Ranking the Pokemon: #64- Fearow

Fearow reminds me of those birds that fly over the water for hours at a time, and then just dive in to pluck some fish out of the water. Which I guess is most birds, but still. And looking at the Pokedex entry (which doesn't happen often, so cherish it), Fearow does in fact have endless stamina: "With its huge and magnificent wings, it can keep aloft without ever having to land for rest.

Stat-wise, the large-winged bird has very good Speed and strong Attack, with everything else being pretty subpar. The only problem is the pool of moves it can learn. There's Drill Peck, Agility and...well, that's about it. I guess you could throw Hyper Beam or Double-Edge on there, and maybe Mirror Move? I don't even know. If it didn't have that wicked cool mohawk, it would be a lot lower on this list.

Battling Grade: C
