Physical Description[edit]

A Bisharp Source

Bisharp are humanoid pokemon with a round, red and black head, similar to a war helmet, topped with a golden, double-headed axe blade. Its face is primarily yellow with a black outline. The helmet shrouds most of its yellow-and-black face, although its triangular eyes are visible. Resembling shoulder pads, its red shoulders project slightly over its arms and have a thin yellow line where they meet its black torso. It has white, metallic hands that resemble gloves, with retractable, blades attached. Encircling its torso are two blades, which create the impression of a ribcage. Its thighs are red and become progressively thinner as they connect to the knee. Both of its feet are metallic and split down the middle, resembling cloven hooves similar to steel war boots.

Though extremely rare, some Bisharp have been known to possess blue "armor" instead of red, with their arms, legs, and torso blades adopting a more yellowish hue.


Bisharps were discovered in the region of Unova.


Bisharps tend to live in mountainous or forested areas, though sometimes they take up residence in abandoned structures. They lord over large gangs of Pawniards who aid them in chasing down and immobilizing prey. After the Pawniards have weakened their prey by savagely slashing at it, they allow the Bisharp to make the finishing blow, which it does mercilessly. Although other Bisharp are known to be part of these packs, they will sometimes attempt to fight the standing Bisharp leader for dominance over the gang. Whoever loses the duel is cast out of the gang. Should a Bisharp's head-axe ever chips or breaks, then, regardless of how powerful it is, it will retire as the leader.
