With balloons of course!

Note: This is not just the cards, Flying Pikachu uses ballons in the games to fly. Where he gets them from is unknown however.

Since when is Pikachu weak to Fighting-type Pokemon? :P
anyways, thanks for the fast answer :)
Game Freak consistency for you right there.
Actually, in TCG, many Electric types are weak to Fighting types (which includes all Fighting, Rock and GROUND types). Mostly the once that don't fly. But those that do, don't have a Fighting weakness. So when this Pikachu laid hands on balloons, it lost it's Fighting weakness.

Don't miss the point though. Game Freak consistency is still very existent </3
