How to make a Pokemon's speed go higher than 1809 ??

0 votes

Hello !

I've lately read a page: http://www.smogon.com/bw/moves/trick_room

And it states the following:

Any Pokemon with over 1809 Speed will be unaffected by Trick Room.

How can a Pokemon bypass Trick Room, so how can a Pokemon's speed goes over 1809 ?
It is kinda impossible, I'm pretty sure ! Is it a troll by Game Freak or can it really be reached ? And why 1809 ?

Thank you for an answer.

12096 is the max possible speed.
Deoxys-s + 252 Speed EVs + Boosting Nature + Tailwind + Choice Scarf + full speed boosts (+6) + Skill Swapped Sand Rush with Sandstorm in effect = 12096 Max Speed.

This outstrips the speed of 1809 yet when I tested this vs Jojo (No tailwind but still over 1809), Deoxys was still affected by TR.

Ooo la la ! But wait ... "This outstrips the speed of 1809 yet when I tested this vs Jojo (No tailwind but still over 1809), Deoxys was still affected by TR."

This means Deoxys at full speed bypassing 1809 speed was still affected by Trick Room ! 0_o !

Thank you ;)
But, we could assume it had been given a speed enhancing Nature, such as Sand Rush via Skill Swap. If we then assume Sandstorm would be up, what would the max Speed be then?
lemme check Flaf :P
