Pokémon Sun and Moon are launching this Friday, and we at Gamnesia wanted to celebrate—that's why, for the eighteen days leading up to the games' launch, we've been revealing our team's Top Ten Pokémon of each of the eighteen Types! We're continuing that effort today with the creepy, crawly Bug-Types, and our team has thought long and hard to determine which ten creatures from this group we adore the most.

So then, make the jump to find our Top Ten Bug-Type Pokémon!

It's time for another weekly installment of Gamnesia's Game Clash! Every weekend, we pit two (or more) games against each other, and the winner is decided by your votes. We've been doing a month of Pokémon battles in preparation for the launch of Pokémon Sun and Moon, and Generation III beat out Generation IV with 55% of the vote in last week's poll.

The final Pokémon Game Clash takes us to the regions of Unova and Kalos. Pokémon Black and White left the past behind to focus on a new batch of Pokémon, then bucked tradition by leading into sequel games instead of a third version. X and Y introduced new mechanics like Mega Evolution and brought the series to Nintendo 3DS. Which generation is better? Hit the jump to cast your vote and join the debate!

It's time for another installment of Gamnesia's Game Clash! Every week, we pit two (or more) games against each other, and the winner is decided by your votes. Last week we continued with our month of Pokémon match-ups by pitting the first generation against the second generation, and Johto's adventures won with a whopping 79.36% of the vote.

For this week's match-up, we head to the regions of Hoenn and Sinnoh. Pokémon Ruby, Sapphire, and Emerald introduced many prominent game features, such as Pokémon natures and special abilities, and starred two competing villain teams for a more elaborate story. Pokémon Diamond, Pearl, and Platinum made further changes to the game's formula, including categorizing moves as physical or special based on an individual basis, and starred Cyrus and Team Galactic on a quest to create a new world. Which generation is superior? You decide with your votes!

Pokémon Sun and Moon are less than two weeks away, and we at Gamnesia wanted to celebrate—that's why, for the eighteen days leading up to the games' launch, we'll be revealing our team's Top Ten Pokémon of each of the eighteen Types! While there aren't many primarily Flying-Type Pokémon in the series (only three creatures have that distinction, if you can believe it), there are plenty of Normal/Flying-Types that we passed by during our Normal-Type rankings. That means there's plenty of aerial creatures ready to populate our list, and we thought long and hard to select our favorite ten of them.
