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

Biology

Physiology

Fearow is a large cormorant-like bird with a vulture-like neck. It has a large pointed beak and a red crown like line of spikes upon its head.

Gender differences

None.

Special abilities

They have large, strong beaks, giving them strong attacks such as Drill Peck and Fury Attack.

Behavior

Fearow builds its nest on highly elevated areas; they are commonly seen on the peaks of rock spires near canyons. Very tall trees can make a useful substitute for their nests. They are highly territorial and quick to anger, often attacking those who tread too near to their nests.

Habitat

Fearow naturally live in badlands consisting of rough terrain, such as desolate wastelands and fields.

Diet

Main article: Pokémon food Fearow are vicious predators and swoop down from above, grabbing their prey and taking it to their nests. They generally eat bugs and rodents, as they prefer to avoid any type of plant. Fearow also eat Pokémon food.

In the anime

Gary Oak has a Fearow that may or may not have been caught as a Spearow.

The Spearow who Ash attacked in the first episode evolved before Pallet Party Panic. Ash's Pidgeotto evolved to Pidgeot to defeat it.

A Fearow attacks a Pidgey in Carrying On and Fly Me to the Moon, Pichu in The Apple Corp and Team Rocket in Freeze Frame and The Big Balloon Blow-Up.

Team Rocket agent Tyson owns 2 Fearow.

Rico, the hunter of Ekans and Koffing owns a Fearow.

Paul attempts to capture a Fearow in A Maze-ing Race! By the end of the episode, it is unclear whether or not he succeeds.

In the manga

Ran has a pair of Fearow she used to attack Shuu in Pokémon Get da ze!

Ash had a Fearow he caught in the Electric Tale of Pikachu. It was his first capture, and he gave it the nickname, "Fearless," although it wasn't very obedient towards him.

In the Pokémon Special manga

Fearow debuts in the Red, Green & Blue chapter in ...But Fearow Itself! when a wild one kidnaps a mutated Bill. After being stopped by an Ice attack from Poliwhirl, Red catches it. Its most powerful move is Drill Peck.

Professor Oak also owns a Fearow that evolved from a Spearow.

Trivia

  • In Pokémon Diamond and Pearl, Fearow weighs as much as the male protagonist of the game.
  • Fearow's "mane" is at least 3x as large as it was at its debut.
  • Its RSE and FR/LG sprites are mirror images.

Origin

Its appearance may be vaguely based off of the cormorant, or even more closely to that of an anhinga.

Name origin

Fearow's name is a combination of the words fear and sparrow. Its Japanese name can be taken to mean 鬼ドリル, demon drill, although it is worth noting that the first four syllables can be taken to mean 鬼鳥 onidori, demon bird.

In other languages

  • German: Ibitak
  • French: Rapasdepic - Rapace means predatory and piquer can mean to swoop. Effectively translates as "swooping predator".
  • Korean: 깨비드릴조 Kkaebideuriljo
  • Chinese (Taiwan): 大嘴雀 Dài Zűi Qîao - Means "big-mouthed sparrow".
  • Chinese (Hong Kong): 魔雀 Mó Qîao - Means "monster sparrow".
