Pokemon Ultra Sun/Moon Review + New Pokemon Strategy

Hi everyone! Seth and Oliver here with a look at Pokemon Ultra Sun and Ultra Moon! Spoilers ahead In Pokemon ultra sun and ultra moon the game is now largely focusing on Necrozma and the ultra beasts and three new ultra beasts, known by their codenames UB-Assembly, UB-Adhesive, and UB-Burst, and their real names (datamined), Stakataka (Assembly), Poipole (UB-Adhesive), and Blacephalon (UB-Burst). Poipole actually can evolve into Nagandel, the first Ultra Beast to do so. Stakataka AKA UB-Assembly Stakataka is a Rock/Steel type Pokemon. In one word: Defense. It has a base 210 Defense stat. However, it has a bad defensive ability in Beast Boost. Beast Boost raises your highest stat (Defense) by one stage when you knock out an opposing Pokemon. However, it’s a wall. It will stall with Toxic which doesn’t trigger this. Also, it has a 4x weakness to not one but two common physical attacking types…

Path of Puzzles 1

Hello everybody! Seth here with a new series that I’m really excited about! Each week in the series there will be some puzzles. Now, this sounds like Rage Inducing Puzzles, and you can play it like that, but in the answer section of each puzzle there will be a new puzzle you can go to next (like a world map in a video game or something.) Sometimes you will be directed to a puzzle that isn’t published yet. It will eventually be published, so please be patient for the next issue! (You won’t be directed to a puzzle number that will be published in 2 issues.) Without further ado, the first 10 puzzles. Start with Puzzle 1. 1. Red = 3, Orange = 6, Green = ??? 2. If you roll a die, how many spots are on it? 3. What is 100 x 98 x 96 x 94… x…

Order the Numbers 2

Hi everyone! Seth here with three more Order the Numbers puzzles. First, though, last week’s answers! (X can be any number within the range of the puzzle.) Easy: The only even numbers from 1-5 are 2 and 4, so it either has to be 2XXX4 or 4XXX2. The third clue says that three is second in line. So the four possible combinations are 23154, 23514, 43152, and 43512. The second clue says that three can’t be to the right of two, so that narrows down the options to 43152 and 43512. If one is to the left of five, the only possible order is 43152. Medium: Start with clue 3. The possible formations are (from the top, going clockwise) 2XX3XX or 3XX2XX. Continue with clue 5. If one is directly counterclockwise of 2, that changes our possible combinations to 2XX3X1 or 3X12XX. If 5 is across from 6, that changes…

Order the Numbers 1

Hello everyone! Seth here, with a new kind of puzzle- Order the Numbers! You must place numbers into a specific order so they follow specific rules, that differ by puzzle. Answers will be revealed in a subsequent issue. There will be 3 puzzles per issue- one Easy, one Medium, and one Hard. Easy is a nice warm-up, Medium is fairly challenging, and if you complete the Hard puzzle, you have exceptional logic skills. The answers will be revealed in the next issue. The Puzzles: Easy: Place the numbers 1-5 in a line so… Even numbers start and end the line. No number is to the right of the number one less than it. (i.e. 2 is not to the right of 1.) Three is second in line. One is to the left of five. Medium: Place the numbers 1-6 in the diagram below so… The triangle with the 4 in it…

Word Suggester Story Chapter 1: Chest Keys

Hi, Seth here, publishing the hilarious results of an experiment that I did. I just clicked the middle button of the word-suggester on the iPad keyboard a bunch of times and got this. This is going to be the 1st chapter of a story that I will continue (either by actual writing or by hitting the word-suggester again, please comment with your suggestion!) Chapter 1: Chest Keys The first person to pick out her and she had to be on one side compartment is not very important for a small pox and a screwdriver that she was passed out from her head of state to help them out of a physical location for her kids to escape her life she was started by on her own chest keys to her chest and she had to put a hole on it and then she was passed on a woman to a…

Two Math Proofs That Will Blow Your Mind

Hi everybody! Seth here with another cool math article. I discovered these proofs recently, and thought that they were really cool! So, sit back and enjoy! So, here are two math proofs that are essentially proving the same thing. The first one proves 1=0, and the second one proves 4=5. Neither one of them is accurate, but they are seemingly possible. 1=0 Step 1. Set a variable a equal to a variable b. We have a=b. Step 2. Multiply both sides by a. We have a^2=ab. Step 3. Subtract b^2 from both sides. We have a^2-b^2=ab-b^2. Step 4. Factor both sides, using the difference of squares on the left. We have (a+b)(a-b)=b(a-b) Step 5. Divide both sides by (a-b). We have a+b=b. Step 6. Subtract b from both sides. We have a=0. Step 7. Divide both sides by a. We have 1=0. 4=5 Step 1. We know 2+2=4. Step 2….

How to Square Anything

First, a disclaimer. This method is meant to be a trick to show off to people and make you seem really smart. This will not save you time on a test over multiplying the number by itself, especially with numbers that are three digits or more. You also need to be fairly good at multiplication. (A number and then ^2 is that number squared; 8^2 is 8 squared.) To use this method, you need to know the squares of the numbers 1 through 9, and the square of higher numbers may be helpful as well. (The square of a number is the number multiplied by itself) We’ll start with two-digit numbers. I’ll split all two-digit numbers into several categories. Numbers that end in 0. Square the first digit and stick 00 on the end. Example: 80^2. 8^2=64. 80^2= 6,400. Numbers in between 11 and 29 (inclusive). Knock the units digit off…

Rage Inducing Puzzles #4

Welcome to Rage Inducing Puzzles #4! As previously mentioned, there are a whole ton of points up for grabs. And the answers to last week’s puzzles are… 000000. Since there are 1000, 100, and 10, you must add six zeros to the end. 12 pts Separate the weights into three groups of 9 each. Weigh two against each other. If one of them is heavier, then that is the group that the second weighing will be done to. If neither is, then the third group is. Split the mentioned group into 3 groups of 3 and repeat. For the final weighing, weigh the 3 weights individually. 18 pts Put one chip from the first group, two chips from the second group, etc. up to all ten from the last group, all at once. Subtract 225 grams from the result to find the number of the heavier group. 15 pts Telephone….
