Articuno (Japaneseフリーザー Freezer) is a dual-type Ice/Flying Legendary Pokémon introduced in Generation I.

It is not known to evolve into or from any other Pokémon.

In Galar, Articuno has a dual-type Psychic/Flying regional form, introduced in The Crown Tundra expansion of the Pokémon Sword and Shield Expansion Pass.

Along with Zapdos and Moltres, it is one of the three Legendary birds of Kanto.

Biology

Articuno is a large avian Pokémon with predominantly sky blue plumage and wings said to be made of ice. On its forehead is a crest that consists of three, darker blue rhombus-shaped feathers. It has circular red eyes, a short gray beak, and long, thin gray legs. Each foot has three forward-facing toes and one that faces backward. On its chest is a mass of pale blue, downy feathers. Its long, streamer-like tail is longer than its body and the same shade of blue as its crest.

Articuno has the power to control the ice at will. When Articuno flaps its wings, it can chill the moisture in the air around it, making snow fall. It flies from icy mountain to icy mountain. According to legend, it appears before doomed travelers lost in icy regions. As seen in the anime, Articuno sometimes aids travelers and guides them to safety. Articuno lives in cold, isolated locations such as snowy mountains filled with permafrost.

In Galar, Articuno has a distinct appearance. The main body has lavender coloration with a black marking covering its chest. Its feet are black with lavender talons. The three feathers of its crest, which are longer, fused, and folded to the back, have the same purple color as its beak and tail. Its eyes glow light blue, appear to be mostly closed, and are surrounded by a black, mask-like facial disc. When Articuno utilizes its psychic power, the entire mask glows the same color as its eyes, as do the white, feather-like blades of condensed psychic power at the edges of its wings.

Galarian Articuno keeps itself airborne with its psychic power, almost never having to use its wings for this purpose. Instead, the blades on its wings can be used to slice through iron as easily as paper. Its eyes can fire beams of psychic energy that leave its opponents stuck in place, as if frozen solid - this is what earns this Pokémon the name of its Kantonian counterpart. It also has the ability to compose mirages of itself in order to fool its opponent and escape. Its elegant and refined movements belie a cold and callous personality. It can be found in the Crown Tundra once every few decades congregating at the Dyna Tree Hill.[1]

Galarian Articuno is the only Pokémon that can learn the move Freezing Glare.

Articuno first appeared in You know... Articuno!, where it was chased by a group of Team Rocket Grunts at Seafoam Islands. Although it managed to defeat their Muk, it spent so much energy in doing this that it was soon caught by the Grunts and placed under Team Rocket Commander Koga's possession.

Green later caught Articuno before the Gold, Silver & Crystal chapter as a part of overcoming her fear of birds. She used it and the other Legendary birds to battle Lugia and Ho-Oh in Ilex Forest.

Other appearances

When released from a Poké Ball, Articuno will use a Blizzard attack that freezes any opponent that is caught in it for a few seconds.

Trophy information

"Clouds gather, the barometer plunges, and fresh snow falls from the frigid air when this legendary Pokémon takes wing. Graceful and elegant, it boasts long tail feathers that flap in the wind and are lovely to behold. As would be expected, its combat moves are based on its cold nature; they include Ice Beam and Blizzard."

Super Smash Bros. for Nintendo 3DS

Articuno reappears as a trophy in the 3DS game (but not the Wii U edition).

NAThe air around Articuno is always cool, and it can make snow fall on even the hottest of days. It must be the perfect Pokémon to have around in summer! Then again, do you really want to be the one to use a Legendary bird Pokémon as an ice machine? Let's just think this through for a minute.

PALThe air around Articuno is always cool, and it can make snow fall on even the hottest of days. It must be the perfect Pokémon to have around in summer!

Trivia

 
Engraving of Articuno (top right) in Pokémon Emergency!
  • Galarian Articuno shares its category with Liepard. They are both known as the Cruel Pokémon.
  • In the second episode of the anime, there is an engraving on a wall in the Viridian City Pokémon Center that depicts the Legendary birds. Ash mistakes the Articuno engraving as Ho-Oh. While the blue coloration of the stone indicates the Ice type, and the wings and crest feathers are those of Articuno, the multiple tail feathers look nothing like Articuno's tail, being more similar in appearance to those of Ho-Oh.
  • In Red, Blue, and Yellow, as well as FireRed and LeafGreen, there are binoculars in the gate separating Fuchsia City from Route 15, through which Articuno can be seen flying toward the sea. It is still visible in the binoculars even if it is captured or defeated in the Seafoam Islands.
  • In the opening of Spring FeverTodd points out a tall mountain that is Articuno's home. This mountain is, on the outside, the same as Ice Island, Articuno's home in The Power of One.
  • In Pokémon Mystery Dungeon: Explorers of Time and Explorers of Darkness, it is the only one in its trio that cannot be encountered unless the player enters an event password.
    • Also, it is the only Ice Pokémon in IQ group C.
  • Kantonian Articuno is the only Pokémon other than Smeargle and Poliwrath* that is able to learn an accuracy-focusing move and a OHKO move, learning Mind Reader and Sheer Cold. An Articuno using this combination can be fought in the Battle Subway.
  • Articuno is the only Ice-type Pokémon with a regional form.
  • Articuno, alongside the other two Legendary birds, had an Australian Beetle named after it, named Binburrum articuno.

Origin

Articuno may be based on the Simurgh, deriving from the Persian رخ rokh, which is a giant arctic bird. Its long tail and small body also may be a reference to the quetzal. In addition, it is anatomically similar to the white-throated magpie-jay.

Galarian Articuno has feathers reminiscent of a mask worn at a masquerade ball. Its facial disc may also be inspired by owls.

Name origin

Articuno is a combination of arctic (far northern regions of the globe) and uno (Spanish for one, indicating that it is the first in the series of Kanto Legendary birds).

Freezer is literally freezer (that which freezes).
