1 pt is important, because it lets you kill a 30HP opponent in two rather than three hits.

Simple?

A very specific case, Presnetiment. I'd rather see the difference be two points, this way the same difference-over-time argument could be applied to more situations.

Anyhow, I think that the vast majority of active users have had their say and I'll edit the formulated page accordingly now.

I'm just pointing out 1 pt can potentially make a big difference.

Think of it in another way:

30HP is Griffin with 1 Psy Defense upgrade from the start.

16HP is Set's starting HP.

Because it is uncommon for a teammate to die or for you to lose, 'situationality' is far more important for the computer than for you.

You can't ever ignore 1 dmg.

Can we close this topic and just settle with the current Glider.

Indeed, Presntiment, we got you the first time, no need to repeat the obvious.

I've ameneded the stats and the topic is, now, locked.
