Spearow (Japanese: オニスズメ Onisuzume) is a dual-type Normal/Flying Pokémon introduced in Generation I.

It evolves into Fearow starting at level 20.

Biology

Spearow is an avian Pokémon that is very small. It has rough, brown plumage on its head and three brown tail feathers. It has narrow, dark brown eyes with white pupils and a short, hooked beak that is light pink. The feathers covering its wings are pinkish-red with lighter tips, and it has a beige underside with two thin, horizontal stripes. Its light pink feet have two toes in front and one in the back. Black feathers cover its back.

Although inept at other aspects of its flying, such as height and distance, Spearow is still capable of flying quickly to protect its territory. However, it must flap its wings at high speeds to stay aloft. Spearow's loud shrieks can be heard over half a mile (one kilometer) away, and are used to warn other of its kind of danger. In the anime, Spearow is revealed to see in black and white and will chase its foes in a large flock. Spearow are found naturally in open habitats with warmer climates, mainly desolate wastelands and fields, where it hunts for insects. Ekans is a natural predator of Spearow.

Major appearances

Spearow (anime)

In Pokémon - I Choose You!, a large flock of Spearow attacked Ash after he hit one particular Spearow on the head with a rock to weaken it (because Pikachu refused to obey and battle), thinking it was a Pidgey. The flock of Spearow returned with the leader, the very same Spearow that Ash had hit in the first episode, as a Fearow in Pallet Party Panic!.

A similar flock appeared in I Choose You!, which is set in a different continuity; they served a similar role.

In The Lost Lapras, a Trainer ordered a Spearow to attack a Lapras.

According to Tracey, Spearow was vitamin-deficient.
