    Other stats do matter as well, and a pokemon can be good without having speed, but speed is still the most important stat for offensive pokemon.

    When defensive pokemon fight, who does the most damage to the other is what matters, but when offensive pokemon fight...all that matters is who goes first.

    Actually, what matters is who destroys the other. If the fast Pokemon hits the slower Pokemon, but the slower Pokemon survives and kills the other in one shot, would you STILL be saying that?


    I must say, I am 110% against this action, I mean, quoting Wikipedia, '' A world of free knowledge will be lost ''. I say screw SOPA and PIPA, and all who agrees with me, sig this! We all detest the bill and will fight for the freedom of the Internet!

    You now have a slow Pokemon that can be easily killed by something else. Though it may have been fast, it is now dead-weight. Everyone has their own preferences and opinions; there is no point impressing them upon others.

    This is actually one of the reasons I like Azumarill; it is bulky, powerful, and has priority.

    The reason why speed is important in Competitive Play is because it gives the Pokemon the opportunity to go first in battle.

    Actually what matters is how the Evs are distributed to a Pokemon.
    Not everything is going to be focus on speed. You have a total of 508 Evs to spread around on a Pokemon with 252 Evs being maxed out for a single stat.
    So its really up to you on how you distribute your Evs, your Pokemon could be bulky, offensive, or etc.
    Whatever you want it to be. This also applies to your first post as well.
