    GCEA Sinnoh Battle Calculator

    @Rival Max @Brettles @Noblejanobii @AWA1997 @Shruikan @evanfardreamer @Pokemon Trainer Sarah @Suicune's Fire @Everyone who is playing GCEA Sinnoh

    So, with Sinnoh starting in just over two days, I feel like it is appropriate to give you this.

    This is a calculator for battling that I designed a few months back.

    The reason for this is that we are going back to the GCEA Hoenn system of battling (as opposed to Kanto, which most of you are used to). The difference between these two systems is the bonuses. In Kanto, the bonuses were fixed. No matter which Pokemon you were battling against, if you had an evolution or type advantage, you would get a fixed bonus. Hoenn, the system that was designed before that, was variable. The bonus was dependent on the current hitpoints of the disadvantaged Pokemon. Whilst this made it somewhat more complicated, it also introduced a degree of skill, learning how to use choose which Pokemon and when to use them to get the best possible outcome (I won't spoil this now, but might divulge this later).

    Basically, when we were talking about doing Sinnoh, I made it clear that I was not for the Kanto battling system, and designed the calculator allowing us to do Hoenn without people tearing their hair out trying to figure out why the hell the bonuses aren't correct.

    So here is the calculator. Some things to be aware of:
    1. You will find that you can't edit this document, making it unusable. That is intentional. You will be required to click File> Make a Copy, that way you can use this calculator without affecting the master copy.
    2. Whilst this calculator is pretty accurate, it was made by a human (me) to do the sums the way I do them. There may be a couple of errors on my end which may cause certain scenarios to not work (for example, if the calculators database has a Pokemon's name spelt wrong, it won't recognize that Pokemon). If you come across anything like this, or anything that doesn't seem to make sense, please follow the troubleshooting I will write up after this, and if it is still there, PM it to me. I will endeavor to fix it as soon as I can.
    3. The unfortunate reality of fixing these mistakes is that for the mistakes to be fixed on individual copies of the calculator, updated versions will need to be downloaded. When I update it, and it is ready, I will tag everyone in a post, and they can download the updated version.
    4. Pokemon names need to be spelt correctly for the Calculator to work. I will provide a list of names for Pokemon with multiple forms that the calculator should accept.
    5. ONLY FILL IN THE WHITE CELLS. THE BLACK CELLS CONTAIN CODE TO DO CALCULATIONS AND CHANGING THESE WILL RENDER THE CALCULATOR USELESS AND REQUIRE YOU TO MAKE ANOTHER COPY.


    The current version of the GCEA Battle Calculator is V1.3!

    Appendix 1: Troubleshooting
    1. Are both Pokemon's names spelled correctly? Refer to Appendix 2 for more complicated names.
    2. Is there a space after either Pokemon's name? If there is, it will throw the calculator.
    3. Is there a space after either Pokemon's points? If there is, it will throw the calculator.
    4. Is your Calculator up to date as per the first post of this thread?
    5. Delete your copy and download a new one from the link above, and make sure that no cells are changed other than the ones necessary for the calculator operation. This establishes that there hasn't been an accidental change of the formulas.

    If there are still problems after all of these, please PM me with details and I will endeavor to fix it.

    V1.2 Release Notes
    New version can be found in the first post. This is a major update so it is imperative that you delete your old copy and create a new one from the link above.

    Changelog
    >Addressed miscalculation in bonus field on main page. Now calculates correctly.
    >Removed glitch where a Pokemon beginning a battle on less than 5 points was boosted to five points after the first bonus was calculated.
    >Fixed mistake where the wrong cell was referenced, causing Pokemon 1 gaining shadow typing to cause Pokemon 2 to lose its secondary typing and Pokemon 2 becoming a shadow type would retain its shadow typing.
    >Added Necrozma variants

    All of this is very specific stuff, with the only one that would have been a problem in the near future being the first, however it presented a huge problem, hence the need for an update so soon. Hopefully soon there will be no glitches and any updates will be for ease of use (y)

    So yeah, make sure to download the new version!
