I.e.
Deoxys speed form becoming paralyzed v.s. ferrothorn. Who will move first? And who will move first if Deoxys uses extreme speed?

Answering because the previous answer was incorrect.

Additionally, its Speed is reduced to 25% of its previous value (except for Pokémon with the Quick Feet Ability, where this condition raises the Speed by 50%).

It's only 25%. Deoxys-S has a max Speed of 504. Let us see what it is after:

504 / 4 = 126.

If Ferrothorn was running 204 Spd EVs with a neutral nature, nature, or 160 Spd EVs with a +Spd nature, Ferrothorn would outspeed a paralyzed Max Speed Deoxys-S.

If Deoxys-S used ExtremeSpeed, it would go first, as it is a priority move.
