Best flying type in Pokemon Scarlet and Violet

The best Flying type in Pokemon Scarlet and Violet is also the rarest Pokemon in the game, Charizard.

Charizard was available for two weekends in 2022 as the seven-star Tera Raid Battle boss. At the time, players had the opportunity to catch one Charizard. After the event, the Pokemon became unavailable.

Because it is not part of Paldea’s Pokedex, Charizard cannot be found in the wild. If you have one on your team, you are a lucky one.
