Best moves for Vespiquen in Pokémon Legends: Arceus

What are the best moves for the Beehive Pokémon?

Vespiquen is a Flying and Bug-type Pokémon that evolves from Combee (at level 21, but only if female). This Pokémon is easy to overlook, but it has access to a great move pool and decent stats. It can make a great addition to most teams, especially in the early game.

Vespiquen's Flying and Bug-typing means that most of its powerful moves are also Bug and Flying-type as they benefit from S.T.A.B. (Same Type Attack Bonus). This means that Pokémon using moves that match their typing will do increased damage in battle with those moves.
