    I usually trade pokemon that I have doubles to get different kinds, but I get end up getting fletchling or other lower leveled pokemon. I only wonder trade once in awhile. I like going to the GTS.

    I don't understand why all of you are upset over getting Flabebes literally everytime I run into them in the wild I catch it they are just so so so so so so cute :X

    I do feel guilty sometimes, but I tend to give out Pokemon that aren't common (Flabebe or Bunnelby has never been traded off from me). I usually give out hatched charmanders and a couple of times I sent out Lampents and Litleos, but now I'm basically giving out free modest charmanders to a bunch of silly people.

      So.....I think I have the most reason to feel bad after trading away some buizel's I hatched.

      I actually got a Japanese (U.S here btw) Lvl. 1 Eevee....with pokerus.

      I don't feel too guilty though, since all were Iv bred with 31 attack with lonely nature, but still. :C

        Am I the only one who found an Eevee on his first Route 10 encounter? There was no way I was letting that thing get away.

        Sadly, mine is male, but you've given me an excellent idea. I'm going to go search for a female.

        I have always declined Wonder Trades, but I keep thinking I might see something that is Y-exclusive, and perhaps even a bred starter, so it might be worthwhile to have something in reserve for this purpose.

          Not really. I like Wonder Trade! You never know what you are gonna get. I trade doubles or extras from breeding. If I can't get something on the GTS, I rather do this than release the Pokemon. Maybe someone else can use it, ya never know.

          Some people give their Pokemon obnoxious names though. I once got a Miltank named after a porn site. :|

            I have over 30 hours logged Wonder Trading. It is my new addiction. I've gotten a few trade to evolve Pokemon which was good for my Dex. I actually have more foreign Pokemon than I do American. I can't seem to get a foreign Ditto so I've kept ALL foreign Pokemon including Fletchling and Bunnelby. I can Masudo with those. I'm even breeding Japanese with French for babies with Egg Moves lol.

            One trade I got a Bunnelby named "YOU FKN BLOW" and I thought it was hilarious. I was laughing for a good five minutes.

            I first Wonder Trade I got a French Scatterbug which I was happy to get so I could evolve it for the final form. I wish more people traded Scatterbug, collecting all is proving to be a problem. All in all though I've gotten some really good stuff. I have two Japanese Fennekin, a Japanese Venusaur, German Torchic. A Japanese Eevee with it's Hidden Ability.

            I haven't gotten any Pokerus. I haven't seen any Chespin or it's line, nor any of the Squirtle line. I've gotten a few X version exclusives, a few Y exclusives that I've sent right back out because I have Y. I'm hoping to one day get a Shiny or a Legend. I already know what I'm breeding when Pokebank is released. It will be epic and everybody will want to keep my OT Pokemon.

            All in all no guilt, it's just like walking around in the grass, most stuff you see will be crap but every once in awhile it is all worth it. Happy trading!!

              I'm sending all my hatched Eevee's into the Wondertrade, hoping people will notice their Bold Nature and will evolve them into a Vaporeon. I HOPE THEY DON'T RELEASE THEM.

                So my first three battles on Route 12 this morning:
                - Pinsir
                - Miltank
                - Pinsir

                Hmm, I thought Pinsir was labeled as "Very Rare". If I keep seeing them, I will have to hit up Wonder Trade and spam them around...

                For now, off to the GTS to try to acquire a Heracross.

                  Sometimes I feel guilty if I get a Pokémon that is almost too good. I once got a level 54 Sylveon (I don't remember what I traded but I know it wasn't something bad) and I couldn't help but feel bad because someone obviously spent a lot of time training that thing. I still worry if they put it up for trade accidentally. :\

                    i do feel a little guilty trading away the breeding failures...but i usually give em an item like a moon stone or pp up to make up for it.

                      The only stuff I keep are foreign Pokemon, X exclusives I don't have to breed and Pokemon with Hidden Abilities. Once I get a foreign Pokemon with a Hidden ability or foreign X exclusive I trade the American away. The highest level I've gotten was a 78. It was quickly traded away. Also any Pokemon I used on my team were Wonder Traded. The only Pokemon I own with my OT are both of my starters and my revived fossil. So I can say people trade higher levels without it being a mistake.

                      Everything I hatch is Wonder Traded until I get a Shiny or flawless with the correct Nature.

                        It hit like a brick. I don't feel guilty for what I get but dammit this is an exception.
                        I hope you realize that the Fennekin was Shauna the NPC's. You get the starter yours is super effective against when you beat the elite 4. The person who traded must of had a Greninja.

                        I'm thinking that when/if I ever get a 3Ds and ethier x or y I will WonderTrade fully evolve version exclusives, and fully evolved starters in hopes to make people happy.^^ and if I get a shiny from the wild that I don't want (tho id behappy to find one as Iit would be my first) I would wonder trade it and hope to make someone happy ^^

                          Speaking of Pokémon that are "yours", don't forget the Lucario with Lucarionite and Lapras immediately after that are both registered to your name. If you have either. I had already evolved a Lucarios without knowing I would be getting one later in the game.

                          Meanwhile, I got a Froakie through Wonder Trade. From Japan. Beauty. I now know I'm getting Chespin later, too, so I may wait until then for that.

                              I decided to wonder trade my Charmander(as I didn't want it); I laughed so hard when I got a weedle for it! Later, though, when I traded som random Pokémon away, I actually got a lvl. 1 Charmander. Kind of funny.

                              I'm planning on breeding Eevees, evolving them and trade them away. I haven't gotten that far into the game yet though. I want to get fly and some more stones before I start. (But I did manage to catch a wild female Eevee; though, it took quite some time)

                                I caught two female Eevees. I wanted Sylveon to be a female, without question. Luckily for me, at Lv.19 they still know Baby-Doll Eyes, which allowed me to double-heart and evolve immediately at Lv.20 into a female Sylveon.

                                It's happened to me, too. All I do is ship it right back out. Sooner or later something nice will arrive. I received three East(?) Kalos Pokémon (red marked region) through Wonder Trade; one was at Lv.46, well above my party. I'm waiting until my team gets to that level before I begin to use that Rhyhorn. I may catch another to breed and then send some out through Wonder Trade. Meanwhile, I'm curious that Route 13 is considered the third region; already caught a Dugtrio and Trapinch, but my first Gible was OHKOed and the second killed itself with recoil after I False Swiped it.

                                  I think you must have had a bad experience. Somehow. If you don't like what you get then Wonder Trade it away. I've gotten so many amazing Pokemon from Wonder Trade it's ridiculous. It's far better than the GTS. I've run out of Pokemon to Wonder Trade multiple times, and that's with Wonder Trading away the Pokemon I don't want to keep.

                                      I just trade over 100 Magikarps with "Youmadbro" as name. I feel so awesome.
                                      ...And then someone trade me a stunfisk with the name "fawkyou" as if they knew I was doing those random pranks. Karma.

                                          My first and only wonder trade was a rhyhorn for a japanese Ditto.

                                          I felt so bad about it, because i knew this guy was just good guy spamming dittos for people to MM with.

                                          I don't want to do it agian, because if someone shoots me a aggron or something awesome like that i'll curl up and think im a terrible person.

                                            I'm doing the same thing with Lapras. Did you receive a Lapras under the OT of Silver Fox? Because I received a Froakie and that made my night :3
                                            Also received two Scatterbugs. That made me a little disappointed until I checked one and it had pokérus.

                                              No but i wish! ;-; My froakies are under the OT John.....so even if you got one as the OT who knows if it was mine haha, i'd have to check my ID. I always put in my actual name without thinking the first time (excitement), normally for games i use anubis, but alas, to late to restart now =P

                                              When I first tried the Wonder Trade, I had no idea how it worked so I sent out a random level three Pokemon out just to check.

                                              That's when I realized I could randomly gift nice Pokemon to random people so sometimes I'd take some time to breed some good Pokemon to give out. I don't mind getting trash Pokemon, since I like collecting IDs for the lotto. hehe

                                              But sometimes I feel guilty too because I keep thinking, "What if they don't need this Pokemon?"
