WTF is wrong with people on the GTS?

#1cervidae_raePosted 11/9/2013 7:08:30 PM
Like, I've seen SOME reasonable trades, but most are asking for legendaries or rares for Pokemon that are notably not that great. Especially Kanto/Johto Pokemon. And then some of them have unreasonable level requests. I once saw someone asking for a level 1-10 Gengar... And as we all know, Pokemon that haven't even been released yet.

These people. I S2G.

It's pretty stupid IMO. I've found though if I put something decent up, and ask for something reasonable, I'll pretty much always get it.

I'm sick of reading threads about this, because:

1) People actually do trade Xernas for ordinary pokemon, and
2) Legendaries form a currency of sorts on GTS. You trade what you want to get rid of for Xernas, then you exchange Xernas for whatever poke you're after. Having an intermediate poke that everyone wants makes trading much easier - it's the equivalent of using money to buy stuff instead of bartering.

everyone wants a yveltal on gts

It's been like this since Gen 4. At least now you can filter out most of the legendaries (the birds don't get filtered, for whatever reason).

TC, it's much better if you offer.

I wanted gastrodon so I checked gts and all of the people wanted either legends or unobtainable pokemon.

I simply offered a random clefairy I caught in a safari and got my french gastro in around 30 minutes.
