1v1 Speed Tiers

Art by AmirAlexander
This is an amalgamation of all the Speed benchmarks relevant to the 1v1 metagame. They are organized from slowest to fastest. Speeds defaulted as the highest Speed possible given the Pokemon's most common nature/s, with slow Speed (0 EVs) only being included if a large amount of spreads (about 20% or more) run 0 Speed EVs. This is to show the fastest possible Speed a Pokemon will realistically attain, so that one may teambuild as safely as possible. Speed creeping for a 'standard set' is not reliable in the long run, and 'optimal' sets will change constantly, and your opponent can often shift their EVs to suddenly beat you. Relevant benchmarks needed to outspeed certain Speed tiers/Pokemon after a boost are also included. For reference's sake, this is the key used for the 1v1 Speed Tiers (based on Rosa's speed tier key):

Key
Min Speed
= 0 IVs + Reducing Nature + 0 EVs
-Nature = Reducing Nature + 0 EVs
Bulky = 0 EVs
Fast = 252 EVs
Max Speed = Increasing Nature + 252 EVs
Any instance of a Speed increasing item, ability, or relevant element will also be mentioned.

Bolded text
will be used to indicate particularly important benchmarks (A- or above in VR)

Low Speed Scarf Dragapult: 20 Spe to outspeed Scarf Hydreigon. Useful so that you can dump the rest in the attacks for a mixed set.

Star Fast Scarf Excadrill and Max Speed Excadrill, excadrill is one of the top pokemon, so the speeds for its best 2 sets should be noted as significant

Also add Mimikyu benchmarks to speed benchmarks 214 iirc from last generation (on both +1 and -1)

Bulky Centiskorch at 166

Bulky Grimmsnarl is at 156, not 154

Fast Rillaboom at 269, max speed at 295

Fast/Max Speed Kommo-o at 269/295

Add fast / max speed barraskewda at 371/408

Also bewear is on that list twice, once at 154 which is wrong and once at 156 which is correct

good catch with mimikyu

I'll add centiskorch and rilla but I have literally not seen a single kommo-o or barraskewda at all

I would like Choice Scarf Durant to be added. This is a main set of the Pokemon and beats some Pokemon that Band doesn't like Cinderace, Scarf Vish/Zolt, and Scarf Darm.

374: Speed to outspeed Choice Scarf Dracovish (373)

This has been updated to include all Pokemon on the VR list (plus Hawlucha and Salazzle) as of 5/22/20, with speed tiers based on April usage stats. The benchmarks have also been updated.

If you think something is missing, comment on this thread and I'll add if it makes sense.

Speed Tiers have been updated. The OP should now have all new DLC 2 additions that are on the current VR.

Some of the additions may become irrelevant in the next few months, and there may be a few examples I have forgotten. If you see anything you feel should be included, post it uwu
