There are two ways to get to Pelipper Post Office: you can either go there from Pokemon Square or you can access it from the title screen. Keep in mind that Pelipper Post Office is not available while you are inside a dungeon.

While inside the Pelipper Post Office, you can choose to rescue other people that are playing the game. This is extremely useful especially if you do not have any rescue jobs available on the board. To do so, select Help a Friend from the menu and choose between either Internet or Password.

Take an Online Request

If you have a Nintendo Online subscription, you can access an online bulletin board where people have posted their rescue requests via the Internet option.

Enter a Password

If you don't have a Nintendo Online subscription, you can still take rescue requests by entering a 30-character password. You can get these from friends that need rescuing, but you can also find those on lots of online message boards where people can post and ask for help.

Title Screen

Additionally, you can also access the Pelipper Office through the Title Screen Menu. This is how you can access the Pelipper Office if ever you are going to rescue your team with a different batch of Pokemon.
