Bugsy (Japanese: ツクシ Tsukushi) is the Gym Leader of the Azalea Town Gym. Beating him earns the player the Hive Badge. He specializes in using Bug-type Pokémon. The player can challenge Bugsy only after Team Rocket is defeated in the Slowpoke Well.

Appearance

Bugsy is an androgynous-looking boy with purple hair and eyes. In the original Gen II games and anime he wore a green camper's outfit (green collared shirt with green shorts suspended by a belt, brown dress shoes and white ankle socks). In Gen IV this is modified to look more like a boy scout outfit (his shirt now has different shades of green, he wears a neckerchief, and he wears yellow-striped knee socks instead).
