「Trade Corner Rules」
Follow Pokécommunity Global Rules

Do not highjack trades; when posting on a thread with the intent of trading, you may only make offers and trade with the thread owner.
Ask a Trade Corner Moderator to close your thread when it is not needed anymore, as you can't close threads yourself.

Hacked Pokémon are prohibited

Hacked and illegal Pokémon are prohibited from being traded here.
A hack is any Pokémon not able to naturally exist within the game or any Pokémon edited or created by a cheating device. Clones are not considered hacked because the Pokémon isn't altered in any way, simply copied.
It is your responsability to hack check your Pokémon before offering them for trade, especially if they are rare, or if you got them from untrustworthy sources like GTS, Wonder Trade, or passerby trades.
Hacked Items are allowed as long as they are released.
No Pokémon from ROM, emulators, or unofficial game copies can be traded here.
No Shiny Mew are allowed. Every Shiny Celebi must be hack-checked on our thread before being traded. Here's the reason why.

Cloning services are not allowed

You are not allowed to ask or offer cloning services. You can request cloning services or apply to be an official cloner in this thread only.

Respect Pokémon's distribution rights

Intentionally disregarding distribution rights of an original trainer's Pokémon will result in an infraction. You must ask a Pokémon's Original Trainer's permission before using their Pokémon in a Giveaway. Respect user's guidelines in their trade threads.

「Trade Corner Glossary」
Aprimons: A Pokémon inside a Apricorn Pokéball. Those can be found in HGSS, and in Gen 7. They are Moon Ball, Friend Ball, Love Ball, Fast Ball, Level Ball, Heavy Ball and Lure Ball.

AR: Action Replay - cheating tool 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.

Breedjects: Unwanted/non-perfect Pokémon hatched while breeding a specific Pokémon

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.

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

DCC: Daily Chit Chat

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.

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.

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, like Giveaways. 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).

Genned Pokémon: Pokémon that have been created or edited with a cheating tool. 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 is usually rarer. Pokémon from VC Games will always have their HA when transfered.

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. 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.

Perfect IVs: Used when all of a Pokémon's IVs are all either/a mix of 0, 30 or 31.
