  1. Pokemon Platinum - The definitive thread: Mach 2 (In-Game Discussion)

    This is supposed to be all the Battle Frontier Pokémon, or so the ROM says anyway (data/battle/b_pl_tower/pl_btdpm.narc, for those interested). As I was trying to find _direct_ Move Tutor evidence in the ROM, I thought I should try finding the BF movesets instead, and yes, Outrage Salamence...
  2. Correct grammar and spelling on the internet

    You English-speakers are lucky when it comes to this. I mean, we Portuguese-speakers have to deal with shit like Miguxês and Tiopês (though the latter is more like a satire of the former TBH - also, links in Portuguese). And Japanese's Gyaru-moji is even worse, trust me. As for myself, I try my...
  3. Chatting and IM Software

    The XChat binaries for Windows are an exception, which are only free (as in beer) for the first 30 days (and then, pay $19,99). Sure, you can still get the source and try to compile it yourself if you know how to - only the precompiled Windows binaries need to be paid for. Just something I...
  4. [on site] The Complete Damage Formula for Diamond & Pearl

    I haven't seen it anywhere yet, so I've whipped up a little JavaScript damage calculator based on the formula. There might be a few mistakes left to iron out, and yes, the coding style is rather meh. Anyway, it will work on all four "major browsers" (Firefox, Opera, IE, Safari), and is also...
  5. DP Research Thread #2 ("New")

    Regarding OHKOs and Substitutes, I have a question: I verily remember that (in XD at least), if a Pokémon used Substitute and ended up with less than 1/4 HP (or any case in which the Subs's current HP _exceeds_ the Pokémon's), OHKO moves wouldn't "break it on contact", but instead, deal damage...
  6. Another D/P simulator... on Mirc!

    Yep, seems like another DP sim popped out of nowhere. Interesting thing is that this one is Mirc-based, just like Fanha's bots were, trying even to stay close to the original syntax of the commands, and such (! num attacks, # num switches, etc.). Items aren't working yet, though, and only...
  7. Getting rid of spyware, viruses, trojans etc.

    If all else fails, there's still HijackThis, which should be used really as a last-ditch resort and will generate a log of all the "differences" between a clean install and your current system. Then you post said log to a specialized forum and they'll tell you if there is any malware...
  8. the new front page of smogon

    That's just me, but it'd be good if the top menus also popped up by just focusing the items (via keyboard) instead of *only* by mouseover, in case a mouse is somehow unavailable to me (be it misconfiguration, dead batteries or I just not having enough hand coordination to use one lol)...
  9. RMC - Rate My Complaint

    Hm, I'd say I always "play to win", even though I never really "play to win". Why? Because if I "literally" did so, the whole play-to-win thingy would end up defeating its own purpose (winning), for I'd never stop to "take a breath", that is, try out and research other strategies than what I'm...
  10. DPP information / resource thread.

    Precisely, even though my "lurking too much, posting too little" behaviour stands still =P
  11. DPP information / resource thread.

    TXT Pokédex, White Cat style. (also in Portuguese) I've searched around and haven't found anything like that for DP, so I whipped one up. Also consolidates a few topics already researched. EDIT: New URLs.
  12. Chinese DP NB Translation!

    I like the way the ideographs for Monferno read EXACTLY as "Moukazaru" if read as Japanese =P Infernape would be "Rekkazaru", though. And Lucario, Dialga and Palkia also seem to have been "directly translated" (Lǔcǎlìōu/Díaòlǔjiā/Pàlǔqíyà, if I got them right).
  13. DP Research Thread #1 ("Old")

    Okay, I've searched the thread and haven't found anything regarding this, so: In case anyone was wondering (besides me), I've conducted a little test concerning Synchronize: even if the bearer is Toxic'd, Synchronize will still pass over normal poison (which is kinda of a letdown IMO - not that...
  14. Catch Rates of Poke Balls

    Actually between 0 and 65535. The real formula doesn't have the "/ 65536" part, I just did that because it's easier for us to look at percentages =P
  15. Catch Rates of Poke Balls

    From a Japanese site, it seems to me the catch rate formula has changed from GSC: Status is 2 for Sleep and Freeze, 1,5 for others, 1 otherwise. If Rate evaluates to above 255, the Pokémon is automatically caught and the step below is entirely skipped. Now this is where it goes psycho: A...
