SECOND ANNUAL SMOGON SECRET SANTA GIVEAWAY!

You wanted it, and it's finally here! It's time for yet another round of Secret Santa! Esteemed year-round giver Eisenherz has a lot on his plate, but has given me his blessing in instigating this year's round of gift-giving fun! I hope you're ready to make a few Smogonites' Christmases a little more cheery!

THE RULES:
  1. From today until the 16th of December, or until we get a nice round number around that time, you sign up in this thread by filling out the survey below. Note the last three questions, as they are the most important!
  2. After signups close, you have until the 25th to get a Pokémon for your Secret Santa Recipient! Don't worry, I've got a spreadsheet to track who can give what to whom. Use the surveys for inspiration, or look through old posts in the forum! I'm sure they'll love any gift that has thought put into it, though.
    1. Please keep me updated on the status of gifts. If you can't manage to get something in time, let me know ASAP so I can find a substitute Santa.
  3. When Christmas arrives, the pairings will be announced! After that, you'll have a week to organize getting and receiving gifts from your various Santas. This is the best part of it all, so make it count!
While you all will be receiving gifts from your Secret Santas, we also will have a participation gift available for all who join the festivities! A Kantonian Exeggutor, courtesy of Eisenherz !
