Bug

The Bug-type is one of the fifteen elemental types introduced in the first generation of Pokémon. It is an early-game Pokémon type as it teaches younger players about the evolution mechanic that most Pokémon possess as they evolve quite early during the leveling-up process. However, to circumvent early-game power scaling, most Bug-type Pokémon are quite weak, making most obsolete after the early-game.

It is to note that before Generation 4, all damaging Bug-type moves were categorized into physical attacks, while afterward being split up into the special and status categories too – depending on the move.
