Comment(by josefpktd):

 I never looked at the docstring example closely, discrete distributions
 need an adjusted example

 https://github.com/scipy/scipy/blob/master/scipy/stats/distributions.py#L225

 besides using pdf instead of using pmf, it also uses linspace instead of
 arange for the plot (only integers).

 also the plot might look better with vlines or just 'o' than as a line
 plot

 also I just saw that skellam is missing in the doc list of discrete
 distributions
