Happy Father’s Day!
Ursaring, the Hibernator Pokémon. An excellent tree climber, it snaps trees with its front legs, and eats the fallen fruit.

It’s Papa Bear in honour of Father’s Day today! (yes, Ursaring is 50% female) Apparently bears are not very good fathers, as they kill their young…
Anyway, Ursaring is a grown-up bear, and it looks rather angry, maybe someone woke it from its nap. Its name refers to the ring on its chest, which is pretty bad for defense, as demonstrated in this Rarecandytreatment comic strip, haha.
Both of its abilities have to do with effects of status ailments; Guts raises Attack while Quick Feet raises Speed, when Ursaring is Burned, Paralyzed, or Poisoned, and it can learn Facade, which doubles in power under a status ailment, which makes good use of its abilities. Stat-wise, Ursaring has a lot of Attack, but is rather slow.
