Spearow (pronunciation: SPEER-oh) is a small Normal/Flying-type bird Pokémon.

Biology[edit | edit source]

Appearance[edit | edit source]

Spearow are mostly brown, with slightly pinkish red wings. Its shoulders are black, but rarely visible due to its plumage. Spearow have a brown underbelly and noticeably large feet and talons. The feathers on its head are somewhat ruffled, giving Spearow what looks like a "spiky head." Its tail feathers and head plumage are both a dark shade of brown.

Behavior[edit | edit source]

They eat insects in grassy areas by flushing them out with their stubby wings, and plucking at them with their beaks. Spearow are very territorial, constantly buzzing about and calling with a loud cry that can be heard from half a mile away. This cry serves to scare away predators and to keep in touch with other Spearow, though the latter is reserved as an alarm to its kind.

Special Abilities[edit | edit source]

They are noted for being frail, for which they make up for with their "Mirror Move" ability.

Evolution[edit | edit source]

Spearow evolves into Fearow at level 20.

Appearances[edit | edit source]

Spearow attacking Pikachu in the Anime

In the anime[edit | edit source]

In the very first episode of the animated series (Pokémon, I Choose You!), series protagonist Ash Ketchum attempts to capture a Spearow right outside his hometown, Pallet Town, without his Pikachu's help; he only angers the Pokémon by hurling a pebble at it. Spearow calls out to its large flock, which pursue Ash and Pikachu. Pikachu eventually disperses the flock with massive Thunder, upon witnessing Ash's willingness to sacrifice his safety for Pikachu's.[50] Ash must deal with the flock once more when he returns to Pallet Town, and realizes the Fearow leading the flock had been the Spearow he tried to catch.[51] The flock reappeared in a flashback to that episode Ash had in Lucario and the Mystery of Mew.

In the manga[edit | edit source]

Professor Oak had a Spearow in the Pokémon Adventures manga. He used it against Green in their Pokémon League battle. It later evolved into Fearow.

Origins[edit | edit source]

Instead of looking like a sparrow, like its name suggests, it appears to be based more on a falcon.

Name origin[edit | edit source]

Its name is a combination of the words "spear" and "sparrow."

Trivia[edit | edit source]

  • In the episode "Pokémon - I Choose You!" the Pokédex mistakenly states that Spearow is a more violent evolution of Pidgey.
