'''Fly''' (Japanese: '''{{tt|そらをとぶ|Sora wo Tobu}}''' ''Fly'') is a damage-dealing {{type|Flying}} [[move]] introduced in [[Generation I]]. It is [[HM02]] in [[Generation]]s {{gen|I}} through {{gen|VI}} and [[TM76]] in [[Generation VII]]. In [[Pokémon Let's Go, Pikachu! and Let's Go, Eevee!]], it is [[TM14]].
The user can now be hit by {{m|Gust}}, {{m|Thunder}}, {{m|Twister}}, and {{m|Whirlwind}} during the semi-invulnerable turn of Fly, and will receive double damage from Gust and Twister.
The user may also be hit in the air if it was previously targeted by {{m|Lock-On}} or {{m|Mind Reader}}, and then struck the following turn, unless said move was {{m|Magnitude}}, {{m|Earthquake}}, or {{m|Fissure}}. Swift, Bide, and Transform no longer hit on their own during the semi-invulnerable turn of Fly.
In this generation, due to a glitch, when {{m|Lock-On}} or {{m|Mind Reader}} are in effect, the moves {{m|Attract}}, {{m|Curse}}, {{m|Foresight}}, {{m|Mean Look}}, {{m|Mimic}}, {{m|Nightmare}}, {{m|Spider Web}}, and {{m|Transform}} cannot hit targets in the semi-invulnerable turn of Fly, and moves cannot lower stats of targets in the semi-invulnerable turn of Fly ([[status move]]s such as {{m|String Shot}} will fail, and [[additional effect]]s of moves such as {{m|Bubble}} will not activate).
====Generation III====
====Generation IV onwards====
Fly's base [[power]] was [[List of modified moves|increased]] from 70 to 90. The user is now unable to avoid moves used by Pokémon with the Ability {{a|No Guard}} during the semi-invulnerable turn of Fly, and unable to avoid moves if it has No Guard. It can also be hit with {{m|Hurricane}}, {{m|Smack Down}}, and {{m|Thousand Arrows}}. If Smack Down or Thousand Arrows hits, the user of Fly will be knocked down, cancelling the move.
If a [[Power Herb]] is held by the user, Fly can be executed in one turn.
===Outside of battle===
Players can fly to locations they have visited. Most possible Fly destinations are places with [[Pokémon Center]]s, primarily cities and towns, but other significant locations can be flown to as well. Generally, simply entering a flyable location is all that is required to be able to use Fly for that location. There are some exceptions, however, such as [[Opelucid City]] in {{2v2|Black|White}} where the player must first view the [[Team Plasma]] event, [[Lacunosa Town]] in {{2v2|Black|White|2}} where the player must first encounter [[Professor Juniper]] and [[Bianca]], and [[Ever Grande City]] in {{3v2|Ruby|Sapphire|Emerald}} where the player must first climb the waterfall. The [[Johto]] {{gdis|Battle Frontier]]|IV}}, by contrast, can automatically be accessed after the [[National Pokédex]] is obtained.
In [[Generation II]], the player cannot use Fly to move between Kanto and Johto. In {{2v2|HeartGold|SoulSilver}}, this is changed, and the player can now use [[Indigo Plateau]] or {{rt|26|Kanto}} as a way station between regions.

==In the anime==
<!--Do NOT add any instance of Pokémon simply flying, the move must be commanded by the trainerTrainer and used offensively. The act of flying does NOT mean it used the MOVE Fly.-->

====Spin-offSide series games====
====Spin-off series games====
* In {{g|Colosseum}}, {{p|Charizard}} and {{p|Salamence}} dive into the ground on the second turn of Fly.
* Many Pokémon noted for their ability to fly over long distances are unable to learn this move, such as {{p|Yanmega}}, which is easily capable of transporting an adult in flight according to its [[Pokédex]] entry from {{game|HeartGold and SoulSilver|s|HeartGold}}. Conversely, Pokémon such as {{p|Vullaby}} can learn it despite Pokédex entries stating they are incapable of flight.
* Despite [[Bug (type)|Bug]]/[[Flying (type)|Flying]] being the second most common type combination, the only Bug types being able to learn Fly are {{p|Volcarona}} and {{p|Genesect}}, which are not Flying-types.
* In {{g|Colosseum}}, {{p|Charizard}} and {{p|Salamence}} dive into the ground on the second turn of Fly.
* When {{p|Doduo}} and {{p|Dodrio}} use Fly in the 3D side-series games, they will be shown running in midair.
* The {{tc|Sightseer}} who gives out [[TM76]] (Fly) in {{pkmn|Sun and Moon|Pokémon Sun, Moon}}, {{pkmn|Ultra Sun and Ultra Moon|Ultra Sun, and Ultra Moon}} says that although the machine is an HM in [[Johto]] because of its rarity, it is "just another TM" in [[Alola]].
* {{p|Corviknight}} will serve the role of taxi Pokémon in {{pkmn|Sword and Shield|Pokémon Sword and Shield}}, which replaces Fly as an [[HM]].
** Additionally, it bears a resemblance to the bird-like shape seen flying the player character when Fly is used outside of battle.
