Bewear is a black and pink Pokémon resembling a bear. Its legs and the front of its body are black, while its head, back, and tail are pink. Across the top of its head is a white band with two tufts of fur on each end. This white marking gives it the appearance of wearing a headband with decorative bear ears. It has a short, white muzzle with a triangular black nose. There are pink paw pads on its front paw, and white digital pads on its hind. It has a short tail with dark pink rings.
While Bewear may appear friendly, it is actually a very dangerous Pokémon — even considered to be the most dangerous Pokémon in Alola. It must never be approached carelessly, even if it is merely swinging its arms around in a friendly fashion. It shows affection with a fond embrace, but its hugs have incredible force. Trainers of this Pokémon must teach it how to restrain itself when showing affection. As seen in the anime, Bewear is capable of doing incredible feats such as jumping very high and moving very fast, even being able to run on water.

Bewear seems to be based off a bear and the red panda. It also has some similarities to a mascot costume or a stuffed animal. Its concept may also be based on the bearhug, a professional wrestling submission, which could also explain its Fighting-type.
