I tried to trade my Ditto and it kept saying "This pokemon can't be traded now". ANY other pokemon I have can be put up for trade but not Ditto. Why?

maybe you're trading it to a game that hasn't unlocked the criteria for having it in that particular version as yet.

Em can't trade for non-Hoenn dex pokemon until you get the Nat Dex in Em. However, I've heard that it is possible to trade non-Hoenn dex pokemon to Em via Col.

You're right^, Coliseum bypasses trade limitations. If you have that game, you can go Emerald to Coliseum to the other one.

Nah, Coliseum completely ignores that. If you have 2 pokemon in your party in one of the advance games, and beat Coliseum, you can trade between them.

Yes, all Generation III games. Ruby, Sapphire, Emerald, Fire Red, Leaf Green. Fixing the machines, if you have 2 gameboys, makes one less step to go through in trading between the advance games.

Well, I was trying to trade it to another Emerald but the other person hasn't beaten the Elite Four yet. I guess that had something to do with it.

Oh well, maybe she can wait to get her own Ditto when she beats the E4.
