* Pidgey is the only Pokémon with a base stat total of 251.

* Pidgey was the first Pokémon to receive a [[Pokédex]] entry in the anime.
* Pidgey has the shortest [[cry]] of any Pokémon, being only 0.181 of a second long.
Anatomically, Pidgey resembles a {{wp|Cedarcedar waxwing}} or {{wp|Househouse 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 evolutionsevolved forms seem to have more traits related to {{wp|osprey}}s than pigeons or chickadees.
