Each pet has a stat pool. The size of this pool is based on two characteristics: Pet level and pet rarity. All pets that share the same level and rarity share the same stat pool.
Its from this pool that a pet's abilities are derived. The stat pool may be allocatted differently among different pets: You may encounter pets that favor speed over health, or variants of that same type of pet with a more even distribution of thier stat pool, that favor no one stat above the other. But as long as the pets share the same level and rarity, there is no difference in the size of the pool their abilities are derived from. From the perspective you are considering, no pet is better than any other pet of the same rarity and level.

There's nothing to wonder about in this case. The pet with an increased Strength has a decreased speed. It's just that at the level you viewed them, the fractional boost to Strength was enough to boost the score, while the fractional decrease to Speed was not enough to drop that score. If you train all four pets to level cap, things should even out.

Here's how I'm invisioning your pool concept (please correct me where I'm wrong)
(numbers are arbirtary, for example only)
Level 1 - 180 points (pool)
The game generates X HPs. (say 150)
The game generates X attack (16)
The game generates X speed (14)
Total = 180
Level 2 - 200 points
Level 3 - 220 points
Is this close, or am I waaaaay off base?

so it's rounding the 2 .5's down but rounding the .9 up?
That is correct. To have an increased score in one area, a pet loses points in one or both of its other stats.
