| EUROPE TOP 10 POKEMON |
In early 2006, an online poll was conducted to determine what the
Europeans viewed as their 10 favorite Pokemon. This was similar
to the Top 20 that the US had.
The results indicated that the following 10 Pokemon had won the
poll and would be distributed throughout events in Europe.
Pikachu (Light Ball Attached)
Events took place in various European countries (France, Germany,
Italy, Netherlands, Spain and the United Kingdom)
The information on the Pokemon is very symbolic. The ID # on all
European distributions is 06227. This represents February 27 of
the year 2006, which was the actual date of the tenth anniversary

If you receive a Pikachu from these promotions, assuming you’ve
unlocked the ability for foreign Pokedex entries but have not yet
received a Pikachu from that country, the foreign entry must now
be available. If it is not, you have been traded a fake. The
exception is the Netherlands and the United Kingdom, which do not
unlock special Pokedex entries.
