Top Ten Best Flying Type Pokemon


The Contenders: Page 2

21 Pelipper Pelipper

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

22 Ho-Oh Ho-Oh

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

Based on the Chinese legendary bird - PokemonGOSucks

23 Yanmega Yanmega

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


24 Lugia Lugia

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 type

25 Landorus Landorus

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.

26 Articuno Articuno

Yes because she is awesome

Based on some flying creature of some sort (Of Iranian origin) - PokemonGOSucks

I love Articuno!

Artiuni is just the best vote here

27 Archeops Archeops

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

28 Swellow Swellow

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

Give this guy a flame orb when it has guts, make sure it has protect, brave bird, facade and u-turn, max speed and attack and you have the embodiment of death itself. Have fun.

29 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

Good Pokemon

30 Yveltal Yveltal Yveltal 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.

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 you

31 Rowlet Rowlet

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. - Doggus

32 Moltres Moltres

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 ;/

33 Unfezant Unfezant

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?

36 Emolga Emolga

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 in conculsotion I think Emolga is a pretty cool pokemon

37 Mandibuzz

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.

38 Honchkrow Honchkrow

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 pokemon

39 Jumpluff Jumpluff

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
