Top 10 best flying Pokemon of all time, ranked

Hundreds of Pokémon have been introduced since the franchise debuted in 1996. A large number of wonderfully designed and powerful Pokémon have been added to these games over the years, so figuring out which of them are the best can sometimes be difficult. While there are many powerful Legendary Flying-type Pokémon out there, if they were in the mix, this list would be nothing but Legendary. Here are the best non-legendary flying Pokémon of all time.

Best Flying Pokemon

10. Aerodactyl

Although Aerodactyl comes last on this list of the best flying Pokémon, the Dino Bird is still worth considering to add to your lineup. The fossil Pokemon has fairly high speed and attack stats, but loses some ground with its low defense stats. If you’re less focused on having the strongest Pokemon and would rather want a cool looking Pokemon with not the best but solid stats, Aerodactyl might be for you.

9. Yanmega

Yanmega is a dual-type Bug and Flying-type Pokémon. While it would be high on a list of the best Bug-type Pokémon, it’s a little further down the totem pole for Flying-type Pokémon. Yanmega zooms through the air with his high speed stat and can pack a punch with his excellent special attack stat. If you want to start early with a common and decent flying Pokemon, Yanmega isn’t a bad choice.

8. Charizard

Charizard is a natural choice for any Fire-type team, but it also lands on this list because it also acts as a Flying-type Pokémon. For that reason, and because of its popularity in the Pokémon community, Charizard would be a great Pokémon to take with you. It stands out from the crowd in areas like speed and special attack stats, but it doesn’t let us down in other aspects either. Combat effectiveness aside, who wouldn’t want a fire-breathing dragon on their team?

7. Crobat

You might not think too much about Crobat since it derives from one of the most basic and common Pokemon, Zubat, but it would be wrong to overlook it. Crobat doesn’t excel in most of its stats, but it ties Aerodactyl to the top spot on this list with its Speed ​​stat. These quick strikes can prove deadly in combat. For those who want to shoot a decent Flying-type Pokémon without going too far out of the way, Crobat is a solid choice.

6. Noivern

While Noivern looks like it’s ready for the kill, it actually has a pretty terrible Attack stat. He makes up for this with moderate defense and health, and his lightning-fast speed stat sets him apart from his opponents. This all applies to the Sound Wave Pokémon, which powers itself by shooting sound waves out of its ears. Don’t get too close to him unless you have some delicious fruit to feed him. Noivern doesn’t particularly like it when people cross his path.

5. Gyarados

You may be wondering why Gyarados is on this list. For those who aren’t blessed with this knowledge, Gyarados is actually both a Water and Flying-type Pokémon. Perhaps the aquatic monster once graced the sky in ancient times. This Pokémon is best at attacking, but it can hold its own in all other areas as well. If you’re concerned about aesthetics, it’s arguably one of the best looking flying Pokemon too.

4. Archaeops

Pokémon players might want to add Archaeops to their lineup just for its vibrant design, but there’s more to this bird than its colorful feathers. You may be surprised to learn that Archeops has the highest Attack stat on this entire list, even higher than Salamence and Dragonite. Be prepared for it to faint quickly, however, as Archeops has relatively low health and defense stats.

3. Togekiss

Don’t be fooled by Togekiss’ charming smile. Though it may seem harmless due to its cute Fairy-type design, Togekiss packs a punch with its high Special Attack stat and one of the highest Special Defense stats of any Flying-type Pokémon. Due to his dual typing of fairy and flying, Togekiss is also extremely versatile and can face many opponents.

2. Salamanders

The second best flying type, Salamence, is beaten only by another pseudo-legendary Dragon-type Pokémon, Dragonite. While Salamence holds its ground and excels beautifully in attack power, it’s losing ground in its defense stat. Players would do well to add Salamence to their Fly-type team, and it can serve dual purpose even on a Dragon-type team.

1. Dragonite

Far from being overrated, Dragonite actually boasts some of the best overall stats among the Flying-type Pokémon. This dragon and fly type monster is one of the most nostalgic and popular as it was the very first pseudo-legendary monster added to the game. That being said, Dragonite has the ability to dominate battles with its high Attack stat, so adding it to a flying team would be in every trainer’s best interest.
