Get your thinking caps on—it's time for a game of Pokémon riddles! Ironic that it's made by the world's worst riddle-solver, but hey. ;)

The rules are pretty straightforward:

  • Each person gives a riddle for the next poster to solve! It can be simple, complicated, or outright bizarre!

  • Include the answer of your riddle at the bottom of your post, making sure it's wrapped in [SPOILER] tags!

  • When guessing the riddle above you, write it in a "before and after" format, and only check the answer after you guess. No peaking!

  • Have fun!

To clarify things further, here are some examples taken from the old thread:

Spoiler:
Example:
Poster 1
I'm hated by my foe
and I'm great with Venoshock
But all you really need to know
Is I evolve from Arbok.

Spoiler:
Seviper

Poster 2
Before: Seviper! Haha, how clever... I know what you're talking about...
After: I was right!

If my stats are just right;
I'm beside you at level 20.
But one thing you should know is;
I am the lightest of the three.

Spoiler:
Hitmontop


Poster 3
Before: It's Hitmontop!
After: I knew it.

...etc!


Alright then! I'll start us off with an easy one.

Speak not of my past,
It hurts to remember
In my eyes reflect this mask
I gaze at it and whimper

Spoiler:
The answer is Yamask. :)

    Before: Uh, I don't know anything about this Pokemon, but the riddle makes me think of Yamask. :/
    After: Ah, that was pretty easy. lol

    Whenever an attack comes my way,
    I will try to strike back
    And if the attack connects anyway,
    I will take you with me as payback

    Spoiler:
    Wobbuffet, probably was too easy.

    Before: That sounds like Wobuffet's move set!
    After: Yup. ^^

    In dungeons I set up shop
    And sell goods to make an easy buck.
    Pay the price or I get mad,
    when my family comes you're outta luck.

    Spoiler:
    Why, that's Kecleon of course!

      Before: There can only be one who would do that sort of thing for the bling.
      After: I was right. Heh, I'm always right after all.

      Down, down, deep beneath the darkest blues...
      I claim myself a throne, untouched by daylight.
      A reason to be told, I exiled myself from them.
      For whenever I move, disaster is sure to follow.

      After: Oooh, it was Kingdra! I need to read more Pokédex entries, haha. ^_^;

      In the cradle of darkness
      I cackle with glee,
      Knowing nothing can hurt me.
      Then they came along,
      Revealing my one weakness.
      At least some of them are good to eat.

          Before: Victreebel
          After: Correct

          As I grow my fur becomes more lustrous
          I manipulate fire to catch prey
          I'm based on Kistune Folklore
          and I become wiser as I age
          The answer could be one or the other
          but if you know Suzie personally, you'll know which one to enter

          Who am I?

          Spoiler:
          Vulpix. Good guess if you thought Ninetales

          Watch as I adapt and grow

            Before: Eevee
            After: Correct

            I must admit yours wasn’t half bad as I was going to initially say Kecleon due to its ability to adapt but so does Eevee. I then reread it multiple times and realized it was all hints towards Eevee evolutions(Day and Night, Fire and Ice, Water and Grass with Stormy being Electric).

            Now as for mine....

            Dark as day, black as night
            No Trainer shall escape my sight
            I seek out those weak and strong
            Even Champions fear my annoying song
            Numbers so vast, even players must ask.. “Again!?”

            Who am I?

            Before: Haha, I get the feeling it's Zubat. The last line was a giveaway. xP
            After: It's Zubat alright!

            My friends and I herald from times of old
            Back then I was king, or so I'm told
            With each new generation there has been none like me;
            That is, one without an evolutionary tree
            But what I lack in evolution I make up for in strength and speed
            To unlock my full potential, a Key Stone you'll need

            Before: Urk... Both of my guesses were embarrassingly off the mark, ahaha. Let's just leave it at that, shall we? :D
            After: Oh, so it was Aerodactyl? And it was supposed to be an easy one, too? It's official—I'm the worst at riddles. :(

            In an ancient kingdom, I was created as a gift for the royal family
            However, I have since been taken away to a remote plateau
            My music box soothes all of the Pokémon around me
            But my flowers cause a beloved volcano to go "achoo"

            Who am I?

            Spoiler:
            The answer is Magearna! ^^ I took lots of inspiration from the 19th movie, hehe. =)

              I evolve into this form by Stone
              Some marvel at my Petal Dance
              Others at my large petals
              They are the largest in the world
              But if you have allergies I ask
              You do not come too close.

              Answer
              Spoiler:
              It's my favourite Kanto Pokemon Vileplume.

                Guess: Vileplume
                Answer: Vileplume <- I play too much Gen 1... kill me now lol.

                @Epilogue: I think you take too much credit in the worst category: I hold the title.

                Anyways for the riddle...

                They say I’m a stuff of legend for my wings are unique.
                Seven colors you say, what will others think?
                I fly continuously without fail with a Rainbow on my tail
                Who am I?

                Spoiler:
                Ho-OH. Not the greatest riddle but it should be obvious.

                  You never answered mine.... but as for yours... a mouse Pokemon. Definitely not Pikachu but while I play Generation 1 a lot, you forget I watched the Anime several times over. I seem to recall a Pokemon who hated getting its fur dirty in Unova(before Serena’s Fennekin came along) and its Trainer was snotty and didn’t like dirt either(wherein she had a run-in with Iris and she used Ash’s Snivy to battle her). I have the picture in my brain and after looking up it’s name, it’s Minccino? Looks at spoiler and appears I’m correct(Episode I’m thinking of uses it’s evolution).

                  *Agh forgot my riddle.

                  My tail is lit with a burning flame. The brighter it glows, the more energetic I become. Some trainers pick me as their first Pokémon. Who am I?

                  Spoiler:
                  Charmander... easy I know

                  Uh... this is bad, because I quoted your post after you edited but before reloading, so I spoiled the answer... hahaha. ^_^; Still, I would have guessed Charmander!

                  You'll need to be familiar with Pokédex entries to guess this one. xP

                  Snug and warm in the grass I sleep
                  Till dusk begins its nightly creep
                  And when the stars shine bright
                  I take flight
                  Enlivened by their glowing light

                  Who am I?

                    Thinking Illumise or some bug Pokémon that rises at dusk. Looks at answer... Ledian... ack well I was only off by a Generation. At least I got the Typing right,

                    My eyes are alluring and my song is quite catchy. So catchy it puts people and Pokemon to sleep! I’m known as the Balloon Pokemon but I’m known by another name? Who am I?

                    Puff, Jigglypuff!

                      Before: I am pretty certain that is Jigglypuff.
                      After: It is. :)

                      Good Evening Dear Trainer Don't you know
                      I am the Ace Pokemon of one of the Elite Four
                      Please do not shudder when you hear my cry
                      And you may wonder why do I look so sad
                      It's because I know my trainer's lifespan.

                      Spoiler:
                      It's Gothitelle.

                        To know a trainer’s lifespan implies a Psychic Type Elite Four member. Kanto, Hoenn, Kalos and Alola don’t have Psychic users and from those three that remain(Johto(Will), Sinnoh(Lucian) and Unova(Caitlin)), their aces are Xatu, Bronzong(Gallade in Platinum) and Gothitelle. Only one that makes sense is Gothitelle. Checks answer: Correct.

                        Many have come to say I’m adorable and to that I say thank you. I evolve from an unstable Pokemon but that is no surprise for the manner in which I evolve is unique. To say it’s without tender loving care though is unwise. Who am I?
