1 Year Anniversary Contest

by Pikkdogs ~ December 23rd, 2010.

Well, its been an entire year.  December 20th 2010 marked the one year anniversary of  The site has came a long way in a year.  It has grown from a site that organizes information for a small amount of people, to being a global website that is known for its Pokemon knowledge.  Ed and I are really excited to see the website grow into what it is today.  So a big happy birthday celebration goes out to all of our readers and all of our freinds who have came and written articles.  I don’t wanna leave anyone out, but I’ll try to give a good shoutout to those who have given us articles: Thanks to Bittyboy, Andrew, Andy, Ava, Pokemon Dan, Omar, and Jona. 

To celebrate our 1st birthday we are giving back to you guys, the readers that have chosen us one of your favorite sites.   We are instituting a contest, winners of this contest will win one of four prizes.  The contest is a bit of a treasure hunt, but we will get back to that later.

We originally had the contest idea last summer, we were just days away from starting the contest, but because of circumstances beyond our control we were forced to scrap it.  Well, now about 6 months later we are bring it back for another go.

The contest goes like this.  Below, we have 14 questions for you that deal with information from the TCG, the video game, and this website.  There are also two questions that deal with some of your personal information, this is just done to prevent cheating.  This contest does require that you include your POP ID and Age.  We are using this information only to make sure that each person has an unique/individualized answer, and we will not do anything else with it.  So as for the contest, find the answer to each question and do what the step has asked you to do with it.  For example, if the question asks you to add the HP of Uxie La to the number of Magikarp that Ed ran in his 2010 Cities deck, the answer would be 74.  Then you would carry that number onto the next step and keep on going till the end.  Here are the Questions:

1.  Start with your pop ID
2.  add the number of damage counters Gengar SF’s “Shadown Room” attack would do to Bastiodon Pt
3.  Subtract the number of wins that Cheffords had in the 2010 Pokemon U.S. Nationals
4.  multiply this by the number of Pokemon Violet City Gym Leader Falkner had has in Pokemon Heart Gold
5.  subtract the amount of damage Kabutop’s MD’s “Chop Up” attack does to Benched Pokemon if he has an expert belt attached.
6.  add the number of Slowking Primes that Pikkdogs used in his Slowpluff deck.
7.  add your age
8.  subtract the level of Celadon City Gym Leader Erika’s Vileplume in Pokemon Blue
9.  add the number of HP that Exploud SV has
10.  add the number of Volbeat and Illumise that Pokemon Dan ran in his Triumphant Pre-Release deck.
11.  subtract the number of coins that a porygon costs in the Celadon City Game Corner in Pokemon Crystal
12.  add the number of coins that you flip for Jirachi Ul’s “Star Dust Song” Poke-Power.
13.  add the number of separate pictures that Ava drew in her “artwork” article
14.  subtract the level in which  Machoke learns the attack “Seismic Toss” in the Pokemon Blue, Red, and Yellow versions.

birthday cakeThis contest is open from now until December 31st, 2010.  If it’s 2011, you’re too late. All you have to do is complete the contest, and send your age, POP ID #, and the answer to the contest question to with “ Anniversary Contest” as the subject.  If you do not have a POP ID # (or are very paranoid and don’t want us to know yours) then send us an email with “ID Number Request-Team Anniversary Contest ” as the subject and we will send you a number that you can use in its place.  Though we will try to respond promptly, we can’t guarantee that we will get back to you immediately over these holidays (especially if you ask at the last minute).

If you are chosen as a winner, we will contact you via email about how we can send you your prize. Entries must be received by midnight on December 31st. Unfortunately we are not able to accept any entries from outside of the contiguous 48 states, because of concerns with shipping. So we apologize to all of our foreign fans, we do love you guys, but it just isn’t possible.  And, of course we can only accept one correct entry from one person.

We will randomly select 4 correct entries and those will receive a prize.  We have four prizes available:

  1. One Pokemon TCG Tin
  2. 2 Packs of HGSS Triumphant
  3. One pack of 2010 Play Pokemon Holo Energies
  4. Both the Top and Bottom half of Ho-Oh Legend HGSS.

Winners will be able to pick their choice from the available prizes. We will contact the first winner, and they will select a prize. Then we will contact the 2nd place, and they will select from the remaining prizes and so on.

We will reserve the right to change the prizes or make substitutions at any time (but we don’t see this as likely). We also reserve the right to disqualify any participant (or even cancel the contest) if we feel that it’s necessary. I only say this so we’re covered just in case someone posts all the answers or something like that.

So that’s it for the rules, now all you have to do is figure out the answer and submit it (your POP ID and age) to before midnight on the 31st of December.

Good luck.
