I beat all 8 gyms and got through victory road with a team I caught trained and raised myself during that game. Then I traded over my level 88 mewtwo from black 1 and just destroyed the elite 4. So anyway, what do you guys do? Trade over higher level pokemon every time you beat a gym, not trade until the game is completely beaten or not trade at all?

"Not until I beat the game."

...is what I want to say.. But, truth is I traded over a Lv. 15 Petilil (holding a Sun Stone) and a Lv. 15 Shiny Absol to my White 2 from White after beating Roxie. Those were my only trades until I beat the game. Then I kinda went ballistic.

I didn't trade 'cause I didn't need to. The, after I beat the elite four, I traded over a ditto to breed some pokemon.

I won't usually trade unless I'm ditching my starter and need a Pokemon in the beginning of the game, and then after the Elite 4 when I'm trying to catch 'em all. :P

I wouldn't usually trade my Pokemon over, but I usually may sometimes trade eggs over.

The only things I have traded over thus far is Victini and Keldeo. The former because I wanted to see Victini get excited at Victory Island and Keldeo because it was on a friend's game who didn't want the legendary and he was moving so I needed to put it on my game. Otherwise I usually do little to no trading.

I trade over my pokemon to another game so it'll level up faster and also so I can give it TM's that I don't have yet in the other game. I did trade over my Weavile from Black 1 to my Black 2 so I can have a strong pokemon as a back up just in case some of my other pokemon lose in the elite 4.

I only traded Keldeo over, part of the fun of playing a new game is using different pkmn, and overcoming the challenges in-game.

I tend not to trade over any stronger Pokémon until I've completed the game because I like to use the Pokémon I caught in the game to beat it.

I only trade after completing the main game as my pokemon on my other games would make it to easy.

I traded like 10 eggs over before I even beat Roxie on White 2. I spent a week breeding them all for that reason on White.

But yeah I trade pretty consistently, doesn't matter how far into the game I am.

I trade over my breeding projects from past games as soon as I can, even if this means buying a lot of Poke Balls to use on Pokemon as trade fodder. I have the breeding projects hold Nuggets or Star Pieces to compensate for the money spent.

I've only traded with myself once just before the 7th gym, I sent a Lv.51 Beartic for Drayden's gym, My Lv.100 Charizard just to have it ready for when I beat Marlon, and I sent my Lv.79 Mewtwo over too, 'cause once I beat Drayden I could use it if I got into a scrape I couldn't get out of. Oh, and I sent Arceus too, but I don't plan on using it. I have Reshiram and Zekrom at Lv.100 too, might send those over. I will try the Elite Four without the over-levelled 'mons first (well, might take the Mewtwo in just in case!), but if I'm failing or finding it too difficult, I'll just floor them with the Lv.100 ones.

I'll trade with myself extensively once I complete the game, just to get my dex done.

I've never trade over stronger pokemon, usually only after Elite 4 and for the sole purpose of quickly filling up my pokedex. I prefer to use pokemon I caught in game for battling so each of my games has a different set of pokemon I use to battle.

I didn't trade since I didn't see the need to until after I've at least beaten the Elite Four and Champion. I like to start fresh when new main series games come out and trade over to EV train/fight the Subway/fill my Pokedex once I'm done with the plot!

Yeah, kind of often. Normally just some lower level pokemon so I can raise them with my others.

Whenever I start a new game, I import an egg, that's for sure, but I often also add in the odd egg or low level Pokémon once or twice during the game. Whenever I trade, It's always a Pokémon bellow level 10, unless it's a shiny, or I'm trading to my storage game

I try not to trade anything to my new games if I don't have to. I try to make living pokedexes every game, so I'd rather get another one of what I need instead of have gaps in the older game.

I don't until I defeat the Elite 4 because every new game is meant to be a new adventure every time, and I believe that it defeats the purpose and takes all the fun out of it! But yeah after the Elite 4 I trade over quite a bit.

I only trade eggs if I haven't beaten the Elite 4. I don't like using Pokemon from my old games because I prefer starting the game with new Pokemon and training them. If there's a Pokemon I'd like to be in my team, then I get an egg of that Pokemon and I trade it (it's what I did with my Archen), but never high-level Pokemon.
