Natu (Japanese: ネイティ Naty) is a dual-type Psychic/Flying Pokémon.

It evolves into Xatu starting at level 25.

Biology

Physiology

Natu is a tiny, mostly green bird Pokémon with a nearly spherical body, and with accentuations of red, yellow and black along with its main coloration. It possesses brightly colored, yellow-and-red wings with thick black stripes. The wings are small and not fully-grown, thus making it unable to fly. Natu has a red crest on the top of its head, and its three-toed feet and three tail feathers are also red. Natu also has almond-shaped eyes and a yellow beak.

Gender differences

None.

Special abilities

Like many Psychic-type Pokémon, it possesses psychic abilities. It is also quite skilled at climbing tree trunks and hopping.

Behavior

Due to its prophetic abilities, it is a very cautious Pokémon that is easily spooked. It has the quirky behavior of staring at something until the thing moves.

Habitat

Natu are believed to be native to South America, although they can be found near ruins in Johto and the Sevii Islands, and they have also been spotted in Sinnoh. They have also been imported to the Hoenn Safari Zone.

Diet

Main article: Pokémon food

It usually forages for food on the ground but may, on rare occasions, hop onto branches to peck at the tree's new shoots. It also picks food from cactus plants, easily avoiding the buds and spines.

Pokédex entries

Episode Pokémon Source Entry

This concludes the entries from the original series.
Episode Pokémon Source Entry
DP140 Natu Dawn's Pokédex Natu, the Little Bird Pokémon. Natu evolves into Xatu and skillfully picks food from cactus plants, avoiding bugs and spines. It appears to skip about to move.

In the manga

Crystal's Natu, Natee

In the Pokémon Adventures manga

Crystal owns a Natu, whose Psychic attacks allow it to hold its own despite its size. Crystal also uses Natu to provide flight transport over short distances. Sometime between the GSC and Emerald arcs, it evolved into a Xatu, and with it came increased speed and flight stamina, though it isn't seen battling much.

In Volume 22, Will is seen to have a Natu during Silver's flashback of his escape from the Masked Man, probably a pre-evolution of the Xatu he used many volumes earlier.

In the Pokémon Pocket Monsters manga

Natu is Falkner's only known Pokémon. During his Gym battle with Red in PM070, he sends it out to have a battle with Clefairy.

Silver It usually forages for food on the ground but may, on rare occasions, hop onto branches to peck at shoots.
Crystal It is extremely good at climbing tree trunks and likes to eat the new sprouts on the trees.
Stadium 2 Because its wings aren't yet fully grown, it has to hop to get around. It is always staring at something.

Ruby Natu cannot fly because its wings are not yet fully grown. If your eyes meet with this Pokémon's eyes, it will stare back intently at you. But if you move even slightly, it will hop away to safety.
Sapphire Natu has a highly developed jumping ability. The Pokémon flaps and leaps onto tree branches that are taller than grown-up people to pick at the tree's new shoots.
Emerald It runs up short trees that grow on the savanna to peck at new shoots. A Natu's eyes look as if they are always observing something.

Trivia

  • Natu had its species name changed within a generation (albeit only slightly). In Gold and Silver, its species was given as Littlebird, while Crystal added a space, changing it to Little Bird. Later games then changed its species name to Tiny Bird.

Origin

Natu appears to be based on a parrot. It also resembles a quail.

Name origin

Natu may be derived from native and Atu (the first man of Samoan mythology). Natu is also Latin for birth.

Naty may be a shortening of native.
