Hi!

I have a yellow flute on, and with the 4x it's not making the bonus trigger of Doubles EXP/EHP increment for 24 hours. Only affects the Pokémon/Eggs placed in your Party. shouldnt it show as either 6x or 8x?

As far as I know, there are only special Icons for sidewide x2, x3 and x4 multiplier. Your yellow flute only works for you, and it is not reflected in the multiplier Icon. Your flute will still work properly, don't worry :)

I bought a Yellow Flute at reset, and it hasn't been working for me either. I was only getting 60-100 EHP as the base amount (which was then multiplied by 4), but usually, with flutes, the base amount is above 100 EHP. I think, for some reason, the 4x multiplier cancels out party flutes.

I've noticed that the 1.5x EHP/EXP multiplier from Premium still works though.

I also found this report of the same bug from 10 years ago

Since this wasn't explicitly stated anywhere, I'd like a refund of 25 Nuggets /hj

In the linked thread, it says it does work, so I'm kinda confused how that proved it doesn't work?

I'm pretty sure that by "my flute was still going on", they meant the flutes were still active, but they had no effect (didn't boost EHP gain). Their complaint was that flute timer should be paused on 2x days, since they have no effect, and it's a waste of the nuggets spent.

"If I have a flute in a normal day, I get 199~250 ehp.
Today [a 2x day], I gained the same on my eggs."


Riako said that on 2x days, "The flute does count for you. Basically it's a x3 day for you today.", but it's not clear if similarly, its 4x/5x on 3x/4x days.

From what I noticed throughout the 4x day, the flute didn't affect EHP gain at all.

It does work, but it's basically like a X5 multiplier on an x4 day which - in relation to the x4 boost itself - is not suuuuuper noticable. It's basically 25% more compare to what You're already getting through the x4

shouldnt it be a 8x multipler or even 6x then? cause if 2x then 4x should be base minimum of 6x max of 8x if it 2x the 4x

@Riako
Thanks for replying!

I assume that by "Doubles EXP/EHP increment", it's actually increasing it by 100%, and the 4x multiplier is increasing it by 300% (of the original EHP, not the EHP already increased by a flute).

Could I also ask how the Premium multiplier works? Is it increasing EHP gain by 50% (of the original EHP) or is it multiplying by 1.5?

Maybe it would be better to slightly change the description, similar to how the Mega Cuff says "increases your chance to hatch a mega-able Pokémon by 500%".

In short, do the multipliers stack additively, or multiplicatively?
