Author Topic: Catch Rate Question
 mleo2003 Farting Nudist Member # 1618 Member Rated: posted 11-29-2001 08:00 PM                       Hey. I've been trying to use the Catch Rate formula as described on Meowth's site to determine my percentage of catching certain Pokemon, but am not having any luck. It just doesn't work out right. Here is what happens when I use the formula:E = (int((((B * 4) - (A * 2))* C) / B) + D + 1) /256A = 58B = 58This means the Pokemon is at full health.C = 255Catch RateD = 0E = (int((((58 * 4) - (58 * 2)) * 255) / 58) + 0 + 1) / 256E = (int(((232 - 116) * 255) / 58) + 1) / 256E = (int((116 * 255) / 58) + 1) / 256E = (int(29580 / 58) + 1) / 256E = (510 + 1) / 256E = 511 / 256E = about 1.99 * 100 for percentageE is about 199%, which is way to high for a level 15 Meowth!Could someone tell me what I did wrong and help me out? This is really bugging me.- - - - -When life gives you lemons...Throw them back!!! From: Forest, Mississippi | Registered: Mar 2001  |  IP: Logged

I'm not sure, it would be helpful to provide a link to the page you found this on.- - - - -Signature :Signatures can appear at the bottom of your posts.

 mleo2003 Farting Nudist Member # 1618 Member Rated: posted 12-03-2001 11:05 AM                       Here is a link to the page I discovered this on: http://www.geocities.com/meowth346/gs/formulas/catch.htm I am also looking at some Japanese sites through a translator, but they say almost the same exact info.Any and all help would be greatly appreciated.Edit: Sorry about the link. I did it during school and I was trying to listen to the teacher while typing this up. It is fixed, thanks to those who spotted it for me.[ 12-03-2001: Message edited by: mleo2003 ]- - - - -When life gives you lemons...Throw them back!!!
