Bug Buzz is necessary on RP so that Genesect has a strong STAB move to pose an actual threat offensively. Ice Beam and Thunderbolt (or Thunder on rain) are usually best in the last slot because of the excellent coverage they provide; a few Bug Buzzes will put Ferrothorn in its place, and BoltBeam hits all other Steel-types. The only Steel-types winning are Thunder Wave Ferrothorn and rain Jirachi. With Bug Buzz, Thunderbolt (or Thunder), and Ice Beam, Genesect has all it needs to succeed. Flamethrower doesn't do enough IMO to deserve a place on RP Genesect.
