I think Noivern needs to be pure flying

Everything that flies is either part normal, or part dragon.

We need more pure Flying types, no dragon crutches.

Pure Flying doesn't exist because it's a modifier type. It's meant to augment a Pokemon, not be the entirety of what it is. Tornadus was only Pure Flying because it was an ethereal being of wind.

hmmm...id be ok with that. be more ok with noivern being a new type combo besides flying/dragon (which is kinda a new type combo cause this is the first time the combo has gone in that order all other times they where dragon/flying)

the order of the typing almost makes me wonder if its prevo stages could be pure flying.

dragon/poison could have been interesting.

?

I think its should lose that purpose in favor to removing Normal types with flying. That or change Flying to Wind. Augmenting a pokemon is ok, but I don't like seeing normal as a "base type" for these flying creatures

Noivern is the ugliest Mon of Gen 6 so far and I'm just going to catch it and put it on the PC to rot.

modifier type? i mean i get what your saying, but honestly....? technically there is no reason for a modifier type, let alone the fact that would make flying the only modifier type.

imo the problem with the flying type is that its too vague, kinda like the sound type.

true. its a funny type cause it covers pokemon that are airborne, but not all airborne pokemon, and also not all flying types are airborne.
