Delibird (Japanese: デリバード Delibird) is a dual-type Ice/Flying Pokémon.

It is not known to evolve into or from any other Pokémon.

Biology

Delibird is a red, penguin-like Pokémon with a white, hollow tail. Its face and chest are covered in white feathers with two, three-pointed crests above its eyes. Black markings surround its circular eyes, and it has a light yellow beak and feet. There is a single white spot on its stomach. Its feet have two digits each.

Delibird carries food bundled up in its tail. It normally gives stored food to its chicks, but has been known to share its food with humans stranded on icy mountains. Delibird's signature move, Present, allows it to carry special items in its tail that may cause damage or heal its opponent. Delibird tends to live in mountainous regions, making its nests over sharp cliffs; one notable area of the world is around Mt. Everest.

In the anime

Delibird in the anime

Major appearances

Delibird first appeared in Delibird's Dilemma under the ownership of Santa Claus. Ash's Totodile shot a Delibird that was delivering presents clear out of the sky with a Water Gun-propelled snowball. Pikachu and co. had to help the Delivery Pokémon find the five presents before midnight.

Delibird (Team Rocket)

Delibird's first appearance in the main series was in Dues and Don'ts. It was owned by an elderly talent scout from Team Rocket. Since that episode, the Delivery Pokémon kept following Jessie, James and Meowth to collect money that the three of them owe. Fortunately for the Rocket Trio, Delibird was no longer able to tail them since the action moved to the Hoenn Region. Delibird has also appeared in Grating Spaces, The Thief That Keeps On Thieving, and Memories are Made of Bliss!.

Minor appearances

A Delibird also appeared in Battling the Generation Gap!.

Pokédex entries

Episode Pokémon Source Entry

This concludes the entries from the original series.

In the manga

Delibird in Pokémon Adventures

In the Pokémon Adventures manga

Delibird appears as one of the Pokémon used by Pryce. It is the most common Pokémon that have been used by Pryce. It appears to be the same Pokémon used by him in his alias, and was strong enough that it allowed him to capture Ho-Oh. However, Gold was able to knock it out with Polibo's Perish Song attack.

Trivia

Origin

Aspects of Delibird's appearance appear to come from the rockhopper penguin. However, its red and white color scheme, its ability to give presents, and the appearance of carrying its sack-like tail may have been derived from Santa Claus and the white stork. Delibird may have also been inspired by puffins, which are penguin-like birds that still have the ability to fly.

Name origin

Delibird is a combination of delivery and bird. Deli may have derived from the Adélie penguin. Pronouncing Delibird with the same inflection as delivered yields a very similar sound, with the "b" and "v" being the only variation between the two words.
