Attempting to wear down an angered Articuno’s defensive capabilities is even more difficult than simply damaging it, for it can enshroud itself in a potent mist that makes connecting with such debilitating attacks as String Shot or Leer all but impossible. Should you find yourself lost in the mountains during a storm and be fortunate enough to be rescued by Articuno, do the smart thing and leave the bird alone afterwards; if [[UngratefulBastard you rebuff its hospitality by trying to capture it]], then it will in all likelihood ''kill'' you and leave your frozen corpse as a warning to any others who would attempt something so foolish.

During Team Rocket's occupation of Saffron City, the terrorist organization did their best to prevent any information from entering or leaving the city, killing journalists and sabotaging media outlets throughout the city. Despite these efforts, information was successfully leaked that they had taken control of the primary offices of Silph Co., and public speculation ran wild as to what an organization with a history of sordid genetic experimentation could want with the company. The prevailing rumour was that they were attempting to [[PokemonAdventures clone a bizarre hybrid of Articuno, Zapdos, and Moltres]] for use as a weapon of mass-destruction that they would then hold over the government's head in order to gain control of the nation.

While Articuno is a gentle Pokémon that will not hesitate to help those requiring and deserving of its aid, this generosity should ''never'', under any circumstances, be mistaken for weakness. The biting, frigid cold at this bird’s command is more than sufficient to snuff the flames of even the strongest Fire-type Pokémon, and its durable, frost-coated feathers and [[http://bulbapedia.bulbagarden.net/wiki/Reflect_(move) ability to throw up kinetic barriers]] allow it to survive even the most devastating assault a Trainer could hope to throw at it.

Articuno is a unique specimen with the impressive ability to arrest kinetic energy by flapping its wings, causing it to siphon heat out of the surrounding environment whenever it flies. This strange ability is so potent that [[BigBadassBirdOfPrey Articuno]] is always followed by a rolling snowstorm except in the hottest of climates.

Recent sightings have been confirmed within the Johto Region by renowned photographer Todd Snap, whom is known for obtaining photographic evidence of the legendary [[FanonPokedex/{{Mew}} Mew]]. When interviewed about the encounter, Mr Snap replied, ''"[Articuno] seemed to'' know ''that all I wanted was its picture. I'm not sure how, but I just know that was the case, and it seemed kind enough to give me the perfect shot."''

Articuno has long been venerated by the inhabitants of Kanto and the Orange Islands as the Avatar of Frost, being superior to [[{{FanonPokedex/Zapdos}} Zapdos]], Avatar of Lightning and inferior to [[{{FanonPokedex/Moltres Moltres]], Avatar of Flame. In this way, [[PowerTrio these birds form a sacred Triad]] of [[FireIceLightning Fire, Ice, and Lightning]] that preserves the equilibrium of the world; should their balance be disrupted, a great cataclysm would befall our world.

[[StoneWall Articuno]] is a large avian [[{{Mons}} Pokémon]] that stands taller than the average man. It is easily recognized by its distinctive blue plumage, a crest formed by three diamond-shaped feathers, and the tail, which forms a long and elegant train while the bird is in flight. The creature’s breast is white, its eyes are red, and both its talons and its sharp beak are slate grey. Most notably, when its wings are spread the pinions cause them to resemble a snowflake, and its feathers glisten with a light layer of frost at all times.

As it spends much of its time [[{{Pun}} on the wing]], [[BigBadassBirdOfPrey Articuno]] is rarely seen by the populace at large. It was most frequently observed in the vicinity of the Seafoam Islands prior to the eruption of the Cinnabar Volcano; since then, it departed north for cooler climes. It was also one of several Legendary [[{{Mons}} Pokémon]] to become involved in the Cipher Incident in Orre several years ago; in all the months since, it has not been seen outside of its shrine on Ice Island, apparently recuperating from whatever harm befell it during that time.
