Hello, this thread is meant for quick access of all Pokemon in the RU Metagame (and viable NU ones as well) and their respective Speed stats. The format is as follows:

Speed / Pokemon / Base Speed / Nature (+Spe, -Spe, or Neutral) / EVs / +Boost(Pokemon holding a Choice Scarf will usually be marked as +1)
Example: 328 / Flygon / 100 / +Spe / 252 / +0 This is a Flygon with 252 Speed EVs with a Speed-positive nature (Jolly), which hits 328 Speed.

Post below if you feel something needs to be added.

Reserving this post for something cute like a changelog. Also I plan to also put in a dedicated Trick Room section once I think of all the abusers

Great job! Just a few things I'd suggest:

- Adding +2 Kommo-o at 538, same speed tier as Kingdra. The set isn't as common but its potential of outspeeding nearly the entire meta after a boost, in particular weather sweepers bar Kingdra, can be interesting to note.
- Adding Durant with a positive nature at +1, so 522. While Adamant Durant has valuable power and a good speed tier over several scarfers, the ability to, again, outspeeding dangerous weather sweepers in this meta is a point I'd consider in its favour when thinking of using that set

Pretty sure hawlucha shouldn't be on the speed tiers, since iirc it's considered banned unless council votes unban on it.
It's usable for now so might as well

You might add QD Ribombee since it's a common set (52.535% in 1630 last month) the speeds are 571 Positive +1, 520 Neutral +1, and 347 Neutral +0
Ribombee itself is pretty rare and sort of niche as hell; even if I added it I'd only add max speed timid (specs is the only good set)

You might want to add pangoro (+0, 236 and +0, 215), as it is becoming a dominant force in RU.
Woops I overlooked that. added

You should add 216 Neutral Nidoqueen (242), one of the most commons spreads used to outspeed Honch Adamant
Already have max speed queen, which is honestly enough

I am missing Feraligatr:
280 / Feraligatr / 78 / + Spe / 252 / 0
420 / Feraligatr / 78 / + Spe / 252 / +1

And a quick remark regarding the OP:

(Pokemon holding a Choice Scarf will usually be marked as +2)
I might be a dumb Newbie but shouldn't it say "marked as +1" since Scarf gives you +1? Again, if I am misunderstanding something I apologise but the speedtier is a very useful ressource for beginners and they could get confused by this potential little mistake.
