Hoothoot, the Owl Pokémon. Hoothoot stands on one leg, but uses both its powerful eyes to see clearly even through the darkest night.

Hoothoot is the bird Pokemon of Gen II. Despite of looking like just an owl, its head has a rather unique design. The sprite only has one foot, because it has a tendency to stand on only one foot at all times, and switch feet so quickly that it can’t be seen; although in the anime it’s been seen with both feet while flying. I omitted its foot in the wallpaper because it looks better without it.

Unlike the first normal birds of the other gens (Pidgey/Fearow/Taillow/Starly), Hoothoot and its evolution have higher Sp Attack than Attack. It can also learn many Psychic moves like Extrasensory.

The Togepi from the egg you get in HeartGold/SoulSilver has Extrasensory, so its father must’ve been either Hoothoot or Noctowl.

I like how its Japanese name is “hoho”.
