Doduo (Japanese: ドードー Dodo) is a dual-type Normal/Flying Pokémon.

It evolves into Dodrio at level 31.

Biology

Physiology

This avian has tiny wings and two heads. It cannot fly well, but it's Template:A2.

Gender differences

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

Special abilities

It can run at sixty miles per hour, and one head is always Template:A2.

Behavior

The heads of a Doduo appear to be quite keen with each other, they use a type of 'teamwork' to get things done and to survive. For example, while running, Doduo can be seen alternately rising and lowering their heads. They do this to balance themselves while running at extreme speeds. This Pokémon also appears to be quite cautious, the heads take turns sleeping while the other one watches for enemies.

Habitat

Doduo live in wide open plains, grasslands, and savannahs. They rarely live in forests but are sometimes found in scrublands and deserts.

Game data

Pokédex entries

This Pokémon was unavailable prior to Generation I.
Generation I
Red A bird that makes up for its poor flying with its fast foot speed. Leaves giant footprints.
Blue
Yellow Its short wings make flying difficult. Instead, this Pokémon runs at high speed on developed legs.
Stadium A Pokémon with two heads. More skilled at running than flying, it is capable of racing at speeds over 60 mph.
Generation II
Gold By alternately raising and lowering its two heads, it balances itself to be more stable while running.
Silver It races through grassy plains with powerful strides, leaving footprints up to four inches deep.
Crystal It lives on a grassy plain where it can see a long way. If it sees an enemy, it runs away at 60 mph.
Stadium 2 By alternately raising and lowering its two heads, it balances itself to be more stable while running.
Generation III
Ruby Doduo's two heads never sleep at the same time. Its two heads take turns sleeping, so one head can always keep watch for enemies while the other one sleeps.
Sapphire Doduo's two heads contain completely identical brains. A scientific study reported that on rare occasions, there will be examples of this Pokémon possessing different sets of brains.
Emerald Even while eating or sleeping, one of the heads remains always vigilant for any sign of danger. When threatened, it flees at over 60 miles per hour.

Trivia

  • Doduo's English name was originally going to be the same as the Japanese one, "Dodo".
  • In Pokémon Colosseum, when Doduo uses Fly, it runs in place while in midair, which seems to suggest that it hovers in midair using the momentum of running as opposed to achieving flight in the traditional sense.
  • Strangely, while one of its Template:P2 heads is saying something in the Pokémon Mystery Dungeon, the others say me too or mine too but its own head won't.
  • Doduo and Dodrio are the only Pokémon that receive the ability Run Away that aren't in the Ground Egg Group.
  • In Generation II, its shiny sprite was yellow, like a canary. It was changed to green in Generation III.
  • Before Generation IV, the normal necks of Doduo were black (the male), while its evolution's neck is the color of the female's.

Origin

Despite its name, it 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 bird in some ways as well. It is also very good at running, like the Chocobo of Final Fantasy fame.

Name origin

Doduo's name seems to be a combination of dodo, an extinct, flightless bird, and duo, meaning a pair. Its Japanese name is simply Dodo.
