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

It evolves from Cubchoo starting at level 37.

Biology

Beartic is an ursine, quadrupedal Pokémon capable of standing on its hind legs. It has bluish-white fur with a shaggy tuft at its rear. 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.

Beartic is capable of freezing its own breath, and will create pathways across the water using this technique. Should it get tired while swimming, Beartic will also use its breath to freeze the water it is swimming in so that it can lay down and rest. Its ice breath can create fangs and claws of ice, the former being harder than steel. It inhabits northern areas where it catches prey in the cold waters.

Trivia

Origin

Beartic is based on a polar bear. Its flat, cone-like head and icy beard also gives it a resemblance to snow-capped mountains.

Name origin

Beartic is a combination of bear, or possibly beard, and arctic. Notably, arctic itself derives from ἄρκτος arktos, Ancient Greek for bear.

Tunbear may be a combination of tundra, 氷柱 tsurara (icicle), and bear.
