Cram-o-matic

The Cram-o-matic

The Cram-o-matic (Japanese: ウッウロボ Uurobo) is a robot resembling a Cramorant located in Mustard's room in the Master Dojo on the Isle of Armor. Made by Mustard's son Hyde, it can be fed four items to create a new item. It can be used at any time after the player has given Hyde 500 Watts to make it operational. The game must be saved before each use.

In the games

Recipes

The items that the Cram-o-matic produces are based on the permutation of four items fed into it (meaning that changing the order in which the items are fed can affect the outcome).[1] The Cram-o-matic only accepts items from the Treasures, Berries, and Other Items Pockets. Some recipes have guaranteed outputs, and other recipes will randomly output from a pool of items. Hyde will also give certain recipes to the player in exchange for 100 Watts.

Poké Ball recipes

Poké Balls can be made by feeding in four Apricorns. The Poké Ball that comes out of the Cram-o-matic is random, with weighted probabilities based on the color combination of the Apricorns. The Cram-o-matic also has about a 1% chance of producing five Poké Balls instead of one. For Poké Ball recipes only, the order of the inputted items does not affect the output.

The following table shows the approximate Poké Ball distributions for feeding in four Apricorns of the same color. If multiple colors are used, then the probabilities are split proportionally; for instance, a combination of two Black Apricorns and two White Apricorns will have a 0.5% chance of producing a Heavy Ball and a 0.5% chance of producing a Fast Ball.

Standard recipes

Standard recipes are calculated using a type- and value-based system. Each input item is assigned a type and value; the output is based on the type of the first item and the sum of all four items' values. The order of the last three items do not affect the output. Recipes for Sweets produce one of the listed Sweets at random, with Strawberry Sweet as the most common outcome for both recipes.

Main article: Cram-o-matic (Fusion Strike 229)

Cram-o-matic was introduced as an Item card in the Pokémon Trading Card Game during the English Sword & Shield Series (the Japanese Sword & Shield Era). It was first released in the Japanese S-P Promotional cards before debuting in English in the Fusion Strike expansion, with an illustration by Ryo Ueda. Once the player discards an Item card from their hand, it allows them to flip a coin and if heads, search their deck for a card and put it into their hand, then shuffle their deck.

Trivia

  • The Cram-o-matic is the only legitimate method to obtain Safari Balls outside of Safari Zones or Sport Balls outside of the Bug-Catching Contest.
    • It's also the only legitimate method to keep them permanently as inventory items.
    • It's also the only legitimate method to obtain more than one Amulet Coin per game without trading.
  • Given the 295 known unique items that can be used in Cram-o-matic recipes, there are:
    • 210 unique Poké Ball recipes (order does not matter).
    • 3,245 unique special recipes (order matters).
    • 1,275,089,701 unique standard recipes (order does not matter for last three items).
