Trading Shadow Pokemon?

#1TidalFlooodPosted 3/1/2014 9:32:33 AM
Being the horder that I am, I've transferred a good portion of my pokemon from way back in Generatoin III to this game. I see someone offering 5IV Stealth Rock Pineco for a Suicune on GTS and I think to myself I can part with the Suicune I have sitting in my box. Except it says it's a special pokemon so I can't trade it. This is a Suicune obtained from Colosseum and since I can trade a Regeice I can only conclude the reason I can't trade my Suicune is because it was a Shadow Pokemon. Am I right in thinking this and if so why is this limitation in effect?

All Shadow Pokemon have a special ribbon, as such, I assume they can't be traded

So Pokemon with special ribbons can't be traded. What other special ribbons are there?

Also event pokemon with the ribbon. (Event legends(ex: Darkrai can't be traded period, even with no ribbons)

So there is literally no chance of me getting a Darkrai or Arceus until they hold another event?

They can't be traded in the gts or wonder trade, you have to do a direct trade with someone.
