Even more powerful than E=mc2

All throughout your educational career, you are given formulas for solving almost any problem. None of those formulas have had quite as large an impact as these two have. Not even the quadratic formula.

These are arguably the most influential formulas on my entire life.

Catch Rate Formula

Shake formula

They are the formulas for determining whether or not you capture a wild Pokémon.

I’ve spent LITERAL MONTHS playing these games and never once stopped to think how the game came to the conclusion that I have successfully captured a Pokémon. How did GameFreak even come to settle with this model?

Just shows how much is never seen or appreciated.

To be honest, I still think it correlates to how quickly I smash the “A” Button.
