Teddiursa’s Pickup ability by TheFredricus

Fredrika is one of the few Swedish artists  that joined our first Pokemon collaboration in 2016 with Gastly and Lickitung.  When we announced the Pokemon Generation II Tribute, she was one of the first artists on board again and took Flaaffy, Marill and Teddiursa to drew them in her cute style.

“The Pokémon may pick up the item an opposing Pokémon used during a battle. It may pick up items outside of battle, too.”

Pickup is an ability that certain Pokemon can have that allows Pokemon to pick up random items either in battle or outside of battle should they not be holding an item already.

From Generation V onwards, if a Pokemon with the Pickup ability was not holding an item during a battle, it has a 10% chance of creating an item for itself after the battle has ended. The Pickup move was only illustrated one time for our Pokemon tribute so far.


Teddiursa used Scratch by XyvernArtworks

XyvernArtworks is one of the few artists from Puerto Rico that became part of the Game-Art-HQ community. Pichu was the first submission by XyvernArtworks for our Gen II Tribute. Wooper and Teddiursa were his next two illustrations!

“Hard, pointed, sharp claws rake the target to inflict damage.”

Scratch is a damage-dealing Normal-type move first introduced in Generation I. It is a very basic move and a lot of low-levelled Pokemon can naturally learn it, as well as a few starter Pokemon knowing it upon releasing them from their Pokeball.

If used after Leer in a Pokemon contest then an extra for appeal points can be gained. Charmander, the female Nidoran and even Teddiursa are scratching their path through our Pokemon Tribute 😛

“It lets honey soak into its paws so it can lick them all the time. Every set of paws tastes unique.”


Teddiursa is a Normal-type Pokemon that can evolve into Ursaring starting at level 30. It is known that they use Beedrill pollen and fruit to create its own honey. The marking on its face will glow when it finds honey that is already made.

It is one of the fourteen foreign Pokemon you can collect in Pokemon Diamond and Pearl and appears to be based off that of a teddy bear. The ‘ursa’ at the end of its name is Latin for ‘bear’.

In the Pokemon movie ‘Spell of the Unown’, Molly Hale creates a dream Teddiursa with the help of Entei in order to fight Brock’s team. The same Teddiursa can be seen at the end of the movie and appears to now be real as opposed to a dream-made one.
