w00t!

I have returned from the flames of hell - tremble before me!!!

OK, time for some more Pokemon-related BRAIN TEASERS!!!

You must choose the correct answer and state the reason for choosing it in order to get a credit! The first person to score 100 points wins, and the scoresheet is reset.

Here's Q1:

If
Alakazam = 9988998999749987, and
Dusclops = 9679819788858481,
Then, what is Rayquaza's code?

Options:
a. 8299889833991279
b. 9991909988888786
c. 9228999928994799
d. 9838828255918171
e. 8299758379997499

The first person to come up with the correct answer for this question, along with an explanation, gets 5 points!

The answer is E. because 74=Z and 99=A, the last two letters in Rayquaza's name.

Yes, you got it!
It goes like this:
Every 2 numbers represent a letter's number from the alphabet taken away from 100.
e.g. A = 100 - 1 = 99, Z = 100 - 26 = 74.

RaikouSpecialLover: 5 points.

OK, Q2 is up, it is worth 3 points:

Which of these Pokemon is the odd man out?

1. Dusclops
2. Moltres
3. Sableye
4. Lugia
5. Absol

Hint: Their STATS do not matter.

I think the answer is Moltres.
All but Moltres can learn Shadow Ball from the TM.

Um, no, it's not that specific to what attacks they can learn...

But you're reasonably close!

Okay, how about this...
All except Dusclops were Shadow Pokemon in either Colosseum or XD?

Well, that went too far... lol...

Anyway, if you look closely at those 5 pokemon, the answer is OBVIOUS!!!

I've got two possible answers...

1. Sableye because it has nothing ON THE TOP of its head?
2. Lugia becasue it's the only high-class 00ber on the list? I'm totally stumped.

LOL OK, Sableye is right, not because its head, it's because Sableye is the ONLY pokemon in the list that doesnt have the ability PRESSURE!

I put Dusclops and Absol in there just to emphasize this - thay're nothing alike in appearance!

Question 3 for 10 points!!!

What is an anagram of the following sentence:

"I'm a dot in place." (Only LETTERS are concerned, not marks.)

Any sensible anagram counts, but NO misspellings!

RSL

Okay I got the previous one, my head must've been light then.

Anyway, a decimal point?

Solarys

Yes, that's one of them, but there are at least 3 others I can think of, LOL, see if you can find them out.
