I removed info saying it is equal to 2^^4.

  • 4^^2 = 4^4 = 256
  • 2^^4 = 2^2^2^2 = 2^2^4 = 2^16 = 65,536

  • I'm not the one who added it, just the one who thought I corrected it. My math skils are a little rusty, but isn't it: 2^^4 = 2^2^2^2 = 2^2^4 = 2^8 = 256? Or alternately 2^2^2^2 = 4^2^2 = 16^2 = 256. --Lkseitz 19:24, 28 May 2006 (UTC)

This Number has history to it[edit]

This number, is the number of the unplayable level in PacMan, in pokemon Red and Blue, there were 256 possibilities for levels, and you could never reach 256. I think it should have something on this in the article.

Edit: Whoops it has the info on the Pacman level, info for the Pokemon thing can be found here [1]

  • I'm not sure it's important. I'm a big pokémon fan, but it's the same for any variable in game boy games, not specifically pokémon. I mean every number in games has limits, describing each one on that number's page would be pointless, and there is no valid reason to bias pokémon. I mean do we add extracts for 8 = gym badges, 151 = kanto pokémon, etc? 18:10, 7 January 2009 (UTC)~ —Preceding unsigned comment added by 80.229.163.140 (talk)

Computing Section[edit]

This number appears EVERYWHERE in computer and video games, 255 is imfamous in the pokemon community alone. I would love to know why, it needs its own section on the page for it. —Preceding unsigned comment added by 74.97.105.227 (talk) 01:55, 3 April 2011 (UTC)
