A Wonder Card is sent together with a Mystery Gift, and it usually provides detail for the gift the player has received. In Pokémon FireRed, LeafGreen, and Emerald, only one Wonder Card could be stored at a time, and players must delete the Wonder Card in order to receive another one. Pokémon Diamond, Pearl, Platinum, HeartGold, and SoulSilver raise the limit to three, and Pokémon Black and White raise it once more to twelve. Discarded cards can never be retrieved.

Gifts bundled with Wonder Cards can be received from a deliveryman who waits in the second floor of any Pokémon Center in Pokémon FireRed, LeafGreen, and Emerald, and in any Poké Mart in all future games. If a card is deleted before the gift is received, the gift will be deleted as well.

Obtained Wonder Cards can be viewed by accessing Mystery Gift on the main menu of any game with Mystery Gift before Pokémon Black and White (if it has already been unlocked), and selecting the "Check Card" option or the "Check the Card Album" option for Pokémon Black and White. Wonder Cards contain such information as the name of the bundled gift, whether or not the player has already received the gift before, the in-game event caused by the Pokémon, the date the gift was received in the game (only in games after Pokémon FireRed, LeafGreen, and Emerald), and a brief description of the gift; an icon of the associated Pokémon is also displayed for further identification.

Some Wonder Cards for games may also be sent to other players, enabling a player with an event to distribute the card for the event to players that do not yet have it.
