Black and White Scavenger Hunt #1
Follow the clues that "Smugleaf" gives you!

Considering the success of the Pokemon Anime scavenger hunt, as well as the Halloween Haunt's, it's B/W's turn (with an added twist)! All you need to do is follow the clues given to you by "Smugleaf" (yes there was a reason why this name was chosen).

Do note that this hunt is only in the Black and White section.

This hunt will be similar to Pokemon Anime's - each clue leads to another clue. The catch? It'll be a monthly scavenger hunt. The hunt will only last for two weeks from when the thread is posted. Once that time is up, we'll post the winners and where the clues were found. There will then be a two week break, which means after that, we'll post a new scavenger hunt based around another keyword or key concept of B/W (btw, one month it'll be my hunt, the next it'll be Kaori's and so on).

We're doing this so new B/W regulars can learn more about B/W's past, so that activity hopefully increases and it's just a bit of fun, too! Oh and you're allowed to discuss the hunt in this thread, your progress, etc.

★ Competition starts now - it'll last for two weeks from now
★ Don't post any clues you've found here, when you've found them all at the end, send a PM to Forever
★ Not every clue is able to be found with the "search" bar, you'll need to think a bit for a few clues! The clues are usually towards the start of the thread, with one exclusion~
★ Whoever has found all the clues will get an emblem - yeah this means multiple winners

First clue:
[css-div=letter-spacing:2px]We have weekly polls that have been a success - they seem to be the highlight of B/W for Smugleaf![/css-div]
Good luck!

how would we know if we have found the clue? Are they in title tags or something? :/

Oh yes, I forgot to mention! XD;

Hover over "Smugleaf" in the post where the clue is at and you'll get the next clue~

(There are two cases where "Smugleaf" is mentioned in another location, but it should be easy to find within the thread).

Oh and the first clue doesn't have a title tag, just so you know :)

I'm having trouble on this one clue.
I swear I've seen where it should be this morning but I can't find it anymore. o: <
(hard to post without not wanting to give anything away)

Oh and whats a title tag?

Logiedan
November 11th, 2010, 02:17 AM
Basically, title tags are tags that let you hide text in text.
Hover over me!Your outcome:

Hover over me!

Ahh ok, I thought it was that, but I just wanted to make sure, and the second clue is really winding me up >:-(

Baahh, i'm missing a clue. ;-;
I don't understand this clue either. I think i'll just stop looking and hopefully run into it during the time of the Scavenger hunt.

Out of interest, is this a forum wide hunt or just the B/W board?

Forever
November 11th, 2010, 05:06 AM
Do note that this hunt is only in the Black and White section.

...how did you miss the big text... XD; Only in B/W. :3 Good luck everyone else who is currently trying to find the clues, though!

(No other forums besides Pokemon Anime are having a hunt, though).

A few questions that I didn't quite understand:
1) Is 'Smugleaf' the only word that contains a clue or are there others?
2) Are the posts that contain the word only posted by Forever?

Forever
November 11th, 2010, 06:41 AM
Smugleaf is the only word that contains the clue, yus. And nope, not just my posts :D

Ah, thanks for the clarification.
Now I can start hunting.

This is so much fun, by the way :D

EDIT: Oh and it can be in ANY post of ANY thread, as long as it's in the Black&White section?

The clue doesn't really give a hint to where the next one is, unless i'm missing something here. ;-;
If we're talking about the same clue that is.

You tried mines, so I might as well try yours. I'll start searching over the weekend, but I have a pretty good idea where the first one is. XD;

While you guys are at it, you should totally join my scavenger hunt over here. Just saying. (http://www.pokecommunity.com/showpost.php?p=6268431&postcount=71)

Aaaargh!! I'm still stuck on the second one, even though it doesn't even seem to be that hard! >_> It doesn't help that I'm trying to rush before the deadline because I don't know how long I'll be away from PokeCommunity during Thanksgiving Break...

WHY do you do this to me, Smugleaf Snivy Tsutarja?!

The prize?
Whenever I ask someone to upload the emblem, lol D;

Extra?
Anndddd... the hunt will resume in two weeks, hosted by Kaori next time with another keyword!

Oh and;
"We have weekly polls that have been a success - they seem to be the highlight of B/W for Smugleaf!"
"I'm one of three, what does that make me?"
"Smugleaf says 'Now you KNOW I'm good'"
"I seem to be everyone's favourite..."
"The land I come from? Isshu of course! But where can I find it..."
"Where is Isshu? Confirmed - Smugleaf [The guidelines to finding me are easy]"
"Is this going to be my name or not?"
"I bet there's some pretty awesome art of me"
"I heard a RUMOUR that..."
"Yes, you followed all of Smugleaf's clues, send a Private Message to Forever with links to where you found each clue."

^ Those were the exact clues, so yeah. Going to edit those clues out now, though~

Congrats to winners! Oh and you can enter next time even if you won this time but when the emblem comes, it won't be duplicated.

:surprised: Argh, I knew I was on the right track with the Starter Discussion thread! I noticed the poll, but I didn't hover over "Smugleaf" in the statement "Smugleaf says 'Now you KNOW I'm good'"...
I didn't know you could do that hover-title-hidden-text thingy within the polls as well! I was scouring through all the posts instead! No wonder I got stuck... :cer_laugh: Time constraints also dampened my search, too... But come the next hunt...you're mine, Snivy Smugleaf! AND NEXT TIME, YOU ARE GETTING IN THAT DARN DREAM (Contrarian Smugleaf FTW) POKE BALL! http://archives.bulbagarden.net/media/upload/9/93/Bag_Pok%C3%A9_Ball_Sprite.png

Anyway, congrats to the winners of this hunt!
