Wild Spawns

The best wild spawns you will encounter in Flock Together Research Day are:

  • Pidgey: Its final evolution form is Pidgeot. In a PvPoke situation, the Pocket Monster usually emerges victorious. Your deciding move in a fight can be the Brave Bird or Feather Dance.

  • Wingull: It evolves into Pelipper which has some spectacular skills. The Nuke attack can land near-fatal damage when unshielded.

  • Fletchling: There are two forms which might be useful to you– Fletchinder (middle) and Talonflame (final). The latter’s iconic move Incinerate is a slow 5-turn fast move which inflicts serious damage.
