The other day, I traded a Deoxys (speed forme, I believe) on the GTS for a Sentret. It SOUNDS like a bad trade, and infact it was, given that the Sentret was at lv. 3 and basically sucked. However, I had a good reason for doing so- aforementioned Sentret was holding a Custap berry! I believe those came with those event Regigigas, so it is possible for one to exist. I'm assuming it's a legit Custap berry, therefore.
I did, however, make my fair share of trades that had no upside whatsoever. Traded something just yesterday for a shiny Phione that turned out to be hacked. I THINK it was a Drifblim, but I'm not sure. I know I traded a Drifblim for SOMEthing yesterday- oh yeah, I think it was the My Pokemon Ranch Mew.
...At the risk of going off-topic with good trades, I think I'll end this post here.
I once traded one of my shiny Buizels for a Kecleon to my brother.
And well, it wasn't a trade that was bad for me, but for the other person. I once put up a Yanma on the GTS, and for a joke, I asked for a Mew. About an hour or so later, I got the Mew. I was for sure it was a hack, but it turned out to be legit,as far as I know, being found in Hoenn at level 30
Also, my brother got a legit shiny Regigigas, and all he had to trade was a Bidoof, level 9 and under
A bird in the hand is worth two in the bush.

My Vespiquen for a Murkrow.
My friend had been trying to catch one for a while and had run out of money for balls so I said I would get them one. Didn't wanna surrender my one and it was in the morning so I thought I would get one of the GTS. All the other trades were unfair apart from a Vespiquen one. After I traded I told my friend that I had one for her only to be told "I don't want it anymore, it's a stupid game anyway". Felt like yelling at her right there.

It came out in Japan I think. I've gotten a Custab berry now and plan on multiplying it.
1. I thought Gardenia is a Grass-type fangirl; in addition, I could've sworn that she had a shippy Nando-centric flashback when the latter got framed.
2. I'm tired of seeing Brock, being the designated eunuch of the show. As a result, I would love to see this OT3 to happen:
