Second Place: Illusio

Fourth Place: 102112I1
Fifth Place: kevinrocks
Consolation Prize to: No one
Solutions: masquerainpelipper, 36 (8), 2017combee

1. Pre-Pokemon bank, these two fully-evolved Pokemon can be used to legally breed on all of Mareanie’s Egg Moves. List in alphabetical order.
2. In an SOS battle, how many Attack EVs would a Bagon with Pokerus and holding a Power Band gain from defeating 2 Mudbray? Format in digits, e.g 1, 11, 111
3. A common way of obtaining shiny Pokemon is by TSV hatching, so if the 4-digit Trainer Shiny Value (TSV) of the trainer is identical to the 4-digit Egg Shiny Value (ESV) of the Egg, the hatched Pokemon will be shiny. By looking at information of Alex’s ingame team here: http://pastebin.com/U27Jkch4, what is Alex’s 4-digit TSV, and therefore which Pokemon from this list: http://pastebin.com/vcyDLXKH will be shiny when hatched by Alex? Format as [XXXX][Pokemon]

Q1: http://prntscr.com/emx6vb screenshot proudly presented by TheWhoDoctor, from Bulbapedia.
Pelipper is obviously one of the answers. Why Quagsire and Greninja do not qualify is because they are not available Pre-Bank. Ash-Greninja cannot breed. Surskit can evolve.

Q2: http://www.trainertower.com/ev-training-hotspots-in-pokemon-sun-moon/
Power Band was intentionally added as a diversion. It does not add Attack EVs at all. So the relevant calculation is:

Defeating a Pokémon that yields 1 EV

  • With Power Item + SOS Battle: 18 EVs
18 x 2 (I asked for 2 Mudbray) = 36 EVs.

Ok, made a mistake:

SOS + Pokerus = 1 x 2 (SOS) x 2 (Pkrs) = 4
4x2 = 8

Q3: Everything else with a TID not 'Alex' is a diversion. So are 90% of the details. Just zoom in to OT, TID and ESV.

- Toxapex, with OT: Alex, TID: 047867, is a self-caught, non-shiny Pokemon. Therefore, it being non-shiny indicates that 0465 is not the correct TSV.

- Meowth (Shiny), with OT: Alex, TID: 274568, is hatched by another Alex, as you can tell the TID is different.

- Popplio (Shiny), with OT: Alex, TID: 047867. It shares both OT and TID with the Toxapex and details listed at the top of the pastebin. Therefore, this is a Pokemon that has been TSV hatched by (the correct) Alex.

Ctrl-F Popplio's TSV, 2017, into the second sheet.

Grats to all finishers, thanks to GoodMorningEspeon and Rory Mercury for QCing and Rory Mercury for hosting. Sorry to everyone who tripped on Q2 bc I'm bad.
