Is Foe Depart Rate legit?

I noticed this a lot of times that the departure of my Foundable is denied right in the middle of the spell rather than after the completion (as happens with Dawdle Drought).

So this made me wonder was my Foundable actually departing or they just insert the Foe Departure denied message just randomly so we believe it made a difference when we go on completing the SOS skill tree.

    I believe it is real. One of the complaints with the original dawdle was that noone could tell if it was effective or not, so if the foundable tried to depart, you would see it. My guess is that it uses RNG to calculate whether the foundable is departing or not, then calculates whether your departure denied stats are high enough to counter that. A bit like rolling the dice a couple of times in your D&D game.

    I wonder if we can find our personal departure rates… I’d bet mine was pretty high… at least 10%

    @RedsWolf You can... you know how they gave the short tutorial that had you click on the wizard icon, on the left side of the S.O.S. screen; when you first started your S.O.S. trees?

    Well... do that... and there it is.

    @BenTiger yeah, I know about that...

    What I’m talking about is the %age of my encountered foundables that have departed. I’m sure that Niantic have the information… somewhere! 😂

    @Kodokmag No, it isn't maxed. There is one more skill left, with 4 levels of 3%, so 40% is max for general departure denial. The last skill costs 14 DADA books per level, though.

    It didn't make a lot of difference for me, from 5% to 20% TBH

    @BenTiger Maybe you know this? If I have 14% Departure Denial under Primary Skillset Appraisal, and 5% in Categorised Departure Denial for a specific family, does that mean it's 19% for that family?
