Some people speculate that Pidgey was based off the carrier pigeon. I don't really agree with that idea (I'm guessing it was just based on general pigeons, no specific breed) but that little tidbit did give me the idea of having Pidgey trying to transport some letters. Honestly, I don't think its doing that great of a job... but it is just a Pidgey!

A lot of people don't seem too fond of this little guy, but I personally have used it and his evolutions many times. It's easy to level, decently strong, and works as a flier, so why not? :)

I really like the background on this one too, it turned out better then I was anticipating. Oh, and if anyone is curious, these Pokemon pictures take about 5-6 hours on average from start to finish. I think its worth the time. :)

It is really nice, added it as one of my favorites. The pose is the thing that I like the most.

I personally prefer Spearow to Pidgey, but only for the higher attack. Pidgey is way cuter.

Yeah, and Spearow also had peck which was useful against grass types and stuff. (Where-as Pidgey didn't have anything like that at the earlier levels.) Pidgey > Spearow in terms of looks though, like you said. (And he got worse when he evolved, at least in the original red and blue). @.@

I admit that I didn't have much love for Pidgey. However, getting older, I'm getting a renewed interest in Pokemanz I never liked before, i.e. Nidorina and Pidgey. It looks cute there.

Yeah, same here. I used to not like any Pokemon that had less then three forms, but now I'm not quite so picky. :)
