Advent Calendar

In The Site Department

Serebii.net Advent Calendar

As we have done since 2003, this year I have created an Advent Calendar. For those of you who are unfamiliar with the term, an Advent Calendar is essentially a countdown until Christmas. Every day, a new puzzle and a variety of new downloads for you to enjoy. As time goes on, the puzzles get harder and the downloads get more plentiful, so be sure to check back every day. Continuing on from the last few year, we are doing a variety of puzzles which can be done in-browser rather than via printing. Click the picture you go to our Advent Calendar.

Until Next Time, See Ya
