Biology

Physiology

The Red and Blue Artwork for Pidgeotto

Pidgeotto resembles a small hawk and is brightly colored with red and yellow feathers. Due to similarities between Pidgeotto and its evolved form, Pidgeot, many players often get the two confused. Its beak and claws are as sharp as its eyesight.

Natural abilities

Pidgeotto has outstanding vision as it is able to distinguish its prey from high distances. It is able to carry its prey for over 60 miles.

Behavior

Pidgeotto can be dangerous and should be approached with caution. This is due to its large size and aggressive territorial nature. It will attack anything with its sharp claws that wanders into its territory if it perceives the intruder as a threat, which it often does. Pidgeotto is known to be carnivorous as they are shown to prey on several Pokémon such as Exeggcute, Caterpie, and Magikarp.

Evolution

Pidgeotto evolves from Pidgey starting at level 18, and evolves into Pidgeot starting at level 36.

Trivia

Origin

Pidgeotto is based on a sparrow.

Etymology

Name origin

  • Japanese: ピジョン(Pijiyon in Romaji) means pigeon.
  • English: The name "Pidgeotto" is based upon the word "pigeon", a common bird.
  • French: The French name of Pidgeotto, "Roucoups", has the same origins as Pidgey for "rou" and "coups".
