Best Bug Pokemon
As Gym Defenders, This type often struggle because of their typically low Defense Stats and weaknesses to Fire, Flying, and Rock, all of which are commonly used as Gym Attackers. Even their resistances to Ground and Fighting, the two types that are most common for players in certain areas, are of little use since many Pokémon of both types can learn Rock moves.
Dual-type Bug/Flying and Bug/Poison Pokémon like Venomoth have a strong double resistance to Fighting, which can make up for their low Defense. They also have a double resistance to common Grass moves and can greatly pressure Pokémon of that type. The Best Bug type Pokemon are perhaps most effective when paired with Steel Type like Scizor, as those two types cover each other against everything but Fire.

Gym Attacker (Prestigers)
In strictly Gym Prestiging terms, This type is one of the worst offensive types. Statistically, these Pokemon are the weakest among the types as they have the lowest average base stat total among all Pokémon and among fully evolved Pokémon. Although they are super effective against Psychic, Dark, and Grass types, Bug types are unable to deal a lot of damage to many other types.
However, lacking this type may be in stats, they are by no means ineffectual.
