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
You may double post to bump your thread if it has been at least 3 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. Shiny Mew are considered hacks and are not allowed to be traded here. For a complete list of commonly found hacks, click here

Ask a TC Moderator for help
Ask a Moderator to close your thread when it's done - you cannot close threads yourself. Do NOT mini-mod. If you see a rule-breaking post, use the report button.

Cloning Services are not allowed
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, or to apply to be an Official Cloner.

Regarding Giveaways
Unless you have explicit permission from the Pokémon's owner/OT, do not give away another person's Pokémon. Do not set up a contest as a form of distribution, as they tend to generate spam. Given away Pokémon are free, do not use that tag if your Pokémon aren't to give.

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. After that, delete your last post and post again to bump it if less than 2 weeks have passed. Do not post in any threads that haven't been bumped in over 2 weeks. If you didn't bump your own thread in 2 weeks, it will be closed. You are allowed to make a new thread after asking a moderator to close the old thread, if it's still opened. For Trade Shops, refer to the Trade Shop rules concerning bumping.

Your thread may be closed early
If someone posts in your thread but you do not respond within a week, it will be closed 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 re-open it, then contact a Trade Corner Moderator and we'll take care of it for you.

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

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.

The Quick Trade Threads

Which Quick Trade Category to Use
Unsure of which Quick Trade Category to use? Then read the description below of each Category, and if what you're trading for fits in that Category, then you can use in that Category.

This Category is for evolution tradebacks, Pokédex completion, Hidden Ability Pokémon, any general Pokémon, etc. Basically, if none of the other Categories are what you want, then use the General Category. You can also head over the General Quick Trade Thread.

This Category is for traders looking for or offering Shiny Pokémon.

This Category is for traders looking for or offering Event Pokémon.

This Category is only for giving away Pokémon. Refer to the Giveaway rules.

This Category is only for trading items that are in the game. No unreleased items can be traded.

This Category is only for trading Pokémon, Shinies, Events, or items in GEN VI games (Y&X and ORAS). Use this when trading in Gen VI no matter what, to avoid confusion.

Trade Corner's Glossary
Here's a list of commonly used terms and their definitions!

Aprimons: Coined by a PC member! (We're the best) A Pokémon inside a Apricorn Pokéball. Those can be found in HGSS, and in SuMo. A list of them can be found here on Bulbapedia.

AR: Action Replay - Powersaves for older consoles

BW: Pokémon Black & White

B2W2: Pokemon Black 2 & White 2

BR: Battle Ready. Lv. 50 or Lv. 100 Pokémon, fully EV Trained / Hyper Trained.

Breeding RNG: A form of RNG Abuse done with eggs. 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!

Cross: The little blue Cross on some Pokémon's status screen. This indicates that this particular Pokémon was either bred, caught, or obtained in an event in a Gen VII game (SuMo).

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

DCC: Daily Chit Chat - Trade Corner's DCC

EM: Egg Moves - A Pokémon can only learn those 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 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 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. Also used: Fodder, Junkmon

Flawless: 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". Also used: Filler, Junkmon

Gen: Generation - Usually followed by I (one), II (two), III (three), IV (four), V (five), VI (six), or VII (seven). VI and VII are the more commonly used ones in Trade Corner.

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. 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). Pokémon from VC Games will always have their HA when transfered.

Hacked Pokémon: Pokémon that either do not fit within the games programmed parameters for one reason or another, or were created using cheat devices or editing programs. Read our Gen VII Hack-Checking guide. See "Legal" and "Legit" below for further reference within the glossary.

HGSS: Heart Gold / Soul Silver Pokémon Games

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

Illegal: Not naturally able to exist whitin the games. These are prohibited from trading here - even if the Pokémon is legit. Illegal but Legit Pokémon are usually bred from a hacked parent with an illegal combinasion, such as Beast Ball Rowlet.

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 VI). Spreads are usually written like this: x/31/31/x/30/0 and are associated with the IV stat this way: HP/ATK/DEF/SP.ATK/SP.DEF/SPD

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

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, Powersaves, Pokegen, PKHeX, etc. Additional information can be found above in the "Hacked Pokémon" definition, the hack-checking guide link. See the Trade Corner Rules above for which codes are allowed.

NFT: Not for trade. Showcased Pokémon, usually to keep track of their own stock, or to discourage other traders to offer the same Pokémon.

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: The little blue Pentagon on some 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).

Perfect IVs: Normally used to refer to Pokémon that have 5 or 6 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, such as 31/0/31/31/31/0
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 - It is something a Pokémon can catch normally in-game, a "disease" of sorts. It is actually beneficial to your Pokémon, as it doubles the amount of EVs your Pokémon gains while battling. Check it on Bulbapedia.

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!

RTO: Rare Trade Only. Used for uncommon/rarer events and it describes how much the person values the event. It also helps to make the person get fair trades. (Credits to Haileo)

SID: Secret ID - Similar to the Trainer ID, 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. In addition, this set of numbers also helps to determine your SV.

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

SuMo: Pokémon Sun & Moon games. Also used: SM

SV: 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.

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.

VC: Virtual Console - Used for Red, Blue, Green and Yellow re-releases, as well as the upcoming Gold & Silver re-releases.

VRTO: Very Rare Trade Only. Same thing, just used for much rarer events, and in some cases, this is the person's way of saying NFT. (Credits to Haileo)

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