      Oh, okay. I'll keep my mouth closed about such secrets. While this might seem to be a stupid question (I'm not even half as qualified as you to discuss this stuff), is the battle RNG derived from the Mersenne Twister RNG? Or are there two separate algorithms? Moreover, has anyone tried using save-states to reproduce AI results and battle RNG results?

      While I do have some experience on using emulators, I really can't understand RAM dumps. At the same time, most emulators are really inefficient in using computer resources, it takes 50% of my 2.4 GHz C2Quad and 300MB of my RAM for Pokemon Platinum for 10-15fps. That's not acceptable, if it can run so well on a DS's ARM9/7 CPUs.

      Thank you, thank you! Interestingly, 723898027648 has exactly the same team as the battle which I gave you. Also, in the pastebin file, all the turns from turn 12 have exactly the same data, though I am unable to interpret anything from it. Are the three battles conclusive to any glitch? Also, can it be reproduced?

      I'm actually interested in analyzing battle videos and I want to know how it's done. Though, if it is a trade secret of yours, that's okay.

      Kaphotics, I found this really weird battle on the Global Terminal yesterday. It looks like an extreme glitch or form of hacking after turn #12. Can you have a look at this battle: 66-52221-27416? Your analysis will be much appreciated!

      Kaphotics thanks for everything. I'm not sure if I have told you this already but thanks for all you have done. You have helped me learn RNG many times and taught me a lot of other things. Thanks for being there for me and I hope you continue your research and I wish you the best of luck on all you do. Thanks.

      Hi, do you know of any good people who might be able to teach me to RNG?

      A lot of the guides fly right over my head, and I only get about half the things they say...
