This is the second stage of evolution for Pidgey. Very protective of its sprawling territorial area, this Pokémon will fiercely peck at any intruder. Pidgeotto is Ash’s second capture. In “Ash Catches a Pokémon,” the hawk-like Pidgeotto loses its first battle with Team Rocket’s Ekans and Koffing, even with the electrifying Pikachu at its side. A last ditch effort by Ash’s new Caterpie saves the day.
