Pidgeotto (Japanese: ピジョン Pigeon) is a dual-type Normal/Flying Pokémon.

It evolves from Pidgey starting at level 18 and evolves into Pidgeot starting at level 36.

Biology

Pidgeotto is a large, brown raptor-like avian Pokémon. It is covered with brown feathers, and has a cream-colored face and underside. It has a crest of pink feathers on its head and black streaks behind its eyes. The plumage of its tail alternates between red and yellow. It has powerful, pinkish-gray talons, which it uses to grasp prey.

Pidgeotto is a powerful flier capable of carrying prey several miles to its nest. Pidgeotto has an amazing vision that it using to locate prey on Pokémon such as Exeggcute and Magikarp. The anime has also shown it preying on Caterpie. Pidgeotto claims a sprawling territory of more than 60 miles, which it defends fiercely. Its nest is usually in the center of its territory and it circles its territory throughout the day, looking out for prey and intruders. It is most often found in forests.
