Now here's an interesting problem - Pidgeotto evolves at level 18, but its nearest competitor, Spearow, evolves at level 20 into Fearow, a Pokemon that's much higher in stats than Pidgeotto. Granted, the latter evolves again at level 36 into the comparable-in-strength Pidgeot, but what to do? Side with the fast leveler or stick with Pidgey to the end? Our money's always been with ol' Pidgey and Pidgeotto - it's just more fun to watch things evolve than peter out early on.

Evolution: From Pidgey at 18, to Pidgeot at 36
