By creating your account you are now able to edit pages, join discussions, and expand the community-driven Pokémon encyclopedia. Before you jump in, here are some ground rules:

  • Be nice to everyone. It's in the code of conduct.
  • Make good edits. Preview them before you save to make sure they're perfect the first time around.
  • Use wikicode and link templates when adding content to a page.
  • Use proper grammar and spelling, and read the manual of style.
  • You can't create a userpage until you've added to the encyclopedia. It's a privilege. See the userspace policy.
  • Use talk pages to resolve editing disputes. Don't "edit war," or constantly re-edit/undo the same thing on a page.
  • If you have a question about something, be proactive. Take a look at our FAQ. If you're still stuck, ask for help. The staff won't bite.
  • Sign all talk page posts with four tildes (~~~~). This will turn into your name and the time you wrote the comment.
  • For more handy links, see the welcome portal.
Thank you, and have a good time editing here!

The Preview Button

Instead of editing a page several times in a row, try using the preview button to make sure your edit looks the way you want it to. It's right next to the Save Page button. Please try it out, so as not to clog up the Recent Changes. Also, if you want to edit multiple sections of the page, make sure that you click "edit this page" at the top of the page rather than editing it by section. Thanks! --glikglak 00:08, 24 July 2015 (UTC)

Constrict Stadium effect chance

Hey, when you did this, were you doing that while looking at game data? I'm asking because at that time our page had the additional effect at 10% for RB, which apparently was wrong; so it could be either way. For now, I kinda had to assume you weren't (but in case you actually were and they changed it in Stadium already but forgot the desciption, I'd be very glad if you could change it back).

You're right, I did not. Also, I just dived into the disassembly for Pokémon Red/Blue, and found that the exact effect chance for Constrict (and any other move that has a potential side effect of causing a stat modification) in those games is 85/256 — basically one in three. (If you're wondering why I didn't check this before, the answer is that I wasn't as familiar with the disassemblies back then.) So, nice catch! Thanks for cleaning up my mistake.

No worries, I know it was hard in the olden days! Also, that's exactly what I checked. I was a bit unsure as to whether you're ahead of us in Stadium internals. Thanks for your instant reply! Nescientist (talk) 21:12, 22 March 2017 (UTC)
Anytime! I just checked, and the other five moves that have the same "stat down side effect" effect code in RB are Bubble, Bubblebeam, Aurora Beam, Acid and Psychic. In case someone wants to go and fix them, if they aren't fixed yet. Aaaaaa123456789 (talk) 21:27, 22 March 2017 (UTC)
I already fixed the ones mentioned at that talk page, then found out Acid wasn't mentioned but also incorrect, and thought I'd compile a complete list some other day. But yes, it was only Acid, so I've fixed it too now. Thanks! Nescientist (talk) 21:46, 22 March 2017 (UTC)
