Bug Catcher is a type of trainer class that is encountered throughout the original series of Pokémon games. Debuting in the Generation I games, they are usually depicted as young boys with straw hats who usually carry a net of some sort. They are usually among the first type of trainers that the player encounters, often having particularly weak pokémon and giving out very low amounts of money when they are subsequently defeated. In the Sinnoh region they appear later than usual in the game, after the first Gym Leader is defeated and they do not appear in the Unova region.

  • It is assumed they are in some way connected to the Bug Maniacs, as these trainers appear to be a more advanced group of trainers in terms of age and Pokémon strength.
