Author Topic: First time here, and need help for things.
 SoreThumb Orangutan Spouse Member # 233 Rate Member posted 04-05-2000 05:51 PM                     Backstory: For mIRC, I'm making a scriptlet that should let someone play Pokémon in Text, not to mention fight others.Problem: 1. I have no clue on the capture ratio of certain balls.. Do Pokéballs catch Pokemon below level 30?.. Super 30-60?.. Ultra 60-100?.. And do they depend on certain Pokemon?.. Argh!.. 2. EXP.. Geez, that is going to be a bit hard, for each Pokemon..?.. 3. Stat POINTS given for stat EXPERIENCE.. Marcus's essay is helpful. .If I set what I want for POINTS into the equation. And since mIRC is stoo stupid to do that... I'm going to need the opposite of the equation. -_- Like.. SP == (((234234/234 * SE) ^ .5) + 5) +3) or something. @_@ Things done so far: 1. I am putting the Base Stats into the program.2. I'm putting the info into the program for Rentals.3. Cry and whine for help. =pThanks for any and all help. =)------------------ Registered: Apr 2000  |  IP: Logged

Don't ask why, that's just how it is for this ^_^Now, i'm still working on getting the Ball/Catch formulas organized. But this is some various informaiton for you to consider.When you use a Master Ball, it catches no matter what, save it's not another Trainer's Pokémon, which is uncatchable.When a Ball is thrown, it selects a random number:Poke Ball: 0 ~ 255Great Ball: 0 ~ 200Ultra & Safari Ball: 0 ~ 150Now, I'll make somthing called X. If the random number from above is less than X, you've caught the Pokémon.So, what's X? If the opponent is Sleep or Freeze, then X=12. If not, then X=25.Then there's figuring HP into this, plus each Pokémon has a catch rate telling how hard they are to catch.Okay, i may not have been much help, but hop[efully I'll have all of this work on my website soon and available to the public.--Meowth346 Registered: Mar 2000  |  IP: Logged

(Maybe the EXP rate of growth?)Anyone can cover EXP and the StatPoint equation..? <=)------------------ Registered: Apr 2000  |  IP: Logged

 Volrath50 Farting Nudist Member # 171 Member Rated: posted 04-05-2000 08:29 PM                    Perhaps differant Pokémon are easier to capture with differant balls. (That did not come out right.)I mean it's probably luck but I seem to have a better chance to capture the birds with a great ball than an Ultra Ball... Then again it seems that way for everything for me. But espesilly the Rare Birds.....------------------"Mew!"Our friend, Mewtwo From: A little town, somewhere in Canada. | Registered: Mar 2000  |  IP: Logged
 SoreThumb Orangutan Spouse Member # 233 Rate Member posted 04-05-2000 10:36 PM                     Nonono, you misunderstand..I need the equations to go with the game, so I can put it into my scriptlet.Hopefully, someon eelse I know knows it, and will join me..But I doubt he wlil, so, thanks for the help! =)------------------ Registered: Apr 2000  |  IP: Logged
 Meowth346 Farting Nudist Member # 166 posted 04-06-2000 08:40 PM                    One thing to keep in mind is that Every Single Pokemon has its own (what I call) "Catch Rate". This is a number that basically says "Caterpie is easy to catch" and "Mewtwo is hard to catch". This number is a vital part of the equation that it played out when a ball is thrown.Also, Freeze and Sleep effect the catchability. Paralyze probably does, too, though I don't remember.--Meowth346------------------ Registered: Mar 2000  |  IP: Logged
