List Rules Vote for your favorite Flying Pokemon, even if it's only half Flying or 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.

Scaarfii added Deserts -

Flygon resembles a slightly insectoid, bipedal dragon. It is primarily light green and has a pair of large rhombus-shaped wings with a red trim, toeless hind legs, and skinny arms with three-clawed hands. Its tail has several dark green stripes and three small green rhombus shapes with red trims at the end. It has large eyes, and a pair of green antennae that point back. The eyes have red covers that prevent sand from getting into its eyes. With its wings, it kicks up sandstorms to hide itself. Its wings make a "singing" sound when they are flapped, earning Flygon the name "The Desert Spirit". It lives in the desert.
