Not every Skarmory carries Shed Shell. Magnezone is better in the long run when compared to Jolteon considering Jolteon is very frail. Magnezone can at least hold its own and its Steel typing gives it some decent resistances and other steel types such as Scizor, Ferrothorn etc do not carry Shed Shells and thus can be OHKO'd (maybe 2HKO with Ferro) by Hp Fire. Jolteon is slammed by Scizor and can't do anything to Ferrothorn.
