Scatterbug is a black larval Pokémon with a relatively large head. Its head is bisected by a line that runs from the forehead to the mouth. It has large beige eyes with square black pupils, a single pointed tooth that pokes out of its mouth, and three white hairs on top of its head. Scatterbug has a three-segmented body with a pair of nubby, beige legs on each segment. A white ruff of fur encircles its neck, and there is a large beige spot on its rear. If threatened by a bird Pokémon, Scatterbug can spew a paralytic black powder. The powder covering its body regulates its temperature, allowing it to adapt to any climate.
Scatterbug and its evolved forms are the only Generation VI Pokémon in the BugEgg Group.
Scatterbug seems to be based on a caterpillar, specifically, the larvae of carpet moths, which are known for their tendency of eating through fabric and making cocoons from it, or the silk moth, whose larvae produce large amounts of silk.
Scatterbug is a combination of scatter and bug, and perhaps litterbug.
Kofukimushi may be a combination of コフキコガネ kofukikogane (Japanese cockchafer), 粉 ko (powder), 吹き fuki (blow), and 虫 mushi (bug).
