Charjabug is a tiny, cuboid Pokémon that looks like an insect. Its body is made up of three square parts. On either side, the final two parts contain a narrow, ring-like marking and a stubby brown leg. Each eye is hidden behind a blue screen and is only visible when it glows. From the front square, two small yellow spikes protrude, one on each side of its rectangular mouth. When open, the mouth is gray and features two jaws that shut sideways, like a lightning bolt.

Charjabugs are sometimes seen half-buried in mud or leaves, feasting on humus. It has an electric sac in its body that it utilizes to store the power created by digestion. Its stored energy can power a home for a whole day and may be shared with other Pokémon.  It can emit sound waves to converse with adjacent Grubbin, as depicted in the anime. Unless in an airborne combat, Vikavolt is known to utilize Charjabug as a battery to strengthen its Electric-type abilities.
