This Pokémon flies around, patrolling its large territory. If its living space is violated, it shows no mercy in thoroughly punishing the foe with its sharp claws.
(From Bulbapedia) Pidgeotto is a raptor-like avian Pokémon. It is covered with brown feathers, and has a cream-colored face, underside, and flight feathers. It has a crest of pinkish-red feathers on its head and black, angular markings behind its eyes. The plumage of its tail has alternating red and yellow feathers with ragged tips. Its beak and legs are pink. Two of its toes point forward, while one points backward. Additionally, it has powerful, sharp talons that it uses to grasp prey.
Pidgeotto is a powerful flier capable of carrying prey several miles to its nest. It has amazing vision, which helps it locate preferred prey Pokémon such as Exeggcute and Magikarp. The anime has also shown it preying on Caterpie. Pidgeotto claims a sprawling territory of more than 60 miles, which it defends fiercely. Its nest is usually in the center of its territory and it circles its territory throughout the day, looking out for food and intruders. It is most often found in forests. Gust and Feather Dance are its former signature moves.
(From Bulbapedia) Despite its name, its design appears to be less of a pigeon and more of an osprey or other bird of prey.
(From Bulbapedia) Pidgeotto may be a combination of the corruptions of pigeon and diciotto, which is Italian for 18, the level Pidgey evolves into Pidgeotto. Its name may also refer to Otto Lilienthal, a pioneer of unpowered heavier-than-air flight.
