Bug Bite is an offensive Bug-type move.

It can be taught by the Physical Move Tutor of Tsukinami Village for four Red Shards. In 1.03, it could be taught by the Ultimate Move Tutor in Tsukinami Village, at a cost of 4 shards of each color.


Bug Bite inflicts damage. If the target is holding a Berry, the user will eat the Berry and gain its effect. Bug Bite will not eat the target's Berry if it hits its substitute.

The effect of a Jaboca Berry will activate before the Berry can be stolen. Berries like Liechi Berry or Sitrus Berry will be eaten by the attacker, regardless of them meeting their consumption requirement upon taking damage from Bug Bite. Bug Bite shares this effect with Pluck.
