Pidgeot made its debut in the final round of the Pokémon Kanto Grand Festival, where it battled alongside Slowbro and together they easily overwhelmed May's Combusken and Munchlax. It showed it was brilliant battler when attacked by Combusken's Fire Spin, as it was easily able to recover and use a beautiful Feather Dance to destroy the flames and damage Combusken and Munchlax with flaming feathers. It then used Double Team to dodge Combusken's attacks and strike back. Finally it and Slowbro switched opponents and Pidgeot used Aerial Ace on Munchlax, despite the fact that it would have been more effective on Combusken, and knocked it out while Slowbro finished Combusken with Hyper Beam, winning Solidad the Ribbon Cup.
