Bug-Type Pokémon – Weakness and Strength Chart

How can you counter these Pokémon?

There are several different typings in the Pokémon franchise. With so many variations, it can be difficult to remember the strengths and weaknesses of each one. This can make battling difficult at times, due to the vital importance that type strengths play when fighting another trainer. Bug-type Pokémon have always been decent in battle, and that is likely to stay true in the upcoming Pokémon Scarlet and Violet.
