Hoothoot, the Owl Pokémon, is the first stage in the evolutionary chain of the Generation II Normal/Flying type, Noctowl. It is the twelfth Pokémon in the Johto Pokédex.

Hoothoot has two abilities. The first is Insomnia. This means that Hoothoot is unable to be put to Sleep. The second ability is Keen Eye. Inside of battle, this means that Hoothoot's accuracy can't be lowered. Outside of battle, this lowers the chance of running into lower leveled wild Pokémon by 50%


At level 20 Hoothoot has the option to evolve into Noctowl.

Hoothoot is in the egg group Flying, and will hatch after 4,080 steps. It will take a Hoothoot 1,000,000 experience to reach level 100.
