Their mechanic is poor design. A level 1 Ratatta going before a level 100 Deoxys-S just because it used Quick Attack (I am not raging over losing to a Ratatta, btw) is silly. I think it would be much better if these attacks simply would calculate your speed at +50% if you use them. In Extreme Speed's case, it would use double the user's speed. Abilities such as Prankster would add +50% speed to non-attack moves.

Priority prevents sweeps. It's never any fun to be swept.
So I actually like Priority the way it is, though Prankster/Gale Wings is kinda broken.

Plot Twist: A pokemon is released with an ability which reverses all Priority. Negative becomes positive and vice a versa

Priority Roar becomes a thing again.

only if that Pokemon is out on the field or switching it out still causes the field to be reversed? like an auto Trick Room upon switching in?
This is the internet. You know the price it comes with when you have entered the filth and scum of this world.

I'm ok with priority moves, as most of them aren't all that strong. It is annoying to be fake out'd though... :(

The Pokemon with the ability would need to be balanced of course - moves like Roar would not be on the moveset and the effect would disappear if the pokemon leaves the field

A running toddler is faster than a walking triathlete. There's nothing off about its the theme, and let's be honest, this is the same game where Kangaskhan hatches with a baby already in its pouch.
