View Full Version : Who is your team's 'flyer'?

Pages : [1] 2 3 4

7th March 2009, 11:01 PM
I have little doubt that Fly is the most frequently used HM move, so it's important to have a Pokémon on your team at all times that can use it to carry you around Sinnoh. So who has the honour? My current flyer is Charizard. But since I had to wait until it evolved before it could learn Fly, I had a lowly Golbat provide transportation in the meantime.

7th March 2009, 11:22 PM
My flyer is Gyarados....oh wait....it can't learn fly....well, atleast it tries anyway. ;)

7th March 2009, 11:24 PM
Haha. XD
So true, so true...

Fly is probably the only HM move I actually use these days. XD
My team's Flyer tends to alternate... depending on who I'm training, which is usually just between 4 Pokemon.

The three legendary birds (migrated to my Pearl from FireRed. X3) and my Pidgeotto Shiner (Pidgeotto because it's somuch cooler looking than Pidgeot sprite-wise. XD)

Currently, I've got my Moltres at all times... At least until it gets to lvl 70.
Then it'll be Articuno's turn. Maybe Pidgeotto. :3

Chatot, at my friend's recommendation. I hoped that I'd be able to get near a Skarmory, but this will have to do. It isn't bad, and if I run on a Legendary, I know who to call for the purpose of putting the Legendary down.

I usually use the first pokemon I caught in Pearl, my Starly, now a Staraptor. I have another Staraptor that hatched from this one, but I use it for online battles so it doesn't know Fly.

7th March 2009, 11:54 PM
I've been using the same salamence as my flier since I first evolved one back in ruby. He has terrible IVs and nature, and I never bothered to even attempt to EV train him, but it's just been like a tradition to have him in my party carting my butt around :P

8th March 2009, 12:16 AM
I used Starraptor in Diamond, but I think i'll be different in Platinum and get Altaria.

8th March 2009, 12:18 AM
Usually just a Staraptor that I keep in my PC.

8th March 2009, 1:07 AM
I have a Fearow, but don't get me wrong, he's level 85.

8th March 2009, 1:24 AM
I use a Pelipper for his ability to learn both Fly and Surf.

8th March 2009, 1:28 AM
I gave fly to my staraptor to get through the game as fast as I could

Dragon Rules
8th March 2009, 1:30 AM
Staraptor's my flyer.

8th March 2009, 1:39 AM
My shiny Crobat :3

Shadow Tepi 8
8th March 2009, 1:50 AM
Usually it's my Staraptor but I've used Swellow and Salamence as well.

8th March 2009, 3:02 AM
Definitley my Staraptor, but sometimes I like to use my Farfetche'd to fly around with.

8th March 2009, 3:08 AM
drifblim, and i also find the move helpfull in double battles.

Lord Ike
8th March 2009, 3:35 AM
I use a Pelipper for his ability to learn both Fly and Surf.
Yeah, same here. Poor Pelipper is essentially an HM slave, like my old flyer Tropius. :D

8th March 2009, 3:40 AM
Rayquaza ftw. i have two, one that i use competitively and the other which i use to train pokemon and as my fly pokemon. it has the move when you catch so i just thought, that i might as well use it. i mean, it wants to fly, why stop it from doing so.

8th March 2009, 3:45 AM
Dragonite is my flyer :)

8th March 2009, 3:49 AM
I use Staraptor.

8th March 2009, 4:04 AM
On Pearl I use my lv 100 Altaria who also knows Sing & on Diamond I use my Crobat lv 66 or 67 who I've raised from a lil zubat

8th March 2009, 4:06 AM
In Pearl, I was thinking of using a Honchkrow, but it's too slow and fragile, so I made that my Flyer.

In Diamond, I made Staraptor my Flyer.

8th March 2009, 4:14 AM
Drifblim is in charge of fly for my team

8th March 2009, 4:24 AM
I have a Staraptor in my Pearl version(yeah I know, so original. But usually I make the first bird you come across in each version my main flyer)

Although, I also use a Skarmory as my other one when I'm leveling up weaker Pokemon, and a few others.

.... I had a flying Dodrio in my Sapphire, though, still questioned how that worked exactly XD

8th March 2009, 4:24 AM
I use Latias as my flyer :D
I only need 3 moves on it anyway, so I can have the last moveslot for Fly.

8th March 2009, 4:46 AM
Mine is a level 2 starly named Homeslice.

8th March 2009, 5:09 AM
I really like Starapter a lot, so I tend to use that as my flyer.

Shiny Noctowl
8th March 2009, 5:13 AM
I use Skarmory as my flyer. This is because Skarmory and Bibarel together can learn all 8 HMs:

Skarmory: Cut, Fly, Defog, Rock Smash
Bibarel: Surf, Strength, Waterfall, Rock Climb

8th March 2009, 5:19 AM
basically every singly flying type I own. But seriously though, in Pearl first time it was Staraptor (shocker!) and in the second time it was Drifblim.

8th March 2009, 5:25 AM
Salamence is my flyer. i know, very Cliche... but i think hes cool.

8th March 2009, 5:29 AM
I use Staraptor about 97% of the time as my flier. The rare 3 percent is Salamence.

8th March 2009, 5:37 AM
Drifblim for the main storyline, Flygon for the aftergame, And Latios for fun.

8th March 2009, 6:05 AM
On my new Diamond file, its my Pelliper, mainly because it can learn Fly, Surf, and Defog, while my Bibarel knows Strength, Rock Smash, Rock Climb, and Cut.

8th March 2009, 6:09 AM
I dunno, I'll use any Pokemon with wings really.
Usually it's Pidgeot or Staraptor, some times my Charizard.

8th March 2009, 6:11 AM
I use my otherwise UT MYSTRY Mew for Fly. Most HMs are useless in battle, so I keep them to Trophy Pokemon. I'd much rather use a level 10 Mew that will never see a battle in its life to a Level 100 Un-Eved Crobat with crap moves.

8th March 2009, 6:43 AM
I seriously walk almost everywhere in the game.

But if I need to go to the Battle Island or Snowpoint or something, its my Delibird or Zubat.

Blk Charizard
8th March 2009, 6:45 AM
I used Staraptor, but now I mainly use my shiny Dodrio to fly around.

8th March 2009, 6:52 AM
I use Staraptor, as I actually liked it, so, if was going to take a spot, it might as well be as useful as it can be.

8th March 2009, 7:20 AM
i use moltres 10% of the time when i don't use crobat lol


8th March 2009, 7:24 AM
Does anybody use Fly competitively?
It's power is 90 IN D/P and grants immunity (besides thunder) for one turn...
But I guess it's risky as the opponent could switch....
If you could out speed the opponent, you would be a hard target....

Also, my flier is also Charizard....

8th March 2009, 7:33 AM
Always Staraptor

Nate Gillson
8th March 2009, 7:37 AM
My flyer is is none other than my trusty ol staraptor.

8th March 2009, 7:44 AM

8th March 2009, 7:46 AM
First it was Charap the Chatot. Then after the league, it was Pidgeot. I vary between him and Rayquaza now.

8th March 2009, 7:50 AM
My LV. 100 Staraptopr, its been in my team more then any other in any game!!!

Too bad its modest nature...

8th March 2009, 8:00 AM
First it was Charap the Chatot. Then after the league, it was Pidgeot. I vary between him and Rayquaza now.

thats freaky. all of that is exactly the same for me

latios reborn
8th March 2009, 8:07 AM
I use Latias as my flyer :D
I only need 3 moves on it anyway, so I can have the last moveslot for Fly.

I'm exactly the same..

8th March 2009, 9:13 AM
For adventure mode, I used Staraptor. But now, I use a Pidgeot to fly around :)

8th March 2009, 10:55 AM
During the early stages of DP, I used Drifblim (because, of course, I like to be different and use Pokemon completely different to everyone else - I've never sued a Staraptor before lol) but after the League I migrated my trusty Flygon and it's been flying me around. Good old STREAMLINE. Lol.

Penguinist Trainer
8th March 2009, 11:24 AM
I used to use an HM slave Staravia, but once I beat the elite four, I imported my Rayquaza and leveled him to 100 and currently use it as my personal flyer.

Anyone 4 Buttons?
8th March 2009, 11:51 AM
It was Staraptor (surprise!) and he does still get me around occasionally. However, more often than not, it is my team Latias.

8th March 2009, 2:12 PM
I use Tropius - with a Tropius and a Bibarel, you have all 8 HMs:

Rock Smash
Rock Climb


8th March 2009, 2:18 PM
I have three flyers. Noctowl, who is about lv.62, is supposed to be my team flyer. However, I am currently training Roserade, Luxray, Manectric and Noctowl with the pokerus. So as of this moment I am using good ol' Aerodactyl, who already lost pokerus. Before I used Rayquaza occasionally, but I rarely use him as he has pokerus and I dislike using legendaries. So Noctowl and Aerodactyl make up my flyers.

Anyone 4 Buttons?
8th March 2009, 2:26 PM
I use Tropius - with a Tropius and a Bibarel, you have all 8 HMs:

Rock Smash
Rock Climb


So you do. I never noticed that! Thanks for the info.

8th March 2009, 4:28 PM
In Diamond, I have Staraptor for my flyer.

In Platinum, it's going to be Honchcrow.

8th March 2009, 4:53 PM
The good ol flyer since yellow....Charizard...normal ivs standars ev hardy nature...it reminds me of the old days.

8th March 2009, 5:01 PM
Level 73 Crobat. He's strong and convenient.

8th March 2009, 5:04 PM
Starptor, both in Platinum and Diamond.
Swellow in Emerald.

8th March 2009, 5:17 PM
Originality: Staraptor.

8th March 2009, 5:39 PM
Depending on My party there are a few.


those are proboaly the main four

8th March 2009, 6:02 PM
I used to use Starapter until my friend traded my Rayquaza back to me.

8th March 2009, 6:09 PM
My Staraptor is the one that uses Fly for me most of the time, though I also have a Pidgeot that knows Fly.

8th March 2009, 7:50 PM
Staraptor, Honchkrow, Crobat, Rayquaza and Articuno

9th March 2009, 7:37 AM
My Tropius is the only Pokémon I have that knows fly.

9th March 2009, 2:31 PM
I tend to use anything. However my staraptor is my most common flyer. Actually my staraptor managed to get me an expert belt on route 222.

Mariku -- kitten
9th March 2009, 2:50 PM
My Salamance. I used Togekiss before.

In Platinum, I'm not even using fly ._.

9th March 2009, 8:50 PM

9th March 2009, 8:52 PM
I actually Alternate Between a Swellow and an Altaria.

9th March 2009, 8:56 PM

9th March 2009, 9:03 PM
Fly is the second most used HM in my game. My flier is my trusted Pidgeot. I always used Pidgeot as my flier

9th March 2009, 9:13 PM
Pidgeot since r/b

9th March 2009, 9:18 PM
Starraptor and Flygon are the ones that frequently uses fly in my game.

9th March 2009, 9:23 PM
I use Crobat to fly me from place to place.

10th March 2009, 12:10 AM
My Starly (AKA, DefogFlyer) is both my Flyer and Defog user, hence its Nickname

10th March 2009, 12:13 AM
HM slave Skarmory (Fly, Rock Smash, Defog, Cut).

10th March 2009, 2:39 AM
A Straptor named Zefi. And she's STRONG.

Sapphire Phoenix
10th March 2009, 2:46 AM
My Japanese Lv. 100 Giratina, which I happened to have caught over two years ago... and he's been my flier ever since :/

10th March 2009, 6:42 PM
My newest addtion to my flyer group is a drifblim i got in a trade

10th March 2009, 9:47 PM
Staraptor, I remember a time I was at pal-park and I decided to check the guy who gives you belts and he wanted 96 and Raptor was. It was so perfect :D.

Shiny Milotic
10th March 2009, 9:49 PM
I used Staraptor as pretty much everyone did but now I have some Japanese EVD Dragonite I got off the GTS.

10th March 2009, 9:59 PM
i switch between 3 fliers which are my staraptor shiny aerodactly and shiny crobat

Missingno. Master
10th March 2009, 10:03 PM
Used to be Drifblim until I transferred by main team from Emerald- Castform, Linoone, Pelipper, Shiftry, Swampert, and Wynaut. Now Pelipper's my flyer.

12th March 2009, 9:24 PM
Hmm let's see.......

Blue: Dragonite
Silver: Charizard
Crystal: Moltres
Sapphire: Tropius
Emerald: Rayquaza
Diamond: Honchcrow

12th March 2009, 11:23 PM
Currently, it's Honchkrow. But, I have used any number of them. Pidgeot, Fearow, Dodrio, Farfetch'd, and it goes on...

12th March 2009, 11:44 PM
I have little doubt that Fly is the most frequently used HM move,

Well, that is debatable. It could be surf or waterfall that is used most, esp. in competitive play. But I get your point. My flier changes between a Crobat and a Fearow.

13th March 2009, 12:37 PM
I have a Staraptor called Alex and a Chatot called Jillian as my flyers :)

Empoleon Bonaparte
13th March 2009, 10:06 PM
On my Diamond, I hacked the game so that I could teach Magikarp Fly. MWHAHAHA DIE STUPID GRASS-TYPES!!

On my Pearl, it's just a Fearow, 'cause all my other Pokés are on Ranch and I'm too lazy to get them back ;D

14th March 2009, 10:25 AM
Mine is my Dragonite.

14th March 2009, 12:56 PM
I use my Latias. I think fly is a bad attack, but a useful HM. The reason I made my Latias learn it is to save my Sceptile from bugs. ;254; ;380;

14th March 2009, 1:12 PM
Whatever flyer is around. My team builds slowly throughout the game so there's always a slot for a plebeian.

14th March 2009, 1:22 PM
I have 2 flyers in Pearl. Staraptor was my flyer until i tranfered over pokemon. Now i use my XD salamence.

14th March 2009, 1:27 PM
It's mostly my Charizard, Scorcher.

I have other Pokémon with Fly, but I choose Charizard most of the time.

14th March 2009, 2:34 PM
Dragonite if i only need fly. Otherwise HM slave skarmory (teamed with bibarel). Also Dragonite's fly is really good in battle so yeah im happy.

Ultimate Glalie
14th March 2009, 6:42 PM
I use my Drifblim. :)

Fire Storm
14th March 2009, 6:48 PM
Throughout the game it was Staraptor, but I've got a Tropius full of HM's for getting around. I'll probably trade a low level Tropius over for Platinum as well -- It's quite handy.

Cosmic Kid
14th March 2009, 6:54 PM
i use pelipper because he can fly surf and defog

14th March 2009, 7:05 PM
Staraptor, obviously.

14th March 2009, 7:13 PM
Honchkrow for me. Swellow in my Emerald.

14th March 2009, 7:30 PM
Staraptor in the sky with diamonds.

15th March 2009, 2:44 AM
Diamond#1- Staraptor (Unplanned)
Diamond#2- Honchkrow (planned)
Pearl- Drifblim (Planned)
Platinum- Togekiss (Planned)
In RSE Rayquaza (various others before obtaining)
LG- Charizard and FR- Skarmory

15th March 2009, 3:12 PM
Switches between Pelipper and my Endeavour+Sash Starly.

15th March 2009, 3:27 PM
Always has been since 3rd gen my lv. 62 Crobat.

freddo from sinnoh
15th March 2009, 3:54 PM
My hacked Mew I got off of the GTS.

15th March 2009, 6:24 PM
Chatot. It also has Sing which can help with catching lower-level Pokemon that I'd kill with one of my attacks.

16th March 2009, 10:14 PM
I'm currently using an Aerodactyl that knows fly, defog, rock smash and strength

16th March 2009, 10:18 PM
Tropius w/ Fly, Rock Smash, Defog and Cut. My Bibarel knows all of the other HMs.

17th March 2009, 3:13 AM
My attack EVed adamant salamence.

I cant think of a name
17th March 2009, 7:10 AM
Smeargle, also knows Strength, Surf, and Rock Smash.

17th March 2009, 4:46 PM
My flyer depends on what team I'm training. If it's Team A, then it's Dragonite. For Team B, Togekiss. I use Team B more than Team A so Togekiss flies for me a lot more than Dragonite.

17th March 2009, 5:50 PM
My Staraptor , Steffen , is my flying and my bats the Crobat.Salamnece also.

17th March 2009, 5:52 PM
None of my team pkmn know fly, and my charizard is the only one that could. I use a Pidgeot whenever I need to fly.

Yellow Aura
17th March 2009, 9:24 PM
My Staraptor.

17th March 2009, 10:40 PM
Right now, my Rayquaza. It used to be Staraptor.

18th March 2009, 7:21 PM
Staraptor. For. The. Win.

Overheat Hothead
18th March 2009, 7:36 PM
Tropius. It also has three other TMs and I have a Swampert for the other four.

19th March 2009, 12:46 AM
Staraptor like many others.

19th March 2009, 12:48 AM
Any Starly/Staravia I happen to catch although I may use Tropius this time.

Too Funk to Druck
19th March 2009, 12:53 AM
My shiny Rayquazza. I also use him for surf.

19th March 2009, 2:18 AM
My flyer in Pearl is my Rayquaza. It used to be my Moltres but I changed my team's moves and Rayquaza now has Fly. In Platinum, my flyer will be Starly/Staravia/Staraptor. Sorry if we were only supposed to say flyers for D/P and not future flyers for Platinum.

19th March 2009, 2:29 AM
Skarmory, though I may change to Crobat when I import it.

19th March 2009, 4:36 AM
I still use a Doduo, for nothing more than the sheer humor of a supposedly wingless ostrich creature flying me from place to place. (Maybe it has super tiny wings, like an emu, but I digress.) Also, anything too small to technically support the weight of an adventuring teenager: Tailow, Hoothoot, Starly, Wingull, Swablu, Chatot, Zubat. When training, Staraptor or Rayquaza.

19th March 2009, 11:42 AM
The fuzz.. I just use a regular Staravia I caught random to fly around with xD

20th March 2009, 4:19 PM
I Use A Noctowl
Just To Be Diffrent I Guess
Hopeing To Get A Dragonite When I Defete The E4

XX Matty XX


20th March 2009, 4:55 PM
I use a Staraptor, like most people do. xD

20th March 2009, 9:13 PM
Pidgey or Doduo ;'D

22nd March 2009, 2:15 AM
I like to go for unconventional Flyers, or ones I haven't used in a while. For Platinum I'm gonna use Farfetch'd, since I haven't trained one since Yellow; in Diamond, I waited until my Drifloon evolved into Drifblim (totally worth it), and I've taken a keen liking to Honchkrow in Pearl. In 3Gen, I used Xatu, Aerodactyl and Tropius.

I haven't used birds like Pidgeot or Fearow since 2Gen, really. It got pretty boring. XD

22nd March 2009, 2:42 AM
Articuno mainly. Salamence before that, but I don't train my mains much anymore. (All high 90's so it takes forever)

22nd March 2009, 3:45 AM
It used to be Staravia, but now its an Aerodactyl since its a good HM Slave.

24th March 2009, 5:37 AM
Crobat. He's nifty.

24th March 2009, 7:50 AM
flygon, but i use crobat as well *3*

Last Disaster
24th March 2009, 9:12 AM
Fearow (female so Fly doesn't pass on in a breeding chain), until I import a Tropius from Emerald.

24th March 2009, 9:45 AM
-Tries hard to remember my team-
Uhm... I dont think I have a permament flier on my team. I just add some from my box whenever I need it. Walking is so much healthier anyways!

24th March 2009, 9:53 AM
I use my HM slave Tropius

24th March 2009, 10:39 AM
Dragonite atm :3
beforehand it was staraptor, fearow, aerodactyl then pidgeot.

26th March 2009, 11:39 PM
Fly is the only HM I use. I never use surf anymore. My usual flyer is Staraptor. I usually trade it over to my new games so if he goes into battle my flyer can kick butt.

Mike the Fire Trainer
27th March 2009, 2:01 PM
I am still partial to my Duduo as my Flyer. When my kids got me hooked during Pokemon Red Duduo was an early Pokemon traded to me from my son.

28th March 2009, 2:33 PM
My flyer at the moment is Honchkrow.
Don't know why though,i guess its just because i find it so elegant while flying but evil at the same time mwuahaha.

28th March 2009, 2:39 PM
As with most of my games, Mew is my HM slave.

31st March 2009, 12:59 AM
the honor always goes to my lvl 100 rayquaza from my little brothers emerald game

31st March 2009, 1:49 AM
Jarvis the Crobat. :D

I always like to use a Crobat; raise them from little Zubatty babies (':

as lalala_machine previously stated - he's nifty. :3


31st March 2009, 2:00 AM
Mine is my level 96 Pidgeot, it was originally from my FireRed Version!

31st March 2009, 2:45 AM
At the moment, Swellow.

With previous teams I've used Staraptor, Pidgeot, Crobat & Honchkrow.

31st March 2009, 5:19 AM

Staraptor. I guess that a lot of people do just because he's so convenient in this game, but I actually went back and rEVed him after I'd beaten the game. I figured that if I'm going to have him fly me all over the place he'd might as well be decent. I just gave him 252/252 Attack and Speed, but it works nicely in the Elite Four. (not that it really needs the extra boost to beat them..)

31st March 2009, 5:59 AM
My Staraptor, Moses. He's mah flyer.

31st March 2009, 11:56 PM
Well i vary between my games in Diamond i have like 5 Pidgeot, Farfetch'd, Staraptor, Honchkrow
In pearl i dont even have a flying type in my team(why cant garchomp learn fly???)so i use staravia
In Platinum i use a Drifblim.

1st April 2009, 1:46 PM
Staraptor :d.

Sharks Shouldn't Fly
6th April 2009, 12:13 AM
Staraptor. First bird I caught.

6th April 2009, 12:16 AM
I frequently switch between Pidgeot and Staraptor, but in the game's main plot, I used Staraptor.

6th April 2009, 12:28 AM
I use Staraptor as a flyer in Diamond, Pearl, and Platinum. But I have a Lv. 100 Pigeot that I use every once in a while, because it doesn't have Intimidate.

9th April 2009, 5:20 PM

Wow, it seems I'm the only person in the thread...weird.

Miltank Lover
9th April 2009, 6:17 PM
My Fearow named: Little, my Pidgeot named Blade, my Staraptor named Isuzu & my most used flyer would be my Rayquaza named Greenhead :)

9th April 2009, 6:26 PM
In Diamond it's a Staraptor (Brd), but I mixed things up in Platinum a little and got a Noctowl (Insomnia) as my flyer instead. =D

9th April 2009, 6:33 PM
No one else use Xatu? I mainly have in in my team so i can train my pokemon on the grass/bug/poison types in the resort area XD

11th April 2009, 6:47 AM
My flyer is a lvl 2 Starly. Very original. I'm considering making Honchkrow (who I use) as my flyer though.

11th April 2009, 8:03 AM
I use my Staraptor, who is a part of my actual team in Diamond, and not just an HM poke.

11th April 2009, 6:40 PM
I use Staraptor because it is the easiest one to get in the game although I'll use Noctowl in Plat.

I usually implement Fly into one of my team member's movesets.

I always end up with Pokemon that can learn Fly, but I usually just catch a Wingull-Pelliper, then use it as an HM Slave (Surf, Fly, Defog, Waterfall (I think)).

For Diamond, it's my lovely Togekiss, in Platinum, it's my Crobat.

Both of which are on my team.

25th June 2009, 11:57 PM
Staraptor is my flier, I just basically use the first flying pokemon that I catch and train in every game.

26th June 2009, 2:11 AM
i usually catch a starly as my first pokemon but this time it was a shinx so i train shinx to a luxray get fly then notice i dont have any flying types so i caught a lvl 21 staravia who flys then goes back in my box.my other flyer is a lvl 51 fearow who hasn't been trained at all and who ever i find first in my box flys me wherever

26th June 2009, 2:12 AM
A Staravia.


26th June 2009, 2:15 AM
Lv. 100 Flygon from Emerald.

26th June 2009, 2:15 AM

My character needs to lose weight so she is forced to bike/run everywhere^^

26th June 2009, 2:19 AM
In Pearl, a Farfetch'd (the only non-uber pokémon I know of that can fly and cut).

In Diamond, a Staraptor (typical, eh?).

In Platinum, a lv. 100 Dragonite from FR.

26th June 2009, 2:22 AM

Shadow Arceus
26th June 2009, 6:16 PM
Staraptor was mine at first, but now its Flygon lv 55

26th June 2009, 6:20 PM
Mine is a lv 50 Salamence, I often use it to fly everywhere, but sometimes, I use a shiny Rayquaza I got from a trade, which is currently at level 80.

26th June 2009, 6:25 PM
I don't have a flyer. I sometimes swap out for my Crobat, but usually, my team is land and/or Water based.

They seriously need to make a good Water/Flying type other than Gyarados. With wings.

26th June 2009, 6:26 PM
rayquaza muahahahhaaaa

26th June 2009, 6:28 PM
In my platnium, my first flyer was my Staraptor, then Arcticuno.

26th June 2009, 6:32 PM
A Pelipper with DeFog, Surf, and Fly.

I don't have a flyer. I sometimes swap out for my Crobat, but usually, my team is land and/or Water based.

They seriously need to make a good Water/Flying type other than Gyarados. With wings.

Pelipper and Mantine glare angrily at you.

What they really need to make is a Fire/Flying type with Flame Body, for hatching eggs and flying around.

26th June 2009, 6:34 PM
Ma Giratina! :p

26th June 2009, 6:35 PM
Tropius, because it can learn some other HM-moves.

26th June 2009, 6:36 PM
Pearl - Staraptor
Platinum - Crobat

26th June 2009, 6:38 PM
I use Staraptor in Pearl and Starly in Diamond.

26th June 2009, 6:46 PM

26th June 2009, 6:58 PM

Mawile XD
26th June 2009, 8:13 PM
A Tropius with Cut, Defog, Rock Smash, and Fly.

26th June 2009, 8:21 PM
I use Blueberry, my Staraptor for Pearl version.

For Platinum, I use Blackberry, my other Staraptor. lol

26th June 2009, 8:29 PM
Crobat's my flier. :D

26th June 2009, 8:31 PM
On Diamond I use Bosco the Pidgeot.

On Platinum I use Feliz the Togekiss.

27th June 2009, 4:42 AM
Staraptor. Basically I use the first "bird" I come across and use it to save time.

27th June 2009, 12:34 PM
I use my none-EV trained Staraptor. He's awesomely awesome at flying!

Kakashi-Sharingan Warrior
27th June 2009, 1:12 PM
Staravia, or whatever random flying type I have in my PC.

Light in darkness
27th June 2009, 1:21 PM
Staraptor use to be my 'flyer'. But now I'm using Dragonite.

27th June 2009, 1:28 PM
mine is my lvl 100 crobat, beacuse its still quite a useful move to have ingame and usefull for getting everywere, oviously lol

27th June 2009, 1:58 PM
Togekiss i love it.

27th June 2009, 2:20 PM
Staraptor was my fly-girl in pearl and now in Platinum i have altaria in my party and switch in a Staravia when i need to fly

27th June 2009, 8:43 PM
Staraptor is my flyer.

28th June 2009, 1:05 AM
Dracooler the Crobat flies me around!

28th June 2009, 1:16 AM
Diamond: Going to be a Staraptor.
Pearl: Crobat, who recently turned two.
Jp. Platinum: Togekiss.
Eng. Platinum: Probably going to be some random Flying Type.

28th June 2009, 1:18 AM
Flygon. Sometimes Charizard or Salamance.

On Diamond, it's Honchkrow or Crobat.

28th June 2009, 3:09 AM
I have a Lv. 40 Staraptor named Fenchurch that does the Flying for my time. Plus, she also knows Thief, so I can steal from those Chansies. :D

28th June 2009, 3:50 AM
i use my staraptor

Joe Vega #4
28th June 2009, 4:44 AM
I used to use Staraptor, but it got pretty useless in battle, so I got myself a Flygon.

MamoBlaze 2
28th June 2009, 4:52 AM
I fly on my crobat.

28th June 2009, 8:39 PM
My Staraptor, Star, is my flyer.
(On a side note, my flyer in FireRed is a Charizard ^^ )

29th June 2009, 9:37 AM
I was using a Staraptor, but I'll be switching to a Tropius since it can learn 4 HMs.

29th June 2009, 9:46 AM
Right now it's noctowl. Eventually it will be honchkrow

29th June 2009, 10:00 AM
Mine was originally a Staraptor,
once i beat the elite four though i transfered all of my pokemon from R/S/E so the good pokemon i have from those games are my flyers.

29th June 2009, 10:02 AM
first it was staraptor, now, it's my charizard, but i'm thinking about replacing fly with aerial ace and use my staraptor again

29th June 2009, 10:12 AM
It's always been Straraptor, although thats my regular game team I only use my real team for online battles.

29th June 2009, 10:22 AM
I use skarmory atm because it's a great hm slave for other hm's too

29th June 2009, 12:31 PM
My flyer is Staraptor and that is what it usually is but once I used a Honchkrow.

29th June 2009, 4:25 PM
I Either carry a Salamence or Dragonite as a flier...If I Have a team or legendaries...a Rayquaza...In The Middle of the game I'll Use a Staraptor though...

29th June 2009, 4:50 PM

It was actually accidental. I forgot to get my old flyer, and was lazy to go to the Pokemon Center, so I decided to get him Fly. Now it has Fly, Defog and Rock Climb as its HMs.

29th June 2009, 5:02 PM
At the moment my flyer is my shiny salamence.

29th June 2009, 7:11 PM
My Flier Is Currently Noctowl, It Normally Is Staraptor But I Decided To Use Noctowl Because It Is Also A Physic Type.

29th June 2009, 7:56 PM
I used Staravia as I was playing through the game, now I use Noctowl because its a contest Pokemon and I use it in battle occasionally.

29th June 2009, 8:08 PM
I just go with the highest level bird I see. Currently using lv. 51 Fearow.

30th June 2009, 12:06 AM
This is for my Platinum game, but I use my captured Pokemon: a level 2 Starly that I caught at Lake Verity.

I didn't really want a Flying type on my team, so I just switch out whenever I need to. I'll probably train the poor thing to Staraptor once I decide to fill up my Pokedex.

30th June 2009, 12:07 AM
Staraptor, though I don't really use him to battle.

30th June 2009, 12:09 AM
Giratina. Yea, I know, I'm crazy in the head. It's just that I know he's my flyer because he sticks out, and he's not some Starly lyling around.

30th June 2009, 12:11 AM
I use a Swallow.


30th June 2009, 12:40 AM
Haha, that brings back strange memories,
I've always used my Starly lvl 100.
It's hold item was a Evertone, i've never noticed xD
I think i've gived the stone to him xD
When it was lvl 100, I was searching for Leftover to give him, then it said he already has a item, EVERSTONE xD, it makes me laugh =$

But now I'am using mew as flyer =)

30th June 2009, 12:51 AM
Tropius. It's named "HM Slave 2". Bibarel is my "HM Slave 1".

30th June 2009, 1:00 AM
I use staraptor, yes i know, overused.

30th June 2009, 1:07 AM
mine right now is Staraptor

30th June 2009, 11:42 PM
In my Platinum, it is going to be Xatu. In Pearl, I'm remaking my team, so...maybe Tropius or Aerodactal.

1st July 2009, 2:58 AM
My usual flyer has been my Salamence, Fluffyhead. Runners up are Hubert the Dragonite, False God the Giratina or Phoebe, my shiny Pidgeot.

1st July 2009, 3:04 AM
Before Dppt, it was any one that was in my main team that can learn fly. Since Pearl, my flyer has been Peliper.

1st July 2009, 3:04 AM
Tropius. It's named "HM Slave 2". Bibarel is my "HM Slave 1".

why tropius as a slave he is da bomb

1st July 2009, 8:07 AM
My fliers in diamond are Honchkrow, and the Lv. 100 Charizard I migrated from LeafGreen

Abysmal Zero
1st July 2009, 8:10 AM
Staraptor. She kicks butt.

1st July 2009, 3:32 PM
I use flygon

1st July 2009, 5:09 PM
In Diamond it's a Staraptor.

In Pearl it's a Swablu.

In Platinum It's a Togekiss.

1st July 2009, 5:17 PM
I use Togekiss. He is the only flyer I have in Platinum, because I never bother to get a other one.

1st July 2009, 5:23 PM
Staraptor in Platinum

5th July 2009, 12:46 AM
Chatot in Diamond (i love the lil guy)
Staraptor in Platinum
Pearl im thinking about restarting (so much for it being a comeptive group of pokemon they all suck)

5th July 2009, 4:10 PM
On diamond I use my Pidgeot, that I transported from ruby.
And on Platinum.. I can't fly yet. Only have a chimchar lvl 7 xD Well anyway I think it would be noctowl or altaria or togetic.

Escape Reality
5th July 2009, 5:14 PM
my flyer is currently staraptor. unless i trade one, or am changing my team it's always been that since i would catch a starly for that purpose, and it can also prove pretty good in some battles if it knows a variety of moves, like close combat, steel wing, etc. ;)

5th July 2009, 5:17 PM
I was staraptor but then I thought about it realistically...your sitting on a small bird and I thought that was cruel D: so I started to use bigger crap like Pidgeot

ground tamer
6th July 2009, 5:50 AM
Pre-Elite Four: Chatot
Post-Elite Four: Pidgeot

Platinum: Tropius (Ahh the best hm slave around)

6th July 2009, 5:59 AM
Platinum: Hacked Lugia-I use him in battle, but mostly for surfing and flying
Pearl: restarted cant use fly yet :(

6th July 2009, 10:59 AM
Mine's Pelipper, 'cause he can surf and climb waterfalls defog, too. He's level 53, but no help at all on E4 runs. xD

6th July 2009, 1:24 PM
Using a smeargle as flyer ^^
Together with a Linoone they got all 8 HMs

6th July 2009, 9:30 PM
Honchkrow. <33

7th July 2009, 3:15 AM
I use my Crobat.

7th July 2009, 6:07 PM
If I need to fly somewhere, I usually take out my Skarmory from the box. I never use my type appropriate party Pokemon as flyers, so they are usually lower leveled than the ones I train.

Gabriel Rocha Nascimento
7th July 2009, 6:53 PM

It is my flyer, my strengther, my rock smasher and my defogger.

7th July 2009, 7:54 PM

8th July 2009, 11:03 AM
Honchkrow almost all the time is my main "Flyer". Either that or it's my Salamence or Dragonite. :3

8th July 2009, 11:08 AM
For much of the game my flyer was drifblim. However, since now I am training an Aerodactyl, it is my current "flyer".

8th July 2009, 12:05 PM
My current flyer is a togetic.
