i should have posted this a while ago, but i forgot to do so. so here's the deal. i have a draft of the oras ou speed tiers below that i'd like you all to proofread. post here if there are any irrelevant / redundant speeds that i should remove, and follow the format below if you think a new threat should be added to the list.

format: Final Speed Stat / Pokemon / Base Speed / Nature / EVs / Boost / Altered IVs (if necessary)

example: 347 / Diancie (Mega), Latias, Latios / 110 / +Spe / 244 / 0 / 30 IV [Hidden Power Fire]

I can't post the form or w/e it's called right now as I'm on my phone, but Hawlucha is missing for when unburden is activated. Whether or not this was intentional or an oversight, I'm not sure, but I feel it should be on here since it's somewhat common and used exclusively because of Unburden (even tho it's at the very top of the list iirc).

Are we allowed to discuss here now it's been moved? This should probably be pinned btw because it's a really important resource.
Anyway, Tyrantrum should probably be added.

604 / Tyrantrum / 71 / +Spe / 252 / +2
530 / Tyrantrum / 71 / Neutral / 252 / +2
265 / Tyrantrum / 71 / +Spe / 252 / 0
241 / Tyrantrum / 71 / Neutral / 252 / 0

I think Rock Polish is more viable than Dragon Dance so y'know.
 
Confused about -spe +1 Ditto, guess this a a recording error and you meant +spe, as as far as I know that set doesn't exist. On the matter of recording errors, M.Chomp's base speed (92) isn't written on the 252 neutral entry.

Neutral +1 Kyu-B is not a benchmark, it never runs non +spe scarf as scarf Kyu's main niche is checking scarf Lando, who it loses to if it doesn't outspeed. Also remove -1 Conk (WTF) and Gorugiest-S while we're at it (at least min Gorgiest, p. sure no one cares about it, it's just clutter). Also remove any TR stuff above M-Hera that can't set TR, they never really abuse TR.

Add standard M-Swamp (the one that creeps M.Bee and M.Scept), min speed Lando-T (sometimes used for slow U-Turns), and 0EV/30IV Lando-T to get the slowest turn in a mirror. Also why is +2 Sharpedo there, but not +2 M.Sharpedo?

Edit: Lack of Emboar. You need max scarf and invested (not sure how much) non scarf.

Wobbuffet, being an uninvested base 33, is a really important benchmark for slow defensive mons. I can't tell you how many ferrothorns I've completely screwed over by locking them into SR.

In fact, being outsped by encore users in general kinda sucks.
Can you elaborate on this? Counter doesn't work when Ferrothorn can't attack you if its locked into SR, and Wobbuffet can't hurt Ferro otherwise, so once you switch out your Wobbuffet for something useful, he switches out too...not sure what this accomplishes. I'd think Gothitelle would be more useful for disposing of Ferrothorn.

Whichever mon you send in gets 100% risk free set up thanks to Encore. If you want to remove Ferro, Goth or Zone are better, but Wobb takes advantage of Ferro, which is far better in some cases.

I think Unburden Hawlucha is probably worth adding, granted it may not be the most common threat:

736 / Hawlucha / 118 / +Speed / 252 / +2

ok. i updated the speed tiers with most of the suggestions posted here. i'll briefly address a few comments below:

Kurona: thanks for giving me the tyrantrum benchmarks. i have implemented all of them into their respective speed tiers. however, your maths for the boosted tyrantrum speeds was a bit off. +spe tyrantrum hits the 530 spe benchmark, while neutral tyrantrum hits 482.

---

s0me1 b0red: -spe +1 ditto refers to untransformed choice scarf ditto, which often runs a relaxed nature. it's niche, but i added it in there for completion's sake. fixed the mega garchomp recording error.

i removed neutral scarf cube and a few trick room benchmarks i felt were irrelevant.

i added the standard swift swim swampert (152 speed evs) and removed 252 speed swampert.

not trying to be mean here, but how often do you wait for sharpedo to get two speed boosts before you mega evolve it? i'm asking this because i'm uncertain about the relevance of +2 mega sharpedo. some answers here would be really helpful.

i have added 252 spe jolly emboar (w/out choice scarf) to the list. however, i am not adding scarf emboar for now because it's not relevant at all in ou. if you want it added to this list, please send me high-ladder / tournament replays where scarf emboar does work.

thanks for the comments.

---

WebBowser: thanks for informing me about wobb's importance. i have implemented the 0 spe wobb benchmark.

---

-Clone-, boxofkangaroos: i added the hawlucha benchmarks (even though literally nothing relevant to ou at +2 beats them), but i have modified the speed evs a bit to match the standard evs in the hawlucha analysis.

---

that being said, please keep submitting comments about these speed tiers. i'd like more eyes to scan this form and point out errors / benchmarks i should add.

Forgot M.Sharp lost speed boost when I typed that, was tired. +2 M.Sharp is irrelevant. I've never actually used scarf Emboar, but heard it was one of it's best sets. Maybe I was wrong.

As a user of Mega Sharpedo, I honestly disagree. +2 is the ideal state for Mega Shark in OU. I always try to reach +2 in order to outspeed some game-changing threats. Just my opinion though. :)

How do you get to +2 tho? You need to spend on turn without Protect; on which your power is mediocre and you are extremely frail.

Either send it in on a predicted switch, or attack a weakened opponent with Waterfall or Crunch. It may not be possible in every game, but it is useful when possible.

I'd think Gothitelle would be more useful for disposing of Ferrothorn.
May I point out that encore gives the user a free switch and the potential chance to set up?
 
Can we put +1 Tyrantrum Speeds (252 EVs, 0 EVs)? Dragon Dance is also quite a viable set in OU, and I think that should also be listed here.

So obviously you don't want to just add everything that speed creeps other stuff or there would be too much clutter. However I do notice that Volcarona isn't on this list at all, and the main set (to my knowledge) atm does speed creep max speed Lando-T to outspeed the scarf variants. I'll leave the benchmarks here and if you want to add them that's cool.

310 / Volcarona / 100 / +Spe / 184 / 0
465 / Volcarona / 100 / +Spe / 184 / +1 (same as Scarf Kyurem-B)

BTW this thread is really awesome. Speed tier reference is super useful.

Couple things:

Missing +2 Speed Landorus-I o-o (Rock Polish)

602 / Landorus / 101 / Neutral / 252 / +2

Scarf lando-t generally runs max speed nowadays due to the fact that mega zard x runs jolly therefore it doesnt need to be ev'd to outspeed adamant zard x.

464 / Landorus-Therian / 91 / +Spe / 252 / +1

Is Agility Diggersby a thing? I dont think having +2 diggs is worth a mention.
edit: I guess it cant hurt to have it lol

The most common and effective charizard X spread is running 104 HP / 220 Atk / 184 Spe with a Jolly nature (specifically to outspeed scarf lando-t), so I'd consider changing the zard x entry to this:

465 / Mega Charizard X / 100 / +Spe / 184 / +1

Might try and add some more stuff later.

I'd keep Agility Diggersby on there. Granted it's not some common occurrence but you're gonna feel stupid when you do catch this thing for w/e reason it may be, Agility / 3 attacks, double dance, w/e really and not have the resource right there to use.
