[edit] Anime/Manga Information

[edit] Anime

Spearow made its first appearance in the pilot episode, when Ash dubiously hit one in the head with a rock. This enraged the Spearow, who went on the attack, first Ash, then Pikachu, who had been up in a tree branch minding its business. Pikachu fended it off with a Thundershock, but the Spearow called for its flock, which nearly finished Ash & Pikachu off, only for Pikachu to repulse the flock with a massive Thundershock.

The majority of Spearow's appearances are in the wild, and several of those involve the Pokémon attacking either another Pokémon, a human, or both.
