Dodrio (ドードリオ) is the 85th Pokémon in the Pokédex. It is a Normal/Flying-Type, and is known as the Triple Bird Pokémon.

Dodrio can use one of two Abilities; Run Away, which allows it to run from any Wild Pokémon battle unless it is trapped by a move or an Ability, or Early Bird, which allows it to awaken from the Sleep status in half the time it normally would. Its Hidden Ability is Tangled Feet, which raises its Evasion by one stage when the Pokémon is confused.

Doduo can evolve into Dodrio upon reaching Level 31.

Dodrio is in the Flying Egg Group, and its Egg takes approximately 5,120 steps to hatch. It takes Dodrio 1,000,000 Experience Points to reach Level 100.

I Red Uses its three brains to execute complex plans. While two heads sleep, one head is said to stay awake.
Blue Uses its three brains to execute complex plans. While two heads sleep, one head is said to stay awake.
Yellow One of Doduo's 2 heads splits to form a unique species. It runs close to 40 MPH in prairies.
II Gold It collects data and plans three times as wisely, but it may think too much and become immobilized.
