Among the three speed boosters, blaziken, ninjask, scolipede
I want to use sword dance, with like protect and perhaps subsitute.
Then baton pass to a physical sweeper but which is the best to use.
Ninjask is fastest so it can outspeed thus using sub more efficiently and also has access to double team
Blaziken is better to feign as a physical attacker then shock the opponent and has access to moves like focus energy
Scolipede has access to iron def to extra buff so which one is better

Best answer

Ninjask is probably the best option

Pros

  • Access to hone claws incase you're using a mon with low accuracy moves

  • excellent speed that can outspeed most if not all scarfers after a speed boost.

Ninjask @ Focus Sash
Ability: Speed Boost
EVs: 252 HP / 252 Spe
Jolly Nature
IVs: 0 Atk
- Baton Pass
- Swords Dance / Hone claws
- Double Team
- Protect

Cons

  • Using Double team is a bit Risky.

Scolipede is your second best option

Pros

  • Likes you said, Access to iron Defense

Scolipede @ Leftovers (focus sash is you don't use substitute)
Ability: Speed Boost
EVs: 252 HP / 4 Def / 252 Spe
Jolly Nature
IVs: 0 Atk
- Iron Defense / Substitute
- Swords Dance
- Double Team
- Baton Pass

  • No recovery which makes iron defense unreliable

Using Double team is a bit Risky.

Blaziken is probably your worst option.

Pros

  • Access to hone claws, Though Ninjask utilises it way better so this might not count as a pro.

  • Can actually attack if hou choose to use high jump kick

  • Access to bulk up.

Blaziken
Ability: Blaze @ Leftovers (Focus Sash if you use High Jump Kick)
EVs: 252 Atk or HP / 252 Spe
Jolly Nature
- Swords Dance / Hone claws / Bulk up
- Protect
- Double Team
- High Jump Kick / Substitute

Cons

  • Can't outspeed Shadow rider Calyrex, Zacian, Scarf kyogre and regieleki even with full speed investment and speed boost.

  • Has better sets that are way more reliable.

Using Double team is a bit Risky.
