I actually have a similar question. I'll be battling my friend's Haxorus, whose speed is around 130, 140-ish once it's been cut back down to lvl. 50. My Espeon's speed is 150, 160-ish when lvl. 50. He uses one Dragon Dance and he's faster. How is this? Do stat altering moves really add/remove so much?

I know his item of choice on his Haxorus is a Focus Scarf to avoid 1HKOs from special attacks, and his prefered moves are EQ and Outrage, so I doubt it's priority.

Would anyone care to shed some light on this? Maybe I have his speed stat wrong... Even so, my Espeon's faster than his by quite a bit, so even if I do have his speed wrong, a single DD to outspeed me puzzles me.


one stage of stat boost= a 50% raise

my nature for mawille is adamant. Still though the difference is substanital. It is a Lapras?? can't just always be a coincidence that peoples from online there pokemon are slower by stats but are somehow faster, there must be a concrete reason. Unless lm looking at the wrong things. l am looking at pokemon Database and it justs give a number next to a stat? same as smorgon and so my number is larger for speed but slower in gameplay??

l just played again and there lapras was quciker than my mega mawille(who had been in for 3 turns already). l just don't get this. PLease explain.


That one is easy: Lapras has base speed of 60, Mawile and Mega Mawile only 50.

What's your Garchomp's speed at level 50?

1 stage speed increase is +50%, so 130 x 1.5 = 195. The stat buffs are pretty dramatic in pokemon.


Sweet baby corn, that's ridiculous. I guess now I can feel less guilty being a butt to him opening with Haxorus.

They're using quick attack.
I'm not saying He's batman, I'm just saying no-ones ever seen Darth Vader and batman in the same room together.

no i have perfect ivs for speed and for my zapdos perfect ev speed. Obvisously not for mawille, but l don't think they only used the same move. What else could it be? what other items besides choice scarf?


You don't think?

Choice scarf increases speed by 50% and so does dragon dance.... You must have just made an error. Also when accounting for the 50% increases you have to multiply this on top of the speed boosted nature of the opposing Pokemon as well as the Ev's. Go to Smogon or some other Pokemon site and compare the base speeds taking these things into consideration.

My only thought as I read this thread, that and this TC needs to do some research before claiming hax =/.
