-type Pokémon are Pokémon that can fly and live at high altitudes. They are normally birds or dragon-like (i.e. the -and -type Pokémon, Gyarados). The Flying-type Pokémon has only appeared once on any Pokémon as its sole type – Tornadus. All the other Flying-type Pokémon are dual-types, with the exception of Arceus while holding the Sky Plate. With the exception of Girafarig, Meloetta, Deerling, Sawsbuck and Bibarel, all dual-type Pokémon are Flying. The Flying type has been paired with every type in a Pokémon except for Fighting. Some Flying types, however, cannot use the HM Fly.
