First off, hi! I'm new to the forums and I'm still very much a beginner to Ti-Basic, and even moreso of a beginner with assembly, so I don't expect this project to be fully optimized as I've written it, so I've come looking for some critique.

It's a basic Pokemon battle simulator, with the following features:
-Four randomly generated moves for both you and your enemy
-Moves can be either Physical or Special
-Moves have PP (Higher PP for lower damaging moves)
-Once you run out of PP, you're forced to use Struggle
-Moves have Accuracy (Higher Accuracy for lower damaging moves)
-Random Critical Hits

Stats are randomly generated using random base stats that aren't unrealistic.
The only thing the user really chooses in the battle is what level your pokemon should be, what level the enemy should be, and what move to use.

Here's the source code that I'm looking to have critiqued.
I'm particularly proud of the section that generates random moves, but I'd like to know what you all think of my code

Hi there, welcome to the forums!

I didn't read the code, i just skimmed it, but here are the few things i already noticed:
  • You can leave away the trailing quote (that way you save a few bytes), so that you only have like Disp "blah
  • Try to use less Lbl/Goto, yes, that means not using the built-in Menu( command, the reson is:
  • You can also leave away " and ) before the -> arrow (i think)

Reasons for not using Lbl/Goto:
  • Results in spaghetti-code, try using While and Repeat loops and thelike instead
  • The TI-Basic interpreter has a bug where if you Goto away while you are inside of a While/Repeat or an If that requires an End it'll still be looking for the end of that loop even though it jumped out --> eventually you'll get an Error:Memory



Edit: added optimization

I completely agree with Sorunome about the memory leak issue.  When I write something, I watch out for such issues. There are just way too many spaghetti code (aka TI-spaghetti-basic) games on ticalc.org.
Feel free to download any of my programs:
