What are the official catch rates for PokeMMO? Huge problem with the game


Recommended Posts

it's just absolutely ridiculous and absurd how a standard pokéball will fail more times than it will succeed at catching a 1hp asleep <20 level pokémon

 

 

now, this is a rant about how the devs really do an awful job at informing the players about basic stuff in this game, the ingame FAQ is useful for the first 5 minutes of playing for the first time ever, yes sure it's a pokemon game after all no? everyone has played and knows the basics + bulbapedia can get you a long way except not really, remember that most of this game's inner workings are heavily modified and there's little to no accessible information, I get it, it's a MMO, sure, but that's no excuse for it to become just a tedious braindead grind with inflated artificial difficulty and unexplained mechanics (like how you have to steal fossils and other items from wild geodudes/gravellers that spawn when you use rock smash, otherwise there's no way to find fossils since the underground will never be implemented and it's literally explained or mentioned nowhere unless you look for it) this is pokémon, not Warframe.

I haven't yet found a thread or page listing the current pokeball catch rates and condition multipliers, all I do find are spam posts unrelated to the thing I'm actually searching for, there's no information about it, I don't know if this game is using Gen 1, 2, 3, 4 or 5 catch rate system.

Reading the official bulbapedia article about catch rates and other game mechanisms is pretty much useless as everything is modified, the closest thing I have found to a proper pokeMMO wiki is this, and it's still lacking heavily

for how long this project has been alive i'm really disappointed at the lack of basic information

That numbers are not public, but I got something from experience

-----

For catch rate 255, pokeball is good enough

For catch rate ~235, pokeball may fail depend on Hp left maybe

For catch rate 190, greatball or pokeball+any status condition

For catch rate 100, greatball+sleep

Ahora, esta es una perorata sobre cómo los desarrolladores realmente hacen un trabajo terrible al informar a los jugadores sobre cosas básicas en este juego, las preguntas frecuentes dentro del juego son útiles para los primeros 5 minutos de juego por primera vez, sí, seguro que es un juego de Pokémon. después de todo no? todo el mundo ha jugado y sabe lo básico + bulbapedia puede ayudarte mucho, excepto que no realmente, recuerda que la mayor parte del funcionamiento interno de este juego está muy modificado y hay poca o ninguna información accesible, lo entiendo, es un MMO, claro, pero eso es no hay excusa para que se convierta en una tediosa rutina de muerte cerebral con una dificultad artificial inflada y una mecánica inexplicable (como la forma en que tienes que robar fósiles y otros elementos de geodudes / gravellers salvajes que se generan cuando usas rock smash, de lo contrario hay '

Todavía no he encontrado un hilo o una página que enumere las tasas actuales de captura de pokebolas y los multiplicadores de condición, todo lo que encuentro son publicaciones de spam no relacionadas con lo que estoy buscando, no hay información al respecto, no sé si este juego utiliza el sistema de tasa de captura Gen 1, 2, 3, 4 o 5.

Leer el artículo oficial de bulbapedia sobre las tasas de captura y otros mecanismos del juego es prácticamente inútil, ya que todo está modificado, lo más parecido que he encontrado a una wiki de pokeMMO adecuada es esto, y todavía le falta mucho

¿Cuánto tiempo ha estado vivo este proyecto? Estoy realmente decepcionado por la falta de información básica.

Maybe as you say the capture rates are absurd, but this is an MMO game (Massively Multiplayer Online) Every day more users enter PokeMMO, therefore the Capture Rates must be high, if not the trade of breeds in the game it would be absurd, greetings.

as I already pointed out, I am aware that this is a MMO, but there's literally 0 reason for the developers to keep numbers and information in secret and away from the players, is just stupid and caters to the ideas and theories that I have heard previously like how "odds are better for particular people" and etc, things just don't add up

these people should be way more embarrassed about threads like this

Obviously it is basic information that the players need, so we could improve many aspects of the farm mode with the poke balls, I do not think they will do a '' terrible job '' if pokemmo is still here, and we are discussing about this, it is because their work going fine, they just missed something like this, that's all.

 

Obviously in the future it is necessary for them to add it, or depending on the citation not, but saying things like that will not give an answer to the problem.

i really don't care about what olduguu like you have to say, new people join every day and basic information is required for new players to stick around, not everyone is unemployed or unschooled and can sit their asses and play all day for days, deal with it

I wrote the rant while heated, as I was really frustrated with how inconsistent and nonsensical catch rates feel; that + finding nothing about the catch rates on the internet or forum got me mad, I agree that the devs aren't doing a terrible job, they are doing pretty well, but in +10 years that this project has been around I'm still disappointed that they didn't grab a bunch of contributors and wrote a proper wiki going over everything added, old, new, etc. instead leaving users to come up with guides for other uses themselves via trial & error and experimentation, i hope the dev team didn't feel offended or attacked and I hope there are improvements regarding this topic

There's nothing to add or document, it's the standard gen3/4 catch rate, which is almost identical to gen5's as well. The few changes we made to ball rates are already documented.

With just a very quick look:

 

Updated ball formulas for:

  • Dive Ball: Underwater ball bonus is now 2.5x
  • Net Ball: Bug/Water ball bonus is now 2.5x
  • Timer Ball ball bonus is now (1/1.66/2.33/3) for turns (<6, <9, <13, 13+)
  • Quick Ball ball bonus is now 2.25x

 

 

There might be more, but I'm not going looking for them

Hi new dude 🙂 Saw you were frustrated.

Follow my link and ask me if you still have any generic questions 😄

i studied the capture rate in pokemmo for some while and make a website to calc it automatically,most ducoments of balls explain their capture mods and cases,but there still were two balls i didnt know all about their capture mods which were timer ball and nest ball,so i decieded to test them and got results which are:

timer ball (1-5):x1;(6-9):x1.5;(10-12):x2.25;(>12):x3

nest ball (Lv.1-10)x3 (Lv.11-20)x2 (Lv>=21)x1

I didn't see the Changelog: 13/08/2018 until today ,now i need to correct it,but its quite close lol.so the left one is nest ball which ducoments that the capture rate is depended on the weakness of pokemon,so how is the weakness defined,my testing result shows its about pokemons' level.

and my last question is even we calc it as 100% capture rate in theoretical,but atucally we cant catch it some times,like sleeping Hoppip with great ball and angry magikarp in safari.

 

welcome to use my website to calc the pokemon capture rate(timer ball correct will be some later)

but u have the information, both in changelogs and in the item description. if ur unschooled to the point of being illiterate, then maybe u should work on that instead of playing videogames!

unfortunately 99% of people can't and won't sit through +10 years of changelogs just to get one bit of information that should be on a wiki or pinned general thread, if you do however, maybe you are the one who should work on doing something at all, cheers!
