One of the widest type of Pokemon outside of normal type Pokemon probably is a flying type Pokemon. All flying type Pokemon except for the new Tornadus are flying type Pokemon and normal type Pokemon. This is probably why there are so many flying type Pokemon, along with normal types, because they are mostly likely mixed, at least the large majority. Flying type Pokemon have been used by gym leaders three times now.
The first was Flakner, the first gym leader in the Johto region, he can be a bother to most beginning trainers because his flying type Pokemon are pretty strong. The second is Winona, Winona is the sixth gym leader of the Hoenn region, she trains flying type Pokemon, of course. The third to use flying type Pokemon is Skyla, the also sixth leader to use flying type Pokemon in a league. She is the gym leader of the Unova region. There are usually more than one flying type species in a region, in the Kanto region you have a Pidgey but also a Spearow. Spearow is a Pokemon that is a lot like Pidgey and can be battled and captured almost just as early as a Pidgey.
In the anime Ash Ketchum tries to capture a Spearow when he first starts his journey, but all he did was make it angry, so it called all of its friends and other Spearow and they chased Ash and his Pikachu. Pikachu eventually shocked them all and they were able to go safely to a Pokemon Center, away from the Spearow. Spearow is also a normal type Pokemon and a flying type Pokemon, he will evolve into a Fearow. Spearow has some nerve and isn’t really the strongest Pokemon in the world, but probably and most likely can get the job done with other Pokemon as long as they are around the same level as Spearow. Spearow is in the Kanto Pokedex along with its evolution, Fearow. You will find several Spearow at low levels around the same place you can find a Fearow but this is not always true, sometimes in certain areas, you can only find a Fearow where there are higher leveled Pokemon, and a Spearow where they are low leveled. Very rarely can you find Spearow and Fearow in the wild at the same time. What do you think about the flying Pokemon Spearow?
Have you heard of a poison type Pokemon before? I am sure you have, they are the most important Pokemon, or at leas tone of them. They get some powerful attacks, some very powerful attacks. One of the most famous attacks that you will see a lot is probably Toxic. Toxic will poison the foe, by giving them the poisoned status conditions. After each turn in battle the foes Pokemon will lose some health points. What is different is with toxic, a Pokemon will not just lose health points every turn. What Toxic will do is poison the Pokemon and every turn they will lose a little more health points, every turn it will lose more every turn. A Pokemon that is a posion type is Weezing.
Weezing is the evolved form of Koffing, Koffing will evolve into Weezing. Weezing has a lot of power, but don’t get me wrong, he is not the best Pokemon to use in battle. Weezing may look cool, but I have never seen him used competitively in battle. Weezing is in the Kanto Pokedex. And in the first section in the National Pokedex. In the anime, James of Team Rocket once used a koffing, this was long ago, way back in the Kanto region days. His Koffing was used in battle against Ash Ketchum and his Pikachu many times. Koffing was with James for many episodes, a bunch of them, but on one episode his Koffing evolved. His, James・Koffing evolved into a Weezing. This happened the same time, the exact same time when Jessie, James・Team Rocket partner had an Ekans. It evolved into an Arbok the exact same time that James’ Koffing evolved into a Weezing. Weezing took the place of Koffing and was used in many battle against Ash.
Weezing was a powerful opponent the first time when Ash had to battle it, but it eventually got a lot easier to defeat and was blasted off without much of a chance when Ash’s Pikachu got stronger. All in all though, Weezing is a pretty good Pokemon. What do you think of Weezing?
