# How fast would a luvdisc be if..?

• It is in Rain

• It has a Choice Scarf

• It has 252 Speed EVs

• A nature that boosts speed

Sorry if you didnt understand I meant that all of these conditions apply. So it's like adding them all together. Das what I wanna know.

Can it outspeed a deoxys at max speed (no scarf)

At 252 Evs, 31 IVs and Timid nature, Luvdisc's speed is 322.

With Swift Swim, it will double the speed, so x2 = 644.

With Choice Scarf, x1.5 = 966.

EDIT: disregarding IVs (say speed is 0), it will be

288 (Timid + 252 EVs)

x 2 = 576

x1.5 = 864

Conclusion: Dexoys can eat its heart out.

966

It would outspeed non scarfed, max speed Deoxys.

Marzipan has it wrong, not me...
he has the same answer as you =-= he showed his work
How did I get it wrong? We both arrived at 966. :x Though, my maths is rubbish, but my calculation process made sense to me?
Oh I was looking at the 0 IVs one. And you didn't say "Show your work", you just asked what it's speed would be if it was under those conditions, and if it could outpace Deoxys.
Oh I only added that later because the question didn't mention IVs, so I thought I'd put that in.
Yes but I didn't see that you were doing it with 0 IVs, and thought you meant that with full IVs.
