2) Excluding Smeargle, a certain move went from being learned by 2 Pokemon to being learned to being learned by 32 Pokemon, of which 10 are Fairy-Type and 1 (who itself is not) has a Fairy-type form. These two Pokemon trainers used that move in the anime (alphabetical order). [Aria Merilyn]

Of all Pokemon that learn the move and share at least 1 type with that Pokemon, 15 are monotyped. 12 of these 15 Pokemon share the Pokemon's primary type, the other 3 share the secondary type with the Pokemon.

The ladder twist for the month of January will be: Close Call: If you finish an official within 1 minute of the first finisher, you get equal points to first place! (This twist does not apply to mini officials.)

As a reward for winning the December Ladder, this twist was chosen by Christmace. As this is a repeat of a past twist, it is not worth the typical 5 points for submitting a valid twist, nor the additional 30 for submitting the winning twist. However, other valid twists submitted but not chosen are still worth 5 points each (with a maximum of 20 points earnable), so for a full list of users who earned head-start points for submitting valid twists:
computerwizard8800: 5
mynomeisgr: 5
smii: 5
For more details on how to get these points, see the last page here: Scavengers Update: September 2018, and feel free to ask me any questions!

Resolve to win the January Ladder!

Lastly, big congratulations to super_mii2 (smii) and Tapler on becoming our newest Room Voices!
