What is wrong with most people in GTS trades? (negotiations mostly, regular GTS is hardly even worth mentioning it's so broken i.e. "I want a level 4 blastoise for this").
Here are the typical traders I come across:
1. I somehow have 50000 shinys and hope that you will somehow have the ONE I need/want
2. I will like everything you put up for trade but only have watchogs 9or something equally common/useless) to trade in return
3. I have every legendary imaginable and will show every one to you but will accept absolutely nothing for them
4. I'll wait and offer nothing and turn down every single thing you put up
This encompasses a good 95% or so of people I come across.
#1. You have to be cheating or are chained in a basement somewhere with gruel and only pokemon games to sustain you. It's even more strange/pathetic when these people have only like 5 or even 0 past trades logged
#2. this one I can kinda understand, You are new to trade network and are trying to feel it out maybe even set up some sort of breeding system for these nothing pokemon. But mostly These people have several trades under their belt and don't even offer version exclusives or rarer ones (like eevee or zoura or something)
#3. These ones are just teases, without any sort of good communication system are they even getting some sort of perverse pleasure? They seem to get their hands on everything anyways why are they even in the trade system?
#4. These people just waste everyone time and shouldn't be using this system. Is there such things as trade bot systems that are faulty and constantly go around wasting time?
There are only a few diamonds in the overflow of rough in this system, I try to be one when I can. I have every single pokemon in the New Unova dex and more, If I see someone offering a Rufflet or something I'll offer a vullaby, or is I see someone proposing a kerrablast I'll trade them a shelmet or accelgor then trade back.
As a sidenote, one of the few shinys I've gotten my hands on is a Liepard. No one EVER wants it, Is there something fundamentally wrong with a Shiny Liepard? Do they destroy games or are they handed out by someone in game that makes them un-rare?
