    • “What is Pokemon?” was the question.

      The answer was, under WORKS LIKE A CHARM $600: In the “Sun and Moon” edition of this 20-year-old game from Japan, the Shiny Charm helps to catch the title critters

  4. What was the question and answer about the Sioux Indian? I believe the category was Bone Voyage.
