Mektar was on the right track? Pikachu's never learned Thunderpunch naturally, ever.

For this one I'm going with Delcatty thunderwaving Rhyperior being impossible... there are two others I'm not sure about but I'm more sure about this one, and the rest I know are possible.

I...really don't know about this one, everything seems to be possible in some way:

Do NOT Highlight to view spoiler.
1. Reuniclus has at least one ability aside from Magic Guard, that prevents weather effects but not status effects
2. Yep, Mandibuzz does get Overcoat
3. The Rhyperior can be Soaked, and Delcatty's exclusive ability Normalize might be related
4. I think Electivire gets Vital Spirit from Dream World
5. Aron can be hitting a non-Ghost infected with Mu- wait! "No abilities have been altered" It's still explainable that the foe might be Soaked or Odor Sleuth-ed/Foresighted...but is Endeavor even a contact move?
6. Odor Sleuth/Foresight allows Reversal to deal super effective damage to Spiritomb as if it's pure Dark-type


Well, I'll go with an Aron using Endeavor and having its ability immediately changed to Mummy.

I am going to say A Mandibuzz that doesn't take damage from Sandstorm.

The 3 points for this question go to ShinyLucario, because he not only gave the correct answer, but also explained why. Good show!
I'll explain.

A Reuniclus dying to poison damage - Reuniclus can get Overcoat instead of Magic Guard, so this is possible.
A Mandibuzz that doesn't take damage from Sandstorm - Mandibuzz gets Overcoat too.
A Delcatty using Thunder Wave on a Rhyperior successfully - Normalize allows Thunder Wave to paralyze Rhyperior, bypassing the immunity and changing Thunder Wave to a Normal-type move.
An Electivire that doesn't get affected by Spore - Electabuzz line gets Vital Spirit through the Dream World, so this is possible.
An Aron using Endeavor and having its ability immediately changed to Mummy - The condition was that no abilities were altered. Initially, the only Pokemon that can have Mummy are Yamask and Cofagrigus - and both are Ghost-types, therefore immune to Endeavor. Of course, if Aron uses an Endeavor on another Mummified Pokemon, this could happen - but for this problem, that doesn't apply.
A Spiritomb taking super-effective damage from a Reversal - Anything with Scrappy, e.g. Kangaskhan, can do this.

Tyranitar, Empoleon, Stunfisk, and Shedinja.
What do all these Pokemon have in common?

They are all dual types, but aren't they all unique as well?

I think Dare234 just hit the nail on the head. They all have unique typings.

They all have 'n's in their names. Theyre all fully evolved pokemon. Stunfisk cant evolve, but has no pre-evolution form. Empoleon is the fully evolved form of piplup. Shedinjask evolves from Ninjask, but doesnt evolve into anything else. Tyranitar evolves from Pupitar, which evolves from Larvitar. There. I know I'm not wrong. I hope. *Walks away LIKE A BOSS*

Exactly! To date, those four all have type combinations shared by no one.

Name all the Pokemon that have abilities who, when they enter play, will change the current weather condition in play. (This doesn't count abilities like Cloud Nine, since that doesn't change the weather.)

Wonderful, I walk in and find that two rounds that are basically free points have came and went. *walks out with head hanging low*
Regardless I'm still happy for getting the "Situation that can't happen" round right :P
But you know what's really creepy? I knew all those explanations (...except Scrappy) by heart. Seriously, I need a life.

Here's an interestingly fiendish question.

I'm sure that you are all well aware that, when a Pokemon evolves, its base stats increase by a certain margin. (There are some exceptions in which it might decrease - usually it's Speed.) However, there is one particular Pokemon that, when it evolves, its Speed stat jumps ENORMOUSLY.

Who is it?


Hint: Although it helps to know base stats for this question, you don't need to know them to figure this out. Think of Pokemon who are really fast...but think of ALL of them, not just the one you recognize, and think of which one has the biggest Speed jump!

EDIT: It's come to my attention that there are TWO correct answers to this question. Therefore, I'll be fair, and give 3 points to the first person to name either one. (So a possible total of 6 points can be netted from this question.)

So two answers.
Ninjask is definitely one of them. It gains over 100 base speed on evolving, not exactly sure how much.
The second one is a bit harder. I'll go with Accelgor. It gains a lot of speed on evolving, I just hope it's as much as Ninjask.

120, actually.

This question was way too easy.

All right, I'm going to kick it up a notch.

There are actually a few other Pokemon that, upon evolving, gain more than 100 in one of their base stats. How many of those Pokemon are there? and please name them.

(I might give a hint later on in this question if there are too many wrong answers.)

Umm... let's see here... Vigoroth, Magikarp, Feebas, Kirlia (gets more attack powere when it becomes Gallade?), Eevee, and Tyrouge are all the ones I can think of at the moment.

Well, Mektar answered every single one I could think of, but maybe Pupitar, Shelgon, and Riolu? Those are the only things I can think of. Pupitar and Shelgon get bigger Atk stats, and Riolu gets a decent SpAtk boost.

Let's hope DragoBoy doesn't sweep this game like he did mine. XD

He already is.
Hmmm... Quilava when it evolves into Typhlosion, Shelgor :arrow: Accelgor, Sneasel :arrow: Weavile, and... Thats all I cab think of... No, it isnt. Crackpot guess (again): Blissey :arrow: Chansey. Eevee :arrow: eeveelution like Jolteon or Vaporeon.

Well, I'm not counting the ones from last question since they've already been stated (that is, I don't require you to name Nincada or Shelmet for this question). However, I think it's appropriate to give a hint now.

There's only 2 other Pokemon that gain a stat boost of more than 100 upon evolving. 1 of them has been named already; the other has not.

I'm going out on a limb here and say it's Trapinch. I'm not sure Vibrava have over 100 Speed but it's the only "polar-opposite pre-evo" I can think of. *crosses fingers that I'm right and someone doesn't post a second before me*

*facepalm*
And I was like "How could these people forget Hippopotas and Snover?"

Derp it is two. Stupid reason for thinking it was four.

I think I'll play. Happiny and Magikarp.

^yup

Magikarp jumps by 115 Attack (iirc), and Happiny jumps by 150 HP. (The one named correctly before was Magikarp, named by Mektar. So I'll give him 1 point.)

As you guys know, there are 17 types. Well, of those types, how many of them do NOT have ANY Pokemon immune to them via type combinations and abilities? And please name them.

e.g. say you are using an offensive move of the given type. Let's say Return, which is Normal-type. However, any Ghost-type is immune to Return. Therefore, Normal-type is not a correct answer.


Want a hint? Start naming off the 17 types in your head (write them down if you need to). Then, start scratching off every type you know that has an immunity by a type OR an ability until you have narrowed it down to the correct list.
