      hey just a question. in the damage calc why would a move like dual chop have the same % shown as dragon claw despite 2 40 hits =\= 1 80 hit cuz of damage rolls. shouldn't it run the calc for 2 40s instead
      1. Honko
        Honko
        iirc the summary shows total damage of all hits combined since that's what you usually care about, and the exact rolls for a single hit are shown in parentheses below that for when you want to know the exact numbers. If it's not working correctly talk to Austin, he does all of the development on the calc now.

      Hi Honko! I'm currently writing code for a damage calculator for our school's Computer Science Fair and I have a couple of questions (given that you developed the BW Damage Calculator. What language did you use to write it and how did you catergorize the Pokemon by type so the formulas know what to calculate? Thanks Honko!

        Yeah sorry, it was a bit confusing. I'll try to reword it lol. Currently, I'm asking the user to input the attacker's type, defender's type, and the stats/other modifiers that would factor into the damage. I'm looking to change the code to where it is like the current Showdown calculator where the user simply picks the Pokemon and inputs EVs and IVs along with any items or weather. How did you pull the Pokemon's typing/stats from the dex? I'm not looking to copy your work but rather get an idea of what you did so I have a basis. Here's a link to a screenshot of what I currently have. Thanks again! http://imgur.com/a/3NDD5

        Possibly making a separate javascript file with the Pokemon's stats and typing and then pulling those stats/typing from that file and incorporating it into my javascript file that runs the calculation itself. Not sure if that would work though.

        I wrote a separate script that makes requests to the same APIs that the dex pages use to populate their data, and then transforms the responses into the data that the calc needs and writes that to files. The calc then uses those files. You can see what those files look like here: https://github.com/Zarel/honko-damagecalc/tree/master/js/data

      hi honko, would you happen to know the difference in damage calculation from rby and gsc to later gens to where there are many more numbers bellow the hko message (rolls i assume?)
      1. Honko
        Honko
        Rolls are between 217-255 / 255 in gens 1/2, and 85-100 / 100 in later gens. It's very close to the same overall range, but there are more possibilities between the min and max rolls in gens 1/2.

      Just wanna say thanks for the team generator, it's really cool. It's really fun to use and helps me a ton for metas where I don't have teams or are playing a really obscure tier. Hope you keep expanding it.

        Thanks! Glad you're enjoying it. I do plan to keep working on it when I have time.

      cheers honko ^.^

      just wondering if you're still planning on finishing those dpp nu analyses. i'm hoping to get that part of c&c cleaned up a bit before the new gen~

        Honko
        I am. It's gonna be very slow going (like 1 a month) but I do plan to finish the ones I've posted and do several more that I haven't started yet. I'll also eventually pick up and finish the ones Oglemi posted if he doesn't want to.
