Hidden Grotto Eevee

#1sonicths1fanPosted 10/19/2012 7:59:35 PM
I need this to be checked:
The odds of a hidden grotto regenerating is 5% (.05). The odds it's a pokemon are 20% (.2). The odds it's an eevee are 20% (.2). And the odds it's female are 30% (.3). So that would be: .05 x .2 x .2 x .3 = .0006. Now take that and divide it by 20 (the amount of hidden grottos in the game) and you get .012 (1.2% chance of finding a female eevee in a hidden grotto). Is this math correct?

I'm pretty sure the entire claim is bogus. It's not in any of the regular encounter slots for Hidden Grottoes, and if it were in a Funfest mission it would be known. It's most likely the result of the faulty first release of a 1 step = run the check for Hidden Grottoes.

I would be glad to be proven wrong but pics or it didn't happen. And give as many details as to what you've been doing like Funfest missions, story progress, etc.

Not really, it doesn't have to be in the encounter slots for any particular grotto, as it is a special occurrence. Granted, this may come off as a "serebii said so, it must be true!" kind of statement, but I doubt he(?)'d make an error that big.

It's pretty easy to make a mistake when you're in a rush to be the first to get information. Especially when one person posts a pic of something. But like I said I know the guy who made the code for Hidden Grotto generation and he said the first one was faulty. The Eevee could have been the result of that code. Which is why I would like to see a pic of one there in an English game.

I call BS, I doubt you know the person who coded the Hidden Grottoes.

Well in theory if you can find eevee there is my math correct?

Another thing by "regenerate" does that mean if there is something in the grotto it could change or does there have to be nothing in the grotto for it to regenerate?

lrn2read. Considering that I was talking about a faulty AR code it should be fairly obvious that I'm talking about that.

Your wording in no way suggested Action Replay codes. Be more specific in your wording next time.

It was due to a Funfest Mission, which has since been announced for Japan. My apologies for any confusion.

Hilarious that a certain other site duplicated that, but has now removed it :p

Added rarities here btw: http://www.serebii.net/black2white2/hiddengrotto.shtml

The odds of an Eevee being female are 12.5%, not 30%
