Every Pokemon game has it's starter bird. It's been a long-standing tradition in the franchise to have a Normal/Flying type Pokemon available early in the game. So, what's your favorite?

Personally, I like Staraptor the best. While I don't really like Generation IV very much, it sure gave us a helluva bird!

I voted for Staraptor, even though I wanted to vote for Fearow. I always thought of Fearow being the best. I think it should be included here because its available on the second route in RBY/FRLG

I voted for Swellow. Never actually played through R/S/E but I like the design the most, and I have used it in battle elsewhere. It's a pretty cool bird.

Hoothoot for me

I think it's the most unique because it's an owl and also have a more diverse move-pool then just being an average attacker :3

Pidgey, first and original. I like it for it's excellent moveset, and I generally like it's design the most. And it's an eagle...eagles are cool, man.

Surprised how little people voted for Pidgey!
Easily my favourite.
Pigeot is an amazing Pokemon in my eyes, The only flying Pokemon I like better is Braviary.

Also Ash had one, I cried when it left.

Taillow.

This little birdy gets really useful moves like Quick Attack, Focus Energy, Peck/Wing Attack, and some fourth thing.
Then it eventually evolves into Swellow, and Swellow itself is really cool looking.

I voted for Pidgeot. Basically any game where you can find Pidgey, one has become a main member of my team. Aside from Pidgeot, the only other one I've even used is Staraptor.

I voted for the Starly line cos I use one in all my playthroughs of the Sinnoh games and Staraptor learns Close Combat, which makes it cool.

It's definitely my staple Flying-type in all my 4th Gen teams.

My vote goes for HootHoot. 2nd generation nostalgia remains... I guess it's one of the weakest though, I used it in my Soul Silver game and it didn't help a lot. However I had good memories of it from my Silver version... Well, it must be because I was too young to really understand who was strong and who wasn't

Starly-line. Similar to poster above, it's the only "bird" (because as we all know, bird is a glitch type ) I've ever used.

I love how Pidgeotto and Pidgeot look. I had a Pidgeot called Anna when I played through Gold, they may suck competitively but I think they're awesome~
Swellow and Taillow come a close second though.

I would have to go with the pidove line. I found myself using the pidove I started with even now. Funny thing is before I gave fifth gen pokemon a chance Pidove was my least favorite.

Voted! For Taillow that is, its the only bird Pokemon I actually used for the longest time, I keep it as a HM fly, when ever I need to fly from one part of the map to another.

From a competitive standpoint: Staraptor is just freaking awesome. @_@; Brave Birds hurts. A lot.

I like to use Spearow/Fearow most in the same manner as one. It can be gotten early in the first generation, so it is something of a starter bird if Hoothoot/Noctowl can be. The fifth generation brings a Drill Peck/Run combo to Fearow which I'm very keen on.

If Spearow won't be counted, then the classic Pidgey line is charmingly retro and surprisingly tough.

I picked Starly because I loved Staraptor. I caught one on route one and used it till the end of the game.

I voted for HootHoot for the exact same reason, nostalgia. although I've never owned any of the Johto Remakes, I will indeed get one in the future and I will definitely make sure I get a HootHoot first thing. Move wise, I would have to say that Pidgey was my favorite because I love Pidgeotto and Pidgiot, they are so strong!

Swellow was an absolute boss in RSE. Even Taillow destroyed everything in the beginning of the game.
