Obviously Spearow is not based on a sparrow (we already have Pidgey for that). But could it draw some influence from a chicken (particularly the male chicken, the cock/rooster) ?
- Spearows can be temperamental/aggressive in defending their territory. (Chickens can also be aggressive; rooster to rooster, hen to hen, or hen protecting a nest)
- It must flap its wings rapidly, and lacks the endurance to fly long, high, or far. (Chickens also fly for only short distances.)
- Spearow has a loud territorial cry.
- Spearow's wings (when folded) have a much more upturned angle than other bird Pokémon, and its evolution has a clear rooster-like comb.
