Ash's Pidgeot


Pidgeot with Ash and Pikachu

Ash Ketchum had a Pidgeot that he had caught as a Pidgeotto early in his journey during Ash Catches A Pokémon. In Pallet Party Panic!, the same Spearow that Ash had thrown a rock at in the first episode had evolved into a Fearow and harasses the the flock of Pidgey and Pidgeotto. It attacked Ash, so Pidgeotto evolved into Pidgeot and battled against the Fearow, Pidgeot emerged victorious and Ash leaves it to look after the the flock in case Fearow returned. Ash had promised to someday return for it.
