I have nabbed eight, but I feel like the number should be much higher. Oh well.

Are they good for fighting gyms, or are they just a pretty face?

Seems like they’d be OK, but I’m not the expert on this. I’d defer to our more knowledgeable folks like Las Dos, Los Ghost and El Gerd, but they have been strangely silent the last day or so. Almost suspiciously silent.

I’ve seen 13, caught 12.  Their CP puts them in prestiging range at any level you’re likely to find or hatch them at, but they’re not great attackers or defenders.  I’ve used a double flying move Skarmory to prestige against an Exeggutor, and it did fine, especially since its steel/flying typing resists all of Exeggutor’s attacks.  I’ve heard the double-steel move ones are good against Snorlax, but I haven’t tried it.  Lots of moves are weak against steel (including Psychic and Fairy, which are common with good defenders these days), so even though its HP is not all that impressive, Skarmory survives a bit longer than you think it would.  Cool looking, but overall kind of meh.

I’ve caught 14 of them. The highest CP I’ve see. Is 1540. They don’t typically have good IV’s so they’re not good for gym battles

Yes, caught two, saw two but really three. Thought it was going to be like the Aerodactyl of Gen 2. In the sense of being found in some area of Houston only. i.e. Aerodactyl are generally Downtown. So the first one I saw was at Ikea, and I click to capture it, but I got an error message and it disappear. It didn’t register as being seen. Second one, first one I saw and caught was when I drove in to the City of Bellaire/610 because I thought that’s where they can only be found. It was an hour drive. Third one, second one saw and caught was on the street right next to a WalMart close by my house- five minutes drive.

Woohoo I finally catched one and I guess Niantic got tired of hearing me complaining about catching Pineco.
