trading starter pokemon early in the game

#1Crimson FlamesPosted 2/8/2014 2:46:54 AM
haven't bought this game yet, however, brother and i might want to get X and Y respectively

question of curiosity is is it possible to keep trading over starter pokemon and then restarting the game, rinse and repeat so that one of us will have all three starters, and possibly even the 3 kanto starters?

if so, how soon is trading allowed? i recall in some of the older versions, they made sure you got a certain ways into the game before trading was unlocked

You can trade as soon as you can catch Pokemon.

It would be so much less of a hassle to just get someone else to breed you a starter, to use the GTS, or even to wondertrade until you get a starter.

its actually pretty easy to get the starters in this one just through normal playing.

all of the gen 1 and 6 starters are available in friend safaris, and you get another gen 6 starter after you finish the game.

This. In fact, don't bother picking Froakie because if you do wonder trades you WILL get some Froakies.
