Why is Pollen Puff a bug type move?

Hello this is my first thread here.

Almost all the moves types have some logic behind it. For example elctric attacks use eletricity of course and grass type moves are created after plant parts. But the move Pollen Puff is a bug type move introduced in Generation 6 and I wonder why it is an insect attack but not a grass type move since pollen is a plant part. It is was Honey Puff or Honey Bomb it would make more sense for a buf type move since only bees can make honey.
