Extreme Speed (Japanese: しんそく Swiftness), formatted as ExtremeSpeed prior to Pokémon X and Y, is a damage-dealing Normal-type move introduced in Generation II. Prior to Generation III, it was the signature move of Arcanine. It can be seen as a more powerful version of Quick Attack.

Effect

Generations II to IV

ExtremeSpeed inflicts damage and is an increased priority move. If the target does not use an increased priority move during the round that it is used, ExtremeSpeed will go first regardless of the user's or target's speed. If the target also uses a move with an increased priority of +1 during the same round that the user uses ExtremeSpeed, the attack order of the users will be determined normally. If the user is put to sleep or frozen during the round that ExtremeSpeed is (or is attempted to be) used, ExtremeSpeed's increased speed priority will not be reset. Subsequently, it will only be reset on the turn after the user wakes up or is defrosted, or if the user switches out.

Generation V

ExtremeSpeed now has +2 priority.
