    Check out this puzzle:

    http://www.go-pokemon.com/op/premie...ds/info/06-07/minisite/day1/game1/puzzle.html

    Okay, it's pretty easy, that's given. However, there is a problem in the answer.:eek:



    If you can't find the error, simply highlight the quote for a spoiler of the error:

    Hahaha, two errors:
    The Pidgeot is Pidgeotto and you already win when you KO Lugia ex so the Cursed Stone to pidgeot doesn`t matter =)!

    1 erorrs???


    i spot 4:

    1) pidgeot instead of pidgeotto

    2) mewtric player will take 3 prizes (2 for lugia ex and 1 for pidgeot)

    3) after latias's attack pidgeot cannot be at 90 damage (healing 10 off) if it was at 100 damage it was dead.
    if it was at 90, after latias attack it should be at 80

    pheraps one more mistake:

    4) a rocket's admin is in LBS discard's pile. if mewtric player has only 2 prizes left, how is possible for him to have 5 cards in hand after his turn's draw?

    How is it 3? Unless Clutch hits each bench for 10, it's going to be 2 prizes taken

    Also, what if opponent rearranged discard pile for Retriever, and Admin was just there

    cursed stone....

    the "answer" said cursed stone was needed to grab the last prize (1+1) but the correct number would be 3 prizes (even if 2 from lugia are enough and the game is over before pidgeot is hit by stone)

    Cursed Stone never got a chance to affect the Bird. Once you have taken your last prize card(s), game's over. In-between never happens

    We know that.

    The guy who made the puzzle apparently didn't.

    Also note that it is literally impossible for that situation to arise in the first place. The only way Regirock ex could have 80 damage on it after being attacked by Latias* is by a Strength Charm due to its Poke-Body (70 damage on Regirock, Strength Charm + Healing Light does 20, Poke-Body brings Regirock back down to 80 damage), and it couldn't have attacked because Pidgeot has 90 damage on it (Healing Light would bring it down to at least 80 damage).

    Furthermore, why is Regirock ex with one Energy active vs LBS? More importantly, why didn't the opponent simply use Clutch to win the game on the previous turn?

    They didn't think this one all the way through. :p

    Obviously, the player with Latias* didn't attack last turn.

    Don't ask why. :confused:



    :lol:



    Interesting puzzle.:rolleyes:

    Has no one realised that it says you have 4 cards in your hand even though it is plainly obvious that you have 6?
    What a great puzzle.

    Nice find everyone. I have shown what everyone has found to the PUI web team, and they will fix what needs to be fixed.

    "Our original solution used Cursed Stone to change Stadium cards. But the wise players solving the puzzle on the Web have noted that our solution adds unnecessary steps! Instead, you'll get two Prize cards for knocking out Lugia ex. So, the name "In Between Dreams" is kind of meaningless since you win on your own turn! Thanks to the players on the PokéGym for keeping us honest and making us better players!"

    lol

    Well, today's puzzle is rather easy and simplistic, didn't even have to think about it. No errors also as far as I can tell.
