Anyone that says punching birds needs to get a clue. Birds have nothing to do with the flying type. Bird type was just a mistranslation.

Flying type should be interpreted as the wind type. Punching wind is not very effective..you try it. Now flying resisting fighting makes sense.

There are different was of looking at it. Don't tell us to get a clue just because you mentioned another way.

Seriously, then why is every bird in the series at least part flying type?

Because they Fly. Therian is right in that Flying-type =/= Bird-type, but it's not a Wind-type.
It's more focused on being airborne.

FYI, "Bird Type" was never a mistranslation, it was presumably the prototype Flying type. Evidence of this can be observed in Generation I's code, through glitches.

My mistake, nearly every bird.

The "try to punch a bird" thing only explains why flying resists fighting, not why fighting is weak to flying.

I mean, if the bird comes right up to your face and starts pecking you, wouldn't you be able to knock it away?

To be fair Penguins and Chickens are incapable of flight or very limited gliding.
