Speedsters are highly mobile Pokemon that excels at dealing quick attacks and scoring points. They take advantage of their high movement speed to maneuver around the battle arena and give chase to fleeing enemies.
The Speedster role is for players who want to incorporate the assassin-like playstyle of striking down on unsuspecting opponents and scoring goals out of nowhere. They are also for players that like to take on independent roles that have a relatively different approach in playing the game.

|Absol||Absol can quickly jump between specific areas and can deal massive damage out of nowhere.|
Talonflame is an expert at pressuring the opponent's HP while being hard to target. Moves like Acrobatics makes it untargetable for a short amount of time, then dealing damage to everyone in the area. Also, Flame Charge can help you get out of a tight spot or close the distance from your opponent while dealing damage along the way.
Absol can deal high amounts of damage due to its high critical rate. Feint ignores the opponent's defense and shield making it deadly for taking out both wild Pokemon and opponents. You can easily set up quick ambush using Pursuit that deals bonus damage when enemies get hit from behind.
Speedsters are recommended to take control of the jungle area of the arena, as they can navigate around the large space effectively. Here, they can freely farm for experience while accumulating Aeos Energy without the need to contest with opponents located at the lanes. This will also allow you to keep the center area in check and reveal enemy locations when they go through the jungle.
Speedsters have the highest Mobility rating of all the available roles in the game. Because of this, they can transition between areas faster and attack enemies in quick succession.
Speedsters can be your top scorer in the team. They can quickly pick up scattered Aeos Energy in the arena and can easily go in and out of enemy goals for quick scoring.
Speedsters have low HP, and aren't meant for 1-on-1 fights. They usually have to rely on their movement speed to avoid getting caught out of position.
Speedsters can swoop down from the jungle area and provide extra offense when their teammates are pushing or taking down opponents in the lanes. You can initiate ganks at the lanes for an ambushing unsuspecting enemies for easy knockdowns, as well as establishing lane dominance for an aggressive push. Speedsters can also provide additional offense to help defeat boss Pokemon.
It is important to have a general idea on where your enemies are located at any given time. Knowing this means you can avoid unnecessary confrontations, and strategically intercept enemy movement. So, always be vigilant in spotting enemies while tagging them so you can warn your teammates and stop prevent ganking.
Speedsters have certain moves in their kit that can make them teleport to a targeted location instantaneously. These can be used for a tactical retreat when you are caught in a bad situation or closing the distance between you and the opponent to deal damage.
