Just gave my Xerneas away in a Wonder Trade and got back a Wobbuffet...

You put Xerneas in a Wonder Trade.

Wonder Trade.

Hey, at least you didn't get a Bunnelby!

Not quite sure I get the facepalms. Is it 'cause I sent a legendary? True story, I usually just KO legendaries for the XP because I just really don't care about them, but since you get XP in this game for capturing, I figured I might as well try for it to add it to my Pokedex in case I ever decide I care about that. First try with a Quick Ball.

It's impossible to not catch Xerneas (if you're playing X).

I take what I get in Wonder Trade, usually evolve it, then send it back on. Gives me a fuzzy feeling that someone is looking at that Alakazam and thinking 'WTF?'...

Stupid decision TC. You just encouraged the darn guy. He's gonna keep giving crap now.

Depends. That's only what happened if they're a bad person. If they're a good person, they'll feel bad about it and make an effort to give more awesome stuff.


Or he's a little kid that doesn't understand the full concept of Wonder Trade and takes it as some sort of whacky in game lottery. Either way you didn't lose out on anything if you weren't expecting something major traded in turn. After all GTS is for when you want something, WT is for when you're feeling generous and looking forward to the surprise factor. Plus...pokemiles.

Well, you can't KO him, you are required to capture him for the story.

I gave away my first Dialga(random GTS) and Manaphy from Ranger(as a promise) before I ever had the means to clone, and to this day I still don't feel bad about either.

I got a Jolly Speed Boost Torchic with 5 max IVs when I sent over a Togepi. With Hustle. :(

At least the TC didn't come here to complain.

Really? Huh, go figure.

I really wasn't. Some friends told me I should give ti a try because it's Wonder-Trade Wednesday and apparently a lot of folks use it to unload starters and not-quite-perfect breeding experiments, so I figured it was worth a shot, but no big loss. I also traded away a couple of other things. I did get a Maractus that apparently has absolutely perfect IVs but a totally neutral nature, though, so that's neat.
