GTS is a Gobal System allowing players from all over the world to trade. Yet finding a good pokemon can be hard, and sometimes very random. What trade stands out to you ?

The best trade I've done was to get a Japanese 10th anniversary Celebi. I can't actually remember what I traded for it, but it was nothing that special. I'm not sure if it's actually legit but all the details match those of the event, so who knows!

The most annoying trades are ALMOST ALL OF THEM! I'd rather they completely banned legendary Pokemon from the GTS rather than have almost everyone want a level 100 Arceus for their Caterpie. It's really annoying when you just want a basic Pokemon and everyone wants ridiculous things. It's a shame too, since the GTS could be so much more useful.

I've only really used the GTS to get version-exclusive Pokemon. Since everyone on there wants stupid trades, I put up the companion to that version-exclusive Pokemon myself (eg. Misdreavus for Murkrow) and just wait. I usually get a response within a few hours which tells me there are plenty of people out there who just want a proper trade! xD Aside from that, I don't really use the GTS.

I have found the Gts has somewhat annoying... its just crazy the trades that are offered... why would someone trade a level 100 dragonite for a level 35 miltank... (that was just a random example) it's just bonkers... I personally do not use gts... I want a fair trade, not a redilous trade.

I once got a german lv:100 Rampardos for a lv:40 gardevoir, and i got a tyranitar for a feebas. some traders are really generous, i think they are trying to compleate the pokedex and dont really care about using or training the rare pokemon they are trading away

Its annoying how you cant browse trought all the offers so you can see Those few ones that are actually worth it.

GTS is really annoying. I wish there was restrictions on them somehow, and the majority of the Pokemon are just hacked ones anyway. Really frustrating.

My favorite trades are all the level 10 magikarps for some legendary Pokemon.

I got a shiny eevee because someone was trying to do the clone trick… using gts… same with palika for my diamond game.

Now though it seems you need to deposit a pokemon to find decent trades, well that's always been the case for me. Dx

I will never forget the moment when I cloned my Groudon in my Pokémon Emerald Version and put a clone on to the Global Trade Station, looking for a Chimchar. I owned a Torterra and an Empoleon at the time, so my impulsive yearning to obtain a Chimchar got the better of me. Plus, I knew I would get a Chimchar if I offered a Pokémon such as Groudon. The greatest part about it was that the Chimchar was from Japan!

But Pokémon Trainer Sarah is correct when she states that the players who use the Global Trade Station are very unyielding towards others in the sense that they want a level 100 Arceus for something as simple as a Lapras at level 42. What always gets me is when a Pokémon is nicknamed that of a different Pokémon (i.e. a Chikorita with the nickname "Sableye") and it's sprite shows up as the Pokémon it is nicknamed after...

And what was also mentioned earlier here is the fact that players can be banned from the Global Trade Station. Indeed, it is true that this can - and will - happen. About five years ago, I bore witness to a user on here whose save data was erased when attempting to perform the Global Trade Station cloning glitch in either their Pokémon Diamond Version or their Pokémon Pearl Version. The cloning process via the Global Trade Station is truly a matter of gambling one's own luck. One can look at it as a roulette game of sorts, for the outcome could keep you safe, but there is always the slight chance that you will come undone. That is why it is wise to either perform the cloning glitch as perfectly as possible or not perform it at all, especially if you are worried about your save data being erased.

No, a lot of people trading hacked pokemon on the GTS are kind of smart. unlike some kid trying to trade a foretress caught at lv:46 at victory Road in a cherish ball for example, they make the pokemon seem legit, if they are trying to trade a flake lv:100 lets say altaria, they will capture a swablu first in a common pokeball and rare candy it to lv:100. the GTS will recognise that this pokemon can be caught where it was caught, and in a level it is availiable in, they will not be banned, but of you try that first thing, you will be banned, foretress or pineco can not be captured in victory Road or at lv:46, foretress can not be in a cherish ball either, so the GTS will understand that this is fake and the player will be banned.

I completely agree.

Sometimes I'll try trading for females in the hope that one of them will have a dream world ability I'm looking for. I've gotten a few of the ones I wanted that way.

Other than that I use it mostly for collecting pokemon which are missing from my pokedex. I just put up a bunch of freshly hatched Zoroa or starters and ask for something simple in exchange. The next time I check the GTS the trade has always gone through.
