I'm assuming speed raising/lowering is like other stats, with something like
(speed 1)(speed modifier 1) <> (speed 2)(speed modifier 2)
Where the speed is the speed of the pokemon and the modifier is on the scale of
1/4, 1/3, 1/2, 1, 2, 3, 4.
If this is true, would paralysis cut a pokemon's speed modifier down to 1/2? Or does speed work another way...

My not insignifigant testing showed that speed is quartered on a paralyzed monster (using sharked monsters with speeds of 2,3, etc., versus wild monsters with speeds like 10, etc. [wild monsters captured to ascertain exact speed]).

I'm not sure if this sticks when you switch (I think it does, you can check and report back if you want).

Any dissenting opinions? If so, I'll do a serious link trial and stuff...

Hope this helps,

Alright, I'm fixing to link up my two GB's and run some tests on PAR. (This will be my first time doing PkMn research...yes i'm a Rookie to PkMn research, but not Training)

Wish me luck!

Cfalcon, I have tried this:
I went into a battle in the Cerulean Cave. I paralyzed an Arbok with my Slowbro. I then switched to a level 100 Beedrill that knew String Shot. I used String Shot six times...

this rules out that the "PAR" status effect is equal to six String Shots, right?

Wow it's been so long since I posted, I've been really busy. Hopefully I will be less busy soon.

cfalcon I myself tested Paralysis with Gameshark codes, but I found that it reduced speed to 1/2 of it's initial value, not 1/4. But I didn't test that carefully, and it was long ago.

Someone earlier posted that if you switch out your Paralyzed pokemon and switch him back, he will still have Paralysis but will no longer suffer from the Speed decrease. Is this true?

Would switching a pokemon out also remove the 1/2 Attack decrease from Burn?

I don't think so. I haven't played in a while, but as I recall, my Toby led off every match against a paralyed foe, if my memory's correct

Wintermute just cracked this one recently and we'll have a page up about it soon (well, hopefully).

The short answer is that it quarters the victim's Speed.
