So basically, I got in an argument about statistics in a pokemon game with my brother. ha Anyways, heres the details
When you encounter a pokemon, you know if it is either male or female. Only after the battle are you able to learn the nature of the pokemon, of which there are 25 natures. My brother insists on only catching the Male pokemon, while he is also looking for one with 1 of 2 of the 25 natures.
The question: Does skipping the female pokemon without knowing their nature lessen the chance of him finding one with the right nature?
