    POSTDOG2GENGAR HAS RETURNED, AND WITH AN ALL-NEW ROUND OF THE POKEGYM'S BIGGEST HIT TRIVIA SENSATION: WHO WANTS TO BE A POKEMILLIONAIRE!!!

    Well, well, it is I, Regis Postdog again, and with an all-new round of Pokemillionaire. Now, to celebrate the arrival of the new game show on ABC, Super Millionaire, I will make Pokemillionaire history by featuring Lifelines at your disposal!!!

    But, let's not jump into things. First, I'll review the rules for those of you who do not know them. If you do know them, then go ahead and skip down to the part about the new lifelines; you'll want that.

    Ok, for you newbies out there, here's how it's done. Basically, this game runs very similarly to the game show, Who Wants to Be a Millionaire. If you're not familiar with that show, this is how it works: Contestants try to win one million dollars by answering 15 questions in sucession, with a dollar value at each question. The dollar values multiply as follows:

    1. $100
    2. $200
    3. $300
    4. $500
    5. $1,000*
    6. $2,000
    7. $4,000
    8. $8,000
    9. $16,000
    10. $32,000*
    11. $64,000
    12. $125,000
    13. $250,000
    14. $500,000
    15. $1,000,000

    You'll notice that I places asterisks (*) by the $1,000 and $32,000 marks. These are checkpoints. If you miss a question before $1,000, you will automatically loose all of the money that you have gained, and be out of the game. If you miss a question after the $1,000 mark, instead of loosing, you will simply slide back to that mark. The same goes for $32,000.

    For example: Let's say John Doe has managed to get $8,000. However, he then misses the $16,000 question. Because he has passed one of the checkpoints (in this case, $1,000), he will simply slide back to that dollar amount.

    I'll post a question every so often on this thread. Send your answer to me via Private Message, which is accessable from your User CP, which you can click on at the top of this screen. DO NOT POST THE ANSWER HERE.

    Whoever has the most money accumulated at the end of 15 questions (or until we have one player left) wins.

    LIFELINES! MAKE SURE TO READ! Ok, as I said before, in celebration of Super Millionaire's release, I have devised two new lifelines for you to use. The first is similar to phone a friend (and please refer to it as this when using it). PM me and tell me you want to use this, and I'll give you a clue as to the answer, to you and to you only. The second is similar to 50/50 (and again, please refer to it as this when using it). I will cut out an answer from the question that you are stuck on for you and you only. Note that this can only be used on a question with multiple answers.

    And for all legal reasons, no actual prizes or money are awarded, though you will be crowned (in echo voice)REGIS POSTDOG'S CHAMPION OF POKEMON TRIVIA!!!!!

    At this point, I would also like to recognize Three-Time Master of Regis Postdog's Pokemon Trivia and Reigning Champion: Pidgeotto Trainer.

    Well, good luck, and here's the first question. I will accept answers until 9:00 CST on Saturday. Normally, I will not wait this long, but I want to give people time to sign up. If you ever have a problem on sending the answer in in the time given (family vacation, for instance), then simply PM me and I will arrange it (however, I hold the right to refuse this service to anyone).

    Please also rememeber that the questions will get gradually harder as the game progresses.

    Here's the question: How many Pokemon is it possible for you to have in play at once in a standard Pokemon Trading Card Game Battle?

    To clarify:

    By standard, I meant a reuglar, one-on-one match.

    Your Pokemon only (not counting your opponnet's).

    Here's the general lowdown:

    I'll post a trivia question here every few days. You simply send me a private message with the answer, and you move up the dollar ladder. Whoever gets to $1 million or is the only one left is the winner.

    Ok, well I have a fair number of replies, so here we go. Round 1 is closed, and I will no longer be accepting answers to this question. The following people have moved on to Round 2:

    Bullados
    Pidgeotto Trainer
    Pythagoras
    Psycho_Lugia_X
    professorbix
    |PoKeY|
    Eevee234

    You have all earned $100 (but, remember, you are not guaranteed this yet. You will lose it if you miss a question before $1,000).

    The answer was 6: 1 Active, up to 5 Benched.

    Ok, here's the question for Round 2. I will accept answers until 9:00 CST on Monday (4/12/04). This should give you ample time to send in yoru answer.

    What is the name of the Professor who gives you a Pokemon in the beginning of Pokemon Ruby or Sapphire?

    Side Note: I have had complaints in the past about an abundance of questions on electronic games. Although some questions in Pokemillionaire 4 will pertain to the video games, the questions will cover a very broad range of topics, and will not be based on the games.

Ok, sorry about this, and I'll try to avoid doing it again. Anyway, Round 2 is over, and I will no longer be accepting answers to this question. The following people have moved on to Round 3:

    WHEW! Just caught this before it became a month old. And believe me, I know that that isn't a good sign. Anyway, Round 5 was over just short of a month ago, and I will DEFINATELY not be accepting answers to this question. The following people have moved on to Round 6 and are guaranteed $1,000:

    |PoKeY|
    Pidgeotto Trainer
    bullados

    The answer was C, Pikachu. The Pika is a type of mouse.

    Ok, here's the question for Round 6. I will accept answers until 9:00 CST on June 13 (One week from now). If you don't see this thread in time, I will contact you, as you might not have been looking for it. And I'll again try to get better with this.

    In what year were the original Pokemon Red and Blue released in the US?

    September 1998 actually. Another nice job Postdog. (of course except for the 2-3 week delays ;) ) I'm sure they had strategic significance.
