Bewear

Bewear is a Normal/Fighting type Pokémon introduced in Generation 7. It is known as the Strong Arm Pokémon.

When Bewear is acting in a friendly fashion, just swinging its arms around, you must never dare to approach it carelessly. It is acknowledged to be a dangerous Pokémon, even within the Alola region. You may see warning signs posted near places it resides.

When Bewear grows fond of its Trainer, it may show that feeling in a fond embrace—but the force of that hug is tremendous! Trainers must teach these Pokémon how to restrain their strength when showing affection.

Pokédex entries

Sun This immensely dangerous Pokémon possesses overwhelming physical strength. Its habitat is generally off-limits.
Moon This Pokémon has the habit of hugging its companions. Many Trainers have left this world after their spines were squashed by its hug.
Ultra Sun It waves its hands wildly in intimidation and warning. Life is over for anyone who doesn’t run away as fast as possible.
Ultra Moon It boasts tremendous physical strength. Many people call it the most dangerous Pokémon in the Alola region.
Sword Once it accepts you as a friend, it tries to show its affection with a hug. Letting it do that is dangerous—it could easily shatter your bones.
Shield The moves it uses to take down its prey would make a martial artist jealous. It tucks subdued prey under its arms to carry them to its nest.
