==={{series|Diamond & Pearl}}History===
In ''[[DP009|Setting the World on Its Buneary!]]'', Buneary was close by when [[Ash's Pikachu]] was almost run over by [[Officer Jenny]] while trying to get back [[Ash's hat]] from his ===={{APseries|Aipom}}.Diamond It& managed to rescue Pikachu and stayed near {{ashfr|the groupPearl}}'s campsite after that, but [[Brock's Croagunk]] noticed it was hiding in the bushes and it ran off. Both {{Ash}} and {{an|Dawn}} rushed to catch Buneary, but Dawn was determined to battle the Pokémon after failing to catch a {{p|Buneary}} in her [[DP002|previous]] [[DP004|attempts]] and quickly commanded {{TP|Dawn|Piplup}} to use {{m|Bubble Beam}}. However, Buneary was able to dodge Piplup's moves and {{status|confusion|confuse}} him with {{m|Dizzy Punch}} before using {{m|Bounce}} to [[Fainting|knock him out]].====
In ''[[DP009|Setting the World on Its Buneary!]]'', Buneary was close by when [[Ash's Pikachu]] was almost run over by [[Officer Jenny]] while trying to get back [[Ash's hat]] from his {{AP|Aipom}}. It managed to rescue Pikachu and stayed near {{ashfr|the group}}'s campsite after that, but [[Brock's Croagunk]] noticed it was hiding in the bushes and it ran off. Both {{Ash}} and {{an|Dawn}} rushed to catch Buneary, but Dawn was determined to battle the Pokémon after failing to catch a {{p|Buneary}} in her [[DP002|previous]] [[DP004|attempts]] to do so. She quickly commanded {{TP|Dawn|Piplup}} to use {{m|Bubble Beam}}. However, Buneary was able to dodge Piplup's moves and {{status|confusion|confuse}} him with {{m|Dizzy Punch}} before using {{m|Bounce}} to [[Fainting|knock him out]].
 
After that, it was Ash's turn to try to catch Buneary. He used his Pikachu to battle Buneary, but it acted completely different than when battling Piplup before, covering its face with its fur. It then froze Ash, Dawn, and {{an|Brock}} with {{m|Ice Beam}} and started dancing with Pikachu. Pikachu later scolded Buneary for its actions, upsetting it and making it cry. Buneary stopped crying when it heard something. However, this did not prevent it from being locked inside a glass ball from {{TRT}}'s newest mecha. Pikachu offered to go with [[Jessie]], [[James]], and {{MTR}} if they agreed to free Buneary, but the trio had no plans of letting Buneary go and just wanted to capture Pikachu for {{an|Giovanni|their boss}}. Using {{m|Iron Tail}}, Pikachu managed to break free and save Buneary. Together, they were able to wreck Team Rocket's mecha and then jump before it could explode, with Ash grabbing Pikachu and Buneary landing safely on Dawn's arms. Buneary was later asked if it would like to travel with Dawn. It agreed, but Dawn said they still should have a [[Pokémon battle]].
 
This time, Piplup was prepared for Buneary's moves. Their battle began with Piplup using Bubble Beam, which Buneary dodged. Piplup followed with {{m|Peck}}, only for Buneary to dodge again. When Piplup used another Bubble Beam, Buneary countered with Ice Beam. The two moves clashed, creating an explosion. Buneary then used the smoke to surprise Piplup with Dizzy Punch, but he was able to dodge and use Peck, hitting Buneary and nodding to Dawn so she could throw a [[{{i|Poké Ball]]}}. After a few seconds, Buneary was successfully {{pkmn2|caught}}, joining Dawn on her {{pkmn|journey|quest}} to become a [[Top Coordinator]].
 
[[File:Dawn with Buneary.png|thumb|left|220px|Buneary and Dawn]]
Buneary was the first Pokémon Dawn sent out during her [[Gym]] {{pkmn|battle}} against [[Maylene]] at the [[Veilstone Gym]] in ''[[DP067|Crossing the Battle Line!]]''. Dawn was counting on Buneary's jumping skills to defeat Maylene's {{type|Fighting}} {{OBP|Pokémon|species}}. Going up against {{p|Meditite}}, Buneary started the battle with its {{type|Flying}} Bounce attack. However, the Meditate Pokémon used {{m|Detect}} to sense and then avoid Buneary's move, preventing damage. After that, Meditite managed to hit Buneary with its {{m|Drain Punch}} despite its attempt to spin and dodge the attack. Buneary got up and used Ice Beam, {{status|freezing}} Meditite briefly as it used {{m|Confusion}} to break from the ice and direct the shards at Buneary. Thanks to its footwork skills, Buneary was able to avoid the ice shards, but Meditite used Confusion one more time to lift Buneary into the air then toss it down to the ground. By extending its rolled-up ears, Buneary softened the impact before using Bounce. Meditite then used Drain Punch and the two Pokémon clashed in mid-air, causing an explosion and rendering Buneary [[Fainting|unable to continue battling]].
 
In ''[[DP078|Pruning a Passel of Pals!]]'', Buneary was used in the Battle Round of the [[Wallace Cup]]. It battled against a {{p|Wailmer}} and won, allowing Dawn to advance in the competition.

In ''[[DP167|Teaching the Student Teacher!]]'', Buneary was called out to help Dawn perfect her newest [[Contest combination]], the Ice Chandelier. It used its Ice Beam to trap {{TP|Dawn|Pachirisu}} in a ball of ice and Pachirisu used its {{m|Discharge}} to make the ice shine brightly. This combination was later used by Pachirisu and {{TP|Dawn|Mamoswine}} in the [[Grand Festival]].
 
In ''[[DP174|Last Call — First Round!]]'', Buneary was used in the Performance Stage of the [[Sinnoh Grand Festival]] along with {{TP|Dawn|Cyndaquil}}. Both of them were sent out with [[Seal|Line Seals]] and Buneary used Ice Beam to create a large frozen path resembling a roller coaster. Cyndaquil proceeded with {{m|Flame Wheel}}, rolling over the path and melting a trench for Buneary to slide on. After that, Buneary charged an Ice Beam and Cyndaquil used {{m|Smokescreen}} in order to cloak themselves above a large frozen spike. When the smoke was blown away, Buneary was seen inside a [[Poké Ball]] made of ice with Cyndaquil standing on top, impressing the judges and securing Dawn a place among the {{pkmn|Coordinator}}s advancing to the [[Contest Battle]]s. It was later used in ''[[DP176|Coming Full-Festival Circle!]]'', where it battled along with Cyndaquil against [[Jessie|Jessilina]]'s {{TP|Jessie|Seviper}} and {{TP|James|Carnivine}} in the semifinals of the competition. Together they managed to defeat their opponents and advance Dawn to the final round.
 
It was revealed in ''[[DP191|Memories are Made of Bliss!]]'' that Buneary had been chosen by [[Hermione]] to be a model of the Poké Chic magazine. As a result, Dawn decided to remain in the [[Sinnoh]] [[region]] while {{Ash}} and {{an|Brock}} returned to [[Kanto]].
In [[SS024]], it was used to help fight off the {{p|Ariados}} that were attacking Dawn and [[Shinko]]. It was caught in {{m|String Shot}} and couldn't do anything until Cyndaquil [[Evolution|evolved]] into {{TP|Dawn|Quilava}} and saved it.
 
===={{series|Best Wishes}}====
In ''[[BW086|Piplup, Pansage, and a Meeting of the Times!]]'', Buneary was introduced to {{Ash}}, {{an|Iris}}, and {{an|Cilan}}'s Pokémon. UponIt was initially shy about seeing so many unfamiliar faces, but upon seeing Pikachu, it quickly embraced him, much to {{AP|Oshawott}}'s disappointment.
 
===Personality and characteristics===
[[File:Buneary cheering.png|thumb|220px|Buneary cheering]]
Buneary often displays traditional feminine traits similar to its {{pkmn|Trainer}}. It enjoys dressing up in beautiful outfits and showing off in them, particularly to {{AP|Pikachu}}. It began wearing a vest with a heart on it in ''[[DP070|The Bells Are Singing!]]'', which was designed by {{an|Dawn}} and sewed by [[Johanna]]. It appears to be very proud of its vest and, for the most part, only takes it off to compete in [[Pokémon Contest]]s.
 
Buneary has been shown to be a helpful Pokémon. For instance, in ''[[DP094|Doc Brock!]]'', it took off herits vest to give to {{TP|Dawn|Pachirisu}} when the {{type|Electric}} {{OBP|Pokémon|species}} was {{pkmn|illness[[Illness in the Pokémon world|sick}}]] from storing too much electricity. It also used Ice Beam to make an ice pack for Pachirisu in order to bring its fever down.
 
[[File:Buneary and Pikachu.png|thumb|left|220px|Buneary's affection towards Pikachu]]
Buneary [[LagomorphShipping|developed a crush]] on Pikachu after it spotted him grabbing a potato that [[Brock's Croagunk]] had tossed in the air. It is shown to be sensitive whenever Pikachu gets frustrated with its acts of affection at times that don't call for it. When around Pikachu, it gets flustered and hides its face in its fur. However, it is always cheering for Pikachu when he participates in [[Gym]] {{pkmn|battle}}s and, when not being used herselfitself, for Dawn during Contests.
 
Buneary has shown time after time that it was meant to compete in Contests, using its moves in unique ways that make it more noticeable such as making an ice slide from {{m|Ice Beam}} as an [[appeal]]. Commonly it combines Ice Beam with spinning and sliding actions when performing in a Contest.
Despite her size, Buneary is very powerful and was able to tire out [[Maylene]]'s {{p|Meditite}} enough so that {{TP|Dawn|Ambipom}} could defeat it. Its Ice Beam, which appears to be its main attack, is powerful enough to freeze an entire lake.
 
Upon its return in [[Unova]] with Dawn and the others, after becoming embraced with Pikachu, it was shown to be quite shy, hiding behind {{TP|Dawn|Mamoswine}} when everybody was introducing each other's Pokémon. However, upon seeing Pikachu, a face it did recognize, it quickly embraced him.
