IconPKMBuy SV Guide - What’s the fastest Pokémon in Scarlet and Violet?

There are several stats that make up the basic stats of a Pokémon. A Pokémon's most important stats may change depending on who you ask. Some players might say it's HP/Defense if they like their Pokémon to be tanky, while aggressive players might say Attack/Sp. The attack is the most important. While all stats are important to any Pokémon makeup, it's generally accepted that Speed is always near the top of the list.

Since speed is so important, knowing which Pokémon are the fastest in Scarlet and Violet will be a huge help if you want to be the first to move in every battle.

Fastest Pokémon in Scarlet and Violet
While some players may think that the newer Pokémon are the fastest, that's not the case. Instead, the fastest Pokémon of Scarlet and Violet have been around since the first generation. With a base speed of 150, Electrode is the fastest Pokémon by a wide margin. The next closest Pokémon with a speed stat of Electrode is Dragapult, which has a speed stat of 142.

Electrode, the evolved form of Voltorb, has been the fastest Pokémon since the beginning, and that doesn't look like that's going to change anytime soon. In nine generations, no other Pokémon has surpassed Electrode on the speed chart. Unfortunately for large Poké Ball Pokémon, Electrode really only has its speed - compared to the other Electric types in Scarlet and Violet, it doesn't do anything else.

If you're looking for other fast Pokémon with more life than Electrode, here are the next fastest Pokémon in Scarlet and Violet:

Iron Bundle
Flutter Mane

There are a few new additions to this list, including Iron Bundle, Flutter Mane, Kilowattrel, and Chien-Pao. If you want to build a team of fast Paldean Pokémon, these will be your first choice. However, if you want pure speed, you might want to grab an Electrode. If you want Legendary Pokemon, instead of catching it yourself, you can buy shiny Pokemon Scarlet and Violet at PKMBuy.
