Currently they go up by increments of 10, which isn't correct, and as such, these moves are completely un-useable
for instance, a move like agility (+2 speed) raises the stat by 20 points, which makes it un-useable.
In reality (poke games), every +1 is equal to an increase of 50% of the pokemons stat.
for instance, alakazam with 100 sp.attk uses calm mind (+1 sp.attk/sp.def), its sp.attk is now 150, or if +2 (nasty plot) would have raised it by 100%, and so on.
This only applies to increases and can happen a maximum of 6 times. The written stat is what is used in this multiplier, so an alakazam with 100 (written) sp.attk, maxes at 400 (unwritten) sp.attk.
In other words: W= written stat, X= increase, Y=Final X can equal (.5 (or +1)), (1 (or +2)),( 1.5 (or +3)),( 2(or +4)),(2.5 (or +5)),(3 (or +6))
The equation= WX + X = Y
Decreases in Stats require a little more math, as the interval in which the Percentage decreases is divided by 2 the second time and then applied, then rounded.
The initial decrease is 33.3%, so, from 100% (or the written number), the stat now goes down to 66.7% of its original (-1), then if this were to happen again, the decrease is halved (33.3/2)=16.65, 16.7 (rounded) is then taken from the 66.7, leaving 50% (-2), then the number does not split again, subtracting 16.7% once again from the now 50% of the written stat, we now have 33.3% of the written (-3), If decreased again we subtract halve of the last interval (16.7/2)=8.35, so 8.3% is subtracted from 33.3%, making the new unwritten 25% of the written stat (-4), this occurs again with a decrease of 8.3 again if lowered again, making the unwritten 16.7% of the written(-5), and finally, the last decrease is a decrease halve of the prior decrease (8.3/2)= 4.15, as such 4.2% is subtracted from 16.7%, making the unwritten stat of the formerly opposing pokemon, only 12.6% of its written stat.
for instance: Dugtrio used growl (2 times) on Dragonite (base 134 so ill use 134 attk), 134 x .333 (or 33.3% of 134) = 44.62 (45 (whole number)), so 134-45
the dragonite now has 89 attk this is (-1), which is unwritten of course, then a decrease again, relating to 16.7% of written, therefore the decrease of dragonites strength is decreased by (134x.167), or 22.378, or 22, so 22 points are deducted from the 89 unwritten, making the new unwritten attack 67, or 50% of the written, 134/2= 67. This can continue on a total of 6 times or -6, with dragonite finishing with a minimum of 16.884, (or 17 unwritten attack power)
in other words: W= Written N= last used interval (initially 0) D= % interval X= unwritten Y= Final
Brain too fried to come up with equation, just.....try it.
