Do you have a question regarding how to use the Global Trade Station section, or trading in general? Have something to comment on? Or is there anything you'd like to see in the section? Want to see whether one of your Pokémon is hacked? Want someone to check your TSV/ESV? Go ahead and post it here!

Help us make trading a fun and enjoyable experience for everyone.

[Questions not related to these topics (like how to use the GTS in your game) should be posted to their respective threads. For Gens I-VI. For Gen VII. ]

I'm going to go out on a bit of a limb here and just ask. Feel free to correct me. ^_^ If I wanted to do a lottery type thing...would the GTS here be the place to do it? Or should it be in another thread? I apologize if this question is in the wrong section.

Yup! GTS is the right section. But for lotteries you should start a new thread in offers and shops.
I hope to see your lottery soon!

Is this the right thread to ask how cloning works?

Oh...and what's this blue pentagon about that I keep seeing?

Thanks!

In Gen VI games, there's two ways that I know of how to clone.

The first one uses two 3DS's and you need to enter a trade with another trainer. Here's a video explaining it. It could explain this method better than I ever could honestly. It involves sacrificing a Pokemon though, so personally I don't like it.

The second method uses an external device called a powersaves. When using powersaves you can create save states. Using this information, and in combination with pokebank you can mass clone.

All you need to do is first create a save state, then deposit whatever you want cloned into pokebank. Once that's done, all you need is to reload the save state. It'll give you clones of whatever you just deposited, with the originals sitting in pokebank.

All it means is that the Pokemon is from a Gen VI game!

I don't know where to ask this, so here I go : I want to know my Trainer Shiny Value on my Omega Ruby game that I restarted a long time ago and only got back on recently. Is this a service that can be done in the Bulbagarden Trade Station forums ?

Not sure if this is the best place to ask but if I wanted to start a ESV/TSV checking service where would be the best place for me to create the thread?

Btw @Herbizarre if you still need to have that check performed, I can do that for you

Asking here is fine, considering I run it alongside some other staff members. But on a weekly basis (usually Wednesdays) we give out Pokemon on wondertrade or the GTS. Currently we're doing a 12DaysOfBulbaTrade which is 12 days of giveaways. You can check it out on our twitter here: BulbaTrade (@BulbaTrade) | Twitter

Is it to post an image of the Pokemon I'm offering?

Also, in the case of Event Pokemon, is it okay to post an image of the Wonder Card/Description/Whatever, from Bulbapedia?

Both is absolutely fine :) If it's a large image, be sure to put it in spoiler tags please though.

If I received a hacked pokemon in a trade, can I still trade it through the forums for other pokemon? I'm not sure of the origin or how it was hacked (I was suspicious of the fact that it was shiny and had perfect IVs) because I got it through the GTS.

Yes, you can trade hacked Pokémon to other users. Though be sure to tell them you think it's hacked, so they can decide for themselves if they want to receive it :)

To all my lovely users: I realize trading on the forums has been on a decline lately. So if you have any ideas or if there's anything you'd like to see in trade please let me know, feel free to PM me as well.

I will host some giveaways if I ever beat my Ultra Moon. Which I hope is sooner rather than later. ^^;

Hi there,

Is there a place I can post asking for help figuring out if a pokemon I received in WT is legit?
