Pokemon Of The Week – Delibird

Delibird is a dual-type Ice/Flying Pokémon. It is Pokedex number is #225. It is not known to evolve into or from any other Pokémon.  Delibird is a red penguin-like Pokémon with a sack-like tail. It has a patch of fluffy feathers on its chest that resembles a beard. Delibird has a white face with black rings around its eyes. Delibird’s beak and feet are light-yellow. 

Delibird’s most famous power is that it attacks by giving presents to its opponents. These presents, glowing orbs pulled from inside its tail, often explode, damaging the enemy. However, this move is unpredictable, even for the Delibird. The effect of the present could harm an opponent, or it could even help it! Delibird is the only known Pokémon that learns Present by leveling up.

Delibird are often delivering items to either Pokémon or people. The deliveries are often from humans, but may be from Pokémon. Delibird tend to live in mountainous regions, making their nests over sharp cliffs.

In the anime, Delibird first appeared in Delibird’s Dilemma under the ownership of Santa Claus. Ash’s Totodile shot a Delibird that was delivering presents clear out of the sky with Water Gun-propelled snowball. Pikachu and co. had to help the Delivery Pokémon find the five presents before midnight.

Delibird’s first appearance in the main series was in Dues and Don’ts. It was owned by an elderly talent scout from Team Rocket. Since that episode, the Delivery Pokémon kept following Jessie, James and Meowth to collect money that the three of them owe. Fortunately for the Rocket Trio, Delibird was no longer able to tail them since the action moved to the Hoenn Region. Delibird has also appeared in Grating Spaces and The Thief That Keeps On Thieving.
