As in real life, as in Pokémon: There are a lot of fucking bugs. I hate bugs. I hate them all. Well, except ladybugs. Ladybugs are okay. And spiders aren't so bad.

Spider-squirrels, though... Spider-squirrels are the worst.

But there honestly aren't that many Bug-type Pokémon I dislike. So this was a hard choice. Ultimately I had to go with:

Parasect! One of the worst Pokémon in the game!

Seriously. He has no Speed so he always goes last. He's weak to six different types, including two 4x weakness. And if he has the Dry Skin ability, he's 5x weak to Fire. No other Pokémon has a 5x weakness. But, still. He's cool. Parasect is based on the Cordyceps genus of fungi, all of which are parasitic. There's an interesting article here on Parasect, but, basically, Parasect is a zombie. A zombie Pokémon! How is that not cool? I mean, really. C'mon.

Totally cool.
