    Two things I've been wondering about:
    1. If we guess right on the first clue, then submit a wrong guess on the second or third one, we get the 3 points for getting it right the first time, correct? Or if we guess right, guess wrong the second time and then guess correctly again the third time, it's still 3 points for the round, not 1?
    2. Are we allowed to know how many rounds there will be? Or when it will end?

    P.S.: I'm having so much fun with this! Remembering things I didn't know I knew or thought I had forgotten!

    1. If you guess correctly in the first round then yes, you get 3 points regardless of what you say in the following rounds.
    2. This is actually the last round of the game, so it will end in approximately 13 hours.

    You, guys, are evil. After seeing the first clue, I actually got the link to the Time Capsule, but too many Pokémon can have, at 100%, a Berry when traded to Gen 2 games. How are we supposed to guess? And a lot of this Pokémon come from Veridian Forest... "Unique item" explains better what is the right answer, but only if we see this clue and "100% Berry" together.
    Anyway, I had a lot of fun. Thanks for your work!

    I had narrowed it down to 2 after the second first clue...so of course I picked the wrong one. I thought it was too obvious.

    Should have known better.

    I hope you guys do this again! I've had so much fun!

    Can you explain the original clue for Round 20? I understood everything else, but that one made zero sense to me.

    The way I finally figured it out was that if you transfer a Pokemon from RBY to GSC, it would have a held item. "100% Berry" would mean that 100% of the time, it would be holding a Berry.

    With a few, this is only true with Red/Blue. With Yellow, some species will have a unique item. Pikachu is one of these. It has a Berry 100% of the time from Red/Blue but a Light Ball (the "unique item") from Yellow (if it's the partner Pikachu)

    This is where I found the info:
    List of Pokémon by wild held item (Generation II) - Bulbapedia, the community-driven Pokémon encyclopedia

    In Red, Blue, Yellow games, there are no held items. They are introduced for the first time in Gen 2 games. Also, Gen 2 games and Gen 1 games can communicate with Time Capsule only. It allows the player to trade Pokémon between these games.
    Trades with Time Capsule have some limitations, but also some interesting points: Pokémon, from Gen 1 where held items don't exist, are holding an item by default when traded to a Generation II game. These items are determined by certain factors and are fixed for some specific Pokémon species, like Pikachu (but only in Yellow).

    More than 50 Pokémon have always (so the 100% in the clue), as held item, a Berry (this is a type of berry that exists only in Gen 2 games) when traded in Time Capsule.
    One of those is Pikachu. But in Yellow, the starter Pikachu have a Light Ball instead. This is the only method to get a Light Ball in Gen 2 games and Pikachu is the only Pokémon that can have it as held item from Gen 1 games (so the clue "Unique item").

    I saw clue 1 before going to sleep and I was confused because Gen I has no Held Items. But yeah, you get that when you transfer some Pokémon to Gen II.

    A bit of explanation from my side of things.

    I wrote that clue with the intention of it being one of the more difficult ones, but I didn't take into account the fact that so many different Pokémon could all have a berry when traded over. Good job to those who figured that much out and I apologize for the confusion with it.

    This was our first time running this event so thank you for sticking with us as we worked out the kinks. I'm very happy with how it all went and I hope you had fun. We're hoping to run another edition sometime in the future so if you have any suggestions on how to improve it feel free to let me know in this thread or by messaging me.

    I'm going to be doing a final tally soon and then I will be announcing the winner here. Stay tuned for that!

    Congrats, @PokePal15!

    Here are my opinions:

    1- I enjoyed it.
    2- The clue for the last question was kind of confusing. I guess that's why it got changed.
    3- None that I can think of.
    4- Maybe the other regions?

    Congratulations, PokePal and Patrick!
    Also, woah, third place. I thought I'd end up much lower in ranking.
    As for questions...

    1. Yeah, it was a great fun!
    2. Well, mostly the first clue in final round.
    3. I... don't know, really. Maybe I'll come up with something later.
    4. Different regions, anime/spin-off games/manga edition... maybe a version dedicated to specific group of characters, like gym leaders or legendaries?

    That was a lot of fun, I am looking forward to next edition!
