Flying

The Flying-type is one of the fifteen elemental types introduced in the first generation of Pokémon. Once, early on in development, the Flying-type was called Bird type. However, this was changed before release as more and more non-birdlike Pokémon capable of flight were introduced to the games, forcing the development team to change the type’s name to Flying to describe the types roster better. Nowadays, it is still predominantly made up of birds, with many flying insects and even mythical creatures and Pteranodons mixed in.

It is to note that before Generation 4, all damaging Flying-type moves were categorized into physical attacks, while afterward being split up into the special and status categories too – depending on the move.
