PVE Offensive Moves Explanation

  • Wing Attack and Hurricane come together to make for Pidgeot's best moveset, but with the former being legacy, Air Slash is extremely close.
  • Aerial Ace is weaker than Hurricane, but it has the advantage of being three-bars, which is an advantage to something as frail as Pidgeot.
  • Steel Wing generally has no use, being inferior to Wing Attack and Air Slash even against neutral targets.
  • Brave Bird and Air Cutter are inferior flying-type attacks.

PVE Defensive Moves Explanation

  • Air Slash is the quick-move of choice on defense.
  • Steel Wing is good as well, as it's Pidgeot's only non-flying move and it hits Ice and Rock type counters for super-effective damage.
  • Wing Attack is an inferior defensive move.
  • Aerial Ace is the only charged move that Pidgeot should really be using on defense due to having 3 bars.
  • Air Cutter deserves special mention as a legacy move, but it's really just an all-around inferior choice.
  • Hurricane and Brave Bird are single-bar and shouldn't be used as Pidgeot is likely to faint before it can use them, but Hurricane is the superior choice between the two.

PVE Overview

The final evolution of what was arguably once the most common Pokemon in the game. And it's still extremely common despite having so many new Pokemon added to the pool! Pidgeot can serve new players well with some cheap, easily obtainable flying-type damage. While flying isn't the most useful type in Pokemon Go currently, evolving a high-level Pidgey can instantly net a new player a Pokemon worth using... for a while. Sadly, Pidgeot is quickly outclassed as a trainer gains even mediocre specialists, but it's definitely useful for getting over a hump. Just don't plan to spend much stardust on it....

In the future, Pidgeot can look forward to its own Mega Evolution, though when/if/how this is implemented remains to be seen.

PvP Moveset Explanation

Wing Attack+Brave Bird and Hurricane

Wing Attack works best on Pidgeot with 2.5 DPT (Damage per Turn) and 3.5 EPT (Energy Per Turn). Because it's a legacy move, note that Air Slash is a fine substitute with an even 3 DPT and 3 EPT.  Brave Bird (90 Power/55 Energy) is arguably Pidgeot's best charged move with fair damage for fair energy, while Hurricane (110 Power/65 Energy) provides a bit more kick for a bit more energy. Sadly, this is probably the best that Pidgeot can muster.

Steel Wing+Brave Bird and Hurricane

Steel Wing is another good attack in PVP with 3.5 DPT and 2.5 EPT. It also has the advantage of hitting a few of Pidgeot's counters for super effective damage. However, the loss in energy gain does make a large difference, making this a generally inferior choice.

PvP Rating Explanation

Great League: 1 / 5

Pidgeot has little to no use in the great league due to its barren movepool and less than perfect stat-distribution.It's countered by a lot, and its secondary Normal type keeps it from countering Fighting types, which is an important niche that it could have filled to some degree. It can help take out Grass or Bug types, but that's not a hard niche to fill with a better Pokemon.

Ultra League: 0 / 5

Pidgeot should never enter the Ultra League.

Master League: 0 / 5

Ever hear of killing two birds with one stone? Well, you can faint 3 Pidgeot in the Master League using 1 of just about anything viable in the tier.
