Meta Battle Subway PokeBase - Pokemon Q&A

Is this situation natural?

0 votes

Earlier while I was trying to catch an Ursaring in Pokemon Y I was using a level 88 Hydreigon with a speed stat of 231. When I fought it the Ursaring was level 50 and it didn't use any priority moves and I also didn't inflict any status effects to it. It still moved before my Hydreigon. is this natural?

What were the moves your Hydreigon and the wild Ursaring were using?

Okay well it is possible if any of these were the circumstances:

Your Hydreigon was Paralysed. Being Paralysed reduces your Speed Stat by 50%.

You were against a Ursaring with Quick Feet. If the Ursaring was Burned, Paralysed or Poisoned Quick Feet will Boost it's Speed Stat by 50%.

Ursaring could have used Scary Face on your Hydreigon. Ursaring can learn Scary Face at Level 38 in Pokémon X and Y. Scary Face reduces your Speed Stat by two stages. Since Ursaring can only be caught at either Level 50 or Level 52 in Pokémon X and Y at Route 21. It only learns two other Moves between Level 38 and Level 50/ 52 so if you catch a Ursaring in Pokémon X and Y they will always have Scary Face.

Hope I helped :)

It maybe had a status problem? If it had a status problem, its ability quick feet may have boosted its speed. It could have used a priority move too. Other than that, it may just have been a glitch.

If one of your Pokemon either paralyzed/poisoned/burned the Ursaring, its speed will rise by 50% due to Quick Feet. it might have outsped your Hydreigon because of that.
