Like most Pokemon trainers, Priam began his journey at a young age, leaving his home town of Viridian City to realise his dreams. During his travels, he developed an interest in Bug-type Pokémon. He admired their variety, their uniqueness. In particular he was awed by their movements: flying, crawling, fighting, all as one. Many individuals participating in a single, vast swarm, each Pokémon affecting those around it as they attack in unison. Priam came to believe that the flap of a Beautifly’s wings on one side of the field can turn the tide on the other.
Using his team of Bug types, trained for high speed and all-out attacking, he eventually ascended the ranks to become a Gym Leader. Only those who can endure Priam’s insects are presented with the Swarm Badge for theirefforts.
