Natu (Japanese: ネイティ Naty) is a dual-type Psychic/Flying Pokémon.

It evolves into Xatu starting at level 25.

Biology

Physiology

Natu is a tiny, mostly green bird Pokémon with a nearly spherical body, and with accentuations of red, yellow and black along with its main coloration. It possesses brightly colored, yellow-and-red wings with thick black stripes. The wings are small and not fully-grown, thus making it unable to fly. Natu has a red crest on the top of its head, and its three-toed feet and three tail feathers are also red. Natu also has almond-shaped eyes and a yellow beak.

Gender differences

None.

Special abilities

Like many Psychic-type Pokémon, it possesses psychic abilities. It is also quite skilled at climbing tree trunks and hopping.

Behavior

Due to its prophetic abilities, it is a very cautious Pokémon that is easily spooked. It has the quirky behavior of staring at something until the thing moves.

Habitat

Forest

Forest Pokémon

Natu are believed to be native to South America, although they can be found near ruins in Johto.

Diet

It usually forages for food on the ground but may, on rare occasions, hop onto branches to peck at the tree's new shoots. It also picks food from cactus plants, avoiding the buds and spines.
