Cubchoo (Japanese: クマシュン Kumasyun) is an Ice-type Pokémon introduced in Generation V.

It evolves into Beartic starting at level 37.

Contents

Biology

Cubchoo is a bipedal, ursine Pokémon with a light blue head and neck. It has a slightly pointed head with large round ears, shiny, dark, oval eyes, and a darker blue muzzle. Cubchoo has a shiny dark nose, from which a considerable amount of light blue nasal mucus — the source of its attacks — droops. The lower part of its body is white. It has rounded forepaws, digit-less feet with black paw pads, and a small round tail.

Cubchoo's nose is constantly running. It inhales the mucus and uses it in its attacks. Cubchoo also uses it mucus to attack anyone it dislikes. If it is in bad health, the mucus becomes watery, which weakens its Ice-type techniques.

Trivia

Origin

Cubchoo is based on a polar bear cub. The mucus it possesses is probably inspired by the fact that cold weather often results in a runny nose.

Name origin

Cubchoo is a combination of cub and ah-choo (sound of a sneeze).

Kumasyun may be a combination of くま kuma (bear) and くしゅん kushun (onomatopoeia of a sneeze).
