Buneary is a tiny, bipedal, rabbit-like Pokémon with curling brown ears. It has two kinds of fur on its body: a light tan fleece covering most of its lower body, feet, and the ends of its ears, and a silky, chocolate-colored pelt covering the top half of its body. It features a little pink snout that is triangular in shape, pink paw pads on the undersides of its feet, and small tan dots above its eyes. It has a little brown puff on the end of its tail.

Buneary’s ears flare up when it detects danger. It might also indicate that Buneary need medical attention owing to a problem with its health or mind. It has amazing leaping skills and can deliver tremendous strikes with its curled up ears. When necessary, it may be viewed with one curled up ear to quickly retaliate. It may improve the potency of this strike via practicing. Buneary sleeps with its head curled beneath its fur during chilly evenings. It prefers to dwell in woods, although it may also be found on snowy slopes. It is almost certainly herbivorous. Buneary also enjoys eating specific types of wildflowers.
