Ursaring (Japanese: リングマ Ringuma) is a Normal-type Pokémon introduced in Generation II.

It evolves from Teddiursa starting at level 30.

Contents

Biology

Ursaring is a bipedal, ursine Pokémon. Its broad body is covered in brown fur, except its muzzle, inner ears, and paw pads, which are a light tan. It has narrow eyes, a triangular, black nose, and a wide mouth with small, visible fangs in the upper jaw. The fur on Ursaring's shoulders is longer and more structured, with rectangular extensions that resemble epaulettes. A female Ursaring has longer fur on its shoulders than a male. There is a large, tan, ring-shaped mark on its chest. Ursaring's forelimbs are long, ending in five claws each, while its hind legs are short and thick, ending in three claws each. Its tail is large and spherical in shape.

Ursaring lives in mountainous forests, sleeping in treetops and gathering food throughout the day. While it is skilled at climbing trees, it gathers food by snapping them and collecting whatever berries or fruits fall down. It will mark trees bearing delicious fruit in its territory with its claws. Ursaring's sense of smell can distinguish any aroma, and as such, it can find food buried deep underground or in streams. As demonstrated in the anime, Ursaring is highly protective of its young, and has been shown to become more aggressive during mating season.

Trivia

  • Ursaring and Donphan, along with their pre-evolved forms, are the only Pokémon to swap version-exclusive status between localizations. While Teddiursa and Ursaring are found only in the Japanese and Korean Silver, they are not found in Silver in other languages, being found in the Gold Version of those languages instead, with Phanpy and Donphan getting the opposite treatment. This is corrected in the remakes HeartGold and SoulSilver, where they follow the Japanese and Korean Gold and Silver.
  • Ursaring's number of claws has changed over time and between canons. In its original artwork, Ursaring has four visible claws; however, in its HeartGold and SoulSilver artwork, it has five claws. In the Generation II games, it has three claws. From Pokémon Ruby and Sapphire up to and including Pokémon Platinum, it has four claws. From HeartGold and SoulSilver onwards, Ursaring has had five claws in its game sprites. In the anime, it has always had five claws.

Origin

Ursaring is based on the Asian black bear, the Japanese name of which (ツキノワグマ tsukinowaguma) literally means "ring-of-the-moon bear".[1]

Name origin

Ursaring's name is a combination of ursa (Latin for bear) and ring (referring to the circle on its stomach).

Ringuma is a combination of リング ringu (ring) and 熊 kuma (bear). rin is also a reading for 輪 (ring).
