Hi folks,

I was looking at pokemon weights on Pokemon Forever, and I noticed that metric and English weights don't seem to agree. For example, slaking weighs 1305 kg/287.7 lb. However, 1305 kg is actually 2,877 lb! I can't check Slaking (cause I haven't evolved one yet), but in the case of voltorb, 104 kg/22.9 lb, the English weight seems to be correct. Is this correct, or is the weight on metric versions 10.4, as seems more likely? I'm suspecting that, in an extremely rare error, Meowth has slipped a digit. This is not totally inconsequential, as weight affects low kick's damage.

Hmmm... this is odd.

All I know is that 2.2lbs = 1kg, irl. Not sure about poke-weights, though.

as far as i remember there was an additional algorithm to convert kg too lb in the US versions. The data in the rom are in kg.

Ok, a few questions:

1. Where on his site did you find Pokemon weights? I've been searching for a week or two, and have yet to find it.

2. I think your conversion of Voltorb's weight is a little off. 104 kg converted normally is 229 lbs. Doing it the Poke-Way is 22.9, like it should.

So for, the Poke-Way for converting looks like .22lbs = 1kg. This makes Slaking's weights look right now, and Voltorb's as well.

So all American pokemon are underweight by a factor of ten? Was there originally a reason for that?

There's a box in the upper left of the pokedex that displays misc. information on the pokemon. Scroll down to see the weight. Does anyone have a non-US version, to check the metric weights against?

I found it, both on his site and in the ROM. Basically, it can do it one of two ways:

1. The weight can be simply converted with * .22
2. Divide the weight in the ROM by 10 before converting normally (* 2.2)

Either of those methods work correctly. The Values in the ROM are exactly the same as the ones found on Meowth's website.

Not able to look at ROMs myself, is the decimal implied or explicit?

I'm pretty sure your player's guide doesn't open anymore. You made the pages too sticky.
