edit: sorry for the double post, I didn't know I already posted it
Same: there was one time where I was sweeping through an entire team with Choice Scarfed Jalorda. It came down to Jalorda vs. Politoed with me having 5 pps on Leaf Storm. The opponent subsequently protected the entire 5 pps. Kinda sad when you think about it. I still think protect should be guaranteed to fail after the first successful attempt (as a general mechanic, not just on PO).I'm not exaggerating when I say someone has successfully used Protect on me 4 consecutive times during a PO match, I don't know the odds, but that's interesting.
The total chance of your Protect-string working gets cut in half everytime you use it (and try to extend your string). The chance of each individual one doesn't, so the chance of 4 protects working in a row would be equivalent to the chance of getting a critical hit.It's still annoying chances, and I have heard it cuts in half each time, so I was never sure which one it was.(either way 4 consecutively is damn lucky)
Allow me to redirect you to here:http://www.smogon.com/forums/forumdisplay.php?f=53I have a question regarding RNGing for a Pokemon.
I am currently engaging in the Double-Tapping process (1,149 Double-Taps on this occurrence), and I am wondering while double-tapping you accidentally click on one of the juxtaposing pokemon if it affects the amount of Double-Taps that you are attempting to get.
Thank you for any and all speedy or sluggish response!
And have a nice day!
