I'm making a monotype flying team for my Firered. Can I get some help with it?

The pokemon on my team will be:
Gyarados
Pidgeot
Fearow
Farfetch'd
Dodrio
Dragonite

Needs more Gligar and Skarmory over Farfetch'd and Pidgeot.

Also, maybe tell us what you're planning to give them as moves/abilities/EVs/natures/items...

Eh, I don't suggest Mono teams, ESPECIALLY Fliers. There are too many Mon packing things like Ice Beam and Thunderbolt. You'll be killed before you can set up. Gligar can take Electric attacks, but one Ice Beam and it's dead. Skarm fears Thunderbolt. Dragonite dies to Blizzard.

Mono teams are usually more trouble than they're worth, but meh. List the things Echo mentioned and I'll see what I can do to help.

Drop Farfy for Articuno so you at least have something to resist Ice Beam (yes, Gyarados works kind of but he's still fairly frail and has the nasty 4x to Thunderbolt). Zapdos with Light Screen is almost a necessity here, probably over Pidgeot. Fearow can be replaced by Gligar to help cover up your Rock Slide weakness.

From what I've heard mono-type teams are fun while versing other mono-type teams, I think that there is or there is going to be a mono-type team comp.

You should have a Fire/Flying type a la Charizard or moltres.

If you're going against other Mono teams it could be fun, unless you have to fight Electric/Ice Mono teams. *Shrug.* It would indeed be a good idea to stick in Zard/Tres and Zappy, so you have backup against the Ice/Electric Mon. Of course, something like an Arty or a fast Flier that can learn Ice Beam is needed for the Rock Mon.

add charizard or moltres
add gligar or aerodactyle

and if theres no fear of having ice moves used on you, i guess jumpluff or tropius to reduce damage from electric moves, or a zapdos :eh:

Movesets, Natures and EVs would be helpful (:
