Introducing the Postcard Book!

Introducing the Postcard Book!


Being together is the best gift of all, and you’ll soon be able to save a little bit of that feeling of togetherness with Gifts you receive from your friends.

This holiday season, we’re excited to introduce the Postcard Book! Whenever a Trainer sends a gift, a postcard from that location is also attached based on the Pokéstop location that gift was from. Ever wanted to save memories from locations that you or your friends visited? You’ll soon be able to do just that by pinning Postcards to your Postcard Book.

The Postcard Book feature will be released at the start of the Pokémon GO Holidays event.

Get gifting this holiday season, and collect Postcards from your friends and family!
