Pidgey is a Flying Pokémon. Among all the Flying Pokémon, it is the gentlest and easiest to capture. A perfect target for the beginning Pokémon Trainer to test his Pokémon’s skills. Pidgey’s Gust power creates tornadoes. It also has a Sand-Attack.

Pidgey is a pretty tiny Pokemon, although it’s based on a sparrow (despite its name, it looks more like a sparrow than a pidgeon), it’s pretty big for a sparrow. Pidgey can learn Fly by HM, so a trainer can fly on a Pidgey. The thought of how that can work logically is quite funny.
It’s the first Normal/Flying bird in National order. Stat-wise, it has speed as the highest stat.
