Starly and Taillow line. Starly because Staraptor has high attack and it learns good moves. Tailow line because Swellow is one of the fastest Pokèmon's.

Oh this is hard. I have a soft spot in my heart for the Pidgey line and the Starly line. I view them both to be superior to the others, but if I had to choose between them, I consider Staraptor the better Pokémon, so ultimately, I would end up with that line.

I have huge soft spots for Pidgey and Starly. I used them in just about every play though. Even their shiny forms just rock. Hmm. Hmm... Since I know someone who loves Pidgey to death, I'll pick Starly. :)

Hoot-hoot. Totally. Not even kidding.

... :(

Nah, but seriously, Pidgey forever and always. There aren't really any specific traits to the Pokemon that really makes me like it, however it was the first Pokemon I ever caught myself, the first one except for my starter which I ever fully evolved, and the first Pokemon that I ever really liked. And it's design, even though it's really simple and just like any real life bird, I really like it. How its eyes give off that angry expression, even though it really just looks adorable. djhhfksdhfhdfdfh I just really like Pidgey, and there's never been a single playthrough of Kanto where it hasn't been on my team :D:D:D:D:D

Since Swellow is my #1 favourite Pokemon it's pretty clear which line I voted for, I do like all the others too.

I liked Staraptor the most because it was the most useful out of all the other ones.

I Design wise: Pidgey > Taillow > Starly > Hoothoot > Pidove.
Staraptor is really powerful though.

Starly...It's evolutionary line is obviously the strongest outta the 5. There's nothing like a Flying type with High Attack power. *sighs* I like the Taillow-line after the Starly-line.

Starly, hands down. Staraptor easily sets itself apart from the other fully evolved starting birds for its ability to learn Close Combat to hit Rocks and Steels hard.

I liked Staraptor. It had a pretty sick design coupled with useable stats in comparison with Pidgeot and Swellow.

Taillow --> Swellow by SO much it's not even funny haha. Staple part of my Emerald team and to me the design is just perfect.

I think Spearow/Fearow should also be an option on this list - Spearow are available in Kanto just one route after Pidgey so I've always considered them both to be the starter birds of Kanto. Plus, they're in the very first episode of the anime. Not that I would have chosen Spearow, I just think they deserve a mention

Anyway, Pidgey is my definite choice. Even aside from it being the original which gets my nostalgic gears turning and sends me on a trip down Memory Wharhage, I think it has by far the best design of them all. They've simply yet to come up with cooler looking birds since the Pidgey line. Pidgey itself is obviously nothing special, but Pidgeotto is nothing short of beautiful and they've yet to trump the majestic look of Pidgeot. I don't think they ever will. Simply beautiful feat of animation.

My least favourite is by far the Pidove line. Unfezant is the dorkiest bird I've ever seen in my entire life. And this is a world that includes a two-headed ostrich.

I loved Tailow out of all of them :3.It was my first bird Pokemon ever and I've loved it no matter what other people say. Apart from being utterly adorable ^^, I've loved how it can use some diverse moves and how speedy it is.

Swellow is a powerhouse,being one of the speediest bird Pokemon and deadly.Also I love the designs,red and dark blue along with white? That's just awesome :D.

I have to say I have a little love for Pidgey as well since it is also really cute ^^. I've used one in HG and he was a decent guy :D.
pineapples are cool.
