Spearow is a brown avian Pokémon that is very small. It has rough plumage on its head, with a beak shape similar to that of Bird of prey|raptors, being short but hooked. Spearow’s underside is beige in coloration, with a patterning of two thin stripes. Spearow’s light-pink feet have three talons, and its wings are a pinkish-red with lighter edges. Spearow’s back is black in coloration, and it has three brown-colored tail feathers. Its height is 1'00" and weight is 4.4 lbs.
Although inept at other aspects of its flying, such as height and distance, Spearow is still capable of flying quickly to protect its territory. Spearow is described as being frail, but still allegedly capable of being a tough Pokémon due to its ability to use Mirror Move.
Spearow are easily angered and very protective of their territory, and may chase after foes in large flocks. Spearow is required to flap its wings at incredibly high speeds to stay airborne, and thus is inept at flying high or for long distances. However, it is still capable of flying very quickly to protect its territory, and while doing such, it makes a high-pitched cry. Spearow’s cry is very loud and can be heard half a mile (one kilometer) away, and if the cry is heard echoing all around, it is a sign that they are warning each other of danger. Spearow is also depicted to see in black and white.

Ash was attacked by a large flock of Spearow in Pokémon - I Choose You! after he hit one Spearow on the head with a rock to weaken it, thinking it was a Pidgey, (because Pikachu refused to obey and battle). The flock of Spearow returned, with the leader, the very same Spearow that Ash had hit in the first episode, as a Fearow in Pallet Party Panic!. The flock reappeared in flashbacks in Pokémon Emergency!, Challenge of the Samurai, Pikachu's Goodbye, Historical Mystery Tour! and Lucario and the Mystery of Mew.
