“A common sight in forests and woods. It flaps its wings at ground level to kick up blinding sand.”
The original flying Pokemon, one you kind of wished would stop showing up every time you set foot in tall grass. Making its first appearance in Kanto and the original Pokemon Red and Blue, Pidgey could be found just about everywhere; meanwhile, its evolutions didn’t tend to be quite so common. Pidgey is one of the most common Pokemon in the game, with an encounter rate of 33.3%.
“Very protective of its sprawling territorial area, this Pokemon will fiercely peck at any intruder.”
It may not look like much, but stick with Pidgey and it has the ability to evolve into the more impressive Pidgeot. Pidgey and its two evolutions are effective against the likes of Grass and Bug, but take significant damage when dealing with an incoming Ice, Electric or Rock-type attack.
Though traditionally considered a bit of a pain in the ass, Twitch Plays Pokemon treasured a Pidgey they somehow managed to level to disturbing strength. Lovingly named PidJesus, their savior, this Pidgey turned into a majestic Pidgeot and crushed many Pokemon in its path.
“When hunting, it skims the surface of water at high speeds to pick off unwary prey such as Magikarp.”
Pidgey evolves into Pidgeotto at level 18, before evolving into Pidgeot at level 36. While raised stats and more powerful moves are what some trainers will be excited for when finally seeing their Pidgeot, aesthetically, it finally dons a long, trailing coif that helps to make it look far more badass than the puny bird we started off our adventures with.
