The Grand Canyon is one of the most recognizable places on Earth. It is a steep-sided canyon carved by the Colorado River in Arizona, USA. The Grand Canyon is indeed a very big hole in the ground, it is 277 miles long, up to 18 miles wide and more than 6,000 feet deep. The Grand Canyon is listed by UNESCO as a World Heritage Site since 1979.

When thinking about Pokémon spawn rates, I find it difficult to understand if this is due to a small number of creatures in the wild of if Pokémon have really good hiding abilities.

Let’s look at Caterpie spawn rates in Leaf Green: 

40% in Viridian Forest, 

20% in Route 25 

and 10% in Pattern Bush.

On a quick look at the first 2 spawn locations, it becomes obvious that the presence of a predator, Pidgey, in Route 25 makes the Caterpie’s spawn rate lower than in a safe ecosystem like the Viridian Forest. But Pattern Bush don’t have any predators and it’s the lowest spawn rate in the game for Caterpie.

I want to say that this still means that spawn rate is connected with the number of individuals, since, in Pattern Bush, Caterpie share their habitat with 4 other  bug type species and in Viridian Forest they share it share with 1 bug type and 1 electric type species. As for Route 25 the presence of a predator implies the clear shortage.

Caterpie can hide, according to Pokédex entries, so let’s compare it with a Pokémon that won’t hide: Slowpoke!

On Leaf Green reality, it is found on a lot of places… 

While rare to found underwater, with spawn rates ranging from 1% to 5%, over water it can be around 95%, in Berry Forest. In Bond Bridge, on grass, spawn rates are of 5%.

On a quick evaluation, we can understand that there are few on grass and underwater, and since they don’t try to hide nicely, there are a lot over water.

To be honest, now that I think of it correctly, can we even say that there is a finite number of Caterpie or Slowpoke in a certain zone? No, because if you so desire, in game, you can hunt infinite Slowpoke! There is no limit, except maybe the limit of Slowpoke you, as a sole trainer, end up seeing in that area. But they  will still appear if you stay there…

So there it is. There are no large or small communities, there are infinite number of several individuals belonging to Pokémon species living in the wild. If not infinite, which is physically impossible, then close to infinity. We can still say that some of the creatures we found are some of the initial we defeated or fainted, but should we? On the same square, we can defeat an infinite number of Caterpie, so that wouldn’t be possible. A Pokémon can only be taken out of its fainted status through berries, human produced items and/ or Pokémon Centers.

It is quite a difficult step to translate into our world rules. If we caught all the existing fish in a pond, there is a moment where we can’t fish anything anymore. But that doesn’t happen in Pokémon…

The best procedure is to not think in the potentially infinite number of individuals in each ecosystem, but rather how good are they at hiding. Yeah, that should do it.

(Still, there is that trap that by comparing the spawn rates in a certain zone, we can indicate that in that ecosystem there is a bigger number of individuals of a certain species compared with others: In Bond Bridge, in Leaf Green, Tentacool has a 95% spawn rate, over water, while Tentacruel has 5%. Therefore, we can assume that, in Bond Bridge there are more Tentacools than Tentacruels, right? Wrong!!! They are infinite!! It’s a trap!! Let’s continue with the hiding ability.)

So, if spawn rates are directly associated with the Pokémon hiding ability… ughh, now I’m thinking that it is only fair to think that the starters are perfect at hiding, right? No, they simply don’t exist. Like some theories describe, they are endangered species, with no individuals living on the wild.

Focus!

If spawn rates are directly associated with the Pokémon hiding ability, then let’s look again at the Caterpie spawn rates in Leaf Green: 40% in Viridian Forest, 20% in Route 25 and 10% in Pattern Bush.

Caterpie don’t require to hide in a safe place without predators, like Viridian Forest, so they reach a 40% spawn rate, similar to the Weedle. In this ecosystem Metapod or Kakuna can reach a 10%, while Pikachu only reaches 5%. On Leaf Green reality, Metapod don’t hide as well as Kakuna that have a spawn rate of 5% here.

On an ecosystem with Weedle, Kakuna, 2 grass type species and a predator, Caterpie spawn rates lowers to a 20% and Metapod to a 4%. And in the last ecosystem available, where, besides Weedle and Kakuna, Caterpie share that zone with 3 bug type species, then Caterpie spawn rates drops to a 10%, while Metapod raise to a noble 20%. Because when you have to share food, you gotta fight to survive.

Okay, so according to my mom, people don’t recycle as much anymore due to it not being financially practical (not her words, I can’t remember the exact term and this one probably does not do it justice, but bear with me). So, the big questions are:

What can we do to make the process of recycling less costly? How can we make recycling more accessible and feasible?

I get a feeling that we’re gonna need more info, first and foremost.

What’s driving costs up, given my mother is right about that factor? What is making our current recycling system inaccessible/“unpalatable” for some to use?

And, finally, if we try and nothing can be done:

How can we reinvent recycling?

I feel like recycling is something we need more than ever, and that it would do way more good than just getting rid of plastic straws, since some disabled people need those.

Feel free to boost this question even if you don’t have an answer/proposal/tip.

lov-ally  asked:

What current trend do you hope will go on for a long time?

ooo wasn’t expecting a question like this! hmmm I guess I’m going to say eco-friendly/environmental awareness in the business, political, and social world. 

Not only because I’m a nature buff and love our earth, but also coming from a business major perspective; Environmental impact measurement will not only be a means of competitive advantage, but will become a requirement for organizations to even remain competitive. Seeing active guidelines, protocols, and new trends rising within the industry and quality of living has given me hope that we may be able to preserve and save what we can. 

For example: more and more businesses in 2019 will proactively seek to capitalize on a growing market of consumers and businesses demanding environmentally responsible products and services. Social and environmental impact measurement can support organizational growth. Partnerships and open collaboration for impactful change. 

Consumers are pressuring leading corporations to take on sustainability mandates, powerful global brands have launched social impact programs with third-party organizations internationally. (Microsoft recently teamed up with the Earthwatch institute international environmental charity to measure the impact of its operations on the environment and understand how to reduce energy usage). Also, according to the Economist, the trend regarding biogas (gaseous fuel, especially methane, produced by the fermentation of organic matter.) is only set to rise. Biogas plants, within the European Union, growing by nearly 200% between 2009 and 2015.

In more simpler terms, you also may have been affected by the new Starbucks trend, that also impacts McDonalds and Coca-Cola, called  “The Next Gen Cup Challenge.” which focuses its energies on enabling supply chain-wide sustainability. I detail, it involves Closed Loop Partners (an investment organization focused on recycling infrastructure and developing a circular economy) to crowdsource solutions for designing the next global single-use coffee cup alternative. 

Starbucks also recently partnered with a company called Sustana Fiber in the Cup to Cup collaboration, to prove that single-use coffee cups could be recycled efficiently, effectively and at scale.

Now that I geeked out…I hope the trend of awareness and action regarding our environment and planet stay on the rise and continue to grow even more.
