Pokémon Emerald Forum  /  Speed drop on Drake?
  kurddtkurddt

Lost 2 minutes on my PB the other day due to getting speed dropped on Drake. Kept getting paralyzed/damaged by dragonbreath and wasting lots of turns healing. Any advice on how to play this fight when you get turn 1 rock tomb speed dropped?

You should have a spare x speed at that point to throw in (buy 4 at Falabor, use 1 at Rival 3, TnL and True Double, leaving 1 spare) which counteracts the fall. Double RT speed drop is a killer though apparently (I'm paraphrasing what Shiru told me here because I also didn't know).

Makes sense, I x speed on archie though not true double, just a guard spec/x special there? Think you outspeed regardless there unless somehow scary face hits after your guard spec? Hopefully next time I wont get so unlucky that I get RT twice haha.

Late as hell reply but yeah that X speed should be Archie not True Double.
