    Magmortar first appeared in fourth generation Pokemon games which were released in 2006.

    Frankly, I believe that you should have made the instructions more clear. The test has multiple questions where all of the answers are correct, simply not in the ’90s timeframe. You should have specified. I got numbers two and nine incorrect because I was given no option for “none of the above” and the questions did not specify clearly that we were only allowed to choose the answer that didn’t come from the 90s. In question two, all choices listed are Pokemon, but Magmortar was released in the second generation of Pokemon in the 21st century. In question nine, all are GameBoy models, but the DS was, again, the only one released in the 21st century. The questions did not ask to only include answers of 20th century choices, so in the future, please specify.
    Thank you,

    Although the indicated “correct” answer for the Gameboy question is false (the Nintendo DS was not released as part of the Gameboy line though it does boast backwards compatibility with Gameboy Advanced cartridges), there is actually a correct option for the Pokemon question as “Onyx” is an intentional misspelling of the Pokemon, Onix.
