i used icywind on a kyogre and it still went before my lugia with a speed of 230 on the next turn... is this possible?

i thought icywind reduced speed the same way other stats are reduced
66%
50%
40%
33%
28%
25%

a kyogres max speed is 306.. 2/3 of that is 204, far slower than my lugia...

the kyogre may have also gone before my kyogre with a speed of 263 as well although mine may have been paralyzed... does paralysis reduce speed as well?

It might have had Quick Claw.

Hmm... weird. Was Lugia paralyzed or affected by any stat moves at the time? If not, it looks like Kyogre's a lucky bastard.

Only with safeguard.

i used icy wind on the first move... after both his pokemon used damaging moves... there would not have been an opportunity to put up any barrier or anything that could negate the icy wind effect

the only possible thing i have come up with is the amazingly lucky quick claw

No offense but you made a thread for this? It attacked first twice, big deal

quick claw only has a 10% chance of working correct?
