Description

Articuno takes the form of a large bird with predominantly blue plumage. Its coloring is a cyan on its long streamer-like tail and head crest. Its head crest is fairly simple, consisting of three rhombus-shaped feathers on its forehead. Its body is a sky-blue, growing lighter on its chest and belly. Its most distinctive feature is its large wings, which look like they are made of ice. It has a small gray beak and thin, similarly-colored legs. Articuno's name comes from combining the words "arctic" (frozen wasteland), and "uno," which is Spanish for one. The other two birds have similiar naming conventions. This Ice/Flying type can create powerful blizzards by freezing moisture in the open air. Articuno is part of the Legendary Bird Trio along with Zapdos and Moltres.
