Trivia is over, congrats to those who participated. It was an incredibly close match the whole way though, and even ended with a tie for first, with 3rd place only one point back!. Full wrap up will be posted soon, but the standings were as follows

First Place (tie): Shinashu, Ace (23 points)
Third Place: Cherrygrove (22 points)
Fourth Place (tie): TonberryKing, Serpentsounds (18 points)
Sixth Place: Twistedturtwig (12 points)
Seventh Place: MasonTheChef (8 points)
Eighth Place: Registeel_Rocks (3 points).
Ninth Place: EvilPenguin (1 point for stumping)

Thanks again to all who showed up!

GAME DETAILS

Where/when?

In the #PsypokeTrivia chat channel on KBFail's server (irc.kbfail.net). Date and time is September 7th at 6PM EDT. If you need to find out what time this is in your time zone, use the World Clock. I anticipate that the game will take 1.5 hours at most.

For using the java applet to access the chats: go here, click on the Java Applet link, and type /join #psypoketrivia when you're connected.

How it works:

At the start +m will be set. I will state the category if a new one is starting.

Next, before stating the question, I will say "Ready?", then set -m and ask the question.

At this point everyone will be able to give the answer to the question. There will be no limit to how many times you can answer in. Please do not spam the channel and only submit answers to the question at this time so as to reduce lag.

When I see the first person to give the correct answer I will set +m and then state the person who gave the answer as well as the correct answer. The person will earn a point. The goal is to earn as many points as you can.

Rules:

1. Do not use any colors or /me commands.
2. Do not argue if you thought that you answered before someone else. It will go by what appears on my screen only.
3. Do not use any reference materials online OR offline (such as the site or a text file on your computer).
4. Do not change your nick during the event.

Prizes:

Bragging rights

Questions:

Why should I go?
It's fun! The more participants, the more fun it is.

Are the questions Pokemon-related?
All the questions will be related to Pokemon in some way. None of those Canada shenanigans.

What time is it in my time zone?

TBD

Is there freezing?
I don't like it, so probably not. If it does happen, I'll give prior notice.

Why can't I talk when I get in there?
This would be supposing that you're late and +m is set. This usually means that it is between questions. +m is a special mode to be set on chat channels that mutes people without special privileges (voice or op). These are only given to some staff and others who have won the status in previous games.

How will typos be dealt with?
Any typos shall result in being booped with my Clegavel

What happens to rule-breakers?
Public shaming and death via Klomp Berry.

If you have any questions about joining or playing the game please post them here.

I will FINALLY be able to attend one. Of course I'm not going to say how accurate my answers will be.

For eons I have lived, and names fade like puddles in the sunlight.

But I should be free that night, I think.

Ok, I have a cross country meet that day, but with enough luck, I'll be home by then and will be able to participate.

And holy crap, no DNA or EP this time?! We all might have a shot for once! \o/

Inb4 DNA has been trolling us the entire time, and he'll be there to wipe the floor with everyone like usual.

The Trivia Champion does not jest when it comes to trivial matters.

Just a reminder that trivia will be starting in 4 hours!

Well, technically 3 hours and 50 minutes from now. But pregame stuff will take a while I assume. Either way, hope to see a great turnout!
