no, you have to actually trade to "see" a pokemon.
I've only had one successful trade with someone decent. Everyone else either disconnects without warning, is way too picky, or just keeps offering common Unova Pokemon/obvious hacked shiny Pokemon.
It's really frustrating. :[
I got a real bad tease today! OTL I found some random kid to trade with, right? First thing I notice is him hovering a shiny Darkrai. Looks fairly legit, too! I spam the !!!!!!!!! like there's no tomorrow. He finally seems to catch on and offers the shiny Darkrai up.
I have plenty of legit Pokemon myself, and a couple of semi-legit hacks. I try cool Pokemon like Zekrom, to Mewtwo, to Deoxys. All sad-faces. I offer Pikachu, Tepig, Zorua, Eevee, Shaymin, Victini. Sad-face-sad-face-sad-face. D8 Starters, no dice. But then! It looks like hope now: He gives a smiley-face to a Tirtouga UT level 1 I have. I'm like "Yay, yay, finally, a real shiny Darkrai for myself!"
So I go to hit the "offer this Pokemon" button, right? ...he disconnects. ._. I was seconds away from getting a shiny Darkrai, and he disconnects. I don't know if it was a wi-fi error on his part, or if he was being a jerk. But...that really annoyed me. Gah, time for another frustrating search for a shiny Darkrai...
Where is a video of this? ._. If there was a Pokemon who was so terribly hacked that it would damage someone's game, then it is a bad hack that won't get past the BW GTS. I've tried hacks that crashed my White version, but the game never saved them. I don't think it's THAT likely someone can do that unless they're doing a direct non-GTS trade with you.Originally Posted by yourlilemogirl
Signature is a WIP for the moment.
For now, I have claimed: Mewtwo, Member's Card, Wide Lens, Honey Gather, and Psystrike.

I prefer the regular GTS because everytime I've done negotiations it's I've never found the pokemon I wanted...

Well, I tried it again. Wound up with some girl from Japan.
It was interesting, though. If I had a PKMN that she had, she'd put up the one she owned.
Turns out that she was interested in my shiny Flareon. I really didn't want to let it go, but things must be done. And I got a shiny Aerodactyl out of it.
