Trubbish is a Pokémon that looks like a big, dark green waste bag with a knot at the top that serves as ears. Trubbish has huge triangular teeth that resemble shattered glass and oval-shaped eyes. Its arms resemble rubbish leaking from little rips in the bag, with pink and blue things sprouting from them. It has dark green stubby feet.

This Pokémon was generated as a result of a chemical reaction involving residential and industrial garbage. Trunk emits unpleasant, burp-like fumes that, if breathed, may leave a person bedridden for a week. When young Pokémon and children inhale this gas, they may die. Trubbish’s ear-like tufts rise straight up when frightened, elevate when pleased, and descend when sad, as seen in the anime. Furthermore, it is mentioned in the same episode that once Trubbish likes a human, it will stop emitting bad scents. It favors filthy environments, such as rubbish dumps, where it may locate trash and other rotting food, such as moldy apples. Trubbish is a regular foe of Alolan Grimer, and Alolan Muk preys on it. The vapors created by Trubbish are consumed by Galarian Weezing.
