PokéBase - Pokémon Q&A

I’m about to fight Clair. My current Fly user is Togetic, but I don’t know how useful it will be until it evolves and it has a Jolly nature, which lowers its Special Attack

I don’t know if it’s worth using it. What should I do? My current team is:

Haunter (need to find an opportunity to evolve it)
Heracross I’m currently training up. I also have a Sudowoodo who is closer to my current levels.

I wanted to know your opinions on what I should do? I want to avoid HM slaves, as Fly is something I’m going to be using all the time and I want to have it on me at all times. Should I keep my Togetic or exchange it?

My best guess would be Fearow because you can get a Spearow that gains boosted experience.
In SS, fly's base power is 90, which is actually pretty good. The only flying attacks that are stronger are sky attack, aeroblast, and brave bird, and I don't consider sky attack "better" because it gives free turns to the opponent.

/ds4 gen<3,fly,all
Aerodactyl, Articuno, Charizard, Crobat, Delibird, Dodrio, Doduo, Dragonite, Farfetch'd, Fearow, Golbat, Ho-Oh, Hoothoot, Lugia, Mew, Moltres, Murkrow, Noctowl, Pidgeot, Pidgeotto, Pidgey, Skarmory, Smeargle, Spearow, Togetic, Xatu, Zapdos, Zubat

/ds4 gen<3,aeroblast,all
Lugia, Smeargle

/ds4 gen<3,brave bird,all
Crobat, Dodrio, Doduo, Golbat, Ho-Oh, Murkrow, Pidgeot, Pidgeotto, Pidgey, Skarmory, Smeargle, Zubat

So how exactly do "Most of the pokémons that can learn fly also can learn better flying moves"?

Noctowl or Crobat are excellent choices for flying types in HG & SS.

Noctowl will probably be easier to obtain than Crobat considering where you are currently in game.

But honestly use whichever Pokemon helps you best for your team.

Good luck in the fight with Clair.

Hope I was of some help.

How is Noctowl better than Fearow?
Pigot, is a good one.  I have always use pigot a very long time.
How is Pidgeot better than Fearow?
@sumwun I think these 2 guys come before spearow, but I am not sure. Also for some reason a lot of people don't like fearow to much
