The '''Speed stat''' (Japanese: '''{{j|{{tt|素早さ能力|すばやさのうりょく}}}}''' ''speed ability'') determines the order of Pokémon that can act in battle. Pokémon with higher Speed at the start of any turn will generally make a [[move]] before ones with lower Speed; in the case that two Pokémon have the same Speed, one of them will randomly go first. An in-battle change to a Pokémon's Speed stat willoriginally did not start affecting turn order until the following turn; however, sincein Generation VII, if [[Mega Evolution]] isor [[Ultra Burst]] caused changes to the base speed stat or to an exception[[Ability]] that affected speed or priority, those changes took effect immediately for the upcoming turn. In Generation VIII, all speed changes take effect immediately; after every individual move, the fastest remaining Pokémon that hasn't yet made its move that turn is dynamically recalculated, to be able to thismove rulenext.
