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.

        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)

          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.

            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

                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.

                  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

                    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)

                      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.

                        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.

                          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

                              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.

                              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.

                              some princes don't become kings.

                                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.

                                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.
                                    oh hey is this a placeholder
