Solution: medicham, gigalithsmackdown, stoutland

Q1) What Mega Pokémon lacks any base stat greater than 100? (Do not include “mega” in your answer)
Q2) “Thick Aging Wadmols” is an anagram of which Rock-type Pokémon and a move it can learn? (format pokemonmove)
Q3) Suppose a right triangle has one leg whose length equals Manaphy’s National Dex number, and a hypotenuse with a length equal to that of Goodra’s. What Pokémon’s National Dex number is closest to the length of the remaining leg?

Really sorry about q2, dropped an s on the anagram and it somehow made it through qcs :( I've been told that a certain anonymous fourth place finisher on this official (who will not be named) would've won if not for that, so sorry n_n But overall, not worse than beat up hunt!

Solution: sneaselmetalclaw, stunfisk, burstheart

1) Even though this was Scizor’s signature move in Pokémon Gold/Silver, this Pokémon was able to learn it via level-up in Pokémon Crystal (format as pokémonmove).
2) This is the only PWT rental Pokémon to have an OHKO move.
3) In order for a human to combine with a Pokémon, this item is required.

I am bad and did not specify that the rental Pokémon were just from the Rental Tournament rather than the Rental Master Tournament. Even then, there were others with OHKO moves (I blame Bulbapedia for being bad =/).

Congratulations to the finishers and thanks to the quality checkers (Rory Mercury and ashiemore)!
