#85 Dodrio

Dodrio, a three-headed Bird Pokémon that can run faster than it can fly. Its three heads represent joy, sorrow and anger.
– Ash’s Pokedex


Dodrio is one of Gen I’s trio Pokemon (the others being Dugtrio and Magneton). But unlike the other ones, Dodrio’s heads have unique expressions. The Pokedex entry says they represent “joy, sorry and anger”, but to me, it looks like two heads are angry and like to make commotion, while the third head is either bored or guilty-looking, and pretends it doesn’t know the other two heads, haha.

Dodrio is based on the ostrich, which cannot fly, but it’s part Flying type. I guess that’s probably because the Flying type was originally the “bird” type, and it’s a bird, and it retained the Flying type (and can learn Fly) despite not having any visible wings.

Stat-wise, it has good Speed and good Attack, and it learns Drill Peck by level-up, one of the better physical Flying moves.

  1. If I’m not wrong, Dodrio can jump so high that seems it is flying.

    Here one of my Gen V fav.: Durant. That ant is so awesome, and can be used to reach a attack higher than 1100 with Hustle and Hone Claw, not totally sure.

    1. haha, but its legs look so scrawny.

      I hated fighting against the Battle Subway boss’s Durant, it’s pretty fast, and its stupid Rock Slide somehow always make me flinch DX
