There are so many options but I don't know which one to choose.

So I would like to know what is the best to use on my team.
(please choose an easier flyer to get)

This is only for gen 5.... So why did you close?
@~BlazingStaraptor~

The previous title of the question was what is a good Pokémon to use as a fly user in B2W2, and it was closed 12 hours ago, the title was edited 3 hours later, so technically, this question shouldn’t have been closed
I've reopened it, due to the titles being edited to be more different from each other.

The fully evolved Pokemon in Black 2 that can learn Fly are: Unfezant, Crobat, Swoobat, Braviary, Mandibuzz, Sigilyph, Flygon, Archeops, Swanna, Volcarona, Tornadus, Thundurus, Landorus, Skarmory, Drifblim, Pelipper, Altaria, Delibird, Golurk, Hydreigon, Tropius, Reshiram, Zekrom, Kyurem, and Genesect.

You'll probably want it to have STAB, so this leaves us with: Unfezant, Crobat, Swoobat, Braviary, Mandibuzz, Sigilyph, Archeops, Swanna, Tornadus, Thundurus, Landorus, Skarmory, Drifblim, Pelipper, Altaria, Delibird, and Tropius.

Of these, many are not convenient to get, due to their location or their method of evolution. Eliminating those leaves us with: Unfezant, Sigilyph, and Swanna. Let's weight them against each other.

Unfezant

Pros
- Unfezant is available extremely early, with Pidove being accessible on the first few routes, and Tranquill practically everywhere else.
- It's quite fast and has a solid Attack stat, meaning it's a solid pick for Fly.
- It can learn things like U-turn, Quick Attack, and Return for its other moves.

Cons
- It doesn't have a very good level up pool, and the TMs it gets are pretty mediocre most of the time.
- It's rather frail, so it won't be surviving a lot of hits.

Sigilyph

Pros
- It's found at a decent point in the game, just after the third Gym.
- Wonder Skin and Magic Guard are both very solid Abilities.
- Quite fast and has a nice Special Attack.
- Learns other moves like Ice Beam, Shadow Ball, Psychic, Energy Ball, Air Slash, Reflect... the list goes on.

Cons
- It's really a far better special attacker, with a higher base stat and better special attacks.
- Quite frail.
- Absolutely pitiful Attack stat will leave it missing out on the KO if you use Fly in battle.

Swanna

Pros
- Ducklett is found just before the Ground type leader, meaning that with a bit of grinding, you can bring in a powerful Swanna to combat him.
- Quite fast.
- Ducklett has a 100% encounter rate on Driftveil Drawbridge.
- Swanna can also learn Surf and Dive, making it a great HM slave.

Cons
- Swanna isn't that great in battle, due to below average stats in everything except Speed.
- It has a terrible movepool.
- The amount of grinding you would need to have one before Clay is a bit tedious.


Overall, I would say either Unfezant or Swanna. Unfezant is available early and uses Fly very well, while Swanna also gets Surf, which allows it to function as a reliable HM slave.

Hope I helped!

Thanks! I'm going to unfezant myself, since I have a samurott for surf and maybe dive.
