After navigating for about 20 seconds in the mobile site, I get redirected to a site called y631fx43cl.pw, with a popup message "We detected that your Samsung J7 Prime (my phone model) is 28,1% damaged because of 4 virus of adult sites, then, it will corrupt your SIM Card and delete all your files". You guys seriously need to revise your ads provider to avoid situations like that
It's not just a Bulbagarden problem. There's actually a lot of mobile redirects on a bunch of different sites that normally wouldn't be present on such sites. I'm convinced there's some adware that travels to different sites and can detect mobile connections.

Still, it would definitely help for Bulbagarden to investigate this.

Use this page to report bad ads directly when you find any:
ReportAd

The way that page works, it should be much easier for them to be dealt with than before.

Pretty sure this little bugger isn't supposed to be there if I'm logged in

Banner ad for dailybits magazine claims that email registration is the only requirement for entry into their switch lite giveaway. Once you've registered your email you're sprung with an additional referral requirement to be entered into the giveaway. This is a violation of US advertising laws.

I've raised your concerns with DailyBits, and they're correcting the wording on their giveaway to eliminate confusion. For the record, email registration (and verification, to prove you're not a spambot) is the only requirement for entry into their giveaway.
