    Default GTS/Ribbons

    Long story short, all ex-Shadow Pokémon can't be traded via GTS. Does anybody know the reasoning behind this?

    Long story: Classic and National Ribbons are now both classified as "Gift" Ribbons. Pokémon with "Gift" Ribbons can not be traded.

    don't like something? fix it. stop complaining about it.

    Maybe they intend on using it for events or something.

    It's a bad idea though, now a bunch of legit Pokemon just got blocked again. First the fail filter, now this.

    Even thought I dont have any ex-shadow Pokemon I still dont see a reason behind this for Game Freak to block these.

    Gamefreak also blocks Marshtomp and other Pokemon with swear words in their names.

    Because the censor system fails. Not the thread to discuss this, though.

    It's not just former Shadow Pokemon, either. The Earth Ribbon, the ribbon that gets awarded to your team when you clear a 100-win streak in Mt. Battle, that's a gift ribbon as well. Of course, this I can't complain about, as it means that I can't screw up and trade my Wynaut over the GTS (yes, I have an emotional attachment to a piece of data, what's it to you?).

    Gen IV had no word blocker.

    But with all the cube ribbons being blocked, something's telling me they might be reused.

    Are you planning to trade them on the GTS? Cause thats all this applies to is the GTS. I have my XD teams in my White game right now.

    never thought those games would be relevant any time soon.

    somethings in the console distance, what could it be? in any case, wow, this only reminds me how i can't take my XD/Colo teams out of those games still u_u CURSE YOU LINK CABLES! -shakes fist wildly- so i guess it doesn't really matter they're blocked.

    but do ppl really trade them on gts in mass? i would've figured it wouldn't have been that bad since there are forums (i know not everyone uses one) to trade with. at least you can stil poke shift or something them into gen 5.

    Note: Just like classic ribbon Pokemon, you can still trade em over Wi-Fi with FCs, or dump em on a chatroom.

    These aren't like PCP.
