Doduo Description From Various Pokemon Games

By reading the descriptions given of Doduo in several Pokemon games, you can put together a clear picture of its powers.

  • In "Pokemon Red/Blue," Doduo is described as a bird that makes up for its poor flying with its fast foot speed. It leaves giant footprints.
  • In "Pokemon Yellow," its short wings make flying difficult. Instead, this Pokemon runs at high speed on developed legs.
  • In "Pokemon Gold," by alternately raising and lowering its two heads, Doduo balances itself to be more stable while running.
  • In "Pokemon Silver," it races through grassy plains with powerful strides, leaving footprints up to 4 inches deep.
  • In "Pokemon Crystal," it lives on a grassy plain where it can see a long way. If it sees an enemy, it runs away at 60 miles per hour.
  • In "Pokemon Ruby," Doduo's two heads never sleep at the same time. The two heads take turns sleeping, so one head can always keep watch for enemies while the other one sleeps.
  • In "Pokemon Sapphire," Doduo's two heads contain completely identical brains. A scientific study reported that on rare occasions, there are examples of this Pokemon possessing different sets of brains.
  • In "Pokemon Emerald," one of the heads remains always vigilant for any sign of danger even while the other head eats or sleeps. When threatened, it flees at over 60 miles per hour.
  • In "Pokemon Fire Red," the two-headed Doduo Pokemon was described as a sudden mutation. 
  • In "Pokemon Leaf Green," DoDuo is described as a bird that makes up for its poor flying with its fast foot speed. It leaves giant footprints.
