The ladder twist for the month of October will be: Multithreading: Two officials will be started near-simultaneously in Scavs and our subroom. Users can choose either hunt to attempt, and placing will be determined by best overall finish time of either hunt, meaning the placers will be determined in real time regardless of the specific hunt they completed. Users may finish a second hunt for additional points. Note that this month's twist will be active only on Saturdays and Sundays EDT (GMT -4:00), and that this twist does not apply to mini-officials.

As a reward for winning the September Ladder, this twist was be chosen by 111ace111 from the submissions. Thanks to sparkychild for being the one who submitted this twist, and on the October Ladder they will receive 5 points for submitting that valid twist, plus an additional 30 for submitting the winning twist! For a full list of users who earned head-start points for submitting valid twists:
sparkychild 35
aegii 10
PartMan 5
smii 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!

Spook yourself with how well you do on the October Ladder!

2nd place: Miss Mare [14:41].
3rd place: AndrewThePenguin [39:05].

Solution:
1) In the anime, both Virgil and Mannes use an evolution line to power their helicopters. This is the only member that debuted in a different TV episode than the other members of that line. [Klang]
2) In the anime, this Pokemon's moveset was revealed in an episode whose name (if you remove all spaces and punctuation) starts with 4 times the same 2 letter word. In a later episode, Professor Oak rides the Pokemon. [Gogoat]
3) During the Hoenn Grand Festival, a Pokemon was used by a coordinator. That Pokemon can learn the move that's included in that specific Pokemon's debut episode, but cannot learn the move in the name of the episode that follows it. These episodes are also the first time that Pokemon appeared in the anime without its counterpart. (Name the Pokemon and the 2 moves, in order of the episodes.) [Illumise Silver wind Assist]
