Both Spearow and Fearow are avian Pokémon with scruffy, saturated brown feathers. However, the two evolutionary stages are vastly different in terms of physiology.

Spearow is small and stocky, with bright red wing feathers, black back feathers, and cream belly feathers. Their beaks are short and somewhat hooked, and their wings are small enough that Spearow must flap constantly to sty airborne, and can’t fly particularly high.

Fearow are much larger, and almost all brown, save for a patch of shaggy cream feathers on their backs and white tips to their flight feathers. In contrast to Spearow, their beaks are long and pointed, and their proportionally large wings allow them to soar on thermals and wind without flapping for long periods of time. Their talons are larger and more powerful, and their necks are longer and more slender as well. Their head sports one of their most distinguishing features – a bright red, fleshy comb.

In terms of attacks, they use a number of beak and wing-related battle moves. However, one attack has been of particular interest to Pokémon biologists – Mirror Move. This allows this species (and a few others) to replicate the last attack used against them flawlessly. Scientist studying the brains of these Pokémon have noticed the neurons of both the short-term memory and procedural memory sections of their brains fire at the same time when Mirror Move is used, but the exact nature of this skill is still being studied.

Spearow are notoriously versatile in terms of where they live. While they prefer thick brush and deep forest, they live pretty much anywhere – and aside from the above two locations, they also have an affinity for urban settings, where scavenged food and nesting places are easy to come by. They live at nearly any altitude - from sea level to high above.

Fearow often live with Spearow, and have similar ranges – however, their soaring capabilities allow them to wander much farther, and banded specimens have been found on islands far from their original homes.

Interestingly, despite being first-stage evolutions, Spearow often breed, although they don’t do it as much as the leaders of the flocks, Fearow. Fearow form mated pairs which lead the Spearow flock – if Spearow attempt to mate, or if one evolves into Fearow, they expel them/it from the flock (though the mated Spearow pairs tend to evolve soon after. Scientists have found this quite intresting, and are currently studying this, and since they often evolve just a few moths apart, they're studying whether one's evolution is delayed or the other's is accelerated).

Spearow live in flocks; these can vary in size from a few dozen individuals to flocks of hundreds that look like living clouds of Spearow in flight. Despite the species’ common status as a pest, these superflocks are regarded as quite beautiful by some. However, some predators – such as Staraptor and Salamence (as well as Braviary and Hydregion, in certain places where Spearow has been introduced) – view these flocks as flying buffets, and the Spearow must adopt defensive maneuvers to evade them.

The All Spearow line and Fearow have very keen eyesight, and are capable of reading an opponent's actions in detail- to the point excellent eyesight (the notion that they are colorblind is a blatant myth), but different individuals have different enhancements to this skill.

Fearow are also known for spinning when they attack with their beaks - allowing them to use attacks like Drill Peck or Drill Run.



Spearow may nest in any thick brush, but typically prefer deep forest areas, where they form large flocks led by Fearow.

Fearow generally remain with their flock after evolution, though they will often take advantage of their increased flight endurance to wander off for days to weeks at a time. These trips can take them to mountains, nearby islands, or any terrain with potential prey.

Primarily bugs and other insects; Fearow may occasionally hunt small mammals as well.

to:

Primarily bugs Both stages are opportunistic omnivores, though they’re slanted a little differently.

Spearow feeds on berries, nuts, seeds, and insects/Bug types (as well as scavenged food scraps in urban settings); it will also prey on the young (and eggs, if applicable) of other small Pokémon species. They’re known to flap their wings in grassy areas to stir up bugs.

Fearow are also omnivorous, but they have much more of a taste for meat – due to their long beaks, they prefer things they can “spear” and then swallow whole. They are very much near-top predators (themselves mostly only fearing larger birds of prey – like Skarmory, or Braviary in areas where their ranges overlap – and flying dragons [[MyFriendsAndZoidberg plus Charizard]]), and they have three main strategies for catching prey, depending on the type:

Fearow catch ground-dwelling Pokémon by soaring above them, locating the prey with their sharp eyesight, and then swooping down and grabbing them with their powerful talons.

For burrowing insects
and other insects; underground creatures, Fearow may occasionally hunt small mammals use their beaks as well.
probes – sticking them inside burrows or even the ground itself to catch food and pull it out.

For fish, Fearow perch on branches just above the water and nab passing aquatic Pokemon – though they must be careful, as large water predators like Feraligatr, Swampert, or freshwater-dwelling Gyarados are all too willing to be added to their list of predators.

Fearow are also willing to scavenge in urban areas.



Spearow are fiercely territorial, and will attack almost any intruder with little regard for their own safety.

In addition, most Spearow are part of large flocks, which will come to assist any provoked member and pursue intruders well beyond their territorial borders.

Fearow are less aggressive, so long as they are not provoked or nesting. While they will join the rest of their flock in chasing off intruders, they typically won't attack unless the intruder directly attacks members of the flock.

As such, any group of Spearow should be avoided, and solitary Spearow assumed to have backup. If you do anger a flock, run for cover unless you wish to fight off all members of a potentially thousand-bird flock.

Spearow encountered well outside a forest are typically outcasts or deliberately seeking challengers; if they don't call for backup, they may be safely engaged.

!! Courting / Childrearing

At six years of age, regardless of evolution stage, Spearow/Fearow become capable of reproduction. In the wild, they form breeding pairs of the same evolution stage, which generally stay together for life. (Interestingly, if one member of a Spearow pair evolves, its mate will almost always evolve within a month's time. It's unclear whether the first's evolution is delayed or the latter's accelerated.)

Each breeding pair maintains a common nest within the flock's territory. They produce one egg early each year (Fearow sometimes produce two), and alternate between guarding the nest and hunting for food. The chick lives within the nest after hatching until it has learned to hunt insects, at which point it moves out or is thrown out to make its own nest nearby.

tendency to eat crops, deposit fecal matter all over cities, and territorially attack humans, but because they have become invasive species in several regions. They are infamous for evicting less aggressive bird Pokémon like Swablu from their nests and roosting places, and population control programs – often involving getting local predators to develop a taste for them – have been enacted in Spearow-invaded areas, with varied success. Fearow have more of a reputation as a powerful, majestic birds of prey, but their association with their pre-evolutions has tainted this to the point where they still usually are regarded as villainous.
