#276.5 - Though fresh from the nest, Taillow are stubbornly courageous and won’t back down from a fight with a larger opponent. They frequently get lonely and weaken quickly when hungry, so they are quick to try to find other Taillow and Swellow to flock with. They are fast learners, and practice diving and searching for prey with their elders. The age of a Taillow can be determined by studying the pattern of the red patch on their chest.
The current babies and eggs in the care of the Pokedaycare!
Though it might seem like the two siblings at the daycare have a lot to worry about constantly, it is actually rare to come across an unattended egg. Pokemon are not so neglectful. They also simply do not pick up something they find and take it home. Unless the egg is odorless, damaged/dirty or nestless, they will monitor eggs to see if the parent will return / is just having a little trouble / is a first time nester. If no-one comes back after three days, they will adopt the egg into their care.
When the young-ones feel like they are old enough to leave the two, Arty and Ares’s will evaluate them– and if they are indeed ready, they will let them discover the world alone. A lot of Pokespecies let their children fend for themselves a few days after hatching and so, by doing this, they are simply fulfilling what the parent would have done regardless– teaching the child to hunt, defend themselves, find shelter and allowing them to have social interactions with peers so they grow up with a kind attitude.
Some Pokemon take longer to leave the nest than others. Usually, the daycare has around six (on average) children at a time, with about five eggs waiting. By the time the eggs hatch, some children would have left. This way, they are never overrun!
