Pokebattle

So this is a Pokemon battle game I made a while back. There's also an even older simpler Pokemon battle game I made which I did not obsess over every detail about, and a one level mario game which is mostly a music project. I cheated, I used their drag and drop the algorithmic blocks program to make it.

Not bad! Hypno is kind of ridiculously overpowered, though; Hypnosis -> Dream Eater -> Dream Eater -> Trick Room -> Psychic destroyed everything. Also, the cats seemed to have some glitches in their attacks; Suicune's mirror coat didn't work, and when Entei woke up it had to recharge for some reason. The animations were kind of slow and lengthy, but the one for dream eater was pretty cool.

I've never actually played a Scratch game before. How long did it take you to make this one?

Hm, mirror coat didn't work? It always does for me. Maybe your attack missed? And yeah, I think I might have seen that Entei recharge glitch before and thought I fixed it. I think what's happening is Entei is using Giga Impact the move before it wakes up, so it recharges the next turn. I would have fixed this stuff before when I first put this up but I don't think I'll bother now.

Ridiculously long. I used the actual damage formula, made different animations for misses and critical hits, created different sprites for different moves and situations like being asleep, etc. I wouldn't be surprised if I spent 20 hours or more of my life on this, but a lot of it was figuring out how to get things to work.

Nah, it hit. Also, mirror coat was acting like it had +priority, so the animation would go off before I attacked, even though I was faster with trick room. It should be -priority.

I wasn't aware that attacks could miss. :P All my hypnoses hit.

Okay, so not very long at all. :P Cool!

Out of curiosity, do you remember which move you used when it didn't work?(edit: wait nevermind you said trick room so it must have been psychic. still strange.) And yeah, I changed the priority on mirror coat because I thought it wouldn't really make sense for a move to be reflected back after it has already passed. If you use thunder when Suicune uses mirror coat it actually shows a second thunder reflecting back at the same time. Makes Suicune more powerful anyway.

Lucky! All the moves are set to their actual accuracy (including thunder in a rainstorm).

chah, dude
I was trying to switch out Hypno versus Suicune, then realized Charizard wouldn't do much better. When I went to "Back" it recalled Hypno, then sent it back out XD

I like it though

Uh, I didn't do it.
Too loud? Sorry. (There is a button on your computer for these situations however :P)

Yeah it was one of those moments when you click on a link, aren't quite expecting music, then LOUDNESS and you try to turn it down but for some reason your computer isn't responding, so LOUDNESS continues.

It got better.

Yeah, I thought of doing a new one that's a double battle with Hoenn legendaries or something. And I am due for another game project :P But I'm kind of past the scratch thing now that I'm fluent in Java. I could make another Pokemon project, but this kind of power makes me want to make my own original game :P

EDIT and Luxicario, if you have either flash or java installed you don't need to download it unless you want to look at the code, and to do that you need to install Scratch... If flash isn't working click the button on the right that says "Click here to switch back to the Java player".

EDIT2 I totally just bumped my own thread. Didn't notice the two new replies were over a month ago :P whoops
