Hey guys, just posting here to let you know that the B/W Damage Formula article has been posted at Smogon. The whole thread submission phase took less than a day so not many people got wind of it before it was uploaded. Here's the article. The Pokecheck.org team is working on an upcoming feature relating to battling, and we discovered (through debugging) that the D/P methodology of calculating damage wasn't matching up with predictions based on the Battle RNG. We then had the entire "damage" portion of the battle code debugged and then made it into a very technical but still readable article for Smogon. We've included the multiplication factors for each special case, as simple 1.x decimal multipliers are not how the game does it. If you have questions about the damage formula / article feel free to ask, either here or at #smogonwifi @ synirc.
