Bug Maniac is a type of Trainer Class that is encountered throughout the games of Pokémon. They were introduced in Generation III and usually take the appearance of a young adult that is surrounded by bug cages at either side of them.

They are usually encountered in the middle of the game and tend to use higher, evolved forms of Bug Pokémon during their battles. They only appeared in the Hoenn region thus far.

It can be assumed that they are older and stronger Bug Catchers, as during battle, some will mention that they used to be a Bug Catcher in their younger years.
