  3. Just got a birthday check-in gift today

When I checked in today, I got a Level Up as a check-in gift. This was very unusual because the check-in reward system does not have a Level Up available as a possible reward.

Then it occurred to me that today was my birthday, so that would likely explain why I got a Level Up when checking in. I don't remember this happening last year, so this must be a new feature that was added to the game (probably in the 1.5 version update). I checked my 3DS system settings to see if there was a birthday set, and sure enough it was set to today.

I also fooled around with the birthday setting on my 3DS and moved the date forward by one day (changing it to tomorrow) to see if I can get another Level Up when checking in tomorrow. I doubt this would work and the game might detect this, but it would be interesting to try it anyways.

If you have the celebration Pikachu already you get level ups which is nice.

Yes, I have confirmed that a Level Up is indeed the reward for checking in 10 times during the month if the corresponding celebration Pikachu has already been obtained.

Doesn't it say that when you get the Level Up, that it's your reward for checking in ten times?

(Plus if you read the text on the Celebration Pikachu notice it tells you about the alternate prize)

I never bothered checking the notices anymore since we're not getting any new content for this game. But yeah, the Level Up reward was mentioned in the Celebration Pikachu notice.

And just as I figured, changing the date of my birthday in the 3DS system settings didn't do a thing when I checked in today, which meant the Level Up reward was unrelated to your birthday.

Quiet, whippersnapper! When I was your age, games came with their manuals printed on paper! None of this digital nonsense, no siree!
