Biology

Physiology

Taillow has the tail of a swallow. Its stomach is mainly white, while up near the neck it begins to turn a red/pink. At the top of the end, there is a small triangle where the red/pink color ends and where it begins to turn blue. The blue looks like hair on the head. Its talons are a creamish color. It also has a blue tail.

In Pokemon GO, Taillow's neck and forehead became light red.

Evolution

Taillow evolves into Swellow once it reaches level 22.
