You know what the gts needs? An option to search for people who want YOUR pokemon.

Meaning, lets say you have a level 1 pikachu and you want to trade it, you search the GTS for people who are looking for a pikachu and see what they are offering then choose your favorite.

There's just one problem: Level 2 Patrat will become the new Level 1-9 Zekrom.



I don't understand what's the problem. Anyone can get a level 2 Patrat.

Why do I have to move with the crowd of kids that hardly notice I'm around? I work myself to death just to fit in.

The impossible trades wouldn't be such a huge problem if they just let us see more than 9 or whatever results. Let us sift through all the available offers, or at the very least, give us a refresh button that shows you new options so you aren't stuck seeing the same ones.

Then instead of searching for someone who wants it, put it up for trade for what you want? Still no problem. But I've never had a problem with the GTS. I put up a pokemon and check back in a day or two and BOOM, someone gave me what I wanted. But of course using PokeGen is 100x easier anyway.

1. Have a list of all trades that match your search results (up to 20 per page, and you can switch pages)
2. Disallow "LF anything illegal" since you can't put anything illegal up FT.
3. 1 and 2 please

That would be so awesome.

Let's say I have an extra Rayquaza. Let's search for who needs one...
Hey! This guy has a Giratina! Sold!


It would still probably only show Pokemon you've seen, thus unless you already have a Giratina, or was lended one for pokedex's sake, you will likely not see a Giratina this way.

Still this is a very good Idea.

The ''Scam'' flag idea is good too.

Great idea, that.

I think another idea the GTS needs is a 'refresh' option which will allow you to bring up a whole set of different choices. I'm sick of seeing the same results over and over again, and I think that this would allow someone to refresh until they see a fair trade.
