Okay, I have gone on Pokemon Battle Revolution and had something happen several times that has me thinking. My Slaking has been EV trained with a nature that increases atk and decreases sp. atk, with a personality that increases speed. I EV trained his atk and speed to the max. Yet for some reason everytime i go against Kyogre, it always gets the first turn. What is going on? I have checked it out and most of the time Slaking should be faster. Is there a glitch or something in PBR or do personalities have that little of effect?

Personalitys are really just IVs so They don't have much effect

If you did 31 IVs and 252 EVs for speed @ lvl 100 then your speed would be 299
A kyorge could Out speed you If...
...It Had Max EVs and Timid Nature (which is common) and at least 26 IVs It would react a speed of 300 held the Item Choice Scarf (which is also common) It would only need a speed of 230 to out run you which would most likely mean a modest nature with Max EVd Speed

What might have you confused is the personality; personalities don't increase any stats, they just tell you which IV is highest. Also, like /vXv\ said, alot of people use Scarves on their Kyogres. Obviously, something you can do is to give it a scarf of its own, because if Kyogre can outspeed you, it can do some serious damage with Water Spout.
