Scavengers Ladder Cycles

Have a good day!

Hello! Originally founded in 2013 by stellar user Joim, the Scavengers Room on Pokémon Showdown hosts scavenger hunts of all topics around the clock. These question-solving games test the competitors' searching and solving skills as well as their knowledge. Users earn points from solving and creating these hunts to reach the top of our ladder cycles, held twice-monthly.

----------​

The biggest point totals come from official hunts, led by room staff members and scheduled on this thread. Officials award points to all solvers, ranging from 30 points for the winner all the way on down to 2 consolation points for finishing outside of the top 6. The three fastest solvers of a conventional official hunt also have the opportunity to earn 10 extra BLITZ points if they finish within 1 minute of the hunt's start.

Officials also come in both larger and smaller varieties, with our large "special style" officials offering bigger point totals than normal, and our spontaneously hosted "mini" officials offering half the number of points at each placing as normal officials.

While official hunts are the top prizes, non-official hunts offer modest point totals for both their creators and solvers, and because these hunts are much more frequent, these points add up quickly.

----------​

The first ladder cycle of each month ends at noon (ET) of the 16th of each month. The second ladder cycle then begins, lasting until noon (ET) of the first day of the next month. At that point the next month's first cycle begins.

The top players from each ladder cycle are recorded on this thread and and earn special mentions in the room itself. Any users who average a top five placing in any two consecutive cycles will also receive a nomination for Room Voice.

To check out the ongoing cycle's leaderboard, use the command /scavtop when in the Scavengers room. For a record of past ladders, check the Past Ladders below, or check out the ladder archive section of the Scavengers website.

----------​

To find out more about Scavs, our website offers in-depth info and resources for new and veteran scavengers alike.

Septermber 2022 Twist: Scavengers Feud: After finishing an official, you can PM the host an answer for each question that you think will be the most common incorrect answer given by other players. You get a point for each one that you guess correctly.

The ladder twist chosen by staff for the month of June is: Team Scavengers: Scavengers will be hosting a team competition each weekend this month! (Note that under our new system, our official twists will last for both cycles of a month before being replaced.)

Welcome to the new ladder cycle system, everyone!
(this post will seem less repetitive once we get to July and the twist in the op changes)

Interestingly the jump start didn't change placings at all; all it did was make ace look like a speed demon (which they might be tbh)
A serebii page used to have locations for all Pokemon in one spot, but got changed between the creation and qc'ing of the hunt and the actual hosting. apologies as this made solving q2 a decent bit more tedious :(

Reserving a Team Scavengers official at 6:30 PM GMT (2:30 PM EST), QCed by Celesteeal and Gallant's Pear, hope to see you there!

Results!
1st place: Heroic Professor [11:57].
(Heroic Tobias + Prof Sapling)
2nd place: Daryx [29:48]. (Darth + Devoxys)
3rd place: B Button League [38:01]. (111ace111 + TurtalKatThing)
Consolation Prize: Shadoweavile [43:53] (Shadoweavile + pokemonvortex), pokemon username gang [46:31] (p0ip0le + KingChandelure) , the most terrible puns [50:38] (Cheese555 + shatterene) , pick a good one o.o [52:17] (c.kilgannon + tidal otter)

This official was themed around Quartets, 4 terms linked to each other, with the 4th term being the answer.
1) Q1. Out of abilities that have a unique starting letter (shared with no other ability), this one is the longest by character count. Q2. This signature ability has the same overworld effect as two non signature abilities exclusive to Fire Type Pokemon. Q3. This ability was changed in Generation VIII to have its effect also apply when an opponent activates a certain ability. [Water Compaction]
This was Justified, Steam Engine and Rattled, all being abilities that activate when damaged by a move of a certain type. Water Compaction rounds off this list.
2) Q1. This physical move (other than Focus Punch itself) can have its text appear before Focus Punch's, when used in the same turn. Q2. This move that does not result in the user's HP loss can lose all of its PP in a single use, in a Triples battle with 5 Pokemon with Pressure . (excluding Max/Z-Moves/Sketch) Q3. This is the move with the highest base power a Rival has special dialogue when using it. [Mist Ball]
Beak Blast, Searing Shot, Pyro Ball, all unique moves blocked by Bulletproof, rounded off by Mist Ball.
3) Q1. This is the last Pokemon alphabetically that requires the least amount of loops to catch, in Pokemon Ranger. Q2. This Pokemon part of a three stage line could hold an item to teach Ice Punch when transferred from its original generation to a future one. Q3. This Pokemon on Bulbapedia is stated to have a signature move for three generations more than its evolution, which debuted in the same generation as it. [Plusle]
Seedot, Horsea and Meowth; all Pokemon received in In-game trades in Emerald, with Plusle being the final answer.

Thanks for participating, hope you had fun!

Solution:
1) In Pokemon Sword and Shield, there's an unused trainer class who has this character's model and texture wearing shorts and will be in T-pose stance when hacked into the game. [rose / chairman rose]
2) This Pokemon in Pokemon Sword and Shield has a fully modeled and rendered inner body but can't be seen due to being covered by its skin. [applin]
3) In Pokken Tournament, there was a glitch where a support move doesn't appear when another support move is active. Name both moves alphabetically. [follow me snarl]


May the Pyuks be with you
