#16: Pidgey - Normal Flying Type

[PokeDex Entry]



The Tiny Bird Pokémon

  • Alpha-sapphire: Pidgey has an extremely sharp sense of direction. It is capable of unerringly returning home to its nest, however far it may be removed from its familiar surroundings.

    Y: It is docile and prefers to avoid conflict. If disturbed, however, it can ferociously strike back.

    X: A common sight in forests and woods. It flaps its wings at ground level to kick up blinding sand.

    Prof. Lotus' Notes: Despite it's name being a portmanteau of Pigeon and Budgie, Pidgey doesn't exhibit any outward traits of a Pigeon. It's more like a sparrow or chickadee (this link is further solidified by Pidgey having the shortest cry in the game). The link to pigeons exists behavior (sense of direction), as Pidgey are used as messenger birds much like pigeons (anime ep.164 Carrying On, National Pidgey Mail Service in Johto (Goldenrod), Sinnoh (Jubilife City), Kanto (Saffron City), Hoenn (Lilycove City), and Unova (Castelia City)).
    Pidgey's natural predator is Ekans.
