Presenter: Good morning contestants, minus Kricketune. Iâ€™m sure youâ€™ve been itching for another one, so here it is, time for your third battle, which today will take place outside, here at the Water Path. You will be battling a Tentacruel, and if three of you can successfully defeat the Tentacruel then weâ€™ll add 25,000 to the prize fund. Exciting stuff it be. This time you shall be battling in reverse alphabetical order. Usual rules apply so Raticate, itâ€™s over to you. Good luck.
Next up is Mothim. Tentacruel this time starts off the battle, again with a Poison Jab attack, but Mothim is quick to dodge and responds with a Psychic attack. Tentacruel is severely hurt but manages to respond with another Hydro Pump. This hits Mothim and appears to be a Critical Hit, dealing a huge amount of damage, but another quick Psychic attack is enough to knock out Tentacruel. 1-1 toâ€¦ well, both of them technically.
Next up is Mawile. Tentacruel again starts off the battle, this time with Muddy Water. The water surrounds Mawile who while emerging relatively unscathed, clearly has more than a little visibility problem. As if to try and equalise that statistic Mawile responds by using Mud Slap, but unsurprisingly misses the target. Tentacruel uses Hydro Pump which also misses, leaving Mawile free to respond with a Thunder Fang attack which deals a lot of damage to Tentacruel. However, a last ditch Hydro Pump from Tentacruel this time hits Mawile and knocks him out. 2-1 to Tentacruel. Oo-er.
Next up is Farfetchâ€™d, who has to win in order for the contestants to have any chance of passing the challenge. Again, Tentacruel attempts to start the battle with a Muddy Water attack, but Farfetchâ€™d, possibly expecting this tactic, flies out of the way of the wave of water and responds with his own Mud Slap attack, which appears to be a Critical Hit and completes the dual job of damaging Tentacruel as well as severely damage its eyesight. Tentacruel attempts an Aurora Beam attack but misses Farfetchâ€™d completely, who this time is free to launch an Air Slash at Tentacruel. Tentacruel flinches and another Air Slash from Farfetchâ€™d is enough to knock out Tentacruel. 2-2 and itâ€™s all down to the last battle.
Last up is Clefairy, and again itâ€™s a must win battle for the contestants in order to pass the challenge. Clefairy starts the battle off with Thunderbolt which hits Tentacruel directly and causes a lot of damage. Tentacruel weakly uses Poison Jab which also scores a direct hit and manages to poison Clefairy. Clefairy, still unfazed, uses Metronome and subsequentlyâ€¦ falls asleep, Resting. Tentacruel surrounds Clefairy in Muddy Water and just as Clefairy wakes up, Tentacruel launches an Aurora Beam at Clefairy, knocking her out. 2-3 to Tentacruel and itâ€™s a failed challenge ;;
Presenter: Well contestants, Iâ€™m sorry to have to tell you that three of you LOST to Tentacruel, rather than the three victories which we were looking for, meaning this challenge has been lost and your prize fund remains at 124,000. Thatâ€™s three challenges in a row youâ€™ve failed now, and 60,000 which youâ€™ve failed to add to the prize fund in those three challenges alone. It seems the PokéMole is starting to get a grip on all of you and unless you are not careful, you might well end up going on a huge losing run. Have a think about that, and Iâ€™ll see you again bright and early tomorrow morning at the Pattern Bush.
Farfetch'd: Was Clefairy a Clefairy deliberately so that she could go last in this challenge and deliberately muck it up for us? She looked to have Tentacruel beaten.
Mawile: My two major suspects were the two contestants which actually won their battles today. While thatâ€™s a bit of a setback, Iâ€™m sticking with them.
Mothim: What if we DO go on a big losing run? I guess the current prize fund isnâ€™t too bad, although it saddens me we probably wonâ€™t be able to add much to it.
Raticate: Mothim was very clinical in his battle today. I think the PokéMole would do that occasionally as a cover, so I still think itâ€™s Mothim. Clefairy did lose her battle very easily after being in such a strong position though, and it was that which ultimately cost us the challenge.
Presenter: Good morning contestants, itâ€™s time for your early morning exercise in a challenge that is called Putting Your Footy In it. Itâ€™s of course shockingly obvious what you need to do â€“ weâ€™re going to play a simple ten minute a-half game of five-a-side football, that is you five against a special team of five opponents. Beating your opponents will earn you 15,000 for the prize fund, and should the scores be level after those twenty minutes, it will be settled via a penalty shootout. The formation you wish to choose is up to you, and the roles you wish to choose likewise, but you will now have five minutes in which to discuss your tactics.
Presenter: And now itâ€™s time to welcome your opponents! Here come Staryu, Girafarig, Jumpluff, Hitmonlee and Snover â€“ aka, Molechester United! Contestants, take your positions, itâ€™s time to kick off!
The contestants come out for the second half and within a minute Clefairy gives away a free kick on the wing. All the contestants scramble into the penalty area as Hitmonlee lines the ball up and curls it into a packed area. The ball takes a nick off a player and flies into the net to make it 2-1 to Molechester United and ninety seconds later it gets worse still as Snover curls a delicious shot past Tomasz â€œMothimâ€ Kuszczak to make it 3-1 to Molechester United. Being incredibly stupid, Molechester United choose to sit back and defend allowing the contestants to pour forward and Clefairy sees a shot (well, it hit her and bounced goalwards anyway) saved by Staryu (well, it hit it). There are just two minutes on the clock when Mawile once again charges forward and crosses for Clefairy to once again get hit by the ball, this time seeing it trickle into the net, making it 3-2. Molechester United are stunned, and it gets worse as Farfetchâ€™d smacks a beautiful goal into the top corner, to the astonishment of everyone â€“ especially Mothim. The board goes up and shows four minutes of Fergie time to be played (presumably the match is being played at Old Trafford) and with just seconds remaining Raticate curls a beautiful ball into the area to see Mawile power a header past Staryu! The final whistle goes and the contestants have won 4-3! Isnâ€™t it funny when teams score extra time goals to win games 4-3 in suspicious amounts of added on time?
Presenter: Well contestants, a very topsy-turvy game indeed, but you have prevailed! Your prize fund has now increased to 139,000 and perhaps more importantly, your mini-losing streak has officially come to an end! Some time off for you now really, since your next challenge will take place tomorrow night at Ruin Valley. Iâ€™ll see you there.
Raticate: Can you not just calm down for a minute? Anyway, it's only twenty past. Put some music on. I fancy some Black-Eyed Peas. You should listen out for them if you havenâ€™t already.
Clefairy: Silly Raticateâ€¦ peas canâ€™t make music ^_^
Mawile: Why on earth did we agree to play Clefairy up front?
Clefairy: Because I scored a goal YAY ^_^ Maybe I should make a career out of it. I canâ€™t be any worse than Diglett Kuyt ^_^
Raticate: Because the key in football is defence first. You build from the back, you defend from the front. And frankly youâ€™re a liability, so sticking you up front was the safest option overall.
Clefairy: Erm okay ^_^ Thanks ^_^
Raticate: You really donâ€™t understand English do you?
Clefairy: LOL silly Raticate, course I do ^_^
Mothim: I think I injured my wing today you knowâ€¦
Raticate: Injured your wing? You didnâ€™t do anythingâ€¦
Farfetch'd: Oh look, thereâ€™s a match report hereâ€¦ I bet itâ€™s here so we can read it and focus on our mistakesâ€¦ itâ€™s a conspiracy to wind us up.
Mothim: It does actually hurtâ€¦ and pain just depresses me.
Farfetch'd: Hang onâ€¦ it says that Molechester Unitedâ€™s second goal was an own goalâ€¦
Raticate: What? You mean after all of my careful defensive organisation someone managed to go and score for them anyway? Who?
Farfetch'd: Itâ€¦ doesnâ€™t actually say. Just lists it as an own goal.
Raticate: Well isnâ€™t that just brilliant. Who wrote the match report?
Farfetch'd: Setanta Sports.
Raticate: Says it all then.
Mothim: I bet itâ€™s because I caught it on that door that timeâ€¦
Farfetch'd: Clearly itâ€™s the producers who want us to lose. Being there with what would be six PokéMoles was clearly an attempt to intimidate us. Clefairy was the worst player on the pitch by far, even scoring a damn own goal.
Mawile: Iâ€™m sure it was Mothim who inadvertently scored that own goal, which was surely a clear case of blatant sabotage? I mean, how can you do something as incredibly stupid as scoring an own goal by accident? Youâ€™d have to be really poor at football to do it. I mean look at the amount of own goals Jamie Carragher scores. Point made.
Mothim: We won but we were very lucky, so the losing streak is still weighing us down. Farfetchâ€™d must now go down as a major suspect â€“ an own goal was probably the worst thing you could do today, and he really put our already slim chances in jeopardy.
Raticate: Oh what a game. That headerâ€¦ incredible scenes! My tactics were of course spot on, as proved by the victory. Some suspicions have to rest on Mawile now though following his own goal.
Presenter: Good morning contestants, and welcome to tonightâ€™s challenge. Creepy isnâ€™t it? Fortune Island is famous around these parts for the clear views you get of the night sky, hence tonightâ€™s challenge is called Written In The Stars. Weâ€™re going to do a nice gentle spot of stargazing â€“ but youâ€™re going to need to be vigilant and very precise about it. Because the views you get from these parts is so clear, you can actually see every single star. Tonight, three constellations are visible â€“ Orhydon, The Skorupi and Mikeus. Very pretty but very complex star patterns and what we want you to do is simply count how many stars there in those three constellations. I have diagrams here for you to use to help you, since some stars are out tonight which are not officially recognised as part of those constellations, and if you can tell me the precise number of stars between all three constellations, to within five, weâ€™ll add 15,000 into the prize fund. You have ten minutes to complete this challenge â€“ here are the diagrams to help you, good luck.
Presenter: Okay contestants, have you reached a decision.
Farfetch'd: Yes we haveâ€¦ although I want to know who was watching us from the shadows.
Presenter: Nobody wasâ€¦ why?
Farfetch'd: I heard noises.
Mothim: Maybe weâ€™ll all get eaten by hungry Rhydon.
Raticate: Thereâ€™s no wild Rhydon here, idiot.
Farfetch'd: Well you never know do youâ€¦
Clefairy: I knew a Rhydon once ^_^
Presenter: Can I just have your answer pleaseâ€¦
Clefairy: I thought weâ€™d agreed on 186â€¦ ^_^
Raticate: YOU said 186. The rest of us can count.
Clefairy: Oh ^_^
Presenter: I have to take your first answer of 62â€¦ which congratulations, is absolutely correct! That means the prize fund now rises to 154,000! Now I think we can take a gentle moonlit walk back to the Pokémon Center, but Iâ€™m afraid what awaits you there is not quite so pleasant. The time has come for the next quiz and the next elimination. Please follow me.
