Petra's Taillow


Type: Flying/Normal

Taillow is a small bird Pokémon with dark blue feathers. A red marking with pointed tips stretches from its chest to its forehead, and it has a white underside. It has narrow brown eyes and a short yellow beak. It has elongated wingtips and black feet with yellow talons. Each foot has three toes facing forward and one backward. Two sharply pointed feathers form its tail.

Taillow is very gutsy, and will stand up to powerful opponents without backing down. During the cold season, this Pokémon will fly over 180 miles per day to search for areas that have warm climates. It typically hunts Wurmple, but flocks have also been known to eat crops as well. When it is hungry, it will weaken and cry loudly.

Taillow are revered in the village of Sandpoint. They are carefully raised and bred by the Desnan Pokémon Center and one thousand taillows are released to the wild every year during the annual “Swellowtail Festival”. After the release, in a furious storm of wings and a riot of color, young Eldritch Tamers are all given the opportunity to catch one.
