    I just snagged a Druidigon. Of course that was after a plethora of bunelbies.

    Still I think its a cool little tool in the game. Plus it could make for some great challenges in future play throughs. For example, when a pokemon gets knocked out you have to wonder trade it away and use what ever you get.

    It's a nice idea, but I haven't used it yet. I'm always worried about these things, just think how many people are just trading level 1 Magikarps and stuff...

        The story began with me and my friends discovery of wonder trade. And I jokingly said "we'll what if we got a Mewtwo" and then laughed. Of course I went and tried wonder trade. Sending a level 7 pans ear and getting.... Drumroll please! A Gengar level 32. And I almost cried in joy (this is due to my love of ghost types and Gengar being my favorite pokemon). I don't usually get happy about other people's sadness but I chuckled when I thought about that poor fool.

          With this I'm starting to do a lot of trading chains, where I'll capture a Pokemon I haven't captured yet, and if it doesn't evolve or is a male, will trade it over Wonder Trade continuously until I get something I like. I've been doing 10 trades including the first Pokemon just to spread some of the love to everyone else. I'll update my current one as I go.
          Snorlax L15 > Caterpie L2 > Skiddo L10 > Snubbull L21 > Ledyba L8 > Woobat L23 > Pansear L4 > Spoink L14 > Minun L10 > Ponyta L30

          Wow, good thing I got that Ponyta on the last one. xD

            So far I've gotten a Ralts, Luvdisc, Gabite (which I'm REALLY happy about!!), Beedrill, and then Pikachus/Caterpies.

            All in all nothing too great, though I do like it enough to gamble on it every now and then.

            EDIT: Just snagged a Hippopotas! Not sure if they're common later in the game or I just haven't run into one, but I'm officially happy. c:

            I just tried it out there putting my Hawlucha up for trade and received a German Furfrou which is pretty cool. I haven't seen one in the wild yet either so that's actually quite good for me.

            I imagine for the most part people will just put up terrible pokemon below level 5 so I won't use it much more in future.

              I have been shiny hunting for Cranidos and I have over 15 boxes full of Cranidos (still no luck) and I am planning to send 1 or 2 boxes to my Pokemon X and Y and wonder trade them and see what I get

                    I think it's a great feature, koff~

                    I think it's a great way to complete the Pokedex. While I admit I've thrown up a couple easy captures, I have yet to get anything I wanted to keep, so I've just sent them through the trade route once more. It helps others and can help snag the hard to find ones. I just hope no one starts hoarding everything they get and keep spitting out Weedles. Actually, I think I need a Caterpie. Anyway, since it's a tack what you're given type system, don't go throwing your favorites in there, koffi~

                      I kinda don't wanna use wonder trade because I give my pokes weird nicknames and don't want to force that on anyone. Unless anyone wants a Simisear named Firecrotch, lol.

                          I am quite disappointed actually.
                          The concept is marvelous, just brilliant, however, the players have messed it up.
                          I have done 60 Trades (increasing over time, since I am still trading as I write), and the only notable Pokémon I had gotten were:
                          Eevee (very happy with this one, many thanks to Pierrot!)

                          That's a little less than 10 Caterpies/Scatterbugs/Bidoofs per useful Pokémon.
                          It kind of stings to trade a lvl 29 Gogoat and receive a lvl 3 Bidoof...

                          I think there should at least be some kind of level range on it, where if you offered a lvl 15 Pokémon, you should receive a Pokémon between lvl 11 and 20.

                          [Lord Summerisle:]“And the ministers fled the island never to return. What my grandfather started out of expediency, my father continued out of love. He brought me up the same way: to reverence the music, and the drama, and the rituals of the old gods; to love nature and to fear it, and to rely on it and to appease it when necessary. He brought me up —”

                            I did a few early trades (just basic stuff) and now I'm continuing to see what I can get.

                              So far;
                              Zigzagoon for a Teddyursa,
                              Teddyursa for a Gulpin,
                              Gulpin for a Pancham,
                              Pancham for a Espurr,
                              Espurr for a Kakuna,
                              Espurr for "Gey Betch 69's" Tweek Queen" (Flabebe) not even joking,
                              "Tweek Queen" for Skitty.

                              Pretty random assortment of pokemon. Some better than I expected.
                              That's all I'll do for now, might do more later.

                              Woo first post!

                              Caught a crap ton of Pumpkaboos and Luvdisc, so I've been getting trading some of them away.

                              Pretty standard stuff, but I got two Honedges, which I haven't encountered up to this point.

                                I've been breeding Fennekin and throwing them into Wonder Trade...

                                I think I'm too nice for these people...

                                I got a Flabébé, a Zubat, a Bidoof, a lot of Caterpies, and maybe a Weedle or two.

                                  I've traded a haunter for a metapod. Felt like being a nice guy and giving someone a Gengar.

                                  I tried a few Wonder Trades last night just to see what it was about, but it was still fairly early in the game and I didn't have much to offer. I think my first trade was my Azurill for a Zigzagoon, and then I just kept trading the Pokemon I got to someone else to see what else I could find, but the majority of what I got were other Zigzagoon, a few Bunnelby and one Pikachu. I might try doing it again later just to see what else I can find.

                                    You guys are all so bad! WHY DO YOU KEEP TRADING VERY EARLY POKEMONS!


                                    Yes, I'm pissed. Really pissed. I keep trading Skrelps, Vivillions, Gurdurrs and Gravelers and you know what I kept getting?

                                    BUNNELBYS AND STUPID MONKEYS

                                    Listen, STOP THE CYCLE OF HATE! I REPEAT! And if you appreciate your traded Pokemon, GIVE O-POWERS AS A SIGN OF THANK YOU

                                    That one guy who traded me a Ralts, it wasn't much but I know how rare a Ralts is. Thank you for the Litleo from that one girl! There was one person who gave me a Clauncher. Unfortunately, I already have one (even though I'm Y), but I appreciate a Spanish Clauncher.

                                    So guys, STOP THE CYCLE OF HATE!

                                    Other than that, I enjoy wondertrading! I got one guy randomly trade me a Steelix and I traded my Vespiquen. I still feel guilty though!
                                    Stop the cycle of hate!

                                        Well I think 'Wonder Trade' is nice but in some way I could come into it that trading a high level rare pokemon for a low level common pokemon is kinda frustration. I had hoped it would be more fair, atleast in the same level range.

                                        So it kinda became random trade for low level pokemon; better use GTS if you have a valuable pokemon.

                                        I did get azurill, fennekin and some other lovely pokemon from it. I don't mind low level pokemon as long as I dont have them yet, otherwise I keep wonder trading them.

                                          It's not surprising if people send bad pokemon when they're testing wonder trade. As we move forward the pokemon we offer will naturally become more valuable.

                                          Also if you send a version exclusive there's no guarantee you'll send it to somebody with the other version.

                                          I sent an eevee and got a furfrou in return. Already had one but that wasn't really the point, just wanted to throw an eevee at someone. I got a female squirtle so when I get fly I might start breeding them for wonder trade.
