Iron Bundle (Japanese: テツノツツミ Tetsunotsutsumi) is a dual-type Ice/Water Paradox Pokémon introduced in Generation IX.

While not known to evolve into or from any other Pokémon, it is said to be a descendant of Delibird from the distant future[1] or a version of it from a different timeline[2].

Biology

Iron Bundle is a red Pokémon resembling a robotic bird. Its face is covered in white plating with two three-pointed crests above its blue eyes. Black markings surround its circular eyes, and it has a light yellow beak and feet. There is a single blue spot on its stomach. Its feet have two digits each. A metallic ring is visible around its neck (which hides a wire allowing it to extend its head over long distances), and its "bag" is attached to its body by a black and blue cable. When running, it uses it's feet as if it was skiing.

There are only two reported sightings of Iron Bundle. According to an article from an October issue of Occulture magazine, Iron Bundle was described in the Violet Book as a being that resembled Delibird possessing a spherical apparatus from which it would fire huge blasts of ice to propel itself through snowy lands. An unproven theory suggests it is the product of a long-gone civilization, as supported by ancient writings that describe the design and usage of machines resembling the Iron Bundle. When it falls asleep, it turns itself off, causing the blue energy on the spot on its belly and "bag" to turn black.

According to AI Turo, Iron Bundle is a future Pokémon related to Delibird. However, according to a Turo brought to the Crystal Pool by Terapagos, Iron Bundle is a counterpart of Delibird from another timeline. Its true origin is unknown. Iron Bundle were brought to the depths of Area Zero by a time machine built by Professor Turo ten years ago.

Trivia

  • Iron Bundle ties with Barraskewda for the highest base Speed stat of all Water-type Pokémon.
  • Iron Bundle has the longest Japanese Pokémon name in romaji, with 15 letters.
    • This name is longer than the character limit of Pokémon nicknames in the Western releases of the games, which is 12 characters.

Origin

Iron Bundle is based on Delibird. Its extendable head may be based on the jack-in-the-box or similar toys. The spherical device it carries around may be inspired by snow globes or snow blowers, and its feet resemble water skis.

Iron Bundle's typing might be a reference to the Pokémon Gold and Silver Spaceworld '97 demo, where ギフト Gifuto, the prototype of Delibird, is a Water/Ice-type Pokémon.

Name origin

Iron Bundle is literally iron bundle.

Tetsunotsutsumi can be taken literally as 鉄の包み tetsu no tsutsumi (iron bundle).
