    Cool Rank Ash's bird flying types strongest to weakest

    Ash has always had a flying type on his team in every region so now I want to know from you guys where you'd rank them all.

    Talonflame - Has decent enough wins and is part of Ash's best team yet.
    Staraptor - One of his powerhouses in Sinnoh.
    Swellow - Was a decent battler in Hoenn region.
    Noctowl - Had more screen time than Unfezant but not as strong as the ones above.
    Unfezant - Decent pokemon but lacks screen time unlike the others.

    Didn't include Pidgeot since Ash doesn't own it anymore.

    Dragon user - can counter Steel with Fire attacks and counter Fairy with Poison and Steel attacks.

    My Dragon gym leader/elite 4 and champion team - Mega Charizard X, Kingdra, Garchomp, Haxorus, Dragalge and Tyrantrum

    My legendary Dragon team - Mega Rayquaza, Black Kyurem, Latios with Soul Dew, Dialga, Palkia and Reshiram

    Currently waiting for Sun and Moon to come out.

    Goodra is likely to be released again. Ash is likely going to lose the Kalos league since Alain is stronger in my opinion.

    - Staraptor the strongest.
    - Swellow not the strongest.

    May the debates commence.

    Pigeot is the weakest of the birds.

    I can said that Ash's Swellow or Talonflame is the strongest bird Pokemon around. For Swellow it would be the first bird Pokemon to use in every gym battle after it evolved. It face off powerful oppenent like Shiny Swellow, Solrock, Wishcash, Scisor without getting hit, Haramayama, Donphan, Arcanine, and Venasaur. It even was the first bird Pokemon to go agianst to legendaries of Dexos and Latios. I would say that Staraptor kinda got the scaffed after the third gym. it didn't get that much screen time like Swellow did in the previous series.

    Any comparision is p. much baseless because they all fought very different opponents of varying strength levels, not that you guys care -_-

    But if I was to buy into this, I'd say Talonflame/Swellow -> Hawlucha -> Staraptor -> Unfezant -> Noctowl -> Pidgeotto

    Not this **** again.

    Swellow is easily the best. Smogonbird is still up in the air because we don't know how it'll perform at the league. Staraptor is overrated thanks to DP fanboyism.

    Swellow/Gliscor>Talonflame>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>> >>>>>>>>><Staraptor and everyone else.

    Staraptor is overrated. Funny enough some are rating Staraptor as a tier 1 but say that Goodra is the most overrated pokemon ever.

    This.

    Mostly DP fanboys rank Staraptor as #1 anyway, so it's a very biased thing.

    To me it goes: Swellow>Talonflame>>>>>>>>>Noctowl>>>>The others.

    Swellow and Staraptor are very difficult to rank because of their solid performances, but Talonflame could easily surpass them with a solid League run. Hawlucha's great too but has, surprisingly, been overshadowed by Talonflame.

    I wish Noctowl was stronger.

    Swellow > Talonflame > Staraptor/Hawlucha > Noctowl > Unfezant/Pidgeot

    I always felt like Staraptor was kind of overrated. I can't think of any particularly notable wins it has, compared to Swellow's league performances and starring roles against Tucker and Winona. Talonflame and Hawlucha are kind of hard to rank since the series still isn't finished, but both of them have been fairly solid and Talonflame probably has the best gym record of any Pokemon. Noctowl's Sinnoh appearance puts it slightly ahead. Pidgeot and Unfezant come last for obvious reason.

    Staraptor started off good then fell flat at the league (I'd argue it was Ash's worst performer against Paul). I do think there is some DP bias here but that's all I'll say on the matter.
    Swellow was decent initially but really took off after evolving and had strong League and Battle Frontier showings.
    Talonflame has just been consistently good and it's League performance will determine if I rank it first or second.
    Unfezant was meh.
    Noctowl was also meh in Johto but had a good showing in the Sinnoh League.
    Hawlucha has also been consistent.
    Pidgeot was also meh but also gets overrated at times due to
    OS bias.

    One day will somebody will explain to me why Staraptor is apparently so good other than "Brave Bird." Smogonbird needs to have a great league performance to match Swellow.

    None of the birds are in tier-1 alongside the likes of Pikachu, Zard, Sceptile, etc.

    If you included all of Ash's Flying-types:

    Tier-1: Charizard
    Tier-2: Swellow, Gliscor, Smogonbird(*)
    Tier-3: Smogonbird(*), Lucha, Staraptor
    Tier-4: Noctowl
    Tier-5/6: Unfezant, Pidgeot

    * Depends on the Kalos League

    Can Swellow even do anything with his moveset except fly into things?
