This is a split board - You can return to the Split List for other boards.

Anyone else think the trading boards are pretty useless now?

Yes, im talking about friend safaris. And theres gonna be alot of people who are going to pipe up with the smart arse comment "its still trading" well: its not. The trading board should be used to trade pokemon, not Safaris. Some people have no intention at all of using the trading boards for safaris. I use the boards to look for specific pokemon that i want, or one that im trading, theres always the GTS, but its hard to get certain natures and specify what i want.

I enjoy the new Safari feature. I think its great. But i do think the Safaris should have their own board. The community for this game is massive, the forums are rendered kinda useless because of the flood of a mix of safari and trade topics that if someones looking for one or the other one of them inteferes.

about 1/10 posts are about trading actual pokemon. 9/10 are for Safaris half of which are crying for a Ditto Safari. People dont even ask for the specific pokemon anymore they just want the safari. Therefore i agree

Safari posts belong on the trading board so they don't clog up this board. Quit whining.

(Also, the search function exists for a reason.)

Seriously... I mean, would it have been so hard to just make a Friend Safari Board? It's obviously popular/wanted enough. :|

Yeah my topic about friend safari just got modded for being "off topic" which is ridiculous, trades should be about pokemon trading only, at least make a friend safari board
