Bugsnax Bugapedia: How to catch every Bugsnax

Bugsnax Bugapedia: Sugarpine Woods

This setting may look sweet, but it’s one of the trickiest areas in the game, as a lot of the creatures here can be fiendishly difficult to catch. It also houses the entrance to the game’s final area, although you won’t be able to access this initially.
