There's little need to run both Iron Head and Brave Bird. Better off running SR, Spikes, or Defog over one of them, depending on what you're more scared of.

Why not both? My team isnt really weak to SR and I dont feel the need for it. Plus I feel like Skarm is taunt bait and I like to surprise people. I ran a Drapion in XY and it ruled cause no one knew wtf Drapion did.

Realistically you'll get waayyyy more mileage out of SR than a second STAB move. Dragoon worked for you because it was both unconventional and potent. Without some sort of tangible utility skarmory loses most of its potential- it has no way for it to abuse the switches it forces because its attacks are too weak to do so.

Fun fact! Skarmory... doesn't get SR pre-bank.

I guess but.. I also have no idea how to get Iron Head on it too. o__O It doesn't seem to be an egg move and it's from an ORAS tutor.

This is why I hate stuff like Smogon and Showdown. They say both are allowed on the pre-bank OU but it's not possible to get.

Having just done it, Showdown throws a fit if you try to have a Skarmory with Iron Head or Stealth Rock in pre-bank OU.

Oh weird. I saw it was on there but it didn't say [Illegal] so I assumed it was ok with it.

I went with Brave Bird/Spikes since I didn't have enough time to think of a different Pokemon or moves. I considered Defog or Taunt but I don't think either suited my team too well.

Well today is my fated battle of destiny. I'll let you know how it goes later.

When bank comes out, I think I'm gonna try to get a SR Marowak and Iron Head Skarmory.
