In the Pokemon world, many Trainers become particularly attuned to a specific Type. Maybe they exclusively use that Type of Pokemon, or maybe they find themselves particularly adept at fighting them. A Swarmlord, along with the other Elementalists, takes it to a whole new level. Instead of simply using that Type, they become them, gaining their skills and attributes from a bond closer than anything a Type Ace could manage. Bugs naturally flock to a Swarmlord due to their power as well as control over bugs as a whole. Through the use of pheromones a Swarmlord can command hordes of tiny insects to do their bidding, or even act as a controller of more powerful Pokemon when they've gained greater power. No matter how they choose to utilize their power, you'd be hard pressed to find a Trainer more adored by bugs.
