They eat insects in grassy areas by flushing them out with their stubby wings, and plucking at them with their beaks. Spearow are very territorial, constantly buzzing about and calling with a loud cry that can be heard from half a mile away. This cry serves to scare away predators and to keep in touch with other Spearow, though the latter is reserved as an alarm to its kind.

PhysiologyEdit

Spearow attacking Pikachu in the Anime.

In the very first episode of the animated series (Pokémon, I Choose You!), series protagonist Ash Ketchum attempts to capture a Spearow right outside his hometown, Pallet Town, without his Pikachu's help; he only angers the Pokémon by hurling a pebble at it. Spearow calls out to its large flock, which pursue Ash and Pikachu. Pikachu eventually disperses the flock with massive Thunder, upon witnessing Ash's willingness to sacrifice his safety for Pikachu's.[50] Ash must deal with the flock once more when he returns to Pallet Town, and realizes the Fearow leading the flock had been the Spearow he tried to catch.[51] The flock reappeared in a flashback to that episode Ash had in Lucario and the Mystery of Mew.

MangaEdit

Professor Oak had a Spearow in the Pokémon Adventures manga. He used it against Green in their Pokémon League battle. It later evolved into Fearow.

TriviaEdit

Origins Edit

Instead of looking like a sparrow, like its name suggests, it appears to be based more on a falcon.

Names in other languagesEdit

  • English: "Spearow" comes from "S-pear" and "Spar-row."
  • Japanese: オニスズメ (onisuzume in Romaji) from the Japanese words Oni (鬼) and Suzume (雀) which means sparrow.
