Self explanatory, I hope. I heard it as a rumour somewhere before, and I noticed that after Static takes effect in Pokemon Y that my Pikachu suddenly outspeeds.

If yes, by how much, and what gen was this implemented?

This is indeed true. Paralysis lowering Speed has been around since Generation I, but the amount it decreased was reduced in Generation VII.

Additionally, its Speed is reduced to 50% of its previous value (25% prior to Generation VII).


Hope I helped!

Isn’t it 75% prior to gen VII? Also, it may be worth noting that baton passing a paralysed Pokémon in gen II will leave the Pokémon that is sent in paralysed, but the speed reduction doesn’t take place until a move that directly affects the speed is used.
It was reduced by 75%, or to 25% of its total speed like the answer says.
