Flying (type)

Most Flying-type Pokémon are based on birds or insects, along with a few more mythical creatures like dragons.

Nearly every Flying-type has Flying as the secondary type, usually with Normal; there is only one pure Flying Pokémon: the legendary Pokémon, Tornadus. As of Generation 6, the type has also been paired with every other type.
