List Rules Vote up your favorite bird-inspired Pokémon.

From the ordinary to the legendary, the best bird Pokémon come in all sorts of different sizes and styles. These elegant feathered-figures are known for being super elusive (well, some - Pidgey's always easy to encounter whether you want to or not), and are definitely some of the coolest (and bravest) characters around.

These flying types are super effective against grass, fighting, and bug Pokémon, which are definitely some of the most common. From vibrant yellow birds like Zapdos to beautiful blue bird Pokémon like Articuno, it definitely helps to have a few winged warriors on your team. And we can’t forget those two-headed bird Pokémon like Doduo. Who’s your favorite bird Pokémon?

This list includes bird Pokémon from Generation 1 to Generation 8, so take a look and vote your favorites up to the top. Don’t see your favorite high-flying bird? Add them to the list.
