Kubfu (Japanese: ダクマ Dakuma) is a Fighting-type Legendary Pokémon introduced during Generation VIII, in The Isle of Armor.

It evolves into Urshifu when shown the scroll in one of the Towers of Two Fists or when exposed to the Scroll of Darkness or the Scroll of Waters. The form it evolves into depends on how it evolves.

(Refer to Game data→Evolution data for more details.)

Biology

Kubfu is a small, bearlike Pokémon. Its body is primarily dark gray, with a yellow snout and white patches of fur on its head and chest. The patch of fur on its forehead partially covers its black eyes, and has two black downturned eyebrows on top. Additionally, there are two white ribbons of fur located behind its head. Kubfu builds up power and fighting spirit by pulling on these ribbons. Its nose is black and it has a perpetual frown. It has black claws and toes, the latter of which are shaped like triangles. Its tail has a black, spiky appearance.

Kubfu works hard to train both body and mind, even if it suffers defeat. It has a unique organ that allows it to create "fighting energy" through special breathing techniques and intense focusing. Kubfu are known to live in mountains far away from Galar, although they lived in the region at one point. According to historical texts, Kubfu used to help people on their travels, and they gradually naturalized to the lands they traveled to.[1] It has been referred as the "secret armor" of the Master Dojo. The moves it masters by reading the scrolls in either of the Towers of Two Fists will determine which style it takes after evolving. While it can be timid, it can become more brave and confident once trained up. Kubfu loves Kubfu Treats made by Snacksworth, who once encountered and trained with it in the past.

Evolution

Kubfu evolves into Urshifu.

Main article: Mustard's Kubfu

Kubfu first appeared in PASS32. It was the "secret armor" of the Master Dojo, and was given to Trainers who complete the dojo's three trials. Despite this, Mustard decided to let it see the world alongside Casey, but she rejected the offer as she already had a full team. Mustard then allowed it to walk with Henry instead. Once Kubfu had finished its training and evolved into Urshifu, it officially joined Henry's team.

Name origin

Kubfu may be a combination of cub and kung fu.

Dakuma may be a combination of 打 da (hit), 熊 kuma (bear), and 琢磨 takuma (cultivation of skill).
