choice scarf? His IV and nature favors speed over yours?
Yes, this is a signature.

I think it has a Shy nature, that may be why.


Shy gives u a 11% boost in speed, and a 11% decrease in attack.

Either it's scarfed or you just loose the speed tie everytime. :(

No, they use different moves and have black sludge.

Maybe your Gengar just sucks.

Eat it and plant its Poke Ball on a stake as a warning to all future Gengars.

Probably the IVs, or him winning the speed tie.

Not changing this signature until Blaze the Cat is playable in another Sonic game.

Does it have a Higher speed IV? Does it have a nature that increases speed?

I feel you bro. Last gen Starmie speed ties were the devil. My Starmie couldn't win a damn speed tie against other Starmies. Pissed me off. lol

And it was a speed tie because after the 5th time it happened, I triple checked to make sure everything was okay in my end. "361" speed. So basically I was losing speed ties left and right. (And I know the other Starmies weren't Scarf'd since it used notable things like Leftovers, Life Orb)

F***ing Starmie.

Edit: Hell this s*** goes back
