Pidgeot is saved by the advent of a new Mega Evolution form. In the previous meta’s, Pidgeot was relegated to the never-used group of Pokemon, and it wasn’t hard to see why. It had no redeeming features that would warrant a spot in any Pokemon team. Now, in the Pokemon Omega Ruby and Alpha Sapphire Meta game, Pidgeot is somewhat usable now with a mega stone attached to it.

Mega Pidgeot @ Pidgeotite
EVS: 252 Special Attack, 252 Speed, 4 HP. Nature: Modest, Ability: No Guard
Taking advantage of Mega Pidgeot’s good Special attack and Speed, this set is designed to hit hard and then run. With No Guard, Hurricane is a deadly weapon; foregoing the shaky accuracy, transforming the move to a reliable and powerful move. Heatwave allows you to hit steel types, while Roost increases Mega Pidgeots survivability. U-turn is an excellent move to scout potential counters, while proceeding to counter on your own. This is especially useful as Pidgeot is crippled by Heatran and rock types.
