Weird &Wonderful random maths fact πŸ‘€ Pokemon is packed full of maths!

Pokemon is a popular battle game played by so many – but do you realise how much maths it uses?? πŸ€”

When one Pokemon defeats another in battle, they gain experience points. Once enough experience points have been gained, the Pokemon’s level increases, which in turn makes the Pokemon stronger, faster and harder to knock out πŸ‘ŠπŸΌ. Equations are used to decide how many experience points a Pokemon needs to advance to the next level. There are different equations for different Pokemon, making some easier to raise than others. Furthermore, there is a formula that decides how many experience points a Pokemon gains when it wins a fight. This equation depends on the level of the opponent, as well as the species of the opponent Pokemon.

There are many other complicated equations involved in this game, including the equation that decides how much damage an attack does (based on the attack strength, opponent defence strength, move power, types of Pokemon and even a bit of luck πŸ€)

Probability also appears in many aspects of the game, including the chance of an attack successfully hitting 🎯, the chance of encountering a specific Pokemon in the wild (stronger or more rare pokemon have a smaller chance of being encountered) and the chance of a wild Pokemon successfully being caught.

So if you fancy a job designing video games for a company such as Nintendo, a strong understanding of algebra and probability is very important! πŸ‘©πŸΌβ€πŸ’»πŸ‘¨πŸ½β€πŸ’»
