    I thought this was an actual trainer, but it is just the trainer that can be a competitor in the Bug Catching Contest. You will know if he is competing if you see a blue NPC to the left of the fountain. If not, reset! I'm sure this guide works even if he is present: https://www.reddit.com/r/Pokemonguide/comments/7b05g2/how_to_win_the_bugcatching_contest/?utm_source=share&utm_medium=web2x&context=3

    Got it! Nick low-rolled Pinsir (worst Bug he could present) and I had a level 14 Scyther: https://bulbapedia.bulbagarden.net/wiki/Bug-Catching_Contest
    I was using a Noctowl with Hypnosis for all of these. Consider having Berries in your bag to give (hold) to remove Poison and Paralysis in battle. I went with Sharp Beak and it might've ruined some otherwise good runs to not have Berries on me.

    It took about 4 resets but I finally got it. Use a Pokemon with Sleep Powder / Hypnosis / Lovely Kiss and try to find a Level 14 Scyther / Pinsir. If you can catch it without dealing any damage you have the best chance possible of winning against Nick. On one of my resets I managed to beat Nick but I lost to another competitor lol

    The scores on the leaderboard are questionable

    I won with Pinsir with 363 points, Nick's Pinsir had 362 points
    angelfmf 10 Sep 2022 10:32
    Way easier than i expected. Won the first time i found nick with a lvl14 pinsir against his scyther with a 363 score. I had to reset only 3 times to find him*
    Ultros 15 Sep 2022 03:29
    So that's where my luck went. The lucky egg cheevo took forever, massive bad luck, then I find Nick the first time and immediately find a level 14 scyther that I catch in my fourth ball and win first try. Neat.

    man i hate achievements that rely heavily on RNG let alone triple RNG (get nick, find sycther/pinsir ,hopefully have a high enough score)
    gauxel 29 Dec 2022 13:19
    Got it with a Pinsir (361 points) vs Nick's Scyther.
    Velius 13 Jan 2023 14:42
    Probably one of the worst achievements on that set, despite me getting it lmao. William (rarely) and Barry can also kill your run.
    LeturLefr 18 Jul 2023 12:44
    yeah Barry is the hidden boss, he'll cockblock both of you and Nick out of nowhere.
    SeiferLK 25 Oct 2023 09:51
    I'm over 50 resets and I can't do this!
    AntipathyWorld 9 Dec 2023 06:28
    got it first try with a level 14 scyther and glare on my dunsparce.... insane luck
