  • I really appreciated your latest post in the RBY thread. I do monte carlos for a living and recently had a consultant ask me that same question. My answer was basically the same. It's easier to run 500 simulations than analyze a multiple feedback circuit by hand and sorting through the Laplace. Let the bell curves speak for themselves, to hell with differential equations and stochastics.

    This has been my approach to basically everything statistics for such a long time now, I kinda forget that you can just do the maths sometimes...
    Yo, I'm just some random who wants to say that I disagree with your premise in this post that the hax factor is more impactful in good vs bad or great vs bad than in great vs good. I believe the rng plays a stronger role in determining the results of a match when the skill gap between two players is smaller.

    Incidentally, I'm not convinced pokemon is a game with sufficient depth to benefit from completely removing luck based variety. (these things also vary based on the metagame/generation mechanics in question) So I understand your objections to removing rby miss / recover bug.

    So I would say, for at least gen 4 onwards, and probably gen 3 and possibly 2, that you could more or less remove all the RNG without damaging the richness of the game. For Gen 1 specifically though, is a bit too narrow.

    I think the rps in chess comes from choosing what to spend mental bandwidth on, either in calculation or preparation. Although it probably isnt really useful making the comparison.

    That makes a lot of sense, thanks for responding to me and putting up with my spam.

    Hey, do you remember me? I was around back in the day. If so, would be cool to catch up. If not, it's OK, Mr.E said he doesn't remember me either.

    I was there on Netbattle, on IRC, on forums, generally all around. I was wondering what had happened to you, Jumpman, Vineon, BH, and the gang. Is anybody else still around?
    Hipmonlee
    Hipmonlee
    Vineon has been gone a long time, BH and Jumpman I'm not sure about, I haven't been in touch with them anyway. TBH most people from back then I am not really in touch with any more.
    Duckman
    Duckman
    Oh ok. Yeah I was like 14 or something back then. Didn't even think to consider that I should keep in touch with some of the coolest people I'll ever meet. Anyway I saw in the below post that you have kids now. I do too. Crazy to think about how we all got on :). If you ever want to chat hit me up. I'm in one of those gym league discords, not sure if you ever heard of them, it's pretty chill, we could talk there.

    Hey, just to let you know that something has come up and Sunday morning is almost certainly not gonna work for me now. I will let you know as soon as I figure out when I'll be available. It shouldnt be a problem, we can probably do that time pretty much any day after Sunday, but I am not sure yet.

    Hipmonlee
    Hipmonlee
    I'm GMT +13. The best time for me is Saturday morning, so that's Friday evening for you? Can you do like 8:30pm?

    Hi, we play for the ADV seasonal R2. I'm GMT-5 and seeing your timezone this will get difficult. My Sunday night is the most likely time for me, thinking anywhere in the range of 7 to 10 PM. This *should* be 2-5 PM the next for you if I'm getting it right. Does that work? Lmk ASAP when you can fight.
    Hipmonlee
    Hipmonlee
    Yeah that should be ok too. Well, we'll have two goes at it and see what perspires.

    Hipmonlee
    Ok, I found a pub with eduroam, got my lunch and a beer and im on main as Kitmonlee
    adv seasonal, im gmt-5. can do weekdays after 5pm my time with exception to Monday (today) and Wednesday. Weekends only work for me after 8pm my time. Ophion#1275 on discord to make the rest of scheduling easier if u use discord
    Hipmonlee
    Hipmonlee
    Friday 5pm would be perfect. If that's a problem then some time Friday evening will probably work, unless it clashes with another pokemon match.
    Ophion
    Ophion
    really sorry i didnt lyk as soon as i found out man, but im playing ost at that time. would friday 8pm my time work for u? id rather achedule on discord from here tbh, just easier given im juggling some stuff this week
    For your RBY Counter thread, what about if a Pokemon is hit with Disable on a Counter-able move they used while going first?
    P1 uses Seismic Toss, then P2 uses Disable.
    P1 uses Whirlwind (which means they will go second), while Player 2 uses Counter. Does Player 2 succeed?
    Champion Leon
    Champion Leon
    Ya. I just figured you covered it all, except Disable. Good catch on Whirlwind, so basically Toxic + Whirlwind is unstoppable
    Hipmonlee
    Hipmonlee
    Whirlwind and Roar have no effect at all in link battles in RBY.
    Champion Leon
    Champion Leon
    Omg I forgot. Yeah, it fails unless it’s a Wild Battle.
    Thank you for being on, and have a nice day.
    Hipmonlee
    Hipmonlee
    Thanks man, that's nice to hear. Have a nice day too.
    Hi, im just here to say I enjoyed your games as a spectator and hope you don't quit again!
    Hipmonlee
    Hipmonlee
    Thanks, I never quit, I just take a break from time to time. Might not be playing too much for the next wee while anyway. Got a trip away in August so that is preventing me from being involved in any tournaments for now.
