    A number of entrants also guessed the Mt Fuji Surfing Pikachu card, based on this specific version of the card having not been released in English. However, that the card was released in English, just with different artwork, was clearly noted in the trivia of the Pokémon Trading Card Game (game) page. As a card identical in all aspects other than the art was released in English as a black star promo card, this was not judged to be a valid answer.
    Are you kidding me ? xD

    Did you check when was the Trivia edited ?

    After the end of the contest !

    The "prev" show the previous text :

    The second Surfing Pikachu, in game, that had rocks behind it, was released in Japan never to be released in English. The card is called the Mt. Fuji.
    Please, do not take people for idiots. Thanks :)

    Never the participants would have answered Pikachu without that confusing Trivia note.



    Congrats to the winners.

    >< i was one of the people who had bulbapedia and realised i had stuffed it up about half an hour after i submitted

    i dont think the mystery dungeon manga should have been counted as a right answer

    As a matter of fact....no, I hadn't. ^^;;
    I knew we were fixing up the errors noticed on some Bulbapedia pages after the contest was closed. I double-checked the articles as I was writing this one up, but I didn't believe those had gone in yet and hadn't checked the edits.
    I do note however that there was still a link to the Surfing Pikachu card there, which people would've had to read to try answering the question based off Pikachu anyway, so it should've been clear from that page that there was an English version.

    Yeah, I only noticed that there was an issue with the trivia section on that page after the contest closed. It also explains why such a large number of people responded with that card. The fact that the trivia section was below the navigation templates made it particularly difficult for editors to notice it.

    So I completely missed the first one, and forgot something crucial for 3 and 4. Oh well. Better luck mext time.

    Anyways, congrats to the winners! I'm sure they'll enjoy their free copies. They worked hard for those and deserve it.

    At least I got all of them right (well, I did said Pokemon Gold and Silver: The Golden Boys for the last one, but anyway).

    Congratulations to all the winners!
