I understand not wanting to simulate 20 rounds of inaccurate attacks, but what about, like, three? Giving up the instant a single Double Team comes out is silly.
No. 139628 ID: 7e479a

I know Espeon learned a psychic move specifically to help her not get knocked up, but I'm kinda hoping that there's secret rolls for a chance for her to get pregnant anyways.

Mostly because she needs to keep her concentration on that psychic move and there's always a chance that she'll lose her concentration during sex with Linoone.

if you run the calcs all of stetson's other pokemon are dealing like 20% damage per hit to kingdra so with the chesto rest and a hyper potion on top of that it wasn't happening

you are actually so right. huge brain horny suggestor. i'll do a coin flip for it next update, tho since pokemon gestation seems to be instant it won't be onscreen
No. 139634 ID: 273c18

20% damage a hit... yeah, with Rest's Sleep status lasting 3 turns at most, even just with that Kingdra's basically unkillable. Get it down to below 60% and it will Rest, doing it again if it got hit 3 times during the Sleep, and otherwise having a safe action. Granted, it's only 5 PP. Hmm.

Ok, let's see what happens after Kingdra rests after using Double Team 6 times, using the original levels we had during the fight:

kingdra 48% damage ice beam (it can't kill in two hits, damage variance doesn't matter)
pelipper 15-18% damage shock wave
kingdra 48% damage ice beam
pelipper 15-18% damage shock wave
kingdra 48% ice beam KO, 64-70% health remaining
swap Flygon in
Flygon 52-62% Dragon Breath probably misses, can't KO
Kingdra Ice Beam guaranteed OHKO
swap Torkoal in
Kingdra 53-62% Water Gun (I assume it has that)
Torkoal Sunny Day
Kingdra 27-33% Water Gun
Torkoal 19-23% Body Slam probably misses
Kingdra Water Gun KO
swap Aggron in
Kingdra 30-36% Water Gun
Aggron 21-25% Iron Tail probably misses
Kingdra 30-36% Water Gun
Aggron 21-25% Iron Tail probably misses
Kingdra 30-36% Water Gun (56% chance to KO)
Aggron 21-25% Iron Tail probably misses if not KO'd, last potential attack

So, overall we're going to be putting out a potential of 164-196% damage, before evasion, and Kingdra can choose to Rest with high evasion so it's very safe, and the Hyper Potion will likely come out after the Dragon Breath if it hits, which means yeah the chance of victory is very low. Even if Kingdra gets unlucky and gets hit a couple times during a Rest, they can just Rest again against literally anyone but Flygon, and with 2 or 3 PP left after stalling against Pelipper to stack evasion, that's enough.

Flygon being 2 levels higher means Dragon Breath will do 56.8 - 67.2%, and Pelipper being 2 levels higher means Shock Wave is... the same. I guess rounding killed any potential damage increase.
No. 139636 ID: 273c18

Ah fuck I'm dumb, I forgot to do any simulations for Peilipper peppering Kingdra during the Double Team phase. Kingdra won't be at full hp when it starts trying to kill Pelipper, so after at least three Shock Waves, Dragon Breath has a chance to KO. 45%-51% from three Shock Waves, and Dragon Breath does 52-62%!

33% chance of victory. Unless I guess the trainer uses a Hyper Potion in response to Pelipper's fourth Shock Wave, but that's when she dies, meaning Flygon is out. Then it's an 11% chance of victory since Flygon will need to hit twice. ...when do gym leaders use potions? At half hp? Does the AI prefer to use potions instead of Rest? I'm having trouble finding useful results on a websearch. I'm wondering if the gym leader would wind up spending the second hyper potion while stalling for double team against Pelipper. That would mean it's definitely 33%.

An alternate strategy would be to swap Torkoal in first, to use Sunny Day and continue weakening Kingdra alongside Aggron, attempting to reduce it down to Dragon Breath OKHO range, then die on purpose for the free swap, but I guess the whole point of this was to see how Stetson's original strategy would turn out.
No. 139637 ID: 273c18

>45%-51% from three Shock Waves, and Dragon Breath does 52-62%!
Oh shoot, that's 97-113% (rounded down, worth noting). Not quite 33% chance to win, since we need to avoid minimum damage rolls. Close though!
No. 139638 ID: 273c18

Ah, that simulation also assumes that the final Rest stall against Pelipper only allows 1 extra hit. If it lasts longer... well, we can use Surf to miss or do less damage.

...tippler, I noticed the speed values in my calc are significantly lower than the ones in quest. Did you leave all the IVs at 31?! If that's on purpose, then level 50 Sceptile can't guarantee a OHKO. Though, I'm not sure what IVs are appropriate. I've been using 0. 31 IVs for everyone means a bit less percent damage dealt, due to HP being higher. It also means that stats are a bit more normalized-- large differences between base stats result in not so large differences in the final stats. Chansey's the biggest outlier there.
No. 139639 ID: 273c18

Ah, 31 in all IVs means level 51 Flygon doesn't get oneshot all the time from Kingdra's Ice Beam, so that would've had a 75% chance to survive and try another Dragon Breath, greatly increasing our odds of victory.

myconid im honestly very impressed you took the extreme effort to simulate it out. i should have mentioned im using the average of the low to high damage range for all the attacks since im not doing probability on that too. i keep the ivs for all stats for all pokemon at the default max 31

at this point this is the way im doing the battles and i controlled stetson in the last fight and i wanted to be able to play more hearthstone that evening so i cut it short. flygon will survive having to spend an extra day on juan and so will you.
No. 139642 ID: 273c18

Yeah it's fine, I was half curious to see what the chances were, and half wanting to show that it wouldn't be that many extra turns to simulate the actions that had a significant impact (Pelipper's guaranteed hits and Flygon's Dragon Breath attempts). Aggron and Torkoal really are useless once evasion is high.
It wasn't *that* much effort... if I had known the IVs were left at max then it would've taken even less time.

I don't know who this myconid fellow is though. I don't use a name on questden.

For your latest alien quest, what are you expectations for yourself and your players? Any goals you can share with us without spoiling things for everyone?

Will we get to do morally good/bad/grey things?

As a Salikai, will people try to kill us, or are we free to openly do as we please?

if we're still in hiding, would it benefit us to gather several rogue Neumono's to make a loyal cadre of followers / test subjects / friends? Cuz like, no one would ever expect any Neumono to work with, let alone befriend a Salikai. Friends with economical and health benefits?

i feel like all arkots are shortstacks by default but here is a picture of the artists interpretation of a scene arkot

by the first part of the google definition of "an enthusiast for animal characters with human characteristics, in particular a person who dresses up in costume as such a character or uses one as an avatar online.", yes, because drawing anthropomorphic animals is fun and easier than drawing humans.

by the second part, no. i don't have a fursuit or any interest in getting one. i also don't have sona. carl marks is my profile picture for most things because he's desirable in a way only i can comprehend. as you can see when i draw myself it is usually as a human caricature

in conclusion im on the spectrum of furryness. less furry than my comrade edmango and other fine questden authors and marginally more furry than the average artist.

Uh hold on uh, why the recognition avoidance checks? Flygon never met the Elite 4, did he? Do they think he's somehow connected with the pokemon who were bullying Lanette? He did ask her about the PC system, but got shut down like a total weenie, so it didn't seem very memorable? How would they recognize him, if Lanette isn't there herself to pick out which flygon it was? Does he have a cool scar or something?

Word's gotten around about the human turned Flygon. And we probably act different from a normal Flygon, so... the Elite Four just have to put two and two together.

pictured: me simulating 20+ turns of fights more than once (this kills the quest author)

this has been explained in quest, basically what Sgt said in reply to you. Flygon has no idea what's going on on the human side of things because he has talked to lanette exactly once so it may seem a bit out of left field but like all the head honchos talk to each other and are concerned about team friendlies and the rise of literacy. there are also pictures of you shopping and doing un-pokemon like things so there is basis for you being an anomaly. brendan has ratted on you to some extent, tho he's also protecting stetson by not saying you're with him.

for the sand option, if milotic misses enough wallace will just give up, which is what has happened in other battles in the quest. otherwise milotic would live forever
No. 139992 ID: 8f9bc4


While the odds of that happening are absolutely terrible because sand attack is terrible, I still kinda want to see that
No. 139994 ID: e13b1d

The odds may be terrible. But with Sand Attack on our side, the odds are never zero. And that's important!
No. 139995 ID: 273c18

If we get only two sand attacks off (50% chance) then accuracy is 50%. Idk what the cutoff is, I'm guessing four attacks missed in a row, which would be .5^4, or 6.25% to happen immediately. After that... the enemy wins if they hit us 9 times before they miss four in a row. That's a rather difficult statistical problem so I'm not going to do it.

For the other 50%, we get three sand attacks so accuracy is 40%, and so 20% of total probability we're limited to three. .6^4 or 12.96% chance to miss four in a row immediately.

30% probability left over, four sand attacks accuracy is 33%, so 10% total probability we're limited to four. .66^4 = about 19% chance to tap out immediately.

20% probability left over, five sand attacks accuracy is 28.6%, so 5.7% chance total probability we're limited to five. .714^4 = about 26% chance to win immediately.

Overall the chance to instantly win is .5*.0625 + .2*.1296 + .1*.19 + .057*.26 = 9.1% chance for Flygon to survive. The actual chance to win by forfeit is much much higher, since on average the enemy needs to attack 18 times to get 9 hits, and the chance to miss four in a row gets pretty likely at that point.

Still, I don't want to calculate the chance, so I don't want to count on it, and I'd also rather just cheat since the mechanics are broken to begin with.

Hmm, maybe we could've beaten Milotic with damage if we got enough Crunch defense downs to allow Attack moves to do more than 50%...

No. 140004 ID: 273c18

The Attack moves we had access to...
Flygon: Earthquake (needs one def down to do over 50%, but Flygon gets oneshot by Ice Beam so it wouldn't have worked unless we managed three stacks of it which would've been impossible without a lucky paralyze from a different 'mon or some sand attack, and the sand attacks would either be only one stack or Flygon risks getting KO'd.)
Torkoal: Body Slam needs three def down but the same issue of getting oneshot, by Surf
Pelipper: Fly is the best Attack move, but it can't be used twice in a row to try overcoming Recover, it must be combined with something else, and Secret Power is the only other good option, but that requires FIVE stacks of def down to kill from combining the two damage sources.
Glalie: Nothing! No attack moves at all, since in gen 3 all Dark moves are special.

So yeah that wouldn't have worked unless we got absurdly lucky. Getting one def down in 3 Crunches is about a 50% chance.
Also I recently realized that Torkoal couldn't use two body slams against Milotic after Sunny Day. Just one.

So basically once Sceptile was dead the only option we had was Sand Attack.

OH!!! I found a sneaky guaranteed win. Swap in Torkoal immediately when Milotic shows up to save Aggron, then use the free swap from Torkoal's KO to put in Flygon who uses Earthquake for less than 50% and does not provoke a potion(or a recover but it doesn't matter), then free swap in Aggron to use Brick Break for the rest of Milotic's hp.
No. 140005 ID: 273c18

This strat would have also worked with Sceptile in the place of Flygon, since Leaf Blade also does almost 50%.

my dear sweet myconid, i've missed you terribly, or i guess that's what i'd say if you were him. everyday i weep that i am separated by my greatest love. my biggest fan...one day i'll have to finish catalyst in the most egregious way just to get him to come back.

latios, latias, and deoxys are not currently your pals. any of them would have shoved stetson if they had been randomly selected to do so and latios was actively looking for an excuse to get rid of you in the most recent update.

if you had sought out latios and latias to befriend before the plan to catch deoxys, things would be different now. i think at one point someone had the idea to get latios or latias to volunteer to be caught by stetson, but in the end people went with the faster option of masterballing deoxys, thus the current animosity from those three.

No. 140810 ID: 273c18

You fucking jackass that's not what I was complaining about. Yes, Latios is not our friend.

You don't want us to get what we want, even though we're barely asking for anything.
No. 140811 ID: 273c18

Oh and I guess other people are going to be like "why are you so hostile" so let me spell it out:
Tippler is being patronizing, while sidestepping the issue I brought up.
No. 140812 ID: 273c18

You know, I kinda get why you're being like this. This is the last thread, so there should be some sort of significant closing moment like the resolution of a significant conflict, but there's no more plot threads left to tie up except for our disagreement with the legendaries. So from a writer's perspective it's a good idea to make that into the significant conflict, right? Not something that can be resolved easily?

Except, in the process of doing this you're casting the legendaries as bullies with basically no empathy at all for humans, and Latios is weirdly bad at mind-reading*** if that last update is supposed to be taken seriously and not the quest author version of "Nuh uh I throw up a forcefield so your attack doesn't work".
If they generally dislike humans then that would imply bad history with humans, which would imply they know humans are a THREAT. If they know that then they know escalating the situation (by, for instance, almost killing a child) is a terrible idea. The conflict doesn't make any rational sense, even disregarding the credit card thing.

***:(by only reading bits and pieces and assuming the worst instead of, you know, mind-reading a bit more to see if it's that bad... or not assuming the worst because after living so long and reading so many thoughts he would know that people don't act on all their thoughts and people generally want to do the right thing)
IMO psychic types should be generally friendly towards humans, because by being exposed to their unfiltered minds they would be able to see the clear parallels between the minds of humans and the minds of pokemon.
No. 140813 ID: 273c18

Oh right, I should probably ask this here too:
Is there a reason behind blocking all my attempts at fixing/preventing the PC glitch? I have brought up several methods of doing so and none of them were directly addressed in-quest aside from the last comment which was basically "it's not a perfect solution". The goal is to prevent what happened to Gengar from happening to other pokemon. That's it. I don't care about the implication of legendaries being entirely immune to the stasis, because it's clear that they can handle themselves.

I don't agree with pokemon being put in stasis but that is a SEPARATE ISSUE, do you understand?
No. 140815 ID: a7a180

The PC glitch is a nonissue as long as legendaries remain out of the PC box (which they strongly insist on) and no Pokemon are stored in adjacent slots to them. It's already solved. And that's aside from the fact that we already passed a decision gate months ago that put the kibosh to meddling with the PC system.

The decision gate revolved around whether or not to use the PC information to rebel against the humans, not whether to use the PC information at all. The latter case was proved possible when we were able to talk to Lanette about it.

Also, since there were no patches after Gengar's incident, that means the problem is not solved and could happen again.

Well I guess I don't know if legendaries got more aggressive about keeping eachother out of pokeballs after that...

Ok, I did a quick ctrl+f and found this post
but it's stated as a "theory". Do we have any confirmation of that detail?

I understand getting so invested you take things personally, but you gotta chill.

The reason Latios cherry picked thoughts was explained already: he was looking for an excuse to get mad and end the conversation, so of course he's going to use our suggesters' worst intrusive thoughts as an excuse. The answer isn't to get mad, it's to watch our wording and kibosh intrusive thoughts by voting them down. To use discipline as if we were dealing with a literal mind reader, which we are.

The choice was made to take the easy route with the Masterball a long time ago instead of trying to befriend Deoxys before catching him, in hypocrisy to the things we've claimed to be striving for. This is the consequences of our actions.

You might want to think about that a bit more. We're not trying to get trainers to befriend wild pokemon before capturing them, we're trying to get them to treat their captured pokemon better. We made zero effort to prevent Deoxys from being set free, and an attempt was made at getting them to socialize. That's in line with our stated goals.

Regarding the Vaporeon situation:

Well personally I think the main problem with this situation is we don't know exactly what the trainer is planning to do about Vaporeon. The fact that she did anything at all at least means she is at least willing to do something for the sake of appearances, which is probably the best we can do at the moment for the more stubborn trainers.
Secondly, mistreatment like this is happening all over the place. Attempting a direct personal intervention will mean we are likely to be seen as truly stepping outside the bounds of the law instead of just associating ourselves with pokemon that do. That reputation will make it much more difficult to do any of the social outreach or negotiation with human authorities, which means less overall prevention of mistreatment.
Even if talking to Flareon results in more bad news, within the bounds of the law all we can do is try to talk to her again, and she's the kind of person apparently who will complain about harassment to the authorities so that's a brick wall. That's my reasoning anyway. We will find more opportunities to engage directly with misbehaving trainers in the future; those who are earnestly willing to listen are the best case scenario.

i also thought it was in character, and the suggestion never used any specific character names so i had no way of knowing.

don't worry though, it could have a sizeable impact on Steven's impression of you and that's why i put it as an option in the most recent choice

pokemon quest should finish up in a week! im extremely excited. i have promised to finish this short vis novel game im working on (mc pictured) and then i'll start my next bigger quest series which will be as graphically violent as i can stomach

it'll have to follow the constraints of suiting the world/setting, so while it'll be gore for gore's sake it'll be within reason(?). at the very least there won't be any sexual violence or any sex at all.

short visual novel will be short, made in renpy, and have fairy waifus. i have like three themes in all media i create so it'll have those three themes. it is all ages but incidentally it's set in the same setting as edgy quest so it's been a good exercise in planning the magic system out a bit beforehand.

Did we miss out on some sort of really big plotline that would've furthered our goals?
No. 141226 ID: b6ec4d

I'm feeling the Q&A spirit, so here are some questions for ya:

What is your favorite Pokemon from a later gen that you would have liked an excuse to draw if not for the gen 3 cap?

Who was personally your favorite 'mon to write for?

Do you think the Friendlies get up to anything else interesting down the line? Maybe some grand heists or other big plays to try and change society?

Do you ever wish the audience had picked a different Pokemon for the protagonist to become, or were there any you are incredibly happy not to have been stuck with?

If we were doing Nuzlock rules and you HAD to nickname all your Pokemon, what would you go with? (You can just stick to the most important ones, say Flygon, Smeargle, and Gengar)?

from nostalgia, definitely vaporeon by default. i spent a unmerited amount of time thinking about what submissive constitutes outside of an intimate relationship or a bdsm setting but she still counts as submissive because she does what vania says.

do that mean all captured pokemon are submissive? do we live in a society? i cannot answer these questions.

For the peaceful route naw, I didn't think of anything super different outside of the ideas brainstormed by the suggestors.

>Favorite poke from later gens
Chi-yu from scarlet violet because pretty fish and also a very good mon.

>favorite mon to write
Gengar. i like large fruity bastards in fiction

>Do the friendlies get up to anything interesting after the end of the quest?
they keep doing their usual rescue team activities. the members you recruited for the school would help with that

>do i wish flygon had been a different pokemon?
that evolutionary line is about on the cusp of being a little too complicated for my liking since i am very lazy. otherwise i didn't have any problems with it.

>pokemon nicknames off the top of my head
Flygon: Golf
Smeargle: Brush
Gengar: Big Momma

>violent revolution, what would it have been like?
here was my vague gameplan:

1. tell friendlies about the PC glitch

2. recruit a legendary out of deoxys latios or latias

3. decide how to make your demands whether by holding lanette hostage or storing a legendary to mess up the pc, or something else

4. shit hits the fan and the league, scott, and steven tell tracy to put smeargle in her ball, stetson to put you in your ball, and/or catch your friends to hold counter hostage.

5. ???

6. you come out on top because you have the numbers advantage and superpowers, but at varying levels of cost

it was alluded to in the first thread that pokemon can actually get permanently injured and die if they keep getting hit after they've fainted, so death was on the table.

humans could also be killed by getting out of badge range and dropping a sufficiently deadly object, say, a rock, on them. i doubt people would have been into that though

if you read back a couple tippler messages i mention i am working on a short VN game with fairy waifus and also creatures that occupies the same setting as next quest, which will be grimdark edge and will start once i finish game.

i only have 3 scenes left of game write and i have all the logic figured so hopefully i can bang it out in ren py pretty quick and get it playtested by an unlucky patron and ready on itch by next tuesday

for the pacifist route you could have gotten another minor legal concession if you hadn't tried to resolve the vania vaporeon situation, which is a short term/long term hand off since none of the long term impact of the legal stuff can really be shown in quest.

honestly from my point of view it was pretty ideal, being friends with unethical rich people like scott is worth it because money and helping vaporeon was a good thing to do because preventing exploitation.

the quest is over and it's up to you to interpret what would happen to flygon and his work for pokemon rights years in the future based on the info in the quest.

sadly no, the events occurring in quest have little to do with
rural forest fairy politics. only character with overlap is mysterious red guy on horse. thanks for playing the game!
