Burgh is the Gym Leader of the Castelia City Gym of the Unova region as well as an accomplished artist. His gym is the third to be challenged by the playercharacter. He will award the player character the Insect Badge if defeated.

Appearance

Burgh is a tall, thin young man, with bright green eyes and chin length, thick honey brown, wavy hair. Burgh wears a cider green V neck shirt, with long sleeves, as well as a white undershirt. Burgh also wears a red scarf around his neck, a brown belt with a butterfly-design buckle, red pants with dark green and black vertical stripes, dark socks and flat pointy shoes matching his pants' color. Burgh also makes some poses, showing the world how a great artist he is.

Personality

A young artist in Castelia, Burgh attains a rather eccentric and artsy personality. He was also a somewhat of a trickster, as in Pokémon HUGtto Precure he'd pull pranks on Homare and Rara.

Etymology

The name Burgh comes from "bug" and possibly the suffix "-burg" (city), as he lives in one of the biggest cities in Unova

His Japanese name, Āti, could come from "arthropod" (the phylum of animals that insects, arachnids, myriapods, and several other animals commonly considered "bugs" are in) and possibly "art". Following the plant-based naming of most characters, it may also incorporate "artichoke".

Biography

Black and White

Burgh appears in Nacrene City to visit Lenora when he first appears to the player. The player finds that Team Plasma has stolen an item from the museum, and Burgh, along with the player, will follow Team Plasma to get it back. After the player defeats the Team Plasma grunt, they will be congratulated by Burgh and will be allowed to battle Burgh's gym in Castelia City.

Black 2 and White 2

He chases after Team Plasma grunts at the sewers, and then after watching both the player and Hugh beating the grunts, he calls them to his Gym. If Memory Link is used, it is shown in a flashback that Burgh visits Lenora as he is intrigued about bones due to Bug Pokémon having exoskeleton instead. Lenora mentions how she took a liking to bones as during her childhood, as her father used to bring many bones, which sparked her curiosity and interest. Eventually Clay barges in with a fossil for Lenora to evaluate. Unfortunately for Clay who expected to sell it at a high price, the fossil was quite common, however with a rather unusual soil. This brings newfound hope for Clay to keep digging on his tunnel. Burgh questions Clay about what he thinks on bones. Clay replies that bones are what's left when one passes away. The three are seen satisfied with the many opinions on the subject.
