Welcome

Our old universe has
fallen into impossible chaos and destruction, but the Legendaries will save us; are saving us; have saved us. Soon many lives and memories will fill this new world, and give it purpose.

Events

Terrene continues to heat
up, both in temperature and in conflict. Beta is asking for spies to infiltrate Omega's camp, while Dentelle simply wants to inquire after the scientist's progress. Later in the season, Beta is hosting his annual crater city tournament, where people can test their Pokemon and their leadership and strategies against one another.

Season

Summer will be here until
September. The heat of summer is here in full force, as well as the accompanying summer thunderstorms. Bug, electric, and fire types all thrive while others wilt under these conditions.

Clover Hunt -
Staff Challenge!

Now it's your turn to try! This is an optional add-on to the Clover Hunt. The purpose? To have you, the players, challenge us, the staff. As Kaien, Rixie, and I are all privy to the answers to the riddles of the main event, we are excluded from solving those riddles. In light of this fact, we've decided to give you the chance to contribute to the event by creating your own riddles for us to solve.

These riddles should follow the same mechanics as the main event, in that they are all describing a particular species of Pokemon, a Pokemon that has appeared somewhere on this site. When you choose a pokemon, be sure to look to find an old thread that has that pokemon spawned in it - if it has not been spawned on Terrene, then it can't be used for a riddle! In addition to figuring out what species it is, we will be tasked with finding a thread that the pokemon has spawned in - though without a specific clover to find, any thread that Pokemon has been in counts - so choose wisely! Try using Pokemon from the threads in the IC Archives, if you're looking for something really old.

Each riddle should be listed separately from others, in order to ensure proper tracking of it. Reply below each time you come up with a riddle, and the three of us will try to see if we can solve it when we have time. You can feel free to post as many or as few riddles you would like - but be careful not to overlap a species answer with others! You can collaborate with other players on the riddles too, if you would like- in fact, it is recommended. Hints can be provided at your discretion.

The rewards for us are similar to your own. The difference is that we will only start with a pool of 100 coins for each riddle - since we can only split it up to 3 ways. And in alignment with the normal event, we will only get rewards for the first 14 riddles. If you choose to throw more at us, it will simply be for fun, and we will not receive any additional coins. Also, we will have 2 weeks from the moment you post the riddle to solve it. Once those two weeks are up, feel free to edit the answer in and shame us for being unable to solve it!

So? BRING. IT. ON. TERRENE!

I'm going to take a shot at this riddle thing.


"I live and breathe cool,

I thrive in the land which is vast and deep, and thus unconquered."

[Hint: Think about the word cool and all its definitions. Vanillite is too cold.]

[ANSWER: Piplup. It's a penguin, and usually people think of the frozen tundra for penguins, right? Also, "vast and deep" is a reference to the ocean, since penguins swim instead of flying. Also, Piplup looks like it's wearing a tux, and tuxes are cool.]

[WINNER: No one. I made it too hard :III]

"My home is not where you'd expect,

My surface obscures the fighting spirit that defines me."

[ANSWER: Crabrawler. The first line is a reference to the fact that it's not a water-type for some ungodly reason. The second line is.... Further elaborating at the stupidity of Crabrawler's true, deceptive typing.]

[WINNER: Kaien. Probably because he was subject to my ranting about the injustice of Crabrawler's dumb typing.]

Okay okay, so here's one from me for now! I hope it's not too vague, I'm bad at this. ;_;

When in my element, you will only see gold.
My specialty is not my type.

Edit 30-03: I'll give a small hint since nobody's guessed it yet!

This Pokémon's specialty, that is not its type, is poison.

Edit: 06-04: OKAY time's up, and two of our contestants ran out of attempts too. :(

The answer is... Umbreon! Its element is darkness/ the night, and if you encountered one in the dark, the gold rings on its body would stand out the most, as they glow in the dark.

Its "specialty" is... poison, as shown by pokedex entries: When agitated, this Pokémon protects itself by spraying poisonous sweat from its pores.

There are no winners, sadly. :(

Here's another riddle from me. Please note that I added a hint to the previous post! :D


"No matter what, I will always play my song,
Hear it once and remember for very long.

Humans would say we all look like males; the fools!
But there is a difference in our looks."

EDIT: So this riddle was waaay easier than my previous one apparently. xD The answer is Kricketune!
We've got three winners: Rixie, Kaien and Jani. Congrats! :D
