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? --- "You never know the true value of a moment, until it becomes a memory" ~ Naz http://allice.imgur.com *Last updated on 08/25/13*

Icy Wind is a tutor move in B/W2 --- http://25.media.tumblr.com/tumblr_mdtqd6EJTY1qlpahho1_500.jpg My husbando <3 QWILFISH for Smash 4! Also waiting on Qwilfish's Megalution, QWILSHARK!

According to http://www.serebii.net/pokedex-bw/227.shtml (Black 2/White 2 Move Tutor Attacks) Skarmory does learn Icy Wind :) --- "I bring life"

http://www.serebii.net/pokedex-dp/227.shtml 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. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=CfDtJvYrFD4

Skarmory maxes speed at 262 and can learn icy wind. Pretty bizarre set-up though. --- "Not everything is a lesson. Sometimes you just fail." - Dwight Schrute "I don't get high, life keeps me at a decent height." -Lupe Fiasco
