Effect

Trivia

  • It is currently the first and only Bug-type that is sound-based.
  • Beedrill is only Generation I Bug-type that possesses wings, yet cannot learn Bug Buzz in Generation IV. Ironically, the wingless Venonat learns it as an Egg Move.
  • It is one of two Bug-type moves that start with the word "Bug", the other one being Bug Bite.
