Beartic's first appearance was in Iris and Excadrill Against the Dragon Buster!, where it defeated Iris' Axew and crushed it easily. Although Georgia was uninterested in battling against non-dragon types, it battled against Iris' Excadrill, and defeated it due to it's disobedience. Iris challenges it to a rematch, but Excadrill now obeys Iris, and has learned Focus Blast, giving the two an early upper hand. Beartic's Rock Smash was able to overpower Excadrill's Drill Run and knock it out, though Beartic fainted from exhaustion shortly after.
When Georgia decided to participate in the Club Battle tournament in Reunion Battles In Nimbasa!, she used her Beartic to battle against Sylvester's Joltik. Beartic missed all of its Rock Smash attacks, but won due to its sheer size after Joltik was crushed after a powerful Thunderbolt from Joltik hit Beartic hard.
In Jostling for the Junior Cup!, it was used to battle Iris' Dragonite in the Pokémon World Tournament and showed off several new moves. Despite Dragonite being disobedient to Iris, Dragonite shrugged off a Hidden Power eaisily, but struggled to hold off a Focus Blast following it up. After Ice Beam froze up all of Dragonite's body excluding it's head, another Ice Beam is launched, but Dragonite refused to counter it, and his head was frozen. Dragonite broke through the ice, ran straight through Blizzard and defeated Beartic with a single ThunderPunch, causing Georgia to be eliminated from the tournament. Georgia was horrified that she lost to a dragon type, but since it didn't obey Iris, her record against Iris remains without a loss.
