Delibird (デリバード) is the 190th Pokémon in the Johto Pokédex. It is an Ice/Flying-Type, and is known as the Delivery Pokémon.

Delibird can use one of two Abilities; Vital Spirit, which prevents it from being afflicted by the Sleep Status condition, or Hustle, which increases the damage of its Physical attacks by 50%, at the expense of lowering its moves' Accuracy to 80%. Its Hidden Ability is Insomnia, which, like Vital Spirit, prevents it from being put to sleep.

Delibird does not evolve and does not have a pre-evolved form.

Delibird is the Water 1 and Field Egg Groups, and its Egg takes approximately 5,120 steps to hatch. It takes Delibird 800,000 Experience Points to reach Level 100.
