Skarmory (Japanese: エアームド Eaamudo) is a Steel/Flying-type Pokémon introduced in Generation II.

Biology

Physiology

Skarmory resembles an ostrich clad in steel armor, with long, sharp-taloned legs and a head that looks like wearing a steel helmet covering its beak. Though not so aerodynamic and seemingly heavy in size, a Skarmory can still fly, which is proved by its ability to use the HM Fly and the fact that it flies during its appearance in the Pokémon Mystery Dungeon: Red and Blue rescue team.

Evolution

Skarmory does not evolve.
