I vividly recall my initial confusion, desperately seeking a way to teach my Pokémon the art of flight. Fumbling through forums, I realized I wasn’t alone in this quest for airborne companions.
In this article, I’ll uncover the mystery of which Pokémon can be your avian allies and guide you through the skies of Pixelmon.
By the end of this article, you will be able to fly your favorite Pokémon in Pixelmon.
To enable flight for your Pokémon in Pixelmon, a Minecraft mod featuring Pokémon, follow these steps:
- Select a Pokémon Capable of Flight😃: Ensure that you have a Pokémon with the ability to fly. Refer to the Pixelmon Wiki for a comprehensive list of Pokémon capable of flying.
- Mount the Pokémon😌: Engage with a released Pokémon that can be mounted and hop on its back.
- Control the Pokémon😃: Take command of your Pokémon’s movements once mounted. For instance, in Pixelmon Reforged, use the spacebar to ascend, ‘C’ to descend, and the ‘H’ tab to hover.
- Dismount the Pokémon: Conclude the flight by returning or sneaking it to its Poke Ball. This will dismount you from the flying Pokémon.
In Pixelmon, the “Fly” move belongs to the Flying type and is classified as a Physical Move with a power of 90 and an accuracy of 95%🔥.
Here’s a breakdown of how this move operates:
The Pokémon executing the move ascends into the air, becoming impervious to most attacks, except for Gust, Thunder, Twister, Hurricane, Sky Uppercut, and Smackdown, or if the Pokémon was subjected to Lock-On or Mind Reader in the preceding turn. Notably, Gust and Twister inflict double damage during this aerial phase, while Smack Down and Gravity have the effect of nullifying the Fly maneuver.
The player initiates an offensive maneuver directed towards the opponent positioned in front.
Additionally, this particular move serves the dual purpose of facilitating flights to any previously visited town.
What is the smallest Pokémon that you can fly on in Pixelmon?
In Pixelmon, a Pokémon’s capability to fly is dictated by its type and abilities rather than its physical size. Surprisingly, one of the smaller Pokémon that possesses this aerial ability is Pelipper🛸.
This Water/Flying dual-type Pokémon evolves from Wingull at level 25, showcasing that despite its modest size, Pelipper can be both ridden and used for flight within the game.
Based on various conversations within the Pixelmon community, it has come to light that specific Pokémon, such as Charizard and Fearow, exhibit notably faster flight capabilities.
Expanding beyond Pixelmon, in the wider Pokémon world, entities like Tornadus (Therian Forme) and Mega Pidgeot are renowned for their remarkable speed stat, both boasting an impressive 121😱.
When Garchomp spreads its wings, it looks like a jet and can fly fast🕊️. To make Garchomp fly in Pixelmon:
- Get on the Pokémon: Click on your Pokémon that you can ride.
- Control it: Move the Pokémon using keys. In Pixelmon Reforged, press space to go up, C to go down, and H to hover.
- Get off: Stop riding by crouching or putting the Pokémon back in its Poké Ball.
Pidgeot can fly in Pixelmon😉. It’s a mix of Normal and Flying types, evolving from Pidgeotto at level 36. It has shiny, pretty feathers.
