How can I REALLY decrease a Pokemon's speed stat?

0 votes

I'm trying to stop the growth or even decrease the speed stat of my golett so its move gyro ball will be super powerful, and when it's gollurk it will be awesome.

So far I've given it a power band and it has a nature that decreases speed. Is there anything else I can do?

Well these are some things that help you have a Pokémon with it's minimum Speed Stat, or will decrease it's Speed Stat:

Have 0 IV's in Speed.
Don't invest any EV's in Speed.
Have a Speed decreasing Nature (Brave, Relaxed, Quiet or Sassy).
Give it an item that reduces Speed such as a Power Item or an Iron Ball etc.
Let the opponent set up Sticky Web (not really advised unless your using Trick Room).

Hope I helped :)

lagging tail as an item would be good too
A Lagging Tail doesn't decrease your Speed it just makes you go last :P
i didnt know that i though it decreased speed a lot
No it just makes you go last despite what it's Pokédex entries say: http://www.serebii.net/itemdex/laggingtail.shtml
The Iron Ball on the other hand decreases your Speed by 50%: http://serebii.net/itemdex/ironball.shtml
