PVE Offensive Moves Explanation

  • Air Slash should be paired with Sky Attack as Skarmory's primary Flying-type set. 

  • Steel Wing can be paired with Flash Cannon to fulfill a Steel-type role. 

  • Brave Bird is underwhelming overall. 

PVE Defensive Moves Explanation

  • Air Slash is overall superior to Steel Wing on defense, and also provides more meaningful coverage. 

  • Aqua Tail is a more maneuverable albeit weaker alternative.

  • Zen Headbutt provides no meaningful coverage and lacks STAB.

  • Ancient Power is underwhelming in every aspect.

PVE Overview

  • Sky Attack is the only multi-bar option available, and is most likely to be used before Skarmory faints. 

  • Brave Bird has the earliest damage window, but being a 1-bar move makes it difficult to use on defense. 

  • Flash Cannon is the slowest option, but also hits the hardest.

PvP Moveset Explanation

Air Slash + Sky Attack and Flash Cannon

Skarmory is built for Great League PvP. Air Slash, 3.00 DPT (Damage Per Turn) and 3.00 EPT (Energy Per Turn), is a perfectly balanced move to handle Fighting, Grass and Bug type Pokemon while farming good energy for its charge moves. Sky Attack is Skarmory's bread and butter charge move, quick and deadly. Flash Cannon gives Skarmory some flexibility in coverage verses Rock, Ice and Fairy Pokemon. This move-set is built to farm Pokemon like Tropius and apply shield pressure with loaded Sky Attacks

Steel Wing + Sky Attack and Flash Cannon

Now this move-set is geared for unique coverage. You won't be able to beat Tropius as easily, but you can take out some key Ice, Rock and Fairy Pokemon if the meta demands this coverage. Steel Wing, 3.50 DPT (Damage Per Turn) and 2.50 EPT (Energy Per Turn), is geared for key match-up coverage, including itself. You read that right, a Steel Wing Skarmory will beat an Air Slash Skarmory in a 1v1! So if you know the enemy will be running the farming Skarmory, mixing it up to Steel Wing could give you the edge in battle. The same charge moves apply, Sky Attack and Flash Cannon will be your go to charge moves.

PvP Rating Explanation

Great League: 5 / 5

Skarmory is a staple for Great League PvP, featuring great bulk, an excellent typing, and a good moveset. Being well-known as a terrific flier in the meta, it's almost always a mandatory pick due to its 10 resistances and excellent performance in the meta. While it does have solid wins against most picks, its moveset does make it rather toothless against most Electric and Steel-types. Having a 100% win rate against every possible Grass-type in this league is an excellent perk, but also being able to beat most of them with fast moves alone gives Skarmory an insane farming advantage, which lets it fight the next opponent with enough energy for possibly two Sky Attacks. 

Ultra League: 1 / 5 

With a max CP of 2108, Skarmory is mostly limited to use in the Great League. It also has little use in the Ultra League meta which is centered around Giratina. 

Master League: 0 / 5 

I wouldn't recommend bringing your Steel Bird to a Master Fight, keep it Great League Certified!
