New Spearow DSUM Charts

The old spearow dsum chart for yellow is not great. Here are several new charts that account for differences in encounter length from having nidorino and all sorts of other things. I recommend using charts labeled "most spearows" as 14 steps is usually enough to generate an encounter (more than 68% chance to generate an encounter in 14 steps on this route).

Step Based Results

Most Spearows
L9 Mankey 30 out 14 in, cycle 33/14
L8 Sandshrew 18 out 17 in, cycle 30/17
L10 Rattata 13 out 17 in, cycle 30/17
L10 Sandshrew 9 out 19 in, cycle 28/19
L12 Rattata 7 out 19 in, cycle 28/19

Most Encounters
L9 Mankey 23 out 28 in, cycle 19/28
L8 Sandshrew 14 out 25 in, cycle 22/25
L10 Rattata 9 out 25 in, cycle 22/25
L10 Sandshrew 7 out 23 in, cycle 24/23
L12 Rattata 5 out 23 in, cycle 24/23

Middle Ground
L9 Mankey 26 out 21 in, cycle 26/21
L8 Sandshrew 16 out 21 in, cycle 26/21
L10 Rattata 11 out 21 in, cycle 26/21
L10 Sandshrew 8 out 21 in, cycle 26/21
L12 Rattata 6 out 21 in, cycle 26/21

Time (Seconds) Based Results

Most Spearows
L9 Mankey 9 out 4 in, cycle 9/4
L8 Sandshrew 5.5 out 5 in, cycle 8/5
L10 Rattata 4 out 5 in, cycle 8/5
L10 Sandshrew 3 out 5 in, cycle 8/5
L12 Rattata 2 out 5 in, cycle 8/5

Most Encounters
L9 Mankey 7 out 8 in, cycle 5/8
L8 Sandshrew 4 out 7 in, cycle 6/7
L10 Rattata 3 out 7 in, cycle 6/7
L10 Sandshrew 2 out 7 in, cycle 6/7
L12 Rattata 1.5 out 7 in, cycle 6/7

Middle Ground (this is the chart most comparable to the old one in terms of strategy)
L9 Mankey 8 out 6 in, cycle 7/6
L8 Sandshrew 5 out 6 in, cycle 7/6
L10 Rattata 3.5 out 6 in, cycle 7/6
L10 Sandshrew 2.5 out 6 in, cycle 7/6
L12 Rattata 2 out 6 in, cycle 7/6

Attempt-Oriented Searches
In order to maximize the chance of a successful DSUM during an attempt, some accuracy of the search window could be sacrificed to increase the number of encounter checks performed. However, by my calculations the decrease in accuracy outweighs the benefit from extra steps for searching. So for attempts the "most spearows" chart is identical.

For Attempts

Step Based
L9 Mankey 30 out 14 in, cycle 33/14
L8 Sandshrew 18 out 17 in, cycle 30/17
L10 Rattata 13 out 17 in, cycle 30/17
L10 Sandshrew 9 out 19 in, cycle 28/19
L12 Rattata 7 out 19 in, cycle 28/19

Time (Seconds) Based
L9 Mankey 9 out 4 in, cycle 9/4
L8 Sandshrew 5.5 out 5 in, cycle 8/5
L10 Rattata 4 out 5 in, cycle 8/5
L10 Sandshrew 3 out 5 in, cycle 8/5
L12 Rattata 2 out 5 in, cycle 8/5
