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.
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.
Pidgeot doesn't have any differences to differentiate between male and female.
The only way to obtain a Pidgeot is to evolve a Pidgeotto, which is consistent across all of its game appearnaces.
Pidgeot makes appearances at Endless Levels 51 & 72, Forever Level 1 and Mr. Who's Den in Pokémon Trozei!.
The only way to obtain a Pidgeot in the first set of Mystery Dungeon games is to evolve a Pidgeotto. In Explorers of Time, Explorers of Darkness and Explorers of Sky, Pidgeot can be found at Concealed Ruins B21-B29 and World Abyss B21-B27. Pidgeot is exclusive to Light Adventure Squad in Mystery Dungeon 3, appearing on the Path to Treasure Island B20-B24.
Pidgeot can be found flying the skies of the Oblivia Region in Pokémon Ranger: Guardian Signs in the Present, and can be obtained in the Forest Temple mission "A Pokémon Forest in the Way" in the Past by defeating it and obtaining its Slate.
Pidgeot can be found at Challengers' Ground Meadow 1-4 in Pokémon Rumble Blast after completing the game.
Trading Card Game
Pidgeot is listed in eight sets, the Southern Islands Collection, Pokémon Organized Play Series 2 as a Rare Card and the 8th Movie Halfdeck. Pidgeot is listed as a Common Card in the Versus set, and as a Rare Card in the Jungle (2), Expedition (2), EX FireRed and LeafGreen, EX Holon Phantoms (Delta Species Card), Secret Wonders, Triumphant, and Call of Legends sets.
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.
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.
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.
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.
