That really is odd, since Farfetch'd CAN learn Fly...

My guess is because it wouldn't be able to flap its wings while holding the leek, and maybe it's not skilled enough to wield said leek in its beak or talons.


It's because it would require GF to make an entirely new model for them.

It seems like GF just didn't want to make a separate animation for all those grounded flying types.

Hawlucha is just a guy in a bird suit, notice how the beak and his mouth are not actually the same body part?

The real reason is that GF got lazy. All of the pokemon that can attend Sky Battles are always flying / hovering above the ground. Even Xatu is flying above the ground... while maintaining its signature totem pose, which looks ridiculous. Pokemon that put their feet on the ground cannot attend Sky Battles, even if they're Flying type or have Levitate.

Examples include Hawlucha, who's a Flying type that can learn Fly, and Gengar, who has Levitate and evolves from Gastly and Haunter, both of which also have Levitate and CAN attend a Sky Battle.

The entire reason why certain pokemon who SHOULD be able to attend a Sky Battle can't is because Gamefreak decided to use only one idle animation, and didn't bother giving them a flying / levitating animation.
