which was your favorite of ashs bird pokemon in each generation?


I find it hard to choose between swellow and staraptor. But i also found it sad the episode ash FINALY got his pigeotto to evolve just so he could part with it =/

cant figure out how to make this a poll, still kinda new ya see. either way discuss.

noctowl, of course. its shiny, and the episode it appeared in was epic.

July 29th, 2010, 3:31 PM
i cant remember the episode noctowl was found but i did find noctowl to be usefull for them against ghosts with its forsight.

Pidgeot definitely. Dude he was a beast. Shame he left though. Stupid weak pidgies >_>

I would have to say Staraptor.
I don't know why.

July 29th, 2010, 4:43 PM
staraptor is the best sweeper of the 4 of them =P

max its attack and speed.

give it moves:

brave bird (granted =P )
close combat (for rock and ice weakness)
giga impact (what electric types have high def? lol)
u-turn (for urgent switch outs while still dealing damage =P)

staraptor is a pidgeot wannabe. I bet if I was battling someone with a pidgeot i could beat their staraptor. Pidgeot ftw

I'll go with Swellow and Staraptor, but before any of you die-hard gen 1 and 2 fans get on me for this, let me explain.

Swellow and Staraptor got much more screentime than the earlier two birds, mainly because of the lack of flying-type moves in the earlier generations. They also had a lot more personality. They just felt better overall.

July 29th, 2010, 5:09 PM
Swellow would be one the best, in spite of it's high attack power. My 2nd would be Pidgeot.

July 29th, 2010, 5:22 PM
starraptor is beastly. for its wide moveset posibility.

swellow doesnt have as many moves but i love it because it was in with my very first 6 pokemon.

July 29th, 2010, 10:27 PM
Definitely Pidgeot just because it is awesome. Swellow is pretty sweet just because it can take some significant damage and still fight. Noctowl is underrated and still great, but Ash just never used it in battle that much. Staraptor is alright, his Brave Bird is cool but I think it is too overpowered in some cases.

Looking at this thread reminds me of how it's hard for me to dislike any Bird Type Pokemon.

I like almost all Bird Type Pokemon, and I like all of those Ash has.
But Pidgeot has a special place in my mind, and is personally my favourite for what it was and is.
It may not be good competitively in these gens, but my loyalty doesn't let go of things this way.
Even in terms of looks it's beautiful, but so are the others great at both battle and looks.

I have to say Ash's Pidgeot is my most favourite among his bird type Pokemon, but I like the others almost as much.

Noctowl pwns all.

Live with it.

Nuff said !!!

If Ash kept his Pidgeot and trained it, it would have definitely been the most beast of all his pokemon. Too bad he lost his Pidgeot because it was seriously BEAST-TASTIC

I'd say Staraptor... It's ability to use other moves than Normal&Flying is a Definite advantage but in the episode Pidgeotto evolved didn't ash say he was going to come back for pidgeot Maybe Isshu?

July 30th, 2010, 8:54 AM
Falkner's Pidgeot just showed everyone how beastly this pokemon can be... That is why it is my favorite

July 30th, 2010, 9:01 AM
swellow, the episode where he taught it aerial ace swung it for me

July 30th, 2010, 2:49 PM
arial ace is a good standard move for most birds for trainers who cant decide between high power but bad acc/recoil and people who perfer lower power but better accuracy.

i puts double teamers to shame =P

July 30th, 2010, 2:58 PM
My favorite would have to be either Noctowl or Staraptor.
Staraptor- Awesome Pokemon, and cool too.

July 30th, 2010, 4:18 PM
Staraptor by far. I like its move set better, mainly Close Combat and Brave Bird, and I like its personality, none of his birds had any real personality anyway. The only thing that irritates me about it is it's annoying ass dub voice. It didn't bother me when it was a Staravia but it's sounds like a piece of **** now.

July 30th, 2010, 4:35 PM
oh yea, when it goes in for an attack it streeeeeeeeeetches its name out while going in for an attack which is annoying. but yea its got the best move set.

I guess Staraptor gets my vote. Dunno why...
Maybe because he was only one of those birds I've ever used in games.

My favourite will always be Swellow and Pidgeot. I don't like Staraptor much xD
And Noctowl ? Neutral, because I don't really have an opinion on it. o:

It's my childhood's favourite ever since that lame Ash caught him.

July 31st, 2010, 1:20 AM
Noctowl. It's shiny and epic and uses Psychic moves.

July 31st, 2010, 7:59 AM
Pidgeot & Noctowl since they seemed they most useful and had better storylines and involvement.

Pidgeot, because it didn't cheat with thunder armor.
It was just a beast.

August 2nd, 2010, 7:41 AM
I like Swellow, he is brave!!

August 2nd, 2010, 8:01 AM
Pidgeot then swellow then noctowl and last staraptor.

Just saying the word pidgeot gives me goosebumps!

August 2nd, 2010, 8:12 AM
im going with pigeot, its way better

August 2nd, 2010, 1:10 PM
Staraptor; but only because I like the Sinnoh saga best

August 2nd, 2010, 1:15 PM
But only because he is shiny ! <3

August 2nd, 2010, 1:37 PM
Noctowl was cool, so was swellow. :)
