How does switching out at the same time work?

6 votes

Let's say I'm battling a trainer with Scarfchomp (I have a Shuckle) and we both switch out. Who would switch out first? Does switching out have anything to do with Speed?
Like since Garchomp is faster that Shuckle, would Garchomp switch first since it's faster?

Does it really matter?
Switching out doesnt affect the battle.  But I think players always take priority over random trainers.
I'm just curious.
That doesn't answer my question...
Shall I turn this into comment, Mew?
My opinion doesn't matter, but I think it should be. I'm the one who downvoted that old answer, BTW.
I just did it myself
This is for countering Steel Types. So I can switch into Magnet Pull Probopass/Magnezone.
For TKL and Darmanidude: Why down vote it? Down votes are for posts that can't be read. Can you read this?
What is a scarfchomp?
I didn't downvote!
A scarfchomp is a garchomp with a choice scarf
Wrong and stupid ideas? I'm not exactly sure what that means. If something is wrong, flag it. If something is stupid, it probably breaks the rules. Flag it.

The faster Pokemon would switch out first. So, Scarfchomp would switch out first, then your Shuckle. This also applies to the start of the battle. If at the start of the battle I sent out a ScarfTar and my foe sent out Politoed, then my Sand would set up, and Rain over it. (Just a little lesson.) This is the reason I despise ScarfTar.

In Short

Faster Pokemon switch first.

Source: Extensive experience and failure with ScarfTar.

That means an easy switch to a Ferrothorn. THANKS!
No problem, just don't ever, EVER use ScarfTar!
Lol, I'd like to meet the poor chap that sends a ScarfTar on me, oh wait...
