Is the year 1999 attributed to all cards from Japan's Neo 1 Pokémon an oversight?

1 post in this topic

CGC has followed PSA and BGS to attribute the year 1999 to Japan's Neo 1 (Gold, Silver, to a New World...) set. On 10th December 1999 the Neo Premium File 1 was released in Japan, introducing the 9 cards which made up the generation 2 starter Pokémon evolution set (Chikorita through to Feraligatr), however the remainder of the set wasn't released until 4th February 2000 (this can be verified at https://www.pokemon-card.com/products/neo/).

I've attached a picture of a CGC-graded Pichu card from the set which I've cropped from an eBay listing. Pichu here was not part of Neo Premium File 1 and did not appear until the main set release in 2000.

Has 1999 been attributed to all cards from the set for ease of cataloguing or is this an oversight?
