Title says it all.
GTS Negotiations too.
Just a few minutes ago I traded a Non-EVed Non-Shiny Non-Female LVL 1 Tepig for a Shiny Quagsire...

Random Zorua with 1 in all IVs for a 31 all Ivs Conkeldurr Brave. Felt kind of bad for the person on the other end but I lost the ability to care now.

Welp, the other day I traded a Reshiram for an Espeon over the GTS.. but it turned out to be Japanese w/ Magic Bounce, so I was rather pleased. :D

I've actually ad pretty normal gts trades, granted I don't use it that much. For example, I mainly use it to find pokemon that evolve by trading or version exclusives.

Normal GTS: i put a lv1 tepig for a LV100 JAPANESE ZEKROM O: and its proper legit!

Negotiations: Somebody gave me this hacked porygon-z shiny lv100..... but i didnt know at the time. so i offered that and got a LV100 JAPANESE GROUDON :D

But i do feel a little sorry for the person who gave me the groudon, but it wasn't my fault cause i didnt know!

And the person with the zekrom must have been desperate

legit RNG-ed shinies with 4 egg moves, for something literally worthless, like a Horsea or a Magikarp of any gender & any level

and it already happens FOUR times. In fact that's how I got my shiny Drifloon, Barboach, Corsola, and Sableye.

The Drifloon, Corsola, and Sableye also comes with DW ability.

lol, for me at least, "tales" implies it's not true, when in reality it's true :p
and yeah you knew about it, but that doesn't mean I can't post it here~


anyway, I just remember, two weeks ago someone offered a DW Skarmory (which I didn't have yet at that time) for a Giratina, so just for fun I look for Giratina offers, and found a lv 76 one that requests something I couldn't remember anymore, but it's definitely not a legendary, and it's at any level & any gender. Took the Giratina offer, then trade the Giratina away for the Skarmory :D

I recall getting a Lv100 shiny Darkrai for something like a Zekrom (I think).

It was probably hacked, but I was rather happy.

You have absolutely no way of telling if it's definitely legit. That's why I stay away from the GTS.

Poke_Mania97

well the hack check thread said it was legit, so if thats not legit, then i dunno what is.

Pokémon can easily be hacked and seem legit. It may appear to be fine, but there's no guarantee that it is.

I've bred the Zorua and offered the offspring on the GTS - I've gotten lots of Pokemon, including Tynamo, Petilil, and Deino.

Platinum. Level 100 Lucario for level 1 Starley!(I gave up the starley but it knew steelwing and had tm 50(overheat) attached to it.) That was best trade I ever participated in. I then traded Lucario for a lv 87 Raichu(worst trade I ever participated in.) :(

White. I got a shiny Shelmet for my regular Karablast :) my lucky day I got a Shiny Accelgor

Nothing else is worth mentioning, except I got a female dw Vulpix(max s.atk and speed IVs) for my regular male Zorua.

This guy gave me a Shiny Pokémon for something rubbish a while back on Negos. The thing is, he just kept spamming the smiley button, and refused my other shinies. So I thought, oh well, not losing anything, and just traded with him. Then he slept out "THANK YOU" in Unown after that, smileyed again, then left. Pretty weird and something like the ones you'd find in a creepypasta, but nope, nothing wrong. The only thing I can remember about that Pokémon is that it's a Ghost-Type... I think I traded it away.

back when i used the GTS i would put up lvl one Oshawotts for legendary pokemon to use in negotiations and within a day someone would always trade me the legenday i was after. Sometimes, i even got a shiny legendary!!!! Shiny regigias, shiny mewtwo, shiny Darkrai, shiny heatran, shiny Moltres, shiny lugia i would get them all!!! it got to a point when i would just take an hour out of my day and breed 30 or so oshawotts to put up and hope to get a random shiny legend. i also got an event regigigas for a random lvl 1 oshawott. o halcyon days of GTS tradeing *nostalgic sigh*

Unfortunately, that's the only decent trade I've had in ages since everyone else wants impossible trades...

Ghost_MissingNo
28th October 2011, 12:14 PM
Not really that weird, but I put a legit shiny Geodude on the GTS and got a legit level 65 non-shiny Reshiram for it about an hour later. I just didn't think anyone would want to trade that for a Geodude, but I guess someone was browsing, saw the shiny Geodude and immeditaly wanted to get rid of their Reshiram for it. I hope they don't have any regrets about it now, considering the fact the Geodude was only level 11, lol. :P

Shine
28th October 2011, 12:50 PM

Actually, it might be a spare Reshiram. I once traded a spare Giratina away for a Zekrom even though I already have a Zekrom, just so I can trade the second Zekrom away for a lv 10 DW Skarmory :p

was a "worth it" trade, since the DW Skarmory is legit, has Jolly Nature, and 31 Speed IV.

I got a lv 50 reshiram for it, it doesn't seem to be hacked, it's kinda crazy o.O
maybe it's cloned, but I don't know any cloning cheat, so it's maybe the normal reshiram. cool.

oh, and I got a lv100 Arcanine for a lv 1 spiritomb xD

Gentlemen.

Just yesterday, I came upon a level 50 zekrom on offer in the GTS All that guy wanted was a charmander.

I was all, "Hey! I have a charizard! Let's get a ditto up in this and make charmanders!"

So that's what I did. I got a brand new charmander and then went back to the GTS, whereupon I promptly discovered that the offer was for a female charmander.

Well. That was annoying.

So I went back outside and made my charizard breed more charmanders until one of them was a girl. I think it was the 7th one, took me about half an hour. I then went back to the GTS, and noted that the offer was still there, which is cool, and started up the exchange.

Except that the trade had already happened, but with somebody else. So now I'm stuck with a female charmander (and six male ones, and a tropius because I had to clear my backlog of eggs in order to shove a charizard and a ditto into that day care centre). This made me rather miffed off.

So, out of spite, I put up the female charmander anyway, and asked for a zekrom in exchange. The damn charmander could rot inside the GTS for the week or however long it takes for offers to expire.

The next day, I check the GTS again, and was extremely surprised to find a zekrom in there waiting for me. It looks pretty legit, too.

So, yeah. A level 1 female charmander for a zekrom. Go figure.


I put in a level 1 Oshawott for a Thundurus and got one the next day. I guess Oshawott is that awesome.Totally doing this next. Lightning shall strike twice.

3rd November 2011, 9:44 AM
I put up a level 70 Hydreigon (not EV trained, was part of my ingame team) for a Zebstrika any level, I got a shiny level 32 Zebstrika.

I don't care if it's hacked or not, I keep all my GTS shinies. (yes, even the F*** YOU!!! level 2 Regigigas someone was spamming the GTS with back when Platinum wasn't even out, also Runnybutt the Dialga xD)

Then, I got a level 100 Zekrom for a level 50 Charizard, an untouched shiny Deoxys for a level 100 shiny Rayquaza (lucky, shiny for a shiny!)

Annnd another pretty pretty Reshiram for a Snivy! <3

Ghost_MissingNo
5th November 2011, 6:18 PM
I got a level 100 Shiny Deoxys a couple of days ago for a level 71 Steelix. Although it looks legit, I've got a feeling 95% of the shinies on the GTS are hacked. :/ I've never once seen a shiny in ANY one of my games and I've been playing since Gold and Silver (although I've gotten quite a few shinies now from friends and trades), the only shiny I've seen is the red Gyrados, but that doesn't count. That are just too many shinies on the GTS for them to be legit, I see shinies on there everday including a lot of shiny legendaries.

And as much as people are going to hate me for this, people are probably only getting a Zekrom for a level 1 Charmander because the Zekrom is hacked and doesn't mean anything to the person who has it. No one in their right mind would actually trade a legit Zekrom for a Lv.1 Charmander, even if they happedned to be a 7 year old kid.
Sad but true, and I think it's the only reason why all these 'weird trades' are happening.

Edit:

I decided to breed shiny versions of all the starter Pokemon. Got a Charmander, now working on Squirtle. So far, I have an English version and a Japanese version of each gender starter except for a female Tepig. I ended up with two Japanese Tepig and decided to trade the female one on the GTS asking for another female. I got back another Japanese Tepig! I think someone was messing with me so I put it back up there. Let's see if I get another Japanese female Tepig.

ETA: I got two more Japanese female Tepig! I swear someone in Japan is just messing with me for whatever reason!

That might have been me. I once did trade away a level 100 Shiny Deoxys, and if memory serves, it was indeed for a Torchic. It was while I was going crazy trying to get one with Speed Boost. The Deoxys had 31 in every IV, leading me to believe it was hacked anyway.

Heh, I was going to start doing the Unown keyboard thing once I've collected all the letters. I'm not unique! Aaaaaa!

Anyway, not a trade I've made, but there's a shiny Weezing named "POKEMON" on the GTS. I'd totally take it if it weren't for the fact that it's asking for a level 9 or lower Zekrom. >> There's also one that has a name that looks like someone slapped a keyboard (DGfRH or something weird like that).

I once put up an extra Milotic I had, asking for Victini. I didn't think I would ever make such an unequal trade, but lo and behold, a week later, I found a Japanese Victini waiting for me. I have since EV trained it and changed its moves, but I'm pretty sure that it's legitimate (it's not in a weird ball or anything).

Now I put up my extra Pokemon that I bred looking for shinies or a certain nature, and I ask for unobtainable Pokemon from previous generations. I'm almost done with the Kanto section of the Pokedex.

Lol thats smart you should try gts negotiation it's faster than gts and forums are sometimes useless when it comes to completing pokdex due to how stingy people are with their pokes but in gts negotiations you get regular people looking for normal trades well some do wave hacks around but there easy to spot like a lv 10 shiny haxorus xD it had me laughing so hard when i saw one

Honeyichigo
10th November 2011, 4:32 PM

I put a Lv.1 Eevee into GTS one day looking for a Wish Maker Jirachi, really didn't think it would happen,. Like two days later, to my surprise, I had a Jirachi waiting for me. Although it wasn't a Wish Maker one it was a Daisuki Club Jirachi, and it was UT! Another day I was acting silly and put up my Growlithe for a Victini, (I'm pretty sure you can guess what happened). But, both my Growlithe and Eevee had DW abilities and good natures so, I guess it was a fair trade! :)

I remember in 2007 when D/P came out in NA. I had 2 DS's and both games. I quickly rushed to get the Spiritomb, and bred it like mad. I had about 20 Spiritomb, and put them on the GTS for Dialga, Palkia, Deoxys, etc. I quickly received them lol...

I think there are some people who know how to change sprites while using the GTS, because if you search the GTS enough, you will often find a sprite that does not match its species name. For example, today I searched for Lucario, and I found one match that has a SPECIES name (not nickname) of Lucario, while the sprite is of Reshiram. I'm not sure if this is the result of a hacker or if it is the GTS messing up. If anyone knows what this is about, I'd love to hear the explanation.

Anyway, regarding strange GTS trades, I also often change my Trainer card to say "I'm looking for COLOR CHANGE" when using GTS Negotiations...you'd be surprised how willing people are to give up their shinies. I've traded normal Pokemon for a shiny Ducklett, Onix, Tangela, and Milotic on Negotiations.

So that's what that means on a trainer card? I've traded with a lot of people on Negotiations who had that on their card. I was starting to wonder if it sounded funny in one of the other languages or something.

Gah... I personally find the people who have that on their trainer card annoying because they usually just sad-face spam anything that isn't shiny (even if it's something decent) like a spoiled brat... >=(

I give out shinies to people on the GTS all the time, but never to people who are blatantly asking for them. =P

As for good trades on my end, I once got a Japanese DW Timid female Eevee with all 31 IVs off the GTS. Don't remember what I traded for it, but it wasn't anything special.^__^;

Well, I promise you that I have *NEVER* sad-face spammed anyone in my life. I absolutely HATE when people do that to me. More than once I have offered unobtainable or rare Pokemon to people, and they sad-face spam me. It's very discouraging. I can't figure out what they want. I've even "offered" legendaries and shinies to these people to no avail. I guess they just want to cause problems. I'm not sure what they're asking for.

Regarding trainer cards, I really appreciate when people have on their card what they're looking for, so it can be the first thing I offer. Usually these people are so happy to get what they wanted that they'll give me shinies or legendaries for them - I've traded a Trainer Card request for a Tornadus and a Cobaloin so far. I couldn't believe that they'd be willing to give me that. That's why I always put either a Pokemon I want, or "color change" on my card, so that people know what to offer me IF they want to. I am just as willing to trade non-shinies as I am shinies.

Also, if people are exceptionally nice, or if I notice that they seem "poor" (i.e., they don't have much in their boxes, and so all they can offer me is Blitzles or Pidoves), I give them unobtainables and the Kanto starters for free. One girl spammed the heart button for about three minutes when I traded her a Charmander, Squirtle, and Bulbasaur for Lillipups. So I guess you could say that sometimes, I'm the one who, to them, is making a strange trade by giving away rare Pokemon for nothing.

it's nice to know some people are checking the trainer card. my trainer card says something about my yes will be lillipup. cuz well that's the pokemon i'm collecting and i swear. sometimes it takes forever to get people to put that lillipup in the trade box. only had one person who didn't figure it out ... sad faced me forever and left... oh well. if i notice they are trading from a country i haven't gotten one from yet... i'll offer legendaries for it. cuz some are so hard to find in the gts and i don't want them to leave. ( i hate when the gts has only reshrim lv 9 or lower or whatver in the request side) why do people do that!?!? can you even get those pokemon? or a lv9 or lower of the evolved forms that don't respond to stones... so no evolving for you... seems stupid... especially when they are offering level 2 lillipups..

Sorry, I didn't mean people like you, who have that in their trainer card but are nice. But from from my experience, most of the people looking for COLOR CHANGE are usually the type of people who spam a bunch of hacked level 100 shinies and sadface anything else. Of course, they're not all like that, obviously, but I've run into enough annoying shiny-hack spammers to let out a groan whenever I see someone with the color change thing in their trainer card. =/

For the record, my trainer card says "I wonder if person is yummy..." XDD

I do sad-face things if it's not something that I'm interested in, but I only do it once, not ten billion times like some people. Admittedly, communicating in happy faces, sad faces, hearts, and explanation marks is quite challenging. It's often hard to decipher what people are trying to say. D=

Man, I've done so many GTS trades, I can't remember which were/was weirdest.

A weird trade I remember seeing was a 50+ level shiny Meganium for something like a Tepig. Also, a level 100 Lucario for a really low level pokemon.

Oh, another weird one was when I requested a female Eevee, and got one with the DW ability. It appears to be directly from Entree Forest.

But they dont let you trade obviously hacked pokemon on the gts. But what if gf realeased a zek/resh egg eventWhat constitutes obviously hacked? I once received a shiny Girafarig at level 100, caught at that level in Pinwheel forest, so there's got to be some way of getting around it.

Once, I'm not sure if you guys would find this to be a bad trade or not, I found a shiny croagunk on the gts asking for a deoxys level 100. I had been searching for just a normal croagunk forever and since the level 100 deoxys I had was traded for anyway I did it. It's pretty legit id say. I still have it.

the date does not matter. In fact, the date is the most useless thing in determining whether a Pokemon is the result of a hack or not.






anyway, just two days ago....shiny Skorupi for any Magikarp.
And the Skorupi is legit too.

Though I kinda regret what I did, I gave away my Marvelous Bridge Magikarp, instead of my lv 87 Magikarp from Sinnoh's Resort Area lake.
I can get another high-level Magikarp easily, but for a Marvelous Bridge one, I have to wait for the "third game".....

IVs are pretty good, it's Timid, and it has Extrasensory and DP. And it's legit, surprising for such a ridiculous offer on my part.

I got an event Shiny Hydreigon on my Japanese Black and wanted to transfer it to my English Black, however I don't have two consoles so I always do it by GTS. I didn't know it's not possible to trade events over GTS, but anyway.

I put something really common, from what I remember, it was a Hoothoot probably (I have around 50 of them) and asked for a lv.70+ Hydreigon (specified the level so it would be easier for me to search on the japanese version). After trying, I discovered I can't trade events over GTS and gave up, forgetting about my Hoothoot.


One day I opened up GTS to see that I got a lv100 Hydreigon... caught in Opelucid City at lv.41.

I already have the data for Reshiram, but I kind of wanted to have a Reshiram to keep on my White game so I started searching for one. Found one that was asking only for a male rapidash. I didn't have one and I couldn't get one quickly, so I started searching up Zekroms just for fun. I found one that was asking for any male paras, so I quickly exited the GTS, bred my Parasect, and hatched a nice little male, then ran back to the GTS and managed to trade a level 1 Paras for a level 100 Zekrom.

Then I figured I'd push my luck and search for male Rapidashes, and found one that was looking for Zekroms. I figured "easy come, easy go" so I took a chance and traded my new Zekrom for that Rapidash, went back to the Reshiram I originally saw and and...
...then I found out that that Reshiram was glitched and can only be seen, not traded for. So I essentially wasted that lucky Zekrom.

But then I saw a Reshiram that was looking for a Shaymin, traded this extra Shaymin I had for it, and went away happy. (:

The GTS for Diamond/Pearl/Platinum/HeartGold/SoulSilver is not connected to the GTS for Black/White. Otherwise it would put some restriction on trading Pokémon that knew new moves or held new items, as well as Pokémon coming from the older games holding TMs. Neither of which is the case.

- Australia: Covered..
- Asia: Japan, Singapore, South Korea, and Afghanistan.
- Africa: None..

So yeah, if somebody on here is from either a Latin American country, or African country, (or one of the aforementioned European countries) who is willing to trade with someone from the Netherlands, just for kicks, just PM me..

Lol, my favorite globe-trade was a random pokemon for a Sewaddle from Afghanistan! :P

Also, there was a Terrakion on trade for any level/female Reuniclus.. I have one, but I didn't trade. Was that a bad decision? It was a Modest Nature, Magic Guard, on a high'ish level, with HP-Electric.. Kinda felt like it was probably the best I'd ever have. So attachment won over a legendary..

Pretty Much every pokemon i find on the GTS, everyone wants a Lvl 9 and under Legendary

Or a LV9 fully evolved starter pokemon.

I still wonder when the GTS will be fixed...

Gen 4 I can understand, it being new and all - but Gen 5 is still riddled with the same wanted pokemon at Unobtainable [Legal] levels. You'd think some simple coding would make such things impossible on Legendaries and pokemon that evolve, and make the feature actually usable . >->

I got a Lv. 100 shiny Blastoise on GTS Negotiations a few days ago for a low level pokemon. Of course, it was a hack, it was met at Lv. 100 on Route 14. But I had figured before we traded that it was hacked, since the guy had showed me a Lv. 9 Reshiram or Zekrom, don't remember which. I don't battle competitively, so it doesn't bother me, and plus, it's a new dex entry for me.

Gave a girl a 50 UT Hasty Latias for a no egg moves 1 Axew. Why? Because someone wanted a female Axew for their 100 Onix. Their person still showed up when I went to make the trade but someone got the trade before me. One of those glitchy ones that don't disappear. Oh well, at least I made a girl happy with a Latias on Christmas morning.

Edit: Actually went by and searched for 100 Onix again and that "traded" character is still there x.x what a tease. GTS is massively slow during this holiday.

I thought trades like that meant that on the other end, the person didn't pick them up. Like in this case, the Onix has gone to someone for an Axew, but the Axew has not been picked up yet.

I think the weirdest trade I ever made was more weird for the process. Found a legit shiny darkrai, they wanted something random for it. Went to find it, they wanted something else. Etc., etc., until I finally got the Darkrai. There were about 6 pokemon involved in the whole process, and when you cut out all the middle-men it ended up being something like a rapidash for shiny darkrai.

And you can get anything for a zekrom or reshiram, which are fairly easy to get.

Given that shininess is determined by your trainer ID/SID, and that that changes for an egg if it hatches after being traded (from the ID of the person who got it to the one of the person who hatched it)... what did you expect?

the GTS for some reason prevents you from trading them, but does not prevent people from requesting them.




Anyway, the weirdest ever trade for me will always be that Shiny Barboach for any Magikarp (I'm the one getting the Barboach).
The Barboach is legit too.





Then there's this weird trade, weird in a different way

I was going to trade a Sky Form Shaymin, the GTS rejects it due to the Form, and it automatically changes into Land Form.
Since it is already in Land Form, the trade should go through now, right?
Wrong, the game (or the GTS) for some reason does not detect that it already changes into Land Form, until I put it into a box and take it again.

Can someone explain to me why the trade offers on the GTS are so moronic? 'Ah, my level 2 Patrat? Of course, you can have it... in exchange for a level 100 Reshiram. Sound good?' ...no?

That or the offers are impossible to meet without hacking. Nobody has a level <9 Venasaur, so why ask for one?

Yeah, I've done similar things a few times before. When I got tired of looking for people with Reshiram on the Serebii Chat and people that offered it on GTS. I just sent a level 1 Cryogonal for any Reshiram and got it the day after. I hatched some more Cryogonal and sent them too to GTS so I was sure that I would get atleast one legit Reshiram, and I got one in return every time.

Last night I saw a Japanese Jirachi up for trade, and the owner was looking for a Swoobat. I figured it was a hack, but since I wasn't much fond of my Swoobat, I thought I'd go for it anyways. I checked it out after and all the stats coordinated with a Japanese Daisuki Club Jirachi, and pokecheck said it was good, although it seemed to be a clone. Either way, I'm pleased to have it! (I hope Heart-Face enjoys his new home).

The weirdest thing that happened to me though was on my 4th Gen games. I was trying to trade two Pokemon between HeartGold and Platinum, but I only had one DS, so I was using the GTS. I put up a Celebi and was asking for a Shaymin, figuring I could switch games quick enough to make the trade. Turns out I was wrong, and someone swooped in and gave me a Level 100 Japanese Shiny Shaymin for it. I thought it must have been a hack, but again, all the stats checked out and it can switch forms. Either it is a very good hack, or an RNG clone, but either way I was like... "o.O... wut...."

I feel kind of bad though because the Celebi was a little sketchy.

I had no idea what I was doing, but I had such good luck running into very generous folks, mostly Japanese. I ended up with an Oshawott (so I played the entirety of the rest of the game with two starters on my team), Deino, several Eevees, and a Rotom - all traded for stuff like Scraggy and Pidove.
