7) Monotype Pokemon of these types cannot be hit super-effectively by Nature Power in any Generation. [fairy normal]
8) These abilities function differently depending on a Pokemon’s level. [pickup schooling]
9) This status move can force an opposing Pokemon to switch out, even if they have used Ingrain or have a substitute active, as long as they have a certain ability. [parting shot]
10) This unique status move will always cause an opposing Pokemon with a certain unique ability to faint. [lunar dance]
11) In Gen 2, a Pokemon knowing these two moves can theoretically stay asleep indefinitely, without factoring in PP. [rest sleep talk]
12) In Gen II, these nonlegendary/nonmythical Pokemon required the most number of steps to hatch out of all Pokemon that didn’t have any evolutions or pre-evolutions. [lapras snorlax unown]
13) These dual-typed Gen II Pokemon only have one weakness after being hit by Trick-or-Treat. [girafarig igglybuff]
14) These uniquely typed Pokemon without 4x weaknesses belong to the only egg group that contains at least one Pokemon of every type. [kyurem marshadow terrakion volcanion]
15) While not a unique or signature typing, a certain typing introduced in Gen VI is only found within the Undiscovered egg group. What moves do both of the non-forme Pokemon with that typing learn that they are 4x weak to? [phantom force shadow ball]
16) Reaching the edge of the map while riding a Mega Pokemon causes the player to do this maneuver. [immelmann turn]
17) These fully-evolved Pokemon with signature typing can only be hit for 4x type effectiveness by a single move. [crabominable ludicolo sawsbuck]
18) These Pokemon with scary feet are not Bug, Dark, Psychic, Ghost, or Poison type. [gastrodon gyarados]
19) If this Pokemon uses one of its unique moves and it fails for a certain reason, a unique message is displayed in battle text. (Answer with the Pokemon, then the move). [hoopa hyperspace fury]
20) This item, when held by a wild Pokemon, has different effects based on whether or not the encounter is a Single Battle or a Horde/Double/SOS battle. [red card]
21) In Gen VIII, a certain move was changed so that its effect can be stored and occur on a later turn, rather than always occurring immediately. If that effect is stored, it can be used by a Pokemon that is already on the field if they use this move. [ally switch]
22) These Dream World minigames take the longest to play. [Open the treasure box sky race]
23) Lava Plume can activate these Pokemons’ unique abilities in single battles only if the user is not Camerupt-Mega. [drampa golisopod kecleon wimpod]
24) In a 1v1, a Pokemon with either of these abilities is able to damage itself for 75% of its health in a single turn by targeting itself with a certain status move. [libero protean]
25) Due to an interaction between certain moves and its unique ability, this Pokemon will take x16 damage from any move, provided that it was hit by one of those moves beforehand. [mimikyu]
26) This is the highest level ghost type Pokemon that can only be obtained in DPPt (excluding trading) if the game is being played in dual-slot mode (Answer with the Pokemon, followed by the highest level at which it can be obtained). [sableye 34]
27) Last Question! This pair of dual-typed, fully-evolved Pokemon with signature typing in the Galar Pokedex have the exact same set of weaknesses (considering a 2x weakness different from a 4x weakness), despite not sharing a type. [duraludon heliolisk]

One of Gunnermaniac's speedruns led to the use of this trick being prohibited in subsequent runs of that category (for about two years) and the creation of a new category (which no longer exists), as it allowed him to achieve a world record time with a sizeable amount of time saved. (Omit the words "glitch" or "trick" in your answer)|Instant Text;Bike Shop Instant Text
In Generation I, the PP Up that can be sold for a non-zero amount of Pokédollars is stored at this hexadecimal identifier. (Format "0x[value]")|0x32
If its name was not terminated early, the glitch Pokémon in Red/Blue with hexadecimal identifier EC would share the same (constant) readable characters in its name as another glitch Pokémon. The latter glitch Pokémon has two copies of this move from start.|Blizzard
