What Beats Flying Type Pokemon?

Pokemon, as we all know, is all about training your pocket monsters to be the very best, like no one ever was. You need to catch, train, battle, and evolve them in order to prove your mastery in the world. Now, with Sun and Moon’s release, things are no different! You will still have specific types to fight with, and they each have their own strengths and weaknesses. Let’s talk about Flying Pokemon!

Flying is incredibly strong against these types in particular:


  • Grass
  • Fighting
  • Bug

Annihilate a Caterpie or a Machop with some flying attack and you will have your battle all wrapped up with those super effective moves. These trusty bird-type Pokemon aren’t just good for getting around! Here’s a list of some notable attacks you can do:

  • Peck
  • Pluck
  • Fly
  • Aerial Ace
  • Tailwind
  • Gust
  • Hurricane

However, you’ll need to protect your flying Pokemon from the following types that they’re weak against:

  • Electric
  • Rock
  • Steel

Yes, your Pidgeot will need to high-tail it out of the battle if there’s any Geodude or Pikachu out. Make sure that you keep this in mind. Don’t risk them fainting on you.

Here are some of the most popular Pokemon of this type:

  • Pidgey, Pidgeotto, Pidgeot
  • Spearow, Fearow
  • Rufflet, Braviary
  • Rowlet, Dartrix, Decidueye
  • Pikipek, Trumbeak, Toucannon
  • Yveltal

That’s about all the information you need to go out there and win all of your battles! For more help with Pokemon Sun and Moon, be sure to check out Twinfinite’s wiki for guides and tips!
