Presenter: Hello contestants, minus Mime Jr. Welcome to what is effectively the semi-final stage of PokéMole 5 and weâ€™re going to dive straight into another challenge. Itâ€™s called Charity Begins At Sinnoh and I hope youâ€™ve got your begging bowls ready. Todayâ€™s challenge is worth money all round â€“ 25,000 for your prize fund, IF you can earn 1,000 cash in hand for the local charity, Admins In Need. To do this you simply have to go and throw yourselves on the mercy of the locals, garnering as much money as you can. To get us in the mood, weâ€™re going to supply some dress wear for you â€“ okay, maybe we just want to see you dressed in rags, but hey, it might get you some sympathy. You have three hours to go and beg before returning here, at which point weâ€™ll count up the money. Good? Yes? So letâ€™s get started.
Aipom: Excuse me lady, we want your money.
Pikachu: Aipom, youâ€™ve got to be politer than that. Excuse me madam, we want your money.
Snover: Give us your money!
Toxicroak: Give us your money!
Snover: The more you give.
Toxicroak: The more you get.
Snover: Thatâ€™s being alive!
Toxicroak: All weâ€™re asking you -
Snover: - Is to -
Toxicroak: - do what -
Snover: - Jesus Christ would do.
Toxicroak: Heâ€™d give us his money!
Snover: Why donâ€™t you?
Presenter: Okay contestants, time for a quick tally. Both teams did similarly, earning around the 450 mark each. Thatâ€™s 900 in total, but Iâ€™ll tell you what, because itâ€™s for a good cause weâ€™ll round that up to the 1,000 and say youâ€™ve passed the challenge. I'm sure the Admins will be able to make good use of it to decorate their thirty-feet high christmas tree. That brings your prize fund up to 149,000, a fantastic amount Iâ€™m sure youâ€™ll agree. Your next challenge will take place tomorrow morning in the Pokémon Center lobby. Iâ€™ll see you there and all that.
Pikachu: Great. Now I know how Oliver Twist felt. We walked past some really strange guy though. He was running after this poor Ledyba waving a net around, trying to catch it. Named after a dinosaur he was. Strange fellow.
Snover: I was pleased to get to work with Toxicroak today. Didnâ€™t expect him to do anything suspicious, not for one second, but the time we spent talking will prove useful if heâ€™s the PokéMole.
Toxicroak: I would be absolutely astonished if the PokéMole had done any sabotage today.
Presenter: Good morning contestants, and welcome to the annual review challenge, fittingly called PokéMole 5. In a minute Iâ€™ll ask you one question each about something that has happened during your time with us. Answer 3 out of the 4 questions correctly and youâ€™ll earn another 25,000 for the prize fund. Iâ€™ll be asking in the order youâ€™re sat in front of me from left to right, so Toxicroak weâ€™ll start with you: In the challenge Deception, what food did Mime Jr mention to Aipom?
Toxicroak: Apples, although it should have been grapes. You know. The sour link.
Aipom: Says Mr Toxigrump.
Presenter: Apples is correct. Snover, youâ€™re next. How many Gastly were in the room in the challenge The Unreal Ghostbusters?
Presenter: Iâ€™m dreadfully sorry, it was 184.
Snover: Oh come on, close enough.
Presenter: Iâ€™m afraid not. Pikachu, which crate contained the paint bomb in the challenge Fluke?
Pikachu: I donâ€™t knowâ€¦ 12?
Presenter: Iâ€™m sorry, the answer was 9. Well, this challenge has been lost, but Aipom Iâ€™ll ask you your question anyway. How much money was earned in Episode 5?
Aipom: Oh, that was the Iron Island episodeâ€¦ 15,000 and 20,000 makes 35,000.
Presenter: You did know it then, but as I said, the challenge has already been lost. Thatâ€™s it for today, the prize fund still at 149,000. Iâ€™m actually going to bother asking you to meet me here at the same time tomorrow. See you then.
Pikachu: Iâ€™m going to go to Toxicroak now. Trust my instinct and see where it takes me.
Snover: Aipom positioned last and not for the first time. I wonder if he would have given the same answer if the challenge hadnâ€™t already been over? Itâ€™s definitely between him and Toxicroak for the PokéMole.
Toxicroak: I canâ€™t say that Pikachu didnâ€™t do much today. He managed to mess up the challenge quite well. I mean, crate 12? Werenâ€™t there only 10?
Presenter: Good morning contestants. Welcome to the mickey-take-last-challenge-before-the-final which is called Easy Peasey Lemon Squeezy. For 10,000, I need you, as a group, to answer one of the following two questions: In what town does Professor Oak live, or the second question, what does â€œdy/dx (5i + 3x + 5x^2 - x^3)^2 + 7x^2 + 3x +3i â€“ 12â€ simplify to?
Pikachu: Oh wow. A Level Maths suddenly appears useful.
Toxicroak: Pallet Town. For the first question.
Presenter: Correct! The prize fund going into the final will be 159,000. Well, Iâ€™m going back to bed, you lot might be better preparing for tonightâ€™s quiz. Iâ€™ll see you there.
