Urshifu (Japanese: ウーラオス Wulaosu) is a Fighting-type Legendary Pokémon introduced in Generation VIII.

It evolves from Kubfu. It has two Gigantamax forms, one for each Style.

It has one of two different secondary types: Dark or Water. Its secondary type is permanent and is determined by how Kubfu was trained when evolved.

Urshifu is the game mascot of The Isle of Armor.

Please feel free to edit this section to add missing information and complete it.
Reason: Describing the Urshifu and Gigantamax Urshifu's appearances along with forms.

Urshifu's style and personality is determined by how it trained as a Kubfu.

Single Strike Style Urshifu prefers battling without holding back. If enraged, it will mercilessly attack the opponent until utterly crushed. Its movements are direct and involve rushing in a straight line. When it is a certain distance away from an opponent, it quickly leaps in to unleash a powerful blow.

Rapid Strike Style Urshifu prefers calmly observing the opponent and their strength while dodging. It uses flowing movements to ward off an opponent's attack before overwhelming them with rapid strikes.[1]

Gigantamax Single Strike Style Urshifu has been called "the very embodiment of rage" and "a divine emissary that banishes evil spirits with its fury."

Rapid Strike Style Urshifu maintains a stance in a calm manner while in Gigantamax form. Opponents who face it may either feel greatly agitated or experience a sense of relief, as if freed from evil spirits.[2]

Trivia

Origin

Urshifu may be based on an Asian black bear and a wushu fighter. Rapid Strike Style's Water typing may be a reference to the "be like water" quote in martial arts.

Name origin

Urshifu may be a combination of ursus (Latin for bear) and shifu (Chinese for master).

Wulaosu may be a combination of wushu (Chinese martial arts), 老師 / 老师 lǎoshī (Chinese for teacher), and possibly ウラー urā (hurrah, battle cry) and 押忍 osu (interjection used in Japanese martial arts).
