Consolation Prize to: N/A
Solutions: 110, Masuda, Shattered Psyche
1. If all the Pokemon that could learn Tail Slap used Tail Slap, hitting five times for each tail, it would hit an opponent this many times (include Smeargle, exclude any and all forms).
2. This person credited with the creation of the Pokemon anime has the longest Japanese name (answer with his or her last name).
3. Out of all the attacking Psychic-type moves that can be used by Pokemon that learn Psychic Terrain, this one can potentially deal the most damage without any stat boosts.

Congrats to all finishers! I thought this would be easy and have 10+ finishers (again), but I guess not (again). ;; Oh well maybe next time.

This wonder key that appears in a Pokemon Rumble Game must be used to progress through the game. However, this key also winds Pokemon up the slowest, making it a detriment to the player. (Include "key" in your answer.| Bent Key| This PokeStar Studios movie is the only one the player does not need to complete in order to get a Black or White trainer card.| Brycen-Man Strikes Back Harder| There is a base payout for blacking out in the Pokemon series depending on how many badges you have in your possession.
