    While I do love the old-school Pidgey, Swellow really takes the cake for me. It's not the greatest in terms of stats, but it has the best design out of the lot, I think. I prefer Pokemon that look sleek over bulky ones, so I never really liked Staraptor. Never trained one.

    Even though Staraptor is the best, Spearow and Fearow have the most nostalgic memories with me. I always use one when I do any run with Generation 1.

    It's a toss-up between Staraptor and Fearow. I've had great memories with both, but I'll go with Fearow, because of nostalgia reasons. :P

    Definitely have to Noctowl for this one. It's the only one to learn psychic moves naturally. It was always a good team member to have. I also really liked Pidgeot and Unfezant, but they were both usually replaced later on (Aerodactyl and Braviary).

    Also, you neglected to mention Wingull and Pelipper. I always picked them over Taillow and Swellow.

    While Wingull is able to be caught early in RSE it isn't Normal/Flying.

    Fair enough, I was just wondering, since I've always considered it to be an early bird. I hold it in about the same regard as Pidgeot and Unfezant.

    Swellow's a beast.
    Bloated stat totals are for pussies anyway.

    I've always liked Noctowl. Specially for it's role in the Anime, and because it looks really intelligent. I've always liked owls, not as much as penguins but still.

    I don't know why, but I've always liked Taillow/Swellow more than the others. Not that the others are bad (in fact, I've always loved the bird lines), but Swellow is my favorite.

    Fearow by far; It was always on my team in Gen. 1 (except for Yellow playthroughs) and I feel guilty now that I replaced it with a Clefable in FireRed. I should train one up in White or Black, just for nostalgia purposes...
    New sig pending; for now have some chocolate milk:

    Hoothoot and Noctowl. Great designs, they learn Psychic-type moves and have nice defenses for these kind of early birds. Hypnosis is also useful when you catch Pokemon as well. And not to mention Noctowl is available pretty early on in HG/SS if you are lucky with Headbutt and find an underleveled one. XD

    I was always fond of Pidgey and its family, and since I did grow up with these Pokemon it is perhaps one of my more favourite flying types. Hoothoot/Noctowl would come as a close second as I did always like their design).

    The Pidgey line. Not particularly strong, but I have good memories training one. And Hoothoot/Noctowl too, for the same memories. And I like owls. :p
    I'll keep on moving straight ahead!
