This is copypasta from my 2009 thread.

Where is trivia?

It'll be held in the Psypoke chatroom. Details on how to join #psypoketrivia will be given on the 13th.

What are the rules?

1.) Do not spam or flood the channel. Flooding means sending text into the chatroom line after line. This is the #1 rule and will result in a ban that cannot be appealed.
2.) Complaining. If you think something is unfair and very important, PM me and I might sort it out at the end. All text in the chatroom is judged by what appears on my screen first, not yours. Any other complaints should be sent to krisp@ijustdontcare.com.
3.) Using colors will get you banned. I'll warn everyone at the beginning of trivia not to use colors.
4.) Being a general annoyance. If you have an answer, by all means, please say it and hope your guess is right. Answering "MUDKIPZ LOL" or something equally stupid to every question will most likely get you perma banned from the chatroom(s).
5.) If Rhapsody and Frost decide to defend their trivia King/Queen titles, do not complain if they win.

That's about it on the rules, I'm pretty lenient.

What kind of questions will there be?

There will be 11 questions for RBY/FRLG, 11 GSC/HGSS, 11 RSE, 11 DPP, and 6 Psypoke questions. 50 questions in total.

What are the prizes?

1st place: Pick from list (see below)
2nd place: Gets second pick from list (see below)
3rd place: Gets the last voucher on the list (see below)

AWESOME PRIZES:
- Name Change
- Custom Rank
- THREE Pokemon of your choice via WiFi. They will be legit except Arceus. They can be holding any item too.
*staff is not eligible for prizes, if someone on the staff happens to win, I'll pick the top 3 non staff

That's it on trivia. Please post comments/questions if any arise.


Trivia is over! Here are the final scores:

Serpentsounds - 15
Rhapsody - 13
Ace - 12
MewChamp - 7.5

TK - 2.5
DP - 1.5
Rex - 1
EP - 1
Shinashu - 1
CyanYoshi - 1
Ethereal_Ice - 1
Krisp - 1 (I got a point for stumping!)

Thanks to everyone who participated; I hope we see another good turn out in the future!

If anyone is having doubts as to whether or not they should attend because it's unfamiliar, DO IT. Psypoke trivias were insane amounts of fun, and it's a shame we have them so rarely now. Don't miss this opportunity! The more people there, the more exciting it ends up being!

I'm in! But I also have a question: About how long does each round last? I don't want to miss any rounds, buts I might be busy one night and won't be able to come to the computer.

No, but there's a behavioral restriction, if you act 12 you'll most likely be kicked out, but if you are 12 and act like a mature human you won't bother anyone.

It will only be held one night - the 13th at 8pm EST. It might last a little past 9 or until 10.

I didn't mean to offend you, sorry if I did, "12 year old" is a pretty standard insult on the internet.

Click the chatroom link in my first post and go to "java applet." If it asks you a question, hit yes. I promise there are no viruses involved.

Yeah, it would probably be a good idea to get a feel for IRC before the trivia starts. Go to the java applet like Krisp said, and if people happen to be talking, just chat for a while. It's pretty easy to use.

To be able to use the Java Applet, you'll need the JRE installed on your computer. I'd assumed that most people had it, but if you don't...you can install Java, or use Mibbit. Here's an easy Mibbit link to #psypoke IRC if you want to test it out.

I am excited for this and the ridiculous typos that will ensue. My goal this time is to out-typo sawable while still managing to have a comprehensible answer.

...I seem to be a fan of overcomplicated sentences today! But yeah, it also gives me a chance to test out my speed-typing skills. I hope we get a good turnout. >:D

Ok, I lost dimond and don't need a name change, the only thing left is the custom rank(and the glory of beating Frost and Rhapsody). If only i were good at the anime and the games before GBA...

Yay it's a Saturday and a time I can easily make. What a delicious early birthday present this will make. A fun filled trivia night. :D Thanks Krisp and everyone else who put this together. I know this isn't specifically for me, but it's something that I can treat myself too.

Also Rhaps I shall out typo you, because I am just that bad at typing.

No, you can't. The only feasible way you could IRC on a DSi is if it had a javascript-enabled web browser (I don't own one so I can't say). Even then, it'd be difficult to play trivia, because it's kinda fast paced. Really the only way to enjoy the full experience would be to use an actual computer.

Is it? My mom doesn't even know I'm doing Psypoke forums. I didn't tell my mom that I signed up for this place either! It doesn't matter, because I told her a week ago. She threw a mighty Asian fit and grounded me (still with labtop) for a couple weeks, but she didn't make me get off this place.
