    Default Why is flying super-effective against grass?

    Why? wind will rustle a tree's branchs, but it won't knock it over?(Admittedly a tornado would.)

    They also live in trees, which protect them from predators. If anything, birs needs plants to survive. I just think Grass and Flying should be neutral to each other.

    It would help a lot of pokemon. :3

    Maybe because birds eat seeds and stuff?(not all of them,but still.)

    I assumed it was the same reason fighting-type is weak to grass-type: while a fighting type can bust some fancy moves; a flying-type move has the advantage because it attacks from the air.

    Grass-types, plants essentially, are rooted to the ground and thus something that can attack from the air has the advantage.

    And theoretically, a slice of air (like the move Air Slash) could cut grass, or a flower, or a plant like Bellsprout.

    And tornados can rip out trees and other plants..

    I'm agreeing with the 'birds eat seeds theory'.

    Becuase Nintendo have no option but to make grass weaker than any type and over-rate flying.

    I guess because Flying types have the the ability to attack from the air, while Grass types are in most cases limited to the ground.

    And in real life, wind is more powerful than plants.

    Ever notice how trees never can grow as tall by a windy coast as they can when nearer to the center of a continent? Even palm trees that manage to get planted farther away from the coastline. Air also can be very hot or very cold, it especially seems to move faster when it's cold, and ice destroys plant cells, as can excessive heat (fire). Also the thing about tornadoes is true, a plant has to just sit there rooted in the ground while windstorms rip them up then repair themselves slowly afterward.

    Yup, tons of birds are seed or aquatic plant eaters. Also, in reference to roosting in trees and building nests, it just goes to show that birds have a use for plants, and take advantage of them. I figure it's the same reason grass is super-effective against water.

    If it's a small flame, it's probably go out. A big flame will probably get bigger.
    This is possibly why they're neutral.

    This is some good logic.

    In the Netherlands we have a saying "high trees catch a lot of wind."

    That always seemed the reason for me. Although I don't really get it either.
