  1. Speed stats on wild pokemons

    According to my calculations, with your current speed, you have a 63% of successfully escaping on your first try. To have a 100% to escape, you would need a speed stat of 72. These percentages and values were made assuming PokeMMO uses this formula to calculate escape chances. Edit: To clarify: A=Your Pokemon's speed, B=the wild pokemon's speed, and C is a multiplier for how many attempts you've made at escaping (first attempt = 1, second attempt = 2, and so on). If the F value is greater than 255, then you will always succeed at escaping.
  2. In addition to this, volt switch can be blocked by ground types or volt absorb pokemon, and u-turn can be punished by rough skin/rocky helmet pokemon, and both can be scouted by protect, which can be advantageous in certain scenarios.
  3. Proposed Temporary Update Tiers Discussion

    Not really that great, unless you want to be able to revenge kill other excadrills in sand (which would mean you would also have to be sand rush and not mold breaker). Excadrill's utility comes from being able to swords dance and that set doesn't really accomplish it. Locking yourself into rapid spin is generally a bad idea
  4. The Pokemon Showdown Thread

    Lmao " Mazar would also be punished under regular circumstances, but the TD team does not condone the beating of dead horses."

    gotta keep a textpad/pastebin of all the importables. I made that mistake before

    Depends what the people want. People might prefer having this instead of PSL in the upcoming future. I'm also unsure of the timeline of the update at all. I think I'm allowed to disclose that there will be a UU and NU tier on launch of the update (well you/riga know this obviously, but not the rest of people) so in theory, we could have PSL as soon as the update hits (or at least in a few weeks, instead of waiting months for usage based tier formation), but the tiers will most likely be volatile and there will be a lot of changes that would probably happen to tiers, so there are a few options for a competitive league. 1. Wait until tiers stabilize. This is the "safest" option but this also takes a while and no one wants to wait that long. 2. Wade through the shit of the update and the tiers, and have OU, UU, and NU, along with a showdown tier or two+Doubles, and force players to adapt and grind new comps as tier changes happen. 3. Limit the amount of competitive preparation players need by only having OU as a tier+showdown tiers to pad out the rest of the slots. This would be similar to what SPL did this season, as gen 7 hit pretty much right before SPL was starting, so it was better to have an extra OU tier+ubers, instead of waiting for UU/RU to fully form. Obviously relying on showdown tiers to fill up the tier slots is not ideal as it seems every season has proven that the players willing to be dedicated to a showdown tier is almost always a single digit number.

    And these fools thought they would make good PSL hosts
  8. [PSL 8] Awards

    One final award that I forgot about and took a while to get votes from the managers. Worst Player of PSL. The prize for this award was a shiny beedrill and the existence of this award was not known until after the regular season, just so there were no players throwing to get a few more losses if their matches didn't matter. I handpicked the not-finest players of PSL this season, and had two candidates for the managers to vote on. Those two people were Tranzmaster and BlueBreath. Tranzmaster had an impressive 0-5 record in OU this season, eeking out one more loss than his fellow team mate, Kevola. BlueBreath had a slightly better record, at 1-5, but he also came as the top draft pick for the Buzzwoles, which puts higher expectations than if it was some random who went for 2-10k credits. I gave the managers the option to vote for either of these individuals, and in a 5-2 vote, they decided BlueBreath shall be crowned worst player of PSL8. (Keith died after PSL ended again, so I didn't get a vote from him). Congratulations to @xXBlu3BreathXx on "winning" this award.

  11. Game of Thrones Discussion Thread. [SPOILERS]

    I love how many scenes are cut off right before he does something horrible
  12. Smeargle definitely should have won, quite innovative, unlike camerupt which has been around since mid 2015 (iirc some people used it in OU some then to check gengar, while also beating electric types). VVVV trashbois are bad at voting
  13. [PSL 8] Awards

    When did I ever do that lmao? I don't mind if people want to criticize some of the actions I take, but don't try to make up blatant lies that never happened. I had the opportunity I suppose, but I don't know why I would ever try to do it, as a) I don't care about the money and b) if anything, managers would probably vote for enchanteur if I tried to persuade them because that's a real scum move. As for the dnites, I think it is weird to quantify something like that, as the first pick is obviously going to have a bigger role in the team than other players (typically anyways). Most of the draft pick players played a big role in getting wins or helping other team mates get wins.
