Bewear (Japanese: キテルグマ Kiteruguma) is a recurring Pokémon character in the anime who appeared in the Sun & Moon series. She appears to have appointed herself as Team Rocket's caretaker during their stay in the Alola region.

In the anime

Bewear rescuing Team Rocket

Sometime prior to the Sun & Moon series, Bewear lived with her baby Stufful, who she loved very much. One day, she couldn't find Stufful, leaving her extremely dismayed. Unbeknownst to her, Stufful had been trapped under a fallen tree and was rescued by Wicke of the Aether Foundation, who then took it to her workplace to recover.

Ash and Pikachu first met Bewear in Alola to New Adventure! after they got lost in a forest while chasing after a Grubbin. Ash and Pikachu greeted her with a smile, but panicked and ran off upon seeing Bewear destroying trees nearby in joy. Bewear eventually lost the two after Tapu Koko distracted her, and she sighed sadly.

Bewear met Jessie, James, Meowth, and Wobbuffet in Loading the Dex!, taking Jessie and James away from battle and to her den in the forest, while Meowth, Wobbuffet and Mimikyu followed them. In First Catch in Alola, Ketchum-Style!, after Jessie caught Mimikyu at the den, Bewear proceeded to give them some honey before heading off. A tribe of wild Pikipek and Trumbeak soon came and stole all of the Berries in Bewear's den, so Team Rocket agreed to not only catch the Pokémon, but return the Berries to Bewear out of gratitude for giving Team Rocket food and shelter. When Bewear picked up Team Rocket to take them back to the den, they had only retrieved the Berries.

Bewear has since been seen dragging Team Rocket away from a battle before they could be sent blasting off, or even succeed in their plans.

In The Sun, the Scare, the Secret Lair!, Team Rocket decided to use Bewear's den as their base of operations whilst in Alola. They completed their new base in A Seasoned Search!.

In Securing the Future!, Bewear prevented the trio from interfering in the latest crisis to hit Alola. She later encouraged them to assist in showering Necrozma with light so it could return to its normal form.

When Bewear picked Team Rocket up from Aether Paradise in Don't Ignore the Small Stufful!, she was reunited with Stufful and took it with them.

In Beauty is Only Crystal Deep!, Bewear found her den damaged after a Pheromosa attacked Jessie and James and stole their Z-Crystals. Later, she found Pheromosa battling Jessie, James, and the Ultra Guardians. Seeing that Jessie, James, and Meowth were hurt, Bewear flew into a rage and attacked the Ultra Beast, easily defeating it. Afterwards, she retrieved the stolen Z-Crystals and took Team Rocket back to her den.

In SM122, Team Rocket, having previously lied about having captured Bewear, learned that Matori was on her way to Alola to bring Bewear back to Kanto with her. As a result, they attempted to catch Bewear, but she crushed the Poké Ball to dust. Later, when Team Rocket were attempting to catch Grandpa Forest, Bewear and Stufful showed up and took the trio, along with Matori and her Alolan Meowth, back to its den. That night, while Bewear was out swimming, Matori captured Stufful and was in the process of taking it back to Kanto when the trio intervened, distracting her and covertly substituting Stufful for Meowth. Soon after Matori realized this, Bewear broke through the window and rescued Meowth. Later, when Matori attempted to contact the trio, Bewear answered, which scared Matori. Bewear then crushed the communication device to dust.

Personality and characteristics

Bewear is a friendly and very hospitable Pokémon. After bringing Team Rocket into her den, she began sharing the food she gathered with them and their Pokémon, and allowed them to stay. Bewear is very protective of Team Rocket, but her rescues can be unreliable. In The Sun, the Scare, the Secret Lair!, Bewear even "rescued" the trio just before they were going to defeat Ash and his Pokémon in a fair fight. In Why Not Give Me a Z-Ring Sometime?, Team Rocket went so far as to make decoy versions of themselves to make sure that Bewear didn't spirit them away before they got their Z-Power Ring from Nanu. She even went all the way to Kanto to rescue Team Rocket as seen in Alola, Kanto!. Bewear's hospitality towards Team Rocket was also shown in Young Kiawe Had a Farm!, where she was happy to lie and cuddle with them on a patch of grass. Her hospitality was so well taken by Team Rocket that Jessie even tried to share some malasadas with her, an act that she would almost never do.

Bewear likes to keep her den tidy, hefting large boulders above her head to clear them out from the area in front of her entrance. She also has enormous physical strength and agility, as shown by her ninja-like movements when rescuing Team Rocket; and in Getting to Know You!, when, among being presented a gift of malasadas, she almost strangled Jessie with joy.

Bewear likes to comfort Team Rocket, as seen in One Journey Ends, Another Begins..., where she was shown softly hugging Meowth, to console him, due to the fact that he was worried about Litten. She also showed her softer side in Mallow and the Forest Teacher!, by choosing to trade some bags of Honey that she had with a wild Oranguru's Pinap Juice, despite the fact that Team Rocket was in the middle of battling against Mallow, her Steenee, and the Oranguru.

Bewear has been depicted as being strong. This was best demonstrated in A Mission of Ultra Urgency!, when she encountered a Buzzwole; she was able to hold her own, only to stop when she realized that Team Rocket were nearby and subsequently grabbed them before fleeing. Thanks to her strength, she was also able to perform seemingly impossible feats, like jumping across rooftops in A Shocking Grocery Run!, flying through the air by using her legs as a propeller in Big Sky, Small Fry!, and running across the surface of the ocean from Kanto to Alola for at least three days in When Regions Collide!. Her strength was seen once again in Beauty is Only Crystal Deep!, where it was able to battle and defeat Pheromosa.

When Bewear came to rescue Team Rocket in A Battle Hand-Off!, she was persuaded by Mimikyu to hold off taking them back to Melemele Island. When Mimikyu was defeated, Bewear softly picked Mimikyu up and took them home. In SM121, Bewear came to pick up Team Rocket from Oranguru's Café, but she left Meowth behind at his request as he wanted some peace and quiet.

Bewear enjoys hot springs for longer than normal humans and Pokémon can, as seen in the Poké Problem of I Choose Paradise!, where she was seen continuing to relax in the hot springs at the Pokémon Paradise Resort, even after Team Rocket jumped out of the hot spring due to their bodies becoming too hot.

Bewear has a gentle side, as seen in Don't Ignore the Small Stufful!, when it was revealed to have mothered a Stufful. It was later shown that Bewear returned the helicopter propeller it broke off to fly back to her den and Wicke later discovered that she had left some honey behind as a thank you for taking care of Stufful. In the Poké Problem segment for the same episode, after reuniting with her child and they were both in the den, Bewear let out a laugh, much to the surprise of Team Rocket.

In SM122, Bewear is shown that it doesn't want to be caught, as seen when Jessie attempted to catch it in a Poké Ball, only for Bewear to easily destroyed it. Bewear is shown to be a good host, as seen when Matori and her Alolan Meowth were visiting that she feed them honey the same way that she would Jessie, James and Meowth. When Matori attempted to kidnap Stufful, only to end up with Meowth who had disguised himself as Stufful were heading back to Kanto, Bewear came to Meowth's defense. This had an impact on Matori as seen when she attempted to contact the trio, Bewear answered which immediately scared her.
