Top 10 Favorite Flying and Poison Types

I'm back with more lists. This time, I'll give you my top ten favorite Flying type Pokemon, and my top ten favorite Poison type Pokemon.

Now, I'm not including the Bulbasaur or Budew lines in the Poison type because then it would just not be fair to all the amazing Poison Pokemon out there.

When I think of Flying types, I think of birds. Why? Because since, Tornadus (-T) aside, there aren't any pure Flying types out there, I tend to look at all the non-bird flying types as being more their primary type than Flying (Jumpluff is a Grass type, Charizard is a Fire type, etc.) I'll try to remain bird themed here, but you'll have to excuse me if I don't adhere to that rule religiously.

As usual, no Legendary Pokemon are included and whole families are grouped together unless otherwise stated. Without further adieu, let's go.

Poison


Flying



Well that's it for that. Next time I'll cover Ground, Rock and Normal types. See you guys then.

    I am surprised you left out Venusaur and family, while including a few other Grass/Poison-types. You forgotten about this, or you purposely left it out because that would've been too obvious?

    Great list you have there. I have to agree with you that the odd bird near Braviary looks out of place.

    That's it for now.

    To be honest, at a point I started not liking bird pokemon out of so much "Flying = Bird". I just think that if you have the concept of flight itself as a type, just having birds everywhere, or giving it to ALL birds, seems a bit... boring. So I tend to preffer when they break this mold.

    Mantine, Altaria, Tropius... I think those are all pretty good Flying types. I even like Gyarados as a Flying type, I just imagine the thing doing a chaotic dance in the sky wrecking havoc below.

    And now that I mention Tropius... I'm surprised it's not here either!

    I know what you mean, but I just can't help seeing those Pokemon as more Water/Dragon/Grass than actual Flying types. Attribute it to the fact that there are no pure Flying types out there (Tornadus aside.)

    Interestingly, Tornadus, the only pure Flying type in existence at the moment, was not based on a bird. Then Tornadus-T came along and screwed that up.

    I was actually this close to placing Tropius on the list, but it was between him and Jumpluff and frankly, Jumpluff is cuter.
