Hi guys!

You can now send each other holiday mail again.

This year we have a pretty important QoL change: you now only need one available spot in your party to claim mail (where for previous years you needed to clear out your whole party which meant you couldn't claim mail while stuck in a trade, for instance).

If you don't know how it works, here's a detailed explanation:

Holiday Mail ✉


Sending Mail

There are two ways for you to send mail: one is to go to a user's profile page and click the Image Tiny Bauble icon. The other is to click the same icon in your icon shortcuts, click "send mail" and type in a user's username.

When sending mail, you can choose a wrapping color to send your mail in, input a message, and, optionally, attach a Pokémon that's in your party (tradelocked Pokémon and eggs can't be attached/sent). That Pokémon can be holding an item if you'd like, and the item will be sent with it.

Optionally, you can mark your mail to be sent anonymously - the recipient won't know who sent it! Do not use this as an excuse to send someone nasty/hate mail, though - I have means to find out who sent it, so you will be punished accordingly.

Also optionally you can mark your mail to not be readable until December 25th (or later). That means the recipient won't be able to tell what's inside (message and Pokémon, if there's one) until that day.

Once your recipient gets your mail, they will be notified of this via the in-game inbox (where trading & pal pad notifications are).

You can only send a user ONE holiday mail. If you sent them mail last year you can send them mail again, no problem at all.

Receiving Mail & Gifts

When you receive mail, you receive a notification in your in-game inbox. You can click the link there or the bauble icon in your shortcuts to be taken to the mail page. Click a present icon to read the message/claim the gift (if there's one).

If a present is grayed out, either the message's been read (if there wasn't a Pokémon inside) or the Pokémon inside has been claimed already.

To claim a Pokémon you need at least one open spot in your party.

You can opt to view mail sent by people you haven't sent mail to - anonymous mail won't be displayed since you can't know who the sender was. You can also opt to view only mail with Pokémon you haven't claimed yet.

Pokémon you receive will be bound to you. They'll be marked as fateful encounters and their logs will say they were given to you as a gift. You'll be marked as the OT. You will not receive dex data for it.

In the event the Pokémon sent to you was adopted instead of hatched or caught, its info page will still say it was adopted, even though it's marked as a fateful encounter.

Deadline

Sending mail will be deactivated on January 14th. You can still claim gifts and read mail after the deadline, however.
