Doduo (Japanese: ドードー Dodo) is a dual-type Normal/Flying Pokémon.

It evolves into Dodrio starting at level 31.

Biology

Physiology

Doduo is a two-headed bird-like Pokémon that resembles a cross between ostrich and a kiwi. It has a rounded body covered in brown feathers which have a fluffy appearance and it has two long, thin, tan legs with four clawed toes. It has two round heads are also covered in brown fluffy feathers, each with two small, black eyes with white irises and long sharp beaks. Both its heads are connected to its body by long, flexible tube-like necks, which are brown or black, depending on its gender.

Gender differences

A female has brown necks, while a male has black ones.

Special abilities

It can run at sixty miles per hour (100 kilometers per hour), and one head is always awake and alert. Despite having two heads, it cannot learn Double Hit.

Behavior

The heads of a Doduo appear to be quite keen with each other; they use a type of 'teamwork' to get things done and to survive. For example, while running, Doduo can be seen alternately rising and lowering their heads. They do this to balance themselves while running at extreme speeds. This Pokémon also appears to be quite cautious, the heads take turns sleeping while the other one watches for enemies.

Habitat

Doduo live in wide open plains, grasslands, and savannahs. They rarely live in forests but are sometimes found in scrublands and deserts. They are common in Kanto, but have been seen in Sinnoh from time to time. They have also been imported to the Johto and Hoenn Safari Zones.

Trivia

050Diglett.png This section is incomplete.
Please feel free to edit this section to add missing information and complete it.
Reason: needs image of Doduo 'flying' in Stadium, Colo/XD or Battle Rev.
  • In the Pokémon Red and Blue beta, Doduo was originally known as "Dodo", its Japanese name.
  • Even though Doduo is based on the dodo, a flightless bird, and is also said to have poor flying skills, it can still learn the move Fly. It shares a similar trait with Qwilfish, who can learn Surf despite being called a poor swimmer.
    • Doduo can also learn Steel Wing, despite not having any visible wings.
    • It has been mentioned in the anime that Doduo can jump high enough to stay in the air for a period of time, as Fly is shown in-game. However, despite this, Doduo cannot learn Bounce.
  • Before Generation IV, the normal necks of Doduo were black (the male), while its evolution's neck is the color of the female's.
  • Even though it is the pre-evolved form of Dodrio, the Pokedex entries state on more than one occasion that it can run at about 60 mph, at most 20 mph faster than its evolved form.

Origin

Despite its name, it seems like it has more in common with ostriches than dodos. It also seems to show some similarity to the moa, an extinct flightless bird indigenous to New Zealand, and the emu, another flightless bird. It also resembles the kiwi in some ways as well.

Name origin

Doduo's name seems to be a combination of dodo, an extinct, flightless bird, and duo, meaning a pair. Its Japanese name is simply Dodo.

In other languages

Language Name Name Origin
German Dodu
French Doduo
Korean 두두 Dudu
Chinese (Mandarin) 嘟嘟 Dūdū Transliteration of its Japanese name. 嘟嘟鳥 Dūdū-niǎo is also a name for the dodo bird.
Chinese (Cantonese) 多多 Dōdō Transliteration of its Japanese name. Literally "Many".
