Bewear (Japanese: キテルグマ Kiteruguma) is a dual-type Normal/Fighting Pokémon introduced in Generation VII.

It evolves from Stufful starting at level 27.

Biology

Bewear is a black and pink Pokémon resembling a bipedal bear. Its legs and the front of its body are black, while its head, back, and tail are pink. Across the top of its head is a white band with two tufts of fur on each end. This white marking gives it the appearance of wearing a headband with decorative bear ears. It has a short, white muzzle with a triangular black nose and two small, black eyes. There are pink paw pads on its front paws consisting of the palm and three digital pads. The hind paws have three white digital pads on the front. It has a short tail with dark pink rings.

While Bewear may appear friendly, it is actually a very dangerous Pokémon — even considered to be the most dangerous Pokémon in Alola. It must never be approached carelessly, even if it is merely swinging its arms around in a friendly fashion, which is used as a warning. It shows affection with a fond embrace, but its hugs have incredible force. Trainers of this Pokémon must teach it how to restrain itself when showing affection.[1] Its hugs are powerful enough to shatter bones and have killed many Trainers. Bewear also uses its arms to subdue its prey before taking it back to its nest. Bewear is capable of using amazing martial arts moves. Bewear is said to have learned them by observing Black Belts training in the woods. In Lental, Bewear are known to hibernate during seasons when food is scarce.

Prior to Generation VIII, Bewear and its pre-evolved form, Stufful, were the only known Pokémon that could have Fluffy as an Ability.

Evolution

Bewear evolves from Stufful.

Trivia

  • Bewear and its pre-evolution are the first Pokémon evolution family to make their Pokémon GO debut in a Community Day.

Origin

Bewear seems to be based on a red panda and a stuffed bear. It also has some similarities to a mascot costume. It may also take inspiration from the use of wrestling bears in professional wrestling, as well as the bear hug, a professional wrestling move used for submission. Bewear also looks like it's wearing an animal-ears headband.

Name origin

Bewear may be a combination of beware, wear, and bear.

Kiteruguma may be a combination of 着てる kiteru (wearing), 着ぐるみ kigurumi (costume), and 熊 kuma (bear).
