What are the flying Pokémon weaknesses?

There are three types that flying Pokémon are especially weak to – ice, electric, and rock. If you come across one of those with a bird on your team, we suggest you rename them to Christmas, Easter, or Thanksgiving, as that’s all they’re good for.

What are the flying Pokémon resistances?

Luckily, while flying Pokémon have three weaknesses, they also have three resistances and one that they’re entirely unaffected by. Ground-type moves don’t damage those ‘mon in the sky, and given birds tend to snack on creepy crawlies, it’s hardly a surprise that bug- and grass-types do little damage to them.
