Bug-type Pokémon are one of the seventeen 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, 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 Fighting-types.

Bug-types are strong against Grass, Dark, and Psychic Pokémon but are weak to Fire, Flying, and Rock-types.
