    Default GTS impossible trades?

    Maybe I'm missing something here, but why do 50+% of the trades in the GTS just want a Reshiram/Zekrom level 9 and under?

    It truly baffles me and prevents me from liking it (unless Gamefreak does anything about it...)

    Anyone have any insight?

    Either kids cloning, or asking for hacks. Or 4 yr olds.

    quite often this:

    not sure if you know but the GTS can be tricked to evolve your pokemon:

    1 - put pokemon you want to evolve & ask for something impossible to get (but unlikely to be hacked) ie a level 1-10 male gardevoir

    2 - DON'T EXIT GTS

    3 - make a trade (just any old trade on there bidoof or w/e)

    4 - STILL DON'T EXIT GTS

    5 - take your original pokemon back & due to the other trade it will evolve your pokemon

    (you probably know this already but it's pretty handy if you don't know it!)
    not always but quite often

    it seems like there are things other than boldores or gravelers on there. It's more like a lvl 60-something hydreigon for lvl 9- reshiram. I don't think that above explanation works for a lot of those idiotic trades

    It's really ruining my experience in the GTS...

    What I would like to know is why haven't these kind of trades been outright banned. Really, how hard is it for Gamefreak to install a filter that prevents that sort of trade from even being posted? If I can't ask for a male Latias, why can I ask for a level 9 and under Liepard and not get denied? It makes no sense to me.

    It also almost tempts me to get a copy of PokeSav and trade those nitwits that kind of crap just to slag them off. I'd love to see the expression on some twerp's face when he/she hits the GTS to try and evolve something, only to be greeted with a brand new level 2 Reshiram with a crappy Nature named "Sucker!"...

    I used that trick to evolve Pokèmon before, but the problem was finding a Pokèmon trade to do in the meantime. Even if I searched for a freaking Rattata I only found level 4s offered for a level 100 Mew.
    There's no point in cloning a Rattata (unless they're holding something valuable) and it doesn't evolve through trading. So the point is? No Rattata is worth a lv 100 Mew, not even Joey's.
    It is quite problematic, as it makes it harder to actually do a trade when no one asks for anything reasonable:(

    ...except that I believe someone tried that already but couldn't trade because the GTS refused to take such a Pokémon.

    Is this a trick question? BECAUSE IT'S PRACTICALLY THE REASON I CAN'T EVEN USE THE GTS FOR GOODNESS SAKE. EVEN WHEN SEEKING LEGENDARIES THEY GET UNFAIR.

    ironically the time it's taken posting in this thread bitching about the GTS could be used in the trade station here getting a fair deal (just saying)
