{{Types}}
Notable Trainers that specialize in the Flying type include [[Falkner]] of [[Violet City]] and [[Winona]] of [[Fortree City]], both being [[Gym Leader]]s.
+
The '''Flying type''' (Japanese: '''ひこうタイプ''' ''Flying type'') is one of the eighteen [[type]]s. Prior to [[Generation IV#Advances in gameplay|changes in Generation IV]], all damaging Flying-type moves were [[physical move|physical]], but they may now also be [[special move|special]] depending on the attack.
 
This type is the only one of the seventeen that is never seen as a pure type, with the exception of the use of {{m|Conversion}}-like [[move]]s and [[Ability|abilities]] such as {{a|Multitype}} and {{a|Color Change}}. Each other type, besides the {{t|Fighting}} type, has also been paired with the Flying type on at least one Pokémon.

Flying-type Pokémon are not considered [[grounded]] for effects that affect grounded Pokémon (e.g. [[entry hazards]]).

==Characteristics==
 
==Characteristics==
Defensively, the Flying type is useful for its immunity to the common {{type2|Ground}} move {{m|Earthquake}} and its resistance to {{t|Fighting}}. However, the Flying type's weaknesses aren't uncommon and can often offset the benefits of immunity to Ground, especially due to many dual-type {{2t|Rock|Ground}} Pokémon. However, most Flying-types have access to {{m|Roost}}, allowing them to restore their health. Flying-types usually have below average defense stats, making them vulnerable to most physical attacks, super effective or not.
+
===Defense===
  +
In addition to being immune to {{type|Ground}} attacks, Flying-type Pokémon are unaffected by {{m|Rototiller}} and all [[entry hazard]]s (except {{m|Stealth Rock}}). Flying-type Pokémon also cannot absorb {{m|Toxic Spikes}} simply by switching in and do not receive the benefits from [[terrain]]s (though they can still use Seeds). These immunities, as well as the immunity to {{a|Arena Trap}}, are removed when a Flying-type Pokémon is [[grounded]] by {{m|Ingrain}}, {{m|Gravity}}, {{m|Smack Down}}, or {{m|Thousand Arrows}}.
   
Offensively, Flying-type moves are usually only useful when benefited by [[same-type attack bonus]] and for their strength against {{type2|Fighting}}. The types Flying is {{DL|Damage modification|super effective}} against aren't common. In their favor though, most fully evolved Flying-types have above-average {{Stat|Attack}} and {{Stat|Speed}} [[stats]]. However, having below average {{Stat|Special Attack}} makes such moves as {{m|Air Cutter}} and {{m|Air Slash}} almost useless, unless used by Flying-type outliers with high Special Attack such as Togekiss or Yanmega.
+
When a Flying-type uses {{m|Roost}}, it temporarily loses its Flying type for a turn. If a pure Flying-type Pokémon uses Roost, then it will become a {{t|???}} type in [[Generation IV]] and a {{t|Normal}} type in [[Generation V]] onward.
   
When used in {{pkmn|Contest}}s, Flying-type moves typically become [[Cool Contest|Cool]] moves, but can also be of the other four Contest types, excluding [[Tough Contest|Tough]].
+
Flying-type Pokémon, on average, have the highest {{stat|Speed}} of all Pokémon and of fully-evolved Pokémon. <!--As of Generation 7-->
  +
  +
===Offense===
  +
Flying-type attacks are very powerful combined with some other attacking types, most notably {{t|Ground}}. Ground is strong against every type that resists Flying, and vice versa, so this combination is resisted only by Flying-type Pokémon whose other type resists Flying (such as an {{t|Electric}} Flying Pokémon).
  +
  +
The effectiveness of the move {{m|Flying Press}} is calculated by multiplying the effectiveness of its move type (usually {{t|Fighting}}) and the Flying type.
  +
  +
===Contest properties===
  +
In {{pkmn|Contest}}s, Flying-type moves are typically {{OBP|Cool|condition}} moves.
   
 
==Pokémon==
 
==Pokémon==
In total, there are sixty-five Pokémon with the Flying type; 44 are fully evolved.
+
As of Generation VII, there are 101 Flying-type Pokémon or 12.5% of all Pokémon (counting those that are Flying-type in at least one of their [[List of Pokémon with form differences|forms]]), making it the third most common type. Every other type has been paired up with the Flying type at least once.

===Interacting with the Flying type===
  +
A Pokémon with {{a|Color Change}}, {{a|Protean}}, {{a|Imposter}}, {{a|RKS System}}, or {{a|Multitype}} will become a Flying-type Pokémon if (respectively) it is hit with a Flying-type move, uses a Flying-type move, is sent out against a Flying-type opponent, is holding a [[Flying Memory]], or is holding a [[Sky Plate]] or [[Flyinium Z]].
  +
  +
Flying-type Pokémon are immune to {{a|Arena Trap}}.

==Trivia==
 
==Trivia==
* There are no pure Flying-type Pokémon. No Pokémon has Flying as its primary type, either.
+
* Generations {{Gen|I}}, {{Gen|II}}, and {{Gen|V}} introduced more Flying-type Pokémon than any other generation, each with {{tt|19|including Rotom's Fan form in Gen V}}. [[Generation VI]] and [[Generation VII]] introduced the fewest Flying-type Pokémon, with eight each.
* The lack of pure or primary Flying type Pokémon may refer to the fact that no creature in real life purely or primarly flies, either. Every creature capable of flight in real life can also halt the flight to do other things such as rest or hunt prey.
+
* Generations I and {{Gen|IV}} introduced more Flying-type moves than any other generation, with seven. Generation II introduced the fewest Flying-type moves, with only {{m|Aeroblast|one}}.
* With the {{DL|Plate|Sky Plate}} held, the legendary Pokémon {{p|Arceus}} is the only Pokémon capable of becoming a pure Flying-type outside of battle.
+
* Flying was the last type to receive:
* Flying is the only type whose immunity can be canceled by an item, the {{DL|In-battle effect item|Iron Ball}}, instead of only via a move.
+
** A single-typed Pokémon, only receiving one with {{p|Tornadus}} in Generation V.
* The Flying type has been paired with every other type, except the {{t|Fighting}} type.
+
** A dual-typed Pokémon with its type as the primary type, only receiving one with {{p|Noibat}} and {{p|Noivern}} in Generation VI.
** Although Normal is not typically paired up with other types, it is the most common type paired with Flying.
+
* All damage-dealing Flying-type moves except {{m|Air Cutter}} can hit non-adjacent Pokémon in [[Triple Battle]]s.
* Currently, all Pokémon with a double weakness to {{type2|Rock}} moves are part Flying-type.
+
* All Flying-type moves are eligible to be used in [[Sky Battle]]s.
* Pokémon with Normal/Flying, Water/Flying and Bug/Flying type combinations have been introduced in every generation so far.
 
* Strangely, all types that resist Flying (Electric, Rock and Steel) are weak to Ground and all types that resist Ground ( Bug and Grass) are weak to Flying.
 
* With the introduction of {{p|Shaymin}}'s Sky Forme, each generation has introduced at least one part-Flying legendary Pokémon.
 
* There has been a Flying-type Pokémon introduced in every generation whose name begins with the letters M and S.
 
* For each possible [[Elemental type|type]] combination with a double weakness to Flying there is at least one Pokémon with that type combination. For example: {{t|Bug}}/{{t|Grass}}: {{p|Paras}}, {{t|Bug}}/{{t|Fighting}}: {{p|Heracross}}, Grass/Fighting: {{p|Breloom}}. The same is true of {{t|Water}} and {{t|Grass}}.
 
* Several Flying-type moves have nothing to do with the action of flying. Several of them are actually based on what birds can do. Also, the glitch Pokémon [[Missingno.]] is of the Bird Type. This may explain why the {{type2|Bird}} is in the coding of the [[Generation I]] and [[Generation II|II]] games.

The Flying type (Japanese: ひこうタイプ Flying type) is one of the eighteen types. Prior to changes in Generation IV, all damaging Flying-type moves were physical, but they may now also be special depending on the attack.

Characteristics

Defense

In addition to being immune to Ground-type attacks, Flying-type Pokémon are unaffected by Rototiller and all entry hazards (except Stealth Rock). Flying-type Pokémon also cannot absorb Toxic Spikes simply by switching in and do not receive the benefits from terrains (though they can still use Seeds). These immunities, as well as the immunity to Arena Trap, are removed when a Flying-type Pokémon is grounded by Ingrain, Gravity, Smack Down, or Thousand Arrows.

When a Flying-type uses Roost, it temporarily loses its Flying type for a turn. If a pure Flying-type Pokémon uses Roost, then it will become a ??? type in Generation IV and a Normal type in Generation V onward.

Flying-type Pokémon, on average, have the highest Speed of all Pokémon and of fully-evolved Pokémon.

Offense

Flying-type attacks are very powerful combined with some other attacking types, most notably Ground. Ground is strong against every type that resists Flying, and vice versa, so this combination is resisted only by Flying-type Pokémon whose other type resists Flying (such as an Electric Flying Pokémon).

The effectiveness of the move Flying Press is calculated by multiplying the effectiveness of its move type (usually Fighting) and the Flying type.

Contest properties

In Contests, Flying-type moves are typically Cool moves.

Pokémon

As of Generation VII, there are 101 Flying-type Pokémon or 12.5% of all Pokémon (counting those that are Flying-type in at least one of their forms), making it the third most common type. Every other type has been paired up with the Flying type at least once.
