    A lot of people who are requesting lv. 9 Reshirams are nine-year-olds with a god complex, though some of them could be attempting to find new GTS glitches such as cloning and whatnot. I agree with Kyuuketsuki. Instead of completely banning these requests, put a filter on. "Searching for: Pikachu Not Willing to Trade: Arceus, Manaphy, etc. (maybe up to ten?)".

    They should also add more search options:

    1: DW Ability (If available)
    2: Shininess
    3: 31 IVs in each stat (Checking boxes for combos)
    4: Event Section (Event trades only)
    5: Nickname Search

    As long as there is a banning system for requesting Pokemon that are impossible to obtain I'll be fine.

    Ah, so here's this thread!

    Anyway, yesterday I had an idea -- you know how on the GTS when you're depositing a Pokemon you absolutely must specify another Pokemon in exchange? What if you don't care? You just want to see what other people are willing to offer for it first?

    This is what "GTS Appraisal" is all about.

    - You select an actual Pokemon from your PC box.
    - The Pokemon is not actually uploaded to GTS -- rather, the GTS uses its species/level/gender to search up all trades that are requesting your Pokemon in exchange.
    - (The search results may also be limited to what you've seen in your Pokedex, to mirror the existing deposit/search functions.)
    - Then you just browse and select which deposited Pokemon you want to trade yours for.
    - And what makes it so awesome: Every search result that pops up is a 100% viable trade that you can do right away. Absolutely no more junk trades or spam clogging up your search results!

    As long as Gamefreak includes a feature that blocks impossible requests like "Zekrom lv. 9 or under" I will be satisfied.

    Along with blocking impossible trade requests, Game Freak needs to put in a regional filter, Japanese players are way too skilled for me

    What? You can restrict GTS searches by region (not actually as useful as it sounds, but at least lets you get more than one page of results) already.

    This is one of the things I hope they'll do something about. So annoying.

    A reverse-search?
    Akromatic and UnovaCastaway like this.

    If that's anything like what I just posted, yes. It would virtually eliminate all junk trades in one fell swoop.

    So basically, I can see who wants my L. 31 Herdier, or L. 25 Spheal, or whatever I want to search? Then it will bring up all trades where my specified pokemon fits? Sounds perfect!

    I would like for people to be able to request held items. Like if you want a Rhyperior, you can request the Rhydon to hold a Protector. This way people won't get screwed over when they want a Pokemon that evolves via trade with held item.

    In addition to what others have said, I would also like to see:
    - Viewable movesets
    - An item trade function (item for item), or at least be able to search for any Pokemon holding a particular item.
    - Better regulation on hacked pokemon. Pokecheck exists, Gamefreak should implement something similar.

    Previously, you could trade via the GTS only for Pokémon you'd already registered in your Pokédex by seeing or catching them. For the first time in the main Pokémon series, Pokémon X and Pokémon Y allow you to receive a Pokémon not yet registered in your Pokédex via GTS trade!
    Awesome.

    Thank goodness they got rid of that restriction. With over 700 Pokemon and counting, it will be more difficult to encounter a decent portion of them in-game.

    Well, nice to see we can trade for pokemon not in our pokedex. Does anyone else think that they're doing that to make our pokedex easier to complete b/c of a lack of backwards compatibility?

    Also, guess what wonder trading is gonna be? People spamming fletchling.

    Interesting... I wonder how they will handle that, exactly. From the very beginning? After the elite 4? Does it just apply to the "Wonder Trade", or will you actually be able to search for each and every Pokemon in the GTS?

    This doesn't really affect me per se, as already have a second near complete set ready to transfer from Gen V to Gen VI, but I know it will make a lot of people happy.
