Prof. Lotus' Notes: Despite the name inferring that it's part of a Pigeon line, the design is more akin to that of an Osprey (a bird of prey). This Pokémon's etymology is deeply routed in the original game. Pidgeotto is a portmanteau of Pigeon and Diciotto (Italian for 18), Pidgey's level requirement to evolve in the mainline games.
