    Alright, have a questions for all you traders, shop owners and quick traders alike.

    What do you gain from trading? And by gain, I mean what are your goals?

    Do you trade so that you can create teams to fight with?
    In order to collect, for you enjoy looking at all of these awesome Pokemon?
    To help others who are after Pokemon?
    How about to simply just make friends/acquaintances?
    Or is it a combination of the above?

    Just me being curious. I for one do it in order to build competitive teams, making friends hopefully is just an added bonus for me.

      When I traded, I just traded to trade really. Probably why I don't do it anymore... it got boring. :(

      I trade to help others out who cannot otherwise obtain the Pokemon they need. I enjoy being able to give someone the exact Pokemon they need for their team or to complete their Pokedex. My goal is to RNG the entire dex, although this will take a very long time so I do requests to both have something to RNG and to help someone else out.

      I myself trade to increase the size of my collection and to help other people complete their collections. Of course on the side I do RNG breeding requests and help people with Pokedex entries. I have met a lot of my PC friends through TC and trading. (Best place on PC by the way)

      I don't battle, but I do breed competitive Pokemon for other people (come by my place when I reopen requests > 3<)

        So this is a different shiny giveaway than last time, by a different person. This didn't say on the giveaway if they were hacks or not so I asked first. The person said "they're hacks, but they're still legit", & said that game recognizes them as legit. So anybody care to enlighten me on what this might mean?

        Pokemon cannot be hacked and legit at the same time. However they can be hacked and legal instead. Legal means it passes all possible hack checks and is not recognized as a hack by the games, Pokecheck, etc. However, legit means it was actually caught or obtained in game without the help of an Action Replay or an editing program. So legal or not, they are still hacks and cannot be traded here on PokeCommunity.

        I trade because when I was most desperate for something I needed, someone here in TC was here to help me. I really appreciated that and I wanted to help people in that same way. It's why my shop is more focused on breeding than anything else. I get a sort of satisfaction out of knowing that I helped someone get something they either don't know how or just don't have time to breed, and knowing that they are happy because of what I do is one of the greatest feelings in the world.

          I was able to get a decent deal on the GTS today. Yep, the GTS. I've been looking for a DW Porygon for a while now with no luck so i thought i would settle for a normal one. Anyway, i found one on the GTS and all they were asking for was a Steelix! So i traded one of the three steelix i had and was happy to find out that it was a DW Porygon! Sorry, but i had to share. Anyone else find something cool on the GTS for a reasonable price?

            Were you hoping to get lucky and score a DW Porygon then? Either that or you sure love your Porygon.

                I never ever used the GTS, haha. I only got into WiFi trading because of PC anyway.

                PS: Congrats on your 50th!

                Mibbit broke for an hour. I spent about 20 minutes trying to remember how to get Chatzilla to work. Derp! Smogon works now though. Let's see if it works tomorrow. LOL

                  Had yet another great day trading on the GTS! Managed to get a Tornadus, Thundurus and a Regigigas. And they all show up green on Pokecheck!
