Speed Boost(JP) is a Pokémon ability introduced in the third generation.


At the end of every turn the ability holder is in battle, its speed increases by one stage. It does not activate if the user was just switched in.

Pokémon Mystery Dungeon series

Originally, this ability provided the Pokémon with this ability to get a boost to their movement speed every 250 turns. In Pokémon Super Mystery Dungeon, this was changed so it increases after the first turn and every 20 turns later but the speed boost wears off after 5 turns.
