Default What Are Non-Redistributable Pokemon?

I was browsing some very old trading threads and I then remembered the term. I had never know what it meant as a kid, and still have no idea as a teen. Why can't they be traded again? What causes them to be this way? Is it that the OT doesn't want them traded?

I think they are event pokemon that won't be distributed via Nintendo Events anymore.

I think it means Pokemon that you receive that can't be traded to other people. The question is, why?

i never heard the term before, but could it mean it is a trial trade? i remember then i traded pokemon with some friends as a kid, we had `king trades´ and `queen trades´, a king trade was a non regrettable trade, you cant force the other person to trade it back to you, but a queen trade was a sort of trial, you could trade back whenever you want to, and they often had a time limit, for example, if you queentraded a pokemon, you had one week to regret, if you should happen to regret after the time limit has expired, you have no authority to get it back, it is now officially your pokemon and it is up to the other person if he/she wishes to trade it back to you. could an non-reddistributalbe pokemon be a pokemon you cant forward to others in case your trade partner should happen to regret?

There is nothing about the Pokemon that prevents you from trading it. They are just asking that you please not make copies and trade it to everyone else, leaving them with nothing to use in their own trades.

Basically since Pokemon can be cloned, I could breed a really good Pokemon, trade it to you, and you could make a million clones, host a giveaway, and give that Pokemon to every person on the forums for free. Now if I want to trade with someone else, I have nothing to offer them, since they could just get my Pokemon from someone else.

Non-redistributable just means that I am asking you not to do that, and saying that the Pokemon I give you is just for your use. It is sort of like if I made a CD and sold you one but asked you to please not make 100 copies and give them to all of your friends. There is nothing really preventing you from doing that. I am just asking.

Ah I see! I thought it meant if you clone then trade it it would destroy your save file for some reason, ha ha. Thanks!
