QC 1: GMeme
QC 2: Dylas

Second: 3.14dgeot-Mega
Third: Meicoo
Fourth: Gallant Spear
Fifth: Spooktune
Sixth: BigPimpin12

Huge thank you to Rory Mercury for hosting at the last minute!

Questions + Answers:

1: The first English interjection used in Pokemon Adventures is an orthographic neighbor of this ability - Gooey
2: Of all the pokemon that weigh 10 times as much as Goomy, which pokemon has super-effective STAB against Goomy? - Sneasel
3: Of all the moves known by the pokemon in the same Event wherein you can acquire a Goomy, which one has the highest base power? - Hurricane

Q1 explanation: The first interjection used is the word, "Fooey." Orthographic neighbors are words that are almost the same, but differ by one letter, such as "cat" and "hat." Fooey is an orthographic neighbor of the ability, "Gooey."
