THE PIKACHU SURVIVOR GAME: ZANY PIKACHU FIESTA ROUND!
Legal Notice: By participating in this game, you subject yourself to total Pikachu insanity and psychosis. Our legal staff hopes you thoroughly enjoy it.
A whopping six rounds later, this crazy game of mine thought up in less than an hour continues to be a PE2K highlight. In Round 5, I totally lost my mind and had a round with a 50 crazy people who were willing to part with their humanity for infinite banner requests. Only one of them walked away still a human. All the rest became a Pikachu.
And I enjoyed that all the way.
Even though this round only has half the people, trust me it will be just as fun and insane as all the other rounds. And as it stands, the Hall of Fame remains as this:
Round 1ís Winner
: May Norman (PE2Kís Fireball!)
Round 2ís Winner
: Chuck Norris (Actually, canceled from overload in capacity.)
Round 3ís Winner
: Knightblazer (Master of the Winz!)
Round 4ís Winner
: Mario (Houston Rocks!)
Round 5ís Winner
: sonickid01 (And now Iím his banner slave!)
Also featured in Round 6 are TOTALLY NEW AVATARS AND BANNERS! Which means none of the old stuff (some of the same Pikachu pictures are used because I totally sapped out even my enormous supply last round!).
Meanwhile, as with the previous five rounds, people who sign up for this need to agree that it's okay for me to change their signature and avatar. If you become a Pikachu in this game, your avatar and banner will be changed to reflect it. Donít worry, most people think I make great banners, and some even join this game just for that. :P
Youíve survived fevers, colds, and coughs. However, when Pika Flu hit your town, this was definitely something your immune system wasnít ready for.
The city where you live was overrun by a strange sickness known as Pika Flu, and the result of catching Pika Flu is finding yourself permanently turned into a Pikachu. To win this game, you need to be the last human standing. If you win this, youíll be able to freely ask for banners from me at any time. You wonít have to put up with the hassles that usually come from request threads. Along with that comes the privilege to laugh at the other 24 people who didnít make it. Ask anyone who has won a round, thatís good fun!
And as Iíve realized throughout the many months, there are plenty of people who really actually enjoy losing at this game and join just to get a cool Pikachu banner and avatar. These people rock. Kudos to all you people, you know Iíve got your avatars and banners ready and waiting.
HOW IT WORKS
When the game starts, everyone gets a number. And then, each day at noon (12 PM EST, or possibly 1 PM if I get a little tied up), a randomized roll is made to see who becomes a Pikachu. If your number is rolled, congratulations! Youíre now a Pikachu! Thatís not a good thing if youíre trying to win though.
Another way that you can become a Pikachu is through Slow Action Pika Flu, which contestants can use against each other to make each other Pikachus outside of the randomized roll. If you are hit with Slow Action Pika Flu, you have three days (exactly 72 hours from when it was contracted) to get a Gold Elixir or Blessed Cure to remove the effect. If you donít get either before the time limit is up, those red cheeks, thunderbolt tail, and shiny black eyes should be a clear indication of what happened.
Meanwhile, to protect yourself against the randomized roll, there are items such as Immunities and Guards that offer protection from it. However, remember that they wonít permanently protect you, their effects wear off and you need a constant income of protection if you want to make it to the end. Also, despite the effect of items, the randomized roll will keep going until someone becomes a Pikachu.
If you want protective items, you need to participate and win challenges, which consist of trivia questions that will come from subjects all over the place. Meanwhile, Blessed Cure challenges are 100% Pokťmon related questions. Thatís the only hint. Also, if an item is pretty powerful, its questions will be harder.
There are two ways to submit answers to these trivia questions. The first and best way is to PM them. The second way is to post them in this thread. Whoever submits the right answers first out of both methods gets the item. Remember to answer fully also, as people in the past have lost out on items for forgetting to put details in their answers. Also, if you submit answers and at least one of them is wrong, Iím only going to tell you your answers are not 100% right. I wonít say which ones, you need to find that out on your own.
In the rare case of two people getting the challenge correct at the exact same time (Its happened before, one PMed and one posted at the exact minute!), there will be a sudden death challenge for the two participants. Only then will you post your answer instead of PMing it. That way, whoever posts the right answers first wins.
Immunities last for a short while, but they give you infinite protection against Pikachu rolls for the time they last. Your number could be rolled a million times, but if you have an active Immunity, youíll be fine. However, once that Immunityís time is up, itís gone, and youíll have to get a new one to continue the effect. Also, Iíll label the days the Immunity will be active. ďACTIVE IMMUNITYĒ means you possess an Immunity that will still protect against future Pikachu rolls. ďEXPIRED IMMUNITYĒ means you had the Immunity for todayís Pikachu roll, but itís been used up and it wonít be there tomorrow. Also, toward the end of the game, Immunities become more powerful and valuable than they were in the beginning.
Also, it is possible to extend an already existing Immunity by earning another one.
Ė Weak Immunities protect for one day. Considering there are 24 people in the beginning, these will be next to useless toward the beginning of the game. However, when the numbers start thinning out, expect to see more of them.
Ė Strong Immunities protect for two days. Other than that, they behave like a normal Immunity.
Ė Mega Immunities protect for three days. Some will be offered in the beginning, but later on, they will stop appearing.
Guards have no time limit like Immunities and last with you until you need them. However, they only work once per Guard. If you have a guard and your number is rolled, you will be protected for that one shot. They will save you from becoming a Pikachu as long as you have them with you. It is also possible to have multiple guards.
Ė The Power Guard will protect you from one Pikachu roll. However, if your number is rolled, the Power Guard is used up, and the roll takes place again.
Ė The Avenger Guard will protect you from one Pikachu roll. However, if the Avenger Guard is used, it becomes an Immunity for the day and triggers a second Pikachu roll! Just note, these will only be offered in the beginning. Toward the endgame, I will stop having challenges for them.
In terms of Guards and Immunities, the hierarchy goes like this:
Immunities > Avenger Guards > Power Guards
Which means your Immunities will protect Guards, but if you have no Immunities, your Avenger Guards will be used first before your Power Guards are.
These are all fun devices to use against other contestants. If youíre trying to win, why not take a few of them out to make it easier for you?
Spear of Revenge
- This brutal and favorite piece of hardware is known for being a thrill maker. Whoever wins the Spear of Revenge gets to select three people who they think would make really great Pikachus. After theyíve been selected, the next Pikachu roll occurs only between those three people, while everyone else gets to watch the pleasure. However, if any of these three victims have Guards or Immunities, they are still counted. This can
be used to your advantage though if youíre clever with who you pick.
Make sure youíre the one using the Spear of Revenge, not one of the people that are going to become a cute, fuzzy, yellow, electric mouse.
Also, the Spear of Revenge can not be held, it must be used instantly.
Slow Action Pika Flu Syringe
Ė Getting this allows you to give another player Slow Action Pika Flu. Give it to a friend, or an enemy! Theyíll become a cute Pikachu if they donít a Gold Elixir or Blessed Cure in three days time. Also, it must be used instantly, and can not be held to be used later.
Pika Flu Weapons of Mass Destruction
ďOh nuts.Ē ~TVTMaster after using Pika Flu WOMD on himself thinking he could keep it away from other people.
This is the ultimate joy toy for the insane, the psychotic, and the trigger-happy. Itís for those people that love Pikachu almost as much as I do, or just joined for the free Pikachu banner and avatar. Meanwhile, they also get to take out a few others with them.
When you get Pikachu Weapons of Mass Destruction because youíre psychotic or insane, you set off a massive detonation that sends a enormous mushroom cloud of Pika Flu into the air. However, youíre at ground zero, so the first one to become a Pikachu is you. Congratulations. But thatís not all!
You also get to select two others to become Pikachus with you. It also bypasses through all Guards and Immunities due to the MASSIVE exposure. Meanwhile, two others even besides that get Slow Action Pika Flu! Really cool, eh? You know you want it!
Also, as TVTMaster discovered during Round 4, you canít get it to keep it away from other people. Itís also used instantly.
Okay, so you donít want to be a Pikachu after allÖ
But you werenít able to help it, or some mean or nasty psychotic person hit you with Slow Action Pika Flu and youíd like to get rid of it. These are how you get cured!
The Blessed Cure
Ė This is undoubtedly the best item in the game, and itís the only way to get back into the game after becoming a Pikachu. If you win the Blessed Cure, you become human again, and you can get back into the game. Or, if you have Slow Action Pika Flu on you, this will get rid of it just in time.
Also, Blessed Cure Challenges only have Pokťmon-related questions. Thatís the only hint youíll get. Also, you canít participate in a Blessed Cure Challenge unless youíre a Pikachu or have Slow Action Pika Flu on you.
Ė If some nasty person hit you with a Slow Action Pika Flu Syringe or a totally insane psychopath used Pika Flu WOMD and tagged you with Slow Action Pika Flu, this will help bail you out in time. Donít wait too long to get it, or you will become a Pikachu. Also, only people who have Slow Action Pika Flu can participate in Gold Elixir challenges.
WARNING: If you become a Pikachu and you take off your Pikachu banner and avatar, thatís considered forfeiting from the game and you will be unable to come back (Again, itís a part of the game!) And needless to say, I kinda frown upon this. Just keep them on and wait for Blessed Cure challenges. Theyíll come!
And lastly, if you win this massive PSG round, youíll be able to request banners, avatars, buttons, or whatever from me, unchallenged and uncontested. I get lots of demand all the time, and I just canít handle it all. But I will for you if you win this. Also, youíll get to laugh at the 24 Pikachus that this crazy game threw into action. Now who wouldnít want that?
So, ready to gamble your humanity for one heck of a prize? Nowís the time to sign up!
