Pseudorandom number generation in Pokémon

6 bytes added, 18:05, 6 October 2011
In the Pokémon fandom, RNG abuse is slightly controversial. Proponents note that RNG abuse does not require a third-party device and that RNG abused Pokémon can be obtained through normal gameplay. In addition, RNG abused Pokémon have been used at the [[Pokémon_Organized_Play_(TCG)#Video_Game_Championships|Video Game Championships]], an official tournament. However, some players believe that RNG abuse is cheating, as the action of picking a Pokémon's characteristics is similar to using a program like Pokésav.
