{{type|Bug}}-[[Types|type]] [[Pokémon (species)|Pokémon]] are one of the eighteen Pokémon elemental types. Bug-type Pokémon are generally arthropod-like Pokémon. Bug-type moves mostly use the Attack stat. However, some moves, such as Signal Beam, use the Special Attack stat. Bug-type attacks typically involve the use of the body parts of the bugs. Famous trainers that specialize in Bug-type Pokémon are [[Bugsy]], the gym leader in [[Azalea Town]] in [[Johto]], [[Burgh]], the gym leader in [[Castelia City]], [[Aaron (Elite Four)|Aaron]], the first of the [[Elite Four]] in the Pokémon League of Sinnoh, and [[Alder]], the Champion of the [[Unova]] Reigon. They commonly evolve at low levels, as early as lvl 7. Bug-types are resistant to {{type|Fighting}}-types.

Type Bug

The Bug type (むしタイプ Mushi taipu in Japanese) is one of the eighteen Pokémon elemental types.

Bug-type Pokémon are characterized by their fast growing, they don't take long to evolve. Bug-type Pokémon live mostly (not all of them) in forests, some of them are a little harder to find because they live atop the trees.

The known famous Bug-type trainers are: Bugsy, the Gym Leader of Azalea Town in Johto; Aaron, the first member of the Elite Four of the Sinnoh Pokémon League; Burgh, the Gym Leader of Castelia City in Unova; and Viola, the Gym Leader of Santalune City in Kalos.

From Generation V on, it is known that Bug-type Pokémon are preferred by artists, mostly because they have beautiful colors and have a stoic and cheerful character. It can be said that Bug-type Pokémon represent the beauty of nature.
