why do bugs resist fighting? i mean, they’re fragile af and powerful fists should crush them. i just noticed this when my butterfree singlehandedly effed the saffron dojo up, quadresist and all.
Not sure, but I think it’s probably something similar to the logic of Bug being strong against Dark – in Japanese popular culture, insect-themed heroes are very common, so it makes perfect sense for Bug-types to be strong against the “evil” type. In the same way, Fighting and Bug are both “heroic” types, but in very different ways and with different fighting styles, so they’re not very good at attacking each other. But that’s mostly a guess.
