Pidove (Japanese: マメパト Mamepato) is a dual-type Normal/Flying Pokémon introduced in Generation V.

It evolves into Tranquill starting at level 21, which evolves into Unfezant starting at level 32.

Biology

Pidove is a mainly gray, pigeon-like Pokémon. It has golden, oval eyes and a tuft of feathers atop its rounded head. It has a short, black beak with a bulbous pink cere, and a black patch on the nape of its neck. There is a wide, heart-shaped area of lighter coloration on its chest. Pidove's black wings have a thick gray stripe down the side. It has pink feet with black talons.

Pidove is not particularly intelligent. While it always listens to its Trainer's commands, it does not always understand them. Having no fear of people, flocks of Pidove are often found in city parks and plazas, though they can also be seen in grasslands and rural areas. The cooing of these flocks can be very noisy.
