Grubbin

Grubbin is a Bug type Pokémon introduced in Generation 7. It is known as the Larva Pokémon.

Grubbin relies on its sturdy jaw as a weapon in battle and as a tool for burrowing through the earth. Grubbin loves electricity, which is why it can be found near power plants and substations. By wrapping tree branches in the sticky threads that it spews from its mouth, Grubbin can swing around like an actor on suspension wires!

Grubbin evolves into Charjabug.
