Pidgey (Japanese: ポッポ Poppo) is a Normal/Flying-type Pokémon introduced in Generation I.

Biology

Physiology

Oak's Pidgey

A Pidgey with Professor Oak.

Pidgey resembles a small, plump-bodied bird. It is brown in color, with a cream-colored throat and belly. The tips of its wings share th color. Both its feet and beak are a pinkish-gray color. Its plumage is fairly nondescript, particularly compared to its evolutions, Pidgeotto and Pidgeot. It has black markings around its eyes and a small crest of brown and cream feathers above its eyes. It resembles other small flying-type Pokémon, such as Starly, Taillow, and Spearow. However, due to the fact that these Pokémon tend to be unique to a region, with the exception of Spearow, it is likely that they are a result of convergent evolution. Pidgey's feet allow it to walk on the ground for a while, but can also reach out and safely land on perches.

Special abilities

When on the ground, Pidgey flaps its wings to kick up sand and dust that blinds its opponents. It has an excellent sense of direction and homing instincts. It can locate its nest even when far removed from familiar surroundings. These skills enable to be easily trained to deliver messages.

Evolution

Pidgey evolves into Pidgeotto at level 18, Then it evolves into Pidgeot at level 36.
