in case anyone cares:

meowth346 apparently just got his variables misplaced a bit, as we're all prone to do at some point or another. god knows i am! but on to the point: meowth's formula was basically correct, as usual, with only two little boo-boos. i'll try to type it as best i can remember it. (explorer and netscape both crash when i pull up his page. =/)

max_hp * 4 + atk + def + speed + splatk + spldef + n + int(curr_hp/8)+1

where n = wxy0z (binary)

w = attack gene: xxx1
x = defense gene: xxx1
y = speed gene: xxx1
z = special gene: xxx1

(essentially, tho not verbatim.)

the biggest thing that was throwing me off was the +1 at the end of the equation. it's not there. to a smaller degree, the composition of n is slightly backwards, but n was easy enough to figure out once the basic equation was correct. as i said, meowth basically had it right. here's the actual equation:

max_hp * 4 + atk + def + speed + splatk + spldef + n + int(curr_hp/8)

where n = wxy0z

w = defense gene: xx1x
x = attack gene: xx1x
y = special gene: xx1x
z = speed gene: xx1x

so all in all, the research wasn't exactly a complete success, but it certainly wasn't a failure, either. the actual formula HAD been available all along, just as we all assumed it was, it just had a few boo-boos in it that needed straightening out. the right thing to do now would be to e-mail meowth and tell him the problem, but i won't. i can't exactly send e-mail at the moment. account problems. what's that, you say? post it on his forum? well, meowth is a very busy man, and i'm sure this will find it's way to him sometime. besides, i really don't wanna barge into his forum whining, "hey, you did this wrong! this is what it's supposed to look like!" how very annoying. someone just be a dear and get him the news, eh?
