Dodrio (Japanese: ドードリオ Dodorio) is a dual-type Normal/Flying Pokémon.

It evolves from Doduo starting at level 31.

Biology

Physiology

Dodrio resemble their pre-evolution, but are noticeably larger, have gained three large pink tail feathers, and has gained an extra head. Each of its heads now also sport a black 'V'-shaped crest, and their eyes are now triangular. Each of its heads have different facial expressions, as they each represent a different emotion; one for sadness, one for anger, and one for joy. Dodrio still has a rounded body, but its black underside is now exposed. However, they are still lacking wings.

Gender differences

A female Dodrio has brown necks, while a male has black ones.

Special abilities

Dodrio have long legs that allow it to jump incredibly high, which makes up for its lack of flight. These legs also allow it to run incredibly fast and for long distances without rest, as well as to deal massively powerful kicks to its opponents. Dodrio communicates with its other heads by mental telepathy, although not having any special psychic abilities. Another feature that contributes to its running ability are its three sets of hearts and lungs, which enable it to run long distances without rest. It can deliver devastating blows at any angle with its sharp beaks.

Behavior

Dodrio love to wake up early and call their cries every morning, and also love to run. They are usually very crotchety, arguing with themselves on a constant basis. However, if one of them gets to eat, the others will be satisfied too, and stop squabbling. Dodrio are especially wary if all three of its heads are looking in different directions.

Habitat

Dodrio can be found living in deserts and plains. Dodrio are native to Kanto, but they can be found on rare occasions in Sinnoh and Unova. They have also been imported to the Johto and Hoenn Safari Zones.

Pokédex entries

This Pokémon was unavailable prior to Generation I.
Generation I
Red Uses its three brains to execute complex plans. While two heads sleep, one head is said to stay awake.
Blue
Yellow One of Doduo's 2 heads splits to form a unique species. It runs close to 40 MPH in prairies.
Stadium The three heads express joy, sorrow and anger as they plan strategy together. When it sleeps, one head remains awake.
Generation II
Gold It collects data and plans three times as wisely, but it may think too much and become immobilized.
Silver If one of the heads gets to eat, the others will be satisfied, too, and they will stop squabbling.
Crystal An enemy that takes its eyes off any of the three heads--even for a second--will get pecked severely.
Stadium 2 It collects data and plans three times as wisely, but it may think too much and become immobilized.
Generation III
Ruby Watch out if Dodrio's three heads are looking in three separate directions. It's a sure sign that it is on its guard. Don't go near this Pokémon if it's being wary - it may decide to peck you.
Sapphire Apparently, the heads aren't the only parts of the body that Dodrio has three of. It has three sets of hearts and lungs as well, so it is capable of running long distances without rest.
Emerald A peculiar Pokémon species with three heads. It vigorously races across grassy plains even in arid seasons with little rainfall.
FireRed An odd species that is rarely found. The three heads respectively represent joy, sadness, and anger.
LeafGreen Uses its three brains to execute complex plans. While two heads sleep, one head is said to stay awake.

Trivia

Dodrio flying in Pokémon Stadium
  • While one of its heads is saying something in Pokémon Mystery Dungeon, the others say me too or mine too, but its pre-evolved form's other head will not.
  • Before Generation IV, the normal necks of Dodrio is the color of the female's (brown), while its pre-evolution's is based on the male's (black).
  • Dodrio's National Dex number is the whole number portion of its weight in kilograms. As of Generation V, this is a unique characteristic. However, Slowpoke and Scyther share the distinction when considering their respective weights in pounds.
  • Though Dodrio is based on a flightless bird, it is able to learn Fly.
  • Before Generation V, Dodrio learns Steel Wing via TM, despite not appearing to have wings.
  • Dodrio was the first Pokémon to appear in the flesh in the anime (all others before that were either dreamt of by Ash, or else shown on the TV in his room).
  • According to its Pokédex entries, Doduo can run at 60 mph, while Dodrio can only run at nearly 40 mph. However, Dodrio's base Speed stat is higher.
  • Dodrio is featured in the Generation III wireless mini-game, Dodrio Berry Picking, where it is required that players own a Dodrio to be able to play.

Origin

Despite its name, Dodrio seems like it has more in common with ostriches than dodos. It also seems to show some similarity to the Moa, an extinct flightless bird, and the Emu, another flightless bird. It also resembles the Kiwi in some ways as well. Its crests may mean it may have been based on cassowaries.

Name origin

Dodrio is a combination of dodo (an extinct, flightless bird) and trio (group of three).
