Interested in where to find Teddiursa while exploring the Hisui region? We’ve got you covered.

Teddiursa has become the latest Pokemon to expand into a three-branch evolutionary family with Pokemon Legends: Arceus. Now, trainers can take their adorable baby bear and turn it into a full-fledged guardian of nature through its pre-established evolution, Ursaring, and into its newest form, Ursaluna.

According to its PokeDex description, Teddiursa is constantly licking its paws clean of honey stolen from nearby Combee nests. It’s known to be “cunning” in its own way—being able to sneak into the nests and pilfer the honey with ease. Its Hisuian PokeDex number is #112.

Where to Find Teddiursa in Pokemon Legends: Arceus

Teddiursa has two spawn locations within the Hisui region:

  • Ursa’s Ring (Crimson Mirelands)
  • Sonorous Path (Coronet Highlands)

This Pokemon is not skittish and has been known to attack trainers that come too close. However, it’s Achille’s Heel is honey, so Dazzling Honey or Honey Cake items will be a sufficient distraction to lure it away. Trainers may also want to use this method to get into position for the perfect back strike.

It’s interesting to think about just how much foreshadowing this species has. Teddiursa’s evolved form, Ursaring, is a clear reference to Ursa’s Ring in the Crimson Mirelands down to the letter—or, rather, the former is a reference to the latter, if fans are specifying the order of release over the chronological in-universe timeline. Both of these are meant to draw attention to the circular marking on Ursaring’s stomach.

In contrast, Ursaluna appears to be a callback to the crescent moon marking on Teddiursa’s forehead. In fact, Ursaluna has a full moon marking on it’s forehead. Some have gone on to speculate that its eyebrows are meant to be “clouds” artistically obscuring the moon.
