Mega Pidgeot (メガピジョット), the Mega Evolution of Pidgeot activated by using Mega Stone, was revealed on October 10, 2014 after a leak of the November Edition of CoroCoro, alongside Mega Beedrill, Mega Latias and Mega Latios. It retains its Normal and Flying-typings.

Mega Pidgeot uses the No Guard Ability which brings the Accuracy of its attacks--and attacks targeting it--to 100%.

Pidgeot can Mega Evolve into Mega Pidgeot if it is holding a Pidgeotite.

Physiology

After undergoing Mega Evolution, Mega Pidgeot gains a considerable amount of size, including a larger head plume, which includes a red tuft on top. Mega Pidegot's wings and tail feathers now have blue tips as well.

Compared to Pidgeot, Mega Pidgeot is faster and boasts a much higher Special Attack.

Gender Differences

Mega Pidgeot doesn't have any visible differences to differentiate between male and female.

Pokémon Information

Competitive Batttling

Mega Pidgeot resides in the Borderline (BL) tier of competitive battling, meaning that it is banned from the Underused (UU) tier but not used enough to be a part of the Overused (OU) tier. Thanks to a high 121 base Speed and 100% accurate Hurricanes thanks to No Guard, Mega Pidgeot is a potent offensive threat. With U-turn and Hurricane's great chance of confusing foes, Mega Pidgeot can prove to be a Pokémon that wears down at teams while gaining momentum for the team. Mega Pidgeot can opt for an all-out attacker set that can be ruthless with strong attacks and can even use the normally unviable Hyper Beam to hammer Rotom-W, leaving open an opportunity for another Pokémon to sweep. It can also run a Work Up set that acts as a stallbreaker thanks to Refresh keeping Mega Pidgeot status free while Roost keeps it healthy. Mega Pidgeot's biggest flaw is that it has major competition in Tornadus-T, which has the same Speed tier, better coverage, the ability to hold a Life Orb, and Regenerator to keep itself from being worn down by Stealth Rock and Life Orb recoil. Mega Pidgeot also takes up a Mega slot and needs support to take care of Pokémon like Heatran and Tyranitar.
