Beartic (Japanese: ツンベアーTsunbeaa) is an Ice-typePokémon introduced in Generation V. Beartic is the evolved form of Cubchoo. It resembles a large, bipedal polar bear with a beard made out of ice. A Beartic is used by Leader Brycen.
Beartic is an ursine, quadruped creature capable of standing on its hind legs. It has bluish white fur with a shaggy tuft at its rear. Three spikes of ice hang from its lower jaw, forming a beard. Its face consists of a long snout, beady black eyes, and rounded ears. Its large forepaws have black claws and paw pads.
Like Ursaring, Beartic is highly protective of its young, when traveling they often give their offspring a ride.
The Cubchoo family is reminiscent of the Magikarp family. It starts out as a weak-looking Pokémon, but evolves into a strong one.
The drop of mucus coming from the nose of its pre-evolution has become frozen and is now Beartic's beard.
Beartic is the fourth Pokémon to have the appearance of a bear in the series, along with Teddiursa, Ursaring, and Beartic's pre-evolution, Cubchoo.
Beartic is a portmanteau of the words "bear" and "arctic", as it is based on a polar bear.
Beartic is realistically sized; in reality, 8 feet is roughly the size of a polar bear standing on its hind legs.
Beartic's BMI (based on human calculations) is 38.7, compared to the polar bear's BMI (again based on human calculations) of 51.2. This is partly because Beartic is a lot lighter than its real-life counterpart.
