Just got a rare Pokémon? Perhaps you're trying to breed a shiny Charmander? Or maybe you think this picture sucks and can recommend a better picture?

Whether it's an achievement, a question, or a general status update, post it here! It doesn't even have to be trade related 😲

And to kick us off, I'll start by asking everyone a question; What's the rarest Pokemon you've ever obtained from a trade?

For me, I think it would have to be my shiny WISHMKR Jirachi. I joined PC to try to get a Jirachi, but someone was nice enough to give me a shiny one instead!

The rarest Pokémon, huh?

To be honest, I can't think of any on the spot, but friend of mine traded me some WCS and NCD Pokémon as he is going there almost every year. And they are pretty rare here in Europe as far as I know.

Also some Pokémon from ORAS Battle Competitions like Dragonite with Barrier, Whitney's Miltank or Cynthia's Garchomp. Not everyone got these.

Oh, Barrier Dragonite! I remember it was one of those things where I thought to myself "I still have plenty of time to qualify for it", and before I realised, time flew and I couldn't grab it anymore. One of my biggest Pokemon regrets for sure.

I'm not quite sure what the rarest Pokemon I've ever gotten that I didn't ask for. I know I use to do a lot of Wonder Trading when the games first come out but not so much anymore.

When people don't mass-spam hacked shiny Pokemon, I find Wonder Trade as a really nice way of obtaining Pokemon that I may have otherwise not have. My backlog for breeding shiny Pokemon in Apriballs with uncommon Egg Moves received from WT is HUGE!

I've been working on a shiny living Dex for quite awhile and for the time being I'm just working on getting it full and then work on making it legal. I did have a shop open for a bit but it just seemed like to much work at the time and I don't have any special tools to do checks or cloning.

I just noticed the link in your sig! That's a very respectable effort either way, made even cooler by the fact that you didn't even use cloning (I'll admit, I cheat a little and clone multiple copies of the same Pokemon for my living dexes). That said, please feel free to use the cloning and hack checking services here in TC if you ever feel like it; they exist for you guys!

Also don't quote me on this, but there may or may not be a fun event relating to Trade Shops in the foreseeable future so it may not hurt to dust off your Trade Shop.

Lol I've been working on getting my shop back up. I know there are hacks in my Living Dex right now because I know a bunch are from AusLuv that I have gotten from Wonder Trades. Though they will be replaced once I get legal ones.

The Zeraora event is a bit of a mess right now. I could've sworn it was announced to release at EB Games for Canada and Australia, but when I visited EB Games on the 19th (here in Australia), they said that they have no knowledge of when the event will be available whatsoever. It feels like Australia is being shafted again like we were with the shiny Poipole event 🙃

I did get them early, put I posted for another give away and no one responded, I was surprised, thinking no one knew about them.

Honestly, I'd try it again after the distribution is over. At that point, everyone who didn't get Zeraora would be very interested in trying to nab it.

In the spirit of this sub-forum, I was wondering how often people traded with others in Pokemon Go? Do you think the restriction that Trainers must be close to each other to trade is a pain in the Slowpoke, or a good thing to encourage players to meet each other?

I think it can be a pain because of the whole regional Pokemon unless they do the whole egg event or you have enough money to fly around yourself.

Yeah, unfortunately the region-locked Pokemon aren't that fun. While I understand the exclusivity is supposed to encourage trading with strangers, let's be honest, how likely are you to meet a foreigner who's from a specific region and plays Pokemon Go? The egg thing is pretty ridiculous too; I can't stop getting Barboachs in 2km eggs, much less get lucky enough to spin a 7km egg during the promotion period that has the Pokemon I want. Pokemon Go isn't kind to collectors 😢

Question: Is it legal to offer a unused code for a zeraora in exchange for another pokemon? I just want to know for sure before i do anything, so i do not make any mistakes that goes against the rules, thanks!
Hey there! I've merged your thread with DCC as this is generally where all non-trade stuff goes.

To answer your question, Crwatkins is right; unused codes are perfectly acceptable trade fodder! Just be sure to let people know what region the code is from, as they generally cannot be used in non-native regions (i.e. US codes for US carts, PAL codes for PAL carts, etc.).

Feel free to use this thread for further questions or concerns you might have.

Speaking of codes I have a small rant to make. I really hate what become of them in my country. There isn't a way to get to the codes now, because only distributor decided to let people pay for them - you have to buy Pokmon game from their e-shop to get a code with it. Which isn't really a great way unless you want to pay 45 each month to get them all. They used to make those "like, subscribe, share" giveaways, but I haven't seen one in a while.

Do you have similar problems in your country too?

Okay, what the heck did I just read? Why on Earth did they think that was a good idea?!

Although, I'm not one to talk. In my country, they usually just skip the distribution altogether :')

Hello there! This thread is meant to serve as a 'chit-chat' thread, so while you can talk about trades, it's not intended to be for trading.

Actual trade requests go in the main page of Trade Corner (the page you were on before you clicked this thread, here's a quick redirect in case you're confused). You can click on 'New Thread' on this page and create your trade request thread. I'd recommend using the 'Gen 6' category tag when you make your new thread, to let others know you're trading in a gen 6 game (as generation 6 and 7 games aren't cross-compatible).

Best of luck!

Come to the US and you will get these responses as follow

1st Day: Sorry, we are out of the codes because our store is very popular and/or only one code per person if you ask for more.

2nd Day: like above

3rd Day: like above

..................

Last Day: take all you need since I have more stacks that need to be get rid of
