With Pokemon X and Y coming out this year, we traders find ourselves facing a new dilemma, how are we going to handle trading in the new Generation 6 games while we wait for the 3DS encryption to be cracked.

There are a number of things that will change because of our current reliance on Action Replay and fake GTS services like Pokecheck.

-No way to clone Pokemon
-No way to speed up breeding
-No way to RNG
-No way to hack check Pokemon
-No way to export PKM files
-No way to quickly display bred Pokemon to a customer
-No way to effectively and quickly check IVs/EVs

This is just a short list of things that we lose in the transition, but their effect on trading will be drastic.

So, will you make the move to 6th gen with your shop, or will you wait? What other issues do you see for us in the near future with the switch? And how do you think you will change the way your shop operates, if you do make the switch?

Thankfully for me, I don't RNG, so I don't have to worry about that. Hopefully, they continue to make breeding more effective. I do plan on making the move as early as possible. Unfortunately, checking the IVs of Pokemon I breed will not be an easy task, and I may have to alter my system for breeding in 6th gen in order to reflect this. My customers will have to trust me a bit more, since I can't show them with Pokecheck just what IVs the Pokemon I bred received. I will likely have to put off Event trading in 6th gen until we get a way to clone Pokemon. Unfortunately, this also means I won't be able to offer any release events, or any events in Gen 6 until we do get a cloning method.
