Hey there people, this is Daniel here with a unique kind of quiz for you all, here's the lowdown:

Basically, I will start by asking you all a trivia question that will relate to Pokémon *psst* by the way, it could be anything...

Then whoever gets the question right, earns a point, yay!!

This point will be recorded by me, and then the next question will be asked.

Now this may sound like a normal quiz up to now, but here's the twist:

What you shall see below will be a list of abilities which you can buy with the points that you earn, and these abilities can do various things, some will help you while some will hinder your opponents.

If you wish to purchase an ability, then you can do so just as long as you have enough points. But you can ONLY purchase an ability if you are going to answer the current question in the SAME post.

All of these abilities are one-time use only unless otherwise stated *psst* which is rare...

They are also only active from the moment that they are used, so for example...

Say that the player placing 1st answered the current question, but then the next player to post used a Roar. The answer from the player placing 1st would still be taken into account, but in the event that the answer was wrong, that player would not be able to answer the current question again because of the effects of Roar.

Well, here are the abilities... OH, and you can only buy one ability per question, and you can only use one ability per question, just though I should alert you to that, :silly: :

1 point - Double Kick
For this turn, you may answer twice in one post
NOTE: You may answer twice in the same post that this is used

1 point - Tackle
For this turn, neither you, nor the player currently placing 1st can answer the current question or use any abilities
NOTE: Cannot be used if more than one player is currently placing 1st
NOTE: The user cannot answer in the post that this is used

2 points - Roar
For this turn, the player currently placing 1st cannot answer the current question or use any abilities
NOTE: Cannot be used if more than one player is currently placing 1st

2 points - Ember
Deduct 1 point from any 1 player
NOTE: Cannot be used on a player with no points
NOTE: Cannot be bought if all other players have no points

3 points - Thunder Wave
For this turn and the next turn, the target player will be unable to purchase or use any abilities

3 points - Double Team
For this turn and the next turn, no other player can target you specifically with any abilities

5 points - Giga Drain
Deduct 2 points from any 1 player and add that amount to your own
NOTE: If used on a player with only 1 point, only 1 point is added to your own points
NOTE: Cannot be used on a player with no points
NOTE: Cannot be bought if all other players have no points

10 points - Explosion
Deduct all points from all players apart from yourself, and for the next three turns you cannot answer

Well, that's all there is for now, but the above abilities may be edited at a later date, depending on how well things go.
I also may add more abilities in the future as well, so look out for those.
Please note though that it isn't compulsory to purchase or use these abilities. Heck, if you wanted to, you could all just answer the questions and ignore the abilities, but that would take all the fun out of it though, wouldn't it.

Anyways, now for a few basic rules to the trivia:

- Only one answer per post unless an ability allows you to do otherwise
- No double-posting
- If there are any problems then PM me, don't ask here, I don't want to end up with a debate on my hands
- It is preferred that you do not edit your post to actually change your answer, the only time that I'll really allow it is if you are answering a question with multiple answers when you have only posted one or two of the answers
- You cannot edit your previous answers AT ALL after I have given the verdict on whether those answers are right or not
- You may only answer once at a time, for example:

I ask a question, you answer it, you cannot then post again with a different answer until I have given the verdict as to whether that answer is correct or not. You see now?

I think that's all there is to say, so now on to the questioning, good luck people!!!

Question 1

Which ACTUAL legendary Pokémon have ACTUALLY been featured in the anime series?
NOTE: This does not include special episodes, banned episodes, or movies
NOTE: This does not include any flashback or historical scenes, a character has to have actually encountered the legendary in that episode
NOTE: This does not include any episodes that have only been aired in Japan
NOTE: You will only earn the point if you name every single one

HINT: The only Pokémon that I am considering legendary are:
Articuno, Zapdos, Moltres, Mewtwo, Mew, Entei, Raikou, Suicune, Lugia, Ho-oh, Celebi, Regirock, Regice, Registeel, Latias, Latios, Groudon, Kyogre, Rayquaza, Jirachi, any Deoxys form


Good luck everyone, hope this works well!!!

That legendary is Moltres that represent the flame torch of the Pokemon League ^^
And I also remember featuring Articuno in one of the episodes, yet I can't remember that quite well =P
I also remember Ho-Oh, first episode...
Mewtwo in the battl;e between Gary and Giovanni (The edpisode where Ash gets his last Kanto badge)
Suicune, can't remeber when or where, but I saw him in an episode...
Raikou in couple of episodes..
Lugia, Zapdos and Enite would be my last choices because everyone else didn't appear I guess...

Is there any more?

Well Tamer, you got 'em all!!

Yes, there have only been appearances by 9 different legendary Pokémon that fit my criteria, and those were as follows, along with an example each of an episode that they were featured in:

Articuno - "Freeze Frame"
Zapdos - "As Clear As Crystal"
Moltres - "All Fired Up!"
Mewtwo - "The Battle of the Badge"
Entei - "Entei at Your Own Risk"
Raikou - "Houndoom's Special Delivery!"
Suicune - "Don't Touch That 'Dile"
Lugia - "A Parent Trapped!"
Ho-oh - "Gotta Catch Ya Later!"

Well, that's 1 point to Tamer!!

Point Rankings

1st - Tamer San - 1 point


Next question up soon!!

Well can you hurry up with the question? and also...

what if you're in first and want to use an attack... would it go down to the second person? like tackling yourself would be kinda... useless...

Good point, didn't actually think of that for some reason, :tongue2:

Well then, here's a new ruling:

RULE: Any ability that targets another player of a specific placing cannot be used if the user is of that specific placing

eg. If you are first, and you have a Roar, you cannot use it until you place below first

By the way, I apologise for the delay in the second question, I haven't been updating around PE2k for a couple of days now, but anyways, here's the next one...

Question 2

Game Boy
I have 60,000 credits, I buy three Protein from the Energy Guru during a sale, six Escape Rope, twelve Super Repel, one Antidote, and three Poké Balls. I then sell five Protein and thirteen Great Balls back to another Poké Mart. After which, I beat the Elite Four four times in a row, once with an Amulet Coin. How many credits do I have left?
NOTE: This is for Ruby and Sapphire

HINT: Amulet Coin doubles the money earned after a battle providing that the attached Pokémon participates in that fight

08-19-2004, 02:32 AM

550x6= 3300
500x12= 6000
100x1= 100
200x3= 600
35300 credits left.

4900x5= 24500
300x13= 3900

63700 credits left.





225700 Credits Total

meh... might not be the right answer, but who cares?

Right, phew, it's been a while hasn't it...

Well, Matthew got every single part of that calculation spot on, and considering the fact that nobody else seemed to even dare to try and work it out themselves, it looks like you've got the point, nice one!!

Yes, the total does indeed come to a whopping 225,700 credits, mulah in huge form!!

Point Rankings

1st equal - Tamer San - 1 point
1st equal - Matthew - 1 point


Here's the next question for you all!!

Question 3

Name three Pokémon that Jesse, James and Meowth have wanted to capture to make Giovanni happy?
NOTE: I will accept any three
NOTE: It MUST be a Pokémon which was featured in some sort of dream sequence involving Giovanni, eg. Team Rocket sees a Pokémon, and then we see a little animation of how that particular Pokémon could benefit Giovanni

08-30-2004, 12:15 AM
1. Pikachu and Togepi? (can't think of another)

Manjoume Jun

Well, that's a good start, but I asked for three...

Also, I have decided to award an extra point to the owner of the correct answer if he or she also includes what Team Rocket had thought the Pokémon in question could actually do to benefit their boss.
