I am sick and tired of going to approve your shops just to see that you haven't followed the rules. So I'm writing this up as a clarification as to why your trade shop probably isn't approved. I strongly recommend you read this over so that you understand it. If you don't, pm myself or another trade mod and we can clarify it for you.

About 99% of threads that aren't approved are because they don't follow the second rule.

This means 10 individual Pokemon each. If there is anything under 10 Pokemon that you are either offering or looking for then your shop will not be approved.

Basically what you need to know from this is:

1) ITEMS AND SERVICES DO NOT COUNT TOWARDS THE TEN POKEMON RULE.
2) YOU NEED TO BE SPECIFIC WHEN YOU OFFER/LOOK FOR POKEMON


Statements like Shinies do not count towards your ten Pokemon list because you are not being specific. However, if you say something like Shiny Torchic, Shiny Sylveon and Shiny Mamoswine, you've already reached 3/10 of the requirement! The same goes for IV Bred Pokemon and other ambiguous cases like Kanto Pokemon, Starters, etc. Just add the names, it's a little bit more work but it's easier for everyone.

Now I'll actually add some examples:

Offering:

Charmander 31/31/31/31/31 IVs x5
Shiny Torchic x5

Looking For
Swinub/Piloswine/Mamoswine
Eevee/Vaporeon/Jolteon/Flareon/Umbreon/Espeon/Leafeon/Glaceon/Sylveon
The following post is perfectly Fine because it lists At least 10 Pokemon in the offering and looking for section. While it's only two species offered, the user in question has 5 of each, therefor making it ten! And while the user is also only looking for two evolution chains, the amount of Pokemon in these chains make up the requirement for ten.

Offering:
Yveltal
Xerneas
Charizard
Milotic
Volbeat
Oddish x5

Looking For:
Legendaries
Gogoat
Crobat
Starters
Absolite
Charizardite Y
This shop would be denied. The offering section is perfectly fine, but the looking for section does not have 10 Pokemon. It only has 2 Pokemon, Crobat and Gogoat. Legendaries and starters are Not Specific and do not count towards the 10 Pokemon requirement. Neither do Absolite and Charizardite Y, because they are items and not pokemon.
