    Default An Armory of Skarmorys


    Skarmory has always been a defensive staple throughout the generations thanks to its Steel/Flying typing and high base defense. These Skarmory are Impish (+Defense,-SpAtt) to accent that quality. Although Steel typing lost its resistance to Dark & Ghost attacks (I blame Honedge for that), they did gain an edge against the new Fairy typing as its STAB Steel Wing is super-effective against Fairy types.
    Skarmory can take advantage of its defensive ability to set up layers of Spikes, a level up move, and use Roost to recover damage that it takes.

    These steel birds will come with the following egg moves:

    • Stealth Rock - Rock - An entry hazard that causes damage based on an opponent's weakness to the Rock-type moves. This gives Skarmory a second entry hazard that is Super-effective against its nemesis Fire types and can take away half of the HP from Talonflame and Charizard when they enter the battle. Stealth Rock has been limited in this generation to its users, but Skarmory is one that can still use it.
    • Whirlwind - Normal - Blows away the opponent at the end of the turn and drags out one of its teammates. A great partnering move to go with its entry hazard moves to rack up damage and force additional switches.
    • Brave Bird - Flying (STAB) - Power 120, Acc 100 - It tucks in its wings and charges from a low altitude. It also damages the user by 33% of the HP damage given.
    • Drill Peck - Flying (STAB) - Power 80, Acc 100 - Less powerful than Brave Bird, but doesn't have the recoil damage.


    These all have IVs of 31/31/31/X/31/31 and come with two abilities. Sturdy prevents Skarmory from being knocked out with one hit as long as it is at full health and Keen Eye prevents Skarmory's accuracy from being lowered.


    Sturdy ♀ 3/5 (sasuke715,UnderFudge)
    Sturdy ♂ 1/8 (Sabin,Slimjim367,Darkrai13,Mario,God Kaze,Sorgatani)
    Keen Eye ♀ 1/1
    Keen Eye ♂ 3/3


    These are in my Pokemon Y game and if you haven't registered me then leave your friend code in the post along with a nickname if you prefer. My Friend code is 2466-2668-6626.
    I'm not looking for any particular pokemon. If there is something you bred, that is great, other than that just send over something you don't want. Heart Scales are always appreciated in this generation as I bypass many level up moves to keep the egg moves intact during breeding.
