10 Years of History - PokéCommunity Quiz
PC history quiz
Hosted by Forever
What does this event involve?

Love PC? Here's a quiz about it! To celebrate 10 years, this is a quiz which asks 100 questions! The catch is that you'll need to PM me your answers and not post them here. If you do I'll probably cry - or be disappointed, whichever fits. :3

If you answer just one half of the question you get only one point, answer the question fully and you'll get all the points. Every "when" question will relate to both the month and year.

Oh and guess what? If you need help, you're free to ask just one staff member up to three questions, if they don't know, too bad, you'll have to find it on your own. And as to whether that staff member will want to answer is also unknown, too! Obviously you cannot ask me, either. However if I find out you've asked more than three questions you'll be disqualified, sorry! It's just because a lot of these are really hard and you may need some help. There's a few staff members who'll know certain questions but I won't specify them. Also if you're asking, don't do it publicly please. You can only ask that one staff member, too, so choose wisely.
Tier 4 PC supportership! And emblems for those who participate.

A little late but gonna get started on this now! Hopefully I know at least a bit of the answers >_o

Meganium September 27th, 2012 7:24 PM

Doing this quiz actually teaches me a lot about the history of PC, which I find really amazing. I'm still on the hunt for more answers though!

Brendino September 27th, 2012 10:23 PM

I've been working on this the past few days, learning a lot of things about PokeCommunity's history! There's no way I'll be able to get all 100 done, but I'll try to get as many as I can in the time available.

Treecko September 27th, 2012 10:32 PM

Don't think i'm quite experienced enough to know all of these. I know some of them though.

Hikamaru September 27th, 2012 10:42 PM

I so want that supportership...

Managed to get a lot of answers in just a few minutes though.

Cid September 29th, 2012 10:11 AM

I think I filled in around twenty or so answers from memory. The rest needed research, but man, remembering some of the old stuff while being introduced to all these trivial yet interesting pieces of PC history is fun.

I'm still just halfway through though, and I'm not sure if I'll make it.

Affliction September 29th, 2012 2:12 PM

I've sent a few answers, I'll do more tomorrow. A few that happened before I joined I knew quite well.

Harley Quinn September 29th, 2012 2:50 PM

The Shiny Umbreon in the Corner September 29th, 2012 7:38 PM

It was hard but also fun xD
Anyway I just sent mine to Forever!
Good luck everyone! :D

Oryx September 29th, 2012 8:06 PM

Omg that was so difficult but I think I got almost all of them!

Virtual Headache September 29th, 2012 8:37 PM

Just sent in the answers, but I was unable to look for some due to a lack of time.

Arcanine September 29th, 2012 9:13 PM

Out of the 40 or 50 questions I answered I bet I got 5 right. XD

It was fun looking back at some threads and saying "I remember that..." or seeing some old names I had forgotten.

vaporeon7 September 30th, 2012 4:07 PM

I submitted some answers to the ones I knew. It's a shame I didn't have the time to give it a good hard go though.

The Shiny Umbreon in the Corner September 30th, 2012 5:11 PM

Only a few hours everyone! Good luck :D
