I read quite a lot of webcomics, too. And I can't believe I forgot to list Gunnerkrigg Court

Re: General Chat: Yeah, no. I'm still your benevolent neighborhood deity.

Post by d_what on Fri Jun 26, 2015 5:14 am

Well done guys!

Looking over the answers so far...
Gotta clarify a few things.

I made a mistake and asked which Pokemon shares a cry with Rhydon; nobody does. It should be RhyHORN. The first guy.

One of the questions was ambiguous. For the "highest level wild pokemon" I'll accept both the species and the number.

Few of the questions are classic "trick" questions - one of them is accidental! I got something mixed up and it turns out "it doesnt" is actually the answer. Go figure.

If someone gives me the gist of an answer they get full marks, as long as its not actually wrong. If its clear what they meant then its fine.

Some of them I'm surprised that you guys haven't got yet, other ones I'm surprised you did! In fact, I've even learned a few things. Those questions obviously get full marks. For the record, I would not be able to answer all of these questions, only guess them. You are welcome to go back and change an answer whenever you want; this works entirely on an honour system.

I am so proud of you guys ;u; I haven't counted yet, but iT may be in the lead. And some of the answers you guys have said I didn't even consider! Well done.

One of my questions I am particularly proud of and so far only iT got it (the 15 minute one without the typecharts) and I am so glad somebody did.
Grading these will be a bitch though :0 make sure you remove ambugities! I can accept guesses but can't accept multiple possible answers. I'll also answer it myself. Despite writing it, I'm... Not gonna get 100%. Not at all.

My Facebook feed has blown up! And there was a mini-party at work with alcohol that I'm not legally allowed to consume. (I had some ginger ale.)

Uh, I do have to say, a few points to Chief Justice Roberts for at least trying to be civil in his dissent, unlike some of the others (looking at you, Justice Scalia).

Oh, there was absolutely no chance of Scalia being a decent human being with regards to this case. It is a little surprising that the Obamacare ruling was a more decisive victory than this one, though.

Alright, yeah! That is some legitimately great news and I am super happy.

Unfortunately I have no time today to do any more than pop on here real quick and type a few words, but hi guys! I still don't have internet on my computer because my mom keeps putting off buying a plan, but I swear, I'm gonna find the time to participate in that awesome trivia thing tomorrow! I cannot wait to show you guys how little of a life I have how much useless knowledge I know how smart I am!

Post by muffinz on Sat Jun 27, 2015 6:45 pm

Alright, where doing this man. Where making this... occur. Or should it be "ocur"? Uh, nevermind.

Spoiler:
Which gen 1 Pokemon nearly became the series mascot, only for a vote?
I don't get the "vote" part, but Clefairy!

How many EVs can you have in a single stat in Gen 6?
252, down from 255!

How many neutral natures are there?
5, one for each non-HP stat! I wish I could remember which one simultaneously increased-decreased which stat, 'cause that's cool trivia.

This Pokemon's BST remains the same upon evolution. What is it?
Scyther! They did a pretty good job making Scizor unambiguously the better 'mon despite that, compared to some BST-increasing evolutions where the NFE is still better sometimes.

This Pokemon's evolutionary family displays 4 different types! What is it?
Uh, crap, I swear I knew this one at one point. Um, my first thought was Swablu but that's a recent development and I know this is from earlier. Oh! Oh wait, it's Nincada! Of course.

What pokemon shares a cry with Rhydon pre gen 6?
Charizard!

What gen coined the move name Tombstony?
I know this is in gen 3 in Blaine's bizarre trivia game, but I actually don't know if that question was also in the gen 1 gym. I'm gonna go out on a limb and say gen 1 had it first.

Who is Joe Merrick?
Uhh, I know that name, but I can't remember from where... I probably read it in the credits of some game and have since forgot, or something.

Which pokemon can be up to 3 times immune to certain paralysis effects?
Okay, let me think about this for a minute. It's gotta be an Electric type for their natural paralysis immunity, but what are the other two things making them immune... There aren't any Grass/Electric types unfortunately, so maybe an Electric/Grou-- Oh shit, it's Stunfisk! Electric is immune to all paralysis, Ground is immune to Thunder Wave, and then it's got Limber. Wow, I suddenly feel more smart and less dumb.

What is tge name of the player best known for using Pachirisu in 2014 VGCs?
Man, I dunno. Heard about some person using that thing, but I've never kept up with competitive too well.




Who was the original distributor of the Pokémon TCG?

What 3 shareholding businesses own The Pokemon Company?

What 2-type attack combination hits the most single types super effectively?
I should know this, but I just can't think of it off the top of my head without calculating for ten minutes.

What 2-type combination hits most single types Neutrally?
See above. :<

What Pokémon has the most weaknesses?
I think a whole bunch of type combos are tied at like seven weaknesses, so I don't think any one of them is the singular "most". If naming any of them counts, then I'll just say Exeggutor.

What Pokemon has the most resistances?
I know it was Magne[mite/ton] for a while, but I can't remember if they're still at the top. Yeah, I'll just answer with them.

This pokemon is a non-legendary "Legendary" Pokemon?
If by that you mean their little species title in the 'dex, then Arcanine.

Pokemon with the:
Lowest BST?
Sunkern.

Lowest Speed?
Shuckle, but also Munchlax. I really kinda wish Shuckle was still the singular slowest, that was fun.

Highest BST?
Both of the Mega Mewtwos.




What was the last Pokémon to be added to gen 3?
Chimecho.

This Pokemon had a beta sprite in RS and eventually debuted in DP?
I know it was Shellos or Gastrodon, but I can't remember which of the two had their sprite in the game. I'll say Gastrodon.

This move has the highest natural base power besides Explosion?
I think it's Victini's thing, the uh... the weird fire V thing. Wait a second, no, it's Selfdestruct! Pff, you almost tricked me.

What main series trainer has the highest-level in-game Pokemon?
I thiiink it's still Red?

What is the Highest level Pokemon legally available in the wild?
Magikarp, in Platinum! Can't remember if they go to 100 or "only" 99, but it's definitely Magikarp.

How many actors have voiced Ash Ketchum in the English dub?
Nooo clue. I'll say four?

How many current types feature in the TCG?
I know a bunch are missing, but I dunno how many. Maybe there's ten in total?

This pokemon has never been seen in any anime episode (and isn't a recent release)?
Both Porygon 2 and Porygon-Z! Because surely, so much as seeing them would instantly make people relive their horrible PTSD from the seizure incident that Porygon was... loosely connected to???

This pokemon has not had a TCG version for several years due to copyright fears?
Hey, we talked about this here once! Kadabra.

This Pokemon was widely considered Racist?
Duh, it's Jynx. Come on now, give us some more obscure stuff. Razz



What legendary pokemon is available in the largest number of different locations in the main series?
The legendary birds. Wait, you said it in the singular form, so is one of them more common than the others? Or does Moltres count as an extra appearance just because it changed locations? I guess I'll say Moltres.

This Pokémon was used by Red in GSC, but not in HGSS?
Lapras, I think.

This card was eventually banned from use in TCG tournaments?
Dunno.

This Pokemon is incapable of breeding for no apparent reason?
Both Nidorina and Nidoqueen.

This Pokémon used to have a chance to change sex upon evolution?
Azurill. You know, it'd be extra weird if Azurill was a non-baby 'mon and thus capable of breeding. It would be able to reproduce with both sexes in a single lifetime!

This Genderless Pokémon can learn Attract?
Cryogonal and Mew.

How many turns, on average, will it take to KO a Pokemon only through Life Orb damage?
I dunno. I'll just guess it does 1/12th damage and say 12 turns?

The item Cell Battery raises what stat?
Special Attack.

What item gives the highest power to Fling?
Iron Ball, unless they changed that recently.

Razz Berry cures what status?
What??? None.



Hondew Berry lowers what stat?
Err... Special Defense?

What colour is the Micle Berry?
Either cyan or pink... I think pink.

What move gained a whitespace character in its name upon gen 6?
Whitespace??? No clue what that's supposed to be. A bunch got regular spaces in their names, but that's all I know.

How many released Pokemon movies are there?
Hmm... 24? I have no clue, I just know it's a ton.

Longest straight route in any main series game?
That one vertical snow route in D/P/P, I think. Dunno the number, but it's the one to Snowpoint.

What region has not one, but two "regional specialties"?
Um. Unova maybe?

This NPC has had two appearances as a frontier head and as an elite four member?
Caitlin, of course.

This Pokémon has the most evolutions across generations sans eevee?
I don't know if anything has more than Chansey, Magmar, and Electabuzz.

Name 4 water/flying pokemon belonging to different generations?
Gyarados, Mantine, Pelliper, and Swanna.

Synchronoise is a move that is useless when used by what type?
Dark. And Umbreon can learn it!



Electrify changes what to the electric type?
Hm. I think... Normal-type attacks.

Extremespeed was what Pokemon's signature move?
Arcanine, very briefly.

What was Vaporeon's signature move?
Acid Armor, also very briefly. No idea why it was Poison-type before Grimer and Muk could ever learn it.

Name a move that has changed type across generations.
I can name three! Bite, Gust, Sand-Attack, Karate Chop, Whirlwind... oh, that was five. My bad!!!

The move Chatter used to interact with a particular DS feature. Which feature was this?
...The microphone. Really, this is a question? Come on, man.

This hold item was widely available in gen 5 and has not been released in gen 6.
Those pretty type-enhancing gems!

Hypnosis has what accuracy?
60 as of now, but it spent an incredibly short period of time at 70 instead.

Tackle has what base power?
50.

Thunder has what PP?
10. Kind of the "odd one out" in its move group.

Which Pokémon often holds Kings Rocks in the wild?
Hm. Slowpoke?



Which Pokemon sometimes holds Dragon Scales in the wild?
Searda. Is it really the only one?

Which pokemon has to be traded twice to be fully evolved?
Porygon.

Cherish balls have a unique property. What is it?
Is it that only a Shaymin in a Cherish Ball can allow the player to get its special flower thing?

What pokemon was invented first, chronologically?
Rhydon.

Poison type worked differently in gen 1. Explain how.
It was super-effective against Bug, and also weak to Bug, simultaneously.

This type is famous for having almost no representation in Diamond and Pearl.
Fire! ...said Fox, in that weird nasally voice.

Hey you, Pikachu! Was a game for which console?
Nintendo 64! I had this game as a kid, and it really was kind of bad.

Pokémon Trozei is also known as what game?
I... don't know.

This legendary Pokémon was available at the end of Pokemon Colosseum.
Ho-oh, despite the fact that getting it is tedious and dumb and nobody likes doing it.

Pokemon Battle Revolution for the Wii was critically and commercially panned. However, it was the first Wii game to implement a particular use of the Wii's technology. What did it do?
Oh, connecting to the DS!



Pester Balls are an item from which spinoff?
Pokémon SNOP. I mean, Snap. splinpers

The Go-Rock Squad feature in what spinoff?
One of the Ranger games. Who cares, they have a stupid name anyways.

Name a major character in Mystery Dungeon: Explorers of Time?
...You're asking me to name any major character? Any of them? Okay, um, Dialga. Is this a joke question?

The VS seeker originated in what games?
Fire Red and Leaf Green. Fire isn't even red, ugh!

Who is the third gym leader in the Sinnoh region?
Depending on what game you're playing, it's Maylene or Fantina.

Who is the sixth leader in Black and White?
Come on, it's Skyla.

What non-steel Pokemon is Jasmine known for owning?
Onix. I almost said Ampharos, but she doesn't own that thing.

In Ruby and Sapphire, which Pokemon has to be at the front of the party in order to unlock the Golem trio?
I know it was Relicanth in one and Wailord in the other out of R/S and E, but I can't remember which was for which. I'll go with Wailord.

The term shiny was originally a fan-name. What name was originally used in the series?
Alternate Colored, or "ALT. COLOR" as it appeared in RSE's text-entering boxes.

Name a Glitch-based type from Gen 1.
Bird. There's also a Normal-type that isn't the Normal-type!




Happiness was a feature from what generation?
It kinda appeared in Yellow, but gen 2 made it a regular game mechanic first.

Ken Sugimori is known for contributing what to the Pokemon franchise?
Almost all the official artwork.

Who invented Pokemon?
Uh, crap. I can't remember who exactly it was, even though I totally know it. Um, Satoshi Tajiri, I think? That's probably misspelled.

What is Spiritomb's "key" number?
108.

What Pokemon besides Pikachu has fought in every iteration of Smash Bros.?
Why, none other than the jiggliest of puffs.

Name a series Pokemon has crossovered with in some form or another, besides Smash Bros..
Uhh, the thing Pokémon Conquest was based on. What was it called, Nonabungle's Ambition? Nodaboda's? Noraboner's? You know, those games.

What Pokemon is #25 in the national Pokedex?
Oh, some obscure Electric-type nobody remembers. You know, the one with the zig-zaggety tail? You probably don't remember it.

#100?
Why, could it be Voltorb? Yes, it could.

#666?
Vivillon, whose name is slightly odd to me since my dog is (mostly) a papillon.

This trainer has the best Rattata.
I'm sure his name isn't Joey or anything, that guy's Rattata sucks. yeah it's joey


Shorts have two primary advantages. What are they?
One is that they're comfy. The other is that they are easy to wear. Both of those things at once! So amazing. Clearly no other legwear has such a large list of advantages.

You like this Pokemon, and it has heard about it.
No, no, no, you got it all wrong. The Mudkip isn't the one who heard that you like it, the person saying the line is the one who heard that you like it. Whether or not the Mudkip knows you like it has yet to be ascertained.

Smugleaf!
...is an incredibly stupid name that some people tried to attribute to Snivy.

Seviper evolves from this Pokemon, apparently!
Charbocka. I mean, uh, Arbok.

N's full name is...
...kind of stupid. First of all, "Harmonia" is supposed to be his last name, not middle, considering what Ghetsis says about them sharing the name. N is a more cool and mysterious first name when it's only a letter alone, and having it be short for "Natural" makes it just a little bit worse in my eyes. Finally, Gropius just sounds dumb in multiple ways, and he's supposed to already have a last name in Harmonia!

The first non-legendary to be banned from competitive play was...
Probably in gen 1, I think, so I'll guess Alakazam.

One of the best known "rumoured" Pokemon was known as...
Pikablue, but that always seemed more like just a joke to me. Mewthree might be the more seriously rumored one?

"Aim for the horn" is an anime quote that inspired what ability?
Lightningrod!

"Why so serious" is a quote from what fictional character? And what other fictional character?
Silver! And also some weird clown guy nobody cares about.



What Pokémon is the best?
None are better than Kricketune.

Very Happy

I'm not gonna correct any yet because I reckon there's still some people who we can eke answers from. In the meantime: Going back over your answers IS allowed! You can edit them as often as you like. And please remove either/or answers; if you write "it's either raichu, raikou, or remoraid" and the acceptable answers are raichu, raikou or rapidash, then it's a 0, whereas "Raichu" alone is a 1.

I'll also ask some general questions on the test which I would appreciate people considering!

1) Should I really make this an annual thing and do it next year :O

2) Did you find the test too hard?

!2) Did you find the test too easy?

3) Do you think the other testees would agree?

4) Was the mix of questions good? Should it have been broader, or more focused? I tried to keep most of the questions as in-game, main-series trivia of varying difficulties with a sprinkling of spin-off knowledge, anime, tcg, competitive and fandom related questions. Nothing too indepth on most of those.

5) Is there a question you were kind of hoping would show up that didn't?

6) Did any question in particular make you groan because you felt you should know and couldn't remember?

I think it was a pretty good difficulty level. If you had gone much easier, I think you'd run the risk of people getting everything right and having no way to choose a winner. Any harder, and we might have gotten discouraged and given up. As far as questions I was expecting that didn't show up, I'm surprised you didn't ask about which Pokémon are numbers 413 and 612.

On that note, have you seen the current Awkward Zombie?
I love their comics about Smash:

I'm still gonna wait on correcting the questions, there are still people who might be interested in doing them before I finish it.

Anyway, has anyone ever played 1000 blank white cards? I haven't, but my friends are into board games and broadly tcgs and I like the sound of it, so I'm going to see about playing it this weekend. It looks like a lot of fun! I've made 80 cards already :0 I also have to put a Pokemon team together, because I've been slacking on that and I still don't have one for the yearly convention I go to, and it's next weekend. Yikes.

ALRIGHT LISTEN UP YALL:

I AM ORGANIZING AN OFFICIAL ***POKEMON QUARANTINE CARDS AGAINST HUMANITY GAME**** AGAIN BECAUSE THAT WAS A FUN THING EVEN THOUGH I DIDNT PARTICIPATE IT IN IT THE FIRST TIME

July tenth, this friday, 3 pm my time, EST. So that's like...
8pm for poind_exter and octi
9pm for OJ
I don't know what specific region of brazil spark is in or what area of australia xaber is in and I don't really know what everyone else's location is whoops ._.

BUT the point will be... use random.org and get yourself a number between 1 and 721, and use the number you get as your Pokemon Name for the game, and when it's done we all post here as to what we were. Sound good?
The game will be played on Pretend You're Xyzzy, the game name will be "The Official Pokemon Quarantine CaH Game" and the password will be "smuppedo."

Thoughts?

Filthy hobbitses stealing my content-providing-abilities /jk

I've never been a huge CAH fan! I find a lot of the humour tends towards absurdest innuendos over logical coherency, and *self evidently* logical coherency is the primary foundation of basically all humour. /s (but seriously, if in a game "horse dildo" wins REGARDLESS of the context, then I no longer find it funny.) That said I'm still very much up for it! I've never done a Pokemon one before and I enjoy activities.

The only catch is I miiiiiiight be at a convention on Friday evening. I'm definitely going over the weekend, the con'll still be setting up on Friday. So call it 50/50; I'll try harder to be around as the numbers increase.
But iT, I gotta tell ya. As the progenitor of a lot of would-be forum activities, [source needed] rounding up more than 3 of us in a day or two in a hour is a task and a half. We're harder to corrall than cats on a carousel.

Aside: I either had no idea or had completely forgotten that Octi and I share a timezone? I guess I just assume everybody's from the US until told otherwise.


Edit; how doth one change their associated email address on this website? Mine is a Uni one and I lose access to it in September what with graduating D:

Darn it, I'm not gonna be able to be there, I don't think. We are most likely still not going to have internet here at this house until like... a literal week from now, probably??? And I know a mobile browser isn't exactly going to be capable of playing a game. It's not impossible for us to have the 'net by Friday, but I'm not holding my breath. :<
Seriously, this internet situation is so stupid. "Probably within a week from now" is a lot better than "Some unknown length of time from now", but STILL. We've been living in this house for a month now! You know how the_what noted once that I have really terrible luck with technology? Apparently that hasn't yet stopped being a thing.

There's no way we can bump that time slot back a few hours, is there? Because I'll still be at work at 3. And d_what, it looks like you'll have to get HP to take care of it for you.
