is a movie star that made his vivid debut in a movie called "Enter the Tunbear" ("Enter the Tunbear" is based off of the movie Enter the Dragon
). "Enter the Tunbear" was a huge, worldwide hit as it was the first proper martial arts movie using physical fights. Brycen's Beartic
also played a co-starting role in the movie as well as his other movies "The Way of the Ice" and "Fist of Ice". Those two movies were also huge hits and the cause of long waiting lines at the theaters.
"Enter the Tunbear", is set on a lonely island far off in the sea, dominated by an evil organization. A martial arts tournament is scheduled to open on said island and Brycen
participates. Awaiting him there was the strongest Tunbear. However, having gained respect for each other through fighting, a friendship blossomed between Brycen
and Tunbear and at the end, they combine forces to crushingly defeat the evil organization! However, even though production of the sequel, "The Game of Ice" had already already started, Brycen
suddenly quit and didn't show himself in front of fans any more. Cilan
found out that the reason for not filming was because there was an accident while they were shooting the movie, so Brycen
decided to do some training with Tunbear in the mountains.
After showing Ash Ketchum
and his friends so many things like his training and battling, Brycen
revealed to them that he was the Icirrus Gym leader and that he'd be looking forward to battling against Ash Ketchum
. As an Ice type trainer, his entire battlefield was ice and all his Pokémon that battled against Ash Ketchum
were ice type. Ash Ketchum
proved to be a strong competitor for Brycen
and after a spirited battle with Ash's Krokorok
defeating Brycen's Beartic
in the final match-up, Brycen
congratulated Ash Ketchum
and awarded him the Freeze Badge.
