Trivia

  • Skarmory is the only Pokémon that can learn Steel Wing by leveling up.
  • Mew is the only non-dual type Pokémon that is able to learn Steel Wing.
    • Also, Mew is the only Pokémon that can learn Steel Wing who doesn't have wings (other than Smeargle). This is obviously because Mew can learn every existing TM moves.
