    Default Long trades

    Have you ever made any elaborate trades on the GTS?

    For example, a couple weeks ago I traded a Spoink for a lv. 100 Scizor for a lv. 100 Lucario for a shiny Absol.

    And last night I traded a Slugma for a Garchomp for a Kingdra for a Dragonite for a lv. 100 female Lucario for a shiny Fraxure.

    What kind of trades have you made?

    The longest I've done was a legendary tradeback chain. Random Pokémon for a legendary for the next legendary and so on until the last legendary, then I get my random Pokémon back. Of course, that's just one set and doesn't count the permanent trades also included in that.

    I wanted a Zorua from the GTS so I had to breed my Serperier and hatch the egg, trade it for an Oshawott and then trade the Oshawott for the Zorua. Not that long but eh It's my longest.

    When I delivered a lot of Pokémon to someone, we each traded 15ish Pokémon. Most of mine I gave were either bred Pokémon or extra DWFs, and I got some pre-Gen V starters in the deal.

    That's the most elaborate trade I ever made.

    Edit: As for GTS, they're usually not too complicated for me, except if it requires breeding. Rarely, I have to look for the one that the person wants.

    I've traded over several dozen Pokemon from Sapphire to XD: Gale of Darkness to Emerald when I was starting a game on my Sapphire. x_x I can't think of doing any elaborate trades in gen 4 or 5. Maybe 12 max in one sitting? Never any chain-trading on the GTS. :c

    I once did a chain trade that involved something like five different Pokemon, all of them Legendaries. The final Legend was traded off to get a shiny Golurk. So yeah, I've done it before and I'll do it whenever necessary. (Usually when it involves a shiny Automaton or a DW Golett.)
