Obey PokéCommunity Rules, especially the following:
— You may only discuss trading. Please keep chit-chat to a minimum; don't post your life stories. Please do not mini-mod or otherwise attempt to scold someone. If you see a rule-breaking post, report it to a Trade Moderator.
— Once a week, you can bump your very own Trade Shop, even if your thread is considered dead. You may not revive someone else's shop that was last posted in over 30 days ago.
— Do not trade Pokémon for monetary transactions nor material items including merchandise, collectibles, gift cards, etc. Keep the trading within the Pokémon video games.
— Posts here in Trade Shops do not need a minimum of 4 words & 25 characters.
All threads will undergo moderator approval before being displayed.
Just as in Trade Corner, all threads must be approved before becoming visible on the forum. Please be patient; we will get to your thread as soon as possible.
To have a Trade Shop, you must be offering at least TWENTY different species of Pokémon.
If you have less than 20 specific offers, use the Quick Trades section.
There will be one active Trade Shop per person.
Each person gets one trade shop to offer all Pokémon and services. Contact a Trade Moderator if you need to edit your Shop's title, close your old Shop in order to make a new Shop, or merge/delete posts to aid your thread's layout.
Hacked Pokémon are prohibited.
Hacked Pokémon are Pokémon that cannot be obtained through normal gameplay, such as a Pokémon with an impossible move, ability, or ribbon. Fan-made events or not yet released Pokémon are also prohibited from being traded. In addition, while we encourage the use of Pokécheck for hack checking purposes, we do not endorse its use for trading nor cloning Pokémon that are not your own. Pokémon directly download from Pokécheck are considered hacked and forbidden from being traded. More information can be found at the Hack Report thread. Also, all shiny Mews are considered hacks and are not allowed to be traded here. For a complete list of commonly found hacks, click here
Cloning Services are not allowed in Trade Shops.
To avoid users from having their Pokémon stolen, you cannot offer/request cloning services in individual threads. Please use the Official Cloning Thread to find reputable cloners.
When hosting Giveaways, only give away your own Pokémon.
— Unless you have explicit permission from the Pokémon's owner, do not give away another person's Pokémon.
— Please do not set up your giveaway as a contest, as these threads tend to generate spam.
— You may hold a Giveaway within your Trade Shop, or create a separate thread in Quick Trades section.
Respect the distribution rights of a Pokémon.
Sometimes, a trader will ask you to not re-trade a highly rare Pokémon. If you agree to this at the time of trading for it, then respect the owner's terms. Intentionally disregarding distribution rights of an original trainer's Pokémon can result in an infraction.
