Question 13 presented users with this picture:

After filling in the answers from each of the two hunts (or however many answers a solver might have), each line between the first two columns pairs up two answers. For example, Q3 of Hunt 1 pairs to Q1 of Hunt 2, forming the pair HYPNO'S CROWD CONTROL DECK and ALT ROCKY RANGE. After examining a few pairs like this, solvers may notice that each of these pairs form two out of three parts of a well-known phrase or set: for example, the above example produces HYPNO'S CROWD CONTROL DECK and ALT ROCKY RANGE to form two parts of the common keyboard shortcut CONTROL ALT DELETE. This pair links to a row of length 6 in the "Answer" grid, which is just enough to fill in DELETE! Filling in all of these answers and reading down the letters placed along the green line gives the final answer TRIPLE THREAT.

Below is the filled grid:


The sets, in final answer order:
  • CONTROL, ALT, DELETE
  • BLOOD, SWEAT, (and) TEARS
  • DIAMOND, PEARL, PLATINUM
  • (the) GOOD, (the) BAD, (and the) UGLY
  • BUBBLES, BLOSSOM, BUTTERCUP
  • PAST, PRESENT, FUTURE
  • GAME, SET, MATCH
  • STOP, DROP, (and) ROLL
  • BREAKFAST, LUNCH, DINNER
  • SOLID, LIQUID, GAS
  • CHIKORITA, CYNDAQUIL, TOTODILE

The ladder twist for the month of November will be an old favorite: Every regular official will consist of four questions! As such, the Blitz period will be extended to 80 seconds! (This twist does not affect mini-officials.)

As a reward for winning the Spooktober Ladder, this twist was chosen by dangerdogs from the submissions. 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:
aichoozyu: 20
shrugs and shrubs: 20
smii: 5
zacians: 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!

Speed past the competition on the November Ladder!

Lastly, big congratulations to 111ace111 on Room Moderator and Pants (zacians) on a return to room staff!

Greetings, Scavenger. We have heard of a state-of-the-art group of Internet users that have exceptional abilities in Pokémon trivia, puzzles, and data collection. As such, we have come to enlist you in a mission of national importance and utmost secrecy. We have received reports regarding an illegal underground trade happening very soon, so this completing this mission is an urgent matter. We have received an anonymous tip stating that the information can be found on a website, but we are unsure of the name. We know it is a Weebly website without its own domain, and we know that it's "[Someone]'s Decor" and has an address of "[someone]sdecor.weebly.com". The anonymous tip told us that the [someone] is a first name that is the same English voice actor of Ash's Gible in the Pokémon anime. Report your findings to us with "/scavenge [Someone]" and head to the website to await further instructions.|Tom

Nice job, Scavenger! Do not be fooled by appearances; there is definitely something illegal going on with this website. We just need to crack the secret. We've received another anonymous tip in the form of a haiku: "Three lonely flowers, rising up from the bottom, secret in footer." The ending isn't very graceful, but we won't complain. See if it leads anywhere (maybe an image, perhaps?) and report back to us with "/scavenge [findings]" after deciphering anything you find.|Timburr

Timburr, huh? Hm... well, it was from an image with two people in it, so it might actually be a name: Tim Burr. Is there anywhere you can input a name? Make sure it's capitalized correctly with only one space and no other characters. If you mess up, you'll probably be able to input it again, though. Maybe we'll actually find out some logistics of the deal, such as the in-between or someone else. Remember, report your findings with "/scavenge [findings]" when you have something.|Painter Espeon

First official on this Friday, 1 AM IST! (For other timezones, uhh, it's Thursday, 2:30 PM EDT; or Thursday, 7:30 PM GMT) QCs by the penguin Andy Snype and the hosting hunt queen c.kilgannon!


The official scavenger hunt was ended automatically.
1st place: Litt♥Eleven [05:23].
2nd place: Merlee [06:01].
3rd place: 111ace111 [06:05].
4th place: Snecko [07:24].
5th place: Christmas [09:56].
Consolation Prize: Elgino ♫ [11:09], Aichoozyu [13:05], Prof. Sapling [19:38]

Solution:
1) If the player has a certain Pokémon in their team, and they visit a place, a mysterious person will attack them with a screeching growl. In the resulting battle, the player battles a certain Pokémon (A). There is a card called B's A, where B is a possible ability of A. What is the English translation of the move on this card? [Crisis Claw]
2) On a quiet little island, a certain trainer gives out two items in B/B2, and two different items in W/W2, after being defeated. However, they cannot be battled unless the player shows them a certain Pokémon from their party. In ascending order, list the possible amounts of money that can be won by defeating them. [1392, 1632, 1872]
3) In a certain Gen V location, a Pokémon can be encountered in the overworld and battled once a week. The gender of this Pokémon depends on the version of the game being played. The Pokémon can be found in this location in BW, but not B2W2. [Driftveil City / Driftveil]
4) A certain TCG main expansion had cards for both Jellicent and Zoroark. Coincidentally, the Japanese name for the expansion could have allowed a Genesect's Techno Blast to change type if it existed as an item in the main-series games. Alphabetically list the Theme Decks of this expansion. [Explosive Edge, Voltage Vortex]

Congratulations to all finishers for, uhh, finishing!
