Actually, I think Spikes is better for Skarmory. There are a lot of other Pokemon that can utilize Stealth Rock more effectively, and access to Spikes is a niche that sets Skarmory apart from other hazard setters, and its rival Celesteela. However, Stealth Rock is still a viable option if your team lacks a rocker.

A Pokemon that sets up Stealth Rocks. I think I might have made that term up lol.

I think Stealth Rock is better. You could use it to half Fire/Flying Pokémon's health or Bug/Flying Pokémon's health and stop Focus Sash Pokémon.

Keep in mind that either one could be good depending on the situation.
