Scavengers Ladder - October

#1
Hello! Originally created by stellar user Joim, the Scavengers room is a long-standing public room on Pokémon Showdown that focuses on Scavenger Hunts, short and engaging trivia games that test the user's knowledge and searching skills in a variety of question types. In particular, the room focuses on competing to top the monthly ladder, where our users attempt to earn as many points as possible by creating and solving Hunts! Official Hunts are primarily led by the room staff members, but any user can help out with making regular hunts.

Official Hunts award points to the five highest placing users; first place earns 30 points, second place 25 points, third place 20, fourth place 15, fifth place 10, sixth place 5, and every finisher from seventh place on 2 each. If any of the top three users finish within 1 minute of the hunt's starting, they will earn 10 extra BLITZ points.

We also create Mini-Officials that are hosted spontaneously and also count towards the monthly ladder. First place finishers will earn 15 points, second place 13 points, third place 10, fourth place 8, fifth place 5, sixth place 3, and seventh onward 1 each.

Creating a regular hunt is worth 4 points, whereas solving one is worth 5 points for first place, 3 points for second, 2 for third, and 1 each for fourth onward.

Lastly, every month's ladder has a unique twist that allows for different question types, point scoring systems, and more, making each month's ladder a different experience. Submitting a valid ladder twist suggestion is worth 5 points, up to a maximum of 20 points total for four valid, submissions. The winning submission will earn 30 extra points. All twist submission points will be granted at the beginning of the following month.

The top players from each month’s ladder will be recorded and receive special mentions in future ladders and the room itself. Any non-auth members in the top five places of the monthly ladder will also receive a nomination for Room Voice. The monthly ladder winner will have the option to choose the next month’s ladder twist, from the top options chosen by staff.

Our room also has a website with all sorts of information, so if you're looking to get into the room for the first time or refresh yourself on some rules and details, check it out!

The official hunt can also be viewed by using the command /scavtop when in the Scavengers room; however, a record of some of the past ladders can be found on the site's ladder archive.

October ladder twist: 5 extra points are earn-able for finishing a full official, minus one point for every minute it takes you to solve the hunt, capped at 5 minutes!

Please refrain from unnecessary posting in the ladder thread, as it is used primarily for documenting hunt reservations and results. If there are concerns with the thread that need to be addressed, you can message a staff member on either Smogon or PS. (This has been an unspoken rule of the ladder threads over the past few years but I'd like to officially put it here for reference.)
And of course, thanks to all of these folks for helping out a ton with the room in the past: Spy, Darnell, Level 51, The Captain., Vacate, Alter, Shame That, Joim, The Immortal, sirDonovan, queez, Xylen, ashiemore, Flerovium, Painter Espeon, and GoodMorningEspeon!
