Right. so lets remove ALL the luck/RNG from the game. what would that do.

well confusion is a coin flip. so lets remove that
Paralasis is a coin flip on being able to move. so we'll get rid of that as well.
Sleep? dont get me started. Off with it.
now lets see. moves that have a increased crit chance? nope. cant have that. Chance on Status effect moves? nope get rid off em.
Metronome? well not really a competetive move. but its a RNG move all the way. Away with it.
Dragon tail. whirlwind? they force a Random poke out. so must be removed.


right. so now we filtered out about 60-70% of the moves. lets go to abilities.

in fact. why not remove ALL abilities. as some block crits. some remove status effects. some randomly increase things. better to remove them all for balance.

Now once you finished this. tell me.... Wont the game be boring that way?


Don't forget min-max damage.

ah yes my bad. and double-team/sand attack. evasion and lowered accuracy shouldnt be allowed... and while we're at it. all moves have a 100% hit rate now. enjoy games of sheer cold/guilotine =)

you either do it right and remove all RNG chances. or you dont do it at all. no exceptions.

Stop crying about luck in a luck based game. It really makes you look like a deplorable person.

Pokemon is game of strategy and luck, you know, some trainer is lucky enough that their Hypnosis or Focus Blast hits consecutively while your pokemon's play rough or heat wave miss in tight situation, the truth is, without RNG, pokemon is just another DQM.....
