substrate. Additionally, each species has its own distinctive song. Cicadas are native to many areas in Asia, but more specifically, in China and Japan.

    Username: BugPokemonMaster316
    Favorite Thing About Bug Types: I just really like their designs. I like bugs in real life, so that's also why. I also like them because they're often considered weak, but Bug-Types like Scizor and Volcarona can prove to be very strong in battle.

    You are all accepted! Welcome to the club guys! Userbars and buttons will be available soon ^_^
    For now, let's talk about bug types! My favorite, as many of you may already know, is Scizor.

    Also, I now have the Bug Type Pokemon of the week up and running ^_^

    Crustle[​IMG]
    Tier: RU
    Smogon Recommended Set: Sturdy @ Life Orb / White Herb
    -Shell Smash
    -X-Scissor
    -Stone Edge
    -Earthquake
    Nature: Amadant
    EVs: 252 Atk / 4 Def / 252 Spe

    Why we recognize this Pokemon: Crustle, unlike most Pokemon equipped with Shell Smash, comes equipped with an almost automatically guaranteed sweep: Sturdy. Sturdy allows Crustle to set up with Shell Smash next to flawlessly. Crustle also comes with a very good physical movepool, with Earthquake giving him great coverage against Steel, Fire, and Rock types. Stone Edge is a great STAB with a high crit. ratio and allows him to handle Flying types and other opposing threats at bay such as Gyrados and Volcarona. The only thing that is keeping Crustle cowering in the RU tier, is the amount of priority moves being used in the higher tiers, such as Bullet Punch Scizor. Other than that, Crustle is a great Pokemon, and can handle lots of situations on it's own.

    It is necessary, it let's me copy your name then paste it into the OP :p
    You are accepted! Yes you may claim Armaldo ^_^
     
  10. Ok that makes sense :p

    thankz!
     
  11. Yveltal96

    Yveltal96 A little more human

    No prob ^_^ your claim has been added into the OP.

    How about a topic?

    What type of bug moves do you want to see?
     
  12. i think a bug type move that Paralyziz (my slang spelling) them of fear like bees wasp's or hornets ^_^

    i also think a bug type recoil would be nice it is the only type that doesn't i beleive
     
  13. Yveltal96

    Yveltal96 A little more human

    Hmmm interesting. I used to always think that Megahorn caused recoil when I was little. Not entirely sure why though.
    I wonder what a move like that would entail as in what kind of part of the body would it use (horn, stinger, etc) and the force, etc etc.

    I personally want a stronger bug type move than can poison. Twin needle just won't cut it with me >.>
     
  14. yeah like a pin missle thing (not hitting 2-5 times) where poizoniz stinger strike you! :) that would be awesome

    Like poison missle (emphaziz on MISSLE) with a 100% chance of poison

    Yveltal96 A little more human

    Ooooo I know! There are some spiders bites, that the venom burns when it goes in. I want a bug type move that can inflict burn status, and (for the time being) it could be a sig move of a spider Pokemon and it could have a base defense stat spread of 80/80/130 and his attack spread could be 110/35/105. Thoughts on the design or typing though? I don't think he should be part fire though, maybe dark?
     
  16. dark/bug! sounds GREAT, maybe a ant pokemon can learn it too cause red ants cause poison, sting, and burn! ^_^

    Ok, now you are accepted <.<
    God dammit....

    Don't worry, he is, unfortunately, just my friend trolling >.>

    That would be really cool :p I really wish you could inflict multiple status conditions at the same time (confusion doesn't count) like in the TCG, I can guarantee many bugs would abuse that power
