Charjabug (Japanese: デンヂムシ Denjimushi) is a dual-type Bug/Electric Pokémon introduced in Generation VII.

It evolves from Grubbin starting at level 20 and evolves into Vikavolt when leveled up in a special magnetic field.

Biology

Charjabug is a small, cuboid Pokémon resembling an insect. Its body consists of three square segments with two brown stubs on each side. The last two sections have a thin, ring-like marking on each side. Its face has square blue eyes, which sometimes have sweeping green lights inside. Two short, yellow spikes extend from the front square: one on each side of its rectangular mouth. The mouth itself is gray and has two jaws that close sideways, shaped like a lightning bolt when open.

Charjabug creates and stores electricity in its body by digesting food. This energy is stored in an electric sac. The electricity it stores could run a household for a whole day, and can be shared with other Pokémon. This Pokémon stays immobile as it prepares for its evolution, and is often half-buried in the earth.[1]

Major appearances

Sophocles's Charjabug

Charjabug made its anime debut in SM026, where it was caught by Sophocles. Ash was looking for a farewell present for Sophocles due to believing that the latter was moving away, and decided to go look for a Charjabug at Rotom Pokédex's suggestion. With the help of Pikachu, Rockruff and Litten, he was able to dig it up and trap it in a cage. Ash later let it out after showing up to Sophocles' farewell party and let him catch it, after Sophocles battled and defeated it with his Togedemaru.

Trivia

  • Charjabug, along with its evolutionary relatives, were designed by Hitoshi Ariga.

Origin

Charjabug appears to be based on a cocooned bug and a battery. It may also be based on the denkimushi, a caterpillar in Japan that, when touched, can give a sting that is said to feel like an electric shock. Based on its cry, it may also be inspired by an accordion.

Name origin

Charjabug may be a combination of charge (as in to charge a battery) or charger and bug.

Denjimushi may be a combination of 電池 denchi (battery) and 地虫 jimushi (grub).
