I was making a mono flying team, when i had formed an idea that would totally catch people off guard. CHOICE BANDED SKARMORY. Ur probably thinking im crazy, but ive tried this set and it 1HKO'd a latios with brave bird on the switch. Im know nothing about calculating stats like other ppl do, but im assuming he didnt have a big defensive investment. Choice band Skarmory may lack a good movepool, but skarmory still has some sort of viable atacks that are useful. (Brave bird is a big staple on this set becuz it can pretty much leave a huge dent in many of the so called top tier threats) Anyways, heres the set Ev's : 255 attack, 4 defense, and 249 speed Skarmory @ choice band trait: sturdy Brave bird: Hits most pokemon incredibly hard Rock slide: fire type coverage Night slash: trolls trainers that use psychic types Iron head: good stab move + becomes even more annoying than defensive skarmory sometimes. Well, this is my skarmory set that i have created, please read it and tell me your thoughts about a banded skarmory in the OU tier instead of that stupid defensive staller that doesnt have a good brave bird anyways cuz of lack of attack on defensive skarmory.
