Nowadays, Pokemon travel on your journey to becoming the best there ever was has evolved. It used to be your feet and a bike. Now, you you can ride on Pokemon in your party as a travel option. Plus, there are built in game mechanics that are basically Pokemon taxi service. The Gala region has their Flying Taxi that utilize Corviknights to fly you from place to place. Well, that got me thinkin Theorists. Did Pokemon get flying RIGHT? Could a Corviknight, or any flying type, actually carry passengers or even THEMSELF? It's time to find out!

Well actually,Skarmory's gold entry says that it's wings are hollow and light also why are you taking steel and rock literally you just have to be as hard as rock or steel to be either of these types

Also, quick question. Should togekiss really count? I've never seen it flap its wings. Presumably, they're more for stabilizing flight than producing lift, meaning it should also be in the "flies by mystical means" category, yeah?

One MASSIVE flaw in your math. The term "steel" refers to any number of iron based alloys. This means that "steel" doesn't have a designated weight in and of itself, as you MUST factor in the other materials. There's a big difference in weight when you compare surgical vs industrial steel. Spring steel is light, comparatively speaking. And thats if we assume that a world as technologically inconsistent as pokemon can properly identify steel from other similar looking metals. Thats also assuming that its not made of some fantasy steel alloy, which I wouldn't doubt, as steel on its own isn't black, unless its covered or coated in something (paint, soot, etc).

If you used 20 of the final evolved form of flechling, talonflame,it would probably work because talonflame look very similar to your normal eagle. Also, imagine riding on a taxi lifted up by talonflame, and then the driver says, “Use Flamecharge!” and the talonflame go ten times faster for 5 min, so cool.

bees / charizards / lead bloons should not be able to fly, as their tiny little wings / helium is not enough to lift their fat little bodies off the ground. of course, they fly anyways as they dont care what humans / pokemon masters / monkeys think its impossible

Technically anything can fly no matter it’s wingspan, it just has to go faster the smaller Twinspan is in relation to its body weight

Did you calculate how big the Pokémon world is and it’s mass to figure out the gravity of the Pokémon world? What about air density? The more dense the air is the less lift you need to fly. That also might explain why falling is far less dangerous on the Pokémon world.

Gyarados seems to have more dragon moves than flying moves. He should either be a water/dragon type or have more flying moves.

Thats because the flying type is actually a hidden morph of the psychic type and the move fly is actually a form of psychic which can only be cast locally

Charizard : I’m the best for human transport!. Corviknight : no I can lift multiple people in an IRON thing! ??? : amateurs…. Charizard: what did you say!? Octowl : AMATEURS. ( the part where he said the horned owl was the best reminded me of Noctowl since he has horn like things )

there is one thing that is not noted in this and that is that most of the the flying pokemon that he mention that should not be able to fly are all dragon types, dragons not being a real creature are a bit diffrent from birds.

According to all laws of aerodynamics, Charizard can't fly. Due to its heavy body, it can't lift itself off the ground. But despite that, Charuzard still flies. Because it doesn't care what humans say

Ok ok good theory or it’s not that it’s FLY bc majority of animals/Pokémon with wings can fly, but it’s more of having to carry a 10 year old, so what if some are weak and can’t fly while carrying a human…. Then again pidgey….

Hey matpat and I have a great theory idea! It’s about how magicarp is literally the evolved form of feebass! Contact this e-mail for me to show you my evidence. But the way, I’m a 10 year old who enjoyed watching your videos and I have the permission from my parents to comment here. I hope I can share my theory with you!

Question. Charizard is not a bird!! It’s basically a dragon. But not a dragon type Which is pretty Outrageous. So I’m pretty sure charizard can handle his one wait

According to all known laws of aviation, there is no way a bee should be able to fly. Its wings are too small to get its fat little body off the ground. The bee, of course, flies anyway because bees don't care what humans think is impossible.

Matpat, what about a prehistoric flying dinosaur such as the quetzalcoatlus which weighed approx. 450-550lbs, had a wingspan of 33-36ft and had a max. lift weight of 1800lbs? This flying creature violates the square cube law and yes, there are different theories as to why the dinosaurs were able to violate the SCL, but it’s not proven.

So you are using the cube theory, however, Charizard could have thin wings like bats, while still having a great length and width. And the skin may be super tough to support the weight?
