Noctowl's name derives from the words nocturnal and owl. Its Japanese name is a portmanteau of 夜の ( yoruno?), of the night, and 青葉梟 ( aobazuku?), the Brown Hawk Owl.

Biological characteristics

Noctowl bears close resemblance to the owl. It is a large bird whose plumage is colored in various shades of brown. Its round head has two piercing red eyes and two large "eyebrows". These eyesbrows, suprisingly, hold a very important effect. They help balance Noctowl while it is flying to increase its aerodynamics. Families Strigidae Tytonidae Ogygoptyngidae (fossil) Palaeoglaucidae (fossil) Protostrigidae (fossil) Sophiornithidae (fossil) Synonyms Strigidae sensu Sibley & Ahlquist Owls are a group of birds of prey. ...


Noctowl is a nocturnal Pokémon. Like most Pokémon which are active during the night, Noctowl possesses superior eyesight. Its eyes are specially adapted so that they can concentrate even faint light and retain satisfactory visibility even in almost complete darkness. This ability is shared by real world animals such as its counterpart, the owl, as well as cats. A nocturnal animal is one that sleeps during the day and is active at night - the opposite of the human (diurnal) schedule. ... Night-vision is seeing in the dark. ... Cats may refer to: Felines, members of the animal family Felidae The domesticated animal, cat The musical, yeah right, I bet that this was really dumb. ...


When hunting, Noctowl puts its prodigious eyesight to good use to hunt down prey without fail. It is also very good at sneaking up to its victims unnoticed thanks to its supple, soft-feathered wings that allow it to fly without making any noise.


In the Pokémon world, Noctowl, just like the owl, is regarded as an icon of intelligence and wisdom. When a Noctowl needs to ponder especially deep thoughts, it can rotate its head 180 degrees, which serves to increase its intellectual faculties. The ability to rotate its head is another trait shared by its real world counterpart. However, real owls are not very intelligent. Intelligence is the mental capacity to reason, plan, solve problems, think abstractly, comprehend ideas and language, and learn. ...

In the video games

Besides being the evolution of Hoothoot, Noctowl can also be found in the wild. In Pokémon Gold and Silver, Noctowl is found in Routes 2, 8, 13, 14, 15 and 43 during the night. In Pokémon Crystal, Noctowl can additionally be found in Routes 5, 25, 26, 27, 37, 38 and 39, the National Park and the Ilex Forest, again during the night, as well as at any time using Headbutt on trees.

Noctowl has some average statistics, and its Hit Points and Special Defense are very good, but it has poor Defense, and worst of all, Attack. This means that it cannot use effectively the few powerful offensive moves it learns naturally. Noctowl is unusual in that it can learn both Hypnosis and Dream Eater without belonging to the Psychic type. If one chooses to use Noctowl in battle, one may want to aim for a strategy other than dealing damage directly, such as disrupting and forcing the opponent to switch Pokémon. This article or section does not cite its references or sources. ...


As of 4th generation, Noctowl has become a much more useful Pokémon, due to a more expansive move set, and more importantly, the split of physical and special attacks. Noctowl's 76 base Special Attack is much better than its Attack, and it may learn useful Special Attacks like Psychic, Air Slash, and Hyper Beam, finally giving it a viable source of upfront damage. It is still better suited for a support role, however, rather than a special sweeper.


In the anime

A shiny Noctowl has been part of Ash's team during his travels in Johto (As his Johto replacement for Pidgeotto/Pidgeot). Ash frequently used Noctowl to explore an area from the sky, or to puncture Team Rocket's hot-air balloon. Ash used it in many battles throughout Johto, but it is currently living in Professor Oak's lab since Ash decided to make a fresh start and leave all of his Pokémon except for Pikachu when he left for Hoenn. Also, in the Master Quest arc, an episode called Throwing in the Noctowl involved an old man and his Noctowl trying to fly Ash and co. to the next gym. It is also implied that this Noctowl is older than Ash's. Ash Ketchum is a fictional character in the Pokémon line of game products. ...

  • Neo Genesis
  • Neo Destiny (as Shining Noctowl)
  • Skyridge
  • EX Unseen Forces
  • Noctowl will be in the Diamond and Pearl set
