OK, here is a thread for my l33t BRAIN TEASERS

Note these multiple-choice questions require LOGIC, not plain guessing, to figure out, because you must MUST EXPLAIN WHY you've chosen your answer!

(If you want the answer and explanation, say "give up", so I won't mistake it for an answer.)

*There is only ONE correct answer for each question unless specifically stated!*

***EXAMPLE ONLY***

Q: Which of these Pokemon is the odd man out?
a. Mew
b. Mewtwo
c. Alakazam
d. Jirachi
e. Ralts

A: c - Because Alakazam is the only evolved Pokemon in that list.

***/EXAMPLE ONLY***

OK, here is question #1:

About GROUPING

Which of these Pokemon do(es) not fit into this group?

1. Articuno
2. Porygon2
3. Ralts, Kirlia and Gardevoir
4. Deoxys
5. Ninetales

Choose one of these answers and say WHY you've chosen it:

a. 2 and 3
b. 5 only
c. 2 only
d. 1 and 4
e. None of them

(Hint: Their appearances DO NOT matter!)

That's an easy one. Articuno and Deoxys. They're the only legendary Pokémon in the group.

Solarys
February 17th, 2006, 05:23 AM
I'm sorry, but you're WRONG! (not even close!)

I'll give you another hint: Their types and stats DO NOT matter either!

EDIT: I changed the wording of the question to make it slightly easier.

Smarties-chan
February 17th, 2006, 08:06 AM
B. Ninetales, it's the only one that can't learn a psychic type move (Articuno learns Extrasensory in XD)

You didn't tell why you picked that answer, Naruto...

Solarys
February 17th, 2006, 09:27 AM
Um... Smarties you answer were right, but your reasoning wasnt correct - it was WAY OFF!

Final hint: Look at the NUMBERS!!! - It's got everything to do with NUMBERS!!!

EDIT: Ninetales learns IMPRISON, and it's a psychic type move!

EDIT2: If no one manages to get the correct reasoning, I'll post the answer along with Q2 by midnight tonight (NZ time). You have a whole day to figure it out - it's VERY OBVIOUS!!!

EDIT3: COME ON ppl!!! its not that hard!!! its OBVIOUS!!! Think why i put numbers before the pokemon?

Smarties-chan
February 18th, 2006, 01:23 AM
I know this isn't the correct answer, but I'll give it a try anyway. The answer is E, Ninetales, because the rest of the Pokémon come in order in the national dex, but Ninetales definitely doesn't come after Deoxys.

Solarys
February 18th, 2006, 01:39 AM
E is right. But the number thing isnt that complicated :D

It's the numbers related to the pokemon thats important! (Why did i use Porygon2 instead of Porygon for the second pokemon?)

EDIT: 1 and a half hours remaining on this question!!! :D

Smarties-chan
February 18th, 2006, 01:45 AM
The answer is too obvious! Of course, Ninetales isn't one of the group, because the rest of them have a number matching the amount of forms they have.

Solarys
February 18th, 2006, 01:58 AM
OK, I'll call it right.

Actually: Look closely at the BOLDED bits:

1. Articuno (uno = one)
2. Porygon2
3. Ralts, Kirlia and Gardevoir (family of 3)
4. Deoxys (4 forms)
5. Ninetales

See how Ninetales doesnt fit into #5?

(It doesnt matter if you dont know that uno means 1, because there isnt an option "1 only".)

Solarys
February 18th, 2006, 03:31 AM
Right, here is Question #2:

It's about a bouncing Spoink (Just a brain teaser, it's got nothing to do with Pokemon really):

A Spoink fell into a well 12 feet deep. He could bounce 3 feet, but every time he bounced 3 feet, he fell back 2 feet.
How many times did he have to bounce to get out of the well?

Choose one of these answers and say WHY you've chosen it:

a. 4
b. 6
c. 8
d. 10
e. 12

(Hint: Note my bolded parts! :D)

***This is an easy one, but Q3 will be hard!***

Forci Stikane
February 18th, 2006, 10:38 AM
E. Spoink is only going up 1 foot each jump, so it would have to jump 12 times to get out.

Oh, and as a friendly suggestion, try not to double-post...

Solarys
February 18th, 2006, 07:51 PM
E is not right, sorry!

Read the question again and take note of the bolded words.

Another hint: Why did I not just say that he bounces 1 foot at a time?

(I had to post 2 mesages, 1 is the answer to Q1, the other is a new question. otherwise its confusing.)

EDIT: It looks like there isnt enough ppl answering this question... I'll give it another day or so :)

***This is an easy one, but Q3 will be hard!***

a. because FELL BACK might mean when it jumps 3 feet it LEANS back and goes backward 2 feet meaning it always goes 3 feet up

Smarties-chan
February 19th, 2006, 10:32 AM
The Spoink question is easy.

d.10

the ten first jumps will always get it 1 foot up, but there is no need to jump the last two times because after it has got itself 10 feet up, it can just jump the last three feet with one jump and get out.

Solarys
February 19th, 2006, 10:51 PM
Smarties is right!

"Get out" doesnt necessarily mean "stay out" :)

Question 3 will be harder!!! (I'll avoid double posting, Q3 is right below.)

*******************************************************

Here is question #3:

It's about a PATTERN

Start: Regice
1: Mawile
2: Entei
3: ?????
4. Machoke
5. Mew
Finish: Sableye

Choose one of the following to replace "?????", and say WHY you've chosen it:

a. Suicune
b. Trapinch
c. Nosepass
d. Umbreon
e. Volbeat

Hint: Each of those Pokemon represent more than just itself! And there is a 2-way pattern to this.

Smarties-chan
February 20th, 2006, 06:54 AM
Nosepass. The pattern goes like this:

Regice is weak against Mawile, Mawile is weak against Entei, Entei is weak against Nosepass and so on...

Gumball Watterson
February 20th, 2006, 03:12 PM
darn i was gonna say that -_-

Solarys
February 20th, 2006, 03:44 PM
Yes, Nosepass is right, but there is a pattern going the other way as well, see if you can figure it out. :)

(It's pointless to put anything before Regice, and there is nothing can go after Sableye.) :)

Gumball Watterson
February 20th, 2006, 04:28 PM
sabley is strong against mew strong against machoke strong against nosepass...etc =P

Silverwing
February 20th, 2006, 05:58 PM
sableye is good against mew (dark > psychic)
mew is good against machoke (psychic > fighting)
machoke is good against nosepass (fighting > rock)
nosepass is good against entei (rock > fire)
entei is good against regice (fire > ice)

I think that's the second pattern

EDIT: Darn, grandadvanceshipper already said it.

Solarys
February 20th, 2006, 07:15 PM
LOL you got the first obvious part right. but the real pattern is like this:

every pokemon in the list is WEAK to the one BELOW, and RESISTANT to the one ABOVE. And each pokemon represent its TYPE(S).

That's why nothing sensible goes in front of Regice (Ice), because ice is only resistant to itself, and nothing can go after Sableye, because it has no weakness.

***Question #4 is coming soon :)***

Solarys
February 21st, 2006, 02:58 AM
OK, question #4 here:

It's a fun one, and it might require some thinking, also it might not :)

OK, imagine there is a evolution machine that increases the evolution level of any Pokemon that enters by 1, e.g. if a Ralts enters, it becomes a Kirlia.

Here's the question:
3 different Pokemon with a total of 3 legs entered. When they came out, they all had the same number of legs. If a "leg" is defined as something a Pokemon stands on, and given that one of the Pokemon entered was a Gloom, then what were the other 2 that came out?

Choose one of these answers and say WHY you've chosen it:

a. Dragonite and Porygon2
b. Dusclops and Grumpig
c. Kadabra and Banette
d. Claydol and Shedinja
e. Dugtrio and Magneton

Hint: Consider the branched evolution.

Elite James
February 21st, 2006, 04:55 AM
The answer is E, Dugtrio and Magneton
It says that it goes up by one, and gloom has 2 legs.. And Magneton has 3 heads [3 being one more than the 2 legs gloom has] and the same occurs for Dugtrio

and for the question about the pattern, where the answer was nosepass, the answer could've been a 4 letter pokemon, As if you count the number of letters in each, it goes up by 1 except for the missing one :)

Silverwing
February 21st, 2006, 06:08 PM
I think the answer is B. Dusclops and Grumpig.

Clue #1:It says that the pokemon that went in has a total of 3 legs. Gloom has 2 legs which means that there could only be 1 more leg left.

Shuppet, the unevolved form of Dusclops, has 0 legs and Spoink, the unevolved form of Grumpig has 1 leg(a "leg" is considered as something the pokemon stands on and Spoink stands on a spring). So 2+0+1= 3 LEGS TOTAL that went in.

Clue #2: The Pokemon that came out had to have the same number of legs as Vileplume, the evolved form of the Gloom that went in. Vileplume has 2 legs so the other 2 pokemon must have the same number of legs. Dusclops and Dragonite both have 2 legs too, so it must be them.

Aren't I so descriptive. XD

Solarys
February 22nd, 2006, 02:26 AM
B is right, just pointing out a few things: DUSKULL evolves into Dusclops, not Shuppet. And option B is Dusclops and GRUMPIG not Dragonite.

Anyhow, got to give you credits for your explanation :D

Question #5 is coming soon... (Below this line: )

************************************************************

Here comes question #5:

Be warned: THIS IS HARD!!!
(It's going to seem very random to some of you, but you'll eventually figure it out, lol...)

It's another GROUPING question.

Again, which of the following Pokemon do(es) not fit into the group:

1 - Octillery
7 - Seedot
14 - Feebas
1,000,000 - Meowth
9 - Persian
2 - Tauros
100 - Houndoom
11 - Kirlia
1,000,000,000 - Blastoise

Choose one of these answers and say WHY you've chosen it:

a. 9 and 11
b. 1,000,000,000 only
c. 100, 1,000,000 and 1,000,000,000
d. 1 and 2
e. None of them

Hint: Focus on their names instead of their species!

Gumball Watterson
February 22nd, 2006, 07:26 PM
d. 1 and 2

1 - Octillery
7 - [See]dot
14 - [Fee]bas
1,000,000 - [Meow]th
9 - [Per]sian
2 - Tauros
100 - [Hound]oom
11 - [Kirl]ia
1,000,000,000 - ]Blast]oise

all the words in [] are real words and octillery and tauros dont have reall words in their name and oct is not really a word it is used for a word

Solarys
February 22nd, 2006, 09:59 PM
Um... NO. It was way off...

I put those random numbers there for a reason you know...

Smarties-chan
February 23rd, 2006, 12:27 AM
Easy, 9 and 11. The rest of the Pokémons' first letter matches the first letters of the number before them

Solarys
February 23rd, 2006, 12:36 AM
ROFL you got it... (it can't get any lamer, can it? :P)

Anyhow I was bored to hell when i came up with that random lame one - i'll come up with better ones later 2nite (NZ time of course :))

It will be below this line:

***************************************************

Quesion #6 is up:

Figure this out:

Given that
0112011101260113 = Alakazam, and
11010401021801 = Kadabra

Then
070118040522150918 = ?????

Choose one of the following and say WHY you've chosen it:

But i will soon :)

Solarys

OK, question #7 is up - it's not that lame :)

If we call every horn and tail on a Pokemon a leg, then how many legs, in total, do a Tauros and a Ninetales have?

a. 14
b. 18
c. 22
d. 8
e. 9

Hint: Read the first part of the question again.

Smarties-chan
February 25th, 2006, 04:17 AM
C, 22. Tauros has two horns, four legs and three tails, and Ninetales has four legs and nine tails. 2 + 4 + 3 = 9 + 9 = 18 + 4 = 22.

Silverwing
February 25th, 2006, 10:43 AM
I think the answer is A. 14

Tauros has 2 horns and 3 tails and Ninetales has 9 tails= 14 "LEGS". The question never said that a real leg was a leg. So that means the four legs on Tauros and Ninetales don't count.

Gumball Watterson
February 25th, 2006, 11:17 AM

I edited the boldings in the question a little, hope that might help.

February 26th, 2006, 01:01 AM
C. 8, of course *bangs his head against the wall* horns and tails can be called whatever you want them to be called, but that doesn't make them legs

_Huggle_Bunny_
February 26th, 2006, 01:24 AM
It Would Be A-14....Cause Ninetales has 9tales...Tauro Has 3 tales and 2 horn's

9+3+2=14

Solarys
February 28th, 2006, 02:28 AM

LOL, finally some1 got it... (sry i was offline for a few days ><)

Say, calling u a n00b doesnt necessarily make u a n00b :P - LOL

***************************************************************

OK, question #8 now...

If Cacturne, Jolteon and Zigzagoon can form one group, then Alakazam, Kadabra and ????? can form another similar group.

????? cannot be replaced by which one of these Pokemon?

a. Abra
b. Gorebyss
c. Porygon
d. Noctowl
e. Dusclops

Hint: Find out what they have in common.

~Archer~
February 28th, 2006, 05:30 AM
It's e. Dusclops.

What Cacturne, Jolteon and Zigzagoon have in common is their spiky, (Hair,thorns)

Alakazam, Kadabra, Abra, Gorebyss, Porygon and Noctowl all have a nose.
But Dusclops doesn't have a nose.

Solarys
February 28th, 2006, 10:54 PM
Sorry, but you are way off.

Another hint: their appearances don't matter AT ALL!!!

EDIT: Alakazam, Kadabra, Abra, Gorebyss, Porygon and Noctowl all have a nose.
But Dusclops doesn't have a nose.

FYI, if i put a Ralts/Kirlia/Gardevoir in there as well, the correct answer will still be the same. None of those dudes have a nose, lol... The reason i didnt put any of them in is that it'll be confusing and difficult to explain the answer.

Solarys
March 5th, 2006, 04:24 AM
OMG was that one too hard? How come no 1 's got it?

OK, i'll drop youse another hint:

Find out what attacks they have!

Hope that might help!

I have been looking at the moves ever since I saw you post this question
I can't understand how it took me so long to figure out, though <.<
The question is quite simple: e. Dusclops, Zigzagoon, Jolteon and Cacturne can all learn an electric type move and Abra, Kadabra and all Pokémon except Dusclops from the list you gave can learn a psychic type move.

Actually, Dusclops learns Future Sight, and that's a Psychic-type move.

B-Baller
March 17th, 2006, 02:06 PM
The answer is Abra. Alakazam, Kadabra, Gorebyss, Porygon, Noctowl and Dusclops can all learn Normal type level-up moves, while Abra only has Teleport, a Psychic type move. Cacturne, Zigzagoon and Jolteon can all learn Ground moves, so yeah.

Err...am I right?

Silverwing
March 17th, 2006, 06:53 PM
Cacturne, Zizagoon, and Jolteon all know the move Pin Missile by level.

So, I think the answer is A. Abra because Abra can only learn Teleport without TMs/Move Tutor/Egg.
