We all know the trade forum here isn't perfect. Post your opinions here on what would be good to improve it.

Please remember to be respectful and check the thread to see if someone else has already suggested what you want for the section. Also don't make completely stupid/trolling suggestions either.

Happy Posting!

I think there should be a seperate thread in the trade forum where you only trade ev`d pokemon.

the milltank/touros thread(cant spell) could be seperated... but i wish there was a forum where people could request egg move pokemon just for that forum kinda like a egg move forum....cause in this forum,you will post and it is just overlapped by people that say i need this or i can breed this, and the specific set you need is never answered.

How about we do what every other forum does?

We each make our own threads for trades, so that things don't get all confusing.

Instead of one big thread, we could each post a thread containing our own Pokemon and then others could come and trade there.

Yeah like a shop for a person or partners, where they make offers with other people in THEIR Trade threads.

Yes.

Every other forum like Pokemon Community, Poke Beach, Marriland, and all the others have a system like this.

I think that would work better, instead of just one big ol' thread that gets all messy.

To everyone who supports the "have your own thread" idea: That used to be the system here, however the moderators decided that it was overtaxing the forums. This is why we have our current system, and so don't expect us to switch back any time soon.

If there's like a shop where you request/offer pokemon in a person's profile it would be easier. Or something like you modify the current trading threads, with a button which puts your name up if you need the pokemon or if you're breeding or if you have the pokemon. Then you look at their profiles, see what they are requesting or etc.

But people making their own threads? It would be an okay idea IF the thread is kinda like this:
Say you're looking for a Bulbasaur it would be like:

#001/002/003 Bulbasaur/etc:
#004... Charmander/etc:

*You click on the Bulbasaur thing and then it shows all the threads made by people that want/trading the pokemon along with the current one showing up on another page to multitask.*

Can we just make our own trading threads? Makes it a lot easier to look at what others have.

Ellie
7th July 2009, 11:41 PM
Please try to keep replies useful and on-topic. Making your own threads is something discussable, but please don't just put "yeah I agree" or something, add something new.

And it definitely will never be coming back EXACTLY the same as it used to be, if separate threads do come back.

Can we split the events part into regions? Like Japan events, US events, or something like that? That way, it'd be easier to locate foreign events.

That'd be useful. If you just needed a shard or something, or if you didn't have anything THAT great to trade, or if you have a bunch of extra baby pokemon.

i think the same Pok(e)xpert there should be a seperate thread in the trade forum where you only trade ev`d pokemon.

9th July 2009, 5:16 PM
Quick update I forgot to put in this thread yesterday

-Pokerus can now be traded in the Item Trading Thread (it's kind of like an item... right? Plus a whole thread dedicated to just Pokerus seemed a little excessive)
-There is now a sticky where you can trade for eggmoved Pokemon

Other things are being considered. Please remember to only post if you have something to add onto the discussion rather than just "I agree with x"

randomspot555
9th July 2009, 6:08 PM
I honestly don't think it's that bad. Sure, the trade forum has a lot of people not giving a lot of details or not following the rules of a thread (particularly in regards to event exclusive Pokemon), but that's not an inherent flaw in the system. That's just becuase people don't read the first post.

Anyway, I like that each Pokemon family has it's own thread. It's not perfect, but good enough for me.

We've already got an Item, Event, Shiny, and Egg move thread. I think there should be a specific thread for EV trained, and then another thread for IV bred Pokemon/breeding projects.

With the EV trained thread, a poster should be required to list the Pokemon's nature, EV spread, move set, and (option, not required) IV spread.

IV bred/breeding projects could probably be merged into the Egg Move Poke thread. Since IV checking is a huge hassle without hacking or tons of IV battles, maybe have the breeder just list the IVs of the parents and if an Everstone was use. And note if the Pokes are hatched or still in eggs.

Now on the subject of individual user-done threads:

I'm personally against this, for a vareity of reasons.

It creates an environment of elitism, where if certain traders don't like you, your thread is just going to be bumped off of page 1 quickly due to the 20 megathreads that get posts like "r u online?" and "oops gotta grab leftovers"

People can't manage to follow the rules now. I don't see how most traders here can be responsible enough to do basic crap like editing their OP, listing their friend code, updating their trade list, etc...

However, if individual trade threads do come back, I highly suggest moderation be on. And that those approving/rejecting threads have a good depth of knowledge regarding Event pokemon, mechanics that go into breeding (EVs, IVS, egg moves, natures), items, and so on.

Yes, I strongly agree that there should be an EV thread, finding EVs on the other trade threads are too hard.

macaro1
12th July 2009, 12:28 AM
i think that each pokemon should have their own thread besides having their evolve forms with them so it would be easier to just skim down to find them besides going down and looking for one of their evolve forms names

12th July 2009, 2:54 AM
I like the kanto johto hoenn and sinnoh thread thing but it would be cool if it could be clicked on, then it would go to recent threads posted by anybody about pokemon in that region. It would help get more trades in because everyone wouldn't need to PM all the time and the topics would be more recent. Some posts are from weeks ago and you go to send them a PM and realize that they haven't even been online for days. Just an opinion but i think it would work out pretty nicely.

James Bondage
12th July 2009, 3:51 PM
I think the simplest thing to do is to let people make there own threads and shops. HOWEVER, if the shop thread hasn't been active for two weeks, LOCK IT! If the person doesn't request it re-opened within two weeks after the lock, REMOVE IT entirely. This way everyone can show everything they have to offer, but with the cap on how long it can be inactive before a lock, and then being removed, it would almost remove the excess posts for multiple threads by the same people over and over again. Everyone gets one thread, and it stays active. They can update there as needed. (Posts wouldn't count towards total post count)

SPPF has had a "Till US shores" rule for the big event legendaries. In this case, Arceus, Darkrai, and Shaymin. All other events that either were Japanese exclusive, such as the Pokecenter Eevees, or events that had a Japanese release first and elsewhere later (Saikyo and TRU Dragonite, Movie/TRU Regigias) have been allowed to be traded since the Japanese release.

I honestly don't think this rule makes sense. Wi-Fi trading has made the Pokemon trading community much smaller. Due to cloning (glitch cloning and, unfortunately, AR/hack cloning), people brining multiple DS carts to events, or even people just plain generous, events exclusive to Japan are able to be obtained in a legit fashion by people elsewhere. I even know a handful of people on a foreign exchange program in Japan, and a few will be getting the soon-to-be-released Arceus.

Now then, I think a more sensible rule would be:

Ban all Japanese exclusive events: In the case of ones that get releases elsewhere, then allow the Japanese counterparts too. This applies the same rules to all Japanese only events, instead of different ones which make little/no sense. Or...

Allow JApanese exclusive events soon after the event take place: Let's face the facts, people already trade these events here anyway. Usually via PM/VM. And even though VMs and PMs can be reported and regulated, they often aren't. Even in the Event thread, a post can be there for days asking for a movie event before it gets deleted, if it ever does.

I'm personally in favor of the second, even though I got out of event trading long ago and have no desire to get back into it. I'm always in favor of letting it happen publicly so it can be moderated, rather than it be banned and it gets done via AIM or PMs. But at least both of these solutions put all Japanese exclusive events on an even scale.

For those of you wanting to know about the Arceus Event, it is officiallly being released IN JAPAN on the 18th of this month.

Also, I have PM'd SkittyOnWailord about the US Shores rule, and Skitty does not personally agree with it, stating that iwas the majority decision of other mods here at Serebii to have that rule. This rule is in place due to the possibilty of hack being traded.

Though I can see the moderators points on this, any SERIOUS event collectors are going to know the difference. The US Shores rule should be removed. It should be the responsability of the people trading to know EXACTLY what they are trading to each other. What happens on the forums would be a moderators bussiness, what happens while trading Pokes on the Nintendo DS, however, should not be.

Ellie
14th July 2009, 1:00 AM
All right guys, let's try not to derail this thread. It's suggestions, not debating back and forth :/.

Anyways, the reasoning behind some Pokemon (Arceus, shiny Jirachi, etc) being "forbidden" is that they're in such high demand with so few available that many of them are likely to be hacks. The Movie Arceus will not lift its ban, but if a WiFi event for Arceus (even if it's only for Japan) will lift it because it'll increase the number of available ones greatly. Same thing if there is ever a SRable Jirachi or Celebi event. If you don't like that rule, PM Joe himself because that's his rule.

As for the other Japanese events being available, they're not in as high of a demand. Yes, PCP is popular, but you can still get a regular shiny Pichu, as such it's not in quite as high of a demand. This is the only way to get a legit Arceus so far, so it's in very high demand and it's very unlikely that you'll be able to get a legitimate one (barring AR clones, because SPPf doesn't endorse using AR, even for cloning).

randomspot555
14th July 2009, 2:13 AM
If it's Joe's rule and that's it, then obviously it will stay no matter what others say. It's just a ridiculous rule. The trades are still being conducted here via PMs and VMs. Lifting the rule will at least let them happen publicly and be able to be moderated in a more efficient fashion.

I also really don't buy that it has a higher amount of hacks. I've been in the Wi-Fi chat doing a trade and a guy had 5 of his Pokemon with ID "0000" and OT "????". I've faced a Scizor in the Battle forum with the move Earthquake. Hacks are, for better or for worse, part of the trading process. It's an inherent risk involved with EVERY possible trade, not just special legendary movie events. It should be a users responsibility to be knowledgable enough to detect hacks, and mods responsibility to monitor what's posted. And banning these trades flat out just causes users to take it to PMs or off-site stuff, where with little/no moderation, hacks will get by and nothing will be done about it.

That being said, I'll just re-iterate before that I really don't see anything wrong with the trade forum. The stickies have been done nicely, I like the individual Pokeon threads. Some increased mod presence would be nice, not because the current moderation is lacking, but simply because the trade forum is so big.

Actually, there's one other thing that would be good. What about a forum event list? I know that the main site has one, but it's not constantly up to date. A forum list could at least be edited by the appropriate staff, and updated as soon as information is discovered.

I think a thread for evolutionary trades would be great.

'Cause, sometimes, you'll arrange with someone to do this simple service, and they'll run off with your pokemon when you trade it to them.

I'm not sure this would be viable for a thread. Most people know the GTS Evolution trick. I think, at best, have a locked sticky stating the steps of how to do the GTS Evolution trick might be helpful though. Kind of like what they have for the PBR section about the Unlockables for that game.

I will volunteer to type this up. When it is completed I will pass it along to SkittyOnWailord, Ellie, or Erik Destler and request it be stickied in the trade forums.

I think a sticky such as the one I stated woud help the users not get their Pokemon's stolen, and help the mods, so that a full, Evolution Trade thread wouldn't be necessary. Everybody wins! :)

You say that sometimes people run off with it, but setting up a specific thread for it won't change that. No matter what rules we set up, ultimately, the only one responsible for your trades and making sure you don't get ripped off is you, and that would still apply with a specific thread, so I really don't see how that's helpful.

"No matter what rules we set up, ultimately, the only one responsible for your trades and making sure you don't get ripped off is you..."

Serebii will allow players to get "Ripped Off" if they aren't responsible for what they are trading, yet Serebii practices a "No Trade" policy with other Pokes (*cougharceuscough*), because they are affraid of hackers ripping people off?

Could you make an attempt to at least be honest with people and let them know it is a case by case basis as to what we here at Serebii will follow the guidelines of, when we are bored, and if we feel like it.

Below would be the example of what I would be talking about forn not all that many posts ago......

Also, I have PM'd SkittyOnWailord about the US Shores rule, and Skitty does not personally agree with it, stating that iwas the majority decision of other mods here at Serebii to have that rule. This rule is in place due to the possibilty of hack being traded.

Though I can see the moderators points on this, any SERIOUS event collectors are going to know the difference. The US Shores rule should be removed. It should be the responsability of the people trading to know EXACTLY what they are trading to each other. What happens on the forums would be a moderators bussiness, what happens while trading Pokes on the Nintendo DS, however, should not be.


All right guys, let's try not to derail this thread. It's suggestions, not debating back and forth :/.

Anyways, the reasoning behind some Pokemon (Arceus, shiny Jirachi, etc) being "forbidden" is that they're in such high demand with so few available that many of them are likely to be hacks. The Movie Arceus will not lift its ban, but if a WiFi event for Arceus (even if it's only for Japan) will lift it because it'll increase the number of available ones greatly. Same thing if there is ever a SRable Jirachi or Celebi event. If you don't like that rule, PM Joe himself because that's his rule.

As for the other Japanese events being available, they're not in as high of a demand. Yes, PCP is popular, but you can still get a regular shiny Pichu, as such it's not in quite as high of a demand. This is the only way to get a legit Arceus so far, so it's in very high demand and it's very unlikely that you'll be able to get a legitimate one (barring AR clones, because SPPf doesn't endorse using AR, even for cloning).

Case and point, everyone must understand the mods here at Serebii will moderate your trade when when, and if, they feel like it.

You say that sometimes people run off with it, but setting up a specific thread for it won't change that. No matter what rules we set up, ultimately, the only one responsible for your trades and making sure you don't get ripped off is you, and that would still apply with a specific thread, so I really don't see how that's helpful.
What I'm saying is that if people are able to find other people who want the same service, then there is less of a chance of them running off during the trade because the other person still has their pokemon. The pokemon, in effect, become collaterl (sp?) so that the other person will hold up their end of the deal.

I'm not sure this would be viable for a thread. Most people know the GTS Evolution trick. I think, at best, have a locked sticky stating the steps of how to do the GTS Evolution trick might be helpful though. Kind of like what they have for the PBR section about the Unlockables for that game.

I will volunteer to type this up. When it is completed I will pass it along to SkittyOnWailord, Ellie, or Erik Destler and request it be stickied in the trade forums.

I think a sticky such as the one I stated woud help the users not get their Pokemon's stolen, and help the mods, so that a full, Evolution Trade thread wouldn't be necessary. Everybody wins! :)

Jesus Christ, did either of you bother reading my post??? Here, I will post a shortened version of what I said I was going to type up before...

Step 1) Put the Pokemon you want to evolve onto the GTS, and ask for something impossible in return (i.e. A level 1-9 Charizard).

Step 2) Search for, and trade for something that is easily obtainable, and a person wouldn't be asking alot for (i.e. A low level Bidoof).

Step 3) When that trade has been completed, take back the Pokemon you ofered for the level 1-9 Charizard. It will Evolve.

*side note* This also works for Pokemon that need held items to evolve, as well. Just make sure they are holding the correct hold item.


REALLY...do you think an entire thread needs to be devoted to the forums for something that is really that easy???

I was responding to Aeros. And you're being quite rude, so stop it if you don't want to get punished. That statement is not true at all. We put rules/guidelines in place to help people not get scammed, but as far as "services" go, we can't do anything if your Pokemon gets stolen. We're not magic and can't take your Pokemon from the other person's game and give it back to you. My main point is that making a thread like that won't change that fact. So stop making assumptions.

ok I am very new around here but I do have a suggestion. I am a MOD for a tcg site (no not a pokemon tcg site) and one of the best additions we had was the i trader system. Basicly what this does is it allows people to give you a plus or a minus and a comment with your trades. If you trade a hacked pokemon then you get a minus. If you are a good trader you get a plus. This way I can look at someone and see that they have a rating of 231 (my current rating on other said site) and I know that that is a person I can trust. I think this can go a long way to helping people out. It also scares off a lot of the hackers or people who steal pokes. Just an idea but it really does work out well.

That sounds like the reputation system, which can be quite abused and was ultimately decided not to be re-started due to some technical error. The thread might still be in the Announcements forum.

And I don't think people deserve to get tarnished if someone unknowingly trades a hacked Pokemon, especially when it isn't an obvious hack (IE isn't on the visible summary of a Pokemon).

Well again if you trade for a poke from someone else then you should let the other person who you are then trading it to that you got it in a trade. This kinda handles that whole problem.
Also it is not nearlly as horrible as the rep system. The rep system is just dumb IMO we tried that as well and quickly got rid of it. The way this system works is before you actually do the trade both people have to let the system know that they are doing the trade. Then after the trade you can rate that person. The best part is once someone gives you a raiting then cannot add to your raiting score. So you can't have two friends try to just constanly bump each other or a circle of ten (as with the Rep system) just sit there and go in a circle of reps bumping. The thing is it is kinda like a safety blanket. For new people to the site. I know I am new and I haven't got a clue as to who is trustworthy and who isn't. So if I trade for a hacked I'm like that sux and I can just write it my notebook and remember not to trade with that person again.

Hey Ellie. Some things may or may not have been said on here before, but I think either way, they need to be said again.

The Serebii trading forums are, well, not that great, which is why this topic exists. Here's a few problems/suggestions I have.

1) The load times are terrible, and it's not my network. It's whomever is hosting the servers, not sure what you can or would do but it's definitely an issue right off the bat.

2) People need to be able to make their own various threads. Instead of me posting in a trade thread for events, let me make my own topic. A new forum for groups like EV, shiny, events would work.

3) I don't think forums for specific gen/Pokemon is so great. I think it could all go into one giant topic for small requests. That seems to clutter up the board but a single topic would work much better.

@Ellie, I'm thinking you would make it like ours where we distinguish certain things and then model the way we make topics after Neoseeker. I think that is ultimately the best thing for a forum like this.


Personally as a trader, because of these issues with the board, I don't use it, as big as a trader I have been in the past. I really hope that some of the staff agrees with me on some issues and allows some changes to be made.

I reckon, that the trade forums should be separated from the battle forums because, I noticed that whenever i check the wifi centre, the heading/ new threads are very often from the battle forum. When this happens, people/new forum users would not be bothered checking the trade forums. By separating both sub-forums, this problem would not exist.

Hi,

i think that if members could have a personal page where they put all thier list, your way to do things could be great.

Folks wouldn't put a fast request and have to do it again 3 pages later if no answer...
We just would have to put our name on the thread and admin could edit first post with name list.
That way, if (for exemple) i'd like to see EV'd pkm, i go on the thread, first page.
Seeing the name witch subscribed here, i visit thier personal page and PM them if interested by something.

are you are suggesting that we wouldn't tell eachother whats in the egg? i REALLY like this idea because you could end up with something pretty good, plus there is the element of surprise. a bonus of this is that you cannot exactly get 'scammed'. For example, if i trade a phione egg and i get a magikarp back, it not actually that bad, all i lost was an egg that can easily be replaced, and also the magikarp could have decent ivs or beneficial nature, so when eveolved is actually pretty.
so yeah, i completeley back this improvement and hope it has been noticed

I think you should have it somewhere that the 4th generation Trade Forum and the 5th Generation trade forum are two completely different things. I just say this, because after BW came out, I've seen people who are offering Zorua and etc., in the 4th generation thread, where Zorua shouldnt exist. Its bound to cause anger and confusion when people are looking through the 4th generation trade forum with a D,P,Pt,Hg,or Ss, and then find out that the person who has the pokemon they want was offering it in the wrong thread since they have it in BW.

Well, I've been trading here a while, and I've noticed a lot of people don't even know where their Pokemon are coming from. So, I suggest a thread to post everyone's original trainers, and ID numbers, AND the username (from a forum) of the original owner. Or, maybe even have a rule saying give username credit unless the Pokemon is yours.

How would this help?
Say a Pokemon is hacked, you can track down the original owner of the Pokemon, and "black list" him/her. And, some Pokemon do not come with Full Redis rights, so you can track down the original owner and ask about Redistribution. This will make trading a low more comfortable if it comes from someone a lot of people trust.

It would also be very good if all our good RNGers to see that thread, so that they can also pick and choose who to message, cause they have the best things to offer! ^_^

I would like to see a thread where you can get helping trading between your fourth gen games. Say I have a shiny torterra on Diamond, and want it on Platinum someone could help me trade it over

or better yet, a thread where you can get help trading from 4th gen to 5th gen, for those of us who only have 1 ds.

I think it should be like the before opinions, where we each post our pokemon and other people can offer that way, making it much easier =3

There is, but it's in the 5th Gen Wifi Center. You can't miss it, as it's with all the other trading threads.

I agree with this.

Also, I think a good idea would be to create a thread exclusively for people who want to get the Jade Orb- with a list of people willing to lend legit Kyogre/Groudon and their lending requirements. There's too many people who could just clone them and make off with legit Pokemon lended to them. In that same thread should be a blacklist of people who have scammed someone before, so they can't do it again.
