adamant, speed boost already helps with speed.

Adamant just misses out on outspeeding base 130s after a boost. Jolly also outspeeds neutral scarfed base 90s after a boost, which Adamant obviously doesn't. However, I don't know if Jolly misses out on crucial KOs that Adamant doesn't. Also I don't know if anything faster than Blaziken at +1 has any business switching in on Blaziken in the first place. In all honesty, Adamant is probably better.

how many answers do you need? lmao adamant bc the reason has been explained a lot.
protect first turn it's out, free +1 speed boost.
and if the opponent had to switch out, that's a free +2.
jolly isn't needed and you lose out on extra attacking power.

If you're smart about using Blaziken, it's easy to get a free Swords Dance. By that point, nothing is stopping you unless they resist all of your attacks. Adamant wouldn't change that aside from making you slower.

There's a point where you're strong enough. There's NEVER a point where you're fast enough. I say go Jolly.


this says otherwise tho that jolly is better
