Ok, so upon entering this forum, I am sure you are bamboozled by what on earth you are able to do here

As you can see, the Pokémon are seperated into region and then seperated into family.

As many Pokémon have got evolutions spread across the many lands in the Pokémon world which will definitely cause confusion among many. In this trade board, what I did was made sure the thread for the family is in the forum for the first instance of the family seen.

For example;

Electabuzz has a 2nd Gen Pre-Evo, Elekid, and a 4th Gen Evolution, Electivire,. You will find the family in the Kanto folder.

However, we do not require you to remember every evolution. At the bottom of every forum are redirects. These are links to the family thread of any Pokémon within that region's dex but whom is part of another family. Very easy to find. Just use your Browser's search function to find the Pokémon that you want

Now, in the actual threads, what we expect you to do, if you're offering a certain Pokémon say for example an Electivire, we expect you to state what the Electivire has, maybe its stats and say that you want to trade it and what you would want for it

For the time being, we would like to ask you all to refrain from saying "I want this Pokémon". You are allowed to reply to people offering the Pokémon with your offers but try to keep the discussion in each thread limited to that particular family.

This is all in an effort to decrease the constant spam in the previous DP Trade & Battle Forum.

If you have any queries...post here and the mod team will be happy to solve

Wee! First Post.
Finally, the chaos is over! My threads go COMPLETELY unnoticed most of the time. Wonder when the battle threads are coming...
EDIT: Sorry, just noticed the battle thread was up. Anyways, good job ending the chaos Joe!

Cool. One problem: The default ordering of the topics is "the last post time". It should be alphibetical so they will always be in order and easier to find.

erm i hate to be a stick in the mud but no 1 is useing them and they have been up all day cant we just use the old 1 as well and then there are 2 trading forms one for seking multiple pokemon like many shineys or starters etc and a second trade form for the people seeking a specific pokemon

So I offered my shiny Skarmory
All I said was its nature, level and said it's legit. Is that all you do?

Hello,

Will the DP Battle & Trade Thread be deleted? I see no quick reply....

11th July 2007, 12:39 AM
EDIT: I see wut u did thar >.>

But I need to ask a question: Can we post in the mew thread saying we have mews to trade for pokemon X(any pokemon)?

Edit number 2: Can we say we're looking for, say, a shiny spearow in the spearow thread?

Wow, some idiot is going to screw it up. I just know it.
Other then that, it seems like a pretty cool idea. I'll adjust to it.

i dont get it

what if you arent looking for one in particular, but want to do a batch trade

this system is really not user-friendly

MidnightStorm
11th July 2007, 1:57 AM
Thanks a whole lot... this is exactly what we needed. Hopefully the problem is solved now.

By the way, do the DP Battle and Trade Sub-Forum still have a purpose? Since now there is a new system.

intrnd
11th July 2007, 2:05 AM
This certainly sounds like a good idea: much easier than digging through hundreds of trade threads to find the pokemon you want. But personally, I like the flexibility of the original trade thread better.

SheikTheGeek
11th July 2007, 3:56 AM
So what of the people that are looking for stuff other than specific pokemon? Like TMs?

Zephiel87
11th July 2007, 4:52 AM

anyway it needed some organization, so i hope it works.

11th July 2007, 4:53 AM
It's a nice idea, but one thread should be made in all of the subforums for shinies.

GreenAiden555
11th July 2007, 5:01 AM
So i take it we can't say we're looking for, say, a manaphy in the manaphy section? Like, say we're looking for a shiny one.

O-r-e-o
11th July 2007, 5:02 AM
This should be much more convenient once people start using it:). There's hardly anybody there now.

Also, could there possibly be a thread for eggs too (perhaps in the Johto section)?

Erm no it hasnt. I opened it 3...maybe 4 hrs before you post. 90% of that time the forums have been down or slow

The DP Battle & Trade forum is left open for people to finish any trades or tournements they have begun. The mods are in the process of transferring battle threads over

Theres an item trade thread in this forum since I know a lot of people are just trading those

kirkeastment
11th July 2007, 8:49 AM
no offense but this system is not user friendly.

for one thing, the best part about seperate threads for each person was that you could list all your pokemon in one place, now you've got to reply to over 100 topics just to tell people what pokemon you've got.

secondly, the new threads are going to get spammed to hell.
example. a person posts on page 3 of the deoxys thread, wakes up next morning to see its on page 5 and hes had no offers. that person then thinks, he's had no offers because no one is reading past the first few posts of that thread. which is true, no one will read past the first page of each pokemon title.

thirdly. alot of people like myself have hundreds of pokemon they'd like to trade. who in their right mind would waste 2 hours of their life posting in 100 different topics.

foruthly. when you make a post in the new forum setup saying you have a deoxys for trade, you'll have to go through all of the new posts the next day trying to figure out which person is talking to you in regards to trading. Again this is very time consuming, and whos to say that person who made an offer will be online. The reason why people bump there threads and create new ones is because they want to do quick trades, and get what they want really fast.


Lastly. If you wanted to make an easier system for trading, allow each member to make a post saying what they've got and what they're trading.


Then place those threads into sub-forums.

So for example, Kirks trading thread would go in a sub-forum titled Members trades K - O.

Then make threads within that forum titled

Members trade's K
Members trade's L
Members trade's M
Members trade's N
Members trade's O

Within those you would have a first post made by you, that has hyperlinks to posts by members who names begin with whichever inital corresponds with their username in that thread.

So in;

Members trade's K

You'd have the first post saying this is where members whos username begins with K can offer what they've got for trade.

then the next person to post would label their post title.{examle}

Kirk's Trading Emporium, and then list all of the pokemon they've got, and say to PM them with any offers.

then you or another mod could add a hyperlink to the first post on the thread titled, Kirk's Trading Emporium, that when clicked on would take any person directly to my thread or another persons thread depending on the hyperlink they clicked

Sorry but your method is not user friendly. 8 times out of 10, when people are looking for a trade, they are looking for specific Pokémon and this is what this is set to go for. Having it by Members would make things a LOT more difficult for anyone to find what they want at all

You dont have to post in like 100 different topics. Have some restraint. People doing that would be classed as spammers

They may get spammed a bit yes, but that'll just be a small fraction of the spam, bumping etc that was going on in the previous trade forum

And believe it or not, people are a lot smarter than you give them credit for. They will look beyond the first page

This is the best and most logical system and thats that

Casual_Friday
11th July 2007, 9:18 AM
I have a question. Say im looking for an item. I post in the item thread. There, i want to list everything i have that i want to trade. Pokemon, items, pokemon with items. The list could go on seeing as there are plenty of pokemon and plenty of items. Now, i dont want to clutter the thread with a nice copy-paste from "notepad" listing what i have in my possesion. That would be bad

Something ive been thinking about is hyperlinking to my old trade thread that had that neat copy-paste in a neat format. They could be forwarded back to that thread to see what i have to offer and then post back in the original item thread. Now, this leads to my question.

Will the trade threads created before the merge be deleted rendering my idea moot?

I figure that my ramblings may be hard to look through so if you have no clue what im saying ill see if i can clear things up.

This is the best and most logical system and thats that

what about the other supposed 2/10 people who are not looking for specific pokemon but instead were making threads listing all the pokemon they had up for trade, and they listed that they were looking for perhaps only event pokemon or they were looking for only shinies{not specific shinies but just shinies in general}, what are they supposed to do now.

Also now that the new system is in place, who actually decides whats considered spamming.

Example:

I've got 30 different shiny or event pokemon i want to trade, and i'm not looking for specifics. I'm only looking for other event pokemon or shinies.

Would i be allowed to post in the 30 threads that my pokemon are a part of, or would i be subjected to the rules and have to limit my posting to only 5 threads a day, and if its the latter, then whats the point of calling this a trading thread, its just like another member called it in the general section.

Its and updated form of the GTS, only just a little bit more conformed with less hacks.

sephirot
11th July 2007, 12:04 PM
i totally agree with kirkeastment

it's impossible to use this new sistem for generic request like "looking for event pokemon"

old method was 10 times better

joschi16
11th July 2007, 12:07 PM
yes 10 times better

sephirot
11th July 2007, 12:07 PM
and all users have to make their offers in only one topic per pokemon?
that's no sense for me -.-
it's impossible to track question and answer this way

and i'd like to know where i must put a topic like this: "looking for event pokemon" that involves all 4 gen... it's not possible to post in every single section, and in every single topic for all those pokemon!

i think that a possibility is to keep both section....

buzzthebatgirl
11th July 2007, 12:26 PM
I prefered the old method. I like to just browse for offers. This new system is great if you are looking for just one Pokemon, but since each thread is set to one poke it can get confusing if, say, three people are offering the same pokemon in the thread.

sephirot
11th July 2007, 12:33 PM
and i think more than 3 users will post...

tominator_49
11th July 2007, 12:44 PM
my computer struggles to load serebii quickly and efficiently because of the high level of traffic. I worry this is going to be far more time consuming with the new system as I'll have to look through many seperate threads. At least with the old system you could stick to your own thread and wait for offers!
Go back to the old system while we still can!

sephirot
11th July 2007, 12:49 PM
i totally agree

Serebii
11th July 2007, 12:56 PM
We're not going back to the old system. That was partially responsible for SPPf being so damned slow with all the constant spam posts, bumping etc. It was taxing the server

11th July 2007, 1:00 PM
The trade-section is completely dead right now. =/

tominator_49
11th July 2007, 1:07 PM
Also, if someone is looking for a pokedex filler like Muk, they will go onto the Muk section and there will be no posts. Compare this to mew or deoxys which will be flooded. No one's going to bother posting under the muk section 'I am trading a muk' because they wont necesarily get much for it. And you say we're not allowed to say 'I want.....such and such(muk)' so it looks like people are going to struggle to get the less wanted pokemon and will have to wait around for someone to offer one (in some pokemon's cases, this wont happen) whereas people looking for deoxys will have more than enough to choose from.

sephirot
11th July 2007, 1:11 PM
he said he won't change back, but i do not think it's a good idea

i preferred a slow forum with a cool trade section, not a fast forum with a horrible trade section :D

Lord Bowser
11th July 2007, 1:16 PM
Does anyone now a good and big forum that has a normal WiFi-section? =/

Only bad thing is you can't show all of the Pokemon you have.

i'm only getting sad remembering the old trade forum...

DarkFurret
11th July 2007, 2:51 PM
I was going to say I like the new system, but no one seems to be using it decently.

The old version was a lot easier to use. But maybe I can get used to it. Though everyone seems to ASK for the Pokémon in each section.

Dunno if this will work out. Hope it does.

DarkSpectrum
11th July 2007, 3:12 PM
Seems nice although i think it would be of better quality if the item trade threads were split between berries, tms, and then "other" items.

11th July 2007, 3:16 PM
Do we just offer pokemon in thier family threads?

Serebii
11th July 2007, 3:48 PM
I'm not saying it wont take getting used to, its a new system thats radically different from the crap that was before.

Thats why people aren't using it decently, they aren't used to it. Guarantee within a fortnight everyone will be using this and using it well

You guys have gotta accept this, its how its going to be. We had the same issues regarding the Episode Discussions when they opened...you'll get used to it

For the time being, we would like to ask you all to refrain from saying "I want this Pokémon". You are allowed to reply to people offering the Pokémon with your offers but try to keep the discussion in each thread limited to that particular family.

Am I understanding this correctly to mean that we can't post the we are searching for a specific pokemon in its respective thread (ex. we can't post in the chatot thread that we're looking for a chatot)?

(not sure if this has already been addressed, but I thought I might as well ask).

tominator_49
11th July 2007, 9:43 PM

Dragonmastertran
11th July 2007, 9:53 PM
I like all 2 , old forum and new forum , The old one make easier to offering pokémon . The new one make easier to search pokémon,I like th family division but not for each pokémon has one threat!.But personaly I like more , a little , the old one but I know that serebii will not use it. SO I suggest to make a general offer board because if , that was said beford , I don't want a specific pokémon and I'm offering a lot of pokémon for other event pokémon I don't want to post everywhere!

I was wondering the same thing. Do we have to wait for someone to post "I have this Pokemon"? Because I have a feeling I'm going to have to wait for a looong time. I mean, aside from this, I approve of this system, but I don't want to wait forever for someone to post, "I have a ___".

shiny-poliwrath
12th July 2007, 12:38 AM
I really don't like this new system at all. It's impossible to request for new Pokemon, especially shinies, as everybody is just going to be looking in each thread for Pokemon they want, rather than Pokemon that they want to trade...

It would have been better to just set the forum to trim all the threads in the other old section that haven't been posted in for a certain period of time.

redblueyellow
12th July 2007, 3:06 AM
Cool!:) I just have a few questions:

Say I'm looking for a level 50 timid zapdos from FR/LG with HP Grass or the correct IV's for it (which I am) and I want to post that I'm looking for one in the zapdos trade thread. Can I do that?

Also, will there be a sticky for just shinies, or are they to be posted in the pokemon threads also?

Yeah, Serebii! Say it how it is! :P *so not a nerd*

So, yeah...I think this system is EXTREMELY efficient. Once more people come here and start using it like mad, there will be NO problems for people finding specific Pokemon...and eventually, there'll be enough offers for each Pokemon so that nobody has to break the rules and say "Does anybody of a ___?" in one of the family's forums. Everyone will get used to it, and in no time they'll be saying, "Why was I complaining that I wanted the old one? This one's great!"

Sure, if you're just searching for JUST a shiny Pokemon of any species, I guess you can't do that anymore, but hey...get over it, right? :D

Anyway, I LOVE this new system...congratulations...I know you thought long and hard about how you were going to do this, and it turned out excellently! GREAT! :)

I speak for a few users who've given up on serebii's trade system.



I really don't like the fact that they pretty much said "Okay, old way sucked, so now a new way. This is the way I want, and I don't give a **** about what you, or anyone else has to say"


Okay, so, wait: We were used to making a thread stating what pokemon we have for what pokemon we want, then BOOM! One afternoon, our whole trading world on serebii got turned upside down without any kind of warning. Yeah, REAL smart


Jeeze, ****(another forums site) is looking better aldreay :/


I didn't say that. That's former serebii users who said that on a different forum

I think the new way is half decent. But seriously, this puts Serebii DEAD LAST for all the other competition sites where you can make trade threads and trade pokemon. There now, like, 5 other sites I *may* be going to insead of serebii.

Also, I don't like the fact questions are going unanswered....

12th July 2007, 9:47 AM
I have to ask any moderators or serebii who read this thread. I know this is slightly off the subject of trade and more on the subject of battling could we if at all possible have another subforum for battling just for peoples leagues and tourneyments? On the subject trading now i think this is a lot better gives people more of a chance to get a pokemon what they are looking for :)
Thank you serebii!

This wasn't just something I did on a whim. The mods have been saying about how bad, spammy and unsustainable the old trade forum was since Early May and as a group we decided this as it IS a better system. People were just posting, spamming and bumping threads to no end, breaking almost every forum rule. Either way, it wouldn't have been as super as you guys make it out to be

If you feel that you must leave because of something as trivial as this, then so be it, but you'll find less than a tenth of the trading opportunities here over there...so good luck with that

Oh, and the lack of answering questions is due to 1) Sleep 2) Having a life..I don't ****ing sit at the PC 24/7 reading these ****ing posts

This new structure is ridiculous. How the hell can you trade away your shinies in a SINGLE thread?! Everyone posting his shinies in one thread isn't really much improvement, is it?! This is so annoying.

As for the regular Pokemon, everyone is now only posting what they are LOOKING FOR. Is just not possible anymore to offer the thing you want to trade. This new structure really is NOT an improvement at all...

As I said in the announcments thread, there's a tradeoff involved in both ways. I'm sorry, but the way the SPPf staff has chosen is better for the forum and its users than the old way. There may be some difficulties in getting used to it, but overall it's more efficent, less disorganized, and easier to use. Granted, some circumstances don't adapt themselves as well to this method, but that's how it goes. If you want to make an overall trade/want thread, do what I did and make yourself a website and link to it in your sig. That way, when you do post in individual Pokemon threads, people can see your sig (if they have sigs turned on) and take a look there.

Besides, there are always alternatives. Go to GameFAQs and trade there if you like the more disorganized and helter-skelter method better. Your trade topic will be bumped off the page within the first minute, but hey, it's just like the old way.

I know it sounds selfish, but if SPPf loses members due to this new organization, all the better for users like me. There'll be less lag, and more ease of use. ;)

At first I didn't like the idea, but then I came to realise two things

1. I don't trade that often

2. I can just put rare Pokemon up asking for something as simple as Johto starters.

It was easier to get shinies, if you can make your threads, now all threads are one. it is a big chaos. that's my opinion.

It's because people are stupid and don't read this part of the "How to use the Serebii Trade Forum":


Now, in the actual threads, what we expect you to do, if you're offering a certain Pokémon say for example an Electivire, we expect you to state what the Electivire has, maybe its stats and say that you want to trade it and what you would want for it

For the time being, we would like to ask you all to refrain from saying "I want this Pokémon". You are allowed to reply to people offering the Pokémon with your offers but try to keep the discussion in each thread limited to that particular family.

Now if everyone actually put up their offer and gave info on them, and actually specified what they want, this system would work. If they also read the second paragraph, this system would work. Personally, I think that you should only be able to post offers in these threads to reduce SPAM. I went into one thread where everything was "I want Shiny [name], I will give you anything." Posting like this wont work, there should be a way to post Pokemon and their info so that it is readable. Personally I would prefer something like how people posted their movesets, only a bit different:

Offer:
;152; Chikorita Lv 100
Gender: Female
Serious Nature
Item: Miracle seed
-Razor leaf
-Tackle
-Solar Beam
-Synthesis

Want: Cyndaquil, Totodile, Mew, Magikarp

Something like this would reduce the chaos. I'd hate for all these threads to turn out like the Moveset thread where everybody is asking for a moveset (eventhough it was just posted) and no one helping. Actual trades should be conducted through PMs.

The only way to get them (unless you live in Japan and went to the Darkrai event) is to either hack or glitch them. Both methods are against Serebii rules. Why would they undermine their own forum rules?

There are too many people? There aren't as much as the old trade forum, and trust me, if you look in these threads you will actually find shinies. I've visited random threads, and they have all had atleast one person offering up a shiny. Just because it isnt like the old forum where the first five pages are dominated by "I have Shinies" and "I want Shinies" threads, does not mean it is hard. Personally, I find it way easier to find Pokemon with this system. In the old system it's always been "I want Shiny" "I have Shiney" " I want [name] Natured Pokemon!" In the old system, you can only get what you want by posting a thread, and even then they are bumped to the back so easily. It may have worked if people had a link to their thread in their sig, but instead they just decided to make hundreds of extra threads everytime theirs went of the front page.

Shuko
12th July 2007, 6:29 PM
i never said "event pokemon of the 4th gen". where did u read it? -.-I inferred it. If you had meant the other gens, then you didn't actually look at the forums, as you'd know that each of those Pokemon has its own thread in those respective generations (for example, there's a Mew (http://www.serebiiforums.com/showthread.php?t=258735) thread in the Kanto forum). The only event Pokemon that aren't accounted for are the ones in the 4th gen, which is why I assumed you meant those.

Elementary, my dear sephirot. ;)

Besides, that's just part of the trade off that having a more organized forum is going to enforce. It's already been stated on many occasions that looking for bulk groups of pokemon is no longer feasible with the new system. There's no point in restating the obvious. Besides, if you want to look for all of them, wouldn't it also make sense to take it one at a time so that you don't miss any?

Wow, noted for future reference

As for your Milotic...you cant blame it on my new system, as if you've been looking for it for months, you would have found one in the old forum


If you can quote me anywhere I said that, please show me. I belong to almost 6 other forums and get responses to my questions in a few hours. Not days or never.

For miltoic, I looked with the old system since the 5th day D/P came out, and didn't find one. Less than an hour on another forum, BAM! I get it.

12th July 2007, 7:35 PM
And it's a shame that people dont bother reading this because half the posts have turned into

"I want a Shiny [Name]"

They dont even bother saying what they have to offer, and if they do they say "I'll give anything"

The problem here isn't the new system, but that people are either:

a) Too stupid to read this thread

b) Cannot understand even the most straight forward of instructions

c) Reads this but just dont care

If I already didn't have a trade ready for Chikorita and Cyndaquil (well actually two) I would have posted in the Kanto legendary pages offering Arcticuno, Moltres, Zapdos, and Mewtwo holding some fossils just for these guys. People need to realise the key to making this work is not to go onto threads saying "I want x Pokemon" bu to go into threads offering their own Pokemon and asking for the ones they want. Or atleast specify what they are willing to offer for "x" Pokemon when they post in those threads, but apparantly the extra three seconds it takes to do that is too time consuming.

by the same token, people who would prefer it in species order can click the Thread link and it will order them by number.

i still believe that organized by last post time is a more useful layout, especially since with all the pre-evos, the numerical order gets messed up anyway. taking first generation as an example, there are 11 threads listed after Mew, which utterly defeats the point of pokedex order.

All right I've noticed that many of you who are saying how much better the new system is havent used the old system hardly at all. I find this kind of rediculous.... >.>

Anyway, I came up with a way to make the new system a little more likable. I've already posted this on another thread so I'll just quote it from there.


Y'know Serebii, what you ought to do is make another sub-forum dedicated to long lists of Pokemon up for trade. It wouldn't get overcrowded because all of the threads in this sub-forum would consist of many Pokemon, not just one.
In other words, all of the individual Pokemon-trading would remain in their respective Family sub-forums, and the long lists of Pokemon would go in a seperate sub-forum.
This shouldn't be a problem; if you look back in the old "DP Battles and Trades" subforum, you'll see that most of the threads were subjected to a single Pokemon. With individual Pokemon trading now taking place in the "Family" subforums, there would be no need to worry about this new subforum becoming the mess that the old system was. Of course, there would need to be a template that the first post on each thread would need to follow, and you would have to set a minimum number of Pokemon that must be up for trade on each thread. All users would only be allowed a maximum of one thread in this subforum. If someone doesn't follow the template or have at least the minimum number of Pokemon up for trade listed on their threads first post, the thread will be deleted.

This may or may not work, buts it's worth a try, eh?

So what do y'all think?

EVs give extra Stat points for Pokémon. There is an upper Limit to EVs. 510 for all Stats combined, and 255 for per stat. EV trained means that They've already got the Max, usually in useful stats. Like full Sp. Att for Psybeaming Alakazam.

He won't.

I'll explain why..

The Old method had the problem that a minority "Bumped" their thread to gain visibility. ("Bumping" is posting with not very much detail just to get a Thread to top, a practise discouraged in lots of Forums)

The Server (Computer that has this forum on it) has to create a web page for every person who comes here, well for every click. So each user's click gave the server another task. There is a set amount of tasks one server can do before it slows down or misses stuff. During May and June, you could see this happening from 4pm to 12am BST.

The problem got worse as more users "Bumped" their threads. Serebii and the staff saw that the trading forum had the most traffic, and also by same people. They decided to stop it before the server they had was unworkable 12 hours a day.

Basicly, the old Method was killing the site. One thing you don't want to do is kill your site.

Not everyone knows every event pokemon that was given away at any particular events. Making a thread specifically for that may hinder your chances of finding someone who wants it. And the Shiny thread is already overflowing as is, posting there would be even less than posting in the correct thread.
Some pokemon are even only available by event/disc, i.e. manaphy, mew, celebi, jirachi.

PokemonTrainerLisa
25th July 2007, 9:36 AM
Yeah, but if people go on Serebii they can *find* the event Pokemon in question, listed on this page: http://www.serebii.net/games/events-pkmn.shtml


That's why I thought it might be a good idea if there was an actual thread for trading event Pokemon. ^^o

And since JAA went to so many cities last year, you would think that many people would be aware of event Pokemon (the U.S. event Pokemon, anyway).

Yeah, but if people go on Serebii they can *find* the event Pokemon in question, listed on this page: http://www.serebii.net/games/events-pkmn.shtml


That's why I thought it might be a good idea if there was an actual thread for trading event Pokemon. ^^o

And since JAA went to so many cities last year, you would think that many people would be aware of event Pokemon (the U.S. event Pokemon, anyway).

JAA didn't goto nearly as many as they could have nor was it very widely announced. I didn't even know about it til after the fact.

I seriously don't see the point in having a seperate thread for event pokemon when most of them are only obtainable from events/special methods thus making the threads for those specific pokemon useless.

Yeah, I understand what you mean. But anyway, I was just saying that I thought there needed to be a thread for event Pokemon. That's all.... ^^o

I wasn't trying to say that everyone knows about them. That's obviously not the case, as event Pokemon themselves are rare enough - so rare that some people aren't even aware they exist.


But still, even so, I just thought it would be more "fair" if there was a thread for event Pokemon. I mean, shiny Pokemon are rare and there's a thread for them (though, I guess that's different - now they're not so-rare anymore, cause of the Pokeradar thing...).

Also, for example, let's say that someone is wanting an event Pokemon (or more specifically, a bunch of Pokemon from a certain event - like JAA). They would have to go to *all* of the individual threads to request and make offers, therefore making it harder for them to complete such a task.

I really need some help with trading on Wi-Fi...

I have posted this already in the D/P help thread, but my post seems to have been ignored in amongst the people with hundreds of easier questions. Besides I think this is a better place for my question.

I Only got a DS the day that Diamond came out here in the UK so I havent much experience with going online with anything other then my PC.

Anyway, my problem is this:

I set up my DS and use my wireless router ( which I've never had problems with ) and managed to find my router with the DS easily. I Also connected to the whole nintendo wi-fi thing without any problems in the downstairs bit of the poke centers. Everything was going fine until the trade was under way. I chose 'Apply' to agree to trade and the DS said that it was connecting with my friend (another trader from these forums). After a short while I got disconnected and an error code 86420.

I tried a number of different things, including resetting the DS a few Times, resetting the router and disabling the firewall on the router itself, none of these worked and I kept getting the same error code.

Surely disabeling the firewalls on the individual computers ( there are 2 sharing the router ) wont have any effect since the DS connects to the router directly as opposed to through one of the computers.

I have dome a few searches on the net about the error code and no one seems to know much appart from its probably a firewall problem. If it is, which firewall should I be disabling to get my trade working.

Thanks for any help.

to do a basic online trade or battle you go to the bottom floor of any poke center and make sure the person you are trading or battling with has your freind code and you have theres. then you enter and the person you are trading with should be there then you can arrange a battle or trade. if you trade on the gts you have to have seen the pokemon you want for some reason but if you havent seen a pokemon yet and cant get it off the gts trade on here in the trade forum
hope that helps....

In forums it quite useful to read the First Post:


Ok, so upon entering this forum, I am sure you are bamboozled by what on earth you are able to do here

As you can see, the Pokémon are seperated into region and then seperated into family.

As many Pokémon have got evolutions spread across the many lands in the Pokémon world which will definitely cause confusion among many. In this trade board, what I did was made sure the thread for the family is in the forum for the first instance of the family seen.

For example;

Electabuzz has a 2nd Gen Pre-Evo, Elekid, and a 4th Gen Evolution, Electivire,. You will find the family in the Kanto folder.

However, we do not require you to remember every evolution. At the bottom of every forum are redirects. These are links to the family thread of any Pokémon within that region's dex but whom is part of another family. Very easy to find.

Hey everyone! I was just wondering, everyone seems to want a mixture of the old and new system... Kirkeastment's idea I thought was great but Serebii's point is also valid. You can't easily find a wanted Pokémon with Kirkeastment's idea but you can't easily trade all your Pokémon with Serebii's idea. So, what if you were to have them both? It might make the forums slower but then both sides would be happy. And if Serebii isn't willing to do this, my forums have this system if anyone would find that easier. I'm not advertising, just suggesting an idea and solution(s). Oh yea, I had a previous screen name and forgot the password coz it's old... So don't call me a noob coz I'm not.

Would it bew possible to break it down further and include, searching for/trading away?;328;

3rd November 2007, 2:57 AM
This system is not actually that hard to figure out, and if people stopped being idiots and stopped posted something like this:


I want [insert pokemon]

PM me :)

And was more specifi with what they have, then everything would be so much nicer. If you are trading the Pokemon away, post something like this


I have this:

[insert name]
[additional info]

What I want:
[insert wants whther they be item or Pokemon]

FC: 0000-0000-0000
PM me

Or if your asking for something


I want:
[insert Pokemon]
[Additional info]

What I can offer:
[insert your offers]

FC: 0000-0000-0000
PM me

Additional information is something like natures, traits, moves, and whether it is EVed or not.

Seriously, there needs to be a unified way of posting to make browsing easier, just like how the RMT has a format for posting teams.

Well you just have to compromise.
Alot of trades get done as soon as someone posts, because most people only PM me back if they are online.
If it's a trade that you desperately want you just have to find out eachothers timezones and try to synch up.

Ok, here is what I usually do. I open a thread with the name "firewall's breeding center". I state that I am willing to breed rare pokemon such as munchlax, Johto starters etc. And that it is a non-profit service so they're free. The customer posts what they want and they can choose up to six at a time (hatched/unhatched, nickname/no nickname, egg moves, if available)

I accept the order and state a time frame for retrieval as I breed them upon request. Everything is guaranteed legit and comes with a free gift.

I started such a service in other places, the goal is to assist trainers who want a hard to get pokemon but haven't been able to.

Actually, I am delivering a client's totodile egg as I am posting this, client from the second center.

I have a question about legitimacy. What makes a rare pokemon legitimate?

I personally define a legit pokemon as one who was actually caught at the place where the game has programmed them to be, regardless of the methods used to get there.

And also, what makes a shiny legit? one you simply came across? Because that's incredibly difficult. My AR can get me any number of shinies, with no glitchy side effects. If they aren't considered legit, then I won't use them, but it would be nice to know.

Tiny
26th May 2008, 7:19 PM
legitimate shinys are just that, shinys that have been found with an approx. 1 in 8000 chance. This is why they are so highly sought after, because of their rarity. If you hack a shiny with an action replay in any way at all, regardless of where you find it it is illegitimate in the moral sense and you will find that although it can be played online it is considered to be worth less than nothing on the trade forums and will get you banned.

Unless you can see them in-game from a trainer there is no easy way.
You can trade for any pokemon over wireless, it's just the GTS where you have to have seen them first.
So I could trade you a charmander even if you haven't seen it but you can't look for one on the GTS as it's not in your dex.

You find you Friend Code by going to the basement of the pokemon center and connecting to wi-fi for the first time. Then you can check your code any time in the pal pad.

Can you please use this page: http://www.serebiiforums.com/showthread.php?t=258939 and say want you Give/want.


I'm willing to trade my Palkia for one legitimate Pikachu holding a Light Ball and one legitimate Charmander holding TM46 Thief. I don't care about their nature, level and gender.

I think it's a fair trade as Pikachu and Charmander are both reobtainable by breeding and Palkia, unfortunately, is not.

Please PM me.

Thank you, ^_^

Since both people need to add their DS codes, ask someone you want to trade/Battle with.

I usually do in the PMs or IM.

Quick request to the mods:

Is it possible for you to split the Item Trading sections into more than one single thread? While I know that item trading is less popular than Pokemon trading, I'm finding it somewhat hard to sift through all those pages looking for an exact item, and I surmise that it would be just as hard to offer up any various items that I want to trade away (such as one of the three Magmarizers that I just got a few minutes ago).

If I may suggest, make a new subforum for Items, and make multiple threads in there like a stones thread (Dawn, Shiny, etc.), stat-boosting items thread (plates, things like Mystic Water and Magnet), Battle Tower items thread (EV-training stuff, etc.), evolution-inducing held items thread (Magmarizers, King's Rock, etc.), berries thread, and so on.

This forum is a result of an access problem. The old Trade Forum was Full of Bumping posts, which put so much load on the server that the you often didn't connect, to the forum.

Serebii decided to prevent a few people making hard for everyone else, is to make a new system.

Who am I kidding? Your sig is not nice about the mods, who can alter the signatures..

This is an help thread for the trade system.. You should ask in this forum. http://www.serebiiforums.com/forumdisplay.php?f=156

It's some times best to say what you are willing to give for them.

It's for the DS Pokémon games: Pokémon Diamond, Pearl and Platinum. (Platinum is presumed name of the newest game in Japan, which is called Pocket Monsters: Plantina (which is the nearest you can get to Platinum.))

Read the Tech FAQ pages to see how to get your DS online.

They already exist, But since there are Kanto Evo/Pre-evo are at the bottom, they are near the middle.

Also Most Web Browsers Have a Find option. IE and Firefox has it accessible by hitting CRTL+F. Type in the name or National Dex no and hit find.

not sure where to put this, but...

how are you supposed to trade for pokes like mewtwo, deoxys, jirachi, etc. on the GTS if you can't see them normally in-game?

You can trade using Local wireless with a friend near by or Wifi using Friend codes for them, or Transfer them from a GBA game.

This subforum is for users to trade Pokémon that they can't get on GTS, and some sperfic move sets.

Also Users must insert give their FC to their trade partner, and insert the received FC in their Pal pad.
