So they were auctioning Groudon's nickname in the Pokéthon, and NCS showed up out of nowhere and donated $444... to let whoever came in second nickname it. Instant classic right there. Of course, the neverending auction for Rayquaza back in 2008 is something we'll remember forever, but... wow. If I had this much money I could throw away on being a philanthropist, it probably wouldn't occur to me to do it like that.
This comes on the heels of yesterday's mad auction featuring none other than Kevin Pereira, who donated over two grand for a handmade Marill figurine AND STILL LOST. At this rate, reaching the $50000 goal will be done in a flash.
