Okay Ledybas and Pokegerms, Welcome to my Pokemon Puzzle Lab.

I will post a series of interesting puzzles for whoever would like to solve them.
:I will issue all the infomation you will need.
:There may be more than one answer on most occasions.
:If someone has a go at an answer, and they might get it wrong, dont flame them. Thats not nice is it?
:You may ask Questions, but do not ask for hints.
: Upon completion of successfully solving ANY puzzle, I would ask you to PLEASE DELETE YOUR POST for the benefit of everyone else still trying to figure it out. Have a heart and let them enjoy this thread as much as you did.

Pokemon PUzZle #1 The Deserted Island!

On a deserted Island, only two palm trees, an abundance of sand and a broken beaten up wooden boat at your disposal. You have no surf or fly hidden machines(HM's) at your disposal. You cannot dig under the water. It is at least 1000 miles from the nearest safe mainland. No airplanes come within close enough distance to see you on the island, but they can see the island. No people besides yourself.
Heres the info youve been waiting for. You have the choice between two pokemon.
Mr Mime with Any move he can learn Naturally(without a TM).
Or a flightless Natu. This bird has not learnt fly. --> Solved by Thunderbird (Thunder, please delete that answer, thank you ;))

PoKmon PuZzLe #2 The Fire Hazard!

Okay, this ones easy. You are a Charmeleon! You're in the forest, deep deep in the forest. Your trainer is an elite Ranger! His job is to protect the forest at all costs. So you help him whenever possible. You get the call to help a poor stantler further in the forest.

You get lost! Worse! you lose your trainer!!! He cant find you, You cant find him. O_O! The poor Stantler might be dying as you look frantically for your owner!

How do you get reunited with your trainer?
-->Solved by Thunderbird

:No rain has fallen, the forest is dry.
:You cannot light a fire!!! Dont wanna start an emergency!
:You cannot call out. You try and try but to no avail.
:Time is of the essance!
:You are alone.
:You only have naturally learnt moves available to you.

Part two..... -->Solved by Thunderbird
Your the Stantler! YaynEsS! A fire has just started by accident while you were battling a rather strong Rapidash. You tried and succeeded in fending the rapidash off, but she spat a flamethrower at the ground as she ran off. The blaze isnt too big yet, BUT your weak. No amount of stomping and slamming is possible.

Put the Fire out
:You only have moves naturally learnt available to you.
:No water is any where nearby.
:You are alone

Get guessing and good Luck.

Pokemon PUzZle #3
Ash and Brock were excitedly describing the result of a Pokemon Contest. There were three contestants, Carrie, May, and Misty. Ash reported that Carrie won the fair, while May came in second. Brock, on the other hand, reported that Misty won the fair, while Carrie came in second.

In fact, neither Ash nor Brock had given a correct report of the results of the science fair. Each of them had given one correct statement and one false statement. What was the actual placing of the three contestants?

Pokemon PUzZle #4
You have three boxes of Pokeballs. One contains just FriendBalls, one contains just Levelballs, and one contains a mixture of both. Each box is labeled -- one says "Friendballs," one says "Levelballs," and one says "Friendballs and Levelballs." However, it is known that none of the boxes are labeled correctly. How can you label the boxes correctly if you are only allowed to take and look at just one Pokeball from just one of the boxes?

I can solve #4.

I think anyways.

So you look inside the one labelled LEVEL BALLS. (or friend balls, both work)
Say you find LEVEL and FRIEND BALLS in that one, then you know the one labelled LEVEL and FRIEND BALLS has FRIEND BALLS in it, since the one labelled FRIEND BALLS cannot contain FRIEND BALLS, and therefore has the LEVEL BALLS.

Intelligent.

Pokemon Puzzle #5: Mansion of Lies
Shuppet was drawn to a magnificant haunted mansion. It was called the Lying mansion. Shuppet quickly found out why it was called such. It gathered some information about some of the mansions inhabitants.

Theres a Gastly there that tells lies on Mondays, Tuesdays and Wednesdays, and tells the truth on each of the other days of the week. Then theres a Sableye that lies on Thursdays, Fridays and Saturdays, but tells the truth on each of the other days. Such a strange habit.

One day, in the ballroom, the Shuppet heard them talking. The Gastly said, "Yesterday i lied all day." to which the Sableye responded with exactly the same words. What day was it?

Pokemon puzzle #7: Blissey at your service

Nurse joy has left the building on an important callout. She's gone for the day at least. She's taken all her pokemon with her on her mission, except YOU(Blissey:620/620hp). You've been left behind to take care of the pokemon center. Within minutes you break the pokemon healing machine. Its out of order untill Joy gets back.

You prune the 3 tree's outside happily, during a standard slow day. No-one ever comes to this pokemon centre because its kinda isolated.

Suddenly a trainer(Hank) bursts from over a hill and bolts into your office inside with you following worriedly. "HELP ME!!!" he screams frantically opening four pokeballs. Out come....

1 : A PARalysed Cleffa with 10/210 hp left.
2 : A POIsoned Magby with just 20/220 hp left and
3 : A FAInted Tyrogue. 0/200 hp left.
4 : A severely upset/frantic Wigglytuff. 150/360 Now this Wigglytuff is interesting because it hates nurses. It WILL NOT let you near enough to apply anything. This looks like a bit of a puzzle.

Impress your Nurse. Heal them ALL.

:You can NOT use force on poor Wigglytuff.
:No other trainers are around other than Hank.
:None of his pokemon are holding items.
:Hank carries NO items. Learn from that.
:Nurse Joy cannot be contacted.
:You only have moves Naturally learnt to you.
:You can only use CONVENTIONAL means to heal. Nothing like.. Ice packs or bandages or using psychic for healing. (it could happen)
:There is no rain coming, no natural water landmarks nearby.
:The pokemon healing device cannot be fixed.
:You CANNOT allow any more pokemon to faint.
:Heal bell is unavailable.
:No sacred Ash or Lum Berries either

Worth 2 points, it's a long and hard one

This is one of my altime fave puzzles ever. It takes some serious pokemon knowhow and a little bit of extra thinking to get this one right. I recall alot of forums sites struggling long days over this one.

Muaha.

Pokemon puzzle #7: Blissey at your service
Well i think of a way... first use Sing on the interesting Wigglytuff, then use softboiled to heal all the pokemon.
and do Hank only carries these four pokemon?

I have an Idea:

#7 Blissey at your service
All of the trees bear Sitrus Berries. Hank releaces all of his pokemon, except Wigglytuff and Tyrogue. Blissey gathers every berry. She cures the status abnormalities with aromatherapy, an egg move. One at a time, she heals them with softboiled, and gathers three more berries, which have grown durring the healing process. Hank sends out Tyrogue. Blissey uses metronome, another egg move. The random move: pain split. Blissey sacrifices half of her hp, and sends it to Tyrogue. All pokemon are at full health besides Wigglytuff. Blissey gathers one more berry and sets all seven in a basket in the pokemon center. Hank recalls all of his pokemon, and Blissy hides outside. Hank sends out Wigglytuff which gobbles up all the Sitrus berries, and is now at full health.

I hope this right!! *crosses fingers*

Negatory. Incorrect. Sorry, but not even close. Thanks for the heads up on those "Egg Moves" but they were a huge no-no. In the puzzle, i specifically wrote, "Naturally learnt moves". To elaborate on what i meant there, i will explain.

Moves learned specifically through levelling up. No Breeding moves, no egg moves. ok. Hint Link (http://www.serebii.net/pokedex-rs/242.shtml). This might help. Note the lack of "Metronome" in the levelling up move list.

Those trees are nothing dissimilar to the game.... and as we all know... those darn berries dont grow back in mere seconds my friends. wow... de-ja-vu.

To answer a question i saw earlier, yes Hank only has those four Pokemon. He's a very ill equipped pokemon trainer. Learn from his mistakes. Bad Hank.

Now this puzzle was concocted by myself over a year ago now, and i only just remembered the answer for it. It didnt take me long to recall it.

Good luck :crackup:

Not quite
If you use softboiled on all the others, theres not enough hp left to cure the tyrouge and rain dance doesnt revive.
Nice try :p

Pokemon puzzle #7: Blissey at your service
Blissey is holding a max revive to use on the Tyrogue. It can use the berries from the trees it was pruning to cure the paralysis and poisoning on Cleffa and Magby. Uses Sing to put the Wigglytuff to sleep so that it can use soft boiled on it. Softboiled on Cleffa and Magby too.


Pokemon puzzle #8: Do I Look Fat In This Honey?

Wow! You've bought your ticket for a pokemon contest exhibition. The contests are simply amazing! One in particular was very very hard to determine a winner untill the judges adjudicated their judgements. The contest was called simply, "Shortest Heavyweight". Basically whichever pokemon had the most weight per meter of height won. Nine contestants entered confident their own pokemon was the heaviest per meter, and each one showed their pokemon off proudly. The contestants were...

Scizor : Could his buff frame be the heaviest?
Swampert : 81.9 kg's of water is still alot of water!
Ampharos : Does static count for this pear shaped Dragon?
Steelix : Whoaaa!!! thats alotta steel baby!
Magcargo : Whats in that shell exactly?
Venusaur : Woohoo, look at that blubber fly!!
Exploud : Is this pokemon full of hot air?
Meganium : A dinosaur sized contender?
Nidoking : NidoKing of the fatties? Maybe.


That one should be easy :p One point
