I figured I'd start a thread where we could exchange info on how to get decent trades with other people on or off the GTS. After seeing the so-maniest player offering a Zigzagoon for a Mewtwo, I thought it'd be fun to talk about how we try to get a fair trade every once in a while. What I try to do, is to try to stick to the tiers Smogon has layed out. Other than that, typing and overall similarity of my Pokémon for the Pokémon that I want to have. For example, Volbeat for an Illumise. I never had any luck finding those, but I had like three Volbeat, so I deposited one, and whaddayaknow? Got an Illumise a couple of hours later. Same thing happened when I deposited a Zigzagoon and asked for a Sentret. Haven't tried this with legendary Pokémon yet, though. Anyway, what about you?
