In Generation IV

The Bug-Catching Contest is a competition held every Tuesday, Thursday, and Saturday in Johto's National Park. The Bug-Catching Contest is introduced in Gold, Silver, and Crystal, and makes a return in Pokémon HeartGold and SoulSilver.

In the games

There is no entry fee for the Bug-Catching Contest. Anyone may enter once per day on the days which the contest is held.

To compete, Trainers must catch the single best Template:Type2 Pokémon they can find. To do this, trainers are given twenty Compé Balls and allowed use of a single Pokémon of their party. The rest of a Trainer's Pokémon and any items they may have remain with the contest officials until the competition is over.

Any Pokémon caught will be recorded in the Pokédex, but only one Pokémon can be kept to judge. The Pokémon that is judged may be kept after the competition.

In the anime

In The Bug Stops Here, Ash and Casey competed in the Bug-Catching Contest. During the competition, Casey caught a Weedle, and her Chikorita evolved into a Bayleef. Ash won the competition with a Beedrill, earning himself a Sun Stone. After the competition, he gave the Beedrill to Casey since she loves Pokémon with yellow and black stripes.
