Too often I try to trade and it says "This Pokemon has already been traded." Why is it even on display then?!
It's probably because the Pokemon is being traded faster than the server can refresh the list.
Lists are displayed from newest-deposited first (I think). And it's already a lot better at refreshing the list (or at least removing completed trades from it) than G5 was.
I know. What I'm saying is that some of the better deals get snatched up almost instantly (like literally in about 5 seconds or less). So someone else has probably already jumped on it by the time you get to it.
