are you ready to call yourself a pokémon champion?

well, you're not quite there, yet.... pokemon champions have a wealth of knowledge about the world of pokemon after all, and yours is to be tested! nevermind beating all 8 gyms in a test of strength, this is a test of knowledge. in this event, you will be tested on three things:


Pokémon Abilities

Pokémon Gaming

Pokémon Themselves

you will be tested in a variety of ways! be ready for a wealth of riddles and trivia questions to be thrown your way! do you have the knowledge required to call yourself a pokemon master, trainer?

yeah, i do. so what are the rules?

either myself (Sydian), Roni or Flowerchild will post one trivia question and one riddle each day. you have approximately 48 hours from the time the post goes up to answer the questions correctly! in order to encourage discussion about the answers, you're free to use the main event thread. just make sure you're clear when you have submitted your final answer in your post.

as a forewarning, i wouldn't copy other people's answers just because you may think they're right. they may be, they may not be. what do you think is the right answer?
justice? righteous? keep that muk to yourselves!

trivia

What is N's full name?

riddle

I have existed since the beginning. For years, I have eased the weight on the shoulders of those so that they can withstand their trials and tribulations, even if only for a moment. My very existence serves to stoke fear into the heart of other Pokemon. (ability)

Uhh

For trivia:
Spoiler:
I remember N having a stupid and stupid long name, so I can get behind Natural Harmonia Gropius so I'll go with that


For riddle:
Spoiler:
I don't think Moxie since it isn't a gen 3 ability, so Intimidate is the one that makes the most sense since it has also been really present in competitive. Will have to give it a better thought tho.

I totally remember this. (Man, I miss B/W!) N stands for Natural Harmonia Gropius (sp? I hope spelling isn't a factor because I don't know if it's Gopius or Gropius???)


Riddle Answer:

If a Pokemon strokes fear to the other as a way to release strength, it must be Intimidate.
