Pidgey AG anime


Pidgey (ピッジィ, Pijī) is a dual Normal/Flying-type Tiny Bird Pokémon that is known to evolve into a Pidgeotto starting at level 18 than evolves into Pidgeot at level 36.


Voice actor: Katsuyuki Konishi (both English and Japanese)

Pidgey resembles a small, plump-bodied bird. It is a brown color, with a lighter colored throat and belly. The tips of its wings share this cream color. Both its feet and beak are a pinkish-gray color. Its plumage is nondescript, particularly compared to its evolutions Pidgeotto and Pidgeot. It has black markings around its eyes and a small crest of brown and cream feathers above its eyes. It resembles other small Flying-type Pokémon such as Spearow, Taillow, Starly, and Pidove. However, because (with the exception of Spearow) these Pokémon tend to be unique to a region, it is likely that they are a result of divergent evolution. Pidgey's feet allow it to walk on the ground for a while but can also reach out and safely land on perches. Its height is 1'00" and weight is 4.0 lbs.

Gender differencesEdit


Special abilitiesEdit

Pidgey has an extremely sharp sense of direction and homing instincts. It can locate its nest even when far removed from familiar surroundings. Because of this, it is extremely easy to train to deliver messages.


It is a docile Pokémon, and generally prefers to flee from its enemies rather than fight them. Pidgey's small size permits it to hide easily in long grass, where it is typically found foraging for small insects. It is known to flush out potential prey from long grass by flapping its wings rapidly. This maneuver also serves to protect Pidgey from enemies. If disturbed, a Pidgey is capable of creating a blinding cloud of dust, allowing it make its escape. This evasive technique can also be applied to battles.


Pidgey are very common and can be seen in a variety of environments. Pidgey typically dwell in forests with thick growth and large trees. Due to their environmental versatility and somewhat similar habitat needs, they can usually be found in the same places as Rattata. They are normally native to Kanto and Johto, although vagrants have appeared in Sinnoh and Unova from time to time.
