 poccil Farting Nudist Member # 1457 posted 07-23-2001 01:03 PM                        Critical Hits in RBy are decided by a formula: quote:CH Number = int(int(int(S/2)*N)/256)S = Pokémon's Base SpeedN = CH Modifier: N starts at 1. If you have used Focus Energy, divide N by 4.*If you are using Karate Chop, Slash, Razor Leaf, or Crabhammer, multiply N by 4.If a random number, from 0 to 256, is lower than the CH Number, the attack is a Critical Hit.* It is known that Focus Energy reduces the chances of a Critical Hit. This has been fixed in Stadium (in which you should multiply, instead of divide, by 4)In GS: quote:Calculation of Critical Hits is NOT based on Speed, as was the case in RBY.A Critical Hit doubles the amount of damage done to the opponent by ignoring statistical modifications. During a Critical Hit:If the Defense stat stage for either Pokemon is greater than 0, it temporarily becomes 0. If the Attack stat stage for either Pokemon is less than 0, it temporarily becomes 0. Determining Chances of a Critical HitA Critical Hit is based on value n and a random number. If the random number is less than n, then the attack is a Critical Hit. But how is n decided?If Chansey is equipped with Lucky Punch, n=2. If Farfetch'd is equipped with Long Leek, n=2. If neither is true, n=0. If Focus Energy has been used, then add 1 to n. If the attack is Karate Chop/Razor Leaf/Crab Hammer/Slash/Aero Blast/Cross Chop, then add 2 to n.(Add 0 to n for any other attacks.) If Scope Lens is equipped, add 1 to n. After determining n, you'll get a Critical Hit (CH) number:n CH Number 0 17 1 32 2 64 3 85 4 128 If the random number (from 1 to 256) is less than the CH Number, then the attack is a Critical Hit. Igglybuff, that's what I mean for random numbers.------------------Peter Occil, in charge of The Ultimate Pokemon CenterCheck out my Gold/Silver Guides! http://www.poccil.f2s.com/games/gs/guides/Help me answer tough GS questions![This message has been edited by poccil (edited 07-23-2001).] Registered: Jan 2001  |  IP: Logged
