Fearow (Japanese: オニドリル Onidoriru) is a Normal/Flying-type Pokémon introduced in Generation I.


It has a large wingspan, an elongated neck, and a thin, long beak: all characteristics being a radical departure from its short-winged, stubby-beaked pre-evolved form, Spearow.

Special abilities

Fearow uses its great wings to catch air currents and effortlessly glide over large distances for as long as a day without having to land or rest. It flies high into the sky, and swoops down at its prey. By using a combination of its neck and beak, it has a long reach, allowing it to pluck bugs from the ground or easily pluck prey from soil or water as it swoops down. If it senses danger, it avoids it if possible.

In the anime

In one of Ash's adventures, the trainer tries to catch a large and stubborn Fearow. After this Fearow is found to be a leader of a huge flock of Spearow, Ash's Pidgeotto tries to protect him. After several failed attempts to defeat the Fearow, Pidgeotto evolves into Pidgeot. Pidgeot quickly routes the Fearow and its brood, but Ash is unable to catch it.

Jessie's Fearow was used in multiple episodes, usually beside Seviper, Cacnea and Dustox but it had a habit of pecking at her and was only on her team for 16 episodes before it got the boot. It is unknown when she caught it.

Gary's Fearow was seen in The Ties That Bind, however, this was on a screen, and not in person.

Skyler's Fearow was seen in The Big Balloon Blow-up.

Tyson's Fearow was seen in Talkin' Bout an Evolution and Rage of Innocance.

In Mewtwo Strikes Back, Mewtwo used a Fearow to scout out strong trainers.


Fearow evolves from Spearow at level 20.
