    This should be an easy game. The goal is to get as many riddles correct as possible. Whoever gets the most riddles correct wins. The riddles will be distributed in five sets of ten similar to those found in sheep games. The answers will all be either a Pokémon, Item, Ability, or Move. So if the riddle is "Sludge fired from a rail gun" the answer would be something like "Gunk Shot" and not "A monkey throwing poop" There will be more than one correct answer to some riddles!!! You must answer the via PM, answers posted in the thread that are not obvious troll answers will have players removed from the game. E.g. if the riddle is something like "Flying bananas" and someone posts that the answer is "poop" that's OK, but if you post "tropius" you will be removed from the competition.​

    COLLABORATION IS NOT ALLOWED! In this game, as with the sheep games, under no circumstances are you allowed to get help from ANYONE on a riddle. This will be extremely hard to enforce unless you are extremely stupid, so you will be going off the honor system.

    SET 1

    Convection transfers heat
    Seamen’s guide
    The Pokemon of the Pokemon liberators
    Marshmallows are very…

    Hi. Here are you answers. Go and be ashamed.

    Results:
    Convection transfers heat - Heatran
    I'm really disappointed with this one. I considered this an easy anagram, so no adjustment was made.

    The Pokemon of the Pokemon liberators - Rotom/Reshiram/Zekrom
    After realizing that Team Plasma + Plasma Pokémon wasn't a good question, I included the Reshiram/Zekrom answers. Not the Kyurem ones b/c they were no longer under the guise of Pokémon liberators when using Kyurem.

    Hi. Since I've had three PMs for answers over 12 hours after the answers were posted, I'm making this announcement. Answer's for set two submitted after 0:00 GMT +0 on 11/30 will not be accepted. The answers I have received for set one after my post will not be accepted, but since they at least appear to be honest answers, each user who has submitted an answer will be awarded one point in standings, regardless of how many correct answers they had. (If they did not answer any correct, the score will remain at 0) Sorry for any misunderstandings. All answers for set one submitted from this point on will not be accepted

    Ok so either you guys just don't want to play or really want an extension. I only have 12/29 PMs. A 24 hour extension will be made if I do not hit 15 PMs in the next 3 hours. Also just to let you guys know, this set is much better than the first. One player got 9/10 answers correct.
