Yeah. That's the problem. I think the thread is more than two months old and I'm having trouble locating it. There are only two caption contest threads, that I do know.
EDIT: Found it. All winners in that thread (linking posts instead of the thread obviously):
First winner announcement - you'll find I nailed it word for word even though I couldn't find the thread, picture used to be in topic post but is gone now.
Second winner announcement - Announcement used post links this time. That's post 44, go up to 40 and 41 or click the links, either works.
BTW, look at the new picture in that last post and read some of the captions. The ensuing round was a good one. Two captions: "Perhaps we gave Victini a little TOO much chili sauce" and "Mom! Victini's on fire again!" could have both won, and I used a weather forecast reference that I personally didn't think could top those two myself, but...
Links are neccessary for me to be able to fully confirm who won the contest, rather than just a word-of-mouth type of thing. I'm not saying that you're lying or anything, I just want to make sure everything is done fairly.
I actually won the first two contests, and was a co-winner of the second of those (so you'll find two winners in that one). Do I really need links? Just checking in for the first time in a few days and getting caught up. I do recall in the first, it was the Nimbasa City toy set with N and Hilbert (I think), and my last-second entry, "From this model, I built Nimbasa City" ended up being the best of all, Forever liking the double meaning of "model" (N was twirling a cube, so the model could be the cube or the city set).
BTW, what is going on with Forever no longer being available? Set up the poll, and now retired?
I started a walkthrough of Light Platinum last year, at the same time fixing bugs (mainly movement permissions, but a couple of graphical bugs as well as adding a Pokémon that could not be caught, anyhow, anywhere). I took a break in Serenity City and stayed there through a spin on Black 2 / White 2, which I've now beaten the E4 on and am delaying post-E4 activities. Since Light Platinum is Hack of the Year now, I figured I'd best get back to work on that. Deserves a full walkthrough like some of those found on GameFAQs (heck, you never know, maybe I'll even try to have it hosted there!).
Actually, they straight up hacked the Ghost Sprite itself as the starter. This sprite was used to mask Gastly, Haunter, and Cubone in the Pokemon Tower in lavender Town. Also, the Lavender Town event is actually a main story plot, idk why, it could do without it, but it gives you Gastly and whatnot. <3
Regarding that Red hack, I had never heard of that. A game where the main character can be killed isn't really for me. I believe the Ghost in question would be this Marowak from Lavender Town's Pokémon Tower based on my knowledge of the generation. I guess you could say that the post-game is the shortest in the games! :D
Joking aside, I'm busily working on a hack walkthrough right now. Never saw myself doing something like that, but I'm making great progress, so I'm keeping at it. :D
Yeah, let's not talk about the member himself, ok? :c That isn't very nice.
But ya know, it is one of those creepypasta things. They have so many things like that for so many games and they are myths.
However, there was one instance where a person "had" a black cartridge of a Pokemon Red game he got from ebay, where the only starter Pokemon you were able to recieve was the Ghost sprite from Pokemon Tower. It only had one move, it never missed, and it literally OHKO "killed" the opponen'ts Pokemon, and the opponent. At the end of the game, many years later, you yourself fend for your life against the Ghost, and die yourself. It was obviously fake as the storyteller had suddenly "lost" his cartridge in order to provide proof after a, but had gotten so much fandom that there was actually a ROM made from it and was released all over the place!
Nothing about it seemed like a question at all, rather it seemed more like a topic for discussion, which is not what that thread is used for. But the Diamond Dust is supposedly supposed to happen today on Black 2 and White 2.
