Answer to the topic (you only have to answer one):
Would you like to be notified when new features, games, and competitions are added to the club? YES/NO



1) Spearow/Fearow or Pidgey/Pideotto/Pidgeot? Why?
2) Which generation had the best Flying-Types?
3) Who's your favourite Flying-type Gym Leader: Falkner, Winona or Skyla? Why? If they had to battle each other, who would be the best?
4) Which of the starter bird lines is your favourite and why?

5) Did anyone else notice that the size of Birds like Pidgeot and Fearow vary dramatically between the games and anime? Like in Colosseum, I had both of those and they were like half my height but in the anime (from what I remember of it) These birds could swoop down and pick up Ash easily. Thoughts?
6) Your best and worst experiences with Birds in battle, both metagame and competitive?
7) Which Flying-type has the best shiny sprite?

Would you like to be notified when new features, games, and competitions are added to the club? Yes

Spearow/Fearow or Pidgey/Pideotto/Pidgeot? Why?

Though I do like Spearow's aggressive nature, the Pidgey line overshines that by so much. I've pretty much always loved Pidgey, ever since the first playthrough of Blue that I actually remember. It was the first Pokémon that I ever caught and fully raised apart from my starter, and just that gave me so many reasons to love. Though it may not be that strong in comparison to the other starter birds, I've always love it for its simple yet stunning design, as well as the moves it learn. This may all be because my nostalgia goggles are set a bit too tight, though I'm sure I'm not the only Pokéfan who has taken a nostalgia filled liking to Pidgey.

Spearow on the other hand, apart from liking its concept, I don't really like it at all. I just never found it as a Pokémon I'd ever like to be part of my main team, and thus I've never really trained one. I do remember that I once borrowed my Leaf Green out to a friend, and then he ended up wasting my Master Ball on a Fearow because someone told him it was a fourth bird to the legendary trio. Oh believe me I was mad, though yeah. The Spearow line has never been anything I've liked, and I probably never will.

Topic: Pidgey family vs Spearow family
Pidgey family, I've really only used the Pidgey family, never really focused on the Spearow family. I think Pidgeot is a lot easier to train and battle with than Fearow, though both of their designs are just really good.

Answer to the topic: I think they're both pretty cool... I guess I'll go with Fearow's. As the final evolution, Fearow just looks so menacing. This is really close though.

Add-diddly-added! Nice picture post by the way :D And your comment gave me an idea for a new topic: Which Generation has the best Flying-Types? Personally, I think either Hoenn (for Salamence, Altaria, Swellow, TROPIUS <3, etc.) and probably Johto.

Spearow/Fearow or Pidgey/Pideotto/Pidgeot? Why?
I've used Pidgeot in my team several times... I've never used a Fearow! I dunno, Fearow looks okay but it isn't for me. It's kinda thin and not majestic enough to carry my butt around in the sky. :(

Which Generation has the best Flying-Types?
Arghhh can't decide if I love the Kanto bird trio or Lugia&Ho-oh more... But then there's Staraptor, Togekiss, Gliscor, Yanmega, and Skymin in Sinnoh! GUH.

Which Generation has the best Flying-Types?

Well it has taken kind of a turn over the generations, so it's kinda hard to say. I personally prefer second generation due to Ho-oh, Lugia and Skarmory, though looking at the journey, I think the fourth generation has the best by far. Pokémon like Staraptor and Drifblim whose pre-evolutions you could get pretty early in the game, are both pretty strong, Staraptor being the best starter bird by far, and they would both serve as great Flying types for your team, as well as with all the other strong Flying type Pokémon you can find across the game. So with all that, I'd probably have to say Sinnoh, since Johto just didn't have enough, and the other generations weren't really anything notable to me.

Spearow/Fearow or Pidgey/Pideotto/Pidgeot? Why?
I've gotta be honest, I'm more of a Fearow person...Now hear me out, when I first started playing way back in the days of Red and Blue in 1998 I was wholly a Pidgey kinda guy. Never even touched a Spearow except to trade it to that guy in Vermillion City for Farfetch'd's pokedex data. However, as the years have gone by...I've sort of switched over into the other camp. As far as the beginner birds go, Fearow is a beast! It's super fast and has awesome attack...plus Pidgeot NEVER gets a move that Fearow can't learn as powerful as Drill Peck. Sorry, but points go to Fearow. Love ya Pidgey....just not as much

Which Generation has the best Flying-Types?
Once again, I'm gonna be the odd man out here and say Gen V...I'm sorry, but there are some cool flying types in Gen V. When I first saw the pokemon designs for 5th gen, I had the sane typical reaction as the majority of pokemon fans (they have since grown on me, however). But, I never once doubted or scorned the designs of any of the flying types. Woobat is unbelievably adorable, Braivary is awesome, Swanna's so elegant, and Archeops is my new favorite pokemon of all time! (I'm a dinosaur fanatic...so...). In second place, though, I do have to give my respect to Gen 1...the birds in that game are so iconic and synonymous with the franchise as a whole.

Who's your favourite Flying-type Gym Leader: Falkner, Winona or Skyla? Why? If they had to battle each other, who would be the best?

Add-diddly-added! I've never played against Winona. Let's check out who is on her team...

Okay, I'm going with Winona. Falkner was weaker than a dead gnat. Skyla might put up a good fight against her though. Overall I think Winona's team would win in the end.

Wow, that's a good question...Team wise, I'm gonna have to go with Winona. She has a really good spread...plus, I'm a huge fan of Tropius. However, I have always thought Falkner was really cool. I remember as a kid always wishing that there was a flying type gymleader (and when playing pokemon with my elementary school friends I often pretended to be one, lol), so having the first gym leader of GSC being a flying type user was pretty darn awesome. Plus I love his storyline, always wanting to live up to his father's image. And his team does get better in the HGSS post game...so there ya go. Falkner for Stlye, Winona for Substance (sorry Skyla )

Falkner all the way ! He's one of the cutest gym leader to my mind. There are very beautiful fanarts of him. Then I love his personnality in the manga. He's an interesting character. And, anyway I particularly like Johto Gym Leaders.
However, I believe the strongest would be Winona. I think Skyla's team pretty weak, and in the game she was the easiest for me to beat out of the three. And, if they had to battle each other with their World Tournament's team, Winona would win to my mind. Her team's seems to be the toughest.

Zapdos was the most useful flying-type competitively. Each time I'm building a strategy team, I choose it. I love its double type, the best combination that could have a flying type to my mind.
Then, the one that served me the worst was Noctowl. I had the memory of a strong flying type from Silver version, but in Soul Silver it was very weak. Well, I didn't expect it to be the best neither, but I didn't think it would be that bad for strategy :/ Despite this fact, it remains one of my favourite flying type Pokémon anyway, nostalgia thinks for me

I don't fight competitively, so within the metagames I'd say Salamance was actually both my best and worst fighter for Gale of Darkness. She could destroy opponents with her monstrous attack stat, but if there was an Ice Type on the other team... bam. Gone in a second. I should've withdrawn her more :<

Well I dabble in the competitive curcuit (emphasis on dabble), however I don't really use flying types when I compete...(I usually go for weather strategies and flying types don't do so well in those, outside of legendaries, and I don't like to compete with them). However, in game I'd say the bird that benefited me the best would have to be a toss up between Zapdos (thanks Mentalii lol) and Archeops. Zapdos's typing is killer, and helped me sweep against many an elite 4 member in RYB and GSC. Archeops, however, has done the same for me in the Gen 5 games (so long as I never let it get below half health, but with its speed and attack power that was never really a problem).

Hey, snowy, I got an idea...why don't we have a little contest (just for fun). I'm working on a fan game, and while Im not a really great artist, I do like having to design my own pokemon...Why don't we see who can come up with the best fan made flying type pokemon? (compelte with pokedex entry for good measure, lol). Just an idea. We don't have to.

Who's your favourite Flying-type Gym Leader: Falkner, Winona or Skyla?

The answer to this one is pretty clear :p For me it's definitely Falkner, mostly because he's the only Flying type gym leader I really recall battling, and in my early days, having trouble with. I've played the third generation games, but I had honestly forgotten all about Winona when I replayed the games a little while ago, and I didn't think there actually were any other Flying type trainers than Falkner and Skyla. Skyla I can't say much about though, since I've never played B/W, and her character in the anime didn't really help her in the case, so it's definitely not her. It all goes down to Falkner anyway, as the second generation games were my favourite, I've always loved Falkner due to BIIIIIRDS, and he's a pretty cool gym leader in general.

Would you like to be noticed when new features, games, and competitions are added to the club? Yes

Spearow/Fearow or Pidgey/Pidgeotto/Pidgeot and why? Fearow, Fearow's attack is good and has decent speed and learns the move Drill Peck which is an awesome move. For some reason I just like it's design more over the other 4 Pokemon. I like Pidgeot too but Fearow gets the win this time.

I almost forgot..
Who is your favorite Flying Gym Leader? I like Falkner because HG/SS is my favorite Pokemon games because Crystal was my first ever Pokemon game.

Which games has the best flying types? IMO, Pokemon HG/SS. In this game you can get Hoothoot very early in the game which later evolves into a Noctowl and shares 2 types Flying and Psychic. It's also got Pidgey eary on in the game as well. Scyther (if you classify him as Flying) is also in the game fairl early, and don't forget about Skarmory which is also Steel type.

Sorry for not having bold letters for the sign up sheet, I'm using my PS3 browser.

Who is your favorite Flying Gym Leader?
I guess it would be Falkner, not just because I think he looks cool. My first game was Gold, so he was the first ever Gym Leader I fought. And he has an awesome team when you challenge him for a battle in Saffron in HG/SS.

Which games has the best flying types? I can't really decide. The first gen had the 3 legendary birds Articuno, Zapdos and Moltres (who are awesome!). Second Gen had Murkrow and Skarmory and the epic Ho-oh and Lugia. Third gen was alright with Swellow, and the unique Altaria who looked like a bird but was a dragon type. Fourth gen has Staraptor and Honchkrow, who were awesome with power. And fifth gen has Braviary, who I just simply love.
But I guess if I were to pick a generation, I'd have to say 2nd gen. Ho-oh looks so amazing!

Welcome to the club,Mr. Rhymez and Star!!!


Who's your favourite Flying-type Gym Leader: Falkner, Winona or Skyla?
Winona all the way! She has the best design for a flying gym leader. Winona is also the most formidable, although Falkner wasn't soo bad. Winona gives out one of my favorite flying type move aerial ace. That Altaria is a monster and even her Skarmory can put up quite a fight and she uses a quite unique team that is very appropiate for that stage of the game. Her Skarmory was a demon, Altaria didn't lag behind and her remaining Pokémon were on par with the difficulty of what the others have to offer.

Thanks Avishka!

I do like Winona's design too. I planned to cosplay as her one day. Yeah, her team was a strong one, especially with them knowing aerial ace. Skarmory was hard even with my Blaziken, and its hard to take on Altaria without any ice moves to back you up. But I think I took on her Altaria with my own Altaria and just barely made it.
