Experimental Scavengers Official Puzzle Hunt! It will be hosted August 24th at 2 PM GMT (which is 10 AM East Coast time, 7 AM West Coast, 3 PM United Kingdom). I hope to see you there, it will be a lot of fun!

Inspired by Puzzle Hunts like this one. If you want to get a feel for the type of questions, you could try those puzzles.

QC Andrew and lovemathboy!

^ Happened! Special thanks to LittEleven for helping with hints after I had to go, and I hope you enjoyed it! Also a shoutout to smii for completing it without any hints, whereas others generally used upwards of 5.

The official scavenger hunt was ended automatically. 1st place: smii [58:34]. 2nd place: LittEleven [01:49:45]. 3rd place: GuiShark [01:56:37]. 4th place: Ilikebugs [02:02:44]. 5th place: powergo [02:10:34]. Consolation Prize: 111ace111 [02:23:24]

1) Puzzle One: The More, The Merrier
[Collector]
2) Puzzle Two: An Album of Memories
[Madame X]
3) Puzzle Three: A Flip Flop
[Gladion]
4) Metapuzzle: Ballin'
[Lana]

1) Puzzle One: The More, The Merrier [Collector]
2) Puzzle Two: An Album of Memories [Madame X]
3) Puzzle Three: A Flip Flop [Gladion]
4) Metapuzzle: Ballin' [Lana]

I'll give a quick explanation of what you were supposed to do...
1) Each Pokemon shares one letter, their common ground. The word "character" was also chosen to refer to the letter.
Cubone - Scraggy => C.
Crobat - Shelgon => O.
Doing this for each one gives the answer: "COLLECTOR".

2) The flavor text here majorly hinted towards music, especially albums. Particularly, those of the "Popular Queen" -> "Queen of Pop", meaning Madonna. You can fill in all her albums to get "THE MISSING ONE" as a phrase in the darkened spots. The missing album is "MADAME X". If you did not recognise it was Madonna's, you could try to do some character analysis, try to find some phrases and work from there. Finally, the Greek characters being in alphabetical order shows that they're not significant in what they represent - they are simply placeholders for letters that map to them 1-by-1.

3) On first sight, this seems a lot like Voltorb Flip, with the Voltorb and "Flip" being in the title. This is correct, as it is a Voltorb Flip grid. After finishing the puzzle, one must convert the numbers (with Voltorb as 0) from base 4 to base 10, and then find the Pokemon with those Pokedex numbers. These are all Gladion's Pokemon in one of his Pokemon battles, so "GLADION" is the answer.

4) A nice, relatively simple ending! Most people recognised that turning Collector, Madame and Gladion into a relation with Pokeball's was that they each use one of these. The Net Ball would be left, and is only used by Lana, and thus the final answer is "LANA".
