Fearow (Japanese: オニドリル Onidrill) is a dual-type Normal/Flying Pokémon.

It evolves from Spearow starting at level 20.

Biology

Fearow is a large, mostly brown avian Pokémon with a vulturine neck and broad, powerful wings. It has a long, pointed, pink beak, and a decorative red coxcomb on top of its head. Its narrow eyes have very small pupils, and do not appear to have colored irises. It has shaggy, feathers on the base of its neck and covering the upper portion of its wings. These feathers are cream-colored, as are the tips of its flight feathers. Its sharp-clawed talons are pink, with three toes pointing forward and one pointing backward.

Fearow's large wings and stamina allow it to fly for an entire day without landing. It will shoot upward, and then dive down to catch prey. Its long neck and beak allow it to pluck prey from both land and water, and it will even catch tiny insects that hide underground. Fearow are found in wastelands and desolate fields.

Pokédex entries

Episode Pokémon Source Entry
EP081 Fearow Ash's Pokédex Fearow, the Beak Pokémon. The evolved form of Spearow. Its large, powerful wings allow it to fly for an entire day. The crushing power of its beak is tremendous.
This concludes the entries from the original series.

In the manga

Fearow in The Electric Tale of Pikachu

In The Electric Tale of Pikachu manga

Main article: Ash's Fearow

Ash owns a Fearow in the manga The Electric Tale of Pikachu. It is one of the few Pokémon that Ash owns in the manga but not in the anime. It was given the nickname "Fearless" in Play Misty For Me.

Ash captured Fearow in the first chapter, Pikachu, I See You!. It was his first capture (besides Pikachu, who was not technically captured in a Poké Ball in the manga). Ash sometimes has trouble getting Fearow to obey him.

In the Pokémon Adventures manga

Fearow debuts in the Red, Green & Blue chapter in ...But Fearow Itself! when a wild one kidnaps a mutated Bill. It was a tough old bird, able to swiftly dodge Pika's Thunder Wave and Poli's Ice Beam (humorously causing Bill to get hit with the attacks), and even survived a Thunder from the former, after which it uses Drill Peck. Poli, however, was narrowly able to counter the move by using Double Team and landed a powerful Ice attack to incapacitate it at last. Red catches it afterwards, much to the shock of Bill.

Professor Oak also owns a Fearow that evolved from his surprisingly formidable Spearow sometime prior to the FireRed & LeafGreen chapter.

In the Pokémon Gotta Catch 'Em All manga

Ran has a pair of Fearow she used to attack Shū in Pokémon Gotta Catch 'Em All

Trivia

Origin

Fearow doesn't seem to be directly based on any particular bird species, instead taking inspiration from many soaring, predatory birds. It has traits similar to raptors such as hawks and vultures, as well as similarities with storks. Its physical appearance may be vaguely based on a cormorant or an anhinga, despite the fact that they are water birds. It also shares characteristics with chickens and snipe, most notably its comb and long beak, respectively. Its coloration and size also resembles the Goliath Heron, whose feathers when ruffled look superficially like a cockscomb.

Name origin

Fearow is a combination of fear and sparrow or arrow. It may also derive from feather.

Onidrill is a combination of 鬼 oni (demon) and drill, although it is worth noting that the first four syllables can be taken to mean 鬼鳥 onidori (demon bird).
