I'm going to go ahead to the next question, since it's been a couple days since the last question. I'll award points appropriately.

If anyone is curious to the last two answers, they were:

Attack - Rhydon (130). Originally I thought the answer was Cranidos at 125, but nope, Rhydon beats that out.
Speed - Sneasel (115).

Time for a bit of a change of pace.
What is a "Tropical Tidal Wave" and what does it do?

You're very close! I'll give you 2 points at the end of the question for that.
(Let that be a hint to the rest of you.)

Could it be the card given out to the players and staff of the 2011 World Championships? I know I remember reading a post you made in the TCG Islands about that.

@Samurott: Rules are rules; no you may not guess again for this question.
@twistedturtwig: Actually, that card was Tropical Beach, not Tropical Tidal Wave. You're close too, though...very close!

Darn it! I could have sworn that was the card you had been describing. Oh well. :lol:

Okay, here we go.
This is a Tropical Tidal Wave:

Image

This card was given out to competitors of the Pokemon TCG World Championships in the years 2005, 2006, and 2010. (Above is the 2005 print.)

I'm going to give Cherrygrove and Twistedturtwig each 2 points, since they were close.

Quote:
DragoBoy - 10
Mektar - 5
Cherrygrove - 5
Skeleton - 4
Dare234 - 3
twistedturtwig - 3
ShinyLucario - 3
Shuckle-rock$ - 2


Now, we all know of weaknesses, resistances, and immunities due to types. But people usually don't think of the types that Pokemon are neutral to.

So here is a question. Which Pokemon evolution line has less neutral type matchups than any other Pokemon?

Probably something Steel since it damn nearly resists everything.

So um, the Klink line?

It's not the Klink line.

However, you're on the right track - it is Steel-type.

I'm going to guess the Ferroseed line, just because you said it was a steel type and that is the first thing I thought of.

After some careful-ish thinking, I'm going for the Magnemite family - Magnemite, Magneton, and Magnezone.

After careful thinking, I factored in types, annoyingness scale (dont ask), and eliminated steel-only types to find one, and only one, evolution line. The answer is... *crosses fingers* The Pawniard and Bisharp evolution line! *cringes and waits to be proven wrong... again*

...No Bulbapedia for me today! As usual my brain refuses to work for me, and I'm not really sure who, beside serious competitive players who deal with exact numbers everyday, could pull the correct answer right out of the head...


Well, this has nothing to do with ShinyLucario, but it has to do with the rules. People aren't honest, did you know that? :?

@Ashketchumwee: Are you familiar with the honor system?

More to the point of the question itself, the answer is the Magnemite line. They take neutral damage from only 1 type - Water. All other types they're either weak to, resist, or are immune to. Ferroseed takes neutral damage from 2 types iirc - Flying and Ground.
All those were pretty good guesses, though.

DragoBoy - 10
ShinyLucario - 6
Mektar - 5
Cherrygrove - 5
Skeleton - 4
Dare234 - 3
twistedturtwig - 3
Shuckle-rock$ - 2


Let's see here...

How many moves are there that have the following effect:

"The more HP the user (or the target) has, the more damage this attack will do."


You don't have to name the names of all the attacks, but if you do I'll throw in some bonus points.

Eruption, Water Spout , Crush Grip and Wring Out. So that makes four.

Well, there are nine non wrap like moves, (wrap like meaning moves that attack on each turn, like Wrap) seven wrap like moves, so that makes 16 all together.
But, Super Fang and Nightmare kinda teeter on the edge. Nightmare only counts if the target is asleep, and it takes away some fraction of the max HP of the target. Super Fang only does damage = half of the targets current HP. So there are those two. It depends on what you mean and what you'll accept.

The world has changed. I wanna go back to the 1970's. Darn good times. Though I wasn't there... Dangit I was born to darn late. Oh well back on topic.
I think it's grip and rock slide, but I'm not very smart in this area. I'm more smart on the names... :lol:

@Ashketchumwee: You seriously need to recheck your posts...

Eruption, Water Spout, Crush Grip and Wring Out are obvious ones, but Samurott provided other possibilities like Super Fang. If we're going by Samurott's logic, I'll name Pain Split as a possible answer.

Don't all the OHKO moves fit the criteria? They always OHKO the target so the more HP the target has, the more damage they will cause. So, Sheer Cold, Fissure, and Horn Drill.

I'm probably wrong but it's worth a try.

I actually have nothing to do with that. It's my computer acting like a meanie pants. So. Now I can't delete them. Oh well.

These were the moves I was aiming for in this question:

Crush Grip
Wring Out
Water Spout
Eruption

...although the other answers were interesting as well. I'll give out points as follows:

DragoBoy - 3
Samurott - 0 (Wrap's trap effect isn't actually damage, and neither is Nightmare)
Ashketchumwee - 0 (Crush Grip was said already)
ShinyLucario - 0 (Pain Split doesn't deal damage)
Skeleton - 1 (since technically that could be considered true)
Dare234 - 0 (It just KOs the target; I'm not sure that really counts as doing damage)

Ah well, this was a vague question anyway. I'll freely admit that I failed here.

Quote:
DragoBoy - 13
ShinyLucario - 6
Mektar - 5
Cherrygrove - 5
Skeleton - 5
Dare234 - 3
twistedturtwig - 3
Shuckle-rock$ - 2


All right, time to be serious.

You recall the question about highest base stats in NFE Pokemon? Well, here's a challenge for you.
I'm going to broaden this question to include all Pokemon, and what I'm looking for is the highest base stat in each area that is a prime number.


Confused about the question? Okay, I'll actually reveal part of the answer. The answer to Speed is 127, and the Pokemon is Shaymin's Sky Form.
Now...I am not asking you to name the Pokemon, only the number. (If I ask you to name the Pokemon, that will be too difficult.) If you get a stat correct, that's 1 point. If you name the Pokemon as well, you'll get 2 points instead.

If I didn't make myself clear enough, let me know.

HP:
Attack:
Defense:
Sp. Attack:
Sp. Defense:
Speed: 127 (Shaymin-S)
