Pokemon Type Reviews: FLYING


Continuing our type reviews, we may as well get flying out of the way early, because while I did describe "normal" as essentially a "non-type," it's this one that really qualifies, since the presence of the "flying type" on a Pokemon literally only means that the Pokemon is capable of flight. It's like having a "running type" or "jumping type." If abilities had existed in the Red and Blue era, they might have just given all of these Pokemon "levitate" and called it a day.

As more of a "skill" than a "type," Flying is virtually always paired with something else - at least normal - to indicate that the Pokemon at least has a body to do all that flying with, and seldom ever does anything particularly creative or memorable with the typing itself. These really are just a whole lot of Pokemon who all happen to fly in the air, virtually all of which do so with a conventional set of wings.

But a type it is, and I'll still treat it like any other.

MY TOP SIX FAVORITES:

THE "COOLEST" OVERALL:

This was actually a tough one, but I think we can chalk that up once more to the fact that this is merely "things what also flies," so of course it's going to be highly scattered across totally different themes and types.

THE CUTEST:

Congratulations, Hoothoot, on earning a spot here for both of your types.
