Why are all the GTS for old Pokemon...

Only wanting things like level 100 Arceus?

It is nigh impossible for me to get old Pokemon that I want to use for fun like Meowth/Persian and Klink line.

Because the reasonable trade requests get taken quickly, and they know other players might be desperate enough to make such a ridiculous trade.

Protip: The GTS has an offer function in addition to the search function. This offer function is often overlooked by most, but is actually incredibly helpful.

If you want a pokemon, deposit a starter/scatterbug/deerling and ask for it. It's a lot less hassle and much more likely to work.

I always do reasonable trades.
Example: Charmander for squirtle
Haunter for Haunter

I picked up nearly 200 pokemon on the GTS in order to finish my dex. It takes some time to find a reasonable trade, but if you're patient, they're bound to pop up eventually.

Or said players just don't care, having tons of hacked legendaries anyhow.

Well if you have a bit of patience i could give you a meowth for free (when i start breeding them for myself).

You'll have to wait until the game finally decides to hatch a 6IV galewings female Talonflame for me (takes unusually long tbh) ... in that goddamn luxury ball i want (which is the reason i still breed with a 5IV female). ... anyways meowth will be my next project

I only do reasonable trades; starters for starters, legendaries for legendaries, version exclusives for version exclusives, etc.
