I got a Luvdisc on Wonder Trade and I have a problem of not looking for items when I'm Wonder Trading and noticed it had a Heart Scale as I was sending it away. It upset me. I need lots of Heart Scales.

If you're looking for a lot of Heart Scales, just teach a pokemon Thief and use Old Rod at Cyllage City to battle Luvdiscs and watch the Heart Scales roll in.

PS. make sure said pokemon isn't holding an item already. If your pokemon steals the heart scale, it will automatically tell you in battle.

I don't abuse Wonder Trading, so I'm a bit different in this regard, but...

I still hate it when people ask for illegals/unobtainables on GTS.

Atully theres another way to get Heart Scales too. If you used the Pokemon Global Link, you can send in the pokemiles you ern thu trading and buy them with the points on the site. You just have to syce you game then buy the item and sync agian to get it ingame. Thu sycing can be a bit of a pain as it always seems to be busy :/

I haven't had any trade fails in my past, but I'm sure there are many others in the Trade Corner forum who have experienced such a disaster.

I totally couldn't find my Everstone today. I either traded it on accident or stupidly sent something though Wonder Trade... :(

Good thing I can steal some from wild Roggenrola.

i used to always trade away my EXP-share but that's no longer a problem so... nothing has really happened yet in X-Y, though someone failed on the other end because he/she traded away there gardevoir with its megastone through wonder trade.

I've accidentally put up shiny/legendary Pokemon on GTS while cloning an uncountable amount of times. I'm a bit paranoid about that, so I usually ask for something impossible to avoid losing them (like a level 9 and under Mewtwo).
I also accidentally traded away my first ever RNG'd Pokemon (a shiny Eevee) because I had forgotten that it was the first. I just remembered that it had poor IVs and I would never really use it. D:

I traded a Haunter and a Kadabra and a Pumpkaboo all with everstones. I got Phantump on wonder trade. I traded for Kadabra but I looked for a Beldum and someone wanted Treavenant. I got so mad. I also traded a Lucario for a Riolu because someone wanted a Riolu for a Pumpkaboo. I traded my Blazicken on wonder trade and Yvetal and Delphox and all my good ones because I was restarting my game. I wanted to make someone happy.

I recently traded my Xerneas for a shiny Clauncher on the GTS. It was only after the trade had started that I remembered chain fishing is a thing, and shiny Clauncher is pretty much worthless. I tried to turn my communications switch off, but it was too late by then.

I actually like getting trade evos with Everstones. Cause that just means I get more Everstones! :D

When I managed to get my shiny Pumpkaboo off the GTS it came with an Everstone. And tbh, shiny Pumpkaboo > shiny Gourgeist.

Try putting it back up for another Xerneas. Even though shiny fishables are very common, I do see shiny Claunchers get taken for XY legendaries.

I had a epic wonder trade fail. I got a Charmander in wonder trade, and then put it back in wonder trade because I had a lot of Charmanders. at the last second I realised it had a Charizardnite X on it I'm sad now.

Thankfully haven't WT'd away any items yet. I always take a long pause and review the Pokemon I'm selecting to trade. I usually empty my party and put a bunch of pokes that I am going to trade on the roster and don't scroll over to my PC boxes at all.

Nice to hear that people trade legends for a shiny... maybe I'll try to get some shiny Pokemon from a friend safari and put them up for the other two bird legends I am missing

I thought you couldn't trade megastones on Wondertrade.

I narrowly missed one. I got the Ralts from Diatha and didn't know it was holding the mega stone (so I put it in my tradable box) until I was reading about mega stones and saw it. I immediately turned on my game to make sure I still had it. I did, which was good, because a few weeks later I traded off the pokemon I didn't need.

I also once thought I traded off my soothe bell. I found it though.

so far so good. I'm always careful, because when I put beedrill on wonder trade, I always check I'm not trading the one I use on my team (L69). I almost re-traded a foongus with a tinymushroom, though.

I'm sure this counts:

At time I made the trade, I didn't realized I needed a Shiny Stone to make Minccino evolve (in my mind I kept thinking I needed a Moon Stone) - it was until read it on Bulbagardens that Shiny Stone is required, I realized I had traded that stone away. I was kind of disappointed with myself.

Luckily for me, in a future trade (after my incident above) someone sent me a shiny stone (very happy with Cinccino now).
