One thing I've noticed about most skewb scramblers is that they often have U and B moves right next to each other. Since they are on the same "axis", it doesn't make sense to have something like U' B or U' B' U' B U', but that type of thing still happens frequently with all the skewb scramblers that I've seen. Is there a good reason for this?
Thank you,

U and B are not on the same axis. You should be holding the cube with one edge pointing toward you. The U corner is the corner farthest from you on top; the B corner is the corner farthest from you on bottom. This means U and B are not on the same axis.

If you're not sure of this, try a scrambler that gives a picture and check the resulting scramble. You'll see that the U and B corner must be as I describe to get the correct result.
