Biology

Physiology

Pidove appears to be a small, gray pigeon with elliptical yellow eyes. It has two wide black stripes on both of its wings. It has a light gray belly, the lighter patch shaped like a heart. It has a tuft of three feathers atop its head.

Behavior

Pidove are usually forgetful and unresponsive, but they are also loyal, smart, and love to be with humans. Pidove are not able to understand complex instructions during their training, and may soon forget the instructions the trainer just issued, and will stay in the place waiting for a new command. The impressive thing about Pidove is that they are usually obeying the trainers' instruction, as long as they understand it, and will deftly to complete. Pidove like humans and they often appear in places with a lot of humans to gather together and fly freely, which makes them good partners of humans.

Evolution

Pidove evolves into Tranquill at level 21 and then into Unfezant at level 32.

Anime

Ash had a female Pidove. She evolved into a Tranquill later on in the anime when he help remove the Venipede from Castelia City. Then she evolved into an Unfezant during Ash's battle with Skyla and helped him won the gym badge.

Trivia

  • Pidove appears to be of the same value as Kanto's Pidgey, Johto's Hoothoot, Hoenn's Taillow, Sinnoh's Starly and Kalos' Fletchling.
  • This Pokémon was revealed along with six other Pokémon in July's issue of CoroCoro on June 11, 2010, as was among the first "regular" Pokémon revealed.
  • This is the first time that a Normal/Flying type Pokémon does not appear until after the first badge is earned.
  • Pidove's shiny form is likely based on the coloration of the diamond dove while its normal form is based on the sooty colors of a city-dwelling dove or pigeon.
  • Pidove, like Pikachu, has two broad stripes running horizontally across its back.

Origin

Pidove is based on a pigeon.

Etymology

Pidove's comes from the English words "pigeon" and "dove", both of which are very similar birds.

Its Japanese name may be a combination of 忠実 mame, diligent, and ハト hato, pigeon.
