Pokemon Riddles
This was on another forum but I'm going start one here:

Okay, so it's a basic riddle thread. Some one makes a riddle, some one else answers it and we all have fun. Sounds nice?

Guesser Rules:

1. Keep your hands and feet inside the vehicle at all times. (Don't SPAM, FLAM or whatever else breaks the rules).

2. One guess at a time.

3. EVO rule is in effect (that means that if you guess the (pre-)evolution of the Pokemon from the riddle it will not be counted as correct, you must guess the actual Pokemon in question).

4. If you get it right you get a point.

5. I'll (try to) keep a tally of the score.

6. Emphasis on TRY

7. Anyone can join at anytime. (it just might get hard to catch up after a while )

Riddle Writer's Rules:

1. Regular rules go for you too.

2. Only people who have already correctly guessed at least 5 riddles may post a riddle (this is to avoid bad riddles).

3. PLEASE ONLY ONE RIDDLE AT A TIME!!!! If you violate this your riddle will become null and void.

4. DO NOT BE VAGUE!!!! This just makes it frustrating for every one and it doesn't make you any smarter or everyone else really dumb. (To give an example of vagueness, if your riddle includes a clue that states it can learn a water, fire, ground and a poison type attack that's too vague).

5. Don't be direct. Yeah I know, it's confusing when I say don't be vague then I say don't be direct but it's true when it comes to riddles. Making a riddle is about misleading people so, just don't be too blunt.

6. After 7 incorrect guesses, you can post a hint if you want.

7. After 12 incorrect guesses, you can post a second hint or say the answer.

8. After 18 incorrect guesses, you can post a third hint or say the answer.

9. After 22 incorrect guesses, you must say the answer.

Everybody got that?

Ok, current riddle:

Spinning these things around and around.
They hardly ever touch the ground.
I may be a pain in your side.
For I steal the greener side.

Oooh. I know now what it is... Is it Deerling and Sawsbuck?

coolcatkim22 April 18th, 2011 9:07 AM

Nope, please try again.

Also, after this post, I'm going to start waiting for a least three guesses before I confirm or deny the guesses.

Jesspke April 18th, 2011 9:54 AM

Oooo I think I know who it is but I dunno the name :/...

Ok, it's not that, but I've come down to one Pokémon I can think of...

Is it possibly Castform? :P

starlightmint72 April 19th, 2011 7:34 PM

my guess is kirlia and gallade. it doesn't quite match up, but i'll edit this if i think of anything else.

Mattxy8 April 20th, 2011 11:31 AM

my guess is Slowking and Deerling...

coolcatkim22 April 20th, 2011 8:40 PM

No, no and no.

I'll wait for three more guesses then I'll post a hint.

starlightmint72 April 20th, 2011 9:14 PM

i'm pretty sure that goldeen is one of them, but i'm not so sure of the other part. the best i can think of right now would be shaymin...

gunnerpow7 April 21st, 2011 1:07 AM

Okay... Is it... Nidoran (F)and Nidoran (M)?

Stillerxy7 April 21st, 2011 2:34 AM

Id have to go with Nidoran(m) and Nidorn(f) also

lionrt60 April 21st, 2011 3:05 AM

Pretty sure one is Nincada/Ninjask/Shedinja

Nincada digs and when it evolves it becomes 2 seperate evolutions...I could be wrong...

Mattxy8 April 21st, 2011 2:20 PM

Ladyba and Goldeen? probably not, but Lady plus Seaking

coolcatkim22 April 22nd, 2011 7:22 PM

Um, I guess the correct answer was kind of gotten um, you guys kind of got confused.

Okay, when I said "It refers to two different Pokemon." I didn't mean the riddle could descibe two different Pokemon but rather that one line would talk about one of the Pokemon and the next line would talk about the other.
If you don't get what I mean just look at my explaination:

In the beginning, I am called a lady.
Goldeen is nicknamed the "Water Queen".

By the end I am called a sir.
Seaking has King in it's name.

But I am always know as royalty.
Both King and Queen are Royal terms.

In the beginning I dance.
Goldeen often looks like it's dancing in the water.

By the end I dig.
Seaking bores into rcoks.

But I do both acts at different times of the year.
Goldeen tend to swim gracefully during mating season while Seaking bores into rocks during it's mating season. However, both of them have mating seasons during different times of the year.

In the beginning, I go up with the flowers.
Goldeen goes up stream in the Spring to mate.

By the end I go down with the leaves.
Seaking would go back down stream after it has done breeding in the fall (assuming, of course, that they don't die after breeding like Salmon do, which I hadn't thought of when I first made this riddle).

But in the end more beginnings will appear.
By the end of the mating seaon more Goldeens will be born (also, if you hadn't figured it out already, a begining in this riddle actually means Goldeen while a end really just means Seaking).

So, I'm giving a point to starlightmint72, even though she broke a rule and didn't get it entriely correct. Noramlly I wouldn't do this but you guys weren't quite getting it and I wanted to throw a bone since it's just the first riddle.

Anyways, next riddle:

I eat, I sleep and train all day,
I do this all while in a cave,
I'm tied up in almost every way.
Some say I'm bulky,
some say I'm gutsy,
but I am always very messy.

(From now on, the riddles I post will be just one Pokemon, unless I change my mind.)

darkpokeball April 22nd, 2011 9:06 PM

Uh...I'd have to guess Makuhita!

starlightmint72 April 22nd, 2011 9:26 PM

yeah, that's makuhita. if it's not, then i don't know what else it would be...

The Void April 23rd, 2011 7:08 AM

I'm guessing it's Makuhita...

coolcatkim22 April 23rd, 2011 11:57 AM

Okay, one point for Darkpokeball

Next Riddle:
I can be seen in blue or yellow but never in red.
I will really wrack your head.
My type is very puzzling as it is different from what is read.

starlightmint72 April 23rd, 2011 4:13 PM

my guess is sandslash...probably wrong, but then again, it's a guess.

Mattxy8 April 23rd, 2011 6:19 PM

Porygon? the most puzzling pokemon I could think of :P

Lady Gaga April 23rd, 2011 6:44 PM

I can be seen in blue or yellow but never in red.
I will really wrack your head.
My type is very puzzling as it is different from what is read.


Cant be found in Pokemon Red.
Has huge pincers on its head.
Its Red/Blue pokedex entry says: If it fails to crush the victim in its pincers, it will swing it around and toss it hard. This is usually something a Fighting type Pokemon would do, not a Bug Type.

coolcatkim22 April 25th, 2011 11:36 AM

No, no and no.

Any more guesses?

PartiallyInsaneWhimsicott April 25th, 2011 12:01 PM


I'm right. I know I am. Tell me I'm right.

Mattxy8 April 25th, 2011 12:06 PM


Because I just remember that in 1 episode Scyther (and another pokemon -not saying the name :P- ) cannot see red or they go blind with Rage!

starlightmint72 April 25th, 2011 12:38 PM

it probably is victreebel, now that i think about it...

coolcatkim22 April 25th, 2011 2:20 PM

No and no.
I need two more guesses before I post a hint.

All times are UTC -8. The time now is 8:41 AM.
