Talk:Bug Catcher (Trainer class)

Just wondering... is it smart to use kanji for the Japanese? Because in the games, everything is hiragana. I know it's not a big deal, but just to keep with the standards, maybe we should also provide furigana? -greengiant

Er. Any Japanese-speakers able to help me out here? I don't know enough to answer that one... evkl 19:51, 17 Apr 2005 (UTC)

I was trying to figure that out myself after looking at the Bodybuilder article. It didn't make any sense that the person who found out the Japanese name wouldn't have known its pronunciation, since the games don't even use any kanji except for yen. Ketsuban 00:00, 5 May 2005 (UTC)

Veering off subject

I really dislike the pictures thrown down the side like that. It's hard to see them. Can't we put them in a table or something?

>Sounds good to me. I would've done it if I had known how. It's alright on the pages that have one image, but for others a table would be better. - Zeta

Ooo, that looks way more presentable now. I'll do it to the rest. - Ferret 06:33, 5 May 2005 (UTC)


"Bug Catchers are usually extremely easy to beat in the games" dosent any one else think this line is pure opinion of the person who wrote it? It may be harder or easyer depending on the pokemon and a thousnad other factors Maril and Co. 23:56, 4 December 2008 (UTC)

Seriously...that one guy with the level 50 Kricketune or whatever...yeah, that line is pretty objective. I'll change it so it's accurate. Lucentas 00:19, 5 December 2008 (UTC)


"The first Bug Catchers the player battles from both Kanto in the remakes and Hoenn are both named Rick" The FireRed and LeafGreen thing doesn't say anything about anyone called Rick--I'm Pokelova(Talk) 06:30, 10 April 2009 (UTC)

Because it's incomplete. I do have Trainer data but it's too boring and tiring to put it here... --Maxim 07:13, 10 April 2009 (UTC)
Wow, thanks for helping, Maxim. — THE TROM — 07:16, 10 April 2009 (UTC)

FrLg Trainer List

Just thought that I should point out that the column headers here are all messed up. For example, under the heading 'Pokemon,' it lists the cash prizes for defeating them. Alakazam17 21:31, 1 January 2010 (UTC)

Adding trivia

In the Spanish version of Pokémon Crystal the Bugcatcher in Route 35 is named "Ángel1" which is weird, because I've never seen a trainer with numbers in their name. Should I add that? --EBnDr (Talk page ♪) 12:11, 30 June 2010 (UTC)

Article Incomplete

The reason says that this article needs the Generation I Bug Catcher trainers. So it's basically asking for a table to be done with all the Bug Catcher's that are fought in Pokemon Red, Blue and Yellow? Galm 21:58, 19 June 2011 (UTC)

Gen I Sugimori Artwork

This picture was taken from a page of ポケモンひけるかな? (Can You Play Pokémon?), a CD that came with a book containing music scores for the music from the game, which I didn't find an article about on Bulbapedia. Here it is for reference: English and covers, Info in Japanese, Some more info. This also brings to light Lance's Gen I Sugimori art, which isn't posted on Lance's article. Unfortunately, I couldn't find a better picture (Damn you, Blue. XD). KurowaSan 05:26, 22 February 2012 (UTC)

Lunchbox, yes or no?

In the bug catcher's description, it seems like we are uncertain of wether his box is a lunchbox or a box to keep his bugs/Pokémon. Looking at the artwork, I think we can surely say that it's his Pokémon container. MannedTooth (talk) 16:11, 22 January 2016 (UTC)
