how do I transpose piano to flute? I have never tried before and I've only been in band for 3 years.

They should be exactly the same for a flute. So you can basically just play the highest part of the arrangements here if that's what you want to do.

Any specific sheet?   
Like Greg said, play the top staff. If there's multiple notes, try one of them; usually the bottommost one.

alright thanks :) but i'm stumped on the pokemon yellow gym sheet it has some LOW notes

Move them up 2 octaves.  Easy peasy.

Why 2? 1 Octave should do..

2 is an even number.
If it were 1 octave it would be a bit odd.

uh? Elaborate.

Though I really hope for your sake that your reasoning isn't an awful pun. 1 octave mightn't be as odd as it seems

Moving it up one octave is the equivalent of doubling the frequency, so it wouldn't be that odd. 
Octo in latin means "eight", so it would be 1*8=8

well because assuming the melody would be played in octave 4 octave 5 is a bit too low for a flute isn't it?

Actually octave 5 is fairly comfortable for flute unless I'm mistaken.

Fuck logic, that shit is boring, lame and does not always support my opinions.

FierceDeity

If an octave were uncomfortable for an instrument, that instrument would not be written with that octave inside of the staff. Flute is in concert pitch with no octave transposition, so you can safely assume that octave 5 isn't too low XD
As for exact/realistic range, Google yields fairly accurate results. I just started playing flute yesterday for a practicum, and I can already play C4 - G5. Only goes up from there (unless you have a B footjoint, in which case you can go down one halfstep more. Woo).

Alright thanks! I'll try one octave first then i'll see if sounds right. If not then ill try 2.
