Even Mew loves Christmas!​

The holidays are here! That means it's time for the annual (or is it biannual?) Christmas Giveaway! For this year, I'm basing it on the carol, "The Twelve Days of Christmas." Twelve days, twelve different Pokemon, and giving away a total of 78 Pokemon! Do note, the number will be decreasing as the days go by, but on the plus side...while you're limited to one Poke a day, you can come back another day to get a new one! In addition, I will reveal some of the Pokemon as the days go, so you can anticipate what you'd like to go for!

Of course, we got Santa Chu to establish some rules!


Santa Chu's Rules:
1. In order to participate, you must post here first. You may post once a day, indicating the current day's Pokemon. Post a :heart: in your post here to show you read the rules.
2. All answers must be submitted via pm. One guess per person.
3. I will be distributing these Pokemon. Winners may vm/pm me to pick up the Pokemon. However, after December 24th, if you have not picked up your Pokemon, you will not be able to claim the Pokemon.
4. Pokemon come from my Diamond, Heart Gold and White versions. [OT: ?] means register Diamond; [OT: ?] means register Heart Gold; [OT: ?] means register White. In addition, you may request nicknames. I will not Pokeshift any Pokemon.<-(Note: 4th Gen Pokes in a 4th Gen game currently unavailable; they will be Pokeshifted, so you can ignore the last part.)
5. ICBB/Blacklisted members may not participate.
6. All Pokemon are non-redistributable.
7. Breaking any of these rules may exclude you from any future giveaways.

The post below will denote the day's Pokemon, question, and winners. Here, you can keep track of the Pokemon being given away!

(Note: Rebattle Code used. Semi-Resitribution rights granted to Twelve Days of Christmas Winner)​

"And a Zekrom in a Pear Tree!!!!" Well, it flows well at least! You're looking at a Zekrom caught in Dragonspiral Tower, caught today, December 24th, caught in a Premier Ball (ying-yang!), and is, at this moment, unlisted in my trade thread. And to sweeten the deal on this baby, the winner of this Zekrom is granted semi-redistribution rights (so long as they keep the format). However, there is only one winner here!

There are some differing circumstances regarding the entry for this Poke. Do NOT post the smiley post confirming your entry here. Instead, put the smiley in the subject line of your pm to me. In addition, the time end time has been extended from 9:59p PST to 11:59p PST.

Today's Question:
Todays question is more of a riddle/poetry piece:

Nationality extends.
I am American-born.
But there lies another home,
A home to the south,
Donde hablamos español.

Iglesia cristiana,
Somos devotos en nuestra fe.
The government may try to bribe
Naive, foolish farmers with free
Livestock, but the young will learn.

Center of the Central,
Tiramos puta
Like there is no tomorrow
As we pass you on dirt roads,
Concrete destroyed by quakes.

Agua pura, clara, a dos lados.
Destino húmedo, pero con gran cultura de
Nativos. Plains, forests, mountains, lakes,
Nature's wonder, government's trample.
Mi hermoso ______

End Time: 11:59p PST (or if all Pokemon are claimed)

Question: Name all the Horcruxes of Lord Voldemort.
Answer: People also liek Shiny Shinx. Lord Voldemort's Horcruxes were Tom Riddle's Diary, Marvolo Gaunt's Ring (which housed the Resurrection Stone!), Salazar Slytherin's Locket, Helga Hufflepuff's Cup, Rowena Ravenclaw's Diadem, Harry Potter himself, and Nagini the snake. Some say Professor Quirrell was also one, but personally, I find that debatable, and thus, was not necessary.

Question: Give me the Zelda timeline and the extenuating circumstances behind it.
Answer: Nintendo has copped out the timeline. Some were mind f'ed about the findings. Skyward Sword, Minish Cap, Four Swords, Ocarina of Time. Good so far? Well, here come the extenuating circumstances. There's a THREE way split at Ocarina of Time! If Link fails to defeat Ganon in OoT, then we have Link to the Past, Oracle of Ages/Seasons, Link's Awakening, The Legend of Zelda, and Zelda 2. If Link defeats Ganon but is then sent to the past, we get Majora's Mask, Twilight Princess, and Four Swords Adventure. And finally, if Link defeats Ganondorf and stays as an adult, then it's Wind Waker, Phantom Hourglass, and Spirit Tracks. Theories be damned...

Mi hermoso ______

Fill in the blank.

Answer: Unfortunate that a few people didn't read the entry for today's Pokemon properly. Some people had the correct answer but lacked a crucial part in their entry. The Jedi is American-born indeed, but his other home is...Nicaragua. The opening line suggests that I while I was born in the United States, my family roots extend elsewhere. "South" suggest a country south of the border, while "Center of the Central" refers to...Central America. The other descriptions might help, but pay attention to "Center." If we're looking at Central America, the way it is composed, one can pin point the country that is centered in Central America. Hence, Nicaragua.
