Trivia

  • In the Pokémon Red and Blue beta, Pidgey was originally going to be named Pidge.
  • Pidgey shares its category with Spearow, Natu, and Rookidee. They are all known as the Tiny Bird Pokémon, though Natu has also been called the Little Bird Pokémon.
  • Pidgey is the only Pokémon with a base stat total of 251.
  • In the anime, Pidgey is erroneously depicted with four talons on each foot, as opposed to three.
  • Pidgey has the shortest cry of any Pokémon, being only 0.181 of a second long.

Origin

Despite its name, Pidgey more closely resembles a sparrow, a cedar waxwing, or a Carolina wren than a pigeon. However, there have been some references to Pidgey Mail, alluding to homing pigeons. Its category, "tiny bird", added to the sound of the end of its name, could suggest that Pidgey is also based on a chickadee. However, it and its evolved forms seem to have more traits related to ospreys than pigeons or chickadees.

Name origin

Pidgey may be a corruption of pigeon or a combination of budgie (a type of bird), chickadee (a type of bird), or pudgy (referring to its plump physique).

Poppo may be derived from the onomatopoeia of the sound a pigeon makes: ポッポッポ poppoppo.
