I'd say it's Special Defense. Special attacks are less common, so the stat doesn't really make or break a pokemon. Ask Ledian, it'll know what I'm talking about

In theory, the least important stat is the one that'd hurt the least if minimized and can be circumvented. That's speed. Low speed isn't fatal--especially for already slower Pokemon--and Trick Room can turn it upside down, anyway.

Oddly enough, I like my fast Pokemon.
Go to Gamestop, buy a Steam card, and use it to purchase Ys Origin. You won't be disappointed.

The thing about Speed is even a marginal change in speed has an impact, because the effects of the stat are discrete. Either you go first or not. For example, the difference between 100 and 101 speed is huge (since it allows you to outspeed an even bigger chunk of the metagame) while the difference between 100 Atk vs. 101 Atk isn't

Also why is HP winning? I'd say HP's the most important base stat of all.

The speed stat at a certain point is wasted Bst for certain pokemon. With alot of the slower pokemon, it doesn't matter if they have a speed stat of 50, or of 1. They're still getting outsped.

Maybe a bit overdone, but ehh....

I think it depends on the team. On my team, base speed isn't that important. I have some priority users, a scarfed Pokemon and if I do need more speed, a speed boost Ninjask.

If you voted for HP, you do not understand how any bulky Pokemon works.
