What are the weaknesses of flying-type Pokémon?


To share :


To remember:

  • Pokémon of the Flight type are vulnerable to attacks of the Electrik, Rock and Ice types, but are resistant to attacks of the Fighting, Insect and Plant types.
  • The specific characteristics of Flight-type Pokémon include the ability to fly and a notable resistance to Ground-type attacks.
  • Despite their weak defense, Pokémon of the Flight type possess speed and offensive abilities that are effective against certain types, such as Pokémon of the Plant, Insect and Fight types.

Playing Pokémon requires a certain level of analysis to succeed in battle. The game requires players to choose their Pokémon types according to their opponents' attack and defense capabilities. So, to gain the upper hand in a battle, you need to try to do as much damage as possible with each strike. Once your attack is right where it should be, you'll be encouraged by a little message saying "that's super effective".

In this article, we'll be talking about Pokémon of the Vol type, including their main weaknesses. What's more, you'll also discover the specific characteristics of this type of Pokémon, as well as its greatest advantages!

The Flight-type Pokémon is one of the eighteen types in the main series, which has been integrated since the first generation. Vol-type Pokémon are classified as Colorless types in the card game.

In the entire franchise, there are only a few pure Flight-type Pokémon. So, most of this category is full of dual types. Among the most common combinations are Vol/normal.

Who beats Vol-type Pokémon?

Not all Flight-type Pokémon can fly, and conversely, not all Pokémon that fly are Flight-type Pokémon. However, all Flight-type Pokémon have two features in common: a sensory organ capable of detecting the magnetic field and an effect similar to the special ability Levitation.

Type Électrik

The magnetic field generated by type electrik disturbs Vol-type Pokémon and inflicts extra damage.

Characteristics of Flying-type Pokémon

Generally, these are Pokémon with the potential to fly through the air, the fastest of which is Mega-Dracaufeu Y. In terms of speed, it's Hawlucha which holds first place with a rating of 118. In all qualities, Ninjask notably has the most base points, at 160. Up to and including the third generation, the Flight-type Pokémon was ranked physical.

They use their wings and beaks extensively to show off their natural abilities against the Combat types. The only drawback with Flight types is that their defence doesn't quite measure up to deal with the attacks of opponents.

Flying-type Pokémon have a lack of vigilance against ground attacks unless they are armed with an Iron Bullet using Anti-Air, Myria-Arrows, and Gravity skills. In addition, equipping them with an Iron Ball from a Magic Trick or Sleight of Hand also allows them to be more sensitive to attacks from Ground-type Pokémon.

Unlike Sol types, Field bonuses are not granted to Vol-type Pokémon.

 On the offensive side, the Sol type can team up with the Sol type to take on these three tough opponents. Prior to the arrival of the fifth generation, the Flight type frequently teamed up with either the type Normalor the Insect type.
