BirbieFront

Birbie is a Normal/Flying Pokémon.

It evolves into Aveden starting at level 17, and then to Splendifowl starting at level 31.

Pokédex entry

Pokédex entry
It defends itself by dazzling opponents by flashing its brightly colored plumage. They are known for their elaborate mating dances.

Biology

Physiology

Birbie is a small, round avian Pokémon with dark blue feathers covering its body, yellow tail feathers, and two cyan feet. Two long antenna-like yellow feathers extend from its forehead. Just below its beak, it has a bright cyan crest that curves upward and resembles a large smiling mouth; this, along with its large eyes, makes Birbie appear larger than it is, discouraging predators from attacking it.

Special abilities

Birbie's signature move is Flash. Its crest is bright enough that it can reflect light off the feathers; it uses this to blind potential predators.

Behavior

Birbie performs elaborate mating dances to attract a potential partner. This Pokémon tends to prey on Cubbug and other small, weak Pokémon. It is usually shy and skittish, but can get very territorial over its nesting sites.

Habitat

Birbie tends to gather in flocks in wooded areas. It prefers to stay in the trees, but does often come down to the ground to feed.
