Dodrio resemble their pre-evolution, but are noticeably larger, have gained three large pink tail feathers, and has gained an extra head. Each of its heads now also sport a black 'V'-shaped crest, and their eyes are now triangular. Each of its heads have different facial expressions, as they each represent a different emotion; one for sadness, one for anger, and one for joy. Dodrio still has a rounded body, but its black underside is now exposed. However, they are still lacking wings. Its height is 5'11" and weight is 187.8 lbs.
A female Dodrio has brown necks, while a male has black ones.
Dodrio have long legs that allow it to jump incredibly high, which makes up for its lack of flight. These legs also allow it to run incredibly fast and for long distances without rest, as well as to deal massively powerful kicks to its opponents. Dodrio communicates with its other heads by mental telepathy, although not having any special psychic abilities. Another feature that contributes to its running ability are its three sets of hearts and lungs, which enable it to run long distances without rest. It can deliver devastating blows at any angle with its sharp beaks.
Dodrio love to wake up early and call their cries every morning, and also love to run. They are usually very crotchety, arguing with themselves on a constant basis. However, if one of them gets to eat, the others will be satisfied too, and stop squabbling. Dodrio are especially wary if all three of its heads are looking in different directions. When sleeping, two heads sleep while one stays awake to guard for any enemies.
Dodrio can be found living in deserts and plains. Dodrio are native to Kanto, but they can be found on rare occasions in Sinnoh and Unova. They have also been imported to the Johto and Hoenn Safari Zones.
