pre-evolutions are actually pretty awesome in Little Cup http://www.smogon.com/dp/pokemon/ledyba

Both have great and fun niches while their evos are almost useless even in NU especially Ledian (doesn't mean you can't use them). Also opposed to the other beginner bugs which are complete garbage in little cup like Weedle, Wurmple, and Kricketot.

Joltik isn't really a beginner bug but it does nicely in LC.

Yeah Joltik isn't a beginner, Galvantula has a nice niche for himself too, I've seen him in OU. Stuff like clear bad Pokemon like Kricketot and Kricketune.

Also I just noticed Gen 5 had some pretty awesome beginning bugs in Scoliopede and Leavanny (leavannys not that good but better than Dustox and Ledian) Sewaddle does pretty awesome in LC too.

Gen V bugs are generally good if not powerful.

2010 was a good year for Bug types.

I don't care what you say, Generation II sucks.
That's just my opinion, no matter how true it may be.

I always joke that it's because of having a Bug legendary (that is "natural" and not Multitype'd).

Gen 5 bugs evolve too late.

I remember those bug catchers in gen 3 keep tellig me bugs are good, they evolve early. And many are fully evolved at at only 10+. Joltik evolves at what, 35? I say they nerf it and make him evolve at level 10.

This is a sig. Yup.

Pretty much everything in Gen V evolves late. I actually like it.

It's hard to even call Sewaddle and Venipede "early game" Bugs, since in BW you can't even catch them until after the second gym. I realize they're available earlier in BW2, but those games also give you a Riolu before the first gym, so...
