Reaction: Oh no, not another Normal-Flying Type.
Why I Hate Them: So, Pokemon is a game that has a feature called FLY. It’s basically the ability to fast travel to previously visited locations. It’s a great feature. HOWEVER, in order to use it , you need a pokemon with the ability to fly. Which means that no matter what team you want, you will need a Flying pokemon. And most of the time, its going to be an extremely boring Normal-Flying type. You have no choice. Make peace with your gods.
Why I Love Them: Here’s a surprising fact. Most Flying pokemon are sub-types. Meaning that almost every other type has a flying type in it. Depending on the game, you can have a good pool to choose from. Sure, their defense is not great, and their weak against Rock, Ice, and Electric, but they are strong against Grass, and more importantly, immune to Ground. and strong against Fighting types. Flying types are advantagous against the two strongest types in the game!
