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

Biology

Physiology

Delibird's body is covered with red and white feathers, making it look like Santa Claus's suit. The sack it carries is actually its tail.

Gender differences

None.

Special abilities

Delibird's most famous power is that it attacks by giving presents to its opponents. These presents, glowing orbs pulled from inside its tail, often explode, damaging the enemy. However, this move is unpredictable, even for the Delibird. The effect of the present could harm an opponent, or it could even help them!

Behavior

Delibird are often delivering items to either Pokémon or people. The deliveries are often from humans, but may be from Pokémon.

Habitat

Diet

Main article: Pokémon food

In the anime

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

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. This Delibird made one more appearance in Grating Spaces.

In the manga

In the TCG

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 the myths about Santa Claus.

Name origin

Delibird's name is a combination of delivery and bird.
