Skarmory has more defenses, immunities and less weaknesses(plus I like it a little more than Salamence) but I believe Salamence is stronger stat-wise. I already am planning to have another steel type on my team too though so I'm not sure which one to have. Sorry if this is obvious to others but I'm not sure. Any suggestions?

That depends on the rest of your team. I would recommend Salamence since in game, you need to power through your enemies and not stall them. However, just catch a Skarmory that has sturdy. You'll need it when you face the chandelier

Salamence is the better option since it can mega evolve and has much higher stats as it has a great learnset and can be tought great moves it's ability is also excellent as normal moves become flying and gain 20% more power to normal that now become flying moves

You can't get its mega stone until you beat the game. Even after that, you need 64 bp to but one. The only other way to get it is if someone trades you one, but that's very unlikey.
