C/D Did I just face a Hacker?

I just had a match on Pokemon Random Wi-fi battle where my opponent lead off with a Skarmory.

He outspeed my Mamoswine which is 259 (Neutral Max speed) and used Stealth Rock.

I used Icicle Spear.

Next turn, He used Icy Wind.. I used Earthquake.

First, I thought he was scarfed since he out sped me.

Second, does Skarmory even learn Icy Wind?

Icy Wind is a tutor move in B/W2

Could've just been a Jolly Skarmory. With Jolly Skarmory's speed caps at 262

According to (Black 2/White 2 Move Tutor Attacks) Skarmory does learn Icy Wind :)

yes it does.

i don't why someone would hack the move ICY WIND.
if you were gonna do that give a move with DECENT base power. like ice beam or blizzard.
in short you'd have to pretty stupid to hack icy wind on any pokemon.
You either die a hero or live long enough to see yourself become a villain.

Skarmory maxes speed at 262 and can learn icy wind. Pretty bizarre set-up though.

Why would you use EQ?

D, Skarmory learns Icy Wind via move tutor and can out speed neutral max EV mamo if it has a beneficial speed nature and heavy EV investment.

EDIT: Ninja'd to hell and back.

This. Y'all are focusing on the unimportant stuff when the real question should be, "Why the heck are you using Earthquake against a damn Skarmory?"
