Timid 100%
When a Pokemon has a high speed tier they can put to use you have to have the nature for speed or else they can't use speed to their advantage. It's common knowledge in the competitive world

That's what I thought, but Smogon says modest so I needed one more opinion to turn the tide. Thanks!
Smogon said that. I wonder who's the wierdo that wrote the review for pidgeot
I feel the same.

If one of those 2 Timid. It needs speed more then special attack.
I would go with hasty (+speed - def) tho so you dont lose power on u-turn.

Yeah, normally I don't like using down Attack natures and physical moves, but Pidgeot needs all its bulk .
