Bewear (Japanese: キテルグマ Kiteruguma) is a recurring wild Pokémon in the anime's Sun & Moon series. It appears to have appointed itself as Team Rocket's caretaker during their stay in the Alola region.



Bewear rescuing Team Rocket

Ash and Pikachu first met Bewear in Alola to New Adventure! after they got lost in a forest chasing after a Grubbin. Ash and Pikachu greeted it with a smile, but panicked and ran off upon seeing Bewear destroying trees nearby in joy. Bewear eventually lost the two after Tapu Koko distracted it and it sighed sadly.

Bewear met Jessie, James, Meowth, and Wobbuffet in Loading the Dex!, taking Jessie and James away from battle and to its den in the forest, while Meowth, Wobbuffet and Mimikyu followed them. In First Catch in Alola, Ketchum-Style!, after Jessie caught Mimikyu at the den, Bewear proceeded to give them some honey before heading off. A tribe of wild Pikipek and Trumbeak soon came and stole all of the Berries in Bewear's den, so Team Rocket agreed to not only catch the Pokémon, but return the Berries to Bewear out of gratitude for giving Team Rocket food and shelter. When Bewear picked up Team Rocket to take them back to the den, they had only retrieved the Berries.

Bewear has since been seen dragging Team Rocket away from a battle before they could be sent blasting off, or even succeed in their plans.

In The Sun, the Scare, the Secret Lair!, Team Rocket decided to use Bewear's den as their base of operations whilst in Alola. They completed their new base in A Seasoned Search!.

Personality and characteristics

Bewear is a friendly and very hospitable Pokémon. After bringing Team Rocket into its den, it began sharing the food it gathered with them and their Pokémon, and allowed them to stay. Bewear is very protective of Team Rocket, but its rescues can be unreliable. In The Sun, the Scare, the Secret Lair!, Bewear even "rescued" the trio just before they were going to defeat Ash and his Pokémon in a fair fight. It even went all the way to Kanto to rescue Team Rocket as seen in Alola, Kanto!. Bewear's hospitality towards Team Rocket was also shown in Young Kiawe Had a Farm!, where it was happy to lie and cuddle with them on a patch of grass. Its hospitality was so well taken by Team Rocket that Jessie even tried to share some malasadas with it, an act that she would almost never do.

Bewear likes to keep its den tidy, hefting large boulders above its head to clear them out from the area in front of its entrance. It also has enormous physical strength and agility, as shown by its ninja-like movements when rescuing Team Rocket; and in Getting to Know You!, when, among being presented a gift of malasadas, it almost strangled Jessie with joy.

Bewear is shown as being comforting of Team Rocket in One Journey Ends, Another Begins... where it was shown softly hugging Meowth, to console him, due to the fact that he was worried about Litten. It also showed its softer side in Mallow and the Forest Teacher!, by choosing to trade some bags of Honey that it had with a wild Oranguru's Pinap Juice, despite the fact that Team Rocket was in the middle of battling against Mallow, her Steenee, and the Oranguru.

Bewear has been depicted as being strong. This was best demonstrated in SM061, when it encountered a Buzzwole; it was able to hold its own, only to stop when it realized that Team Rocket were nearby and subsequently grabbed them before fleeing. It was also seen to perform seemingly impossible feats like jumping across rooftops in A Shocking Grocery Run!, flying through the air by using its legs as a propeller in Big Sky, Small Fry!, and running across the surface of the ocean from Kanto to Alola for at least 3 days in When Regions Collide!.
