I hope the X & Y Wonder Trade wont be like Black & White (2) GTS!

Seriously, you ever wonder why everyone on Pokemon GTS is so scummy? They want legendaries or insanely high level Pokemon for basic/uncommon Pokemon. I'm sorry I want to trade a Magby for an Elekid. I'm sorry I think that is normal... I hope the Wonder Trade in X & Y wont be like the GTS in Black and White (2), but, it probably will be... -_-

I don't see how when it's pretty much random.

It's random... so it'll be more like...
Gave: bagon
got: bidoof

~90% of the time.

Cool, so I will be filled to the brim with Pidgies and Patrats that I will explode. Awesome...

The reason the GTS is like that is because those trades never get taken down. All of the reasonable trades get traded, while the trolls stick around for all eternity (or until someone hacks a level 1 Mewtwo). It doesn't represent the actual number of people doing it.

It would be nice if there were more filters or if the game analyzed Pokemon you owned and showed trades that matched what you owned.

Well, I for one intend to only put actually decent Pokémon into Wonder Trade.

The reason why those trades are there is cloning. They're all exploiting the cloning glitch and putting up ridiculous requests so they don't actually got through (You'd be amazed how fast proper trades go through actually).

Honestly, even if people find a cloning exploit again, removing the request to seek a Pokémon you haven't seen will make the GTS a bit better, as depositing Pokemon and requesting them does work much better.

Do requests eventually go away if nobody has responded to them in a long period of time?

But I thought the cloning glitch was gone since Platinum? Surely all those people aren't stupid enough to keep trying?
