Pokemon Scarlet and Violet’s online multiplayer RNG may be rigged
Pokemon Scarlet and Violet Players claim that the online multiplayer RNG for trains appears to be rigged. The Battle Stadium feature, which allows players to engage in both casual and ranked battles, seems to be the flawed culprit.
Move Accuracy RNG is fundamentally rigged, they say
Recently raised about Twitter post by user Anubis (@Sibuna_Switch) along with accompanying video evidence, the claims appear to have serious substance. It is claimed that the random calculations reserved for movements and their accuracy are not random at all.
This issue appears to only affect the Battle Stadium feature of the online in-game service Poke Portal. That said, the casual and ranked battles often used by the more serious VGC level fighters in Pokemon seem broken. Further evidence was posted by user Lord-Trolldemort in r/VGC on Reddit, detailing the results and the dismay at the RNG being set the same in every fight.
Online battles can now be predicted
Creator @hopcatsmash explains further in a TikTok video, noting the potentially huge embarrassment that could prove to be for the online Pokemon VGC community. This example was given: “In the first round of a game, if you use a move that is less than 91% accurate, it always goes wrong.”
This level of predictability breaks the online battle experience, as the entire fundamental foundation of Pokémon battles has always focused on the nature of the random chance of your own moves hitting your opponent.
It is very likely that this will be abused by trolls, bad actors or gamers who just want an easy win.
Hopefully Game Freak can address the potentially harmful issue and maybe release some sort of patch soon.
Unfortunately, these claims come after waves of fan disappointment over Pokemon Scarlet and Violet’s performance issues.
