Pidgey was featured prominently in the original cartoon, so many a Pokemon trainer kept one of these cuties on hand for their entire adventure. And why not? There are many solid moves to use here and its evolutions aren't too shabby either. When compared with Spearow, Pidgey has higher attack but lower special attack, a difference that may or may not affect your training decisions.

Evolution: To Pidgeotto at 18
