    Default The Amazing Pokemon Race!

    Hello everyone. This is FPM, back from a break from Serebii with a new game. I would personally like to welcome you all to the Amazing Race - Pokemon Style. For all of you who don't know, the Amazing Race is a show where contestants race other teams around the world! In the Pokemon version of the race each player will pick two Pokemon to race with. On each leg of the race there are multiple challenges that the Pokemon will complete in order to find out where you are racing to. These challenges are spilt into four groups:

    Route Info Challenge- A basic challenge. After completion a hint on the next location in the race will be given.


    Detour- A choice between two different challenges, of which one will normally take longer to complete than the other. After completion a hint on the next location in the race will be given.

    Roadblock- Only one of a trainer's two Pokemon will be able to complete this challenge. The Pokemon selection will determine the length of the challenge. After completion a hint on the next location in the race will be given.

    Fast Forward (2 per race)- A special challenge that only one team may complete. All other attempts will be refused. If this challenge is completed the team will be able to race straight to the Pit Stop, or finish of the leg.

    Note: After completion of these challenges a hint will be given to each team on where to travel to next. The player will have to PM me back which the correct location before moving on. Based on how long it takes to PM me back minutes will be added to your total time.


    The goal of each leg of the race is to reach the Pit Stop, or finish. The last team to reach this point will be eliminated. Each challenge will add minutes to your time, and the team with the most time at the end will normally be eliminated. However, there are two special non-elimination legs over the course of the race, in which the last place team will not be eliminated, but will receive a time penalty for the next leg of the race.

    Rules:

    1. All SPPf rules apply. You know them, so follow them.
    2. Be nice to the other players. No cyber-bulling allowed.
    3. Be active. I understand if something comes up, but don't sign up if you don't plan to be active.
    4. Additional rules may be added at any time. This is my first original game, and if I see that a new rule is need, I won't hesitate to add it.
    5. Breaking any rules can result in a perma-ban from the game. If I'm in a crappy mood I won't even give you a warning. So don't break them.

    Sign-up:

    Team Color (Each team will have a different color):


    The first ten people to sign-up will be our contestants, so get to it. Welcome to the coolest and longest race of your life, the Amazing Pokemon Race.

    Well, I see someone likes to find loopholes.

    Anyway, we have our first three contestants, and fairly quickly too. Only seven spots left!

    Are you going to do the rule that the person starts 12 hours after they finish the previous leg?

    Welcome, one and all to the longest and hardest race of your life, the Amazing Pokemon Race! All of you know the rules of the race, so follow them. You all have your first location hint, and as soon as you solve it, you may need to the first stop on the race. Respect your fellow contestant, and put all of your heart into the race. Good luck to you all. You may start when I say go.

    Ready...Set...GO!!

    As a note to all: You can use any resources you have (even the internet) to solve the location hint. Also, there is a 48 hour limit to get your answers in. If you don't get the correct answer you will be placed in a random place in the standings.

    Hate to triple posts, but it's WAY over the deadline. The answer to the hint is...
    NICARAGUA!!
    So as far as the standings go (drum roll please):

    1st: john stewart
    2nd: Blue_Mew22
    3rd: SergeiDragunov
    4th: sasukeanditachi
    5th: rosso1111
    6th: Epwna is a Sceptile
    7th: kuriboh361
    8th: robincool98
    9th: .Wind.
    10th: suicune lover

    I will start the challenges tomorrow, and hopefully you all will help make this game a success. Also, you guys need to make this forum more active. Maybe discuss the TV show, or why you chose the Pokemon you did, are post some minor RP elements (make sure not to get us shut down.) Just try and keep the forum active, and enjoy the game.

    Last item of business, I am always looking for new challenge ideas, so if you have any ideas please PM me with them. I'd appreciate it, and it will keep this game fresh.

    Whenever I first got the question I was like "DUH, PANAMA!" Little did I realize it said "planned." :/

    Oh well. I remember when the Globetrotters were on that show. Epic stuff. I went to see those guys not long after the season ended.

    Really? I Googled it and it gave me a Wikipedia page on Nicaragua as the first result, so I was like, "yay!"

    I thought the GlobeTrotters were dumb when they failed to open that suitcase right away with the time. It said 6:34 or something. Every other team got it right away. =/

    Looks hows back finally!!

    Sorry for bailing on you guys. Cash was running short, so I didn't have internet for a while, and my summer vacation has been quite busy, between trying to find a new job (I just turned 16) and going through college crap. So, this game is, of course, dead, but if things settle down and I stick around SPPf for a while I'll start this game up again.

    Of course, if anyone else wants to take over the game, they are welcome to. All I ask is that you ask me for permission first. Again, sorry for bailing on you guys, and I hope you didn't miss me too much.

    Well, its not a matter of need, its a matter of want. If you want to do it, you can, but if you don't you don't have to.
