Hi. I just lost a battle to a Nidoking who was able to outspeed all of my Pokemon, even my Mienshao, who was jolly and had both ev's and iv's in speed. I know the Nidoking wasn't scarfed cuz it used different moves without having to switch. There was no baton pass or paralysis involved, only a sticky Web. Was that really enough for it to outspeed me? It was shiny, as was all of my opponent's Pokemon, so I was wondering if it might have been hacked?
Mienshao's max Speed stat while Jolly is 172.
Nidoking's max Speed stat without a boosting nature is 137.
Now, assuming there was Sticky Web in effect, and it affected your Mienshao, her Speed drops to 86. Even a neutral-natured Nidoking has enough speed to outspend a -1 Mienshao.
Here's the simple math:
172 x 0.5 = 86
