Title: Name That Pokemon!
Post by: PurpleParrot319 on March 22, 2012, 07:43:21 PM
Welcome to a new game that I came up with. It's called "Name That Pokemon!". This game is just like "Name That Episode!" for Legends, but this version concerns Pokemon. In this version, the clue giver will give three clues associated with a certain Pokemon. Once someone answers correctly, it is their turn to give three clues. Try not to make it a dead giveaway (it's okay if you do, but try not to make it too easy; challenge is a good thing if done right)! Don't worry, we can use the same Pokemon whenever we'd like.

Here's an example of how the game works. Let's say I give these three clues:

-Yellow and black skin
-Has played a very big part in the franchise's success
-Has appeared in Super Smash Bros games

Now it's your turn to give an answer. If you said Pikachu, you would be correct and it would be your turn. However, if you said something like Electabuzz, you would be wrong. If you guessed wrong, then you must wait until someone else has guessed before giving another answer.

I will start the game in the next post.

Butterfree?

Correct! :mrpurple:

-It has purple skin
-It can fly
-Was one of Ash's Pokemon before it got released

See what I did there? Purple and can fly! Sounds familiar doesn't it? ;)

Your turn TSM.

Post by: The Silver Monkey on March 22, 2012, 08:33:57 PM
I figured it had to be either that or Zubat/Golbat/Crobat (which Brock owned). Guess I made the right choice!

-It's pink
-Had a starring role in one of the movies
-The most well-known variation of the Ditto glitch is used to obtain it.

Also, if you can't think of a Pokemon, the clues, or if you just don't feel like going, you can always pass your turn. If you do this, then anyone can go.

If it gets to the point where you feel an extra hint is needed, then go ahead and give another hint. Personally, I think it's time for another hint.

All right:

- This Pokémon's evolutionary line has a unique type combination.
- This Pokémon can only be one gender.
- In Johto, you would see this Pokémon used in a Gym before you could catch one for yourself.

TSM got it.  Jynx is used by a trainer in the Mahogany Gym, but you need to beat all but the Blackthorn Gym before you can catch your own in the Ice Path.


You're up again, TSM!

All right, then I'll go:

- It has more than two arms.
- You'll have to face one of these if you battle the Elite Four in earlier games.
- It's one of the few Pokémon that can do super-effective STAB damage on a Spiritomb.

Title: Re: Name That Pokemon!
Post by: Red Jaguars Fan on March 24, 2012, 03:39:49 PM
STAB damage was too huge a clue. Anyway......

Used by a leader.
First of its types.
Split the words evenly and the second word is something real fishy.

Title: Re: Name That Pokemon!
Post by: Red Jaguars Fan on March 27, 2012, 04:44:37 PM
No.

Hint: I'm being immature about this, because the second part of the name is short form for something fishy. Also, I said leader. Not just gym leader.
Title: Re: Name That Pokemon!
Post by: Red Jaguars Fan on March 29, 2012, 04:05:08 PM
Okay, okay. Sharpedo.

First Water/Dark type (Fully-evolved, but I don't actually care)
Used by Archie
Pedo... What is it short for?

I'll let anyone go.
Title: Re: Name That Pokemon!
Post by: PurpleParrot319 on March 29, 2012, 04:19:26 PM
I guess I'll do one.

-Normal-type Pokemon
-Has only one evolution
-When comparing its name to that of its evolved form, the only difference in the names is the first letter

Minccino?

Oh wait, I misinterpreted the second clue. Has to be Meganium. I'll guess Typhlosion just inc case.
Title: Re: Name That Pokemon!
Post by: The Bandit King on March 30, 2012, 10:27:42 PM
Actually, no, it's not Meganium. However, Typhlosion is correct.

What I can do contradicts one of my weaknesses.
I could easily lose my second type, but It can never happen in any game.
You can only touch a part of me.

Post by: The Viper on April 04, 2012, 04:43:37 PM
That What's Up post was supposed to be texted to my friend. I have no idea why I posted it here.  :oops:

And the answer is Magcargo.

It evaporates water when it cames in contact with it, but it has a 4x weakness to water.
Its shell can easily crumble, which technically would make it lose it's rock type, but it can't lose it's shell in any game.
You can only touch its shell because the rest of its body is lava.
Title: Re: Name That Pokemon!
Post by: The Ancient Warrior on April 04, 2012, 10:11:28 PM
Well, I might as well go.

- This Pokémon belongs to a type specialist, but is ironically weak to her specialized type.
- It's not a Psychic-type, but it has access to several Psychic attacks.
- Its hidden ability is best activated by a teammate in a multiple battle.

Post by: The Ancient Warrior on April 10, 2012, 05:24:54 AM
It's Lucario.  Nice job, Viper!


- Due to being part-Steel, Maylene's Lucario is weak to other Fighting-type moves.
- Psychic moves it can access include Heal Pulse, Psychic, Zen Headbutt, Agility, Calm Mind and Role Play.
- Its hidden ability is Justified, which ups its Attack when it's hit with a Dark-type move.  And since it has a double resistance to Dark, few opponents would unintentionally trigger it.

Is it Sandshrew?

Is it Marowak?
Title: Re: Name That Pokemon!
Post by: PurpleParrot319 on April 13, 2012, 07:43:57 PM
Is it Marowak?

We've got a winner!

Not only is it a ground-type that knows a lot of normal-type moves, but its story is interesting. In Lavender Town, it's a ghost in the Pokemon Tower because Team Rocket killed it. This Marowak can only be seen with a Silph Scope.

Marowak is correct.

All right, I'll go again:


- It only has one weakness, but I can't tell you the exact type for a reason.
- Its evolved form is only used by one trainer in its debut game, although several others had one above a level where it could evolve.
- Its type combination wasn't new at the time; it was first used a generation before this Pokémon debuted.

I want to clarify that the hints that refer to its evolutionary relative are talking about a later evolution, if that helps.  As a further hint, this Pokémon has two types, not just one.

Togepi?
Title: Re: Name That Pokemon!
Post by: The Ancient Warrior on April 21, 2012, 04:52:41 PM
TSM got it; it was Bronzor.

- As a Steel/Psychic-type, it would normally be weak to both Fire and Ground, but each of its possible abilities covers one weakness or the other.
- Only Lucian ever uses Bronzong in Diamond and Pearl (unless some minor trainer in the postgame has it... I should've stopped to think about that ^^;; ), although Mars and Jupiter's Bronzors evolve before the Stark Mountain battle in Platinum.
- Steel/Psychic-types first appeared in Generation III with the Beldum line.

Your turn, TSM!

-Despite its size, don't expect it to eat you
Title: Re: Name That Pokemon!
Post by: PurpleParrot319 on April 29, 2012, 09:45:56 PM
I might as well give a new hint now. Here it is:

-I said "don't expect it to eat you" in the third clue because this Pokemon is nice
Title: Re: Name That Pokemon!
Post by: PurpleParrot319 on April 30, 2012, 09:42:10 PM

Title: Re: Name That Pokemon!

-This Pokemon can swim very well

Gyarados?

Post by: PurpleParrot319 on May 03, 2012, 03:10:14 PM
I don't think Gyarados is nice. :?

That's not it. However, I will give another hint to make this easier:

-It IS a Gen. 1 Pokemon
Title: Re: Name That Pokemon!
Post by: The Silver Monkey on May 03, 2012, 03:11:23 PM
Lapras?
Title: Re: Name That Pokemon!
Post by: PurpleParrot319 on May 03, 2012, 03:22:35 PM
Lapras?

Correct! :mrblue:

-This Pokemon has two types - Water and Ice.
-It does not evolve - According to Bulbapedia, Lapras does not evolve.
-Despite its size, don't expect it to eat you - It's huge, but due to its kind nature, it is very unlikely that it will eat you.
-I said "don't expect it to eat you" in the third clue because this Pokemon is nice - See third clue.
-This Pokemon can swim very well - Lapras is a super strong swimmer.
-It is a Gen. 1 Pokemon - From Kanto.

I'm honestly surprised that took so long, but hey, pretty much everything I did before Lapras was pretty easy. I guess this is a nice change for once.

Post by: The Silver Monkey on June 13, 2012, 12:00:35 AM
Well, Nintendo of America is based in Seattle, where the Thunder used to play. :lol:

Title: Re: Name That Pokemon!
Post by: NekoSuave on June 13, 2013, 08:05:44 PM
Helioptile? I'm not sure, since you said the second clue wasn't true anymore.
Title: Re: Name That Pokemon!
Post by: The Silver Monkey on June 13, 2013, 08:55:33 PM
Helioptile is correct!

1. Has a unique type combination. (Electric/Normal)
2. It's based on a reptile. (A lizard or salamander, to be specific)
3. Has a similar color scheme as the first pure Steel type in National Dex order (though it's NOT a Steel type). (Mawile, of course. :P)

And I had to re-write the second clue because the recently-revealed Shishiko also has Normal as a secondary type.

You're up, NekoSuave!
Title: Re: Name That Pokemon!
Post by: NekoSuave on June 13, 2013, 09:37:52 PM

1. Has two different species names.

Title: Re: Name That Pokemon!
Post by: NekoSuave on August 15, 2013, 03:38:19 PM
Okay, I put another hint on here.

1. Has two different species names.
2. It shares its typing with five other Pokémon.
3. This Pokémon had a major role in two of the movies.
4. Is not a Legendary.

Title: Re: Name That Pokemon!
Post by: NekoSuave on August 15, 2013, 10:01:35 PM
Incorrect. Giratina is a Legendary.

One more incorrect answer, and I'll add another hint. I'm really sorry if I made this too challenging. :oops:
Title: Re: Name That Pokemon!
Post by: The Silver Monkey on August 15, 2013, 10:29:13 PM
Complete guess here: Emboar?
Title: Re: Name That Pokemon!
Post by: NekoSuave on August 15, 2013, 10:54:03 PM
Incorrect. I've added another hint, and I tweaked the third clue because the roles it had in those movies may not be as important as I thought they were.

1. Has two different species names.
2. It shares its typing with five other Pokémon.
3. This Pokémon was used by an antagonist in two of the movies.
4. Is not a Legendary.
5. One of its Pokédex entries states that its wings are not used for flying.
Title: Re: Name That Pokemon!
Post by: The Silver Monkey on August 15, 2013, 10:57:57 PM
Scizor?
Title: Re: Name That Pokemon!
Post by: NekoSuave on August 15, 2013, 11:20:47 PM
Scizor...is correct!

1. It was called the Scissors Pokémon in Gen II, but from Gen III onward, it was called the Pincer Pokémon.
2. It's a Bug/Steel type, a typing that only five other Pokémon (Forretress, Trash Cloak Wormadam, Escavalier, Durant, and base form Genesect) have.
3. The Iron Mask Marauder from Pokémon 4Ever and Goone from Zoroark: Master of Illusions used it; both were antagonists in their films.
4. It's not a Legendary.
5. Its Silver/SoulSilver Pokédex entry claims that their wings aren't used for flying, but to adjust body temperature.

Again, I'm really sorry for this one. I might have gone overboard when I tried to make it challenging.
Title: Re: Name That Pokemon!
Post by: The Silver Monkey on August 16, 2013, 08:38:30 PM
OK, next one:

1. Gains a second type via a form change.
2. Plays a major role in one of G/S/C/HG/SS' in-game events.
3. Has never been catchable (can only be obtained via evolution).

Title: Re: Name That Pokemon!
Post by: The Silver Monkey on December 03, 2013, 09:16:05 PM
Hmm... the "something bad will happen" part makes me think it's either a Ghost type or a Dark type.

TSM, since you're the only one guessing, you can take another guess. However, one more wrong guess and I'll reveal the answer so we can move on.

Here's another hint: it's a Psychic type.

If I'm really close and it's a Psychic type, it's got to be Cresselia!

I can see that fitting the criteria, but unfortunately, that's not what I was looking for.

The correct answer was Mesprit.

-It has Levitate (self-explanatory)
-It likes to roam (unlike the other members of the Lake Guardian trio, this one flees from the player and roams Sinnoh)
-"Can't touch this! If you do, then something bad will happen!" (legend has it that if a person touches Mesprit, they will have their emotions drained away)
-It's part of a certain family with no evolutions (Lake Guardian trio and it doesn't evolve)
-It's a Psychic type (also self-explanatory; it's a pure Psychic type)
-When I said you were really close with the Darkrai guess, I meant that you were close in terms of National Pokedex entries. Mesprit was a few entries before Darkrai.

I guess this was a bad one to do? :?

*bump*

- Can learn every move with the suffix "Beam' except for SolarBeam.
- Even though its' Gold, Stadium 2, LeafGreen, and Y Pokedex entries mention its' rock-hard head, it can't have Rock Head as an ability.
- It's the only Pokemon to have a move named after it.

Seeing that it's been almost a year... :lol:

It's Octillery! (Octazooka's Japanese name is Okutank (Octillery's Japanese name) Cannon.)

So let's try this again...

-It's native to the region featured in the most recently released games in the series.
-It has a pre-evolution and and evolution, but neither one was introduced in the same generation as it.
-A major recurring character in the saga of the anime that took place in the region featured in the most recently released games in the series has one.
