Hello again, I've done some playtesting and found that in Stadium body slam has more like a 50% chance of paralisis. In that case, wouldn't it be better to have that instead of Thunder wave?

Well, it depends. Maybe on some like Snorlax, but obviously not on Chansey.

Yeah, if the pokemon had an attack so low that the body slam wouldn't do crap anyway, then it would be better to stick with thunderwave.

It's supposed to be a 1-in-3 chance, but against the computer, it sure seems like it has a 50% chance...
Things with high attack that can make good use of it...Flareon, Arcanine, Tauros, Snorlax, etc...can use Body Slam.
If you're using something with low attacking power, like say...Alakazam, Jolteon, and other such pokemon, take T-Wave. Plus, if you don't want to take the chansey..er, chance..of Body Slam paralyzing, Thunder Wave is a much better choice.

Don't think of it as 50% to 100%; think of it as 1/2 to 1/1.

I didn't think we were. I only said "yea it would" b/c me and Biffster say that all the time in real life.
