    [​IMG]OM Trivia!!![​IMG]

    I thought it would be fun to introduce a trivia game to the OM section of the forums to stir up interest in the many new metagames popping up over the last few months. I've been hanging around OM ever since I got into BH and so many fun and exciting new ways to play are now available.

    But some of them slip away to page 2. :(

    So here is a little trivia game to rekindle interest and introduce you to some new OMs.

    [​IMG]Rules: (simple)
    • PM me your answers with reasons why.
    • Post so I know you finished and I can make sure your PM is in my inbox. Write something like 'done' or 'finished' in this thread.
    • !Don't put your answers in this thread!
    • Have fun! And try out new OMs.

    The answers are scattered about in the OM subforum so go sniff them out. The clues have to do with common strategies, popular Pokemon, or sets in that metagame. If you're having difficulties, trying chatting in the #othermetas irc or check out Joim's Lab for help.

    Example:
    Clue: Beware Groudon's Nature Power.
    Answer: Balanced Hackmons! Because Groudon often runs Prankster and Nature Power turns into Earthquake on Wifi/PS. (easy)

    Here we Gogoat!
    1. Besides Levitate, Unown now has 28 different abilities.
    2. Only Rapid Spinners: floating doll, Christmas bird, ground shrew, spinning teddy bear, quick sea star, jeweled jellyfish.
    3. Hazards don't exist. The Hitmons have gone special. Musharna likes to headbutt.
    4. Terrakion: There is no escape.
    5. "Sun Offense is fucking borked lol." You mean like Victreebel, Sawsbuck, Exeggutor?
    6. Curses, it just keeps getting faster!
    7. Belly Drum+Flame Orb+Mud Slap+Substitute=viable strategy
    8. Probopass fears the amazing dual STAB of Swellow, who is afraid of Caterpie.
    9. The Regis rule until Cobalion says hello.
    10. Is Sunkern still the worst Pokemon? Negative.


    Deadline: Close of day 5/23 Pacific.
    Winner(s) with the most correct out of 10: Gets? Maybe a fun PRIZE [​IMG]
    (Ok, probably nothing but bragging rights...)

    Have fun!
