Does anybody have problems "recruiting" people?!? 'Cause so far it's not working for me lol
magnemite chain for the win
I'm at level 24, had 2 gym leader visits, and STILL nobody wants to be recruited lol
At least one good thing came out of the GTS this time around - the Magnemite chain.
For those who don't know, you deposit a Magnemite in the GTS, and come back after a few minutes. You'll get a Magnemite back. The point of it is to help with your Join Avenue, but it does more than that. The first Magnemite I got had Pokérus with it, and I've heard some people even trade away their shiny Magnemite, or maybe with a master ball attached. It works like a charm.
So, who else has benifited from this?
The Magnemite chain is genius!
I've been visiting loads of people in the DW and sending friend request in the hope I'll be visited. I've uploaded "interesting" pokemon to maximize the chances of this, eg Therian formes and resolute Keldeo.
I see why the Magnemite chain trick would work, but why Magnemite? Why that specific Pokémon?
I did something like that in previous games to try and get an extra master ball, but I used Starly.
Random Matchup is also a good way to get people in Join Avenue.
I'm only doing it to get the nursery, mind. And I need to be Rank 15 for that. I'm currently on Rank 11.
