View Full Version : *~Which flavor would you like?~* (A "Guess the Theme" game)


Hoenn Mirror Girl

Rules:
1. You have three guesses per flavor, and once you make a guess in that flavor, you're stuck with it unless you get it right. If you get the theme of that listing correct, you get to make the next list for that flavor for the next round and get to guess at the others in the current round, but if you guess wrong all three times, then that listing for that flavor will be dropped and you have to wait until the next round, so be careful!
Example: If you managed to guess the theme of the Spicy (Super Hard) flavor, then you get to make the next spicy list. However, if you end up getting the spicy list wrong, the Spicy List will be dropped and you won't be able to guess until the next round.

2. Once you make a list for the flavor list that you've got right (maximum: 2 lists), you have to wait till the next round before you can guess that flavor again. This is so that others can try their luck with it, and it's no fair guessing your own list!
Example: Since the Sweet and Sour flavor will give you very little problems, they'll be pretty easy to guess. After you make the new Sweet and/or Sour lists, you can't guess at either one until the next round. That way, others can guess at Sweet and Sour, and you can try your luck with Salty, Bitter, and Spicy.

3. Try to keep your listing with the appropiate flavor.
Example: Unless people scout the fanfic section 24-7, putting your list of starring Pokemon from your fic in the Sweet and Sour section would be a rather bad idea. Likewise, people would feel ripped off if you put Jessy and James's Pokemon teams in the Spicy listing because almost everyone here has seen the anime at one point of their lives.

4. A round ends once all five flavors are guessed. Points will be added up, and there will be a sudden death round for every tenth round (rules for that will be posted when the time comes). Also, this thread will be locked until the winners send me their list via PM.

5. To avoid having this thread to die, you will have a maximum of a week from the lists are made to guess. If no one guesses, then I'll reveal the answers and make the lists.

Here's what you can expect for the flavors:

Sweet - the easiest (most likely obvious similiarites)
Sour - a bit harder than sweet, but not by much (anime teams)
Salty - not hard, but not easy (most likely abilities and common moves)
Bitter - more challenging than the other three flavors (stuff from PE2K's sections)
Spicy - the hardest of the five (mostly VPPs, but some other stuff as well)

CURRENT SCORES (from Rounds 1-4)
Nefarious - 12 (1st!!)
wikemike - 8 (3rd)
Thanatos - 11 (2nd!)
ishak - 0
LugiaTamer2k5 - 0
Blast Burn - 5
Paperfairy - 7
!ceMAn - 1
Pidgeot79 - 6

For the convience of newcomers, the next post will be updated once there is a new round.

Just to let you know. You've got it right, and you get to make the next sweet list once the new round starts. Until then, you get to guess at another. Just make sure you think hard about it because once you try to guess your next flavor, you're stuck with it until you get it right.

Nefarious

Ok. I'll guess Sour.

Sour = Ash's team.

You've got the hint right. Now guess the answer.

I am guessing that it's a story from pokemon fanfict.

Umm since Ishak first guessed he is the only one that can guess from now on until he gets it right, or until he runs out of turns. If he runs out of turns then someone else can guess.

And of course it's from a pokemon fanfic. but which one? :rolleyes:

Hoenn Mirror Girl
03-18-2005, 02:38 PM
Actually, anyone could guess at Bitter until one person's turns run out.

So, both LugiaTamer and ishak have two turns left. If either one uses up their turns, it's over.

Here's another hint for Bitter since everyone's having a hard time with it:

The three of us spun around and to our shock, we saw four Wind Strikers and what appeared to be their leader, a green and vicious looking Scyther riding on a Flygon. Vice had stepped back and shook his head.

“Oh no…” Vice moaned in fear, “It can’t be him… Not now…”
“Who is that?” I asked Vice, never before seeing him in so much fear.
“That’s Vorox and Tychal.” Vice told Randy and I, “Vorox has killed nearly a thousand Silver Rebellion troops, torched five of our cities, and had earned all seventeen ranks of the Crimson Stars…”

Randy had looked up at the Scyther with a fearful look in his eyes. I couldn’t believe it either.

“You mean he’s the…?” Randy asked in fear.
“Yes…” Vice replied, “The leader of the Wind Strikers…”

Blast Burn and Thanatos are both wrong on Sour. Be more specific in your answer. Blast burn is very close but I need more explanation.

Loyal Arcanine
03-22-2005, 02:22 PM
So now Blast Burn and Thanatos can both guess Sour two more times, and if they don't guess right, it's closed ... ? Please correct me if I got the rules wrong. :oops:

Well, it has something to do with a specific song that plays at the end credits and has nothing to do with Pokerap, so no.

Sorry for the double post... but this game appears dead (doubly sorry for the revival). So I made a new rule:

5. To avoid having this thread to die, you will have a maximum of a week from the lists are made to guess. If no one guesses, then I'll reveal the answers and make the lists.

However, I'll give everyone until Saturday at noon PST. If no one guesses by then... on to round three!

Nefarious
04-15-2005, 04:16 AM
Or you could give hints until we do guess. Because I have no idea what it could be. Pokerap is the only thing I could think of but you already said that was wrong. :oops:

Well, since no one guess...

The answer is that those are the Pokemon mentioned in the Polkamon song that played in the credits of the second movie (Pokemon the Movie 2000). No Spicy points to give out this time!

Round three will be underway once I get the lists!

Hoenn Mirror Girl

Just to let everyone know, if Thanatos doesn't send me his list for Salty and Bitter by the end of this weekend, then I'll make the lists myself.

SPICY HINT
Kiryuu: [Stands before a crowd of trainers, eyeing them as he cracks his knuckles.] "All of you, try attacking me at the same time!"

male trainer 1: "Heh, you're pretty stupid." [Turns to the other trainers.] "You heard him! He'll have less of a chance if we all attack together! Release as many Pokemon as you feel you can command!"

male trainer 2: "Gotcha. Go, Sawamuraa! Beat that Kimori until he's senseless!" [Tosses down a Monster Ball that releases a white light that forms into a Sawamuraa.]

Sawamuraa: "Mura!" [Starts running towards Kiryuu.]

crowd: [Toss Monster Balls into the air.] "Let's go!"

[A flurry of Monster Balls open up and release several white lights. A Ringuma, a Pukurin, a Kairikii, a Zangoose, a Kodora, and a Yanyanma all form from them.]

Sawamuraa: "Muraaaaa!" [Jumps up and dives towards Kiryuu with his leg extended outwards.]

Kiryuu: [Smirks.] "Heh!"

[Right as Sawamuraa's about to connect, Kiryuu roles out of the way, and Sawamuraa ends up landing on the ground. Sawamuraa looks behind himself to see the Kimori standing a couple meters away.]

Sawamuraa: [Lowers eyelids in anger.] "Mu... MURAAAAA!!!" [Kicks out its right leg, which quickly begins to extend more than its usual length.]

[Kiryuu drops backwards before he's kicked, then he grabs the leg that's extending above him.]

Sawamuraa: "Mura?"

[Kiryuu stands up and starts spinning around while swinging Sawamuraa, whose leg causes him to extend from his arms and strike down some of the human bystanders. After a while of swinging, Kiryuu lets go, causing the Sawamuraa's body to go flying in the direction of all the trainers' Pokemon. All of them quickly get out of the way except for Kodora, who's just barely missed as Sawamuraa's extended leg grazes the top of its spikes. Sawamuraa crashes through a window.]

male trainer 2: "Waah!" [Immediately runs to the broken window and holds out a Monster Ball.] "Return!" [Peaks head and arm out the window and points the ball downwards as it shoots out a red beam that hits the plummeting Sawamuraa and converts it to a red light that goes back into the ball. Sighs a breath of relief.]

Defense - 2 tries left

Here's another hint.

You start out with the first two, get the third as a gift during the game, and the Japanese players get the last two via a bonus disk.

That what it says in the rules:

You have three guesses per flavor, and once you make a guess in that flavor, you're stuck with it unless you get it right. If you get the theme of that listing correct, you get to make the next list for that flavor for the next round and get to guess at the others in the current round, but if you guess wrong all three times, then that listing for that flavor will be dropped and you have to wait until the next round, so be careful!

All of them are the odd ones out because you don't get them like you get the others in a certain game.
