Sad but true, Gyarados isn't a bird. If you like the RMT do leave a luvdisc so I know you liked it :) Yeah Latios is a bird according to most of the characteristics. Archeops was ok, but defeatist is just too horrible, and Acrobatics + Head Smash is strong, sadly Impish Groudon and Giratina walls it.
Updated with importables for many bird teams which are successful, some sucks, such as those with Noctowl, Mandibuzz and Swellow. Those who suck are not included sorry. Cresselia is added because she is a duck after all and ducks are birds. Porygon2 is not tried yet because it can't fly, is vulnerable to Spikes and is really slow.
The result of the poll shows that Honchkrow really is the best bird excluding Ho-Oh. From the test results ( check replays ), Honchkrow really is the best and most threatening out of all the birds due to his decent movepool and access to cool abilities. Sucker Punch rapes Mewtwo and can used in a pinch to revenge kill it, if the opponent tries to play smart and use non attacking moves instead, Brave Bird is always the best move and it will deal massive damage to almost anything including Arceus.
<&GreatSage> if nothing else it's a "trickroom teaches pokemon" thread
<&GreatSage> which is reason enough to keep it
<@Colonel_M> I once heard Jibaku considered Scarf Gyarados for his Ubers team
