I don't think you even know what binary is. What you listed was just select numbers which (with the exception of 1, 2 and 4) are used for certain types of memory allocation.


with the exception of 1, 2 and 4?

I don't think you know what a very basic exponential sequence with basis 2 is

as in

a_n = 2^n with n being a natural number including zero


Actually I do, it's just that I was thinking too strict when I wrote that. Memory in computer systems has usually been allocated at multiples of 8, supposedly due to the way they work.

'8 bits to a byte'


It's true that there are eight bits in a byte, but that's not what binary means. Binary is simply a base-2 number system, as opposed to the base-10 system we typically use. Each digit represents a power of two. So the binary number

11010110

Represents 2 + 4 + 16 + 64 + 128 = 214. Sums of powers of two - which is what TC was doing.

Meh, Walrein and Venonat

Didn't add X and Y because I can't make my decision just yet, they might have exclusive areas and what not.

I know that as well, again "I was thinking too strict when I wrote that".

Loosely speaking it's a decent way of idiot-proofing the concept. Though why anyone would not understand such basic math to require such support is beyond comprehension.

However strictly speaking, calling it binary is still not completely correct. But, going on about minor details like this will only pad the topic with irrelevant discussion.

Electrike and Scizor. I'll release/trade the Electrike.

according to your test
1)480 Uxie
2)472 Gliscor

my tendency to buy both versions boosted my score...(Interesting as I didn't beat the E-4 in 3 games I own yet... yay unnecessary level grinding!

Also this isn't binary... binary means 2 Thus binary code only uses 0 and 1
