Having trouble finding what you want on the GTS? Got an abundance of cool Pokemon that you don't know what to do with? You've come to the right place. Just write up a post specifying which Pokemon you are looking for, and what Pokemon you are willing to offer in return. Or if you have cool Pokemon you're willing to trade to other users who might appreciate them more, you're free to do that here as well.
Here's a few examples of good posts:
Seeking: Breloom/Shroomish with Technician (Preferably Female)
Offering: Froakie with Protean, or Vulpix with Drought.
Offering: Shiny Fletchling, PM an offer.
Seeking: Charizardite X
Offering: Charizardite Y
Here's a few general rules and tips to make sure this thread runs as smoothly as possible:
- Try to handle the Friend Code exchange and trade logistics through PM or this could devour the thread.
- Once your trade has been resolved edit your initial post to make this clear. (It would also be polite to thank the user when you do this, so we know how cool they are.)
- Feel free to use this thread for trading items, as indicated by the mega stone example above. Items display before a trade now, so you can make these trades with confidence.
- We're operating on the honor system, it's not as easy to trick someone as it has been in past games, but it's still important to use common sense when trading.
- However, if a user does do something dishonest, send me a PM and I'll blacklist them in the OP so other users know not to trade with them.
- Try to only post reasonable trades. I don't want to see a bunch of "Seeking: Xerneas Offering: Farfetch'd" We've got the GTS for that.
- You can say you're seeking something without putting up what you will offer in return, however please try to think of something.
- Offering something without knowing what you want is totally fine on the other hand.
- Dumb nicknames are encouraged.
