Global PokédeX Plus Forums _ News and Updates _ Secret Santa Exchange

Posted by: Zerxer Dec 24 2017, 12:06 AM

The Secret Santa Exchange is now open for deposits!

Once you know what Pokémon you want to enter into the exchange, you will use its Options dropdown and choose "Secret Santa Exchange" under the "Move to" option.

The exchange itself will happen after 11:55pm on December 25th, meaning you have two full days to deposit something. Depending on my availability, it will likely be hours later, or the next afternoon, but the ability to deposit will be disabled at reset.

Some reminders (and notes for newcomers):


I will open this thread for replies after the actual exchange happens.

Posted by: Zerxer Dec 26 2017, 01:04 AM

1,020 Pokémon have been exchanged! 883 users were matched up with something new to their dex.

Looks Like I've gotten myself a Snowman Munchlax Egg. For some reason, I thought that my Shiny Fake Groudon would turn into a Normal Shiny Groudon Egg, resulting in a Shiny Legend. My mistake, but I can't complain whatsoever!

Thank you to OniShadLink for your Pokemon!

EDIT: To not spam the thread too much:

QUOTE(Zerxer @ Dec 26 2017, 01:18 AM) *
Yeah, if the Pokémon has its own egg (like a corrupted novelty would), it'll revert to that instead of the pre-corrupted egg.


That makes good sense, I guess it just slipped my mind before throwing it into the exchange!

Also, Inu, if you happen to see this thread (or this post), I hope you enjoy having my Shiny Fake Groudon that I see you've received!

Posted by: Torchwicky Dec 26 2017, 01:33 AM

Sent off an extra shiny Shuppet (I was wise enough not to send Banette away... who knows what could've happened wink.gif ) and got a Nidoran-Male egg. Nidoking's a cool shiny!

Posted by: LittleLuckyLucy Dec 26 2017, 01:36 AM

I sent out my good luck shiny Togedemaru and got a Chatot in return.
Honestly I prefer shiny Chatot to the regular and it's one I didn't have yet o:

Sent out my spare shiny Zygarde Cell and receieved a Deibot in exchange. I don't recall the shiny colour for it, so I'm excited. Not sure who got my Zygarde but I hope it's one they don't have c:

I sent my Hoopa.
Thanks to Gandalf for your Rayquaza!

NOOOOOOOOOOO!!!

My roommate's mother came into town a bit unexpectedly on Friday and coupled with other family events I was unable to get onto GPX until now. Looks like I missed cutoff by about an hour and a half.

Congrats to all who participated, and here's hoping I can join in next year!

Posted by: YoRHa No9 Type S Dec 26 2017, 03:46 AM

Sent out an extra shiny Alolan Meowth, which it looks like nappimaija got. Thanks for the shiny Hawlucha, Corvus bennetti!

Posted by: Vande Dec 26 2017, 03:55 AM

Nope doesn't appear to have been yours. I am kinda feeling sorry for it - it's been exchanged a lot looking at the history.

Posted by: Matto Dec 26 2017, 04:52 AM

Sent in a Sh. Rotom and received a Sh. Bulbasaur, merry Christmas!

Posted by: Gigadyne Dec 26 2017, 04:58 AM

Oh how cool, that was mine! I went to browse the topic to see what people got so it's cool that your post was one of the first! He was my first shiny on here, so I hope you'll take care of him :^)

Sent in shiny nidoking, got shiny bounsweet! what a cutie!!

Posted by: chaotics Dec 26 2017, 05:28 AM

i sent a shiny totodile and got a shiny rowlet in return - i'm actually on a shiny hunt for one right now!! so i'm chuffed :')

Posted by: MiyukoKaioh Dec 26 2017, 06:00 AM

I sent a Tapu (I don't remember its English name) and got a Meloetta. Thank you, Cycloneblaze!! happy.gif

Posted by: Shintarooo Dec 26 2017, 06:14 AM

I sent in an extra Sh. Oricorio Pa'u and got Sh. Poochyena. I'm happy I got Poochyena, it has been in my future shiny hunts -list.

Posted by: Amberfunk Dec 26 2017, 06:26 AM

Sent in a shiny abra and got a shiny spinarak. Didn't have it and it's a beautiful shiny. I remembered to bookmark the shiny I sent this year and the person did not have a shiny abra yet happy.gif

Posted by: Asbel Lhant Dec 26 2017, 06:32 AM

I sent in a shiny Kyogre and got a shiny Hoopa in return. Thanks jwcool happy.gif.

Posted by: Rita Zyon Dec 26 2017, 06:38 AM

Sent in a shiny popplio and got mudkip in return which I did not have yet. Poor mudkip though as it has been exchanged twice before. I totally forgot to book the link to my popplio so not sure who got it, but, hope they are happy with him.

Posted by: North Star Dec 26 2017, 06:42 AM

I put in my spare Sh. Cellgarde, which went to Lady Yuki, and got holly's Festive Makuhita in exchange happy.gif

Posted by: Necrozma Dec 26 2017, 07:39 AM

I put in a Cosmoem and got a Ho-oh back. I'm happy-I didn't have a Ho-oh yet. happy.gif

Posted by: miu Dec 26 2017, 07:51 AM

Got a shiny Klink, who seems to have been in the exchange before as well, thanks Valkyrie!

My shiny Carnivine, which was my very first shiny on this site, went to someone who didn't have a shiny Carnivine yet, so I hope she enjoys it ^^

For those who haven't bookmarked their entries: try to find the Pokemon's page in your browser history. For me it was easy, as my Carnivine was nicknamed, so I just searched for its nickname; otherwise something like "miu's Sh. Carnivine" should've worked, so maybe you could find your entry too happy.gif

Posted by: Cycloneblaze Dec 26 2017, 07:58 AM

I sent in a spare Meloetta I had and I got necrotizing's Darkrai. Kinda disappointing because I was looking for something new to my dex and that's not new, but I was barely active at all yesterday, so I guess I'm not surprised.

But I'm glad you like her! That more than makes up for it. happy.gif

e: Looks like the only Legendary Pokémon I'm actually missing are a form of Landorus, a form of Keldeo, and three Tapus. I think I'll treat myself to my Legend Vouchers today grin.gif

Posted by: Aussie Riolu Dec 26 2017, 08:03 AM

Sent a Shiny Riolu and got a Shiny Alolan Vulpix in return, which ironically, I was Shiny Hunting! The chances of that! LOL

Posted by: Tiamat Dec 26 2017, 08:36 AM

Sent out a shiny sunlion, got some kind of Dialga from My Immortal in return (it hasn't hatched yet, so ~Who Knows~)! It's too bad that my history doesn't have the Solgaleo in it; I kind of want to know who it went to.

Posted by: stevonnie Dec 26 2017, 09:00 AM

I sent in my shiny torterra I got from the lab and received a bulbasaur from Nonight! Pretty happy with that as its a shiny I wanted to hunt in the future, now I only need squirtle from the Kanto starters and I have the complete trio.

Posted by: Icicle Dec 26 2017, 09:06 AM

Sh. Dracowymsy went in, got a Sh. Zygarde Cell in return. Not on my laptop to see who got mine, but I hope they needed it!

Posted by: Vulpix D Dec 26 2017, 09:19 AM

Sent in a Spare Nihilego and got a Lugia in return.

Feel kind of bad that my first thought was to put Lugia in the exchange next year. Unfortunately, i already have Shadow lugia and a regular Lugia

Hope whoever got my Nihilego enjoys it though.

Posted by: Zyxyz Dec 26 2017, 09:21 AM

Sent my spare shiny Alolan Vulpix to tenta, got a shiny Zangoose from Shiny T. Not the flashiest of shinies, but it's one I didn't have before, so I'd say that counts as a success!

(Btw, for those looking to find where their sent mon went—another way is to look at your Shine Recorder and find it under your completed hunts list, if you sent a shiny that you had hunted for.)

Posted by: Stufful Dec 26 2017, 09:36 AM

Sent a Sh. Hoopa and got a Sh. Latias love.gif my absolute favorite Shiny in the entire dex. So happy <3 Thanks Orenji!

Posted by: LetitiaCharon Dec 26 2017, 10:19 AM

Sent in a shiny Korechu, got a shiny Zygarde Cell. Which would've been great if I didn't already have one I caught in the safari Ż\_(ツ)_/Ż Gonna hazard a wild guess that because I didn't have the egg info, the database thought I didn't have it.

Oh well. Thanks, whoever sent it. ^_^.gif

Posted by: The Kraken Dec 26 2017, 10:32 AM

Sent a Suicune, got a Yveltal! Very glad, still needed the egg dex for this one, so it puts me one more step closer to filling up my legend dex.

Posted by: Lucius Malfoy Dec 26 2017, 10:32 AM

I sent the spare shiny Dunsparce that I got in last year's exchange to m190049 and got Much Lawlz shiny Shellder in exchange. That's cool I didn't have a shiny Shellder yet, so thanks!

Posted by: Wastelander Dec 26 2017, 10:34 AM

Sent in a spare shiny Treecko, got a [s]rock[s] a shiny Nosepass in return,so fair trade as i wasn't going to shiny hunt it.

Posted by: Totodile Dec 26 2017, 10:42 AM

Really happy with the Uxie egg I've received! I hope that whoever received my 'mon is happy to get it! I can't even remember which I exchanged - was it Jirachi? Edit - it was a Victini, which is now with Grass Start!

My new Uxie has a bit of a sad history, abandoned to the Shelter before being put up for the Exchange. I'll hopefully give it a settled life here!

I hope everybody's happy with their exchanges, and merry Christmas all!

Posted by: Veradana Dec 26 2017, 10:47 AM

I sent in a spare unown Y that I'd snagged from the safari zone, (I later got one of my own from the exploration) looks like the person who got it was missing that one, so that's one fewer times they have to do the exploration if they're trying to get all of them.

EDIT: Wait, I just looked again and the unown I sent was the one I'd gotten from the exploration. same result in the end, but a shorter history on the pokemon.


I got a snover in return, which is nice. I was hoping to get an unown of my own though.


Posted by: Alex Mercer Dec 26 2017, 11:01 AM

Got a shiny Porygon - neat, I still needed one! Put in a shiny Lapras, so I hope whoever gets that isn't disappointed.

Now to find a potato battery...

Posted by: nokrow889 Dec 26 2017, 11:05 AM

i sent in a shiny bulbasaur got a larvitar in return im happy as heck

Posted by: Eiko Carol Dec 26 2017, 11:13 AM

I sent a Shaymin and got a Kyogre. Hoenn is my favourite region! happy.gif

Posted by: Mikaku Onchi Dec 26 2017, 12:49 PM

It's super late already oops. I sent in a Sh. Palkia (I wonder if it's the one which went to Vande? If it is I'm sorry it wasn't the best present I hope next time you get one you really want) and got a Sh. Heatran. I'm pretty happy with it, thank you @Furfrou!

Posted by: Darky Dec 26 2017, 12:50 PM

I've got a shiny Shellderboy - I'm so happy^__^ hopefully, my shiny bulbasaur clone has been a wanted gift too=)

I've sent Groudon and I received Kyogre grin.gif
I could sent shiny, more rary legendary or shiny novelty but I decided to send summonable Pokemon ^^ I even wanted to get Kyogre because I didn't have dex entry for his egg grin.gif

Posted by: Gryphaena Dec 26 2017, 03:43 PM

I sent out a shiny male Swampert and I received Lumbernoob's Shiny female Kecleon.

Thanks so much! :]


Posted by: Surreal SaDiablo Dec 26 2017, 03:53 PM

I think I sent a male Gardevoir... Not shiny, I only have 1 shiny Gardevoir and I spent the whole month hunting that silly thing. I got in return Siffuccia's Tangela. I don't have a lot in my dex, and I'm fairly certain that's one I don't have, so Thanks!! happy.gif

Indeed it was yours they got, I went and warmed it cat.gif

I put in a S. Litleo that was a gender fail, and got a S. Sawk. Not one I particularly care for so it'll be next year's secret santa, but it's another point to my shiny dex atleast

Posted by: Jyoni Jyostah Dec 26 2017, 04:32 PM

Put in a Sh. Skitty, got a Sh. Klink, neat.

EDIT: Just realized there was a Sh. Klink achievement. Double neat.

Posted by: anybody Dec 26 2017, 05:01 PM

I'm pretty pleased, in obtaining Gen 3 eggs for the coins I hatched a Shiny Treecko and a Shiny Mawile which was pretty darn beast!! I traded my Shiny Treecko, already having one, and got what I presume to be a shiny DEINO in return!! Super hyped, but curious to know who got my Treecko?? Any way I could find out? Cause I'm a nerd... hmmm

Got a Shiny Sableye in return!

Posted by: KikiRukata Dec 26 2017, 09:18 PM

I got super excited when I saw mine. I sent in an extra Sh. Eevee and received a Sh. Lapras in return. The person who got mine had been a user for many years so and hadn't yet gotten a Sh.Eevee. And I didn't yet have the Sh. Lapras! Thank you entei554 for the beautiful purple Lapras! And I hope Broken Butterfly enjoys their new Eevee! <3

I put in a shiny Caterpie and got a shiny Snorunt. That was on my list of pokemon to shiny hunt, so thanks Mimiqui! I hope whoever got my Caterpie is happy with it.

Posted by: eludicatorflame Dec 26 2017, 11:07 PM

Sent my shiny Decudieye, got a Charmander, it looks like? it evolves into a green pokemon choice so i'm happy yay. i hope whoever got my egg is happy too!

Posted by: Sebastian DeBeste Dec 26 2017, 11:43 PM

I got your Litleo, and it was actually the gender I was hoping for! grin.gif I sent out a spare shiny Smoochum that I hatched by chance after already completing my Smoochum hunt. I didn't take down the ID for it so I'm not sure who it went to, but I hope she was wanted.

EDIT: Like grumpish I tried searching my browser history and found out Celestial received my Smoochum. I hope you didn't have her!

Posted by: Crysta Blade Dec 27 2017, 07:27 AM

Put in a Shiny Gardevoir I picked up from the Shelter some years ago that went to Quaggie13, got a Ralts in return from DanieleGrigo. Guess I'll be getting Shiny Kirlia Dex cred sooner than I thought. Life's kinda funny like that sometimes.

Posted by: Blue Winter Roses Dec 27 2017, 08:22 AM

Sent a shiny malamar i caught from the shelter, got a shiny spinda in return. I don't like spinda, so it'll be going in next year. I actually LOVE inkay, but malamar is so ugly, so hopefully whoever got it will get to keep it as an inkay if they prefer it that way!

Posted by: Broken Butterfly Dec 27 2017, 07:03 PM

Sounds like you got my Dageki, sorry. Had a feeling whomever wound up with that thing wouldn't like it. If you are into completing your dex, at the very least that is one you will not have to waste time shiny hunting.


Sent in Shiny Dageki and received a Klink. Apparently Klink's are popular with the Secret Santa.
