Do you still use wondertrade and GTS for this gen?

GTS is full of rare Pokémon for easy trades and wondertrade in US/UM S/M, I have gotten many rare or shiny Pokémon. People should go on more especially since this is an easy way to get Pokémon hard to find in sword and shield or to import to those games for breeding.

dont forget that many of these shinies are mire than often hacked. a fair amount come with perfect 6IVs. there are some legit that you get but its the uncommon case. the system isnt perfect for weeding out hacked mons. there are useful mons you can get over GTS WT but there are still a few hacked mons floating around there.

It's only useful if you needed the other starters and version exclusives.

With the new games out and people abandoning this game, this GTS is in the exact same state as XY/ORAS GTS. Full of greedy kids who have no sense of trade value. At least ultra beasts are infinite in USUM.

Wonder trade is still ass.

Breeding rejects galore and starter pokemon you surely have by this point. Along with the route 1 garbage that ruined XY's.

For breeding rare ball combinations hacked (or not hacked) mons are very valuable at this point. That’s my main reason for trading and so others can import them to sword and shield. Also you often find good Pokémon you can use in sw/sh that otherwise would be hard to find without older games. I’m doing rare ball breeding and wonder trades giving them away to people so they have some nice Pokémon to continue breeding.


I've never done a Wonder Trade in Gen VII, and I only used the GTS a few times when I first purchased Sun and Moon, but quickly gave up using it since it was many times more infuriating than the Gen IV GTS.

I haven’t used either for awhile tbh. I may occasionally use them once in awhile though.

Last time I used Wonder Trade was to trade away a bunch HA Mareanie breedjects. Haven’t touched GTS for a while though since I already completed the Pokedex.

I use them once in awhile. Have to be careful on the GTS, due to blatant hackers.

I recently purchased a New 3DS XL after my old 3ds XL had water damage some months after Sun came out. So I'm currently playing UltraMoon. Since I only have the 1 console, I used the GTS to trade pokemon from Sun to UM so I could breed (my team has 4 late-game pokemon and I wanted to use them early) and then I traded my team to Sun for some late-game TMs.

Slow sure, but useful.

I did not play sun & moon the year of release and just started to play this year. I was surprised that GTS and Wonder Trade still work. I'm using a little bit of both. Had luck getting some starers with GTS after many trash tier results. Some in apriball. Tipically i just bred a bunch of pokemon and put the reject on the GTS asking for something and continue to do so untill i get one with HA. I have been succesful doing so that way, but takes time. Most people just sends trash with no HA even if they do have some to spare.
As for WT, that's the opposite case for me. People just sends trash. After many tries did no get any reject, no good iv, HA, nothing but quickball and route 1 & 2 junk people catch to send to others.

I stopped, as everyone has moved on to Sword/Shield, which is a generation that I refuse to support due to Game Freak's bad PR. Also doesn't help that my New 3DS XL's screen cracked over a year ago, and gave up on getting a new one due to my mother's distrust towards eBay and saying that I'd be better off getting a Switch, when I clearly don't want to move to Gen 8 and monetized trading, as it would mean no more trading for me due to being broke.

So I was left with no choice but to retire from Pokemon gaming altogether.


Love when the mods can’t do their jobs properly
Yeah. I do Wonderlockes occasionally and there’s something fun about seeing an active community in past games. I never let hacked Pokémon impact my enjoyment of this as it’s easily ignorable

No because there's hardly anyone to trade with using Wondertrade. It was fun while it lasted but like all other generations eventually people lose interest when something new comes along. :(
