View Full Version : Most/Least memorable trade

November 12th, 2012, 6:43 PM
Throughout your trading escapades, there's at least one trade that stands out in your mind. You just received that prized Pokemon you've been searching weeks for, you got something special from a friend, you received a generous donation that kick-started your shop, or you just completed your very first trade. Whatever the trade may have been, what's your most memorable trade?

Trading isn't always all sugar and rainbows. So, what's your least memorable trade? Try not to name names, though. ;)

Bonus: Share a weird trade story!

Hmmmm... my most memorable? It's pretty much blurred now but basically, when I got most of my breeding stock off Becky and Blade. :)

Least memorable was being online for like 4 hours straight waiting for someone who said they'll be on wifi to get on. Gave up in the end and when he came back looking for his 'mon, it was a repeat for another 20 minutes. He came back asking again and I pretty much told him to flip off. :P

Hmmm. I would have to say that my most memorable trade would have to be when FallingWishes was getting out of the trading game. I asked her for a Groudon, and was pleasantly surprised to receive a Shiny one! I later tried to upload it to Pokecheck, only to find that it had a ribbon! I had inadvertently wound up with one of the few event Pokemon out there that can be shiny, completely for free!

My least memorable trade is when I traded my good buddy for a Skarmory in HeartGold, only to find that it wasn't anywhere as good as I remembered from my days playing Crystal. You win some, you lose some.

My best trade was the first one on GTS. I got Zorua and gave away Stunky. I got really happy, so I made several Zorua eggs and gave them to my friends.
About bad trades, I haven't done yet...

I got a Shiny Charizard and Tyranitar from Mayfan or Mia. I can't remember exacly who it was. I think it was Mia. Wish I could remember Mia's full user name.

Worst trade.....traded away a Shiny Metagross on GTS.....Nuff said.

My most memorable trade(s) was when I was doing a giveaway on New Years. It wasn't quite about what I was trading or what I was getting, but the fact that I was outside trading while watching fireworks was pretty cool. It's a memory that's sticks out in my mind. Well, I find every giveaway fun to experience, but the fireworks were icing to the cake.

My least memorable trade was on another forum. The Crown shiny beasts were distributed and I hunted for one... I finally thought I made a good deal, but the Shiny Suicune turned out to be a hack. I was pretty angry, haha.

Most memorable trades? Not counting RNC giving away free shinies on sundays? haha
I would say, when I traded away 2 Ditto that I captured around level 31-32 and traded them on the GTS, and got back a Feraligatr and a Drapion lvl 100 legit Pokemon :)

Worst one? I have yet to encounter a bad trade.

November 24th, 2012, 9:58 PM
Best trade was when I got a Japanese shiny Pidgetot on the GTS for a random Hypno I had lying around. Learn to be specific, person I traded with! (not to be mean, lol)

November 25th, 2012, 9:34 PM
I don't need to think, the best trade I ever got was way back when I first joined and only had 3 shiny's to start my thread with, I traded all 3 of my shiny's for and event!
My worst was when after I started my thread, I told ppl I didn't won't eggs for a trade and some one traded me an egg because they didn't read the rules.

November 26th, 2012, 12:12 AM
one time I got someone's Pikachu (with light ball) from Yellow vesion, and I gave him a level 54 Venusaur for it.

November 26th, 2012, 12:25 AM
Getting my first ever RNGed shiny/flawless Pokémon! It was traded to me by Blade and was one of the points when I started to think she wasn't so scary, so it was a good moment for me xD But that's definitely one of the only trades I actually remember haha. I still have that Pokémon saved in my PC box n.n

December 2nd, 2012, 5:45 AM
err my most treasured trade is where i raised my starter from a wee child and got it to level 100 like full on my own and then my freinds bullied me into trading it for a mewtwo level 52 and we got in the trading room and i was about to trade my most beloved pokemon and my ds power turned off , at first i was really upset cause non of them had a spare charger but when i got home and started playing again i was like THANKYOU LORD :P btw it was a typhlosion

December 4th, 2012, 6:28 PM
My least memorable would be trading a Shiny Zubat for a lvl. 96 Eevee. I didn't have all the badges at the time so I couldn't use the pokemon for awhile. :(
My most memorable trade is trading a lvl. 18 Absol for a lvl. 65 Shiny Japanese Ditto. After trading for that pokemon I had so many shinies it was ridiculous.

December 9th, 2012, 3:35 PM
my most memerable, after searching on the GTS in diamond for 2 months trying to get a palkia, i got on early in the morning to see if i could find one and then, a miracle! someone was so desperate for the spiritomb i had up for trade that they traded a palkia for it! i searched for a palkia anyway since i might get a better one and found someone that wanted an eevee for it! later they both passed the legality check!
my least memerable trade... that would have to be when i traded my legit shiny pachirisu for a shiny scolipede only to find the scolipede was severally hacked, but later i was able to trade it for a salamence so it worked out

December 25th, 2012, 1:44 PM
I think mine must have been when I first got access to WFC on my DS.
I went to the GTS and for weeks, all I did was trade on the GTS for random stuff.

I got my first event Pokémon, MT BATA Ho-oh (French Colosseum Ho-oh.) Then later, got several Aura Mew, then several Wishmaker/Channel Jirachi (I think I got a Negai Boshi Jirachi once and put it back on the GTS, thinking it was a hacked Jirachi. :P)

December 29th, 2012, 12:17 PM
Most memorable was when I got my first shiny - Magnayen the Mightyena off the GTS for a Bellsprout. He is legit, and flawless in attack and he's soooo gorgeous : D

Least memorable? Traded my flawless shiny EV'd Ninetales for a breeding request. The person who did the request COMPLETELY ripped me off, the Poke wasn't shiny or flawless or even had the right nature. Never got the Ninetails back.

January 4th, 2013, 9:56 AM
My most memorable trade might be when I was new to doing GTS, and ended up trading my lvl 25 Zorua (which I had about 3 of) for a completely legit lvl 100 shiny Charizard.
Least memorable was when I trade my lvl 92 shiny Haxorus for a Mew, which turned out to be hacked.

January 4th, 2013, 8:15 PM
I have a love hate relationship when it comes to trading.

My most memorable trade was probably when I put one of my Mudkip into the GTS and I ended up with a Shiny Mew in the end :P I'm guessing someone got it with a hack but it's still awesome to look at!

As for my worst. I put in one of my level 80 Ditto and ended up with a level 6 Gallade... Wasn't expecting that... /shot

January 4th, 2013, 8:53 PM
dunno if it counts as memorable but i just got a landorous with pokerus over the GTS, time to start EV training :D

January 20th, 2013, 10:56 PM
Back in the days when Diamond and Pearl was the game to have I met a kid looking so frustrated on his DS. He was surprised that a random guy was playing Pokemon. He was telling me he coudnt find Rock Climb so I gave him a Graveler with it but I forgot for a split second that he evolves when traded so I had to get off the bus with him to finish the trade. : ( Had no money to get back on the bus so I had to walk 12 miles home. Seeing the kid face light up out of excitement and telling me I promise to take care of it and go thru the league made the walk home worth it.

January 21st, 2013, 10:53 PM
best trade was mac's super special awesome shiny umbreon he rng'd for me. hatched on my birthday! and i love gonz0's shiny gligar in a dive ball he traded me. i had been wanting one forever, also with the move aqua tail, and i have no way to get one (this was before B2W2 btw).

worst trade ummm idk i don't like being left hanging in the trade room and that's happened with this one dude. i don't think he comes around here anymore? lmao but he never read the rules or anything and would make crap requests and ugh it just wasn't a fun experience. i'm very patient but some people are ridiculousss.

Best trade ever would have to be when I was talking with a friend and we agreed to trade our favorites to each other so I got her Sceptile and she got my Infernape. I spoke to her today after I found my Pearl version and she said she still has that Infernape.

The worst trade ever is actually five trades and I don't remember the details but I have five Hardy shiny Charmanders from different people.

February 7th, 2013, 8:55 PM
best? the one with the grovyle. and every grovyle at that.

Why is it the best? I currently have about 4 grovyle and 15 treeckos, I might have went overboard lol :p

Least memorable? I traded my Lv 56 Herdier for a Ratatta. Of course, I obviously didn't care about that Herdier, but I found out it had Giga Impact (because I don't plan these things out lol) and I was kinda mad. I got over that when I got a Lv. 65 Herdier from the same place lol.

My most memorable trade happened recently when I had put a Tepig up for trade in Black2. I was trying to fill my Pokédex, and was asking for a Crawdaunt, any level, any gender, I didn't care. 'Cause I was going to breed it with a Ditto anyway to receive a Corphish, or so I thought.
One day after my request, a trainer had traded me a Crawdaunt just as I wanted. But the Crawdaunt was level 100, had perfect IVs, a great nature and total killer moves...
I did not use that one to breed.

As for least memorable? I haven't really done any bad trades at the moment.

I think my most memorable trade was when I got an event Japanese Arceus and Regigigas from ~RNC~ back in 2009/2010, I believe. (May have been a different person though.)
I don't really have a least memorable trade, because trading for me isn't full-time; after all, it's no fun just sitting around for hours switching pieces of data between people (unless all them are special to the traders). I don't think some people of the TF2 community get that though.

May 2nd, 2013, 10:22 AM
The one that stands out in my mind was in Pokemon Diamond where I got a Palkia for a magikarp from the GTS. I'm fairly confident it was a legitimate too.....at least looking at it everything checked out.

That was an odd one.

May 10th, 2013, 4:37 AM
I had a couple of most memorable trades and least memorable trades.
Among the least memorable was when I traded my brother's shiny Mightiyena for an Eigakan Darkrai and it turned out to be hacked (good thing the Mightiyena was a clone though). Another was when I woke up 5 am for a trade and the other person did not show up.

Among the memorable trades was when I finally got a non-Rash Mystry Mew(pretty rare in the other forum I go to). But the most memorable one was when I made my biggest trade in one seating with tabor62. I woke up 6 am for that trade and it was 19 events.

May 10th, 2013, 7:49 AM
Probably most memorable was when Tabor RNG'd me a shiny flawless karrablast with an egg move. I love it =).

Most forgettable? trading random magnemite for other magnemite in GTS to level up my join avenue on white 2.

May 10th, 2013, 7:55 AM
Without any doubt, the Cubone-Machoke (technically Machamp) trade from Pokemon Yellow. It was amazing to have a Lv.16 Machamp :P

May 16th, 2013, 7:41 AM
hmmmm the trades i liked and disliked the most.......

......well they are both the same one i traded a l.v.43 sneezl for a l.v.14 blastoise

i know the blastoise was probably made by a glitch or a cheat but still it's a "rare" blastoise for a not "rare" sneezl:|

to bad my saved game got deleted>:(;-;

May 21st, 2013, 6:06 PM
Pretty much my first trade was bad but I still love it the Pokémon I trade my dragonite lv. 67 for a furret lv. 54 on silver still have it and I cloned 6 of them and beat my friend with them lol

May 30th, 2013, 10:05 AM
Most memorable?
I go back to my heart gold after a long time,and find out that someone had traded to me for who knows what pokemon I had, A shiny female french vulpix. All of those things went together so well I didn't care whatever kind of stats it had, and I STILL didn't check. XD

October 9th, 2013, 6:50 AM
Two trades from last night. Very dang nice people last night.

1. Someone Traded me a regirock for my Glaceon! Not a fair trade imo, but I am very glad that I'll be able to see Regirock in Y when I get far enough in to trade from gen 5.

2. SHINY KYUREM. FOR VIRIZION. Nuff said, but I'll keep talking. In my opinion Virizion is the hardest to catch legendary in BW, but still not annoying enough to trade something like a shiny legendary.

The only thing I don't like is that I'm afraid that 2 isn't a legit shiny. Than again, they may have just been feeling generous. Or drunk. XD

October 16th, 2013, 12:49 AM
It was probably a random kid who had no idea what he was doing traded me a Pikachu yesterday that was holding a light ball for a really crappy Pokemon of mine - probably a Bidoof or something like that.

Now I finally have a Pikachu with a light ball, and I have been trying to find one for about a year.

November 3rd, 2013, 6:57 PM
I think I put in a growlithe, level 20 or something and got a level 89 vaporeon. Someone must have REALLY wanted that growlithe, lol on heartgold

November 3rd, 2013, 7:48 PM
Met someone on another forum who needed help transferring a party he had bred to a new game. He traded me more than just his party (also wanted to keep several of the items from his other file) and told me to keep whatever I wanted that was left over from the trade. After taking his party and items back, I ended up with more than a few things, including a Yveltal. Now I've got a new phone buddy who lives halfway across the country that I can always trust with transfers, evolves, etc. Nice to know there are good people out there :).

November 4th, 2013, 7:22 PM
Most memorable would probably be when I made 90 starter Pokemon eggs on Black, randomized them in their boxes, and traded them away at Pokemon Regionals Tournament that year. I remember a bunch of the kids I traded them to running up to me all happy-like showing me which starter they got from their egg throughout the day ^^
I still have a fairly large amount of those eggs remaining, too. But they're random.

Via Wonder Trade I traded like a lvl2 Caterpie or something for a female Pichu holding a Light Ball and knew Volt Tackle. Man, that made me happy ^^

Least memorable I think I was trying to get a Deoxys via GTS but needed a Rotom for it and traded away a Regigigas for one only to discover that the Deoxys I wanted was no longer there. Thinking about these terrible mistakes I made back when I started kinda hurts >.<

November 5th, 2013, 8:55 AM
Most memorable trade in recent memory is a wonder trade I got a Tyranitar for a Fletchling that I've been cycling on the wonder trade for. I just felt really bad so I spammed all my O-Powers on that guy.

...Just a note, though, How would anybody remember a "least memorable" trade? Irony at its finest.

My most memorable trade was a wonder trade a few days ago.
I was getting rid (and still am) of my bred pokemon, mostly level 1 larvitars and scythers.
One of them, I wonder traded and what did I get back? A SHINY Larvitar. I was all like "another larvitar.." for a split second, but then I noticed it was shiny (yes, I am slow.) and I nearly fell off my chair. I too began spamming my O-Powers on the dude because I felt sorry trading my non-shiny larvitar for his :P

November 5th, 2013, 10:42 AM
I was wonder trading a bunch of Munchlax yesterday and after filling up my boxes with trade-fodder (Bidoofs, Fletchlings, Pidgies and other breeders' lvl 1s), I was sent a level 50 scyther with some pretty good stats.

My worst trade was when I traded a Yveltal I got from someone else (I already had mine all trained up so I figured someone else could use it) and got a level 1 Bidoof from some guy who had already wonder traded with me before and gave a level 1 Bidoof for one of my high-IV starters I was giving out.

Needless to say, I was upset and to this day I still seek vengeance on Caps Loch from Seattle, Washington. He and his level 1 Bidoofs will pay.

November 5th, 2013, 11:09 AM
Most : starly for mew
Least : what trade?

November 19th, 2013, 9:01 AM
My best trade occured last night!

I traded my 31/31/31/x/31/31 shiny Honedge for a shiny 31/31/x/x/31/31 Pinsir, shiny Gardevoir, and shiny Trevenant. :)

Currently in the process of breeding another Honedge XD

December 26th, 2013, 4:15 AM
Most memorable: Getting a Trubbish named H* Bag on Wonder Trade... I mean, really, people???

Least memorable: Any common Pokemon that weren't nicknamed

December 26th, 2013, 8:18 AM
Last night i got a chimchar for a rufflet in gts. I bred the chimchar to get a bunch of other starters. That was a good trade.
