Grubbin (Japanese: アゴジムシ Agojimushi) is a Bug-type Pokémon introduced in Generation VII.

It evolves into Charjabug starting at level 20, which evolves into Vikavolt when leveled up in a special magnetic field.

Biology

Grubbin is a small, insectoid Pokémon. It has a white body with three nubs on either side resembling simple legs. There are two yellow spots on its side. Its head is dominated by two large, yellow mandibles with reddish-orange tips. The rest of its head is brown and has a reddish-orange structure with a yellow rim on top. It has large, black eyes with white pupils.

Grubbin typically lives underground. It uses its jaw as a weapon, a tool for burrowing, and for extracting sap from trees. Additionally, it can create sticky threads, which it shoots from its mouth and uses to swing around as though on suspension wires. It loves electricity, and can be found near power plants.[1]
