In the anime
Natu is a tiny, mostly green bird Pokémon with a nearly spherical body, and accents of red, yellow and black. It possesses brightly colored, yellow-and-red wings with thick black stripes. The wings are small and not fully-grown, thus making it unable to fly. However, it can hop and climb tree trunks. Natu has a red crest on the top of its head, and its three-toed feet and three tail feathers are red as well. Natu also has almond-shaped eyes and a yellow beak.
 
Natu is believed to bereside native toin {{wp|South America}}, although it can be found near ruins and {{DL|List of Pokémon by habitat|Forest Pokémon|in forests}} in other areas of the world. Natu usually forages for food on the ground. However, on rare occasions, it will hop onto branches to peck at the tree's new shoots. It also picks food from cactus plants, easily avoiding the buds and spines. Due to its prophetic abilities, Natu is a very cautious Pokémon that is easily spooked. It has the quirky behavior of staring at something until the thing moves.

[[File:Crystal Natee Natu.png|thumb|125px|Natu in [[Pokémon Adventures]]]]
===In the Pokémon Adventures manga===
{{adv|Crystal}} owns a female Natu, which she first appeared in ''[[PS117|Slugging It Out With Slugma]]'',. whoseHer Psychic attacks allow her to hold her own despite her size. Crystal also uses Natu to provide flight transport over short distances. In ''[[PS135|Lively Larvitar]]'', the origin of Crystal's Natu is revealed: she, along with Crystal's {{p|Parasect}}, [[Monlee|Hitmonchan]], and [[Bonee|Cubone]], were wild Pokémon living in [[Mt. Mortar]] and had fought with a local {{p|Arcanine}} that had gone berserk from a severe eye injury. afterAfter the ordeal, Natu used her telepathy to detect if enemies were in the area. Sometime between the {{chap|Gold, Silver & Crystal}} and {{chap|Emerald}} arcs, she evolved into a {{p|Xatu}}, and with herthat came increased speed and flight stamina, though she isn't seen battling much.
 
In ''[[PS268|The Escape]]'', [[Will]] is seen to have a Natu during {{adv|Silver}}'s flashback of his escape from the [[Masked Man]],. It is probably a pre-evolution of the Xatu he used many volumes earlier.
 
The {{gdis|Battle FactoryTower|III}} rented a Natu, which was stolen by [[Guile Hideout]] in ''[[PS334|The Final Battle VII]]''.
