Are you from Smogon TC?

By the way, 70% skill, 30 luck.


What if I am?


Nothing, was asking just because I've seen that name a couple of times on Smogon.

Luck is involved in anything. Pokemon, Sports, Formula 1, etc.

Yet, I still believe itīs based on skill. Much like your car could randomly blow up during a race, you could get lucky or unlucky in a match.Yet, itīs skill and prediction that will win you 98% of your games.

just saying, car usually don't randomly blow up during a race -_- If a car blew up, there was an issue with the car >_< Also, I don't really think Sports is too luck based either >_<

There's more to skill than battling. Skill includes move coverage, types of pokemon, use of abilities, use of items, and allocation of evs. A lot of the battle takes place before the actual battle begins.

Inside the battle, skill includes choice of moves, prediction, lead pokemon, and tactics.

Luck is more involved when you do things like rely on crits, double team, ohko, evasion increasing moves (like Moody). There's always a little bit of luck in non 100% accurate moves, but it's small enough to not matter, usually.

Stone Edge and Focus Blast are usually game changing, whether it hits or miss.

I wouldn't say "it's small enough to not matter".
