Taillow is a Normal/Flying-type Pokémon introduced in Generation III. It evolves into Swellow, starting at level 22.


Taillow was one of the original 26 contestants in this series. He is the rival and best friend of Grovyle. Taillow got voted off 2 episodes before the merge for crashing into a group of people, but in the TPI special, Taillow was seen with the case for the longest amount of time.

In Total Pokemon Action, Taillow continued to play the game with Treecko, even if it meant almost getting voted off because of the psycotic Mudkip, but Mudkip got booted instead. Taillow and Treecko evolved into Swellow and Grovyle at the same time.


Taillow, being the Sandra of the group, is Latina and can sometimes suck at challenges. Taillow was put on Team Mawile and was the first player voted off from Team Maile in Episode 3 for being seen as a weak link. Taillow did qualify for season 2.

Taillow seemed to be good friends with Wailord in Episode 1 of TPA, easily mirroring the friendship Rupert and Sandra shared in Survivor. Taillow finished in 6th in the Shake It Up challenge out of the female returning players and was put on Team Safari Zone. In Episode 2, Taillow avoid getting shot by a member of Team Iron Island in the laser tag portion of the Suite Life challenge, which was a help in winning invincibility for her team. In Episode 3, Taillow didn't contribute much to winning immunity for Team Safari Zone, but at the very least she's not hindering her team.
