Taillow (Japanese: スバメ Subame) is a dual-type Normal/Flying Pokémon.

It evolves into Swellow starting at level 22.

Biology

Physiology

Taillow are small bird Pokémon with dark blue feathers with patches of red on their chest and forehead, the patch on their forehead having a triangular upper tip. Their wings have wingtips that are elongated, thus making the wings seem configured for speed and maneuverability. The underside of the wings also have white coloration. Taillow possesses two sharp tail feathers. Their yellow beak is somewhat short, but wide, and their black feet have yellow nails.

Gender differences

None.

Special abilities

Taillow have fantastic speed and aerial abilities. In addition to this, they become even more aggressive if they are attacked. When migrating in search of warm climates, it may fly over 180 miles per day.

Behavior

Much like other small bird Pokémon like Pidgey, Spearow, and Starly, they congregate in big flocks looking for food to eat. Unlike the more docile Pidgey, they are very brave for such small Pokémon, and will even stand up to much larger Pokémon such as the considerably larger and more powerful Skarmory as revealed in the Emerald Pokédex entry. Despite this, they sometimes become lonely and cry at night. They tend to balk when they are hungry and they dislike cold climates, so they tend to migrate to look for food and warm weather.

Habitat

Taillow prefer to live in grassy fields or light wooded areas, but they can sometimes be found in anywhere from more heavily wooded areas, to urban environments, to mountainous or rocky areas. In short, they are very versatile.

Diet

Main article: Pokémon food

As its Pokédex entry implies, it hunts for Wurmple. They may also have a taste for fruit and Berries. Additionally, Taillow appear to be agricultural pests, eating considerable amounts of crops in a flock as evidenced by the episode We're No Angels.

Other

Team Rocket helped Professor Brown to stop a flock of Taillow from attacking the crops of a village in which the residents thought that the Rocket Trio were superheroes in We're No Angels.

Ritchie's Taillow, nicknamed "Rose", made an appearance in Oaknapped.

Minor appearances
