I'd like to know which Pokemon in the Black and White meta-game will be able to outspeed both:

  • Haxorus # Choice Scarf with
    252 Speed EVs
    Adamant nature
    (I do not know my Haxorus' IVs yet, so assume the IVs in Speed are 2)

  • Haxirys # Choice Band with
    252 Speed EVs
    Adamant nature

I am no good with the Generation V meta-game yet so I don't know what threats there are out there and what is popular. So if anybody could provide any popular Pokemon used in the meta-game that is able to outspeed both Haxorus (I don't even know how to calc!), it would be much appreciated.

Ok for the choice scarf, Adamant nature, 252 EVs in Speed, and 2 IVs in Speed he would have 405.7 Speed. So he has just enough speed to outspeed Jolteon but is still outspeed by Accelgor/Electrode. That is pretty good. Though neither of those will be found in OU(at least not often), Scarf-Hydregion will still outspeed. The secondd one is outsped by most sweepers so I recommend the choice scarf. Personally I usually go Jolly with Dragon-dance, that way he can speed up even more and boost his Attack to even higher levels, but if you do not want to run D-dance go with the Choice-scarf.

Garchomp is Uber and Jolteon is OU.
I said Accelgor and Electrode would not be found in OU. And sorry I keep forgetting about Garchomp because I still think he does not belong in Uber.
I see dat now.
I was afraid a Scarfed Hydreigon would pop up.
And yes I wanted it to be Scarfed because I don't want to use Dragon Dance in this set, but this was exactly what I was looking for, thanks Speed freak!
No problem 4x Sam. :)
