[OVERVIEW]
Pidgey is unviable in the Little Cup metagame due to its poor stats, mediocre typing, and average movepool. While other Flying-types may find niches due to useful abilities or high stats, Pidgey has nothing to warrant including it over another Flying-type on any competitive team. Its stats and movepool leave it completely outclassed by Doduo, Vullaby, and Rufflet, among others.

[SET]
name: Choice Scarf
move 1: Brave Bird
move 2: Return
move 3: U-turn
move 4: Defog / Heat Wave
item: Choice Scarf
ability: Big Pecks
nature: Jolly / Naive
evs: 36 HP / 236 Atk / 228 Spe

[SET COMMENTS]
Pidgey's most viable set would be a Choice Scarf set to revenge kill weakened Pokemon with slightly powerful attacks. However, its low Attack and average Speed prevent it from being seriously threatening; Doduo, Vullaby, and Rufflet all perform this role more effectively.

(tldr just change "a niche" in the overview to "niches" and potentially replace the set name. also, don't forget to add the new credits section!)

Corporal Levi if you want the set to be named Pidgey then you can switch it back from Choice Scarf but otherwise what I have in the hide tag is something you can literally cp into the OP, credits section and all you lazy bum
