Hello! Welcome to the 6th Wi-Fi Secret Santa installment! I know this is a bit earlier Not even Thanksgiving but I thought posting this now would give some folks sometime to breed things for someone else!

please know that the Pokémon does NOT need to be shiny at all!

Here how it works:
All you have to do is post in this thread, filling out the form at the bottom of this post. This helps us get to know you and what kind of Pokémon you like a little better! Then, all of the signups will be shuffled and you'll be randomly assigned someone to get a gift for. Trying to take their answers in to account, you have the task of getting a Pokémon that you think they'll love to trade to them! Additionally, you'll receive a gift from someone else who joined.

  1. Sign-ups are open from now until 11:59 PM on December 10th GMT-5. Signing-up is easy as posting in this thread and answering the questions!
  2. Once the sign-ups are closed, I will send PMs/DMs of the user you are paired with to get your gift ready. If you are struggling with finding inspiration, you can see if the user has some old forum post talking about their Pokemon.
  3. Keep me posted: if you are having troubles or something comes up that is fine. If that is the case, I will find another user who can step in as a replacement Santa. If no one else can, I will step in as the substitute.
  4. Once Christmas is here, I will announce the parings in this post. You will have a week (or more if needed) to give your gift to your paired user. If you so wish, feel free to post what your partner gave you in this thread~

I offer my best greetings,

Let me preface this by graciously extending my genuine gratitude to our kind and hardworking host.
Despite the fact that I've been a Wi-Fi forumgoer for almost 7 years, I've never actually participated before.
The reason for that is that I'm usually busy around this time of the year and I didn't want to disappoint people.
I, thus, welcome the opportunity to sign up for my first ever Secret Santa event, especially also as a back-up Santa.
I'll gladly donate additional prizes if need be; nobody should have to go without a gift.

Here's to a fun community event. Stay safe and healthy everyone!
Best holiday greetings.
