Cubchoo (Japanese: クマシュン Kumasyun) is an Ice-type Pokémon.

It evolves into Beartic starting at level 37.

Biology

Physiology

Cubchoo is an ursine Pokémon with a light blue head and neck. It has a slightly pointed head, with large round ears, shiny, dark, oval-shaped eyes, and a darker-blue muzzle. Cubchoo has a shiny dark nose, from which a considerable amount of light blue nasal mucus, the source of its attacks, droops. The lower part of its body is white, with rounded forepaws, digit-less feet with black paw-pads, and a small round tail.

Gender differences

None.

Special abilities

A Cubchoo's nose is constantly running. It inhales the mucus and uses it in its attacks. If it is in bad health, the mucus becomes watery, which powers down its Ice-type techniques.

Trivia

  • Cubchoo is the only Generation V Pokémon that can have the Ability Rattled.

Origin

Cubchoo is based on a polar bear cub. The mucus it possesses was probably inspired by the fact that cold weather often results in a runny nose.

Name origin

Cubchoo is a combination of cub and ah-choo (sound of a sneeze).

Kumasyun may be a combination of くま kuma (bear) and くしゅん kushun (onomatopoeia of a sneeze).
