Beartic (Japanese: ツンベアー Tsunbeaa) is an Ice-type Pokémon introduced in Generation V.

Biology

Physiology

Beartic is an ursine, quadrupedal polar bear-like Pokémon capable of standing on its hind legs. It has bluish white fur with a particularly fuzzy and plump underbelly and a shaggy tuft for a tail. Three spikes of ice hang from its lower jaw, forming a beard. Its face consists of a long snout, beady black eyes, and rounded ears. Its large forepaws have black claws and paw pads.

Behavior

Like Ursaring, Beartic is highly protective of its young, Cubchoo. When traveling they often give their offspring a ride.

Evolution

Beartic evolves from Cubchoo at Level 37.

Trivia

  • The drop of mucus coming from the nose of its pre-evolution has become frozen and longer, now Beartic's "beard".
  • Beartic is realistically sized; in reality, 8 feet is roughly the size of a polar bear standing on its hind legs.
  • Beartic's BMI (based on human calculations) is 38.7, compared to the polar bear's BMI (again based on human calculations) of 51.2. This is partly because Beartic is a lot lighter than its real-life counterpart.

Origin

Beartic is based on a polar bear.

Etymology

Beartic comes from of the words bear and Arctic, as it is based on a polar bear.

Its Japanese name, Tsunbeā, comes from ツンドラ (tsundora, tundra) and bear.
