Omanyte and Omastar collision changed in the latest GAME_MASTER!

Trainers,

we’ve observed a change in the GAME_MASTER file this morning, indicating that Omanyte and Omastar collision was changed.

Two things changed were:

  • Omanyte
    • Base collision radius multiplier reduced from 0.222 to 0.15
    • Head collision radius multiplier increased from 0.111 to 0.22
  • Omastar
    • Head collision radius multiplier increased from 0.1875 to 0.5





This fix is expected to make Omanyte a bit harder to hit, but you are more likely to hit him in the head. For Omastar, it’s more likely to hit him in the head, while the general difficulty remained the same.
