Everyone wanted to play with Pidgey. No one cared about Spearow.

      And both are outclassed by Dodrio

        Dodrio at least comes at around the Fuscia City to excuse the fact it's an upgrade over Pidgey and Spearow. Fearow is a fucking upgrade over Pidgeot despite evolving over ten levels earlier and catching it just one route over.

          This, especially in gen 1 where Pidgeot had a garbage movepool. While Fearow had freaking Drill Peck.

          I guess the anime shilling was working, because why else would you use Shitgeot over Chadrow.

        Not really outclassed. You get Spearow way earlier, giving it plenty of time to level and get stat exp. Dodrio's stats aren't even THAT much higher.

          This. And if you want Dodrio before Pokeflute, you're stuck with a Duduo for 10 levels, and Duduo is terrible.

        On paper, yes
        In actuality, no

        The old stat exp(old ev) system works more or less as a "weapon proficiency" system that works in the players favour to make any "shitmon" completely viable. Catching a spearow at the very beginning of the game will be able to get more stats thanks to an additional 20 levels of experience. IVs definitely play a part as well as vitamins, but typically after pokemon get into lvl60+ range is where you'll really see the major differences and exponential growths between base stats.

    I loved Spearow and Fearow. Blue's Spearow always crit with Peck. I would go out of my way to catch one. I even enjoyed learning you could catch Fearow in Victory Road like it was supposed to be good or something.

    It's a shame because all it's other sprites are cute like if we got the Pidgey face from GSC at first there is no way it well become popular even with the anime shilling

    Fearow actually looks pretty cool but Spearow is so ugly I can't even be bothered raising one to that point.

    >Available basically as early as pidgey
    >Is better than pidgey
    >Evolves into its final form 2 level later than pidgey evolves into its middle form
    >Pidgey then has to wait 16 more levels for its final form
    >Fearow is better than pidgeotto AND pidgeot anyway
    >And as one final nail in the coffin, Spearow gets peck at level 1, while Pidgey has to wait till it’s in its late 20s for wing attack (Which is equal to peck in gen 1)
    >Spearow also gets drill peck while pidgey is stuck with fly as its best move
    Pidgeyfags coping HARD, Spearow is better gen 1 bird. Dodrio is technically better but it’s available WAY later, and flying types are most useful in the early game due to all the bug and grass types

      Pidgey has the better experience group. It will be higher level than Spearow up until level 68.

    I've only ever used Fearow whenever available lol
    also the claim is just wrong when Spearow is a giftmon in HGSS

      he's a giftmon you're supposed to gift to someone else
      does he take the mon even if you evolve him?

        You can transfer the mail to any other shitmon and deliver that. It's only about the mail, not KENYA.

    The anime made them jerks and Pidgeot looked cooler. We were all ignorant little kids back then that didn't know Fearow was the superior choice.
