Battle properties

Flying-type moves:

Flying-type Pokémon:

Characteristics

Defensively, the Flying type is useful for its immunity to the common Ground-type move Earthquake and its resistance to Fighting. However, the Flying-type's weaknesses aren't rare types and can often offset the benefits of immunity to Ground, especially due to many combination Rock/Ground Pokémon.

Offensively, Flying-type moves are usually only useful when benefited by same-type attack bonus. The types Flying is super effective against aren't common, and being not very effective against Steel is never good.
