Long overdue a topic for players convenience regarding the most relevant GSC OU speeds. The format is as follows: Speed + Pokemon + Explanation(Modifier if it exists) and further categorized in Tiers. Not every single speed / pokemon is accounted for but all the OU Viability Ranking were included. Additionally, I only included standard / expected Curse & Paralysis(common found paralysis targets) speeds in Tier 5 and where applicable in order to keep the list as ordered as possible (without unnecessary information). Without further ado I present:

Thanks for posting this, it's a fantastic resource - the Curse / paralysis stuff is incredibly valuable. My one suggestion is to add a 319 section for Roar Raikou which tries to out-slow other RoarKou while still outspeeding Gengar and co; it's specific, but relevant to know.
 
Does 319 priority Raikou still outspeed Gengar if the two are paralysed? Tagging Diophantine because I feel pretty sure he knows and I don't remember how the mechanic for rounding up and down is treated.
They speed-tie due to how rounding down is the norm in Pokemon.
Fear I think it might be worth cleaning up the modifiers part where you detail how paralysis and stat drops lower speed.
Instead of [base stat] [modifier], perhaps mentioning at the top the modifiers and how they affect the pokemon.
You can then just write [speed][pokemon] [modifer name].

Many thanks for this btw.

I'd like to suggest +2 Quagsire as an Agility Recipient. It's a very specific BP target, but at least it outpaces almost every threat (bar Alakazam), which is awesome. +2 Charizard is probably worthy of a mention for similiar reasons (some of the "classic" Agility Pass frameworks are quite weak against Heracross), so I think it's a legimitate pick too. Nice thread, thanks for sharing it
