Trivia

  • Bachuru is the smallest Pokémon.
  • No other Pokémon has the same type-combination as Bachuru and its evolution.
  • Bachuru and Denchura are the only Pokémon capable of having the Tension ability that do not have it as their hidden ability.

Origin

Its Pokedex entry states that it latches onto to larger Pokémon to drain the static electricity off them, so it may be based on a tick, though its size seems to imply it is based on a mite. Like its evolution, it is also based on a tarantula, most likely the Brachypelma smithi, or a jumping spider.

Name origin

May come from バグ (the English word bug), and チュウ chū, an alternate reading of 虫 mushi, meaning bug.
