From Bulbapedia, the community-driven Pokémon encyclopedia.
Bugsy (Japanese: ツクシ Tsukushi) is the Gym Leader of Azalea Town's Gym, known officially as the Azalea Gym. He hands out the Hive Badge to Trainers which defeat him. He specializes in Template:Type2 Pokémon.
In the games
Bugsy's title is "The Walking Bug Pokémon Encyclopedia".
Because of his research on bug Pokémon, Bugsy's knowledge makes him an authority on them. He claims to never lose when it comes to bug Pokémon, but admits his research isn't finished upon a loss.
Although still young, Bugsy discovered the move Fury Cutter, which gets stronger as a battle goes on for longer. In addition to the Hive Badge, Bugsy gives out TM49 (Fury Cutter).
Trainers in his Gym: Twins Amy & May, Bug Catcher Al, Bug Catcher Benny, Bug Catcher Josh.

"I'm Bugsy! I never lose when it comes to bug Pokémon. My research is going to make me the authority on bug Pokémon! Let me demonstrate what I've learned from my studies."
"Whoa, amazing! You're an expert on Pokémon! My research isn't complete yet. Ok, you win. Take this Badge."
In the anime
Bugsy's only anime appearance was in the episode Gettin' the Bugs Out.
Bugsy trains in a large, greenhouse-like Gym filled with trees and bugs. He has a affinity for Bug-type Pokémon.
His Scyther can use Swords Dance to deflect Template:Type2 attacks. However, Ash figured out it was vulnerable from above, and Cyndaquil was able to knock it out, winning Ash the Hive Badge.
