Speedsters aim to get a lot of EXP early game in order to get their move upgrades fast, and they are crucial for turning the tides of the game later on.
An effective jungler knows when and where Wild Pokemon spawns in the map so you can farm EXP effectively. Securing jungle camps makes you level up much faster than your teammates, and clearing wild pokemon spawns on the enemy's side removes their capability to farm effectively.
Speedsters provide extra offense when their teammates are pushing or taking down opponents in the lanes. You may initiate ganks and ambush unsuspecting enemies for easy takedowns, as well as establishing lane dominance for an aggressive push.
Speedsters are capable of providing additional offense to help defeat boss Pokemon when they spawn. While they may complete objectives without aid, it is still recommended to rally your teammates towards securing objectives in order to get a higher chance of success.

Speedsters are very good at utilizing hit-and-run tactics due to their high mobility and damage. In a team fight, the ideal scenario is to swoop in, quickly burst down a squishy opponent, and get out. Once your move cooldowns have been refreshed, you can repeat the process again on another target. This tactic ensures that you don't die too quickly by staying in a fight for too long.
Speedsters are fast enough to go in and out of goal zones and easily score points. Zeraora can use its Volt Switch to dive towards a goal zone and quickly snap back just before an opponent comes. Moreover, Talonflame can get around obstacles with Fly and land directly on top of a goal zone to score. Though these moves are mainly used for offense, they give an extra layer of evasion which can also be used for disengaging.
Using the Speedster's arsenal Dash moves, you can easily get out of the way and evade incoming attacks from opponents, provided they are not Sure-Hit moves. This is especially effective if you are fighting the enemy Speedster who also has high mobility.

|Gengar is an expert at pressuring enemies and pushing lanes while being hard to pin down. Use Dream Eater to disable your enemies, then follow up with Shadow Ball attacks in order to get the kill. Also, its Unite Move Phantom Ambush makes you invulnerable for a brief moment and helps you get out of a tight spot, or take advantage of the extra movement speed and hunt down your targets then surprise them with burst damage!|
Speedsters are recommended to take control of the jungle area of the arena, as they can navigate around the large space quickly and 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 access to a wide array of Dash moves which makes them capable of transitioning between areas faster and employing hit-and-run tactics on opposing Pokemon. This gives them the highest Mobility rating of all the available roles in the game.

Speedsters are capable of dealing high amounts of damage in a short amount of time, making them effective as the team's assassin. You can depend on them for taking down sturdy Pokemon like Defenders or All-Rounders and securing objectives for the benefit of the team.
Speedsters have low HP, and aren't typically meant for sustained fights or staying in the frontline. They usually have to dive in, score a takedown, and get out quickly before the enemy manages to target them.
Speedsters depend on a smooth early game to get to their move upgrades. Lanes do not provide that much EXP compared to the jungle, making it difficult for Speedsters to win early brawls against opponents. Getting controlled by the enemy may stretch the level gap enough to hinder the Speedster from getting the advantage it needs later in the game.
Outside their Dash and Attack moves, there isn't room for Speedsters to have any moves that can support their team in any other way. Moreover, Speedsters are only effective against single targets, making team fights hard to manage.
Speedsters are highly mobile Pokemon that excel at dealing quick attacks and scoring points. They take advantage of their high mobility to maneuver around the battle arena and flank opponents.
The Speedster role is for players who want to incorporate the assassin-like playstyle of striking down unsuspecting opponents and scoring goals out of nowhere. They are also good for the patient or opportunistic players that like to take advantage of mistakes or openings made by the enemy team.
