Re: Help with Timer for Mudkip

that guide is fairly outdated. we choose girl every time now, and probably would not take any of those kips. exarion has written some more updated notes: http://pastebin.com/FqTms93u

Re: Moving Forward With RTA: Timing Methods

i haven't really participated in the discussion much til now, but i think sapphire is a bit unique in some respects so i'll give my two cents. while the main consideration in an rta shift would and should be accuracy and consistency of timing, i think we ought to bear in mind how certain timing cuto...

Re: What's new in saf

want to share my updated shopping to see what people think: http://pastebin.com/qVbDPfUA this comes because a) it needed ironed out for a while now, and b) i noticed that the primary advantage to early candy (L30 for vig = OHKO on any atk) was still obtainable without early candy on higher atk (30-3...

Re: What's new in saf

i've shared this with most of the other runners, but figured i might as well keep up with this thread too. here is a video showing what i think should now be the standard tnl strat. it doesn't make hasty strats obsolete, but definitely improves the odds for the standard non-hasty kip. in the past ou...

just want this known for all future races/marathons LOL https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=rJ6HVcldmR0 this is the earliest "cluster" i found so it's the one i tested most. the order of encounters (starting somewhere around 14-15s from soft reset) seems to be approximately this: L8 abra male (bold) L10...

Re: sapphire rng manipulation guide

about "variance": in practicing this form of rng manipulation, many runners have experienced what mountebank called "variance" where they get a kip with stats that seem to correspond to no candidates near the mudkip they were aiming for, despite knowing that their timing was not that far off. he sai...

Re: What's new in saf

Re: What's new in saf

just wanted to update this thread for the future reference of those who may come after me. with what we currently know about the game and the current best strats at our disposal to face that, i believe the following is the kip to rule all kips: 15823 | Hasty 17/28/29/30/7/26 it is unique for a few r...

Re: What's new in saf

i guess i should have been more thorough :P my point about 9829 is that it's essentially 10602 but better. but yeah i mean, either of the hp fighting kips is still equally competitive right now. i actually prefer hasty overall because it's safer on wattson and brooke. but i think it's going to come ...

Re: What's new in saf

fair point about hp fighting, if it's true that they ohko sharpedo at +1. as far as money goes, in my run yesterday, i had enough for 10 x specials, and that's with buying an extra repel in slateport bc i had early flyer. of course a slower kip would need to buy more x speeds as well (7 instead of 6...

Re: Possible gen3 frame searching program thing.

the tweet says "there were a few spots where the order of a pokemon's 2 characteristics were wrong, so i fixed it" thinking that refers to the characteristic that determines which of two abilities a pokemon has if its species can have one of two. the last i saw buster running (sapphire at least), he...

Re: What's new in saf

ran into a bit of a challenge today while testing some of this stuff. i did two runs back to back with 810 | Hasty 27/31/7/25/18/26 to test the +speed strats i've been working on. in both runs, i fought timmy and took carbos, which gives 12 extra speed EVs (zigzagoon (1) + electrike (1) + carbos (10...

Re: What's new in saf

good point pirate. i've edited the rival 2/tnl paste to reflect that. turns out 34 is the magic number not just to outspeed magnemite, but to outspeed voltorb at +1, which is pretty cool. so i'm thinking 25+IV+ speed should do the strats i outlined in order to skip x speed on rival 2, then use that ...

Re: What's new in saf

updated a few more things just now. most importantly i found out that you actually can't use early candy AFTER battle girl laura--you have to be L28 before fighting her or you'll be 114 exp short of L30 for vig. so rip late-early candy strats. additionally i added the exp count to L30 for vig withou...

revised desert candy notes: http://pastebin.com/pND1q0pP got rid of the discussion on spinners due to the fact that you only need 189 exp. also am now less ecstatic about its previously seemingly myriad uses--at least for the HP fighting kips--for the following reasons: - 10602 already ohko's machop...

quick note, i fucked up a lot of the numbers big time (can't really tell why, but it doesn't matter), so i'm writing up a new paste to reflect the actual math. main fuckup is that you're not short 684 exp for L27 off torkoal, you're actually only 189 short. obviously this changes a lot. and @piratel...
