    I only ever get one visitor per GTS trade I make.

    The dream world, on the other hand, has every single player who's visited my house show up whenever I access it, which makes it a nice, reliable way of getting a lot of visitors.

    Why is it Magnemite... and just Magnemite?

    I'd guess it's because Magnemite is the first genderless Pokemon you have access to in B/W 2, which makes searching for it on the GTS a simpler task.

    Once you get a Magnemite it's easy enough to get more, is the idea.
    Magnet Pull makes Steel types more common, Magnemite is the only steel type in the Complex and so...

    My best guess is people chose Magnemite because it is quite common in the game... and it's a lot easier focusing on one specific Pokemon for a particular gimmick like this.

    I guess... but wouldn't Purrloin or Patrat have worked, too? :/

    Perhaps, but they're still not quite as common as Magnemite in BW2, at least I don't think they are.
    Plus, Magnemite is a little more of an appealing Pokemon overall.

    You definitely have the appeal factor of Magnemite down. I'm pretty sure that Purrloin and Patrat are more common than Magnemite though, in terms of percentage.

    Has anyone managed to get any game record information on another player in the avenue yet?

    I thought that having them as a Dream World friend would work, but it didn't.

    I seem to get the other trainer's game record when you trade Pokemon locally (not GTS).

    It's a simple system, but it lags Nintendo's Servers to the point of disconnection every minute.
    I read that, but still don't understand it.

    And from what I know won't everyone end up with the same shops once they fill their lots?

    I am now at Rank 10 in JA. Magnemite coiling has helped significantly.
    At this rate I should reach a new rank per day.

    Anyway, those random npcs asking questions. I don't think I've found any info on how they work. Anyone know?

    I believe they are there to determine what kind of shop you would open and what kind of shop you'd want to go to when your player gets sent to another Join Avenue. I haven't really seen any in-depth details on it, I believe Serebii has a little:

    I was enjoying using the Join Avenue for completing my Pokedex, namely for Friendship evolutions. However, I found something out that really is angering. Apparently when you buy one of the things to level up a Pokemon, it won't evolve even if it is a level evolution. I wasted ~13300 to level up my Shelgon for it to evolve only to find out it wouldn't.

    Don't get me wrong, the Join Avenue is fun. It was really fun to see myself from three other games in it (I had traded with my Black, White, and Japanese White).

    I don't see anything about them there.

    I was discussing Join Avenue with a friend and they read something about the male ace trainer in your office possibly being the way to determine what shop your npc self makes in others' Join Avenue. I notice as I rank up my Join Avenue, that I got a new option of café. Don't know if my npc does offer to start a café for others, but it seems like it would work that way.

    But yea, I still don't know about the random questioners except that they might share your answers with others?

    Yea, that's not the same thing I'm talking about. Those are when you talk to wandering npcs and select recomend. I'm talking about the npcs who are pretty stationary and ask you questions.

    That still seems a little...I dunno. I noticed that, at least for the fans and my npc from Black version, that while the shop they want to open is set, what they are looking for is randomly suggested. What I mean is, if I save before going in to my Join Avenue, I can keep sring for them to want to go to certain shops.

    But again, haven't tryed it, I think, with any npcs of real players using B2W2.

    I doubt that is the case. You can get people just by interacting with them through any online thing. Dream World has probably gotta cause the largest influx for me. After doing a bunch of GTS negotiations has to be a distant second depending on how many people I want to attempt to trade with. Most people trading there wants shinies though. That is really difficult considering after playing 3 different titles in the past 2 months I have yet to see a single shiny.

    I only have 5 badges, but I've gotten distracted by the Join Avenue. The Magnemite Chain is crazy, just watching GTS trades on the PGL shows that. Soooooooo many magnemites are traded. It's at level 13ish right now. Dream World is good for hits, so is GTS negotiations as you only have to connect to the person for it to count. I have 2 gyms, 3 florists, lottery, shop. For the 8th I wanna get another florist so I have florists from all 4 games (the 8th slot is currently a dupe of a higher ranked florist). I wanna complete the berry dex (as much as it can be completed), though that means 203 battles on subway >.<

    One thing that bugs me though is "I want to go there! you know there!"- is there a way to know which shop they're referring to?

    People will pass through your Avenue every day (the exact amount depends on your Rank) and you can Invite them to open a shop or Recommend them to an existing shop to up the Shop's popularity points and Ranking (which extends the options they sell you).
    The people that pass through your Avenue will either be Fans (NPCs that have preset shops they can open; when you recommend them to other shops they give a % of an actual recommendation) or it will be an actual player.
    You get players to pass through your avenue by:
    -Passing them with the C-Gear
    -Trading with them through GTS
    -Having a person visit your Dream World home
    -Wireless/IR communications in general

    They want to go to a male shopkeeper.

    Even vaguer is "Take me somewhere! Anywhere!", since that implies they have no preference in shops whatsoever, when they again want to go to a male shopkeeper.
