Alright, here we are, with Gen V in full swing. Hope you've all taken some time to get to know the game and play with the new Pokemon? Let's hope we haven't forgotten how things worked in the old days - this issue's questions are themed around the in-game mechanics; things that go on behind the scenes when you play the game. And boy-oh-boy are these ones fun.

But of course, the standard ceremonies. The winner of last issue's Trivia is Nomad! Not only did he attain a clean sweep of 10 correct answers, but he also went the extra mile and provided detail, as well as reading between the lines. That's what I like to see! And without further ado, here are the answers and questions.

Shedinja - the only one with Bug as its typing and Mineral as its only group.
2. Which fully evolved Gen V Pokemon has the lowest BST?
3. Which type occurs 11 times in the Isshu Dex?
Electric - Technically others, so I guess this is my fault for not specifying it as Type 1.

10. How many STAB moves are there in Emboar's level-up movepool? This counts Heart Scale moves.
