Top Ten Best Flying Type PokemonCycloneFang
The Top Ten
1st his name has raptor in it. Second I consider this bird the true brawler of all the birds. He learns close combat! And his attack is ridiculous. Tops all
Plus he gets Reckless as a hidden ability, so Brave Bird has another +20% power. That's 120 +40%(20% STAB 20% Reckless). 40% of 120 is 48, so a Staraptor with Reckless can deal 168 damage in one move.
Staraptor is an amazing Pokemon because 1. It's move set is amazing with having close combat in it. 2. It's stats are really good. 3. IT LOOKS LIKE A BADASS!
AWESOME! Beat Paul's honchkrow in the sinnoh league!V 119 Comments
My Salamence too op.
Mega Salamence changes normal type moves like double edge into a flying type move.
Aerodactyl you just can not defeat Salamence. My Salamence know aqua tail. It will make you soaking wet.
Salamence is a flying type and also a dragon type so electric attacks won't work and it can learn water moves giving advantage against rock type
Not to mention Salamence can learn Iron Tail, which eliminates the problem of fairy types. You'd need a Togekiss to deal with this guy's raw offensive power.
My favorite pokemon of all time!V 61 Comments
This Pokemon is the strongest Pokemon in my list. It was superb Pokemon in the world. I love this Pokemon because it speed is more than a bullet train
When I went through Pokemon Silver/Soul Silver I used him. And he was just a wall, nothing destroyed it except for ice types. But if u just teach it FlameThrower it knocks them out easily
Why is he 5th? This pokemon beat two of trainer Reds pokemon (level 80+) when I used him, just at level 50. In the anime it destroyed most of ash's pokemon!
With multiscale and roost this beast never dies.V 46 Comments
Somebody said"who doesn't like fire and flying combo? ", u shouldn't, because it loses half of its health when switching into stealth rock
Fire flying combo sucks because of stealth rock, people think it is good just because it looks the coolest
Because it is fire type it can defeat grass bugs easily because it is flying type it can defeat fighting types easily. You should keep charizard in your team
Just ew, I used to love charizard Now I just overall hate it since I realized how garbage it is in competitive since I completed y
Go in showdown get 2 accounts to face yourself.
Use a pineco to use stealth rock.
Then You'll ACTUALLY see proof that it takes it down to 51%
Doesn't matter if it has 252 defense and 252 HP, It takes him down
some people in showdown are so stupid they switch to another pokemon to take my level 1 pineco out (STURDY AND BERRY JUICE) basically crippling them with pain split.
Almost guaranteed first strike. Confuse ray + poison fang until badly poisoned. Then switch with a resistant Pokemon and the match is yours. Give him a kings rock to make the opponent flinch and you got a winning formula.
Having played loads of pokemon I only started using crobat recently and man confuse ray, mean look and poison fang can destroy pokemon especially if you swap out to a tank. Plus it has god like speed
Really? I mean crobat has flying type attacks and you can even mix it with poison type attacks, and he is 8th in the list, what? Not saying that he owns superb speed which render all his of his enemy up.
I use him in my poison team, it is a very good pokemon and can learn great attacks like cross poison. I love crobatV 36 Comments
This guy has to stop fights between legendary Pokemon. You gotta be pretty OP to do that
This is crazy Rayquaza is actually the most powerful Pokemon why is staraptor first? Plus Rayquaza is part dragon type with a mega evolution Rayquaza seems like the best Pokemon EVER
He's beast. But a mega evolution... That's OP ti the max.
It should be at 1stV 55 Comments
Not to mention poison heal + toxic orb access to roost and facade boosted by status effects in this case poisoned. Also substitute compatible. Unless you re OHKO'd then you'll be stalling however long you want. I wouldn't go into battle without one.
What a Pokemon all the people that comment on other Pokemon are mad
Put on roost and a toxic orb and this thing destroys
Toxic orb, earth flyinh type, toxic, earthquake. If you don't have a ice type against it you will loseV 17 Comments
It's the best man. This powerful type is domination of the seas
Too bad about the quadruple weakness to Electric.
Holy moly its ment to be number one! 11
Gyardosite: Seven Seas Splash.
It’s mega is bad but his normal form makes it up science u want a psuedo to be your mega
Best both water and flying pokemon ever
The best bird Pokemon in my opinion. Gale Wings is just so awesome, allowing it to outspeed ANY non priority move and also it gets priority with Brave Bird and even Roost! Only flaw I see is the lack of bulk and a 4x Rock weakness.
Talonflame rocks! With Gale wings, he makes an excellent sweeper. Just be careful with rock types and quick guard, though.
Talonflame's design is awesome he is great in competitive battle and over all is just an awesome Pokemon to have on your team. Mine in Pokemon x sweeper almost everything.

It was already a good Pokemon, and the fairy type addition only made it better! And metronome works me wonders
It is so cute best flying type plus evolution of togepi
He's awesome first. Second he has serene grace and his move set is so diverse.
Togkiss, I just wanna want to kiss you, on your breast. Why people hate youV 20 Comments
@person who said "why is it number 1...", I can prove why Aerodactyl is so good. This thing is fast. Even though it's weak to rock, steel, water, electric, and ice, with Earthquake, Iron Head, Thunder Fang, and Rock Slide, it'll crush almost all resistance. Among the other rock types, I think only Rhyperior can knock this guy down (and I say Rhyperior only because of its Solid Rock ability).
Why is it number1..the comments say"he's just awesome", please that is not a reason, "it's got mega evolution, is sort of resistance to rock and electric attacks and it is very awesome", it is not the only Pokemon who can mega evolve and some non mega evolved Pokemon are better than the ones that mega evolved, it is weak to rock and electric and you need to prove it is awesome.
Aerodactyl is awesome I mean it with its mega evolution in x and y its even better it can also learn a couple dragon moves and best of all you don't have to reach the post game to get the mega stone. So you fan show off your mega aerodactyl fairly early.
Best flying pokemonV 22 Comments
Hawlucha can just sweep with Unburden and swords dance. - CycloneFang
He is the coolest
This is my number one his speed is op he's most likely to dodge half of the targets moves
He is obviously the best, flying press=K.O. not to mention high jump kick is boss, and sky attack is awesome. Sum it up Hawlucha=best flying typeV 17 Comments
Noivern is without a doubt one of my most favourite pokemon. Not only can it use boomburst which is extremely powerful it can also use supersonic to detect things or help people not to get lost in places
Noivern is really strong
As fast as Crobat, but with a much better moveset
One of my favourite because it can use roost whick can heal as well as has an high emount of envasionV 4 Comments
Ok, so his design is maybe a little weird, but don't let that distract from just how good a tank he can be. Couple that with Calm Mind, and sir, you got yo self a killer.
Now let me explain why having Drifblim instead of staraptor is abetter choice for your team. First of all Staraptor may have speed but his move pool takes forever to consistantly be good. It's also hard for staraptor to face the Elite four which is an even greater pitt fall. Drifblim though has a pretty good mach up with any other pokemon trainer and gym leader out there.
Why does everyone keep forgetting this one? It's just so cool! A unique Ghost/Flying typing, stats that, while not tournament worthy, can still get the job done and a great concept. Drifblim deserves more attention.
This thing deserves to be low because of its vulnerability to taunt and entire strategies being forced to offer under the power of a single move.V 3 Comments
It's a flying type, so it should be in the top five. There weren't too many good bird pokemon (excluding legendary birds) in the first generation to choose from other than Pidgey-Pidgeotto-Pidgeot. I'm sure 8/10 used Pidgeot as their flying-type pokemon: I most-certainly did. Has good moves too. Excellent attack and speed stats. Looks really cool too.
Pidgeot is best flying Pokemon for me forever
Out of all the flying types I've used, this one is the most powerful
Its look is amazing..powerful flying type..mega pidgeot looks even more awesome and way more powerful..it is just kinda underrated..definitely deserves a spot in the top 5V 37 Comments
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 literally the lord/guardian of the sea (it's actually not kyogre) AKA:over80%of the world! and he is so boss he doesn't even need to be a water type not only that he has the power to destroy acues with his silver water and he controls the 3 legendary birds and that's why he is the best flying typeV 10 Comments
Cool pokemon, but I think scizor could be better, but they also have the same stats... so it does not really madder.
He should be number one because he can eventually evolve into scizor, ad also because he has false swipe.
If good iv's it makes a great pokemon
I love himV 3 Comments
He is the coolest Pokemon ever and the strongest it's like pikachu's father bird
He was my first shiny and I didn't even try to get him shiny because he's godly as it is
This guy can live an ice type attack and it has like 100 speed. - CycloneFang
Zapdos is over 9000 he's amazingV 9 Comments
How this Pokemon didn't get higher I don't know. With Tailwind, Roost Brave Bird and Air Slash and a Weakness policy if it doesn't have Defiant, this Pokemon OWNS almost anything in the skies!
This Pokemon can crush any one. Brave bird and your opponent is out of the game. He should be 1 place easily
Literally wins in every stat except speed against staraptor! Easily should be first
Just Beast. I once did a not very effective sweep!V 16 Comments
The god of destruction is 28 while one of the weak regional birds is at 1 (staraptor). Don't forget that pidgeot is 11.
Yveltal is awesome. I think he should be in the top five.
He is awesome. All hail the destruction Pokemon!
i love youV 7 Comments
Altaria is my all time favourite Pokemon it has awesome mega great move set and has been with me for all my journeys
Reason it's Dragon/Flying because it's based on the Chinese legendary creature - PokemonGOSucks
I used it on my team on my team and with its mega it could wreck every dragon type
I vote for Altaria because it's one of my pokemon and it's really strong! From altaria, heliolisk, Starmie, and Scizor, I think Starmie and Altaria is one of my strongest pokemonsV 8 Comments
Yes because she is awesome
Based on some flying creature of some sort (Of Iranian origin) - PokemonGOSucks
I love Articuno!
One of the only ice flying typesV 7 Comments
Skarmory is AWESOME! Steel and flying for one, is a really good typing, as it is resistant to 8 types! And immune to poison and ground! (So useful for me lol). Its only weak against fire and electric! The amazing typing has been so useful for me during playing emerald. Its defense stat is incredible, and its got decent speed, HP, attack, and special defense. This pokemon really should be in the top ten!
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
The armor Bird. Period
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 5V 2 Comments
Ho-oh is on of the most powerful pokemon and the most powerful bird type pokemon, deserves no. 1
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
Based on the Chinese legendary bird - PokemonGOSucksV 10 Comments
Great water/flying combo with strong moves and high stats. Weak to electric types though.
Maybe number 60
It's just a pelican... with a fat beak. - PokemonGOSucks
High HP and can be a HM Sweeper.
I have said Draglage is my favorite Pokemon before, but I can't believe I forgot about Yanmega. The only weird thing about is its species. Seriously, the Ogre Darner Pokemon? I would like to meet the creative fellow that came up with THAT.
It's already fast, and with speed boost, it's awesome. Check that special attack too. - CycloneFang
Great pokemon escpecially with its speed boost ability
Electric attacks immunity. Great special attack power. Beat that. - CycloneFang
I'll one shot Landorus with my Gyarados or any other water type I have with me a the time
Unfortunately no STAB flying moves
4x weakness to Ice. Hah! Lucky it can learn Rock Slide.
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
Anything that don't resist it's facade will get 2 KO'ed even primal groudon can't tank it very wellV 10 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 birdV 3 Comments
He's not a flying type guys!
He's an awesome Pokemon of of my favorites, but not a flying type so it doesn't belong.
Not a flying type (just because it has wings doesn't make it flying) - PokemonGOSucks
Good PokemonV 5 Comments
Row let is adorable and when it evolves it it a ghost and flying
You spin me right round Abby right round like a (SO on so on) On YouTube search up spinning rowlet but every time it loops it gets darker. Its funny and that's why rowlet is cool. Because it's a meme
Adorable lil flying fighter
I hate it. Why? 4x Ice weakness. - DoggusV 3 Comments
How is he last that would mean he is one of the worst flying types ever? I don't think he is the best but like guys he can wreck a lot of other flying Pokemon. Like really bruh
Why is he number 48! he is the second best lengendary bird in kanto only to zapdos
I don't think Moltres is that good, but it;s better thean Rowlet who is somehow ahead of Moltres ;/
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
He is bird outthere and who doesn't love Pidove?V 1 Comment
Awesome in the anime, great ability and a great move set, this was definitely the go to flying type pokemon in pokemon gold, silver and crystal - ChargedBow
It's looking ability is amazing.
Knows many Psychic/Ghost types - PokemonGOSucks
So coolV 2 Comments
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.
No on else put honchkrow on?
His picture says "Hello. Pleased to meet you. I'm Honchkrow" - PokemonGOSucks
Its stats are good not as good as braivery but his bad ass design just makes him fall for my favourite bird type pokemonV 4 Comments
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.
She is first because she can use defog and get in other places than no one can and she has good attack
She should be right up there with braviary
What is up with this doof ball. Oh my so scaryV 1 Comment
A fifth Generation Pikachu (but it can fly, it's based on flying squirrels) - PokemonGOSucks
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 power.so in conculsotion I think Emolga is a pretty cool pokemon
Jumpluff is cool because when a nerd tries to use his bug pokemon on him it eats the bug pokemon with a flying move
Jumpluff is a straight up baller
BOR-ING! - PokemonGOSucks
Highlight it an click, open URL
Bamboo+Space Shuttle - PokemonGOSucks
Has one of the highest base totals in the game. Ties Arceus as the only two pokemon to have a base total of 720. Very diverse and cool movepool with moves such as taunt and protect. Very cool design. Decent typing. Immune to ghost and ground. Overall great pokemon. Would be on my top five ever!
No one loves him :(
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
It's just a hedgehog... - PokemonGOSucks
PokemonGOSucks Shaymin has a sky form that turns it into a deer and also Jumpluff is not boring you are...V 1 Comment
My buddy for every game, classic and good as a double battle partner.
Powerful, good Pokemon.
He almost killed ash
Easy to get in early game, so useful :)!V 2 Comments
Did you ever notice why ash never had a pidgey? Well it's because if he did he would have won the league easy. Here's why... Pidgeys can carry people that weigh at least 40 kg right? So with this much strength a sand attack from this thing would just one shot all the other Pokemon including Ritchie's butterfree which is normally immune. But with this power pidgey could lift the sand off the ground and boom butterfree is gone. This is just and example of its power it can also 1 shot a mega meatwo which has the highest stat total in the games with guess what move? SAND ATTACK. And if you try to use a accuracy lowering move it doesn't matter it has keen eye. So bam that's a great Pokemon.
To who ever said fastest non legendary Pokemon get with the times
Mega alakazam and jolteon
Fastest non legenendary Pokemon ever
check it out nothing beats its speed
IT'S SO ' FAST, ONE OF THE FASTEST OF ALL POKÉMON. come on, it should make it top ten - PokemonGOSucksV 1 Comment
I ve seen this thing take icicle crash from a mamoswine and live despite its 4x weakness. Gliacor is a boss with monster defenses and access to sword dance. Not to mention the ability poison heal
Rufflet: The Eaglet Pokemon.
Rufflet is loyal and bravely stands up to any opponent, no matter how strong. - SpiritStar123
