First of all, is this for D/P, or is this for the 3rd Generation?

Why would you ever use a Salac Berry on a defensive Skarmory? Why would you actually even use Salac Berry on any Skarmory.

Also, if this is for Advance, your moveset is illegal, because of Drill Peck + Whirlwind. You have to go Roar + Drill Peck or HP Flying + Whirlwind. If this is for D/P, then your set is fine, except that Skarmory would still need Rest or Roost.

Have fun getting nailed by Salamence, Metagross & Tyranitar.

Skarm will always lose easily against any of them, except maybe Thunderpunch-less Metagross

no, it's because it's impossible to get both moves by breeding in Advance, since no pokemon of the same egg group as skarm learns them

Because skarmory isn't a sweeper. It's meant to wall and spike. I recommend not using it in 3v3 matches since it takes more offense in general

Not straitfoward, apart from Drill Peck. Set up 3 Spikes and Roar a lot, Subbing can be useful when you know how to use it (it is very annying to the opponent when you know that they will switch to Magneton). Counter is also an annying move that I have tested and it has worked surprisingly well for a move that is never suggested, Rest is good healing but will be outclassed by Roost when Skarm gets it. Straitforward attacks should be left for other Pokemon.

Haha, since when did Salac Berry help with any of those?

Besides, as Lucavi said, Skarmory can only wall the fully physical versions of those and even then, Taunt DDTar with Rock Slide will beat Skarm.

Seriously, if you present arguments like that, at least try to back them up a little, because I see absolutely no point or meaning in your statement. And no, this post is not just my opinion.

Yup, gotta agree with Echo, Salac Berry is pointless.
