Ledian is a Bug & Flying Pokémon which evolves from Ledyba. It is vulnerable to Rock, Flying, Fire, Electric and Ice moves. Ledian's strongest moveset is Bug Bite & Bug Buzz and it has a Max CP of 1,346.
"It is said that in lands with clean air, where the stars fill the sky, there live Ledian in countless numbers. There is a good reason for this—the Pokémon uses the light of the stars as its energy."
Bug Bite is superior to Struggle Bug, and is much easier to work with due to its faster animation.
Aerial Ace is not an impressive move, but costs the least amount of energy among the available options, and at least gets STAB. Silver Wind ties for the same energy cost, but its coverage is a bit redundant and its stats are poor. Dynamic Punch is recommended for its strong and valuable coverage against the meta. Bug Buzz hits the hardest and demands the most energy for this power, but its coverage is redundant and more niche.
Ledian requires Candy XL to reach the CP cap of Great League, making this Pokemon rather expensive in the league that's meant to be the most beginner-friendly in terms of resources and accessibility. With a low ATK stat, Ledian sports surprisingly good bulk for this league, being comparable to Deoxys Defense Forme. Unfortunately Bug typing isn't very valuable in the open format, and Ledian will struggle to challenge most of the meta outside of its niche typing advantages. Dynamic Punch is a theoretically useful tool for its strong and wide coverage, but Ledian simply does not have enough ATK stats to deal significant damage. It takes slightly more than two Dynamic Punches to KO Bastiodon, a Pokemon that is already doubly weak to it.
Ledian barely has enough stats for Great League, don't even think about Ultra League.
What's better, to have Ledian bug the opponent or cheer for your losing team?
