11/12/11: R/B/Y Capture Fixes

Somebody pointed out an off-by-one error on my R/B/Y capture algorithm page (a less than should have been a less than or equal to, and as a result C in the probability formula should have been C + 1), so I went through it all again fixing that and updating the various calculations as well as the catch rate calculator accordingly. The real-world significance of this is basically that Pokémon with low catch rates are a little easier to catch under all circumstances than the page originally stated.

I'm thinking about updating that section to have graphs to illustrate some of the calculations in the mathy bit. Odds are nobody cares, but I do.
