You forgot the "Amount of times you smash the A and B buttons" factor.

On a unrelated note: That picture gets me every fucking time...

I'm not saying it's not true, I just have a problem with you mentioning four variables while the formula only accepts one.
#61 - anonymous (11/20/2014) [-]
I like how They just rewrote right side of it in order to make it seem super scary when its like writing 2^8 as 2^800/100

Thanks Pokemon science man.
User avatar #21 - Aro (11/19/2014) [-]
So why is it when I beat a game and go back to low level areas, I can catch anything with no resistance. Do badges affect catch rate, or possibly the pokemon in my party cause an unspoken statistical intimidation?
#65 - anonymous (11/20/2014) [-]
the level of the pokemon you are fighting and the one you are using also are taken into account
User avatar #10 - omniscientfairy (11/19/2014) [-]
No wait, you are wrong.
The formula in the OP is "shake probability"

That is not he catch rate, although the wiki you linked doesn't say what the hell the "shake probability is or what any of these numbers apart from a mean.

Looks like complexity for the sake of complexity to me.
But what the hell, it's not like you have to solve it when you play the game and it's certainly better than overly simplistic stuff.
User avatar #9 - omniscientfairy (11/19/2014) [-]
I see, so the formula is unnecessary complicated for dramatic effect.
For example, they wrote 255 as 2^8 -1.
Also they already filled in all the variables except the catch rate.
#20 - fauxshores (11/19/2014) [-]
Actually, in programming it is faster to use bit manipulation than it is to use full integers. There is a function that is super fast (.5 clock cycles i think) that basically shifts a bit one to the left or one to the right. By doing that it effectively doubles the number.

The number 13 could be represented as 1101. If you shifted the bits one to the left it would become 11010 which is 16+8+2 which is 26. It takes .5 clock cycles to do that instead of normal multiplication which would take 2ish? I know its at least 4 times slower. Either way, in this case its not really that important because it looks like the function only runs once per catch, but if you are designing a function for something like bullet drop or AI movement which runs every frame or even more often than that, that clock cycle and a half can prevent you from getting choppiness.

Im not sure how long it takes to declare a new int (or short or char in this case) in clock cycles but its probably quick. In either case - Yes, this is needlessly complex and it was probably shown here by someone trying to make it look smarter than it is, but there is an actual use for using powers of 2 instead of multiplying by 2 each time.

TLDR: - Its kinda useless in this case, but 2^2 is faster than 2*2, in some cases that can speed the game up.
User avatar #23 - omniscientfairy (11/20/2014) [-]
That's true, but doesn't it usually automatically do it on operating system level at the latest?
I actually thought that kind of stuff would happen in hardware level, honestly.
User avatar #24 - fauxshores (11/20/2014) [-]
Its all based on your compiler and your commands. It will do the same thing, but the computer will take the instructions of "Move this bit to the left" faster than "Multiply this by two" because that calls a function that calls the bit movement. Machines can do a lot but only what you tell them to
