Quick Trades Rules
About this forum
This forum is for quick trades and giveaways. If you're wanting to open a shop or looking for services, Trade Shops is the place to go.

Follow PokéCommunity Rules.
The "4 word/25 character" rule does not apply in Quick Trades. You may double post to bump your thread if it has been at least three days since the last post. Do not highjack threads - only make offers with the thread owner.

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. Pokémon that has been edited or created with the use of cheating devices or software such as PKHeX or Powersaves are prohibited. 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

There will be one quick trade thread per category per person.
Each person gets one quick trade thread per category and one giveaway thread to offer all Pokémon. If you submit a new thread with the same category your old one will be closed. Contact a Trade Corner Moderator if you need to close your old thread in order to make a new thread, or merge/delete posts to aid your layout.

Cloning Services are not allowed in Quick Trades
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 good, reputable cloners.

Regarding giveaways...
Unless you have explicit permission from the Pokémon's owner/OT, do not give away another person's Pokémon.
Please do not set up a contest as a form of distribution, as they tend to generate spam.
Given away Pokémon are free, not for the "best offer".
You may give away Pokémon within a separate Giveaway thread. Use the Giveaway prefix for your thread.

Respect all distribution rights
Intentionally disregarding distribution rights of an original trainer's Pokémon will result in an infraction.

Regarding Bumping...
You are allowed to bump your thread once after 3 days has passed. You can also delete your last post and post again to bump it in less than a week. Do not post in any threads that haven't been bumped in over 2 weeks. If you are owner, you are allowed to make a new thread after asking a moderator to close the old thread. For Trade Shops, refer to the Trade Shop rules concerning bumping.

To use QTTs or make a thread
The Quick Trade Thread (QTT) are for people looking for Generic Pokémon exchanges (Looking for some eggs, Looking for someone to help evolve my Pokémon, etc.) However, you will need to create your own thread in more specific cases like "offering IV bred Pokémon, looking for shiny Pokémon etc.) Unlike Trade Shops, there will not be a minimum requirement here.

On File Trading...
You are allowed to trade a .pkm file for another .pkm file. However, the file being traded must be of a Pokémon that you have obtained yourself via ingame methods, events, or from trading with others. Distribution of public Pokémon from Pokecheck is prohibited.

Only trade ingame stuff
Do not trade Pokémon, items, or other ingame articles for money or merchandise (e.g. video games, trading cards, collectibles, etc.) Keep trading within the actual Pokémon games.

Your thread may be deleted early
If someone does post in your thread but you do not respond within a week, it will be deleted in the assumption that you've abandoned or forgotten about it. This will be done regardless of when you were last online. If you would like to revive it instead, then contact a Trade Corner Moderator and we'll take care of it for you.

Trade Corner's Glossary

Have you ever wandered into a shop or the Daily Chit Chat, saw something someone said, and went “What the heck does that mean?” Well look no further! We’ve compiled a list of commonly used terms in Trade and their definitions just for you! (And everyone else o3 o)

Aprimons: Coined by a PC member! (We're the best yup) Basically just a Pokémon in an Apricorn Ball, special Balls exclusive to HeartGold and SoulSilver. Well, you can get them in GSC as well, but you can't trade those Pokémon into Gen III and beyond anyways. A list of them can be found here on Bulbapedia.

AR: Action Replay - p If you don't like them make sure to read rules of shops, they're required to list out what codes they use if they do use them. (Don't worry, we don't allow certain cheats like "Make all wild Pokémon shiny, etc.)

B: Pokémon Black (Version)

B2: Pokemon Black (Version) 2

Breeding RNG: A form of RNG Abuse done with eggs. You can get the IV spread/Gender/Ability you need, up to 5 or 6 IVs depending on how much time you want to take. This also works with Shininess! More information on what it is and how to do it can be found here, for Gen VI. Note that it is possible in Gen VII as well.

Breedjects: Unperfect Pokémon hatched while breeding a specific Pokémon

CMT: Check my thread - Normally used when someone shows interested in Pokémon being offered and that person owns a shop or a quick trade post they use for reference. If you use this remember to link that post!

CSS: Cascading Style Sheets - A particular sheet style language that can be used on PokéCommunity to pretty up your shop or post. A simple guide with some examples for it can be found here.

DCC: Daily Chit Chat - Trade Corner's DCC can be found here!

Egg moves: Moves a Pokémon can only learn from breeding with a compatible male with the move or with a mother that already has the move. More information can be found here (Gen V) and here (Gen VI)

EV(s): Effort Value(s) - They determine how much of an extra stat boost your Pokémon gains. No Pokémon can go over 510 EVs in total over all 6 stats and only can gain 252 in any one stat. Every 4 EVs equal an extra stat point in that particular stat. More information can be found here (Gen IV), here (Gen V), and here (Gen VI).

FC: Friend Code - A string of 12 digits that you'll need to trade with other people over Wi-Fi. Both traders need to add each other's FC to trade together.

Filler: A random Pokémon that you don't want. Usually used in one way trades, reasons why can depend. (For example a Bidoof for a Shiny Ho-Oh)

Flawless IVs: Normally used to refer to a Pokémon with 6 (perfect) IVs, typically with the spread 31/31/31/31/31/31.

Sometimes is substituted in place of "Perfect", refer below for the exact meaning.

Fodder: Sometimes referred to as "Trade Fodder". Long story short, refer above to "Filler".

Gen: Generation - Usually followed by I (one), II (two), III (three), IV (four), V (five), VI (six), or VII (seven). III, IV, V, and VI are the more commonly used ones in TC. Don't know what "TC" means? Scroll down!

Genned Pokémon: Pokémon that have been created or edited with the Pokémon editing program PokéGen. Pokémon obtained in this method are considered hacked and are not allowed to be traded here.

HA: Hidden Ability - The third alternate ability of a Pokémon that cannot be obtained by breeding parents that do not have the Hidden Ability in the first place. These abilities can only be legally possible in Gen V and later. Extra information can be found here (Gen V) and here (Gen VI). Some HAs are not available, refer to these lists here on Serebii and here (Gen VII). Please keep in mind that some abilities may have been changed in later Gen. An example is the Venipede line's HA being Quick Feet in Gen V, but being Speed Boost in Gen VI.

Hacked Pokémon: Pokémon that either do not fit within the games programmed parameters for one reason or another or were created using cheat devices and editing programs. More information for hacks can be found here (Gen IV & V). Read "Legal" and "Legit" below for further reference within the glossary.

IGN: In-Game Name - Simply put, the name of your trainer in your Pokémon game.

IV(s): Individual Value(s) - They are static (never changing) values. One is assigned to each Pokémon's stats and it determines the amount of growth that particular stat will have. More information can be found here (Gen V) and here (Gen VI). These are also breeding guides for their respective generations and you may find it useful.

Legal: Pokémon able to naturally exist within the game. It does not mean it isn't hacked.

Legit: Pokémon who are legal and were created through in-game means, such as breeding, catching, events, and etc. Non-legit Pokémon include Pokémon created, edited, or manipulated with Action Replay, Pokegen, and/or Pokesav. Additional information can be found above in the "Hacked Pokémon" definition links. The following are not considered hacked and are allowed to be traded here if you indicate what you did:

— Cloned Pokémon
— Pokémon hatched by Fast Egg Hatch code
— Pokémon caught by 100% Capture Rate code
— Pokémon raised with boosted Experience points code
— Pokémon raised with infinite Rare Candy, vitamins, EV wings codes
— Pokémon legitimately obtained but with aid of flashcart/emulator (including backing up save files)
— Using codes to obtain infinite legal items
— Using max Battle Points code to tutor Pokémon
— Using Rebattle codes
— Using IV/EV Check codes to check a Pokémon's stats

NN: Nicknamed

ORAS: Pokémon Omega Ruby / Alpha Sapphire

OT: Original Trainer - If you've looked at the status screen of a Pokémon you'll notice that it will have a trainer's name on it. Whether or not it's your name, it indicates who caught or hatched it originally.

PC: PokéCommunity - The most commonly form of this abbreviation here for PC.

Of course it can also mean Pokémon Center or the PC you store Pokémon in-game too, just keep that in mind and watch for how it's used ;)

Pentagon: You may have noticed a little blue pentagon on your Pokémon's status screen. This indicates that this particular Pokémon was either bred, caught, or obtained in an event in a Gen VI game (X/Y & ORAS). However this is not a 100% way to prove a Pokémon is not hacked as people have found ways to hack it onto a Pokémon from previous generations in addition to the release of Powersaves 3DS.

This is referred to as "Kalos Native (caught or bred)" by the official VGC.

Perfect IVs: Normally used to refer to Pokémon that have 5 perfect IVs that make up the correct IV spread needed for a particular competitive spread. The four most commonly traded spreads being 31/x/31/31/31/31, 31/x/31/31/31/0, 31/31/31/x/31/31, and 31/31/31/x/31/0. Of course, there are always different ones that are not as commonly seen :)

However, this term does have a secondary meaning as it can also simply indicate the amount of IVs the Pokémon has that are 31. (3 perfect IVs, 1 perfect IV, etc.)

PKRS: Pokérus - Maybe you've received a Pokémon with this on their status screen. Or maybe your Pokémon obtained it. Or maybe you just saw it while idly scrolling through the forums. Don't panic! It does not mean your Pokémon is hacked! It is something a Pokémon can catch normally in-game, a "disease" of sorts. Before you panic again, just know that it is actually beneficial to your Pokémon! It doubles the amount of EVs your Pokémon gains while battling, and yes, that's twice. I don't want to get too lengthy so in depth information can be found here at Bulbapedia. If you don't know what an "EV" is, scroll up in this very glossary :)

PM: Private Message - A form of communication here on PokéCommunity. Click on their username or go to their profile to send them one!

Powersaves: Commonly mistaken as an Action Replay cheat device for 3DS games. This is not the case despite the words being present on the packaging as it seems to be part of some sort of sub-series under that name. This is more of a save editor and doesn't allow input of codes such as "100x EXP" and stuff like that. This however does allow you to fiddle with your Bag and the like in certain ways and also allows you to back up saves which for some people, can be quite convenient.

QTs: [Quick Trades forum]

QTT: Quick Trade Thread - They're all found in the Quick Trades forum.

Rareballs: Includes Apricorn Pokéballs, Beast Balls, Dream Balls, Safari Balls, and Sport Balls

RNG: Random Number Generator - It's just the way the game determines what Pokémon shows up when wild, or the stats of an egg, or the nature of wild Pokémon, etc etc.

RNG Abuse: RNG mechanic abuse to manipulate which stats a Pokémon will have (Nature, IV, Shininess, etc). Possible in Gen VII with Static Encounters (Tapus), Gift Pokémon (Type:Null), and Eggs. We do not have a guide yet, be patient!

SID: Secret ID - Similar to the Trainer ID in that it is also is comprised of 5 digits, but this one is hidden. This is what can differentiate you from someone else in the event you find someone else with the exact same TID apart from the trainer name. In addition this set of numbers also helps to determine whether or not a Pokémon is shiny when you encounter or hatch it.

Shopballs: Includes Dive, Dusk, Heal, Quick, Luxury, Net, Premier, Repeat, Timer Pokéballs

SuMo: Pokémon Sun / Moon

SV(s): Shiny Value(s) - Often seen as PID (Pokémon Shiny Value), TSV (Trainer Shiny Value) and ESV (Egg Shiny Value). In-depth explanation can be found here. Keep in mind; this is complicated. here.

TID: Trainer ID - A string of 5 digits (Gen VI and lower) or 6 digits (Gen VII) that acts like an ID number of sorts. Helpful in setting you apart from other people if you have the same or very similar trainer names.

TC: [Trade Corner forum]

TR: [Trader Reviews forum]

TS: [Trade Shops forum]

USUM: Ultra Sun & Ultra Moon Pokémon games

UT: Untouched - No Experience, no Pokérus, no extra ribbons, no changes to moveset/stats/EVs/condition, no nickname, etc. Basically as if the Pokémon was freshly caught, hatched, or obtained from an event.

VM: Visitor Message - A form of communication here on PokéCommunity. Go to the person's profile page to leave them one!

W: Pokémon White (Version)

W2: Pokémon White (Version) 2

TSV Registry
Here you can find a list of active traders' Trainer Shiny Value (TSV).
TSV are mostly used in TSV breeding - in short, when an Egg's Shiny Value (ESV) matches the Trainer's Shiny Value, the hatched Egg will be Shiny!

You can find a tutorial here on how to check your TSV.











If you want your Trainer's Shiny Value added, contact Soapyyy
