If anyone here recalls Paras's first anime appearance, they'll know how iffy he is as a fighter. "Poor Paras doesn't have any confidence in it's own ability," they said. Well, there are better Bug Pokemon, there are better Grass Pokemon, but moves like Spore, Giga Drain and X-scissor are always useful.
