2019 Ultra Series VGC Speed Tiers

Welcome to the 2019 Ultra Series VGC Speed Tiers hub. This list is divided into Restricted Pokémon, Mega Pokémon and Standard Pokémon. It will be ordered from highest speed stat to lowest speed stat. Approximately the top 150 Pokémon used on Showdown and their speeds are listed. The lists will only include 252/0 EVS, 31/0 IVs, Natures, Base Speed and the most relevant Speed Boosts.

Some notes and pointers about Speed:

Moves / Abilities:
  • The fastest Pokémon will move first in their move’s priority bracket. For example if two Pokémon use Fake Out, a +3 priority move, the faster Pokémon will use Fake Out first. If one Pokémon uses Extreme Speed and another Pokémon uses Return, the Extreme Speed user will always move first regardless of speed since it is a +2 priority move vs a +0 priority move
  • Every number in Pokémon will round down with the exception of Mind Blown. This means that if a 252/Adamant Landorus-T holds a Choice Scarf which has 143 speed(214.5 after the Choice Scarf), it will have 214 speed instead of 215.
  • Tailwind, Chlorophyll, Swift Swim, Slush Rush, Sand Rush, Surge Surfer and Unburden boosts speed by +2(x2) in their respective conditions, Choice Scarf boosts speed by +1(x1.5), Icy Wind/Electroweb reduces speed by -1(x⅔) and Thunder Wave/Iron Ball reduces speed by -2(x1/2). Trick Room reverses the speed order but follows the same rules about priority.
  • Abilities that activate on the switch in will proc in order of the Pokémon’s speed. This is extremely useful in figuring out the speeds of the opponent’s Pokémon. Eg if a Choice Scarf Landorus-t and an Assault Vest one are sent out on turn 1, the Choice Scarf Landorus-T’s Intimidate will proc first. The exceptions to this rule are Unnerve which will always proc before other abilities and primal reversions which will proc after other abilities. These abilities will still activate against each other based on speed.
Turn Order / Switching / Tiebreakers
  • The turn order of Pokémon is decided before the turn starts. So if your Prankster Tornadus uses Tailwind, your timid Kyogre will still have 156 speed on that turn, not 312. Also since generation 7, Mega Evolutions happen before the turn order is decided so they get the speeds of their Mega Evolution the same turn they Mega Evolve.
  • The fastest Pokémon will switch out first if two Pokémon switch.
  • If both Pokémon have the same speed, they both have a 50% chance being the first to move or activate their abilities on the switch in.
