Doduo (ドードー) is the 84th Pokémon in the Pokédex. It is a Normal/Flying-Type, and is known as the Twin Bird Pokémon.

Doduo 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.

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