Spearow (Japanese: オニスズメ Onisuzume) is a dual-type Normal/Flying Pokémon.

It evolves into Fearow starting at level 20.

Biology

Spearow is an avian Pokémon that is very small. It has rough, brown plumage on its head and three brown tail feathers. It has narrow, dark brown eyes with white pupils and a short, hooked beak. The feathers covering its wings are pinkish red with lighter tips, and it has a beige underside with two thin, horizontal stripes. Its light pink feet have two toes in front and one in the back. Black feathers cover its back.

Although inept at other aspects of its flying, such as height and distance, Spearow is still capable of flying quickly to protect its territory. However, it must flap its wings at high speeds to stay aloft. Spearow's loud shrieks can be heard over half a mile (one kilometer) away, and are used to warn other of its kind of danger. The anime has shown that Spearow sees in black and white and will chase its foes in a large flock. Spearow is usually found in desolate wastelands and fields, where it hunts for insects.

The flock reappeared in flashbacks in Pokémon Emergency!, Challenge of the Samurai, Pikachu's Goodbye, Historical Mystery Tour!, Lucario and the Mystery of Mew and The Fires of a Red-Hot Reunion!.

Pokédex entries

Professor Oak had a Spearow in Just a Spearow Carrier. It was powerful enough to take down even a powerful Blastoise with its Mirror Move.

It appeared again in Number One Donphan beside Oak while he was talking to Elm via PC. It later evolved into a Fearow prior to the FireRed & LeafGreen chapter.
