This a thread to talk about the various highs and lows revolving around the GTS.

Were you lucky enough to get a good Pokemon? Want to share frustrating stories about all the people wanting untradeable Pokemon? (I know I do!)

Share your stories here!

The whole GTS is annoying... the most asinine concept ever...

The GTS is a cesspool. But, it can be tweaked. By preventing untradeable Pokemon to be asked for on the GTS.

It would probably cause a downtick in GTS activity too, but it would be for the better to weed out all those cheapskates asking for event legends for Com-Mons and the like.

Exactly, they need a tier trading system... common pokemon can only be traded for common pokemon. Uncommon for Uncommon/rare, rare for rare/legendary, and legendary for event exclusive legendary... if they were able to implicate that system into the GTS, then I think things would be a lot better

Okay so I've been looking into the GTS and supposedly you can get good results if you deposit pokemon instead of seeking them. I tested this out yesterday, I put a Riolu with pokerus in there saying it has pokerus and requesting a mewtwo. Guess what I got when I just logged onto the gts? That's right, a mewtwo ^_^ Just so you know when seeking pokemon there's a way to make it so only non legendary trades show up.

I spent over an hour trying to get a Japanese ditto on the GTS. Nearly every time I refreshed to search for a new ditto or check to see if one of my own was traded with one, I got stuck with another US ditto or someone with a ridiculous claim like Xerneas or Yveltal for one. I ended up with a japanese ditto in the end, but it had horrible IVs, so I ended up using Pokegen to make a Perfect IV Japanese Ditto and I have no regrets. xD

Somebody, and I think they still do, is offering a shiny Jirachi for a Spearow, just for a giveaway. My sister and I only have Fearow as all of our Spearows have evolved!
