Introduction

Welcome, welcome! Do you think you have what it takes? Are you knowledgeable in various subjects? Just know random facts? This is the PCX Trivia Challenge and we would like to challenge you to answer as many questions as you can. There might be a prize in it for you! Your hosts for this fabulous event are Retro Bug, Shining Raichu, and RetroRoller.
How To Play

It’s really simple, the questions are listed below in a spoiler tag. Look over them and answer each of them by yourself then you will send them in a PM to each of the host. This event is only open from September 24th through September 30th so we will not accept anything after September 30th. Your results can only be submitted to Retro Bug, Shining Raichu, and RetroRoller if you wish to have them counted.
Rules

Our number one rule is: Don’t Cheat. Yes, we know how easy it is to Google/search an answer but that takes the fun out of it! So, please don’t cheat and ruin this event.

Ask, right away! If you feel like any of the questions are unclear or you cannot decipher it.

No Teamwork. This is an individual challenge you may not work with anyone else. Now the voices in your head may be able to help you out.

No Complaints. Yeah, just don’t do it. It’s that simple.

You must post in this thread saying that you are entering. Don't post your answers here. They must be sent in a PM to each of the host.
Questions
There are a total of 50 questions and each question are worth a different amount of points. The highest amount of points you can earn is 170. Since we know that sometimes you can't remember things exactly there are leniency points if we feel like you deserve it. This means you should try and answer every single that we throw at you. You have an almost entire week before we need your results so there's no need for you to rush through them. Please, take your time and think things out and when we say think we mean think not search for the answers.
