Does its flying/steel type really make it good enough? Is there any other reasons why lots of people like to use skarmory?

I like it because it's straight up pimpin. lol. No for real, its a real good pokemon with good speed and good attack. It's defense is pretty good, but I have one and it's real good.

IN competitive battling, it is really good with spikes, which is a main reason why people use it.
In-game is not really as good in my opinion.

Spikes with good Defense.

Makes a great physical wall, especially with the creation of Roost since it has no physical weakness. It's only two weaknesses are Electric and Fire, but those can be easily prolonged with Whirlwind or Roar.

Spikes is a move that "scatters spikes around the enemy team." In other words, whenever your opponent switches/sends out a pokemon, that pokemon takes damage. This in combination with Skarmory's Whirlwind makes for a formidable challenge.

Wait it says whirlwind is a egg move so would that mean if it breeds it automatically gets that move or does 1 of the parents have to have it?

A Male pokemon of the same egg group as Skarmory (Flying) that knows Whirlwind must be bred with a female Skarmory.

For Example:

Male Starly with Whirlwind + Female Skarmory = Lvl. 1 Skarmory with Whirlwind

i find it is easier to just be lazy and teach it roar with a tm.

Ditto, but people argue: "What about pokemon with Soundproof?" Yeah... like anyone uses those, lol.

Other people have covered most of it, but

A) Good defense, makes for a good physical wall.
B) GREAT typing. Only weak to Fire and Electric, resists 9 types, and immune to 2.
C) Probably the best spiker, unless im forgetting something.

Just so you know, Roar is just as good as Whirlwind, so instead of doing all of that breeding you can just teach him the TM.
