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 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). 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.
The following recipes have guaranteed outcomes that override standard recipe patterns. Generally, they require the same, specific item in the first, third, and fourth slots and any item in the second slot.
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.
