Sorry if this isn't the right place to post this, but it is related to Sword and Shield in a way. I was looking around Bulbapedia, and this giveaway kept popping up like a pop up ad on my mobile device: Win a copy of Pokémon Sword and Shield!

The reason why I'm wondering if it's legitimate is because....well, there's no mention of this giveaway anywhere on Bulba... Literally, no mention of this on the news site, the forums, anywhere. Just this weird pop-up ad-like thing when I browse Bulba. So yeah, slightly suspicious of entering my email address into something I have no idea is legit. I would have assumed that a big giveaway like this would have been announced or something.

I'd assume bulbagarden chooses which ads to show on its website, so it's probably legit. And if it isn't, it looks like it's free to enter, so what's to lose?

It's like a big ad banner at the bottom of the wiki pages. Clicking on it leads to the link in my first post.

Edit: Well, went ahead and entered it. The site seems legit and the way it's worded makes it seem like it's Bulba sponsored. Still a bit baffled that they didn't have like an announcement for this... :confused:
