    I used it a lot in Pearl to get special Pokemon by trading off Starters. It's how I got the other 2 starters, my Ho-Oh, and other pokemon. But I haven't used it much since. I'll probably use it once I finish my new playthrough of white.

    Nah I don't, I don't really use the wifi parts in games (not just Pokemon), I'm far happier just playing by myself.

    I think the GTS is only useful once you've completed the game and have access to pretty much any pokemon within the region and beyond. I came across many good doable offers on GTS Search, but because I was early in my game and haven't reached the places where I can get the said pokemon, I couldn't make the trade. Or maybe the person wants pokemon from earlier versions, but I haven't got that particular DW pokemon in my entree forest.

    So I decided to test out the GTS to see if it works. Placed an electrike in there in exchange for a female zorua. Received a Japanese female zorua the next time I logged back in. Didn't quite expect anyone to take me up on my offer.

    It really does depend on the Pokemon. Some shinies are hacked; I've gotten the occasional hacked shiny Golurk that was met at level 100 at Route 1 and in a Cherish Ball or the hacked shiny Golett that was caught in a Master Ball in Chargestone Cave. But others I've gotten seem pretty legit: I nailed a shiny Golurk from Chile that was hatched and had great stats. The Trainer wanted a female Hariyama in return. Once I traded and saw that Golurk's moveset, I seriously think it was bred for the Battle Subway and had outlived its usefulness. The fact that it was shiny was just sheer luck. It's the same with items. Some are probably legit, as I've gotten a Golett or Golurk in an Ultra Ball but they were holding a Master Ball. Now if it was caught in a Master Ball and holding one then yeah, it was probably hacked.

    Shiny Legendaries, on the other hand, I really don't trust. Some of those just scream hack job and I do my best to avoid them.

    I have been using the GTS to randomly trade eggs with people, it's very fun to just try your chances and see what you can get.

    So far I've gotten a Zorua, Snivy, and Larvesta.

    Yes I use it when I have access to an Internet connection which my DSi or 3DS is compatible with. I normally change the gender, levels or locations to find a fair offer for the Pokémon I'm searching for because most of the time the first offers I see are unreasonable.

    I use the GTS sometimes. The people who post pokemon up for impossible trades really bug me though.

    The GTS is good, if you know to look past requests for "Reshiram/Zekrom Level 9 and under". Seriously, if their filtering system is so good that it blocks out Pokemon's default nicknames , why can't it block out impossible trade requests?

    No I never use the GTS at all, I don't feel like filtering past all the unreasonable trade requests.

    Only the deposit option. Usually, I just deposit a Pokemon I don't need and request something I either need for the Pokedex or breeding and then check it next day.

    Not really for the same reason as a lot of people; digging through requests that are just plain stupid is not fun. I've always been kind of a do it myself guy. I want to catch em' all on my own. I only use it to get version exclusives, for which I offer my version equivalent in return to be fair.
    Our goal is to get The Pokemon Company International to return the voice actors from the dub by 4Kids. (seasons 1-8)

    The GTS can offer good trades though. Last night I got a Zorua for a Pachirisu.
