ATQ Regional R1 against Alamaster


magic9mushroom: Well, if you don't want to cheat the EVs should be set to ~90, IIRC that's the equivalent of the minimum Atk Stat Exp to get everything else to max (with Chansey and Magikarp, as I calced once before). But it's still not very much. Apr 16, 2014 3:09:52 GMT -8
marcoasd: It's blatant that Lapras needs the right scenario to take out Chansey, and can't do it vs 100% health. Nice calcs though Apr 16, 2014 8:22:28 GMT -8
magic9mushroom: The benefit of solving the Markov chain, , is that you can see exactly what "the right scenario" is. Apr 16, 2014 15:47:39 GMT -8
marcoasd: I see... you're looking for the point when Lapras' chances get over 50%, right? With the different cases of a paralyzed Chansey and non, and also with different plays like unparalyzed Chansey uses TWave Apr 17, 2014 1:03:21 GMT -8
Isa: Personally I think it's interesting to know everything, not just when the odds are in Lapras' favor. Apr 17, 2014 2:04:50 GMT -8
marcoasd: Of course, but you know, I support that side XD Apr 17, 2014 2:47:02 GMT -8
Isa: Remember when we hated on Smogon and PO for suspecting Swagger? We now have a Smogon "suspect thread" for Baton Pass. Apr 17, 2014 10:51:33 GMT -8 *
SharKing: Yep. Yep-yep. Yep-yep-yep. They're getting out of control with the bans. If they want to hurt Baton Pass that badly, they should just ban Espeon. Apr 17, 2014 12:32:15 GMT -8
SharKing: Of course, they really shouldn't be banning this kind of stuff just because it's a minor inconvenience to them. Apr 17, 2014 12:32:45 GMT -8
kel9901: iirc baton pass only became popular cause swagger became popular, to take advantage of the attack boost while reducing the risk of hitting in confusion (confusion can't be passed) Apr 17, 2014 13:24:23 GMT -8
SharKing: Unless it changed in X/Y, confusion actually CAN be passed. I found that out the hard way quite some time ago. XD Apr 17, 2014 16:57:04 GMT -8
magic9mushroom: As long as they don't bring their silly ban-happy mentality back to RBY I don't really care Apr 17, 2014 17:01:01 GMT -8
magic9mushroom: (they did bring it back to ADV, though, with the Ingrain ban) Apr 17, 2014 17:01:23 GMT -8
brookman: omg I was finally able to log back in to this thing Apr 17, 2014 19:02:09 GMT -8
brookman: where is everybody?? Apr 17, 2014 19:02:15 GMT -8
cheese: Ahh, the Fermi paradox. Apr 17, 2014 20:24:06 GMT -8
magic9mushroom: Just had a battle where none of my Body Slams ever paraed, an opponent paraed me with Thunderbolts, my fullpara rate was ~40%, and his Egg critted Explosion vs. +3 Def Slowbro. FML. Apr 17, 2014 21:50:55 GMT -8
magic9mushroom: Oh, and his Snorlax got a few crits too. Apr 17, 2014 21:53:37 GMT -8
Isa: come back brookman Apr 18, 2014 2:30:15 GMT -8
Isa: noooo i missed brookman because he was logged in during the morning my time Apr 18, 2014 2:30:17 GMT -8
