Pidgeot (ピジョット) is the 18th Pokémon in the Pokédex. It is a Normal/Flying Type, and is known as the Bird Pokémon.

Pidgeot can use one of two Abilities: Keen Eye, which prevents its Accuracy from being lowered by opposing Pokémon; or Tangled Feet, which increases its Evasion by one level when it gets Confused. Its Hidden Ability is Big Pecks, which prevents opposing Pokémon from lowering its Defense.

Pidgey can evolve into Pidgeotto at Level 18, and can evolve into Pidgeot at Level 36. Starting in Omega Ruby and Alpha Sapphire, a Pidgeot that's holding a Pidgeotite can Mega Evolve into a Mega Pidgeot.

Pidgeot is in the Flying Egg Group, and its Egg takes approximately 3,840 Steps to hatch. It takes Pidgeot 1,059,860 Experience Points to reach Level 100.

Biology

Physiology

Pidgeot is a large beautiful bird Pokémon, whose design is based off birds of prey, mostly the eagle, falcon and osprey. It has sort of the same appearance as Pidgeotto, though its plumage seems to be large. It has a long yellow and red streamer-like crest that is almost longer than its body, which flows backwards. Pidgeot has four red tail feathers. Like its past two evolutions, its underbelly is cream and it has pink feet. It has black markings near both of its eyes. It has a sharp pink beak, which is small-ish. Pidgeot has a large wing-span, which it sometimes opens to make itself look big to scare its enemies.

Gender Differences

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

Anime/Manga Information

Anime

Ash's Pidgeotto would evolve into a Pidgeot during the episode Pallet Party Panic to take on a Fearow, which Ash had beaned with a rock when it was a Spearow in the pilot episode. Thanks to Pidgeot's leadership, it was able to successfully lead a flock of Pidgey and Pidgeotto in defeating the Spearow Flock that was led by said Fearow.

At the end of the episode Ash would leave Pidgeot with the flock of Pidgey and Pidgeotto to be their leader.

Falkner would use a Pidgeot in Fighting Flyer with Fire! The Gym Leader's Pidgeot would defeat Pikachu before being defeated by Charizard to win the Zephyr Badge.

Solidad also appears with her own Pidgeot in Channeling the Battle Zone, which was part of the team that defeated May's Combusken and Munchlax to win the Kanto Grand Festival.

Movies

A Trainer named Corey would appear with a Pidgeot in Mewtwo Strikes Back, which would get cloned by Mewtwo and make a subsequent appearance in Mewtwo Returns. In a flashback, Sir Aaron would use a Pidgeot in Lucario and the Mystery of Mew.

Wild Pidgeot make appearances in The Power of One, Giratina and the Sky Warrior, Arceus and the Jewel of Life and Zoroark: Master of Illusions, along with the Pikachu Shorts Pikachu's Vacation and Pikachu's Rescue Adventure.

Manga

Blue's Pidgeot makes his debut in Chapter 18. He uses his Pidgeot for delivering messages to Professor Oak, and would eventually leave him at Viridian Gym to accept the challenges of other trainers. This Pidgeot also appears in Chapters 31, 39, 44, 47, 49, 53, 55, 62, 161 and 287.

Pokémon Information

Competitive Battling

Pidgeot finds itself in the Never-Utilized Tier of Competitive Battling. There are other Flying-Type Pokémon that are faster and/or hit harder than Pidgeot. While it does have a respectable movepool, it doesn't have the offensive prowess to be effective, and the Status Attacks that it can learn aren't as effective as a user of the Prankster Ability.

Rock, Steel and Electric-Type Pokémon should have little problem defeating Pidgeot if it can survive Brave Bird. Steel-Type Pokémon should be wary of Heat Wave, however.
