Scavengers Ladder Cycles

Reserving a fish on Tuesday January 19th at 9pm EST (19th 6pm PST, 20th 2am GMT, 20th 730am IST)! QC'd by DarkShinyGiratina and PartMan, hosted by DarkShinyGiratina.

The official scavenger hunt was ended automatically.
1st place: Merlee [08:27].
2nd place: toxic boosted [08:41].
3rd place: charlier [15:56].
4th place: TurtalKatThing [16:00].
5th place: BubidaJeffery [17:44].
Consolation Prize: Computerwizard8800 [22:19], dot Comfey [23:12], SectoniaServant [28:21], 111ace111 [44:01], QUI?GONT!HEFLY?GON [01:11:33], EsaEevee [01:14:47], CyniCCyndaquiL [01:30:03], ezlaturbo [01:38:12]


1) Fish. List your answers alphabetically for the whole hunt. These are the only moves that the Fish Pokemon share. [Flail, Splash, Tackle]
2) Name all Pokemon that female Fishers use. [Barraskewda, Lanturn, Pyukumuku, Qwilfish]
3) In Pokemon Red/Blue, these Pokemon can be caught in the Celadon Gym. [Goldeen, Magikarp, Poliwag]
Red/Blue glitch allows the player to go fishing in gyms' statues, though it doesn't work in Cerulean, Saffron and Cinnibar. Additionally, tihs glitch does not work for Super Rod. Thus, the answers are all possible fishing encounters from Old Rod (magikarp) and Good Rod (Goldeen Poliwag).
Merlee finished first but dipped soon enough that there weren't any twist questions for this official. Nevertheless, congrats to all finishers! Hope you had fun.

Thanks a lot Tapler and LittEleven for the QCs, and LittEleven (and later DarkShinyGiratina) for the host!

Official Hunt Results:

The results are approximate because the hunt was reset around ~60 minutes.

1st place: Ninetales Alolan<3 [01:54:03].
2nd place: 111ace111 [02:11:26].
3rd place: CynicCyndaquil [03:36:17].
4th place: powergo [03:38:39].
5th place: Luca12379 [04:29:16].
6th place: Bronzecrank [04:29:33].
Consolation Prize: None


Q1) Special Agent Ayyeh: Attention Agent Scavenger! I'm Special Agent Ayyeh! The International Police has received top secret information about suspicious activity taking place in the region. The selection of agents for the investigation team was narrowed down to two agents, you and Agent SmartyPants. You need to answer this question to finalize my selection: "Pick any Pokémon that can learn at least one recoil move. No matter which Pokémon you pick or which recoil moves they learn, this is the only recoil move (according to Bulbapedia) in the main series that will not be resisted by any such Pokémon." [Struggle]
Q2) Special Agent Ayyeh: Good job Agent! Since Agent SmartyPants could not answer the question, you have been selected to accompany me during this mission! We will now go to Record Inc. [redacted] Division to investigate the records about this place. (You and Special Agent Sergeant start rummaging through the records of the place. You slowly understand that the records contain information about each structure in the place. These structures are categorized by the eight sectors each structure belongs to, and the information about each sector is recorded by a different person. At first, you do not find anything suspicious. ``/scavenge Welcome to "The Struggle Odyssey".`` to continue.) [Welcome to "The Struggle Odyssey".]
Q3) [Excadrill] This is the first Pokémon owned by Ash whose egg was shown in a flashback. [Froakie]
Q4) [Swanna] Name the only Pokémon-specific item in Explorers of Sky that boosts only the higher attacking stat of a Pokémon with a unique typing that resists Thousand Arrows and is listed in-game to be an item for the same Pokémon. [Tort-Horn]
Q5) [Watchog] Name the first word of the alphabetically first two-word item that allows Venomoth to use a 60 BP Physical Poison-type move in Generation V. [Kebia]
Q6) [Haxorus] In the Kalosian location that the player can learn the final skating trick, this the only Trainer that uses at least one Pokémon with no resistances. (Answer without the Trainer class.) [Slater]
Q7) [Zebstrika] Bulbapedia falsely claims that a certain two-word item is the only item in the main games that becomes permanently unobtainable specifically when you beat the Champion for the first time. (According to Bulbapedia, if you are defeated in the Champion battle, you can still obtain it. However, during Teutonic✠Squire's private playtesting, the item never became unobtainable even if Teut beat the Champion.) Answer with the item's first word. [Spelon]
Q8) [Lillipup] In Pokémon TCG, this Poké-Power can remove an opponents Lv. X card from the bench and return it to their deck once per turn. [Level-Down]
Q9) [Leavanny] In the episode a certain two-word item debuted, an elderly woman is stated to be able to distinguish between two Pokémon from their way of collecting said item. Answer with the first word of said item. [Aspear]
Q10) [Haxorus] Quite a lot of TCG Attacks later appeared as moves in the main-series games. This is the Romanized Japanese name (according to Bulbapedia) of the chronologically first card that has no weaknesses and such an Attack that debuted outside of the Base Set. [Ghost]
Q11) You ask Special Agent Ayyeh what these Pokémon are. "Oh, they just belong to the record-keepers of these sectors. Don't you recognize them? We used to be Ace Trainers after all!" Taking another look at the records, you can't help but feel that something is off. "Don't you see, Agent Scavenger?" he says. "These sectors are not placed in the order they should be!" You realize that someone has been trying to unsuccessfully tamper with these records. "This must be the work of the evil 'Berry Bros.'", Special Agent Ayyeh says. "Fortunately they left their marks everywhere. Can you figure out the members of the 'Berry Bros'?" You realize that you also need to put the sectors in the correct order. In the correct order of their respective sectors, which record-keepers are the members of the 'Berry Bros'? [Lenora, Burgh, Elesa]
Q12) With a brilliant deduction, you successfully arrest Lenora, Burgh, and Elesa for involvement with the 'Berry Bros.' Several years pass. Special Agent Ayyeh has retired, and you have taken his position. You are informed of a fire that broke recently at the place you had investigated years ago. Said fire has caused heavy damage to the place. Once again, this time as Special Agent Scavenger, you need to investigate the records of the same place to understand more about the fire. To handle this mission, you head to Record Inc. once more. ``/scavenge You are alone this time.`` to continue. [You are alone this time.]
Q13) [Torkoal] Name the only person who can hand you an Accessory obtainable from the Massage Girl in DPPt (except Massage Girl herself). [Keira]
Q14) [Torkoal] Thanks to their Abilities, the effectiveness of moves of certain types on some Pokémon is an odd prime number. Name the lightest such Pokémon. [Paras]
Q15) [Torkoal] This is the only male main traveling companion (according to Bulbapedia) of Ash that is canonically confirmed by the anime to be the same age as Ash. [Goh]
Q16) [Torkoal] A certain regional Professor is mentioned in-game to have studied under another regional non-Galarian Professor. Given that both professors are from the core games, this is the surname of the chronologically first voice actor that voiced the older Professor in the Brazilian Portuguese dub of the anime. [Lopes]
Q17) [Torkoal] Out of the people participating in the Masters Division of the 2020 Latin America International Championships, this is the surname of the person that won the highest cash prize. [Baek]
Q18) [Torkoal] This non-Elite Four Trainer uses a Pokémon in the Battle Villa in Pokémon Masters EX whose STABs are both super-effective (in the main games) against the non-forme Pokémon featured in their sync pair. [Thorton]
Q19) [Torkoal] This is the only Pokémon caught in capture tutorials whose base Special Attack is strictly higher than its base Attack. [Ralts]
Q20) [Torkoal] This is the longest song (by track length) on the newest album of The Afters. [Well Done]
Q21) (Well done indeed, for making it this far!) All of the sectors have been damaged by the fire, and they needed to be recorded all over again. Apparently, the damage was so vast that the place is now unrecognizable, with several structures in it being completely burned down. Furthermore, the new record-keeper, the well-spirited but clumsy Flannery, has messed her job up and mixed up the order of the sectors. However, you are sure that no structure was recorded outside of its sector. On the other hand, the evidence shows that this fire was no accident, and you need to find the singular arsonist responsible! You can feel the arsonist laughing at you behind what he has burned down, but thanks to your ESP101 training, you know that you have enough information to find out his identity. Who is the arsonist? [Ollie]

Q1) Struggle is literally resisted by no Pokémon. The rest of the information doesn't matter.
Q4) This page contains all the information that you need other than the fact that Torterra and Shedinja are the only Pokémon that qualify.
Q5) Natural Gift is the move.
Q6) The location is "Lost Hotel".
Q9) The woman is a character of the day named Abigail.
Q10) The Attack is Nightmare. The card is Haunter.
Q14) Dry Skin on Paras and Parasect is x5 Fire weakness; Solid Rock on Rhyhorn family is x3 Water and x3 Grass weakness.
Q16) The Professors are Rowan and Sycamore. Rowan is the older one of the two.

Q11) The members of the 'Berry Bros.' are the owners of the Pokémon who label the questions (i.e. records of sectors) whose answers are Berries. The Berries are Aspear, Spelon, and Kebia. Thus, the Pokémon are Watchog, Zebstrika, and Leavanny. But who are the owners of these Pokémon? Furthermore, what is "the correct order"? That is answered by looking at all of the eight Pokémon. These Pokémon are the ace Pokémon (Hence the "Ace Trainer" comment of Special Agent Ayyeh) of 8 Gym Leaders from Generation V games. Lillipup-Watchog-Leavanny-Zebstrika-Excadrill-Swanna-Haxorus-Haxorus belong to Cheren-Lenora-Burgh-Elesa-Clay-Skyla-Drayden-Drayden/Iris respectively. The solver then needs to order these owners according to their Gym order in either BW or B2W2. Cheren is the first Gym Leader in B2W2; Lenora is the second Gym Leader in BW; Burgh is the third Gym Leader in both BW and B2W2; ...; Drayden is the seventh Gym Leader in B2W2; and Drayden/Iris is the eighth Gym Leader in BW. Thus, the owners of Leavanny, Zebstrika, and Watchog are Burgh, Elesa, and Lenora. However, the correct Gym Leader order forces the hunter to answer with [Lenora, Burgh, Elesa]. This order is super important, as it is integral to solving q21.


Q21) God, this one's a DOOZY. So, since every record keeper is Flannery this time, the hunter has initially no idea what the order of the sectors are. However, the hunter knows that these sectors are the same sectors from before, and the final question tells them the following:

No structures (1) were recorded (2) outside of their sectors (3), just some of them having burnt down (4), and the rest being re-recorded. (5) (i.e.
No new letters (1) are present (2) in the individual answers (3), just some of the letters were removed (4), with the rest being re-arranged. (5))

Now, since the arsonist is "behind what he has burned down", the hunter needs to find what has burned down (i.e. which letters are missing). Since the hunter has the records of the sectors before the fire (answers to q3-10), he/she needs to match the old records and the new records (i.e. q3-10 answers and q13-20 answers) correctly first. Upon close inspection, the hunter will realize that the answers of q13-20 are just re-arranged versions of q3-10. The correct matching is below, in a random order (The capitalized letters in q3-10 in the left column are missing in q13-20 in the second column):

Code:
FrOakie->keira
tort-hoRn->thorton
kebIa->baek
slatEr->ralts
speloN->lopes
leVel-down->well done
aspEar->paras
ghoST->goh
But it's not over yet; the hunter also needs to put these answer pairs in the correct order, which was found in q11. There are two possibilities for the correct order because of the two Haxorus. Both are listed below:

Code:
leVel-down->well done
kebIa->baek
aspEar->paras
speloN->lopes
FrOakie->keira
tort-hoRn->thorton
ghoST->goh
slatEr->ralts
Code:
leVel-down->well done
kebIa->baek
aspEar->paras
speloN->lopes
FrOakie->keira
tort-hoRn->thorton
slatEr->ralts
ghoST->goh
The missing letters (i.e. what has burned down) in the correct order form two possible phrases: either "Vienforste" or "Vien Forest". A simple Bulbapedia search will reveal that there is no such thing as a "Vienforste". However, Vien Forest is a real forest in the region of Almia, and it actually was burned down in Pokémon Ranger: Shadows of Almia. And who was the arsonist in that game? A random guy nicknamed Ollie.

Note: Since this question looked so hard to us, we intentionally left Ollie's gender in the question, hoping it would help somehow.

Huge congratulations to all finishers of The Struggle Odyssey!

For the twist, grats Ninetales Alolan<3 on being able to provide the question for the Top Tier Distraction twist in time!

Thank you all for playing!
The hunt can be seen here: https://pastebin.com/FYtPtM2S

Alternatively:
Q1. A certain Octillery TCG card was used in 3 WC decks (and many other competitve decks) across two years thanks to this ability it has. Abyssal Hand
Q2. Abyss is also the name of a theme deck that came out in a certain expansion. What stage 2 card can be found in the other theme deck that came out in the same expansion? Only list the Pokémon name. Nidoking
Q3. Throughout competitive PTCG history, drawing cards has always been integral to victory. Not all Pokémon cards giving access to card draw are born equally though. Give the name, expansion and set number of the card that allows you to draw 6 cards, but only if you have 1 card in your hand AND 2 other (very) specific cards and this card on your bench. Unown O (Secret Wonders 70)

For the twist, Pepsi man 2 was able to provide the question for the Top Tier Distraction twist in time! There were some issues with it that I initially overlooked so 2 points will be deducted from him. Any answer that works has been accepted.

Top Tier Distraction Question Results:

6) A Pokedex entry of this Pokemon mentions Fahrenheit in it, but would still be correct if it mentioned Celsius instead due to mentioning a temperature where the scales coincide. [Seel]
7) This Pokemon present on a mainline Pokemon game's box art has a signature status move, which it can use in the same game. [Xerneas]
8) A certain Pokemon's German name starts with an uncapitalized letter, unlike all other Pokemon. This trainer uses the final evolved form of that Pokemon in its debut game at the highest level among all trainers. (Name only) [Drasna]
9) This is the only Pokemon to have dropped by one BL tier (e.g UUBL -> RUBL) twice in consecutive generations since Generation VI. [Kingdra]

15) A certain berry is obtained in a game by saying the words 'CHALLENGE CONTEST' to an NPC. The first three letters of this Pokemon found in the same game are the same as the last three letters of the berry. [Treecko]

17) A certain Psychic-type specialist in Pokemon Ultra Sun/Ultra Moon mega evolves their Pokemon in their second battle versus the player, but cannot in their third battle. After winning the second battle, what item do they give to the player that isn't specific to any Pokemon? [Key Stone]
18) The first 5 letters of a certain Pokemon's Japanese trademarked name is the name of an in-game item whose only value is for being sold. These are the first 5 letters of that Pokemon's English name. [Clamp]
19) In Pokemon Ultra Sun/Ultra Moon, this shop modelled after an Alolan Persian is also named after a Pokemon move. [Switcheroo]
20) This building must be entered to open another building in Generation III, whose music is a remix of that of the S.S. Anne's. [Stern's Shipyard]
21) A certain move in Pokemon Sword/Shield is only learned by 5 Grass-type Pokemon and no other Pokemon. This is the French name of that move. [Tapotige]
22) Looks like there are some creatures hiding in between the previous answers! Once you figure out what they are, what would you call them? https://i.imgur.com/YcXRRID.png // https://prnt.sc/zhpsn7 (This is a meta question, use /viewhunt to see the past answers.) [Spring Ensemble]

Search well to ensure you place in the top of the second cycle!
 
A 4-question official hunt was hosted on Wednesday, 17th February 2021 at 5.00 PM GMT +1 / 7.00 PM GMT +3.

Thanks a lot aQrator and LittEleven for QCs, and aQrator for the host. Thank you so much QUI?GONT!HEFLY?GON for giving me the info about q3 and q1.

The official scavenger hunt was ended automatically.
1st place: Archangel Izra'il [01:56:10].
2nd place: Ninetales Alolan<3 [02:37:06].
3rd place: DarkShinyGiratina [02:42:10].


1) For every Ability recognized by Pokémon Showdown, each Ability is officially assigned an arbitrary and subjective score from -1 to 5. This score is called "rating," and it conveys the effectiveness of the Ability in a competitive Singles Battle. This is the only Ability that has a rating that isn't an integer multiple of 0.5. [No Ability]
2) This is the most amount of percentage recoil damage (down to one decimal point) a Pokémon can legally deal to itself in Turn 1 of a battle that occurs in the main series games that were released before Let's Go Pikachu/Eevee. [23562.0 / 23800.0]
3) Imagine Turn 1 of a battle in Sword and/or Shield. Two Pokémon, named A and B, are sent out as leads. Before either Trainer can select an action (Bag/Run/Fight/Pokémon), A's typing changes twice. Answer with the alphabetically first Pokémon that can be A, then the alphabetically first Pokémon that can be B. [Ditto, Stunfisk-Galar / Ditto, Galarian Stunfisk]
4) Suppose that you are watching a friend's Gen V OU battle that has just started Turn 1. Your friend has 'A' on the field, while the opponent has Azelf with Focus Sash. Your friend switches out 'A' into 'B', while the Azelf uses Taunt. Next turn, B selects a STAB move with fixed base power to use against Azelf, but Azelf switches out to 'C'. C takes some damage from the selected attack on the turn it switches in. Assume that A is holding Leftovers, while B and C are holding Choice items. Just by switching into B, C cuts the EFFECTIVE POWER (not total damage) of the move used by B by over 75%, excluding type weaknesses/resistances, but including all effects from abilities, items, type immunities, field conditions, and/or stat changes (Two examples: C has Intimidate and drops the Attack of B by one stage, or C has Thick Fat and B uses an Ice-type physical move so the Attack of B is cut by 50%.). A, B, and C are fully evolved. In ascending order, list all of the numbers that can be the National Pokédex number of one of A, B, or C. [6 38 186 351 / 006 038 186 351]

q1) https://github.com/smogon/pokemon-showdown/blob/master/data/abilities.ts
q2) Shedinja can OHKO Blissey with Double-Edge. The rest is math. (There are conflicting sources about the recoil percentage of Double-Edge, some say exactly 33/100, others say 1/3.)
q3) "Transform Mimicry changes you to your original un-transformed types."
https://github.com/smogon/pokemon-showdown/blob/master/data/abilities.ts#L2003 (the entry for Mimicry)
https://imgur.com/a/qL6Vtbb
https://www.smogon.com/forums/threa...chanics-research.3655528/page-35#post-8319668
https://www.smogon.com/forums/threa...t-before-posting.3663703/page-30#post-8607532
https://replay.pokemonshowdown.com/gen8balancedhackmons-1279028098
q4) The possible trios are:
- Ninetales, Charizard with Solar Power using Flamethrower, Politoed (Fire gets halved by Rain, loses Solar Power boost and Sun boost. Total: 77.8%)
- Ninetales, Castform-Sunny with Forecast using Flamethrower, Politoed (Fire gets halved by Rain, loses STAB boost (due to Forecast) and Sun boost. Total: 77.8%)
- Politoed, Castform-Rainy with Forecast using Scald, Ninetales (Water gets halved by Sun, loses STAB boost (due to Forecast) and Rain boost. Total: 77.8%)

The moves can obviously vary for q4.

The twist was cancelled for this official due to technical difficulties.

My first PS account turned 8, so here's a DSG (should I say CSG?) fish at 8 PM Eastern on Feb. 23! QC'd by PartMan and computerwizard8800, thanks guys :>


1st place: acluous ◑_◑ [10:27].
2nd place: 111ace111 [11:03].
3rd place: one for my baby [11:38].
4th place: TurtalKatThing [12:00].
5th place: toxic boosted [12:49].
Consolation Prize: CynicCyndaquil [17:11], BubidaJeffery¿•? [23:37], schaillop ( [35:56], Bronzecrank [01:08:02], NewsDan ^-^ [01:10:50], dot Comfey [01:26:38]


Nobody got twist points since nobody finished a full minute before the next user in the Top 4!

1) This country had an eight year gap between a dubbed season of the Diamond and Pearl anime and its next dubbed anime season. [Romania]
2) Sevii Isle 8 displays the player's location near this area on the Town Map. [Four Island]
3) In Pokemon games, you generally have to defeat 8 gym leaders to move onto the Elite Four. Which of these Gym Leaders, within the first four generations, have dual-typed aces (their highest leveled Pokemon) in their first ever fight which have secondary types that are super effective on the leader's main type? Exclude types that are Super Effective on themselves. (Alpha, Blue has no main type) [Brock Bugsy Erika Gardenia Jasmine]

For Q1, you can Bulba search "eight year" or "eight years", or just check the trivia page for each of the 4 Diamond and Pearl seasons of the anime, and you'll see that the country is Romania.

For Q2, this is what you'll need. You'll find a key quote here: "If the Town Map is opened at Sevii Isles 6, 7, 8, or 9, it displays the player's location as if they were near Four Island."

For Q3, check every gym leader. If their ace is super effective on their specialty type, that's an answer.

Brock: Onix, Ground is SE on Rock
Bugsy: Scyther, Flying is SE on Bug
Erika: Victreebel/Vileplume (it's tied), Poison is SE on Grass.
Gardenia: Roserade, Poison is SE on Grass.
Jasmine: Steelix, Ground is SE on Steel.

Thank you all for coming to DSG Fish #10! Only 477 more to go until DSG Fish #487!

1) This Pokemon TCG attack from Phantom Forces expansion cards becomes an archetype that mainly deals more damage the more Pokemon card with the attack are in the discard pile. [Night March]
2) In Pokemon Mystery Dungeon: Red/Blue Rescue Team, this move doesn't have increased critical hit ratio despite its description saying so. [Karate Chop]
3) This character in a Pokemon side game has 10 big secrets, one of them is he has 4 stomachs like a cow. [Imakuni]

Reserving a fish on Monday Feburary 29th March 1st at 9am EST! QC'd by PartMan and DarkShinyGiratina, hosted by PartMan.

The official scavenger hunt was ended automatically.
1st place: runescape_boy_420 [13:26].
2nd place: Ninetales Alolan<3 [20:30].
3rd place: Qui-Gon the Flygon [24:23].
4th place: adiass [28:46].
5th place: Luca12379 [29:49].
Consolation Prize: Eina Tulle~✽ [33:33], aQrator [38:44], eblurb [41:41], SPIDERZ(*#&$! [42:05], wallape [43:37], NewsDan [44:06], Sir Tetris ⌐▭‿▭ [45:02], WarriorGallade [46:18], CynicCyndaquil [54:11]

1) A certain Ice-type Pokémon shares its height (in inches) with an NBA player currently in the Dallas Mavericks. Name the unique ability of the Pokémon, followed by the full name of the NBA player. [Chilling Neigh, Kristaps Porzingis]
2) Name the only Ice-type Pokémon that could learn and use an attack to freeze an Ice-type Pokémon, assuming there are no in-battle type changes. [Cloyster]
3) Name the only Pokémon capable of having a Defense stat of 3 at level 100, at the start of a battle. [Eternatus-Eternamax]
q1 - Glastrier is 7 ft 3 inch, and so is Porzingis. Glastrier is one of the few Ice-types with a unique ability, so you can search from there.
q2 - Tri Attack is the only move that can freeze Ice-types, and that is only in gen2. /ds2 Ice, Tri Attack
q3 - It was recently discovered that stats starting from 655 would overflow back to 0, due to how stat calculation works. A Defense of 3 is obtained from the overflow of 658, which is the equivalent of a Base Defense of 250, where Eternamax is the only Pokemon capable of having that number. More info here here

1) In the Mafia Room, Masons are confirmed to not be members of this faction. [Mafia]
2) This Mafia UGO Achievement requires you to be a Parrot Role. [After You]
3) This person is the creator of the Open Setup 'Subjugation of the Monarchy'. [ForgotToFlush]
4) This modifier prevents the player from targetting the same person on consecutive nights. [Indecisive]
5) There are two Mafia Auth that have a custom entry on the Mafia Database (Mafia DT). Name the lower ranked Auth. [Alexander489]
6) In this 8 player theme, the two Mafia players cannot communicate and must send two different night kills. [Star-Crossed]
7) The Vanilla theme with this number of players is both nightless and White Flag. Answer in letters. [Six]
8) This scum role appears 4 times in the Greater Idea role deck. [Werewolf]
9) This 16 player open setup features three doctors who each effectively have a 1/3rd chance of stopping a kill on average. [Elemental Large]
10) This role in Snaq's Idea can win with exactly two different factions at any given point in the game . [E.T.]
11) This theme played on the Mafia Forums as part of the Summer Circuit 2020 was hosted across two games, subtitled Cats, and Dogs. [Traitor vs Trackers]
12) This 7p theme is named after a part of the body. [Eyes]
13) These two roles in Mafia are counterparts of each other, and named after apostles of Jesus. (Answer in reverse alphabetical order) [Saulus Judas]
14) This role present on Mafiascum's list of roles is the same as the name of a certain Pokemon move. [Thief]
15) This 12 player open setup has two lover pairs, one of which is town-town, while the other is town-scum in nature in its role list. [Mini Love]
16) In Kirby Mafia, this Copy Ability only lets the player roleblock someone. [ESP]
17) Among the roles present in both Cracking Idea and Greater Idea (as listed in /mafia dt), this role has the highest number of characters present in its name (including spaces). [Mafia One-Shot Day Vigilante]
18) This device in logic, used in forum Mafia games, presents the idea that the simplest resolution of an argument is correct, and is named after the village a 14th century English philosopher was born in. [Occam's Razor / Ockham's Razor / Ocham's Razor]
19) This word is used to refer to a setup that involves an informed majority versus an uninformed minority, such as in themes like Assassin in the Castle. [Royal / Royal Setup]
20) This goo steals the actions of anyone that targets it [Yellow Goo]
21) You've gotten through 20 questions and 20 answers so far, but looking at them, you come to think of a past event, that you saw linked right when you entered the room. Curious, you enter the link, but you have no idea what to search for! But then you realise that the answers, when you saw them initially, put together, remind you of one specific incident from the room's past that you knew very well, and you realise that it's exactly what you need to answer with. What is this odyssey trying to remind you of? (This is a Meta Question, and uses the answers of previous questions, which you can check with /viewhunt) [Schiavetto's Goodbye]
The last part of the hunt (Q21) references taking the initial letter of each answer previously, giving you the phrase 'MAFIASSWEETESTMEMORY' or Mafia's Sweetest Memory; and also advises you to look at the roomintro of Mafia, where you can conveniently find the Mafia Awards linked. Doing so gets you to the Sweetest Memory category, in which Schiavetto's Goodbye won first place. Thanks Schiavetto for all you've done for the room in the past, again!
BIG thanks to Andrew and aQrator for helping QC this hunt, and test solve it; and I hope you were able to get closer as rooms as a result! Cheers; and of course, big thanks to Arby for suggesting this and making half the questions so it would work out.

See you next time!

Point Rally in 3 days and 7 hours! (Totally didn't forget to post)

Hosted by me and computerwizard8800 (and has been in the works for over half a year), QCs by resident ROs LittEleven and aQrator (huge thanks to all three)

Also the reason Tapler is trying to steal tape is because I stole his.

Looking forward to seeing you there; it's gonna be a blast~


Huge thanks to CWiz for hosting the whole thing! And thanks to everyone that came!

1) Use alphabetical order to answer this hunt. A certain ability enables the use of a status move that normally requires the user to have a certain status condition to be successfully used. Name the ability and the move. [Comatose Sleep Talk]
2) Under normal battle conditions, these Pokemon are always unaffected by Attract used by a Pokemon of the same species and opposite gender. [Absol-Mega, Sableye-Mega]
3) These items (that have an in-battle effect on only one Pokemon) are unobtainable in Generation VIII, but the affected Pokemon are obtainable. Ignore Mega Stones and Z-Crystals. [Blue Orb, Lucky Punch, Red Orb]

Congratulations to everyone who finished!

Late post ROs please don't kill me

And mods, but it's harder to be scared of a stapler than a spear


Finished a Jumpstart with two hunts - the Fish Fish and the Fishy Fish! Best thing about this was honestly the reactions. QCs by DarkShinyGiratina and Aegii, huge thanks to both! though in hindsight having the the three newest staff on the hunt wasn't a good idea since none of us knew what to do

Hunts:

[Before we start, quick clarification: all answers are in alphabetical order, and answers don't include duplicate terms. Also exclude the word 'Pokemon' from answers.] It's a wonderful day at the beach! You look at your watch and see there's actually an hour to go for the main fish - why not go fishing? The question is, what type of Fish Pokemon even exist? Obviously, you'd only settle for a fully-evolved one - which of those is a fish out of water? | Eelektross | Alright, time to go find an Eelektross! You decide to go find one in Rumble Rush, so you take a boat there. However, once you're there, your boat almost sinks. Apparently, one of the Pokemon there is said to be able to sink fishing boats. What's the minimum base speed you need to outspeed it, in letters? | Sixty One | Whew, your boat is exactly fast enough to escape. And of course, now your line tugs, and you fish out... Pokemon number #61! It seems you've stumbled on a nest - within minutes, you find every single Pokemon from the evolutionary family. What category names do these have? | Frog, Tadpole | Satisfied, you start to sail back - until you remember that frogs aren't actually fishes! D: Good thing you know a water-type trainer who's fond of Poliwag - after all, her Poliwag was how she'd gotten married to a Gym Leader. Her son is a Gym Leader, too, and coincidentally a good friend of yours. What's his name? | Brock | Damn, you haven't spoken with Brock in a while. Then you realize your boat has sprung a leak; you'll have to take the ferry to get home in time for the fish. Brock's number is 9462-1714, but you can't get any reception on the ferry. To be annoyed at the ferry, answer with FERRY - and hope you get home in time for the fish. | FERRY
The unrated scavenger hunt by PartMan was ended automatically.
1st place: Cheese555 sucks [04:12].
2nd place: Ninetales Alolan<3 [05:40].
3rd place: WarriorGallade [08:31].
Consolation Prize: CynicCyndaquil [11:44], adiass [11:54], NewsDan♣ [12:58], TurtalKatThing [13:11], Penguin D [13:55], Arby [14:50], cleo [15:16], ScorrchingTheaph [17:40]

[Please take careful note of the first hunt - it is relevant to this one, which is somewhat like a continuation. All earlier clarifications still apply.] You sprint off the ferry and straight home - where PartMan has just started announcing the hunt. You're in time! Then he says something surprising: apparently, the object of this hunt is YOU! The screens show footage of you panting from the run, and apparently they've been following you for a while. The first question, fortunately, doesn't seem to be related to your fishing excursion. It's about a fishy fishing competition - and it asks for the Pokemon that debuted. | Basculin; Basculin-Blue; Basculin-Blue-Striped | You finish the first question - and Brock pops up on-screen. The next answer is a Berry, and apparently it needs both the answers to your fishing trip and the first 5 digits of Brock's phone number. | Starf | You shake your head, annoyed that someone would put a puzzle in a Scavengers official. Then you realize that you weren't paying attention to the third question - all you heard was something about fraud and bursts, and how the answer is two Pokemon names. | Bisharp, Reshiram | Whew, you did it! Note to self: pay attention during fishes. Then you realize it's not over - and this is the actual last question. Brock calls you and mentions how the last answer to the fishy fish is a fishy fish - and that you've already solved the meta. | Starfish
