Current location With Bailey
This Pokémon has not evolved.

Bailey's Ledyba is the first Pokémon that Bailey Ketchum caught in the Kanto region.


Kanto Arc

Ledyba makes his appearance in Kanto 2: First Catches right after Aeryn catches her first Pokémon, Shinx.

In Kanto 3: A Rocky Battle, Ledyba is Bailey's first Pokémon to go up against Forrest's Rhyperior, being her only other option along with her Ralts. Ledyba ended up being defeated by Rhyperior, but learned Brick Break in the process and tired the Drill Pokémon enough for Ralts to take it out with it's new move Confusion.

Personality and characteristics

Ledyba is a very happy Pokémon always flying around with a smile. He does love a good battle and gives it his all. He hates to disappoint Bailey, as seen when he lost his battle against Rhyperior, but was quickly given confidence when Bailey said he did an excellent job against a Pokémon with a type advantage.
