NPC battle, opponents ability isn't working.
Jinji said:Right, I'm not keeping posts I believe are not entirely factually accurate; nor am I keeping responses I feel are of an incendiary nature. As I stated in my very first post, this Change Log is meant for my updates and serious discussion of said work ONLY. Take those matters elsewhere.
Back on topic - the answer to your question is no Sabo, at least not at this present time. Currently PWO's server and database structure does not support us giving Pokémon more than one ability. An agreement was made many years ago that the ability given to each Pokémon in PWO would be the first ability known to that Pokémon in official games as of the most recently agreed Generation, currently Generation 5; and as such Dragonite was updated to follow this standard. We are aware a number of other Pokémon are breaking this rule as well and it is my intention to update these over time as I work to implement missing abilities.
Now, it IS fully possible that with server enhancements; added data for each Pokémon in the DB; and perhaps a small amount of client-side support for making the decision on what encountered wild Pokémon will use as their ability (though a server-side solution likely exists here too and it may come down to which is more efficient), we can fully implement Pokémon having a choice of ability in future. This is not at the moment a priority, but will likely become one once the Ability code as a whole is in a much more stable position.
Seems people are reporting battle bugs here, so I got a funny one for you =)
My arca killed the venusaur, and the other player sent in Altaria. So I hit it with outrage, he hits me with his att, the altaria faints because its hurt by poison
Also some time ago, and of this I do not have SS, but I'm sure you can recreate it, I was battling in PvP, and my Tyra was fainted after being hit by future sight, a psyhic attack XD. And also my weezing was fainted by fissure, a ground move. =P
Please take a look to these.
Merry Christmas to all!!!
Well then Jinji [aka the gengar] will take a look at the moves you mentioned and let you know if anything's wrong.joaquim-das-tostas said:Dont think it was from previous battle, Im pretty sure the guy went to pc before we battle, and all his pokes were full HP =)
And then, there's the other cases I mentioned =P Who's the gengar?!
