    Secret Santa Event 2019!

    Thank you to Pokemon Trainer Sarah for the spectacular banner!

    Spread the Joy this Season!
    Hosts: Chakramaster

    Spread the joy cause it's here once again!

    Hello everyone and welcome once again to PXR's Secret Santa Event 2019!


    This event is a gift exchange (be sure to keep who you get as a secret)! Sign ups begin now and will close on December 4th. After signing up, you will be given another member’s username who signed up as well (on the 5th of December). This person is who you will be sending a gift to. Since you signed up, that means you will be receiving a gift from another Secret Santa! It's a surprise every year just who you may get! Be sure to watch what everyone else lists for ideas. The gifts will be delivered the day of or after Christmas, depending on the event manager's schedules.


    Note: Everyone's gift will be posted at the end of the event for everyone on the forum (and beyond) to view.
    If you are not comfortable with a public display of your work, please let either myself, Chakramaster know when submitting your gift (or any time after that).

    People who have been crossed off are the entrants who have submitted their gift for their recipient!
    People in red have had to pull out (but told me on time--thank you!).



    ! Be sure to read over your recipient’s sign up post when planning your gift. It’s a good way to get ideas for what they might love to see from you! Click their username in the List of Participants for quick access.


    Signing Up
    There are 2 categories (plus a special one). Like last year, you may participate in both if you wish. This means you can send one or both of the following, depending on what you're interested in:

    Wifi Secret Santa!
    If you would like to send a gift through Wifi, sign up for this category! You will send and received a gift through Wifi. Please note that to participate, you MUST have access to Wifi/Internet, a 3DS, and a copy of your 7th generation game*. You have to be able to connect to Wifi and trade your gift. This category may take a little longer for everyone to get your gift, so please be patient. Your gift must be submitted by December 21st. You are not required to send out a perfect IV/EV or even a shiny. You can even send more than one Pokémon if you want!

    *This portion does NOT include the latest Pokemon Sword and Pokemon Shield as these games are still brand new and not everyone may have access to these just yet. This section is up to Ultra Sun and Ultra Moon ONLY!.*

    Do you promise to send a gift by December 21st?


    Non-Wifi Secret Santa!
    If you’d like to sign up to the regular Secret Santa, sign up here! This will be a NON-Wifi gift. That means almost anything you can think of goes! As long as you have a gift idea that can be sent to your recipient feel free to jump on it! If you aren't sure, please contact me and you can ask if it can be a viable gift for this category.

    You’re free to send any kind of gift here, but if you’re still thinking and trying to figure out “Oooh what really can be accepted in this category?” FEAR NOT! Here’s a few suggestions:

    -> Artwork; a drawing, banner, sprite, desktop wallpaper, photograph etc.
    -> Writing; a short story or poem etc.
    -> Video; a short video, voice clip etc.
    -> Anything else you can think of!

    Have Pokemon Sword or Shield? Want to take part in a gift exchange on that early? Well here's a category EXCLUSIVELY for those with that!

    Pokemon Sword/Shield Wi-Fi (Exclusive!)

    This is a limited time category. Only set to run this year as next year will transition into the official Wi-Fi category. Some may want to take part in the new Pokemon gen for this event as well. Well here's you chance! You can sign up here for trades in Sword and Shield here! Because we don't want people only signing up for this one and leaving the official one with very few participants. You will need to sign up at least one other category as well (either the official Wi-Fi category or Non Wi-Fi).

    NOTICE: Please DO NOT post anything discussing the Sword and Shield games here, period. Any discussion for the games or content in the games should go in the respective Pokemon Sword and Shield section

    A Few General Rules:

    • Please keep the username of the person you are gifting (your recipient) to yourself! It is meant to be a surprise.
    • You MUST submit some form of gift to Chakramaster by December 21st. Please don't leave it until the last minute!*
    • You may send more than one gift if you like.
    • Your gift MUST somehow be relevant to your recipient. This is easy to do, as you may include anything that your recipient included in their sign-up post such as their favorite Pokémon or color.

    *If you cannot get a gift together in time for the December 21st deadline, please send a PM to myself, Chakramaster ahead of time, preferably by the 20th if you are sure you cannot make the deadline. This will give me a few days to get a replacement gift for whoever is missing out. You will NOT be banned from next year's Secret Santa if you are unable to procure a gift and let me know in time; you will, however, be banned from next year's event if you tell me too late (21st or later). It's just not good and doesn't look well with people leaving it till the last minute, as it is unfair on multiple people.



    Submitting Your Gift:
    PM Chakramaster with the following information BY DECEMBER 21st.
    DO NOT POST GIFTS HERE! That’ll spoil the surprise! D=

    If you are sending a non-Wifi gift, please send the PM with the following form filled out:
    Code:
    [B]Recipient:[/B]
    [B]Description:[/B]
    [B]Note:[/B]
    [B]Gift:[/B]
    [spoiler][/spoiler]


    If you are sending a Wifi gift, please send the PM with the following form filled out:
    Code:
    [B]Recipient:[/B]
    [B]Note:[/B]
    [B]Description of Pokémon:[/B]
    • Those receiving Wifi gifts will be told what Pokemon they will be getting on Christmas Day! However, YOU will be responsible for setting up a trade with your recipient.



    Your gift MUST be PM’d to Chakramaster by December 21st. Fail to do so and you will be banned from participating in the Secret Santa event next year! Last minute gifts are no fun and are not fair on your recipient. Please don’t leave it until the last minute!

    - If you need to drop out or cannot get a gift prepared, let myself, Chakramaster know soon as you can! There's no penalty for having to drop out and letting me know. You will only be banned from next year if you give me no notice and your gift has not been submitted on time!


    Thank you for participating, and remember, have fun!

    Everyone has a dream that fills their heart. A journey they must take. A destiny to fulfill. As close as your imagination exists a magical place, where wondrous creatures with incredible powers help make dreams come true. It's the world of Pokemon!!"
