Is it me or does the title sound more like an ad? *tc26* 02:16, 16 March 2009 (UTC)

Well, maybe a little bit. I have a different issue though: The information bit about the Mystery Gift might be fake. Daniel/Filb has expressed his doubts and he thinks the flyer scan got tampered with. If you take a look at the line about the Mystery Gift, you'll notice one of the 'a's being a little higher than the other letters and the other 'a's on the scan and it is also a little too far away from the n in "an"; also, the x in "exclusive" looks a little strange. The fact that QuickAttack has just registered before uploading the scan may or may not as well be a sign of it being a fake. Perhaps most importantly, though, the newsletter about this event (I have it in my e-mail inbox too) sent out by NOA doesn't mention this Mystery Gift at all. We removed the mentioning of the gift in the news article and I'll remove it from this article now too, but I wanted to leave this explanation here. If it does turn out to be real, the sentence about the Mystery Gift could be restored again and most likely a new news article about what exactly the Mystery Gift is would be made anyway. --nYoo 19:51, 21 March 2009 (UTC)

On the Pokesav Database it said that The Mystery Gift part of the ad was fake.-Kevin19980609

That was AFTER I made these edits to remove the fake information. Also, fenzo blames "bulbapedia" ("The third line regarding the Mystery Gift was intentionally photoshopped by a member of their site in an effort to create his/her own event."), even though he should realize that anyone can go and post fakes here. And it was him who was constantly looking out for new drafts so that he could use the info for his site and thereafter post an article here based on the draft in order to link to his site - at least that's how it looks to me. --nYoo 21:40, 21 March 2009 (UTC)

Especially because he is a contributor to this site, I am disappointed in fenzo's willingness to recklessly accuse this site (implying staff involvement) of unsavory behavior. --Argy 07:22, 22 March 2009 (UTC)
