EditHow to Send Gifts

Occasionally, PokeStops will drop Gifts, which you can then send to Friends on your Friend List.

1. Once you’ve added a friend, simply tap on them from your Friend List to get a closer look.

2. Then, choose “Send Gift.”

3. From there, you can choose which Gift Box you want to send.


You will not now what’s inside each box, but it will include a “postcard” from the PokeStop where you picked up the gift.

Be wary about sending Gifts. People will be able to determine your general location if you send gifts from the same places often.

Gifts will include a “postcard” from the PokeStop where you picked up the gift, as well as a rare item. These items include rarer items within the normal PokeStop pool, but you won’t know what’s inside the Gifts boxes until a friend opens it. Here are the potential gifts:

Each gift will contain a set of three items. If you received only two, that means the third item was meant to be an Alolan Egg, but your egg bag was full. Make sure to hatch those eggs!
