Anybody with Admin below their name is definitely me or a trusted person. I myself will always sign as Butterfree. If somebody signs under that name but does not have the Admin label, it is most likely an impostor.

So Deoxys' catch rate actually wasn't changed between XY and ORAS. That's actually kind of interesting.

That's the first thing I thought of, to be honest.

I'm trying to recreate the shiny charm in Fire Red, but with the possibility of increasing the chance further (up to 1/256).

However, the problem with 1/256 is that it's a 32-fold increase, and, since even 1/256 is fairly rare, pretty much every Pokemon would have their Personality Value regenerated 32 times, which is kind of ridiculous.

I was hoping for some kind of formula that would keep the pseudo-randomness, but still increase the chance by some factor.

Oh well, I guess it's not a big deal - the PRNG is fast anyway.

Sorry for the long post.

(When I said "however many times it's allowed to regenerate the value", of course, I meant to say the total number of times that it generates the value, not only the regenerations.)

They simply check after the personality value is generated whether the Pokémon would be shiny, and if not it regenerates it, up to a given number of times. Thus, instead of the Pokémon being shiny if a single generated personality value fits the shiny criteria, it's shiny if any of several values generated fit the criteria. This leads to an overall shiny chance of however many times it's allowed to regenerate the value times the regular shiny chance.

Do you know anywhere I could read about the mechanics of the Shiny Charm, or Masuda Method?

I understand how they affect the rate of shininess, but I'm interested in how they affect the generation of the personality value.

It's fairly obvious that somehow it sabotages the randomness to make shininess more likely, but I'm not sure how.

"Don't expect it to have any correlation with your results in the old type quiz, which is still around."

*Takes new type quiz*

*Gets the exact same result as the old type quiz*

So much for that. (I'm Ground, BTW)

Please do the "inside look to the Pokémon games." That would make my year, and the next one too! Maybe if you do R/B/Y, you could also explain "what happened, what was supposed to happen, and what got mixed up in-between."


I would love to see this happen.

I was reading over your DP Changes, and you mentioned how hard it was to get used to the Physical / Special Split.

Anymore, at least for me, it's the completely opposite. I've been playing Fire Red, and have to constantly remind myself that there isn't one.

Happy belated birthday to the Cave of Dragonflies! It's really weird to think that I'm only two years older than your site…

Happy birthday, TCoD! Here's to another twelve years.

To think that when you started out, you probably never imagined the site would end up where it is today…
