Then it's 10.000 for a Green sprite?
As they are sold for much than that in the auctions, I'm surprised. Is it right that is only 10.000 for a common green sprite?

Yes, that's correct; 100 x 100 = 10'000. Their high price in auctions is partly because you first do have to own a Green parent of the right gender in the right egg group in order to breed a Green sprite, and partly because 1/100 isn't exactly a high chance. If you have bad luck, discards can easily pile up to 10k or more; additionally, since it is a low chance, it does take quite some time to breed a Green sprite - time that can be spent breeding other Pokémon.

Ok, thanks much for your answer =)
I prefer try to breed my green by myself rather to pay 40.000 for it...

I don't think this calculator was rendered useless at all! Yes, there's a new page for a new calculator, but it only shows you the probabilities of the Pokemon currently in your Daycare. If you want to find out the potential success rate and fees for any other pair (such as a pair you're only THINKING about breeding next, or you want to see how much it'd be to breed something before you buy the parents for it) this calculator is still extremely useful.

Just my two cents. :3

Agreed. As useful as the new page is, I'm usually breeding something so I can't really check on other success rates most of the time.

Agreed with the above! Also very very useful for newbs who don't have their Eggscope yet, and are preparing breeding plans for when they have the money, or are looking into the costs to post Buying thread stuff.

I would love to see it updated, even, if the maker ever has the time/inclination (for SP/new events, etc). This page is very much appreciated, either way! ;u;/

Totally agree with this.

Yup, noticed this yesterday. I was going to check how much it would cost to breed a shiny charmander to see if I'd have enough cash to withdraw it after purchasing a shiny parent. Sad.

Yay! I would have enough... If I could find a shiny to use. Hm...
Anyway, thanks. I do wish the calculator was back up though.

Fang said he didn't have time to keep on updating and since the other Daycalc is fine he just chucked this one :<

Prob is your pokes actually have to be in the daycare for the other calculator. Even with no updates, this was really useful.

I told him people were using it, so Fang moved the calculator to his new domain. Sorry for the whole hooha about it o7
