It contains a message with up to nine words and phrases using the predefined list from the easy chat system, structured as four rows of two slots and a fifth row with one slot. The player writes the message when giving this item to be held by a Pokémon. The player can unlock additional phrases from the Hipster in Mauville City. 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, in the Pokémon Day Care, traded to Pokémon Colosseum or XD: Gale of Darkness, or transferred to Pokémon Box: Ruby & Sapphire or into Generation IV games through the Pal Park.

This item can be removed by Knock Off. However, it cannot be stolen by Covet or Thief.
