Pokemon Analysis

Overview

Pidgeot is an incredible Special Strike Pokemon. Mega Pidgeot can get up to 403 Sp. ATK, making him a force to be reckoned with. 

Similar to Houndoom, Pidgeot requires some special conditions be met before he can reach his full potential. 

Strengths

High Stats and Buffs

Pidgeot has one of the game's highest Sp. ATK values after triggering his Mega Evolution. He’s also extremely fast.

"Smell Ya Later!" Boosts Evasion, Accuracy, and Critical Hit Rate, allowing Pidgeot to dodge many incoming Attacks and hit back even harder.

"X Sp. ATK" increases his already high Sp. ATK.

Pidgeot's Accuracy and Speed can't be lowered thanks to his passive, which is extremely valuable in many situations and ensures consistent performance.

Fantastic Toolkit

Mega Pidgeot has some incredible Offensive Moves. Hurricane can leave all Enemies Confused.

Air Cutter is AoE and increases Critical Hit Rate. 

Both Moves are extremely powerful with his Sp. ATK stat to back them up. 

Weaknesses

Low Base Accuracy

Hurricane is Mega Pidgeot's primary Offense Move, but it’s only 70% Accurate. This means Pidgeot requires an Accuracy Buff or Rain Dance to be able to consistently land its main damage dealing move . 

The latter isn't recommended since the Move Gauge is better spent Buffing other aspects of Pidgeot while he raises his own Accuracy through "Smell Ya Later!".

Has a Build-up Phase

Pidgeot is less efficient for quick encounters. Optimally, Pidgeot should Mega Evolve and stick to longer Battles.

Team Synergy

Critical Speed Teams

Pigeot really benefits from a Team that Buffs Speed and Critical Hit Rate. Roxanne and Phoebe are great Teammate options because of this. These two take care of the Critical Hit Rate and Speed, and Nose Pass also buffs Sp. ATK and Defense.
