Skarmory looks strong and intimidating as is.
He doesn't need an evolution.


How a Pokemon looks is irrelevant to how it plays.

They should make it akin to Scyther -> Scizor. Just make it switch from a defensively oriented Poke to something with a lot of offense and speed.


That would be pretty neat.


No, then Skarmory would be able to use Eviolite.

I wouldn't mind a Skarmory pre-evolution, and then having this offensive-based counterpart as a branched evolution for this pre-evo though.

I'd rather have a pokemon that looks cool, than one that's butt ugly but has high stats >_>

It would only have 210 base defense and 105 base special defense with eviolite, no big deal.

But I mostly see Skarmory geting a pre-evolution then anything, because seeing a fully grown metal bird pop out of an egg the size of your head is kinda weird.

absol needs a pre evo with a third stage split.
males get great attack and good defense
females get great attack and good speed

absol is a strong attacker, but his other stats make me cry.

That, and because Mantine, its counterpart, got one.

Mantine was exclusive to Gold, Skarmory was exclusive to Silver.

Mantine's base stats:

HP: 65
Attack: 40
Defense: 70
Special Attack: 80
Special Defense: 140
Speed: 70

Skarmory:

HP: 65
Attack: 80
Defense: 140
Special Attack: 40
Special Defense: 70
Speed: 70

They're the same, but with the physical and special stats swapped.

I would like them to raise his base special attack so he can at least take advantage of his rediculous special move pool, his physical move pool is fairly limited. I can only recall like 4 physical moves worth while to use.

Wow never noticed that, so its stats would be:
HP: 45
Attack: 60
Defense: 120
Special Attack: 20
Special Defense: 50
Speed: 50

What would we cal this pre-evo to skarmory though.

Skarmoy doesn't need an evolution. I don't say that because it wouldn't be cool but most pokemon that tend to get evolutions need them to stay competitive or be decent (Chansey not withstanding).

Skarmory is already fantastic and has a lot of great roles that he fills. He's easily competitive between decent stats, good typing, and an awesome move pool.

Scyther was decent before the evolution but became beastly afterwards. I could see the argument that he didn't need it.
There's really nothing to say.
