    Default Inner Focus VS Steadfast

    Ability polls? Great idea!

    First, we have Inner Focus, which prevents the Pokemon from flinching. then, we have Steadfast, which raises Speed by one stage if the Pokemon flinches.

    Which do you like?

    I choose Steadfast. I'd much rather benefit from a flinch in order to attempt a sweep.

    Inner focus is better, especially when dealing with a yanmega, who already has speed boost as an ability.

    To be honest, I feel Steadfast is more useful, even though both need the Pokemon to make the move to take effect. However, I think Inner Focus is favoured, because being able to move from Fake Out is a plus, so Alakazam and Crobat likes that (though they are already fast).

    Steadfast is more generally useful since the user won't flinch again if he's faster. Inner Focus is only more useful against foes who has Speed Boost or know Fake Out.

    If you're being a paraflinched by a Togekiss, Inner Focus is the way to go. What worth is all the speed if you won't be able to attack anyway?

    I believe Steadfast is better to use, as an increase in speed will greatly liken the chances of a sweep.

    I think inner focus is better becoz if u are about 2 land an attack that will make the opposing pokemon faint, u will prevail
