List Rules Vote for your favorite flying Pokemon, even if it's only half flying or a secondary flying type.

List of the best Flying Pokemon, ranked by Pokemon Masters like you. These top Flying type Pokemon come from every generation, so you can vote on everything from Pidgeot to Lugia. Please note these Pokemon aren't all pure Flying types, so if a monster is half or secondary flying they will still be included here. Flying types are ok defensively since they're immune to ground types, and most can recover health with roost.

If you want to know, "What is the best Flying Pokemon?" or "What is the greatest Flying type Pokemon?" then this list will answer your questions. If you think the top Flying Pokemon is missing from this list, add it to the bottom so others can vote on it as well.
