So guys if you were pokemon trainers, would you trade your pokemon with other trainers?

Personally I probably wouldn't, because I would get too attached to my beloved pokes. Maybe I would trade my pokemon if I wouldn't use them so much - like a trainer can only have a maximum of 6 pkmn with him and so he's not able to use all of his pkmn all the time. But then again I would probably change the pkmn I carry with me all the time, so I would be attached to all my pokes. So I guess I wouldn't trade.

I would have a deal with someone. For example:

I trade my recently caught Gastly for his/her Geodude. We both evolve it and trade them back so I have my Gengar and he/she has his/her Golem.

Then do the same for all the ones that evolve by trading.

If it's not for evolution, probably I wouldn't, unless someone offers me a Shiny Magikarp for my Charmeleon...(A Shiny Umbreon would be cool as well)

Well if I had to catch as many pokemon as I could (if they were needed by any prof. for research and things like that) I would trade them, because I wouldn't be attached to them if I wouldn't use them. But I would never trade a pokemon I would befriend with just because I like a pokemon another trainer has or his or her's pokemon is rare.

Meh, only if it's a pokémon I wasn't attached to and hadn't spent any time on. I mean, I dislike trading pokémon even in the games (only do it with fresh catches or eggs and only trade for untrained ones, except for evolutions xP). It's my work, you know? My sweat and tears that trained that little Caterpie from a wimpy level two to a high-level Butterfree! Everyone else ought to keep their grubby paws to themselves! xP I'd imagine that this sentiment would be even more true if pokémon were for real. I mean, would you faithfully train and raise a pet only to pawn it off to some random stranger? I think not. So yeah, I'm largely against trade in anything but eggs and freshly caught ones. Besides, training the pokémon through trial and error is the only way to get a proper fix on what it can and can't do, strengths and limitations. It's a lot harder to learn with one that has been trained by someone else.

Most likely not. If I did it would be for untrained, freshly caught ones. I only trade in the games to complete my poke-dex. Normally I just catch a pokemon myself, but sometimes you have to trade to obtain one.

So, no. I wouldn't trade my pokemon.

Heck no, especially not if I was really attached to them..

I might trade it, I might not. Depends on how attached to it I am.

I would if it was one of those Pokemon that sit around in the box all day. D8

Of course I'll trade you my Ho-oh for your Magikarp >.<

If someone had a Pokemon I liked better, then maybe. :x I would tend to collect my favorites, so it wouldn't make sense to trade them away. If I was looking for sheer power or a certain element, then yeah, I'd probably trade them. If this is like a "real-life" situation, then I think I'd become too attached to my Pokemon to trade any of them (unless they were evil and attacked me or something, lil' buggers <<).

I would`nt trade them because every pokemon is cute and are good if we train them!

I would not trade my Pokemon because I would probably be attached to them.

Nopes, if they are my favourites, if they aren't, I wouldn't care what happened if they got traded.

Well said I couldn't agree with you more^-^

Heck no I wouldnt trade my Pokemon. I'd love mine way too much to trade it for another. I dont think Ill be trading box Pokemon all that much either, since I hardly/never catch any Pokemon after I have my top 6. Once I have my 6, Im set, and dont care for catching a Pokemon just to let it sit in the PC. "Catch 'em all" nothing- they're not toys. :\

There are only two ways that I would trade:

*Evolution purposes, like how you get my favorite Pokemon, Gengar. Of course, if I were trading for this, I'd make sure that the person I was trading with would give it back right away.

*Trading a disliked Pokemon for something more likeable. I think that pretty much explains itself.

I wouldn't trade my Pokemon even if it were a caterpie, I'll raise it until a Butterfree and then I'll keep it

i might, but that is only because i would catch extra just for that reason, i would never trade one i really liked or caught to be part of my team.

I would only trade it if it were a new Pokemon (from wild) and i wasn't attached to it. I might not even trade it for evolution. I get attached to Pokemon easily. For example my Absol. At first it was only a Pokemon (for about a day) then it was my best friend. Pokemon FTW!

Assuming that in a real pokemon world you wouldn't have version exclusive pokemon, I imagine you wouldn't have to, except for evolution purposes, and thats's the only situation I'd trade in.

I wouldn't trade the good ones, but if I caught a really bratty and/or stubborn one, I'd trade it.

no there would be version specific. pokemon are spread around the world...

How would there be version specific in the real world. You have ONE copy of the world, not two separate ones. Think, Ruby has Seedot on the same route that Sapphire has Lotad. You wouldn't wake up and say, "I'm gonna play this version of life today!"

Anyways, back on topic, I wouldn't trade either, unless it was for a very close friend who I know would treat the Pokemon well or if I know I'll get the Pokemon back.

I'd only trade if I knew the person it was going to and/or it wasn't a main part of my team, and even then, I might not go through with it. I get attached to things really easily.

I'd only trade to a trainer that I knew would take care of the Pokémon, and only if I wasn't too attached to the Pokémon.

Why would you assume otherwise? O_o

Finally, somebody with a brain says something with common sense.


ANYWAYS.

I doubt I'd trade Pokémon, but I won't say I wouldn't. You never know. Like if I caught a Slugma and someone offered me a Torkoal, I'll likely trade, unless I get attached to the Slugma, which I don't see happening. Then again, it's doubtful that I'd catch a Pokémon that I didn't really like much. I'd probably spend time looking for the ones (such as Torkoal) that I would train for certain.

If Pokemon were real, then hell no, I would never trade Pokemon. I don't really care about expanding my Pokedex or whatever, I just like my 6 Pokemon and that's enough. In terms of the Pokemon games though, then hell no.

Nope, it would be like trading a family member for a complete stranger. O.O
