How Pokémon's Most Unorthodox Flyers Really Work

Some Pokémon with the ability to fly, like the three-headed Dodrio above, just look too weird for us to believe they're actually able to do it. This is where Tumblr user Cheesyturtle's serious scientific explanations come in, in the form of animated gifs.

One Pokémon for each Gen. The first one is above, here are the rest and how they stay in the air:

    That is how Golurk flies in one of the movies. It's pretty rad.

    But Tropius has wings? He flies me around in Omega Ruby?

      yeah I dont quite get the artists version of tropius as it shows how it flys in the game - it flaps its wings which look like palm leaves..

      Also I have always given my Golurk the moveset:
      Earthquake, Shadow Punch, Fly, Hammer Arm/Dynamic Punch - He's good at flying :)

      The main ones that should be here are all the small birds though - How you can fly on the back of a spearow or farfetched is a mystery of the ages...

        especially farfetched, who holds onto a freakin' leak with one wing...

    Driftloon is a balloon. How the 'ell do you think it works. He's flying/floating in the sprites and eats babies or something.
