A legendary bird Pokemon. It can create blizzards by freezing moisture in the air.
Articuno is the first Legendary that you're able to catch in Red/Blue/Yellow and Fire Red/Leaf Green. It's a dual type - Flying and Ice. You'll want to catch it if you want to have an easier time defeating the Elite Four, especially if you're like me and only level up a Kadabra the entire game up until the Elite Four and then find yourself royally screwed. Articuno is found on the bottom floor of the Seafoam Island caves and has no signature move. (However, as one of the only five Ice Pokemon in Generation 1, it could learn Blizzard, Ice Beam, and Sheer Cold naturally.)
Articuno is a genderless species. Articuno takes the form of a large bird with predominantly blue plumage. . 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. Its translucent wings are imbued with the essence of frigidity, and the flapping of its wings chills the air, causing the conversion of water particles in the air into snow or ice, causing snow to fall when it flies overhead. In legend, Articuno resides within the confines of icy mountains, because those who have seen its were often doomed explorers scaling such mountains, and therefore it is believed Articuno makes it a point to appear before them and save them.
