Are you scared of bugs? Don’t worry, these cute crawlies are far from frightening. They’re more interested in worming their way right into your heart. Here are our picks for the top ten most adorable bug-type Pokemon.

1. Combee

Elemental Type: Bug/Flying

Cute level: 6/10

Evolves from: N/A

Evolves into: Females evolve into Vespiquen

The emoji-faced Combee is hard not to love with a single bee having three adorable faces in each of its hexagons. Even better, the bees can be as sweet as the honeycomb they look like. In the first episode that Combee were introduced, they helped Ash and his friends find the Enchanted Honey.

2. Caterpie

Elemental Type: Bug

Cute level: 7/10

Evolves from: N/A

Evolves into: Metapod

This little caterpillar is very hungry indeed, eating hundreds of leaves a day. It has big black and yellow ringed eyes, and a little, wriggly green body. Caterpie is easy to catch and evolve to a Butterfree, making it a great starter Pokemon. It was even the first Pokemon Ash caught in the wild!

3. Butterfree

Elemental Type: Flying/Dragon

Cute level: 8/10

Evolves from: Metapod

Evolves into: N/A

Caterpie’s final evolution is the equally cute Butterfree. It has an adorably chubby body and beautiful wings. Ash also evolved his Caterpie into a Butterfree, leading to the touching moment when Ash decides to release his own Butterfree to be with its mate.

4. Ledyba

Elemental Type: Bug/Flying 

Cute level: 6/10

Evolves from: N/A

Evolves into: Ledian

Ladybugs are one of the cutest bugs in real life, so logically, the ladybug-inspired Ledyba has to be one of the cutest bug Pokemon! Ledyba are very social creatures, getting sad and shy when left alone. They also play a role in pollinating the plants of the Pokemon world, making them very important for the environment!

5. Joltik

Elemental Type: Electric/Bug

Cute level: 6/10

Evolves from: N/A

Evolves into: Spewpa

Before Lucas the Spider took over the internet, there was Joltik, another big-eyed, fuzzy spider-oid. It is one of the smallest of all Pokemon, with a height of just 1 centimeter. While it's small enough to fit in your pocket, its electric attacks pack a big punch! Arguably, it is one of the cutest electric type Pokemon as well. Its evolved form, Galvantula, is also one of the more powerful bug types there is.

6. Scatterbug

Elemental Type: Bug

Cute level: 7/10

Evolves from: N/A

Evolves into: Spewpa

Scatterbug’s single bucktooth, perpetually dismayed expression and small size make it look like a little lost child, and as a larval Pokemon, it technically is one. Its little legs, round black body, and oversized head only add to its cuteness. Who wouldn’t want to adopt this little guy?

7. Snom

Elemental Type: Bug/Ice 

Cute level: 7/10

Evolves from: N/A

Evolves into: Frosmoth

Another larval Pokemon, Snom is a snowy blob supported by four stubby legs and covered in a translucent shell of ice. When it’s not sleeping or eating, it’s looking for food. Snom depends on friendship to level up, so make sure to spend plenty of time feeding it!

8. Swadloon

Elemental Type: Bug/Grass

Cute level: 8/10

Evolves from: N/A

Evolves into: Sewaddle

Swadloon looks like a grumpy toddler wrapped in a blanket. This “blanket” is actually a cloak made of leaves, which it uses to keep warm. Despite its grumpy face, Swadloon is a friendly Pokemon. It’s so friendly, in fact, that it needs high friendship to level up. It levels up into Sewaddle, then Leavanny, which are equally adorable in design.

9. Cutiefly

Elemental Type: Bug/Fairy

Cute level: 9/10

Evolves from: N/A

Evolves into: Ribombee

Cutiefly has the word cute right in its name! Its appearance lives up to expectations, with an ovular body, disproportionately big eyes, and a pair of tiny wings. It is one of the smallest of all the Pokemon and the lightest of all Bug-type Pokemon. The Cutiefly can detect the aura of living things, and so tends to gather around people with strong emotions.

10. Ribombee

Elemental Type: Bug/Fairy

Cute level: 10/10

Evolves from: Cutiefly

Evolves into: N/A

Ribombee has fairy wings… need we say more? It evolves from the Cutiefly at level 25. Its face is very expressive for a bug-type, with a small smile and white hairs over its eyes that look like eyelashes. It even has a brown “scarf” around its neck, furthering its humanoid appearance. As a dual bug and fairy type, its design certainly does a good job of blending both!
