Top Ten Best Flying Type Pokemon

CycloneFang

The Top Ten

1 Staraptor Staraptor

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!

The awesome raptor

2 Crobat Crobat

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.

10th fastest pokemon + confuse + stab acrobatics + stab cross poison + leech life makes this a killing machine against real people.

3 Dragonite Dragonite Dragonite is a character from the Pokémon franchise by Nintendo. It is a dragon and flying type Pokémon created in the first generation of Pokémon. It is a Pseudo Legendary Pokémon.

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!

Beast!

4 Gyarados Gyarados Gyarados is a Pokémon species in Nintendo and Game Freak's Pokémon franchise. It evolves from one of the weakest Pokemon, Magikarp. But Gyarados has a high attack power (as of gen VII, mega Gyarados is ranking #19 for highest attack stat & would rank #10 if legendary Pokemon aren't included), and ...read more.

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

Nice gyarados you got there, it would be a shame IF I USED THUNDERBOLT

Jk, this thing is one heck of a beast. Just teach it earthquake and have it punish the stupid pikachu that tried thunderbolt on it (and failed miserably)

5 Salamence Salamence

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.

Just too good

6 Aerodactyl Aerodactyl

@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.

Almost caught this in Pokémon go

7 Gliscor Gliscor

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

Gliscor is bae

8 Drifblim Drifblim

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.

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.

So forgotten, yet so powerful

His moves are powerful

9 Scyther Scyther

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

This thing has sythes for arms that makes it the best

I love him

10 Talonflame Talonflame

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.

Strongest of em all teach him STAB gale wings and BOOM you beat almost every one and I have to say this syther is not any better than him

The Contenders

11 Hawlucha Hawlucha

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

It's typing, moves, looks, and pvp competition qualities are the best!

12 Pidgeot Pidgeot

Pidgeot is best flying Pokemon for me forever

Out of all the flying types I've used, this one is the most powerful

It's literally bird Jesus. It has 100% accurate hurricanes when mega, as well as heat wave. The only reason he doesn't have focus blast ( which is why he's not in OU ) is because it would make him the ultimate bird of all. His design is awesome and he just happens to be my all time favorite Pokemon. He his truly bird Jesus.

Pidgeot was my first pokemon to catch and the one of the my first pokemon to be OP
Literally he is so OP!

13 Togekiss Togekiss

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

Togekiss is just so awesome I mean he is just beyond words

Cool Pokemon and so CUTE!
And a nice name

14 Flygon Flygon

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

Don't like him. Not strong

15 Rayquaza Rayquaza Rayquaza is a Legendary Pokémon species in Nintendo and Game Freak's Pokémon franchise. It lives in the ozone layer, and frequently stops battles with Kyogre and Groudon, two other Legendaries.

This guy has to stop fights between legendary Pokemon. You gotta be pretty OP to do that

He's beast. But a mega evolution... That's OP ti the max.

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

Guys this pokemon can blast everyone with his hyper beam,hot head,body slam.but I like hoopa unbound latios and latias,arceus lugia deoxys,yvetal xerneas groudon, primal groudon kyogre and primal kyogre.
in correctly this is the last favourite legendary pokemon

16 Zapdos Zapdos

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 amazing

17 Charizard Charizard Charizard, known in Japan as Lizardon, is a Pokémon species in Nintendo and Game Freak's Pokémon franchise.

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

It should be first as it is first in fire type list

18 Braviary Braviary

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

Braviary is super powerful very fast and super good at defending

19 Altaria Altaria

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

Altaria is a beast, and levels up quickly, due to its erratic experience rate.

Well, fizzle-sticks. I meant to vote for Braviary.

20 Skarmory Skarmory

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 5
