    It looks like you got your wish for your birthday, mia. I hope to see your friend code for B2W2 shortly. We need to figure out a way to keep this thread and the RNG thread alive. So... question time!

    Do you usually trade for mons or just give out gifts to people that deserve them?

    I've collected most of the dex and then some more... multiple times? Haha. I like trading Pokemon with friends. I like having a box+ full of special Pokemon (I always have boxes named favorite, lovely, or sweet!). If I'm offered Pokemon with an unfamiliar OT (or the Pokemon is a duplicate or uninteresting to me in general), I likely don't feel like trading...

    This makes me just start giving away Pokemon to deserving people (who have manners). Of course, I can't deal with this with timezones and slowbro posts. Just get on the chatroom and I may be in the giving mood, duh.

    Much like Blade I have every Pokemon in existence in my possession so I like to give out special Pokemon in the rare occasions I do actually trade. I also like helping polite people out when they're desperate for a Pokemon!

        I give gifts to people that deserve them... and don't deserve them :p I've given away shinies I didn't want anymore to random SPP Wi-Fi'ers, battlers to friends in need... that stuff. I don't like keeping Pokemon I don't use, so if I DO have anything nowadays, it's not for trade. It's for my own use.

        Mac, in my defense, you're not the only one to give me the exact fatkiss. I got one from Blade with the same stats and all. :D

        Only reason I leech is cuz I can't RNG still. But hey, sometimes I still breed nice things like that Ludicolo. :D
        I love Ludi.

          Since I can get most of the things I want by myself I love giving out free Pokemon to people that can't.
          My mons are pretty much obsolete now. xD

            I'd like to propose a new discussion topic, if that's alright. And I think almost everyone here can relate to it.

            What's your favorite RNG?

            Mine is my Scizor. I RNG'd her shininess, nature, and ability, and that's it (Gen 4). Her IVs came out to be 31/31/31/(26)/30/31 all on their own. So that was pretty cool!
            Close second is Starmie. Same story with Scizor, except it was my first flawless (hex flawless at that) breed ever.

              I'm very new to these forums and also very new to Pokemon trading. I've never really played this games as anything more than a casual romp catching what is available and finishing the elite four and then shelving the game.

              I'm starting to learn about the rest of these games that I've never really understood (Such as RNG and EV's and IV's and the GTS, ect)

              I've looked into this Pokecheck.org thing, and I have some questions. I'd like to preface this with an apology in case this isn't the right place to be discussing it, or if using that tool is frowned upon here, but here are my questions.

              If I upload a number of my own Pokemon from my Pokemon Black game, and then I delete the save file, and then gather them all back onto my new save, will they still have my personal trainer ID, or will they at that point be pokemon obtained from another trainer, and therefore level faster and disobey me if I'm not in possession of certain badges? (In other words, does my cartridge retain my trainer ID after a restarted save file, or is a new Trainer ID created when I do that?)

              Also, if I were to use pokecheck.org to obtain other pokemon that I did NOT catch myself, and were uploaded by other players, is there a simple way to ensure that I'm getting real legal pokemon, and not pokemon created by hacking?

                The best you can do with Pokecheck is to check if the Pokemon are legal by using the legality analysis. And each time you start a new game, a new trainer ID is create so Pokemon with your previous trainer ID will be treated as non-native Pokemon.

                This..but mostly because trading over wifi is annoying. I'd still happily file trade, but it's not likely anyone needs anything anymore. ;P

                  Odd question for a moderator or someone knowledgeable perhaps.

                  I have a goal of completing my entire Black Pokédex with every single Pokémon from every generation, thus giving me every Pokémon for breeding. I already have all 143 breedable Pokémon registered (or will once I level up the recently traded to me starters) in the Unova region, and have undertaken this new challenge in light of the accomplishment. As a result, someday, I will have every single breedable Pokémon in the game.

                  When I go to start a Trade Shop someday, do I have to come out and list 20 specific Pokémon for trade? Or would it be sufficient to say I can breed any Pokémon that anyone could want, or provide any Egg move that a bred Pokémon can learn...perhaps list a few samples to start off the store...or do I have to actually have 20 available to be traded at that point before a thread can be started?

                  I will be trying to carry this into Black 2/White 2 as well since trading can take place back and forth between the originals and sequels. If nothing else, I may keep B/W as my Trade Shop and get some help moving anything not in Unova's sequel over to there. Eventually. Maybe I'll just buy White and use a second DS.

                  If a mod. could answer this Trade Shop thread question, I'd appreciate it.

                  Trade staff will approve your thread if you kick start your thread with a list of at least 20 unique species of Pokemon. After you type out these 20, you can go ahead and mention that you can breed just about anything else if asked. These 20 species don't necessarily need to be "ready to go" - you can definitely list the species and make the babies on request. The more species you list, the more customers you'll attract. If you list out level, nature, attacks, etc, it also helps customers.

                  We wouldn't approve a shop if the owner ONLY stated "I can breed any Pokémon that anyone could want." It looks like no effort was put in the shop. It really makes us believe that the owner is trading hacked Pokemon or isn't going to stick around for more than one day.

                  Hope this helps. :D

                    Hmm, let's see...here for more than one day, check...have all of the items that guarantee an EV stat passdown, check...no hacking, check...yup, I think that's covered. It would be hard for me to pick just 20 to list, as I could literally breed everything once I meet my goal (I'm even getting two Gen. III games to help fill in the gaps including some legendaries, I just have to figure out how to get Jirachi and Deoxys to fully cover the generation, I believe, and already have Mew and Gen. II's Celebi). Since it might make more sense, I would probably instead list everything that's breedable.

                    That will take a while. LMAO

                    I'm offering some free BPs/CPs in my thread if anyone is interested. Need something to do.
                    Linky in my sig.

                    I'm doing more free BP/CP this weekend guys. ;)

                    Spoiler:
                    Notice
                    I will be offering 6 free breeding/capture requests for 5th gen this weekend.
                    08/17/12 - 08/19/12
                    6 SPOTS OPEN
                    The rules for this weekend are a bit different.

                    • You can ask for anything breedable/catchable (not including legends) in 5th gen only.
                    • The 'If I have it, I won't do it.' rule does not apply here.
                    • However, if I feel the request is a waste of time I can and I will reject it.
                    • All other thread rules apply. One per person.
                    • Fill out the form completely.
                    • You can start requesting now and I will put it on the first post.

                    Enjoy! ~

                    Check thread for other details/forms.
