Mega Pidgeot will be awesome unsing hurricane but in this game, there is no such ability "No Guard",
making it not quite as great as it can be.
Talonflame is also a similar case, as it is only known to be good only with the ability "Gale Wings"
but it does gets strong moves in "Flare Biltz" and "Brave Bird"
Noctowl is not bad too, having a STAB AOE move in "Hyper Voice" but like talonflame, as in the STAB AOE "heatwave" move,
they are lacking in their SATK power base
Swellow is nice, with STAB move in "Brave Bird" but I am bothered by its, not so nice, low ATK power base.
Sure, its SPEED power base is the highest, but being fastest is not always the key to winning
Hmm, I decided to choose Staraptor for this poll,
as I like its high ATK power base and its okayish SPEED power base.
Personally, I will choose Fearow for a early flying type pokemon, in my team.
It can learn false swipe so I can get more pokemons, and it can learn drill run, unlike other "birds" in the game
Of course, I am just a noob, passing by
