When to Use X Speed

Pursuing Your Enemies

Use X Speed if you need the extra movement speed to pursue fleeing opponents or stick close to slippery targets like Zeraora or Greninja. The immunity to slows you get from using the item is also a nice bonus and gives your opponents less options to shake you off their tails.

Escaping From Your Enemies

On the flip side, if you find yourself in a tight spot or if you're being pursued by multiple opponents, X Speed gives you the boost you need to outrun your opponents and head to safety. The slow immunity you get also helps reduce the enemies' odds of catching up to you.

Traveling Long Distances

Use X Speed when traveling long distances, such as moving from the central route to the upper and lower routes. In particular, Pokemon on the central route want to rush to the upper and lower routes as soon as possible to support allies, so it is recommended to actively use them when it is available.

Scoring Goals

X Speed can also be used when moving quickly towards a goal zone, especially if you take Rotom or Zaptos and use it when the goal is broken. You can quickly move to the goal area and score points before being disturbed by the opponent.

Enemy Lane Flux Immunity

When you are caught inside enemy lane flux zones, you get slowed drastically. Using X Speed grants you immunity to the movement slow and lets you move at normal speed. Use this when you're chasing fleeing opponents in their own flux zones, or when you want to steal Yellow Berries behind enemy goal zones.

X Speed Effect Test

Distance Test

Defender Speedster
With Float Stone Without Float Stone

The test was done by comparing the distance traveled from the upper grass of the central area to the other end using Speedster (Gengar) and Defender (Slowbro). The test also considered the effect of Float Stone to see if it persists.

As a result of the X Speed test, it is confirmed that the distance traveled between the different Pokemon role is the same. Furthermore, the effect of Float Stone stat persists even when using X Speed.
