Delibird, the Delivery Pokémon. Delibird’s most unique attack is giving presents, however, some of these presents have been known to explode. Sometimes, Delibird’s presents can actually restore energy to its opponents.
– Ash’s Pokedex


Delibird is quite unique in that it can learn only one move by level-up, its signature move Present, which can either damage the opponent, or heal it. The damage done is also variable.

Delibird is based on Santa Claus, with its red and white colouring, how its feathers in front look like a beard, and how it carries a bag of something. I wonder if that bag is part of the Pokemon. It’s not a held item that you can remove… Unlike other Pokemon depicted with items such as Farfetch’d and Cubone/Marowak, which can be given held items (Stick and the Thick Club) that boost stats, there aren’t any items that boost Delibird’s stats. According to its Pokedex entries though, the bag is actually its rolled-up tail that contains food.

Stat-wise, it doesn’t have very high stats. It has higher Sp Attack than Attack, despite the fact that Present, and a lot of the moves it can learn by TM, are physical moves. It can learn Ice Beam and Blizzard though, but it’s not a competitively usable Pokemon.
