Trivia

Like many other Pokémon, Skarmory's sprite has no change between Generation III and Generation IV.

Origin

Skarmory has much in common with certain species of condor. It also shares characteristics of cranes, birds which are held in high esteem in Japan; such characteristics include a long neck and long legs, and a daggerlike beak.

Name origin

Skarmory is a combination of sky and armory. Its Japanese and French names are likely based on air or are puns on armored. Its German name may be derived from panzer, meaning "tank", and the Latin root aero-, referring to air.
