I'm on Battle 33 in the Battle Maison with a team of MegaMawile, Gyarados, and Goodra when I come across an Eeveelution trainer. Their Vaporeon ends up freezing my Goodra, who ends up not being able to move for 13 straight turns. Count them. From turn 12 to turn 25, Goodra is stuck in ice.

Now, the chances of a Pokemon thawing out from Frozen status are 25%. Since Goodra was frozen for 13 turns...

(1/5)^13 = 8.19e-10 = .000000000819%

Were my chances of possibly thawing out at that point. Damn.

What moveset does your Goodra run?

25% = 1/4. Not 1/5. But still extremely unlikely and unfortunate.

It doesn't quite work like that. Every turn it does a check to see if you unfreeze. In that check you have a 25% chance to unfreeze.

It's not really a multiplicative thing. Being frozen longer doesn't make your chances worse for thawing out.

Ahhh, I meant 20%, not 25%.

That's what you get for using Goodra.

Kinda like when I was fighting the Elite 4. My Lapras had Ice Beam freeze every single Pokémon that Drasna sent out. At one point (against Druddigon), it went Ice Beam (freeze), Full Restore, Ice Beam (freeze), Full Restore, Ice Beam (freeze)...it ended when IB crit. What are the odds of having multiple freezes like that (froze Dragalge, Druddigon multiple times, and Noivern)?
My great weakness is the love I have for the fair sex, and pretty much all my trouble comes from or can be traced to that charming source.

I'm sorry for not using the cheap Entrainment Durant.

This is one of the reasons I don't particularly care about Battle Maison records. All the game does is simply chest enormously when it thinks you've gone too far.
