Nowadays, Pokemon travel on your journey to becoming the best there ever was has evolved. It used to be your feet and a bike. Now, you you can ride on Pokemon in your party as a travel option. Plus, there are built in game mechanics that are basically Pokemon taxi service. The Gala region has their Flying Taxi that utilize Corviknights to fly you from place to place. Well, that got me thinkin Theorists. Did Pokemon get flying RIGHT? Could a Corviknight, or any flying type, actually carry passengers or even THEMSELF? It's time to find out!

My guess is that since the world of pokemon uses different laws of physics, they probably use different mass laws too

Wrong. All Wrong. You would think Theorists and self-proclaimed Nerds would know that POkemon are NOT just Animals. Its a totally different thing. This is not about Wing Span, DUH. How can someone miss that fact??

Are you surprised a bird can carry multiple people at once. It's pretty simple when they drink RedBull.

0:50 most retarded kind of advertising in existence. Why "should you call them!" just because there is one available since you pay them when in actuality this shark is fully funktional? No, no you SHOULD NOT CALL THEM IN THIS SITUATION!

I think that comparing Pokemon flying types to IRL birds is a bit inaccurate as Scizor's Shield Dex Entry says that "It's muscles are made out of Steel" so i think that most likely CorviKnight also has Steel Muscles and thus would proportionately be able to lift way more as Even Scizor (Sword Entry) can lift its claws which account for ⅓ of it's 260 pound body weight.

Basically just watching the pokemon, which does the taxi service, I'm already questioning, if a thing with such body shape could fly at all.

a big reason birds can fly is because of the density of the bones/what ever they are of the wings. they are hollow. plus it makes sense that pokemon would use something else to fly. thats why so many flying moves are just air attacks. plus wondering but what about dragons and wyverns? they can fly and their bodies clearly dont support that.

Or the poké world has a thicker atmosphere, it would also explain all the anime air time, every thing is just that much more buoyant in that atmosphere.

the laws of science are crushed when considering the in-world evidence of a pidgey's wings able to generate enough buffeting-force to launch enemies from its general area [whirlwind attack] your argument is moot. But as far real-world science (which I know is the point) spot-on and awesome way to teach it MatPat

the pokemon universe is the opposite of krypton (the planet) instead of more gravity than earth its less gravity than earth so instead of gaining powers like flight and strength you lose powers

If you take in the account of the gravity of the pokemon world then the pokemon could more easily fight the effects of the gravity of the pokemon world if the gravity is less

Ok, I am only 9 minutes into the video but I had to pause and comment. Are you just completely disregarding training? An average human can deadlift around 335 pounds. The current world record holder can deadlift 1,155 pounds. So if an average bird can lift 15 pounds, what would a trained bird (in a world where training like this does exist) be capable of lifting?
