Top Ten Best Flying Type Pokemon

It's the coolest w water bird ever

V8 Comments

I'm bittersweet about this Pokemon, mostly because of it's ability. It has as much attack as Mega Aerodactyl. However, the ability it has, defeatist, makes using him impossible. Defeatist cuts ALL it's stats in half if it gets attacked.

The fact that the developers had to give it the "Defeatist" ability to nerf down the Pokemon says quite a lot about it. And the ability rarely ends up triggering because this beast usually OHKO's everything!

My hands down favorite flying type

U must get your hands on this bird

His defensive typing only makes him weak to fire and electric, not very common attack types. He also has great defensive stats, good attacks in brave bird, recovery in roost, and many setup moves such as defog. This pokemon is Anything Goes material. - Doggus

Skarmory because he is a bird covered with armour and that makes a good combination of defense and speed al;so attack from up high and even can avoid toxic spikes if a pokemon like drapion uses it. that's why he is so powerful he should be at least number 5

I'll one shot Landorus with my Gyarados or any other water type I have with me a the time

Electric attacks immunity. Great special attack power. Beat that. - CycloneFang

Unfortunately no STAB flying moves

Lugia is my favorite legendary and its psychic/flying

Lugia is good competitively having access to moves like Calm Mind and Extrasensory. Good Legendary and Pokemon overall

Come on 21? Lugia is the best. It should be number 1. Also the three legendary birds look up to Lugia like a boss

Lugia is a legendary it should be top 10

26YveltalYveltal is a fictional creature in the Pokemon Franchise. Introduced in the 6th gen, Yveltal is a legendary Dark/Flying type Pokemon, and is the mascot of Pokemon Y. It is classified as the Destruction Pokemon. Yveltal has the ability to absorb life energy, and when its life comes to an end, it steals more.

Yveltal is awesome. I think he should be in the top five.

He is awesome. All hail the destruction Pokemon!

Three words: YVELTAL IS awesome

He should be top 5 not18

Swellow is badass Pokemon he is strong also

Swellow is extremely strong and cool and can fly farer than any Pokemon ever.

Good until you get to the league the second time

Swellow + guts + toxic orb + facade = fast sweep

In my opinion this guy is pretty first, he should be at least in the teens, not at no. 20

Come on guys it,s a legendary Pokemon it should be the first on the list

Double weak to stealth rock and a lot of weaknesses, should be lower on the list

Really number 22 it is a beast

I was playing competitively once, and this bad girl saved me big time. It was her against three of the other opponents Pokemon. Her great defense, roost, and foul play. She is better than Braviary due to foul play, using his own attack stat against him.
I also like her because buzzards are my favorite type of birds.

It's looking ability is amazing.

Just look at his bad ass design! He's like Al Capone and the Italian Mafia rolled into one amazing bird! He is also not a bad Pokemon, just a tad bit slow.

Moxie is a great hidden ability and 125 attack is good

Honchkrow is a decent Pokemon but not to good

No on else put honchkrow on?

Unfezant was one of the Pokemon which just made me bang it's way when it uses Ariel ace in anime it is number 1 female unfezant was better then male

Pure combination of attack and speed, Unfezant has a major say in who roams the skies!

How is this Pokemon not in the top 10. It has a great design and lots of health

This Is the Best Flying type Ever

36BlazikenBlaziken, known in Japan as Bashāmo, is a Pokémon species in Nintendo and Game Freak's Pokémon franchise.

Blaziken isn't a flying type though. It's fire fighting, in-fact it's the pokemon that started the unspoken rule that all good starters must be fire fighting (unless they look like a dragon).

He's my favorite pokemon gotta love 'em

Can Blaziken fly? True, he is a bird (was, if not) but he is still vunerable to ground type moves.

Shaymin may not be the strongest I admit but it is the cutest ever! Does anyone know another Pokemon who is grass and adorable and can change to a grass flying who is stronger and even cuter? Tropius does NOT even compete with shaymin it's nowhere near good enough as shaymin!

Shaymin sky is so good that it is in ubers, it has serene grace+ air slash+ seed flare. With serene grace, air slash has a 60% of flinching chance and seed flare has80% chance of harshly lower your opponent's special defense. How is it so low on the list

He has good speed and ability serene grace which double secondairy affect making makes air slash 60% flinch and seed flare 80% lower sp definitely.


Jumpluff is a straight up baller


Emolga is one of Iris's pokemon a adorable electric/flying it is really strong and it was really hard to catch for me cause it was like level 48. FUN FACT Did you know Emolga is slightly faster than zapdos. Emolga was really hard to beat with skyla it litterly took an hour LITTERLY.I would suggest to level up emolga to level 78 cause when mine earned its full in conculsotion I think Emolga is a pretty cool pokemon
