Pidgeotto (Japanese: ピジョン Pijiyon) is a Normal/Flying-type Pokémon introduced in Generation I.

Biology

Physiology

Red-Blue-Pidgeotto

The Red and Blue Artwork for Pidgeotto

Pidgeotto resembles a small bird and is brightly colored with red and yellow feathers. Due to similarities between Pidgeotto and its evolved form, Pidgeot, many players often get the two confused. Its beak and claws are as sharp as its eyesight.

Special abilities

Pidgeotto has the abilities Keen Eye and Tangled Feet, along with the hidden ability Big Pecks. Keen Eye prevents Pidgeotto from losing accuracy whilst Tangled Feet raises Pidgeotto's evasion when confused. Big Pecks prevents Pidgeotto from losing defense.

Behavior

Pidgeotto can be dangerous and should be approached with caution. This is due to its large size and aggressive territorial nature. It will attack anything that wanders into its territory if it perceives the intruder as a threat, which it often does.

Evolution

Pidgeotto evolves from Pidgey at level 18 and evolves into Pidgeot at level 36.
