    We were joking about the grass moves. :/

    Also, cry #1 seems to be the popular choice here.

    Number one reason not to give this a grass attack: It would slaughter bulky waters. Grass + Ice works wonders for Abomasnow and Ludicolo, I don't see why it wouldn't here. While it could already take out Starmie and Slowbro with Bug attacks, energy ball is a silencer for Lapras, Walrein, and Milotic. Otherwise it doesn't affect much given TTar is weak to Bug and the other common rocks are part Ground, bar Aero which is weak to Ice. Regirock is the only Rock type this really puts a damper on, although Mamoswine won't like it either.

    I don't think any of those moves really have any viability on an ICE/BUG type really. I don't think it's feasible to have an ICE/BUG type using Ground/Fighting/Fire/Water/Electric/Rock moves. Why don't we stick with ICE and BUG type moves, hmm? We've already given it an immunity to Stealth Rock, why don't we beef it up with the best moves in the game? If there was no immunity to SR, the other moves might hold some balancing justification, bu with a SR immunity? Wanting a BIT too much.

    For the record, I voted Close Combat and Earthquake.

    I do like the cry, though. Maybe a little too buggish. Add some more "Ice-like" twinges too it, maybe?

    There are quite a few moves pokemon get that don't make sence. How does a fire monkey summon a "knot of grass"? How does Bronzong use Earthquake? It's a floating hunk of crud. The most it can do is fall to the ground. How goes Gyarados use Fire Blast? Or Blissey for that matter? Pokemon doesn't always have to make sense.

    And for the record, no pokemon ever has only moves relating to just its typing. That'd be ultimately stupid.

    The only one this bug would have a problem with is earthquake (if it "stomps", wouldn't its crystal bottom be shattered?) and Fire Blast (I have no idea where I bug/Ice would get fire from unless it was burnt itself).

    i don't believe you scratched that.
    it looks exactly like KOA's and he has years of experience under his belt.

    Dude I did the head and arms and I used KoA as a guide to do the bottom and the wings. And I did not add the lower parts. It is scratched but not fro my mind like KoA originally did.

    Judging solely by its looks, I say all of its special attacks except Earth Power should stay on. I don't see how something with no legs could use Close Combat though. Fire Blast sounds ridiculous.
