^Yeah, that's precisely what I'm talking about. I did find that very odd. I'm still working on it. I'm guessing libelldra isn't as reliable as we thought when it comes to Life Orb. You can check the calcs I did if you want. You can see that it does take 0.03% less damage according to the "multiply HP by defense" trick. I need to redo the other calcs by hand.
The reason I was "arguing" Shadow Ball vs. Shadow Ball was simply because it was pretty much an Outrage vs Outrage argument since effectively, all the damages are the same except for those two. However, precisely speaking, yours does take the hits better except for that bare minimum Shadow Ball and has better physical defensive potential at the cost of almost nothing for special defense. But you're right, I do realize it's irrelevant.
Hmm. That's a good idea actually. Go ahead and do that if you have time. We could put the Appendix in a linked-to post too.
Edit: Oh, I see. Silly sppf lag.
