You would prefer the puzzles to be more challenging, hmm? Is this a common theme with everyone else or do you guys prefer easy/moderately taxing puzzles? When there's been hard puzzles in the past people have complained about not being able to do them, so which is better?

hahaha, i really just want some good puzzles...but as to 'challenging', it would be not to the extent that would blow are minds. XD
something like this week's puzzles are very good type of challenge level, i would say.

I tend to make easier puzzles unless I make it harder on accident. The next two puzzles one of them is going to be extremely easy (but I had fun making the things for it) and the other one will also be easy but possibly also time consuming. So they're pretty low in difficulty but as long as people have fun right?

I didn't really think about difficulty with the ones I made but I hope they weren't too hard... I know some people got stuck on the last of the maths questions but I don't think any have been that bad otherwise. XD

Thanks for clarification.

The math one was just a little hard I think because you had to take all that time to track down the numbers and by the time you did that you're already feeling like you've done too much math. Personally, I don't mind hard puzzles, but I like the kinds that don't require doing a lot of research, like work searches and ones like that.

I can guarantee you that there will be no researching at all for the next two puzzles! These two also don't really require too much if you know your Pokémon either I don't think. But next weeks are absolutely zero research. After that? I don't know I haven't thought that far haha. But I will definitely keep that in mind!

Ahhh yeah. I remembered that I didn't change the first post when I was posting the answers. I'll definitely be sure to do it from now on I'm sorry. :( But you can also check the twitter for when the new puzzles come out if you use it. Or just check the last post here if there is one for any updates as well.

Would it also help if I put the types in the title? Since when doing the puzzles I sometimes forget a few things (like switching the type from Psychic to Ice on the puzzle page last time as well. My brain was just ... not here while putting up the last puzzles I'm so sorry).

Aw, I forgot to send my answers

I do have a question about the last rhyme though, I was pretty sure it was Lapras, but what's with the "Friday treat" thing?

Bah, I only found out about this after missing about 8 puzzles (judging from the badges other people already have). I can't possibly catch up now.

In GSC and HGSS, there's a Lapras surfing around in Union Cave every Friday.

If you win a Fire-type puzzle in the future you'll just get Blaine's badge instead of a future league's badge and the same for other types, don't worry. Missing them doesn't mean you can't complete it. :D

And yeah, 'Friday treat' was about the Union Cave Lapras haha.

Yes, I read the rules, I know how badges are gained. I was just saying that I'll always have fewer badges than some other people (such as yourself) just because I came in late.

The PokeTrivia League will continue as long as people are interested. So if people are still doing the puzzles after going through all the regions I'll just go around and continue doing puzzles until I can't keep this going or until no one has much of an interest anymore. Also I might be planning one or two dark type badges for those who have missed badges in the past and want to get them earlier than waiting for the type to come around (and by then they might want to get say ... Flannery's badge instead of Blaine's because they have more Hoenn badges than Kanto badges).

If anyone had any suggestions or anything I'm free to hear them! I made it so each region has a separate emblem so someone can join it on one region and obtain those regions' badges despite not being around for the last region. Also the dark type and other things I tried to come up with to make up for loss weeks.

New puzzles are up! One is extremely easy and should take like a minute while the other one is going to be time consuming so make sure you have some time on your hands. Have fun! ♥

This is the first time I've not been sure about getting them all right haha, was a lot of fun though! I really admire the creativity you're putting into these puzzles - I'd never have thought to do half of them in a lifetime lmao. They were really fun (though my art skills have been put to shame </3), good job! Can't wait for next week :D

Same here, I'm unsure about a couple of my answers

At least I didn't forget to send them over this time, yay! I really enjoyed both puzzles again this time, the PokeMail wasn't as easy as you thought, and the Bug puzzle didn't take that long, I connected the dots as I was plotting, and I kept wondering what monstrosity would come out, but in the end the Pokemon wasn't that disfigured, hehe.

hehe glad to hear that I'm not always correct (in fact I'm never correct) oh how easy or difficult a puzzle is. :'3

Anyways this one might be extended a week to give me more time to work on the next two puzzles. I have things in mind but they'll take a little bit of time sooo yeah. Look forward to them as they'll be the last two puzzles before XY comes out. ♥

Oo, this is exciting! Hopefully we'll get to see some pretty Fairy-types make an entrance soon after ;D I'm thinking of a "how many Swirlix's can you eat in one go" contest myself.

Your Swirlix comment made me imagine a whole horde of them and that gave me an idea. I'd like to see a kind of matching puzzle with a bunch of the same Pokemon over and over again, but with slight alterations that aren't immediately noticeable.

That is a fabulous idea and I am totally keeping it in mind for a potential later puzzle. With that said if anyone has any ideas for potential puzzles then feel free to PM them to me! Coming up with these are often no easy feat so getting ideas would be fabulous!

That said I had a wonderful idea for a puzzle but then I realized that I wouldn't be able to do it with just one type. At least not any recent ones. So either I do a puzzle that doesn't have a typing that acts like a Wild Card (like how the Dark type would) ooor I wait until one type where I think I can pull it off. Decisions decisions.

If it's doable with two types you could just make it bigger and have that as the only puzzle for the week and give both badges from it?

I might but at the same time there's still that problem that I currently can't do it until next region because of the types that are available for the puzzle (hinthint?). So if I do it that way I still have to wait. There iiis one type that I can do it with buut we've already done the type for this region oops.
