Trivia
* In the anime, Pidgey is erroneously depicted with four talons on each foot, as opposed to three.
* Pidgey has the shortest [[cry]] of any Pokémon, being only 0.181 of a second long.
* In {{g|GO}}, Pidgey is one of the Pokémon that can be a [[Ditto]] in disguise. After being caught, it will reveal its true Ditto form. It is currently known that Ditto can also be disguised as [[Rattata]], [[Zubat]], [[Magikarp]], [[Hoothoot]], [[Sentret]], [[Yanma]] or [[Taillow]].
===Origin===
Anatomically, Pidgey resembles a {{wp|Cedar waxwing}} or {{wp|House sparrow}} more than it does a {{wp|Columbidae|pigeon}}. However, there have been some references to Pidgey Mail, alluding to {{wp|homing pigeon}}s. Its category, "tiny bird," added to the sound of the end of its name, could suggest that Pidgey is also based on a {{wp|chickadee}}. However, it and its evolutions seem to have more traits related to {{wp|osprey}}s than pigeons or chickadees.
