Articuno is a Ice/Flying-type Legendary Pokémon introduced in Generation I.

Appearance

Articuno is a large bird with blue plumage. Its coloring is darkest on its head crest and long, streaming tail. Its body is colored sky-blue, while growing lighter on its front, and its chest is a lighter blue then anything. Its most distinctive trait is its large wings, which are said to be made of ice. It's eyes are a medium shade of red. In the second Pokémon movie, Articuno also played a major role because only the chosen one (Ash) could place the orb on the altar to end the war of the three legendary birds.

In the anime

Articuno in the anime

Articuno appears in the Anime when a boy named Todd, who loves to take pictures, takes pictures of Articuno in the episode "Freeze Frame". Ash and co. befriended Articuno after Articuno's blizzard blew away Team Rocket.

The same Articuno appears again and is a friend of factory head Noland in the episode "Numero Uno Articuno". Noland became Articuno's friend when he saved the injured Articuno on his plane. Ash attempted to get the Knowledge Symbol by defeating Articuno, which obeyed Noland's command, and he accomplished this by using Charizard.

Name Origin

Articuno's name is a cross of the words arctic and uno, the Spanish word for one. The second part of its name indicates that it is the first in the series of Kanto's Legendary Birds.

Its Japanese name is simply Freezer.

Name Pun

It is uninformed that this is purposely made but the last syllable of each of the Legendary Birds is a number in Spanish (ex. Articuno, Zapdos, Moltres). With this in mind, Articuno would be the first of the Legendary Birds.
