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 appears in Pokémon Gold, Silver, Crystal, HeartGold, and SoulSilver as the Gym Leader of the Azalea Gym. He is the second Gym Leader to be challenged in each of the games, although he cannot be fought until Team Rocket has been driven out of the Slowpoke Well.

Because of his research on Bug Pokémon, Bugsy's knowledge makes him an authority on them. He even discovered the move Fury Cutter, which is the signature move on his Scyther. This research has led to his given title, "The Walking Bug Pokémon Encyclopedia". He claims to never lose when it comes to Bug Pokémon, but—once defeated by the player—will admit his research isn't yet finished. Upon defeat he will hand out the Hive Badge, and a Template:Type2 Technical Machine: TM49 (Fury Cutter) in Gold, Silver, and Crystal, and TM89 (U-turn) in HeartGold and SoulSilver.

Like all other Johto and Kanto Gym Leaders, Bugsy will leave his Gym from time to time. Every Thursday, Bugsy travels to Viridian Forest where he will hand out his PokéGear phone number to fellow travelers around midday. From here he will progress to the Fighting Dojo and, on Thursday afternoons, accept a rematch with a stronger team.

Bugsy also has a room in the Johto Gym Leader Castle in Pokémon Stadium 2. This is the only time he will use Pokémon not of the Bug-type.

Quotes

"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 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.

Trivia

  • Bugsy is the only Gym Leader to use any Pokémon in battle that cannot learn any TMs or HMs.
  • In the anime, Bugsy's Metapod is the only Metapod to be shown using Tackle (or indeed, any move other than Harden).
    • This can also apply to the games, as all wild Metapod and Kakuna (as well as trainer's Metapod and Kakuna) only had Harden as the only move available to them.
  • Similarly to Saturn and Will, his Pokémon are the opposite gender of himself despite having a 50-50 gender ratio.
  • Bugsy is the only Johto gym leader that does not have an elemental type advantage on the next Gym Leader. (Falkner trains Template:Type2 Pokémon, which are strong against Bug-type Pokémon. Meanwhile, Whitney's Template:Type2 Pokémon are immune to Template:Type2 moves of Morty.)
  • Bugsy is the only Gym Leader whose signature Pokémon is sent out on the first turn, but this due to the fact that his Scyther now carries U-Turn.
