Remember in the first generation when you wanted to use Gengar against a Psychic type, and it just went awfully both ways? This is how I feel when using Fighting types against Flying types. I don't do it often, but when it happens, I just think to myself, "Why did it have to be this way?" I mean I know, I could use Thunder, Rock, or even Ice, but seriously? Just... UHG! One of those things y'know?

Flying resists fighting. A good chunk of flying types are mixed with normal therefore the resistance becomes neutral. Although in return they avoid ghost types.

So why don't you hate Skarmory, then? Or Murk/Honchkrow.

It's just a Normal/Flying bird theme for every generation, and they tend not to have too high of base stats or movepools. Personally I love birds so I welcome this theme but I wish they could be a bit better in their evolutions.

Because their types are more specific and do not simply entail a bland sense of state. For example, Honchkrow fits a specific role, but Normal/Flying simply can be specified as "general birds". Also, they aren't as abundant as Normal/Flying types.
