I think what most people are mistaking this for is the fact that only about 10% of your neurons are firing at any given time, which is what I thought when I first saw that quote, at any rate.
However, that does not mean that 100% of your neurons aren't used eventually.
In fact, according to a friend of mine, if 100% of your neurons are firing all at the same time, it actually means you're having a seizure.
First it was my Sazandra who had higher Attack than Special Attack. Now, my Volcarona actually has around equal Defense and Special Defense, thanks to a nature that lowers Sp.Def and increases speed. (At level 60, it's only 10 lower.)
Next thing you know, I'm going to get an Onix with higher Special Defense than Defense. >_>
When the SAT uses the United States national debt as an example of scientific notation, you know you have a problem.
True story - it happened last year when I took them.
Just another thought I had.
We all know how there are certain very cheap movesets which were design oversights on the part of the game designers (such as the F.E.A.R. combo), as well as a few things that don't make a lot of sense (such as recoil damage being reduced on a weak hit... or is that just me?). But how would you personally rectify some of these mistakes?
On the recoil damage bit, I'd personally make it so that recoil damage is calculated based on typeless damage
...when people claim that certain scientific studies are simply "excuses to make people lazy" or "justifications for immoral behaviour"?
Just a thought.
