Doduo is a two-headed, bipedal avian Pokémon. Each head has a long sharp beak and two beady black eyes with no discernible sclera. It has a soft but bristly, down-like covering of brown feathers on its body and both heads. The males of the species have black flexible necks, whereas females have brown necks; both genders have brown coloring on their legs. It has two feet, each with four digits ending in a sharp claw.
Even when sleeping or nourishing itself with food and water, one head is always awake and alert and keeps a keen eye out for enemies. Both heads have an identical brain. However, it is believed that on occasion they may possess different sets of brains. It is also theorized that the two heads communicate with some form of telepathy to be coordinated with one another. Due to its almost non-existent wings, it cannot fly very well but has developed its legs to be a very powerful runner. Reaching speeds of 60 mph, it energetically strides across the plains leaving large, 4" deep footprints behind it. Doduo lives in wide open plains, grasslands and savannahs.
- In the Pokémon Red and Blue beta, Doduo was originally known as "Dodo", its Japanese name.
- Before Generation IV, the necks of normal Doduo were black (which became the male neck color), while its evolution's necks were beige (which became the female neck color).
- According to its Pokédex entries, Doduo can run at 60 mph, while Dodrio can only run at nearly 40 mph. However, Dodrio's base Speed stat is higher.
- Despite its non-existent wings, Doduo and its evolution are capable of learning Steel Wing and Fly.
Doduo is a combination of dodo (an extinct, flightless bird) and duo (a pair). Dodo is literally dodo. Duo means double.
