Pidgeot (Japanese: ピジョット Pigeot) is a dual-type Normal/Flying Pokémon.

It evolves from Pidgeotto starting at level 36. It is the final form of Pidgey.

Biology

Pidgeot is a large, avian Pokémon. Its glossy plumage is brown with a cream underbelly. On its head, there is a red and yellow crest that is nearly as long as its body. Its fan-like tail feathers are red. Its beak and legs are pink, and it has black markings around its eyes.

Its powerful wings are capable of stirring up windstorms in just a few flaps, and it may spread its wings to intimidate enemies. This Pokémon is capable of flying faster than the speed of sound. Its plumage is often described as beautiful, making it a popular choice for skilled Trainers. Pidgeot typically dwells in forests with thick growth and large trees. It is known to prey on Magikarp, which it can spot from great heights.

Major appearances

Ash's Pidgeot

Ash Ketchum had a Pidgeot that he captured as a Pidgeotto early in his journey during Ash Catches a Pokémon. In Pallet Party Panic!, the same Spearow Ash had thrown a rock at in the first episode returned with its flock, but it had evolved into a Fearow. The flock attacked Ash, so Pidgeotto evolved into Pidgeot to battle Fearow. After Pidgeot defeated Fearow, Pidgeot left Ash's party to watch over a local flock of Pidgey and Pidgeotto. Ash promised to return for it someday, but so far he has not kept that promise.

Trivia

  • Pidgeot originally had an extra "t" in its name, but it was dropped.
  • Pidgeot is depicted with red and yellow tail feathers in its official Generation I artwork, while the Generation III artwork depicts red ones only. This discrepancy is expressed in numerous ways in Pidgeot's in-game sprites and anime depictions.
  • When rebattling Gym Leaders in HeartGold and SoulSilver, both Falkner and Blue have a Pidgeot as their highest-leveled Pokémon.
    • Coincidentally, Falkner is the first Gym Leader while Blue is the last.
  • In the Pokémon Metal Taz, Pidgeot is mistakenly named Pidgeotto, the name of its pre-evolution.

Origin

Despite its name, its appearance and behavior do not resemble a pigeon so much as that of a bird of prey, particularly an eagle, osprey, or a falcon. In particular, its Shiny coloration resembles a Golden Eagle. Its eye markings strongly resemble the Sun/Sky gods of Egyptian mythology; Ra and Horus.

Name origin

Pidgeot and Pigeot are combinations of pigeon and jet (referring to its great speeds).
