Some comments you made here inspired Wintermute to go a-testin' and it turns out that Fire Blast's chance to burn is 30% (not the widely-reported 20%).

That's kinda interesting...

...but much more interesting is that Blizzard's chance to freeze is 10%, not 30%! Yes, in RBY!

So all that yammering about it being toned down to 10% in Stadium is totally bogus.

Funny how much stuff that everyone knows turns out to be incorrect...

Anyway, thanks again, Porky...we'd never have bothered to test otherwise.

(And when I say "we", I mean "Wintermute". I went a little nutty yesterday and did some real research, but it's still nothing like that spunky little Porygon's stuff.)

So Blizzard really only freezes the same as Ice Beam??? Wow... in R/B/Y?? I predict we will be seeing a lot more Ice Beams on people's teams from henceforth. Are you guys going to post your results for the freezing? I'd like to see the results (cool if you could compare numbers for ice bea against blizzard).

Way cool!

Great! Thanks for the info, and if a reliable critical hit formula is discovered, if someone would e-mail me it I would be appreciative.

But, though....It just seems to me that ice punch, for example, freezes less than blizzard. 20% maybe?

Lorelei's Jynx (in RBY) almost always freezes my pokemon when they use ice punch, but her lapras rarely freezes with blizzard...

That Jynk almost never freezes my Pokémon, and neither does the Lapras, maybe freeze rate is also determined by stats? Maybe not, maybe it was just bad luck (you should boost your luck stat ).

Even in Colluseum Two?

Well then, good thing I never actually raised the Blizzard Bunker Starmie, but come to think of it, it'd still rock like hell.

Interesting comments.

I can't speak for Wintermute, so I've forwarded this thread to him, using the Voltorb thing.

Nope, Ice Punch is 10% too.

A crit hit page is in the works.

Stay tuned!

By the way, Blizzard was not yet tested in Col2 mode...but since other claims made about Col2 have been wrong, I wouldn't be surprised if it's the same...
