It contains a message with up to three sentence slots which can be filled with words and phrases using the predefined list from the easy chat system. This was designed to be readable in games of any language. The BridgeMail items have a wide variety of sentence structures to be selected.

The player writes the message when giving this item to be held by a Pokémon. The message can be sent to other games of the same generation by trading the Pokémon holding this item.

The message remains available as long as this item is held by a Pokémon or stored in the Mailbox. This item is unable to have any message when stored in the Bag or in the Item Storage System, but there is the option to delete any existing message when storing this item in these places. Once the message is deleted from this item, the player is able to reuse it with a new message. A Pokémon holding this item cannot be placed in the PC or in the Pokémon Day Care. As with other held items, a Pokémon holding this item cannot be transferred into Generation VI games through the Poké Transporter and the Pokémon Bank.

This item can be removed by Knock Off. However, it cannot be stolen by Covet, Thief, or the Pickpocket Ability, it causes Bestow and Fling to fail when used by the holder, and causes Switcheroo or Trick to fail when used by or on the holder.
